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.

A shocking scenario unfolded in several remote Russian villages this week, prompting officials to launch an investigation into the mystery. Hundreds of thousands of flies descended onto villages across the Ural mountain region of Russia this week. The vast swarms have sparked panic among villages, amid fears that the flies could spread disease to the human inhabitants.
Bizarre images from the region showed thick clouds of flies crawling and buzzing through the village.
Residents described the local scene as “a horror film” and a “biblical plague”.
Another local, who was sweeping up dead flies from his floor, told reporters: “Every day or two there’s enough to fill a bucket, half a bucket.”
A woman with a child said: “It’s unbearable, the flies are everywhere.
“I’m afraid for my children. We need to poison the flies constantly with chemicals, but then we all have to breath that air. It’s frightening.”
Russian officials have launched an investigation into the influx of flies, as they try to solve and put an end to the horror.
Residents of the village have been trapped in their houses since the invasion began.
Several locals blamed farmers for the plague, claiming they had used tonnes of chicken droppings from a local poultry farm as fertiliser, in which flies laid millions of eggs.
Investigators confirmed they had opened a criminal investigation into the unsanctioned use of “environmentally hazardous waste”.
