THIS WORLD IS ROTTING AWAY! THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS COMING AGAIN
We live in the 21st century age of knowledge and Age of "enlightenment". As we all know, knowledge has drastically increased from the late 20th century. The scriptures predicted that in the time of the end, men will run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase. In the book of Daniel 12:4, the Bible states: "4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." In Matthew 24, Jesus spoke saying: (KJV) 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
My friends, it is no more a question whether or not Jesus is coming. It is a matter of when. The world is changing, and its time is running short. Soon the world will have to answer to its maker. These signs of the times reveal the eminent return of the LORD our God! GET READY! Because the earth is giving way for his soon return!
There is a new sexually transmitted superbug that experts say may be more deadly that AIDS.
According to a CNBC report, an antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea is more aggressive than the HIV virus, which means the potential to infect the public will be greater.
Like most STDs, gonorrhea is usually transmitted through unprotected sexual contact and if left untreated, can cause severe medical complications, such as infertility in women, debilitating pain, sterility in men and life threatening heart infections.
Alan Christianson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine, thinks this new strain has the power to rack up more fatalities than AIDS. To date, more than the 30 million people have already died worldwide from AIDS-related complications.
“Getting gonorrhea from this strain might put someone into septic shock and death in a matter of days,” said Christianson. “This is very dangerous.”
William Smith, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors, echoed that sentiment. “It’s an emergency situation. As time moves on, it’s getting more hazardous,” said Smith.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, though no cases of the superbug officially called H041 were found in the US, steps must be taken to deal with the potential risks.
Gonorrhea can go undetected in some affected by the disease, showing no outward symptoms in about half of women and in 5 percent of men, which adds another level of difficulty in getting ahead of it.
This strain of STD which is resistant to antibiotic, reportedly kills half of those exposed and infects one in 20 hospital patients—which raises the threat of an outbreak to emergency levels.
Then there is the high cost of combating sexually transmitted diseases in general. The CDC’s tally to treat 20 million cases annually is approximately $16 billion. Of that 20 million STD cases, a reported 800,000 between the ages of 15 to 24, are infected with gonorrhea.
Even more alarming, some doctors believe the STD war is too costly to win.

Scientists have reconstructed the genetic code of a strain of bacteria that caused one of the most deadly pandemics in history nearly 1,500 years ago.
They did it by finding the skeletons of people killed by the plague and extracting DNA from traces of blood inside their teeth.
This plague struck in the year 541, under the reign of the Roman emperor Justinian, so it's usually called the . The emperor actually got sick himself but recovered. He was one of the lucky ones.
"Some of the estimates are that up to 50 million people died," says evolutionary biologist at Northern Arizona University. "It's thought that the Justinian plague actually led partially to the downfall of the Roman Empire."
The swept through Europe, northern Africa and parts of Asia. Historians say that when it arrived in Constantinople, thousands of bodies piled up in mass graves. People started wearing name tags so they could be identified if they suddenly collapsed.
Given the descriptions, scientists suspected that it was caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis — the same kind of microbe that later caused Europe's in the 14th century.
The bacteria get spread by fleas. After someone gets infected from a flea bite, the microbes travel to the nearest lymph node and start multiplying. "And so you get this mass swelling in that lymph node, which is known as a buboe," says Wagner. "That's where the term bubonic plague comes from."
The Justinian plague has been hard to study scientifically. But recently, archaeologists stumbled upon a clue outside Munich.
Housing developers were digging up farmland when they uncovered a burial site with graves that dated as far back as the Justinian plague.
"They found some [graves] that had multiple individuals buried together, which is oftentimes indicative of an infectious disease," Wagner says. "And so in this particular case, we examined material from two different victims. One of those victims was buried together with another adult and a child, so it's presumed that they all may have died of the plague at the same time."
Skeletons were all that was left of the pair. But inside their teeth was dental pulp that still contained traces of blood — and the blood contained the DNA of plague bacteria.

They think the strain of bacteria that caused the Justinian plague jumped from rodents into humans and then died out, the team Tuesday in the journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases. The later emergence of Black Death seems to have been caused by a separate event.
The DNA also suggests that, like Black Death, the original source of the plague was in China, says microbiologist , another member of the research team at Northern Arizona University.
"So the ecological reservoir for plague, the historical reservoir, is in China," Keim says. "And it's this emergence, this pattern over and over again, with people moving commodities, rats and fleas around the world that we're able to document."
Overall, this ancient strain is not that different from modern ones that still circulate in places like Arizona, says Keim.
"The biology of the pathogen no doubt could cause another pandemic if it weren't for the changes in human culture and medicine," Keim says.
These days, though, antibiotics can quickly stop plague outbreaks in their tracks.

BREAKING NEWS! 1 STEP CLOSER TO SUNDAY LAW!! 2014 UPDATE!
The European Sunday Alliance calls on all it’s Members and Supporters to support the Campaign “Pledge for a work-free Sunday and decent work ahead of the European elections 2014” A work-free Sunday and decent working hours are of paramount importance for citizens and workers throughout Europe and are not necessarily in conflict with economic competitiveness. Especially in the present time of socio-economic crisis, the adoption of legislation extending working hours to late evenings, nights, bank holidays and Sundays has direct consequences for the working conditions of employees and for small and medium sized enterprises. Competitiveness needs innovation, innovation needs creativity and creativity needs recreation!
CONFRERENCE on Work-free Sundays and Decent Work The objective of this conference is to highlight the paramount importance a work-free Sunday and decent working hours for citizens throughout Europe and is not necessarily to be set against economic competitiveness. All people in the European Union should be entitled to benefit from work-free Sundays and decent working hours
Confesercenti and Federstrade Roma e Provincia with the support of the Italian Bishops’ Conference have launched the Campaign “LIBERA LA DOMENICA”. They are supported by the members of the European Sunday Alliance Filcams-Cgil, Fisascat-Cisl, UILTuCS and by the Archbishop of Campobasso-Bojano, Mgr. Bregantini, as well as by many civil society organisations. Of particular interest is the fact that the campaign is supported by four Italian regions, namely: Piemont, Veneto, Emilia Romagna and Toscana! The objective of the Campaign “LIBERA LA DOMENICA” is to collect signatures for a law changing the current extent of liberalization of shop opening hours. The European Sunday Alliance wishes every success for this campaign and calls on all its Italian members and supporters to support “LIBERA LA DOMENICA”!
