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
… 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.
Heavy snowfall hits parts of Austria and Italy, large avalanche engulfs Martell Valley

Extreme weather, including strong winds, heavy rain and snow are affecting parts of central Europe, including Austria, Switzerland and Italy over the past couple of days, causing floods, landslides and notable avalanches. Similar weather, with widespread heavy rain and snow, extreme in places, is expected to continue affecting the continent at least over the next 2 weeks.
One person died after a landslide in Bad Kleinkirchheim, Carinthia Land, central-southern Austria, while 2 other people have been injured by a mudslide event near Salzburg, DG ECHO reports.
Several landslides have been reported Drautal, Carinthia Land and Gegendtal, central Austria. Some households are still cut off from electric power supply.
Heavy snowfall has also triggered avalanches in South Tyrol, Italy, leaving many valleys inaccessible, but the situation at the time is going back to normal.
A large avalanche came hurtling across a street in the town of Martell Valley on November 17. The event was captured on a video by a resident, as the huge slab of snow rolled, carrying trunks, branches, and other debris.
“We got evacuated because it’s possible that there will arrive some more. All the streets in our valley are closed now,” said Christian Gruschler, the local who took the footage.
The avalanche warning service showed the South Tyrol area in red, which means “numerous large and, in many cases, very large natural avalanches are to be expected as the precipitation becomes more intense.”
Gurschler said rescue teams and volunteers from Martell Valley came and assessed the situation
