There is a mystery disease in 6 provinces in China: – HIV/AIDS are ruled out.  One thing about our planet is that new illnesses continually show up.  This illness is definitely not yet of apocalyptic dimensions. Since the apocalypse described in The Book of Revelation is not yet, apparently, in full swing, it is out of line to announce this as such a sign.  Plagues come late in the descriptions of St. John. Men have tried throughout recorded Christian history to discern signs of The End Times.

So far, none have successfully pronounced the beginnings of the End Times. We are cautioned to be aware of events around us as we live out our faith. The Biblical  emphasis is that we we live out what God has placed before us, using such tools, skills, and ministries He has given us. Christians now have had 20 centuries practice in this way of living. Plenty of trials occured during this time, yet none were signs of The End Times.

By the way, this is not the only mystery illness to be found on earth today.  It is, however, the most publicized such illness.

    …guangdong has 45 species of monkeys, if you read vargas llosa’s
    Pantaleon y las Visitadoras, the plot revolves around a small detachment
    of national troop who are living deep in the jungle and are cohabitating
    with the species behind them(so evolution would have it), once the rumor reaches the Capitol, a rescue operation is put into effect to rescue the soldiers
    with pachachas/visitadoras of their own species.
