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.
Strong tornado hits Bochold, Germany, causing significant damage

Authorities suspect a tornado hit the city of Bocholt, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany late June 4, 2019, causing significant damage. Another round of severe thunderstorms is expected today.
Severe thunderstorms swept over parts of France, Benelux and Germany on June 4, bringing wind gusts in excess of 100 km/h (62 mph).
At this point, the worst affected appears to be the city of Bocholt where a suspected tornado touched down late June 4, overturning at least one car and damaging others, uprooting about 100 trees and damaging at least 9 houses. One person was slightly injured, the city spokesman said.
Although some experts and news portals are already reporting an EF-2 tornado, the German Weather Service (DWD) is still analyzing the data.
Strong and destructive tornadoes are not unusual in this part of Germany.
Another round of severe thunderstorms is expected to hit the region Wednesday night, June 5.
Severe Weather Europe meteorologists issued Moderate and Enhanced risks for ENE France, E Benelux into W Germany with threat for severe storms, capable of producing severe winds, large to very large hail, torrential rainfall with flash floods and tornadoes, valid June 6.
Widespread convective storms are expected within the strongly unstable and moderately sheared environment ahead of the front. Similar to a day before, scattered supercell storms initiation is likely during the mid-afternoon hours. A favorable LL shear and helicity should again develop threat for tornadic storms as well. Storms will likely merge into clusters with bowing segments towards the evening hours while spreading NNE-wards.
