Veronika’s vision of burning bush fits sequence of Biblical parallels!

Although not a fan of Sid Roth, I recommend his video-interview because it puts the vision of Donald Trump and a burning bush into the perspective of Biblical prophetic parallels. Moreover, Robin Bullock’s opening reference to 2012 as beginning a timeline of parallels fits into not only my dream and Bill Johnson’s word for the UK in Sept 2011 of the Coming Kingdom and launching this blog, but also William Koenig on Bible cycles as well as Nathan Morris’ word 2012 Setting the Stage for the End-times and that of Dr Sharon Stone’s on the world-changing significance of Hurricane Sandy….!!!

SO be mightily blessed

AND, it just so happens I happened upon the following much shorter teaching by Perry Stone on Bible prophecy parallel and cycles, where significant events of ancient times get mirrored in modern days.

FURTHERMORE, I’d once again been mulling over these years being a replay of the ‘Days of Noah’ as prophesied by Jesus himself:

End-Times Briefing 8: Daniel and ‘The Wonderful Numberer’ Jesus Christ

Now we examine one of the sparkling gems, a radiant diamond, found in the treasure trove of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return. First a brief recap: 

The Invisible Hand, Victor Dunstan (Megiddo Press 1984)

As at the close of Briefing 7, Victor Dunstan’s reference to three dates, or Time periods of differing length, given in the 12th chapter of Daniel point to 1917, 1948 and 1992, is derived from Dr Grattan Guinness’ mathematical work.  Subsequently, three ‘interlude’ posts tell how Jonathan R Hill has taken that work further in two books. Amongst a veritable plethora of biblical topics and scriptures he examines in-depth the role of ‘The Wonderful Numberer’ – Daniel’s chief supra-natural informant.

In his ‘Introduction’ to Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, Jonathan echoes Chuck Missler’s frustration, as quoted in Briefing 5, by noting:

“So many in the Body of Christ are ambivalent towards the Lord’s mandate to watch, but the Lord wants the church to awake! Messiah’s words to the sleeping Peter are the Lord’s words to His living body, who are currently on the earth at the end of this age: “Could you not watch with Me for one hour?” (Matt 26:40 NKJV)

This is followed by, and I’m grateful to Jonathan for his kindly permitting publication (emphases mine): 

‘DANIEL’S VISIONS

‘Daniel was privileged to receive extraordinary visions which were sealed until the ‘time of the end’ when many will run ‘to and fro’ and knowledge will increase. An apt description of our current world when knowledge and data are readily available via the internet.

Daniel 12:4 (NKJV) – “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

‘The prophetic words of the Book of Daniel were sealed until the ‘time of the end’ – confirmed again later in the same chapter (Daniel 12):

Daniel 12:9-10 (NKJV) – And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed ’til the time of the end”. 10 Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

‘Daniel’s ‘time of the end’ is now.

‘Earlier in the Book of Daniel a ‘when’ question was asked, regarding the desolation of the Temple in Jerusalem. The question was asked to someone called the ‘Wonderful Numberer’ [19]. The questioner (the ‘holy one’) clearly knew that the ‘Wonderful Numberer’ had the answer to the ‘when’ question.

Daniel 8:13 (YLT) – “And I hear a certain holy one speaking, and a certain holy one said to the wonderful numberer who is speaking: ‘Until when [is] the vision of the continual [sacrifice], and of the transgression, an astonishment, to make both sanctuary and host a treading down?’”

‘As will be seen [20], the wisdom of the ‘Wonderful Numberer’, who answered the ‘when’ question, is part of the ‘understanding’ sealed until the ‘time of the end’, when the ‘wise’ will understand. Moreover, the ‘Wonderful Numberer’ will be shown to hold the ‘Key of David’ [21] – the significance of which will be examined in detail [22].’

Notes:

‘[19] The Hebrew word for ‘Wonderful Numberer’ in Daniel 8:13 is ‘Palmoni’ (Hebrew ‘לפלמוני’ – Strong’s number 6422) and is only found once in all scripture . It is a ‘contracted’ word and contains the elements of two Hebrew words. The first is ‘pele’ and the other is ‘ma-na’. The Hebrew word ‘pele’ means ‘wonderful’ (see Isaiah 9:6) and the word ‘ma-na’ means ‘numbered’ (see Daniel 5:25-26). So, this contracted Hebrew word ‘Palmoni’ literally means ‘Wonderful Numberer’”. Taken from F.C. Gilbert’s book, Practical Lessons for the Church of Today, pp. 606-608, published by The Review in 1902.

Gill’s Exposition states: ‘another angel said to him that spoke, whose name is unknown, only called such a one, or ‘Palmoni’, which some render ‘the wonderful numberer’ or ‘the numberer of secrets’ or ‘that has all secrets numbered’; and apply it to Christ, whose name is ‘Pele’, wonderful; the eternal Word of God, that is in the bosom of the Father, and knows all secrets, and the number of times and seasons, how long they will last; what created angels know not, he does; and therefore they apply to him for instruction and knowledge in hidden things.

The ‘Wonderful Numberer’ is found in few translations yet many commentaries acknowledge this translation including Albert Barne’s Commentary, John Gill’s Exposition, Geneva Study Bible, Calvin’s Commentary, John Trapp’s Complete Commentary, Matthew Poole’s Annotations, Treasury of Scripture Knowledge and E. W. Bullinger’s Companion Notes. (See StudyLight.org Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary Daniel 8:13)

‘[20] See chapter ‘Numbers, Triangles and Pyramids in Scripture’ and section ‘The ‘Wonderful Numberer’ as the Seventh Pyramid’.

‘[21] See chapter ‘Tools of the Watch’ and section ‘The Key of David’.

‘[22] See chapter ‘Tools of the Watch’ and section ‘The ‘Wonderful Numberer’ Holds the Key of David’.’  [Isaiah 22:22 << THAT NUMBER AGAIN! – RB]

Daniel 8:13-21 [Scripture For All Interlinear OT Hebrew]

Amusing ‘musical-jigsaw’ of End-Time Briefings

Can’t avoid chuckling whenever the Lord’s playing a game with me. Mulling over what I think He’s showing me about my End-Times Briefings, I recalled a prophecy given me in 2009 that, “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…”

In returning to the next Briefing (No. 8) I’d thought of bringing its originally drafted ‘end’ to its beginning, thereby wrapping up the previous Briefing on my first ‘jigsaw pieces’. Hoping to schedule the new Briefing for weekend reading, I ‘closed’ it last Thursday with:

“Perhaps the above copy pages will whet your appetite to learn more about watching for Jesus’ Return.” BUT I got nudged to continue: “Last year my wife was touched by the Holy Spirit and heard,It’s sooner than you think!” (see Back to Bible Basics: Direct Word on Jesus’ Return and Vision of Iran).

LOL! That reference to Iran takes us full-circle back to start of the ‘Invisible Jigsaw’ over 30 years ago, as told in Briefing 7. So I’d thought of making those remarks a postscript. BUT next, the ‘morning-after high’ brought an insight as I checked and tagged pages in Jonathan Hill’s latest book!

Astonished, I found one CONFIRMS the next Briefing’s number, and thus their sequence!

The full content of this series hadn’t been thought out in any depth but simply published as and when possible. In fact, I’d wanted to publish Briefing 8 in its own right over six months ago!

Chronologically from a personal viewpoint, the whole series would have a very different sequence, viz: No. 7, 5, 1, 2, 3, 8+, 6 and with 4 omitted as it was popped in on a whim! So Christopher Wickland’s vision of the Sign in the Sun would come last! However, what Jesus taught should be foundational and thus began this current series of Briefings.

Moreover, it dawned upon me that one cycle of 7 Briefings has been completed, with an intermission for a mathematical preparation for the next cycle. Thus, we’re starting the next octave as though going up a level, somewhat like musical notes: A, B, C, D, E, F, G (see Wikipedia image). Also likewise, this new cycle begins with examining a particular scripture in some depth.

Furthermore, we could regard the two cycles of Briefings like the staves for the bass and treble clefs in musical scores, our ‘interlude’ on mathematics the space in between them! Or better still: this post is the ‘Middle C’, which is the note that hovers between the two staves.

Bringing prophetic pieces together. How many? 8!

Next, we consider that maybe it wasn’t a ‘star’ or astronomical sign that sent ‘wise men from the East’ looking for a baby born in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago, but a rare wisdom and visions bequeathed by the Hebrew prophet Daniel to a school of prophets??

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.

Prophetic interpretation of Veronika’s ‘US Seesaw’ dream

Yesterday Veronika followed up those two dreams about America and the nations:

I submit to you all a powerful prophetic submission sent to me this morning by a trusted friend and highly anointed Seer himself, and a man that truly carries a mantle to interpret dreams and visions. Here below, Prophet Abel Praise goes ahead to share what The LORD has revealed to him concerning the two dreams that I posted late last night.:

While reading his insights from The LORD, I am compelled to share them with those of you who take seriously the need for fervent and unrelenting prayer in this hour for the Nations…. for the nations are now at a divine tipping point!

(Please prayerfully consider sharing the insights below with your prayer partners and teams for there are many powerful prayer strategies and prophetic revelations that are being revealed… for such as time as this. )

“Pleasant Morning Dear Ma,

I trust you are well,

Always a great honor and delight reading what The Spirit Of The LORD is revealing through you.  Truly; very significant times and a call for wisdom.

Some very, very important highlights and prophetic call to action the dream reveals.  The boundary lines speaks of the priestly offices that bear the geographical authority of territories.

This posture reveals what the call to attention is; the geographical authority of lands and territories; the leadership across territories of lands and nations.

Then The WORD; “Watch [Prophetic] for The Weight of My Glory [Apostolic] will counter-act [Attorney] the wickedness and witchcraft in the Nations of the Earth; highlights the instrument of warfare — The Alignments of The Apostolic-Prophetic-Attorneys ministries are the instruments of war; whose significant governmental-revelatory-intercessory function will counter-act; will provoke a summoning for the wickedness and witchcraft playing out in the lands to be numbered and measured in the scales in Heaven’s Court; for a toppling of the twin evils of wickedness and witchcraft that have stood in a significant mountain in the nations of the earth.

This is what is revealed in Revelation 8; the prayers of the saints when rising and filling it’s measure became the censer in the hand of the Angel who then offered it; and the response being the decrees established in Heaven’s Court that went forth as lightnings, thunders, voices into the earth.

“And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.  And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.  And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake,”  Revelation 8:2-4.

Discerning the prophetic call to actions in prophetic newsletters from Heaven is significant to partnering and laboring to see the prophetic word fulfilled.

This is also what the next part of the dream emphasizes;  the unbalanced scales of Justice with bowls filled with all sorts of evil; the enemy dancing at the top of it; showed a perverse altar with strange demonic presence seated at a significant mountain that covers the nations.

The prophetic posture of intercession and crying out for Justice and Judgment you had in the dream; shows the prophetic posture and call to action required of The Body of Christ in this hour; the apostolic-prophetic-attorneys wielding intercessory power, the authority of witnesses; and the authority of representatives in heavens court praying in alignment will provoke the summoning of perverse wickedness and witchcraft to be weighed and measured in the scales.

Through the posture of prophetic intercession; The Spirit Of The LORD said; “Can the bowl that is full be emptied”?  Then the response; “Watch [Prophetic] for The Weight of My Glory [Apostolic] will counteract [Attorney] will counteract the wickedness and witchcraft in the Nations of the Earth.”

We must understand that; if the measure of sins of a land be full; two things are in view; either the time-cycle of iniquity could have been completed and ready to be judged and dethroned; or like the time of The Prophet Jeremiah; a righteous nation has fallen in sin and the enemy is at the point of laying accusations and presenting witnesses to gain a right to subdue that nation.

As it was spoken of The Israelites how they had murmured and tried The LORD ten times while in the wilderness and it was determined after the counting and numbering of ten; that they couldn’t enter the promise.

Also at the time when Jacob was to be redeemed from Laban;  the Angel said concerning this; how Laban had changed the wages of Jacob ten times.

We see again that after the counting and numbering of ten; a determination went forth for his redemption.

Discerning significant times like these through revelation by The Spirit Of The LORD can be what establishes a new generational season of righteousness for a nation.

These are usually significant times, tipping points, decision-making moments in Heaven’s Court that determines the direction of a nation for a season.

The prophetic call for intercession is now going forth through this significant prophetic dreams; as the call to action; and The LORD showing what the results will be; like Revelation 8; there would be the release of a Golden Plumbline that restores Righteousness and Justice; the Rains of Fire and Glory that will usher in restoration in the Nations of the Earth.

The second dream is also like unto the first.  The first dream highlights an International Mountain of Nations; while the second dream highlights The Mountain Of The Nation Of USA.

These are two significant prophetic newsletters from The Courts of Heaven showing two territories at a significant tipping point; and the call for the ministries that will effect a change through intercession and the wisdom to administer righteousness and justice in Heaven’s Court.

The seesaw is also speaking of The Scales And Balance; the Pivot with Trump; speaks of The Presidential Mountain of The USA; the donkeys and elephants within the American political sphere speaks of democrats and republicans.

However; elephants prophetically also represents The Glory; being Apostolic Governmental authority of reformation.

The prophetic rendering of Trump as [Truth, Righteousness, Unity, Mercy, Peace] is deeply significant; and a prophetic mystery that points to territories that marks the presidential authority of USA.

However; for understanding and gaining the posture The Spirit Of The LORD is calling us to bear.  The Presidential Authority and the territory assigned to the Presidency of The USA is being revealed; as significant in this hour for the discerning to labor through and cry out to The LORD; for wickedness, witchcraft and perversions to be put on the scales; for measurings, numberings to take place; and a restoration of the righteous covenants of these territories unto The LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST.

As Daniel wrote;

“In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of The LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
And I set my face unto The LORD God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: And I prayed unto The LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments…” 
  Daniel 9:1-5.

To him that have ears…  “This is The Hour Of Wisdom”.

Warm Regards,
Abel Praise

RB Footnote: 

Abel’s references to Heaven’s Court are particularly interesting in view of my reading about operating there when presenting testimonial evidence against claims engineered by The Accuser against a worship song. (It was a veritable ‘courtroom drama’!)  By ‘God-incidence’ I found a helpful, unread book in our library and cannot, therefore, recommend it highly enough:

Synopsis of posts on unsealing the Book of Daniel

To continue our theme on Daniel:

In view of the multi-level aspect of prophetic scripture recognised by biblical scholars of both Classical and Dispensational persuasions – and thus hinting at the cyclical fulfilling of prophecy – together with the ‘Act of God’ Iranian earthquake on Israel’s 70th Anniversary, we now start considering the prophetic instruction Daniel received from a heavenly messenger – and praying that we be blessed in its becoming ‘unsealed’.

I’m not alone in having my attention drawn to this book because one of the scholars whom I’ve re-blogged on Richard’s Watch is now publishing fresh insights. As in the previous post, it’s only one of many references to Daniel which have popped up since Resurrection Sunday!

Therefore and on the understanding that most readers are familiar to some extent with the Book of Daniel, it would be helpful to take stock of what I’ve already blogged on the ‘unsealing’ of the vision recorded in its 11th chapter, as may be inferred from.:

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:4 NKJV)

Thursday 19th’s prophetical musing fulfilled Friday 20th by Iran quake!

Having prepared materials for the blog introducing the especial significance of the 3rd week of April, then being surprised by the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence, I went on to finish publishing. Only then did I begin mulling over everything that’s going on in this ‘Month of Infamy’, as Eric Hadik regards April with its regular crisis days of 19th and 20th April.

So weird that Israel has Memorial Day and Independence Day on those two dates!

In particular last Thursday, 19th April, I mused over the purported anti-chemical attacks in Syria as cloaking Iranian activities to prepare for their eventual assault upon Israel,  and wondered if they may mount some sort of attack during the holiday celebrations. Those who’ve been following the news will be aware of America’s intention to revise the international ‘Nuclear Deal’ with Iran.

Then I chuckled on recalling the Lord’s promises to protect Israel and that Iran may well come a ‘cropper’ – then this popped into mind > the Lord could arrange for a huge hole to open up and swallow their nuclear weapons facilities!

On catching up with overnight news on Friday morning, 20th April, my jaw dropped on seeing this headline on Koenig’s World Watch Daily home page:

‘Iran quake, at least 5.5 in magnitude, strikes near nuclear power plant’

It was followed by the map shown published the previous day in The Times of Israel (click/tap image for link, opens in same window):

 

For more details read USGS’ earthquake report.

Therefore, we could reasonably consider this may be a direct warning to Iran that the same, or bigger, can so easily happen to its nuclear program at any time!

Moreover, its occurring on the the year’s cyclically critical date of 19-20 April is surely no coincidence!

Also, highly ‘God-incidental that I just ‘happened’ to have blogged in depth on this topic – is it not?

LOL – what incredible timing when writing in connection with Time!!

PS. Considered further at Earthquake on Israel’s 70th Anniversary..Signs form God?

Significance of the month of April, especially this 3rd week

The promise of improving weather, from that of unusually prolonged cool cloudy Spring to unexpected spell of wall-to-wall warm Summer sunshine, brings outdoor jobs to the top of our ‘to do’ tasks. Thus, with reduced time online, my intention was to complete the post on Bible maths I was drafting for this week, but which unexpectedly got ‘self-published’ then, if there’s time, to quickly re-post past items on cycles. But something was tapping away about April at the back of my brain! Those items needed more clout!! And they lead into a surprising revelation about April.

So I re-located pages in the God-incidents hub to a brand new one – Time: a Primer. (It covers brief thoughts on eternity & prophecy, the nature of time, cycles & the Bible, the natural year and the historical significance of April, especially to Israel and the USA.) After three busy days I had opportunity last night to copy-paste an introduction to the last item, as well as catching up on overseas news. That’s when my plans got a tad waylaid – I spotted the announcement about Israel’s Independence Day. Hold my horses – whoaa there! I need to publish that!

ISRAEL

That news took me by surprise because I thought that will be next month: on the 70th anniversary of the day the British Mandate over Palestine expired – 14th May 1948.

According to the Jewish Virtual Library, on that day ‘The Jewish People’s Council gathered at the Tel Aviv Museum to declare the establishment of the State of Israel. There’s no record of who attended the meeting, but 350 invitations were sent out instructing the recipients to keep the information secret. Word got out, however, and people started singing Hatikvah in the streets even before David Ben-Gurion began reading the declaration he’d written at a half-hour ceremony held before the British left, to avoid making the declaration on Shabbat. Some people signed the Declaration later but four hours later, Egypt bombed Tel Aviv. The new state was recognized that night by the United States and three days later by the USSR.

‘The creation of Israel in May of 1948 and its survival afterwards depended in large part on the Truman Administration’s willingness to recognize and support the Jewish state.’

SO, what’s today’s celebrations across Israel all about? It’s tied in with Memorial Day.

‘Established unofficially with the founding of the State of Israel in 1948, and enacted into law in 1963, the day preceding Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) is observed as a Memorial Day for Israeli soldiers who lost their lives in defending Israel. Held on the fifth day of the Hebrew calendar month of Iyar, Yom Ha’atzmaut is a modern holiday celebrating Israel‘s independence. Israeli Independence Day is always immediately preceded by Yom Hazikaron – Memorial Day. The message of linking these two days is clear: Israelis owe their independence – the very existence of the state – to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for it.’

This difference between those dates of declared and observed independence makes an uncanny connection with historical, cyclical phenomena. We now get into the fascinating facts about today and tomorrow specifically, as well as the third weeks of April. (Maybe it’s one reason I got nudged from circulating emails to public blogging?):

CYCLES

Weeks after launching this blog I wrote Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles about Christian journalist William Koenig’s investigation into the work of Eric Hadik, a financial markets technical analyst. (See their bios: About William KoenigWho is Eric Hadik?) I realised some years later that this ‘coincided’ with publication of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger.

Hadik built his remarkable knowledge upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories, which are based upon his discoveries within the Bible and then applied to mathematical and geometrical principles!

Four years of closely following Hadik’s application of theories of cycles to natural and human events, enabled Bill to state he’d “found his calculations extremely accurate”.

Then in September 2012, with that knowledge of Eric Hadik’s predictions, Bill ‘hit the nail on the head’ by asking, “Would the 11th anniversary of 9/11 be another historical day?” – it was! (Read 11-year cycle proves itself again! – note it relates to period of sunspot activity).

APRILS

In reprinting his earlier report Bill writes as follows:

“Eric Hadik (InsideTrackTrading) has complied an extensive list of major events that have happened on or around April 19 and 20—including world wars, American wars, Israeli wars, and the births of Hitler and Mohammed.

“Eric has previously shared the significance of the month of April and the incredible number of events that have happened in this month that have impacted the US, Israel and the Jewish people.

“Major wars began in the US in this time frame. Major domestic terror events occurred numerous times on April 19. Mohammed and Hitler were born on the same day—April 20. There have also been major news items about Iran in the month of April from 2006 to 2012 (and 2013’s Boston Marathon bombing, 2015’s nuclear ‘agreement’ with Iran: RB)…”

Read these astonishing facts in Historical Significance of April – Especially for Israel and the USA.

Notes:
  1. For a short background briefing read Cycles & The Bible and The Natural Year.
  2. In checking those items’ links to Eric’s site I was pleased to discover his new site on 17-year periods, which number recently featured in the numerical mystery of Jesus’ post-Resurrection catch of 153 fish.

Israel’s 70th Anniversary – may nation and citizens be blessed

Independence Day in Israel begins tonight, Wednesday 19th April. Forty ambassadors to the United Nations from Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Caribbean, Europe and Latin America, accompanied by Israel’s ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, have arrived for Israel’s 70th Anniversary celebrations.

Independence Day is traditionally celebrated with music and bright lights across the country’s towns and villages and the Israeli air force is expected to stage a spectacular fly-past on Thursday.

This date ‘coincides’ with that of significant events during previous Aprils, indicative of the historical nature of a particular cycle in human activity. Read the next post for all the  fascinating facts.

Jurgen Buhler, President of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, writes:

‘Israel is a nation that has faced unbelievable obstacles, and yet over these 70 years our mighty God has breathed life into the land once again. Seventy years ago, Israel was an undeveloped nation filled with orphans who survived through the Holocaust, and yet, God used those very people to cultivate, develop, grow, and bring new life back into the promised land!

‘The ICEJ rejoices with the Jewish people on April 18th and 19th as the streets of Israel resound with music, dancing, singing, and festivities to celebrate this spectacular moment in history! The international commemoration date will be on May 14th, which coincides with the opening date for the new US embassy in Jerusalem, so stay tuned for more opportunities to wish Israel a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

‘Today, let us rejoice around the world in the miracles God has done in the nation of Israel!

Psalm 118:24 – “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Here ICEJ’s VP Senior Spokesman David Parsons brings to mind the miracles God has done over these 70 years in Israel:

UPDATE (Thursday am):

Queen Elizabeth II and US President Donald Trump were among the well-wishers for Israel’s 70th anniversary.  Her Majesty’s congratulations on Israel’s anniversary were  conveyed through the British ambassador. Trump tweeted,  “Best wishes to Prime Minister Netanyahu and all of the people of Israel on the 70th Anniversary of your Great Independence. We have no better friends anywhere. Looking forward to moving our Embassy to Jerusalem next month!”

Prophetic ‘castle’ words and pictures now coming into play

Several readers have commented or emailed me on the timeliness of the word from Liz Evans in her Call to pray for our nation and establish God’s rule.

It is undated and thereby avoids attribution of dating or thinking its ‘dated’, or it’s gone stale. After all, the Lord looks over His word to ensure it achieves its purpose and thus doesn’t return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11). This word brought by Liz was received several years ago, but we’ll connect the ‘prophetic dots’ or ‘jigsaw pieces’ and examine them as being evidence from the Lord as to that word being timely for 2018.

Bringing prophetic pieces together

Many regulars will be familiar with my use of godly coincidences as a tool in receiving, checking and testing prophetic words and visions. The scriptural warrant for doing so is quite clear but new readers wishing to investigate further are directed to ‘The Protocol of Prophecies’ in An Introduction to Prophecy.

‘BRIDGE o’er POND’ – ALABAMA

At about five past five last Sunday afternoon I found myself nodding in agreement with pastor John Kilpatrick at Church of His Presence saying the Lord has been giving him prophetic words for each new year…but it was the actual date that made me nod:

“It started in 2009 when the Lord first gave me a prophetic word. We waited on the Lord for the New Year and when He left I just got a download…” (listen from 1:03:00 here)

I was pleased to get a confirmation from a pastor that had been the start of a prophetic process for him too. Yet for me it had been a ‘need’ to write on the prophetic. Moreover, I’d been unconscious to a specific thread that had been sewn throughout the years until recently, when another sudden shower of serendipity surrounded me with ‘jigsaw pieces’ – just like snowflakes lying around my feet!

This time, it gave me grounds to get out my old files from 2009-10.  And this wasn’t the first time buttons had been pressed to open up and relive my visual memory.

The first such ‘re-opening’ had come after debating an issue at Prophecy Today in mid-December. A confirmatory word brought by Brett Dewey had plugged so powerfully into one of mine in 2011 when I’d had a very vivid dream relating to Bill Johnson’s prophecy on that 3rd September being a turning point for the Kingdom of God in the UK. Brett’s dream in December 2017 showed that what ‘our’ dreams cover is now at the next stage of active unveiling – God-incidents Validate Three Prophetic Visions refers.

[Moreover, Brett’s earlier vision of a beach and wall has strong similarities to details in a personal prophecy given to me by Bath’s team in 2005 when we met Liz.]

‘BRIDGE o’er POND’ – ARIZONA

The second ‘re-opening’ of my visual memory came last week from Tony Puccio after I’d joked in his second England Ablaze about his ‘spiritual observatory’ in Tucson, Arizona. On Wednesday 3rd he kindly sent me a file with covering note simply saying,  ‘Thought this might interest you’ – Wot! – a HUGE understatement!

Kitt Peak National Observatory outside Tucson (RB 4.2008)

In view of a couple of dreams he’d had about an inevitable change of monarch, I’d already put him in touch with a group of intercessors, who’d kindly supplied some historical prophecies on the royal family. It included a transcript of Liz Evan’s Word for UK.

I replied to Tony: ‘Re your…attachment that MIGHT interest me Tony!! It MOST certainly does, as explained below – I’m extremely grateful you’ve kept me in the loop on this…as its re-connecting me and taking me ‘full circle’…

‘…we often went to Bath City Church as it’s very special to us since 2002 (we married 6 months later) and it’s where we connected into the prophetic and met Revd Dr Sharon Stone and Liz Evans very soon afterwards.  Liz’s website is endorsed by a close friend of ours.’

I copied Liz into that reply and, after greeting her, wrote, ‘Tony’s attachment of the ‘Call’ you brought and its reference to castles immediately opened up my visual memory to the time several years ago I told you of the angels on battlements I saw close by Bath City Church.  Think I may also have emailed you on what I’d sensed of Windsor Castle being a connection between heaven and earth and then sharing that with Sharon six years ago next month!  (I didn’t know she’d soon move there)

‘Only last weekend did we watch episode 5 of The Crown (on Netflix) and noted its very close attention to detail of the ‘secret ceremony’ of Her Majesty being anointed during her Coronation, and to which your article refers. (My Her Majesty’s 90th birthday also refers.)’

BATTLEMENTS o’er BATH

I find in my personal prophecies papers that I’d emailed Liz on 18 March 2010, after our attending BCC’s Partner’s Day and wanting to discuss that weekend: ‘Yesterday was most encouraging and exciting, especially in what you said about castles and Magna Carta for I believe it may be relevant to some things that popped up over the last year… it develops upon the vision that Sharon weighed at her school [in Bath] a few years ago.’

There wasn’t time at the next weekend school to discuss, so I followed up with the details of what I’d seen in 2009, as may be read in this scanned email:

Liz replied, “Fantastic, definitely worth weighing” but I don’t recall seeing a paper version of what she’d shared. However, someone had transcribed it from her ‘Prophecy in the UK’ session at 2010 Release Conference in Bristol with Bill Johnson (him again!) and Mark Stibbe. A copy of that came from Tony, but Liz kindly sent me her version for publication (see previous post).

INVISIBLE JIGSAW PIECES

After last Thursday’s frenetic to-and-fro of the above messages the following ‘God-incidental’ input soon burst upon the scene:

  1. I realised 7 years have elapsed since this Call was made at Release 2010.
  2. That evening’s meeting with our curate of Bramshott & Liphook Church discussed her pre-Alpha spirituality course. She will be teaching on ‘interior castles’ (per Carmelite St Teresa of Avilla)!!
  3. Thus, I told her of my day’s activity and past connection with ‘castles’ and she reminded me of her Bath connections: especially Paul Skelton’s H.O.T.S. and ministry in India. (Soon after launching this blog I helped Paul by publicising the issues HOTS Bath had with Advertising Standards Agency in 2012)
  4. Our vicar Valentine Inglis-Jones was previously curator at Holy Trinity, Coombe Down Bath, and will be with out there with Paul later this month!

So Sunday’s passing remark by pastor John in Daphne, Alabama, makes yet one more confirmatory ‘God-incidence’. On top of all that is what I’d sensed about Windsor Castle in 2011 and shared with Sharon in February 2012.

HEAVEN TOUCHING EARTH

In that month, at a conference in Torquay, I mentioned to Sharon that Nina and I had visited Windsor the previous year and I’d sensed a spiritual atmosphere there. As we spoke, an image of its Castle’s famous round tower came into mind. This was followed by the idea its crenellated battlements look like the teeth of a giant cogwheel, and this could fit into some sort of invisible socket where earth could get plugged into heaven!

It’s a little hard to explain but then the thought dropped into mind that such engagement would enable the heavenly kingdom to ‘wind up’ our earthly kingdom – or ‘queen-dom’ – for the Lord’s purposes (eg. revival) – rather like putting a key into and winding up a clockwork toy. [Paws 4 Thought – a Special Town in the Thames Valley refers.]

There’s other observations I could make but for now let’s note Liz’s emphasis is reiterated by Suzanne Payne editor of UK Prophetic Words (emphasis added),

“Richard…it is a key time for this word!

Now, it is particularly significant that 8 years have passed since Liz published the full word and call to Christians to defend our Nation and establish God’s rule. In biblical symbolism 8 represents a new beginning, a new order or creation. In the account of creation God created the earth and heavens in 6 days and rested from that labour on the 7th. So the whole creation as a universal, harmonious corporate entity had its first ‘working day’ on the 8th day! (See next post for unexpected confirmation on ‘8’!)

Also, I’d had the distinct impression of 2018 being a year of going up a level, like in spiraling up after having gone around full circle ie as in a 7-year cycle. Personally, I wanted to move into the more restful 7th year of this blog’s cycle (as in my New Year thanks) yet have a strong sense of moving into a new level – and most astonished to get an award!

A most intriguing closing thought: I’d considered re-publishing my first New Year’s blog  Points to Ponder 2011-12 on its 6th anniversary. I didn’t do so yet its subject of Biblical cycles is repeated a couple of paragraphs back – and I sure didn’t plan it that way!

Many thanks to all those who have kindly shared Liz’s call to pray for Britain.

Solar eclipse across America signals onset of repentance

RJ Dawson continues his provocatively instructive series on economic crises and divine judgement by considering the timing of today’s solar eclipse.

This month’s critical convergence of historical cycles

AN EXTRA-SPECIAL THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO SIGNED UP IN EARLY 2012!

A month after launching this blog in late November 2011, I introduced my first readers to accredited Christian journalist and ‘Watcher in The White House’, William Koenig in Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/ Financial Cycles. This referred to his four-year investigation of the work and predictions of the financial markets technical analyst Eric Hadik. (Read About William Koenig and Who is Eric Hadik?)

Erik Hadik built his renowned expertise upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories based upon his discoveries of mathematical-geometrical principles in the Bible!  Erik’s material is published at Inside Track Trading. (My very brief introduction to cycles may be read in the blog’s God-incidences hub.)

After closely following Hadik’s application of those theories to natural and social events, Bill published his findings simultaneously with the launch of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger and attested to having “found (Hadik’s) calculations extremely accurate”. So, it certainly seems the Lord wants His people to learn about these matters.

Before proceeding and if having time and inclination, you may want to get ‘up to speed’ by scanning through my brief blogs on Cycles & The Bible and The Natural Year. I’d like to  draw your attention to Erik’s evidence for his thesis on Historic Aprils For USA & Israel. This has led him to dub today, April 19th and the days thereabouts, as being a “Date of Infamy for America”!

Digging into those links will give good grounding for Bill’s comprehensive compilation from four of his 2016-17 reports in.:

The Converging of Major Historical Patterns in 2017-18 and Jewish New Year 5777

(Read document by clicking/tapping title.) This paper focuses upon the significance of 2017/5777 as regards the land of Israel, biblically and geographically. In conjunction with data from Erik Hadik, Bill covers these excitingly informative topics in detail:

  • Donald Trump born exactly 700 days before Isarel became a nation
  • On first day in office POTUS Trump was 70 years, 7 months, 7 days old
  • America’s 45th President, Isaiah 45 and 44:28; Tim La Haye study notes
  • Jubilee Year and liberation of Jerusalem 1917 & 1967 (50 years) in depth
  • Five potential major developments in US-Israel relations in 2017
  • Orthodox Jews believe Messiah’s appearance possible in 2017
  • Biblical origins of 70-nation anti-Israel Paris conference
  • Several scheduled astronomical events are Biblically relevant
  • Convergence of 25, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 100 year cycles re Jerusalem
  • Culmination of four major 70-year cycles from 1948 to 2018
  • 7-year cycle from the beginning of the ‘Arab Spring’
  • Computers and technology 70-year cycle.

Last weekend’s Koenig’s Eye View from the White House provides a detailed list of critical events in April 2016, plus timeline of them within this current April – of which we’re all too well aware!

Bill asks, “Were the last two weeks of April 2016 the most prophetically significant period in history?”

Typically, he provides a  detailed analysis of their events and regards this present time as being, “Another prophetically pivotal month: many major headlines and news of final-day nations that will play out in the rest of April” (ie. 2017).

So in this light, it’s very poignant that yesterday Prime Minister Theresa May announced her decision to hold a snap general election on 8th June, thereby thwarting ‘Remoaners’ plans and thus strongly forging ahead with Brexit!

And today she got the backing of MPs by an overwhelming 522 to 13 votesApril 19th, an exceptionally historic day for the UK!

MOST EXCELLENT!!

Mark Davidson’s best guess End-Time timeline

Many thanks for this very useful summary and how well timed in view of one of my readers’ comments on vision of heavenly council meeting on UK. For a summary of Mark’s theories read Four Signposts of the Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

Many have asked for a chart to put together the main events of the end times from the Signpost perspective. Timelines can be dangerous because they can be followed too closely and relied upon too much.

But I also realize the utility of timelines and how with one picture they can relate events to one another. I also started to notice some real dates as I dug in a little deeper which were very close to the opening and closing dates of the Jewish seven-year cycles. Also, it looks like big events usually don’t happen on the cycle start/finish, but a cycle can have a theme. Like for the First Signpost, the five cycles thus far are: conquest, conquest, WMD/bow, making the lion stand, continuing to watch the lion.

Each of the remaining Signposts being assigned to their own cycle was just a guess; however, the Bible itself gives us…

11 numbers linking Israel and Donald Trump in 2017

We heard Revd John Kilpatrick quoting from this fascinating data collected by Michael Snyder and published by CharismaNews. I’m most grateful to publisher and author. Note Michael’s reference to number 50 for I’d noticed Dr Sharon Stone’s prophecy on 3rd Nov 2012 on national identity was echoed 50 months later by Donald Trump during interview, as blogged in Fulfilled Prophecies #15.:

Is 2017 going to be the most important year we have seen in a very, very long time?

Because of the work I do, I am constantly immersed in research, and lately I keep coming across very strange “coincidences” regarding the year 2017. The numbers I am about to share with you certainly appear to be quite remarkable, but there will be many out there who will question their significance.

To the naysayers, I would suggest that from the very beginning, God has always put a lot of emphasis on numbers. For example, He created the world in precisely seven days, and on the seventh day He rested. Throughout Scripture, we see certain numbers showing up over and over again, and God has a purpose in that. So please keep this in mind as you consider the following 11 numbers that connect the year 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

1. On Nov. 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution that called for the creation of a Jewish state as part of an overall partition plan for the Middle Eastern territory that was occupied by Great Britain at that time. 2017 will mark the 70th anniversary of that agreement, and many believe that this will turn out to be quite significant. If you are not familiar with this U.N. resolution, here is some info on it from Wikipedia:

The United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was a proposal by the United Nations, which recommended a partition of mandatory Palestine at the end of the British Mandate. On 29 November 1947, the U.N. General Assembly adopted the plan as Resolution 181(II).[2]

The resolution recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States and a special international regime for the city of Jerusalem. The Partition Plan, a four-part document attached to the resolution, provided for the termination of the Mandate, the progressive withdrawal of British armed forces and the delineation of boundaries between the two states and Jerusalem. Part I of the plan stipulated that the Mandate would be terminated as soon as possible and the United Kingdom would withdraw no later than Aug. 1, 1948. The new states would come into existence two months after the withdrawal, but no later than Oct. 1, 1948. The plan sought to address the conflicting objectives and claims of two competing movements, Palestinian nationalism and Jewish nationalism, or Zionism.[3][4] The plan also called for economic union between the proposed states and for the protection of religious and minority rights.

So why would 70 years be important?

Well, the Babylonian captivity lasted for a period of 70 years, and as the Daily Crow explains, the number 70 just keeps popping up throughout the Bible.

Moses appointed 70 elders, and the gospels record 70 parables by Jesus. A total of 70 Israelites began their nation in Egypt before it would grow to over 2 million by the time of the Exodus. 70 elders made up Israel’s Great Tribunal which would later become the Sanhedrin. 70 disciples were sent out by Christ to preach the gospel in Luke 10. Therefore 70 means complete and perfect judgment or perfection made complete through judgment.

2. The number 50 is also a very important biblical number. And even though 2017 will not be a Jubilee year, it is fascinating to note that 2017 will be exactly 50 years from the reclaiming of Jerusalem in 1967.

3. If we go back another 50 years from 1967, that brings us to the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which was also a very significant landmark in the history of the Jewish people.

4. It turns out that there was also exactly 50 years from the Zionist Congress of 1897 to the U.N. resolution in 1947 that called for the creation of a Jewish state.

5. As I stated in a previous article, Donald Trump was born precisely 700 days before Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948.

6. The nation of Israel was 77 days old precisely 777 days after the birth of Donald Trump.

7. Israel’s 70th birthday will come precisely 700 days after Donald Trump’s 70th birthday.

8. Donald Trump’s shocking election victory just happened to fall on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s seventh year, seventh month and seventh day in office.

9. Donald Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day in the White House.

10. Donald Trump’s first full day in the White House will also come during year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar.

11. Many are pointing to a very unusual celestial arrangement that will take place on Sept. 23, 2017. It is being called “the Revelation 12 sign,” and some claim this is the first time in 7000 years that we will see the scene described in Revelation chapter 12 actually being depicted in the heavens. The following is what Revelation 12:1-2 says:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child and cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

You can learn more about this very unusual event right here on YouTube. And of course, just because the stars are lining up a certain way does not mean something specific will happen on that day. Some have suggested that it could be the birth of something, and others have suggested that it could be the beginning or the end of a countdown. The truth is that I don’t know if anyone knows what it might mean at this point, but Jesus did tell us to watch for signs in the sun, moon and stars in the last days, so we should be alert.

Throughout history, God has always liked to use numbers to get our attention. And as you just saw, there are lots of unusual numbers that seem to connect 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

And even without any of those numbers, many have long had a feeling that 2017 is going to be an extremely significant year, and so we all need to be ready for whatever God has in store for us.

On cycles and the Bible

Re-published from this blog’s Cycles and Time hub as second background item for soon upcoming posts on the convergence of scripture and science:

Then God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.  (Genesis 1:3-5)

BillKoenig_hdrIn New Year 2012, a few weeks after launching this blog, I introduced Christian journalist William Koenig’s four-year investigation into the work of Eric Hadik, a leading financial markets technical analyst. (Bios: About William Koenig – Who is Eric Hadik?).

[This was simultaneous with the publication of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger!]

Hadik built his knowledge upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories, based on his discoveries in the Bible, and applied to mathematical and geometrical principles!

After four years of closely following Hadik’s application of theories of cycles to natural and human events, Bill attested to having “found his calculations extremely accurate”.

Anyone wishing to check out this fascinating topic should read Eric’s trading bulletin Inside Track and his more recent website 40-Year Cycles. They contain informative articles on many types of cycles and check the accuracy of ‘cycle predictions’, eg. geological (earthquakes and volcanoes), scientific (including nuclear), financial markets, political, diplomatic or military matters!

Its January 2015 edition contains 40-Year Cycle: Euro 2015, which reports upon a 40-year cycle analysis and checked the accuracy of predictions made mid-2011. In view of recent, subsequent events (as here and here) it makes interesting reading!

Eric’s report Crash Cycles covers the effect of the 40-year Cycle upon the US economy.

After stating what cycles categorically are not, from a financial technician’s viewpoint, Eric defines them as follows:

What cycles ARE… is a measuring and projection of time assuming (as has been proven time and time again) that “history repeats itself”.   However, do not expect history to repeat itself  in the same fashion, at the same place, and in the same degree, as it did originally. (Cycles Intro)

BIBLICAL 40 DAYS & 40 YEARS

Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit in the wilderness for 40 days. After His resurrection Jesus appeared over a period of forty days to His first 120 disciples and taught them more about the Kingdom of God (Acts 1:3)!

Seven days after Noah entered the Ark it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. Moses sent leaders of each of the 12 tribes to spy out the Promised Land for 40 days. However, all except Joshua and Caleb rebelled against God’s directive to go into that land of milk and honey because giants were there. Consequently, God imposed a 40-year penalty of life in the desert for the generation of Moses’ compatriots (Numbers 14:28-35).

That episode clues as to the period defining a ‘generation’. It may be assumed 20 years of growth and adulthood in parenting children could be a definitive number. Numbers 14: 29 states only those aged 20 years or more, expect for Caleb and Joshua, will not enter the Promised Land but die in the desert. Only their children, that is all under 20 years of age, would enter and enjoy the new land. However, the later reiteration of the Lord’s anger against those rebels actually provides a fuller definition of ‘generation’ as being 40 years for,

He made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation of those who had done evil in His sight were gone. (Numbers 32:13 NIV)

In my opinion, we could therefore consider 40 year periods as being directly related to human activity rather than Godly activity. (Also see The Bible Study for more.)

An example of this application may be found in Eric Hadik’s introduction to the theory of cyclic activity throughout history, as summarised in The Natural Year on this blog.

Also read 2016 Prophetic Word and 11-Year Cycles. The latest posts on this topic may be found heading up the Cycles tag.

Next, we’ll consider eternity and prophecy, including a prophetic word to physicists, just before looking at fascinating insights on how the scriptures are consistent with, relativity and quantum physics – or more properly: on how modern scientists are catching up with ancient, inspired literature from the Living God!

On the nature of Time

Re-published from Cycles and Time hub as first background item for upcoming posts on the convergence of scripture and science:

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

“Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.  I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. ”  (Revelation 1:8 and 17-18, NKJV)

Thank you Lord that you exist outside and inside Time – you are Always and Now!  [Read prophetical word from Jesus, “I Am The Lord of Time”.]

In my humble opinion, time is non-linear.

y=xOur analytical mind-sets think time is a straight line and this is endorsed by the standard use in mathematical graphs of time as the ‘x’ or horizontal axis, as in this GCSE maths graph. Like an ‘x’ axis,  timelines list events in history – and we can use one for our own lives. After all, we live our lives in a sequence of events – one thing after another.

When observed in nature’s season and oceans, however, the passage of time-related activity is continuously periodic, that is, cyclical. So I regard time like a spiral because, when considered dynamically under the interaction of various influences, it’s just like a corkscrew being turned.

TIME SWINGS

Sine wave (credit Wikipedia)

Sine wave (credit Wikipedia)

Consider drawing a circle and the position of pencil, or finger, as you time the motion. Done this way it can be plotted on an ‘x-y’ graph.  With ‘x’ as time and ‘y’ as position on paper, it produces a curve looking like a wave of water – known as a sine wave- as in this diagram.

I was fascinated to learn in school physics that the tides and pendulum swings of a clock are ‘simple harmonic motion’ (SHM), which can be expressed as a trigonometric function of an angle. The ‘sine’ function is used to model periodic phenomena such as oscillations eg. sound and light waves, the position and velocity of oscillators, sunlight intensity and day length, and average temperature variations throughout the year (Wikipedia ‘Sine’)

Have you stood on a beach at high or low tide and noticed how long the water sits there? Its level slowly starts changing but at mid-tide the water rushes to the other extreme. It floods in full flow only to stall and stop, and then return to repeat its action – and time and time again.

sine-wave.jpgSHM and its geometrical depiction explains those difference in tidal speeds. Watch the brief video under ‘Occurrences’ in Wikipedia’s Sine Wave. It shows a wave as a curve of dashes being produced as a point on the circle’s circumference plots the waveform – but its own motion is screw-like, is it not?

TIME SPIRALS

Spiral stairway to cloudsTherefore, we can think of time like an invisible spiral turning like a corkscrew. Also, nature provides another excellent example – and it’s one that carries information – the DNA spiral, of which there are two in each molecule.

Let me explain some more with a simple analogy: on a spiral staircase we pass by different walls. If it’s in a castle turret there’d be a doorway on each floor and in the same  vertical wall of the well. Regard this wall as a certain kind of event and note how it connects with us, or is relevant to us, at different times and levels.

Spiral stairs franky242Hence, various types of event can crop up in a cyclical pattern of repetitions at different levels and show some development has taken place. So it is in history and with God’s plans too, could we but be aware, or receive divine revelation.

CONFIRMATION

I’m amazed to learn that financial analyst and expert in the cyclical nature of markets, Eric Hadik, also describes time as a spiral. I’ve known about him since 2010 but, in collecting my previous material and updating to include the above maths, I once again visited his website and found this newer one, 40 Year Cycle. In its introduction to cycles Eric states,

…life (the markets, etc.) should be viewed as a spiral – constantly revolving in a circular pattern BUT never returning to exactly the same spot from which it came.  It is progressing – forward & upward – even as it revolves in a type of circuit.

Continue reading about this periodic function of Time in Cycles and the Bible.

2017, the significance of 70 years and Smith-Wigglesworth’s vision

Upon reading the full transcript of Malcolm Duncan’s message it resonated deeply within my spirit – as well as directly relating to personal experiences. Please bear with me as some of it necessitates reiteration.

Revd Malcolm DuncanWe should note Malcolm’s reservations mirror those of Wigglesworth’s contemporaries over his unorthodox, questionable ministry methods – but whatever the Lord wanted to heal or expel got accomplished. (Bobby Conner recounts his astonishment at seeing a dubious church leader in Jesus’ presence but being rebuked because he’s the Lord’s servant!)  Malcolm’s remarks upon weighing what the Lord may be saying is an object lesson in the prophetic. NB:

“…Denis shouted “And brother I came into the kingdom in 1947” and the minute he said it I thought, “I think God is saying something to me”.
“I think Denis…he used you as a prophetic voice…So what came into my head was “the Smith Wigglesworth prophecy of 1947”.
“I turned to Pauline and said, “Did Smith Wigglesworth prophesy his prophecy in 1947?”, and she said, “I don’t know but I was born in 1947”.
“But as soon as I heard Denis I thought of the Smith Wigglesworth prophecy, which was very unusual for me and made me think, “What are you saying Lord?” I went back and I read it again and thought – “There is something stirring in my spirit here.” (Emphasis added)

Pauline’s reaction is mine too for I always recall that vision’s year is my birth year. Also, the timing of 50 years until my witnessing his prayer partner’s ecstatic joy at also seeing what will be happening across the British Isles is etched in my memory, as told in the previous post.

Yet there’s another reason – and it connects into Malcolm’s thoughts on 70 years as being significant. AND I can offer what he doesn’t – a confirmatory explanation! He said,

“2017 is 70 years after the prophecy was given. 2017 is also 50 years after Jean Darnall’s prophecy, which was given in 1967, when she saw little fires across the UK ablaze and then a river flowing through the UK and into Europe…

“Is God saying something with these two things? The 50th year after Jean Darnall’s prophecy, a year of jubilee. The 70th year after Smith Wigglesworth prophecy, just like there were 70 years of captivity for Israel…I feel like Daniel must have felt like when he found Jeremiah’s promise after 70 years and said, after 70 years I am going to do something.

NOW, this leads into something I’d intended to finish relating to revelations upon timings received last April.  I will be more concise than when I was trying to formulate and clarify what I was learning.:

Charlie ShampOn Good Friday 2015 Charles Shamp taught on the coming September’s fourth blood-moon as marking the beginning of the time of the Army of God. He believes it starts a two-year period that’s open for all believers, but especially for a glorious company praying things from the Age to Come. Thus, the two years until September 2017 will be an extra-special period, not judgmental and destructive.

The details are recounted in A Scriptural context of…the Blood-Moon Tetrad; and under ‘2015 Feast of Tabernacles Blood-Moon’ header in its follow-up post I reported Charlie’s reasons. Those posts were written last September, but the first ones on that Passover-Easter conference appeared a year ago this month. Furthermore, I blogged about the personal significance of 40 and 55 year periods in ‘God-incidents’ Validate Cycles and Point to Near-Future.

70-Years Period

I didn’t, however, explain the personal relevance of 70 years to 23rd September 2017.

As in those posts, Charlie relates that date to the prophet Daniel’s forecast and bequest to the Magi of his revelation on ‘The Star of Bethlehem’; a reappearance of which is expected in astronomical stellar and planetary alignments of 23.9.2017 (note: not astrology!). More specifically, this future event relates to Revelation 12:1 – John’s vision of the woman clothed with the sun. (For more read Nelson Walters Who Is the Woman of Rev.12?)

My reaction was – “My 70th birthday’s the day before!”.  So the 23rd September 2017 will start a new 70-year period for me.

70 is a biblically sacred number the two factors of which are perfect numbers, 7 and 10 representing perfection and completeness respectively. As such, it symbolizes perfect spiritual order carried out with all power, and can also represent a period of judgment (courtesy BibleStudy.org, which gives other examples to those Malcolm cites). Also, Jewish scholars teach that ‘The Torah has 70 Faces’, or levels of interpretation!

Last year saw 70th anniversary celebrations over the end of World War II, and other occasions. 2017 will be the 70th anniversary of crucial events in the birth of the state of Israel. In A Few Thoughts To Mark the Occasion of the 67th birthday of that state, Joel Rosenberg writes about a critical occasion in 1947 on the UN Partition Plan for Palestine upon the British withdrawal from that Mandated Territory, as follows:

‘To succeed, the Partition Plan needed a two-thirds majority vote of the U.N. General Assembly. With just days to go before that historic vote on November 29, 1947, however, supporters of the plan were still three votes short. Some have suggested that President Truman personally called leaders of other nations to encourage them to support the American position. Others say he didn’t but that staff in his administration did; the record is not clear. Either way, most historians—including David McCullough, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his extraordinary biography Truman—acknowledge that Truman wanted the plan to pass and played a role behind the scenes. In the end, Truman got his way. The Partition Plan dramatically passed at the last moment, thirty-three to thirteen, with ten abstentions’.

2017 – Unity

Malcolm Duncan gives his reasons for 2017 being a significant year and seeing a move of God in the UK, for which he believes God is asking us to get ready in many ways. I will cover this essential aspect in another post…

By the way, Erik Hadik, the financial analyst I occasionally blog about, gave this forecast last June on 2017:

‘The culmination of so many diverse cycle in 2017 keeps receiving powerful validation. For instance, the convergence of 8-year, 17-year and 40-year cycles – all related to China – have been forecast to accelerate into 2017.’

We shall see what we shall see…

2016 prophetic word and 11-year cycles

Doug_Addison credit Elijah ListOn 12th January Doug Addison published 2016: Get Ready for Realignments and New Assignments, which refers to a cyclical activity of the Lord throughout the 20th Century. It just so happens that early posts on this blog may confirm his thesis.

To read the full word Doug brings, click its above title. After mentioning major adjustments for many folk in how we regard and operate in church, this word covers a number of matters at length. He refers to an encounter on Christmas Day which gave him an insight into Bob Jones’ ‘Lumber-yard Experience’. Also, leading up to that Doug sensed a “distant rumble in the spirit” of the Lord coming and that His “glory is returning like never before”(!), adding this noteworthy caveat: “It is not coming in the current Church structure, though churches are invited“.  Another of the several details of this word is that keys of authority have been reassigned….“God is lining things up for a breakthrough in March!”

Now here’s what’s of special relevance. Doug explains,

Why 2016 Could Be The Start Of Something New

“The last global movement of God’s power started 22 years ago this month in January 1994 with the Toronto Blessing. It was very powerful and lasted a few years [over 10! RB] but was eventually spoken against and some major leaders disassociated themselves with it. This caused division and even brought judgment on the ministries and churches of those who spoke against what God was doing. This amazing move of God got bound by people with keys and authority and the result is that we have not seen a sustained global movement of God for 22 years. This is related to the keys that I saw being redistributed.

“There has been a move of God every 11 years dating back to the Azusa Street Revival in 1906. The 11-year intervals fall on the 1950 Healing Movement, the 1961 Charismatic Renewal, the 1972 Jesus People Movement and in 1983, the Third Wave Charismatic Movement. 1994 had the Toronto Blessing and 11 years later there would have been a movement that actually did start around 2005. But this amazing movement from God never got off the ground because of judgments. It was cut short, judged and bound by those with the keys of authority. The 2005 move started with unusual signs of God’s glory such as gold fillings appearing in people’s mouths, gold dust and gemstones appearing supernaturally in meetings. But the move never went global as God intended and was very limited. It is now 11 years after 2005, which is 2016 and there is a move of God coming this year. It will be with fire and oil from Heaven that cannot be touched by those who have not been prepared. This is what I saw in my Christmas morning encounter—an angel measuring for it and worker angels being assigned to bring it about.”

Being my birthday’s date, the opening reference to ’22’ naturally caught my attention right away (as well as being the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet). Next, Doug’s count of 11 years reminded me I’d written about the same periodicity soon after starting this blog. (Anyone who took up my 7th Anniversary hint to check the outlines in Cycles & Time will be ready for what’s below.)

[Also, Paul Keith Davis has said 11 years after the birth of modern Pentecostalism in 1885 at Bethshan Conference on Holiness and Healing in London, saw the publication in 1896 of Theodore Herzl’s famous call, The Jewish State. That year also saw Alexander Dowie commission his apostolic church calling for a return to an apostolic period”; see ‘Days of Wonder’, August 2014.]

Other 11-year Cycles

BillKoenig_hdrOn 5th January 2012 in Points to ponder: 2011-12 and Biblical historical/financial cycles I introduced my first readers to The White House accredited Christian correspondent William Koenig (Bio here) and his deep investigation of the work of Erik Hadik. Briefly outlining the nature of cycles I referred to their effects not only upon the environment but also upon our political and economical activity. For example, the cycle of conflict in the Middle-East corresponds closely with the 11-year sunspot cycle.

For almost  20 years this publisher of Koenig World Watch Daily and weekly Koenig’s Eye View from the White House has monitored important matters relating to Israel and likely connections with Biblical teaching and prophecy. That is, the simultaneous, or following closely, linkage between the way Israel is treated and various upheavals elsewhere has been found to be highly probable.

Moreover, a database of empirical evidence amassed from business affairs and observing international events gives a firm foundation for theories of cyclical influences.

Later that year, in concluding Paws 4 thought: weather quakes and cycles I referred again to Erik’s findings and quoted specifics on that 11-year period, as cited by Bill:

  • end of WWII – 1945, adding 11 years:
  • Suez War – 1956, another 11 years:
  • Six Days War – 1967, plus 11 years:
  • Camp David Accords – 1978-1979 (also Iran’s Islamic Revolution):
  • Persian Gulf War / Desert Storm (Part I) – 1990-91, another 11 years:
  • Sept 11th 2001 terror events and subsequent Afghan and Iraq wars (Part II).
  • 2012 – may introduce Persian Gulf Wars Part III? – Sunni/Shiite conflict?

Hadik claims the above dates are, in fact, preceded by those for the Palestine mandate (1922) and Hitler’s ascension (1933).  Furthermore, there is a 50/100 year cycle of major wars. He cites the Napoleonic war of 1812, US Civil War (1861-65), the Balkan Wars of 1912 as the real start of WWI,  1961-2 Cuban missile crisis and SE Asian wars.  2012 next!  (Source: page 5 of Hadik’s Earth in Transition 3+3 II.)

An Accurate 11-year Forecast

On 5th September 2012 Bill hit the nail of the head! I blogged about receiving his News Alert forecasting another ‘historical day’ in connection with Israel, militant Islam and the USA. It was headed:

  • A New World Order Speech – Major Terror Attacks – Is Something Coming?
  • 9-11-1990 plus 11 years = 9-11-2001 plus 11 years = 9-11-2012

On 11th September 2012, the American embassy in Egypt and consulate in Libya were besieged by Islamist mobs. This led to the cold-blooded murder of Ambassador Stevens and three consular staff in Benghazi. Hence, the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attack in New York became another date in infamy for the Middle-East.

Conclusion

So, in view of a demonstrable historical record for the 11-year cycle we can validate and give credence to Doug Addison’s claim about the importance of 2016 as another ‘peak’ in activity of a spiritual 11-year cycle. It is one to rejoice over rather than despair over…

Thank and praise you Lord for your mercy and grace and what You’re doing in the earth.

7th Anniversary of Watching

Courtsey StoonnDedicated to personal and cyber friends and readers who’ve followed my musings over the years – kindly bear with any repetition below.

On the last day of February seven years ago I emailed some friends in various churches about how I’d been stunned upon opening my Bible. Having been in touch about the previous year’s events in Lakeland, Florida, we continued chatting occasionally. However, my attention was suddenly directed to look at Biblical prophecies in much more depth.

We will see how this may be relevant to the previous post but first, in celebrating that date, let me repeat the opening of that two-part email (click title to read in full – and I hope the many links below don’t cause readers any scrolling problems):

The Endgame Is Now In Play Continue reading

Sept 2015, Rosh Hashanah 5776: a word on the Bride and the Lion of Judah

Continuing from the previous post and for what they may be worth, here’s my personal comments upon the extensive prophetic word brought by Johnny Enlow. Read it in full with graphics by clicking the following title’s link to The Elijah List – or, if continuous text is easier, read it here on Facebook.

You may think this post’s title isn’t directly relevant to the material, but it came to mind as I split what was originally one long piece into two posts because this ‘most potent’ word warrants more prominence. Only after its publication did I reflect upon and query the title, but then realised the prophetic promises and Johnny’s thoughts are all part of the Bride’s preparatory training to become like our Lord and Bridegroom. Later, one of the most powerful dreams I’ve ever had brought a personal validation of these words.:

ROSH HASHANAH 5776: THE YEAR YOU WILL ROAR

Discerning the times full image

“This September 14, 2015 begins a most remarkable year on the Hebraic Calendar that will exceed the expectations of even the most optimistic kingdom observer. Having finished three 7-year cycles (1994-2001, 2001-2008, 2008-2015 – see Rosh Hashanah 2014 word) we now enter into the fourth and defining 7 year period, that has birthed the age of the restoration of all things (Acts 3:21), and that has released a majestic Era of Renaissance (see my brand-new book: ‘7 Mountain Renaissance: Vision and Strategy Through 2050’).

“A pertinent scripture for this year and for the subsequent era is Daniel 12:3.

Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.

Those who are wise enough to understand the brilliance of Papa’s narrative for this day will position themselves to be able to shine as bright as the sky.”

Johnny continues by contrasting the perceptive perspectives of Caleb & Joshua and the 10 others sent to spy out the Promised Land. What he states about Caleb and his better ‘vision’ speaks straight into the personal word I was given last Autumn by Dale Mast, as recounted here.

It is essential for us to grasp, note and apply Johnny’s explanation of this, viz:

“The 10 spies saw through trouble-shooting lenses, Caleb saw through treasure-hunting lenses. We are in a ten-year window where it is imperative we gain Caleb vision. Caleb vision is against our nature. It is counterintuitive. It is even Pollyannish (sic). It is what is required for reformers of society who truly want to enter into their own prophetic promises. You are going to learn to trust your spirit eyes above your natural eyes and to almost automatically doubt your natural eyes. Media reports and projections will often give you clues as to the OPPOSITE of what God is really doing and as to what kingdom is actually ferociously advancing.”

He then provides examples of God’s reality behind perceived threats of radical Islam:

“These are just two examples of where the mainline Media can lead you to believe the opposite of what is actually taking place. We have needed corrective lenses as to true reality and some are ahead in the process and some are behind. We must learn to go on His reports or we will remain confused, anxious and disoriented.”

Next, he reminds readers of having shared for several years a prophetic time sequence of three definitive progressions: 1) Awakening. 2) Arising. 3) Shining.  After reviewing the first two he writes:

“The third season is Shining and it begins this Rosh Hashanah.  Now begins the extended season of “Shining as Bright as the Sky” and it is now where we begin to contend in earnest for the nations as our inheritance.”

Towards the close of this extensive prognostication, Johnny makes an interesting claim that may apply to our poor weather of late – and we should note September’s extreme, unusual weather in Israel, especially over Rosh Hashana! (Breaking Israel News, “It felt like the Apocalypse”). The intense desert storms there and across Saudi Arabia, both centres of their respective faiths, could indicate the Holy Spirit is about to blow strongly throughout the Jewish and Muslim world. This is what Johnny Enlow writes:

“I believe that where the unusual rains come this next year will be a sign where God is at work in an unusual way. Global centers of reformation will arise from places that get inundated by El Nino (The Child in Spanish, named after Jesus, as the phenomenon was first noted by fishermen off the coast of Peru around Christmas time) and so where the natural showcases excess rain there we will also see abundant spiritual rains about to develop….”

There’s such a lot in this forecast, especially on how he believes the economy will move and I particularly note his sound emphasis on October as being the month of surprises,  which fits my understanding of economic cycles outlined in Cycles & The Bible. This will be covered in my proposed review of forecasts for September.  I note Johnny’s remark on the power of making negative decrees.

My quoting extracts simply cannot do justice to such an extensive, profound forecast. Do read the full account, as linked above, asking the Lord to help you weigh with  discernment.
