This is an underplayed version of me shouting at the top of my lungs to all those who have let the wax of deception build up in their ears. Many people wonder why God’s own people did not recognize Him when He came to them as the Christ, even after their own scriptures prophesied about the manner of his return. The reason is because they had closed their hearts and minds, and when their Lord finally came, they did not recognize Him. But, to those who truly knew God and knew His word through scripture, they were able to walk and talk in His midst as witnesses.
While the world dressed up and celebrated the dead on Halloween this last October 31st, life was given to a baby girl who was to be celebrated as the 7 billionth person in the world. Our population finally reached that divine number of completion, a number that marks the end of God’s creation on the Sabbath, and the number of times Joshua was ordered to march around Jericho before it fell. Many biblical scholars well-studied in chronology also believe that the turn of the 21st century was the completion of the 7th millennium. In the book of Revelation, outlining the end of the ages, there are seven last plagues, seven seals, seven angels and seven trumpets. The root word of the Hebrew “seven” (Sheva) means “fullness”, “completion” and “perfection”. 7 is a sacred number of fulfillment in prophecy, and now, here we stand at the start of the greatest wave of adversities the world’s ever known as we reach the complete number of people. That little girl that was born last Monday in Manila, the 7 billionth baby, was named Danica. The name Danica is Slavic/Latin by origin, and it means “morning star”. To any ordinary person, this seems very insignificant, but not to those who remember Jesus’ words in Revelation 22:16, “I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
Do you remember the story of Jonah and the whale? It was about a man who tried to run from God’s call on him for a great mission in the city of Nineveh. He tried to flee by boat, but a storm shook the seas and forced those on board to toss Jonah off to keep God from tormenting them all. When Jonah was cast into the sea, God sent a massive whale to swallow him for 3 days. Once Jonah had come to terms with God, he was at last spewed out of the whale. Last year, in the early May, a gray whale that had been extinct for approximately 300-400 years surfaced in the waters just off the coast of Israel and splashed up a spectacle for sightseers and whale watchers for 3 days, as if it had been resurrected from the dead. “An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah” -Matthew 12:39.
An answer still hasn’t been found for this phenomenon. Nicola Hodgins of the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society said, “This discovery is truly amazing. To find one in the North Atlantic, let alone the Mediterranean Sea, is bizarre in extreme.” God has always perplexed science, which is why science has dedicated itself to theorizing its way around Him. The reason we don’t recognize God’s voice is because we’re always waiting to hear our own preconceived notion of how God is supposed to sound instead of just listening. Sit still and listen to the sounds of the heavens as this year marks records for X-class solar flare ejections, meteor showers and comet activity. Listen to international news broadcasts as God’s promised land is being surrounded for the long-awaited “time of Jacob’s trouble” as described in Jeremiah 30:7 and the book of Psalms. Open your ears and you can hear his voice in the hastening momentum of seismic calamity, flooding, famine and disease. This is the voice of a trumpet being sounded to awaken all those who understand it by the grace and love of Jesus Christ, and plant fear and confusion in the minds of all those who keep their hearts closed like an iron chest.
I encourage you not to take my word for it, but to open your heart and make your own judgment. I’m going to start putting links to all of my sources and news articles in the LINKS page. God bless!
