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.
Italian crematoriums running out of space as MILITARY patrols enforce quarantine in world’s DEADLIEST coronavirus hotspot (VIDEOS)

With Italy taking China’s place as the top Covid-19 epicenter, the country is struggling to keep up with the number of new deaths, as morgues quickly fill to capacity and the army has been called in to enforce a national lockdown.
Italy marked the deadliest day yet for any country in the fast-moving coronavirus pandemic on Friday, reporting 627 fatalities in a single day. The lethal outbreak isn’t just pushing Italy’s hospitals to their breaking point, but mortuaries and crematoria have also been overwhelmed by the sheer number of patients killed by the disease, forcing some to consider halting the intake of new bodies to make room.
At the moment we receive an average of 25 coffins a day but we can manage only 12,” the manager of a crematorium in the province of Piacenza in northern Italy told RT’s Ruptly.
Obviously, this situation creates an abnormal amount, bringing us to an emergency phase, making us very likely to halt for a few days in order to be able to recover some space.
Neighboring regions have already begun sending their own excess bodies to the Piacenza facility, the manager added, observing: “It is the same problem that Bergamo had and exactly for this reason, we are receiving the coffins from all across central and northern Italy. They do not have any more provisional spaces for coffins.”
The grim dilemma comes as Italy reports in excess of 47,000 infections and 4,000 deaths, with the rapid growth in cases prompting Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to extend a national lockdown imposed last week beyond its original April 3 cutoff, affecting some 60 million people. Additional travel restrictions could come within the next 48 hours, Minister of Regional Affairs Francesco Boccia said on Friday, suggesting all public activities could be ground to a halt.
There are so many people walking around who have the virus and who are at risk of infecting others,” Matteo Bassetti, the director of the infectious diseases department at Genoa’s San Martino clinic, told Italy’s AGI news agency.
The 40,000 cases we are talking about could actually be 100 times higher.
Soldiers have already been called into the streets to enforce the stringent containment measures, with scores of mask-clad troops seen patrolling Sicily’s capital of Palermo on Friday in footage captured by Ruptly. Deployed as reinforcements under the so-called “Safe Streets” operation, the soldiers have concentrated attention on the city’s central train station and its port.
Sicily – an autonomous region of Italy – has tallied 340 cases of Covid-19 since Thursday.
Worldwide, the coronavirus has spread to more than 275,000 people across at least 160 nations, after the epidemic began in China’s Hubei Province late last year. While China has seen the worst of its own outbreak after three months of intense efforts to combat it, the disease has since spread to every inhabited continent and quickly burgeoned into a global pandemic.
