Links: | Milwaukee J-S | Reuters | Chicago Tribune | Chicago Sun-Times |August 22 (Day 234, Division of the Land): Powerful thunderstorms in the Great Lakes region of Illinois and Wisconsin with 60 mph winds caused flooding and wind damage along with fires and power outages sparked by lighting. Flooding last night and today in Chicago forced closure of some subway lines. And the storm caused up to 3 hour delays at Chicago's two airports. In Milwaukee, lightning set 5 houses on fire, and storm winds toppled hundreds of trees and knocked out power to 56,000. And a blimp broke loose from its moorings and banged into several houses before it finally stopped on a roof. Beaches were closed on Lake Michigan after flood gates were opened to dump untreated sewer water from Chicago and Wilmette, Illinois.

Links: | AP |President Bush in true Republican form went to Oregon to propose logging in national forests. He pointed out that accumulated growth in forests without thinning leads to devastating fires. His solution is to allow logging. Coming from the man who chops down cedar trees to preserve oaks on the prairie, this is somewhat odd. But it is truly the difference between the legalistic Republicans, who support logging, and the lawless Democrats who believe in the law of the jungle. It isn't that the President is wrong, but cutting a tree is no more a crime than smoking a cigarette. If the Democrats couldn't manage the forests because lightning struck them, who will believe that the Republican loggers can manage them any better?

The image of a weather elephant stretched from the northeastern USA to the Great Lakes. A smaller elephant was in the Atlantic off the east coast of the USA. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.

Yesterday's violent thunderstorms set 5 houses afire from lighting in Milwaukee and ripped a blimp loose from its moorings. The blimp corresponds to the image of the whale in the Atlantic on yesterday's weather map. A blimp is like a ship, or large transportation system, in the air.
The President went to Oregon to propose allowing logging in national forests, which the environmental activists oppose. First, there were laws to disallow logging, and now the President is proposing laws to allow logging. There should be a law to keep the government out of the forests in the first place. Government control of forests is outside the scope of government. After the first mistake, all future regulations are simply adding fuel to the fire. It was a bad year for forest fires because of Fire Testing - not because of the environmental activists.
The Dow rose 96.41, for the spoils of victory (96), and happiness (41). The President made his logging proposal in Oregon, which is in the region of Benjamin and corresponds to the spoils of victory. What spoils? The forests that were burned by lighting strikes have now been turned into a Democratic environmentalist failure to log. The President was happy, and the loggers in Oregon were happy. The Iowa tornado was at 41 N. Iowa is in the region of the Merarites, who carried the rigging of the Tabernacle and correspond to Fire Testing. So this was predicted last night by the tornado angels. The dow closed at 9,053.64, for a new order (90), which corresponds to the Jews; a large fish or ship (53), which corresponds to the blimp that broke loose in Milwaukee; and maximum weakness (64). It was the first time the Dow has closed over 9,000 since July 9th. Nine stands for the Plagues of Egypt.
Hurricane Fausto, the auspicious sign, is off Mexico in the Pacific in the region of Ecumenical Babylon. Tropical Storm Rusa formed in the northwest Pacific in the region of Cosmic Babylon. Rusa is the name of the sambar deer. A deer is the symbol of Naphtali and peace. This corresponds to the peace quartet meeting in Paris.
Today was August 22nd, for cursing. Those who support the peace quartet will receive the curse of the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:3). And it was Day 234, for the division of the land. The peace quartet meeting is about the Middle East peace process and the division of the land.
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.
