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.
Very powerful explosions of light detected in Earth’s atmosphere, possibly a new physical phenomena
Posted by TW on February 17, 2019. Watchers.news
Russian Astro and Geophysics satellite named after 18th-century scientists Mikhail Lomonosov, also known as MVL-300, has reportedly detected a previously unknown physical phenomenon in the Earth’s atmosphere.
This space-based observatory was launched in 2016 in an effort to study cosmic rays in the high-energy regime near the energetic spectrum cutoff, examine the characteristics of gamma-ray bursts in the universe, study Transient Luminous Effects in Earth’s atmosphere, and study Earth’s magnetosphere and near-Earth radiation environment using different detector systems.
According to Mikhail Panasyuk, the director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics at the Moscow State University who runs the Lomonosov Project, the observatory has encountered new physical phenomena.
On several occasions, Lomonosov has detected very powerful ‘explosions’ of light, Panasyuk said. However, everything underneath them was clear.
“There were no storms and no clouds underneath them,” Panasyuk said. “We do not yet know their physical nature.”
It is due to this absence of storms and clouds beneath why scientists believe this is previously undiscovered phenomena as other transient luminous events like sprites and elves all emanate from storms below.
Scientists have also eliminated ground explosions and missile/rocket launches as the cause of the phenomenon and are still analyzing the events.
It should be noted that this new physical phenomenon, or whatever these explosions of light are, was detected prior to June 30, 2018, when it was published that the satellite had suffered a malfunction in its data transmission system. As of 2019, the status of the satellite remains unknown.
