Cutaneous leishmaniasis, which is similar to the Biblical plagues of Egypt, are ravaging the Middle East. This disease has affected hundreds of thousands and is spread by a sand fly bite. Is this is a sign of God’s judgment? Or is this a warning of things to come? Cutaneous leishmaniasis bares a daring resemblance to the first vial of the Seven Vials of Revelation.

A strange disease is popping up all throughout the Middle East with literally hundreds of thousands of individuals affected. It’s called, Cutaneous leishmaniasis, and it looks just like a plague from the apocalypse. The reality is, however, that Syria the home of the epidemic, is in a state of apocalypse.
What was once known as the “Aleppo evil” throughout Syria, is ravaging through the desert via sand flies. So small yet the bite of the infected sand fly passes the disease into the blood stream, and according to the WHO this is disease, Cutaneous leishmaniasis, in one of seventeen that are “neglected.”
The ravaging conflict is to blame for the rise in this disease because of the refugee camps and failing health care. Peter Hotez, states “We’re seeing lots of diseases, including leishmaniasis in these conflict zones and we need to ring-fence them or risk another situation like Ebola out of the conflict zones in West Africa in 2014.” Peter is dean of the US National School of Tropical Medicine, US Science Envoy to the Middle East, and lead author of the PLOS research who told the Digital Journal.
This disease is rather similar to that of an Egyptian plague during biblical times, as well as it is rather akin to the first vial of the seven vials of Revelation.
Revelation 16:2 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
2 [a]And the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth: and there fell a noisome and a grievous sore upon the men which had the [b]mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
Revelation 16:2 The history of the first Angel, whose plague upon the earth, is described almost in the same words with that sixth plague of the Egyptians, Exod. 9:9. But it doth signify a spiritual ulcer, and that torture or butchery of conscience seared with an hot iron, which accuseth the ungodly within and both by truth of the word (the light whereof God hath now so long showed forth) and by bitterness stirreth up and forceth out the sword of God’s wrath.
The real question is however is this a sign of the first vial of judgment coming upon the World? Cutaneous leishmaniasis is not just affecting Syria. Due to the refugee camps in other countries, many are reporting that the cases are popping up everywhere.
In Lebanon, cases rose to 1,033 in 2013 from six in the previous 12 years. Hundreds of cases have also been reported in Turkey and Jordan. According to scientists, eastern Libya has also reported increasing numbers of leishmaniasis. In Yemen, an estimated 10,000 new cases are reported every year. With Yeminis migrating to Saudi Arabia, concerns have been raised the disease may spread further.
Dr Waleed Al-Salem, of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, told MailOnline: “It’s a very bad situation. The disease has spread dramatically in Syria, but also into countries like Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey and even into southern Europe with refugees coming in.
“There are thousands of cases in the region but it is still underestimated because no one can count the exact number of people affected.
“When people are bitten by sand flies – which are tiny and smaller than a mosquito – it can take anything between two to six months to have the infection.
“Someone might have picked it up in Syria but then they may have fled into Lebanon or Turkey, or even into Europe as they seek refuge.
“Prior to the outbreak of war there was good control of diseases, parasites and sand flies but when the conflict started no one cared, conditions worsened and the health system broke down, which has created an ideal environment for disease outbreaks.”
The end times are upon everyone, and diseases of unimaginable horror will plague the whole world. However, those who are saved, have repented, and live the Word of God will carry a hedge of protection about them through the end times.
Matthew 24:13 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
13 [a]But he that endureth to the end, he shall be saved.
The world is currently being torn apart by ravaging diseases which are spreading all throughout the world via small insects. In South America and North America cases of the Zika Virus are causing depopulation and deformation in children. The elite is actively grooming the world for their new world order, and it is beyond time to prepare for it.
