My note: Man of the spirit is at war now, and the enemy seeks to destroy him This is just the beginning; God’s wrath is not like our anger, it simply is is his passion to set things right. The Almighty God knows the evil plans of his enemies who are enemies of his children, the Ethiopians. Saudi minister made hostile remarks last week about Ethiopians and their prestige project, the Renaissance Dam on the river Nile.
Israel is on a locust alert as swarms of the destructive bugs descend on neighboring Egypt ahead of the Passover holiday.
Israel’s Agriculture Ministry set up an emergency hotline Monday and is asking Israelis to be vigilant in reporting locust sightings to prevent an outbreak.
Locusts have a devastating effect on agriculture by quickly stripping crops.
Swarms of locusts have descended on Egypt, raising fears they could spread to Israel.
The locust alert comes ahead of the Passover festival, which recounts the biblical story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt. According to the Bible, a plague of locusts was one of 10 plagues God imposed on Egyptians for enslaving and abusing ancient Hebrews.
