I hope everyone had a good New Year. Something I noticed about the numbers for 2022 was that if you view the zero as a separator, it could be seen as 2.22, which reminds me of what True Love means to God. Number triplicates mean a full amplification of what the number means, which is why 666, a triplicate of the number for man (6), means a full corruption of man.
222, though, means full or perfect love, since two means love. You might think that all number triplicates have a bad meaning, but that is not so. Numbers are like words that can be used in different contexts - they can have good, bad, or neutral meanings.
For example Christ’s name in Greek ( Ἰησοῦς ) has a value of 888, which means “full or absolute renewal/resurrection,” since the number eight means renewal and resurrection. And Christ’s English name, Jesus, as well as one of His titles, Messiah, both have Old English values of 444, and since four means hope, 444 would mean “full or absolute hope”.
However, 444 is also the Old English value for Lucifer. Why should God work language so that Lucifer, another name for Satan, has the same value of 444? We’ll have to remember that Satan was first an archangel of God and Lucifer means “light-bearer, shining one, or morning star”. The name refers to being bright and shining as we often imagine angels to be, and they are also messengers for God who bring or bear His light by bearing messages from God.
In fact, the Greek word for “angel” (ángelos) in the New Testament means “messenger”. So you might view Lucifer’s 444 as the reverse of Christ’s 444 to mean “full corruption of hope” in the case of Satan.
Now that you can see how number triplicates can have different meaning in different contexts, we’ll go back to True or Perfect Love with 222. I also want to say that “love” in this context is more than romantic love. It refers to a more general sense of “agape” love for everyone, which is better stated as “love and charity.”
It was many years ago that the Lord guided me to Genesis 2:22 and its link to 222 and love. That verse is the first occurrence of the 222 triplicate for “full or perfect love” in the Bible. It’s where God makes Eve to be with Adam after seeing he needed a wife and companion. Genesis 2:22’s link to 222 shows God’s full love for Adam, which he did not need to do anything to receive.
The full love shown in Genesis 2:22 is only half the picture of what true love means to God, though, as it also goes with the next time the 222 triplicate occurs in the Bible with Genesis 22:2. That verse is the very first occurrence of the word “love” in the Bible and shows that faithful obedience to God completes true love for Him – acting in obedience to God’s commands as Abraham did in Genesis 22:2 is a part of true, full love for God.
In recent weeks, the Lord has given me some very big reminders that I am overworked and need to remember my past, many years ago, when being an artist and romantic were big parts of my personality. Being a minister in the last 13 years took me farther away from making art and especially from unrealistic romantic ways of seeing the world. However, God notes in Ecclesiastes 3 there is a time for everything – “a time to plant and a time to uproot... a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh... a time to embrace and a time to shun embracing” (Ecclesiates 3:2-5).
And in guidance related to more numbers recently, God told me again to stop self-neglect and focus on art and personal happiness. You’ll be amazed at how God did this. In years past, He had the number 272 pop up in a young Christian’s life many times until he asked me what it meant. I told him it meant “love and obey” (from 2) “me” as a minister (from 72), since two means “love and righteous obedience” and I was born in 1972, so the 72 referred to me and my counsel.
This young Christian had problems with getting rid of sin and darkness, from both the ways of the world and the church that taught incorrectly. But then in later years, the Lord also popped up 272 in my own life to tell me to "love myself" - stop working so hard and taking care of others while I neglect myself.
And in recent weeks, God gave me a very big reminder that goes with this 222 full love guidance. He had 272 pop up some more times in a rebuke to me related to creativity, romance, business, and Ireland. It is a long story with details I won’t repeat here (for details, see The Lord said, Let no one argue and let no one rebuke), but at about the same time God gave me more 272 nudges, I saw a new PBS Nova episode that showed a galaxy cluster named ARP 273 (image below).
Now having had a lot of guidance with 272 and some also with 273, the galaxy cluster caught my interest. It is called the Rose Galaxy, which is actually two colliding galaxies that form the outline of a rose blossom. But what’s even more amazing is that the style of the rose shown in ARP 273 closely matches how I used to draw roses since my young years as an artist. Compare the rose on the left below, which I drew from a freehand drawing, with another image of the ARP 273 cluster scaled to the same size. It's not hard to see the similarities.
It was a year or two ago that I noted God guiding me with 273 as the logical sequence from 272. It represented coming out of my self-neglect in 272 and finding personal happiness. Combining this with ARP 273’s numbering to go with this personal guidance, I saw that God gave me a very big reminder to stop self-neglect and focus on personal happiness. This goes along with the 222 in Genesis 2:22 and God’s love for us as individuals as opposed to as a People.
So since I got these very big reminders, after all, no one but the Lord could move whole galaxies in a personal message like this, I’ve tried to do less work and more things for enjoyment. However, I have to admit I haven’t been very successful, because something always comes up I need to handle, like now I’m in Florida helping my mother with her retirement home.
But while I’ve been here, the Lord has given me things to wonder and joy in, like the Christmas Star constellation I’m tracking now (see Following God’s 2021 Christmas Star), and just yesterday when I was worshipping at a small beach in Sarasota, I was led to yet another reminder of romantic things.
After I had finished worship, a young married couple with a newborn baby, talked to me, and the man told me I shouldn’t miss seeing Marina Jack while I was there. I made a note to go see the giant statue there, which I imagined to be something like our Minnesotan Paul Bunyan and Babe, the Blue Ox.
My meeting this couple appeared to be God’s orchestration, because he also noted to me that he had a fortune cookie that didn’t have a fortune in it, and he wanted me to replace it with a prayer. I did that for them and told them how I don’t like fortune cookies because they can invite divination, which is a sin.
Seeking prophecy and guidance from sources other than God are sins related to idolatry, because we are being unfaithful to God by seeking guidance from sources that are not of Him, like divination done in tarot cards, Ouija boards, by fortune tellers, astrologists, mediums, and spiritualists. God doesn’t want His People to use those things, as He said, "When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritualists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?" (Isaiah 8:19).
God gave the couple an empty fortune cookie in preparation to meeting me and what I’d say about it. Praise Him for that! Then after leaving the beach, I went to find Marina Jack and was surprised to see the statue was a giant sculpture depiction of the famous photograph of the kiss celebrating the end of World War II (photo below). Hmmm, I thought, another romantic reminder from God?
I took some photos of the statue (below) and knew being guided there was a reminder of love and God’s love for us that also appears in the numbers for this year, 2022. The world is weary from the last two years of the pandemic, and though I know the troubles of these times are not finished, God gives us hope and reminders that there is still a time for love and personal happiness.
Now, I also said God reminded me of Ireland in recent time as well. It was shown in the IMEI number for a new business phone I recently got (photo below), which goes with my creative business in Aching Prosperity and symbolizes a connection my ministry and creative work have to the world.
If you’ve seen what I’ve shared about how God has moved the world to give and affirm spiritual guidance (see Where The Fairytale Is Real for more examples), you’ll know this is a regular occurrence for me. This time, if you look at the phone's IMEI number, you'll see it starts with 353, which has reminded me of Ireland since I found out years ago that their phone area code is 353.
God even had me link the Christmas Star I saw this Christmas to Kings Bay here in Florida, in which there is also a “King’s Bay” in my Irish adventure novel, Aching Prosperity (see Following God’s 2021 Christmas Star for more), which I had not intentionally orchestrated. God did it through extraordinary means, and obviously, He is reminding me of the story in Aching Prosperity as well now, which also has a love story in it.
2022 appears to be a year for renewal with God’s love in it. The Lord bless your year with His lovingkindness as well, through Christ Jesus. Amen.
