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.
Tropical Cyclone “Wallace” developing north of Western Australia
Posted by Teo Blašković on April 5, 2019
A tropical low continues to strengthen over the Timor Sea, north of Western Australia today and is expected to become Tropical Cyclone “Wallace” Friday night or early Saturday, April 6, 2019 (AWST). Outer bands will bring rain and gusty winds to the Kimberley coast of Western Australia this weekend.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology continues to monitor the tropical low to the northwest of the Top End which has been tracking slowly west southwest into the Timor Sea, taking the more severe weather away from the Northern Territory.
Development of the system has been slow over the last 24 hours because winds in this area have been unfavorable, however today it is expected to move further west into an area that is more conducive to cyclogenesis and the current expectation is that it may develop into tropical cyclone Wallace later tonight or in the early hours of Saturday morning, north of the Kimberley coast, BOM Meteorologist Andrea Peace said.
A warning has been issued for coastal communities between Kalumburu and Cockatoo Island. There is potential for gales with gusts to 100 km/h (62 mph) to develop about the exposed coasts in this region from late tonight or early Saturday, April 6 if the system is to track further south than expected.
The gales may extend further to exposed coastal parts from Cockatoo Island to northern parts of the Dampier Peninsula from Saturday afternoon.
At this stage the most likely path is to the west southwest, away from the Western Australian mainland, however, there remains a potential for the system to approach the west Pilbara coast early next week.
The movement of the system will become clearer over the weekend, Peace said, urging residents to keep checking the Bureau website or app for the latest forecasts and warnings.
