    The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. (Revelation 16:2 NIV)

    Do you guys think that the emerging monkeypox cases are related to this passage in scripture? If so, I'm doomed cuz I took the vax.

    Yeah, you're monkey-doomed. Someone threw a monkey wrench in your works. No more monkeying around for you. Monkey see, monkey doom.

    I guess we'll find out if monkeypox is the '1st bowl of wrath' ... if we see non-Christians getting it and, like the Hebrews under Pharaoh, Christians don't. :rolleyes:

    No, I don't, because the trumpets and bowls don't go out of order. We don't have the world of Revelation 13 yet.
    if anything prophetic from Revelation has happened recently, it's the first 2 seals and we might be looking at the 3rd soon (all economic indicators point to a catastrophe economically and everyone points to food shortages, perhaps worse than we've seen in modern history, in some places in the world like Lebanon and Africa it probably will be a day's wages to eat each day, if not just.... there won't be anything to eat).

    I believe the Monkeypox is however, something planned and deliberate, the timing is just before the WHO will vote on being given more authority internationally to declare, and manage health crisis's. The NTI (Nuclear Threat Initiative) group in collaboration with the Munich Security Conference in March 2021 to do a simulation of a Monkeypox outbreak using a genetically modified strain of monkeypox that spreads person to person that resulted in 3.2 billion infections and almost 300 million deaths.

    Yeah now we have a person to person spread variant of Monkeypox... just before a critical WHO vote.
    It stinks.

    However it's God that brings the loathsome sore on those who took the mark of the beast in Revelation 16. Not globalists.

    That was insightful. Thank you. Yes the WHO may soon be given sweeping power over national sovereignty. I know my PM of Canada is all on board for globalist agendas.

    Yeah we're setting up for that one world government/Mystery Babylon, which will bring the wrath of God, but we're not in the wrath of God.

    Monkey pox spreads like a regular disease. A biblical plague is one that afflicts suddenly to all who qualify.

    This isn't it.

    Well in a way it is spreading due to a qualification.
    So far it's spreading sexually among gay and bisexual man... "receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet"

    Meet in this context.. means it's fitting.

    As long as you gauge your Bible prophecy by the daily news, you will be for ever asking these questions.

    He'll do more than that. They may get their 1 world government for a season, but God will deliver us.
    and then our one world government comes in, dominion is taken from them and given to the saints of the most high, under our King of King and Lord of Lords!

    No, you are okay, and at least unlikely ever to have monkeypox.

    Monkey pox is not going to be the next pandemic. It is way too hard to transmit. Don’t worry about it. There are other things more worthy of worry if you must worry. One of them is multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria. That is a growing problem we were clued into fifty years ago as a possibility and it’s been steadily getting worse.

    Why do you think you are doomed for a vaccination?

    Monkeypox is much less dangerous than COVID. It sounds bizarre but its transmissibility rate or "R value" is not sufficient to produce a pandemic. Bird flu is hitting chicken farms hard, and if that mutates into a human transmissible form, we might have another bad health situation forming, but so far so good.

    Well normal monkeypox isn't spreadable human to human. So this strain has changed a bit to be human to human transmissable but last I knew it was transmitted by contact particularly sexual contact has been the main route of transmission but any bodily fluids could do it.
    The strain spreading is supposedly based on the strain that has a 1% mortality rate. There is a more virulent strain that has about a 10% mortality rate. That's the strain the NTI/Munich Security Conference used in their "war game" simulation, that's why it killed 270 million people by December 2023 in that scenario.

    I think it likely that if they "monkeyed around" with monkeypox in a lab they'd have made it transmissable human to human but based it on the less virulent strain to give a shocking, scary looking (cause let's be honest those pictures are terrifying) outbreak that could scare countries into voting for these international health regulations in the WHO starting tomorrow, that may have resisted prior. They're looking to manipulate rather than cause a massive death toll.

    I sure hope you are wrong about this bioweaponization of monkeypox, but it wouldn't exactly surprise me either. I heard one of the more credible stories about COVID-19 was that Chinese researchers were trying to either develop a bioweapon or were trying to develop vaccines against a future bioweapon and thus drove evolution of COVID to a more and more dangerous disease, then someone leaked it from the lab. I never did buy the "bat stew" theory. Did you hear Russia boasting about its latest ICBM, named "SATAN-2?" Putin is just crazy and desperate enough to fire off tactical nuke in Ukraine and start WW3, rather than concede defeat and resign as President. And apparently he's had 1,000 of his Staff fired over his paranoia (may be a legit one) that someone may try to poison him. I think he is the kind of leader who would rather end the world than admit defeat. Their video of nuking England and boasting about this 500 meter tsunami or using their SATAN-2 ICBM both were disturbing, and Putin and Lavrov both keep saying we aren't taking their threat of nuclear war seriously enough. Its always been just a matter of time, since Oppenheimer invented the atomic bomb, but especially since the hydrogen bomb, the ability to destroy all live 10 times over has been a code and button away. Sooner or later someone is going to hit that button. Monkeypox is a trivial threat (unless weaponized) compared to nuclear armageddeon. The US has some missile defense but it is designed to handle a North Korea attack. We can't defend against a Russian attack, and China is building ICBMs at an alarming rate too. And that doesn't even count their hypersonic missiles that we can't even shoot down one.

    Covid supposedly has some domains in its genome that are "signature" of genetic engineering, some really G rich zones, and also some domains that come from HIV-1.
    Most likely Covid was an attempt to study how a virus could jump from animal to human, that "gain of function" research and they can often do that by deliberately engineering a virus to do that, and it got out.
    China started to threaten nuking countries accusing it of such research so.. maybe a bit on the nose.
