"An Apology for January 28th"



 Dear Doves,


An Apology for January 28th


I have spent an entire career making sure all of my calculations were correct, all of my assumptions made sense and the form of communication was precise and conclusive.  If it doesn’t meet these standards, I hold back until I’m satisfied.  This has resulted in a long and successful career, with little stress of wondering when I will get in trouble for some errant figure I may have used.  In other words, my job is to be as factual as possible and to not waste my clients’ valuable time.  As a fellow watcher, YOU are my clients.


As such, I have tried to use this same precision when it has come to being a watchman.  I have never been ALL IN for any date and have always proceeded with the utmost of caution.  However, as Ron expressed so perfectly last week, the stars all aligned beautifully and it seemed January 28th would almost certainly HAVE to be THE date for our long awaited call.  While I disclaimed each of my posts on January 28th being THE date by saying God MAY still push this date off for a time due to His incomprehensible grace, it nevertheless remained a VERY strong statement on my part.


Well, now we know what happened.  January 28th came and went.  And you all therefore deserve an apology from me.


I am now the person that I have NEVER wanted to be.  Many people were relying on my mathematical expertise to display the complex tapestry God is using to bring in His end-time judgment.  I admittedly got overly excited by the beauty of the numbers I saw.  And believe me when I say that numbers are beautiful to me.  They don’t just sit dead on a page.  No, to me, numbers dance and sing and bid me to play with them.  Yes, numbers simply delight me at every turn.  And THESE numbers were particularly beautiful.  They truly enchanted me.


AND THAT is where I went wrong.  I became overly enchanted by the numbers I saw.  While I should have instead continued to look at the big picture, I instead lost focus.


Therefore, I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone who I, IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, by my words or actions, caused grief (or perhaps even some despair) when Saturday, January 28th came and went uneventfully.  As such, I once again apologize to my brothers and sisters in Christ who took it to heart to spread the message we felt needed spreading with such urgency.


While January 28th has now came and went, I strongly believe that I can still speak for all of us when I say, “I can HARDLY wait!  Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus, rescue your Bride from this deteriorating world.  Please tarry no longer”!!




As always, to God be ALL the glory!!!  He is at the door!!  Maranatha!!
