Q. I live in Louisiana and recently the news reported that hundreds of birds in a small Arkansas town just fell dead out of the sky. At a time they should have been on their perches, they were flying and just fell dead. It has also happened in two separate towns here in Louisiana and it has happened in other countries. In your opinion does it have anything to do with end time events and is there any proof in the bible at all regarding this? Just too much strange stuff going on here recently.
A. There are also reports of large numbers of fish mysteriously dying in various places, and before these we learned that a big percentage of the bee population has simply disappeared. As far as I’m aware there is no direct prophetic significance to these events. They could easily have environmental causes due to our disregard for the poisoning of our air and water, but they’re not mentioned among the “birth pangs” the Lord said would precede the End of the Age (Matt. 24:4-8).
