Frankenmosquitoes About to Be Released

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence in the Last Days

Does God necessarily need to create pestilences on his own as a judgment to the world, or does he only need to step back, (remove his hand of protection), and allow mankind to destroy himself with the awful things he himself creates?  Maybe something like a Frankenplague of genetically modified insects that are created for one purpose but end up having serious unintended consequences, (article below).

Frankenmosquitoes About to Be Released
Earlier this month, the FDA made available a draft environmental assessment predicting that the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes in Key Haven, Florida, would have “no significant impact”—which means that the approval for their release is imminent. The FDA’s determination is based largely on data submitted by Oxitec, the company producing the GM mosquitoes. The stated purpose of this experiment—and make no mistake, this is all wildly experimental, and widely criticized—is to eradicate mosquito populations that are responsible for spreading diseases like dengue fever and Zika.
The Zika outbreak may be linked to the release of Oxitec’s GM mosquitoes in Brazil three years ago, which was also done for the purpose of combating dengue fever.

CDC Chief: More Than 30 States at 'High Risk' for Zika Transmission

He said 30 or more states are at risk of transmission -- southern states more so than others. And warmer weather accelerates the danger:
