Links: | AP | Baltimore Sun | Belmont Park | Post Positions |June 9 (Day 160, Sanctification): Rags to Riches won the 139th Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York to become the first filly to win the race in 102 years. The last filly to win the race was Tanya in 1905. Rags to Riches, ridden by John Velazquez, dueled Preakness champion, Curlin, in the stretch and won by a head after a somewhat slow pace for the 1 1/2-mile race. Winning time was 2:28.74, which was well behind Secretariat's track record of 2:24. No one wanted to take the lead in the beginning. They all held back to conserve energy, which worked to the advantage of Rags to Riches. They ran her race, and she beat them in the stretch. Rags to Riches ran from Post Position 7, which corresponds to the meaning of the year, 2007, for completion of a category.
A horse is a symbol of war. While a male horse is a symbol of war and a phallic reversionist, the female is only symbolic of war. The longer Belmont race track is not normally suited for fillies, since they usually lack the strength and endurance to compete with the males on equal turf. However, when males become weak in history, females may rise to the occasion. Such has been the case throughout history, including that of Israel, when women rose to the throne or fought in the army. A society that sends women into combat is degenerate.
The horse race merely symbolizes the truth of history. When the men are weakened by the Prostitute of Babylon, women rise to usurp authority and take over. The New York horse race demonstrated this truth of history as one female horse defeated 6 male horses, where 6 is the number for man.
Yesterday, the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff was replaced because the Democrats in Congress were expected to succumb to the power of the Prostitute of Babylon and use the opportunity to badger him for fighting the war in Iraq. The news media, however, were giving live coverage of Paris Hilton, who was being taken to court. Now Paris and Rags to Riches have something in common. Both were born in February. Paris was born February 17, 1981, where 17 is for lawlessness and 81 is for a grace counterattack, which is characteristic of Jezebel. The Noahic Flood began on the 17th day of the second month. It was the most severe Judgment in history. Rags to Riches was born on February 27, 2004. Both Paris and the horse were born under the Sun sign of Aquarius with a Stellium in Aquarius, which is even stronger. The Sun in Aquarius can be the sign of an evangelist or an antichrist.
And yesterday, NASA launched STS-117 from Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The launch came to be associated with a cicada and Johnny Cash, who was also born in February. He was born on February 26, 1932, Day 57, for Zebulun, which corresponds to Florida and Aquarius. He was also born under the Sun sign of Aquarius. The cicada symbolizes the Resurrection when saints receive their resurrection bodies. The name, Rags to Riches, is the ultimate symbol of Grace. It describes the Resurrection when saints trade their earthly garments for resurrection bodies and robes of Righteousness. The saints who have been faithful will receives riches of glory (eternal rewards) along with their resurrection bodies.
There will be a time when women are legitimately in the Army. They will be in the Army of the Lord at the Second Advent when both men and women saints will be known as Bride of Christ. However, the Lord will do all the killing at the Second Advent.
