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.
Trump says he’s considering restrictions on domestic travel from coronavirus hotspots
Alan Boyle GeekWire•March 14, 2020
In response to the coronavirus outbreak, restrictions on European travel will be extended to Britain and Ireland on Monday – and President Donald Trump said today that limits on travel from domestic hotspots such as the Seattle area were under consideration as well.
During a White House briefing on the administration’s response to the outbreak, Trump was asked whether he was thinking about domestic travel limitations.
“Specifically from certain areas, yes, we are,” the president replied. “We’re working with the states, and we are considering other restrictions.”
Seattle and the surrounding area in King County have been among the hottest hotspots in the early phases of the U.S. epidemic. As of Friday, King County accounted for about a quarter of the nation’s confirmed coronavirus cases, and nearly two-thirds of deaths.
Tara Lee, communications director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, said the topic of domestic travel restrictions hasn’t come up.
“The governor and our staff have been in regular conversation with VP [Mike] Pence and his team, and this has not been raised,” Lee told GeekWire in an email. “The vice president has repeatedly said, and the governor has agreed, that we are working well together.”
The limits on travel from Britain and Ireland, which are due to go into effect at midnight ET Monday, mirror a previously announced 30-day restriction on travel from other European countries. U.S. residents will be able to return home, but will face screening and a 14-day quarantine requirement when they arrive.
The restrictions were expanded because of a significant rise in infections in Britain.
When a reporter noted that the Pentagon has halted most domestic travel for its personnel and family members through May 11 to slow the outbreak, Trump made a strong pitch for Americans to stay put.
“If you don’t have to travel, I wouldn’t do it,” he said.https://youtu.be/apDtD9eROvQ
