The Earl of Danielle

| thu, august 26, 2010 |

I present the following for prayerful consideration.

The current hurricane season seems to be telling a story. I do not believe that hurricanes are just chance systems, but rather each serves some form of purpose. Whether as judgment or simply global climate regulation, each hurricane has a reason for its existence. More and more, as I look up instead of down, I am convinced that chance, evolution, and luck, are just ways blind men attempt to explain away JEHOVAH and His divine order.

I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish... Isaiah 44:24,25

In brief, here are the names of the tropical systems so far and what they might seem to say. Again, these are for prayerful consideration, as I am in no way the final say. Further elaboration of each name is welcomed, as I am just barely scratching the surface, more or less a very simple explanation of the broad view that seems to be painting a clearer picture of what lies ahead on the horizon in the form of judgment upon the United States of America for her rampant unrepentant sin, continued derogation of morality, and blatant attempts to wage war with JEHOVAH over HIS (and Abraham's) Covenant Land of Israel and Jerusalem.

Alex, comes from the Greek word alexo meaning "to defend, help." Hurricane Alex hit on the border of Mexico and Texas. The border impact upon the U.S. seemed to be a warning, like the Baja earthquakes and the British Columbia earthquake, that JEHOVAH is aware of the move the US is making against His borders in Israel. JEHOVAH will defend and help Israel against those who attempt to strip Israel of her borders; of which in fact are not even Israel's to give away if she so wanted to.

Bonnie, which is a Scottish word meaning "pretty," which was derived from the French word bon "good," was made popular by the 1939 movie "Gone with the Wild." Bonnie came through the region of the Gulf oil spill, disrupting operations and setting back BP's target date of completion even further. Bonnie, as are all tropical systems in the Gulf, was once again a reminder of the ever-present danger during hurricane season and just how easy, as in Katrina, an area can become "Gone with the Wind." (see the connection of Hurricane Katrina with the evacuation of Gush Katif in 2005)

Colin is even more interesting. Colin is a male given name. Colin is usually pronounced /ˈkɒlɪn/ (realized as [ˈkɑlɪn] in the US), although General Colin Powell chooses to use /ˈkoʊlɪn/. Like many given names, it has multiple origins, including:
+ an Anglicized form of the Gaelic name "Cailean" or "Coileain", meaning "whelp", "cub", or "young pup";
+ a diminutive form of "Colle", a short French form of Nicholas (Greek), meaning "victorious people";
+ a development of the Norse name "Koli", meaning "dark", a Middle English surname given to those living on property whose ownership was disputed;
+ from the Latin name Columba, meaning "dove", which is also sometimes considered the source of "Cailean".

As I look at the different origins of the name Colin, I can't help but see the connection of a "people living on property whose ownership was disputed", something that the nations and leaders of the world have continued to use in connection to the Palestinians, and the land that the Palestinians (and the world) say that they are owed. It is safe to say that those who ignore history believe the Land of Israel is disputed land and that the Palestinians are living on property whose ownership is disputed.

I find it also intriguing that Colin comes from the Latin name Columba, meaning "dove", the symbol for peace.

Columba has 5 variant forms: Collie, Colly, Colombe, Columbia and Columbine.

One of Columba's variant forms is Columbia. Columbia is the poetic name for the Americas and the feminine personification for the United States of America. Taking a look at the "peace talks", it is the United States of America that is heading up the "peace/dove" process for a "people living on property whose ownership is disputed".

The Land is only disputed from a worldly perspective and not from the perspective of JEHOVAH. HE will forever honor the Covenant HE personally made with Abraham. As far a peace, peace will come to Jerusalem when JESUS CHRIST comes to rule and reign.

Colin was named shortly after the Arab League gave Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas the green light to resume "peace talks" with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. This was victory for the U.S. and seems to point further to hurricanes being a form of judgment connected with the resumption of "peace talks."

Continuing on, Danielle, which is currently in the Atlantic, is a feminine form of the name Daniel. Daniel is a Hebrew name meaning, "Jehovah is my judge." Many have heard of Daniel, often relating the story of him being in the lion's den. Daniel was held in captivity with his fellow Israelites in Babylon.

Danielle formed on the August 21, 2010, exactly one day after the U.S. State Department announcement that "direct talks" would resume on September 2, 2010. This system has presented a bit of a challenge for meteorologists, as they have noted several times that some of their computer models are not in agreement as to Danielle's path after the Bermuda Islands. Anywhere from Washington D.C., north is still in the realm of possibility. Danielle also presents an interesting introduction to the other named tropical system directly behind her, Earl.

Earl is a form of aristocratic title, which derives from Old English eorl "nobleman, warrior." In the five ranks of peer existing in the United Kingdom, in descending order, these are: duke, marquess, earl, viscount, and baron. Barons use the title ‘Lord' most often, though the ranks of marquess, earl and viscounts commonly use lord as well. Keeping with the Earl and "Lord" connection, it brings us back to the curious connection of Danielle.

If Daniel means "Jehovah is my judge," could Danielle be pointing to Earl being a form of judgment upon the United States of America? In the King James Version of the Bible, one very relevant, considering the current situation that the U.S. is placing herself in with regards to Israel and JEHOVAH'S judgment, Zechariah chapter 12, gives an excellent example of JEHOVAH as judge being titled "Lord."

The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. Zechariah 12:1-3

The judge aspect of JEHOVAH, or LORD, is reinforced by verse 9 of the same chapter.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I (JEHOVAH, LORD) will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:9

I can only wonder if Danielle is the pointing to the LORD, or Earl, and the divine judgment that could be connected to the United States of America attempting to divide Israel and Jerusalem.

As I have said time and time again, any time direct talks are held for the purpose of dividing Israel, disaster and disruption follow. We can at best pay close attention to our environment and warnings that the HOLY SPIRIT of JEHOVAH is giving in this late hour.

Only time will truly tell, but I will be watching.

God Bless, daniel
