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.
Revelation 6:7-8 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.
(‘fourth part’ = 25% = *7.7 billion x .25 = 1.93 billion people) *estimated earth population as of March 2020.
Tropical Storm “Fay” forms just off the coast of North Carolina, bringing heavy rains and strong winds to Mid-Atlantic coast and New England. The 6th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season

Tropical Storm “Fay” formed at 21:00 UTC on July 9, 2020, just off the coast of North Carolina, U.S. as the 6th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. The center of Fay is forecast to move near the Mid-Atlantic coast today and move inland over the mid-Atlantic or the northeast United States late tonight or on Saturday, July 11, bringing heavy rain and strong winds.
Fay is the earliest 6th named storm in the Atlantic Ocean on record and comes on the heels of Tropical Storm “Edouard” — the 5th earliest named storm in the Atlantic. The previous 6th named storm record holder was Franklin on July 22, 2005, and the 5th was Emily on July 12, 2005.
Impacts from this system will extend across parts of the Mid-Atlantic into Southern New England including moderate to locally heavy rainfall and flash flood potential near and north of its track, gusty winds, and rough surf along the coast, NWS said.
At the time it formed, Fay was 65 km (40 miles) ENE of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and 310 km (195 miles) S of Ocean City, Maryland.
By 06:00 UTC, it was located about 170 km (105 miles) S of Ocean City and 235 km (145 miles) S of Cape May, New Jersey.
The storm had maximum sustained winds of 75 km/h (45 mph) and was moving north at 13 km/h (8 mph). Its minimum central pressure was 1 005 hPa.
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Cape May, New Jersey to Watch Hill, Rhode Island, including Long Island and Long Island Sound.
A northward to north-northeastward motion at a faster forward speed is expected over the next couple of days, NWS forecaster Pasch noted.
On the forecast track, the center of Fay is forecast to move near the Mid-Atlantic coast today and move inland over the mid-Atlantic or the northeast United States late tonight (LT) or on Saturday, July 10.
Little change in strength is forecast today and tonight while the center remains over water. Weakening should begin after the center moves inland.
Fay is expected to produce 75 – 125 mm (3 to 5 inches) of rain with isolated maxima of 205 mm (8 inches) along and near its track across the Mid-Atlantic states into southeast New York and southern New England.
These rains may result in flash flooding where the heaviest amounts occur.
Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area today and spread northward through the warning area tonight.
Minor flooding is possible along the coast for portions of the Tropical Storm Warning area.
Isolated tornadoes are possible today over portions of New Jersey, southeast New York, and southern New England.
According to Dr. Philip Klotzbach, a meteorologist at CSU specializing in Atlantic basin seasonal hurricane forecasts, the first 5 Atlantic named storms of 2020 generated a measly 6.7 ACE (Accumulated Cyclone Energy — ACE — an integrated metric that accounts for intensity and duration).
Only 2 Atlantic hurricane seasons on record (since 1851) have had less ACE from 1st 5 storms of the year: 2017 and 1988.
Basically, the first 5 Atlantic named storms of 2020 have been quite weak and of relatively short duration, Klotzbach noted.
The Colorado State University (CSU) has chosen 6 analogs for its July seasonal hurricane forecast: 1966, 1995, 2003, 2008, 2011, and 2016. All of these years had above-average Atlantic hurricane activity and were generally characterized by cool neutral ENSO or La Nina conditions and warm tropical Atlantic.
Another reason for the active CSU Atlantic hurricane season forecast is odds of El Nino this summer/fall are extremely low. Tropical eastern and central Pacific remain cooler than normal. Atmospheric circulation is looking more La Nina-like with suppressed convection near the dateline.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!
Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)
A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
