BP Oil Spill
and Bible Prophecy
The BP oil spill is a major item in the news recently - as it should be. This is extremely serious and, as the first story in this newsletter indicates, could yet get much worse. I am reminded of this verse in Revelation:
"And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." (Rev 11:18)

The BP Oil Spill
Surely we are seeing some destruction happening here. Also, perhaps this indicates how another prophecy could be fulfilled if a similar incident was to happen on a larger scale or at multiple sites:
"And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea." (Rev 16:3)
The blood of a dead man is not so much red as it is anoxic. The red color is from the oxygen in live, oxygenated blood. When dead, there will be no oxygen in the blood. In a sea with no oxygen in the water everything would quickly die.
There are a couple of thoughts on the BP oil spill. Just before we get to the gulf oil spill story and others a reminder that the news items I share are just items I picked that I thought were of interest. It does not mean that I agree with the stories or any opinions of the readers.
Israeli Rabbis Say Current Events Could Lead To 'War of Gog and Magog'
By: Joel Rosenberg / Joel Rosenberg's Weblog.com / June 3, 2010
"The Rabbinical Council of Judea and Samaria issued a statement Thursday in which it said that the results of the incident in which Israel intercepted a flotilla trying to break the naval blockade of Gaza seem like the Biblical description of 'the beginning of the Gog and Magog process where the world is against us, but which ends with the third and final redemption....'"

Israel War Game Rehearses 'Iran Attack'
Press TV.com / May 28, 2010
"Israel has joined forces with Greece to conduct an aerial maneuver to practice long-range missions and mid-air fueling, a report says.
"The war game codenamed 'MINOAS 2010', is carried out at a Greek air base in Souda Bay, on the island of Crete, Haaretz reported.
"During the exercise, the Israeli Air Force tested 10 planes including five F-15I Rams and five F16I Sufas. The planes are designed for long-range attacks."
Israeli CH-53 helicopters were also used in the exercise, practicing rescue missions for pilots, while an IAF Boeing took part in aerial refueling.
According to the report, Greece, which possesses the sophisticated S-300 anti-missile system -- which Iran is interested in acquiring, participated in the maneuver with fifteen F16s.
The report comes as Israel continues to threaten Iran with a military strike to target the country's nuclear infrastructure.
Tehran, a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), says its nuclear activities are aimed at the civilian applications of the technology.
Israel, the possessor of the Middle East's sole nuclear arsenal, alleges that the Tehran government is bent on starting a "nuclear war."
The maneuver is coinciding with efforts in Washington to win international support to push for more sanctions against Iran.
US-led Armada Secretly Drilled Bombing Iranian Targets, Missile Defense With Israel
DEBKAfile.com / June 21, 2010
"The armada of 10 US warships plus an Israeli and German battle vessel each, which transited the Suez Canal Friday, June 18, has reached the Persian Gulf, debkafile's military sources report.
"But first, from June 6 through June 10, the USS Harry S. Truman carrier Strike Group was deployed 50 miles off the shore of southwestern Israel, secretly drilling the interception of incoming Iranian, Syrian and Hizballah missiles and rockets against US and Israeli targets in the Middle East.
"The exercise was prompted by rising tensions from Syria's deployment of advanced Scud missiles for Hizballah on its border with Lebanon. It took place not far from the spot where Israeli commandos subsequently raided the Turkish Mavi Marmara on May 31."
Saudi Arabia Gives Israel Clear Skies To Attack Iranian Nuclear Sites
By: Hugh Tomlinson / TIMESONLINE.com / June 12, 2010
"Saudi Arabia has conducted tests to stand down its air defences to enable Israeli jets to make a bombing raid on Iran's nuclear facilities, The Times can reveal.
"To ensure the Israeli bombers pass unmolested, Riyadh has carried out tests to make certain its own jets are not scrambled and missile defence systems not activated. Once the Israelis are through, the kingdom's air defences will return to full alert."
Wall Street Fearless As Iran Declares War

"With a grave threat to world peace and stability emerging in yesterday's news, there was the Dow Average, up 72 points at the time, as oblivious to reality as a swami who's been in a trance for a week. Concerning the magnitude of the threat, don't take our word for it. Here's a link to an article that makes clear how serious Iran is about running Israel's blockade. Ahmadinejad has pledged warships and submarines to back up Turkey's fleet, which at this moment is steaming toward Gaza."

Warning Signs Of Full Spectrum Collapse Are Everywhere
By: Giordano Bruno / Chris Martenson.com / May 31, 2010
"Every single action by China in the past two years indicates that they are not only preparing to break with the U.S., but that they are ready to do so today if they preferred. The bottom line is this: China wants reserve status for the Yuan, and China wants the Greenback replaced as the world reserve currency. When China de-pegs the Yuan from the Dollar, they will begin dumping whatever U.S. treasuries they still hold, allowing the Yuan to strengthen and the Dollar to fall. This will be a disaster for the U.S. economy, and it could conceivably happen before the end of this year."
