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.
Tropical Cyclone “Ann” moving toward northern Queensland, Australia
Posted by Teo Blašković on May 13, 2019. Watchers.news
Tropical Cyclone “Ann” remains Category 1 and continues moving WNW toward northern Queensland. The cyclone is expected to cross the northeast tropical coast of Queensland on Wednesday morning (LT), May 15, 2019, most likely as a category 1 system.
At 12:00 UTC (22:00 AEST) on May 13, the center of Tropical Cyclone “Ann” was located about 640 km (397 miles) ENE of Cairns and 250 km (155 miles) NE of Willis Island. The cyclone is moving WNW at 27 km/h (16 mph) with maximum sustained winds near the center of 75 km/h (46 mph) and gusts to 100 km/h (62 mph). Central pressure was 998 hPa.
Queensland TCWC expects Ann to continue its current motion and cross the northeast tropical coast of Queensland on Wednesday morning local time, most likely as a category 1 system (AEST is UTC +10).
Gales with gusts to about 100 km/h (62 mph) may develop about the coast and adjacent inland areas between Lockhart River and Port Douglas early on Wednesday morning and may extend north to Cape York later on Wednesday morning as the cyclone approaches the coast.
As the cyclone crosses/approaches the coast, a storm tide may occur between Lockhart River and Cape Tribulation.
Large waves may produce minor flooding along the foreshore.
People living in areas which may be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to help their neighbors.
Areas of heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, are likely to develop about the coast and ranges between about Lockhart River and Ingham during Tuesday night and are likely to persist through Wednesday.
A Flood Watch has been issued for coastal catchments between Cooktown and Ingham.
People between Cape York and Port Douglas should consider what action they will need to take if the cyclone threat increases.
