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.

Devastating wildfires continue burning across Alberta, Canada, with 8 of total 24 out of control as of June 1, 2019. 60 fire bans are in place across the state, including in the cities of Edmonton and Red Deer. More than 11 000 people have been evacuated and another 12 000 placed on evacuation alert.

An eight-hour evacuation alert was issued for a large swath of Mackenzie County on Saturday afternoon, June 1 from the outskirts of High Level east to Fort Vermillion, and south towards the mandatory evacuation area around the Paddle Prairie Métis Settlement. The area is threatened by Chuckegg Creek fire which continues burning southwest of High Level.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are putting a wide swath of the High Level area and Mackenzie County area on an 8-hour evacuation alert,” county officials said.

The alert was issued due to shifting winds and dry conditions. This means residents – located in Mackenzie County east of High Level, in areas north and south of the Peace River, including people in La Crete, Fort Vermilion and Beaver First Nation’s Boyer River and Child Lake Reserves – should start getting prepared to evacuate: Fuel your vehicles; Gather important documents; Have enough food and water for 2 to 3 days.

“If a mandatory evacuation order is issued, bring medication, blankets, sleeping bags, personal items and identification.”

“If you have livestock ensure that they are in a safe pasture with limited growth, or ploughed field and far from forested areas. There should be plenty of shade and water. Discing or ploughing the outside perimeter of the field to make a fire break will help prevent wildfire from jumping into this safety field. If you are required to evacuate and are unable to take your livestock please cut fences, open gates and leave lots of water. Take off any halters. Mark your animals with your phone number for ease of identification.”

There are currently 2 active wildfires in the High Level Forest Area and both are Out of Control.

The Chuckegg Creek Wildfire (HWF-042) remains Out of Control (OC) at 279 551 ha (690 785 acres). The fire started during the first half of May and reached 40 500 ha (100 000 acres) on May 20. Its cause is still under investigation.

The Jackpot Creek Wildfire (HWF-066) around Steen River also remains Out of Control (OC) at 24 730 ha (61 109 acres). 

A Fire Ban and Off-Highway Vehicle Restriction is in effect for the High Level Forest Area due to warmer temperatures, gusty winds and no significant rain in the forecast. The ban and restriction will remain in effect until conditions improve. All fire permits are suspended and no new fire permits will be issued.
