‘New’ Locusts in Australia

Australia may be facing another, perhaps more menacing, locust problem:

Unusual locust swarm bugs NSW central west

Sydney Morning Herald – Nov 2, 2010

Authorities are alarmed by the unusual presence of a large swarm of spur-throated locusts threatening to destroy crops in the NSW central west.

The pests, which are larger and can consume more than the more common plague locust, are usually only found in Queensland and NSW’s far north…

The adult female spur-throated locusts can grow up to 6.5cm long compared to 4.2cm for an adult female plague locust, according to the federal Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry. http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-national/unusual-locust-swarm-bugs-nsw-central-west-20101102-17bdr.html

Spur-throated locusts swarm in NSW

ABC, Australia – Nov 2, 2010

Livestock Health and Pest Authority staff are consulting with the Australian Plague Locust Commission, to try and find a way to treat a large swarm of spur-throated locusts which have been sighted north of Nyngan.

The spur-throated locusts are much bigger than plague locusts and authorities say they will cause more damage to crops. http://www.abc.net.au/rural/regions/content/201011/3054919.htm?site=centralwest

Pestilences (like locusts) and famines are, according to Jesus, expected:

6 See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.  (Matthew 24:6-8)

We may be very near that time.  But the end (meaning the Great Tribulation) is not yet.

The Great Tribulation is coming, but not for a few years.  But many difficulties, including famines and pestilences (Matthew 24:7) are expected BEFORE the Great Tribulation begins (Matthew 24:21).  Australia, despite is relatively booming economy, will be affected by the difficulties ahead.
