A while back Russ told me the Houston Astros beat the LA Dodgers in the World Series ending 11/1/17. God often conveys prophetic messages to me through headline news. This particular sporting event, although not the most unusual, was possibly the most alarming.
The first thing that stood out to me was the date the series ended. If you regroup the numbers in 11/1/17, you get 11, 11, 7. Lately I have noticed 11's repeatedly showing up on clocks and in other random places. Some people believe the number 11 represents the prophetic while others link this number to disorder, chaos and judgment. The 7 represents perfection or completion. It seemed like God wanted to show me something extremely important.
That became more evident when I considered the team names. For the first time, the Houston Astro’s were the World Series victors. This was probably encouraging to this beleaguered city after the devastation of hurricane Harvey. The name Astros reminded me of asteroids. Exactly two months earlier, the asteroid “Florence” came dangerously close to earth. It was so close that some people said that we “dodged a bullet.” These asteroids fly by quite often but their frequency has increased exponentially since 2011 (another 11). The size of Florence is believed to be the biggest space rock to pass this close since NASA began keeping records in 1995.
Interestingly, the Astros used to be called Colt 45's (1962-65). This name reminded me of bullets. This one team carried the symbolism of both asteroids and bullets. They were one and the same. What an interesting synchronicity in light of that recent “close call” with Florence. That’s pretty amazing but it gets even better.
The team that the Astros just beat was the LA Dodgers! When I put the three “impressions” I get from these two team names, it results in “dodge, bullet, asteroid.” I felt God was telling me that I need to pay attention to the fact that the Earth recently “dodged an asteroid bullet.” If Florence had hit with the same velocity as the one that exploded over Russia four years ago it would have created a 34 mile wide crater!
It’s important to note that the Astros prevailed over the Dodgers... in the seventh game (another 7). The score was 5-1 (does that have anything to do with Houston getting 51 inches of record breaking rain from Harvey?). Five is the number for grace. Even though Florence didn’t hit our planet (by God’s grace!) will we dodge the next one? Or will an asteroid/bullet overtake the Earth like the Astro’s overcame the Dodgers?
Recently I came across an artist’s drawing of another recent asteroid. This one was shaped like a cigar - or was it more like a bullet? This one hurtled past Earth in October at 196,000 mph and was about 85 times the distance to the moon (Florence was only 18 times the distance). It’s unusual name, ‘Oumuamua, is the Hawaiian word for “messenger” or “scout.” That’s interesting … maybe, like Florence, this is also a warning message.
These observations may sound like I am forecasting scenes from the Deep Impact or Armaggedon movies from 1998. Actually, I just want to share my impressions because I believe they may be a divine warning. They may be a call to prayer or even preparedness. I’m still trying to figure that out. Let me know what you think. All comments and input are welcome!
Then the second angel sounded: and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood.
