I dont think the way we are to delve into the prophecy has been discussed... I wont be able to give a detailed presentation since that would take a
good amount of reading up on the subject but what I do know from the back of my mind is that the whole ocean turning red like blood is not ment in the
literal sence, instead its meant symbolically. We can use among others, Joseph, who was sold by his brothers in the first couple of books in the
bible, as an example of how a dream/vision should be explained. Now there are a couple of different visions mentioning the end of the world. A good
example is the statue King david saw made up of gold, silve, bronze, iron and the feet of iron mixed with cementlike stuff (supossed to indicate
Now something interesting the Prophet Daniel saw in a vision
Daniel 7:2-8 (New International Version)
2 Daniel said: "In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. 3 Four great beasts,
each different from the others, came up out of the sea.
4 "The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it
stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it.
5 "And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth
between its teeth. It was told, 'Get up and eat your fill of flesh!'
6 "After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a
bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.
7 "After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large
iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten
8 "While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were
uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that spoke boastfully.
4 wild beasts...Note how the last beast mentioned actually is 1 and the same as the beast mentioned in revelations. To know what they represent we
should look at another vison the prophet daniel received..
Daniel 8:3-8 (New International Version)
3 I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the
other but grew up later. 4 I watched the ram as he charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against him, and none
could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.
5 As I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat with a prominent horn between his eyes came from the west, crossing the whole earth without touching
the ground. 6 He came toward the two-horned ram I had seen standing beside the canal and charged at him in great rage. 7 I saw him attack the ram
furiously, striking the ram and shattering his two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against him; the goat knocked him to the ground and trampled
on him, and none could rescue the ram from his power. 8 The goat became very great, but at the height of his power his large horn was broken off, and
in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the four winds of heaven.
Ok.. some more animals... what do they represent?
Daniel 8:20-25 (New International Version)
20 The two-horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia. 21 The shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the large horn between his
eyes is the first king. 22 The four horns that replaced the one that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will emerge from his nation but will
not have the same power.
23 "In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise. 24 He will
become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty
men and the holy people. 25 He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and
take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.
Now remember.... 200 years after this was written down Alexander the Great died and his4 sons took over...
also read the following:
Daniel 7:17 (New International Version)
7 'The four great beasts are four kingdoms that will rise from the earth.
All in all this shows the bible uses animals to represent kingdoms or governments...
Now back to the bloodred water prohecy... Note that the 4th wild beast emerges from the sea:
1And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his
horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.
So we've established that the beast mentioned is in fact a government or kingdom... So what would the sea be?
Isaiah 17:12-13 (New International Version)
12 Oh, the raging of many nations— they rage like the raging sea! Oh, the uproar of the peoples— they roar like the roaring of great waters!
13 Although the peoples roar like the roar of surging waters, when he rebukes them they flee far away, driven before the wind like chaff on the hills,
like tumbleweed before a gale.
Isaiah 57:20 (New International Version)
20 But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud.
So the bible used the sea as a means to describe a mass of humans... this would make sence when remembering those beast emerging from the sea
represent kingdoms... putting it together those beasts representing governments emerge from human masses. afterall a government exists of humans.. so
what would dying the sea red like blood represent? well the exact explanation is VERY elaborate but it boils down to a third of the human masses
(christianity in particular) are no longer accepted by god and therefore dead in his eyes.
So in a nutshell this is what I believe the prophecy represents.. so the conclusion is that this oil spill is NOT the fullfilment of this prophecy
