Leisa Ebere: prayer alert over warning of LA earthquake

Although not averse to the occasional controversial blog, I’m always wary of ‘doom and gloom’ soothsaying. So I held the following for a couple of days, especially in view of urgent demands upon me – but upon reviewing to acknowledge her, am responding to how Leisa reacted too… 

She writes, ‘I am sending a prophetic vision the Lord has been showing me this last few days, which saddens me greatly, because I spent my childhood growing up in California. But nevertheless, the Lord has instructed me to share it and here it is:


given to Leisa Ebere, November 10-12th, 2019

‘The Lord has been giving me a prophetic vision over several days, warning that a mighty and terrible Earthquake shall be coming upon Los Angeles, California – and IMMINENTLY.  And I saw buildings and bridges crashing down and cars being crushed and people being killed and injured as they were trapped in the rubble, and I saw a large yellow and brown-tinged haze of dust covering the city as some people (the survivors) rose from the city with that same dust upon their faces and clothes. And they were walking towards their appointed places of authority within that city.

Then I heard the Lord say: “My Terrible Shaking Must Come for the Dead to Rise and Heed My Voice. For I Will No Longer Tolerate the Abominations Widespread Across the City of Los Angeles. My Mercy has held back the hands of My Angels, as mentioned in Revelation 7, far too long. Selah, My Heart Grieves For What Must Come, My Child,” says the Lord of Hosts.’

Veronika West’s dream of Donald Trump in lion’s den coming to pass – Facebook censorship?

Late this morning Veronika announces a dream (NB: of Feb 2019, ie 9 months ago!) is possibly coming to birth. First, however, I note her reference to problems with FB as its link to WordPress ceased to work with my scheduled posts published last Thursday and Friday. And in trying to revive the linkage Fb refuses so far to work and has reduced my normal access to both blog and personal profiles. That is, I couldn’t post or communicate via Fb – maybe it’s having software changes as I’ve now found can copy previous post to version of this blog!!


‘Please consider sharing as Facebook is limiting my reach and trying to prevent everything I submit concerning President Trump…!’

A prophetic vision of the Ancient Books of Destiny of the UK, USA and Israel


Posted Monday 11th November by Veronika West on her Ignite Ireland Ministry facebook (access-link in above title):

Note; I felt lead to share this Word/Vision this evening for the purpose of prayer and intercession…I have sat on this Vision for just under a week as it has challenged much of my own understanding of end-time theology concerning these Nations but dare I say I felt the Spirit of God say, “OBEDIENCE IS ALL I REQUIRE OF YOU”, hence why I am posting this word/vision at this time, as I believe it is a ‘NOW’ WORD…!


This evening I was prompted to go into my prayer closet as the Spirit of Revelation wanted to show me something significant..,so I quickly fed my hungry family and rushed upstairs, I shut the door and fell on my knees.

As I began to pray in the Spirit, suddenly I heard the sound of a gavel being hit upon a wooden block and as I prayerfully leaned a little deeper into the sound, suddenly I was caught up in a powerful vision where I found myself standing in what looked like an elaborate type of library, and as far as my eyes could see I saw that there were hundreds upon hundreds of large Ancient Books lining the back of the walls in this strange place. This room was so vast that I couldn’t see where the room began or where it ended, and the ceilings in this strange and magnificent place were so high that again, I could not see where the ceiling started or ended, the walls seemed to span out as far as my eyes could see, no beginning and no end, but as I tried to adjust my vision to my surroundings to get a closer look things seemed only to get further away. However, I knew by revelation that this was in fact a realm and dimension of the Spirit that I had never seen or encountered before now…,I could tangibly feel the WEIGHTINESS OF THE GLORY OF THE LORD IN THAT PLACE…RADIANT LIGHT OF MANY COLOURS ILLUMINATED THE WHOLE PLACE, THE ATMOSPHERE FELT THICK AND HEAVY WITH A SENSE OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD, AND YET A FEELING OF GREAT EXPECTATION AND ANTICIPATION FILLED MY HEART AND MIND….then suddenly I became aware of the presence of an Angel of the Lord who was standing at my right hand side…! Ha! But I dared not look to the right or to the left, as I was immediately overwhelmed by a feeling of great awe at both the size and the sheer magnitude of this created angelic being that was standing at my side,….now while I dared not look at the Angel of the Lord I could feel an intense heat radiating from where the Angel stood, strange heat waves seemed to penetrate my innermost being.

While trying to take in all of my surroundings within the vision my heart began to inquire of the Lord and immediately the Angel spoke to me saying, “FEAR NOT! ONLY WATCH AND DO NOT SPEAK”…!

As I heard the voice of the Angel suddenly the Vision shifted and I found myself standing looking at three (3) large and ancient books, which stood upright and side by side, now just looking at them I could feel the WEIGHTINESS of each book, NOT EVEN THE STRONGEST OF MEN NOR THE MOST POWERFUL OF MACHINES COULD LIFT EVEN ONE OF THESE ANCIENT BOOKS THAT STOOD BEFORE ME…! As I looked intently at them, suddenly a voice spoke to me saying, “THESE ARE THE BOOKS OF THE WRITTEN DESTINIES OF THREE NATIONS…”, as I listened, daring not speak or utter a single word, I looked at the first book and I knew by revelation I was looking at the BOOK OF THE WRITTEN DESTINY OF THE NATION OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, the Middle book which stood between the three was the BOOK OF THE WRITTEN DESTINY OF ISRAEL and the last of the three was the BOOK OF THE WRITTEN DESTINY OF THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN…as I stayed watching, SUDDENLY I SAW, AS IF IN SLOW MOTION, THE BOOK OF AMERICA, THE BOOK OF ISRAEL AND THE UNITED KINGDOM BEGIN TO FALL….having tangibly felt and experienced something of the WEIGHTINESS AND THE MAGNITUDE OF THESE 3 BOOKS, I BRACED MYSELF FOR A GREAT AND TERRIFYING SHAKING THAT WOULD HAPPEN AS THEY FELL TO THE GROUND….



As I heard the voice speak I saw again the TWO SOLID GOLD BOOK-ENDS BEING PLACED AT EITHER SIDE OF THE THREE NATIONS THAT WERE FALLING, as I looked at these Golden Book-ends I saw the WORD…’RIGHTEOUSNESS‘ deeply engraved on the one and ‘JUSTICE‘ deeply engraved on the other’….! As I looked and I looked again I saw that the BOOKS OF THE WRITTEN DESTINIES OF THESE THREE NATIONS WERE NOW STANDING UPRIGHT, SIDE BY SIDE AND FIXED FIRMLY IN PLACE FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS…!

Then Suddenly, I found myself aware once again of my natural surroundings and I began to pray as the Spirit led me to pray for the three Nations I was shown. The Spirit of Revelation quieted my Spirit as I began to meditate on everything I was shown. I believe and submit that the three Nations I was shown have a UNIQUE AND DIVINE CONNECTION IN THIS HOUR AND THAT THE DESTINIES OF THESE THREE NATIONS ARE INTRINSICALLY INTERWOVEN WITH ONE ANOTHER. “RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE” SHALL SURELY PREVAIL AS THE GOLDEN BOOK-ENDS THAT WILL PREVENT THESE NATIONS FROM FALLING AT THIS TIME.

The primacy of Evangelism, the shiftiness of Jung and disappearance of freedom of speech — Gavin Ashenden

Am very pleased to learn of Revd Gavin’s early liking of Carl Jung and stark warning about consequential darkness for those who follow his path, for that too is my story but which began a decade earlier than his journey.  I was intrigued that his auto-biography told of a ‘revelatory’ dream that started Jung’s delving into psychic realms because it falsely pointed to God loathing the traditional Church. What’s more, it’s thus not surprising Jung soon acquired a spiritual guide, or ‘mentor’!  [My personal account at I’m Free! tells of these dangers and how only the Lord Jesus could rescue me and transfer me from the devil’s domain into His Kingdom – Colossians 1:13.]

Only 5 per cent of UK population love the Bible. We need to get serious about evangelism. 11th November 2019 Following the news that just 5 per cent of the population are ‘Bible-loving’, Bible Society has created seven other spiritual types (such as ‘Bible Nostalgic’ and ‘Bible Indifferent’) to indicate various attitudes to scripture that…

‘Triple Twelves’ general election is really ‘Quadruple Twelves’

You may recall reading, and hopefully not too puzzled by, Triple-Twelve Significance of December’s General Election. I noted the PM’s inspired selection of the 12th day of the 12th month, and which is also the 12th day o Advent, for this overdue political event.

The blog generated a lot of interesting contributions, of which a number brought more insight, as follows.

“Everything is on track, prophetically speaking. Veronika West’s 2 chairs prophecy now enters its final month, ending at end of Nov or thereabouts – Chris Moyler [see below].

“2019 also adds up to 12!” – Wendy Weeldon.

“I am fascinated by the work of the Almighty. I remember sometime ago messaging you that the Lord had one more thing to reveal – I sense this is it and what a surprise – numbers are so important in the works of the Lord. I knew 3×12 was not enough! 4×12 is 48 and the day after, 49 – Jubilee is the day on which the result will be declared. (Emphasis mine)

“Alleluia … The General Election is in His hands – Jubilee – Sabbaths’ Sabbath – the year of release! Alleluia!”- email from Erica.

Also, the Facebook page brought a host of comments, those relating to numbering are as follows:

Jeroma Davies: “The No 12 signifies perfection re: 12 Disciples,12 Tribes of Israel, 144,000 made up of 12×12 in scripture. But for us as a Nation God is Releasing a PERFECT FOUNDATIONAL GOVERNMENT!  Amen.”

Maxine Phyllis: “It speaks to me of the three-dimensional New Jerusalem, described in Revelation 21 as 12,000 stadia in length, and width, and height. The wall was measured as 144 cubits in human measurement (v.16-17).

Yvonne Coombs: “The twelve tribes with the four banners! England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales…Success of UK and any other Country is to bless Israel and the 12 relates to the 12 tribes of Judah and there are the four banners of those tribes and this I believe spiritually represents England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, a symbolic alignment of God’s will that correlates with blessing Israel…The 4 Divisions or Groups of 3 Tribes, were headed by the Tribes of Judah, Reuben, Ephraim and Dan, and the principal banners of these four tribes are shown in the East ‐ A Lion, A Man, An Ox and an Eagle. [To this I added links to Vision of Lion & Four Faces of God and Veronika West’s similar vision.

The Facebook thread closed with further, notable thoughts from intercessor Maxine over in Nova Scotia submitted last weekend as follows (extracts only).:

“Today I went to read scripture and the Bible opened at the NEXT chapter (book of Esther). My eyes immediately fell on verse 1 chapter nine, which says “On the thirteenth day of the TWELFTH month, the month of Adar, the order commanded by the King was to be carried out.” There was a period of time between the month of Sivan (called the THIRD month in the Bible) and the month of Adar (TWELFTH month) in which preparations were made to seize the final victory. That’s a nine-month period which lines up with Veronika West’s post about the baby’s head crowning, etc. Not sure of how the Jewish months are calculated but the month of Adar is equivalent to February/March on ours, lining up with the date of Purim in 2020. It comes to me that the time between December 12, 2019 (election date) and Purim 2020 will call for powerful times of rising up and driving the enemy back..

“It comes to me that there are TWO twelves happening with Brexit; one representing the Kingdom of God manifesting on the earth l(which I’ve heard the Lord say “is Jewish from beginning to end”) and one in the New Jerusalem above who is free and who is our mother (Galatians 4:26). It’s a full circle event in which the fullness of the Kingdom sees both Spirit-led Christians and Jews overcoming the enemy entirely…”

SO, a most hearty and grateful thankyou goes not only to the above but also to all my readers.


The references to a fourth 12 by Wendy and Erica, together with Yvonne’s reference to four and Jeroma and Maxine’s implied references to solidity, served to enhance Chris’ reminder of the dream of two chairs at a meeting of Boris Johnson and the Queen that Veronika West reported on 26th July (see Pray for New PM Boris Johnson).

Those emphatic changes of the election’s date from a triple-12 to quadruple-12, must  indicate the importance of that dream’s possible manifestation. Study therefore, this extract of Veronika’s posting:

“Now in the dream I saw Boris Johnson shaking hands with Her Majesty the Queen and they both began to chat with one another about the new position of influence that Boris would have in the days ahead in the Nation. As I watched them talk in the dream they both proceeded to sit down together, and as they went to take their seats, suddenly I noticed that the CHAIR that PM Boris Johnson took was a chair that LOOKED LIKE AN OLD ANTIQUE CHAIR, WHICH WAS NOT ONLY VERY EXPENSIVE BUT VERY, VERY FRAGILE, NOW AS I LOOKED AGAIN IN THE DREAM AT THIS OLD AND EXPENSIVE ANTIQUE CHAIR, THE FOUR (4) LEGS OF THE CHAIR WERE IMMEDIATELY HIGHLIGHTED TO ME AS SOMETHING VERY SIGNIFICANT, BOTH the number of legs that the chair had (4) and the fact that THE LEGS OF THE CHAIR LOOKED VERY SKINNY AND NOT VERY STRONG…


“On Hearing those words in the dream, I began to CRY OUT FOR THE NATION ONCE AGAIN..! And suddenly the dream shifted and I saw the Queen stand up and I heard her say these words to PM Boris Johnson, “COME! DO NOT SIT ON THAT SEAT, IT’S NOT VERY STRONG OR STURDY BUT RATHER SIT ON THIS SEAT”..,and I watched as Her Majesty then led PM Boris Johnson to the CHAIR OF WINSTON CHURCHILL… and I watched as PM BORIS JOHNSON THEN SAT DOWN UPON THE LARGE AND COMFORTABLE CHAIR WHICH HAD BELONGED TO SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL!”


My readers’ references to ‘improving’ 3 x 12 up to 4 x 12, appears to confirm Veronika’s repeated emphasis upon 4, especially in changing chairs from one of weak legs to one of four very sturdy legs for governmental (ie: No. 12) purposes.

What do prophecy and numeracy indicate about Brexit’s timing?

PS (11/11/19): Further to recent posts on numbers, this is offered for information and weighing with the Lord – and we shall watch to see if January’s date for Brexit comes to pass:


1. Prophetic word brought by Emma Stark on The Lord’s plans for Brexit and Northern Ireland (28 Feb 2019):

“I heard the Lord say this – it was so clear – He said, “Brexit is out of Time”. I don’t mean like it’s running out, because we know it’s running out in terms of the end of March – but it is “out of Time” of the order of God. And the Lord says, “Do not fear, even if there is a delay. Do not fear, if that looks like increased chaos.” For the Lord says, “There is an order, and I will start in Ireland,” And they will form such a new understanding, and a new relationship with one another, that the Lord says, “It will be a model for what I want to do in nations and how they will relate to each other, even across the continent of Europe and beyond.” But the Lord says, “I am beginning a work of reconciliation and seeing each other and solution in Ireland.”

“And the Lord says, That is going to even have an effect on Brexit.” The Lord says, “Let Ireland be solved first before Brexit can be unpacked and fully realised.” And you can see God working in an order around the nation, from Ireland in the south, up to Northern Ireland and across, down into Westminster…” 

2. Veronika West’s dream in September 2019 published 17 October in Does PM Boris Johnson Have a Deal?:

“In light of this Breaking News headline that PM JOHNSON has struck a deal with the EU I felt led to share a strange dream I shared with some powerful prophets / intercessors in the month of September where I saw in this dream a DEAL BEING SIGNED, BUT IT DID NOT HOLD….IT DID NOT HOLD.’

Subsequently, she clarified her caution over his Brexit deal, “…I truly believe that heaven has already decreed that this Nation will be SET FREE FROM THE CHAINS OF OUR TASKMASTERS THE EU….But friends, the timing of our full redemption is in GOD’S HANDS AND HE IS A MASTER CHESS-PLAYER, every one of His moves on the Chessboard that is our Nation is precise, strategic and unquestionably accurate, HIS TIMING IS PERFECT IN ALL THINGS.”


Further to national events and after publishing his new book Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, Jonathan Hill expanded upon his 2016 ‘Escape’ paper as follows, as well as revisiting the dating posited therein:

‘Potentially the UK may leave the European Union on 31st October 2019. This is exclusively x 153 days from the Brexit Referendum on 23rd June 2016.

‘The Greek words for ‘the net’ (το δικτυον) in John 21:11 have a numerical value of 1224 which is factored precisely by the numbers ‘8’ and ‘153’ (8 x 153 = 1224).

‘Just as the fishes of John 21:11 ‘escaped’ the sea via ‘the net’, so may the United Kingdom escape from the European Union via ‘Brexit’.’

Next, he issued this ‘Watch’ update:


‘The 31st October 2019 was heavily marked for an ‘escape’ of the UK from the EU (see Brexit: the Escape of a Nation). However, even though the typology of the ‘net’ (of John 21:11) was compelling, it was not the date for the UK to finally ‘escape’ the European Union.

‘Is this ‘marking’ now proved to be false? Possibly, if it was not for the fact (emphasis RB) that the next potential ‘leave’ date (31st January 2020), as will be seen, has an even stronger ‘marking’ upon it than the 31st October 2019..!

‘It is conceivable that the marking on 31st October 2019 was an intermediary towards the final ‘escape’; an emphasis that the UK’s exit from the EU, whenever it happens, has spiritual significance. This would be consistent with Hebrew scriptures which contain layers of type and teaching depicting the same truth. God certainly prepares and endorses His message through preparatory picture and metaphor before the final outworking of His plan – the annually sacrificed Passover Lamb being the archtype before Messiah’s final sacrifice for all. The two proclamations by John the Baptist of ‘Behold the Lamb of God!’ (John 1:29, 36) confirmed this type and truth. So, the 31st October 2019 appears to be a symbolic picture towards a later departure of the UK from the European Union.

‘What of the 31st January 2020? An understanding of the progression of ‘escape’ is required. First there is an escape of individuals (signified by the Chilean Miner Rescue  in 2010), followed by an escape of a nation (Brexit) followed by a ‘global’ escape of the Body of Christ at the Rapture. The Chilean Miners escaped ‘physical’ death, the United Kingdom escapes ‘national’ death (loss of sovereignty) and the Body of Christ escapes ‘eternal’ death (the second death of Revelation 20:6) at the Rapture. Individual, then  national followed by concluding global is the progression (and signification) of ‘escape’, underpinned with a mathematical narrative of triangular numbers. ‘The Watch’ chapter in the book ‘Unlocking the Biblical Watch’ (UBW) explains this progression in much more detail.

‘Triangular numbers are used by the Lord to ‘label’ or ‘mark’ individuals or groups of people with whom He intends to intervene. One such triangular ‘labelling’ or ‘marking’ (again see UBW for details) is the triangular number ‘2080’. It is the final triangular number which relates to the United Kingdom. But first some background.

As a result of the Balfour Declaration (a letter which was arguably the tangible beginning of the re-establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948), God blessed the United Kingdom with Queen Elizabeth II who was crowned queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in 1953. Those who bless Israel reap a blessing according to the Abrahamic covenant. (Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”)

‘Significantly, Elizabeth was crowned on the 153rd day of 1953, namely the 2nd June, and in a year whose number contains the digits ‘1’, ‘5’ and ‘3’, in order. On this same day (2nd June 1953), important news came in that the commonwealth climber Sir Edmund Hilary had conquered Mount Everest (the highest mountain in the world). This news confirmed this day as a ‘high’ day in global history. Most importantly, however, God also marked the United Kingdom with the triangular number ‘153’ by embedding it into the date of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. Biblically, the number ‘153’ speaks of the completed church and her ‘escape’ at the Rapture (as explained in UBW). Through the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, this theme of ‘escape’ is strongly associated with the United Kingdom.

‘The year of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, ‘1953’, is a triangular number. As it happens, the next triangular number (in the mathematical series of triangular numbers) is ‘2016’ – the year of the Brexit referendum which triggered the ‘escape’ of the UK from national death (loss of sovereignty). Could the next triangular number (which follows ‘2016’ in the triangular number series) be significant? Yes, it is because it is the exact number of days between the Chilean Miner Rescue (at midnight!) on the 13th October 2010 and the Brexit Referendum on the 23rd June 2016. The number of days between these two events is exactly ‘2080’ days – ‘2080’ being the next mathematical triangular number after ‘2016’. The following diagram illustrates the relationship between these triangular numbers. Note that in mathematics, ‘1953′ is the 62nd triangular number, ‘2016′ is the 63rd triangular number and ‘2080′ is the 64th triangular number:

‘What is interesting is that this triangular number link (‘2080’), between the Chilean Miner rescue and the Brexit Referendum, opens up a divine opportunity for symmetry. If ‘2080’ days link the Chilean Miner rescue and the Brexit Referendum, could ’2080’ days link the completion of Brexit with the global ‘escape’ of the Body of Christ at the Rapture?

‘A possible date for the Rapture according to the biblical watch is the 13th October 2025. This possible date is arrived at by multiple independent biblical routes, (as detailed in UBW). If the symmetry of the triangular number ‘2080’ (in the above diagram) is to be fulfilled, what is the required ‘leave’ date for the UK to finally exit the EU? This date would be the 31st January 2020!

‘In this scenario, the number of days between the Brexit Referendum and the ‘Brexit Leave’ date is 1317 days. There are only 34 words in the original Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic text of the Bible, with a numerical value of 1317. This includes the Greek word for ‘revelation’ (an unveiling, uncovering or revealing) as well as the Greek words for ‘appearing’ and ‘last’. All of which are words which speak of (or relate to) the second coming of Christ which, for the church, will be at the Rapture. The diagram below illustrates this symmetry:

‘As an after-thought, out of all the triangular numbers in mathematics (which God may have chosen regarding this pattern and progression), why did He start off with the 62nd triangular number of ‘1953’? The answer lies in the Book of Daniel, because  Daniel understood by the books the number of the years (specified by the word of the Lord) in the first year of the reign of Darius the Mede:

Daniel 9:2 in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

‘When did Darius the Mede come to his throne? When he was 62 years old!

Daniel 5:31 And Darius the Mede received the kingdom, being about sixty-two years old.

‘There are more correlations regarding Daniel and Darius the Mede which are detailed in Unlocking the Biblical Watch.’

“Out of the mouths of babes” – Stephen Powell on rapper Kanye West’s example to preachers

Again, what ‘coincidental’ timing! Just after posting the previous I noticed a new entry on Prophetic Releasers community group sharing this by Stephen Powell:

Tap/click image for link to Stephen Powell Facebook (not in new window)


12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ”
14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
15 But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant
16 and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants you have perfected praise’?”
17 Then He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there. Continue reading

Fulfilled Prophecy #46: Praise song will be a Number 1 hit

After having heard the excellent news about the American rapper Kanye West’s decision to follow Jesus Christ, I espied this latest posted Tuesday on Emma Stark’s and Glasgow Prophetic Centre’s Facebooks about a prophetic word she brought last January.

Also, as it just so happens we’ve been noticing number 22 cropping up here and there – and then gone on to consider Bible numbers and mathematics, note the date on which  Emma brought this word – the 22nd!

Author tells me about watching numerically for Messiah’s Return

In our conversations this week about ‘watching’ our times according to Bible prophecy and his new book Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, Jonathan Hill tells me,

“As you know, I’m frequently considering dates and events and looking to discern their biblical relevance, as part of my ministry in the Body of Christ. The dates, which you graciously gave me a while back (of significant events in your life), often come to the surface more often than others! As such please bear with me over the next few paragraphs, as I think these thoughts may be important.

“Has the Body of Christ really considered what exactly the church is looking for in the biblical ‘watch’? Is just being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’ sufficient? The assertion from Jesus to the church at Sardis was to watch because the ‘hour of His return’ is ‘unexpected’ and not revealed on the surface of scripture. They were personally exhorted by Jesus to watch for His return (at the Rapture) otherwise He would come upon them as a thief. The ‘watch’ is therefore more than just about being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’ and specifically about the ‘hour of His return’.

“Revelation 3:3 (NKJV) Remember therefore, how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore, if you will not watch I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you”

“If the biblical ‘watch’ is more than just being ‘awake’, ‘alert’ and ‘vigilant’, what is it? This is the essence of the book ‘Unlocking the Biblical Watch’, because God has embedded (in the Bible) a simple mathematical pattern of triangular and pyramid numbers which perfectly depict God’s interventions across the ages.

“What is extraordinary is that these simple patterns are now appearing with pinpoint accuracy between globally witnessed events, especially those which relate to the transition of power away from the Gentiles in favour of Israel. Nebuchadnezzar’s seven times (Daniel 4:16) is up and currently in transitional closure with a short burst of anti-Christ at the end!

“So, Messiah’s command to watch must not be lightly esteemed. Biblically, the Lord has secrets (Amos 3:7, Daniel 2:22, Daniel 2:28) and scripture encourages (with ‘glory’, see Proverbs 25:2) the revelation of previously concealed truth. As such, all believers should consider the biblical watch. Alongside the spiritual gifts which the Lord has given to His church, let us not neglect that which the Lord has already placed in scripture. After all, spiritual gifts need to be weighed against scripture – not the other way around.

“Let me know what you think, I’d be very interested in your perspective. Above all else, be mightily encouraged in your work.”

I exclaim, “Ace, Jonathan!  Would you allow me to share all or part of your very valuable thoughts?  My reaction is, ‘Bang on!’

“As for the final paragraph’s ‘secrets’, please note a prophecy given me in final para of Why Write/blog? On 21 May 2009, renowned prophecy teacher Isabel Allum walked straight up to Nina and myself and divulged what she discerned of each of us. Of me,

“An impartation like Daniel had is going to come into you and you will start understanding the ‘riddles’ of the Lord in a different way – the gift of interpretation itself, as Daniel and Joseph had, is going to come to you and God is going to open up your understanding to hear from heaven.”

Then I update my author friend, “You may know that I’ve re-run blogs on your previous book and the two ‘escape’ situations as being part of a fulfillment of prophecy? I’ve now re-run my few on ‘watching’ as a lead-in to announcing your latest book, to be followed by its ‘Watch’ updates.”

He responds,

“Yes, I’ve noticed your rerun of earlier blogs, which have been excellent!  Also, very encouraging about your Daniel prophecy – the correlation of ‘understanding’ and ’62’, together with the ‘number of years’ of Daniel 9:2, is fascinating.

“There is more detail in ‘Unlocking the Biblical Watch’ on pages 297 to 300, because the Hebrew gematria of the 120 (itself an important triangular and pyramid number) satraps (see Daniel 6:1) which Darius the Mede sets over his whole kingdom, is ‘2016’ (the 63rd triangular number).

“As confirmation of relevance to the current Body of Christ, remember that Daniel is, in part, a type of the church. Where was Daniel when his three colleagues were ordered into the furnace (stoked up to 7 times its normal heat – Daniel 3:19 – read 7 years tribulation for Israel) by King Nebuchadnezzar?

“Daniel was nowhere to be seen because, in type, Daniel had been raptured before the Tribulation!”

So I cannot wait to get into the book….but it would make a good Christmas present?

Unlocking the Biblical Watch – new book by Jonathan R. Hill

In our considering principles behind use of numbers and associated basic mathematics in the Bible, my catching up with the following news is timely – I’m pleased to learn that author Jonathan R. Hill is finding his researches also connect into Time!

Here’s the proofreaders’ clear recommendation circulated for Jonathan’s new book:

‘In this new book Jonathan reinforces the straightforward, but profound, mathematical principles of triangular and pyramid numbers and how they help reveal and reinforce wonderful truths in the Bible, using the numerical equivalents for the letters in each word in the original Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible.

‘These principles were initially studied in his first book (on The Sign Miracles of John – RB: as herein) and the results were fascinating, revealing important concepts that are relevant for both the Church and Israel in these end times. They now lay a strong foundation for this ‘Biblical Watch for Messiah’s Return’. These numbers are used in the studies themselves and help us to understand the types involved, and also the time periods that connect the important events that are highlighted.

‘Also included in this book are details of and revelations about the Jubilee Cycle, the important and ‘high’ numbers that there are in Scripture (like ‘120’), the time of day of Christ’s resurrection, the reason Anna had to wait 84 years to see the Messiah, the importance of the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the Armistice in 1918, the World Economic Conference of 1933, the 9/11 attack in 2001, the rescue of the Chilean miners in 2010 and even Brexit!

‘Jonathan also shows how the ‘Key of David’ gives ‘understanding’ in God’s presence and what ‘leaven’ means for the Church today.

‘It truly is a book which explores and explains the concepts that are needed to study, and ‘watch’ for, Messiah’s (Jesus’) return at the Rapture for his Bride, the Church.

‘This book is, in my opinion, the most important Christian book for the Church in the first quarter of this 21st Century.

‘May I encourage you to order a copy (and also the previous one on the Sign Miracles, if you’ve not already got it) and be blessed?

‘Jonathan’s website JR Hill – Books has links to buy both books and also his ‘New Watch Events’ page (currently looking at the Brexit dates – RB: to be blogged soon with the author’s permission).

‘I have read both books out loud to Pat (as we have been proof-reading them). We have found that reading them to each other has really helped us both to understand the truths and the concepts they contain, and they truly leave us with hope for the future.

‘We commend this teaching to you.

‘Many blessings’

The Who, Why, When & What of Watching

In referring to the prophecy of our being able “to see clearly” God’s numbers – even for dates, times and monetary denominations – and briefly considering numerical aspects of the Bible, I’m republishing this blog issued in February 2018 because it leads into brand new material on all these matters and their relevance to the Return of Jesus Christ:

Recent (end-Jan 2018) reblogs of other authors’ references to a pre-Tribulation Rapture (one of eight possible eschatological scenarios) and beliefs about that possibly being mistaken – plus a theological blog’s discussion – has prompted me to revisit and expand upon one of this blog’s earliest entries – ‘Why Watch?’  It’s now time to consider who, why, when and what we are watching out for..:


You, me and everyone, especially those who believe in and follow Jesus Christ – HE is the WHO and thus the basic reason we should be watching.  If you’re not familiar with His life, ministry and status, or with the fact we can be in a close, loving relationship with Him, then dip into this blog’s brief outline at Do You Know Jesus?


For me, a spectacular, life-changing event in 1989 made watching very personal and connected into relevant, directive scripture. Then in 2008, wanting to check Jesus’ parable of the wheat and tares in Matthew 13, I opened my Bible and IT EXPLODED! and I heard

“This is ALL about to be fulfilled!”

Thus began my series of emails to friends and church leaders about prophecy, as told nine years ago this month in part one of  The Endgame Is Now In Play, wherein I wrote:

‘Jesus urged His disciples to look out for and observe signs of the times. Regarding their questions about His return at the end of this Age, the earliest Gospel account has Jesus stressing 7 times, “Watch…be alert…on your guard“ (Mark 13). Matthew 24 reports Jesus saying 4 times, “Watch…and when you see…” followed by the parables of the burglar and of the virgins > “Don’t be caught napping!” [Is the Church still asleep?] Luke’s account has, “Be always on the watch…” (Luke 21:36 and chapter 12 (NIV) has sections on watchfulness and interpreting the times. In each Gospel Jesus commands, Learn the lesson of the fig tree…”. Also, the Apostles went on to give more indicators (Acts 3:20-1, Hebrews 12:26-7, 2 Peter 3, 2 Timothy 3 and the first and second letters to the Thessalonians).’

It’s claimed that for every OT prophecy about Jesus Christ’s birth and life there’s seven to eight times as many about His eventual return or ‘Parousia’, also called ‘The Second Advent’ or ‘Second Coming’. I’m of the opinion the likelihood of that event sometime in our lifetime is rapidly increasing !

Jesus stressed the great importance of His return. Eg, His instruction to the four who’d been with Him from the outset of His mission is given at Mark 13:33-37 (NKJV):

Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.

Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming – in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning – lest, coming suddenly, he finds you sleeping! And what I say to you, I say to all, ‘Watch!’.”

That’s why I’m watching and, believer or not, you too are included, as can be clearly understood from Jesus’ words: “I say to ALL…

How can we be sure?

You may object and say, “But even if that’s an accurate quotation it’s only guesswork”. That is, prophecies don’t always come to pass.  In answer and in synopsis only [more details here], I therefore offer the following key to foretelling the future.:

We’re privileged to learn what Almighty God has decided is to happen. He shared his plans with a select number of ancient sages, or prophets, over a long period that started 29 centuries ago, and several centuries before Christ. Amidst extensive instructions He told the prophet Isaiah:

“For I am God and there is no other, I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand and I shall do all My pleasure’…” (Isaiah 46:9-10 NKJV)

In fact, some years before Isaiah the first of the ‘writing prophets’ had received a distinct word about God’s intention to divulge His plans. This is recorded in Amos’ scroll at the seventh verse of the third chapter (in modern notation):

“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”

Next, we learn when we’re to be watching for whatever’s coming…continue reading >>

Fulfilled Prophecy #38.2 & 3: Biblical ‘escape’ numbers

Those readers having time and inclination to delve deeper into mathematical aspects of the Bible in its Hebrew and Greek languages may wish to consider an application of Jonathan Hill’s thesis to two globally significant ‘escapes’. These were first published here last November at:

May the Lord open our minds to deeper revelation and comprehension of ‘His numbers’.
