Dead fish, King Harbor, CA
On Tuesday March 8, residents of Redondo Beach, CA woke to the incredible sight and over-whelming stench of hundreds of thousands of dead fish (primarily sardines) choking their local harbor. No one was exactly sure at the time as to what had caused their demise, but, it would be just one in a series of odd and similar events involving bird and fish deaths since the beginning of the year. Three days after the King Harbor incident a powerful and deadly earthquake struck the Honshu region of Japan killing thousands of people and leaving millions more displaced and in danger of radioactive fallout. Coincidence? If it is, then, the 100 Pilot Whales who died by stranding themselves on a beach in southern New Zealand just hours before the deadly Christchurch Earthquake was a very strange coincidence as well. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/2011/02/22/is-new-zealand-earthquake-linked-to-the-mysterious-deaths-of-more-than-100-pilot-whales-115875-22941618/
As most of you know, I like word studies and often find interesting connections to events through words. So I googled the word Sardines. Sardines to me, were the bony little fish my dad used to take in his lunch every now and then. Dripping in mustard sauce and oil, he would place them on a cracker, eating them right out of the can. He thought they were a fine treat and often tried to convince me of the same, needless to say, to this day, I remain unconvinced! Anyway, beyond “sardines in a can”, I didn’t know much! And, still don’t – for as soon as I went to Wikipedia, the first thing I read about sardines is that their name originated with the Mediterranean island of Sardis. After reading that, I knew I need read no further. I had found what I was looking for. Jesus had written a letter to the church at Sardis. All I wanted to do now, was read what he had said.
Revelation chapter 3:
To the Angel of the church of Sardis write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds and you have a reputation of being alive, but, you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of God. Remember what you have received and heard; obey it and repent. But, if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief and you will not know at what time I will come to you. You have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me dressed in white for they are worthy. He who overcomes will like them be dressed in white, I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. He who has an ear, let him hear ….”
Dead fish (Sardines) – King Harbor - Sendai (Sin-die ????) Makes one think, doesn’t it? Could it be that Jesus has given us a message in a fish to awaken us to our spiritual condition?
This Saturday March 19 will be a Supermoon. There are some that think this cosmic event could trigger another earthquake, volcanic activity or other natural disasters. According to a geologist interviewed by Neal Cavuto on Fox News, this may very well be the case. Thanks to Jo P for her post on Five Doves today regarding this interview, if you missed it, here’s the link- (takes a few moments to load, but, its at the top of the page) – http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/your-world-cavuto/index.html#/v/4586903/sign-of-california-quake-to-come/?playlist_id=86929
As you will see from the video, the Chilean earthquake, the New Zealand earthquake and the Japan earthquake progress around what is known as the Pacific Ring of Fire – if the pattern continues as follows, the Pacific West Coast could likely be the next region hit by a big quake. If that should happen, the devastation would be unthinkable. Bear in mind the March 11 earthquake in Japan came exactly one year after Japan badgered Israel in regard to the settlements on the West Bank and March 19 comes just about one full year as well from the verbal lashing Hillary Clinton gave Prime Minister Netanyahu over the same issue. In my opinion, the time for serious repentance is now! There may not be much time left.
Thank you to all of you who prayed for me and wished me well while I was away, I really appreciate it. Blessings to all of you!
And, as always, “Pray for the peace of Jersualem, they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6 Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus! Cindy
