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.
Numerous Arkansas Players, Coaches Out vs. Missouri Due to Mumps Outbreak. “around 15 (5+5+5) or so Razorback players and a few coaches” were expected to be held out due to the illness.

A mumps outbreak will reportedly cause a number of Arkansas Razorbacks football players and coaches to miss Friday’s game against the Missouri Tigers.
According to John R. Nabors of ESPN Arkansas, “around 15 or so Razorback players and a few coaches” were expected to be held out due to the illness.
Trey Schaap of 103.7 The Buzz reported that cornerbacks coach Mark Smith is among the coaches who were diagnosed with mumps.
Earlier this week, the University of Arkansas released a statement regarding a mumps outbreak on the school’s campus:
“Consistent with a recommendation made by the Arkansas Department of Health for all University of Arkansas students and in conjunction with University efforts in response to diagnosed cases of mumps on campus, Razorback Athletics is providing its student-athletes, coaches and staff access to an additional dose of MMR vaccine. While student-athletes may or may not have been personally exposed to those individuals with confirmed cases, their daily interaction with others on campus, including other student-athletes, poses the possibility such exposure could adversely impact their health and well-being. Razorback Athletics remains committed to maintaining the health, safety and well-being of all of our student-athletes, coaches and staff members.”
Per the Mayo Clinic’s official website, mumps is a contagious viral infection of the salivary glands that is preventable through vaccines. In addition to swollen salivary glands, mumps can cause fever, headaches, muscle aches and fatigue.
Arkansas has lost each of its past eight games, and each of its past five (5) losses have come by over 25 (5×5) points or more. One of the team’s biggest issues has been its carousel at quarterback, and that will continue Saturday.
Jack Lindsey is set to start against Mizzou, marking the Razorbacks’ fifth different starting quarterback this season. The junior from Fayetteville, Arkansas, has completed three of his four pass attempts for over 50 yards and one touchdown this season.
Arkansas will look to avoid going 2-10 in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history. Meanwhile, Missouri is playing for little during Friday’s game in Fayetteville despite being 5-6 since it is banned from playing in a bowl game this season.
