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.
Major explosion at Stromboli volcano, Aviation Color Code Red, Italy. Videos.

A major paroxysmal eruption took place at Stromboli volcano, Italy at around 10:17 UTC on August 28, 2019.
The explosion has affected the central-southern area of the crater terrace, INGV said. The products generated by the explosion spread throughout the terrace and along the Sciara del Fuoco, rolling to reach the coastline. The phenomenon in question is also visible on the seismic track.
The Aviation Color Code has been raised to Red.
“For the moment it is highly unlikely that there will be excursions onto the summit of Stromboli anytime soon. The whole handling of tourism on this volcano will certainly be thoroughly reviewed. With explosions like those of July 3and today, there would have been no chance of survival for anybody at the summit,” INGV’s Boris Behncke said.
INGV reported that Stromboli’s crater terrace activity was analyzed during August 5 – 11 through webcam views, and field inspections during August 7 – 8. At least nine vents in Area N (north crater area, NCA) were active on August 7, three of which had well-formed spatter cones, with Strombolian activity ejecting material 150 m (492 feet) high.
A large scoria cone in Area C-S (South Central crater area) jetted material 200 m (656 feet) high. Lava from Area C-S vents continued to travel down the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco, reaching 500 – 600 m (1 640 – 1 968 feet) elevation.
At least two powerful explosions took place at Stromboli volcano, Italy on July 3, 2019, killing one person.
The sequence was preceded by lava spills from all active mouths at 14:44 UTC. A strong intensity explosion took place at 15:16 UTC, producing an ash column up to 2 km (1.2 miles) above the summit, dispersing in a SW direction.
This is certainly the strongest explosion at Stromboli since March 2007, Behncke said at the time.
