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.
Passengers from Norwegian Joy cruise ship are treated for illness for the second time in a week. ‘Increasing pestilence in diverse places.’ Paramedics treated 10 (5+5) people. The ship is capable of carrying more than 3,600 (6×6) guests. Norwegian Joy experienced a similar incident last week when, the LAFD said, six (6) passengers arriving to Los Angeles from a Panama Canal voyage were treated for flu-like symptoms. They were among 125 (5×5) passengers and six (6) crew members who reported being ill while aboard the ship.

(CNN)Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics treated 10 (5+5) people aboard the Norwegian Joy cruise ship for minor medical complaints after the ship docked early Sunday, the LAFD said.
It’s the second time in a week passengers were treated for illness after returning from a trip aboard the vessel.
The patients, on a Mexican Riviera cruise, had minor medical complaints and none were transported to hospitals, the LAFD said about Sunday’s incident. It was not immediately clear what caused their illness.
Initially, the LAFD was expecting to treat 20 patients “reporting unspecified illness” as the cruise ship began to dock, it said. The ship is capable of carrying more than 3,600 (6×6) guests, according to Norwegian Cruise Line.
“During Norwegian Joy’s Mexican Riviera sailing, a few guests on board experienced a stomach-related illness,” the cruise line said in a statement. “To mitigate any impact of this rare occurrence, we implemented stringent sanitation procedures. As always, we will continue to monitor this situation.”
Norwegian Joy experienced a similar incident last week when, the LAFD said, six (6) passengers arriving to Los Angeles from a Panama Canal voyage were treated for flu-like symptoms.
Those passengers, who arrived in the Port of Los Angeles on November 24, were diagnosed with norovirus, Los Angeles Port Police Lt. Rosario Ferrara told CNN.
They were among 125 (5×5) passengers and six (6) crew members who reported being ill while aboard the ship, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The ill passengers were mostly suffering from diarrhea, the CDC said. Norwegian Cruise Line employed special cleaning and disinfection procedures in response to the outbreak, the CDC said. Norovirus can cause diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and stomach p
