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.
Tropical Cyclone “Lingling” forms in the Western Pacific Ocean, heading toward the Korean Peninsula

Tropical Cyclone “Lingling,” known as Liwayway in the Philippines, formed September 1 in the Western Pacific Ocean as the 14th named tropical cyclone of the 2019 Pacific typhoon season. The storm is heading toward southern Ryukyu Islands, Japan and the Korean Peninsula. The Pacific Ocean will remain very active in the days and weeks ahead. Make sure you check updated numerical model predictions at the end of the report.
At 14:00 UTC (22:00 PHT), the center of Typhoon “Lingling,” called Liwayway in the Philippines, was located at around 470 km (292 miles) NE of Basco, Batanes, Philippines. It had maximum sustained winds near 140 km/h (87 mph) and gusts to 170 km/h (105 mph).
The typhoon maintains its strength as it moves toward southern Ryukyu Islands, Japan, PAGASA said 14:00 UTC.
Occasional gusty conditions may still occur in Batanes, Babuyan Islands, Ilocos Region and Cordillera Administrative Region due to the Southwest Monsoon, it added.
Between today and tomorrow (September 6) evening, Lingling (Liwayway) will bring light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains over Batanes and Babuyan Islands. The Southwest Monsoon will also bring scattered light to moderate rains (with at times heavy rain showers during thunderstorms) over Ilocos Region and Cordillera Administrative Region.
Between tomorrow evening and Friday (September 6) evening, the trough of Lingling and the Southwest Monsoon will bring light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains over Batanes, Babuyan Islands, and Ilocos Provinces.
Residents of the aforementioned areas, especially those living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to floods and rain-induced landslides, are advised to take precautionary measures, coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices, and continue monitoring for updates, especially the Thunderstorm / Rainfall Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings to be issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions.
Sea travel is risky, especially for those using small seacrafts, over the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the western seaboard of Central Luzon due to potentially rough sea conditions.
The typhoon is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility between tomorrow afternoon and evening, cross the southern Ryukyu Islands, Japan and head toward the Korean Peninsula.
