Pestilence Update


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.


According to a report from Walla, the swarm is moving swiftly north and may consist of tens of millions of jellyfish.


A swarm of jellyfish measuring hundreds of kilometers is nearing the Israeli coastline, preparing to wreak havoc on beach-goers and surfers enjoying the cool Mediterranean waters and escaping from the heat of the hot Middle Eastern sun.

According to a report from Walla, the swarm is moving
swiftly north and may consist of tens of millions of jellyfish.

Nonetheless, while these marine creatures may sting, swimmers do not need to fear for their lives. 

“There is no need or reason to panic,” said Dr. Dor Adelist, a marine ecologist from the University of Haifa’s Charney School of Maritime Studies, according to Walla. “It’s important to say that science does not know of a single death from a jellyfish sting in the Mediterranean Sea.”  Coast visitors can keep track of the jellyfish on the Israeli website, which is the Hebrew word for jellyfish.

If stung by a jellyfish, use seawater, not fresh water, to clean the affected area. Likewise, despite what the TV sitcom Friends may have led you to believe, human urine also does not effectively clean the area.

While getting stung by these creatures is not fun, jellyfish “have a role” in the marine ecology, explained Adelist. “They clean the sea, they serve as food for a great variety of marine creatures like sea turtles and fish – and the human being can also use them as healthy food – cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and in Israel people are already working on the innovative development of using their liquid to clean micro-plastic waste, for example, in wastewater treatment plants.”“It is reasonable to assume that by the end of July they will be here, and in August they
