Johnny Cash was an American original.
He blurred the line between Rock, Country, and Folk and walked the line between Rebel and Religion.
"My way of communicating with God," he once wrote, "is through the lyrics of a song."

"Signs"


To repeat the last paragraph of the last chapter:

Since this started, I also came to the realization that I am not the only one giving the "message." As I began to "see" things with new eyes, and "hear" things with new ears, I began to realize that there are many who are telling the "message" but people just aren't aware of it because, like I was, they are only looking and hearing on the surface. No one has told them to look and listen deeper. Perhaps that is my purpose. To tell you. No, I am not paranoid or deluded. In fact, just try it. Start listening to some of the songs on the radio, especially the 'Love' songs or the songs classified as "Light Rock", start reading some of the comic strips in the newspaper from this new perspective and you will see too.

London Free Press, February 19, 2000, Copyright by Charles Schulz.

"Who are these people?" you ask. Again, I prefer not to say. They must have their own personal reasons why they do not come right out and say it. I do not know. Perhaps the time has not been right. Perhaps they are waiting for the right opportunity. Perhaps this paper will be that opportunity that they have been waiting for. Perhaps this paper will open the door for many people to come forward. Perhaps now they will be "in the right place at the right time" too.

Update:  Prophet or Profit?

Since I initally wrote the above section, I have attempted to contact many of these individuals to ask them, "Why won't you say anything? What is the big secret?" Unfortunately, I do not know any of them personally and cannot get past the "business" to ask them. As time goes by and I see the true extent of it in the music industry, I believe that many people may be angry when - and if - the truth is finally revealed. Many will feel "used" and, even worse, will feel that God Himself has been used by these artists for their own personal fame and fortune.
      

   
As one singer/songwriter says in one of her songs, she "hates it" when people say, "Well you know you got a song out of it." A Song? More like a multi-billion dollar INDUSTRY! This is one perspective, from someone outside looking in. I would dearly love to understand theirs, if any of them would care to explain it to me. (Yes, it obviously has to do with LOVE, but, are you looking at the "big picture" in the "right" direction? This is NOT a "game for two." Some of you think He has "left you." I do not believe He has gone anywhere. He is where He has always been. You simply need to "turn around" and you will see Him). What do I see from my perspective? A lot of "lost" Prophets. Please find your way back to God. He needs you. We need you. (I use the word "Prophet" in the context of "someone who God reveals Himself to for the purpose of telling/warning others.")
 
   

After having said all this from a negative perspective, I can also see from a positive perspective that it all HAS to be this way. I read a quote recently which made me think about this situation in this context:  The quote was,"Timing is everything when you go to market." God is the master of timing. Even though we don't understand now, we must remember that "hindsight is 20/20" and that someday we will be able to look back and say, "Oh... THAT'S why." Everything is a matter of connections. A must happen before B and C cannot happen until B happens. And A, B and C are all part of God's Plan and His Timetable.
   

For example, if these artists had not "suffered" (i.e. broken-hearts - "And when the broken-hearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, Let It Be") (A) I would never have figured this out (B). It only began when I felt compassion for someone and tried to help. Also, if this is to make the impact that it has to make (C), then it has to be so pervasive and big that it will not be able to be denied. It has to include most - if not all - of these artists so that when this is revealed, people will be able to turn on their radios, stereos and televisions and hear it and see it everywhere. The timing has to be perfect. (I hope this does not interfere with Anyone's Plan, but based on what I see and hear, the timing might just be "right"?)
 
   

 


August 2002 Update:


To all the broken-hearted who have been ... Called:
 

 
THE Answer  

When all the broken-hearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, Let It Be.
   

     
(Please note that this is my unverified opinion/interpretation regarding these artists and their true intentions; but also, that I believe this so strongly that I would stake my life on it. I mean that. Please also note that those whom I have chosen to reference were inspired by the moment. There are so many more that I could have also included. Oh, if you could only see what I see.)   

"And we're waiting for someone to see"

Now verified by Johnny Cash. See beginning of this chapter.
AND Chris de Burgh. See July 23, 2003 Chris de Burgh Question.
 
 


           



Yes, THE answer does lie in LOVE, but...  
 

LOVE is a simple, general word that can be further subdivided into more specific meanings. I believe the meaning of Love that you have chosen, is NOT the meaning that was intended. Let me explain:

   
The Greek language has four words for Love: Eros, Philios, Storge, and Agape.

You are thinking Eros; He is thinking Agape, and therein lies THE answer that you have been seeking.

Question:
The first time I heard the song Quiet Revolution it made me cry because it was so beautiful, and reminded me of the Baha'i community. Can you tell us more about the background of the song and what was the inspiration for it?

Chris de Burgh:
You know, I’m a person that is not particularly fond of organized religion, but I do believe that the spiritual side of the world, in spite of all these disasters and war is making a very very big, not even come-back, but there’s a feeling around so many people. I think, as organized religion begins to crumble, people are searching for something else. And it could be we’re heading for a new age of enlightment, where the spirit world is becoming more obvious and more tangible and more important to us. So that’s what “Quiet Revolution” is all about. It’s about the fact that like a revolution, people are keeping it underground. And the enemy I refer to is the media, because if the media suspects you involved in anything like this, they can make a complete laughing stock of you. So I always kept my mouth shut about it. But I do believe a lot of people, surprising people, you know, people that you wouldn’t even believe, are interested in the supernatural and another dimension. They talk about it and they are very aware of it. So I found that very exciting.

Question:
Chris, in your song A Spaceman Came Travelling what is the reference to 2000 years and is it to do with Jesus?
It's an awesome song among your many. I think you're the songwriter of all time, I love the mystical stuff, thanks.

Chris de Burgh:
This was written one hot August day in the early seventies, I think it must have been 1974. I have always believed in the possibility that there is another dimension. And I think human beings would be very arrogant to suggest that we are the only people within our particular universe, because our audio spectrum is limited, our visual spectrum is limited. Just because we can’t see and touch something, we cannot deny its existence. I think we are all too much of a scientific point of view where you have to have it actually banging into your head before you see something actually exists. I don’t believe that at all, I think there is a lot more going on out there than we have any idea about. And so I am, as I said, a “what if” person. “A Spaceman Came Travelling”, what if the star of Bethlehem was indeed a spacecraft from another galaxy, another being keeping an eye on the world and announcing that the birth of Jesus was going to have a massive effect on humanity for the rest of history, which it has done. It’s certainly to do with Jesus’ birth. And the reference to 2000 years goes back to a belief amongst many who think that there is a spiral or a gyre that returns every 2000 years of immense historical significance for the world. And that’s what I had in my mind. Loosely also based on a poem that you readers might want to have a look at by the Irish poet William Butler Yeats. The poem is called “The second coming”. And you’ll find hints of “A Spaceman Came Travelling” in that poem.

STRANGE PHENOMENA
Kate Bush

Soon it will be the phase of the moon
When people tune in.
Every girl knows about the punctual blues,
But who’s to know the power behind our moves?
 
A day of coincidence with the radio,
And a word that won’t go away.
We know what they’re all going to say.
"G" arrives--"funny, had a feeling he was on his way!"
 
We raise our hats to the strange phenomena.
Soul-birds of a feather flock together.
We raise our hats to the hand a-moulding us.
 
Sure ’nuff, he has the answer,
He has the answer,
He has the answer.
You pick up a paper. You read a name.
You go out. It turns up again and again.
You bump into a friend you haven’t seen for a long time,
Then into another you only thought about last night.
 
You hear your sister calling for you,
But you don’t know where from.
You know there’s something wrong,
But you don’t want to believe in a premonition.
 
We raise our hats to the strange phenomena.
Soul-birds of a feather flock together.
We raise our hats to the hand a-moulding us.
 
Sure ’nuff, he has the answer,
He has the answer,
He has the answer.

Entertainment, A Year Later
CNN) -- Somehow, it should be a different world. The country -- the planet -- goes through a cataclysm like the September 11 attacks, and one expects everything to change. But in the year since September 11, 2001, entertainment and pop culture don't appear to have changed much.

"You are probably wondering what significance 11:11 has to me as a singer and songwriter and why I named my first album 11:11. It all started several years ago when 11:11 would appear on the clock when I had difficult times or abrupt changes in my life. I would see it as a reminder of something, but of what I did not exactly know. Some friends of mine say they always make a wish when they see it. I think there is so much more to it, and every time I do see it, I stop and reflect. All of my life I wanted to help people and the best way I know how is through my music and songs. The relationships I have had, have been the most important influence in my song writing. I have been blessed with many experiences, some not so wonderful and others beautiful but all equally extraordinary. These experiences have given me the ability to write my songs in the most passionate way. To me this all ties into 11:11."  
 
 
Michael Macrone
Quartet 11:11 
Michael Macrone and Randy Porter have exactly this much to say about quartet 11:11 (Zeus Quartet No. 1):

"We undertook this joint composition for a number of good reasons, which are so good we needn't rehearse them here. The title is also a collaboration, joining together our remembrances of childhood delight in clocks with myths of the usurping of fathers. It won't help your understanding of the piece (even assuming that were desirable), but you may think of the figure '11:11' as a double bifurcation of indivisible unities - pairing and division, reflection and identity. Not exactly like fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, violin and violin, but probably worth saying maybe once. In the mid-1970s, the telling of time was transformed. The arrival of the digital clock gave time's diplay new visual meaning. The particluar hour '11:11' - a suggested brunching time - has been especially significant to us. It is the only time when we can marvel at four identical digits, beautiful in their simplicity. The event was a source of endless amazement to our families, who could witness it twice daily, like clockwork. It was a ritual that transformed time, human experience, and literacy. 'The clock struck ones' -- four of them, to be exact. Now suppose that each '1' represents the correct amount of Arabian horsehair necessary to string a bow. A string quartet should inevitably follow. The possible juxtapositions are endless: 1111, 1111, or ... 1111, etc. Why two composers and only one piece? Well, like time, like 11:11 itself, it has to do with change and new ways of thinking..."

Woke up this morning at 11:11
Wasn't in Portland and I wasn't in heaven
Could have been either by the way I was feeling
But I was alive, I was alive
 
Woke up this morning at 11:11
John was half-naked and Lulu was crying
Over a baby that will never go crazy
 
But I was alive
And kicking through this cruel world
Holding a notion of you at 11:11
 
Tell me what else can I do
What else can I do?
Woke up this morning at 11:11
Realized that everything really does happen in Manhattan
Thoughts were of characters and afternoons lying
And you, you were alive
 
Oh the hours we are separate
11:11 is just precious time we've wasted
 
So patch up your bleeding hearts
And put away your posies
I'm gonna have a drink
Before we ring around the rosies with you

Back in the 1990s when I was hanging, writing, recording and playing with my pals John Patitucci and Steve Taviglione,
every time wed look at the clock it was 11:11 whether it was morning or night,

Planets Venus And Jupiter The Star Of Bethlehem February 24, 1999

BETHLEHEM, West Bank (Reuters) - Venus and Jupiter converged over the traditional birthplace of Jesus Tuesday night in much the way some scientists say they may have done to give rise to the story of the Star of Bethlehem.

As elsewhere on Earth for a limited time after sunset, the two planets appeared nearly to meet, together shining brighter than the other planets.

Church bells pealed after dark in Bethlehem, where according to Christian tradition a brightly shining star beckoned the Three Wise Men to the birthplace of Jesus 2,000 years ago.

"Because of the situation of Earth, Venus and Jupiter, you can see them close to each other," said Yigal Pat-El, head of the Israel Astronomy Association who watched the rare convergence -- called a conjunction -- through a powerful telescope in Givatayim near Tel Aviv.

"And something very interesting about this conjunction is that about 2,000 years ago the two planets were in conjunction, but so very, very close that perhaps you couldn't distinguish between the two planets with the naked eye," he said.

"So it appeared as one big planet and scientists think that probably it's the star of Bethlehem that appeared in the same year that Jesus was born," he told Reuters.

No, I do not know when Jesus will be returning. No one knows, except God Himself. All I know is that it could be anytime. It could be today, it could be tomorrow, it could be next year, it could be a hundred years from now or longer. All I know is that I believe that it is going to happen. Someday.

If I told you it was going to happen in 100 years, you might say, "It isn't going to happen in my lifetime, so I'm not going to worry about it." If I told you it was going to happen in 10 years, you might say, "I have plenty of time. I'll wait a few more years and then I will really make an effort to change." But, if I told you it was going to happen next week (and could prove it), I can imagine the reaction would be quite different. I can imagine the entire world in a mad panic apologizing and repenting and being as kind and helpful and loving as they possibly could. But is that not the point? We are not supposed to wait until the last minute to decide to "Change Our Ways." We are supposed to live our lives believing that it could be tomorrow, believing that this could be our last day. Why? Because it COULD!

All I know is that I believe that I am supposed to tell you - to warn you - to give you what could possibly be a...
FINAL CHANCE
?

London Free Press, August 7, 1999, Copyright 1999 by Charles Schulz.


Update: Since I wrote the above section, I have learned a great deal and many things have happened. I do believe that we are in the "Last Days" and that Jesus' return is very near. I previously believed that we were not to know the time, but I have since found the following verse which implies that if we ARE watching, we CAN know:

Various other "signs" have occurred in the heavens since I initially wrote this paper. Please note that buried within these "signs" are "clues." As I said before, God provides the clues, but it is up to us to see them. Just as Sherlock Holmes chides his enduring friend Dr. John H. Watson in A Scandal in Bohemia, "You see, but you do not observe," God also chides us:



Some of these signs are as follows:

1) January 23, 1999

The biggest gamma ray burst ever seen (called the Second Biggest Bang) occurred in the constellation Bootes (The Coming Shepherd) (aka Jesus). Was this a "sign" for "Get ready, I'm coming" ?

This constellation is near The Big and Little Dippers which are considered the "sheep pens." Some believe these are symbols for the two Raptures - the first (pre-tribulation) when Jesus comes for the group of people who are the Bride of Christ (the Philadelphians; the "wise virgins"; those who believe and are watching and ready) and the second (pre-wrath) for those who make up the remainder of the Body of Christ (the Laodiceans; the "foolish virgins"; those who are neither "hot nor cold".)

2) April 4, 1999   (4/4)  New Solar System Discovered.

"In an astronomical first, researchers have discovered three large planets spinning around a star 44 light-years from Earth -- the first clear evidence that our solar system is not unique...This will shake up the theory of planet formation."

3) August 11, 1999   Rare Total Solar Eclipse.

Date:  August 11th
Time:  11:11 am
Path:   111 kilometers wide

"With the sun at the height of it's 11 year cycle of activity (11 year increasing activity followed by 11 year decreasing activity - 11:11), scientists hope this eclipse will let them learn more about the rarely sighted solar corona."

Jerusalem Moon Rise: 4:44 am
Jerusalem Sun Transit: 11:44

4) August 18, 1999   Grand Cross Alignment.

"The Grand Cross alignment of planets, which occurred a week after the solar eclipse of August 11, 1999 was the most unusual Astrology pattern of the last 2000 years. It consists of the Sun, Venus and Mercury in the sign of Leo; Mars and the Moon in Scorpio with Pluto close by in Sagittarius; Saturn and Jupiter in Taurus; and Neptune and Uranus in Aquarius. And if Scorpio is considered to be the Eagle, and Aquarius the man, then the Grand Cross has the four beasts seen in Revelation 4 of the Bible, where they sit at the throne of Heaven, and they have the faces of an eagle, a man, a lion, and a calf."

5) Novembers 1998 - 2003...   Leonid Meteor Storm.  

The Leonids are meteors from Comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle. A Leonid Meteor Shower occurs every year around November 18th; however, about every 33 years for a few years in a row, a Leonid Meteor Storm occurs. There can be hundreds or even thousands of shooting stars per hour. This bombardment of brilliant fireballs can literally make it look like the "sky is falling."
 
Note:
Jesus is believed by some to have been 33 years old when He was crucified and resurrected. Jesus is also connected to the constellation of LEO and to the LEOnids as the Lion King Of Judah.
(33 is also a significant number in the Freemasons.)
 
 
http://skyandtelescope.com/observing/objects/meteors/article_719_1.asp

"The curtain on the current Leonid saga rose in November 1998... And now, in 2002, we prepare for what indeed will be the grand finale."

Could this possibly be a metaphor - or Sign - for the Second Coming of Jesus?
   
   
It is interesting to note that during this "grand finale" over the week of November 18, 2002 there are a few other important celestial events also occurring. Not only do the Leonids occur, but there is also a Full Moon and a Lunar Eclipse. How could these be "signs?" One reason has to do with the number 33 which relates to Jesus:

Using my Redshift computer astronomy program, I found the following interesting information:
    
JERUSALEM:

NOTE:
It is also interesting that on the same day of this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, at 3:33 p.m. the constellation of The Phoenix begins to rise over the Southern (SE) horizon. This connects to The Rising of The Phoenix which connects to The Second Coming Of Jesus.
 
As everything is a matter of connections, it is interesting to make yet one more. Going back to my Music theme as described in the beginning of this chapter, it is interesting - and timely - that Bruce Springsteen's brand new album (and first single off that album) is entitled, The Rising. This too connects to The Rising of The Phoenix which connects to The Second Coming Of Jesus. Another song on that album is entitled, Into The Fire, and the first line is, "The sky was falling and streaked with blood." This connects to the Leonid Meteor Storm.

It is an interesting picture that is created when you connect all these dots.
   
 
 
With all the earthquakes of late occurring world-wide (which many believe are a "Sign" of the End Times), and especially the 7.9 Alaska quake of November 3, 2002, it would be very prophetic indeed if an earthquake occurred in the Phoenix, Arizona area over the next few weeks (November 19th?). What connects Phoenix even further to this is that it lies at a latitude of 33° 30'N (333). This would tie together many of the events discussed above and beyond any shadow of a doubt, be a "Sign."
   
        

"The curtain on the current Leonid saga rose in November 1998."
It is also interesting that November 1998 is the exact time that I began drawing my diagram of The Mind, only realizing on December 12th that my diagram also depicted The Mind of God and a Map of The Way. I am also a Leo, and Id refers to The Mind, so in essence, "The curtain on my current Leonid saga also rose in November 1998."  The past four years have shown me that this was no coincidence or accident.
 
    
    
November 16, 2002
 
Yesterday and today I had an interestingly enough set of synchronicities occur that I have decided to add them to this section:
 
Yesterday as I was signing out of AOL, the screen that was displayed caught my attention. It said, "Seeing Is Believing... Check out this week's most memorable photos." (The Seeing Is Believing caught my eye because that is the title of this paper that you are now reading. I have had numerous Seeing Is Believing syncs.)
 
This morning when I signed on to AOL, the screen that faced me was about the new Harry Potter movie which opened yesterday. It said, "The Secrets Are Revealed!" Of course this caught my attention. With yesterday's, "Seeing Is Believing... Check out this week's most memorable photos" still fresh in my mind, I decided to click on the pets link to view some of the movie's photos. Imagine my amazement when this picture was displayed:  Phoenix: "Fawkes is Dumbledore's pheonix who helps Harry get out of a tight spot."
   
And speaking of Dumbledore... it is also an interesting sync that the actor who plays Dumbledore is Richard Harris and Richard Harris is also the name of my father. And speaking of Richard Harris... (see what I mean about "connecting the dots?") Richard Harris played King Arthur in the movie Camelot. And speaking of King Arthur and Camelot... well, all the/my connections involved with that would require an entire new chapter by itself. (For example... my street.)
 
 
January 24, 2003
 
Just to add another interesting Harry Potter/Phoenix sync, the newest Harry Potter book (5th in the series) is entitled, 'The Order of the Phoenix.'  Its scheduled release date is June 21, 2003, which, I suspect is intentional, is also the date of the Summer Solstice (see #15 below as well as Chapter 15.)
 
 
October 14, 2003
 
Double Leonids  

The Leonid meteor shower is coming. Twice.
 
Bill Cooke of the Space Environments Group at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center explains: "Normally there's just one Leonid meteor shower each year, but this year we're going to have two: one on Nov. 13th and another on Nov. 19th."

Another metaphor/sign for the Second Coming of Christ?


(It is also interesting that this is happening in the same timeframe as the Harmonic Concordance. See #19 below. Also, at the same time as this Harmonic Concordance on November 8, 2003 there is a total lunar eclipse, and to add another 3:33 connection, "The Moon is expected to take 3 hours and 33 minutes to completely pass through the umbra.")

6) January 20, 2000   Rare Lunar Eclipse.

Middle of Eclipse: EST 11:44 pm

"The full moon is expected to turn brick red for more than an hour in a lunar eclipse visible throughout the Americas. "We expect this eclipse to be very bright, with the moon probably glowing a bright brick red," said Bradley E. Shaefer... Both the Bible and Islam's holy book the Koran warn of a time when "the sun shall turn to darkness and the moon shall turn to blood," said Shaefer."

7) May 5, 2000   (5/5)   Rare Planetary Alignment.

"It's been 6000 years since this particular celestial configuration last occurred. It's not clear what happened then and no one is absolutely sure what might happen now.

On May 5, 2000 there will be an unusual alignment of the sun, moon, and the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn within the same area of sky, roughly in a line, although actually spread over 25 degrees. Since the planets closest to earth are lined up in a row with the sun and moon, there has been a concern that his might cause increased gravitational stress on earth.

Since in the second half of 1999 there have been increased numbers of earthquakes around the world (such as in Taiwan and Mexico in September 1999, Southern California in October 1999, several in Turkey in 1999), it is quite possible there could be some major earthquakes worldwide in May 2000 from this increased gravitational stress on earth. It has been suggested that there could even be a polar shift (where the earth's poles move either because the earth itself shifts its axis, or the earth's crust slides over the core, because of the extra weight of the South pole ice cap making the earth unstable). Obviously a polar shift would be tremendously destructive to mankind, since tremendously high winds and great earthquakes will result."

Note:
It is important to repeat that no one knows what will happen. Perhaps something. Perhaps nothing.

9) February 16, 2000   Egyptians Find Ancient Tomb of Osiris.

Perhaps the Hall of Records will be next? Edgar Cayce prophesied that the Hall of Records is to be rediscovered and re-entered when 'the time has been fulfilled' - around the close of the twentieth century. His readings allude frequently to the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, contain numerous references to Jesus, and depict the rediscovery of the Hall of Records as being linked in some way to a series of events that will prelude the 'Second Coming' of Christ.

10) June 3, 2000  Archaeologists Discover Lost Cities Under Mediterranean.

"Archaelogists scouring the Mediterranean seabed announced they have found the 2,500-year-old ruins of submerged Pharaonic cities that until now were known only through Greek tragedies, travelogues and legends... This is the first time that historians have found physical evidence of the existence of the lost cities, which were famous not only for their riches and arts, but also for numerous temples dedicated to the gods Isis, Serapis and Osiris, making the region an important pilgrimage destination for various Pharaonic cults."

11) The 11:11 Phenomenon. (Also includes other numerical combinations such as 4:44 / 3:33 etc.)

UPDATED:  November 2000

***  I have moved this section to its own chapter. Please go to Chapter 13 - 11:11. ***

I believe that once more people realize that this is happening, and that it cannot be "explained," people will begin to "wake up" to the fact that God really does exist, and, once that is finally realized, everyone - in every scientific and philosophical field - will realize that everything IS connected, and everyone will work together to find the answers. For example, have you ever heard of the mathematical Fibonacci Series - Golden Ratio - PHI?  The answers ARE there. We just have to "wake up" and open our eyes to see them.

12) March, 2002    NGC 4622   Spiral Galaxy
 
"Astronomers have found a spiral galaxy that may be spinning to the beat of a different cosmic drummer. To the surprise of astronomers, the galaxy, called NGC 4622, appears to be rotating in the opposite direction to what they expected.
 
NCG 4622 resides 111 million light-years away in the constellation Centaurus."

14) April-May, 2002     Planetary Traffic Jam  

Excerpt from:   http://www.spacedaily.com/news/skynightly-02a.html

"The world hasn't seen anything like the planetary traffic jam that's going to occur the last week of April and the first two weeks in May!

Even more amazing, two very special events will occur during this planetary line-up. On May 10, the planets Mars and Venus will appear to pass so close to one another that, to the naked eye, the Roman God of War and the Roman Goddess of Love will become one.
 
Earlier, on May 5, something even more spectacular will happen. The bright planets Mars, Saturn and Venus will group together to form a perfect equilateral triangle in the western sky. This dazzling configuration will be visible almost everywhere on Earth. In the Middle East, this pyramid-shaped specter will hang directly above Bethlehem.
 
Oddly enough, more than 2,000 years ago, this same grouping of planets may have caught the attention of the Biblical Magi. On April 1, 2 B.C., the planets Mars, Saturn and Venus came together to form a perfect equilateral triangle over the city of Bethlehem. Now, in the 21st Century, amid the turmoil taking place in the Middle East, the ancient Roman gods of Love, War and Agriculture/Wisdom, are coming together to look down upon this war-ravaged landscape once again."

15) LEO and ORION ... 4:44 and 11:11

The constellations of LEO and ORION are very important "signs" related to the End Times. They are also connected to the mystery of the Sphinx and the Pyramids in Egypt. (Please read Chapter 13 - 11:11 and Chapter 14 - ORION for further information regarding this.)
 
In this Time in which we live, the times of 4:44 and 11:11 are very significant with respect to these two constellations. Look at what is happening at the Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox, and Winter Solstice. (By "rising" I mean that the entire constellation as a whole (not a particular star) is in the process of appearing over the Eastern horizon and by "setting" I mean disappearing below the Western horizon.)

One language of God is numbers/math. (Another is coincidence/synchronicity.)  One of God's signatures is Patterns, and these are not just random patterns, but patterns based on mathematical principles, thus proving that there was a Mind behind the design and creation. Examples include the Fibonacci Series/Golden Ratio/PHI which can be seen everywhere in nature in shell patterns, pine cones, sunflowers; as well as the patterns/cycles of time, etc. 11:11 and 4:44 are just part of this language - an important part, especially in these Times in which we live.
 
      
Updated: February 9, 2004
 
As discussed in this paper, 444 is a very significant number.
   
(Back in July of 2000 I came across a book that belongs to my father-in-law entitled 'Beyond Numeracy' by John Allen Paulos and on page 76 I read, "By an application of the principle of conservation of superstition, 444 might have acquired mystical significance...")
 
That is why April 4, 2004 is such an interesting date. It is 04/04/04.
 
(April 4, 2004 is also Palm Sunday, the first day of the Holy Week, and 7 days later on April 11 is Easter.)
 
I decided to look at my computer astronomy program, Redshift, to see if I could see anything interesting. I wanted to see what time Orion was rising over the eastern horizon from the vantage point of the Sphinx. I set the date to 04/04/04 and the location to Cairo. I forwarded the time and, as I wondered if it might, Orion has just completely risen over the horizon at 11:11 am. I wanted to see the exact time the last star of the constellation of Orion, Saiph, appeared over the horizon, so I clicked on that star and found that its exact time of rising is 11:11!  Now what are the chances of that?

On the night of August 26 - 27, Mars passed closer to Earth than it has in nearly 60,000 years.
 
  
Also on August 27, the controversial Ten Commandments monument at the Alabama Judicial Building was removed.
This symbolized humanity's rejection of God and was definitely a sign of the Last Days/End Times.

GIANT SUNSPOTS: Astronomers can't remember the last time this happened:
Two Jupiter-sized sunspots (named "484" and "486") crossing the face of the sun at the same time.

 

 
    
      
October 28, 2003  Solar Flare  11:11 UT
 
http://www.spaceweather.com  (Select date: October 28, 2003)
 
EXTREME SOLAR ACTIVITY: One of the most powerful solar flares in years erupted from giant sunspot 486 this morning at approximately 1110 UT. The blast measured X17 on the Richter scale of solar flares. (It was the fouth-largest solar storm ever recorded and it was directed straight at Earth.)

http://www.msnbc.com/news/984388.asp?0cv=CB10 

The sun cut loose with three severe flares in less than 24 hours through Monday morning, bringing to nine the number of major eruptions in less than two weeks. Scientists have never witnessed a string of activity like this.
    
 

November 4, 2003 
 
http://www.spaceweather.com  (Select dates: November 4 and 6, 2003)
 
MEGA-FLARE:
Giant sunspot 486 unleashed yet another powerful solar flare today (Nov. 4th, 1950 UT), and this one could be historic. The blast saturated X-ray detectors onboard GOES satellites at X17.4 for 11 minutes. The last time such a thing happened in 2001 the flare was classified as an X20--the biggest ever. This one might be even bigger.
 
SUPERFLARE:
Astronomers won't soon forget Nov. 4th, 2003--the day of the biggest explosion ever recorded in our solar system. The blast originated from giant sunspot 486, and on the Richter scale of solar flares, it measured X28. [Note: It has since been determined to have possibly been an X45.]


UPDATE:
 A Definite Sign
 
On May 17, 2005 I made an amazing discovery concerning this solar flare. As reported in spaceweather.com on November 6, 2003 the time of Earth impact was November 6 at approximately 1930 UT. This is exactly 3333 days before December 21, 2012! Please view my post #260 in my Chapter 18-5 for the full report. (Also read my post #257.)
 
  
Note:  Sunspot Numbers
 
"In 1848 Rudolph Wolf devised a daily method of estimating solar activity by counting the number of individual spots and groups of spots on the face of the sun. Wolf chose to compute his sunspot number by adding 10 times the number of groups to the total count of individual spots, because neither quantity alone completely captured the level of activity. Today, Wolf sunspot counts continue, since no other index of the sun's activity reaches into the past as far and as continuously. An avid astronomical historian and an unrivaled expert on sunspot lore, Wolf confirmed the existence of a cycle in sunspot numbers. He also more accurately determined the cycle's length to be 11.1 years by using early historical records. Wolf, who became director of the Zurich Observatory, discovered independently the coincidence of the sunspot cycle with disturbances in the earth's magnetic field."

The total lunar eclipse of November 8/9, 2003 reveals a moment in time with echoes that are at least as provocative as the August, ’99 Solar Eclipse
(August 11, 1999 at 11:11 with a path 111 km wide) and potentially more potent than the "cosmic stampede" in Taurus in May of 2000 or of any of a host of other "important" dates projected for 2003.

Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance.
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
 
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance.
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,
Dance....I hope you dance.

    
 
   
20) Chapter 18
   
I began Chapter 18 as a 'Journal of Events' where I document events on a day-to-day basis that I believe are "signs" or relevant in some way. I have more or less discontinued adding "signs" to this Chapter 12 and have been documenting them in my Chapter 18 sections.
   
   



 
For as much as I have learned, I do not have all the answers. One thing that I have learned is that the "picture" is far too big for me to comprehend or even imagine. Each time I believed that I knew "the truth" the picture expanded and I realized that that wasn't the truth after all. After this happened a few times, I finally understood that I will probably never know the whole truth, but never to stop seeking it none-the-less, as it is an amazing journey/quest.

There are many questions that I have, and probably will never know the answers to, at least in this lifetime. There are many "Why?" questions that I have asked, some with a complaining even criticizing attitude, but as I realized that the picture is far too big for me to comprehend, I also learned that I should not criticize what I do not understand. Accept the fact that the picture - the truth - about who/what God is and what His purpose is - is beyond our comprehension. We do not know "His Mind." Accept it and have faith in Him and in His Plan.

All that I know is that I believe that it is the purpose of this paper to help bring "Peace on Earth." With the failure/delay of the "Wye Peace Accord," with King Hussein of Jordon's death in February of 1999, and especially with the recent war which raged in Yugoslavia, reminiscent of World War II with its ethnic cleansing and other cruelties and human atrocities, itself having had the real potential of becoming World War III, and once again the violence and bloodshed in the Middle East, I believe that I must share this information with the world very soon.


Another reason for my increasingly growing concern stems from another recent newspaper article. It is believed by many that highly technologically-advanced civilizations, similar to ours, existed previously in history - Atlantis being one. It is believed that power and greed ultimately resulted in their self-destruction. I wondered if we could suffer the same fate. I could see how atomic/nuclear bombs could cause mass destruction and devastation, but I wondered, "Do we have the technology to destroy our entire planet?"

Scientists worry accelerator might swallow up the earth (Excerpt)

By Jonathan Leake
The Sunday Times
Halifax Sunday Herald
July 18, 1999

A nuclear accelerator designed to replicate the Big Bang is under investigation by international physicists because of fears that it might cause "perturbations of the universe" that could destroy the earth. One theory even suggests that it could create a black hole... In space, black holes are believed to generate intense gravitational fields that suck in all surrounding matter. The creation of one on earth could be disastrous...

Brookhaven National Laboratories (BNL), one of the American government's foremost research bodies, has spent eight years building its Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) on Long Island in New York state. A successful test-firing was held on Friday and the first nuclear collisions will take place in the autumn, building up to full power around the time of the millennium.

Last week, however, John Marburger, Brookhaven's director, set up a committee of physicists to investigate whether the project could go disastrously wrong. It followed warnings by other physicists that there was a tiny but real risk that the machine, the most powerful of its kind in the world, had the power to create "strangelets" a new type of matter made up of sub-atomic particles called "strange quarks."

...

John Nelson, professor of nuclear physics at Birmingham University who is leading the British scientific team at RHIC, said the chances of an accident were infinitesimally small, but Brookhaven had a duty to assess them. "The big question is whether the planet will disappear in the twinkling of an eye. It is astonishingly unlikely that there is any risk, but I could not prove it," he said.


Apparently we do.



I can only hope that if this paper is as important as I believe it is, that I have done it justice, and that I have explained things well enough. I can only hope that I have done what I was "supposed" to do. I can only hope that I have written it right and that I present it right so that what is "supposed" to happen with it will happen.

Will it change your life? I don't know. I can only hope. That will be up to you to decide. Will it change the world? I don't know. Again, I can only hope. That, too, will be up to you to decide. I cannot force you to believe it. I can only try my best to convince you. I can only show you "The Way." Whether or not you choose to follow it is YOUR choice.
