Countdown to Valentine's - What Did God Put In 2/14?

Minister Ty Alexander

Many believers shun Valentine's Day because it has turned into a commercialized celebration of romantic love. The holiday is also thought to come from another attempt of the church to move people away from a pagan holiday and replace it. This was done with Christmas (see Christmas in God's Holidays for more), which replaced ancient Winter Solstice festivals.

There is an ancient pagan holiday that goes with romance and is about the same time as Valentine's Day, but we will see in this countdown that Valentine's Day is different than Christmas and that God truly did hide things in it to go with love. After all, God has reminded me through decades in ministry that there is a time to embrace, to search, and to love (Ecclesiastes/Kohelet 3:5-8).

Still, Valentine's Day is not a sacred holiday that believers need to observe, so I do not make any special holiday plans for it as I do for God's important holidays, but I do recognize its meaning in what God wants us to focus on - love for others in general, instead of mostly for romantic love. After I became a Christian, though, I grew to hate Valentine’s Day, because God had guided me about how the church and people in general are over-focused on, even addicted to, worldly, romantic love instead of healthy and realistic love. False teaching from excessive love doctrine is rampant and very harmful in the church. It prevents people from seeing God as He truly is, keeps them from maturing in spiritual matters, and makes people fall to sin.

I also thought Valentine’s Day, a holiday originally instated to commemorate a saint, was corrupted like Christmas was. They were originally Christian holidays that were overtaken by commercialism and corrupted, worldly values that erased God and Christ. But if you keep up with things here, you know the Lord has given me some huge reminders about my days as a young, romantic artist, of Ireland, and to not neglect my past in creative things (see this Update for more). And long after that guidance, the nudges kept coming, so I made a countdown to Valentine’s Day to share God's guidance in it.

Today would be 5 days until February 14th, and what’s interesting about it is, I was guided that the number five means faith. It was linked to 1 Corinthians 13:13 in the Bible, But now faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. I was told the number five went with faith and given other numbers that went with hope and love, but I’ll get to the other numbers in coming days.

Five, though, being Faith is the certainty of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). It’s a state of holding on to the invisible; securely clutching hopes and dreams. If you have no faith, then you are one who more values what is solid and right before your eyes. Where is love for such a person? Where are their hopes and dreams?

You can certainly dream, hope, and love if your faith is dead, but it’s like a primary color gone from you; you simply cannot experience certain things without it, like in art, there is no yellow or turquoise if there is no green. For me, before seeing God and Christ in my life, I existed merely by chance, hardly any different than any other animal. Meaning and purpose outside of my own notions and drives were absent, and my hopes and dreams were limited to my understanding of the world. Like most other people, I only hoped for and pursued what I knew to exist. That's pragmatic and logical, but it's missing very important parts of existence. It’s like sunshine gold and sky blue did not exist.

I had no emerald green either, which is the gem and color associated with true, pure faith, and strangely, or maybe not so coincidentally, considering how God has moved me so purposefully towards the Emerald Isle (Ireland), that my new life in faith as a Christian began with links to Ireland. For example, the Christian who helped me become a believer was Irish and born on St. Patrick’s Day (see Predestined for details).

With new Faith, all of a sudden I saw green, but not just flat green, it was a shining, translucent emerald. And with it, I could truly see that sunshine gold and azure blue as they were meant to be seen. My existence expanded from a small, drab room to fill the whole sky and heavens! That is what the birth of faith felt like to me. I hope in this Valentine Countdown the invisible will become solid for the faithless or diminished in faith of you out there. When you have God, there's much more to love and destiny than biology and dictionary serendipity or fortuitous luck. You will be able to see and experience things never before seen or even imagined (1 Corinthians 2:9; Isaiah 64:4/Yeshayahu 64:3).

God bless you all in Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus). Amen.

4 Days To 2/14 2/10/2024
It’s 4 days until Valentine’s, and the number 4 has special meaning like 5 does. God had me link it to Hope in 1 Corinthians 13:13, But now faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. After that link was made, the Lord further reinforced the meaning of 4 and Hope by sending me numerous examples of it connected to the number 413, which went with the New Testament verse, I can do all things through [Christ] who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).

As well as 4, that verse number has 13 in it, which represents God’s promised blessing in which only He can fulfil. Coupled with 4, meaning Hope, the words of Philippians 4:13 literally coincide with the meaning in the numbers – God gives us the promise of hope (4) and blessing of strength (13) to overcome whatever obstacles are in the way; Hope (4) & God's Promise in which only He can give (13) = 4:13, to help us do whatever we need to in Christ = Philippians 4:13.

Last time I noted how emeralds went with Faith, and like that, I found Hope also has a gemstone and colors associated with it. Amazonite, a blue-green stone, has traditionally been associated with Hope. Its light blue-green has been associated with the transition from cold winter (white and light blue) and warm, life-giving spring (green), so the color represents that hope of renewed life after winter.

Of course, culture and tradition also determine what kind of meaning we associate with color, so there are other colors associated with Hope. Sunshine yellow or gold is another symbol of Hope, as well as green, but since I used green last time, I wanted to focus on other colors here. Sunshine gold was a color God guided me with to represent prosperity and a new beginning, but it’s not hard to see why sunlight gives hope; it brings life, helps it flourish, and sends away the darkness of night.

There are also other gemstones associated with hope, like opal, but I want to save it for later. May hope in God’s promises of new life and strength come to you. God bless you all in Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

3 Days to 2/14 2/11/2024
3 days to Valentine’s, and from my last posts you might think I’d go to a discussion of Love from my use of 1 Corinthians 13:13, Faith, Hope, and Love remain… However, the number three doesn’t mean Love. It goes with Christ and the fulfillment of the Holy Trinity in God - the Father, Christ (the Son), and the Holy Spirit. The number three has many links to Christ in the Bible, for example He started His ministry at 30 years of age (Luke 3:23), died after 3 years of ministry at the age of 33, and was resurrected 3 days afterwards. These links to three were one way the Lord set my focus towards Christ before I believed, since one of my favorite numbers was 3.

The number 3 also represents a completion of the Trinity, since it was not complete before Christ was crucified, resurrected, and ascended. That’s because the Holy Spirit did not come to completion to believers until Christ left again after His resurrection (John 7:39, 16:7). Christ told His disciples before He went back to heaven, It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Helper [Holy Spirit] will not come to you, but if I go, I will send him to you (John 16:7).

The significance of Christ with Valentine’s Day was largely lost because of traditions and commercialism that refocused this saint’s day as simply a holiday for loved ones and especially romantic love. This is the same kind of refocusing the world has done with Easter and Christmas, and was one reason I shunned Valentine’s Day, as I said in my first post.

I thought God was guiding to leave behind this holiday, like many other religious holidays, because it was not truly one ordained by God, such as those explicitly stated in the Bible. I treat these holidays, including Valentine's Day, as commemorations and not holy holidays. So for Valentine’s Day I simply remember the saint’s work as God’s servant who helped people get married against an order by the Roman emperor Claudius II[1.1]. That Saint Valentine was martyred on February 14th, 270 AD.

There are however, many saints in history that had the name Valentine, as it was a common name (Valentinus meaning "strong, worthy, powerful") in ancient times[1.1], and some old church documents even record three different ministers with the name Valentine dying on or associated with February 14th[1.2]. All of these different correlations with February 14, Valentine’s Day, and God’s guidance to me with the number 214 told me He still worked in those martyred ministers, despite their involvement in bad doctrine and a denomination of the church I cannot endorse.

A lot of people have left the Catholic church for similar reasons, but the problems in that Catholic Church are hardly different than in any other sect of believers. God still works in them. It’s only that His work is limited and influenced by their beliefs and what they follow. I’m not writing here to talk about those issues, though (see Ministry Warnings for more about other sects).

I wanted to bring Christ back into Valentine’s Day, so like the other posts, I want to note colors and precious materials that are associated with Christ. The Apostle John saw Christ in angelic form and described Him in the Book of Revelation, saying, I saw one [standing behind me], like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and a golden sash wrapped around His chest. His head and hair were white like white wool, like snow, and His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like burnished bronze when it has been heated to a glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength (Revelation 1:13-16), and again, John described God on His throne in heaven, He who was sitting [on the throne] was like a jasper stone and a sardius in appearance (Revelation 4:3). God and angels are described to look like gemstones in the Bible (Daniel 10:5-6; Revelation 4:3), which refer to their polished and refined nature.

In the descriptions of Christ, you can see:
  • Gold, in which pure gold symbolizes Godly refinement.
  • White symbolizes purity and wisdom, especially in white hair and white garments (Daniel 7:9; Matthew 17:2, 28:3; Mark 9:3, 16:5; Luke 9:29; John 20:12; Acts 1:10; Revelation 1:14, 2:17, 3:4-5, 3:18, 4:4, 6:11, 7:9, 7:13-14, 19:11, 19:14, 20:11).
  • Jasper is a gemstone found in different colors, but in the Bible, I feel spiritually, it refers to a polished, green translucent jasper. Traditionally, jasper is said to bring calm and peace[1.3].
  • Sardius, which is called carnelian today, is an orange-red gemstone often associated with courage, endurance, energy, leadership, and motivation.
  • Glowing hot, fine or polished bronze – High quality bronze is a material that is not only costly, but also very hard and resists corrosion and rusting in its sturdiest alloys, as good or better than stainless steel and titanium. Christ’s feet being made of this material symbolizes being able to go anywhere without harm, while also being dangerous to those who would oppose Him, since His feet are glowing hot and bronze also symbolizes warfare, arms, and armor.
  • Radiant, golden sunshine - I mentioned in previous posts, represents life, prosperity, and new beginnings. People who are shown in the Bible as glowing radiantly, like Christ and Moses (Mark 9:2-3; Exodus/Shemot 34:29-35), have a heavenly aura or energy and shine just like a bright light, such as the sun.
  • Garnet and Ruby are also associated with Christ, referring to His blood shed on the cross. I will talk more about these gems later.
God bless you all in Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

2 Days to 2/14 2/12/2024
Two days to Valentine’s and now we come to Love, from which I had connected to the verse, But now faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13). In the first two posts, I said 5 equaled Faith and 4 was Hope, but the last post was about 3 equating to Christ. Why does the number sequence skip over 3 when I keep referring to Faith, Hope, and Love in 1 Corinthians 13:13?

That’s a longer story, which I will share tomorrow. For today, I will just say God gave me the number sequence 5, 4, 2 and had me connect it to 1 Corinthians 13:13. Obviously, by simple elimination, the number two goes with Love in that verse, which is the ancient Greek word “agape” (ἀγάπη) in Apostle Paul’s original words.

Agape love might be a common notion to you, as the church often talks about it, and before believing, I remember it from academic studies. Agape is the most common word used for love in the New Testament, but unlike English and many other languages, it does not include romantic love.

The definition of agape is of a more universal love for others. It is numbered #26 in Strong’s Concordance, which is a widely used reference for words in the Bible, and agape’s definition includes brotherly love, general affection/fondness, goodwill, benevolence (desire to do good), and charity. Romantic love isn’t contained in agape, and in fact, the Greek word for romantic or passionate love, “eros”  (ἔρως), is not used anywhere in the New Testament.

Am I going to jeer romance on Valentine’s Day now? Sorry, Valentine’s Day haters, that’s not the plan. The Saint Valentine who was martyred on 269 or 270 AD, possibly for helping couples get married[1.1, 2.1], and most likely for helping Christians and not renouncing Christ[2.1], has romantic love associated with his death. He likely also tried honoring the God-given right for a man and woman to wed despite a king’s order to prevent it.

There is a proper time for everything (Ecclesiastes/Kohelet 3:1-8) and God has given me much reminders of romantic things, even through teaching me that too much focus on worldly notions of love is very unhealthy, so I’m not going deride Valentine’s Day. The plan is to show a bigger picture of what Valentine’s Day and the number 214 or 2/14 means, and that must include knowing what kind of love God actually means in the New Testament, as well as with love or grace in Christ – it is a universal, charitable love for everyone, and a manifestation of God’s omnibenevolence – His desire to bring good to all; that is agape love.

That omnibenevolent agape love can manifest as an aid for romantic eros love, like it did in Saint Valentine when he helped couples, but we need to keep things balanced and in correct focus. Romantic, passionate, and the wrong kinds of love have overtaken much of the meaning of the word “love” in our times.

Because Valentine’s Day was taken over by romantic love and its commercialization, we often forget what God really means for the holiday, as is often also done for Christmas and Easter. Other saints named Valentine died on Valentine’s Day as well[1.2]. These alignments are not mere coincidence, so God is trying to have us pay more attention and give further meaning to it.

We’ll work up to that in the last days to Valentine’s. For now, remember the holiday as one honoring a Christian minister, or actually ministers, who died helping others and were martyred for keeping faith and loyalty to Christ. So remember agape, good will love for everyone on Valentine’s Day.

Like previous days, I will also talk about the gems and colors associated with love. Pink rose quartz is traditionally associated with love, but topaz and emerald have also been associated with love[2.2]. However, I had opal in mind when I talked about holding off on talking about a stone that represents hope on the 4th day from Valentine's.

Opal has been associated with hope and love since Roman times[2.2], and has been a favorite of mine. Opals are also called the Queen of Gemstones because they can shine every color in one gem.

Colors for love, like other feelings, vary by culture, but most common are red, green, yellow, and blue.

To end this post, I will share another amazing “manifestation” of love and God that I came across. I brought up the Strong’s Concordance number for “agape” above, because I saw its number, 26, has the same value as God’s holy name in Hebrew, which first appears in Genesis 2:4, יהוה. I spell God’s holy name in English as Yahovah and pronounce it “Yah-hoh-vah.”

The Hebrew for Yahovah adds up to 26, which is also called its standard gematria value. It’s much like English gematria where ‘A’ = 1, ‘B’ = 2, ‘C’ = 3, etc., except the value for Yahovah uses the Hebrew alphabet.

What’s so amazing about agape love being numbered 26 and God’s name equaling the same? The Apostle John states God is love twice in 1 John 4 (1 John 4:8, 4:16), and of course, he used the word “agape” when he said that, and he did it two times in the original manuscripts (chapter titles were added later by the church, so do not count), and you now know the number two means Love.

And of great significance here is Strong’s Concordance Reference only lists words from the Bible's original language manuscripts in Hebrew and Greek, and they are numbered alphabetically by language, so “agape” working out to be the 26th Greek entry to match the gematria value of God’s Hebrew name shows God’s extraordinary work in orchestrating Hebrew and Greek, as well as all the original words used in the New Testament. "God is love" goes with Yahovah God = 26 = Strong's number for agape love, and that equality would NOT happen if the Hebrew alphabet and numbers assigned to the letters were different, nor would it happen if another Greek word alphabetically before agape was used in the New Testament.

God’s wonders never cease! But that numeric linguistic link to love and God is not all I found. When I was looking for royalty free photos to use for this post, I found one with what look like Scrabble game tiles spelling LOVE. I used it in the image below, but when I looked closer, I saw the numbers for the first three letters were 214.

Amazing, I thought, since I'm talking about things related to 214 or 2/14. I had to double-check if they were indeed Scrabble tiles, so I went to my game in the closet and found my L's were valued with 1 instead of 2. Did the person who posted the photo change the value for L?

That seemed unlikely, so I did a search and found editions of Scrabble in other languages do use a value of 2 for 'L'. God prepared everything for me to post with this thread, on time and in sync, like I've experienced so many times before - the Lord truly does display wonders on the earth! (Joel/Yoel 2:30; Acts 2:19). Praise the Lord for that!

God bless you all in Mashiach Yeshua and remember His great love for you and desire to bring the good to all, especially through Christ the Messiah. Amen.

1 Day To 2/14 2/13/2024
One day to Valentine’s and we have already covered the three virtues found in 1 Corinthians 13:13 - Faith, Hope, and Love. What more is there to talk about? One thing is, the number one has had meaning in the Lord’s guidance to me over the years. I found it refers to God, the Father, the Beginning and Source, truly the Alpha, which might seem obvious since 1 is the first whole, positive number. And to further solidify this, God refers to Himself as "one," saying, "Hear, Israel, Yahovah is our God, Yahovah is one!" (Deuteronomy/Devarim 6:4).

That is affirmed by Christ the Messiah when a Jewish scribe asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost?" (Mark 12:28) and Yeshua answered him by quoting Deuteronomy/Devarim 6, "The foremost is, ‘Hear, Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one, and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength" (Mark 12:29-30). The only differences with the quote was that Christ added, "Love God with all your mind," and replaced God's actual name with "the Lord," (Kurios in Greek or Adonai in Hebrew) which was already common practice for many centuries by the time of Christ (see God's Names for more).

Furthermore, Christ affirmed equality with God the Father when Jews in Jerusalem surrounded Him during Hanukkah, the Feast of the Dedication (John 10:22), trying to figure out who He was. They asked, "How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Messiah [Christ], tell us plainly" (John 10:24). Yeshua responded by saying He already told them; His works or miracles in the name of God testified for Him, but because they did not believe in Him, they did not belong to Him. However, His sheep, His followers, would have eternal life through Him, and He ended His statements with, "I and the Father are one" (John 10:25-30).

Of course, the Jews recognized His use of one and picked up stones to stone Him to death. Yeshua asked, "I showed you many good works in the Father. For which of them are you stoning Me?" They answered, "We are not stoning You for a good work, but for blasphemy! And because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God!" (John 10:31-33)

So God and Christ are One, however, God didn’t give me the number one alone at first. It came in the form of 111 and then was paired with 213, many times in 2009 during my first year as a minister. Those numbers kept popping up as I went about my days, and I started wondering what they meant. I didn’t know it at the time, but this use of numbers to guide me would be a big part of how God spoke to me as I continued in ministry. If you visited The Meaning of Numbers page, you will have noticed the amount of information God gave me with numbers is significant in both quantity and relevance. It shows some of the most “physical” evidence of God in the world through His orchestration of languages and numbers to align with scripture and spiritual guidance.

Since God gave me 111 and 213 a lot, you might have noticed the numbers for today match 213 – February 13th or 2/13, and last time, I started to bring up these numeric correlations when I talked about Valentine’s Day, 2/14, linking with 214. I first got the link with 111 and 213 on 11/1/2009 when I was led to the beginning of Jeremiah/Yirmiyahu in my Bible and noticed the pages began on verses 1:11 and 2:13, exactly (image below).

I think that was the first time I noticed God giving me more physical workings with things in the real world, those wonders on the earth (Joel 2:30/Yoel 3:3; Acts 2:19) that I often talk about. They're prepared in just the right way to link up with spiritual guidance. Not every Bible is printed so that Jeremiah 1:11 and 2:13 define a page spread. This Bible is a large NIV Study Bible and the very first one I bought to study from, so obviously, the Lord blessed me in choosing the right one, and then many months later, had me study this page spread on November 1st. Did you notice 111 again? November 1st is 11/1. Truly, God moves in mysterious ways.

What does the pairing of 111 and 213 mean? That took much more time and guidance from the Lord to understand. I won’t go into all the details here, but the beginning of Jeremiah went with my role to teach and speak for God (see Predestined for more). And I’ll just say the numbers define a date range – the age we’re in now, the Christian Gospel Age, because 111 represents how the Holy Trinity became complete after Christ ascended and gave the Holy Spirit in power at Pentecost (see 111 in The Meaning of Numbers for more). Many Christians believe that is when the church was born, though I disagree. The church was actually born when the first people believed in Yeshua as the Messiah Savior. His first disciples were that foundation.

111 represents God’s presence in the church becoming complete when God sent the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4), so if 111 is the beginning of the Christian Gospel Age, 213 must mean its end. And indeed, God has given me much to show that 213 represents the end of this age and that we are living it now. It represents the point up until Christ returns. If you want scripture links to it, see 213 here.

Last time, I said I’d share the details for the 5, 4, 2 sequence I’ve been talking about in this thread. I waited for 2/13 to talk about it because of its link to 213, so let’s see where it goes.

It was near the end of April in 2010 when I got separate visions of the numbers 5, 4, and 2, in that order. The first was the number five in the style of the logo for a local news station, KSTP News Channel 5. I linked it three days later, when I went to church service and they shared an interview done by KSTP News. It was about a man and his family who was a construction manager for the new (at the time) Twins baseball stadium in Minneapolis. After the project was completed, the family decided to sell all their possessions and move to Swaziland in Africa to start a missionary for orphans.

They did that because the man’s wife was guided by God to tell him, "God says, 'I have given you your dream, helped you build your dream. Now come with me and build mine.'"

His childhood dream was to build a stadium for the Twins baseball team. Now that his wish came true, he wanted to honor God's grace by committing his life to fulfilling God's wishes. It was a moving story, full of faith, accomplishment, and the power that God can have in people's lives to take on impossible and seemingly "crazy" goals.

It gave me strength to keep going in my missions for Christ, and now I knew what the Channel 5 vision linked to, but I thought, "What does this have to do with the four and the two? I'm not going to end up living in Africa once God gives me my dreams, am I? What are my dreams even?"

A few days later, I left for a motorcycle road trip to the hill country around Leakey, Texas. I was going down to meet friends and ride the beautiful roads in that area. Early into my ride down, I noticed a road sign that resembled the vision of the number four I had (photo below).

It was a sign pointing to a County Road 4, to an exit for a town called Hope. As I passed it, I thought, "Wow, is that really related to the 5, 4, 2 visions? Hope?... am I on the road to hope? On the road for hope? What about the number two? What does it all mean together?"

I continued on my way south the rest of the day and, though, the interstate made for a boring ride, the meaning of "5, 4, 2" in the back of my mind kept me occupied. I felt that something interesting was unfolding. God certainly knows how to make life interesting no matter what we're doing or where we are.

In the evening I stopped for the night in Perry, Oklahoma with less than 600 miles left to meet my friends in Texas. I was lying in bed when I noticed on television someone talking about Revelation and the Last Days. At the end of the program he said, "Proclaim your faith to someone... by the mouth. It's important."

That was interesting, because at the time, God was also guiding me about how salvation in Christ really worked. Then without thinking, I took the cross pendant around my neck and held it in hand, as I sometimes did. It was like a comfort blanket for me, giving me something tangible to feel for God's presence. I asked the Lord, "Do I have things right?" and at that moment, I lifted the pendant a little higher and noticed it came completely free of the chain without any resistance.

"Great, my chain broke," I thought. And I had just replaced it with a very sturdy, stainless-steel chain and clasp, because the silver one had problems breaking. I felt around my neck for the chain and it was still there. I examined the pendant and the chain and saw that nothing was broken at all. The chain clasp was still securing the chain around my neck, and the ring on top of the pendant had no gap for the chain to slip through. The pendant was complete and unblemished as well. There was no physical way the chain could have "broken" like that.

I realized this did not happen naturally, so I asked the Lord, "What are you trying to tell me?" Well, it took quite a few years for God to tell me what I and the church had wrong with salvation. Here, I will just say proclaiming and keeping public loyalty to Christ is very important. The details require more theological discussion I won’t get into here (see The True Gospel and Imposters for more).

But later, I saw that God took the cross pendant off the chain to show that our knowledge about the New Covenant was incorrect and incomplete. Now, I no longer wear a cross and chain every day. I felt as I matured in Christ, it was not necessary to always show my faith everywhere. However, there is nothing wrong with wearing a cross to show your faith, so don’t let this experience make you put away your crosses. Just don't treat them as God or use them as talismans, like some people do with good luck charms and patron saint medallions for protection. These practices move people into idolatry or unfaithfulness to God, as well as have them focus on the wrong things.

The next day, I continued with my trip and enjoyed a few days of riding and meeting with friends in Texas. After the motorcycle rally, I went to San Antonio to see a Celtic Woman concert and meet an artist friend. Initially, I wasn’t intending to go to San Antonio, since I didn’t have money to spare, but I felt spiritually I needed to go and was given nudges with the Celtic Woman concert arriving there just after the rally. San Antonio was only a couple hours from the rally, so I made plans to go.

In San Antonio, as well as in Leakey, I ended up giving my first book, titled 3rd Compass, to people I met. It was one of the first works of God in me to evangelize, since that book was a testimony and analysis for nonbelievers and the scientifically-minded to see God’s design in the universe. My trip to San Antonio ended up being very important for my friend who met me there.

He lived in Houston and came up with his wife to meet me in person for the first time. We were old airbrush friends who met online when I was an automotive custom painter some years before. In our meeting, I gave him my book, which eventually helped him believe in Christ. His wife was already a Christian and had tried getting him to believe for years, but sometimes people need more than another person’s faith.

Thank the Lord for His work in me, because my friend died unexpectedly in 2019. It took a few years after I gave him the book for him to become a believer, but God gave him enough to be saved before it was too late. Sometimes it takes a while for God to work and we may feel insignificant and of little means to help, but often, our small contributions add up to big benefits.

I left San Antonio soon after the Celtic Woman concert and got home the morning of May 4th. I was catching up on my email when I saw a message from a ministry that said the gift of real prophets has ceased since the first century church and pointed to 1 Corinthians 13:8, "Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."

As I continued reading the rest of 1 Corinthians 13, I noted there was actually nothing saying that prophets or prophecies are no more in this age. The ministry was taking scripture out of context, though, I would agree that "real prophets" like in the Old Testament no longer exist. Prophets still exist today because God continues to give spiritual gifts that include prophecy, and anoints people as prophets, just as Apostle Paul said, Christ will give apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, so the church may build up until we all reach unity in the faith and the knowledge of Christ (Ephesians 4:11).

However, “real prophets” still existing today was not the most important revelation I got from 1 Corinthians 13, because as I finished reading the last verse, "And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love...," it struck me. The road sign to Hope and the vision of the number four pointed to hope in this verse because the five that came before it points to faith. Why? Because the family interviewed on Channel 5 showed extraordinary faith by giving up everything to start a missionary in Africa.

By logical elimination, this meant the two coming after the five and four pointed to love, but why the number two? Then it hit me again, and I remembered guidance with the number 213; Two, thirteen... two thirteens...

I exclaimed to myself, "HA! Oh my gosh! That's the verse number here, 1 Corinthians 13:13! Two thirteens!" And thirteen means great promise and blessing that only God can give, linked to a 213 Promise I was guided towards with the number 213. I knew that went with the end of this age, but God gave me even more meaning to it.

The revelation of 2 meaning Love told me God’s 213 Promise wasn't just a promise of Christ's return or rebirth for us. It was also a promise of love in His return and in the days just before His return, because the very end of this age contains a lot of hardship, trial, and tribulation. This has already begun, as anyone who keeps up with world news should be able to see.

Only God will be able to provide this promise of love in 213, though. It includes protection in these times, but because it is linked to Christ and His grace, that 213 promise is only given to believers, but not just Christians. God has told me this promise of love before His return is for Christians of sufficient righteousness.

Now, some have given me much disdain for saying that, because much of the church thinks the Rapture will save them from the worse that is coming. However, there is much false teaching going around and there are God’s mysteries that go with all this. He hid and confused much in scripture so that the truth would NOT be so easily attained (see the first section on Myths in Light Within for more). But obviously, the Lord made me a teacher to reveal many mysteries, so keep your peace and patience, but note that the Lord has guided me that the Rapture is not how we will be kept safe in the Tribulation (see God's Alarm for more).

This has been a long post, but I still have some things to share about 213. Did you notice the numeric syncing of when I got the final revelation of the 5, 4, 2 sequence? It was on May 4th or 5/4, the first two numbers in the sequence, and it was when I found that 2 linked to love, the last number in the sequence.

Now let’s go backwards to 2009. I had kept seeing 213 pop up during the year, and then on December 10th, I got an email from a ticket vendor for a coming concert tour of the Celtic Woman Irish music group. This was the first time I heard of them. When I went to their website, I was dumbstruck to see when the mouse pointer hovered over the photos, it sprouted a leaf graphic that I used in designing my ministry business cards a month earlier.

It was the exact same graphic that I used from an old clip-art library I had for over a decade. A very strange coincidence, I thought, as I took out a business card (below) and compared the graphic to the one on their website (at the time). It was the very same almond shaped leaves interspersed on swooping, curly vines.

I felt I should buy concert tickets, so after I bought two, I got another surprise. The total for two tickets, taxes, fees, and an additional charity donation I decided to tack on at the last minute, came out to be $213.33. "Two-thirteen?!" I exclaimed. I didn't know the full meaning of the numbers at the time, but I did know they had to do with end time events.

I was going to just buy the Celtic Woman tickets and go about my business, but the 213 link got me to look again. I decided to go to the store and use a coupon I was saving to get one of their CDs. The only one I found was their Christmas album, so I took it to the check-out counter and gave the clerk my coupon. The final total came to be $2.13.

"What?!" I thought, "Two-thirteen again. How can this be? What in the world are you telling me, Lord?"

I knew as a logical and scientifically inclined person, the chances of all these spiritual and real-world elements aligning like this was minuscule, nearly impossible, especially two final bill amounts with coupon and other last-minute additions coming out to be two-thirteen. So with these very strong nudges, I listened to Celtic Woman's music intently and found much of it spiritually moving. Their beautiful voices are angelic and inspiring, but I didn't get much else out of it all. However, God wasn't done with my experiences with them or Irish culture and language.

On the next Sunday, December 13th, 2009, I went to church service and found they changed the background decorations on the stage to use white hanging fabrics that reminded me of the five members of Celtic Woman at the time. I was also amazed to see the fabrics were laid out at different heights that matched the various heights of the Celtic Woman performers. The reference to them and the rest of my guidance was eerily accurate, so I paid extra attention to the sermon for anything that popped out.

The only part that stood out was when the pastor talked about Isaiah/Yeshayahu 9. It is a prophecy written in the past tense about the future coming of Christ. It reads, "For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace..." (Isaiah 9:6/Yeshayahu 9:5)

It talks about the Messiah coming as a child and son, and also clearly states that He is God by His titles. It is written in the past-tense to emphasize the absolute certainty of this prophecy. It was guaranteed to happen, and so I thought all the guidance related to 213 and Celtic Woman also had to do with a guaranteed promise. But what exactly is the promise or promises?

Well, I told you one 213 Promise is in God’s love with His protection and Christ’s return. However, I still don't know exactly what God is talking about in a 213 Promise related to Celtic Woman and/or Irish culture. At the time, I thought I had to at least try and get the people of Celtic Woman saved into Christianity, so I sent them all copies of my first book hoping they would see the bigger picture of reality that included the truth of God and Christ. I haven't a clue what happened to the books or whether they had the intended impact, though.

Much later, I found out God actually gave me something related to 213, years before I believed. In 2005 or 2006, I was given a limited-edition poster of artwork from a motorcycle dealer for leading their Triumph rider group (photo below). The print was numbered 213 out of 675. I only realized it lining up with my new Christian life and ministry, two years after I started ministry, since I didn't pay much attention to the print number before knowing about the significance of 213. So I had the poster for about seven years before I noticed its 213 link.

God used my path in motorcycles and racing to guide me further in spiritual things and evangelize people I met in those activities. God also used motorcycle racing as a metaphor for the good fight or spiritual race that Christians have (1 Timothy 1:18-19, 6:12; 2 Timothy 4:7; 1 Corinthians 9:24; Hebrews 12:1-2), so the 213 nudge in the motorcycle poster had significant spiritual meaning. It also continued to show God's prophesied "wonders on the earth" (Joel 2:30/Yoel 3:3; Acts 2:19). The ones I brought up in this thread were only the beginning of these more physical wonders God has given me over the years.

They give concrete material evidence that God and Christ truly are real and that He does lead us in personal ways. If you've stayed with me through this thread so far, then I hope you see this too and are compelled to pursue a closer path with God, not simply with faith in Christ, but to pursue the further righteousness that goes with 213 that I teach.

Note that I emphasize walking more righteous in a closer path with God rather than focusing mostly on closeness with God, or as many in the church say, having a personal relationship with Him. We'll soon see why I make this distinction. But as for righteousness, being further washed is necessary, because I'm sure you've also noticed that communities of believers are being caught in the same horrible tribulations that are coming upon the non-believing world.

Non-believers say it is only by chance, accident, climate change, or any other nonspiritual cause that believers are caught in the same tribulations as the rest of the world, and so there is no evidence that God or the sins of mankind are being judged by Him. However, I hope through the evidences God has given here and in many other things He's given me, that you see with spiritual eyes and will change your ways, even if you are already a believer, because there is a lot the church and other believing communities, like Judaism and Islam, have gotten wrong. They too err in being righteous, just like the rest of the world, and so also have judgment come upon them.

A very common but big way believers err is in using teaching that very much goes with this Valentine's Countdown - Like the world that sees too much romance in Valentine's Day, believers use too much carnal, worldly love in a walk with God. In yesterday's post, I said that the word for romantic or passionate love (eros), is never used in the New Testament, but it is very common to use eros love in false teachings that emphasize having a personal relationship with Christ. This is another area where believers often view me with disdain, but I need to talk about this because God sent me timely reminders for this post (an article about romantic love in Hinduism just came to my inbox today[3.1]).

Teachings that emphasize carnal, more romantic views of God and relationships with God are very unhealthy in similar ways as seeing life in general that way. You do not see life accurately that way and can become obsessed with, even addicted to, the wrong versions of life and God. It also makes you unable to discern what is good, true, and healthy. Emphasizing a personal relationship with Christ may seem harmless, but false teaching and acting in them can be a very serious sins and the false teachings that are associated with carnal, personal relationships with God and Christ have roots in the Baals of this age - imposters of God, Christ, and the saints and angels (see Ministry Warnings, Light Within, and Baal Testimonies for more about carnal false teachings).

They very much emphasize spiritual rapture and much more personal lives with them. And like romantic partners who use love and affection against their partners to chain and subdue them in abusive and unhealthy relationships, the Baals of this age do the same with believers by replacing our true God and Christ with themselves as spirits of slavery that chain believers with false doctrine that often emphasizes strict and daily observances of commands and ways to live.

These devices of Satan are not new, as they go back to the ancient Jews (see Baal Testimonies for more) and are used by the spirits of other religions, such as Hinduism where some male poets go so far as to write as a woman longing for her lover in romantic poems to their deities[3.1]. This is no different than the church has done with her overly romantic relationships with Christ in songs, like by Phil Wickham and Michael W. Smith, using obviously eros love with songs, such as "Divine Romance" and "Deep In Love With You" (see Song Ratings for more).

But didn't God include King Solomon/Shlomo's very carnally, romantic, Song of Songs/Shir HaShirim in the Bible to represent the relationship between God and His people?

And what about the Greatest Commandment I quoted at the beginning? You could say these passionate, eros pursuits with God are examples of "love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength" (Mark 12:29-30). They just passionately love God, you might say.

Certainly they do, as do I, but the Bible also never teaches us to have rapturous, eros, carnally romantic lives with God. False teaching from the Baals of this age, though, are full of these eros focuses, so be passionate with and for God, but reject the carnal type of spiritual lives I have red-flagged. The ways they are unhealthy for people go far beyond what I've brought up here (see Ministry Warnings, Light Within, and Baal Testimonies for more about carnal false teachings).

In Song of Songs/Shir HaShirim, God may have made a metaphor with His people using carnal love, but we must remember it is an analogy to show how both God and His people should long for each other and that the realization that God and Christ are real is like the spark of wonderment in a romantic relationship. God did NOT mean this romantic metaphor to be taken into literal eros personal lives with Him. As I said, that is not taught in the Bible.

If you've been in such a spiritual life, then I urge you to change because of all the spiritual and worldly darkness that goes with such pursuits. Many view me with hate when I show them the truth in their carnal spiritual focuses, but as Yeshua asked the Jews who wanted to put Him to death, "For what are you stoning me?" (John 10:32) I may not shew miracles like Christ, but I speak the truth and have shared many of God's miracles and wonders in the sky and on the earth that testify what is truly from God.

Now to finish up, in the other posts, I talked about gems and colors associated with the numbers and virtues that were brought up. There are no one or two gems or colors only associated with God. The same colors and gems that I brought up with Christ on the 3rd day also belong to God, the Father, since they are one – Gold, white, Jasper, Sardius, bronze, and radiant sunshine.

But you might say jasper and sardius, from the picture of God on His throne in Revelation 4:3, go more with God the Father, than Christ, since you could say it is God, the Father, who sits there, not Christ. However, I already gave evidence that Christ sits on the same throne, for Yeshua said, "I and [God] are one" (John 10:25-30). And through the years, God also gave me many more evidences that Yeshua the Messiah truly was and is the same and equal with God the Father (see Proof that God and Mashiach - Christ are truly One for more).

Purple is another color I didn’t bring up before that can be associated with both God, the Father, and Christ, since it is the color of royalty, and Yeshua was given a purple robe when He was being mocked and beaten (John 19:1-2).

Rainbows have also been associated with God, because He first made the rainbow as the sign of a covenant or promise to never destroy the earth with flood again (Genesis/Bereishit 9:11-17). The image of God on His throne in Revelation also has a green rainbow around it that shone like an emerald (Revelation 4:3), which in the posts above I said, green and emeralds represent true, pure faith and life.

In my personal guidance, I was also shown garnet and ruby symbolize Christ, which I mentioned in the 3rd post. A garnet’s blood red color and being much more easily scratched or marred than ruby, symbolizes Christ as a man before He died, His blood shed, and being beaten when He was crucified. Rubies, which are usually a much brighter and lighter red than garnet, and very hard, second only to diamond, symbolize Christ in His renewed, resurrected state.

That ends this post. Tomorrow will be Valentine’s Day when I will talk more about its history and the connections to guidance with the number 214. God bless you all in Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

Valentine's Day - What Does God Have in 2/14? 2/14/2024
Valentine’s Day arrived, so I hope your day is filled with the grace of God’s love on you as you also give love and goodwill to others. I talked a lot about what God’s love means in this countdown, and that romantic or passionate, eros love isn’t in the New Testament. However, romantic love is widely associated with this holiday, and many believers may shun it as they do Christmas and other holidays that appear to have pagan origins.
Is there more to these holidays than the church’s attempts to take over and replace pagan holidays? If you read the previous posts in this thread, you saw God is showing that is not to the case for Valentine’s Day, at least. He gave a lot of physical correlations with the meaning of numbers and aligning of events, objects, scripture, and people to say there is more going on than most people, even in the church, think. So if you haven’t read the previous posts, you should go to the top and do so now.

It’s true many of God’s holidays have been corrupted and usurped by notions from the world’s unchecked focuses and misled religions, including within God’s people. But that doesn’t mean some holidays don’t have origins in God. I’ve found the Lord has allowed much confusion and intermixing with what is light and dark for many reasons, so we need to try and sift out the dirt and useless rock to get at the gems God made.

Valentine’s Day is heavily romanticized today, and some historians think it was simply a Christian relabeling of the ancient festival of Lupercalia (6th Century B.C.)[4.1], which happens at nearly the same time in February. Lupercalia is named after Lupercus, the Roman fertility god, and Lupercal, the cave where it’s said the Romans started the festival every year with a sacrifice of goats and a dog[4.1].

Lupercalia, though, is on February 15th, not the 14th, but it does have a lot to do with fertility and the random pairing of couples, who sometimes did fall in love and marry afterwards[4.1]. Today, we need to separate Lupercalia with Valentine’s Day. There certainly is God’s love in Valentine’s Day, but it is a more universal, “agape” love, as I said before.

And because there were two, likely three, different ministers named Valentine who were martyred on February 14th in separate years[1.2, 4.2, 4.3], you have to conclude God is trying to say there is more to Valentine’s Day than just a reworking of Lupercalia. I now see God had the theme of love linked with Valentine’s Day on purpose, but because of the world’s excessive focus on romantic and carnal love, that kind of love, or “eros” love, took over the holiday.

God means to have His love, “agape” love, associated with this holiday. Agape is better translated as "love and charity" to emphasize that romantic love isn't the main focus in it, and last time, I said God's love includes the promise of love and protection for believers of sufficient righteousness. That was contained in the meaning of the numbers for 213 or 2/13. I also said 213 represents the end of this age, so 214 or 2/14, which is today, also represents a point in time.

If you remember, 13 means God’s promise in which only He can deliver, so 14 represents the next step in that. 14 means God’s promise delivered, also in which only He can bring about. Nothing we do to try to bring about the promise will make the promise come. It always comes by God's hand or divine help. All this means, 214 is the point in time after 213, which is when Christ actually returns and when we are Raptured to reign with Him in the next age (Revelation 20:4) – 214 is the beginning of the next age, Christ’s 1000 year Millennial Reign, and there is nothing mankind can do to make Christ return sooner or start the new age - only God can do this by His timing and power, so praying or doing other things to try and speed that up will not work.

God’s love in His return for us is an assured 214 promise, but it depends wholly on the Lord when that happens. Scripture gives clues for the timing of it, but I’m not going to discuss detailed theology here (see Myth 4 about the Rapture in Light Within for more). I do want to emphasize again, that these numbers, guidance, and scripture related to them all correlate to affirm that the Rapture is not until the absolute end of this age. I gave a link to scripture affirming 213 last time, and this time I’ll do the same for 214, and note that there are no less than four scripture links with it that go with the Rapture. If you want the details, see 214 in The Meaning of Numbers.

Hopefully these things will bring people who are still stuck in erroneous teaching to realize the Rapture is not going to be what saves them in the tribulations that are coming. They think simply being saved in Christ is all they need. That is only true of the Rapture. Everyone saved in Christ, dead or alive, at His return will be transformed at the twinkling of an eye, but that is after the tribulations at the end of this age.

It’s sufficient righteousness, as I said, that will protect believers in the Tribulation, and that is reinforced by scripture links to 213 I gave, like Titus 2:13, that speak about leaving behind sin - Say, ‘No,’ to ungodliness and worldly passions… while we wait for the blessed hope, the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Yeshua Mashiach [Jesus Christ] (Titus 2:12-13).

Now, I know “sufficient righteousness,” “sin,” and “ungodliness” are really vague. Those words don’t give enough detail, which is one reason why much of the church thinks they are already sufficiently righteous to be kept safe in the times we’re in. Combined with the false belief of the Rapture saving them before the worst times, this has made the church think they don’t have to change or do anything more.

However, the woman of Revelation 12, who represents the part of the church that has gained the sufficient righteousness I speak of, is kept safe for a time, times, and half a time (Revelation 12:14). That is a time period referring to the worst of the Tribulations at the end of this age, when the final antichrist is in power, and is persecuting believers who are not of sufficient righteousness.

How do I know that? Because the dragon or Satan, from whom the antichrist has power, will turn away from the protected woman (protected believers) to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yeshua (Revelation 12:17). Obviously, those children are believers in Christ (Christians and Messianic Jews because they hold to the testimony of Yeshua), and they try to follow God (keep the commandments of God), yet they are not part of the protected church - the Woman who is given the wings of an eagle so that she could fly to a place where she'd be protected in that a time, times, and half a time (Revelation 12:14).

This probably wasn’t the message you were expecting for a Valentine’s Day post, but I’m certain the Lord has worked everything together like this to show His love for everyone, so that they may stay alert in these times and listen to His warnings. His great love for you will be delivered to you even before His return, because God devises ways so that a banished person does not remain banished from him (2 Samuel 14:14).

Do you see the links to Love, Promises Delivered, and 214 in that verse? 2 Samuel 14:14 shows God’s love (2) for us, which is delivered (14), through ways He plans, so that an unrighteous person would not continue to stay apart from Him. The two 14’s in that verse go with today’s 2/14, in that God is showing you all these links through love, scripture, Valentine’s Day, and miracles of alignments to bring nonbelievers into salvation in Christ, and to bring believers to the further righteousness they need for our times, which also must include keeping their salvation in Christ.

In the last post, I also showed how the Messiah Christ was also equal with God. They are truly One (Deuteronomy/Devarim 6:4; Mark 12:29, 12:32; John 10:30), but not simply One, the first and beginning, but also the Only One and Only God and King, because the Hebrew word, echad, pronounced "eh-khahd", used in Deuteronomy/Devarim for one can also mean "only, alone, or once for all"[4.4], so when God is saying, He is One, He also refers to being the Only God.

When Yeshua haMashiach (the Messiah) was conversing with a Jewish scribe about the Greatest Commandment to love God (Deuterononomy/Devarim 6:5; Matthew 22:36-38; Mark 12:28-30; Luke 10:27), the scribe replied, "You have truly stated that [God] is One, and there is no other besides Him" (Mark 12:32), because he knew the Tanakh (Hebrew scriptures) said, there is only one true God (Deuteronomy/Devarim 4:35, 32:39; 1 Chronicles/Divrei Hayamim I 17:20; Isaiah/Yeshayahu 43:10-11, 44:6, 46:9-10).

But furthermore, because Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus) was also anointed King of kings (Matthew 21:5, 27:11; Mark 15:2; Luke 19:38, 23:2-3; John 12:13-15, 18:33-37; 1 Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14; 19:16), as well as being One with God, it is God Himself as the returning Messiah that will stand on the Mount of Olives and become the Only King to reign on the earth (Zechariah/Zecharya 14:4, 14:9; 1 Timothy 6:15; Psalm 47:7/Tehillim 47:8). This of course, goes with 214 marking the beginning of the next age.

If all I've shared is not enough to convince you that God and Christ are real and one and the same, then perhaps the following testimony and evidence about God's love for everyone will have you step in more faith (see more evidence here...).

In 2022, a believer connected with me seeking help with spiritual matters. In our conversations, she told me about how her believing grandmother made a vow on her deathbed to her unbelieving son (the father of the person who connected with me). The grandmother said she would help his faith from the other side in any way she could.

The family believes she died at exactly 12:12, because the clock stopped working. They thought it had become unplugged or there was a power outage, but it was a battery backed-up clock plugged into an outlet. Through the years they remembered grandma whenever 12:12 popped up, but they couldn’t see her message from heaven; Not until this believer connected with me, because this 12:12 would only get its full meaning when I told her about 222 and God’s love.

How does 12:12 connect with 222 and God's love? I already told you that 2 means Agape Love. However, I did not share what God gave me related to 222 in this thread, so let's see what other wonders on the earth God hid (Joel 2:30/Yoel 3:3; Acts 2:19).

The first time the 222 triplicate appears in the Bible is Genesis 2:22 (Note: Number triplicates are not always bad, like 666. They simply mean a full amplification of whatever the number goes with). This is where God makes Eve/Chavah to be a wife and companion for Adam. This verse show's God's unconditional love for Adam - he did not need to do anything for God's love or to receive the blessing that came from it.

Then the next time 222 appears in the Bible is Genesis 22:2. That verse has the very first use of the word, love, in the Bible. It is where God tells Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac/Yitzhak. This seems like an unusually unloving event to connect with love, but we will soon see why this is also significant.

When I first spoke to the believer about her grandmother, I did not realize 12:12 linked to 222, but she said 12:12 is a double of 12, and 12 is three 2's or 222, because 12:12 is equal to 6+6 : 6+6, which is equal to 2+2+2 + 2+2+2 : 2+2+2 + 2+2+2, giving us 222+222:222+222; four 222’s. After this, I could see the grandmother's vow was fulfilled in the moment she died, but its meaning was hidden until God led this family to me.

To help her unbelieving son into faith (and God’s message to help everyone else too), God stopped the clock at 12:12 when she died to point to the proof in 2 and 222 that God and the love of God in Christ are absolutely real. Add this scriptural numbering alignment to the numbering that shows God truly is love that I brought up in 2 Days before Valentine's as more concrete proof of God (remember "God is love" is "Yahovah is agape" is "26 is 26"). Just like with the God is love numbering, the 222 numberings in the Bible verses are impossible to explain away as coincidence - both verses are obviously linked to love and rely on exact numbers to align.

This alignment is like finding two pieces of a perfectly heart-shaped stone in a bed of more than 5000 ordinary stones. That analogy isn’t far off, because there are over 5000 Hebrew words and 564 lines (verses) from Genesis 2:22 to 22:2. If you still want to dismiss the alignment, you have to understand that adding or removing just one chapter (group of lines/verses) between Genesis 2 and 22 or one line at the beginning of Genesis 2 or 22 will throw off the alignment with Love.

There can be no coincidental alignment like that. Obviously, God “engineered” or premeditated the words of the Bible for the theme of love to align, but even more, God gave other physical nudges with the clock stopping at 12:12, as well as something else I noticed in the conversations with the believer.

She brought up matching pendants that she and her sister had (photo below). It is a heart formed by angel wings, which I noted has two halves, just like the two halves God hid in the two 222 Bible verses related to love. I was certain that these physical alignments were God's nudges to help this woman, who is a believer, to bring her sister, who is not a believer, to also come to faith in Christ since they have matching pendants.

All these more physical, tangible alignments are important links with the meanings in their related Bible verses. The first 222 of Genesis 2:22 shows how God loves us all with unconditional love - He will help, guide, and bless anyone whether or not they believe in Him or not. I've seen this in people's lives and my own, as well, when God gave me nudges and guidance to have faith in Christ even years before I believed (see Predestined for more). He is still doing this throughout the world now with subtle hints and clues everywhere. I'm certain He's done the same for you, like He did for this believer's family testimony, which I must also note, I got in 2022, and what happens if we remove the zero? We have the 222 triplicate. God truly has our destinies in His hands.

However, people must heed these nudges and God's guidance to get full help and blessing from Him. This goes with the next time 222 appears in scripture - Genesis 22:2, where God told Abraham, "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac/Yitzhak, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you." This is the first use of the word love in the Bible, but it is where God tells Abraham to kill his only son. Many of you probably already know this part of the Bible and remember that God was testing Abraham, so God didn't really want him to kill Isaac.

However, the important part of this is that Abraham tried to do as God said with faith that He would bring Isaac back to life (Hebrews 11:17-19). God stopped Abraham with a knife in hand, ready to sacrifice Isaac. "The angel of Yahovah called to him from heaven and said, 'Abraham, Abraham!' And he answered, 'Here I am.' [God] said, 'Do not reach out your hand against the boy, and do not do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me'" (Genesis/Bereishit 22:11-12).

God tested Abraham whether or not he revered the Lord enough to obey His command even though it meant killing his son. Abraham passed the test, and it is this respect and obedience to God that is important in completing the other 222 half that God hid in scripture - Complete love for God must include obedience to His commands, which means walking in the righteousness He defines, not the notions man defines or man erroneous thinks God defined.

The second 222 half of obedience to God completes true love for God. Faith in Him and Christ are only the beginning. Faith may be the first half of and beginning of love for God, but to get further help and blessings from God, we must show the kind of love for God that Abraham showed - obey God and walk in further righteousness. That involves having healthy fear of the Lord (Genesis/Bereishit 22:12), because God said He test Abraham in whether or not he feared Him. This virtue gives great respect and honor to God so that we keep from sin by keeping His commands, and fear is the word used because we should fear God's judgment when we are tempted to do wrong or when we do wrong.

So again, complete love for God MUST include obedience to His commands, and the New Testament affirms this when Apostle John said, "In fact, this is love for God: to keep His commands" (1 John 5:3). Yeshua even said the same thing, "If you love Me, keep My commands" (John 14:15; also John 14:21-24, John 15:14).

Truly, God devises ways so that a banished person does not remain banished from him (2 Samuel 14:14). You've seen how He miraculously worked many signs and physical things in the real world to move those without faith to believe and to move those of less faith to go further. I hope all of you see now, even you believers out there, that God hid these things and revealed them to me, specifically, so that you would pay attention to the teachings and works of this ministry.

I often see believers scoff at what I say and leave my counsel because of the false beliefs and bad teachings they got from their sect, whether it is Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. But very uncoincidentally, all of this goes with today and the promises of God I was talking about in 213 and 214 - promises of further blessing and protection in these harsh times that only God can give, but they require pursuing further righteousness that He revealed to me. That requires leaving less commonly understood sins, but involves much more discussion and spiritual maturity for those who want to hear (see God's Alarm for a start and Maturing in Christ for more).

So if you want to begin your journey into God’s promise of love and protection now, publicly proclaim and maintain loyalty to Christ. Never deny your faith to anyone, because that unrighteousness will eliminate you from being part of the protected believers, as well as have you denied in heaven, for Yeshua said, Whoever denies Me before people, I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven (Matthew 10:33). This is part of the greater workings of the New Covenant, which you will find more details in The True Gospel and Imposters.

Then to work toward that sufficient righteousness of protected believers - the Bride with wings of an eagle (Revelation 12:14), become truly loyal to God through Christ – make Him a real person in your life through prayer and work on getting rid of sin for you and your household – the commonly understood sins, as well as the less understood. I have the lessons here, most of which are God-given exclusively only to this ministry, so may you continue in steps of faith with me.

Christ is knocking at your door and if you hear His voice and open the door, He will come in and dine with you (Revelation 3:20), to guide, lift, and mature you, just as you’ve seen He did with me. You can trust in that promise.

In this Countdown, I noted that eros love is not used in the New Testament, and in fact, I could not find any instance of the adoration or rapturous kind of love that is used by imposter spirits of God and the saints - the Baals of this age. However, there is another Greek word for love used in the New Testament that is more affectionate than agape and was used by Christ and His disciples, so let's look at that.
