Las Vegas Mandalay Hotel Mass Shooting

October 1 (Day 274, Spiritual Freedom):  A gunman opened fire with automatic weapons from the Mandalay Hotel on a concert crowd of 22,000 on the night of October 1, 2017.  Initial casualty counts of 58 killed and 530 injured made it the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in US history.  Stephen Paddock knocked out two windows in his corner two-bedroom suite and used assault rifles to fire upon the Route 91 Harvest country music festival across Las Vegas Boulevard about 400 yards away.  The number 91 is for a coup de grace.

Paddock began shooting at 10:05 PM PDT (0505 GMT) from the 32nd floor of the hotel.  He fired wave after wave into the crowd in the open square as they frantically tried to duck and run.  The shooting stopped at 10:15 PM.   Paddock had installed security cameras outside the room and barricaded the hallway doors.  The first responding officers reached the 32nd floor at 10:17 PM and found a security officer who had been shot when he tried to enter Paddock's room.  When the door of Paddock's room was finally breached at 11:20 PM, Paddock had already killed himself.

Meaning

Stephen Paddock's problem was not psychological.  It was spiritual.  Paddock was full of Satan as the "man of lawlessness" (2 Thess 2:3, 8; Rev 13:5-8) and "son of destruction" (Rev 9:11).  Satan put it in Paddock's heart to shoot the concert crowd with automatic weapons.  Satan is a murderer (Jn 8:44), the destroyer and "son of destruction."

Nevada is the region of the outcast, for those in the nation who have fallen under the Four Generation Curse and been sentenced to death (Matt 5:13).  The recent hurricanes symbolized rejection of Grace by the congregation, and the shooting in Las Vegas symbolized the resulting death and destruction.

The shooting was from the 32nd floor, Room 135, where 32 is for a conspiracy and 135 is for rest from enemies.  Many conspiracy theories began popping up soon after the shooting.  The shooting was on October 1, 2017, Day 274, where the numbers mean:  Tenth month, laws of establishment; 1, unity; 2017, lawlessness, and 274, spiritual freedom.

Florida Floods

The day of the Las Vegas shooting there were floods in Brevard County, Florida.  The torrential rain was bizarre.  It rained all day in some areas and into the night.  The trunk of a weather elephant over Central Florida with strong winds brought in moisture, and a weather angel brought rivers of water in from the Atlantic.  The rain was only along the coast and didn't move very far inland.  Rainfall of 5 to 10 inches was reported in the county.

The rain slacked off by midnight.  The shooting began in Las Vegas at 1:05 AM EDT (10:05 PM PDT, Oct. 1 in Nevada).

Paddock's Motive Baffles Investigators

Stephen Paddock's motive baffled investigators since he had no criminal history.  The shooting however was obviously meticulously planned.  He had 22 rifles and a pistol in the room and owned about 42 guns.  He was not known to be associated with any radical group or any other group according to his brother.  He was a professional gambler and real estate investor.  He lived in Mesquite, Nevada and was a former resident of Brevard County, Florida.  He lived in Viera, Florida from 2013 to 2015 when he moved to Nevada.

Paddock's Father a Famous Bank Robber

Stephen Paddock's father, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, was a convicted bank robber who was once on the FBI's Most Wanted list.  He was a smooth talking con man.  He served time in prison in Illinois for stealing cars and fraud.  He tried to run down an FBI agent with his car when he was arrested for bank robbery in 1960.  He was arrested for several bank robberies in Phoenix and sent to prison where he was diagnosed as being suicidal and psychopathic.  He escaped federal prison eight years later and was placed on the FBI's "Most Wanted" list.  He fled to Oregon where he assumed an alias and ran a bingo parlor until he was arrested again in 1978.   He was indicted for racketeering in Oregon in 1987 but got off with no jail time and $100,000 fine.  He died in 1998.

Shooting Chart

Mandalay Shooting 10-1-17 ChartThe Chart at the time of the Las Vegas shooting contains a Wagon, a Plow, and a Locomotive.  The Wagon symbolizes an ambulance for carrying away the injured.  The Plow through the Wagon signifies intense suffering, like being plowed under.  The Plow also corresponds to the corner hotel suite from which Paddock was shooting.  The Plow pointed to the God of the Covenants in Scorpius, for final judgment.

A Locomotive is for a strategic plan.  The Locomotive turned on the conjunction of the Morning Star and Red Planet in Leo.

  1. Morning Star sovereign
  2. Red Planet tyrant.
The Bottom of Heaven was also in Leo, for a footstool, corresponding to the shooter on the 32nd floor of the hotel overlooking the victims beneath.  Leo corresponds to Washington, DC.

The Moon was on the cusp of Capricornus and Aquarius in conjunction with Midheaven in Aquarius, for a notorious Gentile audience, corresponding to the concert audience.  Aquarius corresponds to Florida where the floods occurred.  The Redeemer Planet was also in Aquarius, for being redeemed from Sheol.

The Sun and Savior Planet were in conjunction in Virgo.

  1. Sun bridegroom
  2. Savior Planet Rachel's children, corresponding to the suffering of those attending the concert.
The Almighty God Planet was in Libra, for a judge with an iron rod, corresponding to the guns Paddock fired.

The Ascendant was in Taurus, for the prosperity of the Las Vegas resort area.

Stephen Paddock Birth Chart

Stephen Paddock Birth ChartThe Birth Chart of Stephen Paddock contains a Wagon, two Plows, and a Yod.  A Wagon symbolizes the woman in marriage.  The two Plows through the Wagon symbolized Paddock's two divorces.  The Plows, for intensive suffering, also symbolized the double cursing of Paddock's life.  He was worse than his father under the Four Generation Curse.  The Plows pointed to:
  1. Mediator in Gemini a mediator of marriage disputes, corresponding to divorce.   Gemini corresponds to California, where Paddock lived for a while.
  2. Almighty God in Aries Lord of the Armies at the Second Advent or a commander leading an attack.  The Red Planet and Morning Star were also in Aries.
  3. Red Planet Satan, father of murderers (Jn 8:44).  Paddock's father had the same sign in his Birth Chart.
  4. Morning Star military leaders.
There were three pairs of planets, for a flood, corresponding to the Prostitute of Babylon in Paddock's life and to the flood of victims trying to escape his shooting.

A Yod is for critical timing, like being able to strike at the right time or hit a moving target.  He did that in the Las Vegas shooting.

The Moon in Paddock's Birth Chart is in the same location on the cusp of Capricornus and Aquarius as at the time of the shooting.  The Moon symbolizes a Gentile audience in Paddock's life, corresponding to Paddock as the man of lawlessness in relation to people in Gentile lawlessness.

The Sun was in Pisces, for Heavenly glory.  This was usurped by Satan so that Paddock glorified Satan rather than God.

The Savior Planet was in Aquarius, for being saved from the flood.  However, Paddock was apparently never saved.  According to his brother, he was an unbeliever.

The Almighty God Planet was on the cusp of Libra and Virgo, for a pilot.  Paddock had an airplane pilot's license.  In conjunction with the Almighty God Planet was the Redeemer Planet in Virgo, for a redeemer son, corresponding to the riches that Paddock lavished upon his mother, brother, and friends.

The Last Adam was in Cancer, for scourging, corresponding to the suffering in Paddock's life at the hand of Satan suffering upon others and upon himself with his suicide.

Benjamin Paddock Birth Chart

Benjamin Birth ChartThe Birth Chart of Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, Jr., Stephen's father, contains a Kite, Grand Cross, Mystic Rectangle, and Catwalk.  The Kite is for Benjamin's ability as a smooth talking con artist and career criminal.  The Grand Cross is for the great suffering brought on by being arrested and going to prison.  The Mystic Rectangle is for the ability to balance opposition with law enforcement and others, e.g. victims.  It is also like a car and symbolizes travels.  The Catwalk is for Benjamin's life as a fugitive.

The Sun was in Libra, for Sovereign power, which Benjamin usurped.  The Moon was in Virgo, for civil servants, such as those in the prisons.

Two planets were in Scorpius.

  1. God of the Covenants final judgment
  2. Savior Planet Satan's attack on the son, corresponding to the Four Generation Curse on Benjamin's firstborn son Stephen
The Mediator Planet was in Pisces, for Balaam, who loved money.

The Red Planet was in Aries, for the devil as the father of murderers.  The same sign was in Stephen's Birth Chart.

The Last Adam was in Gemini, for being put on trial.

Conclusion

The floods in Florida in Brevard County were the herald of the shooting in Las Vegas.  The floods symbolized the Prostitute of Babylon sitting on many waters (Rev 17:1, 15).  The Prostitute of Babylon is one side of Satan, and the man of lawlessness (Antichrist) is the other.  Stephen Paddock previously lived in Florida in Brevard County.  He rejected the Gospel and chose Gentile lawlessness, corresponding to the Moon on the cusp of Capricornus and Aquarius in both the shooting Chart and Paddock's Birth Chart.

Stephen Paddock fell under the Four Generation Curse.  His father was a bank robber who sent time in prison and on the run.  God delivered the sins of his father upon Stephen.  Under the Four Generation Curse Stephen turned out worse than his father who was also cursed under Satan.  The father's chart contained the Savior Planet in Scorpius, for Satan's attack upon the son.  Both the father's and the son's Birth Charts contained the Red Planet in Aries, for Satan, the father of murderers.

The Shooting Chart had the God of the Covenants in Scorpius, for final judgment.  Nevada is in the region for an outcast (Matt 5:13).  Final judgment corresponds to falling under the Four Generation Curse and dying the Sin Leading to Death.  The mass shooting in Nevada was the work of Satan as the man of lawlessness in the year 2017, which stands for lawlessness.
