Houston Flash Flood

Antelope, 4-28-13, UW

Houston Flash Flood

April 28 (Day 118, Pillar):  Houston was flooded due to severe weather with rain of 7 to 8 inches and hail.  Cars were stalled out on Highway 288 at the 610 Loop.  The roof of a Foodmart in Sugarland collapsed due to hail.  And Kindred Hospital on the East Freeway was evacuated after power was knocked out and the backup generator failed.  Traffic lights were out in Pasadena due to loss of power.  Yesterday over 150 water rescues were performed by the Fire Department.

The heavy rain was due to a stalled cold front.  Overhead on the satellite map was the image of an antelope with its tail over Houston and its head over the Great Lakes.  An antelope, like a gazelle, represents a fleet footed, sexy creature.  Antelopes, which are good to eat, were trapped in nets in the ancient world.  Antelopes caught in nets symbolized the double punishment of Jerusalem before its fall in 586 BC (Isa 51:20).  It suffered both famine and the sword.  The double cursing corresponds to the two horns of the antelope.  The Houston flood began on April 27, where 27 symbolizes a horn, which gores.  There was double cursing from rain and hail.

The Moon was in Scorpius, for Jezebel, corresponding to the Prostitute of Babylon.  The floods of water in the streets symbolized the Prostitute of Babylon and Judgment for female promiscuity (Prov 5:16).  The Redeemer Planet was in Aquarius for being redeemed from the flood, corresponding to the high water rescues in Houston.


The Houston flood occurred suddenly on April 27, 2013, Day 117, where 27 is for a horn and 117 is for the witness (11) of lawlessness (17) or categorical punishment (7).  The flood symbolizes the Judgment of the Prostitute of Babylon, who attacks Marriage and the Right Man Right Woman relationship.  The heavy rain and hail symbolized double cursing, like the horns of an antelope.  The image of an antelope overhead in the satellite photo symbolized the swift, sexy creature that was caught in nets.  The capture of antelopes in nets symbolized the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC in which there was double cursing (intensified discipline) from famine and the sword (Isa 51:20).

Recent examples of double cursing in the US include the two bombs in the Boston Marathon set off by two brothers.  And the Boston Marathon bombing followed by the explosion of the fertilizer plant in West, Texas.
