"To John Tng about his Rapture fleece"
First of all John I want to wish you a late very
happy birthday. You have missed the greatest gift that God has given
you and it is the love and admiration of all those who visit you every
day in this wonderful site that you created and maintained. Love is the
greatest gift a person can receive and you have a lot of it from many
people all over the world.
Your fleece question is a very valid
one to be asked to the Lord. We have been searching the scriptures
diligently for all that He has written concerning the times at hand and
He has revealed a lot of this information to those who are watching.
There is a point that the information if it is required to be time
specific can not be discovered, so it is appropriate to ask Him the
question. In your case you did not specify a way for Him to answer you
so He chose what would work for you specifically that would not work
for any other person. This great answer was tailor made and it fits
only you with your specific knowledge.
What a great God our Jesus Christ is may all the glory, honor and power emanate from His Divinity for all His creation to see.
Your brother in Jesus Christ

"My own RAPTURE fleece"
the last couple of weeks, a few of you had put out a fleece asking the
LORD for confirmation of a 2010 rapture. After reading the latest
fleece by Fay, I can no longer hold back anymore. I, too, had put out a
fleece the day after my birthday. Two weeks ago on my birthday, I
prayed to God to give me a birthday present. At the end of the day I
was very disappointed -- God gave me something I did not expect. I kept
reminding myself that I should not be too attached to the things of
this world especially given the nearness of His coming. Yet, deep down,
I was unhappy, felt like a failure and thought that I deserved better.
cut the long story short, God gave me this number -- 8.23. I have seen
this number before although I have not worked with it. Immediately I
recalled that it is the licence plate number of a car of someone
I know; at the back of my mind for some inexplicable reason I have
always associated it with the scripture "we know that all things work
together for good to them that love God" from the book of Romans. In my
downcast state the scripture comforted me.
When I got home, I
looked up e-Sword and was dumbfounded by what I found -- Rom 8:23 is
another scripture altogether; I have mistaken it for Rom 8:28 -- the
all-things-work-together-for-good scripture. After reading the
scripture on e-Sword, my unhappiness was somewhat lessened by the clear
rapture message contained therein -- "And not only they, but ourselves
also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan
within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of
Then I started thinking, maybe afterall this is truly
the 50th birthday present I was supposed to receive from the LORD -- a
rapture clue, perhaps. The number drew out the numericist in me and my
numerate mind started ticking in search of patterns and clues. I
vaguely recalled that the chapter order of Rom 7 was something I worked
with before. A quick check sent a shiver down my spine as I confirmed
that Rom 8 is chapter 2010 of the 22 Epistles of the Bible -- the third
cycle of the Bible Wheel!
[Note: There are 143 chapters from Rom
1 to Rev 22. If we continue the count after Rev 22 by looping back to
Rom 1, and repeat the counting several times, we will reach 2010
precisely at Rom 8.]
The next day I was still pondering over the
scripture the LORD gave me while I still had not completely gotten over
my disappointment. Taking the cue from Charles Holler (see post) who
shared his fleece that day, I decided to put out my own fleece. On the
way to work that morning, I told the LORD to show me the number again
so that I know for sure it was sent from Him. As the day progressed, I
had forgotten about the fleece. In the afternoon I felt hungry and
decided to get a bite at a nearby deli, which is quite unusual for me.
While queuing for my egg sandwich and coffee, I saw the number 8:23 on
the microwave oven staring back at me! As I was trying to figure out
the meaning of the display, it turned 8:24. It was then that I realized
the digital clock on the microwave oven was not showing accurate time
as it was around three in the afternoon at the time -- the same time I
received 8:23 from God the day before!
Isn't it confirmation
from God that He has sent me the number 8:23 given that the number came
to me around the same time one day after another in close succession in
answering to my two prayers -- one for a birthday present, and the
other for a rapture fleece?
I continued to ponder and waver on
whether I should share it with the doves as I was still a bit doubtful
of the 2010 connection. On the third day, while at work, I had to
attend a meeting scheduled late in the afternoon. I decided to get a
bite first in case the meeting stretched on (meeting of this nature
takes place once in a year). Since I don't have the habit of having
afternoon tea so this hunger pang is highly unusual. The whole thing
was déjà vu all over again -- the deli, egg sandwich, coffee and
3 pm. While waiting for my coffee, I decided to check the digital clock
on the microwave oven to see what time it displayed. Secretly I was
hoping to see 8:23 again, but to my disappointment the clock indicated
one minute past two.
It did not take long before it hit me that
2:01 is the first three digits of 2010! Isn't God trying to tell me
directly that Rom 8:23 will be fulfilled in 2010?
May this be the year of our redemption!
