As Tropical Storm Isaac reached the Mississippi Delta on August 28, it was upgraded to a Hurricane at 1 PM CDT, although none of the buoys near sea level ever showed any hurricane force wind. Isaac had been so capricious that the normally bold forecasters in the National Hurricane Center shied away from upgrading the storm to a hurricane. However, when it strengthened upon reaching the Delta, they conjured up their usual mix of presumptions and upgraded it.
According to the Hurricane Center, Isaac made landfall on the Delta at 6:45 PM CDT (2345 GMT). However, it drifted back into the sea and tried to form two concentric eye walls before making landfall a second time after midnight between Grand Isle and Port Fourchon. Then it stalled on the coast and did not begin creeping over Houma until about 9:30 AM CDT on August 29. All this time the east side of the storm was pouring rain on top of a storm surge from New Orleans to Pensacola. In addition, the wind gusts were enough to knock out electrical power to most of the residents in Louisiana in the vicinity of the storm.
The second landfall was on August 29, 2012, Day 242, where the numbers mean: 29 – victory over Edom; 12 – authority; and 242 – Baal or Jezebel, the Prostitute of Babylon.
So, when tropical storms arise, the congregation has rejected Grace and listened to the lies of Satan, and the pastor is left alone with God to be tested.
