"Beware The Ides of March"


 
Dear John & Doves,

"The Ides of March is the 74th day in the Roman calendar, corresponding to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts. In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar which made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ides_of_March 

"It was the Ides of March that became a real stickler: It presented a deadline on which citizens were expected to settle all of their debts. It became a day of celebration for those who received payment and a day of woe for those who paid." https://history.howstuffworks.com/history-vs-myth/ides-of-march.htm 

" Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken." John 21:11

A simple web search of the 153 fishes will yield a multitude of interpretations. However, the closest interpretation to below was related to the Jewish Calendar. The following interpretation relates to the Roman Calendar.

Interesting Juxtaposition: 153 correlates to the 15th day of the 3rd month - March 15 - The Ides of March - a Day of Celebration & a Day of Woe!

Although the goal was to have all of Israel repent and be water baptised into the Gospel of the Kingdom and then be a blessing to the Gentile Nations, that program had to be put on hold since so many had blasphemed against the Holy Spirit. Even Paul had blasphemed against the Holy Spirit but it was he God chose to be the first saved under the Gospel of Grace, where there is the baptism by the Spirit into the Body of Christ. This was the secret God held till the time came for its implementation.

All the Best,
Mike P
