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.
Future, during the seven (7) year tribulation;
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.
Past 15 (5+5+5) Days, ‘Increasing, Like Birth Pains, Fearful Natural Disasters’ in ‘Diverse Places’; Record-early winter storm brings much below-average temperatures and record snow from Montana to New Mexico, U.S.
Posted by Teo Blašković on September 10, 2020 Watchers.news
One of the earliest snowstorms on record swept through parts of the United States, from Montana to New Mexico on September 8 and 9, 2020, bringing record-early snow and record-cold temperatures to much of the region. The weather system hit the region after record-breaking heat, producing a drastic 33 °C (60 °F) drop in temperatures within just 24 hours.
The slow-moving mid to upper level low that has been responsible for the early season winter storm through the Rockies and Central High Plains is winding down on Thursday, September 10.
“Winter weather will be confined to the Central Rockies tonight into Thursday where additional heavy snows are possible,” NWS forecaster Oravec said.
The much below-average temperatures that this system has also been responsible for, from the Rockies into the Plains, will continue to moderate over the next two days.
Temperatures are expected to remain well below average Thursday and Friday, September 11 across much of the Central to Southern Rockies into the Central to Southern Plains but they are not expected to be as below average as in past days, according to Oravec.
The weather started shifting in Montana as early as Sunday, September 6. Before the event was over, the city of Red Lodge – a gateway to Yellowstone National Park — received 266.7 mm (10.5 inches) of snow.
Some of the greatest snow totals were recorded in Wyoming, where up to 431.8 mm (17 inches) of snow fell just south of Casper, Natrona County.
Casper recorded 58.4 mm (2.3 inches) on snow on September 7, and 132 mm (5.2 inches) on September 8, breaking its previous earliest measurable snow by one day (September 8, 1962).
Rapid City, South Dakota recorded 25.4 mm (1 inch) on September 7, breaking its previous record early snow by 4 days (September 11, 2014).
On September 8, Cheyenne, Wyoming tied its earliest measurable snow with 27.9 mm (1.1 inches).
At least 50.8 mm (2 inches) fell on Ft. Collins, Colorado on September 8, breaking the city’s previous record early measurable snow by 4 days.
Pueblo, Colorado also broke its record-earliest snowfall dating back to 1898 on September 9, 2020.
Earliest-snow records were also broken in North Platte, Nebraska; Goodland, Kansas; Yuma, Colorado; and Las Vegas, New Mexico.
Aside from the snow, this storm brought strong winds and very cold to record-breaking low temperatures throughout the region.
Denver, Colorado registered 25.4 mm (1 inch) of snow, just days after the city hit an all-time September high of 38.3 °C (101 °F) on September 5.
The city tied a record-low temperature of -0.5 °C (31 °F) on September 8 and 9. The last time it was this cold in the city on September 8 and 9 was in 1962.
Denver also experienced its largest 2 Calendar day drop, in temperature for September, of 34 °C (62 °F). The previous record was 32 °C (59 °F) set in September 1993.
Albuquerque, New Mexico registered 5.5 °C (42 °F) on September 8 and 4.4 °C (40 °F) on September 9, breaking its record low temperature for the day, set at 6.1 °C (43 °F) in 1915.
NWS Meteorologist Clay Anderson said the city experienced November weather in early September. The temperature drop is ‘highly unusual,’ because it comes after a Labor Day weekend with temperatures in the 90s [°F] – and on the heels of one of the hottest Augusts on record, Anderson said.
According to the NWS office in Amarillo, Texas, all three of their official climate sites in the Panhandles broke their record low temperatures on September 9 and ‘crushed the record Coldest High Temperatures’ for the day. “These record cold high temperatures probably won’t be matched any time soon,” the office said.
Amarillo ASOS registered 4.4 °C (40 °F) on September 8, setting the new record low for September 8. This is now the all-time earliest (on record) Amarillo has hit a low of 40 °F after summer. The previous record was set on September 10, 1898.
The same site registered 2.7 °C (37 °F) at 09:55 LT on September 9, breaking the old record for the date set at 6.6 C (44 °F) in 1941. It is also the all-time earliest on record Amarillo has dropped into the 30s °F, beating the old record by 2 days.
“Tomorrow [September 10] could very well be the third day in a row that record low has been broken this week,” NWS Amarillo meteorologists said. “It’s going to be close in some places, with the low tying the record in the morning. One more cold morning then warming to the 50s [°F] in the afternoon.”
Damaging winds hit the region, from 96 km/h (60 mph) to as high as 156 km/h (97 mph), leaving hundreds of thousands without power. As of 10:00 UTC on September 10, about 67 000 customers are still without power in Utah.
Farmers are also reporting extensive crop damage after incredible temperature swing and snow
In contrast, massive wildfires are raging throughout the West Coast, from Washington to California, producing extremely large smoke plume for the past 3 days.
Elevated fire weather threats remain for portions of the West Coast today, but as winds continue to decrease, these threats will also weaken.
The strong, gusty winds over the West are expected to weaken by the weekend, helping reduce the severity of the fire conditions. However, low humidity and warmer temperatures will be enough for elevated fire concerns to remain.
With the wind direction returning to a more westerly component, smoke from the wildfires may waft and settle inland.
