Numbers 19:16 Also, anyone who in the open field touches one who has been slain with a sword or who has died naturally, or a human bone or a grave, shall be unclean for seven days.
This is not some little hocus pocus verse from primitive man trying to understand a deity. God has a point and reason for what He says. Do not engage with dead bodies.
Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. -Jesus

October 31, 2017: Madagascar-Bubonic Plague or the Black Death is making a comeback. To date, approximately 1,300 people have been infected. 120 people have died.
World Health Organization: describes plague symptoms as “flu like”, with one to seven days between incubation and the symptoms emerging. Sufferers are likely to have painful lymph nodes, chills, fever, headaches, weakness and fatigue. In bubonic sufferers, these inflamed lymph nodes may end up turning into pus-filled open sores. Bubonic plague is fatal in 30-60 per cent of cases, while the pneumonic kind is always fatal, if left untreated.
The Black Death obliterated roughly 1/3 of the European population during the 13th and 14th centuries.
The World Health Organization has issued a warning to nine African countries. They include: Kenya, Ethiopia, South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Reunion, Mauritius, Seychelles, and Comoros.
Madagascans have been warned. Stop the ancient ritual of Famadihana. This practice includes digging up the dead, dancing with the deceased, and reburying after the dance is complete.
The following quote is from Madagascar health chief Willy Randriamarotia. “If a person dies of pneumonic plague and is then interred in a tomb that is subsequently opened for a Famadihana, the bacteria can still be transmitted and contaminate whoever handles the body.”
Health considerations are clashing with tradition. A local resident indicated, “I have participated in as least 15 Famadihana ceremonies and I’ve never caught the plague.”
Officials fear things will get worse before they get better. The concern is one infected person who leaves the island.
Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.
Just to be clear. The events in Madagascar do not point to Revelation. We are not there. But when we get there, one quarter (1/4) of the earth will be affected. 1/4 of 7,000,000,000 = 1.75 billion! This is going to make the news.
