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 God had given me the dates to visit Krakow, I decided to see what date April 3rd was in the Hebrew calendar. Incredibly, it was the 1st of Nisan – the first day of the Jewish religious year! This was the date given to Moses in Exodus 12:2 as the beginning of the year, and is known to Jews as the first commandment.

The last time April 3rd fell on 1 Nisan was in 2003, 46 years earlier, and the next time will be in 2068, 19 years later, so it is a fairly infrequent occurrence.

Nineteen days later on February 20 at 6:16 p.m., I felt quite a strong spirit of love come into me, and I began wondering whether God was about to inspire something, just like He did on February 1.

Sure enough, 35 minutes later at what appeared to be the very start of 6:51 p.m., God brought the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem to mind, and I was led to May 18–22, 2049 as the dates to stay. This was the 52nd overall trip to Jerusalem and Israel that God had inspired in this series of trips.

This visit to Jerusalem appeared to link up with the visit to Krakow, Poland, as I was due to leave Jerusalem exactly 7 weeks (49 days) to the day since arriving in Krakow on April 3rd – the potential date of Jesus’s crucifixion. Both April 3rd and May 22nd were a Saturday – the Sabbath Day – and as such, each had a corresponding weekly Torah portion associated with it.

On Saturday, April 3rd, it was Parashat Tazria (Leviticus 12:1–13:59) – the 27th weekly Torah portion of the year. This portion begins with the purification process for a Jewish woman after she gives birth to a male child. Following 7 days of being ritually impure, she undergoes a further 33 days of purification (Leviticus 12:4).

Seven weeks later on Saturday, May 22nd, it is Parashat Bechukotai – the 33rd weekly Torah potion of the year, and the final one in the book of Leviticus (Leviticus 26:3–27:34). Note that this only applies in Israel, where I would be, because in the diaspora it is Parashat Behar – the 32nd weekly Torah portion – one week behind Israel due to observing two days at the end of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (21–22 Nisan).

It is interesting then that both weekly Torah portions were in some way connected to the number 33 – starting on April 3rd – the potential date of Jesus’s crucifixion at about age 33, possibly in the year 33 A.D.! But the connection to the number 3 and 33 didn’t end there.

This visit to Jerusalem was inspired on the 3rd day of the week (a Tuesday), and would arrive exactly 1,317 weeks later, also on a Tuesday. It was inspired precisely 1 hour and 33 minutes before sunset at 8:24 p.m. in Nelson, New Zealand (timeanddate.com), and my third day in Jerusalem would fall on Lag Ba’Omer – the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer! (May 20, 2049 / 18 Iyyar, 5809).

In addition, Easter Sunday falls on the 16th of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar in 2049 – the very day that many people believe Jesus was resurrected on following His crucifixion on Friday the 14th of Nisan (Passover). The 16th of Nisan is the Feast of First Fruits in Judaism, meaning that both the Christian and Jewish starting dates for the counting of the Omer is the same – Sunday, April 18, 2049 (Easter Sunday). Therefore, the 33rd day of the Omer is the same in both Judaism and Christianity – May 20, 2049. The last time that happened prior to this was in the year 2042, and after that again in 2056, seven years later.

These don’t appear to be coincidences, but rather designed that way to prove that God was behind it.

As a result of this new trip to Israel, I made another interesting discovery. February 19, 2024, the day before this visit was inspired, fell exactly 333 days since the start of the Jewish religious year on 1 Nisan, 5783 (March 23, 2023). This new trip was due to begin exactly 26 Hebrew years after that on 1 Nisan, 5809.

February 19, 2024 happened to be an interesting day for Israel, as it was the start of a seven-day hearing at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the world’s top court at the United Nations, to determine whether Israel’s 56-plus year rule over the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip – which they took control over in 1967 – is illegal. The court has been asked to provide a non-binding advisory opinion, requested by the U.N. General Assembly in December 2022.

It is interesting then that the very body that voted to partition Palestine into two states with 33 votes on the 333rd day of the year, is now reviewing Israel’s control over these areas, starting exactly 333 days since the start of the Jewish religious year on March 23, 2023!
An unprecedented 52 states were due to present arguments during the case, ending on February 26th.

Getting back to the new trip I was discussing, my arrival and departure dates in Jerusalem also held a lot of significance in Jewish history.

According to Chabad.org, May 18, 2049 (16 Iyyar, 5809), is the very day in the Hebrew calendar that Titus and the Roman Army razed the middle wall of Jerusalem, ultimately leading to the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple in 70 A.D. It is interesting then that God used a mental image of the walls of Jerusalem in order to inspire this trip to Jerusalem!

Additionally, the 16th of Iyyar is the very day that the Manna began to fall from heaven, feeding the Israelites throughout their 40-year journey in the wilderness!
Thus, both these events held great significance for Israel.

Likewise, my departure date from Jerusalem was also significant.

May 22, 2049 (20 Iyyar, 5809), is the very day in the Hebrew calendar when the cloud lifted from the Tabernacle in the wilderness, signalling that the Israelites should move on from their encampment near Mt. Sinai in the desert (Numbers 10:11–12). The Tabernacle was a portable sanctuary for God to dwell in during the Israelites 40-year journey from Egypt to Israel, and the cloud would lead them by day as to where they should go, and a pillar of fire by night.
Thus, this was also an important date in Israel’s history.

So what you have here is quite an interesting pattern. You have the beginning of the trip starting with the potential crucifixion date of Jesus, and the second or last part of the trip starting with the razing of the middle wall of Jerusalem, ultimately leading to the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple. This very trip was inspired with God bringing to mind an image of Jerusalem’s Old City walls. For Christians, this should remind them of the prophecy which Jesus spoke over Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives:

“For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.” – Luke 19:43–44

What Jesus was essentially saying was that Jerusalem would be destroyed, because they didn’t recognise Him as the Messiah. Many did, but ultimately those that did not had the power to send Him to His death.
