Blood Red Waters: Vancouver, BC, Canada, July 2019

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.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada: The south coast has turned blood red. The inlet area around Vancouver Island is known as the Salish Sea.

The blood red phenomenon has been caused by an algae bloom. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada has halted shellfishing in the area. Eating shellfish from the area could be deadly. By the way, it is also illegal.

To the critic, just because you can explain it, does not mean it did not happen or it is not possible.

This is not the fulfillment of Revelation 8. We are not in the Tribulation. A massive asteroid did not strike an ocean. A third of sea life was not destroyed. The event on the western coast of Canada does not match the scope and scale described in Revelation 8. When Revelation 8 happens, it will dominate the news cycle globally.

Trend Update: Red Algae Bloom, Southwest Florida Coast, July 2018

Hosea 4:3 Therefore the land mourns, and all who dwell in it languish, and also the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens, and even the fish of the sea are taken away.

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.

July 31, 2018: The worst red algae bloom in over 10 years has hit the southwest coast of Florida. Around 4,000 dead fish were noted in the Sanibel Island beach area. The place stinks of death.

In this case, the algae is blue-green.

“But this can be misleading since they can be different colors,” Environmental Protection Agency.

The algae blooms or cyanobacteria are caused by human waste from neighborhoods and fertilizers from local farms. Nitrogen, phosphorus, and other nutrients act as fertilizer for the algae. This particular bloom has lasted for more than 10 months.

15 people have gone to local emergency room. Medical symptoms can include: coughing, itchy throat, watery eyes, difficulty breathing, rash, nausea, vomiting, and acute liver failure in severe cases.

For the record, we are not in the Tribulation. Nothing the size of a great, fiery mountain has been “thrown into the sea” in recent years. This event is not a third of the sea. A third of the sea creatures have not died. In this case, the Gulf has yet to turn blood red. The point is not to minimize the event, it is the southwest coast of Florida. But, it is not the scope and scale described in Revelation 8.

Scripture from both the Old Testament and New Testament says bigger events are coming…

 

Trend Update: Blood Red Lake, Melbourne, Australia, March 2017

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on March 9, 2017 by paulthepoke

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.

As of March 2017, we are not in the Tribulation. We need a Temple for the Antichrist to defile. Currently, we have neither. Besides, the event described above is after a deep impact asteroid. That has not happened either in the last day or so. Although frequency of fireballs and meteors has increased, that is a story for another day.

It has been awhile since there has been a blood red water event. Melbourne, Australia is the location for the most recent event. Here is a patch from Parks Victoria.

Westgate Park’s salt lake has turned pink again this season: a natural phenomenon in response to very high salt levels, high temperatures, sunlight and lack of rainfall. Algae growing in the salt crust at the bottom of the lake produces the red pigment (beta carotene) as part of its photosynthesis process and in response to the extremely high salt levels.

Enjoy the views, but we recommend you don’t come into contact with the water.
The lake is expected to return to its normal colour towards winter, when the weather cools and rainfall increases.

Trend Update: Blood Red Dead Sea, Shanxi Province, China, October 2016

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on October 2, 2016 by paulthepoke

Beijing, China, September 30, 2016 (Reuters) – A salt lake, known as China’s Dead Sea, has become a popular tourist attraction after turning red.

The lake in Shanxi province, west of Beijing, turns red annually when a naturally-occurring green algae in it changes color to protect itself from increased heat and light, China’s state television CCTV said.

http://www.aol.com/article/news/2016/09/30/chinas-dead-sea-turns-blood-red/21483930/

China’s had at least four blood red water events in the past four years.

2016 has been a busy year for blood red bodies of water. There was the blood red lagoon in Mexico in April, the blood red lake in Iran in July, a blood red river in North Dakota in August, and a blood red river in Russia in September.

We are not in the Tribulation. The order of events has a third of the sea becoming blood following a deep impact asteroid happening first.

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.

Trend Update: Blood Red Lake Urmia, Iran, July 2016

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , on July 27, 2016 by paulthepoke

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

The idea of blood red bodies of water takes place in the book of Revelation on a massive global scale. Initially in Revelation 8, a third of the sea is affected. Chapter 8 is in the middle third of events in the Tribulation. Eventually in Revelation 16, all the bodies of water are affected. Chapter 16 is in the last third of events in the seven year period.

As of July 2016, we are not in the Tribulation. There is no 10 nation federation. There is no third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. Israel does not have a peace deal with its neighbors. And there is no antichrist.

Lake Urmia has recently turned blood red. This is one lake in northwest Iran. It happens to be the largest lake in the Middle East.

The following is provided by:

http://www.citylab.com/weather/2016/07/the-middle-easts-biggest-lake-turns-blood-red/491465/

Lake Urmia’s red hue is attributed to a type of Halobacteriaceae, which are specialized bacteria that thrive in extremely salty conditions. Called halophiles (“salt-loving”), they produce pink-red pigments (bacterioruberins), and when found in abundance, the pigments from these bacteria can turn super-salty water pink or red. The presence of the red-pigmented halophiles, seen from space, marks an environment that has become extraordinarily saline.

Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. – Jesus

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

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on June 6, 2016 by paulthepoke

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.

Trend Update: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, May 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2016 by paulthepoke

Revelation 6:13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.

The verse in Revelation 6 is not an isolated reference to stars falling out of the sky. The concept is noted throughout Scripture. Falling stars are a piece of the puzzle indicating the Tribulation. Revelation 6:13 is the beginning of a progression. Eventually, all stars will be covered and not give off their light. There are other significant happenings with the sky, sun, and moon during this time. The focus of this post, the stars.

Jesus refers to falling stars in the Olivet Discourse. Christ is quoting the prophet Isaiah 34:4 in Mark 13:25 and Matthew 24:29. Note the consistency of the events in the verses. Isaiah, Jesus, and John are in complete agreement. The events: 1) sky rolled up like a scroll; 2) stars fall to earth.

Isaiah 34:4 And all the host of heaven will wear away, and the sky will be rolled up like a scroll; all their hosts will also wither away as a leaf withers from the vine, or as one withers from the fig tree.

Joel 3:15 The sun and moon grow dark and the stars lose their brightness.

Conditions deteriorate in Revelation 8:12 when a third of the heavenly bodies are affected. This is the fourth of the seven trumpets, the middle third of the Tribulation. Revelation 8:12 The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.

In Revelation 12:4a another third of the stars are removed from the sky. Revelation 12:4 And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth…His tail is in reference to the dragon or Satan.

Look into the night time sky. Eventually, there will be literal darkness upon the earth.

Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not flash forth their light; the sun will be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed its light.

Ezekiel 32:7-8 “And when I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud and the moon will not give its light. All the shining lights in the heavens I will darken over you and will set darkness on your land,” Declares the Lord GOD.

There have been recorded incidents of meteors and falling star over the past few years. Recently in May 2016, we have seen events in Mexico and the northeast part of the United States. Are these events increasing? Or are we more aware because of people who have video recorded such events?

The chart from NASA and the American Meteor Society will speak for itself.

The trend is increasing. What we are seeing now is nothing.

Planet earth is going to get stoned in a major way from its Creator.

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

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2016 by paulthepoke

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.

Trend Update: Dead Fish/Revelation, January 2015

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.

There is currently a trend around the world of mass amounts of aquatic life death. The following is from about 10 days of May 2014. These events are not local to a specific part of the world. It is occurring around the globe.

The point of this post is not to debate the cause of the phenomenon. Yes, human behavior is a likely consideration. The point is, this is occurring. The Book of Revelation says it is going to get worse during the seven year tribulation. The source of the ultimate cause is Heavenly.

Trend Update: Climate Change, November 2014

Job 38:22-23 “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of distress, for the day of war and battle?”

The context of the verses above is God talking to Job. God is explaining to Job He is in charge of the weather. In Chapter 38 of Job, God is explaining He created the heavens and earth. God gives a brief lesson in astrophysics. He created the animals. He rules the geography of planet Earth.

The timeline is the midpoint of the Tribulation (Matthew 24). The antichrist has claimed to be the Messiah in the Temple. Jesus gives a hint of the possible weather and prayer request in Matthew 24:20. “But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath.” See also Mark 13:14-18.

Look at the progressive phenomena in Revelation that takes place in regards to the intensity of the sun.

Revelation 8:12 The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.

Revelation 9:2 He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.

More smoke is released in Revelation 9:18 A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which proceeded out of their mouths.

The net result of more smoke being released is the sun’s rays will be blocked further. What happens if the sun is blocked? It is going to get colder. This is what happened when Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980. Mount Pinatubo (1991) in the Philippines produced ten times as much ash as Mount St. Helens. The result of all of the ash, steam, and chemicals being released into the air was global cooling.

Sulfur compounds in the atmosphere block out the light of the sun, cooling the Earth slightly. If sulfur compounds reach the stratosphere and are carried around the globe by winds, an eruption can mean violent and abrupt changes in the weather worldwide. (http://www.pbs.org/saf/1505/features/climatevolcano.htm)

Amos 5:20 Will not the day of the LORD be darkness instead of light, even gloom with no brightness in it?

Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not flash forth their light; the sun will be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed its light.

Today, we have been conditioned by the media, politicians, and scientists to believe we are causing and changing the weather. The Bible has something different to say. Psalm 147:16-17 He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes. He casts forth His ice as fragments; who can stand before His cold? According to the Bible, the trend during the course of the Tribulation is colder weather.

If you believe we are trending toward the Tribulation, you have a choice to consider. The issue is the weather. Man, led by Al Gore, says we are in a period of global warning and it is going to get worse. God says things are going to cool off during the Tribulation.

Who do you believe?
