What is it that we see happening here? Some say just a migration of locusts. Some say God’s wrath and judgment.
Official reports seem to agree that the swarm contained roughly 30,000 locusts, but also stated that swarms could reach numbers into the hundreds of thousands.
Video footage showed swarms of the insects creeping about on the walls of the holy building, and even people walking outside were covered in bugs.
All the news sources cited the fact that the “Biblical” aspect of the phenomenon was evident, but they also state they do not think this has any kind of “religious” connotation.
Still, crews were said to be working very hard to clean the mess up and rid the place of the swarm as soon as possible.
What makes this whole situation even more mind boggling is the fact that people from that area who were interviewed (as you can read in the links above) say this was the first time anything like this has ever happened.
There was another locust plague that happened in the Syrian region in 1915. That plague lasted from February to June. Some places saw a continuation of the plague into October. Locals at that time said they had never seen locusts in that number in the area in their lifetimes.
Still, it seems an odd thing to happen. Especially considering that the weekly Torah reading, going on at the same time as this infestation, was the story about the plague of locusts that came to convince Pharaoh to let the Israelites go.
There’s no doubt there have been plenty of signs to signify an end of times scenario. Wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, and more, all from the list you’ll find in the Scriptures. The Bible also says that not even the angels in Heaven know that great and final day. Only God knows that. So, again, I have no basis to make a claim on.
What I WILL say is this. I intend to live in such a way that if Jesus were to descend any moment, I will be ready to go with Him.
What about you?
