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.

Severe storms affecting parts of southeastern Europe over the past couple of days intensified on 9 and July 10, producing violent hailstorm over parts of Italy, including Abruzzo, Pescara.
According to ANSA, hail the size of oranges hit Abruzzo on July 10, injuring 18 people including a pregnant woman.
All victims were taken to the town’s emergency room with bruises and other injuries, mainly to the head. All had to have stitches.
The storm also caused considerable damage to cars and homes and caused rail and road disruptions.
Intense hailstorms were also reported in Emilia-Romagna, with severe damage to crops from Piacenza to Rimini.
A significant severe weather outbreak with intense supercells capable of producing extremely severe damaging winds, tornadoes and very large to giant wind-driven hail across SE Italy into S Adriatic sea and S Albania is expected on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, Severe Weather Europe meteorologists warned.
A large trough over ENE Europe will push a sharp short-wave trough across the Balkan peninsula and Italy, providing a large-scale ascent within strong jet stream across the region. Upper low over Iberia moves towards SW. Ridging persists over W Europe while it strengthens over N Europe.
HIGH risk has been issued for SE Italy (Molise and Puglia regions) across the S Adriatic into S Albania and extreme NW Greece with threat for severe storms, capable of producing extremely severe damaging winds, torrential / excessive rainfall, very large to giant hail and tornadoes. A very robust setup is shaping up this afternoon and tonight as extreme instability (3000 to locally near 4000+ J/kg of SBCAPE) with very strong (50-70 knots) deep-layer shear will perfectly overlap together and support discrete long-lived supercells with severe to extremely severe damaging winds and very large hail threat. Strongly enhanced SR helicity along the SE Italian coast will also support tornadoes! Storms will gradually cluster into one or two MCS/MCCs while moves across the risk area towards S Balkans through the evening hours and continue towards E Greece and W Turkey overnight.
