Revelation - The Second Trumpet - BP Oil Disaster

End Times NOW
The Book of Revelation 8:8 - 8:9
The Second Trumpet

"The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed."


               HANDOUT -         GULF OF MEXICO - APRIL 21:  Fire boats battle a fire at the off shore oil rig Deepwater Horizon April 21, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana. Multiple Coast Guard helicopters, planes and cutters responded to rescue the Deepwater Horizons 126 person crew after an explosion and fire caused the crew to evacuate.

"The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire".

The above photo shows the burning BP offshore oil rig 'Deepwater Horizon' taken on April 21, 2010. The boats shown are not fireboats, of the type that you might see in the harbor of New York City. These are ocean going oil rig supply/support ships that have water cannons mounted on them. The are massive ships several stories high and are much smaller then the burning offshore oil rig, whose size and flames and dark smoke rise maybe 50 or even 75 stories above the water. Saint John, who was the youngest of the Apostles, had his visions of the End Times when he was very old. If you understand that he was a man born about 2,000 years ago, in an age with hardly no technology, and was seeing visions of the far future and was attempting to describe what he saw, the above photo and his words 'fit' perfectly.

"...was thrown into the sea."

This is a photo of the giant BP offshore oil rig 'Deepwater Horizon' falling into the sea. Almost as if an artificial mountain, at sea, was thrown into the sea.

The color of the oil "spill" does look like blood, and someone who never saw crude oil upon the sea might well describe it as such.

I was thinking the same thing... but, what about the 1/3 of ships destroyed? I can't figure that one out.

Big Fan of your page and want to say thank you for all the information you post everyday ... But i had a question has anyone looked at how this could affect eveaporation rates of the water in the Gulf and how it could affect rainfall througt the eastern seaboard? Just wondering your thought?

Lord Stirling said...

One-third of the ships destroyed....this event is NOT over! It is like a very slow super massive train wreck.

Evaporation rates....I expect that the Southern and maybe Midwest sections of the USA will be the first to see reduced rainfall due to seriously reduced evaporation. I am very concerned with what happens if it stops or slows down the Gulf Stream....UK and much of Europe could go into a deep freeze.

Pray!

Will you please stop telling anyone to nuke this mess. Consider the unintended consequences which may result. Tectonic plates are unstable in the area. It could also split the N. A. continent in two (ala Edgar Cayce) by traveling up the Miss. river valley. It also could release all the oil at once, in a single event. Imagine the mess that would make.
It's just a very bad idea whose time should never come.
No doubt the nutso destructos in our (I hesitate to call it a) government[more like a bunch of mafia thugs] are probably lining this bad idea up all ready. Please don't encourage this particular lunacy.
Remember the consequences are not just to te USA, but all countries in our hemisphere.
You are right... everybody better start prayin'.Only God Himself can help us now. And He probably made this happen...or at least let it happen.

"Will you please stop...."

You do not understand nuclear weapons. No one, myself included, is suggesting the use of a really massive nuclear device. I am suggesting using a small nuclear device to move sufficient soil to quickly collapse the tubing for several hundred feet and thereby capping the gusher. This has been done before successfully. It would not do any of the things that you suggest.

Im sure this is in the book of revelation. That means we can read and try to understand the next trumpet before it actually happens. And i agree with the reduced evaporation rates leading to a drought. Doesn't it say something about a drought in revelation? Anyways i live in the dallas, texas area so i could possibly be affected by this.

1/3 of the ships destroyed. Could refer to the fishing fleet. If the fish are gone, then the ships are effectively "destroyed" in the sense they never leave port because there is no reason to go out any more.

Looks like Kim Jong Ill may send the third trumpet over the great lakes region of the USA. The Korean war anniversary is 60 years old in june and these sort of people seem to like to celebrate! If we get nuked soon and our water supply is disrupted, then we can be certain Jesus Christ is coming soon! Read the bible and see that many prophets said, IMEDIATLY FOLLOWING THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS, The sun would be darkened and the moon turned to blood

Julie said...

I was led to this scripture today and decided to google it with oil spill... It seems to fit but the first trumpet hasn't happened or did I miss something?
7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Maria said...

"Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man;and every living creature in the sea died." (Revelation 16:3)

Samantha said...

Could the first trumpet not be the Volcano in Iceland?
Revelation 8 v 7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

the mountain falling into the sea would be more likely an asteroid hit in the ocean which would kill lots of life AND ships.

lets not forget that other verses in the bible.

"the powers in space will be driven from their courses...and the stars will fall to the earth"

Anonymous said...

also lets not forget that other verse that talks of the moon and the sun wont give their light.

thats exactly what would happen from if a huge asteroid it. the dust it would create would blanket the earth.

Jeanette Jarmon said...

i see that John's vision in the Bible could be the big rig falling, the sea red and all. I looked up how many ships are in the world today; 55,000. already there are over 1100 ships working out there as of 5/27/2010. Many countries are offering their help. The sea is global; this catastrophe is global. Many more ships will get involved as the spill grows and goes around the world. Fire out there, explosions, who knows how horrific this can get. God does, He loves us, and does not want us to fear if we have faith in Him and try to obey Him. The Word is Truth. Times will get worse. But take one day at the time and be in a state of Praise and obey what to do today.

A few days ago, I saw a photo published on Yahoo from this environmental disaster. It was someone's hands that had been dipped into the sea's waters affected by the spill. Indeed they looked like blood-covered hands. I'm not very religious anymore, but some parts of the bible are deeply ingrained in my head. It was the first time I thought about the book of Revelations in connection to our days.

Then I read the scripture about the first trumpet and recalled the volcano in Iceland and all the wildfires in the news recently. I don't think that the damage is immediate. If it were, our sense of urgency might be awakened.

About 1/3rd of the ships destroyed. What if destroyed simply meant that they are out of business. 1/3rd could simply mean that this disaster has crippled that many ships from working because of the seas being shut down for fishing.

Anonymous said...

Fishermen are being paid up to 3,000 dollars a day to help with the cleanup. When I heard about it, I wondered what that might do to their engines.

Bopp said...

Hello all. Please understand that Revelation can be intrepreted by looking at other instances in Scripture to help us understand the trumpets. And how God is directly involved in each of them.

The plagues in Egypt are a great example. Several of them parallel the trumpets of Revelation.

Please focus on two overarching themes of Scripture when you look at current events and read the Bible. First and foremost, God's judgment (which is what we are talking about) is SWIFT AND the consequences are IMMEDIATE. Second, there is absolutely no doubt about the source of the judgment when it is from God.

I am a God fearing man. And I don't think this current catastrophe meets the criteria of a trumpet. This was caused by man. It is devestating, but I don't think this a trumpet call.

Let me also say, I do believe this could be leading up to end times. When God's judgment is unleashed, it will be unmistakable.

what if the first trumpet talks of 9/11 (The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth) and in last decade there has been a huge amount of wildfires (and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.)

We have solar and lunar eclipses coming up that are on Jewish Holy Days....very significant!

..." four lunar eclipses and two solar eclipses in the Sabbatical Year of 2014 and 2015. Also, he noticed that they all appear on Jewish Holy Days! "

If you beleive the Bible to be a literal interpretation of events as I do, the events must be in order. ie., Six actual days of creation, 40 years in wilderness, 3 days in the tomb... So far, a Third of the trees on the "Earth" would need to be burned up. The first trumpet has not likely sounded yet. If so, hopefully we would have recognized it. If we don't beleive the Bible to be litteral, then there isn't much in there to beleive.

1/3 of shipping industry could be destroyed!

Anonymous said...

The way that the 1/3 of ships being destroyed prophecy can easily be fulfulled is by a methane explosion. This oil contains 40 percent methane and scientists have said the ocean floor at the Deepwater Horizon site has swollen like a volcano getting ready to explode. If this happens, every ship, boat and oil rig on in the Gulf will sink instantly. Another interesting thing to consider is that the flower-like symbol on BP's logo is Wormwood. The Bible says that a star called Wormwood will poison all the lakes, rivers and streams. But I also wonder about the timing of this as a follower of Christ I really believe His Revelation prophecies will be in numerical order, just like His 10 plagues on Egypt were all in numerical order. His Word says the "He is the same yesterday, today and forever." (Hebrews) Anyway, these are just my observations. At any rate, I'm doing what He said in Luke 21:36 and "praying always that I might be found worthy to escape all these things that are coming to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man." (Who is at the right hand of God IN HEAVEN!)

As far as the ships being destroyed, all fiberglass vessels (most of the fishing fleet) has to be destroyed, BP has acknowledged that hydrocarbons in the crude cannot be cleaned satisfactorily from the hull and destruction post incident is mandatory for all FG vessels in the VOO program. Pray that it isn't referring to a hurricane, we are early in the season and the water is one of the hottest on record, the oil raises the water temp. It is Hot.

The water column is being poisoned by the use of dispersant, it dissolves the toxins into the water column,they are no longer in suspension, it can only be removed by superoxides such as o3 or KO2 or by an act of god. The subsurface water is turning black in areas, midday dives are like late evening or night dives. Fish kills will be next with no intervention. These subsurface plumes are mixing with the loop current and taking off in the gulf stream, that goes around Fla.almost to the Artic.

Where the Miss. meets the Gulf is the spawning grounds for many Gulf and Atlantic pelagic and demersal species of fish. The spawn bunch into the sargassum riding the rip currents, the oil rides the rip as well mixing with the sargassum and killing all. We probably lost 1/3 of next years babies already.

My guardian told that we would have a toxic spill in the Gulf and she needed my help. She told me this April 15th.

I think this is about prayer and getting into the spiritual realm. So pray for our Gulf and to protect our animals. Pray for specifics, I know this works. If we let be the 2nd trumpet then it shall be. But with enough prayers there will be intervention.

The BP disaster isn't over..
when the huge methane gas bubble breaks forth from the sea-bed, it will be like a volcano erupting at 50 tons psi - the gas it releases will sink all the ships and drilling rigs in the region will sink instantaneously and a supersonic tsunami 150-200 ft tall will be unleashed which will inundate Florida. So there's the part about 1/3 of the ship.

I was wondering if the reference to one third of the ships may be the destruction of the fishing industry? The boats are not destroyed but the purpose of having one is...

this is scary the first was the 3/4 of pants destroyed now the oil spill for 2nd then 3rd satillite falls....its coming.

Unknown said...

1/3rd of the ships were not destroyed.
1/3rd of the sea did not turn to blood.
1/3rd of the sea creatures did not die.
If the methane gas well exploded it would have created a tsunami that would have crossed Florida.
If the Well exploded it would release its entire reservoir of oil turning the Gulf and the Atlantic to "Blood."
What has occurred to date doe not fulfill the 2nd Trumpet.
However,I am anticipating its sounding and when it blows it is a real game changer for Planet Earth.

Ok I can see this as the second trumpet, it's not yet completed. A third of the ships still have to be destroyed. But what was the first trumpet? A third of the trees and grass (and crops?) destroyed by fire?

Dhani Nel said...

Ok, I can see that this might be the second trumpet. Even though it's not yet complete, because a third of the ships are not yet destroyed. But what was the first trumpet? When did that happen? A third of all trees, plants (crops) were destroyed by fire? Where and when?
