This date marks the opening reference to the plague on Firstborn. The date is approximate because of the word "about" in the text. The plague is expected to last around a year because of other stories. This date expects an opening headline, even if mild.
Note: The "firstborn" promises to Abraham follow the genealogy given in Genesis and land on the tribe of Manasseh, the modern United States, with a capital near Manassas, Virginia. Those firstborn promises land nowhere else.
Note: This is not the last reference to this firstborn plague, and there may very well be a double fulfillment, with additional headlines later. "Pay her back double..." is the paraphrase quote from Revelation that would support that idea that there is a second, future, end-times replay of the Plague on Firstborn.
Note: The text of this passage is written in future tense, it indicates what will happen, not what will be expected in the present.
This date also has an attendant Psalm 106.
Note that the attendant Psalm contains much text dealing with Moses and the Red Sea.
4And Moses said, Yahvah says, About midnight I will go forth into the middle of Egypt;
5and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of pharaoh who sits on his throne even to the firstborn of the female servant who sits behind the mill; and all the firstborn of the animals.
6And there will be a great wailing throughout all the land of Egypt, there has never been any like it, nor will there be any like it any longer.
7But of the sons of Israel no one will be harmed, not even a dog will bark against man or animals; that you may know that Yahvah distinguishes between the Egyptians and Israel.
8And all your servants will come down to me and bow themselves down to me saying, Get out, both you and all the people that are with you; and after that I will go out. And Moses departed from the presence of pharaoh in a great anger.
9And Yahvah said to Moses, Pharaoh will not listen to you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
10And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before pharaoh; but Yahvah hardened pharaoh's heart so that he would not let the sons of Israel go out of his land.
The ship used as the first drilling platform was present at the largest off-shore well disaster ever, the Piper Alpha destruction on July 6, 1988.
On November 9, 2009, drilling was suspended after Hurricane Ida damaged the platform so severely that it needed to be replaced.
On February 6, 2010, drilling began again using the Deep Water Horizon. BP's plans were so messed up that a 51 day planned drill time could not be completed as scheduled and still meeting a March 8, 2010 committed date for its next well.
The Macondo well finally failed catastrophically on April 21, 2010.
Note the attendant Psalm 106 contains considerable text that applies to the Deep Water Horizon destruction and aftermath. As of this writing, June 18, 2010, there is considerable additional destruction pending.
On October 9, 2009, NASA bombed the moon.
In United States history this was when the slaves were released, a fulfillment of this plague in history. This time around slaves are trapped in the fractional slavery system run by bankers, and are not particularly trapped by race. The entire US Civil war period replays inside the week ahead of this date so it cannot resemble anything like the US Civil War in history just because of the speed of the replay.
Note: I’ve also adjusted the date based on the 30 day/month system being 1 day, and looking for the day most likely to be midnight. This still feels late, and fulfillment could happen up to a few days earlier still. 1863 replays about October 3, 2009, for US history buffs following this date.
Note: On the following report I’ve also trimmed the time of day to Midnight in Jerusalem, instead of the normal 6:00 PM TMMT. There is no pattern for this, but it is an educated hunch. Will return this to the normal 6:00 PM time (11:39 on the US East Coast) if headlines show the hunch wrong.
The watch for a fulfillment should begin soon after the previous prophetic date on October 2, 2009.
