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.
Kuwaiti stock market, banks suspend work on Wednesday after floods
Gulf Business. 11/14/2018
Kuwait’s Public Works minister resigned on Friday because of the extensive damage to public property caused by heavy rains and floods. State-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) has suspended work at all of its companies on Wednesday due to the extreme weather which has hit the Gulf state in recent days. Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) lifted a state of emergency on Saturday following the flooding, in which one person died, and said that facilities were operating normally.
But KOC, a KPC subsidiary, said in a statement that KPC had suspended work at all its companies after the cabinet decided to suspend work in government institutions on Wednesday, including ministries and schools. Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC), also a KPC subsidiary, said it had given its employees a day-off on Wednesday, except those whose jobs required them to be in their work places.
