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.
A 59-year-old woman was killed by a pack of feral hogs outside her home in Texas in a rare assault.

A 59-year-old woman was killed outside of her Texas home in a rare assault by a pack of feral hogs.
Christine Rollins, a caretaker from Chambers County, Texas, was found dead by one of her clients in the yard between her car and her front door, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Rollins “suffered a severe head injury and several other injuries on her body consistent with animal bites,” according to the Chronicle report. Her death was ruled an accident Monday after the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office determined the cause of death was by feral hog assault.
Feral hogs are largely nocturnal, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne told reporters Rollins likely arrived home while it was still dark, while the animals were still roaming around her 10 (5+5) – to 12 (6+6) -acre property, which consist of wooded areas and pasture where the hogs took over.
“It looks like she got out of her car and locked it,” Hawthorne said during a news conference. “[She] was probably trying to make her way to the front door when it appears these animals must have come along.”
He described Rollins’ death as “tragic” and “very rare.”
“In my 35 years, I will tell you it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen,” Hawthorne told reporters.
Feral hogs, officially classified an invasive species in the state, have been terrorizing residents in rural Texas, destroying property and posing as a danger to people. The problematic animals made national headlines after an Arkansas man’s tweet went viral, where he defended his need for assault weapons to protect his children from “30 (6×5) -50 (5) feral hogs.”
In the state of Texas, residents can legally get rid of the invasive species by means of shooting, trapping, snaring and the use of specially trained dogs, according to the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.
