Jesus, the Christ, the Only BEGOTTEN Son of the LIVING GOD, who CREATED all things, foretold years ago before his crucifixion, that intensifying earthquakes , famines, droughts, pestilences, and fearful sights and great sings from heaven, would be SIGNS occurring before his return back to earth to reign FOREVER as “KING of kings, and LORD of lords.”
Below are his prophesies found in the King James Version of the Holy Scriptures.
As it is written….
“Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” (Luke 21:7 – 11)
One of the “sorrows” we are experiencing is the extreme weather patterns, from the climate changes rapidly happening around the world creating massive destruction as never before, effecting human beings, beasts of the field, fish of the sea, and birds in the air, as the scientific data, government statistics, and media reports details below.

Current Natural Disasters Data
“According to the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED), 406 natural disasters and 234 technological disasters were reported worldwide in 2010.The number of natural disasters is close to the annual average for the decade (402) but shows an 11 per cent increase compared to the decade’s lowest value (367), reported for both 2008 and 2009.The number of technological disasters (234) is the decade’s second lowest…In 2010, the number of natural disasters (24) whose costs were equal to or greater than US$ 1 billion (2010 prices) is the highest of the decade, above the peak of 2005 (21) and far above the decade’s average (16). These 24 disasters accounted for almost 92 per cent of reported damages,” according to a report by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Socieities found here:http://www.ifrc.org/PageFiles/89755/Photos/307000-WDR-2011-FINAL-email-1.pdf

Global Warming Affects on Birds
“One global study estimates that 15–37% of species could be committed to extinction by 2050 as a consequence of climate change; another that each degree of warming could drive another 100-500 bird species extinct. Temperature rises beyond 2 °C are predicted to lead to catastrophic extinction rates, with few practical conservation options left…Over the past 50 years, humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than during any comparable period of time in human history, largely to meet rapidly growing demands for food, fresh water, timber, fibre and fuel. The result has been a substantial and largely irreversible loss in biodiversity. Climate change exacerbates these impacts,” according to this report by Birdlife International found here:http://www.birdlife.org/climate_change/impacts/biodiversity.html

“New Study Details Psychological Impacts of Climate Change”
“The impact of global climate change on Americans’ mental health has been largely ignored, even though the incidence of mental and social disorders will rise steeply if climate change is not curtailed, adding significant costs to the already $317 billion in annual mental health care expenditures and lost productivity in the U.S., concludes a major new study. “The greatest public costs could come from ignoring the effects,” the report concludes. Because extreme weather events and disasters will be more severe and more frequent, the U. S. will see a rise in illnesses like depressive and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress, substance abuse, suicide and violence,” according to the press release by the National Wildlife Federation on March 22, 2012, found here:http://www.nwf.org/News-and-Magazines/Media-Center/News-by-Topic/Global-Warming/2012/03-22-12-Global-Climate-Change-Will-Increase-Anxiety-Fear-and-Depression.aspx
The LORD Jesus, the Saviour of the World told his Disciples before his crucifixion that “…these are the beginnings of sorrows.”(Mark 13: 8)
All because we haven’t taken care of the earth, and everything therein, like the LORD GOD instructed!
As it is written…
“Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh. The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea. Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea. From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.” (Isaiah 24:1-23)
