Hurricane Lorenzo, thankfully churning away in the eastern Atlantic far from any shores, over the weekend still became historic.
When Lorenzo for a brief stint became a Category 5 hurricane over the weekend, smashing a record for the easternmost Atlantic hurricane to attain such a strong intensity.
Meteorologists have never recorded such a strong hurricane so far east in the Atlantic Ocean until now.
Lorenzo rapidly strengthened Saturday from Category 3 status with estimated maximum sustained winds of 115 mph to Category 5 status with winds of 160 mph just 12 hours later.
It was unlike anything in the record books so far east in the Atlantic Ocean, when this was by far the farthest east in the Atlantic Ocean any of the previous 35 Category 5 hurricanes have occurred in the records dating to the 1920s.
National Hurricane Center forecaster Eric Blake noted Lorenzo became a Category 5 hurricane almost 650 miles farther east than the previous easternmost Category 5 hurricane, Hugo in 1989.
Lorenzo also had the lowest pressure for a hurricane east of 50 degrees west longitude on record Saturday evening and had been a major hurricane for the longest period of time east of 45 degrees west longitude on record, according to Colorado State University tropical scientist Dr. Phil Klotzbach.
Lorenzo was the second Category 5 hurricane of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season and the sixth such top-end hurricane to form in the Atlantic Basin in a little less than three years, following Matthew, Irma, Maria, Michael and Dorian.
And Lorenzo, as an extremely powerful category 5 hurricane, became the strongest hurricane on record that far north and east in the Atlantic Ocean.
These historic storms we continue to see are signs of the Biblical prophecy foretold in Luke chapter 21:25 that foretells the intensification of weather in the Last Days.
These events and conditions happening now are signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
Preparing those Biblically born again into the Kingdom of God to be ready to escape all the things that will come to pass, in the wrath of the tribulation of Revelation prophecy that comes upon the world of disobedience, as the born again Church is not appointed unto wrath but instead to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
