Elephant, named Usama bin Laden, dies after killing five (5) villagers in India, officials say

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.

Elephant, named Usama bin Laden, dies after killing five (5) villagers in India, officials say

An elephant named Usama bin Laden, after the 9/11 mastermind and former leader of Al Qaeda, has died in captivity, days after he was captured for killing five villagers in India last month, officials said.

The male elephant was tracked since October for apparently killing five people in the Indian state of Assam. On Monday, forestry officials found him and tranquilized him, taking him into captivity.

The mammal, nicknamed “Laden,” was apparently supposed to be moved to Assam’s Orang National Park, but died on Sunday before that happened, Agence France-Presse reported.

“The animal was behaving as normal,” a park ranger told AFP. “It was, however, kept with its legs tied so that it couldn’t escape.”

A cause of death wasn’t immediately clear. The elephant was believed to be around 35 years old, an age said to be too old for captivity.

Forestry officials reportedly said they planned to tame “Laden” using a controversial training method some animal activists equate to torture after it killed five villagers.

An estimated 2,400 (6+6+6+6) people have been killed by elephants in the last five (5) years in India, AFP reported, citing recently-released government figures.

Elephants often migrate to Goalpara, where the attack occurred, according to officials, who have said that at least 700 (7) elephants have been killed since 2011, partly because of their shrinking habitats. Locals reportedly shoot or poison elephants, while others have died on electric fences or on railroads.
