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 pains, growing in intensity, frequency, size and duration.

Very strong winds, tornadoes and violent hailstorms hit northern Greece late Wednesday, July 10, 2019 (local time). Such severe weather is extremely unusual in Greece for this time of year, meteorologist Klearxos Marousakis said.

According to Charalambos Steriadis, head of civil protection in northern Greece, it was an unprecedented phenomenon. 

Trees were uprooted and roofs collapsed after a ‘sudden and unexpected’ storm with wind gusts up to 100 km/h (62 mph) hit the area, claiming lives of 6 people and injuring more than 100.

Halkidiki, the worst-hit area, declared a state of emergency after the storm, lasting about 20 minutes, swept over the popular tourist destination.

A Czech couple died when strong winds blew their caravan away, a Russian man and his son were killed by a falling tree, and a woman from Romania and her child were killed by debris falling down from a building. Another person, a fisherman in his sixties, is missing.

According to the network of automatic meteorological stations of the National Observatory of Athens / Meteo.gr, the highest wind gusts were recorded in the areas: Klidi Viotia 101 km/h (62.7 mph), Stratoni Chalkidiki 100 km/h (62 mph), Amynteo, Nea Michaniona and Antikyra 85 km/h (53 mph), Makrinitsa 81 km/h (50 mph), Prespes and Nessonas Tempi 79 km/h (49 mph).

The storms were a part of severe weather outbreak over S-SE Europe and came after days of above 35 °C (95 °F) temperatures.
