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.
Moscow records warmest winter since 1880 when record-keeping began. Videos.

The 2019/20 winter season was Moscow’s warmest winter season since record-keeping started 140 years ago. This was also the first winter averaging at or above 0 °C (32 °F).
Russia’s forecasting center head Roman Vilfand said that Russia’s average temperature from December to February has been 2.5 °C (4.5 °F) warmer than the previous record of -2.8 °C (26.9 °F) during the winter of 1960/61. This is 6.3 °C (11.3 °F) warmer than the 1981-2010 average.
Vilfand said such differences between records were extremely unusual. “We can state with confidence that there will not be a warmer winter for a long period of time,” he said.
As the data for Russia’s overall record was still being compiled, Vilfand said the country as a whole is also likely to set a record for the warmest winter. In addition to the extremes, 2019 was also the hottest year ever recorded in the country. This resulted in a severe lack of seasonal snowfall to the point where officials had to import artificial snow for New Year’s festivities.
Although the rate of warming for the country was 2.5% higher than the rest of the world and the Russian government approved their national plan for the adaptation to climate change earlier this year, President Vladimir Putin said nobody knows the origins of global climate change.
“We know that in the history of our Earth there have been periods of warming and cooling and it could depend on processes in the universe,” he added.
“A small angle in the axis in the rotation of the Earth or its orbit around the Sun could push the planet into serious climate changes.”
December and January were supposed to be the months with maximum snowfall, but both months hit temperature records as the city saw a rare snow drought. “Winters used to be a lot harder here,” said 62-year-old Alexander Stanko.
Meanwhile, other parts of Europe also faced extremely weak winter conditions. For instance, Finland’s Helsinki had almost no snowfall in January or February, with only 0.2 cm (0.08 inches) during the entire winter season. France had its warmest winter as well, while Germany’s ice wine harvest saw failure for the first time ever.
