Hurricane Lorenzo, Christ’s crown & Pi

Hurricane Lorenzo means“The one who wears a laurel wreath

ITS STRENGTH AND SIZE: 5 ASTOUNDING FACTS ABOUT LORENZO

  1. Lorenzo is the largest recorded storm to have made it so far east in the north Atlantic

  2. The wind field is approximately five times the size of an average hurricane, with hurricane force winds that reach 250 km out from the centre of the storm

  3. Waves of up to 25 metres (82 feet) have been recorded in far east Atlantic

  4. Lorenzo reached Category 5 status in late September making it the second Category 5 of the season. (The other was Dorian)

  5. The storm has been spinning for 11 days and still is swirling in a northeast direction The Weather Network

Pi Day

In the previous post, I said that God revealed His geometric signature hidden in Pi and that Sept 22 was the new “Pi Day”.  It happens that Sept 22, 2019, is also when Lorenzo began to form.

Star of David along with all major geometric patterns are all here represented. However, it is also easy to see the victors laurel here in this circuit of flowers/leaves. This geometric pattern was known in antiquity as “The Flower of Life”

Then on Wednesday morning, the storm became a hurricane. On that same morning, the Lord showed me the full shape of His signature hidden between the 37th and 61st decimals of Pi (where there ought only to be randomness). At left is that image. It was well known in the ancient (and modern) world, (as I found out afterward).

Laurel wreaths were given to the victors of the ancient Olympic Games of Greece to be placed upon their heads like a crown. Based upon the sign of Lorenzo, the Lord claims that this wreath — this “the Flower of Life” (as it is called) is to Him a laurel. It is the victor’s crown of life given to Jesus by His Father. He is the author of life itself.

Jesus is the true Star-Gate!

— the ONLY way to God.

Flower of Life demonstrating the garland of 12 stars. I have traced the 12 circles, 6 in black and 6 in orange. Each has 12 leaves shaped like 12 stars — 144 leaves in all. But amazingly,  there are only seven circles/stars that can be drawn at any one time without overlapping another, with the seventh in the middle. The book of Revelation refers to seven stars in Christ’s right hand and “the woman” who gives birth to Christ, “wearing a garland of 12 stars” around her head. No other geometric pattern accommodates both 12 and 7 like this!
Flower of Life with emphasis on the Star of David. Here there is one within the other. This also informs us that the six-petals of the flowers do in fact represent stars also. Moreover, two Star of Davids means 12 points/triangles!
Here the cube is emphasized. “New Jerusalem comes down from heaven” shaped like a cube. The second term in the formula produces this Triune cube with its three leaves per side. The Bible says that the tree of life in the city will bear 12 fruits and “the leaves are for the healing of the nations”. The tree of life is the “Y” cross in the middle

Three-and-a-half days

Three-and-a-half days after the storm became a hurricane Lorenzo obliterated the record for the most powerful storm that far east and north in the Atlantic Ocean. It did so as Sept 28th ended. This was most appropriate because the formula of Pi has the circumference of 22 (thus Sept 22 as said that same day), therefore the perimeter of its corresponding square that encloses the circle is 28, hence the 28th, with the last of the four weeks (28 days) divided in half by the said 3.5 days. (See post on Pi for more about Pi itself.)

What does it all mean?

Jesus finished the circuit around the square!

He has finished the race!

He has sat down at the right hand of His Father in heaven. This hurricane is a memorial of that, as was Hurricane Dorian.

Hurricane Dorian at first landfall, Sept 1, 2019. Dorian — the gift of God. Lorenzo — the reward of God

Dorian means “gift” — Jesus is the gift of God to man. This I posted early Sept 1, 2019, in connection with Pi, as Dorian broke records that day for its sheer power; and like Lorenzo, for its northern location when that happened. Therefore, Sept 1, 22, 28 are the start and endpoints of the formula as stated just before these events happened.

Dorian — the gift of God.

Lorenzo — the reward of God.

The two signs are as one.

The expanded view, in accordance with the encoded formula hidden in the decimals of Pi. Stare at it to see the cube and the star of David, etc. The formula creates the above, except three-dimensionally, and likely four

Two formulas shaped like two menorahs

Yesterday, (late morning on Sept 29th, 2019), I finally understood the middle term within “the-signature-of-God” formula.

The below formula comes first. The rest are expressions of virtually the same formula which are added to the first — plus 10^-37.

The first part of Pi formula. I am presently working on an illustration to show that it is arranged like the Menorah, with its seven branches and 22 blossoms. The seventh term (not counting 22/7) contains within it an eighth, “which is of the seventh”. Each term declares the redemption of Christ on the cross, who restores the lost sheep back with the 99 and who forgives to the uttermost
The formula of Pi shaped like a menorah. An incomplete work in progress. The sixth flame is the sixth day of creation, man, who soon went astray like a lost sheep. Just this part of the formula alone is so accurate to Pi that a circle around the Milky Way Galaxy would be out by mere atoms. In the book of Revelation, Jesus walks among the seven golden lampstands and “holds the seven stars in His right hand”. Recall below image.
Garland of 12 stars. 12 circles, 6 in black and 6 in orange. Each has 12 leaves shaped like 12 stars — 144 leaves in all. But amazingly,  there are only seven circles/stars that can be drawn at any one time without overlapping another, with the seventh in the middle. The book of Revelation refers to seven stars in Christ’s right hand and who walks among the 7 lampstands, and “the woman” who gives birth to Christ, “wearing a garland of 12 stars” around her head
The simplest formula that produces the said geometric pattern. It also is arranged as a menorah with its seven branches. Thus there are two menorahs altogether, with this second menorah revealing the geometric shape, as said, and is based upon a Triune formula. One must add 10^-37, plus the first formula, to see the full digits of Pi when adding the second menorah, which digits are as follows:

3.141 592 653 589 793 238 462 643 383 279 502 884 197 169 399 375 105 820 974 944 592 307

The following formulas give the bare minimum information to deduce each intersecting pattern. The first four terms produce four interlocking shapes (and perhaps the seventh) and duplicate as if by a prism (i.e., upside down) around the x and y-axis centered at zero. Each shape is based upon the preceding term. The denominator has a separate function than the numerator and must be first interpreted independently then ALSO together.

For example, the second term is 1000 times greater than the first term but 1000 times smaller than the term after it. But to the Lord, "A day is as a 1000 years and a 1000 years is as a day", and thus all three terms can be viewed as having the same denominator.

Every term is progressively on average 10,000 times more accurate to Pi then the previous term, 10^28 in total, (i.e., thereby conforming to the 37th through to the 65th decimals of Pi).

This is another version of the formula, this one balanced with its minus and plus. By the way, at the end of the first Menorah (i.e., the first equation that begins with 22/7), distance bottoms out at the Planck scale. One cannot go smaller in any rational way due to quantum effects. And by the end of the second menorah-formula, Planck time is reached when time no longer has any meaning due to quantum effects. (Both the “+1/3” and “+23” can be omitted, although less accurate.)
The fullest form of the formula for the geometric signature of God. This, plus the first formula, is accurate to Pi to the 65th decimal. I have yet to understand the last term, but it denotes the exponential of Pi in some way. The “91” and “72” of the sixth term relate both to the Flower of Life at the sixth layer of circles outward, and to Enoch’s calendar of 364. By the seventh term, time is no more due to quantum effects. The terms are grouped together to flow into the center as “Time, times, and half-a-time”
This is the exact same as the previous one except expressed in a way the brings out the dimensions of the New Jerusalem. The denominators of the six and seventh terms are 5000-squared and 12000-squared, which are the dimensions of the New Jerusalem in Ezekiel 45:6 and Revelation 21:16, respectively. Each is multiplied by 10^14 and thus they can be combined as one long term, too. “147” is 3 jubilees cubed (3*7*7). The last three terms give the different intersecting scales of the shapes produced by the first four terms
Recall the cube. New Jerusalem comes down from heaven shaped like a cube. The second term in the formula produces the cube with three leaves per side. The Bible says that the tree of life in the city will bear 12 fruits and “the leaves are for the healing of the nations”

Squaring the Circle

Yesterday (morning of Sept 29, 2019) I finally understood the middle term, which is the most important branch of the Menorah: “1/2 of Pi^3/2”. As it turns out when it is combined with the previous three terms it symbolizes the impossible feat of squaring the circle!

Squaring the circle. Both square and circle here have an area of exactly Pi. This is the meaning and shape of the fourth term. When overlapped with the previous three terms it does something wonderful!

This is impossible to do (see Wiki article for why). Throughout the ages, a host of mathematicians have tried and failed — because it is — impossible.

This middle term does not literally do the impossible, but rather it symbolizes the impossible. Nevertheless, it produces very accurate approximations around the redemptive theme of 70*7, 77, and the 99 and one. It’s main addition to the Flower of Life Laural image that was produced by the previous three terms is that it gives the thickness of the lines that are used in the image. They form a wall around the whole city.

The wall/boundary is composed of a lattice of diamonds, squares, triangles and circles, similar to the outer circles in the below image, except more intricate and considerably thinner.

I will explain all this later, as the Lord permits.

Crown of Life

One final note: The numeric of Pi brings out an amazing truth over and over again. From the Father’s perspective, Jesus is the Son who was lost and found, who was dead but is alive forevermore — the Only Son of God who is the substitute for sinners.

When the circle is squared, the lost Son, the rejected stone — He becomes the cornerstone because the Star of David (located within the Flower of Life) has a thin wall 99 squares/circles along each side, with the hundredth at the corner, when the star is multiplied by 70. (This thin wall is the result of squaring the circle, symbolic of the impossible, the redemption of man by His blood, the camel through the eye of the needle.)

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate. (Luke 15)

To Jesus belongs the victory laurel.

And He will share it with the one who finishes the race.

Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. (Rev 2:10b)

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12)

New Age Sign

God always does things by the mouth of two or three witnesses. This is now the second sign in two months directed towards those labeled as “New Age”. These are two pillars in the New Age system of belief that relegate Christ to just another belief system.

God loves you very much, my New-Age friend, and this is proof of that.

The first sign was the Buddabrot down by the Christobrot.

The Christobrot fractal (replacing the so-called "Buddhabrot")
The Christobrot fractal (replacing the so-called “Buddhabrot”)

The second is the “Flower of Life”, the fulcrum of New Age science.

I never heard of either of these until after the Lord revealed them, and in what manner they pertain to Jesus!

He is the Star-Gate!

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

Talk to Jesus!

Turn around and tell Him your sorry and want to follow him. Believe in Jesus, the One and Only Son of God, who died for your sins. He will save you. He is the door to New Jerusalem.

Signature of God hidden in Pi (π)

I most go to work, but I want to announce this day as the new Pi day!

I will explain later, but encoded within the decimals of Pi (where there ought to be randomness) are the instructions for a geometrical shape representative of God Himself — His Triune signature.

This geometrical shape is hidden between the 37th and 61st decimals of Pi. The formula itself is shaped like a Menorah. The shape is actually 3D. A cube (70^3), sphere, and a pyramid. One unit equals 70 as per formula so that the perimeter is 3*3*70 *2 = 1260, etc. and so forth!

The above is added to the below formula for Pi (plus 10^37).

Both go together — accurate to Pi to the 57th decimal

The two are shaped like two menorahs. The rest will be explained later.

This is close to what the full formula creates. As it turns out, it is a well-known pattern believed to represent Creation. However, this is only a shadow of the 3D (4D?) reality as is clear from the formula itself.  (Image from Wiki)

Here is a short video of the above in 3D, but unfortunately New Age thinking dominates.

The below pattern created by Alex Carusillo (whom I do not know) is best viewed at “.5x”.  It illustrates the flow of patterns of what appears to be encoded between the 57th and 61st decimals of pi.

Pi π (22/7) on the Sun and Dorian

The “seven” on the sun was just brought to my attention. I have added it to the previous post, along with more information. I only post it here for those who read the previous post already and, therefore, might miss out on this information.

Pi on sun and 11/7
Pi on the sun and 22/7. Image of the sun early Sept. 1, 2019, with the number “7” visible that also resembles the π (Pi) sign. “Seven” is the main number repeatedly used in the below Pi formula — and this happened on the same day of importance as discussed in this article. This autumn likely marks the start of a new solar cycle. Therefore, God wrote the seven for a sign that means, “22 years over 7”, as found in the below formula, which is related to the fraction 22/7 for π. (A full solar cycle is 11y + 11y = 22 years, and is the deepest solar minimum in a century.)

Hurricane Dorian, the Eye of Pi & Sun/Moon

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring, (Luke 21:25)

Three great signs on the same day.

Why?

What displays the circle (Pi) in the heavens better than the circle of the sun and moon?

And what demonstrates a circle on earth better than the eye of a perfect circle of a stalled Cat 5 hurricane?

Hurricane hunter plane in the eye of Dorian with the sun seen within the circle of the eye. Amazingly, at the same time, on the sun (too bright to see) is a large number 7 within the Pi π symbol literally sketched on the sun!

Hurricane Dorian has smashed all sorts of intensity records in the Atlantic Ocean (Sept 1, 2019 Washington Post)

Although in awe of the works of God (Psalm 107:24), sadly suffering can be a consequence, but God always works it for good.

Using Enoch time frames, this formula is true to Pi to the 9th decimal of accuracy, (3.141 592 653 59).  The 22/7 is well known as an approximate of Pi, but here the 7/22 corresponds to the 7th day of the Creation and the 22nd day (Tabernacles). (In the Bible a day is as a year and a year as a day.) This demonstrates the extreme compatibility of Pi with the Enochian calendar

(Both posts were archived and date stamped on independent Archive.org the same days posted.)

The equation is arranged as “A time, times, and a half-time” (“d, G, g, y”), Dan 9:27, 12:7, Rev 12:14. The two largest numbers (“G” and “g”) refer to One Year of Precession, but also, reversely, to the smallest part of a day. The “182” is half an Enochian year of 364 days

Also, see “the 7th day of π and the wink of an eye” for the best and final version of these equations.

The Milky Way. The “1/25920 and 1/25800” in the formula refers to both the smallest Jewish/Babylonian parts of a year (= 3.333… seconds) and the largest, known as “The Great Year” of precession, (= 72 & 71.666… years = 1 day), that is, when “d” is redefined as “The Great Year * d”. Hence the formula tracks the sun, moon, and stars, measuring the width of the entire galaxy to an accuracy of about the width of a few hairs! It thus measures light-YEARS, too, because the formula refers to both time and space

Accurate to the diameter of π to the 25th decimal, the formula incorporates all biblical timeframes and is the frame upon which all events occur  — especially Biblical history.

The more impacting the revelation, the greater the sign, hence, Dorian and π (22/7) on the sun — both signs on the same day.

Jesus is the Dorian/Gift of God — the Rod of God. He is the measurement of all things, to whom be glory forever.

This article was originally part of my correspondence with David Rooke, who had just sent me the table of dates for a couple of the Enoch calendars. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time because this article is rather technical. If you wish, skip down to the heading that interests you!

 

687-years from Adam to birth of Methuselah, Enochs’ son

On August 30, 2019, I came across the Wikipedia article that mentions the 687-year cycle as the next logical step within the Metonic 19-year cycle of the (Jewish) lunar calendar.

This morning (Sept. 1st) while studying Pi in Genesis, I “coincidentally” realized that there are 687 years to when Enoch’s son, Methuselah was born. As said, according to Wikipedia, a leap month every 687 years is the next logical step within the 19-year Metonic cycle to preserve its accuracy.

Given that Enoch lived 365 years (obviously alluding to the solar year), I am convinced that the said “687 years” is intentional and thus the Metonic lunar cycles begin from Creation. The lunar and solar calendars, therefore, converge in this way fittingly at Enoch. The Metonic cycle begins from Creation and runs as 19 x 36 years (plus 3) equals 687 years, at which time an extra leap month must be added.

Interestingly, Methuselah lived 969 years, and thus from Enoch’s death to the Flood remain 669 years.

969 and 669 are interesting numbers in that, similarily, 66966 BC is Enoch’s birthdate on the Sumerian tablets.

Or, as I said, plus 720 years, and thus, 66966n/7t BC and 67686n/7t BC, which is 687 x 49 x 4 back to itself in the AD/BC mirror! 

These two dates are themselves half of 364 x 360 to Abraham’s birth and the Exodus of 2166 and 1446 BC. (Recall the formula of Pi, and half of 364 x 365 to 536 BC, when 70 x 7 was revealed to Daniel (ch 9). Indeed, note all combinations, such as 360 x 360, and even less 21000 of the Sumerian kings list for Enoch is 25 x 1260 to 14466 BC, etc.

12600 years equal symbolic 14006 BC Creation date

By the way, recall that by adding the TOTAL age of each person from Moses and Aaron back to Adam equals 12600 years. (He hid the best patterns using this method!)

Thus, 1406 BC plus 12600/12603.5 equals 14006 spring BC (and also 14010 autumn BC). (Recall that there is a 3.5-year difference in that age of Moses and his brother Aaron at birth.)

However, as said before, the LXX adds the second “Kenaan” in the genealogy and is supported by the New Testament in Luke 3:36-37.

Kenaan lived “460 years”, and thus 12600 (or 12603.5) plus this extra 460 = 13060/13063.5 years, which therefore comes to 14466 BC Nisan 1st and 14470 Tishri 1st as the Creation (using this method). (The plagues on Egypt were from 1447t to 1446n BC, and 1446 Nisan is when the lunar calendar was given to Israel to keep. Notice anything odd with those dates?)

As we know, the extra leap month is inserted the month before the lunar New Year, in the spring. However, it appears that with the special (unofficial) 687 cycle it is added in the civil New Year, which is around autumn.

It happens that the Lord revealed this just this matter this morning, which is exactly one month before the New Year (Elul 1st, which is Sept 1, 2019), and is exactly 24 cycles of the said 687 years — to the very day — back to the said 14470t BC!

The fact that it is 24 cycles is especially interesting because, 686 is 14 jubilees (of 49 years), and 24*686 is 336*49. That is, a jubilee on the priestly calendar in years!

Today marks no ordinary 687-year cycle

Moreover, by adding the leap month of this special cycle of 687 years in the autumn instead of the spring (as is normal for 19-year Metonic cycles) this has the added benefit of not having half-the year as potentially 8 months long, but instead where an overlap occurs of leap months, there instead are two half-year periods each with 7 months, something that would occur on average only every two or three cycles of 687-years, (that is, about every 2000 years).

And because 686 is 7*2 jubilees (of 7*7 years), therefore, to have two seven-month periods in one year fits the seven-year symbolism very well.

Now it happens that today is one of those rare cycles that have two leap months in one year, because March 2019 was, in fact, a leap month, and apparently today would have been the New Year had not this very special leap-month been added today!

The Eye of Pi: Hurricane Dorian surges to record strength on the very day

In that signs typically accompany major intersections on the calendars (as I have documented repeatedly over the past 30 years), no doubt this is why just this morning Hurricane Dorian suddenly roared into the history books as the strongest hurricane in that part of the world ever.

The Rod of Pi

Satellite images show a symmetrical cyclone with a circular 10 n mi diameter eye and intense eyewall convection with lots of lightning being detected. NASA (NOAA) 11 pm, Sept 1, 2019
The extremely important discovery that the Bible, with its complex multi-layered numeric patterns (including the fractals), all have their foundation in Pi (the circle) was posted the day before and the day after the formation of Dorian, whose eye became an exceptional perfect circle, tied for the strongest Atlantic hurricane to make landfall, the first to strengthen rapidly from a high-end cat 4 to a high-end cat 5. In fact, it did this in under 9 hours, on Elul 1st (Sept 1).

 

The square root of 2 triangle, and is related to Pi. The “Rod of Pi” is this diagonal line, that is also the diameter of the circle. This Rod symbolizes Christ and the cross

The overarching message of Pi and the calendars is that Jesus Christ reconciles the irreconcilable — Jesus squares the circle! Jesus rationalizes the irrational. He is the 99/70 — He seeks the lost one and forgives “70×7”, having made atonement by His blood, (Matt 18). He is the diameter of the circle — the Three in One, the Second Person of the Godhead.

He makes straight the crooked and counts that which is lacking, such as the Square of Two, (that is, the diagonal line, whose ratio is 99/70).

Thanks be to God for His unspeakable Gift/Dorian! (2Cor 9:15)

I, the Teacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem. 13And I set my mind to seek and explore by wisdom all that is done under heaven. What a heavy burden God has laid on the sons of men to keep them occupied!

14I have seen all the things that are done under the sun, and have found them all to be futile, a pursuit of the wind.

15What is crooked cannot be straightened, and what is lacking cannot be counted. (Ecclesiastes 1:13-15)

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Dorian made a second landfall at 2 p.m. on Great Abaco Island near Marsh Harbour at 185 mph (285 kph).

The centre says that is tied for the strongest Atlantic hurricane landfall on record with the 1935 Labor Day hurricane. (CTVNews)

Hurricane Dorian Discussion Number  33
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL052019
1100 AM EDT Sun Sep 01 2019

Air Force and NOAA reconnaissance planes penetrated the distinct eye of Dorian, and found that the hurricane has become extremely intense with a stadium effect in the eye. The NOAA plane reported a peak flight-level wind of 159 kt, while the SFMR from both planes have measured winds between 155 and 170 kt.  A dropsonde from the NOAA plane measured a wind gust of 176 kt at the surface. A blend of these measurements yield to an initial intensity of 155 kt, making Dorian the strongest hurricane on record in the northwestern Bahamas.

 (Update: Winds increased to 185 with gust to 220 mph.)

687-year potential Metonic Cycle as quoted from Wikipedia

The Metonic cycle is related to two less accurate subcycles:

  • 8 years = 99 lunations (an Octaeteris) to within 1.5 days, i.e. an error of one day in 5 years; and
  • 11 years = 136 lunations within 1.5 days, i.e. an error of one day in 7.3 years.

By combining appropriate numbers of 11-year and 19-year periods, it is possible to generate ever more accurate cycles. For example, simple arithmetic shows that:

  • 687 tropical years = 250,921.39 days;
  • 8,497 lunations = 250,921.41 days.

This gives an error of only about half an hour in 687 years (2.5 seconds a year), although this is subject to secular variation in the length of the tropical year and the lunation. (Wiki)
