The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God.
Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God,
the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God;
and I will also write on them my new name.
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
"The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life — only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father." [John 10:17-18]
I get that everyone thinks I'm nuts in espousing I believe I'm the second coming of Christ, i.e., the reincarnation of Jesus of Nazareth. (God is really going out of his way to mislead me if that's not the case, as you'll see below!)
Almost nothing is known about why pigmented birthmarks (moles or nevi) occur in particular locations of the skin. The causes of most birth defects are also unknown. About 35% of children who claim to remember previous lives have birthmarks and/or birth defects that they (or adult informants) attribute to wounds on a person whose life the child remembers. The cases of 210 such children have been investigated. The birthmarks were usually areas of hairless, puckered skin; some were areas of little or no pigmentation (hypopigmented macules); others were areas of increased pigmentation (hyperpigmented nevi). The birth defects were nearly always of rare types. In cases in which a deceased person was identified the details of whose life unmistakably matched the child's statements, a close correspondence was nearly always found between the birthmarks and/or birth defects on the child and the wounds on the deceased person. In 43 of 49 cases in which a medical document (usually a postmortem report) was obtained, it confirmed the correspondence between wounds and birthmarks (or birth defects). There is little evidence that parents and other informants imposed a false identity on the child in order to explain the child's birthmark or birth defect. Some paranormal process seems required to account for at least some of the details of these cases, including the birthmarks and birth defects. [Birthmarks and Birth Defects Corresponding to Wounds on Deceased Persons, Prof. Ian Stevension, June 1992]Quite frankly, I prefer it this way because being "world savior" is a tall order, but, nevertheless, at some point I believe I'll make a significant difference that could very well effect the salvation of humanity from the "Evil One". Thus far, however, I've not made much tangible progress, and I'm sure that's God's will for which I'm grateful for my personal sake but frustrated for the world's sake in that I don't see how the TRUTH will overcome the LIES that dominate this world misleading us into eventual subjugation and/or destruction. Whether God likes it or not, for my personal sake I'd prefer to change His plan for the End of HIStory at this point as I love my life, my family and my country (even sinful as it is), and I don't want harm to come our way! Apparently, however, I have no control over the Script(ures). It is as it's written.
That being blogged, recently God's led me to consider the relevance of my name, and this has led to some interesting discoveries related to my possibly being the Messiah that I'd like to share.
What led me down this path of self-discovery are the following two videos that are well worth watching IMHO:
So the upshot of these two videos is the following:
God ==> YHWH ==> "Behold the hand. Behold the nail." (See the image above?)
Jesus ==> Yeshua ==> "The One who creates - the One who destroys - the One who secures and the One who knows you and wishes you to experience HIM!" (The "One", like in The Matrix)
I thought that these insights into the meaning of names was pretty profound, so I decided to take a closer look at my own name: Jay Adams.
Let's start with "Jay". Here's the meaning of my first name in four languages:
- English: Form Of Jason, Healer
- German: Swift
- Hindi: Victory, A Bird
- Sanskrit: Victorious
That's all fine and good, but I'm more interested in the Hebrew (biblical) meaning. In Hebrew, Jay is a pet name for Jacob:
In the Old Testament, Jacob (later called Israel) is the son of Isaac and Rebecca and the father of the twelve founders of the twelve tribes of Israel. He was born holding his twin brother Esau's heel, and his name is explained as meaning "holder of the heel" or "supplanter" [BehindTheName.com]Now this is a little more interesting since, if I'm the second coming of Christ, I'm like a twin to Jesus coming after him some 2000 years later. What's more interesting is that Jacob is considered a supplanter of his older twin brother Esau, as the story goes, because Esau sold his birthright to Jacob. Similarly, I'm here in the world to supplant Jesus, undeservedly (I'm a sinner as sin seems to be defined by Christians) have his birthright and am here to receive Christ's inheritance from our Father! What's more, Jacob was renamed by God as Israel and he fathered the twelve tribes of the Jewish nation. If I am the Messiah, then this implies I'm the descended (via reincarnation), anointed King of Israel first and foremost.
So that's pretty neat, but what of my surname "Adams"? Per Wiki:
Adams is a common surname of English and Scottish origin, meaning "son of Adam".It's interesting what this implies since another word for "Adam", i.e., the first human in the Garden of Eden, is humankind or "man". In other words, my last name effectively means: "Son of Man", the most common self-referencing term used by Jesus Christ according to the four Gospels.
While researching all this, I was led on to Gematria, the ancient Jewish practice of converting names into numbers in order to calculate their essence:
Gematria is an Assyro-Babylonian system of numerology later adopted by Jews that assigns numerical value to a word or phrase in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other or bear some relation to the number itself as it may apply to a person's age, the calendar year, or the like. [Wiki]This is where things got really weird.
The significance of Gematria to eschatology is well known and tied mainly to a famous passage from the Bible's Book of Revelation:
The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666. [Revelation 13:15-18]This led many to suspect that Nero was the Antichrist since his name added up to 666 using Gematria.
What if this passage was actually intended by God for the current age? If so, then Ashley Greene is apparently someone to watch out for! (Or Michele Bachmann in English gematria....eerie!)
Curious....I plugged my own name, "Jay Adams", into an online Gematria calculator.
The top search result for Jewish Gematria was "Aquarius Sun Sign". I thought this curious since in astrology we are leaving the Age of Pisces (represented by the fish in Christian lore) and are purportedly now entering the Age of Aquarius.
The second popular search result that came up for the Jewish Gematria results was: English Gematria System. Very well, so I focused in on the English Gematria results which gives my name the number 444.
Low and behold, I found: Jesus, Y'shua, Joshua, Jewish, Messiah, Menorah, Gospel, Preacher, Parables, Nailed On, Cross, Hand of God, Great I Am, God and a man, A Redeemer, Ruler, The King, The Omega, Finished, Simple, English, Gematria, Code of God, A Number, The Key, The Lock, Occult, etc.
[Importantly, please note that the words/phrases "Gematria", "Messiah" and "Great I Am" generate the same values using the Jewish and English Gematria calculators, i.e., 233 and 444. This is a highly improbable coincidence and of seeming relative significance, i.e., maybe this implies that Gematria is the key to discovering the Messiah and Great I Am. (BTW, in Simple Gematria 233 generates "The Lord Jesus Christ".) Also consider that "English Gematria System", which comes up under my name from the Jewish Gematria calculator, has two words, English and Gematria, that generate 444 in English Gematria. This also is highly improbable, maybe signifying that "Jay Adams" and English Gematria are critical in unlocking the Gematria/Messiah puzzle. Lastly, note that "House of David" comes up in the Jewish Gematria results for my name further suggesting this is all about discovering the effective Jewish Messiah/King.]
[Note that for standard numerology, 444 => 4+4+4=12 => 12 tribes of Israel, 12 disciples, etc. => 1+2=3 => the Trinity. Also note that the presence of the name "Lucifer" should not necessarily be considered an omen since Jesus is referred to as "Lucifer", i.e., the Morning Star, and the connection of Lucifer to the devil is a misnomer. Furthermore, consider that 444 in Jewish Gematria generates "Ieosus", the Latin spelling of Jesus, "The Second Coming" and "fourth". Fourth is interesting in that the fourth book of the Old Testament is Numbers (get it?) and the fourth book of the New Testament is John which opens, "The Word Became Flesh: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Furthermore, "Word" in English Gematria generates Four, Holy, Teacher, Believe, Found, The Code, Megiddo, Second and Replace. As for "four", contemplate 444, the four Gospels and how WORD, WORK, WEEK and YEAR each consist of 4 letters (I know that last point is a little weak, but follow me). The Fourth Commandment is to keep the Sabbath which fits into the Jonathan Cahn/2015 Sabbatical year aspect of my work, i.e., man's six days/millenniums of work are nearly complete and a millennial "day" of rest is set to begin. After all, that's why I'm here now if this analysis is correct!]
Considering this, I assembled the following paragraph drawn from 444 results in English Gematria:
Is A NUMBER (444) - 444 - THE KEY (444) in ENGLISH (444) GEMATRIA (444) to open THE LOCK (444) of the CODE OF GOD (444) in the OCCULT (444)?
The GOSPEL (444) is about a PREACHER (444) of PARABLES (444) who was the JEWISH (444) MESSIAH (444). He claimed to be A REDEEMER (444) and RULER (444) - THE KING (444) of A KINGDOM (444) - brought forth by A MAN AND GOD (444), and his name was JESUS (444) [Y'SHUA (444) / JOSHUA (444)]!
BTW, my name is JAY ADAMS (444). Am I the GREAT I AM (444) & THE OMEGA (444)? Is my birthmark on the HAND OF GOD (444) reflecting where I was NAILED ON (444) the CROSS (444) in my past life?
I sincerely hope not, but I guess it is what it is.
I found this all so astonishing, I searched for videos on Gematria and 444 and, sure enough, there were some put up, of which the following was my favorite:
I'd be the first to admit I don't think I'm qualified for the job of redeeming mankind and am apparently doing quite poorly at 'saving the world'. After all, aren't I supposed to come on the clouds with great glory and the whatnot?
There's cloud-computing and all that, but I really don't think this will cut the cheese with what most Christians expect or, more so, demand. Then again, who are such folk to think they can tell God how this story, how HIStory (which could very well be MY story), is supposed to be written? After all, coming on clouds with great glory seems rather, well, arrogant and ostentatious. This blogging bit seems like a preferable route for the time being since you are required to think for yourself and I KNOW this is what God wants in utter opposition to what the Antichrist is planning to impose. Hey, but I'm here to upset the Evil One's diabolical plan if only people would believe in me instead of Satan's lies...
I did some basic statistical analysis of the "444" connection between my name, "Jay Adams", and words related to Messiah/Jesus, and the odds against this meaningful Gematria cluster occurring could be conservatively estimated at more than a quadrillion (1 followed by 15 zeros) to one (figuring the odds of each significant match are 100 to 1, like noted in the YouTube video above). Amazingly, if we counted all of the 23 matches used in the mock paragraph I created above, the odds would be at least quattuordecillion (1 followed by 45 zeros) to one. However, to be conservative, let's only consider the most meaningful and obvious eight matches: Jesus, Y'shua, Joshua, Jewish, Messiah, Gospel, Preacher & Cross. (BTW, regarding these mind-boggling odds, keep in mind how my name triggers "English Gematria System" in Jewish Gematria. Those familiar with statistics will understand the importance of this since, if counted, the odds calculated above would go off the chart.)
Given that 45 billion people have been born since Jesus was crucified, this makes it a pretty solid bet that I'm the Second Coming....for whatever that's worth. (Unless, that is, there's another "Jay Adams" with a diamond-shaped birthmark on their hand(s). LOL!)
Finally, note that in the above analysis I didn't take into account weaker (more normal?) English Gematria results drawn from my first name "Jay", middle name "Paul" (yep!), surname "Adams" and my full name "Jay Paul Adams", e.g., Nail, INRI (==> "Jesus, King of the Jews"), Alpha, Jew, Kabbalah, Encoded, Biblical Gematria, Biblical, The Hebrew Bible, The Holy Land, A Seal, Judgment Day, America, Elul 29, Lion, The Spirit, Flesh & Coming Soon.
