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.

Hordes of starving monkeys seen storming empty streets in Thailand as tourists stay away. The normally well-fed primates had no food after coronavirus fears left the normally busy streets in Thailand completely empty of tourists. TDS
Hundreds of starving monkeys fought over a single banana that was left in the street, as tourists who regularly feed them shun Thailand.
The normally well-fed primates swarmed across a street in Lopubri, central Thailand, after they spotted a fellow monkey holding a banana.
A clip showed the primates giving chase to the unlucky monkey, who was doing his best to stay ahead of the pack.
But, it took a sinister turn as they started to shriek and fight over the measly fruit.
The monkeys are then seen jumping over one another and ferociously grabbing at each other as the battle for the banana escalated.
Bystanders were stunned and said the behaviour was totally out of character for the monkeys.
Onlooker Sasaluk Rattanchai, who filmed the banana brawl, said: “They looked more like wild dogs than monkeys. They went crazy for the single piece of food. I’ve never seen them this aggressive.”
She added: “I think the monkeys were very, very hungry.
“There’s normally a lot of tourists here to feed the monkeys but now there are not as many, because of the coronavirus .”
Lopburi is a popular tourist destination, where visitors typically feed the thousands of monkeys who live near temples in the city.
Local media claimed the hundreds of monkeys belonged to two rival gangs and had been squabbling over food as tourist numbers to the country plummeted.
It was claimed the two gangs’ territories are cut off from one another due to train tracks that snake their way through the city.
The apparent hunger of one tribe appeared to have pushed them to cross over in the search of food.
But, Lopburi resident Somchai Unakong, 75, told Thai news questioned whether the behaviour could be linked to the coronavirus outbreak.
He said: “Did this relate to the Covid-19 virus that is spreading? I wondered.” The monkey mayhem comes days after troops of primates raided the offices of India’s cabinet ministers and took over the building
