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 pains, growing in intensity, frequency, size and duration.
Colorado’s snowpack explodes to 4,121 percent above normal after unexpected heavy summer snow
Posted by Teo Blašković on June 24, 2019. Watchers.news
Snow began falling above 2 100 m (7 000 feet) just west of Denver, Colorado on Friday, June 21, 2019, accumulating to nearly 51 cm (20 inches) over the weekend and boosting the state’s snowpack to extraordinary levels for the time of year.
Although the state’s snowpack was off the charts – 751% above normal – even before heavy snowfall on the first day of summer, the event was just a continuation of the extra snowy year since January.
When we add all the snow that fell on June 21, the state’s snowpack exploded to 4 121 percent above normal.
Steamboat was one of the places that received 51 cm (20 inches) of snow on June 21, making it the first measurable snow this late in season since June 17, 1928.
Steamboat averages 2.5 mm (0.1 inches) of snow in June and normally sees its last day of snow around May 6, making the June 21st snow very rare.
High country west of Denver now resembles mid-winter, with enough snow at ski areas to keep them open into July and possibly August.
Just two months ago, more than half of the state was in drought but with all the snow and precipitation since January the drought has now ended.
At the same time, elevated snowpack and runoff are expected to lower Colorado’s wildfire risk through the summer.
