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 woman 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.
Extreme rainfall makes Flinders River a ‘mega river’ 60 km (37 miles) wide, Australia. This is its most significant flooding in more than 50 years and so vast it creates its own weather.

After days of extremely heavy rain falling over Queensland, Australia this month, Flinders River has grown to a ‘mega river’ and is now 60 km (37 miles) wide in some of its parts. This is its most significant flooding in more than 50 years and so vast it creates its own weather.
The sheer size of the swollen river is why up to 500 000 cattle had perished, meteorologist Rob Sharpe said.
“The amount of rainfall has been staggering. Above 500 mm (19.68 inches) of rain spread across a vast region 300 km (186 miles) across and 200 km (124 miles) north. A year’s worth of rain fell in one week and that’s a record flood event for the Flinders River,” Sharpe told news.com.au. “The Flinders River system is now a flood plain. This is a mega river making its way up to the gulf.”
The flood so vast it creates its own weather, BOM Queensland reports.
“The extra moisture from the flooding in helped this thunderstorm form this morning. It can be seen following the path of the flood waters very closely, thankfully falls were isolated.”
