Can science explain everything?

Thank you Ruth for introducing and summarising another scientist’s account of a significant ‘God-incident’ intruding within three peoples’ lives on the same journey…

Science and Belief

A mathematician, a judge and an ambassador walked onto a train. It sounds like the beginning of a joke but the mathematician was John Lennox, who is well-known for his lectures about Christianity, and his new friends were completely serious about their investigation of his beliefs. We don’t know what happened in the end, but all three of them clearly recognised the significance of the conversation.

7 years ago today: Welcome – (now) Thank you

On the 7th anniversary of the launch of this blog on 21st November 2011, let’s look at what the very first visitors found:

WELCOME

‘Hello, I’m Richard Barker.

‘Welcome to my musings about what’s going on in the world and I trust this blog may help you gain some insights. Indeed, what on earth is going to happen next?

‘You may find some of my ideas challenging, even outlandish! For instance, come on an imaginary trip in a ‘time machine’ and, later, receive unusual instructions on how to tell the time!

‘Some pertinent points from my past appear in my Bio Info, where you’ll learn about a seminal work that was to serve as a fascinating foundation for anyone’s appreciation of Bible prophecy

‘Reading The Invisible Hand in the mid-1980s opened me up to a new dimension to events in the Middle East indicative of things not being as they seem. I was amazed to learn they’re of major Biblical significance! Bemused, therefore, I began to watch…:

‘Unlocking the Sign Miracles of John’ update (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

The first part of this mini-series on the prophetic word about 2018 being when the Lord imparts to His prophets the ability to see and understand ‘My Numbers’, also refers to these earlier blogs on that topic:

‘Look inside’ (Amazon) by clicking title’s hyperlink

Those blogs are based upon a fascinating book by Jonathan R Hill entitled, Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John which, he informs me, has since “matured through a series of revisions (each of which) is marked at the back of the book”, adding…

“It has been an extraordinary journey in writing this material and I consider that the Lord has been holding back significant distribution until the book is ready. I believe we are now at that point.”

During that discussion a couple of months ago, Jonathan gave permission to reprint the preface to his book for my readers’ information. It reads:

Preface

The Bible speaks of several upcoming global events which occur at the end of the Christian Age including the ‘catching-up’ or rapture of the believing church, a period of terrible tribulation for the nation of Israel followed by the second coming of Messiah. This book presents a unique chronological framework for these events, unveiled within the eight sign miracles of John’s Gospel. Each sign miracle targets a facet of God’s concluding work in the consummation of this age, for either the Body of Christ or the nation of Israel. Underpinning this framework is an elegant, figurative and radix [1] independent mathematical transformation or pattern, derived from the numerical values of key words and phrases in the autographic Hebrew and Greek text of scripture.

As a professional computer programmer, I’ve been involved in patterns, methodologies and code throughout my entire career of 33 years to date. Observing and capturing patterns, whether business, scientific or financial, and then logically implementing them into modern software, is what I do.

For many years I have been observing another pattern of typological and numeric design within scripture. The content of this pattern is spiritually intense because God has self-authenticated His authorship of the Bible in a unique and deterministic way. Moreover, this biblical pattern, which comes into focus through the sign miracles recorded by John, holds a vital message for the Body of Christ and the nation of Israel. Christians and believing Israel must prepare for meeting the Bridegroom and Messiah respectively.

I have worked hard at making the types and the maths as intelligible and as simple as possible. The book is a progression of revelation building chapter upon chapter. As part of the authorship process, custom software has been written, to capture and validate the Greek and Hebrew numerical values from the autographic text. The Appendix lists every Greek and Hebrew numerical value quoted and breaks down the calculation into its constituent parts, giving the reader full transparency of the process.

Footnotes (at the base of each page) are used extensively for reference material and scriptures. Numbers over the value of ten are written as digits rather than words. Lastly, emphasis added to scriptures by highlighting, is not part of the original script but is intended to draw attention to a certain part of the verse.

Jonathan Hill, West Sussex

[1] Radix or ‘base’ is the number of unique digits, including zero, used to represent a number counting system. Base 10 (decimal) is the most common radix and uses ten digits from 0 through to 9. Another well-known radix is base 2 (binary) which uses two digits, 0 and 1.

God’s numbers in July’s blood moon (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

This third guest post by Jonathan R Hill continues with the fulfillment of the prophetic word for 2018 of the gift of understanding special numbers, as used by the Lord and  reviewed here. This article recaps previous points to introduce very compelling facts pertaining to modern British history: 

BLOOD MOON 27th JULY 2018

The celestial event of this lunar eclipse is warning of a coming divine judgement upon a godless Europe.

A record-registering heatwave across Europe, breaks in the UK on the day of this blood red moon. The UK’s nationwide evening thunderstorms and rain, halt the intense heat. The heatwave across Europe speaks of the heat of divine judgement as confirmed by the red colour of the moon.

The United Kingdom has been marked by the Lord for interventional dealings and, as will be explained, these dealings of the Lord with the UK, are regarding ‘escape’. In scripture, the Lord uses triangular numbers to mark individuals or bodies of people with whom He will interact. The triangular number 153 is a prime example as representing the completed church at the point of rapture or ‘escape’.

Queen Elizabeth II was crowned queen of the United Kingdom and all commonwealth  countries in 1953, a number which is the 62nd triangular number and in which the digits ‘1’, ‘5’ and ‘3’ appear. Significantly, Elizabeth was crowned on the 153rd day of 1953, namely the 2nd June. Moreover, on this day, news comes in that the commonwealth climber Sir Edmund Hilary has conquered Mount Everest, confirming this day as a ‘high’ day in global history. In this way and by His grace, God has marked our nation with 153 or ‘escape’. The true personal faith of our sovereign queen has acted as a testimony of God’s involvement.

From what is the UK escaping? The next triangular number which mathematically follows 1953 is 2016. This is the year of the Brexit Referendum which marks the ‘escape’ of the UK out of the European Union. The earlier ‘escape’ of 33 individual Chilean Miners was the first ‘escape’ witnessed by the world. The second is a national escape out of the EU block of 28 nations with 5 in accession (33 nations), also witnessed by the world. Both escapes signify the global escape of the church at the Rapture. Individual, followed by national concluding with global, appears to be the divine signification of ‘escape’. The number of days between these ‘escape’ events is important because it contains the relevant triangular numbers. In the case of Brexit and the Chilean Miner rescue, there are 33 x 63 separating days, where 33 is the biblical number of ‘living witness’ and the 63rd triangular number is 2016, the year of the Brexit Referendum.

The relevance to this discussion is the number of days between the blood red moon of July 27th, 2018 (BRM) and the Brexit Referendum, which is 5 x 153. The number 5 denotes the grace of God upon the nation of the UK, in permitting an ‘escape’ from the EU and the upcoming judgement. BRM is also 12 x 3066 days from the Balfour Declaration regarding the restoration of the nation of Israel. Perhaps this British declaration somehow factors with the divine grace gifted to the UK. The number 12 represents the governmental perfection of Israel and 3066 is the Hebrew gematria of Isaiah 53:10, which speaks of Messiah seeing His seed (believing Israel) in the Millennial Kingdom.

Many in the UK are unable to observe this celestial warning, because of obstructing cloud cover of the breaking weather. In a sense the UK has escaped the ‘heat of judgement’. In contrast, the blood red moon continues to shine down on mainland Europe.

RB Footnote: Regarding exceptional global temperatures and wildfires, it’s worth noting the prophetic insights within the second letter of the  Apostle Peter, wherein the third chapter begins:

‘Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of [a]us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and [b]perdition of ungodly men.

8 ‘But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward [c]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

10 ‘But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be [d]burned up11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,  12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.’ (NKJV)

God’s numbers in the Chilean miners’ rescue (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

We continue with the fulfillment of the revelation of “My Numbers”, especially ’33’, with another guest post from Jonathan R Hill in his updating of an earlier paper. Note it closes by referring to the importance of the date of World War One’s Armistice.

Of personal interest is ’17’ because on my 71st birthday on 22nd Sept I wondered if it may have any meaning and the thought dropped into mind to reverse it – ah, back to being a teenager! Then I dug into Jonathan’s writing and noted it does have significance – and I’d totally forgotten about having inserted ’17 Year Cycles’ from Erik Hadik’s site into Cycles and the Bible. So be mightily blessed as you read about…

THE CHILEAN MINERS’ RESCUE

On the 5th August 2010, a mine collapsed in the Atacama Desert of Chile in South America trapping 33 miners. The extraordinary ordeal of these ordinary men separated from their families, captured the hearts of the world and commanded the attention of the global media. On the 13th October 2010, 69 days later and beginning just after midnight, all 33 miners were lifted-up in quick succession from their rocky tomb 2000 feet [1] below the surface. This victory over death was witnessed by the world.

The symbolism of this escape is of biblical proportion. The rescue of these men truly typifies a dispensational event of the highest order and the world must take note. As this short paper will show, the numbers involved with this escape align with biblical prophecy concerning the physical resurrection of dead. Just as Jesus rose from a rocky tomb aged 33, so all believers in Messiah will be raised future from now. These 33 miners who were constrained to die but rose to life through 2000 feet of rock (symbolic of 2000 years), signify this future event.

Brexit – the Escape of a Nation (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

Following my introduction to Fulfilled Prophecy #38, this guest post by Jonathan R Hill written two years ago brings intriguing insights into Britain’s possible ‘rescue’ out of the EU.  As promised in my preamble on Hallow’een in Declarations of the Lord’s Glory over Britain, we learn about the holy meaning of number 33. Emphases are mine:

BREXIT – THE ESCAPE OF A NATION

WHAT’S AT STAKE

According to the US news network NBC, the following is at stake:

“In short, the future of Europe and the global order. Britain is the EU’s second-largest economy, has a powerful military and exerts outsize influence in global affairs; it would be difficult to interpret ‘Brexit’ as anything other than abandonment of the EU by one of its most important members.” (Brexit Vote: What your need to know about Britain’s Referendum on leaving the EU]

THE SIGNIFICANCE

Would the event of Brexit be witnessed and marvelled upon by the world with similar media attention allocated to the escape of the Chilean Miners in 2010? Global interest is certainly high and rising as a realignment of the global order is forthcoming.

There may be a logical progression of signs here.:

  • First, the escape of men,
  • secondly, the escape of a nation and
  • finally, the world-wide escape of the Body of Christ at the Rapture.

The CM rescue was marked with the number 33 which is the biblical number of bearing witness. The 33 vertebrae of the backbone point every fortunate human-being heaven ward towards the current location of the Son of God – in other words, ‘He went that way!’ These 33 bones also contain the messages from the head (typically in heaven) to the body.

The EU block is currently 28 nations with 5 in accession (33 nations) – International Economic Relations

Does the escape of the UK from the 33 nation block of the EU, following the escape of 33 Chilean Miners, channel a message from heaven to earth that points or witnesses to the next progressive escape – one that will be world-wide?

THE TIMING

The number of days between the Chilean Miner rescue (13th October 2010) and the British EU referendum (23rd June 2016) is 2079, a number precisely factored by 33 and 63 (33 x 63 = 2079). The number 33 as a factor is clearly relevant but not significant unless the number 63 has a bearing. Interestingly, the 63rd triangular number is 2016.(Triangular numbers being used by our Father to signify important events – RB note: see foot of F/P #38 for diagrammatic explanation of these numbers.)

Jonathan Hill
8th June 2016

This may remind readers of The Lifeguard, a vision received by Dave Hood.  Next, we’ll look at that historical rescue which, unlike that in Thailand this year, was fatality-free, as well as go into some depth on number 33 and others. 

Fulfilled Prophecy #38: 2018 – ‘seeing’ God’s Numbers

Towards the close of October last year Leisa Ebere started receiving a series of UK Nationwide Prophetic Circuit Messages, the first of which is for 2018 and for 2019. It begins:

“2018, I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly ‘My Numbers’, such as dates, times and even denominations of money as I loose significant detail and even finance, which will be diverted into the hands and hearts of the men and women, who will use this information and resource to bring about the freedom of the captives of the human race.”

I’d like to share what’s come to my personal attention on the underlined elements of this promise in a few guest posts, with the expectation of further developments.

BACKGROUND:

In 2016 I began a series of overviews on the growing rapprochement between science and scripture and noted a most amazing ‘coincidence’ between my Summer reading and a physicist’s blog on Pure, Breathtaking Mathematical Beauty. Both focused upon ‘The Euler Identity’, and I’d read about how that formula lies hidden within the Hebrew and Greek of the first verses of the first chapters of Genesis and of the Gospel written by John!  So I blogged on this news in Astonishing Mathematics; the conjunction between Creation, Gospel and Science?

That last post introduced Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John by Jonathan Hill, with a continuation posted last April, soon after having re-blogged Joanne Rolston’s Number 153, Signs & Symbols (in Jonathan’s book) and my more detailed coverage in A Post-Resurrection Miracle as a ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed.

Mulling over this one night, I now realise that this mathematical ‘jewel’ also has its own Hebrew/Greek relationship buried within itself!

In fact, it’s shown within a power to the natural logarithmic growth of all living things, expressed by base ‘e’.

The ‘Euler Identity’ features Greek letter ‘pi’, which is the ratio of all circles’ circumference to diameter, which can be expressed as ‘vulgar fraction’ 22 / 7.

This speaks to me of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet and of the Biblically significant number 7

UPDATE:

I was unable to inform Jonathan of those blogs but pleasantly surprised in August to get this email from him, published with his kind permission:

‘I came across your blog recently and wanted to thank you for your positive comments regarding ‘Unlocking Sign Miracles of John’. This book was a significant project and it is a great blessing to see other believers, like yourself, engaging with the work.

‘Having recently read a number of your blogs, I am particularly interested in the prophetic aspects regarding the UK, especially Brexit. For many reasons, including my recent deeper studies of the mathematical narrative of scripture and the testimony of…

‘I believe the Lord has revealed a fundamental methodology, based in scripture, which is a prophetic gate or frame of understanding. Brexit appears to be part of this framework of ‘escape’. I know this sounds fantastical…I would greatly appreciate your perspective on Brexit and broad view on geopolitics or anything else you may deem relevant.’

A few weeks later we met over coffee and I learned why Jonathan takes particular interest in these things.

As a professional computer programmer he’s been involved in patterns, methodologies and code throughout his career of 33 years. (Note number is mentioned in Declarations of God’s Glory over Britain on All Hallow’s Eve, but much more on this later.)  It’s in his nature, therefore, to observe and capture patterns in business, scientific or financial systems and implement them logically into modern software.  What’s more, throughout those years Jonathan’s observed another pattern of typological and numerical design within scripture, and submitted his findings to to his professional peers for scrutiny and discussion.

Jonathan added this highly intriguing and very personal observation to his email:

‘PS. There are 8103 days between the beginning of your blog on 21st November 2011 and 14th September 1989 (an important personal date for you). Interestingly, 3 (divinity) x 2701 (creation, Genesis 1:1 and triangular number) = 8103.

‘If this was the date you were ‘born again’ by reaching out to Jesus, then the Lord has marked the beginning of your blog with His miracle of divine new creation within you. (2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.) Also 21:11 is the important scripture reference in John’s gospel regarding the 153 fish.’

So I was well and truly’ God-smacked’!

Next, we’ll look at his thesis on numbers and being ‘rescued’ from the EU in view of the exceptionally critical timing, as well as the Chilean Miners’ rescue in 2010 and this year’s blood moon.

“Make your preparations – I am sending My Word, My Sword!”

fire sword

In gratitude to unknown artist of this splendid work

Thank you to Ben Kay for informing me of this prophetic word brought to his attention at Plymouth’s Day of Prayer for the UK organised by Lydia Fellowship International on 8th September. Emailing me Friday 14th he writes, Des Branagh attended the day of prayer and realised that a prophetic word he received from the Lord on 27 August 2018 may have been relevant to this time of prayer. However, he was hesitant to share the word during the meeting but instead forwarded the word afterwards, which immediately resonated with my heart.”

Ben advises this word has been tested in Des’ local church and so permission has been given to share it more widely (text colour and image RB’s):

 

Make Your Preparations – A Prophetic Word given to Des Branagh at 3am on 27th August 2018

You have seen the Earthquakes.
You have seen the Forest fires.
You have seen the Storms.
You have seen the Droughts.
You have seen the Floods.

I have been shaking the earth.
I have been sending arrows of fire to the forests.
I have been calling the winds and stirring your comforts.
I have been sending my chariots to collect and transport the waters of the deep.
My chariots have with wings traversed the mountain ranges, and at my command they have deposited the waters of the deep to your lands to cause flood and chaos.
I have been changing the highways of the sky to block the natural gentle rains and I have allowed your lands to suffer droughts.

All of this you have seen and experienced yet you continue with your eyes closed and your ears deaf to my warnings.

My written word has been ignored, my faithful ones have been trodden over beaten and martyred even to this very day.
The nations of Europe and the High Councils of the EU have trashed My word. With their arrogance they have made decrees that fly in My face and contradict My word. They have called what I declared as evil – good, and what I have declared good, they have called evil. They have applauded homosexuality and same-sex marriages.
Know this – I have seen and I have heard!

I have seen your evil immorality.
I have seen your murderous hands at work in the destruction of the unborn child.
Know also this – I have heard their defenceless cries and I continue to hear their cries!
I know each name of these precious little ones who are made in MY IMAGE.
Each defenceless cry is another attack on MY IMAGE as they have been ripped from their mother’s womb. I have HEARD THEIR CRIES.

To the Nations of Europe:
Germany – you have murdered My people. The apple of My eye.
France – you have removed Me from your children. No longer am I revered in your schools and homes.
Italy – I see the evil committed within the ranks of your religious priests. I detest these deeds.

To the faithful – I call you to Battle, I call you to take hold of the Sword of the Spirit, and to pray for your leaders. Pray that they see! Pray that they hear! Pray that they will understand and call their people to repentance!

Britain My hand rests on you.
I have made clear to you through signs on the earth of My anger because of your rebellion and sinfulness.
Through prophecy I have exhorted you in your churches to walk in My word and I have exhorted you to make preparation for the days that I am about to bring upon you.
I now have this to say to you:-
I AM SENDING MY WORD! MY SWORD!
There is not anything that can come against My word. There is no weapon that is formed, no kingdom more powerful that can overthrow MY WORD. With insects I brought down the might of Egypt.
I AM SENDING MY WORD and MY WORD WILL ACCOMPLISH ALL THAT I SEND IT TO DO!
IT WILL NOT RETURN NOR WILL I RECALL IT! UNTIL IT HAS FULFILLED MY PURPOSES.

Make your preparations for I am coming quickly.
Britain – I remember your zeal for Me in times past. How you took My word to China to India to African and other far off places.
I remember how you did not follow abominations of Rome. You have within your borders men and women of faith even in this day. So I will stand with you in your battle.
Make your preparations for I AM COMING!

Prophecies on the spiritual significance of hurricanes striking the USA – part 2

In my first blog of 2012, Points to Ponder 2011-12 and Biblical, Historical, Financial Cycles I covered William Koenig’s investigation into the work of financial analyst Eric Hadik.  I’ve since referred to this accredited Christian journalist at the White House for his coverage of the Middle-East from a thoroughly biblical perspective. We now need to consider this in some depth:

In considering connections between President Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ for Israel-Palestine and Hurricane Florence for last Friday’s Inside The White House report, Bill  returns to his prime mission and discovery as a ‘watcher’ (emphasis mine)

‘Virtually every major hurricane since the beginning of the Israeli-Palestinians’ peace process in Madrid, Spain, held from October 30-November 1, 1991, have corresponded to White House involvement in Israel’s land. These have all occurred at the time U.S. presidents were actively pressuring and/or inducing Israel to make peace with the Palestinians by agreeing to give up large parts of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem for promises of peace and security.’

He itemises many things demonstrating President Trump is the best friend Israel has ever had in the White House, as well as giving a timeline of his administration’s peace efforts and public comments in the last two weeks whilst Florence developed. Bill also notes Trump will now have been president during four of the costliest hurricanes in US history, including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria during the month of Elul in 2017.

Extracts From This Month’s Timeline:
  • Tues 4th – US Ambassador to UN Haley: Trump’s Israeli-Palestinian ‘deal of the century’ can happen if Abbas comes to the table – Fox News – Tropical Storm Florence became Hurricane Florence
  • Wed 5th – Emir of Kuwait visits White House as Florence was continuing to develop. Last year on September 7, President Trump had a joint press conference with the emir as Hurricane Irma was developing into a record-setting Atlantic Hurricane…Florence becomes major hurricane as Category 3 storm. At of 125 mph is five mph away from Cat 4.
  • Thur 6th – Remarks by President Trump in Rosh Hashanah National Press Call with Jewish Faith Leaders and Rabbis; committed to an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal that he thinks can be made – White House transcript
  • Sat 8th – Special Envoy Jason Greenblatt presents details of the Thinking Behind the Mideast Peace Plan – JNS (Tasked by Trump to help reach the “deal of the century,” Greenblatt serves as one of Trump’s top Middle East envoys and has herculean task to help negotiate peace plan between Israelis and Palestinians.
  • Sun 9th – late afternoon Florence became a massive Hurricane 4 storm.
  • Mon 10th – Closure of the PLO Office in Washington is an attempt to force Palestinians to peace talks https://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2018/09/285812.htm
  • Mon 10th Sept John Bolton at the Federalist Society speaks against International Criminal Court and defends Israel (C-Span)
  • Wed 12th – Envoy Greenblatt’s Twitter comments on Trump peace plan.
  • Wed 12th – shift in Florence’s path is ‘bizarre’ could bring ‘catastrophic flooding’ to Southeast – ranks as one of weirdest hurricane/tropical storm tracks! (Part 1  has details)

Bill concludes on the delivery of the ‘peace plan’: ‘Originally, President Trump was to present his plan to the UN on Sept. 25. Haley said last week that there is not a specific date; it may be later. Doesn’t mean he still won’t. Something is up in the heavenlies.’

He notes that ‘Isaac’ has become a hurricane and heading toward the Lesser Antilles. Last time a storm named Isaac formed was the day the Republican Platform Committee endorsed two state plans in August 2012 and caused the 2012 Republican Convention to cancel their first day.

Prophecies on the spiritual significance of hurricanes striking the USA – part 1

The Weather Channel: why climatology doesn’t have much of a say in Florence’s unusual track (click image for link).

Not following news programmes over our long weekend other than for a quick-scan of William Koenig’s newsfeed, I did however notice one about Hurricane Florence making a ‘bizarre’ change of course approaching America’s eastern seaboard.

This curious fact is reminiscent of the profound prophetic word Revd Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2012 about the special significance of Hurricane Sandy in changes the Lord is bringing to the influence of Christian history and giving a new spiritual direction and changing the course and identities of nations. The last part, on returning the UK and USA to their national identities, was unwittingly announced years later by President-elect Donald Trump (see Fulfilled Prophecy #15).

So now I’m back at my desk, let’s walk through a few related items in reverse order that have popped up. The latest come from Veronika West, which you may wish to share for purposes of prayer and intercession:

1 – the latest visionary word she posted approx 8am today (note: important clarification re the Tribulation of Bible prophecy):

A WORD OF SOBER WARNING: I SAW 7 MIGHTY WHIRLWINDS SIT UPON THE PALM OF HIS HAND AND THEN BEING RELEASED UPON THE NATIONS!

‘Last night just after midnight I was woken suddenly by a what I can only describe as a vision/dream it was very short and to the point.

‘In this vision/dream I saw the two hands of God coming together and being brought up to his mouth and then I saw Him blow forth into his closed hands and then He opened them and a GREAT WHIRLWIND sat upon the palm of His hand. Now As I looked at the Whirlwind sitting upon His hand suddenly I saw the Whirlwind begin to lift up and move forward and then I saw the Whirlwind being released upon the Nations of the earth. As I stayed Watching intently I saw again the hands of God come together and I watched as He blew into them and yet again another Whirlwind was formed and it sat upon the palm of His hand, I watched as the Whirlwind grew in size and in great power as it sat upon His hand then I watched as the Whirlwind once again lifted up and it was released upon the Nations. Now I watched in the vision this taking place “7 times”, then I looked and I saw 7 MIGHTY WHIRLWINDS moving upon the earth and then I heard these words,

“MY WHIRLWINDS COME TO AWAKEN THE SLEEPING AND STIFF-NECKED NATIONS, MY WHIRLWINDS COME TO MAKE WAY, MY WHIRLWINDS COME TO SCATTER, TO SHAKE, TO SEPARATE, TO SIFT AND SHIFT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, FOR THE DAYS ARE COMING WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS WILL CRY OUT “THESE ARE THE DAYS OF ELIJAH”, BUT THE WICKED WILL CRY OUT “THESE ARE THE DAYS OF NOAH” AND MANY SHALL LOOK FOR A WAY OF ESCAPE AND FIND NONE!”

‘Suddenly I woke up and found myself praying fervently in the Spirit, as I began to inquire of the Lord again I heard the Spirit say, “THE WHIRLWINDS OF MY SPIRIT WILL GATHER THE WHEAT AND SCATTER THE TARES, THE WHIRLWINDS OF MY SPIRIT WILL CAUSE A GREAT SHAKING, SIFTING AND SHIFTING TO TAKE PLACE IN THE NATIONS, WATCH! FOR A DIVINE DISRUPTION HAS NOW BEEN RELEASED UPON THE NATIONS”!

‘Then it was quickened to me by the Holy Spirit the Word I gave concerning the USA. Please read and PRAY!! (A Word for the USA refers)

‘PS: I DO NOT BELIEVE that this is speaking of the Great Tribulation, but rather this is speaking about the GREAT SHAKING that is now taking place in the Nations. THIS IS THE HOUR OF A GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING UPON THE EARTH. I see and feel THE WHOLE EARTH IS BEING PURGED AND PURIFIED….!’

Whirlwind

2 – Note especially the graphical allusion, which I’ve underlined in Veronika’s previous posted last night:

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…; WATCH! FIRST THE SHARP SICKLE OF TRIUMPH NOW THE SHARP SICKLE OF DIVINE JUSTICE AND JUDGEMENT SHALL FLY ACROSS THE NATION”, says God…!

‘While in Worship this morning as I was praying for the Nations of the Earth suddenly I clearly heard the Spirit of God say, “Daughter TELL THE NATION OF AMERICA TO GET READY, TELL THEM TO WATCH AND PRAY! FIRST THE SICKLE OF TRIUMPH NOW THE SICKLE OF DIVINE JUSTICE AND JUDGEMENT SHALL FLY ACROSS THE NATION, TELL MY PEOPLE TO BE PREPARED FOR THAT WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN AND THAT WHICH I HAVE PROMISED WILL NO LONGER TARRY BUT SURELY IT SHALL NOW COME TO PASS IN THIS NATION, FOR EVEN NOW MY GOVERNMENTAL HAND IS MOVING UPON THE WHITE HOUSE, UPON THE HOUSES OF CONGRESS AND UPON THE COURTS OF JUSTICE, WATCH! AS MY SPIRIT OF TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD COMES LIKE A SHARP SICKLE MOVING SWIFTLY, SEVERELY AND SUDDENLY UPON THE HEADS OF THE WICKED, LISTEN! FOR THE SOUND OF RIGHTEOUS RETRIBUTION WILL BE HEARD GOING FORTH ACROSS THE LAND, WATCH AND PRAY BELOVED, FOR THOSE WHO HAVE VIOLATED MY LAWS AND MY STATUES AND THOSE WHO HAVE KILLED THE UNBORN AND THOSE WHO HAVE BOWED DOWN TO THE IDOL OF BAAL IN THIS NATION WILL NOW BE GATHERED UP LIKE RIPE GRAPES ON THE VINE AND THEY SHALL BE TRODDEN UNDER-FOOT, WATCH AS THE SHARP SICKLE OF MY JUSTICE AND JUDGEMENT NOW FLIES FORTH ACROSS THE NATION OF AMERICA”!

‘Friends, when I heard those words a powerful vision opened up before me where I saw a golden sickle coming out of the heavens and begin to fly forth across the land of America. Now as I watched the sharp sickle fly, suddenly the Holy Spirit quickened to me a powerful word and vision I received in July 2016 just a few months before the Presidential Elections. In that vision I too saw a sickle fly across the Nation, it was the “SICKLE OF TRIUMPH”. The Spirit of God showed me in that powerful vision the face of Donald Trump engraved upon the sharp sickle and I was shown that a GREAT SHIFTING AND SIFTING was about to take place over the Nation. PLEASE SEE WORD; “SICKLE OF TRIUMPH”;’

4 – Friday’s late-night report Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House, quoted two noteworthy news items from Wednesday, as follows (emphases mine):

Hurricane Florence path shift ‘bizarre,’ could bring ‘catastrophic flooding’ to Southeast (Source: USA Today – Sept 12)

‘The weird saga of Hurricane Florence, which has already carved an unprecedented path across the Atlantic, is forecast to persist with a strange stall and trek along the Southeast coast.

Instead of roaring ashore and quickly heading inland and weakening, as most storms do, Hurricane Florence should instead “stall near the coast and then parallel southwestward toward Georgia,” Weather Channel meteorologist Greg Postel said. “I’ve never seen anything like this.”

‘AccuWeather meteorologist Marshall Moss said Florence’s track is unique. “It was located farther north in the Atlantic than any other storm to ever hit the Carolinas, so what we’re forecasting is unprecedented,” Moss said.

‘Also, most storms coming into the Carolinas tend to move northward, and this storm looks like it’s going to stall over the region, Moss added.’

Hurricane Florence Joins the Ranks of Weirdest Hurricane and Tropical Storm Tracks (Source: Weather Channel – Sept 12)

‘Florence’s path has already been a weird one and it’s forecast to get stranger through the end of this week.

‘Many hurricanes follow very clear tracks, for example, a curve around the south and west sides of the Bermuda-Azores high in the Atlantic Basin, or just a straight buzzsaw through the Caribbean Sea. In these cases, the atmosphere’s steering flow is strong and persistent enough to keep the hurricane on a steady path. Forecast tracks of those are, straightforward.

‘Then, you have others like Florence.:

Late last week Florence was in a spot that’s typically far enough north for a hurricane to curve out to sea and not impact the United States. In fact, no tropical storm or hurricane in recorded history has passed within 100 miles of Florence’s location last Friday and still made a United States landfall.’

Also that day, MSNBC’s meteorologist Bill Karins gave a warning of a ‘big change’ in the storm, as reported over here in depth by the Daily Express.

Even more astonishing than all this are William Koenig’s observations over the last three decades of a correlation between severe storms and every US administration’s interference with the land of Israel. We’ll consider this in Part 2 >>

The mystery of the seven stars

Thank you Jo for this heavenly scriptural meditation. May all who read be deeply blessed…

The Kingdom

It’s winter here in New Zealand and Matariki, the Maori New Year.  Matariki is marked by the appearance of the Pleiades Star Cluster.  In the night sky, the Pleiades can be spotted with the naked eye as a dim cluster of stars above Orion’s left shoulder.

Matariki-southernFor the Maori, Matariki literally means “eyes of God” (Mata Ariki) or “little eyes” (Matariki.)  They’re not far wrong, for the prophet Zechariah, writing about his vision of a lampstand with seven lamps, tells of the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth.

“Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone in the hand of Zerubbabel?” Zechariah 4:10

Job 38:31-32 declares that only the Lord can ‘bind the chains of the beautfiul Pleiades’ and bring them forth in their season.

Amazing geometrical symmetry of Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1 (cont’d)

Now, where’d I got to a fortnight ago today…my drafting this suddenly interrupted upon spotting that what I was doing had gone public!

That Thursday, I’d kept seeing a weird status displayed across all open tabs of the two browsers I keep open. It took ages to update screens when visiting any site as cursors constantly rotated like spinning tops, instead of letting the tabs stop at a normal, stable display.

Also, I’d been getting unusual delays in saving work, even at 35M/s broadband. Maybe cross-talk between proxy servers had changed a status setting as I was saving and the draft got into the public domain. Maybe it arose from heightened cyber-security agencies’ activity against Russian interference/denial of service attacks in response to recriminations on their role in chemical attacks in England and Syria. Only once during many years blogging has a draft been accidentally published – and this time it was just as annoying!

Fortunately, I’d got to the end of saying how Hebrew and Greek alphabets can be used numerically. Now let’s continue:

LETTERS = NUMBERS : SENTENCES = SUMS & TOTALS = SHAPES & PATTERNS.

Previously, we learned about the astonishing inclusion of mathematical constants of ‘pi’ and the exponential form ‘e‘ – ratios of circles’ circumference/diameter ratio; the base of natural logarithms and rate of growth shared by all growing processes – each within the first verse of Genesis and John respectively, as revealed when applying the same mathematical operation of multiplication and division to their letters and words, NO MATTER IN WHICH ALPHABET; that is, using this ‘conversion’ ratio:

[(All letter values multiplied together) x (Number of letters)] / [Numerical values of all words multiplied together) x (Number of words)]; or as Dr Paul Bluer in Bible Maths:

Jonathan R Hill writes on page 39 of Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John,

‘Apply this ratio to Genesis 1:1 and ‘pi’ is revealed accurate to four decimal places. Apply the same ratio to John 1:21 and ‘e‘ is revealed, again accurate to four decimal places. Remember that Genesis and John were penned by two different authors in two different languages, hundreds of years apart (if not over a thousand: RB) These fundamental scientific and mathematical constants are markedly embedded within the two creation verses of scripture. Not only are they powerful witness to the creation of the heavens and of the earth but also to the One who created. In this way, the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible are authenticated as the authoritative media of God’s Word – as God Himself could have placed these mathematical constants there. No other explanation is possible.’ (Emphasis mine)

Verses:
  • ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’ (Genesis 1:1)
  • ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’ (John 1:1)
GEOMETRICAL SYMMETRY

In addition to the above, an exciting geometrical and, therefore, optical relationship exists between those two verses when all their letters have been changed to numbers and added up!

Then, using the principle of number triangles outlined in Post-Resurrection miraculous catch of 153 fish, the totals calculated for Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1 can be regarded as snooker balls, or small squares, and positioned into geometrical shapes. The sum for the value of Greek letters of John 1:1 forms a perfect plinth, or trapezium, which exactly fits the triangular number that can be formed by the sum of the value of Hebrew letters in Genesis 1:1, viz:

The sum of Greek letter values is precisely 3,627 and the sum of Hebrew letter values is 2,701, which forms a perfect equilateral triangle (as erected by the construction of a Vesica Piscis, shown in that post). Each of its sides consists of 73 small squares that represent one unit in the ‘conversion’ value of alphabetical letters. It’s noteworthy that 73 is also the numerical value of the Hebrew word for ‘wisdom’! Furthermore, there are scriptures that assert the world was created upon wisdom, for example:

    • Book of Proverbs – ‘The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens’ (3:19).
    • Prophet Jeremiah – ‘He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom. (10:12).

John 1:1 reveals that Jesus was with God in the beginning and thus He was before all creation, and Paul similarly writes at Colossians 1:17. Given that precedence, then it’s logical that John 1:1 is seen to support Genesis 1:1 in this mathematically visual way!

SUMMARY

So far, we’ve learned the Bible has proven and demonstrable mathematical meanings buried within its text when letters are converted into numerical values. Moreover, many forms of mathematical operations and principles may be discovered, eg.

    • standard arithmetical operations
    • non-complex geometrical shapes
    • Venn diagrams
    • square root
    • factorials.

And that’s only when taking ordinary three-dimensional space into account. Also hidden within Genesis is a descriptive name of God and a direct link to the nature of Time! But that’s for another time…meanwhile, click to read what ‘coincidentally’ appeared today!!
