Bog 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, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.

Cholera outbreak kills 10 people in Zimbabwe
HARARE (Reuters) – A cholera outbreak has killed 10 people in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare after they drank contaminated water, a city health official said on Sunday.
Harare city council has struggled to supply water to some suburbs for more than a decade, forcing residents to rely on water from open wells and community boreholes.
Clemence Duri, Harare city’s health director said more than 300 people had been hospitalized after contracting the waterborne disease which causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. The outbreak was first reported on Friday.
“The death toll has risen to ten. We have established that the outbreak was caused by a burst sewer pipe which contaminated borehole water,” Duri said, adding that the pipe had been replaced.
Zimbabwe suffered its biggest cholera outbreak in 2008 at the height of an economic crisis when more than 4,000 people died and another 40,000 became sick.
