John Martin, The Seventh Plague, 1823

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:  That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2 Peter 3:1-4
Most people have the notion that things in the world will always remain the same as each day arrives. The sun rises and the sun sets. Summer, then fall, winter, then spring. It always comes, year after year, you can count on it. While we can trust the mechanistic motion of the planet as it hurdles through space and time in our solar system, the affairs of humanity are far from mechanical. Nothing remains the same, and the news fluctuates one way then the next; one day there is bad news, another day there is good news. The point is, that as time moves forward everything around us is constantly changing, and subject to a million variables.
One thing that many people never count on, or at least try to put out of their mind, is that one day God will judge the world. What that means to us personally is that our lives are accountable to Him for everything that we have done.  God will also judge the world collectively, meaning that His judgment will fall not just on you and me, but the entire planet.
Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
Acts 17:31
As Christians we know that Jesus bore the penalty for our sin on the cross, so we will not face judgment for sin, but we will face the Judgment Seat of Christ, the place where our works are judged by fire (2 Cor.5:10). But for those who refuse Christ, or those people who are yet to come to Him for forgiveness and cleansing, judgment is coming, although for the moment it waits in the wings–or is it? Is it possible we are facing judgment right now?
I was thinking about the Ebola crisis in West Africa and how this plague is beginning to spread around the world. It starts in one place and because of the movement of people the plague travels into other population centers. From West Africa it has spread to Europe and the United States. I just read that the country of Mali now has a case of Ebola, and of course here in the States Ebola is in Texas, Atlanta, and now New York.  I have even seen a few news articles that there may be more cases in the U.S., it is just being covered up and called malaria and typhoid. {1} If that turns out to be true, we are in serious trouble.
And then I began to think about the plague of Ebola in relation to the ten plagues of Egypt as told in the Bible. You remember the story I’m sure. The story is told in Exodus 7-12.  Moses went to Pharaoh and requested that he release the Hebrew people so that they could journey into the wilderness to worship the Lord. Pharaoh responded to Moses by saying, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go” (Ex. 5:2).
Well, it did not take long for Pharaoh to find out about the Lord because not long after God sent ten plagues upon the land of Egypt. For the sake of brevity I have listed them here followed by my commentary.
1. Turning the Nile river into blood. The Nile was worshipped as a god and several of the gods of Egypt were connected with it. This caused the water to become unusable and killed the fish as well.
2. Plague of frogs. This plague was directed to the god Hekt, a frog-headed goddess. Frogs overran the land and when they died it became unbearable to the people of Egypt.
3. The plague of lice.  This plague was actually a small gnat; the air and land was filled with a small stinging gnat. The sting was very irritating to the skin and would overwhelm the nose, mouth, and eyes. The dust of the land was turned into these tiny swarming insects. I don’t think we fully grasp how horrifying this particular plague was.
4. The plague of flies. In this plague the flies were a type of biting dog-fly that would cause great irritation, especially to the eyes. God protected Israel during this plague allowing Pharaoh to see the hand of God, as He separated the people of Israel from the Egyptians.
5. The plague of murrain. This plague destroyed the livestock of Egypt; the cattle, horses, camels, donkeys, sheep, and goats. The cattle and other animals of the Israelites were unharmed.
6. The plague of boils. This was a disease resulting in very painful (burning, swelling) boils and blisters that would rise up in the skin.  Gesenius calls it an inflamed ulcer, a type of leprosy causing the body to become encrusted with black scales and a swelling of the feet. {2}
7. The plague of hail and fire. This was a very destructive storm that left Egypt a broken, devastated land. Hail fell upon man and beast and also on the fields; the hail was accompanied by thunder and lightning that burst upon the ground.  Interestingly, God demonstrated grace before this plague was unleashed by warning Pharaoh to gather whatever cattle and crops remained to protect them from the storm.
8. The plague of locusts. This plague finished the crops of Egypt. The locusts left nothing behind; every tree, and all plant life were consumed. The land itself was darkened by layer upon layer of locusts.
9. The plague of darkness. This was an unearthly darkness that could be felt. This supernatural darkness was directed toward Ra the sun-god; it demonstrated the power of God over all of Egypt. The Israelites however had light in their dwellings.
10. The plague of the death of the first-born. The power of life and death is in the hand of the God of heaven. The Israelites were protected by an act of faith. They had to kill a male lamb and smear its blood on the top and sides of the doorway. The lamb was then to be roasted and eaten as a Passover lamb. This prefigured the sacrifice of Christ, the Lamb of God.
As you have seen, God directed each plague against the gods of the Egyptians.  Is God doing this with Ebola? Will the god of  science become ineffective, unable to stop the progression of the deadly Ebola virus? Will this become a judgment plague just like the painful boils and blisters the Egyptians suffered?  What about the death of the first-born? Will Ebola consume not just the first-born of our families, but everyone? Will it touch all of us in some way? I only hope the answer is no to all of those questions.
But then there is the statement of Jesus:
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.  Luke 21:11
Nothing is more fearful to mankind than famine and pestilence. Famine refers to scarcity of harvest. Of course, if the crops fail people go hungry. In the United States, California is currently experiencing a severe drought which is affecting crop production. The San  Joaquin Valley, sometimes called the “salad bowl of the world” is in danger of becoming a dust bowl. Incredibly, part of this is manmade because of environmental politics. {3}
Pestilence refers to “any epidemic outbreak of a deadly and highly infectious disease, such as the plague.” {4} In the case of Ebola thousands of people have perished and unless God intervenes thousands more will perish as well. The danger however doesn’t just come from the disease–just as dangerous is the panic coming from the population and governments who refuse to implement proper protocols to protect the uninfected population. Unfortunately, politics, government denial, and cover up will help to spread the disease.
Plagues and pestilence are definitely part of the end-time scenario. Just as with ancient Egypt, God will allow pestilence as an act of divine judgment. The pattern is in the Bible. The Lord does have abundant mercy and grace, however, His patience with men does have a limit, and He has appointed a day for both reconciliation and judgment. That is what the book of Revelation is all about. And sometimes when God begins to move, pestilence goes before Him.

God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.  And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.  Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet.  He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting.

Habakkuk 3:3-6
NOTE: Lest anyone misunderstand, I am not saying that the people of West Africa are under the judgment of God, nor the United States, Europe, or any other place. I am just trying to point out prophetic patterns in the Bible and how God at times seems to deal with humanity. I am not a prophet, nor do I always correctly discern the mind of the Lord. Perhaps God intended that the more prosperous countries should help the people of Africa. Because the world was slow to respond the rest of the world may suffer as well. If we had intervened in West Africa and used our resources in a way to help the people overcome extreme poverty and Ebola, we would not be facing a possible epidemic in the States. Who is to say that Ebola in the United States  is not a judgment because of our selfishness and desire for extreme comfort, rather than sacrifice, to help those in need who desperately need our help. Jeff Wingo
 The Lord will judge the world in righteousness, and He has appointed a day when the prophetic hammer will fall. Just as pestilence refers to a plague that affects the human body, there is also a plague that affects the mind; and it is called energeia plane’ or strong delusion. The word “energeia” always refers to supernatural power, whether the source is God or Satan. “Plane'” refers to a mental straying, one led from the right way to roam all over the place. In other words, no stability, and no way to find truth; error which leads to deceit or fraud {5}
That definition is actually frightening when you think about it, especially when you look at the context of the verse in 2 Thessalonians 2:11. The most frightening aspect though is that this strong delusion comes not from Satan but from God! That is judgment of the highest order. The precedence is in the book of 2 Kings:
And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.  And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him.  And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.  Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.
2 Kings 22:20-23
 The Lord sent a prophetic spirit to cause the false prophets of Ahab to lie to him so that he would be lead astray; and in this case the lying spirit led Ahab to his death. That is what Paul’s word is about in 2 Thessalonians chapter two. The source of the energeia plane’ or strong delusion is God; “that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (vs. 12). That is when the grace of God has reached its limits, and that is frightening. Jesus told us not to fear “them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matt.10:28).
Part of the strong delusion are fearful sights in the heavens. If you consider the power that the alien delusion has taken on in our culture, especially through the medium of entertainment, it is clear that there is a conditioning process taking place; and it is leading to a belief that aliens exist, and it is building up to alien disclosure. Even the Pope and his cohorts are talking about aliens as they prepare humanity for the inevitable–alien disclosure. {6} Even the astronomers of NASA are also talking about the discovery of alien life and possible alien disclosure. {7} I believe that is proof that something of a deep spiritual nature is going on.
Fearful sights in the heavens refers to something in the sky that strikes terror or fear; and that describes aliens, especially for those unfortunate people who suffer because of episodes of so-called “alien abduction.” For those who may misunderstand let me be clear–fallen angels are the cause of authentic UFO and alien activity, including the alien abduction experience. Those impacted by it are being influenced and attacked by fallen angels.  It is a spiritual issue that will overtake humanity in the end of days. I believe it is the energeia plane’ or strong delusion of the last days.
When Jesus used the words “great signs” referring of course to aerial phenomena, he used a word which refers to “a sign, prodigy, portent, i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature.” It can also refer to “signs portending remarkable events soon to happen.” {8} Jesus also said that false christs will perform great signs, and they will also perform “wonders” (Matt.24:24).  The word “wonders” is the Greek word teras which refers to  “something so strange (in the heavens) as to cause it to be watched or observed. {9}  That is the same word the used by the Apostle Peter when quoting a prophecy from Joel: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke (Acts 2:19).
I am of the opinion that the signs in the heavens coupled with the power of spiritual deception are what we refer to today as UFOs and aliens. The prophet Joel referred to a people God calls “his army” (Joel 2:11) and “a great and strong people.” (Joel 2: 2). Joel says that there has never been a people like this and there shall never be a people like this again “to many generations.”  This refers to the demonic locusts unleashed in the book of Revelation chapter nine. And that verse points to an alien invasion of our planet that will be unprecedented, and it also points as well to the unveiling of the Beast from the abyss who is the final Antichrist of the last days.
To be continued….
If you would like to know more about the alien delusion of the last days and the ascendancy of the Antichrist then I recommend my book, Alien Antichrist: The Terrifying Truth about Aliens and UFOs, Antichrist, and the End of Days. You can get the book from Amazon by clicking the link on the right side of the page near the top. You can also get the book at Barnes and Noble and at other bookstores that offer print on demand books.
The book lays out the whole scenario for you. I start at the beginning as I explain who the aliens are and how they have impacted humanity since the beginning of time. Then I demonstrate what will happen once Satan and his cohorts are cast out of the heavens as revealed in Revelation chapter 12. I also explain what the spirit of antichrist is and how it operates in the world. Using the biblical texts I also reveal who the Antichrist actually is (his identity is in your Bible), and how he will impact the world as he turns the current New World Order into a satanic empire that the Bible calls Babylon the Great.
Thanks for visiting.

The city of New York is in a panic as it has been reported that a doctor who recently returned from Guinea has been stricken with the Ebola virus.
The Governors of both New York and New Jersey have put new restrictions on those entering the country from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Lots of crying going on about “rights.”
If President Obama had put quarantine rules in place months ago as he should have we would not be facing this crisis in the United States. Unfortunately, we have weak leadership more interested in big White House dinners and the game of golf. Gotta have priorities I guess.
