Mars Hill Church: Strange Coincidence #2

Just minutes ago, I went to the Mars Hill Church website for the first time, only because I was curious about it.  If I beleive in coincidences, the timer on this countdown was a coincidence.  By no means did I intend to visit the website at this point on the timer, because I had no idea a timer would even greet me.  The reason I just visited the website, was because I recently drove by a location in Interbay/Ballard, WA, and it seemed extremely busy with young couples and singles.  Before today, I didn't know anything about the Mars Hill Church website.  If you go to the site, you will find this countdown screen until their upcoming event which will take place on January 12, 2014

The numerology of that date is as follows.

1/12/2014 = 1+1+2+2+0+1+4 = 11, the number of the antichrist, as the Occult would say.  Also, possibly just a coincidence.

The date concludes 40 days of prayer, and the expansion of their faith to Phoenix, AZ, a city located on the 33rd parallel.  Now, the numerology of the date, equaling 11, becomes more interesting.  Is it all symbolic?  Or just sheer coincidence?  The Church planting in Phoenix will mark the fifth state the Church has joined.  Prior to Arizona, Mars Hill was located in Washington, Oregon, California and New Mexico.  Five is the amount of points on a pentagram, the Occult symbol for the Pythagoreans, and later philosophers and magicians.  Think Pentagon.

Right now, I'm stunned by the coincidence of the time I arrived at the site.  Also, from my own personal living experience, the three cities I've lived in during my lifetime are Portland, OR (located in the 33rd state), Phoenix, AZ (located on the 33rd parallel) and Seattle, WA, where the roots of the Mars Hill Church are.  I actually did not realize that last point on the Mars Hill Church until just visiting their site.

Life is strange.  This is the second strange coincidence in my life since November 18, 2013.  This one doesn't seem as significant, but it still seems meaningful.  Currently, I am going through this belief that somehow Christianity as a religion is being used to manipulate and deceive the masses for the ill purposes of the ruling elite, and to support war and most of the things that are wrong with the world.  Please also know, I do not believe Christianity is the only religion being used to deceive the masses in such a way- it just seems the Christian wing of it is the most violent.

In my most recent research, I decided to visit the Mars Hill Church website to learn about what they offer, as it seems they target a young audience.  At least in my lifetime, it is the youngest church population, and a busy population at that, that I've seen.  Anyway, I just began to conduct the research, and I came across this countdown screen.  I couldn't believe what time it was.  When I first arrived, the second hand was on 35.  By the time I found Print Screen, it was on 33.  Some things, maybe they're just meant to be.

Another interesting fact about me, is that I was born on July 21, 1983.  I lived the 11,000 day of my life on exactly September 1, 2013.  Coincidence?  Maybe.  Revelation 21:7, which corresponds with my birthday, I also find a strange coincidence.  But one that gives me hope.  And that is what you need, some hope.  Even in the darkness, there is hope.  Without darkness there is no light, I heard it somewhere, I think it's true!  I'll close with this Revelation 21:7, birthday coincidence.  If you've never read the Bible, Revelation is the end chapter, in which the "rapture" as it has come to be called takes place.  Revelation 21 is the second to last of 22 components completing the Book of Revelation.  Revelation 21:7 is where it is declared what the worthy will be entitled to.  The 21st of the 7th month is my birthday.

Revelation 21:7
New International Version
Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
New Living Translation
All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.
English Standard Version
The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
New American Standard Bible
"He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.
King James Bible
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Holman Christian Standard Bible
The victor will inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son.
International Standard Version
The person who conquers will inherit these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son.
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
“And he who is victorious shall inherit these things, and I shall be his God and he will be my son.”
American King James Version
He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Young's Literal Translation
he who is overcoming shall inherit all things, and I will be to him -- a God, and he shall be to me -- the son.

To put things in perspective... Revelation 21:8
King James Version
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
New Living Translation
but cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.
Don't get it twisted, I'm not a Bible thumper.  I'm just someone who has always tried to live a moral life for a higher purpose, while that higher purpose has remained an unknown to me.  I've just had this feeling, there is something worthy about doing what is right.  Maybe things are coming into clarity with each passing day.  Time will tell what is further unveiled.
