Africanized Honeybees Invade New Orleans|

The state Agriculture Commissioner of New Orleans has announced
that of Africanized honeybees appear to have established themselves
in the city. A hive of the aggressive bees was discovered by
demolition workers in the city last January, but another swarm has
been captured five miles away from the first reported find. The
Agriculture Commissioner has warned citizens to be careful when
outdoors. The bees swarm when they feel threatened, and can kill.
Quote: ""Because Africanized bees
have been labeled 'killer bees' for years, there's an
idea around that they are bigger than European honeybees," Odom
said. "The truth is they're actually smaller but a lot
fiercer." They have the same venom as honeybees, but attack in
groups. Experts recommend that anyone confronted with Africanized bees
find cover quickly. Africanized bees are the result of an experiment
to increase honey production in Brazil. A swarm escaped a lab in 1957
and headed north. When they mated with native strains, the offspring
were as aggressive as the African parents.
My own country has been suffering from a plague of wasps. It seems
the unusually wet weather has suited them. We discovered a nest of
wasps in a cavity wall of our house a few months ago. When we called
the council to have the nest destroyed, they said it would be over a
week before they could remove it, because there was now a waiting
list due to so many people reporting nests in their properties. I
created a special mixture of honey, jam, sugar, orange juice and
water in a box, hoping to sweetly lure them to their deaths, but the
only thing I attracted were two big magpies. They ate the oranges,
and spilled my mixture all over the ground! My niece Amy prayed that
the wasps would go away, and when the lady came the next week to
remove the nest, they had vacated! Only a few stragglers were sitting
on the wall.
I didn't know that Africanized bees were a result of an
experiment to increase honey production. That is extremely interesting.
The Bible states that during the tribulation period, mankind will be
plagued by a swarm of locust that have human and scorpion characteristics.
Swarms of locust can strip crops bare, but for some reason these
creatures will not touch any plant. Instead hey will torment those
who have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
Whether these are genetically engineered locusts, or whether they are
a demonic spirit, I don't know for sure. These creatures come out
of the bottomless pit, and seem to have special command from God not
harm the earth, or afflict the believer. They torment only unbelievers,
which may indicate that they know how to recognize which souls belong
to God. But then again if we look for examples of judgement in the Old
Testament, we will see that the Lord used living creatures to judge
the wicked, while not permitting them to afflict His own people...
And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto
them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And
it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the
earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men
which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was
given that they should not kill them, but that they should be
tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a
scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek
death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall
flee from them.
And Moses stretched
forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east
wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was
morning, the east wind brought the locusts. And the locusts went up
over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt:
very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as
they, neither after them shall be such. For they covered the face of
the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every
herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had
left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the
herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.
The plagues of Revelation do seem to parallel some of the 10
judgements upon Egypt...
Water turned to blood - Exodus
7:17 - Revelation 16:4
Boils - Exodus 9:10 - Revelation 16:2
Hail mingled with fire - Exodus 9:23 - Revelation 8:7
Exodus 10:4 - Revelation 9:3
Darkness - Exodus 10:21 -
With news that Britain has given the green light for scientists to
hybrids, along with news that the United States is seriously
considering using animals as
remotely controlled robots, nothing surprises me any more.
Although the book of Revelation is largely symbolic, and John was
describing things that he could not explain in every day terms, I
believe mankind has the technology to fulfill these Scriptures.
