The Rapture, A Row Boat & The White Pelicans

The following are 2 text messages I sent to friends and family about 2 things that happened while I was conscious but I believe are nuggets of Hope to wait patiently and faint not for the coming Rapture of the Bride of Christ. This one was sent November 21, 2018

Sitting in the doctors office Tuesday morning waiting for my turn, a song I hadn’t heard or thought about in 40 years popped in my head

Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah

That was all I could remember of it, then I thought, I wonder what the song was about. My phone was on airplane mode so I wrote a note to remember to look it up

Last night I looked it up. God IS AMAZING! It’s a song about,

“Then you’ll hear the trumpet sound, Hallelujah!”

A Negro spiritual 1st noted at the American Civil War at St. Helena Island, off South Carolina.

It was sung by former slaves whose owners had abandoned the island before the Union navy arrived
William Francis Allen reported in 1863 that the former slaves sang the song as they rowed him in a boat across Station Creek

It was #1 song in 1961
Recorded by many artists, these 3 versions have the Trumpet verses in them

You will hear the Trumpet Sound

Peter, Paul & Mary

These are some of the original lyrics found in the wikipedia story,

Jordan stream is wide and deep.
Jesus stand on t’ oder side….

O de Lord he plant his garden deh.
He raise de fruit for you to eat.
He dat eat shall neber die

When de riber overflow.
O poor sinner, how you land?
Riber run and darkness comin’.
Sinner row to save your soul.
Michel, row the boat a-shore
Then you’ll hear the trumpet blow

Then you’ll hear the trumpet sound,
Trumpet sound the world around

Trumpet sound the jubilee
Trumpet sound for you and me

I think God gives us little things like this to keep our hopes up and mind focused on the prize that awaits us with the Trumpet sound from Heaven

Remember this from the text on the 17th,

After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I Heard Was Like A TRUMPET speaking with me, saying, “COME UP HERE, and I WILL SHOW YOU THINGS which must take place after this.”
Revelation 4:1 NKJV

‘Call to Me, and I WILL answer you, and SHOW YOU GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS, which you do not know.’
Jeremiah “33:3” NKJV

Stand fast therefore In The Liberty by which Christ has Made Us FREE, and Do NOT Be Entangled Again with a Yoke of Bondage.
Galatians 5:1 NKJV

Jesus Set Me FREE

א ת  Jesus Α Ω  א ת Jesus Α Ω  א ת Jesus Α Ω  א ת Jesus Α Ω  א ת Jesus Α Ω  א ת Jesus Α Ω

I am a crewboat captain and sent this text to on December 17, 2018 of an experience that also made me think “Stay Watchful, the Rapture is Imminent”


About 3 nights ago on my way out at the end of the Ivanhoe Canal channel I saw about 15 or 20 Snow White Pelicans on the water in my spot light. They got up and flew away as I got close to them. I thought that’s really odd.

Seeing pelicans is very normal, even groups of them together at times is normal too. But in the 8 years I’ve been working here, I can’t remember any other time of seeing Only White Pelicans in a group, much less that many.

So heading in towards the dock at the end of that nights work, when I approached the spot where I saw them I thought, “Lord, is there some meaning of those Snow White Pelicans?” Then a thought came, “those that have washed their robes and are white will fly away some day too”. Like in the Rapture.

This is the last part of today’s DailyBilble devotional reading of the day found here,

Bible Verse
DailyPlan : esv-study-bible : 2018-12-17 #Bible

Revelation 7
9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, CLOTHED IN WHITE ROBES, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

From the Michael Row the Boat text,
I think God gives us little things like this to keep our hopes up and mind focused on the prize that awaits us with the Trumpet sound from Heaven, and to meet our loved ones in the air

Now today is December 31, 2018 and I’m at work on my crewboat working the day shift. I download Youtube videos of sermons, music and other people whose channel I try to keep up with because of their sharing things they perceive about the “Signs of The Times” we are living in.

One person is HisHumbleServant333. We have a common revelation that occured to us that we believe was divinely orchestrated by God to get our attention repeatedly at 3:33 on the clock.

After lunch while checking out the engine room I was listening to some videos I downloaded before leaving for work this morning and this was what I heard when hers came on, “I was working out in my basement, and I was rowing, and I started to have a vision, as I was rowing….”


When she said, “the Holy Spirit said, ‘sing your song'”, if she would have said, “Michael Row The Boat Ashore”, I might have passed out or something!!!
