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.
Mount Everest: Four bodies and 12 tons of rubbish removed. Pestilence of pollution, in diverse places. Even on Mt. Everest.
Cleaners spent weeks collecting food wrappings, cans, bottles and empty toxic cylinders
Samuel Osborne. The Independent. June 5, 2019
A clean-up expedition to Mount Everest has removed 12.1 tons (10,976 kg) of rubbish and four dead bodies from the world’s highest mountain.
Cleaners spent weeks collecting food wrappings, cans, bottles and empty toxic cylinders, Nepal Tourism Department official Danduraj Ghimire said.
Mr Ghimire said the four bodies were exposed by melting snow and were carried to base camp and then flown to a hospital in Kathmandu for identification.
Some of the rubbish was flown to Kathmandu and handed over to recyclers on Wednesday.
Officials claimed the mission was a success, but said more rubbish still needed to be collected.
Officials have been unable to estimate exactly how much rubbish covers Everest. Some is covered by snow and only becomes exposed when temperatures rise.
Most of the rubbish on the mountain was at Camps 2 and 3, where climbers can rest along the way from the base camp to the 29,035ft summit.
More than 300 climbers have died on Everest since it was first conquered in 1953.
Climbers struggling to make it down alive are sometimes unable to carry the bodies of teammates who have died.
It is unclear how many bodies remain on the mountain, as officials have no records.
Record numbers tackling the mountain have caused dangerous “traffic jams” on the way to the summit.
So far this season, 11 people have died on Everest.
