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.

A fast-moving hailstorm destroyed as many as 150 pucca homes and injured around 40 people in Alivardipur village near Hindon floodplains of Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India on February 7, 2019.
The rain started around 13:50 local time, followed by 60-seconds-long hailstorm around 15:40 and another storm accompanied by high-speed wind. As many as 15 homes were destroyed and over 1 000 people rendered homeless.
Local police said they received first reports of collapsed homes around 19:30 local time.
“Multiple teams of policemen, ambulances, and fire tenders were rushed to the spot. Initially, the police team found 10 – 12 injured people and rushed them to various hospitals in Noida and Greater Noida. The rest were taken to hospitals later.”
Residents said they started rescue operation soon after several residents were crushed underneath the piles of bricks.
Local authorities said those affected by the storm are not entitled to any compensation or rehabilitation because all those homes were built illegally. Images available here.
Almost 10 years have passed since Delhi saw hailstorm of such intensity, local meteorologists said. While Delhi typically receives only 15 mm (0.59 inches) of rain in February, this storm dropped 30 mm (1.2 inches) in just one day.
A huge tornado later formed and swept through the city of Faridabad in the neighboring state of Haryana. Damage reports mention a lot of debris on the roads and numerous motorcycles knocked over on the ground.
