The Harvest is the End of the Age (Jesus)
With the current focus on 11, including 11 November, some aspects of the numbers 111 and 153 are worth noting. Importantly, the number 111 points to the harvest - the end of the age as Jesus taught. There are signs all around of His imminent coming and dates such as 11 November may be thresholds that send wake-up signals to the world, and to many Christians who are sleeping (not watching). The following is noteworthy:
111 + 42 (number for second coming) = 153 (number for harvest/judgment of nations)
Rosh Hashanah 2011 (29/30 September) to 9 November 2011 (start of three pivotal days?) is around 40 days (time of testing or trial)
234 (Vincent Tan number) - 111 = 123
153 + 123 = 276 (number of souls on Paul’s shipwrecked ship)
234 (Vincent Tan number) + 42 = (also) equals 276
11 November to 1 January = 50 days (Jubilee or Holy Spirit)
For Australians, 1 January 2012 will mark 111 years since Australia became a unified nation (1 January 1901). Australia has been named as the Great Southland of the Holy Spirit, and these 111 dates may be signs of a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit - many prophecies indicate that Australia may play a pivotal role in this outpouring.
For those doves who may be interested in these Biblical numbers, Pastor Riley has a good outline on the www.his-forever.com website (see link below). I have also copied (with some editing) a previous letter I sent to Five Doves relating to the Mystery of 153, acknowledging that the mathematics of many doves are at a much higher level than mine. The number 11 is prominent in this. Maranatha

Insights from John 17
John 21:11 (Amplified) Simon Peter climbed aboard and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn.
I was speaking at our church and had planned to speak on John 17. I had put John Tng’s Revelation of John (on front page of Five Doves) in my brief case as I had not had time to read it, then read it in full. I was meditating on 153 and John’s thoughts, then put two and two together and arrived at John 17. As we know from the great mathematicians on five doves, 153 is the sum of all the whole numbers from 1 to 17. Now if we follow this sequence through the Book of John, we need to ask the question - why stop here? The answer (in part at least) may be remarkably straight forward - John 17 takes us back to one - see the quotes below, with this cry from the heart of Jesus: that they may be ONE, as we are ONE! And the first reference - verse 11! And what verse contains 153 in John 21 - verse 11! In the Amplified, this one occurs five times (see below).
What does all this mean? (I once got 6 per cent in a maths test - logarithms - so I may not be the best to tackle this!) The disciples had toiled through the night, with little to show for it. Then in just a few moments there was a massive haul of fish! This, I believe, speaks of the end-time harvest - God’s last call to the world!! Then Jesus’ real high priestly prayer 2000 years ago is answered as the power of the Holy Spirit burns through the church and prepares a white hot and perfect bride! It also speaks of the Rapture - as Christians from all ages, all ethnic groups, all ages, all shapes - are made gloriously One in the twinkling of an eye - as the Father and the Son are one!! Whether rapture or revival/rapture, we are on the edge of something astonishing that God is about to do. Maranatha! Behold I come quickly!
John 17 (Amplified)
Jesus Prays for Himself
1 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
Jesus Prays for His Disciples
9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be one (1) as we are one (2). 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
Jesus Prays for All Believers
20 "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 That all of them may be one (3), Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one (4) as we are one (5): 23I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
