Extreme Wildfires Update

‘Fearful Sights,’ Increasing Fires and Floods in ‘Diverse Places’; Pine Gulch Fire in Colorado remapped to over 122,000 acres, still the second-largest in history of the state. There are currently 4 major wildfires currently burning in Colorado.

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 wildfire caused by lightning on July 31, 2020, about 29 km (18 miles) north of Grand Junction, Colorado has spread to 49 283 ha (121 781 acres) by August 20, 2020. Since rapid spread on August 19, this is the second-largest wildfire in the state’s history.

Fire growth was minimal overnight Thursday, August 20, and more accurate mapping has now shown the total fire area to be 49 283 ha (121 781 acres), as opposed to the formerly reported 50 626 ha (125 100 acres).

The fire grew more than 15 000 ha (37 000 acres) overnight Wednesday, August 19, surpassing Spring Creek Fire of 2018 (43 724 ha / 108 045 acres) and becoming the state’s second-largest fire in history. The fourth-largest Colorado wildfire on record is now High Park Fire (2012) at 35 322 ha (87 284 acres). Hayman Fire of 2002 remains the largest at 55 749 ha (137 760 acres).

Firefighters have made significant progress on the north and east sides today, bringing the total containment to 14%.

Today’s main concern will be storm cells moving over the fire area from around 12:00 LT to midnight and producing gusty outflow winds up to 72 km/h (45 mph).

These winds could contribute to extreme fire behavior and active spread with potential for spotting. Along with storm concerns, the inversion is expected to break early – approximately 12:00 LT – creating further instability in the atmosphere.

Today, crews will be working on both primary and alternate pre-identified control lines. On the south side at the Division B/A break, fire is moving slowly toward a solid dozer line that extends into the Hunter Fire burn scar.

Fire behavior in this area and in the rest of Division B was limited yesterday, but it could be more significant today and tonight because of incoming weather.

A total of 872 firefighters are battling extreme fire behavior. The combination of extremely dry fuels, low relative humidity, high temperatures, and terrain driven winds may continue to create extreme fire behavior that is resistant to suppression efforts.

There is Red Flag Warning today for dry lightning and outflow winds, and a chance of thunderstorms after 14:00 LT with lighting and outflow winds up to 72 km/h (45 mph). Thunderstorm development is most likely to the northwest of the fire.

The hot and dry weather will continue as high pressure remains the dominant weather feature, with temperatures as high as 35 °C (95 °F) and humidity at 12-14%. Winds will be northerly at 15 – 20 km/h (9 – 12 mph) with gusts to 32 km/h (20 mph). The southwest side of the fire could see south/southwest winds again today.

An evacuation order is in effect for Garfield County: 4A Ridge Road (256), Salt Wash (205), King Road (258), Clear Creek Road (211), Carr Creek Road (207), and Kimball Creek Road (202). A pre-evacuation order is in effect for all residents of Garfield County west of CO-139 to the Utah border, and any formerly evacuated residents remain in pre-evacuation.

There are currently 4 major wildfires currently burning in Colorado. Together they have scorched more than 70 820 ha (175 000 acres).

The Grizzly Creek Fire burning in Glenwood Canyon is currently at 12 032 ha (29 732 acres) and is 4% contained. The fire forced the closure of Interstate 70. The Cameron Peak Fire in western Larimer County scorched 6 661 ha (16 461 acres) and is now fully suppressed. The fourth fire is the Williams Fork Fire in Grand County which is now at 3 827 ha (9 457 acres) and only 3% contained.

Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced a ban on campfires, fireworks, and other open sources of ignition for at least 30 days.

“Since fires are often between counties and between jurisdictions, this will help reduce all of our risks,” Polis said.

“As we’ve said before during coronavirus, and Coloradans have been successful, now is not the time to party. We add to that now, that now is not the time to have campfires or fireworks.”

. . . “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).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “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).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

Romans 12:19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
