Blog note. 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. End of note.
Powerful storm forms in Mediterranean Sea, strong winds, huge waves, heavy rain, snow and ice expected.

A big and powerful storm has formed in the Mediterranean Sea over the past 24 hours. Powerful winds, huge waves, heavy snow, rain and ice are expected to impact most of southeastern Europe.
“The first in a series of at least three upcoming cutoff lows over the central Mediterranean will cause excessive snowfall for parts of southeast Europe over the next 2 days,” Severe Weather Meteorologists (SWE) said. “The deep low will deepen rapidly over the northern Tyrrhenian sea on Thursday, deepening to close to 980 hPa central pressure. It will cause a windstorm over the W-CNTRL Mediterranean and move into the central Mediterranean / Ionian sea by Friday.”
“Large waves affect the western Mediterranean on Thursday, with maximum wave height reaching 8 – 9 m (26 – 29 feet) on Menorca, and 6 – 7 m (19 – 23 feet) on Mallorca (significant wave height is 1/2 to 2/3 of these values) and up to 10 – 14 m (33 – 46 feet) along parts of the coast of Algeria. … Also expect major waves across southern and central Mediterranean, particularly on the western and southern coast of Sicily, Lampedusa and Malta. Waves reaching maximum heights up to 8 -10 m (26 – 33 feet) are expected there on Friday, pushing towards the eastern Mediterranean and affecting the coast of Libya and western and southern Crete with waves up to 8 -10 m maximum height.”
A ship with 47 refugees onboard is facing severe weather conditions at sea and is asking any safe harbor in Europe:
There is the potential that this storm could be distinguished as a medicane, a more tropical-like cyclone moving through the Mediterranean Sea, AccuWeather senior meteorologist Eriuc Leister said.
Buckle up, this is just another powerful storm expected to affect Europe over the next two weeks
