Roaring Lion Tornadoes Strike Nebraska

April  15 (Day 105, Grace):  A swarm of tornadoes that struck Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska appeared as a roaring lion on the weather map.  There was heavy damage to some homes and buildings but no major injuries reported.  A large whirlwind, which was plainly visible on the weather map, circulated over the region.  A whirlwind symbolizes judgment from one's own choices, sowing to the wind and reaping the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7a).

The first tornadoes were reported near Beatrice, Nebraska.  Beatrice is from the Latin, Viatrix, meaning voyager, traveler.  This was the name of Beatrix Potter, who created the tale of Peter Rabbit.  Tomorrow is Easter, and tornadoes with the image of a rabbit overhead clobbered Iowa on April 13.

Mountain Lion Attacks Colorado Boy

A seven-year old boy, who was mauled by a mountain lion in Colorado, is recovering in the hospital.  He was the last of seven people in a single file on a hike on Flagstaff Mountain.  A lion represents Satan who prowls around like a roaring lion (1 Peter 5:8).

Conclusion

A storm system that appeared as a lion on the weather map produced tornadoes in Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri.  And a mountain lion attacked a seven-year old boy in Colorado, the region of the summits, which corresponds to recent US attempts to gain peace through diplomacy (e.g. in the Middle East and Iran).  The lion symbolizes Satan, who prowls around like a roaring lion (1 Peter 5:8).  This reveals Satan as the inspiration of the Evil King.  The Evil King corresponds to the new Hamas leaders of the Palestinians and the anti-Semitic leaders of Iran.  Animal attacks on children are a sign of the Third Cycle of Discipline (Leviticus 26:22).  The attack on the boy, who was 7 and seventh in line, corresponds to the meaning of the year, 2006, as the year for man and the sixth in a sequence of seven.  The number, 7, means categorical punishment.

The storm system that produced the tornadoes also appeared as a large whirlwind.  A whirlwind symbolizes self-inflicted punishment under the Law of Volitional Responsibility, i.e. reaping what one sows (Hosea 8:7a).

It was April 15, for a covering, which is God's solution.  And it was Day 105, for grace or a giant.
