What an odd experience I had this morning. I meant to write about it earlier, but didn't have the time before or during work. This happened around 7-8am today (July 31).
I awoke to the extremely strong impression of 'ONLY 20% LEFT!' And as an accompanying note, also the number 3.
It wasn't quite a dream, and I don't want to say it was technically an audible voice, but it was enough to wake me up with this strong impression of 'Only 20% left!' and the number 3. This never happens to me. I can't recall a single time in my life waking up to something like this. Feeling words like this.
While I was still a little morning-fuzzy, I thought 'maybe that was from The Lord,' as I pray almost every night for some sort of indication of His return through my dreams. This usually doesn't happen, but I pray anyway.
I had no idea what to make of it, if anything. So I thought, 20% of what? A day? Week? Month? Year? And what's with the number 3? (I actually wasn't going to share the number 3 part here, as I thought it was maybe insignificant, but what just now happened made me want to share it, and you'll see why)
So while I laid in bed for a few minutes pondering over this, I pulled out my phone calculator and starting looking at some of those numbers. I feel like The Lord has really been speaking to people lately through Strong's concordance numbers, so I thought I'd put a few things in to see if anything stood out as significant, which I didn't really think they would. Boy, was I wrong.
I took the first two numbers that came to mind -
20% of a day. 24hrs x 0.2 = 4.8 hours
Strong's 48 - To make pure, purify, cleanse - ceremonially and morally.
Next, I did 20% of a week. 7 days x 0.2 = 1.4
Strong's 14 - To work good, to do good, to do well, act rightly.
Somewhat similar to the first. Hmmm... I sort of wrote this off to coincidence at first.
Then I decided to check what 20% of a year is. 365 x 0.2 = 73. Exactly 73.
Guess what 73 is in Strong's concordance.... Please feel free to look these up yourself, don't take my word for it.
Strong's 73 - The assembly of the Greeks at their national games. The Olympics.
Exactly 20% of a year = 73, which is the number of the Olympics!!! It can also mean conflict, fight, contention, and race.
My mind was reeling when I saw this. My next thought was, 'So what, only 20% left of the Olympics?' I checked to see how long the games are running, and it's 17 days from start to finish.
Strong's 17 - Acting rightly, doing well, virtuous.
Okay, eerily similar to the first two numbers as well.
Care to know what 20% of 17 days is? Well, it's 3.4
So, with all the afforementioned numbers aside, if I'm to interpret this as - from the time I had this 'only 20% left' impression - there is only 20% of the Olympic games left, which would be 3.4 days, then 3.4 days from then would land us right smack in the middle of August 3rd, Tu B'Av.
And here's the icing on the cake:
I wasn't going to share the number 3, but it was definitely right there along with 'Only 20% left.'
Well, as I was writing this I said a quick, 'Lord I don't know if I should share the number 3 part, what does that have to do with anything?' So I looked up 3 in Strong's concordance and found my answer.
Strong's 3 - Abbadon, destruction
I also just now decided to check the number 20 itself, and it fits like a glove.
Strong's 20 - Exultation, extreme joy, gladness.
And just for kicks, I thought I'd check out 203 (20+3) and I'm laughing because I can't even believe this one.
Strong's 203 - A Gentile. One who is uncircumcised.
So, to put all of these words into a context that could make sense (I'm not saying this is true, just putting it all together) - There are only 3.4 days (or 20% of 17 days) left of the Olympics to purify and cleanse ourselves - morally and ceremonially - by doing good and acting rightly and virtuously, before destruction comes, but also comes extreme joy and exultation of the Gentiles.
Now just a little disclaimer:
I do NOT want this message to be taken as, 'I heard from The Lord, and this is factual information!' This could be absolutely nothing but coincidence and personal conjecture! I'm just sharing what happened this morning, and what these numbers pointed to for me. Use your own discernment please. I love you all very much, and I pray that we'll see each other in the air soon to be with our Lord Yeshua.
