Links: | Jerusalem Post | BBC News | CNN | Map |March 3 (Day 62, The End): A Palestinian sniper near Ofra sat on a hilltop under an olive tree and killed 10 Israelis and wounded 4 others before his World War II carbine was disabled by Israeli fire. Seven soldiers and 3 civilians were killed in the attack on an army checkpoint north of the Jewish settlement of Ofra between Ramallah and Nablus. The attack was at 6:30 AM. At 7:30 Palestinian terrorists ambushed another Israeli checkpoint at shift change and killed one soldier and wounded 4. The attack was near a guard post south of the Kissufim crossing in the Gaza Strip. Yesterday a bomb in Jerusalem killed 9 Israelis. Israeli leaders promised constant pressure on the Palestinians in response.
Ofra is the name, Ophrah, (1 Samuel 13:17), which was one of the cities attacked by the Philistines when Israel finally got up the nerve to attack the Philistine terrorists but didn't have any weapons because the Philistines had confiscated all of them. Ofra, or Ophrah, means a young deer, or fawn. The deer symbolizes peace. Ophrah is described in the Battle of Michmash.

An army patrol spotted the lion carrying the man. When they shot at the lion, it dropped the man and ran. This is a symbol of Satan as the roaring lion seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

However, the terrorist attack on Ofra, or Ophrah, is a parallel to Jonathan's great victory over a vastly superior army of the Philistines. Ophrah was one of the three cities attacked by Philistine terrorists to draw Israel out to be defeated. However, Jonathan went straight for the Philistine headquarters at Michmash and won a great victory. Afterward there was an earthquake. There was also an earthquake today in Afghanistan after the third major Palestinian terrorist attack in two days. Afghanistan is in the region of the Gershonites, the outcasts. The Palestinians claim to be fighting for their land, but they should be kicked out. It isn't their land. Now, after Jonathan kicked the Philistines in the head, their army began in-fighting, and Israel was delivered by the hand of the Lord. However, the victory was not nearly what it could have been if Saul had been a good leader.
The Bible teaches Israel to kill the enemy - not negotiate peace treaties with terrorists. Both the US and Israeli armies have the same problem, they don't seem to understand that the objective is to kill the enemy. If George Bush and Ariel Sharon don't get off their butts and kill the enemy neither one is going to be remembered as a great leader. The time has come for military leadership - not political compromise. Freedom is possible, when the enemy is dead.
US diplomacy is responsible for Palestinian power. The US government has continued to condone these terrorist thugs and has not even made a call for justice. All that the US State Department has done is recognize Israel's right to self defense. The US has yet to execute the first terrorist captured in the Afghan war. As long as there is no justice, terrorism will continue to escalate. The world has been led to believe the devil's lie that the Palestinians are fighting Israeli occupation. On the contrary, the Israelis are fighting Palestinian occupation. The Palestinians have no right to even live on the land per the Abrahamic Covenant. If the Israelis believed the Torah, they would kick the Palestinians into the Dead Sea.
A lion killed a man in South Africa and was carrying him around when spotted by an army patrol. The man was believed to be from Mozambique, which is the region of Africa that corresponds to Zebulun. Zebulun corresponds to Florida and the Palestinians at Gaza. South Africa is in the region of Reuben, the adulterer. This is a symbol of Satan as the roaring lion seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). The mass murder of Israelis today from Palestinian terrorists was really the work of Satan, the roaring lion. Israel's only hope is to return to the God of Israel through faith in Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
A powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake rattled northeastern Afghanistan today at 36 N., for Ai, and 70 W., for a pastor-teacher. It struck at 4:38/06 PM, where 38 is for dying in the wilderness and 6 is for a man. Yesterday, six US soldiers were injured and one was killed in the battle in the Gardez mountains. An earthquake is the judgment of Ecumenical Babylon, which includes the false religion of Islam. An earthquake also occurred after Jonathan's victory over the Philistine headquarters at Michmash.
And in Madagascar, the self-proclaimed President has almost driven the country into anarchy and civil war. This is a great example of what the 2000 US Presidential elections would have been like had the Democratic protesters gotten their way in Florida. Madagascar is off the coast of Mozambique, which corresponds to Zebulun, Florida, and the Palestinians at Gaza. Madagascar is an Island that represents the first line of defense of the nation. The first line of defense is now sinking into anarchy due to the leadership of the two-headed monster.
Typhoon Mitag intensified to 105 knots in the northwest Pacific off the Philippines. The Philippines are islands off the coast of the area of Zebulun in Asia, which corresponds to Florida and the Palestinians at Gaza. Mitag means "my eyes." The eye of the telescope on the NASA STS-109 Mission patch was full of spots, as well as a picture of a typhoon. Mitag became a typhoon on the day of the launch of STS-109. It was launched from Florida. STS-109 stands for the production of the Plagues of Egypt. Egyptian President Mubarak is in Washington, DC for talks with President Bush tomorrow. Cursing awaits all who depend upon Egypt for help.
Today was March 3rd, for the Justice of the Holy Spirit. And it was Day 62, for the end.
