The Lightning..

Samson's Monologue..
The Tower (XVI) (most common modern name) is the 16th trump or Major Arcana card in most Italian-suited Tarot decks..This card follows immediately after The Devil in all Tarots that contain it, and is associated with sudden, disruptive, and potentially destructive change..Some early, painted decks, such as the Visconti-Sforza tarot, do not contain it, and some Tarot variants used for game playing omit it..In some Belgian tarots and the 17th century tarot of Jacques Vi√©ville, the card is called La Foudre or La Fouldre, ("The Lightning") and depicts a tree being struck by lightning..In the Tarot of Paris (17th century), the image shown is of the Devil beating his drums, before what appears to be the mouth of Hell; the card still is called La Fouldre..A. E. Waite's version is based on the Marseilles image, with small tongues of fire in the shape of Hebrew yod letters replacing the balls..The Minchiate version of the deck may represent Adam and Eve's expulsion from the Garden of Eden..The project’s leadership observed the shelter from Compania Hill, about twenty miles from the tower..The tarot readings of fortunetellers Sofie and her mother Apollonia advance the plot significantly..

Carnivàle Nuclear Bomb Explosion in Los Moscos HD ..

Management urge Ben to seek Scudder; Ben needs to learn the name of the preacher of his dreams (Brother Justin) to prevent a future catastrophe.. An induced vision transports Ben into a desert where he suddenly hears an alarm-like noise.. A massive explosion occurs, followed by a rising mushroom cloud..When Ben opens his eyes from the blast of dust, Justin kneels in front of him and asks "Ye offspring of serpents, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?"..The Gospel of Matthias is a lost text from the New Testament apocrypha, ascribed to Matthias, the apostle chosen by lots to replace Judas Iscariot (Acts 1:15-26).."we must combat our flesh, set no value upon it, and concede to it nothing that can flatter it, but rather increase the growth of our soul by faith and knowledge"... haven't gone and had your portrait painted, have you?..But, Mother, I can't! You see, this is Mr. Craig, and I'm one of the characters in his dream!..Oh, Mr Craig..Now that you've met us, I sure that you wouldn't dream of dreaming about us again..I wish it were as easy as that, how shall I put it, being out at night in a thunder-storm..There's a flash of lightning and, for one brief moment, everything Stands out: vivid and startling..And what have the lightning flashes illuminated so far?..
