Default Bedbug epidemic part of God's judgement?

I watched a show about the bedbug problem today, and read an article by someone who dealt with it. Not funny!

We just had one of our libraries shut down due to a Bed Bug infestation yesterday here in Fort Myers, FL. So, the bugs are spreading.
Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. -Isaiah 55:6-7

Default Detroit Too!

My sister called me last week and told me tha same thing is happening all over the city & suburbs of Detroit. My heart grieves for that city but my first thoughts were the spirit of Islam/Antichrist is where this curse comes from.

This city has been seduced by this spirit for over 40 years and it is sad to go through my old neighborhood and see islamic writing on the storefronts & woman clothed in black from head to toe. They have literally taken over many of the major parts of this city & suburbs.

The land is cursed and now we see the results of it through the loss of jobs, the auto industry taken over by the govrt, empty houses filled with drugs, crime, gambeling/casinos and now bedbugs!

Eww! These are so nasty. They are sort of like a tick, except it is said they don't spread diseases. My heart goes out to anyone who has to deal with them.
I'm reminded of when I was a little girl and my mother would come to tuck us in at night. We would say our prayers and she would kiss us goodnight, then she would make us laugh by saying, "Goodnight, now don't let the bedbugs bite." We would giggle and go to sleep.

It was a few years later that I found out they were real through a little friend of mine in the third grade who had come to school with bites that were mostly on her arms, but I imagine there were bites in other places that did not show. Her family were poor and she had alot of siblings. My family moved away not too long after and I have wondered what ever happened to her and her family, she was a sweet girl.

I pray that our Lord Jesus gathers us under his wings and protects us from this pestilence.
In Jesus name,

When I heard about the bedbugs, I remembered the lice plague in Egypt with Pharaoh in Exodus. it says in Rev that if anyone adds to the Word, the plagues are added to them....? What do you think? But no matter what, I don't want any bad thing to come upon anyone. Jesus took on death so that we can all repent and escape His wrath to receive His mercy and grace. When He fed the multitude, He looked on them with compassion because they were scattered sheep without a sherpard. I pray for laborers for the harvest. I'm so humbled that Yeshua could adopt a sinner like me. My sins and trials were too much to bear (& they keep me from being prideful as well. It's all because of the blood of Jesus lest I should boast.) how will they know if they don't hear? If no one goes? How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of Christ!
Galations 1:10 For do I now serve man, or God? or do I seek to please man? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth!
