… 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.
BIBLE PLAGUES BACK? HAIL WITH FIRE, ICE COVERS DESERT
Simultaneous freak storms around world even kill cattle
WND. December 10, 2018.
Lightning, accompanied by hail, set fire to a remote Australian landscape.
And pounding hail killed at least one person and livestock in Swaziland.
It all happened at about the same time, noted Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz at Breaking Israel News.
“Skeptics of the biblical account of the Ten Plagues will be chagrined to see shocking videos of a recent wave of hailstorms that struck simultaneously around the world in the most unlikely of places,” he wrote.
See video of hailstones in Saudi Arabia:
He noted the devastating effect of the hailstorm in southern Africa on cattle and the “unlikely meeting of the elemental opposites of fire and ice” witnessed by Australian farmers.
It all makes the “claims of a literal reading of the Bible more credible,” Berkowitz said.
The Saudi storm in the northern province of al-Jawf left behind flood and hail damage. In Swaziland, hail killed one person and at least 18 cattle. The fire and ice was reported in Australia’s Central Wheatbelt district.
“Fire and ice raining down on beast and man, mirroring the Biblical account of the Exodus. Prophecy predicts that the plagues of Egypt will reappear before the arrival of the Messiah. Could it be that is what we are witnessing?” Berkowitz asked.
