Contagion: The Fourth Horseman?


The new movie that did the best at box office in the USA this weekend was titled Contagion.  Here are some comments about it:

Producer’s synopsis: ‘Contagion’ follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.

Here some comments from the Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about related to the 2011 movie Contagion:

The movie tells the story of a novel virus that spreads across the globe rapidly, with scientists and the public following its every move. The idea of a contagion such as this is very real…the plot of a new, deadly virus spreading quickly is quite plausible. In fact, CDC and public health partners identify, on average, one new or emerging infectious disease each year. The movie is a reminder that public health at local, state, national, and global levels must be supported to quickly detect, investigate, and respond to outbreaks and keep Americans safe from health, safety, and security threats arising in this country or anywhere in the world.

The film underscores that we are all connected by the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink… Contagion shows that fear is also contagious. (Frieden T. CDC Director on ‘Contagion’: Deadly Viruses Could Spread Fast. The Atlantic, September 10, 2011. viewed 09/10/11)

Humankind is at risk. And modern travel and other practices are placing humanity at even greater risk, as are genetically-modified foods (cf. Pestilence Issues and Genetically-Modified Corn).

Of course, although the CDC director did not mention scripture, pestilences are prophesied in the Bible. Jesus warned that “pestilences” would be part of the “beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:7-8). In the Book of Revelation, death and disease pestilences are predicted with the ride of the fourth horseman:

7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. (Revelation 6:7-8) 6:8).

LCG Evangelist Richard Ames wrote several years ago:

The fourth seal shows a rider on a pale horse, with the power over one-fourth of the earth to kill major portions of earth’s population. (Ames R. What Is The Day of The Lord? Tomorrow’s World magazine, March-April 2007)

The seven seals reveal prophetic events that lie just ahead of us… In Revelation 6, we read the description of six of those seals. The first four seals are known as the four horsemen of the Apocalypse… In Matthew 24, Jesus…tells us: “…All these are the beginning of sorrows…”… in Matthew, Jesus confirmed the meaning of these seals when He spoke of:

• Deceptive religion (Matthew 24:4)—the first seal, or the first of the four horsemen [of the Apocalypse, or Revelation];
• Wars (Matthew 24:6–7)—the second seal, or the second of the four horsemen;
• Famines (Matthew 24:7)—the third seal, or the third of the four horsemen;
• Pestilences (Matthew 24:7)—the fourth seal, or the fourth of the four horsemen… (Ames, R. The Seven Seals of Revelation. Tomorrow’s World magazine, March-April 2003)

The ride of the pale horseman of death will result in deaths from war, famine, and pestilence.

Tougher times are coming. And for some parts of the world these tougher time may be here now. People who can prepare, should. Both spiritually and physically.

The “contagion” of pestilence will bring much more than fear, the fourth horseman will bring massive amounts of actual deaths.

As Jesus said:

37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:37)
