The Shuttle Columbia Speaks

"Though thou mount on high as the eagle, and though thy nest be set among the stars, I will bring thee down from thence, saith Jehovah". - Obadiah 4

The numbers and names in the Columbia tragedy tell a story and give a warning.

Seventeen years after the Challenger explosion, the space shuttle Columbia, with seven astronauts aboard, broke up upon descent over central Texas, just sixteen minutes before it was due to land at Florida's Kennedy Space Center wrapping up a sixteen day scientific-research mission. This is the first loss of a space crew during landing or the ride back to orbit in forty-two years of human space flight. This marked the one hundred and thirteenth flight in the shuttle program and the twenty-eighth flight for Columbia, which is the oldest of the shuttle fleet. Witnesses said they heard a "big bang" at approximately 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time followed by other bangs. It was at an altitude of 200,700 feet at the time, traveling at 12,500 mph at the time. The impact point was Palestine, Texas, southwest of Waco. Columbia was carrying the first Israeli astronaut, Ilan Ramon, and six Americans.

America is being warned by God over its rebellion, imperialism, persecution of the saints, the State of Palestine issue, and its destruction. Since God works all things after the council of His will it can be no accident that the doomed shuttle was named Columbia. The U.S. was called Columbia by the original 13 colonies and afterwards. Freedom, a statue of Columbia, the female symbol of the U.S. sits on top of the dome of the capitol in Washington D.C. She is dressed in flowing robes and standing on a globe. She is the harlot who rides on the back of the beast of this world. {Rev.17:3}... and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast... having seven heads and ten horns. Columbia's break up and burn at the end of her ride symbolizes the break up and burning of the U.S. by the beast at the end of her ride. (Rev.17:16) And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her utterly with fire. This will be the end of the ride of Freedom for the U.S. The Columbia's landing next to Waco can be no accident either. The Waco harlot was besieged and burned by a beast also. The actual end of the ride was and will be in Palestine, where another harlot will be besieged by the world beast. Palestine is in Texas, whose symbol is the lone star just like Israel. Texas is from the Indian name " Tejas", meaning friends or allies. There was an Israelite on board the shuttle with the Americans. There were also two Christians aboard who were saved and the rest burned. Apostate U.S. and apostate Israel are harlot allies who will meet their end together at the hands of the world beast but a holy remnant will be saved from both.

There were seventeen years between Challengers cursed take off and Columbia's cursed landing. The U.S. has a seventeen year war cycle. We have been in a war almost every seventeenth year from the founding of the original thirteen states. Seventeen identifies the timing of the fall of the U.S. in its last war at the end of its ride. According to the law of first mention, seventeen is the number first mentioned in the Bible when the flood begins after seven days. (Gen.7:10) And it came to pass after the seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. (11) In the six hundredth year (After 6000 years) of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. According to this type the flood will happen after the seven day tribulation. We are told that after the tribulation the sun, moon, and stars will be darkened. (Mt.24:29) But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. This is the result of a nuclear World War that is symbolized by the flood. The U.S. Babylonish harlot falls at the beginning of this flood when the sun, moon, and stars are darkened in a world wide nuclear exchange. (Isa.13:1) The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see. (10) For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light; the sun shall be darkened in its going forth, and the moon shall not cause its light to shine. (11) And I will punish the world for [their] Evil... (19) And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans' pride, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. After the tribulation and the fall of the great eagle called Babylon (U.S.- Eze.17:3,4,12), our Mathew text continues to tell us that the Lord comes for His saints. (Mt.24:30)... and they shall see the Son of man coming... (31) And he shall send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet (the last trump), and they shall gather together his elect.... The Lord with His saints will then make war with the beast that is making war on the U.S. and Israel.

This happens at the time when the U.N. beast armies of all nations including the U.S. are gathered together to enforce U.N. resolutions and divide Jerusalem for a new State of Palestine. The Palestinians have demanded half of Jerusalem as their capitol. (Zech.14:1) Behold, a day of Jehovah cometh, when thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. (2) For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. (3) Then shall Jehovah go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. When did the Lord fight in the day of battle? (2 Chr.20:15) and he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat: Thus saith Jehovah unto you, Fear not ye, neither be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's. The Lord fought and his method was to divide the enemy who came as one into three, north, east, and south in respect to Jerusalem. The enemy then killed off one another and spared Jerusalem. (22) And when they began to sing and to praise, Jehovah set liers-in-wait against the children of Ammon (north), Moab (east), and mount Seir (south), that were come against Judah; and they were smitten. (23) For the children of Ammon (north) and Moab (east) stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir (south), utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. God will cause a civil war in the midst of the one world beast armies and they will divide into king of the north, king of the south (Dan.11:40) and kings of the East (Rev.16:12). This is the battle beginning at Armageddon which mushrooms into a total nuclear world war, which will wipe the beast out (Zech.14:12,13) in one battle after another.

Notice that two thirds of this corporate beast united against one third. The two thirds retained the authority of the beast kingdom. The king of the north, Ammon, and the king of the east, Moab, destroyed mount Seir (Edom), king of the south and then they destroyed one another. God said he would fight "as when he fought in the day of battle", meaning the end time battle would be exactly like this. The U.N. beast kingdom will divide Jerusalem but God will divide them. The king of the north, the Russian Federation of Eze.38, and the kings of the east, China, Japan, and possibly N. Korea and N. Vietnam will lead the U.N. beast against the king of the south, the U.S. with allies, and destroy it. Then the kings of the east will lead the U.N. beast against the king of the north, the Russian Federation, and beat them. In this way the beast "shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces" (Dan.7:23). The whole world will burden themselves with Jerusalem in an attempt to pacify the angry Muslims. (Zech.12:2) behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling unto all the peoples round about, and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem. (3) And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it. The U.S. will find the end of her ride in Palestine.

Columbia broke up and burned after a sixteen day mission sixteen minutes before arrival. We are now in America's sixteenth, seventeen year war cycle since the thirteen original states were formed. Israel is the only other nation known to have had a seventeen year war cycle. The first mention of sixteen in the New Testament identifies a ship also. (Acts 27:37) And we were in all in the ship two hundred threescore and sixteen souls. In this text the sun and stars were darkened also as a type of the end of the tribulation and destruction of Babylonish U.S. (20) And when neither sun nor stars shone upon [us] for many days, and no small tempest lay on [us,] all hope that we should be saved was now taken away. Like the Columbia, this ship also broke up when coming to land. (40) hoisting up the foresail to the wind, they made for the beach. (41) But lighting upon a place where two seas met, they ran the vessel aground; and the foreship struck and remained unmoveable, but the stern began to break up by the violence [of the waves]. This is a clear sign that without repentance the U.S. will be broken up and destroyed by fire. The great thing is that all the elect will be saved. (23) For there stood by me this night an angel of the God whose I am, whom also I serve, (24) saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must stand before Caesar: and lo, God hath granted thee all them that sail with thee. (25) Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even so as it hath been spoken unto me.

David and Nona Grant just reminded me that Dumitru Duduman had a dream on the 5th of December, 1999, which is on my site. He said, "every time I prayed, a very big star would appear in front of me. This happened about sixteen times in a period of a few days. Every time the star would appear, it would make a great noise and I would always tremble. For a few seconds it would just stand up high and then at a great speed it would fall to the ground. I prayed together with my family for an answer. The sixteenth time it came. I heard a voice: Do you see this star? It represents America. This is how fast the fall of America will be, as fast as that star fell. At the close of NBC News on the shuttle, it signed off with a big logo on the screen saying, "COLUMBIA ... FALLEN STAR". Indeed it did look like a falling star. Satan, the king of Babylon, will use it to conquer the world in an attempt to subject the people of God but both will fall as a star from heaven. (Isa.14:4) that thou shalt take up this parable against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! (5) Jehovah hath broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers; (6) that smote the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, that ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that none restrained... (Babylon will bully the world during the tribulation.) (12) How art thou fallen from heaven, O day-star (meaning of Lucifer), son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, that didst lay low the nations! (The fallen Star of Lucifer and Babylon.) (13) And thou saidst in thy heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars (Abrahams New Testament seed are Christians [Rom.4:16] and are called the stars [Gen.15:5].) of God; and I will sit upon the mount of congregation (Rule over God's people.), in the uttermost parts of the north; (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. (15) Yet thou shalt be brought down to Sheol, to the uttermost parts of the pit.

This marked the one hundred and thirteenth flight in the shuttle program. One hundred stands for completion like 100 fold or 100%. Thirteen stands for rebellion. These two numbers together mean complete rebellion. The thirteen colonies which rebelled against England called the U.S. " Columbia". The first mention of thirteen in the Old Testament is also connected with rebellion. (Gen.14:4) Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled. There was a civil war in the midst of a nine king corporate beast just as there will be in the midst of the end time U.N. ten king corporate beast. Sodom, Gomorrah, and others rebelled against the confederacy. Sodom and Gomorrah have often symbolized the U.S. in prophecies describing its corruption and destruction. The end time Babylon (U.S.) will be destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah (Jer.50:40) when their rebellion against God reaches completion. The U.S. harlot will persecute the saints and force the world into its mark of the beast in order to protect itself. I believe the last straw will be an attempt to enforce U.N. resolutions to divide Israel for a State of Palestine. At the peak of rebellion, one hundred and thirteen, God will divide the harlot from the U.N. beast kingdom and she will be devoured by it. Through out history the harlot has used the beast kingdom to persecute God's true people and then God used the beast to devour the harlot and then God destroyed the beast kingdom.

This marked the twenty-eighth and last flight for Columbia. Twenty is first mentioned in Gen.6:3. "And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. Hundred here is the completion of what twenty represents. Twenty is connected here with the end of man's days by the coming of the flood and a new beginning for those eight in the ark. Eight is the number of new beginnings. The eighth day was the day of circumcision or the cutting off of sowing the flesh. Twenty-eight represents the death of the kingdom of man and the resurrection of the Kingdom of God in the earth. At the time of twenty-eight the harlot will be the first to be destroyed and the rest of the beast kingdom will follow. The twenty-eighth and flight for Columbia was also in the twenty-eighth month of the Intifada, which began on the twenty-eighth of September, 2000. On the twenty-eighth of January, 2003, Bush gave his State of the Union speech declaring his favor for a State of Palestine by dividing Israel's God given land. Israel has always been a symbol of what will happen to the Church. The harlot of the U.S. is about to take spiritual God given rights from the Church in order to pacify the militant Muslims and will reap what she has sown. Namely, God will break up the U.S. in more ways than we can know. By the way, the gematria for "this darkness" in Epe.6:12 equals one hundred x twenty-eight. One hundred is a number common to light and/or darkness.

We've had forty-two years of human space flight, identifying a span of time. There were forty-two kings in Israel before they were conquered by the beast of Babylon. Forty-two appears to symbolize the whole Christian era. Another proof of this is that all Christians from the beginning to the end are the forty-second generation in the lineage of Jesus. Count the forty-two generations of Jesus in Mt.1:1-17 and you will only come up with forty-one. The answer to this problem is the fact that there were two bodies of Christ. Three groupings of fourteen generations are listed. (Mt.1:17) So all the generations from Abraham unto David are fourteen generations; and from David unto the carrying away to Babylon fourteen generations; and from the carrying away to Babylon unto the Christ fourteen generations. In the names listed in the text from verses 1-16 we see that there were indeed fourteen generations in the first two groups but if you only count Christ once, there is thirteen generations in the last group that ends up with Christ. That would only make forty-one generations. We are the last generation, the forty-second generation of the body of Christ. (Ps.22:30) A seed shall serve him; It shall be counted unto the Lord for a generation (in Hebrew). (24:6) This is the generation of them that seek after him, That seek thy face, [even] Jacob. (1 Pet.2:9) But ye are a elect race (Greek: chosen generation), a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for [God's] own possession.... We just passed our forty-second President and forty-second monarch in Great Britain, two nations that have been called Christian.

Pray for the Chosen Generation, friends.


Rev. Petros Maeyens


"During the early hours of Sunday, September 27, 1998, I had a dream about shuttle. I was at the Cape to watch a launch. The launch was successful but I couldn't stop thinking about the disaster of Challenger when it blew up back in 1986. I guess, even now, I hold my breath every time NASA launches a shuttle".

"In my dream, as I watched the vehicle leave the pad, I kept saying to myself, 'Go, go, go'. It seemed like it was about a minute into the flight when something went wrong. (Editors Note: Just a little over a minute into Columbia's launch Jan. 16, a chunk of insulating foam peeled away from the external fuel tank and smashed into the left wing.) I expected the shuttle to explode, but instead it nosed over and came straight down. (Note: This was physically impossible but brought the shuttle back for those on earth to envision what would happen to it.) It landed without a problem, and after coming to a stop people started to approach it, when somebody said, "Stay back!" I noticed something flying off the front and rear of the ship as if things were being deployed for the crew to exit. A moment later the ship exploded in a terrific ball of fire. All aboard apparently were killed. That's when my dream ended".

America has been launching shuttles and utilizing all manner of technology to enhance space travel. But in the process, America has been doing all of this only so the world would exalt the sons of America and so the world would revere America's position as a force in space. We should not be exalting our American sons until we have exalted the Father's Son.

Columbia Shuttle Disaster CODE from Tom Gaston

I have already found a code on the "space shuttle". The base code is called "Columbia". [Found in Song of Songs 8:6 and Esther 2:12] It shows the cause was the debris hitting the wing on the "left port side" of the shuttle.

The codes "Crew, 16 days " which was the amount of days they were in space. Codes "the fracture, the first day, the wing, left side-fracture (wing-tile-crumbled, all connected together.) Also "the defect, the defect, the inferno, SPACESHIP, returning, to earth, in the death-crew, the 7 dead, burning, holocaust.

This is just one of MANY codes that can be found on "Columbia space shuttle flight 107". You can see from the code that the tragedy was due to "a defect in left wing which is the port side". Notice the codes on the right side of the base code "Columbia", they are all connected together "Tile, Wing, crumbled".

Notice the codes "from the 1st day, the fracture, the wing". NASA has reviewed the video pictures of the "liftoff" 16 days ago and saw a "Flash" on the left side due to the "Foam or insulation breaking off and hitting the left wing". This is where the damage was done. Such a sad sad tragedy.

The Columbia's VOYAGE was "16 days". You will notice that these codes are there. The HORROR it must of been knowing that they were "burning up". You can see the code "Screaming" which joins "Crew, Crew". Also the codes "The inferno" and "Glowing" joining together with the code "Holocaust" which means "To burn".

Some think that perhaps there was an "explosive device" in the "Landing gear bay". You will notice the codes "Landing strip" with 3 codes of "Gear" around it. I decided to go back into the code "Columbia" to see if there was any reference to any 'foul play or sabotage'. Additional pages 3 and 4 reveal the possibility? of this very thing.

(Editor's note: The Landing Gear door could have opened in flight because of heat in the wrong places. It could have twisted the craft and blown off.)

I am NOT suggesting anything here, but only providing the NEW FINDINGS in this matrix "Columbia". Was there any 'sabotage', I DON'T KNOW! God could be showing 2 different stories in this matrix. I believe that the "insulation did break off" the fuel tank because the video shows it.

This matrix may? show another part of the story that is NOT being told. Was there an "explosive device in the LANDING GEAR area of the craft", I DON'T KNOW? NASA I believe should take measures and test the recovered pieces to see if there is "ANY RESIDUE" from any known plastic explosives that MIGHT? have been used. You will all have to draw YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS.


(Jn.3:27) ...A man can receive nothing, except it have been given him from heaven. Everything primarily comes from God. How could God be our Father if He let us have a free will to do anything we want with impunity? How could God be our Father if He gave the devil a free hand with us? We would never conceive of doing either of these with our children. There is something else that this understanding really helps us with. If all we ever see is the devil behind everything bad that happens, we never have a reason to repent or change our ways. But, if we look behind the devil and see God, we have a reason to repent. This is why it is important that we understand the sovereignty of God. We can always look behind the devil and see God and wonder why God granted the devil to have his way with us.

Job understood more than most people in the New Testament about the sovereignty of God. (Job 2:10) What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. God made it very plain that Job was not sinning by saying that good and evil comes our way from God. It was the devil doing the works, but Job was giving no credit to the devil. The devil is just a vessel. We have to look behind the vessel and see the sovereign God. If we can do that, we have a reason to wonder why we are in a bad circumstance or situation. If there is something we need to change, we will be motivated to change it. We will not be motivated to change it if we only see the devil. We will keep on with our sinful ways and think it is the mean old devil. It is convenient for the flesh to say, "The devil is doing this because I am so good", rather than, "God is doing this because I deserve it or need it". No, think again; it is God!

This verse came to my mind when the space shuttle blew up. (Lk.13:4) Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and killed them, think ye that they were offenders above all the men that dwell in Jerusalem? (5) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. It may be politically correct to blame national catastrophes on the bad guys, but the truth is we will not repent. We see God's purpose of judging the unrepentant being fulfilled in this verse. God destroyed everything on the earth by the flood in the days of Noah. On the whole earth, only eight people were considered righteous by God and saved in the ark. Is our day any different? (Mt.24:37) And as [were] the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah by fire from heaven. God told Abraham that He would not destroy those evil cities if there were only ten righteous people in them. Is our day any different percentage wise? (Lk.17:29) but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all: (30) after the same manner shall it be in the day that the Son of man is revealed.

I am not saying that God does not send the devil sometimes so that we can learn to overcome evil. I am saying that God also sends the devil so that He can whip us when we are not in the will of God. What we need to do is look behind the devil, who is only a vessel of dishonor, and see God. We have to begin to see God in everything. He alone is sovereign. If we can do this, we will be constantly motivated to walk with Him and obey Him. I can hear someone offended saying, "God does not send the devil". Just as God works in vessels of honor "to will and to work, for his good pleasure" (Phil.2:13), He also works in vessels of dishonor. (Rom.9:21) Or hath not the potter a right over the clay, from the same lump to make one part a vessel unto honor, and another unto dishonor? The devil is the head of God's vessels of dishonor. God uses him whether he knows it or not. He is a created being. God would not be very smart to make a being that could whip or outsmart Him much less beat up on His children without a purpose.

(Mt.28:18) And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth. That does not leave any authority for the devil except what is given him. Jesus said, "All authority", not "All power". Authority is the right to use power. Jesus had the right to use all power because He had all authority. Jesus has authority over the devil's power and, as we shall see in a later chapter, authority to use the devil's power.

(2 Cor.5:18 and 1 Cor.11:12) But all things are of God ... Wow! That little phrase is used twice in the New Testament. I dare say, if you made this statement among most Christians and they did not know it was in the Scriptures, they would probably rebuke you for it. Have you ever heard people say, "This is of the devil", or "That is of God"? The Bible says, "All things are of God". Why does He say that? That does not sound right, does it? The problem is between our ears. We know that some things are through the devil. That is true; they are, but they are primarily of God. God's plan is what is being fulfilled here on earth, not the devil's plan.

(Jn.3:27) ... A man can receive nothing, except it have been given him from heaven. That really does not fit with what we have been taught. Most of God's people are absorbed in the teaching that some things are of God, and some things are not. This doctrine has been passed down through the traditions of men. All of the reformers warred against this faith-robbing lie, including those in the Catholic Church like Augustine. We need to see God as on the throne, always ruling. Then, when we look at circumstances around our lives, we are motivated to fear, to respect, and to have faith in Him.
