Links: | CNN |January 4 (Day 4, Weakness): Meteor fireballs were seen by hundreds of people across Spain from the east coast of Valencia to Santiago de Compostela. From the accounts, a meteor may have exploded and sent fragments to earth. The sightings were around 6:00 PM (1700 GMT). Meteors are harbingers. Spain is in the same location in Europe as Israel in Asia. The sightings in Spain stretched from 39 N., for the sin unto death, to 42 N., for Baal, the bear, and Russia.
If the meteor sightings across Spain are extrapolated back to the Middle East, they point almost directly to Sharm el-Sheikh, where Egyptian Flash Airlines Flight FSH604 crashed into the Red Sea the day before. This is illustrated on the two pictures above. The dots are connected on a map in the top left picture, and the geographical coordinates are plotted in the top right picture. The meteor over Spain pointed to the Red Sea crash site at Sharm el-Sheikh. The charter jet that crashed in the Red Sea was filled with French tourists headed to Cairo, Egypt. The crash represented the destruction of the Egyptians in the Red Sea when they pursued Moses and the congregation of Israel in the Exodus.
The meteor over Spain on January 4th of 2004 was a reminder of the 4th day of re-Creation when that meteor was initialized in the right orbit to cross Spain. It illustrated the meaning of 2004, for the weakness of Earth in relation to the rule of Heaven. The meteor was a sign in the sky to point to the demise of those in the world who reject the Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ, who paid for the sins of the world. The meteor was shouting a message: "Remember the Red Sea!" That's where Israeli believers were delivered and the Egyptian unbelievers perished.

The engineering feat of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) team was impressive, but the pictures were of a barren landscape that was totally inhospitable. The Red Planet is as lifeless as the Moon. But God allowed all this in His permissive will. The Red Planet was set in its proper orbit on Day 4 of re-Creation to enable NASA's rendezvous and subsequent picture transmission today. This all corroborates the meaning of 2004, for the weakness of Earth in relation to the rule of Heaven.

Up to 10,000 civet cats and other creatures, like field rats, in the wildlife markets of the southern province of Guangdong will be slaughtered by the end of the week. The action came after the first case of SARS this year was confirmed in China.
Civet cats are nocturnal mammals of the Old World. Although they are not true cats, they have catlike bodies. They have a musky odor used for territorial marking. Their musk is used to make perfume. They are not related to the North American spotted skunk, which is sometimes popularly called civet.
NASA's JPL team released pictures of the Red Planet just hours before the meteor crossed Spain and pointed to the Red Sea. As scientists were celebrating the pictures from the Red Planet, the meteor was saying, "Remember the Red Sea!" The Red Sea has the same meaning as the Red Planet, which represents the blood of Christ. The Red Planet is not a place to look for life. It is a place of death, the worst death in the history of the human race. It represents the substitutionary Spiritual death of Jesus Christ on the Cross for the sins of the world.
The Red Planet represents the blood of Christ, the Lamb of God who paid for the sins of the world on the Cross. The Cross represents the ultimate weakness and suffering. At the Cross the weakness of the humanity of Jesus Christ faced the divine solution of the God of Heaven. Jesus Christ satisfied all the requirements of God on behalf of mankind so that all who partake of Him will not perish but have Eternal Life.
China ordered the slaughter of civet cats to prevent the spread of SARS. The civet cat is a nocturnal animal that has a musky odor used for territorial marking. It stinks. This correlates with the stink bug analogy of NASA's capture of comet dust. It indicates that the stink bug analogy also applies to the NASA Red Rover, which is shaped somewhat like a stink bug and has six legs like an insect.
