The Fallen Angel


Well, I wasn’t too pleased when the “fallen angel” showed up on my iPad today. His number is 666 (Revelation 13:18) Most of us are aware of this “angel” who was cast to earth when a war took place in heaven between Michael and his angels and Satan and his. (Revelation 12:7-9)

Now, whenever this number shows up in my space, I am very aware that another angel must appear to counteract the negativity it implies. Sure enough just as I was referencing this fallen angel, 4:44 appeared on my iPad clock. TYG! (444 is my “angel-in-chief”).

You may be wondering how these numbers appear to me. Let me explain. Today I read this on my screen:  wordpress.com/statsday/66653405. Yesterday it was this message: Akismet protected spams 90,999. This was why I wrote about Ned, which if you read that post yesterday explains 444.

All in all this is why I have fun with my angels and their numbers. Have you “talked” to your angels yet?

 

 

 

My Angels are Numbered


I haven’t made myself aware of my angels for a long time. I used to be aware on a daily basis, and it was so much fun. Today, my prosperity angel, Ned, (999) appeared right here on my iPad just a few minutes ago, reminding me to once again be alert.

I just reblogged Ned’s story.

The Way I See It


Somewhere around 2006 I took part in a Bible study, called The Mustard Seed group (which is why I joined it). The question came up about the Triune or Trinity, the Three in One. The person who posed the question was of a scientific mind, and could not quite “get it”. Admittedly it is a difficult concept to understand, and I struggled with it for a long time until a thought entered my mind that helped me see it in a different light. And here is that thought.

God gave us our minds to use, as the free will he also gave us, dictates. But his greatest wish is for us to acknowledge and believe his word and that of his Son, Jesus; and to love him with all our heart, and soul, and mind; whether it be a brilliant mind, a scientific mind, an average mind, or a simple mind.

Albert Einstein had a scientific mind and here is a clip from Wikipedia’s Religious Views of Albert Einstein:

For Einstein, “science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”[40] He continued:

a person who is religiously enlightened appears to me to be one who has, to the best of his ability, liberated himself from the fetters of his selfish desires and is preoccupied with thoughts, feelings and aspirations to which he clings because of their super-personal value. It seems to me that what is important is the force of this superpersonal content … regardless of whether any attempt is made to unite this content with a Divine Being, for otherwise it would not be possible to count Buddha and Spinoza as religious personalities. Accordingly a religious person is devout in the sense that he has no doubt of the significance of those super-personal objects and goals which neither require nor are capable of rational foundation … In this sense religion is the age-old endeavor of mankind to become clearly and completely conscious of these values and goals and constantly to strengthen and extend their effect. If one conceives of religion and science according to these definitions then a conflict between them appears impossible. For science can only ascertain what is, but not what should be…[40]

And then there’s Sir Isaac Newton: (from the Internet’s Evidence for God)

  1. Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
    In optics, mechanics, and mathematics, Newton was a figure of undisputed genius and innovation. In all his science (including chemistry) he saw mathematics and numbers as central. What is less well known is that he was devoutly religious and saw numbers as involved in understanding God’s plan for history from the Bible. He did a considerable work on biblical numerology, and, though aspects of his beliefs were not orthodox, he thought theology was very important. In his system of physics, God was essential to the nature and absoluteness of space. In Principia he stated, “The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.

Doctors have scientific minds, and I know of some of these gifted people who have very strong beliefs in God. I’ve heard of surgeons who wouldn’t consider beginning an operation without first praying.

God, himself, has a scientific mind. How else do we explain the perfection of the universe? In my opinion, the Big Bang Theory is not an option unless we rewrite Genesis 1:1 to read: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth with a big bang!

No random explosion can cause that kind of perfection, and every seeking mind, being open to the possibility that with God, all things are possible, may realize that as an apple, within its core, contains a seed, contains a tree; and as an atom contains electrons, protons and neutrons; so God contains his Son and his Spirit, each a separate entity contained in the whole.

That’s the way I see it.

The Number Seven


This is my seventieth post since April 5th of this year and I want to celebrate this feat with a post about my favorite number…SEVEN.

Seven is God’s number; the number of perfection, and is mentioned hundreds of time in the Bible. I’m not a scholar, so I can’t be exact, but here are just a few trivia facts about the number seven. (You may want to refer to Humanity 777’s blog.)

At the beginning of the bible, it states in Genesis that God created the world in six days and on the SEVENTH day He rested. Also in Genesis He tells Noah to take SEVEN (or seven pairs) of every kind of animal into the ark. In Revelation alone, this number is mentioned over and over again. And then there is the well known scripture, Matthew 18:22 where Jesus tells Peter he must forgive not SEVEN times but SEVENTY-SEVEN times. There is a chapter on this in My Precious Life, the book.

Everyday trivia about this number includes, SEVEN days in a week, SEVEN dwarfs, SEVEN brides for SEVEN brothers, SEVEN wonders of the world, SEVEN continents, SEVEN seas, to list a few.

In my own life I have a special angel whose number is 777. I call her Celeste. Also in my own life I recorded this data on February 1, 2003 because of the significance of the number:

7 Astronauts died when the Columbia shuttle disintegrated over Texas

7 Students died in an avalanche in B.C.

7 People died in an avalanche on Jan. 20/03 in B.C.

When I recorded this information, I also made a note that SEVEN is God’s number; is He trying to tell us something? And if so, what?

When I am out and about and see a triple SEVEN anywhere; car license plates, bus numbers, telephone numbers, street numbers, etc., it brings an instant smile to my face.

I consider this blog a celebration of my SEVENTIETH post, which also brings a smile to my face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ned is an Angel


My angels are numbered. Let me tell you how Ned got his number.  It all began with a book I read in 1991, The Messengers, by Julia Ingram and G.W. Hardin.  In one chapter angels were making themselves known to four different individuals in the guise of the numbers 444.  As a matter of fact, the chapter was titled ‘The 444’s’.  In the book, a lady who supposedly could talk to the angels, told the main character that his special angel was number 4.  This triggered a memory for me.  Many years ago I had been told that the number 7 was very important to me.  Could it be that my special angel was numbered 777?  I believed so and connected the name, Celeste, with that number.  Before long I came to feel that many angels were with me and I identified some by numbers. ”

Once aware of the angels in my life it was wonderful the way they made themselves known to me whenever I called upon them. Presently, an awareness crept into my psyche whenever triple numbers appeared, whether on license plates, advertised telephone numbers on poles and billboards or even a particular hymn number on Sunday morning.  Whatever was happening, it was a good thing–but back to Ned.

I’m one of those people who makes a little time for quietness before the start of the day. I was reading an article in an angel magazine one morning, and the writer was describing an incident where she was mentally asking for help with a computer program she was working on which had to do with finances.  Suddenly, the name ‘Ned’ came to her.  Shaking her head at this imaginative voice, she continued trying to conquer the problem she was having–to no avail.  Once again she found herself mentally saying, “I need some help here” and once again the name ‘Ned’ popped into her mind.  The writer had a name book on hand and looked up ‘Ned’. It was a derivative of Edward, meaning prosperous guardian.  “Great” she thought, “I can live with that kind of help, thank you very much,” and soon found her thinking had cleared and the problem was solved.

Back to my angels. As yet I wasn’t aware of my prosperity angel and the number 999 suddenly came to my mind.  Wondering if Ned and 999 were connected I began to look for that particular number on my drive to work.

A feeling of vague disappointment enveloped me as I neared my destination and my prosperity angel had not manifested yet. Suddenly, a traffic tie-up occurred in front of me.  Knowing there was a short-cut I could take, I turned the first corner I came to.  There, parked at the side of the road to my right, was a car with the license plate N E D.  Awesome!  But that is not the end of the story.  That afternoon I entertained a business colleague who knew my penchant for angels and their numbers.  Nonchalantly, over a cup of coffee, she volunteered the following information, “By the way, on my way over here the car in front of me had 999 on the license plate–I thought you might be interested.”

That’s how I know Ned is and Angel.
