February 22, 2024 On February 22, God inspired me to book a hotel at Christchurch Airport, New Zealand, for March 27–28, 2024, just under five weeks away. February 22 happened to be exactly 13 years to the day since a magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the city, killing 185 people and destroying thousands of houses and buildings. This struck me as rather odd that God should inspire me to book a trip to Christchurch on this day, as it is the first time that He has ever inspired a visit to Christchurch in this series of trips. To choose this day seemed more by design than coincidence! The earthquake occurred at 12:51 p.m. on February 22, 2011, which was interesting, because on the day that God inspired me to book this trip (February 22, 2024), we were in lunation number 1251 (using the Brown lunation system devised in 1923, 101 years earlier). Lunation number 1251 began with the super new moon on February 10, 2024, and would run until the new moon on March 10, about 29.5 days later – the ap
April–May 2049 On February 1, 2024 at about 7:53 p.m., as I was walking down the beach at Tahunanui in Nelson, New Zealand, I suddenly felt quite a strong spirit come into me, and it led me to ask God to give me more spirit and power to do more good. About 18 minutes later at 8:11 p.m. – 37 minutes before sunset, God brought the city of Krakow in Poland to mind, and I was led to April 3–5, 2049 as the dates to visit it. I immediately recognised these dates as the potential crucifixion and resurrection dates of Jesus in 33 A.D. Krakow is located about 70 km (44 miles) east of Auschwitz, and this is where I would stay if I were to be visiting Auschwitz. God did not inspire a visit to Auschwitz at this stage, but if He were to add one, I would assume it would be on the 4th of April, midway between my arrival and departure dates in Krakow. Nevertheless, that was not a given, and God could choose any of the three days (or more than one) in which to inspire a visit to Auschwitz. Almost immed
Ash Wednesday On February 14, 2024 (Valentine’s Day), just after 10 a.m., God brought the King David Hotel in Jerusalem to mind, and I was led to October 9–13, 2024 as the dates to stay. This was just under eight months, or precisely 34 weeks away. October 9 happened to be the 7th of Tishrei in the Hebrew calendar – the 7th day of the 7th month in the religious calendar, or the 7th day of the 1st month in the civil calendar. It makes up part of the ‘10 Days of Awe’ that run from Rosh Hashanah / Feast of Trumpets on the 1st of the month, through to Yom Kippur / Day of Atonement on the 10th day of the month. This period is also known as the ‘10 Days of Repentance’, during which Jews reflect on any wrongdoings they may have made, and seek forgiveness for them. It wasn’t until two days later on Friday after sunset, that I discovered that February 14 was also the first day of Lent, also known as Ash Wednesday – the 40-day fasting period leading up until the resurrection of Christ on Easter
500 Days On February 14, 2024, 69 days after God inspired me to travel down to Hokitika, I made an interesting discovery. February 19 would mark exactly 500 days since leaving Alexandra on October 7, 2022, and had been travelling around ever since. It is also the 50th day of the year. At that point, I would have spent precisely 40 weeks in hotels and motels (including two nights I won as a prize on August 8, 2023), 10 weeks (70 nights) in my car, and 150 nights in my tent, for a total of 500 nights. Incidentally, my first and third proposed baptisms were also separated by exactly 500 days! (Feb 18, 2021 – Jul 3, 2022). February 19 would also mark exactly 7 months and 7 days since I ran out of money on July 12, 2023, and had to start sleeping between my car and tent. Interestingly, 7 months and 7 days between July 12, 2023 and February 19, 2024 is exactly 222 days! There is no other month in the year where if you start and add 7 months and 7 days that it adds up to 222 days. All the oth
Jerusalem 2029 On January 7, 2024, God brought the city of Jerusalem to mind, and I was led to March 6–7, 2029 as the dates to visit it – just over five years away. March 6th happened to be the 19th of Adar, 5789 – what would be my 52nd birthday in the Hebrew calendar, two days short of my birthday in the Gregorian calendar on March 8th. It also happened to be the 52nd overall trip that God had inspired in this series of trips. The 51st one being inspired three days earlier on January 4.  January 7 was an interesting date for God to choose to inspire this trip, for several reasons. First, it was Epiphany in the Catholic Church and some other churches, marking the visitation of the three wise men to the baby Jesus following His birth, and the revelation that He was the Son of God. It also marked the manifestation of God to the Gentiles.   There are subordinate commemorations of Jesus’s baptism, and the wedding at Cana where He turned water into wine. Secondly, it marks the main feast da
Jerusalem 2049 On January 4, 2024 at 10:26 a.m., God brought the King David Hotel in Jerusalem to mind, and I was led to August 17–20, 2049 as the dates to stay. This fell about 25 years and 7 months away! Whether God intends me to go on that trip or not, or whether I will still be alive at that point is moot! If I am still alive in the year 2049, I would be just under 72-and-a-half years old at that point. Quite feasible that I would still be alive in 2049, although it’s not guaranteed. In fact, I would be precisely 3,780 weeks old on August 17, 2049, as both dates fall on a Tuesday. I was born on Tuesday, March 8, 1977, after nightfall. As it happens, August 17, 2049 is the 3rd day of the 33rd week of the year (ISO week numbering), and it falls exactly 28 years to the day since another one of my trips was due to begin on August 17, 2021 (2nd “Noah’s Flood” trip). That too fell on the 3rd day of the 33rd week of the year (ISO week numbering). There was a third additional trip that was
Shavuot 2034 This is truly remarkable! On Monday, December 18, God brought the King David Hotel in Jerusalem to mind, and I was led to May 24–26, 2034 as the dates to stay. This happened to link up with an earlier trip that God inspired for May 2034 back in 2021. He inspired that trip on the 14th of Nisan (Passover), for a visit to Auschwitz on the Second Passover (14 Iyyar / May 3, 2034). Two days later on the 16th of Nisan (Feast of First Fruits and the potential day of Christ’s resurrection), He inspired a visit to Jerusalem from May 4-8, 2034. If you accept a crucifixion date of Friday, April 3, 33 A.D. (14 Nisan – Passover), then the first Pentecost / Shavuot after that date was Sunday, May 24, 33 A.D. / 6 Sivan. Thus, this new visit to Jerusalem would occur on the 2,001st anniversary of the first Pentecost in 33 A.D.! (Ignoring the Julian – Gregorian 13-day date change). Incredibly, May 24, 2034, is also the 6th of Sivan in the Hebrew calendar (Shavuot). Thus, this visit would
