Trend Update: Pacific Ocean Death, Chile, South America, May 2016

Revelation 8:8-9 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.

The context of the verses is in the trumpet section of Revelation. The first seven signs were the seals. In the seventh seal, the seven trumpets are contained. Revelation 8:8-9 are verses regarding the second and third trumpets. The context is the middle third of the tribulation.

Revelation 16:3 The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea died.

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

The verses in Revelation 16 are late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. The scope and scale are all of the rivers and springs. Some scholars interpret the sea to mean the Mediterranean Sea and others take it to mean the oceans of the world. The two phenomena (blood red water and aquatic death) are noted to occur in the same context.

As of May 2016, we are not in the Tribulation. There is no Jewish Temple, no peace treaty, no 10 nation federation, and no antichrist.

The events below described in Chile, South America (May 2016) are not the fulfillment of Revelation 8:8-9 or Revelation 16:3-4. There was no mountain thrown into the ocean. That would have made headlines.

Stop the drama. We are not there. When the tribulation occurs, one will not have to ask the question.

Date line, May 2016, the coastline of Chile. The Pacific coast of Chile is approximately 2,500 miles in length. Whales, 40,000 tons of salmon, 8,000 tons of sardines, cuttlefish, and clam populations have washed ashore dead.

The majority of the death is blamed on El Nino. The warmer water has allowed for algae to grow. This has created a red tide of algae which releases toxins. The ocean has turned blood red as a result. Portuguese Man of War jellyfish are showing up in regions never seen before. Ecological factors and fish farming may be to blame.

The scope of this type of event is the largest yet.

The Bible says these events are going to happen. Just because these events can be explained does not make it go away.

  1. When I was in Israel, I saw the enormous solid-gold menorah that the Temple Institute has on display. It’s encased in glass near the Western Wall. I think that all of the “furnishings” for Temple have been made. That said, the question is when and “if” the Temple will be rebuilt. Does the Temple have to be completed for the anti-Christ to fulfill prophesy, or would a tent-like tabernacle be sufficient or–what if only the Ark of the Covenant is needed? Just saying.

    • That is an excellent question. I have been chasing vocabulary for “temple” this morning. Three Greek lexicons would technically agree with your statement regarding a tent-like structure or tent of meeting. The issue is the specific holy place or Holy of Holies within the greater structure. Your question just created a post(s).

    • You just opened a can of worms. There are at least three posts coming on the “temple/tent” idea. Teaser…More than the Ark alone is required. Great question.

      • I look forward to reading your posts 🙂

      • Thanks for the idea on the tabernacle/tent. Acts 15 quotes Amos 9 as well. Term “succot” is used in those verses in the original Hebrew. As you know, David never ruled with a temple present. He had a tent. Who knows, maybe a tent is compromise in a future peace treaty??? Grammar allows for either. Time will tell. Your insights are appreciated.

      • FYI, you have probably seen this. The Sanhedrin is comfortable with putting up a tent until they can build a stone, brick, mortar Temple. Tabernacle can go up overnight ready for service. Temple can be built and ready for service in 6 months. They are locked in and ready to go. Just need the political green light.

        Looks like tabernacle will be used until Temple is completed.

        If the tent goes up…are you okay with getting some props and having your name used in a post??? Just want to check.

        I hope this finds you well.

      • Yes, that would be fine. Thanks for the update on the Tabernacle/Temple!
