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
… 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 floods hit Ottawa – breaking all-time high water records, Canada. Video.

Ottawa is fighting massive spring floods that hit areas along the Ottawa River on Friday, April 26, 2019. A state of emergency has been declared in at least 14 communities in the region.
The still-rising Ottawa-Gatineau region’s 2019 spring floods are officially the worst on record in some areas along the Ottawa River, with more records poised to fall as the river keeps rising over the next three days.
According to Ottawa River Regulating Committee, the river is already at record-breaking levels in Lac Coulonge, east of Pembroke, Ontario, as well as in Arnprior, Ontario, and Ottawa. Records in Lac Coulonge date back to 1985, and to 1950 for the other two cities, CBC reports.
The current level at Lac Coulonge is 108.93 m (357.4 feet) above sea level, 41 cm (16.1 inches) above the previous record set in 2017.
The water level in Arnprior is 76.09 m (249.6 feet) above sea level, 14 cm (5.51 inches) above the record set in 2017.
Records were also broken at Britannia in Ottawa on Sunday when the water level rose to 2 cm (0.78 inches) above the peak in 2017.
The water is expected to rise:
cm (18.5 inches) in Lac Coulonge.
Another 26 cm (10.2 inches) in Arnprior.
Another 39 cm (15.3 inches) in Britannia.
Another 50 cm (19.6 inches) in Hull.
Another 21 cm (8.2 inches) in Thurso.
Another 16 cm (6.2 inches) in Hawkesbury.
The City of Ottawa has declared a state of emergency as river levels continue to rise, threatening to surpass those reached when flooding devastated some neighborhoods two years ago.
“We are now beyond our city’s capacity, and that is why we have called in the Armed Forces and has been told 400 troops will be deployed to affected areas,” Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said.
States of emergency have been declared in the following municipalities:
City of Ottawa
Town of Huntsville
Town of Bracebridge
Township of Minden Hills
Township of Whitewater Region
Township of Horton
Township of McNab/Braeside
City of Clarence-Rockland
Township of Alfred-Plantagenet
Township of Laurentian Valley
County of Renfrew
Township of Greater Madawaska
The Hull marina in Gatineau, Quebec is expected to break a record in the coming days.
The forecast, a subject to a high degree of uncertainty, says water levels will continue to rise another 40 to 50 cm (15.7 – 19.6 inches) in parts of the city and should peak in Ottawa-Gatineau Tuesday or Wednesday, April 30 / May 1, according to information provided by officials and reported by the CBC.
