Editors Note: Ladies and Gentlemen, this recent occurrence should remind us of the biblical account whenYahweh sent a plague of locusts to Egypt during Pharoah’s reign because he would not let His people Israel go. Let’s read:
‘Adonai said to Moshe (Moses), “Reach out your hand over the land of Egypt, so that locusts will invade the land and eat every plant that the hail has left.” Moshe reached out with his staff over the land of Egypt, and Adonai caused an east wind to blow on the land all day and all night; and in the morning the east wind brought the locusts.
The locusts went up over all the land of Egypt and settled throughout Egypt’s territory. It was an invasion more severe than there had ever been before or will ever be again.
They completely covered the ground, so that the ground looked black. They ate every plant growing from the ground and all the fruit of the trees left by the hail. Not one green thing remained, not a tree and not a plant in the field, in all the land of Egypt.’
Sh’mot (Exo) 10:12-15 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
At that time, Egypt was the only country that suffered a swarm of locusts which covered their land. Since then, sitings of locusts in extreme numbers have been spotty, happening in a single country or large geographical location.
However, Yahweh is getting ready to repeat the plague of locust that troubled Pharaoh of Egypt. Only this time, it will not be confined to an individual country or geographical region, but will cover the entire planet as recorded in Revelation 9: 1-6. Yahweh declares in Malachi 3:6 “For I am the Lord, I change not.” Please see below.
The pilgrimage hub of Saudi Arabia got hit with a plague of biblical proportions earlier this week when a massive swarm of locusts descended upon the Islamic holy site of Mecca.
In several videos posted online, locusts were seen crawling around Mecca’s grand mosque, creeping their way across the stone slabs, providing a small snapshot of what Pharaoh saw during the Passover thousands of years ago.
