Noncommunicable diseases are not relenting

20 Jun 2020 at 21:03hrs | Views
The world is under siege from diseases and illnesses that are tormenting humanity left, right and centre.

Hypertension and diabetes are leading the pack in the onslaught on God's people. Despite availability of modern medicine these two noncommunicable diseases are not relenting, even youths are being diagnosed with the condition.

Of late, most middle aged people are reportedly suffering from painful legs, experiencing excruciating pain especially at night. The advance in modern medicine and  technology would have meant a healthy world population but its not the case.

Many people are pointing at 'today's foods' accusingly, how true can this be? If there is a grain of truth along this school of thought could there be a 'culinary conspiracy' and complicity among some food manufacturers and global pharmaceutical companies?

I refuse to think and believe that God is 'killing people'. A person with a chronic disease and on life long medication is also a life long customer, you see the lucrative catch? HIV/AIDS and now Coronavirus, the end justifying the means.

Causing the conditions in order to show kindness later, "Hey here is the vaccine". And, as a hind thought, where are those blink, blink flamboyant 'prophets' who boasted - amazing healing powers.

They too are under lockdown OMG! And, that great traditional healer, a Mr fix it all, him too in hiding? We need God more than He needs us. The time to find Salvation is now.

Wash hands with soap, the plague is still around.
