75 percent decline of flying insect a sign of end times prophecy?
An alarming decline in insect population is trending. Published in the Journal Plos One, dozens of amateur entomologists across Germany who began using strictly standardized ways of collecting insects in 1989. Special tents called malaise traps were used to capture more than 1,500 samples of all flying insects at 63 different nature reserves. There is a pattern in the decline with other studies. For example, populations of European grassland butterflies have declined by 50% between 1990 and 2011.
The research shows that more than 75 percent decline over 27 years in total flying insect biomass in protected areas, comparing samples from 1989. The findings were released in 2017 and it is a cause of alarm for everyone because our food cycle is dependent on insects. The decline of insects is certain to have adverse effects on the ecosystem.
“Insects make up about two-thirds of all life on Earth [but] there has been some kind of horrific decline,” said Prof Dave Goulson of Sussex University, UK, and part of the team behind the new study. “If we lose the insects then everything is going to collapse,” he added.
A serious food cycle problem in the future
Two separate studies highlight a dramatic trend in Germany: the number of flying insects has declined by 76 percent over the past 27 years. There are 15 percent fewer birds than just twelve years ago.
If this continues, the food cycle will suffer and generation Z will be the first to experience the effects in the food cycle.

A coming tribulation?
The Bible predicts a coming tribulation, just before the return of Jesus. “There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.” (Luke 21:11)
Whether you believe in the Bible or not, scientists have observed significant ecological phenomena leading to greater catastrophes. We cannot preclude the coming tribulation. God will judge evil. The Oracle of the Bible supports history and science and as Christians, we know this is inevitable.
Prepare your children
The only way we can all prepare for it is by coming right with God. If you yourself doubt God, He comes to you with full loving arms through His son Jesus. Believe and you shall be saved. (Acts 16:31)
There is an enemy, and he is bent on introducing heresy in the form of “tolerance.” The enemy Satan uses music, social media, and all hedonistic pursuit, that your children can see in plain sight.
