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’; Typhoon Maysak: Japan warns of ‘major disaster’ in Okinawa region
31 Aug 2020 Al Jazeera
A powerful typhoon is barrelling towards Japan’s southern islands, bearing dangerous winds, as weather authorities warn of a “major disaster” in the region.
The Japan Meteorological Agency warned on Monday that Typhoon Maysak could bring with it storm surge, heavy rains, high waves and violent winds, potentially causing a “major disaster” in the Okinawa region.
The agency also called on residents to “evacuate to sturdy buildings before winds get stronger”.
Maysak is expected to gain further strength, with maximum winds of 252kmph (156.6 mph) as it closes in on the island from late at night, Okinawa Governor Denny Tamaki said in a statement on Sunday.
A total of 180 flights to and from the Okinawa region had already been cancelled and many schools and public offices were closed from Monday afternoon, the Okinawa Times newspaper reported.
As of 5pm local time (08:00 GMT), the eye of the storm was about 190km (118 miles) south of Naha, Okinawa’s capital, travelling north-north-west at 35km/h (21.7 mph) with maximum sustained winds of 144kmph (89.6 mph) and gusts of 216km/h (134.2 mph), the agency said.
Forecasters were warning of flooding, mudslides and swollen rivers, as the storm is expected to unleash up to 80 millimetres (3.1 inches) of rainfall per hour on some parts of the island of Okinawa.
The agency forecast rainfall of up to 400 millimetres (15.7 inches) for Okinawa and up to 150 millimetres (5.9 inches) for the Amami Island region by late on Tuesday.
In 2019, Japan was hit by the most powerful typhoons to hit the country in six decades left as many as 36 (6×6) people dead.
Typhoon Hagibis left the capital, Tokyo, relatively unscathed, but caused serious damage to surrounding regions, as rivers burst their banks and the torrential rain triggered landslides.
