"Sundowner" winds flamed fires in Santa Barbara, while the Pope arrived in the Middle East. Time and text for this Psalm follows, with full details below.
1The god of gods, Yahvah, has spoken and called the land from the rising of the sun to its going down.
2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, god has shined.
3Our god will come, and will not keep silent; a fire will consume before him, and it will flame around him greatly.
4He will call to the skies from above and to the land, that he may judge his people.
5Gather to him, his saints, those who have made a contract with him by sacrifice.
6And the skies will declare his righteousness; for god himself is judge.
7Hear, my people, and I will speak to you; Israel, I will testify to you; I am god, even your god.
8I did not reprimand you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings; they are continually before me.
9I will take no bulls out of your house, nor he-goats out of your folds.
10For all the animals of the forest are mine, and the cattle and the oxen on the hills.
11I know all the birds of the air; and the wild animals of the desert are mine.
12If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is mine and its fullness.
13I do not eat the flesh of bulls, nor do I drink the blood of goats.
14Offer to god the sacrifice of thanksgiving; and fulfill your vows to the most high.
15Call on me in the day of trouble; I will strengthen you, and you will glorify me.
16But to the sinner, god says, How have you followed the books of my law? You have observed my contract lightly,
17seeing that you hate my instruction and cast my words behind you.
18When you saw a thief, you joined with him, and you have been a partaker with adulterers.
19You have given your mouth to evil and your tongue speaks deceit.
20You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother's son.
21All of these things you have done, and I kept silent; you thought that I was wicked like you; but I will reprimand you, and correct these sins before your eyes.
22Now understand this, you who forget god, lest you be crushed and there not be anyone to deliver.
23Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me; and to him, I will show the way of the salvation of our god.
Fires in the Santa Barbara area had been burning since Tuesday. This was the national day of prayer in the United States, an event which was shunned by President Obama. That day fires broke out in the Santa Barbara region north of Los Angeles.
This was a nearly an exact repeat of President Bush's UN Speech where he also butchered what it means to be a Christian nation. In Bush's case fires broke out later in the afternoon, in essentially the same place as the fires on the National Day of Prayer.
The Santa Barbara region, especially along the hills up with a view and away from the water, is a preferred place for the wealthy and elite of Los Angeles to live.
On Friday, May 8, 2009, the date indicated here, the Santa Barbara region was subjected to what are called "sun-downer" winds. High velocity winds that can fan the wildfires of the region. Sun-down is specifically called out in verse 1.
The fires themselves are called out specifically in verse 3.
The primary economic activity of southern California is media and related industries. The city name, Los Angeles, means "The Messengers" and their call from God himself is to be messengers.
Missing the call to speak rightly is called out specifically in verses 19 and 20.
The common Hollywood reversal of God, where his angels are turned evil, is called out in verse 21.
By Saturday, May 9, when the prophetic interval was over, a dramatic change in the weather caused authorities to lift the evacuation order. Over 13 square miles had been burned, 30,000 people evacuated and 80 homes burned.
There was another major round of storms across the middle of the United States. Power was out in parts of Kansas, Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri. 5 deaths were reported.
This date also saw Pope Benedict arrive in Jordan for the start of an 8 day tour. His trip likely provides fulfillment for further Psalms
