Swine Flu: a biblical Prophecy?

I am not sure how destructive the current outbreak of swine flu is likely to be, but the Bible prophesies disease epidemics that will kill millions. This outbreak could be the partial fulfilment of those prophecies. The pivotal prophecy that Mr. Herbert Armstrong used to constantly remind the church of is found in Matt.24:7.

The events outlined there are described as "the beginning of sorrows." Of course, these prophetic warnings have been rejected by Joe Tkach and his loony supporters, and also by a growing cabal of insane scoffers, especially the mindless group that tend to coalesce around AW blog, feeding on endless gossip, innuendo and slander. But the madness of scoffers was foretold by God thus 2 Pet.3:3-5.

Meanwhile, the WHO and other health agencies are now panicking, while trying to reassure the public that all will be well. But if this outbreak is a fulfilment of prophecy, all their health measures and reassurances will prove useless.

However, God's elect has nothing to fear. For they have this promise Psalm 91:1-15. And all the promises of God are (2 Cor.1:20).

>>Why is this blog so dead?<<

This blog is read by many people who do not comment. In addition, this blog is for genuine Christians, and as in the days of Noah, there may only be 8 of them on the earth!

Now that is a thought worth pondering!!

Plus this topic was promoted on Compuserve Forum thus: "Your seeder on the Swine Flu was chosen to be promoted on the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday, May 7th.

Thank you for your participation.

Ivy, forum staff"

And on the 8 May this was the response: " At present your seeder generated 101 messages and has had 3542 page views!

Thanks again for posting it and for providing the relevant verses when asked so that it could be promoted."

The salutary lesson is, one must not judge by appearances!

So tell me Tom, what do you think of Herbert W. Armstrong's racial policies (against interracial marriage and he advocated segregation in one sermon)?

As you may know, they were not based on any biblical teaching. Personally, I never paid much notice to these policies, as I wasn't planning to marry a white woman - unless, of course, it was God's will, which it wasn't.

So, if the bible is so great at prophecies why didn't it freaking say "swine flu in 2009".

Are you sure it wasn't the previous flu epidemic, or the bubonic plague or the Black Death or......

Bonkers.

So I guess this means you will not vaccinate yourself or your family against H1N1?
A little chlorine in the gene pool every now and then is A Good Thing.

If Swine Flu is one of the biblical pestilences that is prophesied to kill millions, all vaccinations will be in vain.

I am not absolutely sure what you mean, especially about the phrase, "God's churches."

Anyway, thanks for the web site referral. I have book marked it for future reference.
