Links: | Ha'aretz | Nahalal | Megiddo | 1 |February 11 (Day 42, Baal, the Bear, Russia): Israeli Astronaut, Ilan Ramon, who died in the Columbia disaster, was buried this afternoon in a private ceremony in the military cemetery of Ramat David Air Base in the city of Nahalal. The cemetery has a panoramic view of the Jezreel Valley near the hill of Megiddo, which is called Armageddon. According to his wife, she and Ilan and friends from Nahalal used to love to sit there and look at the valley. Nahalal is in the inheritance of Zebulun, which corresponds to Florida in the USA. Nahalal was the place of Ilan's birth, and the place many of Israel's war heroes are buried. Ilan also trained at nearby Ramat David Air Base. Ramat David Air Base was built by the British Royal Air Force in 1942. This was Day 42, for Baal, the bear, and Russia.
The burial of Ilan Ramon in the location where the Battle of Armageddon will be fought adds credence to the symbolism of the Second Advent associated with his death. His death came as Columbia streaked like lightning during re-entry on a west-to-east trajectory, which corresponds to the description of the Second Advent (Matthew 24:27-28; Revelation 1:7-8). The F-16 fighter jets at Ramat David are called in Hebrew, barak, meaning lightning.
Ilan carried holocaust remembrances aboard Columbia. He was buried on Day 42 near the Ramat David air base, which was built in 1942 by the British to fight the Germans in World War II. US Army Air Corps B-24's first flew out of Ramat David in 1942. As in many of the wars in Israeli history, World War II, had parallels to the Second Advent. Hitler was like the Army of the North, and Japan was like the Army of the East. Those who laugh at the parallel, don't understand the Bible. Although World War II was not the final Battle of Armageddon, it symbolized it, complete with nuclear bombs. And Ramat David air base in the Jezreel Valley symbolized the location of the final Battle of Armageddon when the Lord Jesus Christ will return and conquer the enemies of Israel. The Lord delivered Israel in World War II just as he delivered David (Psalm 18) and many other Israeli kingdoms throughout history. The book of Isaiah, or the other books of the Prophets, cannot be understood without a thorough comprehension of the Second Advent.
The inheritance of the Tribe of Zebulun runs through the Valley of Jezreel where the Battle of Armageddon will be fought. Zebulun is responsible for air and sea defense. British sea commandos received parachute training at Ramat David during World War II. Ilan Ramon, 48, war born in Zebulun (Joshua 19:14-16), and his last mission was from the region of Zebulun at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. He died at age, 48, for the inheritance of the Levites, which is an icon of the Promised Land. Nahalal, the city of his birth and burial, was one of the cities in the inheritance of the Levites (Joshua 21:34-35). One of the Bible passages that Rick Husband, the Commander of Columbia, quoted from memory prior to his death was LORD's command to Joshua to cross the Jordan and conquer the enemies of Israel (Joshua 1:1-9). The first battle for the Promised Land, the Battle of Jericho, symbolizes the Second Advent, complete with the trumpet of God.
The sign of a sickle was over California.
Ilan Ramon was buried today on Day 42, for Baal, the bear, and Russia. He was buried in Nahalal outside the military base of Ramat David, which was built in 1942 to fight the Germans in the last holocaust. The number, 42, is a reminder of where it all began. Baal is the enemy of Israel, and the enemy of Marriage. NASA has partnered with Russia, which is ruled by Baal. Baal was behind the holocaust in 1942, and Baal is behind the Middle East peace process now. Baal is out to destroy Israel and usher in the millennium apart from the fulfillment of the unconditional covenants to Israel. The US and the Israeli peace crowd have been deceived by Baal. The latest example is President Bush's support for a Palestinian state, which openly defies the Abrahamic Covenant.
Baal is also the enemy of Marriage. As goes Marriage Culture so goes the nation. Just as Baal inspired Job's wife to desert him, Baal is destroying marriages everywhere. The USA today probably has the highest divorce rate of any nation in history. Ilan and his fellow astronauts were cut down at the peak of life. Columbia exploded on the new Moon, which is the time of Eclipse Testing for the man. Eclipse Testing began with the woman in the Garden.
Thus, Ilan's burial on Day 42 symbolizes the real enemy that has led to the current crisis. The enemy is the unseen enemy, the enemy of Israel and Marriage. He is Baal, who appears as the god of war and goddess of love for peace. Those who choose war apart from the Sovereign will of God, fall into Baal's trap just as Hitler did. And those who choose peace at the expense of freedom, also fall into Baal's trap just as backers of a Palestinian state have.
Ilan Ramon was born and buried in Nahalal in Zebulun. Ilan's last mission was from Florida, which corresponds to Zebulun. He died at 48, for the inheritance of the Levites. Nahalal is one of the cities in the inheritance of the Levites. It was a city for the Merarites, who were the Levite slaves responsible for moving the frames, bars, pillars, and sockets of the Tabernacle as well as the pillars of the Outer Court with the sockets, pegs, chords, and tools. Most of these things were made of bronze or silver, the products of metallurgy. Thus, the Merarites were associated with Fire Testing and the holocaust. The last holocaust will be the Battle of Armageddon, which will take place in Nahalal.
