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 victims’ cremated bodies blamed on ominous black rain falling in Japan

City officials in the prefecture of Saitama in central Japan have promised to get to the bottom of a mysterious soot-coloured rain that coated the city of Hasuda and surrounds on Monday.
The strange phenomenon has prompted wild conspiracies theories on social media.
There are claims the sludge is the fallout from a mass incineration of coronavirus bodies in China, the aftermath of a nuclear test in North Korea or the result of fuel dumping from planes flying overhead.
Authorities in the area just north of Tokyo have tested the radiation levels in the black puddles that pooled on the city’s streets and concluded that there was “nothing out of the ordinary”.
The population’s anxiety over the event is understandable, however, given that radioactive black rain did fall over Japan after the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, claiming an estimated 120,000 lives.
“That’s about as bad an omen as you can get these days,” one person posted on Twitter, using the #blackrain handle.
“Are they secretly burning the bodies of coronavirus victims?” another tweeted.
“Didn’t North Korea fire missiles on that day?” asked another.
The most plausible explanation appears to be a recent fire at a plastics factory in Noda, in the neighbouring prefecture of Chiba, but this has not been confirmed either.
