“Not one iota will pass away”. God is sovereign over storm names

Update to these two posts from half-a-year ago:

What’s in a name?

On March 17th, 2021, it was announced that four Hurricane names have expired from use.


Geneva, 17 March 2021 – The World Meteorological Organization’s Hurricane Committee has retired Dorian (2019) and Laura, Eta and Iota (2020) from the rotating lists of Atlantic tropical cyclone names because of the death and destruction they caused.

It also decided that the Greek alphabet will not be used in future. World Meterorological Org

Half-a-year ago I wrote an article about Hurricanes Eta and Ita. A little before that, I wrote about Hurricanes Dorian and Laura. In these posts, “Eta & Iota”, and “Dorian & Laura” are paired together.

Hurricanes Dorian and Laura

New York marathon-wreath-2019. (See post, Marathon Man and woman)

The Lord, who knows the future, moved me to start a very long series of posts about running the race to win the (Olympic) prize. This series began in 2019 with Hurricane Dorian and ended with Laura in 2020. (“Dorian” means “gift” and “Laura” means, “Laural wreath/crown”.)

Of course, God knew beforehand that this would be a year that called for much endurance — as in an Olympic race. Covid has tested the endurance of us all. That’s why the long series of posts about endurance that began Sept. 1st, 2019 — a few months before news of a virus out of China emerged.

The post about Hurricane Laura begins by saying this:

Victor’s Crown

I am coming soon! Hold on to what you have so that no one takes your victor’s crown. (Rev. 3:10-11)

A year ago I began recording the signs on earth regarding “The victor’s crown”. The first sign and post began with cat. 5, Hurricane Dorian. The name Dorian means, “a gift”.

Shortly after that came cat. 5, Hurricane Lorenzo, which means,  “The one who wears a laurel wreath“. (Lorenzo has the same basic meaning as Laura.)

You can go back and read those posts for yourself. However, one thing I pointed out in the Laura Post is that one year passed between these two hurricanes, both at the autumn New Year, etc. “One year”, I said, is like a “lap” of time around the Olympic arena.

Now it happens that the day when it was announced that Dorian and Laura are expired was March 17th, 2021. This was the New Year on the Enoch Calendar as discussed in the previous post.

It is also remarkable that I said in the subsequent post to Hurricane Laura that the actual Olympic games were also delayed a year to symbolize the Lord’s victory lap of one year.

It happens that due to Covid, (which means, “Crown”), the expiring of the name Dorian was also delayed a year. That’s why the unusual step of dropping Dorian and Laura at the same time, although one year apart.

The Hurricane Committee agreed on the retirement of names from 2020, along with 2019, because this was not on the agenda of last year’s Hurricane Committee due to the unfolding COVID-19 crisis. World Meterorological Org

The following quote from the World Meteorological Organization leads us to our next brief discussion about Eta and Iota.

The 2020 season got off to an early and rapid start with a record nine named storms from May through July. It ended late, with two major hurricanes in November for the first time on record and at a time when the season is normally winding down. The season was so active that WMO’s 21-name rotating list was exhausted and the Greek alphabet was used for only the second time (the first time was in 2005). World Meterorological Org

Hurricanes Eta and Iota and ‘The End of the World’

For, verily I say to you, till that the heaven and the earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle may not pass away from the law, till that all may come to pass. Matt 5:18 (YLT)

Over time, in Greek, the letter “Eta” now makes the same sound as “Iota”. They are essentially the same letter. Thus, “Iota” has “passed away” from use and is symbolic of ‘heaven and earth passing away’ as Jesus said. This is the basic meaning of the Hurricane Iota post.

Consequently, the timing of the passing away of Iota is important.

As said, the announcement that Iota has passed away was made on the Enoch New Year, March 17, 2021. This is exactly to the day half-seven-years to the 70th jubilee. (A jubilee is 7 x 7 years). In other words, March 17th, 2020, could have literally been the end of the world if God had chosen this particular prophetic timetable. Instead, God gave a token sign of what might have been.

The Hurricane Iota post mainly had to do with an island under siege. Therefore, ponder this verse about “heaven and earth” passing away.

The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. (Rev. 6:14

Hurricane Iota grazes Providence Island, (which is the dot just below the eye)

And speaking of “rolling up like a scroll”, it is interesting that the two equivalent letters, Eta and Iota in Hebrew spell “Woe”! And it is spelled like this just once in the Bible.

And when I looked, behold, a hand was stretched out to me, and behold, a scroll of a book was in it. And he spread it before me. And it had writing on the front and on the back, and there were written on it words of lamentation and mourning and woe הי.

What about Alpha and Omega?

The most amazing sign to do with hurricanes was not Iota but was “Alpha”. (Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. They are used as a title of God in the Book of Revelation. The basic meaning is that God is the living word: He is the First and Last and every letter in between.) This was explained in the below post about the sign of “Storm Alpha”.

Storm “ALPHA” forms at “BEGINNING” of Jewish New Year (& Supreme Court Judge dies)

The following is a quote from the above post.

They ran out of names for storms today and had to resort to the Greek letters of the alphabet. This happened only once before, 15 years ago, which I meticulously documented back then.

Extremely rare storm “ALPHA” formed at the exact “BEGINNING” of the Jewish New Year. Jesus said: “I am the ALPHA and the Omega, the BEGINNING and the end.” (Rev. 22:13)  (Sept. 18th, 4:30 PM GMT — the eve of the New Year)

The whole Alpha-Beta!

Incredibly, tropical storm”Beta” formed next shortly after Alpha at 4 PM CDT, (Sept. 18th). This is just before evening and thus just before the Jewish New Year according to this timezone (in the Gulf, near Texas). (The New Year begins at sunset, Sept. 18th.)

Alpha“, “Beta“!

Jesus is the complete alphabeta if you would, from beginning to end! He is the entire alphabet from Alpha to Omega!

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. (Rev. 22:13)

So then, to complete the sign that the whole Greek alphabet is symbolic of Himself — the Word of God, and that all else will pass away– what does God do?

The Meteorological Organization does the unthinkable — It does away with the entire Greek alphabet!

What a forceful way of declaring that “Heaven and Earth”, Iota and every other letter, could have passed away on March 17th, 2021 if God wanted to follow the prophetic pattern of cutting short the 490th Shmita (since Israel entered the Promised Land), (Cf., Dan. 9, Rev. 10).

Impacts from Eta and Iota were severe enough that those names have formally retired by the Hurricane Committee.  There was no formal plan for retiring Greek names, and the future use of these names would be inappropriate.  World Meterorological Org

Or put in simple English, Eta and Iota “formally” passed away, however, the entire Greek Alphabet used as a list of names when the regular names are exhausted will also no longer.

March 2021 could have been The End.

Were you ready if it had?

Were you still running the race?

Or has Covid cooled your heart and slowed your pace?

2Peter 3:9-13

 9The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.  That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

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.


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 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.

Pi on 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.)
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

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)
