Skip to comments.End Times? Texas Lake Turns Blood-Red
Posted on 08/02/2011 7:52:10 AM PDT by edpc
A Texas lake that turned blood-red this summer may not be a sign of the End Times, but probably is the end of a popular fishing and recreation spot.
A drought has left the OC Fisher Reservoir in San Angelo State Park in West Texas almost entirely dry. The water that is left is stagnant, full of dead fish and a deep, opaque red.
The color has some apocalypse believers suggesting that OC Fisher is an early sign of the end of the world, but Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries officials say the bloody look is the result of Chromatiaceae bacteria, which thrive in oxygen-deprived water.

If the Cubs win the World Series, I'll fret.
As well you should......
Git a grip. The end times are here. Running out every minute. But, until Christ calls Home His Church, the Body of Christ, to meet Him in the air and the Church is GONE, nothing happens. Then the 7 years of trib start. Only then. Other wise, this is all guess work. I don’t worry about it. One way or the other, I know where I will be. And, it won’t be down here in the Trib.
We just drove through the Texas pan handle on the way to the Grand Canyon, incredibly dry, entire river beds were mere sand, bone dry. Hope they get some rain soon, they need it bad, so do we, but nothing compared to Texas ...
That bastard has ruined at least one wall everywhere I’ve lived.
If you think about it, the Rapture will probably be the TRIGGER for the Tribulation.
Can you imagine a world with the Holy Spirit’s influence suddenly GONE?
Always carry, always be ready.
When you see his big red belly comin’, unload.
According to “Back to the Future Part 2”,it happens in 2015!
Great Mothra has already hatched. Now we have to find those two Japanese fairy chicks.
“If the Cubs win the World Series..”
Well, we’re safe for at least 50 years then.
Approaching eleven months of no rain here in oil patch city, SE NM. Just day after day of unrelenting sun and heat.
That's the trouble with tribbles.......
Silly... that isn’t a shuttle artifact. It is OBVIOUSLY a dinosaur egg that has hatched. Sheesh!
That's just silly. Folks are SAVED during the tribulation. How can that be if the Spirit is gone?
I always thought that Nacogdoches was full of roaches!
Given a pre-trib rapture assumption,
there will be a time between when all the saved folks are yanked away, and when the first tribulation era Christian gets saved.
The “restrainer” will be gone for a period of time.
Plus, the chaos of all the missing people will indeed cause massive hardship for those left behind.
Great article, thanks!
Thats blood red?
to see “blood” red, maybe you have to be snorkeling in it.
Texas certainly needs our prayers!
I’ve got a couple of stock tanks that will turn red like that in drought. They’re so nasty I fenced them so I can shut the gate when they do that. Plus on the flat land it just turns into mud and is dangerous. Thank goodness Dad built another pond down by the creek that’s spring fed. All I’ve got is two old milk cows who are basically pets now, a couple of horses and a spitting mean llama that stays with the few goats. lol
A bit of perspective:
The “lake” had been around several decades and was named for Clark Fisher, longtime congresscritter for that congressional district, who was a very conservative Democrat. But he of course still brought home the bacon.
The current drought has exacerbated a long term drought in that area. This lake - which back in the early 60’s had a lot of water in it from blessed rains - has been going dry for years.
To complicate matters, the lake is located where a Texas State Park and Natural Area is also located. It was created to feature the flora and fauna of the semi-arid land. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has been turning semi-arid into arid for quite some time.
I say “complicate matters” because part of the charm was to have been having this big lake set right in the middle of this semi-arid land, for interesting contrast in promoting visits to the state park, hiking, camping, picnicking and the rest.
If the Detroit Lions win the Superbowl I’ll fret.....................
I am not particularly fond of pre-trib... or at least the way most folks consider it - The Bible CLEARLY says that it is at the sound of the 7th trumpet that the rapture occurs. Nice to miss out on the bowls and vials, and all, but we should know to look for the trumpets (and the thunders) cuz we are gonna see that much at the least. And if one reads the results of those trumpet signs, one could dare to say that there is a bunch of 'the tribulation' going on there. And IF Christians are all taken up before then, who exactly are the martyrs who are prophesied?
The restrainer will be gone for a period of time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. (KJV)
Actually, I think you had better look at 2 Thess 2 more closely... And there is no passage which identifies the 'restrainer' as the Spirit. That is nothing but an ill conceived assumption.
As I asserted earlier, the Spirit is the primary force leading folks to salvation, and guidance thereafter - If there are to be tribulation saints, and saved survivors (which there ARE), it is inherent in the process that the Spirit is present.
Can you imagine a world with the Holy Spirits influence suddenly GONE?
That is the common consensus amongst "accurate" end-times teachers and students. The Rapture of the Church will most likely be the catalyst for everything falling apart world wide.
I saw a story recently about a Texas lake that had drawn so shallow, the feral pigs were wading in and eating the nearly-beached fish.
Tyler will soon be like Odessa.
Don’t fret, the Mayan’s say 12/21/2012 no more worry. LOL
“If the Detroit Lions win the Superbowl...”
I’m a Christian bible student who does NOT believe the ‘rapture’ doctrine, but if I’m wrong and the Packers are raptured on outta here, then Detroit has a shot at the division title... but no higher.
By the way, anyone could walk down the streets filming in Detroit and possibly convince rapture believers that the grand spiritual migration has begun....
...half the people gone, every other building abandoned, nothing there but death, disease and DemonCrats...
Left Behind... in Detroit... yikes!
It’s not a sea, it’s a lake. A dried up one at that. Sorry, end timers .... I’m not buyin’ it.
It’s a non-productive argument to try to “prove” your views to someone else with another eschatology.
However, it DOES have an effect on how you live.
If you’re a “things will get better and better until Christ comes” eschatologist, you’ll be sticking your kids in public school to “be salt and light”, exposing them to the corruption of the world to try to “uncorrupt” it.
If you’re a “as in the days of Noah” believer, you’ll “be ye separate” with your family to shelter and protect them from the ever increasing corruption.
Indeed - and apparently the much redder hue of the RED River has never provoked such concern.
Sad... I went to ASU (Angelo State University) and then on into the military.. Goodfellow AFB was the last base I was stationed at (In San Angelo, Texas).. Those were good times :/
***The color has some apocalypse believers suggesting that OC Fisher is an early sign of the end of the world,***
Aw for heaven’s sake! The same thing hapened to my neighbor’s swimming pool a few years back. A little chrlorine and new filter cleaned it up nicely.
They need to let some water through the dams :/
I used to go fishing with my father in Juno, Texas(population 8)(Devil’s River).. last time I went there (about 30 years ago..) it was less than a trickle, pretty must dry :/
Lake Travis is sitting at about 50% of its capacity, but dropping about one foot per week.
The next time he came out of the pool, did he happen to have 7 heads and 10 horns...?
I initially read that as federal pigs; but then I realized I repeat myself.
After looking at that chart, I’m glad not to be living in Lamar County these days.
We have not even had an inch of rain since last October.
The conditions out here are horrible.
