Haiyan apparently is the strongest cyclone to make landfall at the peak of its strength in recorded world history. It first hit the Philippines on Thursday night/Friday morning, November 7th and 8th (5th of Kislev 5774) with 195 mph sustained winds. The 2nd most powerful storm to make landfall was Hurricane Camille with sustained winds of 190 mph hit directly the Mississippi Gulf coastline in 1969. The powerful leading edge of that storm extended all the way to Panama City, Florida since all cyclones in the northern hemisphere turn counterclockwise. In the Southern Hemisphere they spin clockwise. Yet, Camille's storm surge was so powerful that it wrecked utter devastation from where the eye hit in Mississippi all the way past Mobile Bay down the Florida panhandle past Panama City. Back in 1978 I went to visit someone in Destin, Florida, and the devastation from nine years earlier was still all over the place. We drove to Pensacola, and the closer we got to Pensacola, the more ghastly the devastation. In short, Katrina in 2005 may have done more damage because its eye hit New Orleans, but Camille was far more powerful a storm. Now a cyclone even more powerful than Camille has hit the Philippines, and the loss of life is devastating. Estimates now are that approximately 10,000 people are dead, and up to 800,000 people are still missing (which simply means that the death toll will likely go even higher). People are walking around in a daze after losing everything. It is the damage that would have happened if Camille had hit downtown New Orleans in 1969, as a weaker Hurr. Katrina did after the Evacuation from Gush Katif in 2005. This blog will not attempt to place fault for the immense tragedy that has just unfolded. It is an act of G-d, and we will leave it at that. The good people of the Philippines did NOT deserve the likes of this anymore than far more deserving nations (of a natural disaster of this magnitude) to have hit them. Yet, this is a horrific Act of G-d at the End of Days, and it needs a certain analysis as to what is going on. In the meantime, whatever help and assistance can be delivered to this Central Philippines disaster of Biblical proportions should obviously be given and offered.
As a prelude to saying anything else, I wish for readers to read the previous Mystical Paths post that was made months ago when the first set of 26 bloodthirsty murderous prisoner releases was offered up here
. Akiva of MPaths named the post originally. So that name sticks. Yet, for the purpose of review perhaps it should be renamed "The Four Cups of Wrath" or "The Grapes of Wrath".... Well that name is already in use. So let us stick with "The Four Cups of Wrath". The Grapes of Wrath might be appropriate too because of allusion to those events in Yishayahu 63 and in Yoel 4: 12-13 which are so so close in the near future. Keep in mind that the first cup of wrath was directed against Egypt since the Yud in HaShem's Name was manifest in Egypt in ancient times through the Ten Plagues. Even though each prisoner release includes 26 prisoners, a reference to the entire Name of Yud Key Vav Key, each cup of wrath is related to one of those letters. So less than two weeks ago we had 26 bloodthirsty savages release number 2 which would indicate that a Cup of Wrath with the Hey and the previous Yud in HaShem's Name would be manifest soon thereafter. Last Thursday night/ Friday morning, about one week after the 2nd prisoner release it occurred. Hurricane HaiYan made landfall. For modern spelling in Hebrew of all foreign words we defer to Sheldon Adelson's Yisrael HaYom newspaper because of his keen sense, from a semi-secular perspective, of right and wrong when it comes to right and wrong with regards to Israel and the rest of the world. He sponsored Newt Gingrich's most recent presidential run during which for the first time ever the world learned that the "Palestinians" are an invented people. No one in the Republican Primary campaign debated Gingrich on that fact. The only challenge to that was from Mitt Romney arguing that it would not help Netanyahu in Pieces negotiations with the invented people if the Palestinians themselves were reminded of that Truth. So in the Republican Primaries, Truth in deed as represented by Rick St. Iram and truth in word as represented by Newt Gingrich lost to Beauty and looking Presidential as represented by Mitt Romney, and Romney was doomed to failure. But Sheldon and Newt by that simple statement of the Truth earned themselves a Piece of Peace in Olam HaBa. So on issues of how to spell foreign words, this blog defers to Sheldon Adelson. Looking at Yisrael HaYom today, I see that HaiYan should be spelled Hey
Aleph Nun sofit. The Hey and the Yud are there for all to see. So in this cyclone we see the manifestation of the first two letters in HaShem's Name with primacy given to the Hey in His Name. In addition to this, remember during the Exodus from Egypt, the Yud was the Finger of G-d in Egypt, but the Hey was the five times multiplier effect at the Reeds Sea (The Yam Suf). So while the Yud in this particular case has been manifest in Egypt right after the first 26 bloodthirsty savages release, the Hey and the preceding Yud has been manifest at the Sea in this most recent devastating cyclone.
For those who are wondering about when does Edom itself get whacked, the answer should be obvious. Previously on multiple occasions this blog has pointed out that
1. Mashiach Ben Yosef is manifest by the 3rd cup of wine at the Pesach Seder, the Vav in HaShem's Name and
2. Mashiach Ben Yosef will destroy Edom's supremacy in the world.
So look for big things to happen before and immediately after the 3rd scheduled prisoner release. As the Vav is being attached to the Yud and the Hey in HaShem's Name, look for a swipe against wicked Edom in the world in close association with the 3rd release of 26 murderers scheduled for 2 months from now. As the Vav is being added to His Name, look at the Yahoo (Yud Hey Vav) in the Prime Minister's Office to see if he continues to remain a changed man.
