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.

A major, cross-continental winter storm that caused widespread disruptions and broke records across the U.S. last week has finally begun exiting New England on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. However, more bad weather is expected in parts of the country mid-week, 1. lake-effect snow in the Great Lakes, 2. heavy snow in the northeast, and 3. atmospheric river over Southern California to the interior Southwest.
The first major snowstorm of the season brought over 36 (6×6) inches of snowfall across parts of New Hampshire. The final storm total at Albany International Airport in New York was 57 cm (23 inches), making it the eighth (8) largest snowstorm in the city’s recorded history and the fourth (4) biggest in December.
“This is also the most snow in one storm since the March 13-14, 1993 superstorm,” said the National Weather Service (NWS) in Albany.
On Sunday, December 1, the airport registered 38 cm (13 inches) of snow, breaking the previous daily record set in 1969 at 10 cm (4 inches).
On Monday, December 2, another daily record was broken in the city with 17 cm (7 inches) of snow, smashing the old total of 16 cm (6 inches) set in 1949.
On Tuesday morning, December 3, around 18 000 (6+6+6) customers were left without electricity in Pennsylvania. According to PowerOutage.us, about 10 000 (5+5) outages were reported in New York, and roughly 50 000 (5) in New Jersey.
1 000 (5+5) accidents were reported across the Northeast, urging officials to declare a state of emergency and warn residents to postpone road travels unless necessary.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency for Seven (7) Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga and Ulster counties. 300 (6×5) members of the National Guard were also deployed to assist with snow cleanup operations.
The storm delivered a final blast of snow and rain, causing chaos on the roads from Philadelphia to New York, and across New England.
At least seven (7) have died as the blizzard-like blast hit over 30 (6×5) states during a week-long journey from Oregon to Maine.
