So many dead fish

As a reminder, I am writing these posts hoping that those who find themselves living during the tribulation period will read them and see that everything they are experiencing was foretold in the bible long before it happened. My prayer is that this will lead some to see the truth of Jesus Christ and will receive Him as their Lord and Savior. Feel free to share any of my posts.

The last 3½ years of the 7-year tribulation period will be unparalleled in all of man’s history. Jesus said in Matthew 24:21-22
Matthew 24:21–22 (NIV) For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. 22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.

Beginning with the first bowl judgment you can understand why. The pouring out of the first bowl results in all those who received the mark of the beast being inflicted with painful (festering) sores (think Job of the OT).

Let’s continue to look at the 2nd bowl judgment

Bowl Judgment # 2
Revelation 16:3 (NIV) The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.

In a previous judgment, 1/3 of the world’s oceans were turned to blood which resulted in 1/3 of all sea life dying. This has already impacted the world on several levels. Now the remaining oceans of the world are turned to blood and all sea life dies. Thousands upon thousands of fish will be washed up on shores all around the world. What will be the impact upon the world?

Here is an excerpt from an article written by Mike Pearl in Sept. 2019.
But if we move away from looking at the ocean as a business, it bears mentioning that not eating any fish whatsoever is decidedly not an option for a vast swath of humanity. "You'd be looking at a lot of starvation," Payne, the Stanford paleobiologist, told me. According to a 2016 op-ed in Science magazine by public health researcher Christopher Golden, 845 million people—about a tenth of the global population—face some form of malnutrition in the near future when traditional fishing ceases to be a viable source of food for many of the world's poor.

We're also in for more big changes to the weather, Payne said. Part of the reason the oceans work as a "carbon sink" is that plankton consume carbon as a part of photosynthesis, turning them into organic matter. A reduction in photosynthesis means more carbon will just stay in the atmosphere and speed up global warming, particularly in the vast dead zone around the equator—a probable cause of the extreme ocean temperatures of the Great Dying; areas that are now usually around 28 degrees Celsius were 40 degrees Celsius or more back then.

Apart from heat, Payne said, "one thing you would see very quickly is the effect of storms on coastal systems would change, because with nothing living on the reefs, the reefs will start to fall apart. That will reduce their ability to protect coastal systems from waves during big storms." This means huge changes in the terrestrial climate near these coastal systems, particularly in places like Australia and the Bahamas.

But even with the combined ocean ecosystem more or less converted into a giant marine desert, there's a very good chance we'll always have a man-made oasis or two. A 2017 proposal by the consortium of tourism businesses and Australia's Reef and Rainforest Research Centre would protect six particularly profitable sites along the reef by literally pumping in cold water at a cost of millions of dollars to lessen the effects of climate change. The idea has been regarded as perverse, with critics noting that pumping cold water into a few areas of the Great Barrier Reef would be nothing but a band-aid, and that large scale action is needed. But large scale action isn't happening, and the mass die-off is proceeding.
