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.

Where is Cyclone Trevor now?
Cyclone Trevor is still churning through the Coral Sea off Australia as it whirls slowly towards the eastern Cape York Peninsula coast.
As of 11pm AEST (1pm GMT), Trevor was located 114 miles (185 km) east of Lockhart River and 208 miles (335 km) east of Weipa.
Weipa is a mining town on the Gulf of Carpentaria coast of the Cape York Peninsula with a population of just under 4,000 people.

The huge storm is moving at a speed of 57 mph (91km/h), according to the live tracker from Cyclocane.
In its latest bulletin, the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology wrote: “The cyclone is expected to become a category 3 cyclone on Tuesday morning, before crossing the coast south of Lockhart River on Tuesday evening.
“Tropical cyclone Trevor may weaken below cyclone intensity as it crosses the northern Peninsula during Tuesday night and Wednesday.
“Later on Wednesday, it will enter the Gulf of Carpentaria where it will reintensify into a tropical cyclone.”
The storm is moving in a southwest trajectory as it crosses over the sea but will move more westerly after making landfall.
Queenslanders living in the affected areas have been warned of destructive winds, heavy rainfall and flooding.
The Bureau of Meteorology’s Sam Campbell said: “There’s also the threat of abnormally high tides and the potential for inundation of low-lying areas as the cyclone crosses on Tuesday.”
The cyclone is the latest extreme weather event to hit Australia after torrential rainfall along the country’s east coast.
Further south along the Sunshine Coast, 211 millimetres of rain fell in some areas, while 98 millimetres drenched Brisbane City.
