Signs of the Times

Fearful Events

Including Weather, Asteroids, UFOs, ...


When describing the conditions that usher in the End Times, Jesus gave several categories of startling events.

Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven." (Luke 21:10-11)

Wars will increase. Seismic activity (earthquakes and volcanoes) will be worse. Famines and pestilences will be more prevalent. Fearful events and great signs from the heavens could include disastrous weather, modern threats, like asteroids, space junk, solar flares, and even UFO scares.

In the case of extreme weather, many observers agree that the scope and frequency of wind storms, floods and droughts appear to be increasing at this time, possibly as warnings or judgments.

Objects spotted in search for missing AirAsia flight as hope fades for passengers

Dec. 29, 2014 - Two spots in the Java Sea are being considered as possible crash sites for the AirAsia Flight 8501 that disappeared yesterday with 162 people on board. One area has floating debris and the other is an oil spill. Henry Bambang Soelistyo, Indonesia's search and rescue chief, said:
"Based on the coordinates that we know, the evaluation would be that any estimated crash position is in the sea, and that the hypothesis is the plane is at the bottom of the sea."

NASA: Asteroid Will Pass ‘Very Close’ To Earth On Sunday

Sept. 4, 2014 - An asteroid, designated 2014 RC, was only discovered a few days ago. On Sunday it will safely pass over New Zealand at a distance of about 25,000 miles.
On the night of Aug. 31, the asteroid was first discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Ariz., and was detected independently the next night by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope that is located in Hawaii.

Solar Flares Came Close to Wreaking Havoc on Earth's Technology
University of California, Berkeley research physicist Janet Luhmann revealed that the fierce solar storm that erupted on July 23, 2012 could have caused an estimated $2.6 trillion worth of damage to the Earth's electrical grids and modern technologies such as global positioning system satellites.
The bursts from the sun, called coronal mass ejections, carried southward magnetic fields and would have clashed with Earth's northward field, causing a shift in electrical currents that could have caused electrical transformers to burst into flames.
If the storm had occurred nine days earlier it would have aimed directly at Earth.
