Indian seer Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, who had allegedly foretold disasters that affected Philippines, including the super typhoon Haiyan and the earthquake in Bohol, has now been linked to the 'mysterious flesh-eating illness' spreading in Pangasinan.
Can the prediction of three major calamities be passed off as coincidence?
The prophet stated in April 2013, at the 24th National Prayer Gathering at Cuneta Astrodome, that a grievous disease will spread all over the world, which will consume the flesh of men and pierce through the bones.
He claimed that this disease will begin from Pangasinan, Philippines, reports The Summit Express.
"This will then spread to CEBU," he said.
It has been reported that two persons in the Philippines who contracted the 'flesh-eating' disease are suffering from multiple skin lesions. According to the mother of one of the victims, it all started with a rash and then progressed to a deadly infection.
Local medical experts attempting to diagnose the disease have not ruled out the possibilty of leprosy or psoriasis. Medical tests, including biopsy, could not find out exactly how the lesions appeared.
Selvaraj, founder of the Jesus Ministries, and Bro. Vincent Selvakumar wanted to warn Filipinos that these dangers will come true if residents did not repent and pray.
"If you don't repent and pray, God has planned much destruction all over the Philippines which are very disastrous. The cup of God's wrath over the Philippines is very very disastrous," Sadhu said.
"There will be much disaster all over the land. The Lord will give you over to flood and waters. The Lord will torture your land with typhoons and hurricanes. The Lord will plague the land with diseases. The Lord will punish your land with famine and scattering."

Below are the other prophecies made by Selvaraj in the order of their 'occurrence':
Diseases in Cebu and Bohol
"The Lord said another disease will come from BOHOL. It will be a challenge to your nation. This disease will spread very wildly so that every people will fear. It will spread all over the land, and then it will spread into many nations of the world. When this disease strikes a man, it will cause the man's body to turn black. Many old people's bodies will burst. Their bodies will decay and rot. People will be afraid to bury such people. The Lord said that such plagues will come to surround your land."
Floods in Luzon and Cebu
"There's going to come mighty floods in LUZON and CEBU."
"It will come as a result of the winds and the waters. All these dangers will come that history has never seen before."
"All your irrigatable lands will be destroyed. At that time you'll stretch forth your begging hands for food from other nations. Your children are going to die of famine and hunger."
