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.
Rare 4.0 Earthquake rocks and rolls Cleveland, Ohio area, overwhelms Eastlake’s emergency dispatch system. US.
John Bacon USA TODAY•June 10, 2019
A magnitude 4.0 earthquake centered 20 miles northeast of Cleveland rattled some buildings in the area and overwhelmed one small city’s emergency communications system.
It was not immediately clear what if any damage was caused by the quake. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck at 10:50 a.m. and was centered a couple miles north-northwest of Eastlake, Ohio, a city of about 20,000 on Lake Erie.
“Please do not call dispatch unless it’s an emergency,” Eastlake Mayor Dennis Morley said in a Facebook post. “They are overwhelmed with calls. It was a 4.0 magnitude earthquake and safety forces are working to help where needed.”
The Perry Nuclear Plant, about 20 miles northeast of the Eastlake, said the plant appeared to be unaffected by the temblor.
“Workers are conducting a comprehensive visual inspection to assure there is no change in the condition of plant equipment,” plant managers said in a statement.
The state Transportation Department shared some very shaky video from its highway cameras.
“Did you feel that rumble this morning Cleveland?” the department tweeted. “Well if you missed it, we caught this morning’s earthquake on multiple #OHGO cameras. Check it out!”
The quake caught the attention of many on social media.
“I live on a busy road & heard a rumble,” Amy Marie posted on Twitter. “Thought it was just a big rig with a heavy load tumbling down the street. Then my walls and pipes made a groan and pop, then every item of clothing in my closet swayed wildly and fast!”
Hope had this to say: “Changing my Tinder bio to “looking for a man who can rock my world like the 4.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Cleveland”
