Beginning of The End––21st Century Pandemics Flood the Globe

increase-deseases        With increased awareness, scientists specializing in medical history realize that this present earth is now pelted with multiple new viruses, death knell diseases and unimaginable pandemics such as never before. Some have even tried to warn that Ebola is just a recent ‘first’ of new diseases, but many many more follow.

Not only is the human medical establishment fighting these new, more exotic diseases, older maladies––i.e. mumps, measles, polio, Alzheimer’s, various cancers, chickenpox, gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted diseases, cardiovascular ailments, lupus, lyme disease, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.––long thought under vaccination or other controls, now rush back over societies.

But other new diseases have also attacked the world. As Steve Watson writes in ‘There Will Be Pestilences: Why Are So Many Deadly Diseases Breaking Out All Over The Globe Right Now?,’ “Ebola, Marburg, Enterovirus and Chikungunya––these diseases were not even on the radar of most people coming into 2014, but now each one of them is Chikungunyamaking headline news.

“Why are so many deadly diseases breaking out all over the world right now?  Is there some kind of a connection, or is the fact that so many horrible diseases are arising all at once just a giant coincidence? . . . For example, there are now more than a million cases of Chikungunya in Central and South America, and authorities project there will be millions more in 2015.”

Consider the various forms of Avian and Swine Flues washing over the world in the last several years, as well as other new illnesses, i.e.: Fifth Disease, Fowleri Virus, Hanatvirus, Monkeypox, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), salmonella, etc.

Medscape categorizes these  new 21st Century maladies as EIDs or ‘Emergences of Infectious Diseases’ and defines their cause as: “The emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases involves many interrelated factors.

“Global interconnectedness continues to increase with international travel and trade; economic, political, and cultural interactions; and human-to-human and animal-to-human interactions.

“These interactions include the accidental and deliberate sharing of microbial agents and antimicrobial resistance and allow the emergence of new and unrecognized microbial disease agents. As the 21st century begins, already new agents have been identified, and new outbreaks have occurred.”

So how are people in this post-modern world suppose to protect themselves from this onslaught of invisible physical or mental enemies?  Aside from all possible human precautions: i.e. cleanliness, hand-washing and estrangement from people coughing, etc., the only safety is absolute faith in God’s Everlasting Arms.

As one king prayed in wholesale Christian Bibles: “If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust . . . whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be; What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, . . . which shall know every man the plague of his own heart . . . Then hear Thou in heaven Thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart Thou knowest; (for Thou, even Thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men; (1 Kings 8: 37 – 39).”
