Saudi Arabia’s deserts turn green around holy cities Mecca and Medina in ‘proof of Judgement Day prophecy’

THE dusty dunes of Saudi Arabia's deserts have miraculously turned from sand to grass confirming what some believe is a thousand-year-old prophecy.

Surprisingly heavy rainfall and flooding throughout December have led to the striking scenes of green desert hills surrounding the holy cities of Mecca and Medina.

Videos and photos circulating on social media show animals grazing on the grass which emerged out from the flooded lands in the west of the country.

Nature has taken over from once deathly-dry landscapes across Saudi Arabia to create blossoming green vegetation that can be seen from NASA satellite images.

For some excited locals, this is a clear sign that the Day of Judgement or the end of the world is coming.

The prophet Muhammad is reported to have said 1400 years ago that "the last hour will not come till... the land of Arabia turns into meadows and rivers".

Others have questioned just how unique this phenomenon is, citing recent times in the kingdom's history that luscious vegetation has sprouted in the desert.

Leo Meyer, director of ClimateContact, said: “You cannot necessarily say that one extreme rain shower in Saudi Arabia in December is due to climate change.

"After all, the weather is always erratic, but the chance of these kinds of extremes is increasing all over the world," he told Dutch newspaper, Postsen.

Mecca, known as the holiest city in Islam, has summers that average 41°C and a average monthly rainfall of only around 2-3 millimetres.

Is it an omen?

A divine sign? Lightning struck the head of Christ the Redeemer, the story behind the viral photo

More than 9 years have passed since a lightning struck the representative statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). This past February 10, a Brazilian photographer was fortunate enough to capture the moment when this natural phenomenon affected the face of this tourist attraction, considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Fernando Braga, who is characterized in his personal account in capturing photographs of this place, was the one who told how he managed to record this historic moment. To obtain this result of lightning striking the face of Christ the Redeemer, he had to shoot with his camera for more than three hours and choose among 500 results.

The photograph was taken at 18:55 this February 10 using a Nikon D800 with a 70-200 lens. "I hope you liked it. A big hug to everyone and sorry if by any chance I couldn't respond to all the comments and messages I received," he concluded.

I wasn't sure where to post this and I didn't want to make a new thread for it.

Most of us have heard the passage in Mathew 24:40:

Matthew 24:40-41​

New International Version​

40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other

Talking about the 'end times', Is this predicting "died suddenly"? There was some debate, and still may be, but some Christians believe that this is talking about the rapture - Saved people being lifted up to heaven before SHTF basically. Most articles I found online recently interpret the passage to mean people dropping dead. The C's have told us that the Book of Revelation was channeled to John by the lizzies. We know that Mathew was probably written with the intent to replace the gospel of Mark, an attempt to obfuscate the truth. Not all altruistic love and light in the gospels after Mark, and I wonder if Mark wishes he could do some editing.

Cosmic irony, coincidence?

Well, I had to read all of Chapter 24 to get the context. It does indeed seem to be describing these times. And as for the rapture or died suddenly it seems to me more like he is describing a culling.

reduction of a wild animal population by selective slaughter.

Which reminds me of this:

(Joe) Well, that was back then. Are there chips in any of the vaccines they're administering?

A: Yes

Q: (Joe) Which ones? Pfizer?

A: Selective and specific.

Q: (Joe) Can they have an influence on people's thoughts and behavior?

A: Not thoughts, but physiology.

Q: (L) So they don't need something like that for controlling thoughts. They've got other things for that. But they could probably put something in there that could trigger something that would go off in your body and like create an illness, or...

I remember pastors in country churches referencing Mattew 24:40-41 as 'the rapture'. From reading some mainstream Christian articles recently that idea is not as popular. Today it is interpreted as people dropping dead. The passage is describing a plague or pestilence, but 'culling' sounds pretty accurate too.

So not getting airlifted out of this mess, looks like a DIY thing after all.

edit: The C's did say something about rising up with wings of eagles, which sounds cool, so maybe there is a DIY option of sorts with maybe a little external help after some initiative is shown. :P
