Are Mysterious Bird and Fish Deaths Prophetic?

If the bird and fish deaths in Arkansas weren’t spooky enough, millions more dead fish have turned up in Maryland. And the United Kingdom and Italy are also reporting unusual animal deaths. What’s going on?

It all started on New Year’s Eve when reports came in that 5,000 blackbirds dropped out of the sky in Beebe, Ark. The next day, about 100,000 dead drum fish floated to the shore of the Arkansas River.

If that’s where it ended, it might not have gained national attention. But a few days later, about 2 million juvenile spot fish were dead in the Chesapeake Bay.

Arkansas authorities said disease likely killed the drum fish and experts think the blackbirds somehow became disoriented and flew towards the ground. Meanwhile, the Maryland Department of the Environment reported cold water stress exacerbated by a large population of the fish appears to be the cause of the kill in Chesapeake Bay.

This is not merely a U.S. phenomenon. In the United Kingdom, 40,000 velvet swimming crabs died early this year. Authorities believe a sudden temperature drop was the cause. Then, in Italy, another 1,000 birds were mysteriously killed.

Again, what is going on?

That’s what CNN reporter Anderson Cooper asked Kirk Cameron, an atheist-turned-follower of Christ that gained celebrity status as a child actor in “Growing Pains.” Cooper asked the Left Behind movie star if the animal deaths were a sign of the apocalypse.

“Well, I first think that they ought to call a veterinarian, not me. You know, I’m not the religious-conspiracy-theorist go-to guy, particularly,” Cameron said on CNN. “But I think it’s really kind of silly to try to equate birds falling out of the sky with some kind of an end-times theory.”

Cameron went on to say that people love to find codes and signs of future events and see if they can decipher them before anybody else—but that birds falling from the sky has more to with pagan mythology.

Cindy Jacobs of Generals International believes the animal deaths are natural occurrences, however, she adds, there are some interesting thoughts to consider in the wake of this phenomenon. In a video update, she read from Hosea 4:1-3:

“Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.”

“There is a connection biblically between the actions of people who live in a nation and what we might consider natural phenomenon,” Jacobs says. “Sometimes when we pray we can do what it says in 2 Chronicles 7:14 where we pray and repent for sin where we have transgressed God’s law and then what happens after that is God heals the land.”
