Links: | Houston Chronicle | CNN |July 23 (Day 205, Grace, Giant): Hurricane Dolly made landfall just north of Port Isabel, Texas with winds of about 85 knots. The eye reached South Padre Island about 12:00 PM CDT (1700 GMT). Later in the day the image of the hurricane appeared as a lion on the infrared satellite picture. The lion symbolized Satan as a roaring lion seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).
The name Isabel is the same as Jezebel, the Prostitute of Babylon. A hurricane symbolizes rejection of the Grace message of the Pastor like the rebellious female who rejects the authority of her Right Man. It was July 23, for an uptrend in history, and Day 205, for a giant, such as Baal, the enemy of Israel, children, and Marriage. Early today, the Mississippi River south of New Orleans was closed due to an oil spill from a tanker colliding with a giant barge.
A hurricane making landfall also symbolizes the invasion of an army, like the Army of the Lord at the Second Advent when the Lord will return as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah to destroy the enemies of Israel. The nations who reject the Abrahamic Covenant are the enemies of Israel, regardless of their lip service.
