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.

Met Eireann issued Orange and Yellow weather warnings as Storm Atiyah is set to strike the country on Sunday, December 8, 2019. The Met Office has warned that 1. massive waves, 2. travel and 3. power disruptions, 4. flooding, and 5. damages to properties are likely. Atiyah is the first named storm of the 2019/20 season.

Southwesterly winds swerving northwesterly will reach average speeds of 65 to 80 km/h (40 to 50 mph), with gusts between 110 to 130 km/h (68 to 81 mph).

The eight areas under an orange warning are Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry, and Limerick, beginning at 09:00 UTC on Sunday. An Orange warning means infrequent and dangerous weather conditions may pose a threat to life and property. 

A yellow status or wind advisory will also be in place for 1. Leinster, 2. Cavan, 3. Monaghan, 4. Roscommon, 5. Cork, 6. Tipperary, and 7. Waterford, effective Sunday 15:00 UTC until Monday 06:00 UTC.

Atiyah will move from west to east through the latter part of Sunday and overnight into Monday, the UK Met Office said.

A Yellow national severe weather warning for wind has been issued for the south west of England and the west coast of Wales. The warning comes in to force at 15:00 Sunday afternoon and runs through to 09:00 Monday morning (LT).

“The UK is in for an unsettled period of weather with some very strong winds, especially along the west coast. Gusts of 80 – 100 km/h (50 (5) – 60 (6) mph) are expected quite widely inland, with up to 112 km/h (70 mph) gusts around some coastal locations,” Deputy Chief Meteorologist Tony Wardle said.

“As well as strong winds there will be large coastal waves in the south west, so bare this in mind before heading out in these regions. Monday will be a much-improved day with brighter and drier conditions moving in from the west before another period of wet and windy weather on Tuesday.”

The strong winds will also impact western parts of Northern Ireland and Scotland, with gusts of up to 92 km/h (57 mph) overnight. As the low-pressure system moves eastwards the focus of the winds will move to the east coast of northern England and Scotland in the early hours of Monday morning with gusts up to 88 km/h (55 mph).  

Atiyah is the first named storm of the season which started in September. The naming convention now also includes the Dutch meteorological service, KNMI. Storms are named to aid the communication of approaching severe weather, helping the public to be better placed to keep themselves, their property and businesses safe.
