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.
Passenger stung by scorpion which fell out of her trousers during United Airlines flight
Peter Stubley. The Independent•December 8, 2019
The passenger was attacked by the eight-legged arachnid while travelling from San Francisco to Atlanta.
She told the TMZ website she started to feel a stinging sensation on her leg after the plane took off on Thursday morning.
When she went to the toilet to investigate the pain, a scorpion fell out of her trousers and scurried away.
The passenger was taken to hospital after landing but is expected to make a full recovery.
The arachnid, meanwhile, was captured by flight attendants and put in a box. No further details were given about its condition.
United Airlines said in a statement: “After learning that one of our customers on flight 1554 from San Francisco to Atlanta was stung during flight, our crew responded immediately and consulted with a MedLink physician on the ground who provided medical guidance.
“Upon landing in Atlanta, the flight was met by medical personnel and the customer was transported to a local hospital.
“We have been in contact with our customer to ensure her wellbeing.”
Earlier this year a large scorpion was seen crawling out of the overhead lockers on a Lion Air flight in Indonesia.
And two years ago another United Airlines passenger told how he was stung by a scorpion on a flight from Houston in Texas to Calgary in Canada. Passenger Richard Bell said the arachnid fell from the overhead luggage rack onto his head.
