Foreshadow Now, ‘Season of the End Times’:
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.
Future Seven (7) Year Tribulation and Great Tribulation:
Revelation 6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Coronavirus death toll in UK rises to 233 with 41-year-old Britain’s youngest victim in biggest 24-hour leap yet

BRITAIN’S coronavirus death toll today rose to 233 – with a 41-year-old becoming the UK’s youngest victim yet.
The 56 new deaths were recorded for the whole of the UK in the biggest 24-hour leap yet.
NHS England confirmed 53 people had died after testing positive – including the 41-year-old who had underlying health conditions.
Two further people died in Wales – bringing the total death toll to 55, health officials confirmed.
One coronavirus victim died at Singleton Hospital aged 75, while a 98-year-old passed away at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. Both had underlying health conditions.
And the number of deaths in Scotland rose to seven today after one more person died, while 373 people have now tested positive for the killer virus there.
It comes after Boris Johnson said without “drastic action” cases will double every five to six days.
Today’s total of 233 means the death toll in the UK has actually quadrupled in the five days since the PM’s grim warning.
There had been 55 coronavirus fatalities on March 16 when Boris first spoke to the nation in a No10 daily briefing.
Coronavirus cases for the UK have soared to 5,018, according to the latest figures released by the Department of Health today.
The number of cases have rocketed by 1,035 in the last 24 hours, up from 3,983 yesterday.
Northern Ireland today reported a rise of 22 extra cases, taking it’s total to 108.
It comes as Brits were today warned to “be responsible” and stop panic buying because there is enough food for everyone.
In today’s daily Downing Street announcement, Brits were urged to “stay calm” and stop stripping shop shelves bare by Environment, Food and Rural Affairs secretary George Eustice.
The national medical director made a direct plea to the nation this afternoon at Downing Street to do what they are being told.
He added people should be “ashamed” of themselves for panic-buying, and urged people to think of struggling NHS staff.
“I would like to make a plea on behalf of all my colleagues in the NHS, nurses, doctors, paramedics and many, many others who are working incredibly hard at the moment to manage this outbreak of coronavirus,” he said.
“It’s incredibly important that they too have access to food, to those essential supplies that they need.”
It comes after Boris Johnson yesterday vowed “we will get through this together” as he introduced drastic new measures that saw pubs, clubs and restaurants ordered to close their doors.
Cinemas, theatres and galleries will also close in a desperate bid to curb the spread of the bug.
The government lockdown will be reviewed after the two-week shutdown ends.
Mr Johnson said: “Clearly, there are licencing arrangements which will make it relatively simple to do should that be necessary.
“We will enforce it strictly, but in reality everybody can see the imperative of doing what is necessary, of protecting our NHS and saving lives.”
It came after pictures showed boozed-up Brits spilling out of clubs and bars in recent days.
Last night, revellers also packed out pubs for the last time before their doors shut for at least two weeks.
Hundreds of revellers flouted government advice to swerve pubs and descended on British cities last night.
Britain’s lockdown means around 1.4million Brits could be told to self-isolate on Monday due to the bug.
Experts say that older people and those with underlying health conditions are more susceptible to the deadly bug.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “These are some of the most difficult and challenging cases so we’ll be getting in contact with them, but if people think that they are on this list and don’t receive a communication from the NHS, then they also need to get in contact.
“So that is under way, the money was announced for it yesterday.
“A combination of money to the NHS and money to councils because they’ve got a very big part to play in keeping people safe.”
