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.
Category 3 Hurricane “Juliette” bearing down on Clarion Island, Mexico
Posted by Teo Blašković on September 3, 2019 Watchers.news
Hurricane “Juliette,” the 10th named storm and 3rd major hurricane of the 2019 Pacific hurricane season, is bearing down on Clarion Island, Mexico. The storm formed September 1 while all eyes were set on Hurricane “Dorian” and quickly intensified into a major hurricane.
At 09:00 UTC on September 3, the center of Juliette was located 40 km (25 miles) SE of Clarion Island, Mexico and 710 km (440 miles) SW of the southern tip of Baja California. Its maximum sustained winds were 195 km/h (120 mph).
The system was moving NW at 15 km/h (9 mph) with minimum central pressure of 963 hPa.
This general motion is expected to continue through Friday, September 6.
Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours, and Juliette could become a category 4 hurricane later today or early Wednesday (MDT).
Thereafter, cold upwelling is expected to begin, which will induce a slow weakening trend on Wednesday. The weakening rate is expected to be tempered by low vertical shear conditions and a very favorable upper-level outflow regime.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 km (25 miles) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 km (125 miles).
A Mexican Navy automated weather station located on Clarion Island recently reported a sustained wind of 91 km/h (57 mph) and a gust to 118 km/h (74 mph).
