In addition to the recent hurricanes and earthquakes, at least one of the plagues of Egypt has returned as swarms of locusts descended en masse on two separate parts of the globe in recent weeks.
“Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast: And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field” (Exodus 10:4-5).
A plague of locusts attacked South Eastern Trinidad last week. “People are scared and are panicking because of the amount of locusts. I won’t say this is the first time we have seen locusts, but it is the first time seeing it in such a magnitude,” Chairman of the Mayaro/Rio Claro Regional Corporation Glenn Ram was quoted in the Trinidad Express as saying.
Ram said that the damage to crops has been limited by spraying, but the bugs are an incredible annoyance to residents, “getting into clothing, vehicles and anywhere else they can occupy.”
The residents of Trinidad are experiencing a taste of the eighth plague the Egyptians suffered when God was punishing them for enslaving the Jews.
Trinidad was not the only location to be plagued by locusts recently. Huge swarms of locusts devastated farms throughout large areas of Southern Russia last month as well. Farmers were hard-pressed as the swarming insects devoured everything in sight. In one video, fisherman are seen struggling through clouds of locust, using nets to catch the bugs to use as bait.
It is important to emphasize that neither Russia nor Trinidad has Hebrew slaves and it would be an error to claim the appearance of the locusts was a sign of divine wrath. In a recent interview about the hurricanes that have struck America, Rabbi Yosef Dayan, a former member of the nascent Sanhedrin, told Breaking Israel News, “It is forbidden to attribute divine motivations to such disasters but an introspective process is clearly necessary.”
Locusts are not taxonomically different from grasshoppers. A plague occurs when species of short-horned grasshoppers enter a swarming phase in reaction to environmental conditions. The second half of the twentieth century has seen a dramatic decline in frequency, duration and intensity of locust outbreaks, making these recent attacks especially worthy of introspection. source
