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, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.
Deaths reported after new earthquake in Indonesia
By Paulina Dedaj | Fox News | October 11, 2018
At least three people were killed Thursday after a 6.0 earthquake struck just off the coast of a popular tourist island in Indonesia, officials said. The deaths come just weeks after a magnitude-7.5 earthquake and tsunami left more than 2,000 people dead.
Authorities said that the latest earthquake hit early Thursday morning just 100 miles northwest of Bali, at a depth of 6 miles. Indonesia’s disaster agency, BNPB, is asking for tents, water treatment units, generators and transport from other countries as it still recovers from the previous earthquake and tsunami, which struck Sept. 28.
A spokesman with the agency said Wednesday that the death toll from that disaster has risen to 2,045. Thousands more are possibly buried in areas where the force of the quake liquefied the soil and sucked houses into the earth. Several homes were also lost in Thursday’s earthquake, which affected parts of Bali and East Java.
