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, fires, floods and droughts appear to be increasing at this time, possibly as warnings or judgments.
