Koenig has this exactly right:

Hugo Chavez, Venezuelan president and leftie fav here in the U.S., cursed Israel on June 4, 2010. Almost a year later, on June 10, 2011, Chavez had surgery to remove an baseball-sized abscessed tumor from his pelvic region.

We are all (or should be by now) familiar with 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.

From June 2011 forward, we begin to hear more and more news reports of Chavez's battle with cancer. Here is a timeline of the treatments and surgeries compiled by the Denver Post.

A companion verse to Genesis 12:3 is Zechariah 12:3, easy to remember for being the same chapter number and the same verse number. But what I find fascinating about this verse in this instance is how LITERAL it is. Many Christians tend to place almost every Bible verse in a symbolic context without realizing that God is often far more literal than we are willing to believe. Many Bible verses are multi-level; they are both literal and symbolic. Look at the wording of Zechariah 12:3

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. (emphasis mine)

If multiple surgeries isn't being literally "cut in pieces," then what is? Chavez burdened himself with Jerusalem and he did so by cursing Israel for the sake of the Palestinians. The passion, and thus the resulting cursing, of most anti-Semites is the division of Jerusalem. Koenig shows us in the above screenshot that this is clearly what Chavez did.

Of equal importance to recognize is the timing of Chavez's death. The Holy God of Israel could have required Chavez's life of him at any time, but it came on March 5, 2013. One of the most important news stories of the day was this one: OBAMA WILL VISIT ISRAEL EVEN IF NO COALITION FORMED.

Just a few days ago it appeared that a caveat had appeared that Obama would not go if there was no government in place. I wrote about it here.

The most troubling sentence in this article is this one: The official said this was because Obama's intended audience during his upcoming trip is the Israeli public, not the government.

This "official" is telling us that Obama isn't interest in talking with the Israeli government; instead, he is making it his business to go directly to the Israeli people with his message. Obama is discounting the Israeli government -- that's why it doesn't matter to him if there is a government in place or not, they don't really matter. Oh, but wait! Weren't we originally told that Obama was going to Israel "to listen"?


Now we know that Obama's "intended audience" is the Israeli public. One doesn't go "listen" to an "intended audience," one goes to "speak" to an "intended audience."

Hours after this report that Obama WILL go to Israel whether Netanyahu has formed a coalition government or not because Obama is going straight to the people anyway, Hugo Chavez dies after being literally cut to pieces for cursing Israel for not giving land to the Palestinians. Remember, unlike Obama, Chavez didn't actually go to Jerusalem and insist.

What may be of additional interest are these news stories that took place yesterday. The first went completely under the radar because it didn't affect earth, but a massive CME was ejected from the sun yesterday. Suspicious Observers, in his daily brief today, noted that this CME left the sun at well over "a thousand kilometers per second," and had it hit earth it would have hit "at over 900 kilometers per second." He went on to note that "we just don't see things like this at our planet but every once in a great while, and while no one can definitively say what would have happened if it had hit earth, it's possible that this could have been 'it'." As usual, I've linked to S0 in the sidebar so you can see what he is talking about.

Another news story: an unusual uptick in eqs near the NMSZ, at Greers Ferry in Arkansas. Been there many times -- quite beautiful. There have been at least 60 eqs there since the beginning of 2013, troubling enough that scientists are going to be installing additional eq monitors. There are two fracking wells in the area, but, of course, while they are the usual suspects no one wants to say they are actually the culprits. Story here.

And one story that is literally on the radar is the massive snow storm that hit President Obama's stomping grounds, Chicago. Over a thousand flights were canceled, and according to the Chicago Tribune, "It's been 59 years since a March snowstorm generated as much or more snow in a single day." Story here.
