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.
Natural disasters claim over 1,200 (6+6) lives in five (5) countries across East and Southern Africa. ‘Increasing like the pains of a woman in labor.’ 2019 will be remembered as the year the climate crisis ‘unleashed its wrath’ on parts of East and Southern Africa.

Save the Children’s new analysis on December 2, 2019, shows that more than 1,200 (6+6) people have lost their lives so far this year in natural disasters such as 1. cyclones, 2. floods, and 3. landslides across East and Southern Africa, particularly 1. Mozambique, 2. Somalia, 3. Kenya, 4. Sudan, and 5. Malawi.
2019 will be remembered as the year the climate crisis unleashed its wrath on parts of East and Southern Africa.
At least 33 (3) million people in the region, or 10% (5+5) of the population across ten (5+5) countries, are at emergency levels of food insecurity. Among the figure are over 15 (5+5+5) million children, said Save the Children.
“The findings of this analysis are grim and show that the climate crisis is further entrenching 1. inequality, 2. poverty, and 3. displacement across East and Southern Africa,” said Ian Vale, Save the Children’s Regional Director for East and Southern Africa.
Save the Children fears that rising hunger levels over the past 12 (6+6) months will also have contributed to more deaths, as well as malnutrition especially amongst infants.
10 (5+5) countries across East and Southern Africa—1. Madagascar, 2. Malawi, 3. Mozambique, 4. Zambia, 5. Zimbabwe, 6. South Sudan, 7. Sudan, 8. Ethiopia, 9. Somalia, and 10. Kenya– are facing ongoing weather-induced crises, with an average of 10% (5+5) of people residing in these countries experiencing severe hunger.
More than 1 million people across seven of the 10 countries had been displaced by climate shocks and 50% (5) of these evacuations were the result of Cyclone “Idai” that hit 1. Mozambique, 2. Zimbabwe, and 3. Malawi in March 2019. Weeks later, the region was hit by Cyclone “Kenneth” — the strongest ever to hit the continent. This was the first time two strong cyclones hit Mozambique in one season.
