2.32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call
on the name of the LORD shall be delivered : for in mount Zion and in
Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant
whom the LORD shall call.
The film is concerned with the
Second Coming of Christ and
his character in the film opens the Seven Seals.In
the Book of Revelation, it is the seven angels who open the Seven
The film is interesting and well-conceived, although
it did badly at the box office. Perhaps it was just too intellectual,
- no bombs or missiles blowing people to kingdom come, not a single car
chase, almost no violence and no sex
! It is rarely mentioned in reviews of Demi Moore’s history.
By 'coincidence', she happened to be
pregnant at the time with her first child which is perhaps one of the main
reasons why she got the part. Of course she was fairly easy on the eye too.
implied in film that she is supposed to be a
reincarnation of Mary Magdalen. Unfortunately, at the end, the film
deteriorates into a standard Hollywood ‘happy ending’ and Abby dies to save
the world ‘because she has so much love’. God supposedly gives man another
But there are many elements in the film which
relate to the real world, the times in which we live. Just as although
Morgan Robertson’s novel Futility
had many elements of the Titanic disaster, it wasn’t an exact
description of what was to come. In like manner, The Seventh Sign has many
elements of what is to come.
The script writers were
truly inspired. How did they come to choose the number 229? It turns out to
be a key number in the
Enigma Codes of Destiny, for it appears to be the key code for the End
of the World.
Several events were to occur linking
229 into the physical world of space and time in the next few
years. The first was less than two hours after we left the cinema whilst
looking up the biblical references in the study in our Scottish Borders
farmhouse. The End of the World is also referred to as The Great Day of His
Wrath in Revelation 6.17. This particular verse Revelation 6.17
For the great day of his wrath is come and
who shall be able to stand?
It just happens to be on page
229 of the Scottish
King James version of the Bible. We lived in Scotland at the time. The
English editions of the King James bible have a totally different
pagination. For some reason it is the Scottish
Bibles which are emphasised in our research. The rare
King Edward VIII Bible, part
of the evidence in this world for reality of communication from the spirits
of the dead, and its purpose, was also a Scottish Bible.
It was nearly ten months later that the next dramatic
coincidence occurred. We had moved to Epsom in Surrey and had had difficulty
getting a copy of the video of the film. I happened to locate one at 10 pm
on 22nd September 1989 - 22.9.89 - but the shop had just closed. I went back
the next day and joined the video club. The computer allocated me the
membership number 2297 !!! How much more precision could you have?
The plot of the film revolves around the coincidences of
229 and its title was The Seventh Sign and it is concerned with the
Seven Seals, the Seven Angels and the Seven Spirits of God.
Some fifteen months later, we came across an ex-rental
copy of The Seventh Sign video for sale. It was 19th January 1991, two days
after the first Gulf War began. On 13th January, I had used my
coincidence codes to calculate the date of the start of the Gulf War. This
prophecy was proved correct around 2.30 am on 17th January. Who knows, it
could even have been 2.29? Jenny found the copy.
We were both astonished. We had gone into the video
shop because we had noticed its address - 557 London Road, North Cheam. 557
was the first code that, on 2nd December 1988, had prophesied the Lockerbie
disaster, barely a week after we saw The Seventh Sign.
Lockerbie and 557, to understand the significance of this.
Remembering the earlier experience of the video club membership
number, I decided to join this video club. Quite incredibly, I was given the
membership number 2293.And it was our third encounter with the film - the
first was seeing the film, the second was renting the video and now the
third was buying the video.
(Note also a link to another
relevant film, Alternative 3). To fully understand how we came
to be in the right place at the right time and the high level of
interconnectedness in of all this, it will be necessary to read the full
account given in. Volume 1 of 'The Enigma Variations'.
This is merely a summary outline of some of the main
meaningful coincidences involving this film.
There is one final,
some might say eerie coincidence.
But weird is a better word. It derives from an old English word,
wyrd meaning to do with destiny fate or the supernatural. We
have to look back again to the heroine
of the film and her baby. In the film, Abby’s baby was due on
29th February of some leap year. Demi’s baby was born on 16th August,
1988 and named Rumer. It is an unremarkable date, you might think, until you
realise that it is the 229th day of the leap year
1988 when the film was
released. Don't forget that the baby's father,
Bruce Willis, died to save the world in the 1999 film Armageddon.
It must run in the blood. What a giving family. Or perhaps the
patterns are just there to make a few thinking people wonder, about
inspiration, destiny and the existence of God.
Can it possibly
really be all just chance?
Or is it all intended to be part of the evidence of intelligent design?
PS Dictation finished, 17th January 2004, 9.36.00
I noticed the time as I inserted 2293 card image into this page for the
first time. It was 1229am on 19th January 2004, 13 years to the day since
getting the card. I had intended to finish this page this morning, but other
changes took too long. Then it came to me to revise the Enigma Web Log site,
so I spent the afternoon and evening doing that. So I ended up doing this
page now. Perhaps I was meant to. Finishing it like this echoes the
theme that 'The Seventh Sign' has a relevance to Now

This was not the first link to the end
of the world in our research, but it was the most dramatic. The first
concrete link came for me in July 1985, when my psychical research was in
its infancy. I moved into a company flat at No. 507A Kings Road in
Chelsea, for a fairly brief sojourn. The area is called World's End.
At the time the phrase had no significance for me. But is it another
indication of destiny, kismet? The name of the Local Pub is
appropriately enough the World's End. On my return for a visit to
Chelsea in 1992, I noticed that the address of the World's End pub is No.
458 King's Road . Those of you whose brains have not atrophied from
over-reliance on i-pods and cell-phones, or suffered from modern theories of
education, will be able to divide 458 by 2 and see that the result is 229.
And code 2229 linking into Dan Brown's novel Angels and Demons, and the
physicist trying to prove the existence of God, was very prominent in my
final return visit to Chelsea in March 2006. But there was an
even stranger coincidence across the
street from the World's End pub........... It is all powerful evidence
of inspiration, destiny and Intelligent Design.
For more strange coincidences re Code
229, and the End Times, see
Evidence. It discusses the strange recurrence of that code in
connection with the Sumatra Tidal Wave of 26th December, 2004.
For many death came On the Beach, just as at the start of The
Seventh Sign. That film began on Christmas Day. In that part
of the world, it was still Christmas Day in 2004, when the Tidal wave struck
in Sumatra, on the morning of the feast of St Stephen. The death toll
was of truly biblical proportions.

Incidentally, the Victorian painter
John Martin painted a huge canvas portraying
The Great Day of His Wrath.
That painting, together with his vision of
The Last Judgement was
brought to my attention one day in the Tate Gallery in London in March 1991.
16/09/2007 18:57:42 The computer clock showed
5.57pm after I added that last paragraph, so I inserted the Date & Time.
The idea came that I should link interested readers to another element in
the World's End theme. Why Front Page adds an hour I do not know.
Code 742 is the 3rd World's End Code.
I added the reference to weird today 3rd June 2008,
itself very much a destiny day. A fortnight ago Jenny went to look for a
book with the title Positively Wyrd.
It was very weird what happened next... The 229 links
keep emerging as well as evidence of destiny and design....
