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.
Deadly floods hit Ghana, leave twin-city metropolis Sekondi/Takoradi without power. Multiple videos.

At least 10 people have been killed after a new wave of heavy rain hit parts of Ghana on May 31 and June 1, 2019. Many parts of the Western Region’s capital Sekondi/Takoradi were flooded, resulting in total power outage. Heavy rain and floods also hit capital Acra, leaving at least one person dead.
Heavy rain hit Ghana’s Western Region over the past couple of days, leaving 10 people dead in two separate weather-related incidents.
According to local media reports, 5 young members of a family were crushed to death at Ngyeresia after a huge tree fell onto their home. The community is located near Essipong in the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis. One person survived and is receiving medical attention.
Locals said the tree fell after a rainstorm that started Thursday intensified throughout Friday, May 31.
Another 5 people were killed in the same community after a mud house they lived in collapsed.
Flash floods affected much of capital Sekondi/Takoradi, completely submerging areas such as Anaji, Effiekuma, Sekondi, Kwansarodo and Intankoful among others.
Two days of heavy rain submerged the Power Distribution Service in Sekondi which supplies power to most parts of Takoradi, resulting in a total power outage.
Officials said they switched off the equipment to protect the facility and urged customers to stay calm.
Heavy rains also hit the capital Acra last week, causing severe flash floods and claiming at least one life.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) said recent floods in Accra destroyed hundreds of homes, displaced many people and claimed at least 6 people.
“Even though flooding is not a new phenomenon in Accra, we are deeply alarmed at the current spate of flooding given the fact that, we are yet to experience the peak rainfall season for this year,” NDC said in a statement.
“If many parts of Accra are currently submerged in flood waters as a result of the 45-minutes light rainfall recorded yesterday, then what will befall the nation in the event of heavy torrential rains, which are normally recorded between the months of June to July every year? Clearly, a major flood disaster is looming large upon us, and the impact may be very catastrophic for the people of Accra; if urgent action is not taken.”
