Stone Cut Out Without Hands Strikes Shuttle

Stone Cut Out Without Hands Strikes Shuttle

June 1, (Day 152, Wall):  Yesterday morning (May 31, 2011) a cluster of thunderstorms that emerged in the Atlantic off North Carolina turned clockwise toward Florida.  The ball of thunderstorms, steered by a high pressure system over Kentucky, intensified over the Gulf Stream.  This morning, the National Hurricane Center designated the ball of thunderstorms Invest 93L, with potential for becoming the first tropical depression of the 2011 Hurricane Season.  Invest 93L began rotating counterclockwise with tropical characteristics as it headed directly for Kennedy Space Center (KSC).  It was shaped like a ball, or a "stone cut out without hands," corresponding to the one designated to topple Daniel's statue of the empires of the world (Dan. 2:34, 45).
Tropical Disturbance Landfall, 6-1-11, 10:19 AM EDT
About 10:19 AM EDT (1419 GMT) the large eye of the tropical disturbance made landfall at the KSC Launch Pad where Space Shuttle Atlantis had arrived seven hours earlier.  At that time the Almighty God Planet was in conjunction with Midheaven in Aries to symbolize the Lord of the Armies at the Second Advent when the Lord Jesus Christ will return to topple Daniel's image.

The Stone Cut Out Without Hands

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream of a giant statue that was toppled by a stone that hit its feet of clay.  Daniel interpreted the dream.  The statue symbolized all the world empires of the Cosmic System (Babylon) in history.
Daniel 2:32-34
32 "The head of that statue was made of fine gold (Chaldean Empire), its breast and its arms of silver (Medes and Persians), its belly (Graeco-Macedonian Empire of Alexander the Great) and its thighs of bronze (Hellenistic monarchies), 33 its legs of iron (Roman Empire), its feet partly of iron (Revived Roman Empire of Tribulation) and partly of clay (undermined nations). 34 "You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces (Armageddon).
The 'stone cut out without hands" was a stone in its natural state that had not been reshaped by human hands.  The feet of the statue, which were made of iron and pottery, symbolized the Revived Roman Empire, ruled by the Antichrist in the Tribulation.  The stone symbolized the Lord Jesus Christ who will return at the Second Advent and destroy the last world empires.
"Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were crushed all at the same time, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors (Baptism of Fire); and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them was found (not allowed in Millennial Kingdom).  But the stone (Jesus Christ) that struck the statue became a great mountain (reign of Christ in Millennium) and filled the whole Earth. (Daniel 2:35)
After the Lord destroys the enemies of Israel at the Second Advent, the unbelievers will be cast off the Earth into the fire of Hades and the Earth will be purged with fire (the Baptism of Fire) to prepare for the Millennium with perfect environment.

Conclusion

The tropical disturbance formed off North Carolina on May 31, 2011, Day 151, where 31 is for an Evil King and Day 151 is for arrogance.  North Carolina is in the region of Judah, corresponding to the home tribe of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Thus, the tropical disturbance off North Carolina symbolized the Lord Jesus Christ as the stone cut out without hands.  The tropical disturbance went straight to Kennedy Space Center were Orbiter Endeavour had just returned from space and Space Shuttle Atlantis had just been secured at 3:29 AM EDT on the Launch Pad.

The Space Shuttle erected on the Launch Pad corresponded to the statue of Daniel.  The tropical disturbance striking the Space Shuttle corresponded to the stone cut out without hands striking the feet of clay of the statue of Daniel.  The stone striking the statue and toppling it corresponds to the end of the empires of the world (Babylon) at the Second Advent.

The return of STS-134 at 2:34/51 AM EDT was a reminder of the division of the land, corresponding to the Tower of Babel, which the Lord toppled when He divided the land.  The number, 34, stands for the division of the land.  Thus, the Space Shuttle on the Launch Pad and the International Space Station correspond to the Tower of Babel.  Just as the Lord scattered the nations at the Tower of Babel, He will destroy the nations that oppose Israel at the Second Advent.

The Space Shuttle Atlantis (STS-135) will be NASA's last Shuttle mission.  Thus, the end of the Shuttle missions corresponds to the end of world empires.  The number, STS-135, symbolizes rest from enemies and corresponds to the Millennium, which follows the Second Advent.
