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.
5 people killed after heavy rains hit capital Conakry, Guinea

At least 5 people were killed after first heavy rains of the season hit capital Conakry, Guinea on May 17 and 18, 2019.
Locals said the flooding was caused by huge amounts of trash blocking drainage channels, in some areas of Dabondy, where 5 people died, up to 2 m (6.5 feet) high.
According to AfricaGuinee, communal authorities accused the victims of being responsible for their misfortune. Locals, however, said garbage trucks didn’t collect trash for over two months and asked the state to help them.
Residents fear other parts of the capital will suffer the same fate due to clogged drainage channels, especially in some Bonfi neighborhoods.
AfricaGuinee said one of their reporters went to different parts of the city and found clogged channels and even some houses built on gutters that should serve as drainage.
Some areas of the city have been cleaned since then and some homes demolished.
