Links: | Chicago Sun-Times | AP | CBS (video) |February 17 (Day 48, Inheritance of the Levites): A panic-stricken stampede at a Chicago nightclub killed 21 and injured 55. The panic started when someone sprayed mace or pepper spray to break up a fight between two girls. The 2nd floor of the club was filled with about 500 people, who panicked and headed for the single door and stairwell. Rather than stand their ground, they ran like cowards to save their own skin and trampled innocent people in the process. The Epitome nightclub is at 2347 S. Michigan, which stands for a Spiritual uptrend (23) and peace (47). Chicago is in the region of Naphtali, the doe and symbol of peace.
Links: | Crane Sounds | USGS |Two sandhill cranes showed up in the Titusville neighborhood. They are common to central Florida. Some migrate from Canada and others live here. The crane is a migratory bird like the stork. In the Bible, crane is the Hebrew, `agur.
Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed times; and turtle-dove, swallow, and crane, keep the time of their coming (migration); but my people do not know the judgment of the LORD. (Jeremiah 8:7)Jeremiah described the ignorance of Israel before the Fifth Cycle of Discipline by using the analogy of the stork and crane, which migrate. Even the stork and crane know when to migrate, but the people of Judah were ignorant of the approaching judgment of the Lord, who was about to destroy them. They were afraid of Nebuchadnezzar. They should have been afraid of the Lord.
Isaiah 38:13-14Hezekiah, who had been a student of Bible Doctrine and who had great prosperity, neglected doctrine and became a coward. He was frightened to death of Sennacherib, king of Assyria. His fear led him to negotiate peace with Sennacherib, who was one of the world's worst terrorists. Hezekiah was afraid to stand and fight.
13 “I waited patiently till the morning; like the lion,
So He broke in pieces all my bones:
From day to night You make it all over with me.
14 Like a swallow, a crane, so I chirped;
I cooed like the dove;
My eyes pined for the height.
O Lord, men assault me! Be bail for me.”
The image of a large weather elephant was off the east coast of the USA with trunk through southern Florida. And a weather elephant over California was in sequence with another off the west coast. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.
The nightclub is at 2347 S. Michigan, which stands for a Spiritual uptrend (23) and peace (47). Chicago is in the region of Naphtali, the doe and symbol of peace. Thus, the tragedy was tied to the Middle East peace process, which is part of US foreign policy.
Hezekiah, King of Judah, was a coward after he neglected Bible Doctrine. When he began to die, however, he prayed like a holy roller. He sounded like a sandhill crane. He was afraid of Sennacherib, King of Assyria, and tried to negotiate peace with a terrorist. Terrorists should be killed, not brought in for peace talks. Leaders who lack backbone are just like Hezekiah. They don't kill terrorists. They go to the United Nations and talk peace.
The same was true of the king in Jeremiah's day before the fall of Judah in the Fifth Cycle of Discipline. The king was negotiating peace treaties. He had a coalition with Egypt for protection against Babylon. And the believers of the day were like Hezekiah. They lived in fear because they rejected the Lord's help through Bible Doctrine. Israel has done the same, and so has the USA. Terrorism brings out the fear in cowards. Israel killed a leading Hamas terrorist today. That was good. Did you hear any words of praise from the White House? No.
Two sandhill cranes were brought on a tour of a Florida neighborhood this afternoon by the angels. The sandhill cranes did not represent the exodus from an Iraq war. They represented people who know less than migratory birds and the likes of Hezekiah, who tried to negotiate peace treaties with terrorists. Hezekiah, without Bible Doctrine, became a coward. But when he was dying, he began to pray like a holy roller. The only difference between the holy rollers and the people who died in the Chicago honky tonk is that the holy rollers are going to Heaven after they die the sin unto death.
Today was February 17th, for lawlessness, which is synonymous with the peace crowd and party crowd. And it was Day 48, for the inheritance of the Levites, which is an icon of the Promised Land. Today was a reminder that the Lord remembers the Abrahamic Covenant even when Jews and Christians without doctrine forget it.
