In response to Does The Bible Say Dead Birds Will Fall From the Sky?

Does the bible talk about dead birds falling from the sky and fish dying in the sea as signs in the bible?

Brad

Answer:

In the original response found here we stated that the verses in Hosea and Zephaniah referring to the death of birds and fish was an ancient prophecy that had already been fulfilled during the days of the prophets Zephaniah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel found in the sixth century BC on the Biblical timeline.  A reader argued otherwise stating that in each case God extends the prophecy to the last days or to all unrighteous people.

(the scriptures below link to King James Bible with links to commentaries under them):
Ezekiel 14:12-21 says that when a nation gets to a certain level of sinfulness, God starts killing the animals (Jer 12:4)

Birds in the sky

If you look at Zephaniah, God expands the prophecy to include His judgment on the entire earth: Zeph 2:8-14, 3:8-10.

Hosea 4:3 could be taken as a principle that God kills off birds, fish, beasts as a warning when a nation sins (Ezekiel 14)
