… 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).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several 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.

Flash floods and landslides have destroyed villages and washed out roads, killing at least 12 people in central Vietnam over the weekend as Tropical Depression “Toraji” moved into the country from the South China Sea. Leftovers are expected to drop heavy rain to the southern part of Thailand by Wednesday, November 21.
Toraji moved in just after dawn (LT) on November 18, dropping 379 mm (14.9 inches) of rain in just several hours on Nha Trang. On average, Nha Trang receives 332 mm (13 inches) of rain during the entire month of November.
Central Khanh Hoa province was worst affected, with numerous homes destroyed and at least 12 people killed and several missing. An official from the provincial disaster office told AFP they have mobilized hundreds of army troops to help restore lives and clean up damaged roads. Even the main highway, linking north and south Vietnam was temporarily blocked and some railway routes were interrupted.
This is the 8th tropical cyclone to hit Vietnam this year. However, the country should brace for another heavy rain maker as TD 33W continues intensifying east of the Philippines. It is expected to move over the country on November 20 and reach Vietnam by November 24 as a tropical storm.
