Babylon NEOM

Snow and hail blanket parts of the Arabian Desert. And you thought it never snows or hails in the Saudi desert of NEOM (Babylon)!

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).

… 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)

(Emphasis Added).

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.

Snow and hail blanket parts of the Arabian Desert

While most of the Middle East suffered prolonged heavy rains and deadly floods over the past 30 days, winter weather hit parts of the Arabian Peninsula, covering its deserts in a layer of snow. Northern Saudi cities, including Ha’il, al-Jouf and Tabuk experienced another round of snow this week, bringing both joy and misery to its residents.

On November 19, Al Qassim region, located almost at the center of the Arabian Peninsula and known for its cold winters and hot summers, experienced intense hailstorms and snow fog. The region saw its first snow of the season at the beginning of November. At the time, snow and hail fell as south as Maysan in the country’s southwest. Many avid photographers documented the view, as the cold weather helped keep the sheet of snow covering trees, valleys and mountains from melting.
