These observations are consistent with end-time Bible prophecies that have long foretold that great death and destruction will precede the return of Jesus Christ at the end of the age. The prophet Ezekiel warned that 1/3 of the Israelite descendants would die by pestilence (plague) and famine (Ezekiel 5:12). Jesus Christ also warned of severe pestilence at the end of the age (Luke 21:11). Bible prophecies and statements of scientists appear to be coming together.
