Links: | CNN | Ha'aretz | AP |October 8 (Day 282, Historical Breakpoint): Terrorists bombed 2 Egyptian resorts on the Red Sea that were packed with Israeli tourists celebrating the Succoth holiday. At least 30 people were killed and over 100 injured. Most of the casualties were in the Hilton at Taba, which is just across the Israeli border. A car bomb at the Taba Hilton exploded about 10:00 PM. About 2 hours later 2 car bombs exploded at Ras-Satan, where 2 were killed. One of the cars was headed off by police, which prevented further casualties
Ten floors collapsed in the Taba Hilton after it was hit with the bomb. Taba is at 29 N., for victory over Edom, and 34 E., for the division of the land, which points to the Middle East peace process. The simultaneous bombings have the signature of al-Qa'eda even though others have claimed responsibility. The bombings occurred on October 7, for categorical punishment, and Day 281, for a grace counterattack. Isaiah warned against those who go down to Egypt (Isaiah 31:1).
The bombings of the Egyptian resorts were heralded earlier by the hurricanes that destroyed luxury houses along Florida beaches. "The love of money - root of all evil! (1 Timothy 6:10).
Links: | Weather Links |Tropical Storm Matthew was named in the Gulf of Mexico off Mexico. Winds are reportedly 35 knots in the large tropical system that is bringing heavy rain to the Gulf coast. The initial position was 24 N., for Satan's strategic attack on Israel, and 93 W., for guilt.
Matthew brewed from a system that resembled a trumpeter swan off Mexico
and Texas on October 6. The trumpeter
swan represents the Cross. It flies with its head and legs extended
to make the sign of the cross. It also represents Christ, the cornerstone,
who brought the two walls of Jews and Gentiles together (Ephesians
2:12-21). Both the Jews and Palestinians reject Jesus Christ
as Savior. The constellation, Cygnus, the Swan, is part of the
Gospel. The image of the swan transformed into a moose
today. A moose is a giant deer. It is
the largest member of the deer family and represents an Angelic
Power. Like a deer, it is quite peaceful; but, like a giant,
it can be vicious when provoked. This is moose mating
season. A dear symbolizes peace, which points to the Middle East
peace process as the cause for the terrorist bombings.
