Thoughts About the BP Oil Spill

Here are just 2 of the many photos we can find on the net showing us the oil in the Gulf. We also know from news reports that once this oil hits the fast moving ocean currents it can and will spread throughout the the world. Which leads me to this:

Revelation 8:8-9
And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died;

Now think hard about would John (who saw the visions of Revelation) describe 1. The oil rig sitting above water before it sunk while it was an inferno after the initial blast? A mountain burning with fire? Do we really have to be creative to link the two or are the similarities right in our face? I'm just asking....

How about "the sea became blood?" Have you looked at what that oil looks like in the seawater? Blood? Almost exactly like blood...I'm just observing here. Again, little creativity needed for a 1:1 likeness.

I'm also interested at the fact of how this disaster is being reported in the media. Today is a foreshadowing of how all the disasters we see coming in the book of Revelation will be reported and presented to the people of the world. No way "God" or the bible will be mentioned, even when the exact matches to the Word of God are slapping people across the face. CNN and MSN and FAUX news will be reporting everything but the exact match between what's happening and what the Word of God predicted would happen thousands of years ago.

Am I saying that we are witnessing Revelation 8 before our eyes? Nope. What I'm saying is its an exact dead on match and you decide what it means or doesn't mean. We all decide for ourselves.

What else do we see today in the news? Dead fish and birds and everything else that used to live in the water? Yep. Wow, what a coincidence huh? And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, as the dead sealife mounts and mounts and mounts, will we EVER hear anyone admit that "hey, did that old book predict this thousands of years ago? Yea, what's that book called again? Oh yea, the bible..." Oh yea....

The Word of God is accurate, down to the letter. Since no man has been found to stop the flow of oil into the gulf, and there are hundreds of millions of gallons left to come out of that great cavern in the earth into the sea, would it really be such a great mental leap to say that maybe a third of the life in the seas may die before our very eyes, like.....soon. Not a big stretch at all, but I'm not saying this will happen, again, I'm just observing. You can decide for yourself.

Watch this video and keep in mind the exact wording of Rev 8:8-9.

Another thought is that if we are seeing Rev 8 play out, what does that say about the book of Revelation itself? Accurate? Yea, but another insight would be..its not written chronologically...That leads us down an entire slew of questions and answers in itself. I'm not going there now.

I'm tired, the Lord is good and His Word, which is Jesus Christ, can be trusted to the uttermost. Keep the faith. Grace, peace and love.
