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.
A new locust swarm arrives in Argentina from Paraguay, swarms moving north into Brazil: Meanwhile risk of swarm migration from the Horn of Africa prevails: China is the latest country infected.
Wednesday, 22 July 2020 The Big Wobble
Detection of a new locust swarm from Paraguay (Translated from Spanish). The second swarm arrives.
There are two swarms that are in our country, (Argentina) one in the province of Entre Ríos and the other in the area of Formosa.
A month ago Argentina and Brazil said they were monitoring the movement of what was then a 15-square-kilometre locust swarm. The three countries are among the world’s biggest soybean exporters.
Buenos Aires – The National Service for Agrifood Health and Quality (Senasa) confirms the detection of a new swarm in Formosa, which came from Paraguay. In the region, there are three locust swarms detected, one in the Central Chaco area of Paraguay, the other two in our country. So far this year, this is the second entry of the plague from the neighbouring country.
The other manga is currently in Entre Ríos, in the Federal Department. The manga that entered Argentina in mid-May through Formosa, crossed Chaco, Santa Fe, Corrientes, and on Sunday reached the province of Entre Ríos as predicted by Senasa. In Corrientes, with low temperatures, and therefore low mobility, the plague was present for a month, during which phytosanitary treatments were carried out together with the Plant Production Directorate that allowed it to decrease its population density.
Currently, it articulates with representatives of producer federations, municipalities and provinces to implement new phytosanitary treatments. On the other hand, the swarm detected in Guadalcazar Formosa, advanced in a southern direction crossing National Route 81 at the height of Laguna Yema – Pozo del Mortero. The north wind allowed it to move quickly and is expected to approach the Río Bermejo today. In this sense, the alert is extended to the Chaco province. In parallel, permanent communication is maintained with the National Service of Plant and Seed Quality and Health (Senave) of Paraguay, in order to have information on the third round that could approach our country in the short term, so that the alert remains for the province of Formosa and is incorporated for Salta.

Desert Locust situation update 21 July 2020
China is the latest country to join the ever-growing list of countries being devastated by locust invasions stretching 3 continents including South America, Africa the Middle East, Arabia, Indo Pakistan, Nepal, Myanmar all struggling to control trillions of locusts. TBW
Unprecedented rainfall which started back in early June and is now still raging has caused horrendous floods affecting untold million including many hundred dead along an immense portion of the globe and shows no stopping anytime soon. From West Africa, the Middle East, Arabia, Indo Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, China and Japan have all received Biblical amounts of rainfall. Stranger still all the regions mentioned above, (except Japan) are all being crippled by another Biblical plague, unprecedented numbers of Locust swarms.
Risk of swarm migration from the Horn of Africa prevails.
In Kenya, locust swarms have declined in the northwest, mainly in Marsabit county, but continue to be present in Turkana where aerial and ground control operations are in progress. Most of these swarms are still expected to migrate northwards to Ethiopia and Sudan via South Sudan. There is a risk that a few swarms may cross the border into northeast Uganda. The scale of the migration of remaining swarms from Kenya is likely to be smaller than previously anticipated due to ongoing control operations.
In Ethiopia, ground and aerial control operations continue mainly against immature swarms in the northern Rift Valley and in the Harar Highlands in the east. There are reports of locusts in the south coming from Kenya, and locusts are present in the northern highlands of Amhara and Tigray. Timely reporting has been compromised due to Internet disruptions. More breeding is expected during the summer, which may be supplemented by a few swarms arriving from Yemen.
In Somalia, ground and aerial control operations are underway against immature swarms on the northern plateau between Hargeisa and Garowe. The swarms are moving eastwards across the north and they could continue to migrate across the Indian Ocean to reach the summer breeding areas along both sides of the Indo-Pakistan border.
In Yemen, heavy rains fell in the interior and flooding occurred in Wadi Hadhramaut. Breeding continues throughout the interior as well as in some coastal areas that have given rise to numerous hopper bands and swarms. There is a risk that some of these swarms may appear on the Red Sea coast and breed in areas of recent rainfall. Survey and ground control operations are underway in a few places. No locusts were present in adjacent areas of southwest Saudi Arabia.
In Sudan, low numbers of mature solitarious adults are present in the Nile Valley, near Kassala and in White Nile and North Kordofan states. Control was carried out against local breeding near Atbara. No swarms have been detected from Kenya.
In Oman, control operations are in progress against hopper groups and bands along the southern coast near Salalah while low numbers of solitarious mature adults are present in the adjacent interior. There have been no reports of swarms appearing on the east coast from the Horn of Africa.
In Pakistan, control operations are in progress against hopper groups and bands in the Nagarparkar area of southeast Sindh near the Indian border. Groups of adults are maturing in Tharparkar and Cholistan deserts where laying is expected in areas that have already received monsoon rains. This will cause a further increase in locust numbers as hatching and hopper band formation to occur in the coming weeks.
In India, adult groups and swarms are maturing throughout Rajasthan where laying is underway in many areas. So far, a few hopper groups and bands have formed but substantial hatching is expected in the coming weeks. Control operations are in progress. There have been no recent reports of additional locusts in the northern states as most of the adult groups and swarms have returned to Rajasthan as expected. There remains a risk that a limited number of swarms could migrate from northeast Somalia to the Indo-Pakistan border area during the remainder of this month.
In Iran, a few small residual infestations remain in Khorasan province and control operations are in progress.
In West Africa, low numbers of solitarious adults are present in southeast Mauritania, northern Niger, and parts of western and eastern Chad. While the threat of invasion by swarms is declining, continued vigilance, preparedness, and increased surveillance remain paramount. FAO
