The number of pregnant women with pre-existing diabetes has more than doubled in seven years...These are results of a recent survey done by researchers at Kaiser Permanente, a California-based health care provider. Results of the study were published online in the journal, Diabetes Care, a publication of American Diabetes Association which funded the research.
The survey, done in order to assess health risks to newborns, was not aimed at answering the question as to why the number of pregnant women with pre-existing diabetes has more than doubled in seven years. According to the Associated Press, the rise of diabetes among women of childbearing age mirrors the prevalence of the disease in the general population.
There is little doubt that diseases of all kinds are becoming more prevalent among the general population.
In the Book of Revelation, chapter six, we see an epidemic of death coming upon the inhabitants of this planet. Do we ever wonder why, that in this age of increased knowledge and longer life-spans due to modern medical technology, more people are disease ridden than ever before? And not just in third world countries either!
Could it be that mankind with all his intelligence and the man-made wonders and resources at his disposal, is not able to prevent the prophecy of the The Revelation from being fulfilled?
The creator of all things cares about the health of his creation and has made provision for it. He sent his son to this earth not only to save our souls but to make provision for the healing of our bodies as well. The Bible contains too many references to our physical health for anyone to deny this is so. The scriptures say, "I am the God who healeth thee."
God has not changed.
