Eruption at Mount Merapi, estimated volume of lava dome 458 000 cubic meters, Indonesia

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 period
… 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.

Eruption at Mount Merapi, estimated volume of lava dome 458 000 cubic meters, Indonesia

An eruption at one of Indonesia’s most active volcanos, Mount Merapi, produced ash column up to 3 768 m (12 326 feet) above sea level on June 3, 2019. By June 1, the volcano had emitted 72 ash columns from its crater since it entered a new effusive eruption phase on January 29, 2019. Residents are warned to remain outside of the 3 km (1.6 miles) exclusion zone.

Based on ash column activity, the volcano’s lava dome could potentially cause a lava avalanche of 458 000 m3 (1.5 million ft3) in volume that would move up to 3 km (1.86 miles) from the crater towards the river Gendol, Indonesia’s Geological Disaster Research and Development Centre Agency head Hanik Humaida said.

In addition, the agency reported multiphase and low frequency tremors occurring at the crater of the volcano, which is a popular hiking spot on the border of Yogyakarta and Central Java provinces.

“Based on those volcanic activities, the volcano status remains on caution alert level (2 of 4). A 3 km radius exclusion zone from the crater remains in place and tourist objects outside the exclusion zone are safe for tourists to visit,” Humaida said.

People living in KRB III are urged to follow the activity of the volcano.

The 2 968 m (9 737 feet) high Mount Merapi’s last deadly eruption was in 2010. Its last major eruption took place in 2018, causing evacuation of people living within a 5 km (3.1 miles) radius and temporarily closing Yogyakarta’s airport.
