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.
NOAA: 12-month precipitation record hits all-time high for the third month in a row, U.S.
Posted by Teo Blašković on July 9, 2019 Watchers.news
Heavy rainfall during the month of June added to another record-breaking 12 months of precipitation for the contiguous U.S – the third consecutive time in 2019 (April, May and June) the past 12-month precipitation record has hit an all-time high.
The June precipitation total for the contiguous U.S. was 83.82 mm (3.30 inches), 9.39 mm (0.37 inch) above average, and ranked in the upper third of the 125-year period of record. For the year-to-date (July 9), the precipitation total was 483.87 mm (19.05 inches), 94.99 mm (3.74 inches) above average, and the wettest such period in the 125-year record.
Average precipitation across the contiguous U.S. for July 2018–June 2019 was 961.64 mm (37.86 inches), 200.66 mm (7.90 inches) above average, and broke a record, exceeding the previous all-time 12-month period on record set at the end of May.
The previous all-time 12-month record was 958.08 mm (37.72 inches) and occurred from June 2018–May 2019.
Prior to that record, the all-time 12-month record was 922.27 mm (36.31 inches) during May 2018–April 2019. The previous July–June record was 891.79 mm (35.11 inches) and occurred from July 1982–June 1983.
Above- to much-above-average precipitation was observed from the Deep South, through the Mississippi and Ohio valleys and along much of the East Coast. Kentucky ranked third wettest, Ohio was fifth wettest and Tennessee ranked eighth wettest for June.
Flooding persisted along many of the major river systems and their tributaries across the central U.S. including the central and lower Mississippi River, the Missouri River, as well as the Illinois River.
As astronomical spring transitioned into summer in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21, an intense low pressure system brought more than a foot of snow to parts of the northern and central Rockies.
Below-average precipitation was observed across six states in the West as well as North and South Dakota.
According to the July 2 U.S. Drought Monitor report, 3.2% of the contiguous U.S. was in drought, down from 5.3% at the beginning of June.
Drought conditions worsened across parts of the Pacific Northwest and Puerto Rico but improved across much of the Southeast, parts of the Southwest, as well as across Hawaii.
