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 hailstorms hit Slovenia, other parts of Europe, causing major damage

Intense hailstorm with hail the size of grapefruits hit parts of Slovenia on June 11, 2019, damaging hundreds of homes and cars. Parts of Germany (Bavaria), Italy, Poland, Romania and Croatia also experienced intense thunderstorms with very large hail and massive hail accumulations this week.
The worst-affected were municipalities Kočevje and Črnomelj, with some damage in and around Ribnica and Sodražica, Total Slovenia reports.
More than 200 buildings were damaged in Stari trg ob Kolpi, Črnomelj alone, and about 130 in Kočevje.
Marko Korosec, a weather adviser for traffic and highways, said hailstones the size of oranges (up to 14 cm / 5.5 inches) caused significant damage to cars and houses, leaving complete destruction in some areas.
“Most of the roofs of houses were completely destroyed, cars as well – all windows and windshields shattered. The biggest I measured was 11 cm [4.3 inches] which was two to three hours after the storm. In that time they would have melted by 2 cm to 3 cm [0.8 – 1.2 inches] so in reality, the hailstones were up to 14 cm [5.5 inches] in diameter.”
Hailstorms hit the region almost exactly one year after the region suffered massive hail damage. Preliminary estimates suggest this year’s damage was not as high.
