Operation Footstool refers to the practice of bringing prisoners of war to the throne of the conquering general, who then decided whether to execute them or give them mercy. The Lord Jesus Christ will return at the Second Advent and fulfill Operation Footstool after He conquers single-handedly all of the enemies of Israel including Satan and his demons. In the graphic image on the SPC Storm graphic, the throne runs through Colorado, the region of the summits. President Bush is about to have a Summit with Ariel Sharon in Washington on July 29th. Sharon left for Washington today. Bush is pressuring Sharon to negotiate friendship with the Arab enemies of Israel whom the Lord will destroy at the Second Advent. This puts Client Nation USA in the position of one of the nations destined for the footstool. Although the Second Advent won't occur before the Rapture, this is still a dire warning in principle.
When the Orbiter Columbia exploded, it was a sign of the Second Advent. Now, this picture on the SPC Storm graphic is another graphic warning of Operation Footstool, which will be fulfilled at the Second Advent. It is a dire reminder to arrogant national leaders of what happens to the enemies of Israel. The Second Advent is a great prophetic event in the history of Israel. It is to Israel what the Rapure is to the Church. So, the sign of Operation Footstool should arouse any Jew who is waiting for a sign.
Links: | AP | CNN | CBS | BBC News |Lance Armstrong, 31, rode into history today with his fifth straight victory in the Tour de France. He was also the fifth person to win five tours, and the second to win 5 in a row. The number, 5, stands for grace or a giant, such as Baal. Armstrong won the Tour by 61 seconds over German Jan Ullrich, who has been runner-up five times. Kazakh Alexander Vinokourov was third, four minutes 14 seconds behind.
The number, 61, stands for income tax, which is associated with money. Lack of capacity for prosperity leads to the darkness of Cosmic System that is like the darkness of Baal (Matthew 6:19-24). Armstrong admitted that going into this year's race he was very confident, but that wouldn't be the case next year. He won by his narrowest margin and said that he won by surviving. He could not take credit for this year's victory. This begs the question, did he win under the power of God or Baal?
A headline in the French newspaper, Le Journal du Dimanche, declared, "Armstrong among the giants." The headline came closer to the truth than most news reports. Being among the giants does not necessarily mean that Armstrong is a giant, i.e. a son of Baal. Through the wrecks and twists and turns in this year's Tour, the battle was the Lord's. And just as David faced Goliath, Armstrong faced the giants. Taking the high ground to become a winner requires fighting the giants. The giants are characterized by the number, 5. That's why David selected five stones for the 5 giants.
During the Tour, Iraqi giants, Uday and Qusay Hussein, were killed. But after the giants, the evil king must be defeated in hand-to-hand combat with a lance, or spear. Lance Armstrong is 31, for an evil king. Saddam Hussein, the evil king, has not yet been killed. The war is not won until the evil king is killed.
Links: | Ha'aretz |The Israeli Cabinet agreed to release 540 Palestinian prisoners in conjunction with this week's trip of Ariel Sharon to Washington, DC to meet with President Bush. The release includes 210 Hamas and Jihad activists, 210 Fatah activists and 120 Palestinian criminals. The message in the numbers is: Deliverance (54), Providential Preventative Suffering (21), and authority (12), where 12 is the beginning of a sequence and 21 is the end of the sequence. In the absence of authority, prisoners become political pawns for bargaining. It appears that neither Bush, Israel, nor the Palestinians care about authority. Releasing criminals is an old Political trick practiced by those who abuse authority, such as Pontius Pilate. The three groups of prisoners represent Ecumenical, Political, and Cosmic Babylon, which means the prisoner release is identified with Satan's cosmic system.
Prisoners are violators of the internal gates of the criminal justice system. There can be no freedom in a nation when criminals roam. The Palestinian terrorists are attacking the internal gates of Israel. They are instruments of anarchy, not freedom fighters.
Links: | AP | CNN | CBS |Bob Hope died at age 100 at his home in Toluca Lake, north of Hollywood at 9:28 PM PDT (0428 GMT) of pneumonia. Hope was a legendary comedian who was known for entertaining US military troops all over the world over the years. He was born on May 29, 1903, Day 149 in Eltham, England, which is at 51° 27' N, for arrogance, and 0° 03' E. He died on July 27th, 2003. England is in the region of Asher, for royalty. The number, 3, for the Justice of the Holy Spirit was associated with his birth and death. Pneumonia is a respiratory disease, which is also associated with the number, 3, for the air. His age,100, stands for maximum divine good production.
Toluca Lake is at 34 N., for the division of the land, and 118 W., for the witness of a pillar, which represents maximum historical impact. This is associated with the Road Map for peace. California is in the same location in the USA as Israel in Asia. Bob Hope's death was associated with the cursing from the Road Map for peace. His death was also associated with Operation Footstool, since he was born in the region of Asher. And Bob Hope's death came at the lowest point of US troop morale in Iraq. Hope is the foundation or root of the Edification Complex of the Soul. The Christian soldier should never lose hope, for it is the Lord Jesus Christ who directs his life.
The image on the SPC storm graphic was a throne that stretched from Montana to New Mexico, which represents operation Footstool (Psalm 110:1; 1 Corinthians 15:23-27; Hebrews 10:12-13). This will be fulfilled at the Second Advent when the Lord Jesus Christ conquers the enemies of Israel.
The image of a weather elephant on the weather map stretched from the northeastern to the southwestern USA. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.
The victory of Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France represented the victory over the giant in Spiritual Warfare. Two giants, Uday and Qusay Hussein, were killed during the Tour. But the evil king, Saddam Hussein, is still at large. Armstrong is 31, for an evil king. Saddam Hussein is next in Spiritual Warfare. Armstrong's victory in the yellow jersey represented a capacity for life test. A capacity for life test is measured by the Spiritual Light in the human spirit, soul, and body. The darkness of the Cosmic System counterattacks the Light. An athlete must win mentally and Spiritually before he can win physically.
Ariel Sharon and his Cabinet agreed to release terrorists and criminals at the request of President Bush and Abu Mazen. What kind of leader would demand the release of terrorists and criminals? And what kind of leader would do it? The issue in Ariel Sharon's trip to the USA will be the internal gates of the criminal justice system as represented by Tennessee. It will be the same song, another verse, a little louder, and a little worse. A waterspout near Key West, Florida at 24 N., for Satan's strategic attack on Israel, coincided with Sharon's trip to Washington. Florida has been associated with the Palestinian issue.
Today was July 27th, for a horn, which represents intensified discipline. And it was Day 208, for the new birth. Lance Armstrong won another Tour de France and became one of five to win five Tours.
Lance Armstrong, 31, won the Tour de France and demonstrated victory over the giant in Spiritual Warfare. His age, 31, for the evil king, means that the evil king has not been defeated, however. Saddam's sons represented the giants, and Saddam represents the evil king. Lance finished the tour with the giants defeated but not the evil king. Lance is a visible hero, but the invisible Christian heroes are the real winners. Invisible heroes will be rewarded at the Evaluation Throne (bema, or review tribunal) of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:10). Their victories precede the blessing of visible heroes.
