Intense Tropical Cyclone Haleh becomes record-setting storm

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.

Intense Tropical Cyclone Haleh becomes record-setting storm

By Eric Leister, AccuWeather senior meteorologist

Intense Tropical Cyclone Haleh has helped the 2018-2019 southwest Indian Ocean tropical season move into the record books.

Haleh intensified into an intense tropical cyclone and become the sixth storm to do so this season, tying for the most ever in a single season. This record was previous set by the season of 2006-2007.

As of Monday, Haleh had sustained winds equal to a Category 3 major hurricane in the Atlantic or East Pacific basins.

The good news is that Haleh remains over the open waters of the southwest Indian Ocean and will bring no direct impacts to land in the coming days as it tracks toward the south-southwest.

Haleh will pass safely to the east of Reunion, Mauritius and Rodrigues in the next 24 hours before tracking farther to the south and eventually eastward later this week.

There remains plenty of time for this season to end up in the record book all alone as the season does not official end until April 30.
