15. Good work - 15th line
Australia began the year 2013 with an unparalleled heatwave. Since publishing the previous chapter many long standing records regarding the weather have been broken. In our part of the world hot, windy weather increases the fire danger.
On the day of publishing the previous chapter our city not only reached the forecast 44 degrees Centigrade (111.2 Fahrenheit), but Adelaidians sweltered during a 45 degrees (113 F) scorcher. It was the 4th hottest day ever recorded. Thankfully, the few fires that raged that day in South Australia were brought under control. Damage could have been far worse, and no lives were lost.
Unfortunately, the island state of Tasmania experienced one of its worst bushfires in half a century. On January 4th. 2013 the township of Dunalley was almost wiped out, as some media reports put it. Over 120 properties were lost. Much bushland and animals were burned, not only in this region, but all over Tasmania. One consolation, thankfully, no lives were lost. (For two days unconfirmed reports were broadcast that one person was missing. It was never confirmed.)
Three days later the heat was on in earnest in our most populated state, New South Wales. Weather forecasters predicted high temperatures and strong winds. The worst was expected for January 8th. Conditions were categorized as catastrophic. Hundreds of fires broke out all over the state.
As I write, in the afternoon of January 12th, 2013 conditions are again extreme in New South Wales and our capital Canberra. Many fires are still burning, some out of control. Other fires are expected to flare up. Thankfully, as if a miracle has taken place, no lives have been lost in any fires. (Unlike on 7.2.09, when Australia experienced its worst natural disaster ever, mourning the death of 173 people on the outskirts of Melbourne, Victoria.)
On January 9th, 2013 God woke me early, as HE has done many times. That day it was unusually early, 3.48 am. Thoughts came, numbers flew around in my head. Suddenly 144 made sense, together with the word - seven. I emailed TV Channel 7 and Channel 9. I felt what I had to say was an important message, so I timed it that both emails were sent at 7.09 AM.
It was rather weird, having sent a rather important email to two different recipients in Sydney, within a minute of leaving my house later that morning, the first vehicle I noticed was a truck, rego plate SAD... 79.
A few moments later, parked south of the Parafield Airport, in a spot where normally no vehicles park, a parked bus stood out. It was not a registration plate, but its number 2502. Why was I taking notice? Earlier on the TV News I had noticed that Adelaide and Sydney both had maximum 25 deg. that day.
I found the seven discovery in above email even more remarkable, since I had ended the previous chapter with seven. About a week later, the word-number seven opened in another, very simple way. I can't recall, ever having viewed it like that - See v n.
Around that time my wife and I went to a screening of the latest 3D Movie The Life of Pi. Readers may fear I shall be driving their mind crazy with mathematical link from Pi (3.14159) to seven. No, not numbers, but a name in the movie, which I heard in the news a day later, did it. Two Australian men had died in Laos from drug a overdose. Their names were the start of my linking thinking:
Q: How did I arrive at HE IN?
A: The main character in The Life of Pi is a tiger named (Richard) PARKER / PARKIN (Play the letter elimination game).
But there was more: Since the letters Pi are also numbers (NOS), how could I not turn it around >>> id.
I particularly loved one segment in this H/Bollywood Academic Oscar Globe Award Nomination Bockbluster Movie, where the script includes the scripture John 3, 16. Loved it.
The missing D story started when my wife and I decided to go shopping for outdoor furniture. We bought a table and 4 chairs

On January 5, the day after Adelaide's 4th hottest day ever, the number 4 made a rather unusual appearance. It was also on radio, the car radio, where I had tuned into our ethnic broadcaster EBI FM 103.1. The program, as I understood, was relayed via Radio Austria 4. Driving on Adelaide's Anzac Highway, on Jan 5th, 13 a song aired with these lyrics: 'Schau beim Autofahren, nicht auf die huebschen Maedchen..." (or words similar).
The DJ on Radio Austria 4 gave a website, which I later looked up and saw? ... Numbers, what else? I was not searching for or trying, but (ignoring the first three digits) their phone number ended in 1 53 2 51 00 - the date 1.5.2013 and 50 left over. (Would be better if that 50 had a $ sign in front - just after Christmas and 3 birthdays in the first 5 days of the new year!)
That day, the very next day after publishing Chapter 14, which ends with the number 7, I had an encounter with just that number. Riding my 'Mission' bike at Brighton, an Adelaide beach-side suburb, famous among my earlier books, when a motor vehicle over took - rego plate 7 (no other digits or letters). Didn't I write earlier, I am being stalked by numbers? (There was another vehicle right behind 7. It consisted of letters only. The last three were - ...NOS.

"When things don't add up, I speak out." I had quoted this phrase many times in my earlier books. I must add - I also speak out when things do add up. A good example crossed my path in an unusual way. It came via Our Daily Bread (ODB) Bible reading. Was it pure chance what I saw or was it planned? And if so, by whom?
Two scripture passages, the readings for Jan. 7th and Jan 8th, written by two different authors, filled exactly one column of my bible - one at the top, the other right underneath. Best to take a look at this scan, where I highlighted the peculiar positioning with side-bars:
Faith Triumphs in Trouble
Left column of page 1102 - Romans 5:6-15 Left column of page 1166 - 2 Timothy 3.14-17
Friends, walking daily in the power of the Holy Spirit, following HIS promptings deep within, you will never be disappointed as to where HIS paths lead you. Good work will be the result, the natural fruit you will reap, in your daily life.

As if the Spirit leads me by a certain number, this happened on January 10th. It's not difficult to guess the number for that day - ten. It started with the weather reporter on Channel Seven, named GRANT. He was taking a flight, soaring in a light plane above the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. I wondered, why his entertaining weather forecasts one day was broadcast from a Sydney beach, but from South Australia's Flinders Ranges the next?
That day in January I searched online to replace the bicycle I had lost to thieves in San Francisco. I soon found one suitable. Not only was it in my price range, it was the same make and model I owned before. When I phoned the seller, his address immediately linked to the location of the earlier weather report by GRANT. Not only that, it was at No. 10 ... (I shall not disclose the street name to maintain privacy.)
It so happened that immediately after my online find I was to pick up a friend to take him for a doctor's appointment. It was in the same direction as the address I was to view my bike at. Arriving at my friends house, the number on the letterbox reminded me, he also lives at No.10 ...
Following his minor surgery at the doctor's, my mature-aged friend didn't mind driving with me to look at the Giant for sale. En route we briefly stopped at a bakery for coffee. Take a look, where we sat to have our coffee:
At Blackwood that day I bought the GIANT OCR. (I saw O and I saw R).
After above writing I have searched again and found the CD I had been looking for; what a blessing, the song title: Written in Red. Just like the letter O in above picture. Not only that, but the CD was produced by various SALVOS choirs.
Written in Red is number 14 on the CD, sung by the Warragul, (Victoria) Choir:
Written in Red
(by Gordon Jensen)
Let me end this chapter with another, easily read and understood, message. The numbers fit perfectly, (I550 in chapter 15) and so does the timing. Even the colour red is making an appearance, on a rather different kind of playing field - football.

Battling through life's struggles may seem like a forever endeavour. How assuring to know, when we die, we are entering a far better life, one that will last forever and ever !
