New sign of the apocalypse: Texas lake turns blood-red

Pin it

In the opening of the above video, Indiana preacher Paul Begley eloquently screams, "The water's turning red! The water's turning red like blood! Are you serious?? Whaaa?" He's referring to the OC Fisher Reservoir in San Angelo State Park, located in West Texas, which has dried-up and turned blood-red. But the reservoir hasn't gone dry and red due to the crippling drought occurring across Texas; it's occurring, apparently, because an angel poured its bowl into the sea, turning the water into blood.

Scientific thoughts on the matter relate the red color to a build-up of algae in the nearly dry body of water. But end-timers won't be satisfied by explanations not involving horsemen, "bible signs," and/or Barack Obama as the Antichrist.

In all seriousness, the drought in Texas is one of the worst, if not the worst, in their state history. Maybe it's time to start paying more attention to the ways we're changing global weather patterns, causing more and more extreme weather events. We should take this blood lake as a sign, but I've got a feeling it's got more to do with fossil fuels than with the return of Christ.
