Report From The Tower
Yesterday was a Sabbath: Shabbes Hazon, known from antiquity as "Sabbath of the Vision". It also carries another name: Black Sabbath. Bob has given some of the reasons for it being so named.
Exactly seven years ago, Bob Neumann was receiving and releasing the final installment on the Seven Thunders vision and revelation. It appears that we finished up our more than one month long discussion of the seven thunders yesterday, on that seven year anniversary. I had not been previously aware that all the times were coming into co-incidence until Friday, when I sought the Lord, and it became clear to me that God was bringing these seven thunders of His out, once again, on the seventh anniversary of their release in 1999.
I called Bob on Friday when the Holy Spirit brought this anniversary to my attention. I asked Bob: "what does it mean". Bob said: "It is a set time".
Bob pointed out near the end of the second program yesterday that the seven thunders were given to him by Jesus over a 14 month period. That reminds me of the 14 years that have passed since Hurricane Andrew, and the 7 years since the Thunders. Perhaps that is what God was speaking about at Maggie Valley at our recent meeting, when there were 14 present: 7 ARK members present and 7 families represented. We struggled to understand the veiled intent of the double sevens communication of the Lord during our meeting time in Maggie Valley.
There were other images we struggled to understand. Bob gave real, natural pearls to all the females in attendance. He informed us that at this time, genuine pearls are less expensive than counterfeit costume jewelry. We met in Maggie Valley, a derivation of the name Margaret, which has the meaning: "PEARL".
Today, we are poised on Sunday, Ab 5, and the news commentators are quoting the leaders of the world in their united outrage toward an Israel that has just killed dozens of women and children in Lebanon. More and more, Israel has fewer and fewer friends.
As we worked through our two hours of recording yesterday, I pondered on a national Israel that embarked on this risky business on Tammuz 17, at the commencement of a three week time of unparalleled summer distress that culminates in the 9th of Ab. During those three weeks, no marriages are performed for observant Jews, and no one cuts their hair. Observant Jews do not commence risky business during this 21 day time of mourning, yet that is just what Israel did this year.
So, here we sit on the Sunday before Tisha B'Av. 21 days mark the time from Tammuz 17 (July 13) to Ab 9 (August 2), which we reach on August 2 at sundown. 21 days from Ab 9 bring us to Ellul 1, which begins the 30 day period of Teshuvah (repentance). We have been prophetically warned to watch for the number 21.
Remember the dream of Rachel Bening, where she heard, repeatedly."Watchmen 21, Watchmen 21". We were last on highest alert during the 21st week of this year, which began on May 21 was ended with a terrible earthquake in Indonesia. Ellul 1 falls on August 24th, at sundown. That is another familiar day for me. Fourteen years ago, another July 13 date was very important to me, and it led to another August 24th.....
July 13, 1992----------------The Lord revealed a word to me: "the name of Andrew will be used to mark judgement in this generation".
August 24, 1992------------Hurricane Andrew strikes Homestead, FL.
Bob closed out the 7th thunder by musing that God had made things easy to follow on the calendar in 1999. Now, it appears that God has made things easy for me to follow in 2006. I know these dates. I have lived through these dates before: 14 YEARS AGO. God has my prophetic attention on His intentions. It appears that God is up to one of His favorite activities: re-enactment.
Something very big is coming down the pike. August 2/3 is one date to look at. August 24/25 is another. Beyond that loom the high holy days and tabernacles which brings us to around October 22. Then, we look out for November 7 for the Heshvan 17 anniversary. Like Bob, I do not have it figured out at all, but it seems to me that God is indeed whispering to any of the few of His people who still care that He is working things out according to His oldest calendar. Yes indeed ..9/11, and 11/9.
Anyone who is not already secreted away with the Lord needs to dive into the secret place of the Most High God for cover. It is long since past time to be hidden away. I do not believe the entirety of His indignation is yet overpast. In fact, it may only be the beginning.
One further little thought:
Perhaps the seven years of preparation time that we have been given since the release of the Seven Thunders on Ab 5, 1999 is like unto the seven days that Noah and his family were given to board the ARK.
For those of you who entered into the ARK in 1999, it seems like it has been a long time. Yet we know that very soon, the deluge will begin.
"Come my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain."
