Psalm 22 Cluster Dwarfs Skeptics’ Best Counterexample Continued |
Serendipitous Finds Continue to Expand Psalm 22 Cluster
There is still potentially a great deal of material left to be dug out, but other priorities have caused it to be shelved for some time. Even so, while searching for codes in other clusters, serendipitous finds have turned up in or passing through the psalm, and so the cluster has slowly increased in size even without our direct attention to it.
What the connection is between the longest ELS, the other clusters that it passes through and this cluster, is a mystery, unless it in intended to connect the significance of the sacrifice of the Messiah with end times events. There is Quarrel in His Speeches. A Living Brother Uttered Words to Them and to Me. And Zubaidah Turned to His Sea, Without Then Lying for a Whole Week. Oh, the Mountain of Her Interior Will Bear a Testimonial to Her Name also passes through the Ezekiel 37, Ezekiel 40 and Ezekiel 7 clusters, as well as the Jeremiah 17 cluster. These other clusters are concerned with terrorism, the third temple in Jerusalem and the Battle of Armageddon.
We will Advise the Dove. He will Place in Me the Multitude of Gog. You will be Weakened is an interesting, 24-letter ELS in that it not only contains a hint of the end times and also passes through the Isaiah 53 super cluster, which is also concerned with the execution of Jesus Christ. Gog is generally considered by prophecy experts to be modern day Russia, which Ezekiel 38 prophesies will spearhead an attack on Israel. Some even believe that this assault will signal the beginning of the Tribulation period. Here are the first few verses of that scripture:
The word of the LORD came to me: "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.'"
"'Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety. You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go up, advancing like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land.'" (Ezekiel 38:1-9, NIV)
