Hello, John and Doves,
Today is Monday, January 30, 2012, and the
Father of our ADONAI Yeshua Ha Mashiach has seen fit to
grant the children of men yet a few more days to be
baptised by the baptism of repentance and be
saved. Therefore, let us all be about the Father's
business as we occupy until the Bridegroom comes.
Meanwhile, as our heads hit the pillow
tonight, we may contemplate if the LORD has any more
11-11's up His sleeve.
As it turns out, there is another very
important one just around the corner. Let me tell
you how the LORD led me to it. There is a very
interesting verse in Revelation:
"And when he
had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in
heaven about the space of half an hour."
If a day is taken to mean a 360 day year,
as in the reckoning of Daniel's Seventieth week as being a
seven-year shmita count, then a half an hour is seven and
a half days. Counting from twilight, about 6 pm, on
Friday, January 28, 2012 [the beginning of Shabbat]
Yerushalayim Standard Time, YST [about 10 am PST, Friday],
and adding seven and a half days, we come to about 6 am
Saturday morning, February 4, 2012. This day is also
11 Shevat, a Jewish 11/11, if you will.
The Shabbat of that day, having begun a
half day before, at twilight, is Beshalach, meaning "he
shall let go." The parshah [Torah portion reading]
for Beshalach is Exodus 13:17-17:16. According to http://www.aish.com/tp/b/app/48945356.html,
an interpretation of this reading is that the nature
of all existence is to redress imbalances.
In other words, if God gives us leverage
in any area to do a tremendous work, and we fail to
worship and obey Him, then our lives are out of balance
with His generosity. The Hopi have a word for this
sad condition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koyaanisqatsi.
Well, ever since Rosh Hashanah 2008 [the
start of 5769], we have been in training by HaShem for the
actual Rapture. Years before a set of military
manoeuvres actually take place, there is generic training
that must take place. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maneuver_warfare
As the time approaches, more elaborate training takes
place, but in a way that the enemy cannot guess what will
become of it.
Sisters among the Doves, like Suzi, remind
us all that the Devil was no real power of his own.
He derives power from where it rightly resides, the hand
of God. As such, Satan has always been, and will
always be--you guessed it right--a tool. Satan is
always hard at work making his little plans, and
then, in order to give them life, he must tell people what
he intends to do. When one of us gullible lambs
says, "Oh no, it looks as if such and such is gonna happen
again," then there's the Enemy's ready source of
power. We have given life to the
Enemy's plans through our own fear!
Watch what you say! You could be
playing right into the enemy's hands.
Let's examine a real life example.
In 1993, right after the first World Trade Center bombing
[that occurred in the underground garage beneath the North
Tower], some engineer was boasting that a 707, coming in
for a landing at JFK, could not knock down either
tower. Well, I'm sure some conspiracy theorist saw
the hole in that theory. At some point, some
Christian must have said, that a big plane full of
jet fuel [a 747 diverted right after take-off] is a
flying weapon in the wrong hands. And that was
that. HaSatan [the Adversary] was given the
go-ahead, based on a Christian's astute VOCAL
observation. Whether it was vocal or written, the
opinion of that human being enabled the plans of the
enemy. Be careful what you say, think or
write. It may have the exact opposite effect you
As the eleventh day of the eleventh month
of the Jewish religious calendar approaches--11 Shevat, 4
February 2012--it is important to reflect on whether the
words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts
reflect the Holy and Glorious God whom we call Our

Well, that's all for now.
