Yangtze River runs blood red

We've seen a small rash of rivers or lakes turning red lately. Earlier this year the Beirut River turned red. No one knew why at first, but later they thought it was due to a factory that had illegally dumped red dye. Despite the fact that this is prophesied to happen, as per Revelation 16:4, it is not a prophetic fulfillment yet, because we are not in the prophesied time of Revelation. The Tribulation has not begun. But as precursors go, it's pretty eye-popping. As mysteries go, it is pretty interesting.

Two weeks ago a lake in France turned blood red.
"At first glance, it might look like a sign of the apocalypse - but scientists say the blood red lakes in southern France are actually a natural phenomenon. Camargue, France is a river delta where the Rhône meets the sea. The picturesque area is home to numerous salt flats, and it is this concentration of salt that will occasionally stain red the regions normally blue water."

So that time the culprit was salt.

A few days ago Lake Erie hadn't turned red but there was a massive fish die-off.

‘Something really wrong’ with fish die-off along Lake Erie: officials
"A strong sewage smell preceded scenes of dead fish littering the shores of Lake Erie this weekend and has residents wondering what caused the massive die-off, the president of the Rondeau Cottagers Association said Tuesday.  “This is a very substantial fish kill and there’s something really wrong to have a fish die off like this,” said Dr. David Colby, a cottager who is also the Chatham-Kent medical officer of health."

Officials aren't positive, as usual they say the "likely" cause was the fish were killed by "killed by a lack of oxygen caused when lake sediment was stirred up, the province reported Friday."

Oh. Ok.

"Water samples "do not show evidence of a manure spill or anything unusual in terms of contaminants," Ministry of Environment spokeswoman Kate Jordan told NBC News. Jordan said it wasn't known if the die-off was unprecedented, but that "it was a significant number -- tens of thousands. The fish were found along 25 miles of beach, with locals first coming across them on Monday.'"

Like that happens every day, sediment killing 25 miles worth of fish.

Here is the today's "river turning red" news--

Yangtze River Turns Red and Turns Up a Mystery
"For a river known as the "golden watercourse," red is a strange color to see. Yet that's the shade turning up in the Yangtze River and officials have no idea why. The red began appearing in the Yangtze, the longest and largest river in China and the third longest river in the world, yesterday near the city of Chongquing, where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River."

Remember, it is NOT a fulfillment of Revelation 16:4, not only because we have not been in the Tribulation for ten chapters, but also because when it does happen, a third of all the earth's rivers will turn to blood. And the verse says what it says, the waters will become blood. Not salt making it look like blood, not illegally dumped dye, but actual blood.

I'll be interested to see if the officials come up with a "likely" cause for why section of of Asia's longest river and the third longest river in the world turned blood red. It is freaking everyone out, and as well it should. I am glad it makes people think of the apocalypse, which should make them think of Jesus, which should make them think of judgment and sin. And then of repentance. I pray it makes them think on those things.

It may be a large environmental disaster, a huge detriment to the food chain, and a terrible accident or other natural disastrous event. But it is not Revelation. Yet.

  1. This is another one of the many natural disasters,calamities and signs that the Lord told us to watch for when his return was close at hand. The world tries to dismiss everything as just another biological or environmental reason and then proceed with life as though nothing ever happened. Believe me, the Lord is speaking loudly for those who know him. Get your lives in order and be ready for the Lord's return.

    1. I also believe it is a precursor, (not a fulfillment) whether God directly or environmental disaster. He is speaking loud and clear these days, as you said. Thanks also for the reminder to get ready for His return.

  2. With spiritual eyes it is plain to see. We are heading towards something that is in God's control. Natural diseasters, corrupt government, immoral behavioral acceptance, famine, pest, volience, ect.
    The other day I was reading about social security administration buying 175k hollow tip bullets! They claim its for the field agents. Other government agency are stocking up too. Clearly, they're preparing for worst case of an economic collapse.
    I am happy to know the Lord, which helps me maintain calmness. Like in the days of Noah, everyone is going about life, saying "it's going to get better". Not knowing we are in the end times. It's time to get into the ark. The ark is Jesus.

  3. I believe the precursor is Satan trying his best to fool everyone, so that when he turns up the unsaved will be fooled into thinking he is Jesus...except that he can't fool The Elect!

  4. Mr Blogger, let me ask you a question!
    If the phenmenon described it the book of revelation occurs, would your so called "officials" describe it as blood? Definitely not!
    As it were in the days of Jesus and his apostles.
    The so called "officials" then described him as a man with a demon and one that speaks blashpemy against God.
    My point is, look not to "officials" for answers, instead look to God.
    He only can explain both natural and spiritual occurence. God bless.

    2. I'm not sure what you mean, Anonymous, but God explained everything we need to know, it is contained in the bible. He wants a personal relationship with us, and He revealed who He is and what He desires of us.

  5. Mr Ejiro,

    It is NON-believers who seek truth from officials. The Believer seeks truth from the bible. When Revelation comes to life, the true believers who converted after the rapture will know and understand they are living out Jesus's prophetic truth. At the last three and a half years, the NON-believer will seek answers from government, that government being represented by the antichrist.

    I apologize for making my thought on that unclear.

  6. These occurrences are in fact warnings, not for the end of times but to let us know that the earth is about to expand, the warning is for Yellowstone - about to blow along with ALL other volcanoes thus increasing earthquakes and surface tension within the tectonic plates. The earth must expand to create more land to create more foliage to absorb the highest levels ever blasted into our atmosphere by US!
