Hurricane Katrina, the worst hurricane to ever hit the United States of America, according to  On August 25, 2005, it slammed into the southern shores of Florida,  just a few miles south of Fort Lauderdale as a Category 1.

After ripping through Florida for 6 hours, it crossed the Gulf of Mexico regaining strength  before making landfall again, on the Louisiana/Mississippi border on August 29th.  This monster storm continued on to New Orleans, LA; flooding out the city, leaving thousands homeless and killing many.  Damage estimates range from $96-$125 billion, with only $40-$66 billion being insured losses.

The death toll is still unknown today. The amount of confirmed deaths is being reported at  1,836 people in Louisiana alone, and over 700 are still unaccounted for and some sources say the death toll could be as high as 10,000!

This event lends the question, “How can something so horrific happen to a Christian nation?”  The answer can be summed up in five words…

The US messed with Israel.


The Gaza Strip and US involvement

“We don’t have prophets who can tell us exactly what are God’s ways, but when we see something so enormous as Katrina, I would say [President] Bush and [Secretary of State Condoleezza] Rice need to make an accounting of their actions, because something was done wrong by America in a big way. And here there are many obvious connections between the storm and the Gaza evacuation, which came right on top of each other. No one has permission to take away one inch of the land of Israel from the Jewish people,” said Rabbi Joseph Garlitzky, head of the international Chabad Lubavitch movement at Tel Aviv synagogue.



So what was the U.S.’s involvement?

According to an article, written by Aaron Klein at WorldNet Daily (WND), “One week before Katrina made landfall, Israel carried out the evacuation of 9,500 residents from Gush Katif and four Samaria communities. Residents were forced from their homes by Israeli troops, some dragged away kicking and screaming and placed on buses that took them from the area. The majority of former Katif residents are currently homeless while the Israeli government struggles to find permanent housing solutions.

The Gaza withdrawal was backed by the U.S. government. Some Middle East analysts and senior Israeli politicians entirely attributed the evacuation plan to pressure coming from the American establishment.”

The article at WND, went on to quote George W. Bush,

“I welcome the disengagement plan,” stated Bush immediately following the announcement of the Gaza evacuation. “These steps will mark real progress toward realizing the vision I set forth in June 2002 of two states living side by side in peace and security.”
It appears that our President made a poor decision, that impacted the entire nation.
A link to President Bush’s a sound byte; one of many speeches that supposedly promotes peace, by taking away the land rights of Israeli citizens.

What does God say about Israel–His Land

The Covenant

The land of modern Israel was given to Abraham, around 4000 years ago.  As recorded in Genesis 15:18, “On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying:  To you descendants I have given this land…”

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, states in an article posted on, that ” It is interesting to note that the Hebrew verb used in the Scriptures is natati, meaning “I have given” (past tense). This passage implies that God had already given the land to the Jews at some earlier time, though this is the first record of such a promise. Rabbinic commentators suggest, however, that God had set aside the land of Israel for His people already at the time of Creation.”

As for the people that divide His land and scatter His people?

Genesis 12:3  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Joel 3:2 speaks specifically to this offense. “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land.”

So this passage makes it very clear that God will keep His covenant that he made to Abraham, and war with anyone who messes with Israel.  Many have said that God has done just that to America.  Just a few websites that have come to this conclusion:

1.)  “Did God send Katrina as judgment for Gaza”





There are literally thousands of articles, blogs and YouTube videos; that associate the eviction of Israeli’s from the Gaza Strip, with the eviction of American’s from their homes, as retribution for our political leaders’ actions.


You may be thinking, this is old news.  Where’s the new evidence?

In my first blog, I stated that in the book, Temple at the Center of Time, “David Flynn suggests that an empire’s distance from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, seems to reflect the time that it “falls,” with respect to it’s aggressive behavior towards Israel.”  It is my opinion, that this can also be translated into judgment for messing with His land. “If Flynn’s theory about the past is true,” (and he uses many historical examples)  “than one can infer  that this phenomenon can (or will) be repeated in the future.”

The above mentioned blog shows how nations have “fallen,”  when they have removed people from the land promised to Abraham over 4000 years ago.  One prime example is Babylon.

(Now would be a really good time to go read my first blog.  It will give you the historical background of events in relation to Israel, and the method in which these distances are measured in a prophetic and physical way) Here’s the link:

The New Evidence

Date: August 25, 2005 = 20th of Av, 5765

5765- 28 (28 AD-Yeshua’s Sacrifice year, according to Gil Broussard, Michael Rood and several others)  = 5737

5737 = Our nautical mile reference point

5737 nautical miles = 6602.022 statute miles from Temple Mount in Jerusalem.


When you plug statute mile into the radius map from (method referenced in my first blog), you get this…

The line in the above picture reflects where the year, (converted to statute miles from the nautical mile reference point), intersects with the point where Katrina first made landfall, near Fort Lauderdale, FL on August 25, 2005.

So yet again,  time=distance, in relation to a nation and their aggressive behavior towards Israel, with certain judgment that follows.

Does this seemingly prophetic timeline, work out for all hurricanes and storms that happened after America messed with Israel’s foreign relations with surrounding Arab nations?

The answer is no.  It only appears to happen when the Israelis are physically separated from their inheritance– The Land.  But, judgment has been executed in the past, for negotiating peace treaties that attempt to divide the Land do of Israel.  This land is God’said land, woe to thenations that attempt to divide it.  (see:Joel 3:2)

Again, what does God say about this little strip of land, barely bigger than New Jersey?

God Gives the Land of Israel to Abraham

Genesis 12:1-6 Modern English Version (MEV)

12 Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country, your family, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.

I will make of you a great nation;
    I will bless you
and make your name great,
    so that you will be a blessing.
I will bless them who bless you
    and curse him who curses you,[a]
and in you all families of the earth
    will be blessed.”

So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Harran. Abram took Sarai his wife, Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had accumulated, and the people that they had acquired in Harran, and they set out for the land of Canaan. They came to the land of Canaan.

Then Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. The Canaanites were in the land at that time. The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” So he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.

Genesis 15:18 (MEV)

…“To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great Euphrates River— 19 the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaites, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”


God Promises Many Descendants (The Nation of Israel) and an Everlasting Covenant to Abraham


Genesis 15:4 (MEV)

……“Look up toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “So will your descendants be.”


Genesis 17:3-8 (MEV)

Abram fell on his face and God said to him, “As for Me, My covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations. No longer will your name be called Abram, but your name will be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. 7 I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. All the land of Canaan, where you now live as strangers, I will give to you and to your descendants for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”


Israel has an everlasting covenant with God, according to Genesis 17:7.  Anyone who messes with Israel will be cursed, as stated in Genesis 12:3.  Anyone who divides the land of Israel……Look out!!!  That judgment will not only be a curse, it will result in the division of your land.  Hurricane Katrina was a harbinger of more judgment to come to America for her abominations, love of sin and attempts of handing over God’s land to the Palestinians.  When, not if, America stabs Israel in the back, and forcibly makes it sign a “Peace Agreement” that results in the division of Israel’s land, God will send His judgment to America.  This will result in a literal division of American soil along the Montana to Florida Lineament, as I have laid out in my first blog.
These prophetic timelines (Time=Distance in relation to enemies of Israel) are historically accurate.  May this be a stark warning to America and other UN Nations, DO NOT DIVIDE ISRAEL!!!
As for the gentiles, my fellow believers in Yeshua (Jesus),  pray for the peace of Israel.

Psalm 122:6 (NLT)  Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.
