Elijah, the Number 70 and the 3.5 Year Drought

Another interesting development.   God got me to sit down at my computer this morning and scroll through my book. As a result, I made this discovery!   July 14, 2022 – the day I was due to depart Israel and visit Auschwitz – exactly 70 weeks since the 70th day of the year, was also exactly 3.5 years to the day since God got me to put up a quote about Elijah on my website (1 Kings 18:43-44) – about the end of the 3.5 year drought in Israel!   Joe Biden’s main work in Israel was on July 14, 2022.   Today, December 28, is day 770 since God inspired the July 14, 2022 visit to Auschwitz on November 19, 2020. I was also due to visit Auschwitz again today.   Oddly enough, the NZX 50 sharemarket index closed up 0.70% on July 14, 2022 – exactly 70 weeks since the 70th day of the year!   Complex? Yes! Anything to do with me? No! All God’s work. I am just trying to figure it out!  

Elijah & The Number 70

Precisely 180 days later on December 4, 2022 – the 70th day of the Jewish civil year – God added the next destination to this trip; Jerusalem. The dates I was led to choose were December 26–27, the day before my next visit to Auschwitz. December 26th was an interesting date for me, because it fell exactly three-and-a-half years to the day since setting my Elijah challenge. The significance of the number ‘three-and-a-half’ is threefold. As it relates to Elijah, the drought that he brought upon Israel lasted 3.5 years (Luke 4:25; James 5:17). Some say that Jesus’s ministry lasted 3.5 years; and the Great Tribulation is also said to last 3.5 years (that being the latter half of Daniel’s 70th week according to Daniel 9:27). December 26th also happened to be the eighth and final day of Hanukkah in the Jewish calendar, and on a personal level, it is exactly 12 years to the day since God gave me the inspiration for my new business investing in the share market – which subsequently went on to

Moses, Elijah & The Number 40

Eight days later on November 27, 2020 – the 70th day of the Jewish civil year on Kislev 11, God brought the city of Tel Aviv to mind, so I selected some dates to stay. I was drawn to November 17–19, 2022, exactly 720 days away. It would be exactly 700 days away on December 17, which happened to be the 7th day of the 8-day festival of Hanukkah! Later that day, God prompted me to select a departure date from New Zealand, so I selected November 16 – the day before my arrival in Tel Aviv. Two hours later, I worked out that November 27 was exactly 33 weeks since Good Friday – the day that Christians mark the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Good Friday fell on April 10, 2020 – 7 months and 17 days earlier. That same day in Iran, one of their top nuclear scientists was assassinated, widely believed to be the work of Israel. This came on the 70th day of the Jewish civil year. Then there was a gap of 680 days, or 50 days short of two years, when for the first time, God brought Egypt to mind, preci
