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.
Record-breaking snow – up to 3.3 m (10.8 feet) engulfs Kiruna, Sweden

Heavy snow fell over Sweden’s northern town of Kiruna on Thursday, March 19, 2020, adding to the total amount of around 3.3 m (10.8 feet) that has accumulated since the beginning of the winter season on September 30, 2019. The amount broke the previous record of 3.1 m (10.2 feet) from the 1997/98 season.
“We have already set a record and we know that it can be another meter before the season is over,” said Stefan Sydberg, the vice-chairman of the municipal council.
Sydberg reportedly expressed his statement in a thrilled manner, adding that it’s positive when a winter town delivers.
The winter town indeed delivered fine, as has the northern hemisphere as a whole. Residents shared photos and videos of the town covered in white, with some showing trucks scraping huge amounts of snow.
“They’re doing the big spring scraping now. We have quite a bit of snow here in Kiruna this season,” one Twitter user posted.
“In the spirit of spreading sunshine and helping you plan future travels, behold beautiful Kiruna, Sweden, where the sunsets are made even more stunning by the reflective snow,” another user wrote as a caption to a photoset showing the stunning whiteout conditions.
