Links: | AP | ESPN | Reuters | Museum | Orlando Sentinel | 1 | Gainesville Sun | 1 |July 5 (Day 186, Arab Persecution of Jew): Former baseball great, Ted Williams, 83, died today of cardiac arrest. He hit .406 in 1941, which no one has ever done since. He was the Triple Crown Winner, leading the league in batting, home runs, and RBI's, in 1942 and 1947. He enlisted in the Marines in 1942 and became a pilot. He was a pilot trainer in World War II and flew combat missions in a jet in the Korean War. In his final at-bat in 1960 when he was 42, he hit a home run. He played for Boston, which is at 42 N. and wore jersey number 9, which stands for the Plagues of Egypt.
Teddy Samuel Williams was born August 20, 1918, Day 232 in San Diego, but he didn't like the name, Teddy, and had his name changed to Theodore and his birthday changed to August 30th. California in the US corresponds to Israel in Asia. His 23-day biorhythm cycle went through critical today. He died on July 5th, for a giant, such as Baal, Day 186, for the Arab persecution of the Jew. After having breathing problems this morning at his home in Hernando, Florida, he was rushed to the hospital in Inverness where he was pronounced dead. Hernando and Inverness are in Florida's Citrus county #47, for peace.
Ted's father was a photographer who worked nights, and his mother was a Salvation Army activist. Ted and his younger brother were forced to accompany their mother on numerous Salvation Army marches. Two years ago Ted Williams did not know what would happen when he died, but he said he wasn't afraid to die. He was thinking about it, and God was giving him ample opportunity to believe in Christ or Rebound.

Ratsiraka was accompanied by his wife, daughter, two brothers, and diplomats. Ratsiraka's ex-ministers were believed to be on two other planes that flew to the island of Mauritius.
Today, the storms continued over Texas and Florida. There is severe flooding in Texas. Storms have been over Florida since June 10th.
After hitting .406 in 1941, the year for happiness, his life was interrupted in 1942 by the holocaust of the Jews. He played for Boston, which is at 42 N. He retired from baseball when he was 42, and he died in Citrus County #47. Baal and peace were in Ted Williams life from his childhood with his activistic mother until his death in Florida. He was undoubtedly under the curse of Baal as a child. The Salvation Army is apostate to the core, and parading children in the name of religious activism is the hallmark of Baal. Even in his death in Florida the Baal and peace theme echoed. He died in County #47 for peace, and an hour later a 42-year old man was struck and killed by lightning in the same county not far from Williams' home.
The Sovereign Design of God was evident in baseball in 1941, the year Williams hit .406. The same year, DiMaggio had a record 56-game hitting streak. The number, 56, stands for soldiers dropping like dung in the open field, and by December 7th that would come true. Death is God's victory. In it we see the Sovereign Design of God at work in Ted Williams, who was gifted with exceptional sensory perception and motor control. God hardened his heart, and he played for Boston, the team that symbolized the Baal counterattack. Baal may have empowered much of the greatness of Ted Williams, but God was one step ahead of them both. In spite of Baal influence in Williams' life, the end result was the fulfillment of God's Sovereign Design.
Two great hitters in baseball set records in 1941 that have never been broken. One had the best batting average and the other hit successfully in the most games. It was 1941, the year for happiness, and God demonstrated happiness in ways that baseball fans remember still. But by December 7th, the happiness was interrupted with World War II. Baseball with its 9 players and 9 innings, represented the Plagues of Egypt, and Jews were being cursed in the holocaust. Adolph Hitler replaced Pharaoh as the evil king. The great Ted Williams wore jersey number, 9. The War was an opportunity for greater victory and greater happiness than baseball could symbolize. But that super abundant Happiness would only be available to mature believers. Neither Williams nor DiMaggio ever knew anything about that Happiness.
The glory of the world pales in comparison to the rewards of eternity. Ted Williams will get no credit for the Baal assists when he stands before the Review Tribunal of Christ - assuming that he was a Christian.
There was one tornado near Garden City, Texas at 31 N., for an evil king, and 101 W., for unity. Former Madagascar President, Didier Ratsiraka, went into exile today. He had behaved as the evil king. The two-headed monster in Madagascar has now been defeated. The implication is that Arafat will not be far behind.
Today was July 5th, for a giant, such as Baal. And it was Day 186, for the Arab persecution of Israel.
The Lord Jesus Christ controls human history per the Sovereign Design of God. It, therefore, is totally deterministic. The Lord Jesus Christ is also looking out for individuals. He paid for the sins of the world so that anyone who wants Eternal Life can have it simply by relying upon Him. There is Salvation in none other. The only way of Salvation is a way that solves the problem of sin. The Lord Jesus Christ did that when He paid for the sins of the world on the Cross. God the Father was satisfied with the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
"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).
