June 7 (Day 158, Levite):  US missionary, Martin Burnham, 42, of Rose Hill, Kansas, was killed in a gun battle between Filipino troops and Abu Sayyaf Muslim terrorists.  Burnham's wife, Gracia, 43, survived with a gunshot in the right thigh, which required surgery at a military hospital.  Deborah Yap, a Filipino nurse, who was being held hostage, was also killed.  Four Abu Sayyaf terrorists were killed and 7 soldiers of the Scout Rangers were wounded in the 2-hour gun battle between Sibuco and Sirawai on the main island of Mindanao in the southern province of Zamboanga del Norte.  The approximate location of capture was 7 N., for a category, and 122 E., for cursing.  After tracking the terrorists, the Filipino Scout Rangers caught up with them when they stopped to rest under trees in a rainstorm.

After the ordeal, Gracia said:

"I was so happy when I got out of the jungle," she told doctors in Zamboanga. And she said her husband's death was part of God's plan: "That is God's liking. That is probably his destiny."1
The Burnhams were sponsored by the New Tribes Mission from Sanford, Florida, which has had 24 missionaries kidnapped in the last 20 years.  The Burnhams were kidnapped from a resort while celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary on Palawan island, southwest of Luzon, on May 27, 2001, Day 147.

Martin was born September 19, 1959, Day 262, and Gracia was born January 17, 1959.  Martin's biorhythm was not even critical on the day of his death, but Gracia's biorhythm went through a triple critical of the 23-day, 28-day, and 38-day cycles.  From the biorhythms, it is obvious that Gracia was carrying the marriage Spiritually.  She was even happy on the day of Martin's death, which she should have been as a Christian, but it is unusual.  Both were born in 1959, for Simeon criminality.  They spent over a year in the jungle as captives of terrorists.  Martin was born on Day 262, for the end.  He died in the wilderness at age 42, for Baal, the bear, and Russia.

Maryland's famous Wye Oak was toppled in the storm that hit the Washington DC area yesterday.  The 460-year-old white oak was believed to be the oldest in the USA.  It fell across Route 662 in the village of Wye Mills, Talbot County at 5:10 PM EDT (2110 GMT).  The number, 662, stands for the end (62) of worldliness (66).

Mubarak Visits Bush at Camp David

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is visiting President Bush at Camp David.  They will have dinner together accompanied only by their national security advisors.  Tomorrow the meetings will include Vice President Cheney and Secretary of State Powell.  Bringing Egypt to Washington is just as bad as going down to Egypt.  Both bring cursing (Isaiah 31:1).

Bush at Iowa Pork Expo

President Bush attended the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa.  The halo over his head is not the sign of an angel.  It is an artificial sundog, which is a symbol of suffering.
SPC Storm Report, 6-6-02 Hog, 6-8-02, 0215 GMT, NOAA


At least 4 tornadoes were reported in the USA.  The first tornado was in Jefferson County, West Virginia west of Shephardstown at 39 N., for the sin unto death, and 77 W., for reverse process reversionism.  The second was in Frederick, Maryland at 39 N. and 77 W.  The third was at North, Virginia at 37 N., for a warrior, and 76 W., for skill.  The fourth was at Elkwood, Virginia at 38 N., for dying in the wilderness, and 77 W.

The tornadoes formed a circle around Washington, DC.  The other severe weather reports were most concentrated in the same area,  which was under yesterday's weather elephant.  There were at least 61 hail and 77 wind damage reports.  One person was critically injured when a tree blew down on a car in West Charlottesville, Virginia.

Today, Florida was covered with thunderstorms.  The image over Florida resembled a hog, while elephants stretched through the Great Lakes and through western Texas.  A hog represents a Jewish reversionist, and an elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.

Topical Storm 07W

Tropical Storm 07W is in the northwest Pacific north of the Philippines.  It is moving east with 35 knot winds.


Four tornadoes were reported.  They formed a circle around Washington, DC where most of the severe weather was concentrated.  Strong winds toppled Maryland's famous Wye Oak.  The severe weather in Washington, DC coincided with President Bush's speech yesterday in which he called for a new government bureaucracy to handle Homeland Security.  He had a 28-page report, where 28 stands for a cosmic stronghold, or storm.  It stormed in Washington, DC.  Granted the President's proposal was not all that smart, but there must have been something behind it to arouse the weather angles to kick over an historic landmark.  What was behind it is the real crisis that lurks for the USA.  Bush's wild plan for a new department is just one of the symptoms.

Today, President Bush visited the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa.  The image of a hog appeared over Florida along with severe thunderstorms most of the day.

US missionary, Martin Burnham, 42, was killed in the Philippines, while his wife, Gracia, 43, survived.  The Philippines are islands off the region of Zebulun in Asia.  Florida is in the region of Zebulun in the USA.  Martin was killed when his captors stopped to rest during a rain storm.  He was 42, for Baal, the bear, and Russia.  When he died, his wife was freed.  She was happy when he died.  Her biorhythms reflected today's crisis.  His did not.  She recognized the Sovereign Design of God in the death of her husband.  God decides the time, place, and manner of death.  Martin was born on Day 262, for the end.  It was his life that ended in the wilderness.  He and his wife were kidnapped while they were celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary.  He was 41, for happiness.  She was 42.  They both lived through age 42 under the slavery to Baal in the wilderness.  Their kidnapping was related to their marriage.  A bad marriage will lead to slavery to Baal.  A bad marriage is marrying someone who has not advanced through Spiritual Warfare.

The Burnhams were kidnapped on May 27, 2001, Day 147, for peace.  They were kidnapped in the Philippines, which are islands off the coast of Zebulun.  The Palestinians at Gaza have also been associated with Zebulun.  Here is an excerpt from the news report on May 27, 2001:

Today, the new ASS (Assistant Secretary of State) for Near Eastern Affairs, William Burns met with Yasser Arafat and Ariel Sharon.  He was the ASS promised after the unveiling of the Mitchell Report.  He finally made it to meet with Arafat and Sharon.  But even as the terrorist bombs were exploding in Jerusalem, he carried a message of "Peace, peace."  That is the same message that the wimp politicians in Israel and Egypt were discussing prior to the annihilation of Jerusalem in 586 BC.  They said, "Peace, peace" but there was no peace (Jeremiah 6:14).
The Burnhams were kidnapped by terrorists associated with bin Laden.  The Muslim worship of Baal includes the annihilation of Jews and Christians.  Martin Burnham may not have had much of a Spiritual Life, but he died today to send a message to President Bush that Muslim terrorists are out to destroy us.

But President Bush is entertaining Hosni Mubarak, the President of Egypt, and friend of Muslim terrorists like Arafat.  Now, Bush will have to decide during his cozy meetings with one of the most evil leaders on earth, if he believes the death of Martin Burnham or if he believes the Islamic lies of Mubarak, who is the devil's spokesman.  If Bush cannot figure out good from evil this week-end, then woe to the USA.

NASA's Orbiter Endeavour docked with the Space Station today.

Bible Doctrine

This is Bible Doctrine, which explains Marriage Culture.  The death of Martin Burnham at age 42 can only be understood by applying Bible Doctrine.  Death is God's victory.  Hopefully Burnham's death will haunt President Bush all week-end.  Without Bible Doctrine marriages are doomed to slavery to Baal.  And without Bible Doctrine in the nation, Presidents are doomed to slavery to Baal.  Taking the President of Egypt to Camp David to discuss giving away the Promised Land in defiance of the Abrahamic Covenant is so brash as to arouse the dread of what God will do.  He will defend the Abrahamic Covenant.

President Bush visited a swine festival today prior to meeting with Mubarak.  Both the Muslims and the Jews think pork is unclean.  The hog over Florida was a reminder of Bush's visit to the World Pork Expo.  And Florida is associated with the Palestinians.  So Florida was covered in thunderstorms today.  Bible Doctrine is screaming.  It doesn't take another Washington bureaucracy to fight a handful of terrorists.  It takes a leader with the backbone to kill the enemy, which neither the US nor Israel has.  Peace is not the issue.  War is the issue.

People without Bible Doctrine get into convoluted logic from scar tissue of the soul.  They think peace is required before making war.  They look at war, and try to negotiate peace.  They capture the enemy, but are afraid to execute them.

There is absolute right and wrong, but the only way to know it is to know God.  Those who think under the power of the devil will never get it straight.  It is impossible to think under the power of God without Salvation.  Salvation is freely available to all who want it.  Jesus Christ paid for the sins of the entire world so that Salvation can be received by all who want it.

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31). "Everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have Eternal Life" (John 3:16b).
