Although the plague is generally connected to the Middle Ages, Mr Gaylor is the 17th person sickened by the disease in Oregon since 1934. It causes an infection that kills cells, causing gangrene which often results in amputation, if not death.
The Great Plague of Seville (1647), the Great Plague of London (1665–1666), the Great Plague of Vienna (1679), and the Great Plague of Marseilles(1720), were the last major outbreaks of the bubonic plague in Europe.
The plague resurfaced in the mid-19th century; like the Black Death, the Third Pandemic began in Central Asia. The disease killed millions in China and India — mostly a British possession at the time — and then spread worldwide. The outbreak continued into the early 20th century. In 1897, the city of Poona (now Pune) in India was severely affected by the outbreak.
In 1899, the island of Hawaii was also hit by the plague causing it to be brought over into the United States. The first evidence of the disease was found in Oahu’s Chinatown.It is located very close to the island’s piers and because rats could stow away in the cargo ships they were able to transfer here from China without being seen. As the rats made their way to the nearest city, people started to fall ill and on December 12, 1899 the first case was confirmed. The Board of Health then quickly thought of ways to prevent the disease from spreading even farther inland. Their solution was to burn any suspected buildings that might have been infected with the disease. On December 31, 1899 the board set the first fire. They had originally planned to burn only a few buildings and thought they could control the flames as each building was finished, but the fire got out of control, burning down neighboring buildings. The resulting fire caused many of Chinatown’s homes to be destroyed and an estimated 4,000 people were left homeless.
In 1994, a plague outbreak in five Indian states caused an estimated 700 infections (including 52 deaths) and triggered a large migration of Indians within India as they tried to avoid the plague.
In 1994 and 2010 cases were reported in Peru. In 2010 a case was reported in Oregon, United States,and a further case was reported in the state in 2012.
Matthew 24:4-8 (NKJV)
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.website. Available for preorder – The Supernatural Battle
