Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill

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; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
The Scripture clearly refers here to a future cataclysmic catastrophe that will destroy the sea and all its inhabitants.
Vs. 8 refers to a great burning mountain cast into the sea.

Vs. 9 refers to a third of the sea turning into blood.

Does this disaster fit into prophecy? This may or may not be the exact fulfilment of this verse, but it certainly has to fit into the bigger prophetic picture and it gives us a great picture of what is to come.

A lot of speculation surrounds the true ability to stop this leak. The normal method to stop leaks has already been tried in the dubbed "top kill" operation. Now, BP is trying to do something that has never been done before--drill 2.5 miles under the ocean floor at the perfect angle in an effort to cut off the flow via relief wells. The mathematical precision required for this operation to succeed is enormous & if this fails, all signs point to a never ending flow of oil into the ocean for as long as the eye can see.

Reports also indicate that the seabed could very well be cracked and the pressure could cause an eruption worthy of a Tsunami. We are also venturing right into the middle of hurricane season which will delay the process of building the relief wells which need to be drilled ASAP to avoid further deterioration of the casings inside the leaking well. There are so many variables at the moment and all seem to point to further judgement and disaster. The original well could erode and implode causing rendering a fix of the leaky well impossible, the seabed could crack up due the pressure at any moment, a hurricane could bring the oil inland and wipe out our crops, and who knows what else lays in store.

One thing we know, we're in trouble. It's not ironic that this rig blew up on the same day as Israel's independance day, especially after the hard antagonistic anti-Israel rhetoric coming from this adminstration. Check out this video on the connection between Gen 12:2, Israel, & our disaster.

Yet with a million warnings signs telling us that a mega disastor loooms, the public remains ignorant and blinded by their own comfortable existance. What's worse is that we're now being controlled in an Orwellian nightmare where journalists have to fear for their lives if they should even take a picture of the carnage.

From Washington's Blog:

"BP is destroying the Gulf, because the government has supported BP without
regulating it in any meaningful way. BP is covering up its blunders by lowballing spill estimates, keeping reporters out of areas hardest hit by the oil (and see this, this, this and this) and threatening
to arrest them
if they try to take pictures, hiding dead
birds and other sealife
, telling cleanup workers they'll be fired if they use respirators, and using
dispersants to hide the amount of spilled oil (the dispersants are only worsening the damage caused by the spill). And the
government - despite some occasional tough talk - is letting BP do whatever it
wants. Indeed, some even speculate that BP has been given emergency powers
which supersede those of local police and other law

If this disaster is not the fulfillment of Rev 8:8-9, it is sure a good premonition of the big event.
