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.
Tornado destroys up to 20 000 maple trees in Quebec, loss of revenue. Total devastation, five generations of maple products.

Between 15 000 to 20 000 maple trees were snapped by a powerful tornado that pummelled through the town of Sainte-Rose-de-Watford in the Chaudiere-Appalaches region, Quebec, on September 4, 2019.
More than 4 500 of those trees were grown by maple tree producer and Ferme Jany co-owner, Richard Fleury. His great-grandparents were the first to tend to the farm’s maple trees, beginning the family tradition that produced five generations of maple producers.
Fleury described the outcome as a “total desolation.” Furthermore, he said that the loss of revenue is equivalent to 60 to 100 years.
“It will take two to three generations before it goes back to what it was,” Fleury added. “Several thousands of hours of work went into all that.”
Mayor Hector Provencal assessed the damage and said that estimated losses are between 135 000 and 155 000 dollars a year.
According to Environment Canada, the storm came without a warning. One of the many other thunderstorms that moved through the southern region of Quebec spawned an EF1-category tornado, a scale with estimated wind speeds between 117 km/h to 180 km/h (73 mph to 112 mph).
“Analysis of satellite imagery clearly shows a ground track corresponding to that of a tornado having traveled 3.5 kilometers (2 miles) with a width of 200 to 300 meters, (656 to 984 feet),” the organization said.
Provencal also assured that Quebec’s Public Security Ministry will inspect the affected areas.
