… 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.
Unseasonable dust storm rolls through Gansu, China. Worst dust storm seen in 10 years.

A massive dust storm swept over China’s northwestern province of Gansu on November 25, 2018, reducing visibility in some areas to just 100 m (330 feet). Dust storms here are expected during spring, not in winter.
Meteorologists said wind speed of around 17 m/s formed a ‘sand wall’ as high as 100 m (330 feet).
The storm hit Zhangye City around 16:00 local time, reducing minimum visibility to just 900 m (2,900 feet) and in some areas to 100 m. “The dust storm reached when I was just walking out of my home so I ran back and stayed at home for the rest of the afternoon. I could not see anything through my window,” one of the residents told Bloomberg News. “Usually we have dust storm here in spring, not in winter,” he said. “This is probably the worst dust storm I have seen in 10 years.”
There were no reports of damage or casualties.
