in Ola's very interesting post found here:
he mentions the 'watches' of the night.
the Rapture seems to have similarities to this account of the Lord Jesus walking on the water in this very famous passage:
"And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea."
I remember clearly from December 1997 that I was very impressed of God that this concept of the 'watches' figured in to the Rapture puzzle, somehow.
in this verse, as Jesus traverses an impossible-for-man-to-walk-on-medium (Water) and in 1 Thessalonian 4:16 it is (Air), when the Lord Descends ...
Air = is Strong's 109 greek with a gematria of 109.
109 is a disaster number that came out of the 9-11 numbers analysis, but it is obvious that it represents many things. Air makes life possible for man on this planet in his present creation state. it also may be taken that in the 9-11 context it is disaster 'from the air'.
this Matthew 14:25 verse has a couple of notable things in it -
it is Bible verse number 23623
I written until everyone on this forum thinks I don't talk about anything else, about Jared the Patriarch and the number 527, his age when Enoch his son is 'taken'.
too late to stop now!
23623 = (527 x 43) + 962 !
962 = Jared's complete lifespan.
the in-text gematria for the word 'watch' (Strong's 5438 g phulake) =
this is Methuselah's age when he dies the year of the Flood, 1656. this is the marker several are watching for, i.e. some equivalent (in our timeline) of the 969 number or SOMEONE who is Methuselah-like in our timeline, who, when he dies, may be the last sign - the Resurrection/Rapture theoretically happening within days of his death.
