Anti-Vaccine? …Troublers of the Nation

May 11, 2017


There has been a recent Measles outbreak in Minnesota, primarily linked to the Somali community who reject the use of vaccinations due to its links to autism in children. This is said to be the biggest Measles outbreak since 1990 where there were 460 confirmed. Currently, there are 47 confirmed cases in Hennepin County, two in Ramsey County and one in Crow Wing County. In 2015, there was also a Disneyland Outbreak of 51 cases attributed to the non-vaccinated population and in 2013, 16 cases linked to a Texas megachurch pastor who preached against vaccinations.


In a more recent report, The Department of Health report that this outbreak is reason for concern because of its spread and mainly because of the $200,000 plus that has been spent in the last 3 weeks to combat this disease. Despite the moral convictions of the individuals not accepting the vaccines, the vaccines have been given to those who have been hospitalized.


“MDH's Kris Ehresmann explained to the committee just how much work the agency is pouring into the outbreak. She said while 50 outbreaks have been confirmed, roughly 7,000 exposures have been investigated at three schools, 10 day cares and multiple health facilities. In just three weeks, MDH has spent more than $200,000 on the measles outbreak. ‘I just want to point out the very labor intensive nature of this work,’ Ehresmann said.” [1] 


Projected flu pandemics, lyme disease outbreaks and now measles outbreaks, one can only wonder what’s really going on? Not to mention the pending wars, outrage of nations, and public dissatisfaction and distrust in leaders of nations.


“Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment… He will favor and prosper some in order to further his own designs, and he will bring trouble upon others and lead men to believe that it is God who is afflicting them.” [2]


“ He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. “The earth mourneth and fadeth away,” “the haughty people ... do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.” Isaiah 24:4, 5.


“And then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils. The class that have provoked the displeasure of Heaven will charge all their troubles upon those whose obedience to God's commandments is a perpetual reproof to transgressors. It will be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday sabbath; that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced; and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity. Thus the accusation urged of old against the servant of God will be repeated and upon grounds equally well established: “And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.” 1 Kings 18:17, 18. As the wrath of the people shall be excited by false charges, they will pursue a course toward God's ambassadors very similar to that which apostate Israel pursued toward Elijah.” [3] 


The conclusion? "The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant." Isaiah 24:5
