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.

Strong eruptions took place at Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano at 14:19 and 14:47 UTC (09:19 and 09:47 UTC) on June 3, 2019, producing an ash column up 11.3 km (37 000 feet) above sea level. The Alert Level remains at Yellow, Phase Two (middle level on a three-color scale).
The eruption was seen in satellite imagery moving in multiple directions, the Washington VAAC reported. The highest volcanic ash was seen rising up to 11.3 km (37 000 feet) a.s.l., moving NW with some volcanic ash fanning out and heading NNW, it reported 16:37 UTC.
Volcanic ash to 9.7 km (32 000 feet) a.s.l. continues moving west with a gradual turn toward the WNW-NW, the center said at 19:48 UTC.
The monitoring systems of the Popocatépetl volcano registered 37 exhalations in 24 hours to 15:00 UTC (10:00 LT) on June 3, CENAPRED reported.
Due to the dense cloudiness, they were not always visible, although they were accompanied by water vapor, gas and light amounts of ash.
The first explosion threw ballistic material at a distance of 2 km (1.2 miles) on the southern sector.
Additionally, 194 minutes of tremor were recorded.
Ashfall was expected in the municipalities of Ecatzingo and Atlautla, State of Mexico; Ayala, Cuautla, Jantetelco, Jonacatepec, Ocuituco, Temoac, Tetela, Yecapixtla and Zacualpan, State of Morelos; and Acteopan, Atzizihuacan, Cohuean and Tochimilco, State of Puebla.
