This prophetic event fulfilled with the shooting at Virginia Tech on Monday, April 16, 2007.
Most of the prophetic stories on this Exodus plagues series are set to fulfill before the lunch hour on the east coast of the United States. This day was no different, with the final shooting about 2 hours ahead of theoretical, though the campus remained closed for another day.
There were a considerable number of sub themes following related stories in the section that applies to this date. This date had one of the longest set of scriptures for any date in the entire prophetic Exodus Plagues series.
The exact timing and a complete list of associated scriptures are at the bottom of this article.
The opening Bible text for this prophetic date is a narrative where Moses is told the Egyptians will not let the people go except by force.1 This narrative is adding to the general understanding that the United States is prophetic end-times Egypt.
The headline fulfillment at Virginia Tech" count=" instead of say somewhere else on the planet, is working to establish the United States as the location where the rest of the end-times Exodus Plagues will happen.
The text of the Book of Exodus is now starting to address the issue of plagues, and their purpose, and though this date’s main prophetic stories do not derive directly from a plague narrative, the text is describing how plagues will happen in Egypt. This shooting event behaves as a plague, especially to those involved.
God himself is compelling these events by force and will continue to do so until all the prophetic end-times plagues have completely fulfilled.
The underlying Bible story is the encounter with the the Lord at the Inn.2 In this encounter Zipporah, who apparently had not circumcised her sons, was forced to do so.
The first feature of the fulfillment to notice is the venue. Most of the live TV feeds from this event were broadcast out of a conference center known as the Inn at Virginia Tech. This was not even a student union building, common to many campuses, but a large public gathering place. That special place name on the Virginia Tech campus is a prophetic match to the venue from the Exodus story.
The Inn at Virginia Tech is prophetically named to match the Inn where Zipporah met Moses as he was returning to Egypt.
There were 2 victims at the dorm room and 30 more victims in the Norris Hall classroom building. Counting Cho there were 33 dead that day.
Note that 30 victims in a group in the classroom building form a special group. They are like a class of some sort.
These 30 have a strange match to the 30 days in a month. 30 is the number of silver coins used to betray, or reveal, Jesus. It is one of the most difficult to spot prophetic ratios, but it is one of the most useful.
Using the others as a multiplication, the 3 * 30 = 90 days, or 3 months.
This date is 3 months of 30 days since the previous prophetic date and it is 3 months of 30 days until the next prophetic date.
The death toll, especially as the bodies were grouped, is reflecting the prophetic timing.
The shooter, Cho, was living in the United States as a permanent resident alien. He had moved to the United States at age 8 from South Korea with his family.
Other prophetic stories have established Ban Ki-moon, also from South Korea, as the prophetic Moses. The linkage of Cho to Korea links him to the current most famous Korean, and the prophetic Moses currently running the United Nations.
Cho was in effect a son of Moses. This is in part why Korea called a national day of fasting after the shooting. The fear was this event would look badly to Korea in general.
The shooter was a son of Moses, and the linkage is established through their nationality, both Korean.
The original Exodus story for this date is about the circumcision of Moses’ son. Cutting off the head or the top, leading part or even figuratively first born which is what will come later in the plagues.
The reports indicated that Cho shot his own face off when he killed himself at the end of the shooting. This is a match, it is a type of circumcision.
Hard to imagine the mess that the authorities found when they entered the building that morning. They originally had trouble identifying the shooter because his face was unrecognizable. It certainly wasn’t a pretty picture.
By shooting off his own face the shooter in effect circumcised himself, a match to the prophetic story.
Cho also had written "Ishmael Ax" on his arm and used the same term when signing the package he sent to NBC on the morning of the event.
Email reports suggested that the never-published 2 hours of video contained Islamic Terrorist rantings. Though the failure, at least so far, to publish this information suggest Islamic terrorism is not the root of the story.
The mysterious term was a suddenly popular search engine term as the public tried to figure out what Cho meant by its use. Of course the prophetic story involves an ax, a type of knife, and it helps explain what was going on.
Axes are used to cut off and that is what he was prophetically accomplishing that day.
Ishmael’s Ax was used to cut off, or circumcise. It was another variation on the Bible stories that applied that day.
The Exodus account makes clear that Zipporah used a flint knife.3 The word flint is an old and early word for gun. Guns were originally called flintlocks describing their firing mechanism.
Flint is also used in the Bible for starting fires" count=" which is how flintlock guns work. The spark from the flint ignites the power and shoots the bullet.
Use of a firearm is relatively common in school shootings, but shootings are not all that common on prophetic fulfillment dates. Political events, bombings, even planes into skyscrapers are on the charts and suggest a wide variety of fulfillment weaponry. This headline event alone involves a flint. No other future dates on this series use such a weapon.
Use of a gun, a modern form of a flintlock, is suggested by Zipporah’s use of a flint.
Cho’s family, especially his family in Korea, that knew him when he was a young boy, said that he almost never talked. Many of his fellow students on campus also remarked how he was a particularly quiet individual.
The same complaint has been leveled against Ban Ki-moon at the United Nations. In Mr. Ban’s case the complaint is about his lack of charisma in his public speeches. This may be some sort of prophetic national characteristic.
In the prophetic text for this date Moses complained that he was of poor speech,4 and this made Yahvah angry with Moses.5 God created the voice" count=" and apportions to each however he may choose. So, to say that someone is not equipped for something that has been ordained is to say God has made a mistake. Not so, he never makes mistakes.
When Cho finally did speak on his own video his voice wasn’t that bad. God did give him an ability to speak. You can watch some of his video on You Tube
Moses’ complaint about being slow of speech fulfilled in his prophetic son, the Virginia Tech shooter, a man thought to be slow of speech, but who in the end was not.
Moses was told to assemble the elders.6 By this the 12 tribal leaders are suggested. These tribal names and their patriarchal leaders were also mentioned by name at the very start of the Book of Exodus.
On Tuesday afternoon Virginia Tech held a convocation at Cassell Coliseum, Blacksburg, Virginia. This convocation marks the assembly of the elders caused by Moses. (Or if you will, Moses’ son.)
The guest of honor on stage that day was none other than George Bush, the President of the United States who had flown into town for this assembly. George, appears to be Pharoah, or king of Egypt, and his appearance at Virginia tech’s assembly plays in interesting ways to the underlying text for the day, the text talking about the king of Egypt who would not, ultimately, listen.
There was a procession of other speakers rounding out the 12.
There is a video of the convocation on the internet. You can watch it at the hokiesports.com website.
If you watch the video pay careful attention to the 4 representatives of world faiths that were part of the 12 and asked to speak to the audiance that day. Knowing what you know here, that the vent was ordained by God on a schedule and as a prelude to much worse things to come, review what each said. In particular only the Lutheran and the Jew could begin to explain what happened. None really understood.
Virginia Tech called an assembly of the elders where 12 elders assembled and spoke to a gathered crowd in the room and to a wider audience watching on live TV.
There was a candlelight vigil held on tuesdaythe main central lawns of the campus. The sight was amazing to see all the uplifted candles.
Curious about this event is the worshipful nature of at least some of the Virginia Tech community.
The worship is also mentioned in the underlying stories from the Book of Exodus.7
There is an underlying community of faith" count=" unknown to most leaders, unknown to the common public discourse, who will respond in worship.
There was a storm going on across the weekend ending on April 15, that dumped record amounts of rain across the North Eastern parts of the United States. These storms also included heavy winds which especially on Monday afternoon were responsible for knocking out TV transmissions from reporters who had flown into Blacksburg, Virginia to report on the event.
Across the Carolinas on Sunday, the day before the shooting, there had been tornado warnings. Even the early videos recorded during the shooting showed off snow fluries that were happening in the area.
Of course the weather was unimportant, right?
Snow is used as the adjective to describe one of the wonders that Moses will do for pharaoh.8 Even though the trees were starting to bud, the weather needed to be stormy and snowy in order to match the prophetic stories. This was seen in Virginia on the day of the shooting, it was also seen in more distant location up and down the eastern seaboard, especially north of New York City.
New York City itself was having heavy rains, with roads blocked north of the city up into Westchester County. Standing water and record floods were being seen all across the New York City region.
Snow was used to describe the prophetic story in the Book of Exodus, and snow was seen on the Virginia Tech campus, yet another prophetic match.
The generation that was not yet in their 20th year at the time when Moses returned to Egypt was the generation who would live to see the crossing of the Jordan river 40 years later. Nearly all the others would have to much Egypt in their make up and would die in the wilderness for their lack of faith.
This time around the timing details are a little different and there is a community of faith that is slightly broader than the numbers in Moses’ day, so it may not be simply 2 of the elders who survive this time in history. BUT...
The Virginia Tech massacre impacted the students of the campus in the same way as the same age group was most impacted by Moses’ actions when he brought the Isralites out of Egypt. This age group matches the key age group in Moses’ day.
There is a prophetic match between the students of Virginia Tech and the same age group in Moses’ day.
On April 18, 2007, UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon visited Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican. While there he invited the Pope to visit the United Nations in New York City.
That trip, April 15 - 20, 2008, would fulfill another plague related headline, a visit to Pharaoh. It would happen 1 year, to the day, from when Ban Ki-Moon visited the Vatican.
This particular meeting between Ban Ki-Moon and Benedict XVI fulfills the component of the story of where Aaron meets Moses.
In this case prophetic Moses, Ban Ki-Moon, visited at Aaron’s house, but this was a convenience as Ban Ki-Moon was making deliberate attempts to visit key places around the globe and considered his visit to the Vatican as one of those stops.
This headline cluster has more matches than most other headlines known to the Bible Time system, aside from perhaps 911. The amount of text that applied to this date is larger than nearly all other Exodus related plagues. The stories and future related headlines will simply start clocking off, some with only a few sentences of Bible text each.
Events like this cause many different types of responses in the people who watch. At one level is the tragedy and the mechanics of it. As the details become available a certain part of the audience goes into fact finding mode, as if knowing more about the event makes the event any better.
Another group realizes that God let this happen, and that he is purposeful. A very few number of people of faith are ever given the microphone and allowed to talk through this angle. For if God is purposeful, then this sort of event demonstrates that He is not pleased with something in the community. The correct response here is repentance, and that is not seen on secular media channels, at least not in this generation. For people in this group the response must be private.
A third group tends to respond with defiance. One of the speeches near the end of the Convocation ended with a crowd pleasing chorus of "We are Hokies". Another assembly, this one on one of the main campus lawns, ended with the school fight songs. This response appeals to many, but ultimately it fights against those things that God has clearly ordained for the community. This is the attitude of Pharaoh, always in defiance of the things God has ordained. I doubt this attitude will cease until all the plagues have ended.
19And I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go, except by force.
20And I will stretch out my hand and strike the Egyptians with all kinds of wonders which I will do among them; and after that pharaoh will let you go.
21And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and it will come to pass that, when you go, you will not go empty-handed;
22but every woman will borrow of her neighbor and of her that stays in her house, jewels of silver and jewels of gold and clothes; and you will put them on your sons, and on your daughters; and you will despoil the Egyptians.
1And Moses answered and said, But, look, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice; for they will say, Yahvah has not appeared to you.
2And Yahvah said to him, What is that in your hand? He said, A staff.
3And Yahvah said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.
4And Yahvah said to Moses, Put forth your hand and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand and caught it, and it became a staff in his hand;
5This is done that they may believe that Yahvah, god of their fathers, the god of Abraham, the god of Isaac, and the god of Jacob, has appeared to you.
6And Yahvah said furthermore to him, Now put your hand into your chest. And he put his hand into his chest; and when he took it out, look, his hand was leprous, as white as snow.
7Then Yahvah said to him, Put your hand back into your chest again. And he put his hand back into his chest; and when he took it out of his chest, look, it was clean like his other flesh.
8And if they will not believe you, nor listen to the voice of the 1st sign, they will believe the voice of the latter sign.
9And if they also will not believe these 2 signs, nor listen to your voice, you will take some of the water of the river and pour it on the dry land; and the water which you take from the river will become blood on the dry land.
10And Moses said to Yahvah, I beg you, my master, I am not eloquent, not previously nor since you spoke to your servant; for I am a stutterer and slow of speech.
11Yahvah said to him, Who has made man's mouth? Who makes the mute, or the deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Is it not I, Yahvah?
12Now go and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you will speak.
13And Moses said to him, My master, I beg you, send by the hand of whomever you will send.
14And the anger of Yahvah kindled against Moses, and he said to him, Look, Aaron, your brother, the Levite. I know that he is a good speaker, and also, look, he will come out to meet you, and when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart.
15And you will speak to him and put my words in his mouth; and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and will teach you what you will do.
16And he will be your spokesman to the people; and he will be an interpreter for you, and you will be to him instead of god.
17And you will take this staff in your hand, with which you will do signs.
18And Moses returned, and went to Jethro his father-in-law, and said to him, Let me go and return to my brothers who are in Egypt and see whether they are still alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.
19And Yahvah said to Moses in Midian, Go, return to Egypt; for all the men who sought your life are dead.
20And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them on a donkey, and started on his way back to Egypt; and he took the staff of god in his hand.
21And Yahvah said to Moses, When you return to Egypt, see that you perform all the wonders before pharaoh which I have performed by your hand, but I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go.
22And you will say to pharaoh, Yahvah says, Israel is my firstborn son;
23and I say to you, Let my son go, that he may serve me; and if you refuse to let him go, look, I will slay your firstborn son.
24And it came to pass when Moses was on his way to the inn that Yahvah met him and sought to kill him.
25Then Zipporah took a flint and cut off the foreskin of her son, and she fell down at the feet of Yahvah and said, I have a bloody husband.
26So Yahvah let him go. Then she said, You are a bloody husband, because of the circumcision.
27And Yahvah said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses. And he went and met him in the mountain of god, Horeb, and kissed him.
28And Moses told Aaron all the words of Yahvah, who had sent him, and all the signs which he had commanded him to perform.
29Then Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the sons of Israel;
30and Aaron spoke all the words which Yahvah had said to Moses, and performed the signs in the presence of the people.
31And the people believed; and when they heard that Yahvah had remembered the sons of Israel, and that he had seen their affliction, then they knelt down and worshiped before Yahvah.
1And afterward Moses and Aaron went into the house and told pharaoh, Yahvah, god of Israel, says, Let my people go that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.
2And pharaoh said, Who is Yahvah, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I do not know Yahvah, nor will I let Israel go.
3And they said, Yahvah, god of the Hebrews, has appeared to us; now let us go 3 days' journey into the wilderness that we may sacrifice to Yahvah our god; lest he fall on us with the sword or with pestilence.
