Trend Update: Dead Sea Life, Great Barrier Reef, Australia, June 2016

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.

The Bible states there will be a trend toward complete sea life death as stated in the book of Revelation. In chapter 8, 1/3 of the sea life dies and there is a progression toward Revelation 16 and complete sea life death.

Let me be clear. We are not in the tribulation.

The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is another example of a global trend of dying sea and fresh water creatures. The extent of death is on a massive scale. The smell of death is overwhelming per people on the scene. The majority of the damage is noted in the northern 1/3 of the reef. 22% of the coral has died. 93% of all reefs have experienced some level of bleaching.

The bleaching of the coral has been caused by increased water temperatures. Other factors include El Nino and changing global weather patterns, fertilizer, herbicides, and pollution.

The Great Barrier Reef is approximately 1,600 miles or 2,300 kilometers in length. It takes up an area approximately the size of Germany.

Half a billion people around the globe rely on the reef as a source of food. There are lost jobs as a result of the dying sea life. The reef brings in $6 billion a year in tourism. 70,000 jobs are filled with tourism demand. Jobs and revenue continue to decrease as a result.

Earlier in the year, the 2,500 mile coast of Chile experienced a similar event. This is not Uncle Joe’s farm pond and 15-20 dead catfish.
