Longtime (or even casual) readers know that I only occasionally keep in synch with the news cycle anymore. This post will be no exception.
Have the chances increased, over the weekend, for North Korea, Iran and/or Israel to kick off a global firestorm that will likely go nuclear at some point? Yes, but that’s only part of an even bigger picture.
In addition to that day being the 100th day of Obama’s presidency (something common to all of them since the inaugural was standardized to be the 20th of January and no inaugural falls in a leap year) it was also the 64th anniversary of Hitler’s suicide in the bunker, the 74th anniversary of a German law prohibiting Jews from flying the German flag, and also the date of the pagan-satanic festival of Walpurgis Nacht.
…April 30, 2009 also corresponds to 5th Iyar on the Hebrew calendar, on which, in 1948, five Arab countries, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, declared war on the newly formed state of Israel (May 15, 1948).
But wait, there’s more. Bradley also observes that the letters behind the president spell out ‘AL ESIDENT UN ED STAT’, stating that they “are of tremendous significance” but she doesn’t say why.
Frustrated with that cryptic statement, I ran some anagrams on them.
My experience with anagrams suggests that if you look hard enough among all the myriad possibilities (particularly with preconceived ideas), you can find just about anything you want. That combination of seventeen letters produces 58,824 English anagrams. Constrain that vast field of possibility two-word anagrams and the pool shrinks to just twenty-eight possibilities, severely constraining any Rorschach effect.
Among them are some that an Obama opponent might have some fun with (e.g., ‘NATTIEST UNLEADEDS’), but which are perhaps more evocative of Al Gore’s expensive suits and nanny-state elitist environmental policy aspirations than BHO’s takeover of General Motors. Even though they could be shoe-horned to fit, they seem less-than-weighty from a Biblical-prophetic perspective — hardly up (or down?) to the evil stature of the antichrist of Revelation, apocalypse, Armageddon and Final Judgment.
Others, however, made my hair curl. Among them:
SULTANATE DESTINED (i.e., BHO as the midwife for the return of the Caliphate)
ANTEDATES INSULTED (i.e., the old wisdom is maligned and derided as foolishness)
UNSADDLE INTESTATE (i.e., America is thrown off its high horse and left without estate)
SADDEST LIEUTENANT (i.e., Rahm Emanual‘s relentless betrayal of Israel seals his Judas-doom)
DATELESS UNTAINTED (i.e., God is Holy and beyond time — the same yesterday, today and tomorrow)
DATELINES UNSTATED (i.e., we cannot know the day or the hour — though we should know the season)
DESALINATE STUNTED (i.e., the arrested development of the American church is only getting worse; it is like salt that has lost its saltiness… It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
That’s seven (out of 28) that seem applicable. That’s a lot. I’ve anagrammed for fun for some time now and it’s unusual for that many to relate so closely to a subject and to one another. Draw your own conclusions.
Though Israel and South Korea would seem to have more to fear today than they did last Friday, all of this seems aimed at America, especially New York, aka Babylon, a theme on which this fascinating post expands at some length.
[UPDATE: Thinking of visiting the Big Apple next month? Hot tip: don't.]
If I get time, I’ll blog it later today or tomorrow. If not, it’s still worth a read — far more coherent and simultaneously eerie than many feverish prophetic posts I’ve run across. One tiny, tiny excerpt (after the stuff about the earthquake of unprecedented magnitude the author thinks may strike the New Madrid fault in Missouri in the next month or so, in effect splitting the country):
On the afternoon of 06-09-09, strong winds… “knocked down a tree on the White House’s North Lawn. The tree appeared to have been snapped off near its base…” It is difficult to “snap” a tree off at the base and leave the root system in the ground. Most trees that are felled by winds or storms (tornados or hurricanes) are usually uprooted. In fact, most journalists covering big storms that down trees like to show uprooted ones to show the power and strength of the storm…
‘Chop down the tree and lop off its branches, strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the beasts flee from under it and the birds from its branches. But leave the stump of its roots in the earth, bound with a band of iron and bronze, amid the tender grass of the field. Let him be wet with the dew of heaven. Let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth. Let his mind be changed from a man’s, and let a beast’s mind be given to him; and let seven periods of time pass over him. (Daniel 4:14-16)
UPDATE I: Sue Bradley writes, in an e-mail that in aluding to the letters behind OBH’s head in the painting she had been thinking about anagrams, specifically ‘UNTESTED IDLE, SATAN’, referring to Joe Biden’s comment/slip back in October to the effect that the president would be severely ‘tested’ within six months of taking office (i.e., by July 20th). Apparently I’m the first one to ‘get’ the anagram reference she intended.
UNTESTED; SATAN LIED
SATAN USED ENTITLED (the elite elected OBH)
SATAN DENUDES TITLE (the dark one got title to the earth in the garden; but he ruins it)
SATAN SEED UNTITLED (demonic forces don’t get to keep their title to the earth)
UNITED STATES; LADEN (shiver!!)
UNITED STATES; LA END (French? Or the big City of Angels?)
UNITED STATES A LEND (i.e., deep in debt)
America, on its day of its birth as a nation [in New York, in 1789] was dedicated to God at the corner of a plot of land known as Ground Zero. Ground Zero is the ‘mystery place’ of American history.’ It was right there at the corner of Ground Zero they all prayed. The terrorists had no idea they were touching the very place America was dedicated and where God’s favor and protection were prayed for, the very place linked to the warning of Washington that day, that would be lifted.
