The Number Three - Part II

Ten days later on January 28 – day 777 since God inspired this trip on December 13, 2020, He brought Auschwitz to mind for a 49th time, and I was led to May 11, 2023 as the date to visit it. As it turned out, May 11 falls exactly 7 weeks to the day since the start of the Jewish religious year on March 23 (Nisan 1 – as mandated in Exodus 12:2). This was the seventh location that God had added to this trip. It was also now the third visit to Auschwitz on the same trip, falling on the third day since the last one. This visit was inspired on the 6th of Shevat in the Hebrew calendar, and as it happens, there was one other visit to Auschwitz that God also inspired on the 6th of Shevat exactly two Hebrew years earlier (January 19, 2021). These two visits were inspired 33 visits apart (The 16th and 49th respectively), and were to occur almost precisely 33 months apart (May 11, 2023 – February 10, 2026). Until this new visit was inspired, the 16th visit that God inspired was actually the 33rd t

The Number Three

On January 11, 2023 – 389 days or the 390th day since God inspired the last destination on this trip, He inspired me to choose a date to stay in Jericho in the West Bank. I was led to May 7–8, 2023, just under four months away. One week later on January 18, God brought Auschwitz to mind for a 48th time, and I was led to May 9, 2023 as the date to visit it – exactly 111 days or precisely 3 months and 3 weeks away! Remarkably, May 9 is Lag Ba’Omer – the 33rd day of the Omer – the 50-day count between the Feast of First Fruits and the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot), or Easter and Pentecost in Christianity. So, God inspired this visit to Auschwitz exactly 3 months and 3 weeks out from the 33rd day of the Omer in Judaism! But, the coincidences (they’re not coincidences) didn’t end there! This visit to Auschwitz occurs precisely three years to the day since my 3rd visit to Auschwitz on May 9, 2020! (Or 3 years and 3 days in the Hebrew calendar). And to top it off, the trip was currently due to las

California Flooding and Atmospheric Rivers

Here is an update to my previous post on December 6, 2022: “As it happened, the State of California, USA, was hit by a series of “atmospheric rivers” beginning on December 26, 2022 – three-and-a-half years since setting my Elijah challenge! Much of the state received significant portions of their annual rainfall within the next few weeks. California had been suffering from a severe drought for the last several years. Many parts of the state suffered flooding from late-December 2022 to mid-January 2023. It is ironic then that these weather events should begin three-and-a-half years since setting my Elijah challenge, which was the length of Elijah’s drought, which also ended with a great rainfall! (1 Kings 18:45)” June 26, 2019 – Dec 26, 2022 = 3.5 years.

Baptism & The Number 777

(2 minute read) "One week later on January 4, just before midnight – day 777 since inspiring my July 14, 2022 visit to Auschwitz – I was about to make another interesting discovery. Some months earlier, I had worked out that there were exactly 500 days between my first and third proposed baptisms that God had inspired – neither of which I was actually baptised on! (February 18, 2021 – July 3, 2022). This seemed somewhat unusual to me at the time, but I couldn’t figure out what it meant, so just put it aside for the meantime. Fast forward to the early hours of January 5, 2023, and I made an interesting discovery! Because the number 777 had been on my mind lately, I wondered what date it would be on day 777 since my first proposed baptism. Actually, my first thought was what date it would be exactly 777 days since my first proposed baptism, but day 777 turned out to be more interesting! It turned out that day 777 since my first proposed baptism on February 18, 2021, was April 5, 202
