Brother John Tng,
I have not posted in a long time, but
after reading about your fleece and also Fay's, I was moved to write a
couple of observations.
Dear Brother, the place of despondency
you've been in is being experienced by many of God's children who have
had the blessing of great revelation from our LORD Jesus Christ -who is
also humbling us all, so that we might understand more fully the meaning
of this "Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory,for thy mercy and thy truth's sake. " Psalm 115:1.
I write this to encourage you to review
and hold tight to ALL the Lord has ever given you of his secrets. I
concur with Nando's thoughts that the Lord gave you 'a present' that
was so personally designed "just for you", to reinforce your hope at
this time. I have been severely tested in this area of The Blessed Hope
for an extended period and made to look & feel like a fool, on every
bit of revelation I have shared out there over the past 3 years or so.
Not just the doctrine of the Rapture itself, but everything that relates
to it.. the act of watching, listening, processing data ... everything.
My point is this: it seems to me you have been getting a similar attack
and in the area of God's specific revelation to you.
In my case, I stopped sharing many
things in this area, because of the heart wrenching grief of having it
trampled underfoot or worse. I understand the hesitation to post these
precious encounters again, BUT I commend and thankyou for sharing your
You see, it has restarted the blessing meter for many on this site.
I was blessed to read Clay's response
to your post with the insight into the Wedding at Cana, and tying his
comments with yours, I noticed that the parable ends at 2:10,(2010/
2011) with 2:11 being a summation that , "This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him."
Clay has written in the past about the "FIRST and LAST principle",
a subject that He has also opened up to me some. When I read the above
verse, I was struck by the word 'beginning' in this context, I believe
this principle is in process right now as we look more closely and
diligently for Him.
My own 'encounter with the Lord in 2006
had a number of similarities with what Clay described of his Dec 1997
encounter, including a sharp revelation about the precision and
importance of STRONGS NUMBERS. With all this in mind, I was moved to look up Strongs G823: atomos = an atom of time,or an indivisible unit of time, a moment. And it is used in 1
CORINTHIANS 15:52, " In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the
last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised
incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
Dear Brother, blessed
are you for the Lord Himself is restoring your soul from the place of
the downcast. AND this is for the blessing of us all who fellowship
here!! It is so very personal and intimate , and at the same time a
outflowing blessing of immense proportions!,
All this blessing continued as I was led to reread your article "Has The Penny Finally Dropped",
the reason being that here in Australia, we have Oprah visiting this
week. On a news report a couple of days ago I noticed that they said
that the number of her 'guests' was 302- a number that
you are very familiar with, as for me I needed to do a refresher as I
could only remember that it was the gematria of one of Obama's
names. H1300:Barack=lightening, gematria =302!!!!! from your article,
also the day # of his Oct 29th 2008 infomercial in which he proclaimed
,"And together we will change this country and change the world!"
I would like to add, that apart from the thrill of seeing G823 being
the word for 'moment' in 1 Corinthians 15:52, I also noticed that this
is the verse where God does His 'CHANGE' in us!! As with every other
detail, the Antichrist has a desire to copycat everything Christ does.
Just prior to Oprah leaving for her
Australian visit, she was 'honoured' by Obama on Dec 6th, (18)at the
Kennedy Centre gala. Noting the number of 'guests' she's bringing with
her to Australia suggests that she is 'honouring' Obama too. In the
Sunday December 5th paper here, there was a spread on her, calling her
"High Priestess".The whole country is experiencing massive storms and
flooding this very week; many have drawn conclusions from this.
Brother John, May the Lord continue to bless you for your faithful service to the doves all the way to THE DAY!!
And Blessings overflowing to all the Doves also.
"Praise ye the LORD.I will praise the
LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the
congregation. The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them
that have pleasure therein. His work is honourable and glorious: and his
righteousness endureth forever." PSALM 111:1-3.
Thanks for the encouragement, ML!
There is more to Strong's numbers.
