Amtrak Wreck; Leah Fastow; Dog Kicked to Death; Circus Fall

Iraqi Uprising

Links:  | CNN | AP | Map |
April 7 (Day 98, Glory Has Departed):  Iraqi terrorist guerillas mobilized and attacked US forces in the worst uprising since the end of the war.  Sunni Muslims battled US Marines in the streets of Fallujah and neighboring towns.  And Shiite Muslims from the 3,000 troop Mehdi Army of cleric Muqtada al-Sadr battled US forces in cities south of Baghdad.  Sadr's terrorists have taken  control of Kut and Najaf.  The uprising escalated rapidly following Muslim prayers Friday, April 2nd.

Amtrak Train Derails in Mississippi

An Amtrak train enroute from New Orleans to Chicago, derailed near Flora, Mississippi about 25 miles north of Jackson.  One person was killed and 58 injured.  Clara L. Downs, 68, from Chicago was killed.  There were 68 passengers and 12 crew onboard.  Of the 9 cars plus the locomotive, all 9 cars derailed.  Flora is at 32 N., for a conspiracy, and 90 W., for a new order.

Leah Fastow Plea Deal Collapses

Lea Fastow, wife of Enron Chief Financial Officer, Andrew Fastow, withdrew her guilty plea after U.S. District Judge David Hittner refused to agree to the proposed sentence.  He said he would sentence Lea to between 10 and 16 months.  He also ordered that the trial be moved from Houston to Brownsville.  Jury selection will start June 2nd.  The change in Lea's plea will not affect the plea agreement with Andrew Fastow.

Dog Kicked to Death

Yesterday, a 2-pound miniature Yorkshire terrier in Nashville was killed by kicking it into the air like a football.  The fragile, 17-year old dog named Gizmo was killed instantly.  The owner's boyfriend chased down the culprit and held him until police arrived.  Since Gizmo was valued at $1,500, Chad Daniel Crawford, 23, was charged with felony vandalism and released on $25,000 bail.  Tennessee represents the criminal justice system.

Circus Performer Falls

A Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus performer fell from a tightrope last night onto mats below and survived.  Ernando Amaya, 34, in the 134th edition of the circus at Madison Square Garden fell from 25 feet as he was returning to the platform after finishing his performance.  He was listed in stable condition in the hospital.  The number, 34, stands for the division of the land.

Tightrope walkers must keep their concentration and avoid fear much like a Christian walking in faith.  The Lord Jesus Christ was tested by the devil with heights.  He was taken to the pinnacle of the temple and challenged to jump (Matthew 4:5-7).  The humanity of Christ would likely have been killed in such a fall, while His deity would have survived.  If the humanity of Christ had died in the fall, He would have been unable to go to the Cross.  Therefore, the Lord rejected the devil's test.  The devil still tests Christians with fear of heights.  Concentrating on the problem rather than the solution can lead to paranoia and neurosis.

Houston Thunderstorms

Thunderstorms rolled through Houston from 10:30 AM until 3:00 PM CDT yesterday.  The area was under a flash-flood watch.  There was heavy rain, hail, and tornado watches.  Two inches of rain fell in the Clear Lake area and quarter-size hail fell near Westheimer at Montrose Boulevard in Houston.
Snake, 4-7-04, 0015 GMT, PSC Horse, 4-7-04, 2115 GMT, NOAA SPC Storm Report, 4-6-04


Five tornadoes were reported in the USA.  Four were in south Texas at 96 W., for the spoils of victory, and one was in Oklahoma.  The first was in Vanderbilt, Texas in Jackson County at 28 N., for a cosmic stronghold, and 96 W., for the spoils of victory.  The Oklahoma tornado was 7 south of Hollister at 34 N., for the division of the land, and 98 W., for the glory has departed.  There were at least 12 hail and 7 wind damage reports.  The severe weather was associated with the image of a serpent.

The weather map over the USA today featured a horse over Virginia, North and South Carolina.  A horse represents war and a male phallic reversionist.


Tornadoes and severe weather that swept through Texas moved over the President's Crawford ranch.  The Texas tornadoes were all at 96 W., for the spoils of victory.  The severe weather formed the image of a snake, the symbol of Satan.  The Oklahoma tornado was at 34 N., for the division of the land, and 98 W., for the glory has departed.  Ernando Amaya, 34, in the 134th edition of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus circus, fell from a tight rope.  The number, 34, stands for the division of the land, which points to the Road Map for peace.

The weather map also featured the image of a horse over the region of Judah, which stands for military leadership.  A horse represents war and a male phallic reversionist.  In Iraq, Sunni and Shiite Muslims are attacking US forces.  The major uprising was in Fallujah, a city the US never conquered.  The evil Muslims were allowed to keep the spoils of victory, and now the US is paying the price.

Chad Daniel Crawford was arrested for kicking a dog like a football in Nashville, Tennessee.  President Bush is spending the week at his Crawford ranch.  Bush won the Presidential election in a dispute over chad in Florida.  Chad is like the chaff, which the wind drives away.  The President's dog, Spot, died on February 21st as a symbol of the authority counterattack of the Bush Administration against Israel's handling of the security fence.  Refer to the doctrine of Animals for an objective viewpoint of animals.

An Amtrak train derailed in Mississippi at 32 N., for a conspiracy, and 90 W., for a new order.  The number, 32, is often associated with Syria.  Syrian terrorists are fighting the US in Fallujah.  The number, 90, refers to the new order of Israel.  A train derailment represents a strategic failure.  Mississippi corresponds to law enforcement over a city.  The US forgot to enforce the law in Fallujah, and Israel does not enforce the law in the Palestinian areas.  Those who put up with terrorists will suffer the consequences.  The US strategy of the Road Map for peace is a failure.

The flash flooding and severe weather in the Houston area yesterday heralded today's plea agreement failure of Lea Fastow in Houston Court.  Flooding and hail represent cursing associated with the female in Marriage Culture.  The Fastows are Jews who are protected by the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:3).  Those who curse them will be cursed, regardless of whether they are guilty.  Previous judgments of the Fastows have brought cursing to Houston.  The judge sent the trial to Brownsville for Hurricane season, which could be a problem.

Today was April 7th, for Categorical Punishment.  And it was Day 98, for the glory has departed.

Bible Doctrine

This is Bible Doctrine.  The image of the horse over the region of Judah in the US corresponded to the fighting between US forces and the Iraqi Muslims.  The image of a striking snake over President Bush's Crawford ranch represented the curse of Satan.  The snake also passed through Houston where Lea Fastow was sent to trial today.  The Amtrak train wreck represented a strategic failure, such as Bush's Road Map for peace.  It also pointed out the failure of US strategy of not to establishing law and order in Fallujah.  The number, 34, for the division of the land, was associated with a tornado and the fall of a circus performer in New York.  The number, 34, is also associated with the Road Map for peace.
