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
… 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.

Two tornadoes produced by a severe thunderstorm ripped through Ranking County, Mississippi on November 27, 2019, knocking down trees and powerlines. County Sheriff Bryan Bailey described the storm system as the fastest he has ever seen.
According to meteorologist Stephen Bowers, the Star tornado in Rankin County was classified as EF-2 with peak winds of 193 km/h (120 mph), which formed 23:57 LT (05:57 UTC) and ended 00:13 LT (06:13 UTC). The twister ended about 11 km (7 miles) north of Braxton.
Several homes received partial or major damage, while many trees were uprooted. No injuries were reported. At one point, hundreds of residents were without power after strong winds impacted electricity lines.
Meanwhile, the Polkville tornado in Smith County was classified as EF-1 packing 153 km/h (95 mph), which developed 00:26 LT (06:13 UTC) and lasted until 00:36 LT (06:36). The twister dissipated about 3 km (2 miles) south-southeast of the town.
“We walked out into the living room and the French doors blew open and the surge of wind knocked us down,” a resident named Jacob Knight said.
Other residents named Jerry and Lynda Glass reside at Estrella Heights in Star where the tornado touched down. “We started to hear what sounded like hail but it turned out to be debris hitting the home,” Jerry Glass said.
After the storm, the Glasses said their home had no structural damage but the motor home in their driveway “was totally destroyed.”
“We had a ton of trees, about 300 of them. There’s not a single tree standing,” they added.
82-year-old longtime resident Emmet Clark said his house survived but his shed did not. “I couldn’t believe it. I’m glad my house was okay but I feel for everybody else in the neighborhood.”
“We drove down all the roads in the path of the storm and there were some trees down but it was minimal damage overall,” said Heather Easterly, Smith County emergency management director.
On the other hand, Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey described the storm system as the fastest he has ever seen.
The tornadoes were part of a system in the Midwest that brought snow on one side and severe weather on the other.
