The Washington Post: “For the first time, researchers have found a person in the United States carrying bacteria resistant to antibiotics of last resort, an alarming development that the top U.S. public health official says could signal “the end of the road” for antibiotics.
The antibiotic-resistant strain was found last month in the urine of a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman. Defense Department researchers determined that she carried a strain of E. coli resistant to the antibiotic colistin, according to a study published Thursday in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a publication of the American Society for Microbiology.
The authors wrote that the discovery “heralds the emergence of a truly pan-drug resistant bacteria.”
Opinion: A recent post in the International Business Times asked an important question: Why Aren’t Drug Companies Developing New Medicines To Stop Superbugs?
The simple answer is that antibiotic drugs have high costs of development and low returns since patients take them for a short period of time. Meds for cholesterol, hypertension, or mood enhancement are typically taken fort the life of the patient.
Here is the bad news: Super bugs bring disease and death line up perfectly with the Third Seal Judgment found in Revelation 6:7-8:
“When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 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.”
The good news is that those who have accepted Jesus Christ’s pardon for sin are not here for that:
Luke 21:36: “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Romans 5:9 “Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from (Greek: apo – out of) God’s wrath through him!”
1 Thessalonians 1:10 “And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from (out of) the coming wrath.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
1 Thessalonians 5:9 “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Revelation 3:10 “Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from (out of) the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.”
Revelation 4:1 “After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”
Rapture (out of HERE)
