Links: | Jerusalem Post | AP | Photos | 1 |March 14 (Day 73, Freedom): The hands and nose of the an idol of the Virgin Mary were sliced off, and it was spotted by tank fire as Israeli armored forces entered Bethlehem around 1:00 AM (2300 GMT). The Roman Catholic idol is on top of the Holy Family Church. The Bible strictly forbids idolatry, but then, apostate clergy don't believe the Bible. The facade of the church was also pockmarked and the stones were spotted black by bullets and a tank shell.
The statue of the Virgin Mary is atop the head of the Assyrian bull. What the artist probably sold as the horns of the Brazen Altar from the Tabernacle had only two horns on a rounded top. The Brazen Altar had four horns over a sunken mesh grating. The Assyrian bull represents an Angelic Power and the god of war. The Virgin Mary atop the head of the bull combines the goddess of love with the god of war, which is a potent symbol of Baal. The sculpture was demon inspired.
The desecration of the idol by Israeli tank fire symbolized first, the mutilation of the women of the Southern Kingdom of Judah by the Chaldeans in the Fifth Cycle of Discipline in 586 BC.
‘And I will set My jealousy against you, that they may deal with you in wrath. They will remove your nose and your ears; and your last one will fall by the sword. They will take your sons and your daughters; and your last one will be consumed by the fire. (Ezekiel 23:25)Cutting off the nose and ears refers to the mutilation of prisoners captured by the enemy. The Judgment of Judah would be particularly severe because it had not separated from the world after being freed from Egypt but had continued to fornicate with the Egyptians and sign peace treaties with them. "Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help" (Isaiah 31:1).
‘Thus I shall make your lewdness and your harlotry brought from the land of Egypt to cease from you, so that you will not lift up your eyes to them or remember Egypt anymore.’ (Ezekiel 23:27, NAS)The breaking off of the hands of the idol of the Virgin Mary corresponds to the Judgment of the Philistine god, Dagon. When the Philistines captured the Ark of the Covenant and set it beside Dagon, Dagon fell on his face and his head and the palms of his hands broke off (1 Samuel 5:4). The head symbolizes authority. Dagon's head was severed, which means his authority was removed and the authority of his head over his body was removed, i.e. he was killed. The palms of Dagon's hands were also removed. It is generally assumed that the removal of the palms of the hands included the hands, but the Virgin Mary idol had the palms removed but left the right thumb. The palms of the hands are inscribed with the paths of life, and the Philistines had moved the Ark of the Covenant along the wrong path of life to the wrong geographical location. The hands represent service, and the palms of the hands are inscribed with the record of a person's life. The hands, complete with scars, will be part of the Resurrection body.
The right thumb was left on the hand of the Virgin Mary after both palms were broken off. The right hand symbolizes the Right Man and the left the Right Woman, or helping hand (Genesis 2:18). The thumb represents the will, or volition, with which decisions are made to serve the Lord and the Right Man. The line around the right thumb of the Virgin Mary was also left on the statue. The line around the thumb represents the Line of God the Father. When the hand is held with the thumb pointed up toward Heaven, the thumb corresponds to the tree of life in the Garden, and the line around it corresponds to the path that Adam and 'Ishah wore out by using their volition to walk around the tree. The breaking off of all the palm except the thumb and Line of the Father, which is also called the path of life, indicates the Right Man is still alive and making decisions to obey the will of the Father. The missing left hand indicates that the woman is not serving her Right Man. If she is not serving the Right Man, she is not obeying the Lord either.
The statue was spotted. Spots represents the impurity, guilt, or suffering from sin. A spot represents adultery or that which adulterates, taints, stains, makes impure (Lev. 13:2, 4, 19, 23-28, 38-39; 14:56-57; Job 31:7; Eph. 5:27; 1 Tim. 6:14; Ja. 1:27; 1 Pet. 1:19; 2 Pet. 3:14). The color of the spot and location reveal its meaning. When a person doesn't Rebound, spots are left. The Roman Catholic Church teaches confession to a priest, which is heresy. Sins should be confessed to the Father in private. The spotted statue symbolizes a woman who has not Rebounded. The missing palms with only the right thumb remaining along with the path of life, shouts, "Rebound! And keep moving."

He met with Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, and demanded Israeli forces pull back from Palestinian territory. The Israeli Army had already began pulling back from Ramallah in phases, but it is staying in Bethlehem.
Links: | Jerusalem Post |Israeli Defense Minister, Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, is recommending Maj.-Gen. Moshe Ya'alon, 52, as the next Chief of General Staff. Ya'alon is the candidate for the 17th chief of General Staff to replace Lt.-Gen. Shaul Mofaz on July 9, where 9 stands for the Plagues of Egypt.
Moshe is the Hebrew spelling of Moses, which means son in Egyptian. The name, Moses, also means drawn out of the water (Exodus 2:10). The name, Ya'alon, means he will ascend, or go up, which can refer to the promotion or taking the high ground. Moses, who was the crown-prince of Egypt, was the greatest leader in the Bible. He led Israel out of Egypt to the Promised Land. The number, 17, refers to lawlessness, and 52 is for a wall of security. God promotes leaders (James 4:10).

The mutilation of the idol of the Virgin Mary is pregnant with symbolism of the failure of the Church to Rebound and keep moving. The murderous evil perpetrated by terrorists represents cursing that is due because of the failure of the Church to Rebound and keep moving. When the Church fails, evil reigns, which is demonstrated daily in the Middle East. When the Church fails to execute the Spiritual life, the politicians negotiate peace treaties with evil. They defy the Abrahamic Covenant in ignorance, and God curses them, which is precisely what will happen to Zinni.
Today was March 14th, for the Passover. And it was Day 73, for freedom. Israel was given freedom on the Passover after the Lord destroyed Egypt. All week there have been signs of the Plagues of Egypt. Today, symbolized the Passover when Moses led the nation of Israel out of Egypt after God gave them freedom. Moses did not negotiate with Egypt. The Lord killed the Egyptian Army in the Red Sea after destroying the nation with plagues.
