Israeli Military Leaves Gaza

After 38 Years

The generation of Jews who left Egypt in the Exodus died in the wilderness after 38 years.  They died the sin unto death because they rejected Bible Doctrine.  The only two exceptions were Caleb and Joshua, who listened and lived.  Today, the Israeli military departed from the Gaza Strip after 38 years of military rule to symbolize the same fate.  Like their predecessors in the Exodus generation, they rejected Bible Doctrine.  What's more, they rejected the only Savior, their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.  And their counterparts, the Baby Boom generation in the USA, with rare exceptions, are dying in the wilderness after rejecting Bible Doctrine.

Israeli Military Leaves Gaza

Links:  | Ha'aretz |
September 12 (Day 255, Blessing):  The Israeli military pulled out of the Gaza Strip this morning to end 38 years of military rule.  The pullout began at 1:00 AM, and at 7:00 AM the soldiers locked the gate behind them at the Kissufim crossing between Israel and Gaza.  Before the pullout, the Israelis had destroyed almost everything except for 24 synagogues in the Gaza Strip, where 24 stands for Satan's strategic attack on Israel.

Palestinian looters quickly moved in and set about looting, destroying, and burning anything that was left.  Palestinian bulldozers destroyed the synagogues that were left behind as others ripped them apart with their bare hands and stood atop the domes waving Hamas banners.  Others ran to the beach and into the surf in their street clothes.  For many, it was their first trip to the beach.  Five of them drowned.  Others dashed across the Egyptian border where a 14-year old boy was shot dead in the mayhem.

Israel took over the Gaza Strip in 1967 in the Six Day War.  The Israeli military protected Israeli settlements that symbolized the fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenant.  However, like their counterparts in the Exodus generation who died in the wilderness, God rejected them.  They failed after 38 years, the number for dying in the wilderness.

Deuteronomy 2:14-15, NAS
14 “Now the time that it took for us to come from Kadesh-barnea, until we crossed over the brook Zered, was thirty-eight years; until all the generation of the men of war perished from within the camp, as the LORD had sworn to them. 15 “Moreover the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy them from within the camp, until they all perished.
The Israeli occupation of Gaza ended on September 12, for authority, in the ninth month, for the Plagues of Egypt.  It was Day 255, for blessing in the midst of suffering.  The soldiers were happy to leave.  The Israeli citizens were happy.  And God was Happy as He always is.  Departing the Gaza Strip after 38 years per the Torah was God's decision, not man's.   Make no mistake, this was not God directive will.  The land of the Gaza Strip had been deeded to Abraham and his descendants for all generations through the Millennium.  The short term happiness in departing Gaza will not contribute to long term peace or happiness for Israel.   And God will not bless the Palestinians.  There day will come!

Israel lacked the support of Christians in Client Nation USA.  A generation of American Christians who were 20 and older in 1967 have rejected Bible Doctrine just like the Exodus generation.  It is the responsibility of Client Nation USA to protect Israel against Satan's lies.  That did not happen.  There have only been a few of the Baby Boomers like Caleb and Joshua, who have reached Spiritual Maturity.  Most others are dying in the wilderness.  This played out by Israel succumbing to the devil's lies.

Bush Tours New Orleans

President Bush toured flood ravaged New Orleans today in a military truck.  He stood in the back the truck along with Louisiana Governor Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin.  The three in parallel represented the power sharing of Cosmic, Political, and Ecumenical Babylon.  The President a wore plaid shirt, the symbol of judgment, and the Governor wore red, for suffering.

Tropical Storm Ophelia

Tropical Storm Ophelia weakened as it looped off the South Carolina coast.  As the eyewall eroded, the storm appeared to have a large, donut-sized eye.  The storm is drifting without any strong steering currents, and weather forecasters are unable to chart a predicted path with any accuracy.  The loops symbolize a criminal.

South Carolina is in the region that corresponds to Judah and military leadership.  Tropical Storm Ophelia has been tracking the Israeli military pullout from Gaza.

California Electrical Blackout

Los Angeles had an electrical power blackout at midday.  Power failed to about 2 million customers after utility workers connected the wrong wires during installation of an automated transmission system.  Traffic was snarled when traffic lights went out; people were stranded in elevators; and there was general confusion.

California in the US is in the same location as Israel in Asia.  A power blackout represents the Judgment of Political Babylon.


The Israeli military pulled out of the Gaza Strip after 38 years, which represents dying in the wilderness.  The men of Israel 20 and up (the draft age), died in the wilderness after the Exodus from Egypt.  Devastating Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans and much of the Gulf coast during Israel's pullout from Gaza.  US foreign policy toward Israel was not in the directive will of God.  Consequently, the US was Judged by the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:3).  Hurricane Katrina was a plague on the US just like the Plagues of Egypt, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and the 2004 hurricanes in Florida.  And it was the sign of dying in the wilderness as bodies lay in the streets of New Orleans.

The fall of New Orleans also represented the fall of Babylon in the Tribulation and the Judgment of the Prostitute of Babylon, by the Evil King.   Just as Tribulational Babylon will be broken into three parts by a great earthquake, New Orleans was broken into three power spheres in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Today, the representatives of the three spheres toured New Orleans.  Mayor Nagin, President Bush, and Governor Blanco stood in the back of a military truck as it drove through the New Orleans flood waters to symbolize Cosmic, Political, and Ecumenical Babylon.  This also represented  the Prostitute of Babylon, who sits on many waters.  The Evil King will destroy the Prostitute of Babylon in the Tribulation (Revelation 17:16).

Los Angeles, California suffered a massive electrical power blackout that affected about 2 million customers, the approximate size of the Exodus generation.  California in the US corresponds to the location of Israel in Asia.  A power blackout represents the Judgment of Political Babylon.  US foreign policy which led to the Gaza pullout corresponds to Political Babylon.

Tropical Storm Ophelia weakened after making loops off the coast of South Carolina in the Atlantic, the region of Political Babylon.  Loops represent a criminal.  Louisiana is the region of Simeon criminality.  Today, Israel turned over the Gaza Strip to the Palestinians, who looted and destroyed the property left behind by the Israelis.  The Palestinians of Gaza are the ultimate symbols of Arab criminals and lawlessness.  Tropical Storm Ophelia developed a large eye, which represented grace and the weakening of the storm.  Ophelia made loops off Brevard County, Florida during the funeral of former Supreme Court Chief Justice, William Rehnquist.  Today, confirmation hearing began for John Roberts as his replacement.  Brevard County is Florida county #19, for the federal judiciary.  New Orleans was a judicial failure.

In spite of it all, this was Day 255, for blessing in the midst of cursing.  The greatest blessing comes from great suffering.  In spite of all who are dying in the wilderness today, there were a precious few like Caleb and Joshua who were greatly blessed.  Israel could not hold onto Gaza because it had no leaders like Joshua.  Joshua didn't try to rule terrorists.  He annihilated them.  But this could not happen today because Israel rejected the only Savior, Jesus Christ, the Messiah, and because the salt of the land in Client Nation USA has lost its savor.  The Baby Boom generation in the US, which was 20 years old and up in 1967, failed to obey Bible Doctrine like their counterparts in the Exodus generation, who died in the wilderness.  There was blessing today in the midst of suffering for those few who had attained Spiritual Maturity.
