BT Daily: Contagious Killer Flu Created!

[Steve Myers] Have you seen one of the latest
news items? A Dutch University lab has created a highly
contagious killer flu. It’s a form of the bird flu that was out a
few years ago. Now, what they’ve done is they’ve actually
mutated it so that it can become airborne. Now it’s easy to transfer between person to
person. Now it’s not out. It’s still contained in the lab. But the scientific world is going crazy over
this whole thing at the moment because they want to publish their results. [Darris McNeely] And the big issue is whether
or not to make this information freely out in the public, especially to share among scientists,
and this is creating a debate among the scientists because they don’t know if a terrorist posing
as a scientist or some scientist who may be friendly toward terrorists would take that
information and give it to a group who would then manufacture a way to spread that within
the population. This is a very scary possibility. You don’t see a lot of this information except
when something breaks out and it kind of ebbs and flows in the news, Steve. But it’s a very real possibility. [Steve Myers] The interesting thing is what
some of the scientists said about it. They said, this is a quote, “The fear is if
you create something this deadly and it goes into a global pandemic, the mortality and
cost to the world could be massive.” And that’s one of the more mild comments. This is the one that caught my attention in
an article I was reading about it. One of the scientists said, “The worst case
scenario here is worse than anything you could imagine.” Now that takes your breath away when you begin
to think about that. And you can’t help but think of some of the
prophecies that are mentioned in the Bible as we draw to the end of the age. [Darris McNeely] Jesus Christ did address
this very real possibility in Matthew chapter 24, the Olivet Prophecy when He was asked
about the signs that would precede His second coming. And in verse 7 He said, “For nation will rise
against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there will be famine, pestilences, and
earthquakes in various places. All of these are the beginning of sorrows.” So pestilence is definitely one of those items
mentioned, and it’s also one of those seals mentioned in Revelation chapter 6, one of
the so-called horsemen of the Apocalypse, and signs of that age of a problem that could
very well begin to ride across the global landscape almost overnight. [Steve Myers] And about riding, it reminds
me of the four horsemen in Revelation chapter 6. That fourth horse, the pale horse, is that
one that talks about pestilences. Now, we’re not saying that’s right where we
are in history, we’re not making that prediction, but the thing is we know that’s coming and
this is another precursor that’s pushing us that way, that’s showing us the times that
we live in. It is a dangerous time. [Darris McNeely] And when you read articles
like that, you understand just how real and palpable this problem is just under the surface
of our culture and our society almost waiting to erupt throughout the population causing
a great deal of suffering. We hope and pray that does not happen. Bible prophecy shows that it’s a very real
event that is going to happen, but when you read events like this, Steve, you understand
just how close we are in this world. It’s a very precarious situation. [Steve Myers] And it’s a reminder, not about
the doom and the gloom that is coming, no doubt, but what about us? We need to make sure we’re close to God. We need to make sure we have a relationship
with Him. We need to be growing in grace and knowledge
and putting on the mind of Christ. That’s what it reminds me of. [Darris McNeely] That’s what the real effect
of all of these prophecies should have in our lives to draw us closer to a sobering
reality, the times we live in and a deeper relationship with God. [Steve Myers] That’s BT Daily. We’ll see you next time.

  1. 1. Bird flu has only killed about 300 people ever.
    2. This airborne strain was developed to engineer a vaccine for a possible mutation in the H5N1 virus.
    3. The scientists have already redacted their published findings of specifics at government request.
    4. The Independent UK article you misquote sources an anonymous government official, who is only giving an opinion, not describing reality.

    Why do you omit these key facts in favor of scaremongering and invoking visions of the apocalypse?

  2. You will never know God accept you recieve His Son Jesus Christ as your personnel Savoir…St.John.3:16,17; Revelation.3:20 Behold I stand at the door and knock, look just give up your ways and allow Him to change you completely from the inside out…then and only then you will understand
