Skip to comments.End of the world: Bizarre desert snowfall 'Biblical end of times prophecy' believers claim
Posted on 01/19/2021 5:29:18 PM PST by nickcarraway
BIBLICAL believers have compared snow falling in two different deserts as a sign that the end times are near.
On Sunday, snow fell in Saudi Arabia’s Asir Province for the first time in 50 years. Temperatures in the area fell below -2C, according to local weather reports.
On the previous Wednesday, it also snowed in the Algerian town of Ain Sefra.
The region is commonly known as the Gateway to the Sahara.
It was the fourth consecutive winter to have snow fall or ice in the normally dry area.
Before the first snow and ice in Ain Sefra, it had been 37 years since the last snowfall.
Some people believe the unusual weather is a sign of the end times.
Israel365 News, which promotes “a fresh and Biblical perspective” on news, claimed that the prophet Isaiah talks frequently of deserts blooming in his explanation of the end of time.
Isaiah 35:1 said: "The arid desert shall be glad, The wilderness shall rejoice/And shall blossom like a rose.”
And Isaiah 43:19 said: "I am about to do something new/Even now it shall come to pass, Suddenly you shall perceive it/I will make a road through the wilderness/And rivers in the desert."
The unusual appearance of snow in normally dry climates and hot areas could be the “rivers in the desert” the prophet said indicates the end of the world, according to some Biblical prophecy believers.
But Isaiah also spoke of snow with a more optimistic perspective.
He said snow was a good omen that symbolises God’s forgiveness in 1:18.
In the verse, Hashem said: "Come, let us reach an understanding.
"Be your sins like crimson, They can turn snow-white/Be they red as dyed wool, They can become like fleece."
Many other places around the northern hemisphere have also had unusually cold weather this winter.
Areas in India, China and the United Arab Emirates have experienced rare cold blasts.
Delhi in India had its coldest weather in 119 years.
While Spain was reach a new record of low temperatures and had its worst snowstorm since 1971.
But climate change is said to be the reason behind the unusually cold winters in some areas of the world.
Increasing carbon levels cause global weather to become extreme which can bring hotter and colder temperatures.
In a study linking extreme winter weather in the US to Arctic temperatures, researchers said it was “no coincidence” that warmer weather in the Arctic causes colder weather in some parts of America.
Jennifer Francis, research professor of marine and coastal sciences in Rutgers’ School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, said: “Warm temperatures in the Arctic cause the jet stream to take these wild swings, and when it swings farther south, that causes cold air to reach farther south.
“These swings tend to hang around for a while, so the weather we have in the eastern United States, whether it’s cold or warm, tends to stay with us longer.”

Hey, don’t doubt! It came from the future!
(well, it’s January 20 over there...)
I thought the snow job here in America on November 3’rd was a Biblical sign of the end.
The Sun is cooling. Therefore, there is snow in the desert 🌵. Positive proof. Global cooling.
Not sure why they claim it is bizarre as it last snowed in one place 50 years ago and 37 in the other. Now, snow in Honolulu. That would be the end times.
The end of the world happens every 35 years?
It's the jet stream and it's called longitudinal flow.
And it's also called *weather*.
"Enders" are always looking to assign some meaning to events that they can tie to the tribulations. Snow? Sure, why not?
It does snow in Hawaii.
There is evan a ski club that has been featured in FR.
I don’t know about the end of the world but it’s the end of a free America.
Man, if only
If only 1 stinkin desert snowfall would bring it,
Id be on my knees begging for the snow
Yeah, but not in Honolulu. Up on the top of the volcanoes.
"in Ain Sefra, it had been 37 years since the last snowfall."
Yet the world didn't end then...
So for all those folks who have said “It’ll be a cold day in hell before I....” - there you go.
How can you be sure?
On a further note: in 1990 during Operation Desert Shield, it came a torrential downpour. All of our wheeled vehicles got stuck and it took tracked vehicles to get us moving through Saudi Arabia. The locals were scared to death thinking it was an omen or something.
Strange things happen every now and then.
This make total sense. If there is not snow everywhere, how can Hezekiah 2:6 be fulfilled in the end times, where Santa Claus travels around the planet putting THE MARK on everyone?
