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.
Powerful hailstorm hits capital Madrid, turning roads into raging rivers, Spain. Amazing Videos.

A powerful hailstorm hit Spain’s capital Madrid (population 3.2 million) late Monday, August 26, 2019, sweeping away cars, bringing traffic to a standstill and causing flight diversions.
The worst-hit municipality was Arganda del Rey, southeast of the capital, where flash floods turned roads into raging rivers, sweeping away cars. Other areas most affected by the storm include Valdemoro, Pinto, Rivas, Getafe, Fuenlabrada and Madrid city.
“Trying to stabilize the situation and give an account of urgent requirements. The flash flood has been terrible. All services are working at full capacity to normalize [the situation]. Be alert to instructions,” Arganda del Rey mayor said.
Firefighters said they responded to more than 1 000 calls, most of them for minor issues such as fallen tree branches or flooding in garages and basements, El Pais reports.
AEMET said they recorded more than 9 300 lightning strikes in 6 hours.
The extreme weather event lasted approximately 20 minutes.
Meteorologist Benito Fuentes said strong storms such as these are common in August. “At the end of summer, the atmosphere is unstable, which causes air to rise for dynamic reasons, not thermal ones.”
