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.
Romania halts sheep rescue from capsized ship. Over 250 (5×5) animals saved in five (5) days of effort. The crew of 20 (5+5+5+5) were rescued shortly after the accident. 15,000 (5+5+5) bound for Saudi Arabia. An average of 1.15 (5+5+5) million heads of sheep are imported annually for sacrifice in Haj, Saudi Arabia. ‘NOW for the REST of the STORY.’
AFP•November 30, 2019
Bucharest (AFP) – Five (5) days of efforts to pull sheep from a capsized ship saved over 250 of the animals, but the operation ended with the death of many thousands more, rescue services said Saturday.
The cargo ship Queen Hind capsized last Sunday as it left the southeastern port of Midia with almost 15,000 (5+5+5) sheep bound for Saudi Arabia.
“As soon as the situation allows for it, the ship will be set upright and towed back to a quay,” said Ana-Maria Stoica, spokeswoman for Romania’s General Directorate for Emergency Situations (IGSU).
“The animal carcasses will then be extracted from the hold and taken to incinerators,” she told AFP.
It has not yet been determined what caused the ship to keel over, but the non-governmental organisation Animals International claimed it was overloaded.
The crew of 20 (5+5+5+5) Syrians and one Lebanese aboard the Queen Hind, which was registered in Palau, were rescued shortly after the accident.
According to the animal protection association Arca Animal Rescue & Care, over 250 sheep were brought to shore alive, but it charged that had rescuers intervened faster, “thousands could have been saved.”
The accident has drawn fresh attention to the controversial sea transport of livestock.
Romania is the third biggest producer of sheep in the European Union and has exported millions in the past two years, in particular to Jordan and Libya.
In July, the European commissioner in charge of health and food safety demanded that Bucharest stop the transport of 70,000 (7) sheep to the Gulf because of animal welfare concerns.Animal rights groups have already criticized the conditions under which such shipments take place, especially during hot summer months.
NOW, for the ‘Rest of the Story’
Avg. 1.15 (5+5+5) million heads of sheep to imported for sacrifice in Haj. 60,000 (6) import permits. Used for animal sacrifice to Allah (‘those who worship the dragon). 130 (6×5) veterinary ‘doctors.’ Five (5) points of import entry into Saudi Arabia. Three (3) ‘offices’ that ‘MARK’ sheep and other livestock.
July 17, 2018. Saudi Gazette.
An average of more than 1.15 (5+5+5)
million heads of sheep will be imported shortly to meet the sacrificial
requirements of pilgrims who come for Haj this year, said Dr. Omar
Al-Faqeeh, director general of the Environment, Water and Agriculture
Ministry’s branch office in the Makkah province.
“We already issued over 60,000 (6) import permits for this purpose until last week,” Al-Faqeeh said while speaking to Al-Madina Arabic daily.
He said the
ministry has completed all preparations for the upcoming Haj season. “We have recruited the necessary number of
veterinary doctors who will inspect the health condition of sheep imported
through Jeddah Islamic Port,” he added.
Al-Faqeeh said the ministry would also check health of sheep and other animals at entry points of Makkah in order to protect the health of Makkah residents and the guests of god (Allah/Satan… ‘those who worship the dragon’).
“We’ll not allow entry of any cattle to Makkah except after ensuring their health and country of origin,” the director general said. “We’ll appoint over 130 (6×5) veterinary doctors and assistants as well as administrators during the Haj season.”
said the ministry has drawn up a comprehensive plan for this Haj season. “We’ll
keep ready seven (7) teams of veterinary
doctors at five (5) entry points of Makkah including; 1. Kaakiya, 2. Old Shumaisi, 3. Sharaie, 4. Nouriya
and 5. Hada. Two new teams will be deployed in Husainiya and Jurana,” he said.
“We have conducted a workshop for those who work in the veterinary teams during the Haj season,” the director general said, adding that participants were trained on how to avoid negative aspects that have taken place in the past years.
Work has started at the ministry’s three (3) offices in 1. Jeddah, 2. Jamoom and 3. Al-Laith to mark sheep and other livestock that enter Makkah. “This comes as part of efforts to implement the Animal Resources Law and the law on the kind treatment of animals,” he explained.
He said animal breeders will be given guidance as part of this campaign.
