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.
High risk of excessive rainfall across Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois, U.S.

The threat of flash flooding continues this afternoon and evening across portions of Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois with a HIGH risk of excessive rainfall, NWS WPC warns.
Severe thunderstorms and flash flooding are likely once again from the Southern Plains to the Midwest today. Periodic risks of severe thunderstorms, along with flash flooding, are forecast from the Central and Southern Plains to the Great Lakes and Northeast through the Memorial Day weekend.
Generally, no big changes to the prevailing weather pattern are expected across the United States for this Memorial Day weekend as active weather is forecast to continue.
This will be in response to a strong upper level trough situated over the Intermountain West and a large upper level ridge anchored over the southeastern U.S.
A strong clash of air masses from the southern Plains to the Ohio Valley region will support multiple episodes of severe weather along with the threat for additional flash flooding in the general vicinity of a slow moving frontal boundary where multiple waves of low pressure will be developing along it.
One low pressure system will be lifting northeast across the northern Plains and upper Midwest by this evening which will drive a cold front gradually across the Midwest, but the southwestern portion of this front will stall out and be draped well southwest down across the central and southern High Plains.
Numerous heavy showers and thunderstorms will focus along this front this evening and through Saturday, May 25, bringing multiple threats of severe weather and strong concerns for flash flooding.
In fact, the Storm Prediction Center currently has an Enhanced Risk area of severe weather over parts of west Texas for this evening and overnight, and then extending northward over a broader area of the central and southern High Plains through Saturday and Saturday night.
Meanwhile, a Slight Risk of severe weather extends well to the northeast through the upper Midwest in the vicinity of the aforementioned front.
Heavy rainfall that is expected across this entire region will facilitate flash flood concerns, and the Weather Prediction Center has highlighted a High Risk of excessive rainfall through early Saturday morning for areas of north-central Oklahoma and southeast Kansas where additional heavy rain falling on extremely sensitive and generally saturated soil conditions will encourage significant runoff.
The High Risk area is embedded within a broader Moderate Risk area that extends northeast up across a large area of the Midwest. A Moderate Risk of excessive rainfall includes a large area of the central Plains and middle MS Valley Saturday through Sunday, May 26.
