I was looking for number 17 but Brad ties 16 and 17. Wow! What a way to show me how to follow Your instructions in the meaning of numbers 16-17. What a clue to proceed as per Your will. Quote:
The Numbers Sixteen and Seventeen
The Number Sixteen
The number sixteen appears some 23 times in scripture. For the most part, it refers to the numbers of offspring or the reign of kings. I believe that this number speaks of love and there are a couple of occurrences that I wish to highlight. For example, in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, there are sixteen things said about love, and of course, this is the famous ‘love’ chapter, even though verses 8-12 are some of the most divisive verses commented on in the ‘church’. The sixteenth time Sha’ul’s name is mentioned in scripture is in Acts 15:25:
The Number Seventeen
Victory and resurrection and rest. It is clear to all that call on the name of Yahshua that His resurrection was victory for all and the beginning of our rest in Him.

It comes when You reveal to each one of us that we are Royalty—Kings and Priests, quote:
1 Peter 2:9
9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [the Almighty’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. [Exo 19:5-6]
- But! Up to the day of Your revelation we are the ‘Lost Sheep of Isarael’ unbeknown to most of us.

O my Master! I’m frightened! The silence from my children plus Ahmad’s absence is taking its toll on me. Coupled with the reading of Revelations from chpater 6 to 22 plus the dream I just dreamed? Frightening!
- The dream was kind of vague. It seems that we were chatting in a room. Suddenly! We got news that my dead mom was detained for questioning at the airport. Then, there were several people mingling around and my Robin was standing dressed in black, I asked if she had heard? She answered, “only an hour ago.” I woke up.
- Ahmad promised to visit today. All day long I waited for his visit in vain. At 4:35 pm I hear thunder. Closed and unplug computer. Went to bed. Slept for a couple of hours. Had that dream. I got up but then went back to bed. I wept for my children and for Ahmad.
- Still hoping for Ahmad to show up. Maybe I dozed off. I just laid there weeping. After a while his young son came in with food. No Ahmad. No call. Such disapointment! I did not ask anything. I did not even get out of bed.
- After a while it came to me look up for the meaning of someone dressed in black. The meaning that I found frigntened me some more.
- I wanted to talk to someone for comfort. Then I said, “I don’t need to talk to anyone. I need to talk to You.”
O My Master! You Alone Are The One To Comfort Me …
