… 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.
Historic disaster: Heavy rain sweeps away cars, leaves Bodrum underwater, Turkey
Posted by TW on December 01, 2018. Watchers.news.
Heavy rain hit the Turkish holiday resort of Bodrum, Muğla province on November 29, 2018, causing dangerous flash floods, sweeping away cars and stranding residents. The rain was preceded by at least one waterspout and accompanied by large hail. This is the second flash flood event to hit the city in 10 days.
“The city is currently experiencing a historical disaster,” Bodrum Mayor Mehmet Kocadon said, 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.
Rainfall began in the morning hours and grew in intensity in mid-afternoon, turning streets into lakes and stranding drivers and pedestrians, the Daily Sabah reports.
A waterspout formed on the sea between Bodrum and the Greek island of Kos around 14:00 LT and was visible from the Turkish shore for about 15 minutes, causing panic. However, the waterspout headed west and was eventually lost from sight.
Flood waters reached 1 m (3.3 feet) deep in parts of the city, sweeping away cars down the streets and damaging homes and businesses. The worst of the damage occurred in the city’s west. An ancient tomb dating back to the late Roman period was found following after the rain, according to Anadolu Agency. The tomb was hidden underground for thousands of years.
