Hurricane Update

In the past 10 days, ‘Increasing Like Labor Pains’, ‘Seas and Waves Roaring’ in ‘Diverse Places’; Maysak becomes strongest typhoon of the year, heads toward South Korea after lashing Okinawa

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.

In the past 10 days, ‘Increasing Like Labor Pains’, ‘Seas and Waves Roaring’ in ‘Diverse Places’; Maysak becomes strongest typhoon of the year, heads toward South Korea after lashing Okinawa

Posted by Teo Blašković on September 1, 2020

Typhoon “Maysak” became the strongest typhoon of the year on August 31, 2020, with its eye passing very close to Kume Island, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. The storm is moving towards the Korean Peninsula, with landfall expected near Busan, South Korea on September 2. Another powerful typhoon — Haishen — is expected to move toward Japan later this week, and possibly impact Kyushu around September 6 before it approaches the Korean Peninsula.

Maysak intensified to Category 4 hurricane equivalent on August 31, becoming the strongest typhoon of the year so far. According to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), Maysak’s central pressure was around 940 hPa, which is nearly the same as Hurricane “Laura” at the time of landfall in Louisiana, U.S.

Kumejima airport recorded the strongest wind gust at 196 km/h (121 mph) and 225 mm (8.8 inches) of rain in 24 hours.

At least 5 people have been injured and more than 30 000 households lost power.

In Okinawa’s capital Naha, where peak gust of 157 km/h (98 mph) was measured, a wall of a building was ripped off, damaging two cars parked nearby. Many buildings had their roofs blown off, more than 250 flights have been canceled and many bus and ferry services temporarily canceled.

Maysak is now moving towards the north and is expected to pass very close to Kyushu before it makes landfall in South Korea on September 2 as one of the strongest typhoons to hit the country on record. Only 5 other Category 2+ typhoons have made landfall in South Korea since 1959.

The country is still recovering from this year’s record-long monsoon which caused destructive flooding and left more than 40 people dead.

After moving over South Korea, Maysak is forecast to reach North Korea — which was hit by Typhoon “Bavi” last week, one of the country’s three strongest typhoons on record.

At 07:00 UTC September 1, Maysak’s center was located about 110 kilometers (70 miles) northwest of Kume Island, Okinawa.

Its maximum 10-minute sustained winds were at 175 km/h (110 mph), maximum 1-minute sustained winds at 230 km/h (145 mph), with gusts to 250 km/h (155 mph). The minimum central barometric pressure was 935 hPa, and the system was moving northward at 13 km/h (8 mph).

“Animated multispectral satellite imagery depicts spiral banding wrapping tightly into an approximately 18 km (11.5 miles) diameter eye,” JTWC forecasters noted.

The environment continues to be favorable with robust, radial outflow aloft, low vertical wind shear, warm sea surface temperatures, and continued high ocean heat content. Maysak is tracking under the combined steering influence of two subtropical ridges and is currently rounding the primary steering ridge axis positioned to the east.

The system will track poleward after rounding the axis of the steering ridge and will begin weakening due to decreasing sea surface temperatures and increasing vertical wind shear over the next 3 days.

By 21:00 UTC on September 1, Maysak will weaken to 215 km/h (130 mph), and further to 185 km/h (115 mph) by 09:00 UTC on September 2 due to the degrading environmental conditions.

Furthermore, analysis of the eyewall structure in microwave imagery suggests that an eyewall replacement cycle is likely, which will also contribute to the weakening trend over the next 24 to 48 hours.

After tracking generally northward over the next 24 hours, the system will make landfall on the southern coast of South Korea, west of the city of Busan. It will then continue to weaken to 150 km/h (90 mph) by 21:00 UTC on September 2 as it moves inland due to the frictional effects of land and very high vertical wind shear.

The system will begin the extratropical transition as it becomes embedded in the baroclinic zone at that time. 

Another potentially catastrophic typhoon — Haishen — is expected to strengthen on its way toward Kyushu and the Korean Peninsula over the next couple of days.

We’ll have more about that system in another report. For now, take a look at JTWC’s forecast track and the GFS forecast model:

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.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “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).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “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 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,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
