LISTEN NOW! WATCH! Greg, Pat, and John have an informational conversation about the details of the diseases that the world is presently witnessing as well as what has happened in the past. Nearly a hundred years ago, America was devastated from the effects of Influenza. In its first wave, Influenza was no more a threat than the flu. Because American soldiers were traveling to Europe in response to World War I, its spread intensified. Reportedly, as Influenza began, it was the young and the elderly that were affected. At the time, Influenza had a 10% death rate. The combination of deaths from World War I & II, The Vietnam War, and The Korean War totaled 637,479. The total deaths of those from Influenza were approximately 675,000. Presently, the Ebola virus is said to have a 90% death rate. In addition to this, there are multiple factors in today’s generation that highlight how the effects of Ebola could be much worse. The Bible details specific responses of God’s perspective of plagues and what the church can do. Also shared in this segment: Operation Blessing, Franklin Graham, John Paul Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, President Barack Obama, PBS, and repentance. WATCH FULL PROGRAM!
