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 pains, growing in intensity, frequency, size and duration.
Mumbai hit by worst rains since 2005, at least 27 people killed, India

Exceptionally heavy monsoon rains paralyzed Mumbai overnight July 2, 2019, leaving at least 27 people dead. Heavy rains will continue affecting the city at least through July 5. Residents are advised to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary to leave.
Incessant rains wreaked havoc on Mumbai on July 2, 2019, forcing authorities to declare a public holiday. While schools and colleges will remain closed, many private companies let their employees leave early or offered to work from home.
At least 18 people were killed and 6 others injured when a wall fell down early July 2, 2019, in the Malad area of Mumbai (slums). Two other people died in Malad when after they drove into a flooded underpass. The death toll rose to 27 by afternoon and will probably continue rising.
In 24 hours to 08:00 LT, July 2, the Santacruz weather station, representative of Mumbai suburbs, recorded 375.2 mm (14.7 inches) of rain, according to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).
This is the highest July rain in a single day the city has received in a decade and also the second heaviest 24-hour period in the month of July, after a massive deluge on July 26, 2005, caused by 944 mm (37.1 inches) of rain.
Services on Central and Western railway routes resume slowly amid heavy rainfall. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation answered about 1 000 calls made by the residents of Mumbai seeking assistance.
Weather authorities warned Mumbaikars heavy rain will continue through at least July 5. Private weather agency Skymet said the city is at “serious risk of flooding” with “close to 200 mm (7.8 inches) or more rain per day likely during this period.”
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has advised people to stay indoors unless there is an emergency.
