Of Lions And Princes

All I will say with regard to ritual sacrifice is that indeed Prince died during the 13 day Blood Sacrifice to The Beast ritual. 13 connects us back to Cecil the Lion who died at 13 as well as the number in scripture for rebellion. This is the obvious stuff and quite frankly I’m bored of it. You can stare at the “whats” of the enemy each new day but it’s the same drivel. Celebrities die under questionable circumstances one after another. So there is clandestine evil in the world, what an unbelievable epiphany! Things are getting darker and people are more deceived than ever? What a surprise!

“It means,” said Aslan, “that though the Witch knew the Deep Magic, there is a magic deeper still which she did not know. Her knowledge goes back only to the dawn of Time. – Aslan, The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe.

The “truth movement” is on the right side of many things but when it comes to understanding prophecy there is much blindness. A common place of error is limiting God’s sovereignty, believing that somehow the return of Israel was not a fulfillment of prophecy because of the evil Zionists. Let me remind you the Evil Jews and Romans crucified Messiah as part of God’s plan. This nonsense goes on and on at every turn. Anyone who has tasted the grace of God in their own lives should understand that any good work ever produced from our existence is by His grace. He will weave the mistakes and evils of fallen men into His tapestry for His glory. There is no place for a feeling of superiority for any person who has tasted of the mercies of God.

Any rebellion within you that you have not surrendered to Him will result in far greater ramifications than your human mind can comprehend. For those who have accepted the free gift of grace, these consequences come in the form of missed opportunity beyond any earthly counterpart. We each have our cross to bear, and nobody understands what that is better than you and God. My hope is that you pick up that cross, lay aside the sin that so easily entangles and press forward so as not to give the accuser of the brethren additional ammunition.

There will be people reading into my words and I would like to admonish against this. Each post elicits inflammatory emails representing polar opposite ideologies. Inevitably, there will be some ignorant people who think I am either elevating or condemning Prince. I assure you, neither point of view exists here. He is who he was, God is judge. We are looking at the fingerprints of the Divine which coexist among any and all world events regardless of who the actors are.

3/3 Prince – 33 Prince of Peace Crucified

On 3/3 Prince sat court side in Oracle Arena to watch the Golden Gate Warriors play my Oklahoma City Thunder, 1 month and 18 days before his death. Prince died on the Queen’s 90th birthday.

3/3-4/21 = 49 days or 7 x 7

3/3 or 33 the age Jesus was crucified.

3 days and 3 nights in the grave.

Stephen Curry scored 33 points on 3/3 and missed 13 shots.

Prince died on the same day Jesus was crucified (Nisan 13).

Prince died at 57 on the day the Queen turned 90, 33 year age difference.

Prince was born on June 7th, 9 years (3 x 3) to the day that Israel soldiers would reenter Jerusalem making it the 44th and final time in history the city would change hands.

4/21 was Nisan 13. Though there is some disagreement over the exact day, many believe it was on this day. Either way, Prince died on the days argued for as the date of the crucifixion.

This serves as further evidence for those who have correctly pointed out on previous posts that the crucifixion was on a Wednesday. We know that He rose on the 17th, the number in the Bible for “complete victory”.

At JesusChrist.com (yup that’s the domain name) they believe the crucifixion was on Nisan 13.

Jesus’ body died at 3:00 p.m. Wednesday – likely on 13 Nissan. He raised His body back to life sometime after dusk on Saturday – on Sunday the 17th Nissan. On 14, 15 and 16 Nissan His body was dead, buried in a tomb – three days and three nights. http://www.jesuschrist.com

Walls Breached – The Last Trump Builder of Walls And The Jerusalem Wall

Prince wrote a song about Donald Trump.
Donald Trump (Black Version) 


Trump who announced his candidacy on the same day the Golden State Warriors won the championship, 10 days before gay marriage, proclaimed his desire to build a wall. The proclamation to build a wall preceded the prophetic wall breaching by 10 days. Prince also connects to Jerusalem as he told Van Jones to go to Jerusalem and pray for 2 weeks.

To understand this we need to look at the intricate details surrounding the Jerusalem Wall and how this directly connects to the Golden State Warriors.

Golden State Warriors have the Golden Gate as their emblem. The Golden Gate in the Jerusalem wall is understood in Jewish custom as the gate through which the Messiah will return. Stephen Curry is crowned MVP, in the Jerusalem wall there is a gate known as The Lion’s Gate which is also referred to as Stephen’s Gate for the first martyr of the gospel was killed at this location. The Lion’s Gate is also known as the Sheep Gate.

The Lion’s Gate = Stephen’s Gate = The Sheep Gate

The Golden Gate = sealed up by Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent to “keep the Jewish Messiah out” (Previously sealed by Saladin 1187).

Many have a difficult time with connecting sports and entertainment to prophetic events. This really should not be much of leap for anyone who believes in providence. If you believe God cares about the least of His creation you best understand He cares about that which enters the minds of hundreds of millions.

The Sheep Gate, Stephen’s Gate, the MVP. The last will be first and the first martyr saw The Lion of the Tribe of Judah who is seated at the right hand of God stand to honor the MVP in the kingdom of heaven.

And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Acts 7:56

If that doesn’t give you chills reread it.

Golden Gate = Messiah’s return

Stephen’s Gate = The Sheep Gate = enter through the narrow gate.

The Golden Gate, as it is called in Christian literature, is the oldest of the current gates in Jerusalem’s Old City Walls. According to Jewish tradition, the Shekhinah (Divine Presence) used to appear through this gate, and will appear again when the Messiah comes (Ezekiel 44:1-3) and a new gate replaces the present one; that is why Jews used to pray for mercy at the former gate at this location. Hence the name Sha’ar Harachamim the Gate of Mercy. http://www.crystalinks.com

(Sheep Gate) This is first gate mentioned. The spiritual meaning of the Sheep Gate is that the high priest was building it and that through the Sheep Gate lambs and sheep were brought to the temple, in which they were offered. The Lord and the Messiah (Christ) Jesus (Yeshua) is the High Priest of New Covenant, who is the Lamb, who was offered for the sake of our sins. Spiritual meaning of Sheep Gate is death and offering the Lamb (the Lord Jesus), which death, blood and resurrection bring us forgiveness of sins and redemption. The high priest was setting up the doors of the Sheep Gate, which means that He is the Door of the sheep. Through the Lord Jesus a man will be saved from the power of death-, sin and eternal damnation to eternal life. http://www.kotipetripaavola.com/

Prince on 3/3, 33 the age Jesus was crucified, 49 days or 7 sevens (1 month 18 days) before his death which fell on the possible date of the crucifixion on the Hebrew calendar, was at Oracle Arena. I believe this is an oracle for those with eyes to see of something far deeper. Is it a coincidence that “Prince” was at the Golden Gate watching the MVP Stephen on this day?

This is a type of shadow of the soon return of the Prince of Peace who will return through the Golden Gate at His second coming. Among those who are not left standing on this day some will go the way of Stephen whose name means crown, and the sheep who enter the narrow gate will have passage.

Prince stood in honor of Stephen Curry and arrived at the city of the Golden Gate. The Prince of Peace stood at the right hand of God where He was seated to honor Stephen the first martyr.

The Prince of Peace will return through the Golden Gate as The Lion of The Tribe of Judah for those who did not enter through the Lion’s Gate/Stephen’s Gate/Sheep Gate.

Though the walls have been breached prophetically speaking our God who has the hairs on our head numbered is speaking quite clearly.

He came to be regarded as a sex symbol for his androgynous, amorphous sexuality, play with signifiers of gender, and defiance of racial stereotypes. His “audacious, idiosyncratic” fashion sense made use of “ubiquitous purple, alluring makeup and frilled garments.” His androgynous look has been compared to that of Little Richard and David Bowie. He has also been noted for the strong female presence in his bands and his support for women in the music industry throughout his career. https://en.wikipedia.org

“What If” – Prince and Nichole Nordeman?

According to Prince’s biographer he was so moved when Nichole Nordeman’s song “What If” came on the radio he decided to record a cover.

Here is Nichole Nordeman’s original song

What if you’re right?
And he was just another nice guy
What if you’re right?
What if it’s true?
They say the cross will only make a fool of you
And what if it’s true?

What if he takes his place in history
With all the prophets and the kings
Who taught us love and came in peace
But then the story ends
What then?

But what if you’re wrong?
What if there’s more?
What if there’s hope you never dreamed of hoping for?
What if you jump?
And just close your eyes?
What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise?
What if He’s more than enough?
What if it’s love?

What if you dig
Way down deeper than your simple-minded friends
What if you dig?
What if you find
A thousand more unanswered questions down inside
That’s all you find?

What if you pick apart the logic
And begin to poke the holes
What if the crown of thorns is no more
Than folklore that must be told and retold?

You’ve been running as fast as you can
You’ve been looking for a place you can land for so long
But what if you’re wrong?

“What is Jerusalem worth? It is nothing….everything” to quote Saladin from Kingdom of Heaven. Saladin, not coincidentally was the first to seal the Golden Gate in 1187.

What if you’re wrong? This song has a hint of Pascal’s wager, in my opinion an overrated philosophical argument but well known nonetheless.

prince discover god

It is nothing but it is everything. I would say you discover God, you discover yourself. Better yet, God reveals Himself and shows you who you really are. True self discovery comes through revelation from the One who created you.

People live their lives in one of two camps. You are either elevating yourself to become as God or you are growing in your knowledge of God and living in the paradox of realizing you are nothing while simultaneously destined to reign with Him.

“I am weary of the answers. More theory and cliche. They raise the letter of the law like a banner. ‘Till your small and far away. All the questions in my head, are from my heart instead. Be real to me now” – Nicole Nordeman, Real to Me.

On that day when He wipes the tears they will realize what could have been.

“Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.” John Greenleaf Whittier


What if you stopped trying to earn your salvation and began walking in the position given to you by His grace. What if you put on the armor of God and did not allow the accuser of the brethren to burden you with condemnation. What if you realized that you were saved and now you can get to work doing that which you were created for. What if you went about each day knowing that your steps were ordered by Him and not one thing in your life escapes His notice. What if you stopped looking at God as an angry taskmaster who always wanted to punish you but as a loving Father who sees His Son and wants you to stop shooting yourself in the foot.

What if we saw ourselves through His truth, the way He sees us. What if we saw our lives through the lens of eternity. We are so high minded in our perspective of worldly things and so small minded in our perspective of the eternal.

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15

What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 1 Corinthians 2:12

This matter arose because some false believers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and to make us slaves. Galatians 2:4

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

Not surprisingly another song titled “What If” has to do with the “Great Prince”.

Big Picture Eschatology

I am grateful for a friend I met through this site who mailed me Signs In The Heavens And On The Earth by Douglas Krieger. For those who appreciate the numerical patterns in God’s word I highly recommend it.


Douglas Krieger points out 1981 years from “Messiah The Prince” in 33 AD to 2014 (the date of his book). Which interestingly gives us “1984” for 2017 and the Revelation 12 sign. For those who understand the layered meanings of types and shadows manifested in societal constructs.

“The Coming Prince” by Sir Robert Anderson is a solid exposition of Daniel’s 70th week. Many get up in arms about some supposed errors in his calculations but it is helpful to understand we see through a glass dimly. For me, when I see outrage over an individual’s work it lends credence to there being much truth therein.

In Daniel 12, Michael is referred to as the great prince in one of the single most all-encompassing prophetic chapters in scripture. The words were sealed for Daniel and for those on the earth in that time any concept of internet or spanning the globe within hours was inconceivable. We are in that time, where what was once sealed is being unsealed before our eyes.

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12:4

We have covered previously that on the 6,000th day of creation The King of Glory will take His throne during the Millennial Kingdom. For the 7th day or 1,000 year Sabbath.

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 2 Peter 3:8

6 days of creation 1 day of rest. 6,000 years of creation 1,000 of rest.
Tracing the Biblical genealogies Adam is anywhere from 3970 -3980 BC. Equally compelling is Abraham was 1948 from Adam. If Isaac was 12 when he was taken to Moriah (type and shadow of the ultimate sacrifice) that would place us 1948 years from 33 AD. Israel returned as a nation in 1948. 19 years later Jerusalem would be recaptured and 48 years later placed in 2015 where the blood moon tetrad which occurred only 7 times since Christ landed on Jewish Feast Days. 1948 years from the Temple destruction in 70 AD is 2018.

Krieger points out 12 groupings of 490 years connecting prophetically significant events throughout history. 12 is the number in scripture for God’s divine government order. Interestingly, when you take 12 x 490 you have 5,880. This gives 120 years to reach 6,000.

As covered repeatedly 120 years is a divinely appointed period of time. From the first Zionist Congress in 1897 to the 2017 Revelation 12 sign is 120 years.

The number 120 can symbolize a divinely appointed time of waiting. After God saw how sinful and dedicated to evil man had become after the garden of Eden, he determined a one hundred and twenty year period would be given for repentance and then the flood waters would come (Genesis 6:1 – 3). http://www.biblestudy.org

And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Genesis 6:3

Many have taken this verse to mean men will not live past 120 years. This is not an accurate interpretation as many lived past 120 years after the flood. Over time this would come to be true but this is the secondary application, the type of shadow of the literal meaning. 120 years was the countdown to the flood but also a larger prophetic statement about the length of world history. 120 years was also referring to prophetic Jubilee years and God’s Spirit indwelling humanity.

7×7 or 49, is the number of days from Prince at Oracle with Stephen on 3/3 to the day of his death.

As the days of Noah so it will be in the coming of the Son of Man. It is not coincidence that Noah was 600 when he entered the ark. A type and shadow of the 6,000 years and the days of Noah. The rainbows everywhere connecting us to the days of Noah is an additional symbolic billboard.

A Jubilee is 7 x 7 or 49 years with the 50th a Jubilee year. We see the symmetry to a Sabbath week as well as 6,000 years with 1,000 year Sabbath. A 490 year prophetic cycle repeats 12 (God’s divine government) times in history landing us 120 years short of a complete 6,000.


50 Jubilees from Creation to The Exodus. 70 Jubilees from The Exodus to the present day. In total 120 Jubilees from our present Jubilee cycle puts us at Creation. Despite everyone quibbling over the exact Jubilee year, whether it was last year or next year, this does not matter for our purposes we are looking big picture.


For the believers who think a belief of 6,000 years of creation is Christian ignorance there is a simple explanation which involves thinking outside the box. Time is linear and it is physical. It did not exist until day 4 of creation. In other words, the first 3 days could have been hundreds of billions of years by our ability to date rocks for it was still outside of time.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years: and let them be for lights in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. Genesis 1:14-19

The clock began about 6,000 years ago according to Biblical genealogies. For Krieger and many others, the 6,000th year falls on 2025AD.

Additional Lion Synchronicity

The Bible describes Satan as a roaring lion as well as The Lion of The Tribe of Judah. Though distinct differences they do not conflict. For when Jesus returns as The Lion of The Tribe of Judah it will be at the apex of Satan’s roaring.

Lion solar flare on sun 6/25/15. 1 day before gay marriage on 6/26 fell on Tammuz 9 on Hebrew calendar. Tammuz 9 is known as the day the walls were breached in Jewish history. The last time June 26 fell on Tammuz 9 was 1996. The solar flare roaring lion can be seen around the 12 minute mark in this video. https://www.youtube.com


Cecil the Lion dies on July 1, 5 days after gay marriage. Note the connection with pride. Gay pride, and the lion is the only animal who is part of a group known as a “pride”. Headlines pour in about Jericho, many believed to be Cecil’s brother, also was killed. These reports were untrue but for a week Jericho dominated the headlines. The walls came down.

Cecil means blind – masc. proper name, from Latin Caecilius (fem. Caecilia), name of a Roman gens, from caecus “blind.”

And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. Luke 17:26

On August 8th the Lion’s Gate portal will peak, letting us reflect on our past and what we want to manifest in our future. Each year on August 8th we enter into what is called the Lion’s Gate. This term refers to the significance of the number eight and the astrological sign Leo, which is represented by the lion. This year we have a extra special Lion’s Gate—the 888 portal. The first number eight stands for the month of August, being the 8th month. The second eight is the day and the third is the year. In numerology we add up the single digits of complex numbers until we get to a single digit number—in this case 2 + 0 + 1 + 5 = 8. This portal opens between the 26th of July and 12th of August, while the sun is in the astrological sign of Leo—the lion. http://www.elephantjournal.com

2 Day Dow Drop 888 – 8/20-8/21 – At the time it was the largest 2 day drop in history. 888+888 = 1776. The largest single day drop was 777 points on 9/29/2008 the 29th of Elul on Hebrew calendar. This is the last day of Elul and Elul means “harvest”. 

And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. Revelation 14:15

In the Jewish tradition, the month of Elul is a time of repentance in preparation for the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The word “Elul” is similar to the root of the verb “search” in Aramaic. The Talmud writes that the Hebrew word “Elul” can be expanded as an acronym for “Ani L’dodi V’dodi Li” – “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” (Song of Solomon 6:3). Elul is seen as a time to search one’s heart and draw close to God in preparation for the coming Day of Judgement, Rosh Hashanah, and Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elul

It is not a coincidence that Prince, the man clothed in the color of royalty died 1 month and 18 days (49 days – 7×7) after his 3/3 honoring of Stephen Curry at the Golden Gate. The stuff we have been looking at in the last year is telling a story. A story which points back to God’s word and His promises at every turn. If we are able to step outside our comfortable mold, where world events are something to fear or cram into a tidy box, there is much to see.

Understanding deeper Biblical truths require spiritual eyes, just as discerning prophetic parallels in current events. There is a reason some seminary professors with an intellectual understanding of the Bible are blind as bats when it comes to the deeper truths. This is the same reason Jesus spoke in parables.

Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. Matthew 13:13

Again, found in Matthew 13:13, 13 the age of Cecil whose name means “blind”. This is not a coincidence people. 13 the number for rebellion, we are blinded in our rebellion.

The symbolism, types and shadows far exceeds anything covered here. People ask me “so does everything that happens revolve around America”. NO! I live here and so this is what I focus on. Why don’t you Russians or Hungarians start looking into this stuff.

Stephen, the first martyr was bestowed the greatest honor any human could have. The King of Kings who spoke all life into existence stood up next to throne of God to honor this man. Though everything seems to be progressing along as it was in the time of our ancestors, we are fast approaching the time when The Lion of Judah is returning. There is Stephen’s Gate/Lion’s Gate/Sheep Gate and The Golden Gate. Either gate is fine with me.

And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 2 Peter 3:4

    Thank you for this powerful article. The words above were confirmation of what I hear in my spirit. Too many focus on the temporal. Our focus MUST be on the eternal. We MUST keep an eternal perspective.

    Thanks I enjoyed.

  8. M P , this is a gift to read so very well done! As just noted in the first comment on your writing this piece, what if we could see ourselves as how our Father sees us and the absolute awe of it. The song ” Good Father ” resonates this amazing grace in it’s words being digested around the globe which is reflected in the version of it in Australia and the version being played here…. it brings joy to get a glimpse of the perfect order of God in control of every detail of all things and that His great love for us is who we are but more to grasp it is who He is. It all comes down to we either believe Him or we don’t. A believers struggle is the pressing in to bask in this understanding ( abide ) and one that I find takes me deeper but can be elusive in my thought life unless soaked in the Word, and pressing in for the hope of it. Derek Prince once said that he came to understand that when putting on the covering for spiritual battle that the helmet of salvation was hope. It is that glorious hope that we have a relationship with the Creator of all things who sings over us. Somedays , I am better at living this and being bold in it and other days it is moment by moment to hold fast to the promise of His word and remembering just how the spiritual is more real than the natural.
    2 Corinthians 10:3
    [d]Nevertheless, though we walk in the flesh, yet we do not war after the flesh.
    4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not [e]carnal, but mighty through [f]God, to cast down holds.)
    5 Casting down the imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, [g]and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”
    Thank you so much for illuminating all of this so eloquently. You help me learn 🙂
    Blessings to you.

  9. Indeed, America is in a trance, and maybe it takes a Prince’s death to further awaken the masses who are still asleep to the evil manifesting itself with Baal, ISIS, etc…

    I always regarded Prince as a Christian despite his raunchy earlier performances, he had to get on the stage somehow! The man wrote a lot of great songs besides his mainstream hits, he even made a whole album for the soundtrack to the 1989 Batman film directed by Tim Burton! I always liked his song Sign of the Times…it was an anthem to black youth to stand down from evil gang memberships and stop killing each other in drive-by shootings! A real artist, unlike the trash that passes as “music” today with the race-baiting agenda we now see with turds like Kanye West and Beyonce!

    Perhaps the Prince song, 7, can give us some perspective on who he was and what he believed…I always thought this to be his defining song as a Jehova’s Witness!


    All 7 and we’ll watch them fall
    They stand in the way of love
    And we will smoke them all
    With an intellect and a savior-faire
    No one in the whole universe
    Will ever compare

    I am yours now and you are mine
    And together we’ll love through
    All space and time, so don’t cry
    One day all 7 will die

    All 7 and we’ll watch them fall
    They stand in the way of love
    And we will smoke them all
    With an intellect and a savoir-faire
    No one in the whole universe
    Will ever compare

    I am yours now and you are mine
    And together we’ll love through
    All space and time, so don’t cry
    One day all 7 will die

    And I saw an angel come down unto me
    In her hand she holds the very key
    Words of compassion, words of peace
    And in the distance an army’s marching feet (1 2 3 4, 1 2 3 4)
    But behold, we will watch them fall

    And we lay down on the sand of the sea
    And before us animosity will stand and decree
    That we speak not of love only blasphemy
    And in the distance, 6 others will curse me
    But that’s alright (That’s alright)
    4 I will watch them fall (1 2 3 4 5 6 7)

    All 7 and we’ll watch them fall
    They stand in the way of love
    And we will smoke them all
    With an intellect and a savoir-faire
    No one in the whole universe
    Will ever compare

    I am yours now and you are mine
    And together we’ll love through
    All space and time, so don’t cry
    One day all 7 will die

    (Just how old)

    And we will see a plague and a river of blood
    And every evil soul will surely die in spite of
    Their 7 tears, but do not fear
    4 in the distance, 12 souls from now
    You and me will still be here – we will still be here

    There will be a new city with streets of gold
    The young so educated they never grow old
    And a, there will be no death 4 with every breath
    The voice of many colors sings a song
    That’s so bold
    Sing it while we watch them fall

    All 7 and we’ll watch them fall
    They stand in the way of love
    And we will smoke them all
    With an intellect and a savoir-faire
    No one in the whole universe
    Will ever compare

    I am yours now and you are mine
    And together we’ll love through
    All space and time, so don’t cry
    One day all 7 will die

    (Just how old) [Repeat: x3]

    Fascinating that he wrote a song about Donald Trump back in the day…really makes the hair on my arm stand straight up! It doesn’t take a Vulcan like Mr. Spock to see where all of these coincidences are leading us as the fabric of space and time will continue to be ripped away!

    I would like to think the fourth and fifth paragraphs were written especially for me! In truth, they are more like the pebble tossed into a still pond, and I was touched by one of the ‘ripples’. Either way, they pulled me back from the brink once again; as have several of your articles.
    Have you ever read “Temple at the Center of Time”, by David Flynn? The way that I came across this Christian genius, is nothing short of a miracle in my mind. The book also deals with the mathematical evidence of God’s infinite wisdom (Sir Isaac Newton).
    I struggle greatly with my own rebellious spirit, and haven’t ever been able to hold onto a job for more than 3 or 4 yrs. (My wife is solid as a rock, born on 8-8-58). If you would please pray for me it would be much appreciated. I live in a small town along the I35 ks. and okla. border, and the town is THICK with the spirit of freemasonry, and the darkness that comes with it.
    annuit coeptis novus ordo seclorum- the one who approves of, or gives a nod to, the new order of the ages is Lucifer! But JESUS CHRIST is KING !!

      I was told by many through this site that I need to read Temple at the Center of Time and I’m about halfway.
      It’s probably one of the most fascinating books I’ve read. Send me an email mp@dailycrow.com

    • Sabine,
      I was good friends with Sue Bradley ( miss her much ) and just wanted to share that with you and know she is enjoying in splendor of Heaven all we are trying to understand. She would have had lots to share and enjoyed you Matt.
      God bless

      • Dear Carla,
        Thank you. She was like a spiritual mother to me. I miss her dearly as well. She was praised within her gates and won her race with grace and style. Bet she’s all ready with tea and homemade lovelies when we get up there. She would get that done in a twinkling no sweat. I hope soon and very soon. I’m weary.
        Love and blessings,

        Carla, I have read some stuff she wrote and understand she used her giftings and place in the body to uplift many.
        In your previous comment you mentioned DP, since his death has impacted my life more than any person who presently walks the earth.
        The helmet of our salvation is our hope, as the fiery darts increase while we await our Blessed Hope. There has been far too much trampling of hope in the body. People haven’t been putting on their armor!
        God bless

    Hi Matt,
    You mentioned 1948 as a significant date and we can also look at this as a type of “1984” by reversing the last 2 numbers. Might give some interesting insight/possibilities…?

    Part of the symbol that Prince uses looks like a horn or trumpet! Hard to explain w/o posting the symbol, but its the portion that is perpendicular to the arrow pointing down–once you see it you can’t miss it (The arrow on the symbol points straight down which I find revealing).

    There has been a theme of trumpets or horns in the news lately, my point is that we are headed towards something about those Judgments in Revelation 8 and so I think we are seeing them start to manifest (my personal thought on this is that 2017 is a significant year in context of Trumpet Judgments…)

    Here are a couple articles along these lines:
    1. “Hornblower crashes into downtown pier” …DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO — A Hornblower whale-watching ship rammed into the Embarcadero Thursday afternoon, injuring passengers, damaging the hull and buckling a portion of the well-traveled brick walkway. The crew of the Adventure Hornblower reported a mechanical malfunction that caused the throttle to become stuck in the forward position, San Diego Fire-Rescue Battalion Chief David Gerboth said. The crew, coming in to dock along North Harbor Drive near Broadway, (TIMES SQUARE!) could not stop the boat to prevent the crash, which occurred about 12:50 p.m.”


    2. “The prom gunman: Jilted ex-student arrives outside his school dance with a rifle and opens fire on couple before being killed by cops”
    Here is a pic of the gunman who was killed–he was a “Hornblower”. …Trumpet. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/04/24/19/3380261700000578-3556019-image-a-53_1461521640833.jpg

    ….and here is the entire article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3556019/Prom-shooting-Wisconsin-leaves-3-people-injured.html

    There will not be a literal “building” (temple) rebuilt in Jerusalem. When God speaks of “temple”, He is referring to our body!

  13. J.


    This is a fascinating article that you obviously put a lot of effort into, but you said, “Prince died on the same day Jesus was crucified.”

    There is no consensus regarding the exact date of the crucifixion of Jesus, although it is generally agreed by biblical scholars that it was on a Friday on or near Passover (Nisan 15), during the governorship of Pontius Pilate (who ruled AD 26–36). Scholars have provided estimates for the year of crucifixion in the range 30–33 AD, with the majority of modern scholars favouring the date April 7, 30 AD. Another popular date is Friday, April 3, 33 AD.

    Neither April 7 or April 3 is April 21, the day Prince died.

    Furthermore, if you are a Bible-believing Christian, then why are you attempting to set dates? At least six passages (eight if parallel passages are included) specifically warn believers against date-setting.

    Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. Mark 13:32 is an exact parallel.

    Matthew 24:42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.

    Matthew 24:44 “For this reason you be ready too; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

    Matthew 25:13 “Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour. Mark 13:33-37 is a parallel passage.

    Acts 1:7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;

    1 Thessalonians 5:1-2 Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.

    These passages are absolute prohibitions against date-setting. They do not teach that it was impossible to know the date in the early church, but in the last days some would come to know it. They do not say that no one knows the day or the hour, except those who are able to figure it out through some scheme. No! The date of Christ’s coming is a matter of God’s revelation and He has chosen not to reveal it even to Christ in His humanity during His first advent (Mt. 24:36).

    The Bible teaches that God’s Word is sufficient for everything needed to live a life pleasing unto Christ (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:3-4). This means that if something is not revealed for us in the Bible then it is not needed to accomplish God’s plan for our lives. The date of Christ’s return is not stated in the Bible, therefore, in spite of what some may say, knowing it is not important for living a godly life. The Lord told Israel “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law” (Deut. 29:29). The date of Christ’s coming has not been revealed, thus it is a secret belonging only to God.

    Blessings to you,

      I question if you read the whole thing. It appears you are missing the comments made around the crucifixion as well as reading into it things that aren’t there.

      1. Nisan 13 or Nisan 14 are the dates of crucifixion. I made it clear there is not a consensus but forth the reasons I arrived there. What if it was simply within 1 day? Is that still not compelling? April 21 was Nisan 13, the Eve of Passover.
      2. What dates did I set? Those verses you mentioned don’t prohibit date setting. Consider the audience/context.

  14. Mikhael

    Hello Matt,
    Here is the 2017 schedule for the Seven Trumpet Judgments described in Revelation 8-10…

    -Jan 2nd — First trumpet.
    -Jan 7/8th– Second Trumpet.
    -Jan 15th–3rd Trumpet.
    -Sometime between 1-16-17 and 3-28-17 is the 4th Trumpet.
    -March 29th–5th Trumpet.
    -April 22nd–6th trumpet.
    -3 days of Darkness from 4-27-17 to 4-29-17.
    -Not sure about the 7th trumpet, but I suspect its around September 23rd or maybe around 10-11-17…

    Mikhael G.
    P.S. I’m not joking…

    • MP

      Mikhael, I have to believe you are joking.
      Even if you aren’t I am laughing, as it comes at the exact time as J’s comment lecturing me about date setting.
      Then here comes the most blatant date setting diatribe I’ve ever seen.
      What are we talking about here?

      • Mikhael

        Ya Matt! I saw J’s post lecturing you about the one thing you are always clear and careful to stress that YOU NEVER DO (set dates that is) …that’s why I made my comment. 🙂

        I’m Not trying to be contentious towards ‘J’ in any way, I just found it so Ironic that this really is the one thing you say you don’t do and then someone tells you not to do that!

        Are the dates for real? Well, I suppose we will just have to wait and see right? I mean is there anything I could say or write that would convince anyone as to the validity of such an outlandish date setting diatribe?? Even if I wrote a 550 pg book about all the “evidence” that points to the aforementioned days it would be no more than lot’s of really really interesting “matrix facts” if you will (the days are based on some pretty deep stuff). Without the validity/confirmation from the Life Giving Holy Spirit of God its all just, well, interesting facts about specific days …something that we have all seen many times–too many times in context of judgement if you ask me.

        Personally, I would hold on to the dates and see what happens, but I guess I am biased about that opinion since I wrote it! 🙂 Perhaps the Lord will give us a sign in context of my date setting diatribe. He might even give a sign that I don’t know what I am talking about 🙂 …but you never know, they could be correct?
        Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets………..

        • MP


          Your date setting diatribe (DSD), was the most dates ever thrown out by one individual in the body without supporting reasons since the dawn of the church age. Word for word, “2017 trumpet schedule” seriously the most ridiculous sounding comment so far. I know you are very insightful and have reasons for how you arrived at this but its shock value/ridiculous delivery is certain to blow many a gasket.

          People need to discern scripture instead of looking at everything as a black and white checklist. Clearly divination is wrong, certain secret things belong to the Lord, He promises to reveal to us deep and hidden things, and Amos as you cited. It is His glory to conceal and reveal in His timing. All of these truths exist together.

          Our tidy box of easy to understand doctrine on one end and prediction central on the other. Too many give their brains more credit than they should and ignore their spirit. Spirit is not some ethereal new age concept but rather a Biblical truth confirmed by a personal and all knowing loving Father. It happens to be far more “real” their depraved minds which must be renewed constantly so as not to interfere/squelch our spirit.

  15. I’ve never heard a Prince song. Only thought of him as some kind of weirdo changing his name all the time; even to an unpronounceable symbol. My wife told me the other day that the buzz was that Prince died, and I didn’t even see anything about it online; I do my blog, check my e-mail, there may be a reminder for free-gal, not much else. I just briefly had a strange thought about a rock icon dying that night while I was at work. Keith Emerson of ELP died recently; he was older, no hoopla about that. So did Chris Squire of Yes, again he was older, and neither are well known except to people like me. Certainly not icons. The name that I thought of was Elton John. Don’t know why.

    I really liked the post. There is really no way to conceal the truth when it is right in your face, is there? But in fact there is. That’s what I’ve been reading and writing about lately. Many, if not most in the world are kept in the dark by God. It is talked about many, many times in the bible; bot the Old and the New Testament. Over, and over again. Romans 11 is what I’m writing on, and I think it is probably something that demon-nations argue over. What is there to argue about? God gives His Spirit of revelation to those who humble themselves, and seek Him. He allows those who won’t to be satisfied with their delusions, and blinds them to the truth; even if it is right in their face. What we have today is no different from where Israel and Judah were in the time of Isaiah:
    Isaiah 29:9-12 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)
    9 ¶ Become ye dumb, and make others dumb; become ye blind, and blind others: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
    10 For the LORD has extended upon you the spirit of deep sleep and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, he has covered the seers with sleep.
    11 And every vision is unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which if it were delivered to one that knows how to read, saying, Read this, I pray thee: he shall say, I cannot; for it is sealed:
    12 And if the book were delivered to him that does not know how to read, saying, Read this, I pray thee: he shall say, I do not know how to read.

    Everyone has an excuse.
    “It’s not my job.”
    “That’s what my preacher told me.”
    “Things aren’t bad enough for the end of the world.”
    “Don’t worry, we will change the world.” (Yes, we can? I hate that slogan)

    It is a spirit of delusion. Most people I see are so engrossed in their phones that they wouldn’t know if aliens came down from space and started tearing things up, unless a friend posted it on Facebook. Only then would they look up and see the aliens were right across the street. Everyone feels like they have to be in touch constantly; they are that important. All they get on their phones is what the world is dishing out. The delusions.

    I read Of Lions and Princes, and see truth, and patterns, and confirmation. Like Gideon and the fleece; when things keep coming up the same way, it is not coincidence. When others read it, they will only find things that disturb their way of thinking, and will toss it aside, or make some snide remark.

    • MP

      Ken, I always appreciate your stream of consciousness reflections. You cover a lot of ground while remaining concise.
      This sums it up “What is there to argue about? God gives His Spirit of revelation to those who humble themselves, and seek Him.”
      I think the reaction to aliens would be “cool wassup, can I film you for my youtube channel”. Within a few months there would be heated debates on MSM news channel about alien equality, and whether pedophilia should be legalized to embrace their cultural practices.

      As for the coincidence stuff, the evidence has been mounting in such a way for those with eyes to see that you cannot explain it away. For the skeptic it has become far more difficult to explain away then to accept the reality. What will be next? Who knows, but it will be something. I don’t have to figure anything out it’s already there when it happens. Since you have been following for a while Ken, I’m sure you realize how each new synchronicity is stacking upon previous ones.

    My Brother MP

    Cheer, I was led to your website one or two months ago, I did not know until God wanted me to get know you, I am moved by your writing, I recogzined that it is moving of Holy Spirit with His Gift of Insight and Understanding what He shows and leads you in your website. Be bear with me, my english is not perfect because I am deaf…

    This morning, God spoke me to go out to Cafe I thought I would needed to get away from my home (have no TV), I was drinking coffee while reading your message in above. When I finished reading it, about an hour later I was looked up toward Flat TV at Cafe, I was impressed to watch News with sport announcement about Stephen Curry’s falling down with injuried knee. That was him what you wrote about… Here is Article about his knee:


    I remember the words you wrote about him with his outspoken christian, I asked God about what He wanted me to know… He said “Hypocrites” I did not understand clearly what He showed me about… He got me recalling with scripture I was in middle of Godly Newsletter just moment before I looked up to TV news:

    Mathew 25:35-40

    I began to understand clearly why God heard what Steph said he was said he was outspoke his faith, yet He saw his heart what he did to Him before people (in Matthew 25:40) that He called him “Hypocrites” that he read and heard His Words, but not doing it….

    I understand clearly that Steph represented as USA Christians who professed their faiths in God, yet are not doing it, ending up falling apart…. Steph’s injuried he fell down, it is the same with America will fall down.

    Can you clarify what I wrote about?

    Bless you with my all heart in Him…

    Agape, Andrew

  18. Andy

    Great article. As soon as I heard Prince died I thought of this site and wondered what would be revealed. Just one question about the date of Jesus death. Does the date of 13 Nisan “fit” with the idea of Jesus being sacrificed on Passover and more broadly with the idea of the events of Jesus first coming fulfilling the Spring feasts? Thanks as always for your work.


    • MP

      Thanks Andy, it does fit. The crucifixion date issue comes down to a few day window of Nisan 13-15. I added some clarification so it doesn’t serve as a sticking point for people. The point is, among all the other patterns connected to this the fact a world renown individual names Prince would die within the few day window of what we know to be the crucifixion. Along with his rare public appearance to stand in honor of Stephen at the Golden Gate on the age of Jesus (3/3- 33) – a jubilee of days 7 x 7 – 49 from his death is astonishing. It’s one thing after another, the time for believing in coincidence needs to end for every lover of truth.

      • Andy

        Good points Matt. Regardless of the exact day of the crucifixion (and I’m not yet clear on that issue I admit), the totality of the patterns revealed to and described by you is astounding and obviously orchestration of a high and complex degree. Surely it is a foreshadowing of approaching things to come. Surely we must be in the season. You mentioned the 6000 year theory and the approximate year 2025. Do you see the rapture as occurring years prior to that and close to the 2017 sign or do you have an opinion on that? (the timing of the rapture in relation to the tribulation is another issue I am really uncertain about.)

        • andy

          I agree there is a story being told with these patterns. I’m just wondering if you see anything as specific as a rapture of believers prior to and/or apart from the second coming as part of the story we are getting. In other words how does the story revealed so far in these patterns in modern events line up with the popular notions of a pre, mid, or post tribulation rapture view. It is obviously perfect whatever is or isn’t revealed. God knows what he is doing. And to me it would actually be consistent with scripture if this subject remained a bit vague. That is unless I’m wrong about it being vague and the adherents of one or the other of the rapture theories is right. Because they each are pretty sure they are correct.

          • MP

            When we see Stephen’s Gate/Lion’s Gate/Sheep Gate and Golden Gate we see martyr’s, narrow gate, sheep gate and 2nd coming (not rapture, distinct events). When you have one gate in the Jerusalem wall that is referred to as 3 distinct things. The sheep hear the Shepherd’s voice, the Lion (Bridegroom) will take the wise virgins, the ones who have kept the narrow sheep path. We know this to be 5 out of 10. Remember, all virgins not virgins and harlots. Half of professing Christians will not be raptured. The one’s who are left behind will go the way of Stephen. I don’t even like to talk about pre, mid, post. These are deceptive. The Bible is absolutely clear there is a catching away, where the dead in Christ and those who are alive are caught up. This is not the same event as Jesus coming down on Olives. We are to “watch and pray” be found worthy to escape. Paul says after the rapture verse “comfort each other with these words”. People who deny the catching away are actively looking for the AC. Based on this false understanding they are deliberately not watching for their Blessed Hope b/c according to them He cannot appear until after the AC reigns.

      • Paul Moyer

        Your article quotes: “Prince took a stand for his renewed Christian faith when he visited NBA star Steph Curry, a fellow outspoken Christian, at a recent basketball game. Although Prince was loyal to professional sports teams from his home state of Minnesota, he went out of his way to see Steph Curry in action at a Golden State Warriors game in Oakland. http://qpolitical.com/prince/

        My point is he was not a Christian, but a member of a Cult that is Satanically deceived.
        You also post this: http://i1.wp.com/www.dailycrow.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/prince-discover-god.jpg?zoom=2&resize=592%2C592
        Which I see as him reflecting that he discovered god, and it was himself. A lie from the serpent that is recorded in Genesis 3:5.

        I’m not picking on you, but there has been a lot of deception since his death that Prince was a borne again bible believing Christian.

        • MP

          I agree JW’s are a cult. The quote was primarily to indicate that he “went out of his way”, I wanted to be very clear on the outset that I wasn’t making this about a salvation issue. You are correct that the quote on the photo is the same subtle twisting that seems like nothing but is everything, the serpent lie that pulls at all flesh. I was very intentional with every word I wrote so as to not elevate or condemn. In the same way that many begin fawning over celebrities as disciples upon death, there are just as many believers who are seemingly enthusiastic about them perishing. I’m not saying you are in this camp, nor do I believe you are picking on me.

          • Paul Moyer

            I’m not happy about his death , just the opposite I see it as the same sad tale told over and over. Sadly, most “celebrities” love of money leads them to these cults like JW and Scientology as these are basically the repackaged lies from the very beginning actually believing they will be as gods and have much worldly treasure.

            I simply posted for the clarification, as those that only know what the MSM tells them will believe he was “Christian” and represented “Christian values and beliefs” or even worse believing JW is just another “Christian” denomination ; never seeking or discerning the truth.

    It’s never to late, maybe like the thief on the cross the Prince became a king of the King just in time! I guess one day we will see. Usually when I’m being obedient in a very small matter I forget that God sees the BIGGER PICTURE and I was blessed to be a part of His story. The smaller I become the BIGGER I SEE GOD IS! And it amazes me that He is using me! One of my favorite words from Him is this ” I don’t need to use you, I want to make you useful, and in the process I use you.” Hope against hope is a beautiful thing! I used to want to be an actor and famous and be on the big screen! I am so thankful that Our Father showed me that vision was to small, life truly is a stage and I’m learning more and more to live out my part knowing HE SEES ME and that is enough! Well and all those reading this comment! Ha! Jesus may you be glorified! Oh and I was never a huge Prince fan, but “when doves cry” was one of the songs I used to karaoke to! He was (57) maybe He found grace and completeness just in time!

    Biblical Numerical Correlations & Parallels: The Constellation of Leo:
    “Leo” in Jewish Gematria Equals 75
    75 – Revelation 5.5 = 69.5 (Reverse Formula)
    5 x 9 = 45
    45 + (6) = Psalm 45:6 (Cross Reference Passages: Hebrews 1:8, Luke 24:44)
    Another great article Matt.

  21. Thanks for another great commentary. I’ve been almost completely “deculturized” having quit watching tv, listening to top-40, and going to movies around 1980, a few years after my coming to Christ. So it’s fascinating to read about what’s been happening in the intervening 35 or so years in our culture. And how it points to what’s coming, despite the world’s opposition. Ha!

  22. Another great word. Thank you for investing the time, prayer and posting for the benefit of many. I hope many take what i take away from here- love for God’s Word, desire to know more via Holy Spirit and passion for Christ. Shalom.

      Thanks JM, I really enjoyed your newsletter.
      I noticed you used the word “apex” the same word I used in this post and I’m not sure I’ve used that word but a few times in my entire life.

    Mp, very interesting and informative… First time that I’ve seen the term types and shadows since reading George Warnocks books some years back. Yes I agree Yeshua was sacrificed on Nisan 13, or our Gregorian day of Wednesday for 3 days and 3 nights to rise on the close of the Sabbath. All our days start with an evening and a morning….Types and Shawdows of things to come ….starting in Genisis. I could go on about Types and Shawdows but you did a great job articulating this point.

    God is speaking to us through everything. I actually found this website about a month after the NBA finals, because God put on my heart/told me that He was telling a story. I say put on my heart/told me because He basically startled me with the idea. I was laying in bed dozing off/watching some house show with my wife, and before I knew it I sat up really fast and blurted out “God is telling a story with the finals!” This was about a month after the finals. My wife just looked at me and gave me a huh? So at that moment I knew if this is God , I wasn’t the only one to know this and I looked up 2015 NBA finals picture types and shadows and that’s how I found this site. Clearly with all that’s going on, the story is getting deeper… Keep up the good work!

    The just will live by faith.

      David, if the Lord would’ve told me 5 years ago I would be writing prophetic stuff about the NBA I would’ve volunteered to go to a mental hospital.
      In fact, even writing anything connected with scripture would’ve been a surprise with where my heart was at. This is affirmation that as I communicate whatever He places on my heart, He will bring the people across the information who need to see it. Admittedly, this stuff is madness to the average person and if you met me in real life I can pass as a “normal” person believe it or not.

    I was wondering why a song based on Isaiah 62:10-11 was going through my mind yesterday as I was mowing grass. Then I saw this Of Lions And PrincesPrince post and realized that it applies to the removal of this Prince. His confused/unstable christianity combined with his popularity is a rough place in the road to Zion.
    Isaiah 62:10-11 King James Version (KJV)
    10 Go through,
    go through the gates;
    prepare ye the way
    of the people;
    cast up,
    cast up the highway;
    gather out the stones; [Prince = a stone of stumbling]
    lift up a standard for the people.
    11 Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world,
    Say ye to the daughter of Zion,
    Behold, thy salvation cometh;
    behold, his reward is with him,
    and his work before him.

        I saw that in some other article as well about the 111th day, but if I’m doing my math correctly, I’m not sure these people are correct. My math says April 21 is the 112th day of the year. (Although, it is the 111th day in a non-leap year.)

        The article I saw seems to claim that this was some sort of “reverse 9/11” day. In other words, supposedly on 9/11 there are 111 days of the year left. Since April 21 is 111 days in, this is supposed to signify some kind of meaning. (Please correct me if I’m wrong. Haven’t taken the time to do the math and verify this claim.)

        • MP

          Fran, you are correct about it being 112th this year. I wondered how I missed it but I now recall going over it when I was looking at April 19-May 1, 13 day ritual.

          This is an interesting position and one I tend to agree with. When you look at the historical events surrounding these dates if you are willing to look at the 48 hour period surrounding each day it is remarkable.

          It is sort of like 119 days from 9/11 in the Dow’s 119th year the market dropped 911 points. 2016 is the year of 9/11 as 1/1/2016 = 11 and 1/1/16 = 9

          • Fran

            Good points.

            I think there is another way to look at it that mathematically makes perfect sense without being off a day. Instead of the death occurring on the 111th day of the year, there were 111 full days – and then this event. And likewise, the event of 9/11 occurred on 9/11 – and then there are 111 days left to the year. In other words, instead of the events being exactly ON the 111 day mark, there are exactly 111 days before and 111 days after each date.

            • MP

              Just as we don’t for certain the exact day of crucifixion, it appears this event falls within the 2 day window.
              These details point to a deeper truth.

  26. Fran

    Does anyone think that Vanity’s death, 66 days previously, means anything? I am not saying in any way that it does, although I have seen a couple of posters who think there may be some significance.

    This is all too weird, but, you can’t argue that all of these things are “coincidence” either. I have no idea the circumstances of her death, other than years of drug abuse before she turned to Jesus had really taken a toll on her health, according to sources. It just seems too weird that “they” could somehow get into her life and somehow interfere with her health to kill her. Likewise, it seems too weird that a global celebrity such as Prince would actually be alone in a huge facility, as the story seems to be playing out. Don’t celebrities of this caliber have at least one bodyguard in the vicinity 24/7, if not several? And if they are not bodyguards, wouldn’t staff or friends always be in the area? They are really playing up the drug thing right now, but everything I’ve ever heard about Prince is that he was adamantly against them and didn’t lead that sort of lifestyle. Of course, painkillers could be something that anyone would take, just for medicinal purposes, and I suppose there may be a chance a person with good intents could overdose on them accidentally. But in this case, this may seem again too “coincidental.”

    I know that not all of this post relates to your article, so please pardon me if it’s too off topic.

    • MP

      It absolutely does and I was going to include it but with every post I leave out many details so as not to confuse people. The information is already overwhelming for most and tying everything in sadly makes people’s eyes gloss over. Vanity and Prince had an affair at one point. I don’t much care for the conspiracy perspective, whether celebrities are killed off or not. Certainly this happens but when we focus on that we are focusing on the aspects that don’t matter. Since it is my belief that these events tell a story in light of an all knowing and all sovereign God, the reasons for the death are of far less importance than the death itself. Whether Satanic secret society’s off someone or they die from their lifestyle choices, in either case the enemy has taken their life and God allowed it.

      Vanity – I have seen that every labor and every skill which is done is the result of rivalry between a man and his neighbor This too is vanity and striving after wind. Ecclesiastes 4:4 (note 44). Vanity dies 2 days after Scalia. http://www.dailycrow.com/antonin-scalia-and-the-fundamental-transformation/

      We are so blinded by our vanity we miss the larger narrative. 66 days, the number of books in God’s word and the number of man, flesh and sin. We don’t see God’s word b/c we are so caught up with the physical flesh around us. Jesus spoke in parables so they see but see not. These events are much like modern parables, God speaks in dreams, visions, word pictures and riddles so that only those who in faith seek out deeper truths actually see. 66 from our vanity bridges to Prince. The distance between vanity and seeing the Prince is 66. Our vanity is flesh, 66, and it is the distance between us and Prince bridged by God’s word and the 66 books it contains.

      Fran, this was certainly not off topic. It’s really helpful to flesh out these overlaps in the comments section for those who care to go deeper. It is impossible to cover everything in a post.

  27. Fran

    Or it may have been 67 days. Her death became public news on February 15, but the actual date may have been the day before. I do not know the official status.

  28. StylerH

    Do you ever have one of those moments where you jaw drops open and you are stunned at something? When I first saw this article, I skimmed it and had no clue what in the world lions and and that famous lion that was shot had to do with anything. So then I watched Purple Rain. Right there in front of us the Cecil Hotel is prominently displayed. I immediately thought of this article. Coincidence?

  29. StylerH

    I don’t have a screen shot, but in the movie Purple Rain there is a scene where people are talking outside in downtown Minneapolis. In the background, the Cecil Hotel is prominently displayed in the background for several seconds.

  30. Fran

    Ken, your “really?” comment makes sense. I’m not sure if you are asking if it’s really true, or if it’s more of a sardonic commentary. In either case I can understand. That’s some pretty weird stuff, but as this article points out, there are just way too many “weird coincidences” for this to be written off as a joke. I have also seen Purple Rain. I don’t know the reference the other person is making, but the movie is full of one-eye, occult symbolism. On the other hand, so is much or most popular music, so this is not unique to this movie or artist at all. Just look at the album covers of even country music and you’ll see the all-seeing-eye symbolism. Someone is putting that stuff in there, and I don’t know who. I really don’t know if the artists are willingly going along with it and they know what they are doing, or if they are totally naive and just innocently doing what they are told. Since I am not in the entertainment business and don’t know what goes on behind the scenes, I’m not going to impugn anyone. But, to deny that this stuff is not present is just naive. The industry is full of this stuff.

  31. Fran

    From what I’ve learned about Prince since his death, I would have to say that I have gained respect for him in that he was trying to expose some of the darker, hidden things of the elite. We’ve probably all seen the comments by him about chemtrails, etc.

  32. Yes, that is exactly how I meant it. Everything is out there, right out in the open; yet people refuse to see it because it is speaking about things that they refuse to believe is true. They refuse to believe there is a dark force that is battling for our souls. They are hooked on Star Wars, Transformers, Batman and every other comic, but they don’t understand that the forces involved in the movies are real, and are in play in the world today.
    I had a dream the other day where I picked up my mail. There was a letter there with a Harry Potter return address, and then I was given another invitation to a grand wedding supper. The mail lady said that she’s going to the grand wedding supper. This morning I started another new book, Bigger than Impossible, (I have about 20 some left from the 30 I “bought” free one day) and in one spot, the author, Lydia Chorpening says that maybe people today can’t “understand spiritual concepts because the use ‘Harry Potter-type books,’ witchcraft, divination and deception, rather than coming into the spiritual realm by Jesus Christ.” I have these confirmations, (not coincidences) come up all of the time. I believe that most people don’t notice them, or they brush them off, and go back to their video game. I’m not exactly sure what the dream was talking about, but I’m sure I’ll find out.

      You have been getting a lot of rapture dreams Ken.
      The bride and bridegroom, marriage supper of the Lamb.
      This is what happens at the catching away. Though many don’t believe in the rapture or think it is escapism this is the parable of the wise/foolish virgins.

      There is a left behind scenario here. These are 10 virgins but only 5 are wise. It isn’t 5 virgins and 5 harlots.

      But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

      Revelation 3:10 – Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

      The restrainer in 2 Thess. 2 is the Holy Spirit, and The Holy Spirit is symbolized by the oil. If you believe in the power of the Holy Spirit indwelling the body on earth, it only makes sense to understand they cannot be here for the total and complete satanic reign. Either one believes the Holy Spirit, prayer/intercession, the works of the spirit, are meaningless or you could just conclude the most reasonable interpretation of that passage. That is the restrainer is the Holy Spirit, and this is exactly what the parable of the virgins is talking about as well. Only Spirit filled believers are ready, and found worthy to go in the rapture. Does not mean the others aren’t saved but they aren’t going to the wedding feast.

        Hi Matt. I found that Beyonce’s number in gematria is equal to 414… And the title of her new album lemonade is equal to 414 .. I wonder what is hebind that number…

        • Just a thought on this Irma…
          Could it be a audacious perversion by Beyonce or her handlers of the NWO by using 4:14 as per this scripture from the book of Esther

          Esther 4:14Amplified Bible (AMP)

          14 For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
          It just occurs to me this could be taking these numbers to make an upside down view of instead of being a heroine to the Jewish people as Esther was instead the very opposite with plans of their destruction ( Israel ). Whereas Esther being “royalty” as the Queen does Beyonce represent a type of royalty to the elites and this is a symbol for the Haman’s out there.
          This is just a thought and many of you could go much deeper with this than me
          It all comes back down to rebellion and plans to destroy Yahweh’s covenant people both Jew and Christians.

          • Anonymous

            Carla another thing… The word Formation (another song from her album and the actual name of her world tour) in gematria is equal to 666. Creepy. They want to destroy Christians that is for sure. But we should not be afraid. Jesus is coming back soon.

      • M Schwab

        Matt, do you think the hour of temptation is referring to being asleep in the final hour, as the disciples were found asleep by Jesus instead of watching and praying for one hour? Is this not the temptation we are faced with as a spiritually induced slumber tries to overtake each one of us during the final hour?

        • MP

          One one level. The hour of temptation to test the entire world. If we believe that having oil in our lamps is what keeps us vigilant, praying and watching I believe the foolish virgins have fallen into the trap of sleeping. This is certainly another layer to the interpretation but THE temptation that tries the whole world is a temptation connected with the great deception that if it were possible even the elect would be deceived. It is the beast system, final world government that will be so appealing through fleshly eyes.

    Mind Blown!!! I LOVE this stuff!!!! God is So Amazing & Everything has a Prophetic voice!!! I thank the Lord for those who have Ears To Hear!!!!

  34. Gwen

    You have an incredible gift. I am so thankful that you continually point your readers to a loving and sovereign Father, who doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve, but has compassion on us and remembers how we were formed and that we are dust. (Ps. 103). I especially loved your WHAT IF… Thank you for sharing with us all that God has deposited in you.

  35. JCs

    Do you believe in a fake Jesus that may be coming? Does the numerology speak on any of this now on the world scene?

  36. Kevin

    Is it too far fetched to think Prince’s death was orchestrated by global lucifarians to invoke a spell on America for the future purple revolution taking place now? I know world leaders meet at places like the Bohemian Grove & burn effiges in mock sacrifices. They have also had satanists there in attempts to assist with carrying out the wishes of whatever they are seeking. Pedophilia at these annual events in July is common. I believe his death was used for invoking this coming purple revolution. Yahweh to your theme in this article, has everything under His control. We think of spells as make believe, hollywood & disney fantasy entertainment but some world leaders & globalists with power & influence are engaged in it. Thanks for exposing it with your work. Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. God Bless. Thanks MP
