Fulfillment of Bible prophecies: Shipwrecks 'kill up to 700 migrating to Europe

Whatever that's happening in the world is no more new to the true believers of Jesus. We have been told already in the Bible that in the last days many will run to and fro, and this would be because of the prevailing mayhem and chaos in the world. We are now at that time the Bible spoke about. "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Daniel 12:4

Today the UN refugees says that up to 700 migrants are feared drowned in a series of Shipwrecks off the coast of Libya in that just a few days back.

The migrants trying to reach Europe on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on a boat were unlucky as their both sank. Their boats was said to be unseaworthy vessels.

Spring weather has led to a surge of people attempting the perilous crossing from Africa to Europe. It is now a key migration route since a deal curbed numbers sailing to Greece.

Carlotta Sami, spokeswoman for UNHCR, gave details of the shipwrecks:
Almost 100 migrants are missing from a smugglers' boat which capsized on Wednesday. Horrifying pictures of the incident and its aftermath were filmed by rescuers.

About 550 other migrants are missing from a boat which overturned on Thursday morning after leaving the Libyan port of Sabratha on Wednesday. Survivors said the boat had no engine and was being towed by a second smuggling vessel.
In a third shipwreck on Friday, 135 people were rescued, 45 bodies pulled from the water and an unspecified number of others are missing.

Meanwhile, the MSF Sea group suggested the death toll from the last week could be as high as 900.
Survivors are being taken to the Italian ports of Taranto and Pozzallo.

Meanwhile, the Italian authorities have said the rescue of more than 600 migrants off Libya on Saturday by a flotilla of EU ships took the weekly total to at least 13,000.

Weekly boat rescues reach 13,00
The rescues were the latest by a multinational patrol of ships operating in the Mediterranean.

Carlotta Sami told the BBC: "[One of the most worrying things] is that all these ships have left together in just the last few days.. it has put rescuers under severe pressure."


Things definitely will get worst as times goes on. If you are there and you yet to surrender your life to Jesus, do it now before it is too late. Jesus is coming soon and all the troubles happening in the world today is a sign that the world is coming to an end.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."
