Red Tide Brings State of Emergency In Florida

Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency on Wednesday due to severe “red tide,” which is an algae that turns the water red. It has killed thousands of marine wildlife and it can also make people sick.

Red tide is not uncommon, but this red tide is most severe, warranting a state of emergency in Florida, which has shut down beaches and businesses in seven counties throughout Florida, in Charlotte, Collier, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota Counties.

At concentrated levels, which is what is seen now in Florida, fish, sea turtles, dolphins and other marine wildlife die.

The Journal of Headache & Pain Management published a paper on the effects of red tide in humans in April 2016. In that report, they stated,

“There is an increasing frequency of Red Tide phenomena throughout the world, with temperature and pollution being indicated as contributing factors.”

The journal reported that it has been estimated that 60,000 human toxicity cases occur every year worldwide.

The Word of God tells us that the water will be “turned to blood” in the last days. This may not allude to real blood, any more than a “blood moon” refers to the moon exhibiting real blood.

The Word of God tells us,

“These (God’s two witnesses) have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy, and have power over waters to turn them to blood and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will” Revelation 11:6.

This will happen during the great tribulation and, again, the waters turning to blood doesn’t necessarily mean real blood.

“And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters and they became blood” Revelation 16:4.

The Word of God also tells us,

“The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes” Joel 2:31.

This has already happened in recent years, in 2014-2015, when the heavens displayed four “blood moons (lunar eclipses),” with a darkened sun (solar eclipse) in the middle of the “blood moon tetrad,” exactly on Israel’s feast days!

The prophets of Israel knew that a “blood moon” was a lunar eclipse, because it appears red; this is what the prophets were referring to. In the same manner, waters turning to blood could be the sign of red tide in the last days.

Does it matter that a few years have passed since the blood moon tetrad, but the Lord has not returned yet?

Jesus said things would appear normal when He returns:

“As the days of Noah were, so shall the coming of the Son of Man (Jesus) be; for as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be” Matthew 24:37-39.

In fact, the Word of God also tells us,

“When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction will come upon them, as travail upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape” 1 Thessalonians 5:3.

Again, the Prophet Joel said, “The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord” Joel 2:31.

What would be the purpose if the heavens showed the signs of the Lord’s return, and the Lord appeared the very next day?

God is giving people TIME to repent, folks; but one of these days, it will be TOO LATE! The signs are here!

The Word of God tells us,

“…Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” 2 Corinthians 6:2.

Tomorrow could be too late!

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior; unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate (Romans 1:21-32). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

During the persecutions of Protestants by the Roman Catholics in the Netherlands, John de Buisons, a Protestant, was secretly apprehended and privately executed at Antwerp. The numbers of Protestants being great in that city, and the prisoner much respected, the magistrates feared an insurrection and for that reason, ordered him to be beheaded in prison – all in the name of God (the god of Catholics, who is Lucifer)!

Excerpts taken from Fox’s Book of Martyrs – Zondervan Publishing House (1926)

A few hundred years ago, Fox’s Book of Martyrs was chained to every pulpit, alongside the Holy Bible. I suppose people decided to turn their heads away from such violent crimes and become more “dignified.” We dishonor those who suffered by burying their testimonies and martyrdom. It also seems most churches today are too “dignified” for the Holy Spirit and fire, Who fell on the apostles of the early church (Acts 2)!

The Catholic Church has never issued an apology for the crimes committed during the Inquisition and the brutal torture and murders of Protestant Christians, who denounced papal authority, denied Purgatory, the selling of indulgences in sin, the worship of idols, and prayers to the saints and the Virgin Mary. Neither has any reparation been made to the heirs of the saints who suffered such vile persecutions from the Catholic Church. Protestants were brutally murdered by Catholics by way of burning them alive at the stake, flaying alive, hangings, cutting them to pieces, burying them alive, drowning, torturing them on the rack, whereby bones were broken and bodies ripped apart, beheading them, etc… The property and assets were seized of those heinously murdered by the Catholic Church from about the Twelfth Century through around the 1820s, not that long ago. The Vatican sits atop the blood of the saints. Revelation 18 describes her brutal end for heresies and having committed such abominable crimes.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4.

God is calling His sincere believers to come out of the Catholic abomination, before it’s too late!
