Alligator attacks in Florida, Pay heed to danger! (July 11, 2012)

Today a story posted on MSN about an alligator attack on a teen brought back memories of a similar attack to a very good friend of my son named Ricky. He along with his brother Robert and other friends went to swim at the waters of a drainage channel in alligator alley , the only road through the Everglades between Miami-Dade and the West coast of Florida.

Unknown to them there was a gator stoking them in the water and the gator came between Ricky and the shore to cut his scape to safety. He tried to fend off the gator with his arms and the gator bit into both arms. His brother ran to the car and got a revolver they had in the car and shot the gator point blank killing it to free the hold on Ricky.

They were far from a hospital, but they got in the car with Ricky and drove to a Coral Gables hospital where his arms were treated. Some of the bones had been crushed, but he regained mobility of the fingers. I was present at the hospital that evening for long hours till he came out of the operating room. His whole family is very close to ours.

The point of this post is that the fresh waters of Florida can be very dangerous. It is for sure that these attacks happen much more frequent that what the article says and people should be very careful if they go in the waters of Florida.

The analogy I want to make is this, people tend to disregard danger in general and the thought that comes to mind is that we write articles after articles about the danger that is looming in the horizon for the whole world with the approaching Apocalypse and very few take heed of the warning. Satan is like a roaring lion (gator) seeking whom to devour and devour he will.

Pay attention to the thinks that are happening around you and use caution in the things you do.

With his right arm trapped in the jaws of a 10-foot alligator, a Florida teen came to a chilling realization as the animal tried to yank him to the bottom of the river.

“He started pulling me down, and I knew I either got to lose this arm or I’m gonna die,’’ Kaleb “Fred” Langdale told NBC News.

Langdale, 17, lost his right arm below the elbow Monday after a lazy day of swimming with friends in the Caloosahatchee River in Moore Haven, Fla., nearly turned deadly. After the alligator clamped on his right arm as he tried to swim away, Langdale did his best to mimic what he has seen professional gator trappers do on reality television in order to escape.

“I took my left hand and grabbed that skin underneath him to try to control him, and he just kept going,’’ Langdale told NBC News. “I pulled his head up and I wrapped my legs around him and he just went and dove.’’

Though the alligator had torn off a part of Langdale’s right arm, he was able to summon the energy to swim back to shore. He put his ravaged arm between his legs to stop the bleeding before rescue workers arrived. In the aftermath of the ordeal, Langdale remarkably maintains a positive outlook.

“I’m just happy that I’m still alive, (and) my buddies are still alive,’’ he told NBC News. “I could care less about my arm.”

“He never has a bad outlook on anything,’’ said his mother, Felinda Langdale. “He told me ‘it’s OK that it was my right arm because I drive my airboat with my left arm.'”

Langdale and his friends did not have enough money to gas up their boat on Monday, so they decided to take a swim in the river. Langdale said the alligators usually don’t come near swimmers, but he acknowledged that the river is full of them. Many residents of Moore Haven learn to swim by going in the Caloosahatchee River, an official with Moore Haven Code Enforcement told WBBH-TV in Fort Myers.

“You can’t go 10 feet without seeing a gator,’’ Langdale told WBBH.

Langdale said he’s grateful that he was the one attacked.

“I’m glad he chose me instead of one of my friends because I don’t think they would have done the same thing and got out of it,’’ Langdale said.

The alligator had previously been tagged as a nuisance and was scheduled to be captured later that afternoon. Had Lawndale and his friends waited a few more hours to go into the water, the animal may have already been removed. Langdale’s arm was pulled from the gator’s stomach after it was killed by a trapper, but the limb could not be re-attached.

Langdale, who is undergoing surgery Wednesday, is recovering at the Lee Memorial Hospital.

“I feel like I got my arm bit off,’’ Langdale joked after a nurse asked him how he felt.

The attack on Langdale was a rare event, as there have been only 335 attacks and 22 deaths in the last 64 years in Florida. Currently, it’s mating season for alligators, which experts say is the most dangerous time to encounter one.

“It’s not a controlled environment like Disneyland or something like that,’’ Jeff Ardelean of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told NBC News. “It’s not a theme park. This is wild Florida.’’

Langdale’s mother was not surprised that the youngest of her three sons took a dip in a river teeming with alligators.

“I was shocked, but it’s almost like I expected it at some point,’’ she told WBBH. “Not necessarily the alligator part — but something happening to Fred.’’

Langdale’s ordeal has shaken his friends and town residents, who regularly seek refuge from the heat by taking a dip in the river.

“Everybody is scared because it is something real that happened,’’ friend Matt Baker told WBBH. “You see it in the movies. ‘Oh he got his hand bit off.’ But it’s like – that fear factor that it actually happened.’’

However, those who know Langdale predict that he will jump right back in the Caloosahatchee River when he gets a chance.

“Yeah, that’s a guarantee,’’ Baker told WBBH. “Once Fred gets out of the hospital, he’ll be the first one in and everyone else will get back in.’’

  1. Possible Rapture, SUNDAY, July 15, Tammuz 25

    Check out the latest speculative scenario and ponder these high points:

    Yom Kippur 2011 (Oct 8) plus 280 days (Jewish mths count) = Tammuz 25, 2012, Rapture. This 280-day span is likely the pre-trib spiritual ‘gestation’ of the Church. Know that 280 plus 75 days (30+45 post Return days) = 355, one Jewish year. By the way, the three letters, SHEEN, NUN, HEH (spelling of ‘shana’/year in Hebrew) equal 355…..interesting.

    Soo too Yom Kippur 2018 plus 280 days = Tammuz 25, 2019/END of TRIB, the likely post-Return spiritual ‘gestation’ period of the Remnant. Thus the entire trib (Rapture to end of the 1335 from mid trib) with the -23-day loss considered is exactly 7 Jewish years (Tam 25 to Tam 25).

    Know that Jesus had a 280-day gestation period as well (40 wks/Tevet 1, 8th day of 8th Feast, to Tishrei 15) and the Church is His Body and the Remnant will also be His Body 7 yrs from now, both needing a ‘gestation’ period.

    Attention can now be given to KISLEV 24 of Haggai 2. 1260 days past the Rapture is Sunday, Dec 27, 2015, the day the a.c. satanically ‘rises.’ This is also the day that he successfully destroys the 2 witnesses (via his newly-acquired satanic power). On this day the world will send gifts to one another in celebration of their demise (i.e. there will STILL be something on earth for people to ‘rejoice’ over; thus the GREAT TRIB will NOT have begun yet in all of its fury; but 3+ days later they RISE/& Raptured (Dec 30) and there will be nothing left on earth that warrants joy in any way, shape or form. Dec 30 (Tevet 18) minus the projected 23-day loss is KISLEV 24. When the earth is straight, the date of Dec 30, 2015 will be (in retrospect) as it would have been 23 days earlier, that of KISLEV 24, 2015. Thus the Haggai 2 verses referring to the extreme tumult of Kislev 24 will occur via that perspective.

    Of equal interest is the fact that the Jerem 51:46 1-yr warning (360 days/ Jan 29, 2011 Temple Mt UFO to Jan 24, 2012) plus exactly 150 days (as Noah story) plus another 23 (that will minus at the Return) is SUNDAY, TAMMUZ 25, July 15, presumed Rapture. 173 days (150+23)

    from Jan 24, 2012 (end of the 1-yr warning) is this coming Sunday, July 15. Noah & family WAITED 150 days (earth unlivable) til their exit from the Ark.

    As per the Mazzarot, this Sunday, July 15 is CANCER 24, the 11th sign/judg and the 24th day = 888/Jesus’ protection. There are verses of God’s protection of His own in His hand, “….no one can snatch them from My hand.” The crab has the praesapea/eggs inside, as per the ‘beehive,’ nebulous cluster (the Church) in the sign of Cancer. The 7-yr Pact SIGNING will likely be THURSDAY, CANCER 21 (11/777 if applic), 3 days before the Sunday Rapture.

    The Return is Thurs, June 6, 2019 (1260 past mid trib) and June 6 is GEMINI 15 (10th sign/the twins/God & Israel ‘walking’ evenly hand in hand as the Jews call Jesus back to earth). 75 more days (30 + 45) takes the Mazzarot to its very first day of the entire cycle, VIRGO 1, the first sign, a likely day for the trib to be completed and the Millennium to legally begin with attention to the Mazzarot cycle; i.e. Virgo 1 is the first day of the Millennial 360-day Mazzarot cycle. Virgo 1 will be Aug 1 & Av 1, during the Millennium.

    The Return plus 30 days of mourning is CANCER 15, the sign of the judg (beginning of the 45-day judg of the Nations), & balanced/exact middle of the sign. This is the day that Jesus walks with His Remnant (His protected OWN/’eggs’ of the praseapea)/Isaiah 63/from Petra. Then 45 days later is VIRGO 1, end of the 45 days of Judgment of the Nations. The Nations will be judged according to their treatment of Jews & Israel.

    Thirteen days past the Rapture is July 28, AV 9, 2012, the Divine Victory in the mts of Israel (hail, quake, huge carnage, etc/Ezek 38-39) followed by 7 perfect 30-day mths (210 days) of burying bodies & bldg 3rd Temple in Jerusalem. The END of the TRIB at Tammuz 25 is also JULY 28, 2019, matching the July 28, 2012 Victory (Av 9). Ezek 39:9 speaks of 7 yrs fuel use of Russian weaponry and July 28, 2012 to July 28, 2019 is 7 yrs.

    After the 7 mths of burying bodies, beginning Av 9-10, the date is FEB 23, 2013, when Temple Worship begins and lasts exactly 2300 days (+3 uncounted mid trib days)/Dan 8…..ending at the Great Temple Entrance of Isa 63, June 13, 2019 (30 days past May 14). The earth is straight, the 30 days of mourning will be over and the horrific 45-day judgment of the Nations will begin.

    The RETURN at June 6, 2019 minus 23 days tilt loss is MAY 14, the 1st day of the 71st anniversary of Statehood. May 14 is also a TUESDAY (3rd day/earth straight /one meaning of Hosea 6:2-3). The earth’s change of position (to straight) is reviewed in Isa 13:13, 24:1,19,20 AND the earth must revert back to a 360-day, pre-flood year.

    As for the Zech 8 four Fast Days to be turned to joy, Yom Kip/Tish 10 was already turned to joy when the veil tore (at the Cross). Thur, Dec 24, 2015 (1260 past the likely Thurs July 12 signing) is when the a.c. breaks the signed covenant/Tevet 12, which still counts as TEVET 10 (fast day) because of the previous Sunday holding the Tevet 10 count (counts are only determined on SUNDAYS). Also Av 9 minus the tilt loss is TAMMUZ 17, taking care of that fast day; and of course, AV 9 will be the great mountain Victory in Israel, most serious Fast Day to joy….thus all 4 Fast days will have been turned to joy.

    As you can see, the MAIN END DATE of the trib (as per the Pyramid timeline as well) is YOM KIPPUR 2018… the 280-day spiritual gestation period of the Remnant reaches the end of the trib, July 28, 2019, Tammuz 25. In other words, there is a 280-day period on EACH side of the trib….one for the Church & one for His Remnant……both HIS BODY.

    Yom Kippur is when a 50-yr Jubilee span must begin; and when the 17 ‘uncounted’ yrs are reviewed, one sees that Yom Kippur 2018 is really Yom Kippur 2001, beginning of the 121st Jubilee. God promised fallen man 120 yrs (Jubilees)/6,000 FULL yrs…..and He will not pass that mark because His Word is sacred.

    There is still SO much more that holds…..but, alas, I’ve offered so many ‘false’ dates (remember the ‘CLARIFICATION’ Daniel spoke of) that I’m sure your interest has waned beyond the chance to retrieve. But, I just thought I’d share these few points since the spans fit so well and there is still ample harmony in the scenario. Know that it was always on a SUNDAY when the most significant events happened for the Christian (Palm Sun, Resurrection Sunday, Pentecost Sunday….and of course CREATION and the 8th Day Counte of Creation……etc.

    All is exact: 2520, the three 1260’s, 1290, 1335, 7 mths burying, 7 yrs fuel use, 7 exact yrs Av 9 to end of trib, all the Fast Days turned to joy, pre-Rapture pattern of the 150 days (as Noah in Ark) plus the 23 to the Rapture, the 2 gestation periods…..etc…..etc. What else is there? If you charted it all, you could see it more clearly. Anyway, for what it’s worth, look to Tammuz 25, Sunday…………J.H.
