Dear Doves,

While I watch the mainstream news, I also enjoy keeping up with news articles that tie into prophecy and the closeness of the rapture.  Here are some I would like to share with you.

Jcal (22 July 2010) “The belly of the antichrist system is found here!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The following article is long and as I am posting it here I have not read it yet. It seems to be an expose of a society of very rich and powerful people which compromise the satanic power behind the Antichrist.

This copy of a part shows the gist of the article,

The name of the society shall be The Pilgrims.” This is
what they call themselves—The Pilgrims. They may also be referred to
as The Pilgrims Society; Pilgrim Society; Pilgrims of America; Pilgrims
U.S.; Pilgrims of United States; Pilgrims of Great Britain; Pilgrims
(London); Pilgrims (New York) or other slight variants such as Pilgrims
(NYC). The name doesn’t exactly sound menacing, does it? Probably less
so than Skull & Bones Society (Yale University), which has had some

The Skull & Bones is the Masonic chapter for black masons, Obama is a member.

The article looks very good and I am looking foward to reading it.

Hussein’s End Game Finally Comes Into Focus

Dear Doves,

Do you remember all the excitement I shared with you about discovering that Hussein’s passage of the health care power grab legislation on March 23rd 2010 was not unique? It’s an almost exact legislational replica to laws passed by Adolph Hitler early in his rule. Exactly, 77 years to the day after Hitler’s Enabling Acts were passed by the German Parliament in1933, Hussein successfully took control of domestic life here in the United States? 1)

Then I discovered that both Mohamed and Hitler were born on April 20th.2) I’ve amassed records of dozens of disastrous events occurring on April 20th. Most of these tragic disasters involve the Gentile nations. Most recently, the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded and sank in flames on April 20th claiming the lives of 18 men. The significant details of how these men died was not immediately apparent to me.
However, a study of the occult calender and sabbaths shows us that during the period from April 19th-May 1st, followers of the occult are called upon to make sacrifices to ‘The Beast’ 3) The Beast is a term almost uniquely ascribed to the Antichrist of the Holy Bible. 4) Over the last fifty-five years, thousands of cattle mutilations have been reported worldwide. Roughly 85% of these animals have been killed between April 19th and May 1st. These surgically precise animal vivisections always involve removal of the animal’s sex organs and the complete removal of all the animals bood. 5)
Remarkably, I also discovered that during this annual period of sacrifices to ‘The Beast’, followers of ‘The Beast’ that are seeking to experience his ultimate power are called upon to make their sacrifices on April 20th! That sacrifice must take place ‘by fiery conflagration’ This was exactly what happened to the poor crewmen aboard the Deepwater Horizon last April 20th! 6)
Evil men anxious to obtain the favor of satan by providing sacrifices to ‘The Beast’ should act between April 19th and May 1st, however those men eager to obtain absolute power are required to make human sacrifices by fire on April 20th.Their efforts are focused upon providing human sacrifice, just the way satan likes it. Raw, bloody cooked up in a firey conflagrationtion. Remember, how the victims of the Deepwater Horizon explosion died. This explosion was brought about by the activities of men in order to placate, please and worship satan. In return, they will be elevated to positions of unlimited earthly power. I believe the men that will benefit the most will be Hussein and the CEO of BP.7) As early as Febuary, the Deepwater Horizon well was known to be a runaway time bomb. By continuing to operate the leaking well, BP signed the death warrants of 18 men. BP has long been a partner in Hussein’s Cap and Tax wealth redisribution plan. They stand to benefit handsomely when Hussein succeeds in passing the new American Energy policy later this week. Gas prices will quickly pass 8 dollars per gallon.8)
I’ve also discovered strong historical links between every significant human dictator, human sacrificial acts and blood festivals held on the 20th of April. By these particularly barbarous human sacrifice’s, Antichrists both great and small appear to have obtained their power by appealing to satan.(9
When I recalled the strange foreign pilgrimage Hussein made to Berlin while a candidate for the Democratic Presidential Nomination. I had a strong feeling there’s much more than a coincidental link between the public health politics of Hussein and the euthanasia and abortion policies of Adolph Hitler. It wasn’t until I read about the magnificent Pergamon Museum, which Obama used along with the Victory Column and the Brandenburg Gate as a backdrop for his Berlin Speech that I suspected a connection. After all, what would be the wisdom of delivering a campaign speech in front of a military Victory Column celebrating Germany’s past victories over France and Russia?10)
After, I read about the sensational discovery of the Throne Room of Zeus, that I knew there was more to the story. That breakthrough came when I discovered the link between the earthbound alter of Zeus and satan. Consulting my Bible, I soon realized that this Zeus of Pergamon was in reality our ancient enemy, ‘the accuser of the Brethren’ and chief of all the ‘the fallen angels’. Curiously, this was also how the location of Throne Room of Zeus was revealed to 19th Century German archeologist’s. Following the clues left in the scriptures, a linguist and a modern map of Turkey German adventurers discovered, painstakingly removed and restored the enormous artifact taken from the ruins of Pergamon Turkey. Eventually put on magnificent display in a museum built specifically for it, the Alter of Satan still draws one million visitors to Berlin each year.
Over the last 120 years, Berlin has been the epi-center for the planning and conduct of both great World Wars. Almost without respite, East and West squared off against each other across Berlin. Once again, the fate of Europe and perhaps the entire world was at stake. For seventy years, it was the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie and the City of Berlin constantly at the center of the world’s new fear. For the first time the nightmarish prospect of war carried with it the possibility of human extinction from the use of thermonuclear bombs. It’s Berlin where all the wars of the 20th Century either began, or ended. We must consider the possibility that the presence of the Throne of Satan in Berlin has somehow influenced the behavior that made these threats possible.
Kaiser Wilhelm II, the Emperor of Germany during ‘The Great War’ has publicly stated that the greatest triumph of his 40 year reign was the construction of the Pergamon Museum and the public display of the Throne Room of Satan. Hitler’s connection to the occult and dark powers cannot be understated. The Fuhrer, was obsessed by the collection and intense study of all things satanic. From his years of service in the Catholic Church in Linz, Hitler served as a choir boy. To say that Hitler was obsessed by the occult doesn’t really do him justice.
Recently, it was discovered that after the capture of Berlin, Stalin ordered the Throne Room of satan removed to Moscow. In it’s presence, Stalin ordered new purges of popular wartime leaders, onerous 5 year production plans and the subjugation of the remainder of eastern Europe. He grew more autocratic, paranoid and isolated. The murder of the Jewish Poets apparently whetted his appetite for more. He ordered a detailed organizational plan for a second Holocaust to murder Europe’s remaining Jews. He retreated to his dacha outside Moscow for the weekend, ‘the final Jewish pogrom’ was scheduled for a rubber-stamp vote of the Politburo on Tuesday. When Stalin failed to awaken from an alcohol fueled binge the next morning, his associates noted Stalin was still breathing so they failed to summon the physician’s detailed to care for him.
The alter, which first served Attalus, the King of Pergamon is adorned with amazing sculptures and statues of the fallen angels at war with ancient giants.This war is chronicled in the Bible in the Book of Genesis.
Relocated to the Biblical city of Pergamon, the Mystery Religion Babylon fled to Pergamon after being ejected by Cyrus the Great; a messianic Christ like hero to the Jews. The prince’s and priest’s of Babylon passed down their ancient traditions to King Attalus, who in turn surrendered them to a growing Rome Republic after a brief battle.
Along with the counterfeit religion of Babylon, the signs, symbols and titles once unique to Babylon became part of the official title of the leaders of Rome. The influence of Babylon was soon felt in Rome, the title of Caesar was born. The absolutist rule once used to terrorize the world by King Nebecadezzer was reborn with the Dictatorship of Julius Caesar was born. The ‘cult of emperor worship’ transformed forever a noble republic into an absolute totalitarian state. In the process, the well known Roman virtues became vices. Under Augustus, the Roman Senate was rendered a ceremonial body and irrelevant to the conduct of the state’s business. We are witnessing exactly the same criminality at the hands of Hussein.
We have witnessed unprecidented imperial behavior designed to circumvent the Judiciary and legislative branches. Over the last 18 months, Barrack Hussein Obama has installed 37 czars to run his enormously expanded government. These executive appointments of czars are designed to avoid background checks and investigation of criminal backgrounds. While embarking upon spending programs to destroy the financial, moral and religious strength of this nation. Below, enjoy the latest proof that Hussein is without doubt antichrist.

Alan Clark (22 July 2010) “Oil expert Simmons insists ‘20 million people are entrapped in harm’s way’ ”

More information about the danger that is lurking in the oil well at the Gulf. There are so many things that can go wrong in all this disaster that it is very possible that the warning interpretations from the crop circles (see tsunami alert post in this blog). I hope that tomorrow comes and goes and nothing happens for the good of all believers that are in harms way of this disaster that never stops.

Oil expert Simmons insists ‘20 million people are entrapped in harm’s way’

They’re still lying about the oil disaster

Oil expert Simmons insists ‘20 million people are entrapped in harm’s way’

17th July 2010

Oil industry insider Matt Simmons blew the whistle on the made-for-TV capping of the so-called oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico Thursday, July 15, during an interview on KPFK radio, the NPR station in Los Angeles.

Simmons, former energy adviser to the second President Bush, explained that according to his reading of the data from NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, capping of the so-called riser and the subsequent announcement by U.S. President Obama was “the biggest con job we’ve ever seen.”

Simmons, creator of an investment bank catering to oil companies, told radio host Ian Masters that the real problem continuing to gush oil into the Gulf was not the 6-inch “riser” that apparently has been capped amid much TV hoopla, but that an open hole or cauldron perhaps up to 10 miles distant from where British Petroleum’s cameras are focused which continues to spew 120,000 BARRELS per day, and that BP’s much publicized effort to drill relief wells in what the company says is an effort to stop the flow of oil is nothing but a cynical publicity stunt.

“The dimensions of this lie are beyond belief,” said Simmons, explaining that the idea of a relief well is “tricky at best,” since trying to hit a pipe of less than a foot in diameter 35,000 feet below the surface of the Gulf may be entirely futile because the casing of the original pipe is not even there, having blown away at some point.

But Simmons noted that both BP and Obama continue to deny that this open hole, or cauldron, even exists, even though Simmons and others insist the NOAA data from satellites prove by speed of flow and depth of light that the amount of oil that has been flowing through the on-camera riser could not possibly account for the amount of oil that has spilled into the Gulf.

“The riser is totally irrelevant,” Simmons stressed, adding “and there’s no way to cap the open hole.” He explained that BP continues to deny the open hole exists and theorizes the continuing flow of oil into the Gulf is really just the residue from what has already been spilled during the first 90 days of the disaster.

“There is denial that there’s even a problem,” Simmons said. “In about a month or two people will realize that this actually was the biggest con job we’ve ever seen.”

Simmons also noted an additional danger. “What the researchers now believe is that basically is that between 4000 and 4500 below the ocean floor lies an oil lake that’s somewhere between 100 and 120 miles wide and it’s about 4500 feet deep. It’s this toxic waste and crude and it’s releasing methane gases that are absolutely lethal which is why all the fish and dolphins and sharks and whales are dying. And workers too, which is why so many have gotten sick, or maybe really sick.

“The health problems are so serious,” Simmons said. “When you inhale methane you just die.”

The only possible solution, Simmons insists, “is a small diameter low level nuclear device. They insert it down the well 18000 feet, and set it off. It will fuse the rock and glass, and it’s totally safe, three miles under the seabed.”

Radio host Masters asked, “When do we get the truth?”

Simmons responded, “Basically the walls are starting to cave in on BP. there are only so many things you can make up.”

“But here’s the really scary thing,” Simmons told the Pacifica radio audience. “If we have a storm, let alone a hurricane, what hurricanes basically do is they churn up cold water from the base of the Gulf. This time it’s not going to be cold water, it’s going to be black poisonous crude. It will also shut down the 18 power plants along the Gulf Coast.

“So we’re going to entrap 20 million people in harm’s way.”

(22 July 2010) 9 of Av for the Jewish Nation Temple News

Jim Bramlett (22 July 2010)
“From Dr. Jimmy DeYoung”

Dear friends:

Thanks to John Terry at for the below article.

Today is a historic day on the Jewish calendar, the 9th day of Av, or Tish B’Av. It has also been a tragic day. See Dr. Jimmy DeYoung’s article below. Dr. DeYoung is a highly respected Bible and prophecy scholar.

But a wonderful day is just around the corner!

In just six days, on the 15th day of Av, there will be another historic day, Tu B’Av, on a full moon, signaling the end of the wheat harvest (the church), the beginning of the grape harvest (Israel), the traditional Jewish holiday of matchmaking, when the maidens, dressed in white, danced in the vineyards and called on the young men to seek worthy brides for themselves. It is sort of a Jewish Valentine’s Day.

Tu B’Av is said to prophetically picture the Marriage of the Lamb of God. Therefore, many believe the rapture will be on Tu B’Av. Let is pray it will be this year. Come, Lord Jesus.



Jews in Jerusalem and Around the World Today Are
Praying for Another Temple to Be Built in Jerusalem
By Dr. Jimmy DeYoung
Prophecy Today

Today Tish B’Av, the 9th day of the Jewish month Av, is the day on the calendar in 586 BC and 70AD that both the first and second temples were destroyed. The first temple being destroyed by the Babylonian army led by Nebuchadnezzar and the second temple devastated by General Titus and the Roman army.

Jews on this day gather near the area where these temples once stood at the Western Wall and during the 25 hour fast they read the book of Lamentations and pray for the temple to be rebuilt by next Tish B’Av, a prayer that has been prayed every day for over 1900 years.

This Tish B’Av hundreds and thousands of Jews marched to the Temple Mount led by Gershon Solomon, head of the Temple Mount Faithful, to not only read Lamentations and pray for the rebuilding of the next temple, but to also protest American pressure to even give up the Temple Mount to the Palestinians for a Palestinian state.

Even as America applies pressure on the Israeli government to give up the Temple Mount, there are Jews preparing to follow through on their prayers for a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount. They have everything ready to build the next temple and fulfill Bible prophecy.

On Tish B’Av hundreds and thousands of Jews gather at the Western Wall in Jerusalem and at the seven gates that lead up onto the Temple Mount to read the book of Lamentations and to pray for the temple to be rebuilt by next Tish B’Av.

US pressure on Israel to give up the Temple Mount is in the face of God’s plan for this sacred piece of real estate. 2500 years ago the ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah prophesied that the Messiah, Jesus Christ, would come back and build His temple, the kingdom temple, on the Temple Mount (Zechariah 6:12). I must remind you, however, that before Jesus builds His temple, there will be a temple in the seven year Tribulation period (Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15, II Thessalonians 2:4, and Revelation 11:1.) This next temple will be desecrated by the false messiah, the Antichrist. All preparations have been made for that temple, the tribulation temple, to be rebuilt and they could start construction today.

On Tish B’Av remember – Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

Mike Curtiss (22 July 2010) “A Year After Honeymoon Ends, Whites, Men and Independents Desert Obama WSJ”

Very good article Mike. In my opinion it is irrelevant that he has lost support, his plan is not to go the route of following institutional of constitutional paths to rule and lead within constraining parameters of law.
He will start or provoke a war, disasters civil war or crisis of race and religion to completely rule and control in the most ruthless form ever implanted by any man on this world. He is the Antichrist! This should be enough to describe what is coming soon.

A Year After Honeymoon Ends, Whites, Men and Independents Desert Obama WSJ

Dear Doves,

Already cast aside, the Congress has become as irrelevent as the Supreme Court. You see Hussein never expects to answer to any ‘lower’ authority for his deeds. When those mighty bodies failed to remove Hussein on legal grounds, they ceased to become something Hussein respects. Even fellow members of the Democrat Party don’t matter to Hussein. You must remember that Hussein has no interest in maintaining power in the shared hands of any other body of elected officials. That’s because Hussein grows more powerful as they pass his new laws which make all them grow weak.

The Democrat Party still doesn’t understand, they’re expendable. Their demise actually helps Hussein stir the pot and bring upon civil war. A civil war where Hussein alone has the power to survive, benefit and prosper. Hussein maintains control over hundreds of billions of dollars of unspent Stimulus funds. Only he controls how that monies is spent.

There’s not going to be another meaningful contested election. Even if there actually is an election in November, the outcome matters little. The Congress and Supreme Court are just there for window dressing. Hussein doesn’t respect our form of government anymore than he cares for the love of women. He’s in a big hurry to pass his last important legislative act before he ceases complete control.

When Cap & Tax is complete an ‘Iron Curtain’ will drop down and surround us all. Soft tyranny will be at an end. People will wake up some morning soon and discover that they are no longer ‘free people’ They’ve become wholely owned organs of the state. It’s a real life nightmare made possible by the very same Democrat Party enabler’s Hussein will quickly kick to the curb. We only have a few short days before this bill passes into law. Prepare yourselves, spiritually, emotionally and materially for the greatest conflagration of all time. ‘the devil has come down to you’ If there’s a Rapture, it’ll happen very soon.

Read the WSJ blog below. The post-racial president is revealed as the most racist American leader of all time.

Agape Love,


A Year After Honeymoon Ends, Whites, Men and Independents Desert Obama

It was a year ago this month that President Barack Obama began losing voters. In the 12 months since, he has had legislative victories that appear – especially in the case of health care – to have cost him large amounts of both political capital and political support.

A comparison of the public’s views of him then and now tells us a great deal about the shape of American politics and how difficult it is for any president, even one as politically gifted as Barack Obama, to surmount the nation’s deep political and ideological divisions.

Mr. Obama won a surprisingly easy victory in 2008, carrying 53% of the popular vote and 365 electoral votes – along with Bill Clinton in 1996, the biggest Democratic presidential win since Lyndon Johnson’s 1964 landslide.

Candidate Obama promised “change we can believe in,” a post-partisan, problem-solving presidency that would heal the nation’s yawning political divide. By the time he was inaugurated in January 2009, Mr. Obama had stratospheric public approval ratings, heightened by many who had voted against him but decided to give him a chance despite their misgivings.

For the first six months of his presidency, Mr. Obama retained vigorous public support – until he tried to translate into legislation his promise to “reform” health care, which, it turned out, meant different things to different voters. In July 2009, the demonstrations against the Obama health care plan reached critical mass and began to deflate the president’s poll numbers, and that continues today.

Skepticism About the Government’s Role

The U.S. economy has continued to flounder, and surely that is part of the reason for the president’s decreased standing. But the disillusionment with the president’s handling of the economy stems from the same public skepticism about the role of government in economic policy as in health care.

Quinnipiac University today released a national poll of 2,181 registered voters, almost twice the size of most national polls. (It has a margin of error of 2.1 percentage points.) It showed President Obama’s net job approval rating at its lowest point ever – 44% approve, 48% disapprove.

In July 2009, Quinnipiac’s national poll had the president with 57% approve, 33% disapprove.

The decline in Mr. Obama’s support over the past year has been across the-board, with the largest decreases being among whites, older voters, political independents and men.

Some of it was to be expected. It was unlikely, for instance, that given Mr. Obama’s preference for increased government involvement that he was going to keep the 21% of Republicans who approved of his job performance in July 2009. That figure is now 12% – more than a third lower.

Losing Faith in Obama

So, too, went white, evangelical Christians, perhaps the largest GOP constituency group. In July 2009, 35% said they approved of Mr. Obama’s job performance. Today, that figure has been cut almost in half – to 19%.

If it was just among Republicans and their ideological allies that the president was losing support that would not represent a serious political threat.

What is most problematic for the president is the drop among whites, men and political independents. Those demographic groups gave him greater support in 2008 than they had most Democratic presidential candidates over the past few decades.

Simply put, when Democrats carry or are competitive among whites, independents and men, they win the White House.

When they don’t, they don’t.

Winning the White House

On Election Day 2008, much was made of the increased turnout that Mr. Obama inspired among young voters and African-Americans, and to be sure that fattened his margin. But he won the White House because, the exit polling showed, he got 49% of men, 43% of whites and 52% of independents. Each of these three groups individually makes up a larger share of the electorate than blacks and young people combined.

In July 2009, President Obama had actually grown that support so that he was getting a thumbs-up job approval from 54% of men, 51% of whites and 52% of independents.

But today, the numbers for those three groups show just how far he has fallen. He gets a positive job approval from just 37% of whites, 38% of independents and 39% of men – a roughly 30% drop in all three groups in his support.

And the bleeding has spread to his fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill. In July 2009, voters said by 42%-34% that they would back a Democrat for Congress; today, they said they prefer a Republican, 43%-38%. The drop-off among the various demographic groups is similar to that for the president.

All of which suggests the last year has convinced an awful lot of the folks who hadn’t voted Democratic for president in some time before supporting President Obama to rethink their politics with an eye toward returning to their political roots.

July 20, 2010 A new point of view from the Bible about Tu’B’Avand the Rapture.

A new point of view from the Bible about Tu’B’Avand the Rapture.


Bro J (20 July 2010)
“Tu B’ Av” Smoking Gun?

Hello All,

Long-time reader, first-time writer. First off, thanks to all the brethren who “search the scriptures daily” and have shared their thoughts/inspirations/questions/ideas with the rest of us over the years. Keep it up! Having read various posts re: “Tu B’ Av”, I was reading Judges 21(as it pertained to it’s reference to Tu B ‘Av, the commemoration of the 200 Benjamite men carrying away 200 virgin girls from Shiloh for marriage as they take them back to their land in Benjamite territory) and noticed some interesting wording, specifically Hebrew meanings of words used in verses 15-23 of Judges 21, and here’s what I discovered: with ‘Benjamin’ meaning “son of the right hand”, ‘Shiloh” meaning “tranquil” (peaceful), (and “Shiloh” we know is a reference to Jesus Christ (“The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a Lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come. And the obedience of the peoples to him.” (Gen. 49:10), the verse infers that “The Son Who sits at the right hand (of God the Father) leaves His “territory” and snatches away the Virgin Bride of (the King of Peace) Shiloh and carries her away back to His territory (her new “inheritance”) The inheritance of the 600 Benjamites (Jud. 21), with over 25,000 of their brothers now slain (Jud. 20:35), is now a HUGE inheritance (John 14:2,3) (which the new bride now has “co-inherited” (Eph. 1:11) with the “Son of the Right Hand”). Now–the smoking gun? The word translated “seize” a wife (Jud. 21:21) and “caught ” (a virgin bride-to-be) (Jud. 21:23) in the Septuagint (Gk. trans. of old test.) = Harpazo–(yes, same word used in 1 Thess. 4:17   “Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up (harpazo) together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
God bless all–Bro J

July 20, 2010 Iran to hit back ‘in seconds’ if attacked Castro Says

Iran to hit back ‘in seconds’ if attacked
Sat, 17 Jul 2010 05:48:34 GMT
Font size :
Former Cuban president Fidel Castro
Former Cuban leader has declared that any military action against Iran will trigger a full-scale war, saying that the Islamic Republic will respond to any invasion “in seconds.”

Cuba’s 1959 revolution leader also warned of a looming nuclear conflict in the world during an appearance at the country’s Foreign Ministry on Friday, Reuters reported.

He argued that a devastating war would begin if the United States and Israel attempt “to enforce international sanctions against Iran for its nuclear program.”

The 83-year-old Castro said any assault on Iran or North Korea would initiate a war that could entail serious consequences for humanity.

He said that a possible strike against Iran will turn into a full-blown military faceoff as the country will strike back within seconds.

Speaking to a gathering of Cuban envoys to more than 110 countries in the capital Havana, Castro explained that “the US finds itself now in an unsolvable dilemma (in the Middle East). It cannot get out, nor can it stay,” Castro told 115 ambassadors, who listened with rapt attention.

He further noted that the US situation will force it to resort to war in order to get away from the Mideast.

Criticizing the large number of US nuclear arsenal and Washington’s heavy military spending, Castro had earlier cautioned the White House that an attack on Iran would be catastrophic for it.

NEW ORLEANS – Scientists huddled Tuesday to analyze data from the ocean floor as they weigh whether a leaking well cap is a sign BP’s broken oil well is buckling.

Oil and gas started seeping into the Gulf of Mexico again Sunday night, but this time more slowly, and scientists aren’t sure whether the leaks mean the cap that stopped the flow last week is making things worse.

The government’s point man on the disaster, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, will decide again later Tuesday whether to continue the test of the experimental cap — meaning the oil would stay blocked in.

He said Monday the amount of oil leaking was so far inconsequential. But ever since the flow of oil was closed off Thursday, engineers have been glued to underwater cameras and pressure and seismic readings, trying to determine whether the cap is displacing pressure and causing leaks underground, which could make the sea bed unstable and cause the well to collapse.

“As a condition of moving forward with the well-integrity test, BP has to report to us any anomalies and act on those within four hours,” Allen said Monday.

Seepage from the sea floor also was detected over the weekend less than two miles away, but Allen said it probably has nothing to do with the well. Oil and gas are known to ooze naturally from fissures in the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

At a Monday afternoon briefing in Washington, Allen said BP could keep the cap closed at least another 24 hours, as long as the company remained alert for leaks.

For those whose livelihood depends on clean waters, worries about the cap were tempered by relief that the oil stopped gushing.

“I’m for anything that will stop the oil from coming,” said Capt. Ty Fleming, who runs charter fishing trips in Orange Beach, Ala. said Tuesday. “I guess when you’ve got how many million gallons pouring out before, and now you have less, it’s like comparing a coconut hitting you in the head with a raisin. The raisin would be insignificant.”

BP and the government had been at odds over the company’s desire to simply leave the cap in place and employ it like a giant cork in a bottle until a relief well being drilled deep underground can be used to plug up the well permanently.

Allen initially said his preference was to pipe oil through the cap to tankers on the surface to reduce the slight chance that the buildup of pressure inside the well would cause a new blowout. That plan would require releasing millions more gallons of oil into the ocean for a few days during the transition — a spectacle BP apparently wants to avoid.

On Monday, Allen budged a bit, saying unless larger problems develop, he’s not inclined to open the cap.

Also on the table: Pumping drilling mud through the top of the cap and into the well bore to stop up the oil flow. The idea is similar to the failed top kill plan that couldn’t overcome the pressure of the geyser pushing up.

BP said it could work now because there’s less oil to fight against, but it wasn’t clear how such a method would affect the cap’s stability. Allen said the relief well was still the plan for a permanent fix.

BP and the government are still trying to understand why pressure readings from the well are lower than expected. Allen offered two possible explanations: The reservoir the oil is gushing from is dwindling, or there is an undiscovered leak somewhere down in the well.

“I’m not prepared to say the well is shut in until the relief well is done,” which is still several weeks away, Allen said. “There are too many uncertainties.”

BP and the Coast Guard learned that lesson the hard way after they initially said no oil was coming from the site of the Deepwater Horizon rig after it exploded April 20, killing 11 workers. Even after it became clear there was a leak, the company and its federal overseers drastically underestimated its size for weeks.

A BP employee told government investigators Tuesday that weeks before the explosion, he reported a leak of hydraulic fluid in a critical safety device that could have prevented the disaster.

Ronald Sepulvado, a BP well site leader, told a panel of government investigators in suburban New Orleans that he didn’t know if federal regulators were notified of the leak, as required.

A federal regulation requires drilling operations to be suspended if a blowout preventer pod isn’t fully functional, but BP didn’t stop drilling. Sepulvado said the safety device passed the last pressure test performed 11 days before the explosion.

Work on a permanent plug is moving steadily, with crews drilling into the side of the ruptured well from deep underground. By next week, they could start blasting in mud and cement to block off the well for good. Killing the well deep underground works more reliably than bottling it up with a cap.

Somewhere between 94 million and 184 million gallons have gushed into the Gulf over the past three months in one of America’s worst environmental crises.

BP PLC said the cost of dealing with the spill has now reached nearly $4 billion. The company said it has made payments totaling $207 million to settle claims for damages. Almost 116,000 claims have been submitted and more than 67,500 payments have been made. BP stock was down slightly Monday.

“I’m hoping that they’ll get everything cleaned up within the next one to two years. Let’s hope things will get back to normal,” said Terry Lash, manager of Doc’s Seafood Shack & Oyster Bar in Orange Beach, Ala. “We’re hurting really bad, but there are other restaurants that are worse than we are.”
