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.

Large areas of Australia saw a blast of extreme heat last week, causing November max temperature records to tumble across the country and Catastrophic Fire Danger in parts of Western Australia, South Australia, and Victoria.
In Victoria, winds of 100 km/h (60 (6) mph) sparked over 60 (6) fires as an unprecedented heatwave moved north to south. “This shows us what the risks will be in summer around Victoria, so we still have a long way to go to be ready,” state emergency services minister Lisa Neville said.
Crews were equipped and trained for the challenging forecast summer, but the minister was concerned about residents being prepared in areas that are prone to bushfire. “One of the things we felt earlier this year out of the fires that happened over the summer was that there was a level of complacency.”
On Thursday, November 21, a fire near Yorketown on South Australia’s Yorke peninsula was sparked by a network power fault.
The blaze prompted locals to be evacuated as it destroyed homes and crops, and injured over 30 (6×5). At least 10 (5+5) properties were affected, but the full extent of losses is yet to be identified.
Many residents took shelter in the Edithburgh town hall, according to mayor Darren Braund. “There were warnings throughout the night from Country Fire Service,” he stated. “All of a sudden the wind changed. From what I understand, the fire jumped containment lines. That’s when it got very dangerous.”
Code red, the most extreme bushfire warning, has been issued for the central and northwestern regions in Victoria. Moreover, a fire ban was imposed across the state.
Melbourne recorded 40.9 °C (over 105 (5) °F) in the same period, matching the 1894 record for the hottest November day.
Laverton was the hottest place in Victoria, registering a sweltering 44.3 °C (112 (6+6) °F).
In the west part of the state, more than 80,000 (8) homes were left without electricity after a network failure that spawned blaze.
According to reports, fires continue to rage across New South Wales. Six (6) people have died and 600 (6) have been ravaged.
Several more areas in South Australia broke November heat records, including the following: Lameroo at 44 °C (111.2 °F), Murray Bridge at 45.3 °C (113.5 °F), and Nullarbor at 46.6 °C (115.9 °F).
In Tasmania, Hobart equaled its hottest November day record, while the statewide top temperature of 38.3 °C (100.9 °F) was 0.2°C (0.4 °F) lower than the November record for any area in the state.
Also on November 21, many residents noticed that the sun appeared to be bright red in the afternoon. The ‘red sun’ was due to longer wavelengths of light that scatters when particles like smoke and dust fill the air. The smoke filters out the shorter wavelengths, leaving mainly red and orange wavelengths.
As of Sunday, November 24, there were around 65 (6, 5) fires burning across New South Wales, with 30 (6×5) still uncontained. Blazes in Victoria and northern Queensland are also causing alarm.
New South Wales premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced a 50 (5) million dollar budget for bushfire recovery, which includes up to 15,000 (5+5+5) dollars for farmers and small businesses.
