The Fowls of Heaven: Is God trying to tell us something by killing red-winged blackbirds?

Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? Job 35:11

You’ve probably heard about the thousands of red-winged blackbirds that fell from the sky on New Year’s Eve in Beebe, Arkansas. Well, that’s got Christians thinking. So I thought I’d help them out with that.

Is God trying to send a message by killing thousands of red-winged blackbirds?

It’s hard to say, but he’s done stuff like that before.

During the Exodus, for example, to punish the people for complaining about the lack of food and water, God sent a great wind that caused several trillion quail to fall from the sky. He forced the people to eat quail until it came out their noses. Literally.

Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days; But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you. … And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth. Numbers 11:19-31

So maybe God was just punishing the people of Beebe for complaining about their food. If so, then the Christians of Beebe should eat every last bird that fell from the sky. Eat them until it comes out their noses, or else God might get angry and send a “very great plague.” That’s what he did to the Israelites.

And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague. Numbers 11:33

I just hope it's not too late. Because if people don't eat the dead birds, birds will be eating dead people in the last supper of the great God.

Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God. … And all the fowls were filled with their flesh. Revelation 19:17-21

What is god trying to tell us by killing the phytoplankton?

Are Our Oceans Dying? Phytoplankton has Declined Terrifying 40% in 60 Years

No, nazani, God is completely unaware of phytoplankton. The smallest things he knows about are the abominable flying, creeping things, which have four feet of Leviticus 11:23.

I guess it's better than eating crow...
