Happy New Year! 2023 has finally arrived, and we anxiously await to see what this year will bring. There seems to have been a theme to every year so far this decade. In 2020, it was COVID. In 2021, it was a controversial experimental vaccination. In 2022, it was the war in Ukraine and inflation. How long will we have to wait to see what the theme will be for 2023? If the previous three years have been any indication, it shouldn’t be long.
The biggest news in entertainment this month was the NFL playoffs, and we now know what two teams will be playing in the Super Bowl. It was definitely not the matchup I was anticipating, but the Chiefs and Eagles playing each other on Abraham Lincoln’s birthday does make some level of sense. The Eagles play their home games at Lincoln Financial Field. Abraham Lincoln was best known for the Emancipation Proclamation, which led to the freeing of slaves. Super Bowl 57 will feature two opposing African-American quarterbacks for the first time in league history. In addition, it will also feature two opposing brothers; Travis and Jason Kelce. Philadelphia is, of course, known as The City of Brotherly Love. Patrick Mahomes picked up his 41st career win at home. “Super Bowl” equals 41 in Gematria. Texas Tech beat LSU a day prior in men’s college basketball, and had 41 points at halftime. Mahomes went to Texas Tech and Joe Burrow went to LSU. Mahomes finished the season with a regular season record of 31-7 at home. The game between the Eagles and 49ers ended by a score of 31-7. Bill Russell died on July 31 (31/7) last year. Super Bowl 57 will take place on Bill Russell’s birthday, the 43rd day of the year. The Chiefs/Bengals game ended with a combined score of 43 points.
Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid are both known for their State Farm commercials. Super Bowl 57 will take place in State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. “State Farm” equals 103 in Gematria. This is the 103rd NFL season. Patrick Mahomes will enter the Super Bowl with a career record of 10-3 in the playoffs. If his team wins the Super Bowl, he will be 11-3. “Eagles” equals 113 in Gematria. The Eagles and Chiefs last played each other in 2021 on October 3 (10/3). The Chiefs won that game by 12 points, and now those two teams will meet again on the 12th of February. The Chiefs would be 3-2 all-time in Super Bowls with a win. “Chiefs” and “Eagles” both equal 32 in Gematria. The Super Bowl will take place on February 12, which can be written as 1/22 or 2/12. “Kansas City” equals 122 in Gematria, and “Jalen Alexander Hurts” equals 212. Jalen Hurts was born on August 7, the same date as the mayor of Philadelphia. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was born on September 8, the same date this year’s NFL season began. Lurie is 71-years-old, and the last time the Chiefs and Eagles played was exactly 71 weeks before Super Bowl 57. Former Chiefs quarterback Len Dawson died on August 24, 2022. “Kansas City Chiefs” equals 172 in Gematria, and Dawson died 172 days prior to Super Bowl 57.
Andy Reid is the head coach of the Chiefs, who used to be the head coach of the Eagles. Reid can pick up his 269th all-time win if the Chiefs win Super Bowl 57. 269 is the 57th prime number. The Eagles would fall to 17-11 at home in the playoffs with a loss. “Philadelphia, Pennsylvania” equals 1711 in Gematria. The Chiefs would improve to 6-4 against the Eagles all-time with a win. “Kansas City Chiefs” equals 64 in Gematria, and Andy Reid is currently 64 years old. Clark Hunt, the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, is currently 57 years old as his team will try to win Super Bowl 57. The Chiefs last beat the Eagles exactly 71 weeks prior to this year’s Super Bowl. 71 is the 20th prime number, and the Chiefs can pick up their 20th all-time win in the playoffs. Philadelphia sports team have been on a roll lately in terms of making it to the championship game. The Philadelphia Union went to the MLS Cup Final and lost. The Philadelphia Phillies went to the World Series and lost. The Philadelphia Eagles went to the Super Bowl (result TBD). The Philadelphia 76ers are currently one of the hottest teams in the NBA. They will be a team worth keeping an eye on as the NBA playoffs inch closer. One has to wonder why Philadelphia has suddenly become the top sports city in the past year.
Anyone who’s followed my work knows that I believe we are living through the seven-year tribulation period mentioned in Revelation, which began in 2017 and will conclude in 2024 with the Great American Eclipse on April 8. Philadelphia is mentioned in Revelation (albeit not the same Philadelphia located in Pennsylvania). Kobe Bryant was from Philadelphia, and he was the first major celebrity death of this decade. All of these Philadelphia rituals may very well be a sign of the times we’re in. If you need more reason to believe the times are strange, just look at what happened to Damar Hamlin earlier this month. Hamlin suffered from cardiac arrest in the middle of the field. All of his teammates gathered around him and kneeled, with the exception of one played named Neal. Hamlin wears #3, and he remained in critical condition in the hospital until he woke on the third day, ala the resurrected Christ. He then sparked conspiracy theories about him being a clone when he was shown at the Bills/Bengals game on January 22 with his face covered and flashing Illuminati hand signs. The timing was interesting because January 22 was the initial release date of the movie Infinity Pool which was about clones. Damar Hamlin fed into the conspiracies by posting a picture of himself on Twitter with the word “clone” as the caption. He made this post on the 23rd day of ’23. “Clone” equals 23 in Gematria. Hamlin finally showed his face for the first time since his release from the hospital in a video he posted on the 28th, 23 days after he woke up in the hospital. If Damar is simply trolling everyone, why all the connections to the number 23? And why troll people after his miraculous recovery? If I was recently on my death bed and received a miracle, the last thing on my mind would be wanting to troll people for a laugh. The timing of Hollywood releasing a movie about clones on the same day as his appearance at the game also seems more than a bit odd. It’s also interesting how this whole ordeal happened to Hamlin prior to the Super Bowl 57 taking place on Lincoln’s birthday. Abraham Lincoln’s vice-president was Hannibal Hamlin. “Hamlin” and “Abe Lincoln” equal 57 in Gematria.
These are interesting times, indeed. If January was any indication of what’s in store for 2023, then we may be in for a wild ride. I should note that while I believe the Chiefs will win Super Bowl 57, it is far from a guarantee. The last time the Eagles won the Super Bowl was in 2018, months after the Houston Astros won the World Series and the Golden State Warriors won the NBA Finals. The Astros just won the World Series in November and the Warriors won the NBA Finals in June, so it’s possible for déjà vu to strike if the Eagles should prevail. David Crosby just passed away, and his band Crosby, Stills, and Nash had a hit album called Déjà Vu. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
