I just received an email from one of my very close blogging friends, Carla. She asked me if I receive the emails from Jan Markell’s site and pointed out to one email in particular. It was interesting in regards to the Mexican Oil Spill and current events concerning Israel.
Some scholars find coincidental links between key US political decisions regarding Israel and catastrophic events that happen. One such person is William Koenig who has written a book about it!
Anyway, I thought I would just share with you a snippet of what was in this email that Carla sent me…
Many Christians are beginning to wonder aloud whether we have entered into a period when God is visibly judging the earth. We now seem to be wildly careening from one crisis to another. At this writing, the latest big calamity — British Petroleum’s Gulf of Mexico oil spill — has brought endless media dramatization, wailing and gnashing of teeth. Meanwhile, secular power and authority is using this crisis to extend its grasp on global power. Lately, several authors have written books that chronicle the coincidental timing between the U.S. policy toward Israel and catastrophic events affecting our nation. Since Israeli statehood in 1948, we have been Israel’s chief guarantor and support. Now, we are pulling away, and the world seems to be trembling in response to this ominous transformation.
At the beginning of May, many students of Bible prophecy began to take note of the reddish color of the floating oil slick. It reminded them of blood. They then wondered aloud if prophecy had been fulfilled. Specifically, they recalled Revelation 16:3: 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. Some have speculated that if the undersea oil flow continues, all life in the sea could die.
On the other hand, we have survived such oil leaks before. Another similar one happened on a Mexican rig in the Gulf and also on an Arabian rig in the Persian Gulf. Still, there is something amazing about this latest disaster. It happened on April 20, the very day that the nation of Israel was celebrating its 62nd Independence Day, called Yom Ha’Atzmaut in Hebrew. On the very day that BP’s deepwater rig exploded, Israelis were commemorating their holiday with a national ceremony on Mount Herzl, along with national picnics, barbecues and celebration in general.

Now, I am not saying that this Mexican oil spill is THE Revelation prophecy being fulfilled before our very eyes, only time will tell. What I can see however, is HOW this prophecy may be fulfilled!
