Dying in the Wilderness on the
Anniversary of the War Between the States
April 12, 2022 (Day 102): A tornado devastated the town of
Salado, Texas. Houses and building were reduced to rubble
by a strong EF-3 tornado with 165 mph winds. The
tornado entered Bell County from Williamson County and traveled
north-northeast up FM 2843 into Salado along Salado Creek.
Two Baptist churches were completely destroyed, Victory Baptist
Church and First Cedar Valley Baptist Church, both on FM
2843. Houses in the area were also leveled.
Twenty-three people were injured, but none were killed.
The tornado was
one of 19 reported in the US from Minnesota to Texas.
There were blizzards in the North.
The history of Salado provides interesting clues of the meaning
behind the destruction near the small town and two Baptist
churches. Salado was first incorporated in 1867 for the
sole purpose of building a bridge across the Salado Creek.
However, since it came to be listed only as a census-designated
place, in 2000 the local citizens voted for
reincorporation. In 2020 the population was 2,126.
The year 2000 was significant because the number 2000 stands for
crossing the Jordan, which was the boundary of the Promised
Land. The Promised Land was conquered from East to
West. After the conquest the cities of the Levites
were to be on plots 2,000 cubits wide. Thus, the city
plots (the inheritance of the Levites) were icons of the
Promised Land. See Meaning of the Year 2000. So, the
Salado tornado was related to the Promised Land. Client
Nation USA symbolizes the Promised Land, which can only be
conquered by Christians.
The name Salado means salty in Spanish. It is often used
for the names of rivers and streams. The name has many
connotations. Salty can imply testy, feisty, bitter.
Salt has a good connotation when applied to the land, where it
can be a preservative or a fertilizer (Matt 5:13).
However, as applied to water, it can have a bad
connotation of bitter. It is used to describe sins
of the tongue (Jas 3:10-12).
The town of Salado got its name from the creek that runs through
it. The town was founded to build a bridge over the little
creek. A bridge is the symbol of a man, and a creek is the
symbol of a female in Marriage Culture.
The tornado devastated the
town of Salado, Texas on April 12, 2022, which is the
anniversary of the beginning of the War Between the
States. The town was named for the Salado Creek, and the
town was founded to build a bridge over the creek. This
symbolizes Marriage Culture, where the bridge symbolizes the
male and the creek the female. The tornado
symbolizes the cursing of the land from the uncircumcised
male. The Creek named Salado corresponds to bitter water,
which is unfit to drink and to a bitter, reacting female in
marriage, who can be testy, malicious, or bitter, like a
dripping faucet. She reacts to the man with sins of the
tongue. She does not respect God or her husband (Jas
Salado was incorporated in 2000, where 2000 is for crossing the
Jordan and the width of the cities of the Levites, which
were icons of the Promised Land. Thus, Salado was
the symbol of an icon of the Promised Land. The USA
symbolizes the Promised Land, which can only be conquered from
Satan by Christians. However, the devastation of
Salado by the tornado is a sign of dying in the wilderness and
failing to enter the land. Two Baptist churches were
destroyed as evidence of this failure - Cedar Valley Baptist and
Victory Baptist. These churches corresponded to the
Morning Star, which was in Aquarius, for the herald of
Christ. The herald of the First Advent was John the
Baptist (or Baptizer) (Mt 3:3).
tornado was in the Salado Creek valley just as the Gilbert's Mill tornado in Florida on March
31, 2022 was in the Little Hard Labor Creek valley. Both
tornadoes were in the valley of cursing, symbolizing dying in
wilderness. They symbolized failure of Christians to
advance to Spiritual Maturity and become the real salt of
There were 23 people injured around Salado by the tornado, where
23 is for an historical uptrend from coming out of the
valley. The next day the governor of Texas shipped 23
illegal immigrants to Washington, DC to express his disapproval
with President Biden's refusal to enforce US immigration laws -
primarily Biden's decision to rollback Title 42, which blocked
immigration into the US during the COVID-19 pestilence.
Interestingly, the number 42 stands for Baal, the bear, and
Russia. Baal is the enemy of Israel, marriage, and
children. Texas is not alone in opposing Biden's
immigration policy. The situation today is very much like
it was in 1861 when Abraham Lincoln started the War Between the
States. Actually it was Baal on both sides who started the
war just as Satan is behind both sides in the Ukraine War.
The chart at
the time of the tornado in Salado contains a Sling, the weapon
for slaying giants. The center of the Sling is the Moon in
Leo, corresponding to the Government or politicians. The
Moon is rising from the Ascendant on the Spiritual side of
the chart. All other planets are on the Temporal
side. Leo corresponds to Ukraine in Europe and to
Washington, DC in the US. The Moon at the center of the
Sling corresponds to the Bell County judge who is the leader of
both the county government and the government of the city of
Salado. The chart is oriented between East and West just
as the opposition of Russia (East) to Ukraine (West).
Opposite Leo on the other side of the chart is Aquarius, which
corresponds to Florida and the Black Sea coast of Ukraine, where
Russian troops are massing for the next phase of the war.
The meaning of the planets in Aquarius are:
- Almighty God - the
Prostitute of Babylon
- Redeemer Planet -
redeemed from Sheol, the grave
- Morning Star - herald of
Christ, the voice crying in the wilderness
- Red Planet - bloody
water (on the beaches of Ukraine); the curse of Ecumenical
Babylon (Satan's lies)
Capricornus, corresponding to Texas, is beside Aquarius.
There are two planets in Capricornus:
Three planets are in
Aries. They are:
- God of the Covenants -
- Last Adam - an outcast,
for those cast out of
their homes by the tornado
- Mediator - an official,
such as the Judge of Bell County, who is the official in
charge of the government of the county and city of Salado
- Savior - a pastor, such
as the pastor of the Cedar Valley Baptist Church, who
vowed to rebuild.
- Sun - Heavenly glory,
the stars, like the Milky Way, corresponding to infamy of
falling in the wilderness.
The tornado in Salado, Texas like the Gilbert's Mill
tornado in Florida was Divine punishment of dying in the
wilderness. Although nobody was killed, Christians who
failed to advance to maturity were on their way to the grave and
taking the nation down with them. Salado was founded to
build a bridge over Salado Creek, where the creek symbolizes the
female and the bridge the male in marriage. Salado means
salty. Salty water is bitter in contrast to sweet
water. Sins of the tongue are like bitter water, which is
unfit to drink. Sins of the tongue should not be coming out
of the mouth. The nation is full of
vilification,vituperation, malicious gossip, implacability, and
verbal abuse, which have destroyed civility in government and
society. Granted these are sins from the Old Sin Nature, but
they are also evidence of demon influence from Satan and his
Cosmic System. The tornado went up FM 2843,where 28 is for a
cosmic stronghold and 43 is for fulfillment. The
cosmic stronghold of Satan prevented the Christian from being
fulfilled, reaching Spiritual Maturity.
The tornado symbolizes the breakdown of Marriage Culture from the
uncircumcised male. Uncircumcised means uncircumcised in
heart, or unsanctified. The marriage bed must be sanctified
not just from adultery but from demons (Heb 13:4).
Relationships with people include relationships with their angels
and demons. Sanctification from demons in marriage requires
reaching Spiritual Rapport. When this does not happen, Satan
runs the marriage, demonizes the children and pets, and
attacks the government and Divine Institutions.
There were 23 injured around Salado by the tornado on the
anniversary of the beginning of the War Between the
States. The next day the Texas Governor sent 23 illegal
immigrants on a bus to Washington, DC to defy President Biden for
rolling back Title 42, which prevented immigration due to the
COVID-19 pestilence. Twenty-one states are suing the
government over the Title 42 rollback. This situation is
quite similar to the opposition to Abraham Lincoln before the War
Between the States. Before the war the Christians of the
North and South were not sanctified from Baal and were not
advancing to Spiritual Maturity. It is the same today.
Two Baptist churches were reduced to rubble in Salado. That
was no accident. The Morning Star was in Aquarius, for
the herald of Christ. John the Baptist was a herald of
Christ, although he was not a modern Baptist (Matt 3:3).
The chart of the Salado tornado was oriented from East to
West. The Moon was on the Spiritual side of
the chart, and all the other planets were on the
Temporal side. In marriage the woman is on the Spiritual
side (right side) and the man is on the Temporal side (left
side). The Moon at the center of the Sling in the chart was
in Leo, for the government in Ukraine and Washington, DC.
The Moon was on the Spiritual side of the chart,corresponding to
influence of angels or demons. Aquarius was in opposition to
Leo on the Temporal side of the chart, corresponding to people
opposing the government under the influence of angels or
demons. Aquarius corresponds to Florida and the Black Sea
coast of Ukraine where the Russians are massing for attack.
The only hope is the Grace of God.
