Do biblical times return?

People who read the bible are probably familiar with the plagues of Egypt, like this one:

This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: 'How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, so that they may worship me. If you refuse to let them go, I will bring locusts into your country tomorrow. They will cover the face of the ground so that it cannot be seen. They will devour what little you have left after the hail, including every tree that is growing in your fields. They will fill your houses and those of all your officials and all the Egyptians—something neither your fathers nor your forefathers have ever seen from the day they settled in this land till now.

If you now see what is happening in Egypt and in Eastern Africa it seems like history is repeating itself.

Billions of locusts are eating everything in sight in east Africa right now, and every single day many more farms are being completely wiped out.  Unfortunately, authorities are telling us that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg.  In fact, if extreme measures are not implemented immediately, authorities are claiming that this locust plague could literally get “500 times” worse in a few months.  But it is difficult to imagine conditions getting any worse than they are at this moment.  Ravenous locust swarms that are “the size of cities” are consuming crops at a staggering pace, and this could potentially cause famine on the African continent that is unlike anything we have ever seen before.



What do you think? Coincedence?

It's interesting, isn't it? I often notice that major events occurring in our world have some kind of correlation with biblical prophecies (the end times/book of revelation etc). I have read about these locusts causing a lot of trouble. 

It does make me wonder if there's anything to it, or if it's just a case of confirmation bias ("the mind sees what it chooses to see"). Nostradamus also has some really fascinating prophecies that would appear to have come true. 

For now I will see it as a coincidence, but if any more of these things start happening I may begin to change my mind.

Some of it is probably coincidence, but I definitely believe a lot of things going on in the world (like what you mentioned above) are acts of God. But that is just my opinion as a theist.

Maybe it's a simple question of history repeating itself.

But yes, we do live in a strange and also I think exciting world.
