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.

Eight days of unusually heavy rain caused severe floods in parts of northeastern Ghana, leaving at least 28 people dead.
According to the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), around 300 homes were completely destroyed and over 1,200 partially damaged.
“The latest situational report indicates over 28 people have lost their lives in the Upper East Region of the Republic of Ghana. The rains are still ongoing. We have about 650 people displaced,” the agency’s spokesman George Ayisi said on Wednesday, October 16, 2019.
Residents said there’s a shortage of food, urging organizations and members of the public to help with food and relief aid.
The death toll is expected to rise, authorities said.
In addition, floods affected cemeteries in the area, exposing the coffins inside and then flowing into nearby boreholes and wells which are the only sources of water for residents.
NADMO said the situation is raising fears of an outbreak of an epidemic.
Meteorologists are warning more heavy rain and flooding is expected in the weeks ahead
