Dead Birds, Dead Fish, Dead Beasts of the Earth: What does the Bible Really Say? Hosea 3,4; Ezekiel 38, 39; Zephaniah 1, 2, 3


Ezekiel 39
4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

A lot of Raven type birds are involved with this disaster. But this is something that happens during the great supper of GOD.



(This article is an opinion piece and a general interpretation of Holy Scripture. Please read the Holy Scripture for yourself and pray to the Father our God and atone your sins through his Son Yeshua the Christ. Honor the the Son and you will honor the Father. Receive what Yeshua provides. But do not take our word as law, read for yourself.)


I must admit that the millions of dead fish and the tens of thousands of dead birds have shaken me a bit. Apocalyptic theories are blanketing the Internet and science seems to be a bit lost. With the world being locked into end-times mania it is not surprising that the media has jumped on this story. I have no way of knowing if these types of events are relatively common, but the consensus seems to be that it is not at all normal.

We are not here to speculate as to the cause of this wildlife disaster but it seems reasonable that a shift in the Earth's magnetic field may be about to occur and that would be devastating to mankind. A massive Earthquake may be in our immediate future as well. (Updated: Well that sure happened, March 11, Japan. That was not a divine revelation just a logical guess)

What does the Holy Bible say about dead fish, dead birds and other dead beasts during end times prophecy? The first thing we must realize is that we need to be sure we have found GOD through Yeshua first. Because the lack of knowledge of GOD and the lack of knowledge in GOD'S Word is at hand upon the earth.

Hosea seems to be a good place to start. We need to be sure that prophecies pertaining to the death of wildlife is indeed associated with end times prophecy, Hosea seems to be associating both.

Hosea 3
1Then said the LORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress, according to the love of the LORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine.
2So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley:
3And I said unto her, Thou shalt abide for me many days; thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee.
4For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
5Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.


.....
This scripture seems to be describing Israel during the latter days or close to the end times.

Now we go to Hosea 4.
.....

Hosea 4
1Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
2By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
3Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
4Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.
5Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
7As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
8They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
9And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
10For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.
11Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.
12My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
13They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
14I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.
15Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.
16For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
17Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
18Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.
19The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices
.
.........
I believe this is describing Israel in the latter days or during the end times. The lack of knowledge in GOD is the most common sin we commit today. We have set aside Y.hweh's ordinances and commandments in our daily lives. Israel has rejected Yeshua, Jesus, the Christ (The Holy Word made Flesh) and I believe this scripture points directly to that.

We must follow a common thread throughout the Bible to find the answers we are looking for. One common mistake that people make with the Holy WORD of GOD, the Holy Bible, is they take one verse and run with it. To truly understand and gain knowledge, wisdom and find the Light of GOD (Yeshua) one must work for it. Read a chapter before and after. Don't make conclusions with one verse among thousands.



We conclude with more Scripture from Zephaniah that yet again follows a common thread.
We will post Zephaniah 1 only but to understand what Zephaniah is saying one must read all three Chapters of Zephaniah.

....

Zephaniah 1
1The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
2I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.
3I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.
4I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
5And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham;
6And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him.
7Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.
8And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.
9In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit.
10And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.
11Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.
12And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil.
13Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.
14The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
15That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
16A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

17And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
18Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

......

In Zephaniah 2 he speaks about the return of the remnant of Israel.

Conclusion:

The common threads we can find throughout the Scripture provided above is:
  • The Return of the remnant of Israel


  • End times prophecy


  • Dead birds, fish and other beasts


  • Preludes to Yeshua

We must nor forget that the lack of knowledge that Hosea spoke of, in my opinion, is the lack of knowledge of the Kingdom of Heaven-GOD that Yeshua spoke of and the lack of knowledge of the Torah and Prophets. The Light is wisdom and knowledge, and the Light is the Law or Torah. Yeshua brought the unique teachings of the Kingdom of Heaven to the Earth and this knowledge has been mostly rejected by Jews and Christians alike.

Dead birds and dead fish are just another sign among many. But as Yeshua said; an adulterous generation shall seek after a sign and none will be provided. Man will look toward man and will recieve man's conclusions while he will reject the Word of GOD. So this event will pass unto the ether because the fickle nature of man demands it. End times signs are all around us but only a few truly follow the entirety of the WORD of GOD and I believe this small group of people will have the knowledge to find life and the multitudes that reject the Wisdom of GOD will find only destruction, death and will be cast into out darkness.

Endure and maintain the WORD of GOD the best you can, witness unto all the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven-GOD as Yeshua commanded. Thats all we can do.
