The Pentagon and America

The Pentagon, a five-sided building housing the offices of the U.S. military, was conceived on a weekend in mid-July 1941. It was needed because the military was out-growing its office space. This is interesting because America was not at war at that time. Pearl Harbor was attacked five months later in December 1941. The five-sided design was used because the original planned location was bounded by five roads.

The proposed location was near Arlington Cemetery. President Roosevelt felt that the location would block the view of the Capitol from Arlington, so the Pentagon was relocated to the site of older, poor homes. Despite the change of location, the pentagonal design was retained. The name of the new location was Hell’s Bottom.

It troubles me that our nation’s military leadership is housed in a building reminiscent of a satanic pentagram, and is located at what was known as Hell’s Bottom. But there is more. Saturday of the weekend in mid-July, 1941 was July 12th. It was also Tammuz 17 on the Hebrew calendar. Good things never happen on Tammuz 17. Jewish tradition says the walls of Jerusalem were breached by both the Babylonians and the Romans on Tammuz 17 before the destruction of the Temple.

One more thing – the ground breaking for the Pentagon was on September 11, 1941.

Jewish rabbis have noticed that the verses of the Old Testament seem to tie to historic events. An example is the 5,708th verse, which corresponds to the Hebrew calendar year of 5708. On our calendar the year is 1948, the year Israel was again established as a nation. The 5,708th verse of the Bible is Deuteronomy 30:5, “And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it.”

Using this principle, I find the following disturbing verse for the year 1941 – Deuteronomy 29:27, “And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book.”

Here is what the Lord has to say in the verse corresponding to September 11, 2001, which is Deuteronomy 32:8, “When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people …” The Lord set the boundaries of nations. May our nation not be involved in dividing Israel, the Promised Land, the apple of God’s eye.

Pray for the United States of America. Pray for our leaders. May the children of the Living God humble themselves, and pray, and seek His face, and repent. May He hear from Heaven, forgive us and heal our land.
