I am getting the question every day, and of course people are wondering about the prophetic implications.
First of all, seeing this situation increasing by the day, in more and more areas around the world is startling, to say the least.
Additionally, the explanations being offered border on the ridiculous and it makes me wonder why such implausible, almost intelligence insulting explanations are being discussed in the media.
Secondly, to be honest, I don't see any specific prophecies which address this situation. It isn't to be found among the typical "signs" that we follow. Having said that, however, the underlying cause could be prophetically related, but that would depend on what exactly the underlying cause is.
The best overall summary (which was already posted) actually comes from the daily mail (hey, it is what it is).
The pictures really help to understand the magnitude of this situation.
Dead Birds Fall From Sky in Sweden
Dead Birds Falling From Sky Still Mystify Experts
Blackbird mystery deepens: more birds fall from sky
Dead Birds Fall From Sky In Sweden, Millions of Dead Fish Found in Maryland, Brazil, New Zealand
The plot thickens? Dead birds found in Sweden, Kentucky
So, whats going on?
Lets look at the explanations we have been given:
Please. That one is too insulting to even consider.
2. Sudden exposure to cold water is killing fish:
OK, perhaps in certain regions, but what about places such as Brazil? How does this explain the birds deaths?
3. This happens all the time, but usually in remote areas so we never "see" it.
Please again...Ok, if this is the explanation, then why suddenly is this happening in developed areas, all around the world?
If #3 is the explanation, then we need an explanation to the question above. Again, this "explanation" borders on insulting one's intelligence.
4. Bad weather, storms and lightening.
As if we've never had bad weather and storms with lightening before? And this has caused the problem across the world? What about the fish? This one seems highly unlikely as well, especially considering that we're seeing the same problems in the northern hemisphere, where lighting isn't exactly the problem in each location.
So what is it?
Well, it has to fall into one of two categories:
1. A natural phenomenon.
---> If this is the case, what exactly is going on "naturally"? If it is killing this many birds and fish, then we sure should be getting a grip on whats happening here as soon as possible. And what is next?
2. A man-made phenomenon.
---> If this is the case, then what the heck is going on? A weapon out of control? Some experiment? Something planned?
At this point there are many many more questions than answers. But if this is so "naturally occurring", then why haven't we seen anything like this before?
Either way, at this point, it is hard to see any specific prophetic significance - certainly before the Tribulation (during the Tribulation, the world will see much of this, only on a much larger scale). However, that comes with a very large caveat - the underlying cause could most definitely have prophetic significance - all depending upon the root cause.
Could this be some kind of "forewarning" from God? That may be an interesting question to ponder.
Stay tuned. We'll have updates as soon as they become available. This is definitely worth watching.
In addition to new occurrences in South Carolina and Nashville, we finally see a plausible explanation:
Moving Magnetic North Pole May Be the Cause of Mysterious Deaths
The steady and rapid movement of the Magnetic North Pole may be responsible for the recent, sudden and mysterious death of thousands of birds and millions of fish in the US.
It is a commonly accepted notion that the navigation systems of many animals are effected by magnetism. According to the NewScientist BIRDS that navigate using the Earth's magnetic field rely more on their eyes than on the magnetic particles in their nostrils, an experiment on robins suggests and careful tests with homing pigeons and other birds displaying the ability to judge direction show that the birds are effected by changing magnetic fields.
Additionally, a team of scientists in New Zealand have brought us another step closer to understanding the magnetic sense of the trout, indicating that the trout's compass is inside its head, near the nose. They found that a fresh-water fish, the trout, would respond to a magnetic field.
Science also suggests that insects use a similar magnetic sense to determine direction citing.
OK, I'm in so far. Is this a possible explanation? Perhaps:
Cause of Bird and Fish Death
Considering southern migration patterns and environmental cues that wildlife take, it would stand to reason that with the Magnetic North Pole losing strength and moving over and across the True North Pole toward Russia, e.g. Away from the Southern United States in distance and strength, it would stand to reason that birds and fish may be confused as to their distance and direction from the locations they instinctively should be heading. A failure to interpret the location and distance of the Magnetic North Pole could clearly lead to a failure for birds and fish to properly migrate south in time to overt cold spells and imminent death.
This makes more sense than any of the other proposed explanations. We'll see what else comes in.
