There Will Be Pestilences: Why Are So Many Deadly Diseases Breaking Out All Over The Globe Right Now?

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease

Did you know that the symptoms of the early stages of Ebola are very similar to flu symptoms? Here is a scary scenario for you;  What if the Ebola virus indeed became airborne, (as the articles below warn of), at the same time a flu pandemic sweeps the globe, (article below)?   Could you see a situation of mass panic as people unsure of what disease their neighbor has, (flu or Ebola), go into lock-down....or worse against their neighbor?  Hospitals would be inundated with patients fearing the worst.   While this scenario may only be conjecture, the bible does indicate that a time is coming during the days of the Tribulation when many millions of people will die by the sword and plague.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

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 making headline news.  So why is this happening?  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?  And this could be just the beginning.  For example, there are now more than a million cases of Chikungunya in Central and South America, and authorities are projecting that there will be millions more in 2015.  The number of Ebola cases continues to grow at an exponential rate, and now an even deadlier virus (Marburg) has broken out in Uganda.  We have gone decades without experiencing a major worldwide pandemic, and many people believed that it could never happen in our day and time.  But now we could potentially see several absolutely devastating diseases all racing across the planet at the same time.

Nightmare Scenario: Ebola 'Could Become Airborne'
Anthony Banbury, chief of the United Nations Ebola mission, admits that the international community has been "a bit late" to respond to the epidemic. There are also worries Ebola could become airborne and spread in the United States and around the world through travel and other means. "The longer it moves around in human hosts in the virulent melting pot that is West Africa, the more chances increase that it could mutate," Banbury told the Telegraph. "It is a nightmare scenario [that it could become airborne], and unlikely, but it can't be ruled out."

“Apocalyptic Scenario”: Discoverer of Ebola Fears Virus Could Mutate
One of the scientists who discovered Ebola fears the virus could mutate and cause many more people to become infected, an “apocalyptic scenario” that threatens to cause a “humanitarian catastrophe,” according to Professor Peter Piot. Professor Piot was part of a team of scientists that first discovered the Ebola virus in 1976 after analyzing a blood sample from a Belgian nun who fell ill in Zaire. In an interview with the Guardian, Piot agreed that the more people who become infected with Ebola, the greater chance of the virus mutating. “Yes, that really is the apocalyptic scenario,” said Piot. “Humans are actually just an accidental host for the virus, and not a good one. From the perspective of a virus, it isn’t desirable for its host, within which the pathogen hopes to multiply, to die so quickly. It would be much better for the virus to allow us to stay alive longer.”
