Links: | AP | CBS |September 17 (Day 260, Political Babylon): Iraq's decision to allow UN weapons inspectors yesterday, divided the Security Council today. Russia drove a wedge into the Council in support of Iraq and said there was no need for a resolution. Further, meeting to plan for the return of UN weapons inspectors were underway. In agreeing to weapons inspectors, Iraq claimed to be abiding by the will of the Arab League. And Russia whose trade with Iraq is worth billions is in no mood to start a war. So, today, it appears Saddam Hussein has recovered the fumble on the World Stage.

The images on the weather map included an awesome angel that resembled a hawk over Tennessee and the Mississippi River and an elephant off the east coast of the USA. An elephant symbolizes a demon Commander, such as Baal.

The image of an awesome angel that resembled a hawk hovered over Tennessee and the Mississippi River beside a weather elephant in the Atlantic. The Atlantic represents Political Babylon, which is the US foreign policy. It was Day 260, for Political Babylon. The awesome angel hovering over Tennessee represented judgment upon the US for its foreign policy of Baal. It represented the curse of an evil dictator like Saddam Hussein. The US push for a UN Security Council resolution on Iraq is under slavery to the Cosmic System. Tennessee represents the internal gates of the criminal justice system.
President Bush visited Tennessee today. And the Dow fell 172.63, for the production of the Internal Gates of criminal justice (72), and an outcast (63). It closed at 8,207.55, for an historical breakpoint (82); category (7); and grace blessing in suffering (55). The breakpoint occurred after Iraq offered to allow unconditional inspections. Inspections amount to police action, which is a function of the criminal justice system - not the military or foreign policy of a nation. There is no basis under the laws of establishment for policing an enemy nation. The police action would not be necessary if the US leadership had finished the job in Desert Storm. The purpose of war is to annihilate the enemy - not to agree to a peace treaty with a liar. Based upon Russia's attempt today to divide the UN Security Council, it appears that President Bush will not get the UN Security Council resolution he was expecting.
Today was September 17th, for lawlessness. The Palestinians represent lawlessness.
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.
