“2019-2020 U.S. Flu Season: Preliminary Burden Estimates “, CDC – 2/28/2020
Bible Prophecy Commentary: Pestilences Ramp Up –
Contrary to skeptical reasoning concerning the Coronavirus outbreak and the seasonal flu, they are not the same.
“WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press briefing“,
“This is a unique virus, with unique features. This virus is not influenza,” Tedros said Monday. “We are in uncharted territory.”
This being said this COVID-19 cannot be equated to the effects of the seasonal flu but yet many people still want to compare the two as similar. We must not take this opinion. As the numbers indicate and based on current testing and results this COVID-19 has a death rate of 34 times the rate of regular flu. Now that’s serious and we must respect it for its effects.
As for the seasonal flu, the CDC says that from October 1, 2019, through February 22, 2020, there have been: between 32 million and 45 million illnesses in the United States during this flu season, and somewhere between 18,000 and 46,000 deaths. So this year it looks like the death rate for the flu will be about one-tenth of one percent.
So you can see that the data is there but many people don’t care about the data and believe mainly what the MSM has been blabbing or what some uninformed person has told them. Time to hear the truth folks.
And the truth, IMO, is that this is a Biblical pestilence that is partially fulfilling end-time prophecy. The Lord will send pestilences in the end days as well as severe storms, earthquakes, war, death, famine and economic calamities across the globe. Why? Rebellion of His word, and laws. Rejection of His Son sent by God to save mankind through His shedding of His blood paying the full penalty of our sin. But we must confess Him as Lord and Savior, confess our sins and then amend our ways – repent. And we do this as often as daily or more.
It’s time to get right before the Lord friends. The time is now, the door is still open. But as these signs grow more intense and more frequent and as more and more Bible Prophecy is being rolled out before our eyes, the door could be slammed shut (Matt 25:10-13) at the rapture of His Bride. After this, the Tribulation starts and it will be a terrible time.
None of us knows when our name will be called to enter eternity so get right today so you can stand before the Lord of all Creation.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh … Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” -Luke 21:28, 36 (KJV)
