A swarm of locusts near Giza, in Egypt.

Passover is not due for another three weeks, give or take a day, but in Egypt they’re already reporting a plague of locusts that’s hitting the agricultural farms in Giza. some 15 miles southwest of Cairo—also known for its cluster of pyramids. Can’t get much more Exodus-related than that.

According to Alwatan News, Egyptian minister of agriculture Dr. Salah Abd Al Mamon has remarked that “against our predictions, a swarm of locusts has reached the region south of Cairo. The swarm is comprised of 30 million individuals, and it is causing great damage to agriculture in the Giza area.”

Dr. Al Mamon added that “Egyptian armed forces and the border guards are attempting to fight the swarm with the means at their disposal.” He requested local residents not to launch their own attempts to stop the swarm, so as not to cause additional damage unintentionally.

“I ask the families living in the locust-plagued areas not to burn tires. This does not chase away the locusts, but only causes damage and could ignite large scale fires that would cost in lives.”

Dr. Al Mamon noted that, based on meteorological data, strong winds that are expect to start soon which will take the locusts with them towards the Red Sea and Saudi Arabia.

Rajab Bachri, head of the “War on the Locusts” department in the ministry of agriculture, said that crop dusting aircraft will soon be sent to attack the swarm.

According to Bachri, swarms of locusts pass through Egypt at this time of the year, but this one is exceptionally large.

According to Encyclopedia Smithsonian, locusts are used by various African groups consistently as food. The locust individuals are gathered in the early day before they are active, then boiled before being cleaned and salted. Even the legs are used by grinding and combining them with peanut butter and salt.

    A couple of weeks before Passover ! But wait ! a group opposed to Egypt Muslim Brotherhood has taken over that dam built by Russia, producing electricity to upper Egypt. Meaning on top of Sharia, another Darkness plague could be coming. Stay tuned for the ‘Sands over the Sphynx eyes’.

  2. IDK why people are saying it is a sign on the end of times, the article itself states "According to Bachri, swarms of locusts pass through Egypt at this time of the year, but this one is exceptionally large."

    So that means it is NORMAL, just a larger swarm which means they had MORE larvae. Just means they mated more and had more babies, I broke that down for some folks that don't seem to get it.

    You will never know when the end will come, all of these people trying to "read clues" are just fools, the Bible says it will come like a thief in the night. So stop trying to predict it. Enjoy your life, your family and live in the moment. Stop worrying about something you have no control over and cannot predict!

  3. However, God did warn the prophets before bad things happened. Told Noah to build Ark way before the flood, told Abraham before Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed, and we have about 15-1/2 years before the end.

  4. I have to wonder if there isn't a natural cycle for this maybe every couple hundred yrs or so.As for the jesus freaks I have a hard time with the theory some jewish zombie who is his own dad died for whatever reason and will reutrn.

  5. NO! The land belong to the children of Hebrew over 5000 years…It was the devil that gave birth to Islam 1,400 years ago after the crucifixion of Jesus, the Son of God…The devil went by the name Muhammad, Allah has many names in hell!

  6. Nothing like dividing people of the book there Preacher Johnson….. Didn't know there was more than "1" God. Perhaps you should work through your dogmatic perspective and show compassion rather than distain. Who's God was in control of all the horrible nautural catastropies that has hit the US over the last 6 years straight….. Just asking for your clarity on the situation… Can't blame that on the US being a Muslim State. Perhaps you can point your finger at gay Marriage or something else to push your agenda.

    May Peace Be On To You.

  8. Hannah Senesh – Really? Who scared you with those lies? You would not know the difference in a verse from the Qu'ran or the Bible if I placed it in front of you.

  9. Did the Locust swarm Mexico a few years back because of the "illegals"? I thought land (the earth) was made for mankind without man made barriers? Just a though. No – a fact….

  10. My peoples, hear the Word of The Living God! All peoples of the earth, hear the voice of your maker: You have all entered in! The Day is here, and you have entered in! THE DAY OF THE LORD!

    Therefore, bow down heavily…

    Fall on your faces, and wail loudly! CRY OUT!

    Die to yourselves, and grab hold of The Holy One of Israel,
    And pray that you are counted worthy to escape!

    I lie not! YOU HAVE ENTERED IN!

    God is speaking to THIS Generation.

  11. Are you suggesting this is a marginally more severe than usual movement of a common transitory pest well known in the area? Are you daring to suggest that this is a routine event barely worthy of attention?! Where is your FAITH?!
