Jay Garner visited Baghdad to begin post-war reconstruction and humanitarian relief. The Dow fell 8.75, where 8 is for the new birth, and 75 is for Sovereignty. Reconstruction of Iraq is a new birth, but there will be no new authoirty apart from the Sovereignty of God (75). Garner cannot provide divine Sovereignty.
Subtropical Storm Ana was named as the first storm of the 2003 hurricane season. Disturbances in the atmosphere are to be expected since 2003 represents the Justice of the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is symbolized by the wind. SARS, which is transmitted through the air and is a respiratory problem, is also part of the suffering associated with 2003.
The last 7 whales that beached in the Florida Keys in the Content Keys on April 18th are dying. They are at 24 N., for Satan's strategic attack on Israel, and 81 W. Florida has also been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza. The Florida whale crisis has paralleled the crisis of Palestinian Prime Minister designate, Abu Mazen, in his attempt to form a cabinet. A whale represents a demon Commander, such as Baal. The whales in Florida correspond to Typhoon Kujira, Cetus, the whale. Cetus is the constellation that represents Satan being bound and incarcerated at the Second Advent.
The image of a sickle was along the eastern seaboard. A sickle represents judgment symbolized by reaping. The image of a bear was in the Atlantic. A bear is the symbol of Baal and Russia.
Today was April 21st, for Providential Preventative Suffering. And it was Day 111, for the witness of truth, or Bible Doctrine.
