June 8 (Day 159,
Simeon): NASA successfully launched
the STS-117 Space Shuttle from Kennedy Space Center Florida at 7:38/04
PM EDT (2338/04 GMT). The STS-117 mission with Orbiter Atlantis
(OV-104) will deliver truss segments and solar panels along with a replacement
crew member to the International Space Station. Crew member, Clayton
Anderson will replace Expedition 15 Flight Engineer Sunita Williams on
the Space Station.
The image of a cicada
was visible on the satellite weather map over Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
Cicada, which are swarming now in the midwest and other regions, including
Florida, come out of the ground every 17 years to symbolize the Resurrection.
The late Johnny Cash,
who sang like a cicada, was born on February 26, 1932, Day 57. The
STS-117 External Tank was damaged by hail on February
26, 2007, Day 57, where 57 stands for Zebulun and corresponds to Florida.
NASA launched STS-117 on June 8, 2007, Day 159.
The number, 117, stands for the witness of lawlessness, and 159 is for
Simeon criminality. The region of Simeon corresponds to Louisiana
where the External Tank is made. The External Tank that was launched
had been damaged by hail, and was full of white specks where repairs were
made. And today US Representative William
Jefferson, D-La., was arraigned in federal court on charges of racketeering,
money-laundering and soliciting bribes. Republican John Boehner of
Ohio offered a resolution calling for the Ethics Committee to report on
whether Jefferson should be removed from the House of Representatives.
The resolution passed 373-26. Expedition 15 Flight Engineer Sunita
Williams was born in Ohio, the region of Naphtali, for peace. During
today's launch, she was wearing a red jersey #34, for the division of the
land, which points to the Israeli-Palestinian land for peace process.
Red is for suffering. Florida has been associated with the Palestinians
Launch was at 7:38/04 PM EDT (2338/04 GMT), where
38 is for dying in the wilderness, and 4 is for weakness. Orbiter
Atlantis, which was launched, is OV-104.

February 26 (Day 57,
Zebulun): NASA's STS 117 Space Shuttle
was damaged by a hailstorm at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. A late
afternoon thunderstorm with wind gusts of 62 mph rolled over the Launch
Pad about 4:45 PM EST. The hail left pock marks on the insulation
of the External Tank, which forced NASA to postpone the launch that was
scheduled for the ides of March at 6:44 AM. Subsequent review by
NASA led to the decision the next day to rollback the Shuttle to the Vehicle
Assembly Building to make repairs before launch, which will be scheduled
for later in April.
Hail was the seventh Plague.
This corresponds to the meaning of 2007,
for Categorical Punishment. The curse of the hail struck on February
26, for Political Babylon. The original plague
in Egypt also symbolized the Judgment of Political Babylon because the
hail represented the breakdown of Marriage Culture from the frigid female.
The hail struck NASA on Day 57, for Zebulun, which corresponds to Florida.
A weather elephant was crossing over Cape Canaveral at the time, and the
image of a snake head was striking Houston, Texas, the home of Shuttle
Mission Control. An elephant symbolizes a demon Commander, such as
Baal, and a snake symbolizes Satan.
The STS-117 Mission patch portrays a bottle, which
resembles the Shuttle External Tank. The stars and stripes garland
around the top of the patch symbolize the hail damage to the External Tank.
Red symbolizes suffering. The first launch attempt had been scheduled
for 6:44 AM, where 44 is for suffering. At the bottom of the patch
is the symbol of two horns piercing a ring and ending in pentagrams.
This is the symbol of the power (horns) of the Prostitute of Babylon, who
breaks the marriage covenant in honor of Baal, the giant, as symbolized
by the pentagram. The number, 117, stands for the witness of lawlessness.
