FOUNDING EDITOR’S NOTE: Locusts in Egypt and even into Israel brings to mind the plague of the locusts in Egypt prior to EXODUS and also prior to the first Passover. Now, this plague in Egypt is also just prior to Israel’s Passover. Jesus said there would be “signs in the Heavens and Earth” right up until the end of the age. The reader may want to follow this story to see if this sign reveals any insight. Note that even the secular news media is making a connection with the Biblical accounts of the plague of locust and the first Passover. –Steve Shultz, BCN.

A swarm reportedly “appeared in the afternoon on March 2nd,” said the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN.
The presence of the swarms of locusts so close to the time of the Passover Feast in Israel is giving fuel to apocalyptic fears, as the crop-killing bugs were the 8th of the ten plagues—in Exodus 10 of the Bible—that came against ancient Egypt at the hand of God for Pharaoh’s refusal to let the enslaved Hebrews go free.

However, the Egyptian Agriculture Ministry noted that the pests always pass through the country as part of their “normal migration” to Saudi Arabia.
Israel is also on alert regarding the locusts, and has set up an emergency hotline for reporting sightings of the insects.
Passover, this year, will begin on the evening of March 25th.
