Extreme Wildfires Update

The New Normal, Another Day … More Disasters; Dozens of homes burned in some 250 (5×5) fires throughout Israel over weekend. 13 large fires.

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.

The New Normal, Another Day … More Disasters; Dozens of homes burned in some 250 (5) fires throughout Israel over weekend. 13 large fires.

Blazes that forced thousands to flee their homes largely brought under control Saturday; officials say residents not in danger ‘at this stage’ as majority allowed to return

By TOI STAFF October 10, 2020

Dozens of homes were destroyed as some 250 fires raged throughout the country, authorities said Saturday.

Some 20 homes were burned on Friday in Nof Hagalil in northern Israel, while several more went up in flames in the West Bank settlement of Kfar HaOranim. Two people were treated by paramedics for smoke inhalation

Fire and Rescue Commissioner Dedi Simchi told Kan news that teams “faced some 250 fires throughout the country, with 13 very large fires.”

Some 10,000 people were forced to flee their homes due to the various fires. Most have since returned home. Engineers performed checks on some damaged homes.

Firefighters continued on Saturday morning to battle a few fires, but blazes were largely brought under control.

Channel 12 news reported that there were still fires burning in the Churchill Forest near the town on Saturday morning and that 3,000 dunams (741 acres) had been destroyed so far.

Northern firefighter commander Nizar Fares said that six firefighting planes had resumed operations in the area.

“Firefighters continue to stubbornly fight to stop the spread of fire and protect the residents of Nof Hagalil and their homes,” said Fares. “Overnight we prepared for the continuation of the campaign, and at this stage the residents are not in any danger. The firefighting efforts will continue throughout the day. I call on the public to obey the instructions of the emergency bodies.”

Kan reported an additional fire broke out in the Mount Dov region, near the Lebanon border.

Simchi said investigators were starting to probe the cause of the fires, but that many were likely caused by human factors.

“We don’t yet know if it was negligence or deliberate,” he said.

The Ynet news site quoted unnamed security officials as saying that there was concern some of the fires in the West Bank may have been deliberately started by Palestinians. Palestinian arson was widely blamed for many of the fires in 2016, when a series of brushfires burned tens of thousands of acres, wounded some 200 people, and damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes. Ultimately no one was prosecuted for nationalistically-motivated arson.

Palestinian sources said several blazes were caused by IDF smoke and tear gas canisters fired during clashes with Palestinian protesters.

Wildfires also hit other Middle East countries amid an intense heatwave in the region.

One of the hardest hit countries is war-torn Syria where fires have killed two people and left dozens suffering from breathing problems over the past two days. The wildfires also burnt wide areas of forests, mostly in the central province of Homs and the coastal province of Latakia

In Lebanon, firefighters backed by army helicopters fought fires in the country’s north, center and south. A big fire in the southern village of Bater burnt hundreds of pine trees and was getting close to homes when it was put under control.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday held urgent consultations on the fires, saying that he would call for international assistance if the situation deteriorated.

“I received updates from the fire department chief and I asked him to ensure that we are using all our resources, and if need be, consider international assistance,” Netanyahu tweeted after meeting with internal security, police and National Security Council officials.

A statement from his office said that he was assured that currently, the situation was under control and that firefighters were being assisted by the police and the Israel Defense Force’s Home Front Command.

Israel formed a regional fire-fighting alliance with Cyprus and Greece after Israel was devastated by the 2016 fires.

The country was forced to ask allies to send firefighting planes and other equipment and personnel to help fight the blazes, that were also largely caused by a late fall heatwave with dry weather and strong winds.

As well as the blaze near Nof Hagalil, firefighters also battled large fires on Friday near six other communities, with thousands more people being evacuated.

In the West Bank settlement of Kfar HaOranim near the city of Modiin, several houses were destroyed before firefighters managed to gain control of the blaze.

The IDF said that dozens of its soldiers had been dispatched to the Mevo Dotan settlement along with the central town of Bat Hefer to assist in the evacuation of families whose homes were in the line of fire.

Another large fire was reported near Umm al-Qutuf, east of Hadera. Some 13 firefighting teams were at the scene and working to douse the flames. Residents were evacuated from the Arab village, as well as from nearby Kafr Qara and Ar’ara.

Blazes had also broken out near the towns of Hadera, Emek Hefer, Nazareth, Umm al-Qutuf, Fureidis, Margaliot and Lapidot.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, the Palestinian Civil Defense was fighting 60 fires across areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority, the agency said.

A rare October heatwave ramped up over Israel on Thursday, bringing blazing temperatures to many parts of the country as an alarmingly hot summer and fall continued to grip the region.

Night Watchman Note; We are to ‘be watchful’ in helping to understand today’s events as related to biblical prophecy. That is what ‘watchmen or women’ do. Jesus made clear that when He actually does come for His disciples, His wise and faithful servants would be aware of the time because they would be watching. They would know the season of the times by WATCHING those things ‘coming to pass or occurring’ as Jesus said they would. The ‘BENCHMARK SIGN(s)’ always point towards Israel / Jacob. God’s prophetic timepiece. The FALSE PEACE COVENANT confirmed by the Prince/Beast among MENA (the many) is the ‘key sign’ of the times or the season of the times. Yes, we are in that period. The Prince/Beast will likely confirm and enhance the current ‘normalization’ agreement with Jacob to be a ‘peace’ agreement, to be extended to 7 years from the current 5 years, to include some agreement permitting the rebuilding of the third temple in exchange for ‘some portion of Jerusalem.’ The current ‘investment’ period for the Palestinians stands at five (5) years. This will likely occur AFTER the Bride, Disciples or True Church is removed from the earth via the Rapture / Harpazo / Redemption / ‘Twinkling’.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

. . . “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).

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).

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?
