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, duration and scope.
2019 North Indian Ocean cyclone season breaks named storm days record
Posted by Julie Celestial on November 4, 2019 Watchers.news
The Arabian Sea witnessed a rare simultaneous formation of two tropical cyclones – Kyarr on October 24 and Maha on October 30, 2019, the first since 1965. With them, the 2019 North Indian Ocean cyclone season has generated 28 named storm days by November 4, breaking the old record of 21 days through November 4 set in 1996.
On Thursday, October 31, IMD confirmed that this was the first recorded case of two cyclones happening simultaneously in the Arabian Sea.
In its weekly weather status and outlook report, the agency stated that India received 200% excess rainfall in the week, ending on October 30. Central India registered the maximum departure with 572% excess rainfall in the past week.
For the overall rainfall in October, India received 44% excess rainfall, while the central received 99% excess and 54% for southern regions.
Tropical Cyclone “Kyarr” formed on October 24 and underwent rapid intensification, soon becoming the Arabian Sea’s 2nd strongest storm on record. It peaked on Sunday, October 27 west of India as a category 4 storm with 240 km/h winds (150 mph) – Super Cyclonic Storm, the first since 2007’s category 5 Tropical Cyclone “Gonu.”
The system began slowly weakening on October 29 as it headed southwest toward Somalia. It dissipated off the coast of Somalia on November 1.
Tropical Cyclone “Maha” formed on October 30. It strengthened into a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm on November 3 and into Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm on November 4.
On November 3, Maha reached Category 3+ hurricane equivalent, the third of the season to date, tying the year with 1999 for the most North Indian Ocean major hurricane through November 3 since records began in 1972, according to meteorologist Philip Klotzbach.
As of November 4, the 2019 North Indian Ocean has already generated 28 named storm days, shattering the old record of 21 days through November 4 set in 1996, Klotzbach said.
The season has so far had 5 Severe Cyclonic Storms, a record high, and 2 Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storms. It had 1 Super Cyclonic Storm, also a record high, but tied with 1989, 1990, 1991, 1999 and 2007.
The basin’s first named storm was Pabuk on January 4, making it the earliest-forming cyclonic storm in a season, surpassing Hibaru in 2005.
