Links: | Reuters |January 19 (Day 19, Federal Judiciary): Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director, Robert Mueller, went down to Egypt for security talks. He is in Cairo. Mueller is the highest ranking US official to visit Egypt since September 11, 2001. General Richard Myers, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the US ambassador to the United Nations, John Negroponte, are going down to Egypt later today for separate meetings. They will also go to Cairo. Egypt is the second biggest recipient of US aid after Israel, and one of the US's biggest foreign policy blunders. As Isaiah said, "Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help" (Isaiah 31:1). A special curse follows visits to Egypt, which symbolizes the world, i.e. the Cosmic System of Satan. Going down to Egypt is like visiting Pharaoh in the time of Moses.

The note scrawled with soap on the mirror said, "all Americans must die" in addition to other threats. Virgin Atlantic Flight 27 landed safely in Keflavik about 25 miles from Reykjavik where the incident is being investigated. The passengers will spend the night there and continue tomorrow. The flight was carrying about 357 passengers and crew. Keflavik is at 64 N., for weakness, and 22 W., for cursing. Iceland, which is the northernmost island in Europe, is in the region of Benjamin, the wolf who ate the spoils of victory.

Before leaving the exhaust from a C-17 cargo plane hurled a metal pallet through a tent where several Marines were sleeping and two sustained minor injuries. The Marines were relieved by the US 101st Airborne Division. The focus has shifted from fighting the Taliban to rebuilding the devastated country. The number, 101, stands for the production of unity. With the Taliban and al-Qa'eda defeated, the government of Afghanistan is unified.
The pallet rolling through the tent was a sign of the dream of the loaf of barley bread that rolled through the Midianite tent prior to Gideon's battle with the Midianites (Judges 7:13-14). The signs of RIF's like the RIF's of Gideon's army foretold the beginning of the Afghan War (Reference 9-18-01, 9-19-01, 10-24-01, 11-12-01). Now that the war is over, in retrospect, the US used very few ground troops, and the Afghans fought each other until the Taliban and al-Qa'eda were destroyed. The Midianites destroyed each other in Gideon's battle. The battle is the Lord's (1 Samuel 17:47).

Today a weather elephant stretched from the east coast to Texas in the USA. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal. The first snowstorm of the season hit the eastern US.
The weather elephant over the eastern USA was over Kentucky, Washington, DC, North Carolina, and Virginia. The FBI Director and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff came from the Washington, DC area. The 101st Airborne Division is from Kentucky, which was covered in snow. And the Marines are from North Carolina. The Virgin Atlantic flight corresponds to Virginia, the region of the virgin.
Virgin Atlantic flight 27 was diverted to Iceland after a verbal terrorist threat. It may appear overreaction in retrospect, but many of the disasters from terrorists have been because people didn't take the threat seriously. If this person makes it to Orlando, he or she will face federal charges. Iceland is in the region of Benjamin, who represents the spoils of victory.
Today the US Marines left Kandahar, and the Army's 101 Airborne Division took over. This was the symbolic division between the war and the spoils of victory. Benjamin is a sign of both (Genesis 49:27). A metal pallet blew through a Marine tent, which corresponded to the loaf of barley bread that hit the Midianite tent in a dream before Gideon's battle. This was a reminder that the Lord won the Afghan War. Where are all the arrogant calls for "Jihad?"
