Blog note: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11). Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. This verse from Luke is one of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency and occurrence prior to giving birth. End of note.

Dozens of people have been killed and scores injured in the worst wildfires to affect Greece in over a decade. The fast-moving fires picked up speed Monday evening and are burning across the Attica reigon. Attica has a populate of around of 3.5 million people, including the Greek capital of Athens and a number of suburban towns.
The hard-hit resort town of Mati, Greek authorities say they have discovered the bodies of 25 people who died in the fire. Some survivors in the area reportedly escaped by diving into the sea or getting on rescue boats. So far more than 700 people have been activated, mainly from the area of Mati, according to government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos. Greek authorities blame the rapid expansion of the fire on increased wind intensity, which prevented residents and visitors in the area from escaping the blaze.
