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.
Massive floods hit Mexico’s Jalisco, claiming at least 5 lives and damaging 1 000 homes. Videos.

At least 5 people have been killed and around 1 000 homes damaged after massive floods hit the town of San Gabriel, Mexico’s Jalisco state on June 2, 2019. Several people remain missing.
Local authorities said several rivers overflowed, including Apango (San Gabriel) and Salsipuedes, damaging at least 8 bridges and multiple roads. Around 1 000 homes were damaged, electricity and drinking water disrupted.
There is still some speculation as to the exact cause of the disaster as no significant rainfall was recorded in the town during this period, according to the FloodList. However, it is thought that a storm and heavy rain in surrounding mountainous areas caused the Apango river to overflow.
Another element in the disaster is illegal defforestation and wildfires which left mountainsides bare.
After flying over the area, Jalisco Governor Enrique Alfaro Ramírez said that illegal deforestation could have weakened the ground near the riverbed, allowing the river to flood.
“Surely, as people have said, this has to do with the illegal logging that has been going on for many years here in the mountains,” he said. “The ground got soft, and that explains what happened.” Alfaro added that the logging started several years ago and that his government is taking action to end it.
This is the second major flood event to hit Mexico over the past couple of days.
On May 30, the state of San Luis Potosi experienced heavy rain, causing severe flash flooding and significant material damage.
