If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
What is pestilence?
“Or PLAGUE, in the Hebrew tongue, as in most others, expresses all sorts of distempers and calamities. The Hebrew word which properly signifies “the plague” is extended to all epidemical and contagious diseases.
The glandular plague, which in modern times has proved so fatal in the East, is the most virulent and contagious of diseases. In the fourteenth century it overran Europe, Asia, and Africa, and 25,000,000 are estimated to have died of it within three years. Like the Asiatic cholera, it is one of the most appalling scourges sin has brought on this world; and may in this point of view correspond with the “plagues” referred to in the Bible.”—ATS Bible Dictionary.

Is God ‘pleased’ with the abominable sins of the world?
And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 1 John 3:22
Grim Statistics: As of 6-5-2020; the United States has LEGALLY aborted (murdered) over 471,000 children this year. (*factored @ 3,000 per day x 157 days) World YTD statistics; as of 10:45 am, EST: Over 18,219,225 babies have been murdered. These numbers represent more than 125,000 world-wide abortions per day. (Estimate: “40-50,000,000 per year”)
*”In the USA, where nearly half of pregnancies are unintended and four in 10 of these are terminated by abortion, there are over 3,000 abortions per day. Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies in the USA (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion.”—WorldoMeter. Abortion = Mass Murder.
“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,” (read more here)→ Proverbs 6:16-19
Commentary: “Hands that shed innocent blood; human blood; and that of persons who have not been guilty of any capital sin, for which they ought to die by the laws of God or men, and yet shed or poured out as common water; such hands must be defiled, and such men must be hateful to God, they destroying His image, and being like to the devil, who was a murderer from the beginning.”—Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27
“The Divine command is, “Thou shall do no murder,” and those who break it will find, even if they escape man, that the Lord is “the avenger of blood,” That the shedding of innocent blood cues for vengeance, and pulls down God’s heavy judgments on the murderer.“—Pulpit Commentary.
