Could the Gulf oil leak cause a Methane-Bubble Tsunami to erupt?

Disclaimer: I am a conservative Christian who believes God is in complete control. I believe the Bible to be 100% inspired by God and I take it literally. I do not believe the Holy Spirit gives me any more information than other Christians. What I write may be more from having studied than the Holy Spirit talking to me directly as He does to some people. However, I feel inspired and led to write and give God the credit for everything. The fact is, I do not know where this blog is coming from but I sensed a need to share my opinion. I doubt that we shall see a tsunami!

Had I not studied and taught prophecy I may not be as concerned about what is happening in our world today. Never in my life-time have I seen so many negative things happening. As I have said before: either we are in the end times or God is giving us a preview of what will happen as we get closer to the Day of Judgment.

Let us look at some problems facing our nation. We have a lack of jobs, our housing industry is suffering (300,000) annualized new home sales through May is lowest in decades. The economy is slowing, potential problems from hurricanes and possible evacuation of millions from our southern states due to the oil. We are told rising taxes are coming, state and federal deficits are out of control, added regulations on banks and financial institutions, energy costs could be escalating if congress has its way. Freddie and Fannie Mae mortgages are out of control and costing billions to taxpayers. Government’s unfunded pension plans may never be paid as promised. The actions of our congress have caused much of our population to lose confidence in government. Take away hope, which the administration has done and you block the willingness of entrepreneurs to take risks. Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah, Afghanistan, North Korea, Russia and some Muslim nations are threats to world peace. War could breakout any day!

I now read the following: “It’s not just the crude that is causing problems in the gulf oil spill: Another petroleum byproduct, natural gas, is reported to be leaking in much greater concentrations than previously thought. And not only could the gas be suffocating sea life, but a new analysis warns that a giant, 1,000-year-old methane bubble could soon explode, taking out miles and miles of the ocean floor and causing a violent oil spill tsunami that would threaten the entire gulf coastline.” (End of quote) Very scary information!

Apparently, methane gas initially and supposedly caused the explosion on the rig that collapsed allowing the spill. According to the Associated Press 100,000 barrels per days are escaping and 40% of the spill is methane gas. There is a 1,000 year old bubble and if it were to explode a tsunami could engulf the entire Gulf coastline of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

That this would happen is not a sure thing. Revelations 8:8 & 9 – “The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.” Revelation 16:3 – “The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died.”

Numerous times I have read prophecy and wondered how any of these enormous travesties could happen. What could cause fish to die and ships to be destroyed? All we need do is read the headlines in the newspaper and it explains how all of this could happen in the Gulf of Mexico. A huge eruption, a gigantic tsunami and the coastal states could see severe damage, ships could be destroyed and fish could die.

Again, we have a God that is in complete control. He may not need to cause anything to happen but He can allow anything to happen. We are warned so many times in Scripture that we are to be ready as our lives could be taken any minute. Yet, there are so many who have said: “I will accept Christ some time but not today.” Who would have thought fifty years ago all of these things could be happening at one time? Are we getting closer to the end? Are we spiritually where we should be? Are we ready and prepared for eternity?

Revelation 22:12 – 14 – “Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life.” NLT – Deeds can be defined as services to others. Our rewards will be based on our attitude, one’s heart, our love for God and others. Those who live a purified life and do not live a sinful life will be those who are blessed.

I have read so many times where the Israelites would get themselves into serious situations by disobeying God and it took united prayer and repentance, individually and collectively, for God to heal their nation. Are we not there? Must we go through what the Israelites have had to endure in past history? Are we satisfied with the spiritual condition of America? Is it not time for Christian leaders to speak up and promote our nation to go to our knees and pray? At least we should be praying for our country as well as our unsaved family and friends.
