Why Did God Make Mosquitos?
Prophecy - Signs
Thursday, July 16, 2015
J.L. Robb

As a zoology student in 1973, we spent a lot of time studying mosquitos, fleas and ticks. I never could see the purpose of these insects, other than as a food source for bats, wasps and fish. But let them eat cake.

I saw a sign last week displayed outside a small community church:

I wish Noah had swatted those two mosquitos.

From Merriam-Webster:

Mosquito: Any of a family (Culicidae) of dipteran flies with females that have a set of slender organs in the proboscis adapted to puncture the skin of animals and to suck their blood and that are in some cases vectors of serious diseases.

Yep, that’s my kind of animal; one that punctures me, sucks my blood and injects nasties into my system. The very best thing that comes from a mosquito bite is an annoyingly itchy wound. There are many worse things that could happen from a mosquito bite.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.   Revelation 6: 8 NIV

Plague (pestilence) is mentioned many times throughout the Bible and throughout history. The nefarious mosquito, with its ability to puncture skin and penetrate blood vessels has been the known vector of many diseases. It is my personal belief that mosquito-borne disease will increase as time advances.

Why did God make mosquitos?

To the evolutionist, God didn’t make mosquitos or anything else. The mosquito was just an accident caused by a mysterious, against-the-odds, strange sequence of events, events that apparently didn’t accidently happen anywhere else in the galaxy. Only on our planet. That’s pretty odd in itself.

I’m thinking God made mosquitoes with one major purpose in mind: A carrier of disease that will facilitate the final biblical plagues described in Revelation.

Of the 3500 species of mosquitos, only three have been found to be deadly for humans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, approximately 725,000 die each year from mosquito-borne disease. Of those, 625,000 die from malaria, a disease carried from person to person by the Anopheles mosquito. Malaria is one of the top three killers of children. Anopheles, of Greek origin, means of little use.

According to CDC, “Some of these diseases have long been present in the United States while others have recently emerged. These include some of the world's most destructive diseases, many of which are increasing threats to human health as the environment changes and globalization increases.”

Dengue fever: A disease transmitted via mosquito infects 400-million people a year, primarily in the tropics. Prevalent in Puerto Rico, the island suffered its most serious outbreak in 2010. Florida is now suffering from dengue for the first time in 75 years.

West Nile Virus: Most commonly transmitted via mosquito, symptoms are flu-like and most do not know they have the infection. Only a small percentage of cases prove fatal.

Chikungunya: Primarily affecting people in Africa, Asia, Europe and regions of the Indian Ocean it was discovered for the first time in the Americas and Caribbean in 2013. Symptoms include headache, joint pain and swelling and muscle pain. There is no vaccine.

Malaria: Also transmitted by the Anopheles mosquito, 660,000 died from malaria in 2010; and 219-million were infected.

What if mosquitos could transmit HIV? The theory has been proposed before.

Belle Glade, Florida, is a small farming community of 20,000. There is a very low percentage of gays in the community population. However, Belle Glade had the highest percentage per capita of HIV AIDS cases in 1985. Belle Glade also has a huge mosquito problem.

From the Orland Sentinel, April 19, 1985:

ATLANTA — The rural South Florida farming town of Belle Glade has the highest rate of AIDS in the world, and mosquitoes, sewage and squalor could be part of the reason, a Miami medical researcher said.

The deadly disease that destroys the body's immune system has struck 37 of Belle Glade's 20,000 residents, or about 1 in 600 residents, said Dr. Caroline MacLeod, director of the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Miami.

South Florida continues to have the highest HIV AIDS rate in the USA.

Transmission of HIV via mosquito has been pooh-poohed by the scientific community, though there are those within the scientific community who believe otherwise.

In 1988, Gus G. Sermos, a former Public Health Advisor and AIDS researcher for CDC authored a book, Doctors of Deceit and the AIDS Epidemic, in which he claimed the CDC obstructed an investigation of possible mosquito transmission of HIV by mosquitoes in “swamp infested” Belle Glade. He explains in this book of “negligence, incompetence, arrogance and complete lack of leadership” in the AIDS epidemic by the Public Health authorities and the CDC. This lack of leadership “caused the American citizens to become nothing more than unconsenting guinea pigs in an epidemic that may become the worst the world has ever known.”

From The Disappearance, page 153:

“And AIDS,” Vinny added. “The genetically modified mosquitos our brothers released in Africa and Europe are spreading the disease much faster than we thought.”

“Exactly, it’s the work of Allah,” Bubba added.

I’m certainly not as smart as the researchers; but it seems to me that if one can get AIDS via a needle, isn’t that similar to the mosquito’s proboscis that punctures the skin and sucks blood? The summer has started off with a bang as far as my mosquito population is concerned. I have repellant on the patio, porch and in the bedroom.

The point is this: The Bible states that in the last days, pestilence will be pervasive. I think that’s why God created the mosquito. I see no other purpose.

Personally, I do wish Noah had swatted the two mosquitoes.
