Showdown

Links:  | AP | CBS | CNN Transcript |
March 17 (Day 76, Skill):  President Bush delivered his long awaited war ultimatum to Saddam Hussein.  He gave Saddam and his sons 48 hours to get out of town or face the wrath of hell.  He cited his authority for starting a war with Iraq as the sovereign right of a nation to defend itself along with two UN resolutions 678 and 687.  Bush said.  "The United States of America has the sovereign authority to use force in assuring its own national security."  In other words, it has the right of self-defense.  However, Saddam Hussein has done nothing to provoke an attack.

The weather angels portrayed the scene as a showdown between an old man and a rabbit.  The rabbit represents Baal as the goddess of love.  The rabbit appeared to have an empty womb.  The angelic art portrays the female usurpation of her husband's authority, which began in the Garden of Eden.  The woman joined the devil, and the man lacked the integrity to withstand the counterattack of the the woman.  Similarly, Bush let Saddam Hussein get to him.  Bush claimed self-defense before Saddam threw a punch.  Other world leaders saw through this, but Bush never saw it; and he surrounded himself with yes-people, who dared not stand up to the President's irrationality.

Dow Up 282

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose up 282.21, or 3.6 percent, to close at 8,141.92.  The numbers mean:

Weather

No tornadoes were reported in the USA.  There were at least 12 hail and 6 wind damage reports in North Carolina, Texas, and Florida.

The scene on the weather map portrayed a standoff between an old man and a rabbit.  A rabbit  represents Baal as the goddess of love, which corresponds to a demon Commander.

Conclusion

President Bush played his cards.  Like a bad western, he called for Saddam and his sons to get out of town within 48 hours or face death.  Bush invoked two UN resolutions, which have no authority, and the sovereign right of self defense.  However, Saddam has not provoked an attack.  Bush's logic is irrational but very real.  Wars are seldom justified, and US Presidents are seldom great.  There is no need to try to understand Bush, but, in the end, he lacked the integrity to withstand the imagined threat posed by Saddam Hussein.

For the next 48 hours, there will be a showdown between Bush and Saddam Hussein.  And God, in His Sovereignty will decide who to defend.

The Dow rose 282, for a breakpoint in history.

Today was March 17th, for lawlessness.  There were no legitimate laws cited for invading Iraq.  Congress has not declared war, and the UN has no authority.  President Bush has the power to order an army into combat.  Whether he has the authority remains to be seen.  And it was Day 76, for skill.

Bible Doctrine

This is Bible Doctrine.  The Spiritual War precedes the temporal.  Those Christians who have an Integrity Envelope can now decide which side to take - not Bush's or Saddam Hussein's, but God's or Satan's.
Because our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against demon Commanders, against demon Managers, against demon world Powers of this darkness, against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenlies. (Ephesians 6:12)
