Grand Mosque of Mecca Plagued by Swarm of Locusts

As we continue to watch the worldwide convergence of events which correlate with Bible prophecy, occasionally a news story comes out with such apocalyptic overtones – it can prompt even the unbeliever to take notice.

The holiest site in Saudi Arabia  – the Grand Mosque of Mecca – has been plagued by swarms of locusts and black grasshoppers.

I’m very glad that this story came out in an Israeli news source, the Times of Israel.

Mecca’s Grand Mosque Plagued by Swarm of Locusts

Authorities dispatch cleaning crews to eradicate insects for the ‘safety and comfort of guests of God’s house’

A massive swarm of locusts plagued Mecca, Saudi Arabia, earlier this week, prompting authorities at Islam’s holiest site to launch a cleaning operation to remove them.

Videos posted to social media showed the insects swarming around cleaners and worshipers in the city’s Grand Mosque, where millions of Muslim pilgrims congregate every year.

“Specialized teams have been directed to work in the fight to eliminate these insects,” authorities in Mecca said, according to the Al-Araby Al-Jadeed news site.

“We have harnessed all efforts available to speed up the eradication of the insects in the interest of the safety and comfort of guests of God’s house,” the authorities said.

According to CNN, officials identified the locusts as migratory “black grasshoppers” and said that 22 teams consisting of 138 people were dispatched to deal with the infestation.   source

On a side note, please notice that CNN felt that this story was “news worthy” but most times when rockets are being launched at Israeli towns from Gaza, we don’t hear anything about that from CNN.

How Can I Be Saved?

Shalom b’Yeshua

MARANATHA!

    Is this big enough to be a fulfillment of anything end time? Locusts used to swarm where I live every few years but no big deal.
    Those people walking around Mecca remind me of locusts.

    Thank you Geri! I have a picture on my FB timeline of this, but wasn’t sure if it was part of the endtimes happenings as mentioned in Revelation in the Bible… Hope all is well with you and the family… God Bless you!
