    To All,

    Apparently the West Coast cities have so many homeless people living in cardboard and tent dwellings that they have "Poop" patrols you can call to have feces picked up by city workers. Rodents are out of control and disease is rapidly getting out of control: measles, typhoid, and bubonic plague. Soon to follow will be cholera, norovirus, and rickettsial.

    Bubonic Plague: The three most common forms of plague are: Bubonic plague, an infection of the lymph nodes; Pneumonic plague, an infection of the lungs; Septicemic plague, an infection of the blood . Symptoms include fever, headaches, and vomiting.

    Cholera: A highly contagious disease that results in severe diarrhea, dehydration, and death if left untreated.

    Measles: A blotchy, reddish-brown skin rash typically develops 4 days after viral exposure. Usually it starts with blotchy discoloration on the face, particularly around the hairline, then gradually extends to the neck, shoulders, arms, torso, legs, and feet.

    Norovirus: Infection include vomiting, watery diarrhea, and stomach pain.

    Rickettsial:
    Signs and symptoms differ slightly depending on the type of rickettsial disease. However, like other viral or bacterial exanthems, most patients experience fever, headache, and malaise (feeling generally unwell) and a widespread rash of some description.

    Rocky mountain spotted fever
    • Fever, headache, confusion, aching muscles, gastrointestinal symptoms
    • Rash from day 2–3, consisting of of small red blotches on wrists and ankles that become widespread and sometimes blister
    • 20% of cases do not develop rash (spotless rocky mountain spotted fever)
    Rickettsialpox
    • Headache, chills, aching muscles, runny nose, sore throat, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain
    • Red raised spot develops at site of mite bite, later forming a dry scab (eschar)
    • Rash distributed on the face, neck, trunk and extremities, and is easily confused with rash of varicella (chickenpox)
    Boutonneuse fever
    • Fever, headache, malaise, aching muscles
    • In half the cases, a dry scab known as a tache noire (black spot) develops
    Louse-borne typhus
    • Fever and intractable headache
    • Rash initially splotchy, developing into raised red spots
    Murine typhus
    • Similar to louse-borne typhus but tends to have a milder and shorter course
    • Flea bite does not have an eschar
    Scrub typhus
    • Generalised swelling of the lymph nodes is common
    • Fever and headache
    • Rash occur 1–3 weeks after a mite bite and is a dry scab-like lesion
    • Rash usually only around the trunk and has a short duration

    Typhoid: Poor appetite, headaches, generalized aches and pains, fever, and lethargy.

    Typhus: Fevers and chills, body aches, nausea, vomiting, or a rash, which usually occurs around the fifth day of being sick.​


    I'm reminded of the old "MAD Magazine" Alfred E. Neuman: What Me Worry?

    To All,

    Most people living in a problem-ridden city think that they won't be affected because they don't interact with the homeless. But that's not true. There are GATED communities within a mile of these homeless, and rats are more than happy to venture into the surrounding neighborhoods.

    And SURPRISE, it ain't the rats per se, IT'S THE FLEAS.

    So when people walk their dogs in the vicinity between the homeless and the gated, the fleas are more than happy to expand their domain, -- right through the front door of those who thought they were secure.


    Congratulations, these people chose to stay behind, and they get to share in the plagues,
    Bobby Jo

    Did you read Rev. 18:4? -- And there ain't no tribulation era "rapture", so who ever chooses to say in a major city will GET to share in the PLAGUES! But that ain't the end of the fun, because whatever turns the sun to "black as sackcloth" and moon to "blood", will also cause internal bleeding in which blood will ooze from every orifice and people would seek death, but they will not die.

    And of course the "end" to that fun will start when the kings of the earth realize that they're not just killing their enemies, but they're killing themselves, and they STOP launching Nuclear Weapons and dropping Nuclear Bombs.

    So either flee to the "mountains" and watch the goings on from the comfort of a zero-gravity chair while you sip lemonade, or watch it up close. -- And we're about 2 1/2 years from THAT fun.

    I am curious that you state noirovirus will be next, don't you have that in the US already, it's been around for years in the UK, in fact it usually has an annual run.
    You have mentioned your interpretation of revelations a number of times, can I ask what preparations you yourself are making- do you live in a built up area ?
    Have you started to stock pile yourself with provisions ?
    You see most of us are not in situations where we can move or change our circumstances - just wondered , really just curious, how you are going to handle it all ( just being nosey really ! )
    Are you preparing for your neighbours, friends ect ?

    Every square mile of the country has homeless at some point. Most people do not have as permanent income or shelter as they plan for.

    Can I just ask another question- how do you know that the plagues have not already started to happen- years ago we had the black plagues here, we have also had small box, diphtheria, measles, mumps, we have had emboli . I am just wondering, in context to me asking about the nuroviros you mentioned, whether or not what you think will happen started quite some time ago.
    I am new to studying revelation - so I am just pondering things at the moment X
    Just so that you know I believe that the last days started with Jesus, after his ascension.
    I have not read enough threads to know where you stand on the subject of when you consider the end times to have begun.

    Revelation 18:4
    [4] And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.


    “Come out of her, My people...” that you receive not her plagues should become evident to any eyes “the her” is world-wide as world-wide as the plagues on all flesh. As are the woes. Come out of the world, My people ...walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. All flesh is plagued. But the Spirit IS Life. Why do we then narrow it down to a single religion when it is obvious there are plagues and woes world-wide? Do we just ignore the seals are already opened on all flesh? ...
    Revelation 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

    Mark 4:4-6
    [4] And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. [5] And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: [6] But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. <yet future??

    Revelation 18
    2 ... “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
    It has become a dwelling place of demons,
    a haunt of every foul spirit,
    a haunt of every foul and hateful bird;
    3 For all nations have drunk the wine of her impure passion,
    and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her,
    and the merchants of the earth have grown rich with the wealth of her wantonness.”
    4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

    Ummmmmm, this isn't a "spiritual" warning. This is a PHYSICAL warning to Christians living in major cities of the world. And if Christians ignore this warning they WILL share in her PLAGUES.

    Remember, Lot had two angels to escort he and his family out of harms way, and we have JOHN to guide not just four, but thousands and tens of thousands out of harms way.

    I would propose that not "every square mile" of urban areas are invested with tent cities, human feces, rodents, and fleas. But if you want to disregard the Warnings afforded by Scripture, then I'm quite confident that everything will be fine. There's nothing to worry about.

    I was very interested to read his answers to both your posts.
    I thought they were very good questions.

    But it looks like your posts got ignored.
    Or, maybe if he answered them he would expose himself too much.
    For unless he is hidden deep in some remote area , self supporting, and never goes into any town or city. He is just as much at risk as the rest of us.

    I personally believe that there is only ONE "Hiding Place" ...and it is what David found in Psalm 91.... "The Secret Place Of The Most High. "

    Nowhere on the planet is "safe".

    Hi Butterfly,
    Historically plagues have been relegated to isolated pockets typically where outhouses and water wells were in close proximity. This travesty was well recorded and remembered. But the scale today is much larger due to a much larger population, and is only in the onset. I would anticipate that things will progress, -- but equally, "plagues" are not always "sanitary" related.

    Consider the "plague" of nuclear war where high energy particles traveling through the air slice through the human body's cells, rupturing the cell membrane, and causing internal bleeding which oozes out of every orifice. People will think they're dying and seek death, but the body's natural healing ability will keep them from death.


    So we find ourselves in the era approximate to 1948 which is the time of the end (Dan. 12:4 & 9), and as both Scripture and History would support. And I expect that we are already 12 months into the 42 month tribulation (Rev. 13:5) -- not a "7-year-tribulation" which False teachers have vested upon the church because of their ignorance and False rendering regarding Daniel's 9th Chapter.

    Hi Bobby Jo,
    Thank you for your response- I have no idea if I agree or not at the moment as I am still reflecting and studying. I don't know about the 7year tribulation either, cannot say I have had much teaching on the end times. So do you agree that the last days started with Jesus ?
    Any chance of answering my other questions in post 6 , even if just to humour my curiosity !

    I was busy typing as you were posting, -- and you're correct in that "Nowhere on the planet is "safe". But there are areas which are EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, and areas which will be minimally dangerous. But the future is here, and those who ignore the warnings to FLEE the major cities will enjoy the FULL EXPERIENCE of the tribulation.

    So are you warning the people around you ?
    Also if you are talking about a nuclear war, I am pretty sure that even the remote areas will be impacted, you won't be able to run anywhere- although I am not convinced about that part of your prediction yet- but I am a novice , so I have nothing to back my uncertainty up yet !

    Rita,
    I just noticed that Willie T posted a video which I found quite good , on Revelation.

    It may interest you as you are studying it. :)

    o_O Doh, -- I'm sorry I didn't see your Post #6. So let me take a shot at your questions:

    • The medical experts acknowledge the current medical crises, and project future crises -- not me! I'm an engineer, not a doctor.
    • I live in a small community which is HIGH on Russia's nuclear targeting list.
    • I have cabin some 20 miles upwind of our community which I'm provisioning with a one-year supply of food, fuel, and necessities. It's still a work in progress, as we still have approximately a year and a half -- early 2021 -- until we can't "buy or sell" (per my best understanding of Prophecy); and then approximately 5 months until we have global thermonuclear war -- mid 2021 -- (per my best understanding); and then another approximately 6 months until government services are restored (per my best GUESS).
    • It's important to be able to help your neighbors, because we'll need all the support we can get, but sometimes neighbors are as much a risk as they are an assistance. Wisdom will be required.

    I don't place much confidence in "Shelter-In". It didn't work for Mr. Frank even though his gentile business partner was taking care of his needs in the "apartment" above their store. Everyone perished, including his beloved daughter "Anne", except Mr. Frank who survived to find her diary.

    Hope this helps,
    Bobby Jo
