Bible Prophecy Commentary:
Pestilences of this importance and lethality reminds me of the Pale horse of Rev 6:8 – the fourth Seal broken. This rider (Death) and his accomplice (Hell) have been given power over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth – pestilences. We have much disease all over the earth today and it seems to be increasing in strength and effectiveness to kill. If this spreads it could get real bad. Keep alert, keep watch and keep in prayer.
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" – Luke 21:28
