A post-Resurrection miracle as a ‘mystery’ now revealed – part 2

[First published 2018]

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]

Prophecy: “2018: I will impart to My Prophets the ability to see clearly My Numbers…” (delivered by Leisa Ebere, read in full here).

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.

MATHEMATICIANS’ MYSTERIES

Roger Penrose, “The Road to Reality: A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe”, Knopf (2005)

Therefore, the modern definition of ‘mystery’ as an unsolved puzzle, or something difficult or impossible to explain is comparatively trite!

Even the eminent mathematician-physicist Sir Roger Penrose tends toward a circumscribed perception of reality when using this term, as quoted and discussed in RTU’s Three Worlds, Three Mysteries.

According to its author Joseph, Penrose posits the existence of three “realms” existing around us and “which brings three mysteries” that raise interesting questions on how the world should be viewed. These realms are the physical, mental and Platonic mathematical worlds:

Of course, such hypothetical mysteries cannot equal the much deeper ‘mystery’ of revelatory scripture! Yet in positing that mathematical entities don’t belong in space or time and are eternal and unchanging, Penrose is approaching our understanding of the mathematical aspects of the Bible. His recent thoughts upon consciousness originating at a quantum level may approach ideas I’ve broached in the convergence of science and scripture.

JESUS POINTS TO MATHS

Continuing from Part 1 on Apostle John’s account of the miraculous provision of 153 large fish and the re-blog of New Zealander Joanne Rolston’s posts on it, we learn that she asked Jesus direct on why such specific details are noted. Let me quote some pertinent parts of her highly personal account:

I asked the Lord about the meaning of the 153 fish in John 21:10, and I was given a maths answer. Amazingly I grasped the explanation. Having to learn statistics in order to get my Diploma of Business helped. I had to overcome a lot to learn the math behind statistics…(including) my loathing for maths. Fortunately, I have a very patient husband who helped me with the mechanics of maths in statistics.

“But I kept complaining to God. “Why do I have to learn this?” I protested, “We’re never going to use it in our business!”

“Make friends with maths” the Lord told me. Not reconcile myself to maths, not become acquainted with maths; He wanted me to believe I could learn maths and take an interest in it! It was a big ask. In a Father’s instruction, He says;

“Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7)

So we read that Joanne progressed and mentions Factorial numbers and Venn diagrams as being the first things she learned in statistics. These were the basis of all the wonderful things she was later shown about that ‘action replay’ fishing trip by seven of Jesus’ disciples.

She succinctly explains the unusual significance of the 153 fish by maths of factorials and square root of the third prime number (3), as well as geometrical constructions and proofs in diagrammatic forms, PLUS their relevance to the triune relationship of God, Christ and mankind.

Now examine these facts more closely and delve deeper into the ‘mysteries of the kingdom’:

That historic catch’s mathematical meaning is a surprising shock to we moderns but, in the immense sweep of history, such intellectual knowledge was a relatively ‘recent’ development to those living in the inter-Testamental times of the Graeco-Roman world. The principal propositions, or theories and proofs, of geometry had been compiled by Euclid of Alexandria about 300 years before Jesus’ life. To give us some perspective, this is the same period since the accession of George I (1714) and the appearance of John and Charles Wesley to lead a major evangelical revival, from which was born the fourth largest church denomination in England, Methodism (in Oxford, 1729).

Fascinating Fact: the first proposition of Euclid’s Elements of Geometry is to construct an equilateral (three sides of equal length) triangle by describing a Vesica Piscis (known as ‘Vessel of Fish’!) with a pair of compasses. It’s done by drawing one circle and then a second one exactly the same size, but with its centre on the circumference of the first.

The common, overlapping area looks like a canoe and the ratio of its length to width is 265:153, which closely approximates the square root of 3 as calculated by Archimedes of Syracuse.

All three symbols, triangle and circles with intersecting segment, feature in the ‘mystery’ of the 153 fish – note the use of equilateral triangle as this will be considered another time:

It’s noteworthy that John closes his Gospel account of Jesus’ main post-Resurrection appearances with this most tantalising morsel:

‘And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.’ (John 20:30)

That statement lodged indelibly within my soul when a teenager and I determined to set on a quest to discover the fullness of Jesus’ work. A lifetime later, I learn that ‘seal’ sets the scene for the last chapter’s account of the amazing fishing expedition. That is, it is a clear signpost of the next and final miracle’s deep significance to the early Church.

UNLOCKING THE SIGN MIRACLES OF JOHN – SIGN 8: 153 FISH

Jonathan R Hill, whose above-titled book explains how ‘pi’, the mathematical ratio of circumference and diameter of every circle is found in Genesis 1:1, and that of ‘e‘ (base of natural logarithmic and base rate of growth in all growing processes), are found in John 1:1, devotes a full chapter to ‘Sign 8’, the miraculous catch of 153 fish.

Consider this summary of his main points on Sign 8:

  • It is the 8th ‘sign’ miracle recorded by John and found in his book only. First and only post-Resurrection sign-miracle and last of the eight, thus reflecting the divinity of Jesus as ‘first and last’ and the ‘alpha and omega’! (I now recall hearing Him tell me during a ministry-team prayer, “I Am Alpha and Omega” – watch for more on this later.)
  • Time and death represented in this succession by number 7 is followed by 8, the number of resurrection (a new beginning, as blogged in January), underscored by 8 resurrections in scripture other than that of Jesus.
  • Jesus’ command to cast nets from the other side of the boat, the right, symbolises and prefigures God visiting the Gentiles and taking a people for His name.
  • The Greek word ‘ekklesia’ translated as ‘church’ means nothing more than ‘called out of’. Thus, the fish being caught out of the sea reflect the characteristic of the Gentile church as those who are ‘called out of’ the world.
  • 153 is of considerable mathematical and typological significance and represents the fullness of the Gentiles.
  • Key composites of 153 are 7 (spiritual perfection), 10 (numerical completeness) and 9 (finality) because (7+10) x 9 = 153 (= 9 x 17).

Jonathan makes many more deep connections between scriptures and Sign 8 and their importance to the Church and the Consummation of the Age. Building upon the 17-rowed triangle of the number 153 displayed in Jo-Blog’s Go Fish, this is how Jonathan describes this mathematical principle (drag to enlarge, noting number 153 forms an equilateral triangle of sides 17 x 17 x 17):

CONCLUSION

From this brief overview of well-researched data we can confidently conclude that the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven include mathematical principles as an important part of its transcendental wisdom. Selah!

A post-Resurrection miracle as a ‘mystery’ now revealed – part 1

[First published 2018]

Not long after Father God brought Jesus the Messiah back from the dead by His Spirit, the One who’s the radiance of His glory went once again in search of His ex-fisherman friends. Of the two sets of brothers who’d been partners in the fishing trade on the Sea of Galilee before deserting their nets to follow a peripatetic teacher, their boss had an exceptionally severe crisis of self-confidence.

GONE FISHING!

So this ‘son of Jonah’, named Simon, decided to return to the simple life of sitting in a boat with buddies and dragging a net in the hope of getting a catch – but it proved to be an exercise in futility!

A few years earlier on that inland sea, the four fishing partners encountered and had been ‘called’ by The One to follow Him. Jesus amazed the crowds there with His teaching and had asked Simon if He could address them from his moored boat. Jesus knew the men had worked hard all night without having caught anything because, when He’d finished speaking, He told Simon to sail into deep water and lower his nets despite the fruitless night – Simon was overwhelmed by the result!  They’d got such a large number of fish that another boat was called for – then both began to sink with their massive weight!!

So Simon changed his tune. Upon hearing Jesus’ instruction he’d objected because of the poor night, yet respectfully referred to Him as “Master” – but in amazement at the fresh catch breaking nets and sinking boats, Simon addressed Him with the superior term of “Lord”; thus suggesting he was beginning to understand the status of this astonishing teacher. In the account by one of those partners, John, they’d previously met Jesus immediately after His baptism in the river Jordan and Andrew had brought his brother Simon to see Jesus, who then spoke of his identity and implicit destiny, “You are Simon son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas,” (which is translated ‘A Stone’, Petros/Peter: John 1:42).

DSCF3120

After that huge catch of unspecified quantity, Jesus called Simon into his destiny: “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men!”  That is, a fisher of men. When they’d landed their boats the four foresook all and followed Him (Luke 5:10-11). Continue reading

Prophecy Progress Checks #1: Eire, UK & EU – #2: billionaire puppet-master George Soros

After having considered the 8th, amongst many, sign of progress towards the complete fulfillment of the prophetic word delivered by David Noakes three years ago of the Lord bringing about the downfall of the E.U., we now check progress on two other prophecies, which you may wish to check first via links shown:

BRITAIN & EIRE v. The E.U.

  1. UK with Eire and Brexit-related dream of Ireland v. Germany, with Update
  2. Breakthrough for ALL the United Kingdom
  3. Word for Great Britain & Northern Ireland
  4. Laying the axe to the EU’s roots in Britain and Eire.

Thank you to Roger Jervois in South Africa for alerting me to background briefing by the BBC on the historical and unique legal nature of The Republic of Ireland’s relationship with the EU. He says it “gives clear background to possible sources of divergence.”

At the close of link 4, I noted that Leo Varadkar, prime minister of the Irish republic, has ruled against setting up a hard border and thus no need for any Brexit ‘backstop’ as part of the EU Withdrawal Agreement. This week he confirmed that’s the case and Jacob Rees-Mogg MP picked up on that declaration:

WestmOnster succinctly summarises the issue:

‘The issue of a hard border has been used by Brussels in the EU negotiations, with the much-hated backstop one of the end products of that. The attempt by the EU side to lock the UK into their orbit is why Theresa May’s deal currently has no chance of getting through Parliament.

‘But the simple fact is that the British government aren’t going to put up a hard border, nor are the Irish government. Are the EU going to send over their soon-to-be army?

‘As the Republic of Ireland’s plan makes clear: “In planning for the real possibility of a No Deal Brexit, the government’s approach will continue to be guided by the same priorities…the protection of the peace process and the Good Friday Agreement, including the principle of consent and there being no hard border”.’

GEORGE SOROS

  1. Is Brexit an ‘Act of God’? Yes but it challenges Churches!
  2. Soros defeated by an act of God (Breitbart)
  3. Fulfilled Prophecy #30: press scoop exposes anti-Brexit schemers
  4. Is the Lord about to cut roots over the Channel and cut strings over the ‘Pond’? (includes Veronika West’s prophetic dream ‘Puppet Strings Over America’).

On Wednesday, Veronika posted a startling sequence of short updates on Ignite Ireland Ministry Facebook from the Lord about this Hungarian-American investor’s passing into eternity:

Ignite Ireland Ministry published 20 December @ 12:59

Ignite Ireland Ministry published 20 December @ 18:16

Ignite Ireland Ministry published 20 December @ 18:37

Kamchatka peninsular in far eastern Russia, south of Bering Straits

Ignite Ireland Ministry published 20 December @ 19:05

Only now, as I insert these last screen-grab images, do I spot the common denominator to both parts of this blog – IRELAND!

Whatever is the Lord saying?

And that all-enveloping tree symbolic of the EU is the significant feature in the vision of Great Britain and the EU received by Wendy Alec thirteen years ago.

PS – UPDATE (26.12)

Later in the same day I published the above, Veronika posted this at 22:52 hrs, closing with a comment from her Facebook thread:

‘A POWERFUL PROPHETIC SIGN CONCERNING BREXIT AND THE LEGACY OF GEORGE SOROS; WE HAVE ENTERED INTO A SEASON OF SUDDEN AND SEVERE SHIFTS, A DIVINE RE-ALIGNMENT IS TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATIONS.

‘When I saw the headline below, “LORD ASHDOWN DIES AT 77”, immediately the Holy Spirit began to speak to me concerning BREXIT, THE LEGACY OF GEORGE SOROS AND WHAT IS NOW TAKING PLACE PROPHETICALLY ACROSS THE NATIONS, “77”- DOUBLE SEVENS, I BELIEVE THIS IS A POWERFUL PROPHETIC SIGN CONCERNING ‘BREXIT AT THIS TIME’; As many of you may already know that the number (7) signifies ‘divine completion and perfection’; a divine mandate being fulfilled…!

‘BREXIT : I PROPHESY THE DIVINE MANDATE OVER THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND TO LEAVE THE EUROPEAN UNION WILL BE COMPLETELY AND PERFECTLY FULFILLED”..!

‘Now In looking a little closer at who Lord Ashdown was I discovered he was directly connected to George Soros and has been working very closely with him in the last 2 years to overturn the democratic vote of the people of Great Britain and also working strategically together to overthrow the BREXIT Result. [RB: see Footnote] As I read these things I was not at all surprised, as the Lord had already begun to speak to me just a few days ago concerning George Soros where I was shown a large Tree being suddenly uprooted and destroyed by violent Winds – this was prophetically symbolic of THE LEGACY OF GEORGE SOROS BEING DESTROYED; See; Words posted- GEORGE SOROS

‘As I prayed in the Spirit about these things, I heard the Spirit say,

‘I PROPHESY WE ARE NOW ENTERING INTO A SEASON OF: N, NOTABLE – E, EXTRAORDINARY – W, WONDERS OF HIS GLORY BEING MADE MANIFEST IN THE EARTH.’

Prayer Point to Consider, Take Note; Veronika, interesting historical fact, 777 years ago, the Mongols invaded Europe, the invasion into Western Europe was finally halted when Khan Ögedei died on DECEMBER 11 1241, this feels like it could be significant, and prior to the death of this man, his armies had laid waste to everything between China and Europe, they conquered and occupied all of Russia and Eastern Europe, in addition to the Middle East. Now 777 years later, Europe is being invaded again, by immigration. Let’s believe! Thanks, Abe Troyer.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Preface

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

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

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

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

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

Jonathan Hill, West Sussex

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

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

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

BLOOD MOON 27th JULY 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE CHILEAN MINERS’ RESCUE

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

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

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

Grateful thanks to the unknown creator of this splendid illustration

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

BREXIT – THE ESCAPE OF A NATION

WHAT’S AT STAKE

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

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

THE SIGNIFICANCE

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

There may be a logical progression of signs here.:

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

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

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

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

THE TIMING

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

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

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

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

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

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

BACKGROUND:

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

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

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

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

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

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

UPDATE:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

YET AGAIN media uses words Christian seer heard from God! (Fulfilled Prophecies #35, #36 & #37)

Thursdays are normally a writing day prior to the long weekend, so I’d have noted and blogged the following news but for being busy on necessary repairs. Therefore, it was late in the day when I read yet another mainstream media headline using words that Veronika West had brought as from the Lord on the contentious nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court.

As I hadn’t opportunity to emphasise the earlier instances then, as well as looking at the latest, we need to refer back to details of Update on Prophecies re US Supreme Court. Listed therein are several of Veronika’s reports of visions and words received on that matter, together with an apparently unrelated one about ‘puppet-master’ George Soros’ influence being cut – and then we learned of his link to anti-Kavanaugh protesters!

So let’s revisit and flesh-out details noted from her Facebook, noting that the latest to be confirmed is the oldest:

FULFILLED PROPHECY #35

  • 24 Sept: ‘AN URGENT WORD ON THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…! “YOU SAY, “DELAY, DELAY, DELAY BUT GOD SAYS THE THIEF HAS BEEN CAUGHT AND HE WILL REPAY, REPAY AND REPAY, SEVEN TIMES HE WILL REPAY…’! [for full text read report here]
  • 4 OCT: How Jeff Blake’s One-Week Delay Helped Clear Brett Kavanugh’s Name. The Weekly Standard ‘s full-some article begins (emphasis mine):‘When Arizona Republican senator Jeff Flake insisted on an additional one-week delay of the Kavanaugh confirmation vote in order to allow the FBI to conduct a supplemental background-check investigation into allegations of sexual assault, many Republicans feared that it would accomplish nothing other than provide time for more people to smear Kavanaugh with new false allegations. In fact, the delay has actually helped clear Kavanaugh’s name. FBI investigation turns up no ground-breaking information…’
  • The article examines claims against Kavanaugh, including those of prof. Christine Blasey Ford [Note: Dr Ron Jager, a 25-year veteran of the I.D.F. who served as Commander of Central Psychiatric Military Clinic for Reserve Soldiers, writes in Trauma and Dr Ford’s Testimony: ‘Dr. Ford spoke about an alleged event that in her own words was a traumatic event of life-changing proportions. Yet…mental health professionals would have difficulty in connecting Trauma to what Dr. Ford spoke about during her testimony…there were countless examples of the lack of coherent Trauma-related examples that would give an indication of PTSD as a result of a traumatic and life changing event…we were party to a performance by Dr. Ford (whose voice) fluctuated back and forth leaving us wondering how much was real and how much was imaginary or even how much was made up along the way.’]

FULFILLED PROPHECY #36

  • 28 Sep: ‘A QUICK WORD FOR THE NATION OF AMERICA…KAVANAUGH HEARING..! “FEAR NOT! SEE! THE HEAD OF LEVIATHAN HAS BEEN TAKEN OFF”, says the Spirit of God.’ [for full impact listen to video message]
  • 28 Sep: SOMEONE JUST SENT ME THIS LINK, CHECK THIS OUT AND LISTEN TO THE END WHERE THIS LADY MAKES REFERENCE TO “CUTTING OFF THE HEAD OF THE SNAKE”, this is amazing confirmation of what God spoke to me last night as I watched Dr Ford give her testimony.

 

FULFILLED PROPHECY #37

  • 2 Oct: ‘CHECK OUT HEADLINES; “ANNOUNCEMENT HAS THE NATION SHOOK”; “I saw a woman bowed down weeping bitterly before the King of Kings, the SOUND of her CRIES echoed through the realm of the Spirit like MIGHTY THUNDER, the SOUND of her WEEPING SHOOK THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THE HEAVENS”!’ [29 Sept and 7Nov’16 ‘fall of giants’/’hang Haman’].

EARTHQUAKE!

McConnell Makes Announcement on Kavanaugh That Has the Nation SHOOK (Details)

SEVEN-FOLD SPIRIT OF GOD

Noteworthy too are the prophesied and reported references to number seven, starting on the evening of 1st October and coming to its first completion by 7th October:

7

A WORD CONCERNING THE SUPREME COURT OF AMERICA; JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH; A ‘7TH’ FBI INVESTIGATION:…;”WATCH! FOR A DIVINE CONVERGENCE OF THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD IS NOW TAKING PLACE OVER THE SUPREME COURT, A DIVINE WORK OF COMPLETION AND PERFECTION IS TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATION

‘Last night as I went before the Lord again in prayer concerning Judge Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court, I said to the Lord, “Father let us reason together, this innocent man has now been investigated 6 times already and now must endure a 7th time!?”, and before I could get all the words out of my mouth the Spirit of God spoke to me saying,

“Daughter of man, I AM THE SEVEN-FOLD SPIRIT AND I SHALL HAVE MY WAY AND I SHALL HAVE THE LAST SAY IN THIS NATION AND IN THE SUPREME COURT, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU AGAIN, SEVEN TIMES I SHALL CAUSE THE THIEF TO REPAY WHAT HE HAS STOLEN, YES! SEVEN-FOLD RESTORATION SHALL SURELY COME, LISTEN! FOR MANY HAVE SAID, ‘NOT ANOTHER INVESTIGATION?’, BUT I SAY TO YOU WATCH! FOR THIS WILL BE A SIGN THAT DIVINE JUSTICE HAS TRIUMPHED OVER THE PLANS AND PURPOSES OF THE ENEMY IN THE LAND AND OVER THE SUPREME COURT, WATCH! FOR A DIVINE CONVERGENCE OF MY SEVEN SPIRITS IS NOW TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATION AND OVER THE SUPREME COURT, FOR IN THE NEXT 7 DAYS, 7 WEEKS AND 7 MONTHS THERE WILL BE A SUPERNATURAL SHIFT AND A DIVINE REALIGNMENT TAKING PLACE IN THE NATION AS I WORK ALL THINGS TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE ME, WATCH! AS I GO UP BEFORE THIS NATION, WATCH! AS I GO UP BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT AS THE MIGHTY BREAKER TO BREAK TO PIECES EVERY ROCK OF RESISTANCE AND REBELLION, WATCH! AS MY SPIRIT OF TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS NOW MOVES TO EXPOSE AND UNCOVER, OVERTHROW AND OVERTURN EVERY THRONE OF WITCHCRAFT AND WICKEDNESS IN THE LAND, FOR TRULY I TELL YOU I AM NOW BRINGING TO COMPLETION AND PERFECTION THAT WHICH I HAVE STARTED IN THIS NATION AND IN THE SUPREME COURT OF AMERICA”!

Friday’s Daily Telegraph (5th October) closes its US Editor’s report ‘Republicans believe FBI probe clears Kavanaugh’ as follows:

‘Sarah Sander, the White House press secretary, said, “We have allowed the FBI to do exactly what they do best. We haven’t micro-managed this process.”

‘ A clearly exasperated Mr Trump tweeted last night; “This is now the 7th time the FBI has investigated Judge Kavanaugh. If we made it 100, it would still not be good enough for the Obstructionist Democrats.”

Finally, beware that these shenanigans could happen in the UK too as a result of the judiciary beginning to make politically-based judgments instead of those based solely upon case law (Charles Moore: Will our judges be judged as Brett Kavanaugh has been?).

Triple validation of Jesus’ visitation

A little time was needed to gain a fuller understanding of that awesome visitation – the absolute holiness of the Lord Jesus Christ in contrast to my personal sinful nature. No wonder I expected to die and was convicted of my sin!

That encounter used two very personal aspects of my life to grab my attention, thereby validating the experience as real, not an imaginary one. Even more amazingly, both validations are directly related to the 1st and 2nd Advents!  Thus, they couldn’t fail to enhance my interest in End-Times and which had been launched a few years earlier by The Invisible Hand (described here).

The First Advent was the time when Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem of Judea about two thousand years ago. Hence, the four weeks leading into Christmas are designated within the church calendar as Advent, and which start the church year.

The Second Advent is coming soon and is expected to begin in the city of Jerusalem.

FIRST VALIDATION

I inwardly ‘knew’ the heavenly visitor was indeed Jesus, and that the impressive action was a foretaste of his promised return, when He will come in all His power and glory.

The event reminded me of my favourite picture in mother’s Missal, or service book of the Roman Mass.  This gave the content of every Sunday service throughout the year with a diagram symbolising the theme for each service.  As a boy keen on astronomy I’d been fascinated by the picture for First Sunday in Advent. This depicted Jesus standing on the clouds over a burning earth in the midst of sun, moon and falling stars, indicative of events before his Second Advent!

…The night Jesus Christ takes me to task and rescues me!

Upon awaking twenty-nine years ago today (14th September 1989) I knew events in the early hours had been a landmark in my destiny. The previous evening in Pangbourne, Berkshire, I’d firmly shut the door to hearing any more about God’s Good News! But the night had been spent at 212 E_Road in Stockport, Cheshire, for a life-changing event. (Hence my laughing at the title of yesterday’s post GPS #21.2: God’s Voice Thunders. That number had also cropped up after I first blogged about this testimony!)

In a most unusual dream that night I went back in time and place. A dream so lucid that nearly 30 years later it remains vividly etched within me. Here’s what happened (dream content blue font, comments black italics).:
