Links: | AP | 1 | CNN | 1 | CBS |September 28 (Day 271, Strait): Almost all of Italy was blacked out in the worst power outage in Italy since World War II. The blackout at 3:25 AM, which struck all of Italy except Sardinia, affected 58 million people. The blackout resulted from a storm-tossed tree branch that hit a Swiss transmission line. This caused another transmission line to overload and knock out French energy transmission to Italy.
Two women, ages 81 and 72, died when they fell down darkened stairways. A 92-year old woman died after her clothes caught fire from a candle. And the Vatican was in the dark. Backup generators were used to support the Pope's announcement of the installation of 31 new Cardinals as he stood in a window overlooking St. Peter's Square. Journalists wrote by candles and flashlights in the Holy See press office.
Electrical power blackouts represent the Judgment of Political Babylon. The Vatican represents Ecumenical Babylon. The number, 31, stands for an evil king. A Cardinal is the name of a Catholic priest who wears a red cap and sash and sometimes a red robe. The red on the priest symbolizes Baal-peor, the god of fire.

Today, the image of a weather elephant stretched through Florida, and a huge whirlwind was over the Great Lakes. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal. A whirlwind represents reaping what was sown under the Law of Volitional Responsibility (Hosea 8:7a).
A power blackout represents the Judgment of Political Babylon. The Vatican and Roman Catholic Church represent Ecumenical Babylon. Today was September 28th, for a cosmic stronghold of Cosmic Babylon or a storm. Satan's Cosmic System is represented by Ecumenical, Political, and Cosmic Babylon. Cardinals wear red in honor of Baal-peor, the god of fire and war. The number, 31, stands for an evil king. The pope called the Cardinals princes, which would imply that he is the king - the king of a city-state like Babel (Genesis 11:9) or Babylon the Great (Daniel 4:30; Revelation 17:5) and one of the chief contenders for the Dictator of the Revived Roman Empire, the beast from the sea (Daniel 7:7; Revelation 13:1).
A power blackout that is the largest since World War II is significant. The power of the pope is significant. The Roman Catholic Church is the most evil force in the world today. It is not only the representative of the Prostitute of Babylon but the enslaver of millions of children all over the world. The pope's miter represents Dagon, the fish god. His gold key represents the key of Babylon in honor of the god of the key or god of the hinge - e.g. Janus, or Bel the confounder. His gold cup represents Bacchus and the Prostitute of Babylon (Revelation 17:1-5). And his scepter represents the imperial ruler of the world.
It was Day 271, for a strait.
