"John Tng :Romans 8:23, John 2:1-11 & Clay's insight; Oprah visits Australia."

 
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 latest 'gift'.
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.
