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.
Mexico earthquake: Huge 6.3 magnitude quake strikes – ‘seismic waves’ felt in Canada
A HUGE magnitude 6.3 earthquake has hit struck in the Mexican state of Chiapas today according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

The quake struck at 10.27pm local time (4.27am GMT) at an approximate depth of 11km (6.8 miles). Moreover, such was the strength of the earthquake, that John Cassidy, an earthquake seismologist from Vancouver Island said that “Seismic waves from the earthquake off the coast of Mexico are now rolling across Canada.”
According to reports, seismic activity was also felt in El Salvador and Guatemala.
Dr Falh Daim, from the University of New South Wales, tweeted to explain the occurrence of the earthquake.
He said: “Seismic waves from the earthquake off the coast of Mexico are now rolling across Canada.”
Following the earthquake in Mexico, the USGS has also reported a magnitude 6.3 quake in the Sea of Okhotsk between Russia and Japan.
According to the USGS, the quake hit at 6.27pm local time (8.27am GMT).
However, there have been no reports of damage due to the quake hitting a low depth out at sea.
Although Russia is at less risk, both Japan and Mexico straddle the infamous Ring of Fire
