Yersinia pestis (the bacteria that causes bubonic plague)

You wanna hear something that’ll keep you up at night? There’s an antibiotic resistance strain in Madagascar ☹️

It's treatable but still 10% fatal. God help if bubonic plague every becomes more transmissible

Not even that rare, it's around as Sylvatic plague in rodents all the time. Regularly wipes out prairie dog colonies and led to the decline of the black footed ferret.

      Jesus’ first victory was over his most powerful foes—Satan and the demons. Expelling them from heaven, he hurled them down to the earth.
      Knowing that their time is short, these wicked spirits have vented their violent anger on mankind, causing great woe.
      This woe is symbolized in Revelation by the ride of three more horsemen. (Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest!
