The Israeli agreement with the Palestinians was heralded by a shooting spree in Mississippi in which 5 law enforcement officers from three branches of law enforcement were shot, i.e. 2 police, 2 sheriff's deputies, and 1 Department of Corrections officer. The number, 5, stands for a giant, such as Baal. The shootings were in Friars Point. Friar is Latin for brother. The law enforcement brothers were shot by a demon inspired criminal under the power of Baal. Mississippi is in the region that represents Law Enforcement of the police. The Israeli-Palestinian agreement was a law enforcement security agreement with Baal. Friars Point is on the Mississippi River, where the river represents the female in Marriage Culture. Friars Point is at 34 N., for the division of the land, and 90 W., for a new order.

The Mississippi bandit turned himself in about 6:30 AM CDT, and by 6:45 AM CDT a fire in an oil storage tank was sending black smoke into the sky in east Houston. The fire represented Fire Testing associated with the holocaust. The Houston oil fire also heralded Israel's stupid agreement with the Palestinians. Israel's Defense Minister, Ben-Eliezer, who negotiated the agreement was wearing a blue shirt for hardness of the heart. Israel's weak attitude toward killing their enemies is due to hardness of the heart, which turns men into wimps. East Houston is the spiritual side of Houston. And it was Day 230, for a Spiritual uptrend in history. The spiritual precedes the temporal. Today was August 18th, for a pillar, which represents maximum historical impact. A pillar of smoke rose from Houston, the symbol of Fire Testing and the holocaust.
Jesus Christ spoke the simple truth on earth. Those who believed in Him were saved. They were delivered from their life of Spiritual death into the kingdom of Eternal Life. Everyone born into this life is born with the sin of Adam. That sin is passed down through the male sperm. A person is born physically alive but spiritually dead. He is cut off from God in darkness. He cannot understand spiritual things without a spirit. Spiritual regeneration is necessary to know God. Anyone can know God who is willing to follow God's procedure for Salvation, which is:
"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).
Belief in Jesus Christ can be expressed in the privacy of the soul to God the Father: "Father, I believe in Jesus Christ." God will honor any request for Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
