Zika - The New Plague

Zika - The New Plague

Scripture: Mark 16 v 16 - 18:
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongue; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

Matthew 24 v 7: "...and there shall be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."

All the above words were spoken by Jesus Christ in His Earthly ministry to prepare us for when we face trials and tribulations. By His grace, and our faith in His words, nothing should be able to harm His people. If we fall into sin we must realise that there are consequences to deal with.

Jesus also said In the world you shall have tribulation but I have overcome the world. We have this same Jesus alive in our hearts. We are no longer "only human" we are called "peculiar". We do not fit into this world system under Satan's control, we have been translated into the Kingdom of Light.

Zika is the new menace to emerge. People of Brazil who have been infected by the Aenes mosquito, which also causes Dengue Fever, are discovering their newborn babies are deformed by a virus called Zika. Over 4000 babies have recently been born with brain defects. Doctors do not know how badly the children will be affected. Probable outcomes are blind, deaf and dumb, lame, and severely retarded children.

So far there are 3 cases confirmed in New York and one in Denmark. The situation has suddenly worsened by the knowledge that the common household mosquito can also transmit this virus. These mosquitoes are confined to places inside the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn but it is a vast area of the world. 

Another factor to add to the pile of woes is that the Olympics takes place in Brazil this year. Sales of mosquito repellent, and nets over beds are going to rocket.  There is a need to prevent pregnancy until both parents can be tested and cleared. There are going to be huge backlogs in the laboratories. Brazil is also going through a financial crisis.

South America seems to be earmarked for plagues. Not long ago the deadly Swine Flu Virus came from Mexico. This continent grows and supplies cocaine to the whole world resulting in millions of addicts burdening society. Jesus also said What you sow you will surely reap.

Nobody seems to worry if they are sowing misery and death to millions of people until it come home to roost via millions of deadly mosquitoes. Then panic sets in and billions of dollars need to be found to fight the new plague.

Jesus always speaks the truth and God our Father gave Him to us so that anyone who believes in Jesus will be saved for eternity. Believers will be spared if they have faith in the words that no deadly thing shall harm them.

Don't tempt the Lord by deliberately handling poisonous creatures to prove his Word. Just know that if it comes near you accidentally you will be safe from harm. By His Blood we are protected plus we have on us the full spiritual armour of God. Jesus within us says lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. He does the healing, not us.

Our God is not blind to the corrupt doings on this planet and He says Vengeance is Mine, I will repay! We pray for crop failure of the coca plants in South America to kill the source of evil but the world should pray for crop failure of all the evil seeds they have sown. They will reap a hundred fold return and its all their own doing.

Our God is merciful too and will abundantly pardon and heal those who turn to Him in true repentance.  Our testimonies of healing and deliverance must be heard to bring sinners to the Cross.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, we are horrified and saddened to see those small babies with deformed heads and small brains. Jesus told us 2000 years ago these things would increase when the end was near. I pray those families come to believe in Jesus so that healing may come for their children. I pray that the drug cartels are completely destroyed along with their poisonous crops. May God arise and our enemies be scattered. In Jesus' name. Amen.
