The discovery involved transmission within a Liberian family in the closing days of the West African epidemic that lasted from December 2014 to mid-2016. More than 28,600 people were infected and 11,325 died.

Opinion: Fourth Seal: Widespread Death on Earth (Revelation 6:7-8):
“When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.”
The pale horse comes in the aftermath of Antichrist (White Horse Rev. 6:1-2), War (Red Horse Rev. 6:3-4) and economic collapse (Rev. 6:5-6). With war and famine people fall prey to plague and wild beasts of the earth. The ‘Great Tribulation’ that Jesus warned about in Matthew 24:21 will have begun in which 1/4th of the world will perish.
The Ebola scare of 2014 had many heralding the beginning of the tribulation as the deadly disease quickly spread out of control in Africa. Bible prophecy however was clear then, as it is now, that the Pale Horse rider is still in the paddock and will not make his emergence until a series of chronological events takes place first.
Jesus’ own words should give His church comfort:
“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” Rev. 3:10
Jesus’ words were preceded by Paul in Rom. 5:9; 1 Thess. 1:10, 5:9 clearly teaching that the gates of hell (Matthew 16:18) would not prevail against the Church of Jesus Christ.
