Times are changing – part 3


Fifty one years ago today, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and J.P “Big Bopper” Richardson, lost their lives in an Iowa cornfield taking with them, it seems, the last of American innocence.

helter skelter in a summer swelter, the byrd flew off to a fallout shelter, eight miles high and falling fast, then landed in the foul grass, the player tried for a forward pass, with the jester on the sidelines in a cast, now, the half time air was sweet perfume, while sergeants played a marching tune, we all got up to dance, but, never got the chance, cause the players tried to take the field, the marching band refused to yield, do you recall what was revealed, the day the music died?

What was revealed the day “the music died”????   In 1972, the Don Mclean hit from his 1971 American Pie album was released as a single, on a record label clearly marked Yahweh Tunes, Mayday Music, part of some thing called the Silver Spotlight Series.  Unusual, choice of names I thought, for a record label, “Yahweh”, being the hebrew name for God and “mayday” being a distress call.  I’ve begun to realize in my walk with the Lord recently, that there really isn’t too much that is coincidence.  God is all about numbers, dates and patterns.  Its how we identify his handiwork.  If you’ve never taken the time to explore this you have really missed out. The fingerprints of God are every place, if, we would just take the time to look for it.   As I think about the lyrics to this song, I can’t help, but, think that somehow, God has issued this as a cultural warning to those of us who will listen.  Mayday! Mayday! The distress call has gone out, but, is anyone listening?  I’ll reiterate what I said in the previous post, God loves us, the distress call has gone out. The time for heeding it is quickly coming to a close. And I think the evidence tieing these two things together can be found below. Check this out!

but, february made me shiver, with every paper I delivered, bad news on the doorstep, I couldn’t take one more step

What’s February got to do with it?  Well, alot!

-Pay attention here, don’t let the unfamiliar words throw you off –

“On the twenty fourth day of the eleventh month, the month of Shevat, the word of the Lord came to the prophet Zechariah …..During the night, I had a vision — and there before me was a man riding a red horse!  He was standing among the myrtle trees in a ravine.  Behind him were red, brown and white horses. I asked, ‘What are these my lord?’  the Angel who was talking with me answered, ‘I will show you what they are …. ‘They are the ones the Lord has sent to go throughout the earth.’  Zechariah 1:7-10

Ok, this is important, on a specific date (Shevat 24) which translates to our date of Feb 15, 519 BC, God gave the prophet Zechariah a vision of something that would happen in the future. At some time in the future, God would send his judgment in the symbolic form of four horses throughout the earth.

Here’s where it gets really interesting, if not a little spooky, this date, the 24th of Shevat is almost the exact same date as the day of the Buddy Holly plane crash AND the same date of Super Bowl 44, the match up between colts and saints.  What are the chances that all three of these incidents would be tied together with the same date?  Like I said, before, I don’t believe in coincidence!

 Ok, they share the same date, but, for what purpose?

In the book of Zechariah, it says this – “And there was before me, a man riding a red horse, behind him were red, brown and white horses.” Zecharian 1:8 – compare it with the passage below from Revelation.

 “I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals … I looked and there before me was a white horse, its rider held a bow …. he rode out as a conquerer bent on conquest…. When the Lamb opened the second seal … another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay one another.  When the Lamb opened the third seal … there before me was a black horse. Its rider was holding a pair of scales, a quart of wheat for a days wages ….. When the Lamb opened the fourth seal … there before me was a pale horse, its rider was named death and hades … they were given power over the fourth part of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague …” Revelation 6:1-8

The purpose of the rider on the red horse is to initiate judgment – the horses that follow him carry out that judgment. The next question might be, who is being judged and why?  I think this is where the Buddy Holly plane crash and  Super Bowl 44 come in – the can all be found tied together in the enigmatic lyrics of “Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie” on the record label Yahweh Tunes, MayDay Music.

 Are we being warned????  Of course, we are, any student of the Bible can tell you that.  But, the culture around us appears both blissfully and foolishly unaware –“drove my chevy to the levee, but, the levee was dry, those good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye,  – singing this will be the day that I die”.  What is a chevy, if not the “heartbeat of america?”  And what does a levee do? A levee is an earthen structure between land and water, that allows rivers to rise without water flowing on to the land side of the levee. In the Bible, water is symbolic of the Holy Spirit, but, our secular american culture has erected a levee against it; hindering its flow;  constraining the water from flowing like the mighty river  God intended on to our land and blessing it.  By the time we get our “chevy to the levee”, it will be found dry.

Now the half time air was sweet perfume, While the sergeants played a marching tune, we all got up to dance, but, we never got the chance ….”

Now the half time air was “sweet perfume”.  Foot ball in Miami ??????  Maybe.  Take a look at the names of the two teams involved.   The names alone tell a story –  For instance, the root of the word indianapolis of the Indianapolis colts, is indian – from the word “india” which means red;  indian/red skin. (Red colt/Redhorse) –  The New Orleans Saints, new, because the original Orleans is in France and although the word Orleans itself is not known to have any meaning, Orleans is the home of the martyr, Joan of Arc, the national heroine of France and catholic saint  who was burned alive at the stake in the 1400’s.  Or new as in New Testament saints, the last living believers before the return of Jesus Christ.  Any way you look at it, you have to admit, the imagery is striking.

“… cause the players tried to take the field, but, the marching band refused to yield, …oh, and there we all were in one place, a generation lost in space, with no time left to start again, …so come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack flash sat on a candlestick, because, fire is the devils only friend, ….and as the flames climbed in to the night, I saw satan laughing with delight, the day the music died.”

On September 11, 2001, America was shaken, this time from her passivity.  On a day, most of us will never forget and over three thousand people lost their lives.  A sacrifice to those who saw our vulnerability and took advantage of it. And although the day sticks in our national mind, for the most part, we have went back to life as usual.  Churches that had filled up after the towers came down, are empty again. We simply sighed and went back to business as usual; back to our People magazines, our big screen t.v.s and our music videos. The brief vision we had of our own vulnerability, our own mortality, quickly faded, and in the end became not much more than the stuff bad dreams are made of.   America you were not ready then and you are not ready now.  America is a ship without a rudder, a navigator without a compass, and ship with no one at the helm.  The watchman cry out, but, with no one to guide them, the cries fall on deaf ears.   And because America has not repented from her sins and recognizes not where her help comes from, the four horses of judgment will ride …. and when they are released, they cannot be restrained.

The name of the month of February comes from the latin Februa which means “purification.” The name of the month of January comes from the latin Janus which means “gateway or door”  and the month of March from the latin Mars, means “war”.   The longst eclipse in a millenia took place on January 15.  Solar eclipses are signs of warning, (solar signs to the gentile nations, lunar, signs to Israel).  Was January our warning to seek February purification before God before March a time of war.  This morning, incidentally, on Good Morning America, 3 seperate intelligence officials were queried before congress and each one testified independently; an act of terrorism on American soil in the next 3- 6 months is “certain”. I find that quite chilling; God help us!

 The Bible tells us that trials come that we might be purified.  The purpose of trials is to lift our eyes heavenward, to turn us toward God.    

“Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth” Psalm 121:1 

 I met a girl who sang the blues, I ask her for some happy news, but, she just smiled and turned away, I went down to the sacred store, where I’d heard the music years before, but, the man said, the music wouldn’t play, and in the streets the children screamed, the lovers cried, and the poets dreamed, but, not a word was spoken. The church bells all were broken and the three men I admired most, the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost had caught the last train for the coast –   the day the music died.



  1. Wow, this is so very interesting… Im nearly speechless. I really believe that you are on to something very big here, you have so much depth and understanding! I will be praying and keeping a watchful eye, I love you and thank you for your blog Mom. Many blessings to you Mama!
