Massive mudslide wipes out remote villages in PNG’s Enga Province

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.

Massive mudslide wipes out remote villages in PNG’s Enga Province

At least 8 people have been killed and 4 remain missing after a devastating mudslide hit two remote villages in Papua New Guinea’s remote Enga Province on April 15, 2018. Search and rescue operations are still in progress.

The event is a cruel reminder that many communities in mostly-rural PNG live in areas prone to frequent disaster, Radio New Zealand’s Mackenzie Smith said.

Local authorities said Kalepata village was completely wiped out. Some of the homes had been buried by 6 to 7 m (20 – 23 feet) of earth, rocks and trees.

“Well over a hundred buildings and homes, food gardens, crops, trees, banyan, trees, vegetables, the vegetation.. massive, massive destruction,” Michael Kambao, a provincial government lawyer living in the area said.

Smith said entire hillsides are missing… ‘their innards cleaving a muddy stream down Tsak valley.’

Heavy rainfall is forecast over most of the country over the next 24 hours, particularly across central and central-eastern provinces.
