The Great Commission

The following day on Friday, April 26 at 8:58 p.m., 3 hours and 19 minutes (199 mins) after sunset, God brought the town of Capernaum in Galilee, Israel to mind, and I was led to August 14, 2024 as the date to visit it – 3 months and 19 days away. Amazingly, the length of time it was after sunset matched the exact time in months and days it was away until my visit to Capernaum! (3 hours, 19 minutes / 3 months, 19 days). I didn’t actually discover that until starting to write this paragraph the following day! So, yet again, that was just another way that God proved that He was the inspiration behind this visit, and it didn’t just come from my head! Capernaum was the location next to the Sea of Galilee where Jesus lived and performed many of His miracles in the surrounding area during His ministry. He also famously condemned it for not repenting, despite the many miracles performed there (Matthew 11:23 & Luke 10:15). This visit was inspired in the 3rd hour of the Jewish night, and as

Hamas, the Third Jewish Temple, October 7 & the Red Heifer

On April 9 at 8:14 p.m., three days after God inspired my visit to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, He brought Auschwitz to mind for a 57th time, and I was led to August 28, 2024 as the date to visit it. That meant I would leave Israel that day, and visit Auschwitz that same day in Poland, leaving Israel on my 18th day. This visit to Auschwitz was inspired 2 hours and 9 minutes after sunset at 6:05 p.m., or at the start of the 3rd hour of the Jewish night. This was now the third visit to Auschwitz that God had inspired for this trip, being inspired exactly one Hebrew month since the first (2 Adar II – 2 Nisan, 5784). Interestingly, the first visit was inspired on March 12 at 1:29 p.m., and this visit was inspired on April 9, 129 minutes after sunset, echoing the time of the original visit, 28 days earlier! So, quite an unusual coincidence there, although I assume that was intentional on God’s behalf, to prove that He was behind it. It was inspired exactly four months to the d

The Role of a Prophet

On April 5, 2024, I came to the conclusion that what God was doing through me in my book was essentially the work of a prophet. God has appointed prophets throughout the church in order to deliver a message to His people, both within and outside of the church. Those who believe, and those who don’t. The point is to edify the body of Christ, so that people are encouraged and exhorted to listen to God and do His will. We all need from time to time encouragement in our faith to stay true to God’s word and follow the right path. Without that direction or encouragement, we may lose faith and fall away from the correct path. It is in that vein that my book has been written, with direct messages from God that serve to not only prove His existence, but those of Jesus as the Messiah as well.  God has drawn upon many aspects of both Christianity and Judaism in order to prove His message, from both the Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox churches. He has drawn extensively from Judaism in order to p

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 approximate length o

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 immediately after Go

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 Sunday, not in

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 other months

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 day of John the B
