Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a women experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… 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.
‘Unprecedented’ sandstorm hits Thurso, Scotland. 102-year-old man says this is unprecedented. Watch!

A severe storm hit Scotland on January 7, 2019, producing what Thurso locals described as ‘unprecedented’ sandstorm. According to residents, until a few months ago, the sand never made its way into the town, not even during the worst storms.
However, a storm that hit the town on January 7, produced wind gusts of more than 130 km/h (80 mph), lifting up tons of sand from a 365 m (400 yards) long esplanade onto its streets, roofs, gardens and vehicles as much as 460 m (500 yards) inland.
According to The Press and Journal, Highland Council deployed 9 men, 3 lorries and 2 excavators to Thurso seafront to clear sand from the roads, footpaths and road drains.
“I’ve spoken to a 76-year-old lady and a 102-year-old man and they’ve told me this is unprecedented,” local councilor Matthew Reiss said. “I’ve seen drifts of sand 60 cm (2 feet) deep and gardens and flower beds covered in 5 – 8 cm (2 – 3 inches) inches of sand.”
Locals say they fear something has happened to cause the beach level to build up slowly in the bay over the past couple of years, and that sandstorms might occur more frequently.
The storm also affected other parts of the region, leaving some 11 000 customers without power and several schools closed.
The Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services on the west coast were disrupted and the Dounreay nuclear site in Caithness closed to most of its staff, BBC reports.
Scottish Avalanche Information Service (SAIS) teams reported high winds in Lochaber, the Cairngorms, Glen Coe, Torridon and on Creag Meagaidh.
In Torridon, the SAIS forecaster said strong winds had blown water back uphill at the Beinn a’ Mhuinidh waterfall.
