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.

Heavy rain hits parts of Zimbabwe, breaks 42-year-old record, 60 gold miners feared dead

Heavy rain hit parts of Zimbabwe on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 12 and 13, 2019, causing floods in which up to 60 illegal gold miners are feared to have lost their lives.

The miners were trapped overnight Wednesday after a dam burst flooded two disused shafts in a mining town of Battlefields, 145 km (90 miles) southwest of capital Harare. Only 8 people have been rescued so far.


The Meteorological Services Department of Zimbabwe (MSD), said 203 mm (7.99 inches) of rain was recorded February 13 in the small town of Chiredzi, Masvingo province, breaking its 42-year-old daily rainfall record (98 mm / 3.85 inches set in 1977).

Mukadzi received 126 mm (4.96 inches) of rain during the same period, 75 mm (2.95 inches) at Beitbridge, 73 mm (2.87 inches) and 70 mm (2.75 inches) in Zaka.

MSD warned heavy rain was expected countrywide on February 14, resulting in possible flash flooding and infrastructural damage.

Although Zimbabwe has rich platinum, diamond, gold, coal and copper deposits, it’s in the grip of a deep economic crisis.
