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.

Gulf Business. June 11, 2019
Kuwait has recorded the world’s highest temperature in the last 24 hours, with the northern region of Mitribah seeing highs of 51.4 degree celsius on Tuesday, according to world weather website El Dorado.
While Kuwaiti media reports quoted a Saudi astronomer as stating that the temperature hit 52.2 degree in Mitribah on Saturday, the data from El Dorado found Tuesday’s temperature to be the highest so far.
Four other regions from Kuwait also featured among the 15 regions worldwide with the highest temperatures including Sulaibiya (50.9 degrees) coming second, Jahra (50 degrees) in the sixth place, Abdaly (49.6 degrees) in the ninth position, Kuwait International airport (49.5 degrees) in the 12th spot.
Mitribah currently holds the joint record for the highest-ever recorded temperature on earth at 54 degrees celsius recorded on July 21, 2016.
The country is currently studying a draft law that will permit government departments in charge of public work to operate in the evening hours due to the soaring temperatures, Kuwaiti media reported.
MP Faisal Al Kandari submitted the draft legislation earlier this week, which recommends that government offices, especially those dealing with the public, must work from 5pm to 10pm in the summer months.
It also states that evening timings should be place from June 1 until the end of August, when temperature reach around 50 degrees celsius in the country.
The bill has to be passed by the National Assembly and the government to become a law, Kuwait Timesreported.
