After reading this article, the subsequent comments and learning about BP CEO Tony Hayward's yacht race, I began reflecting on the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

I remember reading somewhere in an ancient tome about the destruction of one third of the sea life. I thought that this disaster might have prophetic implications for our Godless world. I found the bits in that old book about the seven angels and their trumpets in The Revelation of John chapter 8:

A gathering of angels appeared above my head They sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said

Jubilee 2000 version of Revelation 8:6-9 And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound their trumpets. The first angel sounded the trumpet, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the land, and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. And the second angel sounded the trumpet, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood; and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

I always wondered when I read the prophet word, how fire could be mixed with hail and then IT dawned on me; flammable gasses and balls of tar sucked up in powerful storms could be carried great distances and then ignited by lightning. Wow! This really could happen, IT is a scientific probability!

I thought that they were angels but to my surprise They climbed aboard their starships and headed for the skies

This is where I close the book on the other five trumpets, pray that I am wrong, and that the time is not yet come.

Come sail away with me lads...
