26 Psalms 97
1Yahvah reigns; let the land rejoice; let the multitude of islands be glad.
2Clouds and darkness are around him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
3Fire goes before him, and burns up his enemies all around.
4His lightnings enlightened the world; the land saw, and trembled.
5The hills melted like wax at the presence of Yahvah, at the presence of the sovereign of the whole land.
6The skies declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
7Confounded are all those who serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols; worship him, all his angels.
8Zion heard and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of your judgments, Yahvah.
9For you, Yahvah, are high above all the land; you are exalted far above all gods.
10You who love Yahvah, hate evil; he preserves the souls of his saints; he delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.
11Light shone for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
12Rejoice in Yahvah, you righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
Yet Another Speech
Obama picked Federal Hall,
an historic venue, to give a verbal tongue lashing to
Wall Street's elite. The building was the original location of the US
Federal government. It was after the first meetings there that the original
members of Congress first dedicated the country. President Washington was
sworn in, and the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution.
The original building was replaced in the early 1800s and became a
customs house and then later a branch of the US treasury, with its basement
vaults used to store silver and gold. By 1939 it was turned into a museum.
It is also located on the southern end of Manhattan Island, 4 blocks from
Ground Zero. The building was closed in 2004 for repairs to its foundations
caused by the collapse of the Twin Towers.
The damage to the foundations of the building caused by the collapse of the
towers is highly symbolic. The financial system troubles, which was the general
subject of Obama's speech, were caused by Federal Reserve responses to 911 itself.
In flooding the market with low percentage rate funds, the housing bubble was
formed. When the bubble could no longer be sustained, the financial markets
began to collapse, following the dates given by the Exodus Plagues.
Obama invited heads of various Wall Street firms as well as various
politicians including Barney Frank and Mayor Bloomberg. It was a well attended
who's who of US fiat money system.
of the attitude of the people in attendance indicated they
could hardly wait for the speech to end. There was only 1 round of applause.
The speech kept to script and to schedule.
Obama proposed more oversight by the Federal Reserve Bank, which is a private
share corporation owned by the very firms represented in the room. It made
about as much sense as calling for a fox to guard a hen house. He also implicitly granted
that the US Federal government will continue to bail out these guys if they
blow another bubble.
The Psalm opens with a reminder that God reigns, a fact some times forgotten
when men like Obama give speeches. Verse 1 concludes with a reference to
many people in an island, which is a match to Manhattan Island, the venue for
Verse 2 mentions clouds and darkness, and the foundation of God's throne.
The building where Obama chose to give this speech received a cracked foundation
after the events of 911. At one time the building housed US Treasury owned
gold and silver, but since the introduction of fiat currency and the Federal
Reserve after 1913,
that sure foundation to the financial system has been removed.
The building, along with the rest of wall street,
was darkened in the clouds of dust stirred up when the towers collapsed.
This is a negative example of how men rule, in contrast to how God rules,
and also a match from this Psalm to the venue.
Verse 3 is also a reference back to the fires at this location at 911, another
Verse 4 explains in past tense how the land saw and trembled at the events at
this location. This is also pointing back at 911, another match. This may
also be pointing at the establishment of the US Government itself, something
that has been seriously usurped by the Federal Reserve and by Obama and his team.
Verse 5 uses the illustration of melting like wax, which is another way to
describe how the towers collapsed. Fire at the top, and then a meltdown.
Verse 6 includes a reference to the skies, which is where the 911 attack
came from, another match.
Verse 7 deals with the confounding of those who serve images. The judgement
that the United States received at God's hands in 911 is usually missed.
3000 were killed when prophetic Samson pushed over 2 columns. Most
pundits say these people were innocents, instead of using Samson's scriptural
explanation and saying they had opposed
God and his plans.
The banking system, headed by people in the room for
Obama's speech, was aspect of American life that was most directly targeted
by that judgement. Their confounded understanding of 911 is thus another
match to this Psalm and to the venue for this speech.
Verse 8 contains a reference to Judah, what is now Russia. It was a Pravda
article in July of 2001 that first publicly predicted the September attack on
the New York City financial system. Russia is in the least leveraged financial
state of any major country and can easily survive another round of collapse.
Chances are good that Russia was the source of, or party to, the original attack.
Verse 10 deals with those preserved from the hands of the wicked. The term
wicked has been applied to Obama by previous Psalms. Those in the room
for this speech need to ask if they are preserved from this man's hands, or not.
The question is a match, though it leaves more questions.
Verse 11 talks about lights that shine. One of the ways 911 has been
memorialized is through lights shining into the sky. Yet another match.
Verse 12 concludes on the topic of remembering, which is the general
structure of how this Psalm fulfilled in headlines this date.
The US Constitution set gold and silver as the foundation of the US economy.
The Federal Reserve was unconstitutional. It provided a means for the
bankers of New York to take control of much of the economy, while at the same
time undermining the foundation of the government itself. Federal Hall's
foundations, devoid of gold since the 1920s, were cracked at 911.
There is some sense in this that the rest of the building risks collapse at
the next round of disasters.
This Psalm is also the Levi Seal Date Psalm. Fulfillment events for this
Psalm are usually related to themes that matter to the tribe of Levi.
In this case the subject of the Obama speech was the banking industry
of the United States. Banking, or more specifically tithe or interest
collecting, is the business of the Levites in scripture. This is why
the fulfillment headline was on this subject.
The Swiss have a traditional banking industry as a form of Levitical
responsibility. The banking industry in the USA is a reflection of this
deposit in the Levitical tribes. It is probably the case that
Manhattan is some sort of localized match to Levi.
For historical note, Obama was golfing with the head of UBS, the largest
Swiss bank, when he vacationed in Martha's Vineyard a few weeks before.
UBS has been under IRS scrutiny for obeying Swiss bank secrecy laws.
The critical attendee was Robert Wolf, who sits on the board.
He is the only member of the board not from a
United States company. Indeed, UBS is from Switzerland, the modern
Confederation of the Helvetti, the lost tribe of Levi. His presence
confirms this as a Levi Seal event.
