Once again heat records are being shattered around the world, and this recent report coming out of the middle east is insane! According to the Washington Post, The temperature in Mitribah, Kuwait, surged Thursday to a blistering 129.2 degrees (54 Celsius). And on Friday in Basra, Iraq, the mercury soared to 129.0 degrees (53.9 Celsius). If confirmed, these incredible measurements would represent the two hottest temperatures ever recorded in the Eastern Hemisphere, according to Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters and weather historian Christopher Burt, who broke the news.

Earlier this week I wrote an article proposing the theory that humanity is accelerating towards The Plague of Heat recorded in the Book of Revelation, where humanity would be scorched by the sun as one of the judgments of God during the tribulation period.  The report today from the Middle East was even more profound as it may be possible that Mitribah’s 129.2-degree reading matches the hottest ever reliably measured anywhere in the world. Both Mitribah and Basra’s readings are likely the highest ever recorded outside of Death Valley, California. Death Valley currently holds the record for the world’s hottest temperature of 134.1 degrees (56.7 Celsius), set July 10, 1913.
