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.
‘So, What ELSE is Happening Today???’ Sally rapidly strengthens into a Category 2 hurricane, extremely dangerous storm surge expected, U.S. 500,000 (5) without power. Videos.
Posted by Teo Blašković on September 14, 2020 Watchers.news.
Tropical Storm “Sally” has rapidly strengthened into a hurricane by 16:00 UTC on September 14, 2020, becoming the 7th hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. At the time, its center was located about 220 km (135 miles) ESE of the Mouth of the Mississippi River. It had maximum sustained winds of 140 km/h (85 mph) and minimum central pressure of 985 hPa.
By 21:00 UTC, Sally’s center was located about 170 km (105 miles) E of the Mouth of the Mississippi River and 230 km (145 miles) SE of Biloxi, Mississippi.
Maximum sustained winds increased to 155 km/h (100 mph) and minimum central pressure to 987 hPa. This made Sally a Category 2 hurricane.
The system is moving WNW at 9 km/h (6 mph).
Additional strengthening is forecast tonight and early Tuesday and Sally is expected to be a dangerous hurricane when it moves onshore along the north-central Gulf Coast, NHC warns.
A Storm Surge Warning is in effect for:
– Port Fourchon, Louisiana to the Okaloosa/Walton County Line, Florida
– Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas, and Lake Borgne
– Mobile Bay
A Hurricane Warning is in effect for:
– Morgan City, Louisiana to the Navarre, Florida
– Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas including metropolitan New Orleans
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for:
– East of Navarre, Florida to Indian Pass, Florida
On the current NHC forecast track, the center of Sally will move near the coast of southeastern Louisiana tonight and Tuesday, September 15, and make landfall in the hurricane warning area late Tuesday or Wednesday.
According to the NHC, it is too early to determine where Sally’s center will move onshore given the uncertainty in the timing and location of Sally’s northward turn near the central Gulf Coast. Users should not focus on the details of the official forecast track, since NHC’s average forecast error at 36 to 48 hours is around 95 – 130 km (60 to 80 miles), and dangerous storm surge, rainfall, and wind hazards will extend well away from the center.
An extremely dangerous and life-threatening storm surge is expected for areas outside the southeastern Louisiana Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System from Port Fourchon, Louisiana, to the Okaloosa/Walton County Line in the Florida Panhandle, where a Storm Surge Warning is in effect. Residents in these areas should follow any advice given by local officials.
Hurricane conditions are expected late tonight or early Tuesday within the Hurricane Warning area in southeastern Louisiana and are expected by late Tuesday and Tuesday night within the Hurricane Warning area along the Mississippi and Alabama coastlines and the western Florida Panhandle. Tropical storm conditions are likely to begin this evening in these areas and preparations should be rushed to completion.
Life-threatening flash flooding is likely, as well as widespread minor to isolated major flooding, on area rivers along and just inland of the Central Gulf Coast. Significant flash and urban flooding, as well as widespread minor to moderate river flooding, is likely across Mississippi and Alabama through the middle of the week. Flooding impacts are expected to spread farther across the Southeast through the week. Sally could continue to produce flash flooding across the Florida peninsula and prolong existing minor river flooding across west-central Florida through today.
Storm surge is already causing flooding along the shores of Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana, AccuWeather reports. “Some areas could remain underwater for an extended period of time as storm surge continues and heavy, flooding rainfall moves inland.”
Sally is expected to be a slow-moving system as it approaches land, producing 200 – 400 mm (8 to 16 inches) of rainfall with isolated amounts of 600 mm (24 inches) over portions of the central Gulf Coast from the western Florida Panhandle to far southeast Louisiana through the middle of the week.
“Life-threatening flash flooding is likely,” NHC warns. “In addition, this rainfall will likely lead to widespread minor to isolated major flooding on area rivers.”
As Sally moves in farther inland early Wednesday, and tracks across the Southeast, 100 – 200 mm (4 to 8 inches) of rain is expected, with isolated maximum amounts of 300 mm (12 inches), across portions of eastern Mississippi, central Alabama, northern Georgia and the western Carolinas.
Significant flash and urban flooding is likely, as well as widespread minor to moderate flooding on some rivers.
Outer bands of Sally are expected to produce additional rainfall of 25 – 75 mm (1 to 3 inches) across the Florida peninsula today, September 14. This rainfall may produce flash and urban flooding and prolong high flows and ongoing minor flooding on rivers across central Florida.
A tornado or two are possible through tonight over coastal areas of the Florida Panhandle and southern Alabama.
The threat of tornadoes is expected to increase on Tuesday in these areas, as well as over parts of southern Mississippi and extreme southeast Louisiana.

. . . “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).

. . . “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).
