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.
Coronavirus cases in the UK jump past 100
Will Taylor News Reporter Yahoo News UK•March 5, 2020
The number of cases in the UK has gone past 100, officials have confirmed this afternoon.
The government’s update means the country’s cases have leapt from 51 to 115 in just two days.
It follows Prof Whitty’s warning earlier that deaths in the UK from the virus could reach a “large absolute number”.
Speaking to the Commons’ Health and Social Care Committee, he said: “For those people who get the disease severe enough to need hospital but not severe enough, fortunately, to kill them, they will still need NHS and health care.”
He added that the government has now moved in to the “delay phase” of tackling the virus, mostly moving on from attempts to contain.
This is aimed at moving back the virus’ peak from the winter pressures that face the NHS, as well as allowing for time to research the virus.
Nobody has died in the UK from coronavirus but a British man who had been aboard the cruise ship the Diamond Princess died from the illness last week.
Meanwhile, Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg told MPs there is no medical reason to shut down parliament.
He responded to reports that lawmakers could be locked out of the Palace of Westminster for five months to stop the virus spreading.
Meanwhile, the man thought to be the first British person to be infected with coronavirus said it hit him “like a train”.
Writing in a diary-style piece for the Mail, Conor Reed, a manager at a school in Wuhan, China, the epicentre of the virus, records that he has “never been this ill in my life” and felt he was suffocating, which prompted him to visit hospital.
