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.

CINCINNATI – After DEA raids last week, 37 people were arrested in a drug sting that resulted in the seizure of 19 pounds of fentanyl, 100 pounds of cocaine, 42 pounds of methamphetamine, dozens of weapons and more, officials said.
The federal indictment alleges that two Cincinnati businesses were used to launder proceeds from the narcotics conspiracy: Tri-State Jewelers and Nationwide Automotive.
Law enforcement agents said thousands of hours of work went into the “large scale” investigation, which began as early as August 2018. According to court documents, confidential sources were used along with GPS tracking of vehicles and wire intercepts of cellphone communications. Agents said covert video surveillance and trash searches were also utilized.
Vyacheslav Minyalo, also known as Slavik, was among those indicted. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, he is the owner of Tri-State Jewelers and vice president of Nationwide Automotive. He incorporated both businesses, according to state documents.
According to the indictment, in September 2018, Minyalo and the managers of each business, Yosi Ilouz and Dewayne Walker, conspired with two co-defendants in Chicago, two co-defendants in Wisconsin and one man in Sinaloa, Mexico, to traffic narcotics.
A total of 22 of those arrested are from the Cincinnati area. In addition to the Chicago, Wisconsin and Mexico suspects, others from California, Atlanta and Las Vegas were indicted.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, between December and April, the defendants stored approximately $2.5 (5×5) million at Tri-State Jewelers.
Officials said at least $800,000 was laundered at Nationwide Automotive between November 2018 and April.
As part the investigation, the government has seized:
More than $500,000 dollars in cash
19 pounds of fentanyl
Three pounds of heroin
100 pounds of cocaine
42 pounds of methamphetamine
The inventory of Tri-State Jewelers
Assorted jewelry belonging to defendants and homes valued at approximately $1.1 million
Four homes were among the seizures.
All of the homes have Derrick Bryant, the owner of a barber and beauty shop, or Golden Homes Investments listed as a current owner. Bryant is also indicted in the case. He is accused of trafficking cocaine.
On Oct. 22, law enforcement intercepted a call from Bryant to another co-defendant. Agents said Bryant told the man to stay away from Cincinnati: “Everyone is getting busted around here and everybody is snitching on everybody,” court documents state.
Officials said the defendants allegedly laundered at least $3.3 (3) million in drug proceeds.
The narcotics conspiracy, in this case, is punishable by a mandatory minimum of 10 (5+5) years up to life in prison. The money laundering conspiracy is punishable by up to 20 (5+5+5+5) years in prison.
