I took Rev 8:8-9 to be talking about a volcanic mountain (not an underwater volcano since it is being 'cast into the sea') since verses 10-11 speak of the star called wormwood. I can see how it could also be seen as an asteroid or meteor but definitely not what we are seeing in the gulf. Another thing is that the incident in Rev 8:7 with the first angel has not yet taken place either.

Although the Gulf incident is of a large magnitude it is not as of the great magnitude spoken of in Revelations. As Jesus tells us of these things in Matthew 24:7 we will see many things happen that will lead up to the tribulation which is the events given in Revelations. We are seeing the makings of a great famine right now. With the food source in the Gulf being destroyed and the likelihood of crops being damaged by the rains off of the Gulf then the crops that were damaged in Idaho and in the state of Washington from the cold (29 counties in Washington have been declared a farming disaster area by their Governor). Then we have many crops throughout the central states on up through Canada that could not be planted soon enough this year to be able to have them ready by harvest time. There are also reports of similar crop failures throughout many other nations worldwide. Very little of this is being reported on in the media because they are concentrating on the Gulf region alone.

Even this famine will not be of the magnitude of things during the tribulation period.

Hi Brother Tom and Pastor Roger,

Brother Tom, I'm getting so much info from people down here. The websites are varied according to who they've subscribed to or websites they go on regularly. I'm not sure, but I believe Jack Kinsella is associated with Hal Lindsay. I don't know the forum he's talking about but would also like to check it out - when I find it I'll let you know. It sounds like information may be exchanged there everyday.
I'm hoping your both right and this isn't as bad as it seems. People down here are scared and leaving. Yesterday, my husband was ordering a hitch for the camper we bought. He was told that they've never ordered so many hitches before - everyone is leaving quietly, but sharing with them their concerns.
Since we have a 15 year old son we want to be cautious. We know we may have 9/11 'syndrome', but since that day, seeing what we saw, we are VERY cautious and try to check out anything. I don't know it that's good or bad, but that's what people from this area are doing also - I guess we fit in. We've seen independent studies on the air quality that go through the roof. We don't have much faith in the gov't either, and so we take things as we get them and have to decide for ourselves.
I do appreciate your take on those Scriptures - something to pray about and contemplate. Our problem is we're not getting any good news about the situation. We'd rather make fools of ourselves than to stay if these things are going to come to pass. One oil well in Saudi Arabia (or Russia - I'll have to look it up) burned for 4 years til they nuked it. That's alot of oil. There's alot here in the Gulf, too. And so we wait...

OK - I just searched and found 'The Omega Letter Discussion Forums', so that's where the previous info is coming from. I didn't sign up yet, but will check it out later.

PS - If you could remember my 89 year old mom in your prayers. She fell 2 weeks ago over a curb in a parking lot and was in the hospital. She's in a wheelchair because she twisted her leg, got 2 black eyes, nose, chin and neck (she fell mostly on her face) - she is getting much better, though and we could use prayer for her complete recovery. Praise the LORD - she didn't even break or fracture a bone!

Hello Sister Barbara,

I found the Omega Letter last night, but I haven't had a chance to check it out much. Most of it appears to be on a subscription basis of $10 a month, but they do have a free trial subscription. I have mixed emotions about this and would have to find out more.

I'm sorry to hear about your mother's accident and will keep her in my prayers. My mother is also 89, so I quickly understand your concerns. I give thanks that the injuries don't appear to be life-threatening or debilitating.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Oh good grief!!

Debka file, has quite a many times mis-quoted, and lead away from the facts Barbara. This is one of the reasons I don't use it while looking for news. I also do not trust Hal Lindsey, there have been quite a few times he has been proven to be a false prophet. From what little I read on "The Omega Letter" was a lot of garbage, and is leading to false prophecy.

Things maybe getting bad sister Barbara, but they are not even close to tribulation. Sister take it easy, pray, and let God take charge. That is what I did, when we had the Rodeo-Chedski fire here. And from what I saw, the forum is not worth the 10 dollars they are asking for membership. God gives us His word freely, and freely it should be given.

I will be keeping y'all in prayer and some extra prayer for your mom.

Sister, I did a quick check on "Oil spill in Bible prophecy", and there are many claiming this is a event, of prophecy. I will tell you right now, this is not a Bible Prophecy. These are charlatans, and false prophets claiming this is a event of the Bible.

Now can it be, God is punishing the gulf coast?? That may well be but, there are quite a few good Christians in the gulf. Trust in Jesus, for He is the only way out, Jesus tells us to look up, for there are warning signs before He comes. We need to look for in the heavens.

Thank you, Brothers, for your encouragement!

We will sit back and take it easy and let God take charge as you said, Shammu. The 'atmosphere' on this coast is very uneasy and contagious.

Also, thank you for your prayers - I just got back from my mom's. She's fiercly independent and won't go to a rehab facility so my sister and I are taking turns every day checking on her and bringing her food. She's a feisty one!!

I don't think that any of us on here are trying to say that this is not a very serious event. It definitely has it's potential of being very traumatic for all concerned and can definitely have an effect on the entire world for many years to come. As serious as it is and as serious as the potential of it becoming, I still agree with the others that this is not an event given in Revelations for the tribulation period. There are many serious and difficult times ahead of us all and that is even before the tribulation arrives. I also have to agree with Shammu on the Debka Files and on Hal Lindsey and associates.

Hello Sister Barbara,

That's pitiful and maddening, especially when you consider that the real cause is greed, corruption, intentional violation of drilling standards, and looking the other way by government officials responsible for enforcing standards and safety precautions. "Responsible" is a key word here, and nobody was. To make matters worse, nobody has been quick, effective, and responsible in the cleanup efforts. Our own government must share the blame with BP. Bluntly, this disaster should NOT have happened.

Sister Barbara, there are hard times coming for all Christians. Yes this is serious but, I think there will be worse to come but, keep your faith in the Lord. When I look out the window, I see burnt land. I also see where God is restoring the land, there are now plants coming up, trees, flowers, and the animals are coming back. As disastrous as the Rodeo-Chediski fire was, God works His wonders for all to see.

You are in my prayers sister, as well as a few other people I know (personally) in the Gulf area.

Hello Sister Barbara and All,

I echo Brother Bob's comments. Prayer is something we can all do for each other, and God loves to hear our prayers. Nobody knows when the start of the Tribulation Period will be, but the signs around the world make it appear to be near. There is great comfort in knowing that we are already in God's Hands for Eternity.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Hi All!

It's been awhile. Just had to let you know what's happening down here in Florida, especially for anyone who has relatives in Florida!

In July, my husband mowed our lawn. It was hot so he took a dip in the pool afterward to cool off - after which time he got very sick. We attributed this to the heat. Then the next week, he did the same - he got very sick again. We decided we would have the pool water tested. We couldn't find anyone in Florida that would do the extensive testing we needed. We had a Chemist recommended to us in Alabama. We got in touch and sent a sample of our pool water. We weren't prepared for the phone call we received this morning!!!

We got a call from Mobile, Ala. this morning. We were met with a very somber voice, the chemist, telling us that in our pool water was 50.3 parts per million, 2-butoxyethanol marker for @Corexit !!! Our water is full of Corexit!! Apparently they have been overspraying the land (we're 7 miles from the Gulf). It was the worst thing we could hear. We were then hooked up with lawyers who are handling this kind of problem for others like ourselves. We have to go for a battery of tests with toxicologists and neurologists and doctors.

This has been a rough day. We have a 15 year old son. We have been warning our neighbors. We wanted to warn anyone on the Gulf Coast that reads this - have your water tested. Get hard evidence of what is going on!!!!!

God Bless us all!!!

Hello Sister Barbara,

I didn't know what this was, so I did a search and found what might be a good article on this substance.

All I can say is WOW! - This is outrageous. It makes no sense at all to endanger people in this wild and irresponsible manner. My son has moved from Florida since I last conversed with you. He was offered a better job and moved to Raleigh, NC. Maybe this is more than just irresponsible - maybe it's on purpose.

Thank you so much, Brother Tom!

We're in a little shock right now! I'm so glad your son got out. I only just heard yesterday that Raleigh, NC had alot of work - anyway, they're definately better off where they are!Thank God for that!

We've been trying to save some money and go, this is complicating things all the more. We definately need your prayers, and we thank you!

This stuff is really bad and, I agree, they have no regard for any life - animal or human. We're in a mess now with these lab results and are waiting for more info from our new lawyers. They handle maritime cases and we now have become eligible! We never even thought of these kind of results!!

God Bless You,
Barbara
