… 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.

Heavy rainfall and devastating floods, wreaking havoc across Saudi Arabia since November 10 continued into December. The rains have so far left more than 30 people dead, disrupted traffic and forced evacuation of at least 4 000 people. Authorities are urging residents to take utmost precaution and to stay away from valleys and reefs during heavy rain or flash floods.
Further torrential rain was forecast for several regions of the Kingdom, including Tabuk, Madinah and its coastal areas, Al-Jouf, the Northern Border Region and Hail, the General Authority of Meteorology and Environmental Protection warned Friday, November 30, 2018. Thunderstorms were also expected in the Makkah area, including its coastal areas, as well as in the southwestern highlands.
Maj. Abdulaziz bin Farhan Al-Shammari, a civil defense spokesman in Tabuk, said they were working on clearing recent floodwaters in inundated areas, valleys and coastlines throughout the province. Al-Shammari warned of the dangers of floods and rain, stressing the need for citizens and residents to cooperate and follow the warnings issued by the civil defense.
On the same day, brutal flash flooding hit Yabu al-Bahr, a major Red Sea port in the Al Madinah Province of western Saudi Arabia: The same storm was responsible for triggering flooding rain in Bodrum, Turkey on November 29. “The city is currently experiencing a historical disaster,” Bodrum Mayor Mehmet Kocadon said at the time, adding that citizens were warned in advance of the heavy rain risk. “It was like a monsoon rain. There are a lot of floods, there is a great disaster around city center,” he said.
