The Death of Sen. Byrd and the Gulf Disaster—A Sign?
As time goes on, there seem to be more and more curious “coincidences” which lead some to think that there is something very “fishy” about the Gulf oil spill disaster. For example, just eight days before the oil rig blew, Halliburton (whose former CEO was Dick Cheney) bought out Boots and Coots. Boots & Coots has two core businesses. The first is Pressure Control, which involves prevention and risk-control services for oil- and gas-well fires and blowouts. (See full article from DailyFinance: http://srph.it/9MwFrU) Just a coincidence, of course. (Link provided is no longer valid.)
As is the fact that BP chief Tony Hayward sold about one-third of his BP stock just weeks before oil spill. Since he disposed of 223,288 shares on March 17, the company’s share price has fallen by 30 per cent. Of course, we are not suggesting that he acted improperly or had prior knowledge that BP was about to suffer the largest challenge in its history. But it certainly is another strange coincidence.
Then, too, is the sale of BP stock by Goldman Sachs. According to John Byrne, in Raw Story on Wednesday, June 2, 2010: “The brokerage firm that’s faced the most scrutiny from regulators in the past year over the shorting of mortgage related securities seems to have had good timing when it came to something else: the stock of British oil giant BP.
According to regulatory filings, RawStory.com has found that Goldman Sachs sold 4,680,822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010. Goldman’s sales were the largest of any firm during that time. Goldman would have pocketed slightly more than $266 million if their holdings were sold at the average price of BP’s stock during the quarter.
One startling result of the Gulf oil spill is that “As much as 1 million times the normal level of methane gas has been found in some regions near the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, enough to potentially deplete oxygen and create a dead zone, U.S. scientists said on Tuesday. Texas A&M University oceanography professor John Kessler, just back from a 10-day research expedition near the BP Plc oil spill in the gulf, says methane gas levels in some areas are “astonishingly high.'” [Article here].

Other more ominous signs of trouble which appear to be related to the Gulf spill and/or the “clean-up” work are the health effects on some workers and residents. See my post yesterday and in particular, watch this video, mentioned in footnote 4. Kindra Arnesen from Venice LA speaks in a video on the need to evacuate due to toxin sickness she has seen – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkYJDI8pK9Y.
In discussing these things with Ron Oja yesterday, along with the death of Senator Byrd, Ron told me of organic gardeners near the Gulf coast who are now reporting how the leaves of their vegetable plants are turning white—white spots all over—and very suddenly, within a 24-hour span. Doesn’t that remind you of leprosy in the Bible?, Ron asked.
Biblically, how is leprosy dealt with? The laws for cleansing leprosy (Leviticus 14) involves two birds. The first is killed and the second is dipped in the blood of the first and then set free. (We have taught in depth in lectures past how this prophesies of the two works of Christ: the first is a death work at His first coming; the second is a live work at His second coming.)
We now have “leprosy” in the land. And yesterday Senator Byrd (bird) dies. He was from West Virginia, a state which, more than any other, is associated with coal mines. Before the advent of modern gas detection equipment, miners used to take a canary bird down into the mine with them. Canaries have very sensitive lungs and so when the canary suddenly died, the miners had a few minutes warning that they needed to scramble to safety and quickly because the usual cause was methane gas.
America, Senator Byrd, the canary, has died! Scramble to safety fast! There is only one true hope for America, the Lord Jesus Christ. Under His wings—the wings of the second bird, the living bird—shall we run for shelter. Come with repentance and plead with Him for mercy on our land and our people!
Psalm 61:1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. 2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. 4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings.
The wings are the wings of the seraphim which cover the Mercy Seat. The Mercy Seat was the lid (cover) of the Ark of the Covenant in the Tabernacle. In the Old Testament, it was the place signifying the presence of Yahweh Almighty, the God of Israel and the God of the whole earth. The Mercy Seat is the place of the forgiveness of sins. Plead for mercy, America. Plead!
