Bret Michael Edmunds, 26, was born September 5, 1975. Four of his biorhythm lines went through critical in the last 48 hours. Edmunds is not a suspect in the kidnapping. Elizabeth was kidnapped June 5th between 1 and 2 AM MDT. The number, 5, stands for a giant, such as Baal. Edmunds checked into the City Hospital at 5:15 AM EDT today.
Links: | Ha'aretz |Palestinian Chairman, Yasser Arafat, said that he would accept the Clinton proposal for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. He said he thought he could make peace with Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, because Sharon supported the Wye agreement. What's significant about Arafat's statement is that it was backed up by the weather angels over Florida who formed the image of a swan looking at the Yucatan.
Hurricane Mitch, which formed during the last two days of the Wye Summit, crossed the Swan Islands of Honduras and sat in the corner of the Yucatan. The right angle of the Yucatan resembles a trumpeter swan. Mitch became a tropical storm on October 22, 1998 and the Wye Agreement was reached early on the morning of October 23rd, 1998. Mitch formed directly south of Wye, Maryland in the Caribbean. It was a devastating Hurricane that sent a large feeder band across Florida from the Yucatan. That feeder band was very close to the same position of the band from the swan on the weather map today.
The trumpeter swan represents the Cross. It flies with its head and legs extended to make the sign of the cross. It also represents Christ, the cornerstone, who brought the two walls of Jews and Gentiles together (Ephesians 2:12-21). The constellation, Cygnus, the Swan, is part of the Star Gospel.
Today, the image of a swan was over Florida. A swan represents an Elect Angelic Commander. It also represents the Cross and Jesus Christ, the cornerstone.
Today was June 21st, for Providential Preventative Suffering. It was Day 172, for the internal gates of the criminal justice system. Two Lebanese brothers were found guilty in North Carolina of conspiracy to support Hizbullah. One was 28, for a cosmic stronghold, and the other was 37, for a warrior. North Carolina is in the region of Judah, which represents the military leadership of the nation. The two brothers were convicted through the internal gates of the criminal justice system - not the external gates of the military.
Today, Arafat repented, changed his mind, for not accepting the Clinton peace proposal for Israel and the Palestinians. He also recalled Wye. However, the weather angels painted a swan over Florida, which was an additional reminder of Wye because Hurricane Mitch at the same time symbolized the swan. As a part of the Wye deal, 750 Palestinian prisoners were released by Israel. That corresponds to West Virginia, which came up in the Elizabeth smart case today. The swan was looking back at the Yucatan just as Arafat was longing for the good ole days of Wye. It could be that Arafat is thinking back over his life because he is getting ready to die, but it is more likely that the Lord is bringing Wye back up so that the results of making peace deals with Baal can be understood. Since Israel made the peace deal with Arafat at Oslo, terrorism has been rampant. The Lord has turned Baal loose to kill innocent civilians. Yet, Israel has not executed a single terrorist; nor has the USA.
The trumpeter swan represents the Cross. The trumpeter swan in the corner of the Yucatan represents Christ the cornerstone, who provided Salvation for both the Jews and Gentiles. However, at Wye the Jews rejected Jesus Christ along with the Arabs. Wye was in 1998, for 'Ichabod, the glory has departed. After the famous Wye agreement, the glory departed from Israel, and it received only cursing. Anybody with an ounce of Bible Doctrine would have known not to sign the Wye deal. Clinton didn't have an ounce. Netanyahu didn't have an ounce. And now President Bush doesn't have an ounce. A so-called Christian who doesn't know the Abrahamic Covenant is a fool.
Today the swan was over Florida. It is another face on the storm that has been over Florida since June 10th. During this time President Bush has been trying to defy the Abrahamic Covenant and give Arafat a Palestinian state. He wants to talk peace, like Clinton, but there is no peace. The storm clouds over Florida are the signs of the Palestinian problem, which has shut down the President and divided his administration. His grand plan for wooing the Arabs has now slapped him in the face - all because of Florida where Christians understand the Abrahamic Covenant and dare not defy it.
The Lord Jesus Christ controls history. He is the true God. He made the covenant with Abraham. He is the one who decides when there will be a Sovereign state - not President Bush. Those who wish to trust their fate to Lord of history must begin with faith in Jesus Christ the Savior, who paid for the sins of the world on the Cross. Salvation is available to Jew or Gentile, but it is only available through faith in Jesus Christ. There is no other Savior.
