Terrorists Attack US Consulate in Benghazi

Terrorists Attack US Consulate in Benghazi

September 11, 2012 (Day 255, Grace Blessing in Suffering):  Terrorists attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.  They burned it and killed the US Ambassador to Libya along with three other US personnel.  During a protest of a film made in California about the Muslim prophet Muhammed, the terrorists began the attack with automatic weapons, rocket-propelled grenades, and mortars.  Libyan security forces guarding the Consulate were quickly overwhelmed.  The terrorists gained entry into the Consulate and set it on fire.

US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and two others went to a safe room, but were forced to leave due to smoke.  Stevens and Information Management Officer, Sean Smith, did not survive.   Stevens was taken to a hospital, where doctors said he died of smoke inhalation.

Eight US Marines dispatched from Tripoli came under heavy attack as they tried to rescue 37 personnel who had evacuated to a safe house.  One of the Marines was killed and two wounded, and another American was killed.

The attack began shortly before 10 PM Libyan time on the eleventh anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attack on the US World Trade Center Twin Towers.  Earlier there was protest at the US Embassy in Cairo in which the American flag was torn down and burned.  The protest had been incited over the US film about Muhammed.


Although there were terrorists involved in the Benghazi attack, Satan was behind it all just as he was behind the September 11, 2001 attack.  After Egypt and Libya were freed, he was bound to counterattack.  The counterattack was designed to arouse Islamic Arabs against the US..

Star Chart

Benghazi Attack Chart, 9-11-12The Chart at the time of the Benghazi attack about 10 PM, contains an overturned Carafe and a Yod.  A Carafe is a container filled with a liquid for drinking.  The liquid symbolizes blessing or cursing.  The Carafe was intersected at right angles by a Yod.

A Yod symbolizes a crisis in timing that resolves the conflict between two planets at the base of the triangle into a third planet at the apex at a critical time.  The God of the Covenants in Taurus and Mediator Planet in Pisces were on the base.  The God of the Covenants in Taurus symbolizes Satan as the ruler of the world.  This planet was also rising near the Ascendant.  The Mediator in Pisces symbolizes a prophet or pastor.  The Islamic contention was over an insult to Muhammed over a film.  The Yod pointed to the Red Planet in Libra, for bloody judgment or mass murder.  Thus, the Yod symbolized the attack on the US Consulate on the anniversary of September 11, 2001.

The Red Planet and God of the Covenants were in Libra.  Libra corresponds to Libya.  Libra is opposite Aries, which corresponds to Egypt and New York.  Thus, Egypt and Libya, where the riots occurred, are opposite each other on the Chart.

The Carafe was overturned and symbolically cut by the Yod.  The overturned Carafe symbolizes cursing that has poured out.  At the base of the Carafe were the Last Adam in Sagittarius, for a Satanic attack, and the Redeemer in Aquarius, for an embassy.  Thus, this symbolized Satan's attack on the US Consulate.  At the top of the Carafe were the Moon and Morning Star in Cancer.  The Moon in Cancer symbolizes security of a group, corresponding to personnel in the US Consulate in Benghazi.  Cancer corresponds to a safe house, where US personnel sought refuge.  And the Morning Star in Cancer symbolizes a taker of spoils, corresponding to the terrorist attack on the US Consulate.

The God of the Covenants in Libra symbolizes Law, such as Islamic Law, which is based on the Koran and rejects freedom of speech and religion as well as many other freedoms.

The Sun was in conjunction with the Savior Planet in Leo.  The Sun in Leo symbolizes the King of glory, corresponding to government glory.  The Savior Planet in Leo symbolizes a royal son, corresponding to an ambassador.  Leo corresponds to Washington, DC.

The pairs of planets in the Chart symbolize a flood, which is Judgment for female promiscuity.


The pair of Islamic protests at the US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt and the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya were on the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001. The pair symbolizes a witness and corresponds to the Twin Towers.  The number, 11, is also for a witness.  Witnesses are associated with court, evangelism, and Marriage Culture, where the husband and wife are a corporate witness.

The Islamic protests and attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi were the work of Satan.  He inspired the film, incited the riots, and killed the US Ambassador and personnel.   He will also lead the investigation.  Satan rules the world, as revealed by the Almighty God rising on the Ascendant in Taurus at the time of the Benghazi attack.  Satan also led the September 11, 2001 attack.  This does not exonerate the terrorists who carried out the attacks and must be brought to justice.  However, this is spiritual warfare, and Satan is undoubtedly inciting Egypt and Libya against the US.
