Super Typhoon Haiyan Tramples Philippines

Typhoon Haiyan

Super Typhoon Haiyan Tramples Philippines

November 8 (Day 312, Authority):  Super Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines as one of the most powerful tropical cyclones in world history.  It made landfall near Guiuan on the island of Samar at 0430 AM (2030 GMT) on November 8, 2013.  The typhoon made landfall as a Category 5 hurricane with winds estimated to be 190 mph.  No hurricane hunter aircraft flew into the storm to get accurate measurements.  According to the wind estimates, it was the fourth most powerful typhoon at landfall in history.

The intensity of the typhoon decreased some as it traversed the islands of the Philippines from East to West.  However, there was massive devastation as the typhoon destroyed homes and businesses, and the storm surge washed away cars and killed people.  Tacloban, a city of 220,000 which was directly in the path of the storm, was flattened.

Typhoon Haiyan Landfall

Typhoon Haiyan Landfall Chart, 11-8-13The Chart for landfall of Typhoon Haiyan contained a Horse's Hoof.  A Horse's Hoof symbolizes being trampled by horses.  This is a good analogy for the devastation caused by the powerful Typhoon Haiyan.  The infrared satellite image of the typhoon resembled a horse.

There were three planets each in Libra and Sagittarius.  This adds power to these signs in the Chart.  Libra had reached the Ascendant.  The Sun was in conjunction with the God of the Covenants in Libra.  The Sun symbolized Sovereign power and the God of the Covenants symbolized the law.  The Savior Planet in Libra symbolized being delivered.  The planets in Sagittarius were:

  1. Moon an army
  2. Last Adam enemy attack
  3. Morning Star battle leaders.
Sagittarius corresponds to military might and Libra to civilian power.  Landfall of a typhoon symbolizes the Second Advent and a military invasion.  Following the Second Advent, civilian power and authority will be established through the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ from the Throne of David.  The influence of Libra and Sagittarius in the Chart also corresponds to the current negotiations over Iran's nuclear program.  Iran's military nuclear ambitions correspond to Sagittarius, and the treaty for peaceful use of the nuclear energy corresponds to Libra.  Sagittarius corresponds to the location of Iran, and Libra corresponds to Russia, who has assisted Iran with its nuclear program.

The Redeemer Planet in Aquarius symbolized being redeemed from the flood.  Flooding from the typhoon was decreased due to the speed of 25 mph with which the typhoon moved across the Philippines.  Aquarius corresponds to the Philippines, where the typhoon hit.

At landfall, the Almighty God Planet was in conjunction with Midheaven in Gemini, for feasting.  Gemini corresponds to Israel.  Feasting for the Marriage of the Lamb will occur after the Second Advent in Israel.


A typhoon or hurricane symbolizes rejection of the Grace message of the Pastor by the congregation like the Right Woman who rebels against the authority of her Right Man.  Thus, the meaning of the typhoon was an extension of the meaning of the recent Solar Eclipse on November 3, 2003, which symbolized the Right Woman's rejection of her Right Man.  The devastation caused by the powerful typhoon symbolized the cursing for rejecting the Grace message of the pastor.  Instead of the double blessing of 2013, the people of the Philippines received double cursing of a recent earthquake and the powerful Typhoon Haiyan.

The two groups of three planets in Libra and Sagittarius correspond to the current negotiations over Iran's nuclear program.  Sagittarius corresponds to the military application of building a nuclear bomb, and Libra corresponds to a treaty for peaceful use of nuclear energy.
