The oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has become an event which is hard not to see and describe as apocalyptic. Many who have looked at this present time in history as the last days or a time immediately preceding them have begun to focus close attention on the possibility of the oil spill crisis being fulfillment of Revelation chapter 8 events. It has been examined here as well as many other sources, though it is perhaps correct to say that no one yet knows a sure answer, none but He who decides when prophecy is to be fulfilled.

The information which is shared in this article is not meant to encourage a certain conclusion that the Gulf oil crisis is fulfilled prophecy or soon to be fulfilled prophecy, yet there are some possibly startling connections to pay attention to here, ones which might make future information as it comes more relevant.

The verses which believers are focusing on currently and which are dealt with here are these:

"Then the second messenger sounded and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died and a third of the ships were destroyed. Then the third messenger sounded and a great star fell from the sky, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood and many men died from the water because it was made bitter. " - Revelation 8: 8-11

A great mountain burning with fire and which most have probably imagined falling from the sky does not appear to be what has happened in the Gulf of Mexico, not in a literal way. Then for this reason have some attempted to understand the current event as relating to the prophecy in an entirely figurative way. I am not in favor of completely symbolic interpretations of scripture though, it is not reasonable or within what is evident of YHWH's nature to explain in riddles what is needful for people to understand. For a thing to be figurative in scripture, there must also be clear indication of it, it must be clear that analogy or metaphor is being used and what it symbolizes must have a reasonably clear interpretation or else there is freedom to make guesses. I do not conclude that an oil rig in some way resembled a mountain to John when he received the vision, or if it had that YHWH would allow John's misinterpretation to be forever struggled with by believers reading His word, but here is what we should know of the mention of a mountain in this verse:

The word which has been interpreted as "mountain" from the Greek is the word "oros". The definition of this word is given by Strong's to be a mountain, or something which is risen or rears itself above the plain. What is not evident in Strong's is that "oros" is also the word from which the English word "horizon" is derived at its root. Horizon - horizo (a dividing or separating) - oros. That which is seen as rising above the plain in one's line of sight at its most distant visual point and marking the boundary between earth and heaven is the horizon. If any need reminded, the name of the oil rig which sunk in the Gulf was named the "Deepwater Horizon".

The Deepwater Horizon was thrown into the sea and then it should follow that a third of the sea becomes blood. The word which is for sea - thalassa is not specific as to if it should mean one sea or many or all seas as a collective and so there is no predicting in a third of every ocean and sea is polluted in this way or just one specific body of water. We have seen, though, the oil slick which, unlike most cases of oil spilling into sea water, is red and looks like exactly like blood.

Since the disaster it has not been the government or the military, the local community organizers or governors, mayors or the EPA who have been in charge of cleaning up and putting right this horrible wrong. It has been left to those who carry the public blame for the disaster itself, those who supposedly are responsible for the "mistake" have been given the entire responsibility for correcting it. As a parent demanding a naughty child who has made a mess to then go clean it, Obama has put forward a show of laying the duty to correct the problem on those who caused it, but yet in such a serious situation one might ask what sense it should make to give the wrong doer all power over the very situation they caused. Not only does BP have control over the entire clean up but also, it appears, they have control over the affected area, giving orders to local officials and police officers and demanding the arrest of citizens who would film or otherwise document what is taking place there. BP has answered its "mistake" by dumping millions of gallons of a toxic and useless dispersant called Corexit into the water making a bad situation even worse and giving no warning or protection to those who are coming in contact with the substance. It is yet to be seen that any real attempt by BP has been made to stop this from getting worse.

If it is fulfillment of prophecy that is unfolding then there is an event to be expected following a Deepwater Horizon being thrown into the sea and the sea becoming blood. A star, burning like a torch which falls on a third of the rivers and springs of water. We have seen no asteroid descend from heaven yet. It has been discussed that with consideration of a possible nuclear solution to the crisis that this burning star might be a nuclear weapon. Possibly that is a fair guess, but there is other information to consider.

The star which falls is called Wormwood. Wormwood is a plant known more officially as Artemesia Absinthium. From this plant is derived absinthe, a strong, intoxicating hallucinogen. The effects of ingesting wormwood range from medicinally beneficial ( such as eradication of internal parasites) to fatal. It is strange to imagine that a heavenly body crashing to earth, or even a nuclear weapon might be named after a plant or that it should fall on many waters or that the effect on those waters is exactly as the effect of the plant wormwood itself -"they were made bitter". Wormwood is known for its very bitter flavor.

The word in Greek translated to say "burning" is "kaio" which can mean to burn and also can mean "consume". A deadly effect, then, that can be likened to consumption as fire consumes. The dispersant,Corexit that BP has used fits the description of a deadly agent of a consuming, burning destruction. A toxin that is able to destroy blood cells, kidneys, nervous systems and lungs in humans and which also has been seen to burn up the leaves of vegetation which it contacts. The connections which can be made between Corexit and Wormwood far exceed this though.

The word which translates to "star" in Greek is aster, and a star is just what it means in it's original use, but now, that same Greek word Aster is the name of a family of plants who's flowers usually resemble stars with various numbers of rays. Artemesia Absinthium, or Wormwood belongs to the Asteraceae (aster) family.

Aster Flowers

BP's logo is said to be a sunflower, a flower which is also a member of the plant family Asteraceae, as well as a tribute to the Greek deity of the sun, Helios.

It comes now into question if BP had in mind, not a sunflower, but a Wormwood blossom. The ingredients of the dispersant Corexit had not, for some time, been a publicly available list. The company claiming it wished to preserve its patent rights on the ingredients of the mixture kept it a company secret, but recently public pressure has pushed BP to offer the list of Corexit ingredients for public display. One of these ingredients, until now, kept secret is a substance listed as Butanedioic acid. The effects of butanedioic acid on lab animals are skin irritation, hemorrhage of the digestive tract, lethargy, depression and edema. Aquatic life has been seen to have a 50% higher mortality rate exposed to butanedioic acid after 4 days of exposure.

The real point of interest of butanedioic acid is this, though: BP's use of this name "butanedioic acid" has obscured the fact that this substance has other names we might be much more interested in knowing. Butanedioic acid is also known as succinic acid or "spirit of amber" because it can be derived from amber, but succinic acid is also found in Artemesia Absinthium, wormwood and yet another synonym for butanedioic acid and succinic acid is Wormwood Acid. Corexit 9500 contains Wormwood Acid. Here is a link you can check this for yourself at -[Synonym]%201110[standardizedcid

There was a "horizon" which was thrown into the sea, there is an "aster" which has polluted the waters further. The wormwood of the family asteraceae is threatening to burn vegetation and poison people.

Perhaps there is much yet to answer, such as things which are listed as coming before these events in the prophecy of Revelation, yet these things should not necessarily be put aside as just a great coincidence. Even so, come Master Yahushua.

"In a desperate attempt to stop a huge area of the Gulf ocean floor from possibly rupturing due to subterranean methane gas (leading to a calamity no human has ever seen) BP has ripped a page from science fiction books.

The giant oil company is now quietly preparing to test a small nuclear device in a frenzied rush against time to quell a cascading catastrophe. If successful they will have the capability to detonate a controlled fusion generated pulse.

While the world watches BP’s attempt to contain the oil gusher at the former Deepwater Horizon site, company officials have given the green light on an astounding plan to use what is known as a nuclear EPFCG charge if all else fails...

A device that can only be used once, the EPFCG generates a high power electromagnetic pulse. It achieves this by using a powerful explosive, preferably nuclear. Advanced, nuclear driven EPFCGs can instantaneously create up to billions of amperes and hundreds of terawatts. Such raw power exceeds lighting bolts by huge orders of magnitude."

read the rest here:

I very sincerely hope this is never going to be done. This is a matter we should keep a watch on and one of us (perhaps myself if no one else) should perhaps investigate to see what more can be discovered of this possibility.
Successful Test of Nuclear EPFCG

July 14th, 2010
BP with oversight from NATO and the help of several government agencies has successfully tested a Nuclear explosively pumped flux compression generator (EPFCG). It is a device used to generate a high-power electromagnetic pulse by compressing magnetic flux using high explosive.

Preliminary reports suggest that the device was detonated 500 meters underground at a location deep in the Canadian Arctic.

Previous reports of Canadian troops deploying to the Gulf Coast were incorrect. British and Canadian troops were seen departing from Edmonton Alberta and the Cold Lake Air base for undisclosed training in Northern Canada.

Fort McPherson located in the Inuvik Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada is said to 80km from the test site.

The USGS and Canada Earthquake center are reporting a mild earthquake in the region registering between 3.8 and 4.2 magnitude.

Indications for the EPFCG plan point towards using the weapon to instantly melt rock and trace metals in the well shaft and surrounding area. Some sort of soft metal would also have to be pumped into the well before the EPFCG device could be detonated.

According to sources at the test site, there would be two near simultaneous explosions from the device. The first detonation would be an induced Plasma event made by an ectromagnetic pulse than would generate enough heat to melt the rock and metal, followd by a percussion wave that would briefly neutralize the huge pressure in the well. In a few microseconds thousands and cubic meters of bed rock and metal would be instantly fused together sealing the oil well.

Stage 1 of the test occurred at CFB Suffield where a non-nuclear EPFCG was detonated in a operational oil well.

Stage 2 was the testing of the nuclear percussion weapon in the high Canadian Arctic.

What can be confirmed with little effort is the sudden influx of NATO soldiers and unprecented air traffic occurring at CFB Cold Lake and the total lock down at CFB Suffield. A Calgary Sun photographer was tossed to the ground and arrested for trying to take pictures on Monday.

My source was willing to be identified but I will only confirm that he is an Inuit member of the Canadian Rangers, a volunteer miltia that is tasked with coastal and northern security patrols by the Canadian Forces

This is a pretty interesting article, even though i really don't care for the site name. Please accept my disclaimer concerning it.
Censored Gulf news: People bleeding internally, millions poisoned says 'EPA whistleblower'

"...we have dolphins that are hemorrhaging. People who work near it are hemorrhaging internally. And that’s what dispersants are supposed to do... Congressman Markey and Nadler, as well as Senator Mikulski, have been heroes... Mark Kaufman, EPA whistleblower, Democracy Now!

Poisoning millions of people
In its report, EPA Whistleblower Accuses Agency of Covering Up Effects of Dispersant in BP Oil Spill Cleanup, Democracy Now! states that "many lawmakers and advocacy groups say the Obama administration is not being candid about the lethal effects of dispersants," so Amy Goodman interviewed Hugh Kaufman, a senior policy analyst at the EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response and a leading critic of the decision to use Corexit" who disclosed how the officials are lying about many things related to the catastrophe poisoning "millions of people." (Listen: Real Audio Strea or MP3 Download)

The rushed transcript includes Kaufman saying, "And I think the media now has to follow the money, just as they did in Watergate, and tell the American people who’s getting money for poisoning the millions of people in the Gulf. (Emphasis added)
"While concerns over the impact of chemical dispersants continue to grow, Gulf Coast residents are outraged by a recent announcement that the $20 billion government-administered claim fund will subtract money cleanup workers earn by working for the cleanup effort from any future claims.

The "Vessels of Opportunity" program has employed hundreds of Gulf Coast out of work people because of the spill which Kaufman says is viewed as yest another way "to limit the number of lawsuits against BP."

"And the government—both EPA, NOAA, etc.—have been sock puppets for BP in this cover-up. (Emphasis added)

Kaufman concurs with MSNBC's report last week, that "sole purpose in the Gulf for dispersants is to keep a cover-up going for BP to try to hide the volume of oil that has been released and save them hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars of fines... not to protect the public health or environment. Quite the opposite.."

He says to follow the money, and that leads to individuals in the Obama Administration, naming Mr. Geithner, Mr. Summers with close ties to Larry Fink who owns BlackRock that owns most BP shares.

He commented on the children being poisoned:

" know, when you’re on the sand with your children and they dig, and there’s a little water?—they documented there was over 200 parts per million of oil waste in the water, and it’s not noticeable to the human eye... On top of it, the contamination in one of the samples was so high that when they put the solvent in, as a first step in identifying how much oil may be in the water, the thing blew up, just as he said, probably because there was too much Corexit in that particular sample."

When Goodman asked Kaufman to comment on the similarities between the Ground Zero of the Gulf catastrophe and what happened at Ground Zero of 911, he explained that he did the ombudsman investigation on Ground Zero, "where EPA made false statements about the safety of the air" ... since proven to be false.

Red herring: No more tests needed. Corexit known to be dangerous.

"The largest ingredient in Corexit is oil. But there are other materials. And when the ingredients are mixed with oil, the combination of Corexit or any dispersant and oil is more toxic than the oil itself. But EPA has all that information.

"That’s a red herring issue being raised, that we have to somehow know more information. When you look at the label and you look at the toxicity sheets that come with it, the public knows enough to know that it’s very dangerous. The National Academy of Science has done work on it. Toxicologists from Exxon that developed it have published on it.

"So, we know enough to know that it’s very dangerous, and to say that we just have to know more about it is a red herring issue. We know plenty. It’s very dangerous."

"[T]he media now has to follow the money, just as they did in Watergate, and tell the American people who’s getting money for poisoning the millions of people in the Gulf."

No mention was made by the whistleblower about military involvement in this operation, nor that the DoD has been in bed with EPA for decades, testing aerosol sprayed chemicals on unwitting individuals and large populations.

With all eyes on big bad BP, could it be the real red herring?
" know, when you’re on the sand with your children and they dig, and there’s a little water?—they documented there was over 200 parts per million of oil waste in the water, and it’s not noticeable to the human eye... On top of it, the contamination in one of the samples was so high that when they put the solvent in, as a first step in identifying how much oil may be in the water, the thing blew up, just as he said, probably because there was too much Corexit in that particular sample."

I guess about all i can say other than the psychotic nature of keeping this from the public isn't as shocking to me as i would "People, get out of there".. we've known all along this stuff is deadly..that it can literally act as a catalyst to bring other toxins (like petroleum) into the body tissues. There is simply no way the immediate Gulf region is safe to live in. We'll stay hopeful that the rest of the country and its fresh water supply doesn't go the same way.
Where did all the oil go?! After millions or maybe billions of gallons of crude oil spews out of the broken well, it doesn't just disappear. It doesn't just break down into nothing. Unless of course this is a miracle performed by Our Great Creator. Then that is possible. Although, I am thinking something just smells bad.

BP Oil Spill: Clean-Up Crews Can't Find Crude in the Gulf
As Size of Slick Shrinks, Experts Say Oil is Breaking Up, Staying Below Surface

BURAS, La. July 26, 2010
For 86 days, oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico from BP's damaged well, dumping some 200 million gallons of crude into sensitive ecosystems. BP and the federal government have amassed an army to clean the oil up, but there's one problem -- they're having trouble finding it.
Managing director Bob Dudley is reportedly taking over from Tony Hayward.

At its peak last month, the oil slick was the size of Kansas, but it has been rapidly shrinking, now down to the size of New Hampshire.
Today, ABC News surveyed a marsh area and found none, and even on a flight out to the rig site Sunday with the Coast Guard, there was no oil to be seen.

"That oil is somewhere. It didn't just disappear," said Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser.
Salvador Cepriano is one of the men searching for crude. Cepriano, a shrimper, has been laying out boom with his boat, but he's found that there's no oil to catch.
"I think it is underneath the water. It's in between the bottom and the top of the water," Cepriano said.
Even the federal government admits that locating the oil has become a problem.
"It is becoming a very elusive bunch of oil for us to find," said National Incident Cmdr. Thad Allen.
Skimmers Pick Up Less Oil
The numbers don't lie: two weeks ago, skimmers picked up about 25,000 barrels of oily water. Last Thursday, they gathered just 200 barrels.
Still, it doesn't mean that all the oil that gushed for weeks is gone. Thousands of small oil patches remain below the surface, but experts say an astonishing amount has disappeared, reabsorbed into the environment.
"[It's] mother nature doing her job," said Ed Overton, a professor of environmental studies at Louisiana State University.
Experts: Gulf of Mexico Oil is Breaking Up
The light crude began to deteriorate the moment it escaped at high pressure, and then it was zapped with dispersants to speed the process along. The oil that did make it to the ocean's surface was broken up by 88-degree water, baked by 100-degree sun, eaten by microbes, and whipped apart by wind and waves.

Experts stress that even though there's less and less oil as time goes on, there's still plenty around the spill site. And in the long term, no one knows what the impact of those hundreds of millions of gallons will be, deep in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

BP Oil Spill: Where Did All The Crude Go? Mother Nature Breaks Down Slick in Gulf of Mexico - ABC News
An idea such as "mother nature has done her job" like one in that article says is ridiculous. The Exxon Valdez spill occurred in 1989 and spilled at most 750,000 barrels of oil. 21 years later, the environment of that area is still damaged. imagining this which just happened in the gulf being simply gone 10 days or so after a poor attempt to cap the well makes no reasonable sense. the oil must logically still be there, whether under the surface or suspended in chemicals.
Unreal...sure, it's all just Gone..just like that. Presto chango..they must have gotten Harry Potter on the job eh? Of course it appears to be gone..after dumping millions of gallons of Corexit on it, what do they expect? BP had intended this to be the case so that they are liable for less spilled oil...if you can't find it, you can't measure it.
Presto chango!!
Indeed...I have come across a few articles saying microbes have eaten all the oil up! Microbes have eaten millions of gallons of crude oil. Microbes. Here is a quote from one article " some researchers suspect, is that the oil has been devoured by microbes."
I could come up with a more fantastic theory than that. Wonder who is paying these "researchers"?
microbes could eat a lot of oil.. and at first there were a number of requests for BP to use microbes to do that, but BP being the Beast tool that it is, declined.. deciding instead to pollute the water with Corexit, which happens to kill microbes which would have eliminated some of the oil..

now we have essentially invisible toxins and rainclouds full of microencapsulated poisons.. that will persist as long as the toxic particles continue to evaporate into the atmosphere.. which, with the amount used, could be for an unfortunately long time.
the oil is gone? here is a picture taken by satellite July 28 showing diluted oil over 12,000 square miles of surface water.

"Feds Can’t Find Oil But Satellite Photos Show BP Gulf Oil Spill Covering 12,000 Square Miles

The federal government and media is reporting that the BP gulf oil spill has disappeared but satellite photos show a slick covering over 12,000 square miles of the Gulf.

According to John Amos over at Sky Truth all of that oil that magically disappeared isn’t going away just yet.

Yesterday’s MODIS and RADARSAT images show something we didn’t expect: slicks and sheen spanning nearly 12,000 square miles. Based on other reports, and the recent trend on satellite images indicating steady dissipation of the surface oil slick, we are optimistically assuming that nearly all of this is very thin sheen."
Here's Bp's latest commentary on the spill...

"The beaches will be normal before Christmas, fishing will be back in two months and the shellfish industry in two years. It's not that the oysters and clams are poisonous, it's just that they won't taste very nice....

The truth is, the death toll is very small when you compare it with other major disasters," says Dr Martin Preston, a marine chemist at Liverpool University, who was involved in the clean-up after the Braer disaster off the Shetland islands in 1993, in which 85,000 tonnes of crude oil were spilt."

So the oysters and clams aren't poisonous..they just taste bad. As a general rule i think we all know that if you open a can of something or pull an item out of the refrigerator which smells or tastes is bad...don't eat that.

As for the "small" death toll in wildlife...anyone recall the reports of BP burning marine animals alive, effectively getting rid of the evidence?

"A rare and endangered species of sea turtle is being burned alive in BP's controlled burns of the oil swirling around the Gulf of Mexico, and a boat captain tasked with saving them says the company has blocked rescue efforts....

Part of BP's efforts to contain the oil spill are controlled burns. Fire-resistant booms are used to corral an area of oil, then the area within the boom is lit on fire, burning off the oil and whatever marine life may have been inside....

Mike Michael at reports that Kemp's Ridleys are listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act. Harming or killing one "carries stiff fines and civil penalties ($500-$25,000) assessed for each violation. Criminal penalties include possible prison time and fines from $25,000-$50,000."
Michael suggests that, given the size of the fines BP could face as a result of the turtle deaths, the company may be happy to let turtles burn, as it would make it impossible to calculate exactly how many turtles died. He notes that the bodies of dead animals are being kept as evidence to determine how much in fines BP will be liable for"
BP oil spill mostly cleaned up, says US Guardian UK

White House says 75% of oil captured, burned off, evaporated or broken down as 'static kill' operaion shows signs of working

"The US government said today that most of the oil that leaked into the Gulf of Mexico has been cleaned up as BP reported that a "static kill" blocking procedure was stopping more crude pouring into the gulf.

"The White House energy adviser, Carol Browner, said a new assessment had found that about 75% of the oil had been captured, burned off, evaporated or broken down in the Gulf.

"The volume of the remaining oil, however, is still more than four times larger than the amount lost from the Exxon Valdez tanker in 1989.

"It was captured. It was skimmed. It was burned. It was contained. Mother Nature did her part," Browner said of the Gulf oil spill. She added that about 25% remained."


"..BP will not know for certain whether the static kill has succeeded until engineers can use the relief well. That is due to be completed soon. The well will be used to execute the bottom kill.

"The task is becoming more urgent because the peak hurricane season is just around the corner, Allen said.."
