Bloody Massacre of Israelis by Hamas Terrorists from Gaza

October 7, 2023 (Day 280):  Israel was caught off guard in a surprise attack of Hamas from Gaza.  The Hamas Palestinians from Gaza attacked Israel in coordinated attacks by land, sea, and air at dawn.  The Hamas terrorists began with a barrage of thousands of missiles.  Ground forces breached the new enhanced security fence on the Gaza border.  They shot out the  video cameras, and took over the Israeli security facilities.  Terrorists armed with automatic weapons flew on gliders into Israeli cities on the southern border on suicide missions.  Convoys of armed militia in pickup trucks drove to Israeli cities and went door-to-door, shooting residents and taking hostages, including women, children, and babies.  Other terrorists went to a rave concert (music festival) in the desert and massacred the attendees as they danced in the early hours of the morning of the Jewish Sabbath.  Palestinians also tried to breach Israel from the sea, but the Israeli Navy wiped them out in short order.

On the day of the Hamas attack on Israel, there were major earthquakes in Papua New Guinea, Afghanistan, and Mexico.  The death toll in Western Afghanistan was reported the next day to be over 1,000.  In addition to the earthquakes there was flooding in New York, Boston, and cities in the Northeastern US from the remnants of  Hurricane Philippe that made landfall in Maine and Canada.  So,  there were environmental  curses from the land, sea, and air on the day of the Hamas attack.

By the next day the toll was over 700 Israelis killed (260 from the music festival), 130 Israeli hostages, and 2,200 injured.

Israel retaliated by clearing out the Hamas terrorists in southern cities and bombing Hamas infrastructure in the  Gaza Strip.  Prime Minister Netanyahu declared that Israel was at war with Hamas.

The Hamas attack was during the 50th anniversary of  the 1973 Yom Kippur War, which began on Oct. 6, 1973.  The last major Israeli incursion into Gaza was in 2014 in which the truce ending 50 days of fighting occurred on August 26.  The number 50 is for Pentecost or  the Church, and 1973 is for freedom (73).  Israel is headed for a repeat of the 2014 Gaza incursion.  The number 50 associated with the 1973 and 2014 conflicts with Hamas indicates the role of the Church in historical trends related to Israel.  According to prophecy, Jerusalem will be trodden down until the times of the Gentiles (Church Age) are fulfilled (Luke 21:23, 24).  Israel has rejected Jesus Christ and brought curses from the Gentiles upon itself.

CometThe earthquakes on October 7, 2023 followed previous earthquakes in Morocco linked to the curse of Comet Nishimura like the Turkey earthquakes February 7, 2023 were linked to the Green Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF.  The earthquakes associated with  the two comets symbolize the destruction of the world at the Second Advent.  The Lord will destroy the Kingdom of Satan's World at the Second Advent as the "stone cut out without hands" that breaks up the feet of clay of the image seen by Nebuchadnezzar (ref. Daniel 2:34, 35).  Buildings collapsing in the earthquakes symbolized the break up of the foundations and subsequent destruction of the Devil's World.  The feet of pottery and iron of the image in Nebuchadnezzar's dream correspond to foundations of reinforced concrete (steel and concrete).

At the time of the strongest 6.9 magnitude earthquake in Papua New Guinea Comet Nishimura was beside Corvus, the Raven, eating Hydra, the Flying Serpent, corresponding to the torment of the damned, the raven tearing the serpent.  The missiles fired by Hamas were like flying serpents.  

Spiritual Meaning

The Hamas attack on Israel came from the land, sea, and air.  On the day of the attack there were Divine Judgments from the land, sea, and air, corresponding to Ecumenical, Political, and Cosmic Babylon.  There were  major earthquakes in Papua New Guinea, Afghanistan, and Mexico.  Earthquakes are the judgment of Ecumenical Babylon associated with the land.  The buildings of the devil's world were reduced to rubble, and people were killed corresponding to the Judgment from Jesus Christ as the "stone cut out without hands" which will destroy Satan's kingdom at the Second Advent. 

The remnants of Tropical Storm Philippe came from the sea (Political Babylon) and hit Maine and Canada.  Heavy rain came from the air (Cosmic Babylon) and caused flooding in New York,  Boston, and the Northeastern US.  The Hamas rockets came from the air.

The Hamas attack on Israel was on the 50th Anniversary of the Yom Kippur War that began Oct. 6, 1973.  The last major attack on Israel from Hamas occurred in 2014 when a truce ended 50 days of fighting.  Yom Kippur is the Great Day of Atonement, when the Lord will return and conquer the enemies of  Israel.  The number 50 is for Pentecost or the Church.  Israel's problem with Hamas is related to the Church.  During the Church Age, Israel has rejected the Lord Jesus Christ and the Church.  Because Israel has rejected Jesus Christ it will be cursed by the Gentiles until the end of the Church Age (
Luke 21:23, 24).  Israel will be trodden down by the Gentiles.  The Chart for the upcoming Annular Solar Eclipse on Oct. 14, 2023 contains a Horse's Hoof configuration along with a Carafe to symbolize Israel's problems with Gaza.

The attack on Israel by Hamas was decreed by God and executed by Satan.  The attack came as the next generation of Israelis were dancing in the desert after partying all night on the morning of the Sabbath.  They died in the desert as predicted by the truce with Hamas on August 26, 2014 (Day 238), where 238 is for dying in the  wilderness (desert).  The Hamas attack was Israel's 911.  Hamas had no hope of defeating Israel.  The attack was an act of wrath expressing Satan's hatred of  Israel.  Israel was lulled into a false sense of security by hopes of peace with the Arabs.  The only hope Israel has is the Lord Jesus Christ, whom it has rejected.


Hamas AttackThe Chart at the time of the Hamas attack on Israel (6:30 AM local) contains a Castle, a Boomerang, and a Plow.  The Castle symbolizes the  abode of a king, corresponding to the government of Israel.  The Boomerang is for skill in critical timing.  Hamas picked a perfect time for the attack, but God also picked  the time associated with the Day of the Second Advent.  Israel is waiting for that day for peace.  The Boomerang pointed at the Morning Star in Leo, for a sovereign, referring to the sovereign authority of the Lord, Who deeded the land to Israel - not the Palestinians.  The Plow is for intense suffering, like being plowed under.  The Plow pointed to the Mediator Planet in Aries, for an official.  Israeli officials came out to handle the crisis, and in the future it is likely that some of officials' heads will  roll.

The Sun is in Virgo near the Ascendant, for the clothing of Israel as the mother of Christ (Rev. 12:1).  The Sun was flanked on one side by the Savior Planet, for weeping for Rachel's children.  On the other side was the Red Planet in Libra , for bloody  judgment, corresponding to the Hamas attack.

The Moon was in Gemini, for a wedding party, corresponding to the music festival in the desert at the time of the Hamas attack.

The God of the Covenants was in Aquarius, for the Noahic Covenant, corresponding to flooding in New York from Tropical Storm Philippe.  Aquarius also is  associated with Gaza, which is by the sea.

Earthquake Chart

EarthquakeThe Chart at the time of the earthquake in Papua New Guinea contains a Castle, a Boomerang, and a Plow, like the chart of the Hamas attack.  However, the time is different, and therefore the orientation of the chart is different.  The Sun has just set in contrast to preparing to rise in the Hamas attack chart.  The Red Planet is on the Descendant at the point of the Plow, for concluding bloody judgment.  And the Savior Planet has already set.  The three planets symbolize Cosmic, Political,  and  Ecumenical Babylon - Satan.  Satan is going down in defeat from Divine judgment.

The Moon is at the Bottom of Heaven, for death of a wedding party, corresponding to the death of Israelis at the music festival in the desert.

The Last Adam in Capricornus was in conjunction with Midheaven, which was in Sagittarius.  Sagittarius symbolizes a raiding band, corresponding  to the Hamas terrorists.  The Last Adam in Capricornus is for the mystery of lawless, corresponding to an antichrist.

The Redeemer in Pisces was rising, for a Levitical offering, corresponding to being poured out as a sacrifice or offering for redemption from the slavery to sin (Rom 12:1; Phil 2:17; 2 Tim 4:6).

The God of the Covenants was in Aquarius, for the Noahic Covenant, corresponding to flooding in NY.  Aquarius corresponds to the locations of Papua New Guinea and to Gaza.


Hamas attacked Israel from Gaza by surprise on the Sabbath.  Thousands of missiles were fired into Israel, overwhelming the Iron Dome defense system.  The Gaza high-tech security fence was breached, and convoys of armed militia infiltrated southern Israel.  There was a massacre at a music festival in the desert, and hostages were taken.  It was like Pearl Harbor and 911.  The attack was a bloody mess from the human perspective, but from the Divine perspective there were clues that revealed basic doctrines about Israel from the Bible.  As Israel and the world set out to find answers of what went wrong, the answers will likely be elusive because history in Israel has continued to repeat itself in spite of numerous attempts to remedy the situation.

The attack by Hamas, was a terrorist attack that vented wrath and made a big noise but accomplished very little for the Palestinians.  Hamas was not able to wage war against Israel; so the terrorists broke out and shot up the place.  In the end the terrorists will lose ten times more than they gained.  They are like barking dogs or bitter wives.  They can destroy but not build.

The terrorists are like the demon gangs who work for Satan.  If they pretend to love you, it's so they can vent their wrath on you.  Israel is looking for peace at the Second Advent, but in the mean time it won't happen.  God has decreed that Israel will be trodden down by the Gentiles (Arabs) until the Church Age is complete.  Every time Israel talks peace the Arabs want land in return.  The land belongs to Israel as an inheritance.  The boundaries of the land are guarded by angels, and when Israel decides to give the land away, God punishes Israel severely.  Satan is behind both the peace process and the terrorists.  And God lets Satan punish Israel, which just happened.

The Hamas attack on Israel on Oct. 7, 2023 was on the 50th anniversary of  the Yom Kippur War, which began on Oct. 6, 1973, where 50 is the number for Pentecost or the Church, which began on Pentecost, and 73 is for freedom.  A previous attack by Hamas on Israel in 2014 lasted 50 days before a truce was made.  Three teen hostages were taken and killed by Hamas.  Israel retaliated by invading Gaza.  The truce was made on August 26, Day 238, for dying in the wilderness.  The truce did not last.  It is no longer true.  The truce didn't last because Israel will be trodden down until the  times of  the Gentiles (Arabs) are fulfilled.  Israel is under the curse (including the curse of the comet Nishimura) because it has rejected the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.  Israel has rejected Jesus Christ and the Church.  Those at the music festival rejected Christianity and died in the wilderness in fulfillment of the Aug. 26, 2014 truce on the day for dying in the wilderness. 
Israel's inheritance of the Promised Land is guarded by angels, but Satan and his demons are trying to take it away.  This statement is literally true.  It is not literary hyperbole.  The angel Michael guards Israel, and he also carries away the dead.    The music festival was demonic like the pied piper (Gen 4:20-21).  "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy" (Ex 20:8).  Keeping the Sabbath does not apply in the Church Age, but keeping the day holy does apply (Rom 6:14; Gal 2:16; 4:21).    Satan's demons put on a rave, and those who attended died in the wilderness (desert).  Keeping the Law will not save, but being sanctified by faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior will save (Rom 3:28).
