This is my first letter to you and let me start to tell how much I appreciate this platform of B's and S's in Christ. I've been reading your insights, visions, personal struggles, questions, prophecies etc since fall last year and truly appreciate it all; may the Lord bless you abundantly, while we look forward to His return.
I've been increasingly focusing on the signs of the times since about 7 years ago and started warning people about a coming financial collapse, to commence with a housing crunch. A lot of great information has been exchanged on this site to put the magnitude and timing of the 2008 financial collapse in perspective of biblical endtimes and the Jewish calendar. The triple seven fall of the DOW on Rosh Hashana and the absolute intraday low of the S&P500 on March 9, 2009 (666) speak volumes about a divine signature related to these events.
On November 25, 26 and 27, while on a business trip in Europe, the Lord drew my attention to Jonah, the Prophet three times in a unique and specific way. It caught me up so much, that I prepared a sermon that I shared in our local Church the following Sunday.
It took a while before I realised that 'Jonah' obviously means 'Dove'; shouldn't we all be active 'Jonah's' in these last of the last days? (I guess that's why John Tng chose the name for this site).
It also occurred to me that 40 days (Jonah's 40-day warning to the population of Nineveh) after the Lord pointed me to Jonah, we were entering the eleventh month of the biblical Jewish calendar - the month of Shebat, on the 5th of January 2011. Great information was shared on this site about the prophecy of Rabbi Kaduri (2005) regarding the return of Messiah and his vision that that would happen after the passing of Sharon, who is still alive since going in a comah in January 2006.
I am convinced that our calendar year 2011 coincides with the warnings, upheaval, chaos, revolution and apostasy related to the number 11 in the Bible and the increase in birth pangs Jesus warns about in the Gospels.
On that 'eleven' note, here is an additional piece of information to put the earthquakes, elevens and ELE(ven)NIN(e) in perspective:
1) First we had the fall of the towers on 9/11/01 (US date formats used here), with all the eleven markers associated with it, including a speech of 'Poppy' Bush 11 years prior to this event on 9/11/1990 about the dawn of the NWO;
2) 911 days and some 18hrs afterwards, we had the 'Madrid train Bombings' in Spain on March 11, 04 while almost 200 people were killed.
3) Exactly 7 years later, the prophesied Great Earthquake in Japan happens;
In view of all other information you shared here, I think there is a very real possibility that we are being warned for an even Greater Earthquake that might happen at the New Madrid Fault.
We know that it's the eleventh hour. HE is coming soon. Zechariah the Prophet receives his great prophesy about a.o. the salvation of Jerusalem and Israel during the eleventh month (Zech 1:7). This month is 'Shebat' which is spelled with three consonants (see Strong's Number 7627) and than pronounced using 2 vowels in between which are not written in Hebrew. Interestingly, if the same consonants are used, but pronounced with different vowels, we get a different meaning, namely 'Sceptre', a word used both in Zech 10:11 as well as in Genesis 49:10 (Strong's number 7626). It is the Lord showing us a beautiful and great hope, as He is in control when the plagues of the endtimes hit earth: the sceptre will indeed leave Egypt as stated in Zechariah 10:11, but:
The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Gen 49:10 (KJV)
Come Lord Jesus.
Welcome to the Doves, John!
