Israel Completes Gaza Pullout

Israel Completes Gaza Pullout

Links: | Ha'aretz | CNN | AP |
August 22 (Day 234, Division of the Land):  Israel completed the evacuation of settlers from the Gaza Strip seven days after the pullout began.  Today, Netzarim became the last of the 21 Gaza settlements to be evacuated as mourning residents departed.  Torah scrolls and the synagogue's menorah were carried through the city streets in a scene reminiscent of the Roman Army of Titus carrying away the furnishings of the Temple after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD.  Some of the settlers boarded buses for departure without resistance, while a few clashed with police and soldiers.   The settlers were taken to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.  There were 80 veteran families and 20 families of newcomers in the settlement of about 500 people.

Bulldozers have been razing the Israeli villages in Gaza after the settlers departed.  All that remains are piles of rubble.  The evacuation of the last two of the northern West Bank settlements of Homesh and Sa-Nur will begin tomorrow.   Israel captured the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the 1967 Six Day War, which was 38 years ago, where 38 stands for dying in the wilderness.  The Gaza withdrawal came 57 years after modern Israel became a nation.  The number, 57, is for Zebulun, which has been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza.  The Gaza withdrawal began the day after the Feast of Straits, which commemorates the fall of the last Israeli Client Nation to the Romans on August 9, 70 AD.  Evacuation of the settlers was  completed today on August 22, for cursing.  It was Day 234, for the division of the land, which has come to symbolize the land for peace process.

Heralds of the Pullout

Bush in Utah | CNN | AP |

President Bush delivered a speech in defense of the Iraq War at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Utah is in the region of the Gershonites, the outcasts and symbols of the Fifth Cycle of Discipline (Matthew 5:13-16).

Portugal Forest Fires | CNN | Gulf Times |

With 32 blazes raging out of control, Portugal is covered by wild fires driven by 70 mph winds.  European neighbors are sending relief for the weary fire fighters and army.  It is the worst drought in Portugal since 1945.   Portugal is in the region of Europe that corresponds to the location of Israel in Asia.  The fires represent Fire Testing.


Hurricanes or Tropical Storms are in the Gulf of Mexico, eastern Pacific, and Western Pacific.  Hurricane Hilary is off the eastern coast of Mexico in the region of Ecumenical Babylon.  Tropical Storm Jose was named today in the saddle of the Yucatan in the Gulf of Mexico in the region of Political Babylon.  And a pair of storms, Typhoon Mawar and Tropical Storm Guchol, are in the western Pacific in the region of Cosmic Babylon.  Mawar means rose, the symbol of a prostitute, while Guchol means the spice Turmeric, which is used for curry and corresponds to saffron (SOS  4:14) in Solomon's description of the female.  The storms portray the witness of the Prostitute of Babylon.   Mawar is headed for Japan.  A pair represents a witness, as in court.

The proposed peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians is sponsored by the United Nations, European Union, Russia, and the US.  The US, the leader, represents Political Babylon between Cosmic and Ecumenical Babylon of Israel and the Palestinians.  The peace proposal is in the Cosmic System.  A hurricane represents the rejection of the grace message of the pastor by the congregation like the rebellious female who rejects the authority of her Right Man

Orlando Plane Belly Up | WKMG |

A sudden wind gust flipped a plane belly up as it was landing at Orlando-Sanford International Airport in Florida.  Belly up is the sign of a dead fish and the sin unto death.  Florida in the region of Zebulun has been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza.


In an ironic twist of fate Netzarim was the last Israeli settlement in Gaza to be evacuated.  Netzarim in Hebrew is the equivalent of the Hellenized form, Nazarenes.  Whereas, the original Nazarenes were the followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Hellenistic Netzarim were apostates who rejected the Savior and Messiah of Israel.  The evacuation of Netzarim is another historical sign to the Jews like the birth of the Savior in a feeding trough (Isaiah 1:3; Luke 2:7, 12, 16) and the evangelism of the Jews in foreign languages at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-13).

The divine viewpoint of the completion of Israel's evacuation of Gaza was revealed by heralds on the World Stage.  President Bush was in Utah, the region associated with the Gershonites, the outcasts and symbols of the Fifth Cycle of Discipline (Matthew 5:13-16).  Forest Fires raged though Portugal.  Forest Fires represent Fire Testing.  The location of Portugal in Europe corresponds to the location of Israel in Asia.  Hurricanes or tropical storms were in the regions that correspond to Cosmic, Political, and Ecumenical Babylon.  The Road Map for peace is an attempt to bring together Cosmic, Political, and Ecumenical Babylon.  The three factions in Iraq today, the Kurds, Sunnis, and Shiites, represent Cosmic, Political, and Ecumenical Babylon.  The pair of storms in the Pacific represent the Prostitute of Babylon, who has damaged Marriage Culture and led to this mess.  A plane in Florida was turned belly up during landing.  Belly up is the sign of the sin unto death.  And Florida has been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza.  Israel's retreat from Gaza is a severe blow to Florida as evidenced by last year's hurricane damage to the state.

Modern Israel was founded in 1948, where 48 stands for the inheritance of the Levites.  The withdrawal from Gaza came 57 years later, where 57 stands for Zebulun, which corresponds to the Palestinians at Gaza.  Israel has occupied the Gaza Strip and West Bank for 38 years, which represents dying in the wilderness.  The generation that left Egypt in the Exodus died in the wilderness because the people rejected the Spiritual life.  The evacuation of Gaza settlers was completed on August 22, for cursing.  It was Day 234, for the division of the land, which has become synonymous with the Middle East peace process.  The Lord Jesus Christ controls human history per the Sovereign Design of God.
