Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return – 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.

‘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.

Kingdom mysteries – Jesus points to mathematics

[First posted 6 April 2018 as A Post-Resurrection Miracle as a ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed]

His disciples came to Jesus and said, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” and He replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him (and her) more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand…” (Matthew 13:10-13 NKJV)

Definition: ‘Mystery’, Greek musterion (moos-tay-ree-on; Strongs #3466). From mueo, “to initiate into the mysteries”, hence a secret known only to the initiated, something hidden requiring special revelation. In the NT the word denotes something that people could never know by their own understanding and that demands a revelation from God. The secret thoughts, plans and dispensations of God remain hidden from unregenerate mankind, but are revealed to all believers. In non-biblical Greek musterion is knowledge withheld, concealed or silenced. In biblical Greek it is truth revealed (Col 1:26). NT musterion focuses upon Christ’s sinless life, atoning death, powerful resurrection and dynamic ascension.’ [New Spirit-Filled Study Bible]

The above, ancient meaning of ‘mystery’ is rarely understood and appreciated, even by those solidly grounded in scripture. As told in my testimony, my pre-Christian life got immersed in that esoteric knowledge, and so I’m experienced in this matter and can attest that the difference between that discipline and holy revelations from the Almighty is like the contrast between His Light and the devil’s darkness.

Astonishing mathematics within Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1

In examining End-times we’ve completed 7 items beginning with scriptures on the who, why, when and what of watching, followed by an eschatologist’s challenge, a pastor’s vision and (my pre-Christian) unbeliever’s confrontation with the Bible and events!

Being the 8th Briefing, the next will begin another cycle and visit unusual scripture before venturing into others’ valuable insights. An interlude spent on three previous posts will help our understanding of what’s ahead.:

In mid-September 2016, as told here, a mathematician was writing about his favourite formula whilst I was reading about the very same thing buried deep in holy writ!

A multitude of times I’ve noticed crazy coincidences cropping up to give confirmation and more instruction upon certain topics, as though the Lord’s got His hammer and hitting me between the eyes to get my attention! This ‘God-incident‘ is the most extraordinary so far coming almost ‘simultaneously’ from both a secular, scientific standpoint and two fundamental scriptures.

An anniversary-cum-birthday holiday brought me opportunity to read a book at long last after a non-stop busy Summer. So I grabbed a couple from my pile, one of which, Unlocking the Sign Miracles of John by Jonathan R Hill, seemed on the lines of what I’d heard John Kilpatrick saying about the ‘sign miracles’ in the Gospel of John.

Flicking through it I noticed many references to the ‘Consummation of the Age’ (including chapter on its ‘mathematical foundation’), the ‘end-time’ prophetical significance of those miracles, as well as typologies, numerical aspects of Hebrew and Greek alphabets and calculations of time periods. Now, I take the last with a pinch of salt as they need careful checking, but am willing to consider and weigh new, even radical, concepts that don’t contradict scripture.

HE IS RISEN! – Time and Quantum effects in Jesus’ Resurrection

First published in the early years of this blog and repeated annually:

In preparation for the Holy-days’ weekend Nina creates a tableau for contemplating Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. She’s inspired about what items to collect and arrange, usually including a rock with a central hole eroded by the sea and which we found on a beach. It serves as both the ‘skull’ and garden tomb of Golgotha. For example, the above display has a scarf as a ‘river of life’ flowing out of the empty cave/tomb below the cross. (In 2012 it gave an insight that I’ll share below.)

Maundy Thursday is celebrated as the night when Jesus and the lead-disciples ate an early Passover Seder, or meal (see video explanation). Following the meal, one disciple betrayed Him by leading Temple guards to capture Him at night for trial by a ‘kangaroo’ court of Jewish leaders.  It was a foregone conclusion that they’d demand authorisation of His death from Pontius Pilate, the Roman Prefect, or governor, of Judea.

If you’re unfamiliar with this true story and how it led to Jesus’ gruesome torture, death and burial followed by his amazing bodily resurrection and appearance to His disciples, read doctor Luke’s investigative account and the personal account of Jesus’ closest disciple John. (Later, a Jewish leader violently opposed to them but who encountered Jesus en-route to Damascus would write He was seen simultaneously by over 500 – read 1 Corinthians 15:6)

A Maundy Thursday Musing

The Cross at Ffald-y-Brenin, ‘miraculously’ provided and located as directed by the Lord.

[First published 2016]

Reflections upon the events of Jesus’ betrayal and execution whilst we were on a Quiet Day’s ‘Appointment in Jerusalem’, added to my ongoing meditation upon His personal prayer made, not in the garden of Gethsemane, but earlier in the upper room at the close of their Passover meal (John 17). That ‘celebratory remembrance’ proved to be more than a ground-breaking event. It was truly a heaven-breaking-in pivotal time in human history in which Jesus offered up Himself as the Paschal Lamb, not only for His first disciples but also for everyone who would ever believe in Him – eg. you and me! AND enable everyone to come into the full freedom of salvation from their sins and satan’s consequential authority over their lives – should they so choose. Continue reading

7 years-old prophetic journal note on ‘Corona Virus’ (F/P #162.2)

Martin P emailed me three weeks ago as follows about what a friend, whose surname I’ve deleted for confidentiality, had unearthed in her prayer journal. (Emphasis mine):

Dear Richard,

I am enclosing the transcript of a prophetic word that was given to a friend of mine, Jill C… I have known her for 6 years or so, and she is a part of a prophetic group in Tunbridge Wells. I can validate her and her openness to the Holy Spirit.

Last night (RB: 5th March) she was prompted to open one of her journals from 2013 and the transcript is the entry for that day. We prayed about the relevance of this forgotten and re-discovered word, and I think the Lord was encouraging me to send it to you for consideration. If you think there is value in a broader sense to publish this you have Jill’s permission. She only wants these words to be used for God’s Glory.

It will be 7 years in May this year since she received the word. David is her husband.

Please pray if this is of relevance. Thank you for considering this.

Every blessing,  Martin P

Journal Entry – 14.05.2013

I woke up with the words:

“8 Particles of Genetic Indeterminate”

NO idea of meaning – looked up on the internet and it is to do with viruses such as HIV. [Also had a picture of a young blonde woman sadly walking away from her man [?]]

I said to David that morning, I had real concerns about the fact that due to toxicity and all the injections [innoculations] children and young people [teens to twenties] have – they may have very little immunity for dealing with viruses etc – noted the “Corona Virus” mentioned [later in the day].

 Then Daniel Ch 10 V 11 ‘…..understand the word that I speak to you, stand upright for unto you I am sent – when he had spoken the word I stood trembling.’

 Matthew Ch 8 V 15 .. ? Church ministry?…..’and He [Jesus]  touched her hand and the fever left her and she rose to minister to others.’

 ? Prophetic word on coming Epidemic and the Churches’ role – bringing others to Christ?

I have not looked at this entry, which is part of my journaling over the years, but it saw it while sorting my paper-work out yesterday and I ran up the road to the URC prayer group and shared it with our minister and later that day went across to Martin to share it as it had been such a shock to see the name Corona in this write-up nearly 7 years ago!

Physics and Faith: a personal journey

Paul’s account reminds me of my days as a physics student after which I became anti-Christian but later after the Lord rescued me, like Paul, I later realised He really does have a sense of humour. I’d vowed never to touch Baptists with a barge-pole because they’re biblical bigots – but a years later I realised He’d put me in a Baptist church to get grounded in scripture!

When I was a Physics student, I used to tear down the posters of the University Christian Union (CU).  It was an unexpected moment for me therefore when I found faith and became a Christian, while I was working on a PhD in magnetic domain theory.  In the early hours of the morning of the seventh of May 1971, alone in my room, God showed me how much I needed him.

I sometimes feel my experience has parallels to that of Saul meeting Jesus in Acts 9.  There were no lights or voices, just a sudden feeling of an urgent need for meaning to my life

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:

PROPHETICAL ASPECTS

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.”

NUMERICAL ASPECTS

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:

POSSIBLE BREXIT LEAVE DATE31st January 2020

‘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.’

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’.

Fulfilled Prophecy #38.1 cont’d – God’s numbers within the Bible and prophecy

As said in the previous post on ‘seeing’ the Lord’s numbers, the reason for republishing a few older posts on numbers is to provide a background briefing on the spiritual as well as intellectual rationale for the Bible’s use of and significance of numbers. Also, it will help when I address objections arising from recent references by a few prophets to numbers.

For the sake of clarity therefore, this version of Unlocking the Sign Miracles of John – Update posted 15 Nov 2018, repeats only the grounds for using numbers contained in the Bible:

That first part of the original 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

With the kind permission of author Jonathan Hill, I draw my readers’ attention to the book’s Preface telling of his discovering how prophecy and numbers work together.:

‘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.’

[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.’

From the outset Jonathan stresses,

‘Throughout the text of this book, Greek and Hebrew numbers and typology are introduced and it is, therefore, important to clarify their scriptural authority. Essentially, fundamental doctrine is never to be derived from types or numbers, rather they should be used only to illustrate and illuminate the existing meaning of the surface text.’

Then he proceeds to elucidate some profound points:

But God does not stop with types, as each letter of the two original languages of the Bible, Hebrew for the Old Testament and Greek for the New Testament, encapsulates a numerical value. Words and collections of sequential words have a mathematical identity which, therefore, extends the surface narrative. Any agreement between this underlying numerical pattern and the surface meaning or doctrine, affixes considerable authenticity to the text…(All emphases mine).

‘Only a personable supernatural God could inject such intrinsic connectivity within a book written in two languages with different alphabets, by multiple authors and across two millennia.

‘The only reference in the (NT) to individual letters is actually in John’s Gospel – ‘And the Jews marveled, saying, “How does this man know letters, having never studied?” John 7:15 NKJV.

‘The existence of a relationship between the surface meaning of the text, the type and the underlying mathematical value has long been known in Jewish Rabbinic tradition’ – see Wiki Pardes (Jewish Exegesis) (page 160).

For more details be sure to read the above linked posts.

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

In the next post we’ll read Jonathan’s claim as to how this numerical understanding may be applied to a couple of globally significant ‘escape’ events in recent years…
