Leaving Angelic Calling Cards

Mapleton, Iowa Devastated by Tornado

April 9, 2011 (Day 99, Challenger):  A large wedge shaped tornado devastated half of Mapleton, Iowa.  Thanks to early warnings of ten minutes, no one was killed.  The tornado hit the west side of town at 7:21 PM CDT (0021 GMT) on April 9 at Sunset, where 9 symbolizes the Plagues of Egypt.  It moved east through town for 3.5 miles and was about ¾ mile wide in places.  The maple trees for which the town was named were mangled, broken, and uprooted.  Mapleton is located at 42 N., for Baal, the bear, and Russia, and 95 W., for a hero.

One of the angelic calling cards left behind was a collection of angel figurines.  The angels belonging to Betsy Broderson were left on their shelves untouched, in spite of being in the middle of the tornado zone at 303 S. 3rd St.  The home had its roof torn off and major damage, but the angel collection was untouched.1

The Mapleton tornado was part of a swarm of tornadoes over western Iowa that were associated with a large weather elephant.  In the eastern US, tornadoes also hit Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina.  Those tornadoes were associated with the image of a duck pecking his tail.  The plot of severe weather on the SPC Storm Graphic resembled a head and tail, or ball and bat.

The astrological configuration at the time was a Grand Cross, a sign of intense suffering.  It was the third Grand Cross this year.  The first was on February 14.  The second on March 14 was associated with an explosion in a nuclear reactor in Fukushima, Japan.

Star Chart

Tornado Mapleton Chart, 4-9-11The Astrological Chart for the Mapleton tornado contains a Grand Cross, the most intense sign of suffering in a chart.  It symbolizes the suffering of the cross.  The Sun was in conjunction with the Savior and Almighty God planets on the Descendant in Pisces.  This is a strong symbol of going down.  Two more planets, the Red Planet and Mediator Planet, add even more significance to the sign of going down.  The Descendant corresponds to West, which is the direction from which the tornado hit Mapleton.  And Pisces corresponds to Kentucky and Tennessee, where the second group of tornadoes struck.

The planets in Pisces can have a good or bad meaning.  The location of Mapleton at 42 N., for Baal, corresponds to the bad meaning.  The Almighty God in Pisces symbolizes the Monster Whale, which is a symbol of Baal.  And the Mediator Planet in Pisces can symbolize Balaam, who inspired the Midianite women as Prostitutes of Babylon to lure Israel to destruction.  The Red Planet in Pisces corresponds to suffering saints (Israel) or martyrs, as those dying in Libya.  And the Savior Planet in Pisces corresponds to a savior, who is available to help.

The Ascendant, corresponding to the East, contained the God of the Covenants in Virgo, for a caretaker.  This corresponds to the work that will be required in the town to recover from the devastating tornado.

The Moon was in Gemini, corresponding to a tribe or city, such as Mapleton.  Midheaven was also in Gemini, for a famous witness.  The residents of Mapleton who survived the tornado soon became famous witnesses.  Another famous witness was in the news.  The jury was deliberating in the trial of Barry Bonds from San Francisco, California.  Gemini corresponds to California.  Barry Bonds used maple bats.

The Bottom of Heaven, IC, was in Sagittarius, for the death of a soldier.  The Last Adam was also in Sagittarius, for an enemy attack.

There were two planets in Aquarius.  The Redeemer Planet symbolized the service of a redeemer.  The residents of Mapleton were redeemed from the storm.  Not a single resident died, and there were very few injuries.  The Morning Star symbolizes a herald.  The early warning sirens alerted the residents to the approaching tornado so they could take cover.


A tornado struck Mapleton, Iowa, which is at 42 N., for Baal, and 95 W., for a hero.  Baal is the enemy of Marriage, children, and Israel.  Baal is also the god of Islam.  A tornado symbolizes the breakdown of Marriage Culture due to the uncircumcised male.  And the world is in an uproar due to fighting of followers of Islam.  The weather elephant over Mapleton at the time of the tornado was a sign of Baal, and the duck in the East corresponded to lawlessness of phallic reversionism.

The Mapleton tornado devastated the maple trees.  Knocking down trees symbolizes uprooting citizens and casting them out during the fall of a nation.  The conflict in Libya has caused thousands of refugees to flee.  Maple is also used for making baseball bats, like those used by Barry Bonds, whose trial is in progress in California.  The Moon and Midheaven were in Gemini, which corresponds to California.  The tornado was at 95 W., for a hero.  Barry Bonds is a baseball hero.

On the SPC Storm Graphic the tornadoes in Iowa were like a head, and those in Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina symbolized a tail.  This corresponds to the Head and Tail Model used by Moses to symbolize a Creditor or Debtor nation.  The day before the tornado struck, the US Congress narrowly averted a government shutdown over arguments about the national debt.  The national debt is due to the Judgment of the Prostitute of Babylon.  The two groups of tornadoes and severe weather on the SPC Storm Graphic also correspond to a bat and ball.  This corresponds to baseball and the Barry Bonds trial.

The Mapleton tornado occurred during the third Grand Cross of 2011.  The tornado devastated 60% of the town.  A Grand Cross symbolizes intensive suffering.  The tornado occurred as the Sun was setting in Pisces in conjunction with two other planets.  These planets on the Descendant along with two others in Pisces were a very strong sign of going down to destruction.  The destruction in Mapleton was associated with the uncircumcised male, Baal, and the Prostitute of Babylon.  The only solution for this is positive volition toward Bible Doctrine.

The Elect Weather Angels who handled the destruction of Mapleton left their calling card.  A collection of angels remained untouched in spite of damage all around.  The house with the angel collection was at 303 S. 3rd St., where 300 is for Judgment and 3 is for the Justice of the Holy Spirit associated with the air.
