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.
UK’s warmest winter day on record

With three sites exceeding 20 °C (68 °F) on February 25, the United Kingdom has officially recorded its warmest winter day on record, the UK Met Office reports.
The highest temperature was recorded at Trawsgoed, Ceredigion, Wales at 20.6 °C (69.08 °F), breaking the previous February record for the country set in Greenwich in 1988 at 19.7 °C (67.46 °F). The temperature was reached just after 13:00 local time, the Office said.
February 25 was also the first time that a temperature of over 20 °C (68 °F) was recorded during winter.
Bala, Gwynedd was the coldest spot in Wales on February 25 with -2.3 °C (27.8 °F) but it reached 20 °C (68 °F) during the day, making a diurnal range of over 22 °C (39.6 °F).
“Yesterdays pattern indicated a very intense upper ridge, centered over the British Isles and the North Sea where strong subsidence within the ridge is resulting in incredibly warm airmass for the end of February,” Severe Weather Europe meteorologists said. “The airmass is 10 – 15 °C (18 – 27 °F) warmer than average!”
Unseasonably warm temperatures will continue over the coming days.
Key Gardens has reached 21.2 °C (70.16 °F) on February 26, which is the UK’s new maximum temperature record for February, winter and the year so far
