Links: | Weather Links |August 28 (Day 241, Happiness): Two tropical storms with French names are strengthening in the Atlantic and headed toward the US mainland. Hurricane Frances, west of the Windward Islands, is currently packing winds of 115 knots. And Tropical Storm Gaston (pronounced Gas-taw) is off the coast of South Carolina with winds of 45 knots. The image of Gaston resembles a girl wearing a headscarf. Frances is feminine for France, and Gaston is masculine for a person from Gascony in southwestern France.

Christian Chesnot with Radio France International and Georges Malbrunot with the newspaper Le Figaro have been missing since August 21.
Two hurricanes in the Atlantic have French names. And two French journalists are being held hostage by Islamic terrorists in Iraq. The terrorists are demanding an end to France's ban on headscarfs in public schools. How did this become such a big issue? A law was passed to make criminals out of children who wear scarfs. And now terrorists have kidnapped French journalists to call attention to the issue. Even the weather angels have illustrated the cause. The location of France in Europe corresponds to the location of Israel in Asia.
The Spiritual issue in all this was first faced by the Corinthians. The question was posed as to whether a woman should pray with her head uncovered (1 Corinthians 11:5-15). However, contrary to all the misconceptions, the passage has nothing to do with scarfs. In 1 Corinthians 11:15 it says that a woman's hair is given to her for a covering, which can also be translated, "instead of a covering." Women express their response to authority with their hair. Long hair symbolizes submission to the authority of the Right Man. Short hair refers to being contentious. And a shaved head represents shame, or one who is jaded. A woman who wears a scarf to church is a religious counterfeit who has rebelled against authority.
Tropical storms represent rejection of the grace message of the pastor-teacher by the local congregation like the rebellious female who rejects the authority of her Right Man. A woman wearing a scarf illustrates a rebellious female who rejects the authority of the pastor-teacher as well as her Right Man. However, a woman wearing a scar is not a criminal, regardless of French law.
Tropical Storm Gaston is forecast to hit South Carolina tomorrow. Hurricane Charley devastated Florida during the opening ceremony of the Athens Olympics. Now Tropical Storm Gaston is aiming for South Carolina on closing day of the Olympics. The Olympics are being held in Greece. Corinth was also in Greece. The Florida waterspout was a reminder of the cursing of Hurricane Charley associated with the Athens Olympics, which are held in honor Zeus, who represents Satan as king of the world.
In addition to the two French journalists and two hurricanes, two Russian airliners were bombed by two Chechen women terrorists on August 24, for Satan's strategic attack on Israel. The number, 2, stands for divine division.
