(I am working on a hefty post. When I have gotten that up, I will give you several pieces on my travels thus far. Meantime, I loved this little piece by our friend, Dan Lynch. He originally proposed it for “Ordinary Miracles,” but I thought it was better suited for signposts. It highlights the ancient Hebrews imputing symbolic meanings for various numbers. “7” represents perfection, as noted here. “6” represents imperfection, “3” represents fullness. Though it does not jump out to the modern eye, the ancient Hebrews would have immediately recognized the number of the beast, 666, as representing the fullness of imperfection. Several readers here have noted that God’s rainbow for Noah has seven colors – while the new gay flag rainbow only has six. I don’t know if God, the satan, or both are getting a chuckle out of the fact that the gay flag rainbow symbolizes imperfection as contrasted with the perfection of God’s rainbow. I know I got a chuckle from it. – CJ)

Recently I saw an amazing signpost from Jesus King of All Nations.
As I was driving on an Interstate highway through a southern state, I was thinking about a great celebration of faith that occurred at Manila in the Philippines in 1994 when I spoke on a stage before a congregation of over 1 million people.
We were celebrating the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the event began with a nationally televised procession of 75 large numbered statues of Our Lady, ending with the two images of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Jesus King of All Nations. Jesus was last bearing the number 77. It looked like He had a football jersey on.
As I recalled this event, I started praying to Jesus, “That was a great celebration and I was so happy that you bore the double perfect number of 77. Seven is the perfect number and you doubled it as a sign of your two perfect divine and human natures! Well done Jesus! Don’t ever let me forget to call #77 in an emergency.”
Just as I said that last sentence in my prayer, I looked past my wife out the car window and saw a road sign. It said, “In an Emergency Call # 77.” It did not say, “Call 911.” It said, “Call #77”, the double perfect number of Jesus King All Nations.
Jesus is always listening to our thoughts and prayers and waits for our call. But, don’t wait for an emergency to call upon Him, you can call upon Him now, just like I did, and He will be there for you!
