The terrorist are members of a 15-member Hamas terror cell that is suspected of carrying out 8 attacks in recent months in which 35 people were killed. The group is suspected of carrying out the suicide bombings at a Jerusalem cafe in March that killed 11 Israelis and in a Tel Aviv suburb that killed 15 Israelis. An Arab painter from Hebrew University, who is believed to have planted the bomb in the university cafeteria, was one of the five arrested.

The group included Vice President Cheney, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Gen. Richard Myers, and National Security Adviser, Condoleezza Rice.

They also discussed progress in the development of missile defenses.

The image of a whale was in the Atlantic off the east coast of the USA. An whale represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.

Thus, the meeting of military leaders with Bush in Texas was heralded by a tornado in North Carolina, which is in the region of military leadership. They were preparing a budget, which is to be approved by the federal judiciary. This was heralded by the tornado in South Dakota. The meeting in Texas was on the south side of the USA over against South Dakota. A whale was off the coast of North Carolina in the region of Political Babylon. This translates into the attack of Baal from Political Babylon on the military budget. Thus, there is still lack of sanctification in the US military. Without sanctification there can be no real victory.
Israel arrested 5 terrorists who were involved in the Hebrew University bombing that killed 5 Americans and 4 Israelis. The number, 5, stands for a giant, such as Baal.
The Dow rose 85.16, for and eye or spy (85) and sanctification (16). An eye represents grace. There appeared to be a lack of sanctification in the military budget planning in Texas as heralded by the tornadoes. The dow closed at 8,957.23, for an authority counterattack (89); Zebulun (57); and a Spiritual uptrend (23). Since Zebulun corresponds to Florida and the Palestinians, this can also mean an authority counterattack associated with the Palestinians along with a Spiritual uptrend. Israel's withdrawal from Gaza and Bethlehem, as backed by the Bush Administration, is due to an authority counterattack.
As the President gathered his military advisors on his farm in Texas, a farm worker was struck by lightning in the field and killed in Florida. Rumsfeld was dressed in a wool suit in the Texas heat, which is devastating in August. The question arises: Was Rumsfeld out of line with authority in his work clothes on the farm, or was the President out of line with authority for calling him down to his farm? In general, work should be conducted from the work environment.
Tropical Storm Fausto, the auspicious sign, was named today off Mexico in the Pacific in the region of Ecumenical Babylon. And it was flooding in China in the region of Cosmic Babylon.
Today was August 21st, for Providential Preventative Suffering.
The military budget that will be required to conquer Iraq appears to be an authority counterattack from Political Babylon. Rumsfeld, one of the few truth tellers, may be under an authority counterattack to prepare to attack Iraq. So, the one person known for telling the truth, is being directed to prepare a lie. This is what makes Christians the catalysts of conflict. They are not supposed to lie or support a lie. Did Rumsfeld bow to the lie, or stand for the truth?
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.
