… 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.

With severe to extreme heatwave conditions set to continue and 144 bushfires still burning, Queensland authorities are warning people to remain on high alert into the weekend and next week. On November 30, 2018, Queensland firefighters are still battling 144 bushfires burning across the state which already saw 200 fires this week. The government rated the danger as ‘catastrophic’ on November 28, for the first time in the history of the state.
“What we experienced yesterday was off the charts,” Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Thursday, November 29. “No one has ever recorded these kinds of conditions ever in the history of Queensland.”
Crews have been confronted with high temperatures and ‘unimaginable’ conditions, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said. “But due to all the proactive work conducted over the last several days, we have lost a minimal amount of houses, thankfully.” Extreme temperatures have also taken down 15 firefighters with heat stress.
At least two homes, two cabins and 15 sheds have been destroyed, with a further 14 homes damaged, since the crisis began on Saturday, November 24, forcing thousands of people to evacuate. Bruce Gunn, Bureau of Meteorology state manager, said Friday, November 30 there is little relief in sight. “The fire danger is well below the catastrophic levels of Wednesday but it is still in the very high to severe range and that is serious enough to get fires going again and continue them on,” Gunn said.
“There is no significant rainfall expected to stop these fires so while we don’t have the catastrophic conditions, the fires will continue until we can find another way or another to put them out.” At 20:00 LT, November 30, the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service urged residents of Deepwater, Baffle Creek, Rules Beach and Oyster Creek, just south of Agnes Water, to evacuate.
