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.

At least 11 people were injured, numerous homes were damaged and debris scattered at the airport after several suspected tornadoes swept through the Kansas City metropolitan area on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.
The injuries have been reported in Douglas County after it was hit by a large and destructive tornado. Numerous homes were damaged, large trees and power poles downed, leaving more than 13 000 without power.
The tornado first impacted just outside of county seat Lawrence and then moved into the town of Linwood, causing serious damage.
According to the Lawrence Journal-World, Douglas County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jenn Hethcoat said six people had been taken to the Lawrence hospital with injuries suffered during the storm, including one with serious injuries, and five more people were headed to the hospital.
Kansas City received 39.6 mm (1.56 inches) of rainfall on May 28, pushing the monthly total to 325.3 mm (12.81 inches) and breaking the old May record of 323.8 mm (12.75 inches) set in 1995, NWS office in Kansas City said. This also makes this May the 3rd wettest month for any month in Kansas City’s 131-year period of record.
“Our survey crews will be heading out shortly to survey damage from the two tornadoes that we know of,” the office said 11:33 UTC today. “A proper survey takes time and we’ll have more information for you later today.”
