Tourist Boat Sinks in India's Bay of Bengal

January 27 (Day 27, Horn):  A tourist boat sank in the Bay of Bengal off Ross Island near North Bay yesterday at 3:45 PM IST (1015 GMT).  Of the 50 people onboard, 21 were confirmed dead and one was missing and presumed dead.  Twenty-eight were rescued.  The Aqua Marine left Port Blair on a sight-seeing tour of three islands.  After leaving the jetty at Ross Island a plank broke off below the waterline, and the boat sank rapidly.  The three crew members of the boat were arrested.

In keeping with the meaning of the year, 2014, for the passover, the boat sank after it left Ross Island as it was passing over to the next island.  It sank on January 26, where 26 symbolizes Political Babylon.  The Chart of the heavens at the time was a miraculous symbol of the Marriage Feast of the Lamb at the Second Advent (Matt 26:29; Lk 22:15-16, 18, 20; Rev 19:9).

Boat Sinking Chart

Boat Sinking ChartThe Chart at the time the Aqua Marine sank contained a Grand Cross and a Bucket like the New Year's Chart.  The Grand Cross symbolizes intensive suffering.  The Bucket was oriented on the East-West axis with the focus on the Ascendant.  The Almighty God Planet in Gemini on the Ascendant symbolized he Marriage Feast of the Lamb at the Second Advent.  Gemini symbolizes Israel.  The Almighty God was the only planet on the Spiritual side of the Chart.  All of the other planets were on the temporal side.  They symbolized the enemies of Israel who would be destroyed at the Second Advent as well as those Gentiles who would serve the Lord in the Millennium (Isa 60:1-22).

There were two planets on the Descendant in Sagittarius.

  1. Morning Star commanders with their armies, who will be defeated at the Second Advent.
  2. Last Adam enemy attack from the nations that will be destroyed at the Second Advent.
There were two planets in Capricornus, which corresponds to India.
  1. Sun Gentile glory (or glory of the Gentiles)
  2. Savior Rescuer, who rescued those from the sinking boat.  This also symbolizes the Lord as the Rescuer of Israel at the Second Advent.
The Moon was in Scorpius, for the Prostitute of Babylon, who sits on many waters (Rev 17:1), corresponding to those who fell into the bay when the boat sank.

The Redeemer Planet in Aquarius symbolized being redeemed from the flood (the sea).

Midheaven was in conjunction with the Mediator Planet in Pisces, for a notorious pastor or priest.  And the Bottom of Heaven was in Virgo, for going down to Sheol.  Also in Virgo was the Red Planet, for a bloody son, corresponding to suffering of the children in the tragedy.

The God of the Covenants was in Libra for the Law, corresponding to problems with international law.  Libra corresponds to Russia and the Russian republics to the North.  Russia is facing terrorism associated with the Winter Olympics in Sochi.  The Olympics are outside national law which is sanctioned by the Bible.  They fall under the lawless power of Satan.

Conclusion

A boat symbolizes Salvation (1 Pet 3:20, 21), and a sinking boat symbolizes perishing.  When the Aqua Marine sank, some perished, and others were rescued (saved).  People are saved by faith in Jesus Christ. Those who do not believe in Jesus Christ will perish forever.  At the Second Advent, the Lord will rescue Israel and destroy the enemies of Israel.

The Chart at the time of the boat sinking symbolizes the Marriage Feast of the Lamb at the Second Advent.  The Almighty God in Gemini on the Ascendant symbolizes the Marriage Feast.  The Almighty God is on the Spiritual side of the Chart, and all other planets are on the Temporal side.  Gemini corresponds to Israel.  Israel on the Spiritual side of the Chart symbolizes the Priest Nation (Client Nation) in the Millennium.  The other planets on the temporal side of the Chart symbolize the Gentile believers, who will serve Israel in the Millennium, and the unbelievers, who will perish at the Second Advent (Isa 60:12).
