A pod of 149 melon-headed whales beached themselves in Hokota, Japan, on Friday morning. Rescuers reportedly only saved three before calling off their rescue efforts before dark Friday evening.
A coastguard official said they see one or two whales washing ashore every year, but this may be the first time over 100 were found on the beach.
The whales generally swim deep in the sea and officials say the cause for the stranding is unknown. One scientist suggested they may have become “lost.”
For whatever reason, these whales and hundreds of others have stranded and died throughout the world in recent years.
The Word of God tells us this will happen in the last days.
“The land shall mourn and everyone that dwells therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, the fowls of heaven, yes, the fishes of the sea shall also be taken away” Hosea 4:3.
This is just one of the signs confirming that we are living in the last days. People need to repent and prepare for the return of the Lord.
Jesus said that before His return there will be signs in heaven and on earth.
“There shall be signs in the sun and in the moon, in the stars and upon the earth, distress of nations with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring” Luke 21:25.
From this, and numerous other passages of prophetic scripture, we are told that there will be severe weather outbreaks (Isaiah 28:2), earthquakes (Matthew 24:7), signs in heaven (Acts 2:20 – such as the “blood moons” on each of Israel’s feast days in 2014-15) and animals languishing and being “taken away” (Hosea 4:3).
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining will surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
