As an avid sports fan over the decades, I couldn’t help but notice a strange pattern that developed over a period of 15 years. Such a pattern was strong and once I noticed it several years ago I couldn’t ignore it.
Just last year, I realised that such a pattern appeared to be nothing short of miraculous. Now either the Almighty God is an ESPN active subscriber to American Professional Sports or there is some weird karma going on here for fifteen straight years
that stretches the laws of statistical probability to its extreme. Indeed, for the last 15 straight years stretching from 1999 to 2014, there has been a long string of world championships won by American professional sports teams named
after either Christian saints or angels. The years 1999 to 2014 appear to be a Christian dynasty for American professional sports teams. Of the 32 teams in the NFL, only 4 are named after Christian saints or angels. In the NHL, it is only
4 out of 30 teams. In MLB, it is only 6 out of 30. In MLS, it is only 2 out of 19. And in the NBA, it is only 4 out 30. In all five leagues, there are only 20 out of a total of 141 teams that are named after either Christian saints
or angels. But in the last 15 straight years, stretching from 1999 to 2014, 13 out of the 20 Christian named teams have won a total of 28 of the biggest and most watched world championships in American, if not world history.
So what does this all mean? Or rather, what does certain American professional sports teams and their recent achievements have anything to do with the following: the number 13, God, the Virgin Mary, Nostradamus, a meteor, Christian Saints, the
Antichrist, China, the Bible Code, the Book of Revelation, and the Mayan Calendar? For the sake of the world and mankind: hopefully nothing. However, there unfortunately appears to be some unnerving correlation between all of the foregoing elements.
What follows will be an attempt to explain what the relationships between such elements are and what could they possibly mean.
POSSIBLE CLUES TO THE SIGNIFICANCE OF 1999:
THE PROPHECY OF MICHEL de NOSTRADAMUSregarding
The End of Days, JULY/AUGUST 1999
Century X, Quatrain 72
“In the year 1999 and seven months,
From the sky will come the great King of terror,
Resurrecting the great King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars will reign happily.”
According to the famous 16th
century French Catholic physician turned prophet, Michel de Nostradamus, 1999 is the year that the end times begin, whereby the King of the Anglemois (Mongols), perhaps Genghis Khan, is resurrected to bring about wars [note here that Mars is the Roman
god of war]. The late Oxford scholar and author, Erika Cheetham, certainly thought so. [See: Erika Cheetham, The Further Prophecies of Nostradamus: 1985 and Beyond, Perigee Books, New York (1985)].
THE BIBLE CODE:
According to author Michael Drosnin of ‘The Bible Code’, the bible code hidden within the text of the scriptures would remain encoded
(encrypted) until the time of the end. The date that came up was 1997, which is statistically well within the range of 1999.
Michael Drosnin, The Bible Code, Simon & Schuster, New York, NY (1997), p. 104.
MARIAN SIGHTINGS PROVIDE FURTHER CLUES TO THE SIGNIFICANCE OF 1999:
NANCY FOWLER -
The Marian seer Nancy Fowler of Conyers, Georgia, USA stated that part of the last message from the Virgin
Mary on October 13, 1998 was that it was the end. [Nancy Fowler is controversial in that her visions provided by the Virgin Mary purportedly revealed that the Chinese Red Army would invade North America during the end times. Nancy Fowler’s
statements on this matter appear to not only corroborate, but also to clarify what another Marian seer, Jacinta Gonzalez, described in an August 1979 interview regarding The Prophecy of Garabandal, Spain of 1961]. Notice that
the messages given to Nancy Fowler occurred on the 13th day of the month.
THE PROPHECY OF LA SALLETTE, FRANCE of SEPTEMBER 19, 1846
“…Before all that arrives, great disorders will arrive, in the Church, and everywhere. Then, after [that], our Holy Father the Pope will be persecuted. His successor will be a pontiff that nobody expects.
Then, after [that], a great peace will come, but it will not last a long time. A monster will come to disturb it. All that I tell you here will arrive in the other century, at the latest in the year two thousand.”
Whether it is 1997, 1998, 1999 or the year 2000, it is still quite remarkable that such dates from all of the foregoing sources are well within
statistical range of each other. However, if God is using certain American professional sports teams as instruments of his will for some higher purpose, such as a warning of some sort, then it can be argued that the aforesaid 1999 start of the 15 year
run of victories by such said teams appears to mark the beginning of the end. That being said, one must make further assumptions. Assuming that the aforesaid chain of world championships by 13 American professional teams named after Christian saints
and angels ended in 2012, then why? I am not saying that it did, but what if it did end in 2012. What is the significance of 2012? And what is supposed to happen after that year?
2013 UPDATE: On October 30 of the 13th year of the 21st century, the Boston (aka
Saint Botolf’s Stone) Red Sox baseball team won the 2013 World Series Championship at Fenway Park in Boston, a feat which has not been done at the said ball park for almost 95 straight years since the time that Babe Ruth pitched for the team! Another
noteworthy fact is the following: the Boston Red Sox team won its 13th American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers just to reach the 2013 World Series and face the Saint Louis Cardinals, which they defeated
to win it all. Truly a battle of the saints!
On June 13, 2014 (mind you, Friday the 13th), the Los Angeles (aka The City of Angels) Kings ice hockey team defeated the New York Rangers to win the coveted 2014 Lord Stanley Cup NHL Hockey Championship. And on June
15, 2014, the San Antonio (aka Saint Anthony) Spurs basketball team defeated the two-time defending champion Miami Heat team to win the NBA finals championship with a score of 104 to their opponents 87. What is significant here is that the San Antonio
final score of 104 is a multiple of 13 (i.e. 13 x 8 = 104). That darn number 13 keeps cropping up.
all that said, the pivotal year 2012 still bears mentioning here and is no less important just because of the said championship wins in 2013 & 2014, due to the fact of its religious significance and the apparent links it has with other seemingly unrelated
events, albeit, sporting events involving 13 American professional sports teams named after Christian saints and angels. So again, what does it all mean? At the very least, the said 28 world championships won by 13 religiously
named American professional teams from 1999 to 2014 deserve a religious interpretation.
POSSIBLE CLUES TO THE SIGNIFICANCE OF 2012:
THE DRESDEN MAYAN CODEX -
According to the
Dresden Mayan Codex, the Mayan Calendar slated the next phase of the end times at December 21, 2012. This phase would involve the beginning of apocalyptic level natural disasters, including those involving deluges.
POSSIBLE CLUES TO THE SIGNIFICANCE OF 2013:
THE PROPHECY OF SAINT MALACHY OF ARMAGH, IRELAND:
“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman [the
Last Pope], who will feed his flock among many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city [the Vatican] will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.”
Could Pope Francis I be the last pope of
the Vatican pursuant to the Prophecy of Saint Malachy?
POPE FRANCIS I -
Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected the new Pope of the Vatican during 2013,
taking the name of Pope Francis I. It is interesting to note that Cardinal Bergoglio was the son of PetrusBergoglio, a Roman. Henceforth, one could argue that Pope Francis I is Petrus Jr. the Roman. And furthermore,
the original name of Saint Francis of Assisi was 'Giovanni di Pietro (Peter) di Bernardone'. As a consequence of the aforesaid, Pope Francis I apparently satisfies the said Propechy of Saint Malachy to the letter.
What’s even more interesting is that Pope Francis I was elected on the 13th day of March during the 13th year of the 21st century at exactly 13 minutes past the eighth
hour in the evening GMT. Notice again the recurrence of the numerical value of 13.
ON JUNE 26, 2000 A.D. THE LATE POPE JOHN PAUL II RELEASED THE SUPPOSED THIRD SECRET OF FATIMA WHICH
MIRRORED SAINT MALACHY’S PROPHECY REGARDING THE LAST POPE OF THE VATICAN.
THE SUPPOSED THIRD SECRET OF FATIMA READS AS FOLLOWS:
"The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima,
on 13 July 1917.
I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine.
After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of
Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from
her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in
front of it’ a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a
cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of
the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of
different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.
One must be reminded of the fact that the Third Secret of Fatima was revealed to three peasant children at Fatima, Portugal on the 13th day of July in 1917 even though it was written down on paper for the first time
by Sister Lucia on January 3, 1944. And although the foregoing text released by the Vatican appears to corroborate the Prophecy of Saint Malachy regarding the destruction of Rome and the termination of the Papal lineage, the alleged Third
Secret of Fatima has been controversial in that many have argued that it appeared to be either incomplete or a replacement of the actual message. Italian journalist Antonio Socci seems to suggest that Archbishop Capovilla, former secretary for Pope
John XXIII, had admitted that there are actually two texts of the said secret. [Antonio Socci, The Fourth Secret of Fatima, Loreto Publications, 2009].
What’s even more interesting is that in October of 1981, the late Pope John
Paul II admitted to journalists from the mainstream publication known as Stimmes des Glaubens that the Third Secret of Fatima had more to do with horrible cataclysmic events of biblical proportions. Indeed, the late Pope John
Paul II stated the following:
"Because of the seriousness of its contents, in order not to encourage the world wide power of Communism to carry out certain coups, my predecessors in the chair of Peter have diplomatically
preferred to withhold its publication. On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this much: if there is a message in which it is said that the oceans will flood entire sections of the earth; that, from one moment to the other, millions
of people will perish... there is no longer any point in really wanting to publish this secret message. Many want to know merely out of curiosity, or because of their taste for sensationalism, but they forget that 'to know' implies for them a responsibility.
It is dangerous to want to satisfy one's curiosity only, if one is convinced that we can do nothing against a catastrophe that has been predicted."
Through a series of interviews held on the Coast to Coast AM
Radio Show with Art Bell from 1996 to 1998, further corroboration was provided by the late Father Malachi Martin (ex-Jesuit priest and exorcist) of New York City, former advisor to the late Pope John XXIII in 1960. Father Martin provided clues of what
was written in the actual Third Secret of Fatima, which according to him was a one-page handwritten letter, not a 4-page document as released by the Vatican. He stated that it had to do with apostasy that will destroy the Vatican from within. He also
stated that it had to do with a hyperbolide (i.e. meteor or asteroid) that will destroy the nations of the earth. Toward the end of a 1998 interview on the Coast to Coast AM Radio Show with Art Bell, Malachi Martin did provide a clue that revealed that
all of the events of the Third Secret of Fatima would occur in less than 20 years, thereby leaving a window of less than 5 years from today’s date due to the fact that the hyperbolide has not yet hit. Father Martin’s statements regarding
the meteor appear to be in line with The Book of Revelation, 8:8-9, whereby it states the following:
“The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze,
was thrown into the sea, a third of the sea turned to blood, a third of the living creatures died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
Such statements by Father Martin also corroborated what was
said in The Message of Our Lady of Akita, Japan, as revealed to Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa on October 13, 1973. Notice again that the heaven sent message was given on the 13th day
of the month.
The Message of Our Lady of Akita, Japan goes as follows:
"As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a
terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor
faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the
bishops and the priests. The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their Confreres.
The Church and altars will be vandalized. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.”
anything to support the validity that the Vatican is keeping the information that a catastrophic deluge in the future will be caused by a hyperbolide? The answer appears to be a big yes. Indeed, on Mount Graham of the southeast Arizona desert is
a 1.8 meter telescope operated by the Vatican to search for, amongst other things, asteroids. Since 1993, such a telescope in Arizona has been officially known as the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope or VATT. [See: http://www.vaticanobservatory.org/VO-NEWS/index.php/recent-news/vatican-observatory-main/vo-foundation/item/69-vatican-operates-telescope.html].
Whether VATT is looking for the hyperbolide of the New Testament Revelation or not is arguable, but it certainly isn’t being used to spot the second coming of Jesus Christ riding on a giant magic flying rug.
So is this hyperbolide
the reason for the Vatican’s future demise or is it something else? Who knows? But if Pope Francis I is indeed the last Papal leader of the Catholic Church, then who or what is responsible for this abrupt termination of the long, unbroken
spiritual and religious lineage of Saint Peter? It stands to reason that such a termination will be due to the long feared individual known as ‘the Antichrist’. According to the 13th chapter of the Book of Revelation,
verses 16-18 [notice that 13 again], during the end times the Antichrist will have
“…forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right
hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.”
“This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate
the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.”
And how do we know that such an antichrist will be behind the destruction of the Vatican and the termination of the Papal
line? One prophecy appears to point out that ‘the Antichrist’ is amongst us right now. Refer again to The Prophecy of La Salette, France of September 19, 1846.
THE PROPHECY OF LA SALETTE OF SEPTEMBER 19, 1846, TWO PEASANT CHILDREN, MAXIMIN GIRAUD & MELANIE MATHIEU, WERE CONFRONTED BY THE VIRGIN MARY AND GIVEN A MESSAGE THAT THE ANTICHRIST WOULD BE BORN 100 YEARS AFTER THE DATE OF THE
VISION. ONE HUNDRED YEARS FROM THE DATE OF THE VISION IS 1946. AS OF JULY 2014, IF THE ANTICHRIST SHOULD EXIST HE WOULD THEORETICALLY BE AROUND 68 TO 69 YEARS OF AGE. THE EXISTENCE OF SUCH AN INDIVIDUAL WOULD PROPHETICALLY COINCIDE WITH
THE SUPPOSED LAST OF SAINT PETER’S LINEAGE, POPE FRANCIS I, WHO IS NOW 77 YEARS OF AGE.
THE ORIGINAL PROPHECY OF LA SALETTE, FRANCE (September 19, 1846) PROVIDED BY MELANIE MATHIEU:
“…Lastly, hell will reign on earth. It will be then that the Antichrist will be born of a Sister, but woe to her! Many will believe in him, because he will claim to have come from heaven, woe to those who will believe in him!
That time is not far away, twice 50 years will not go by….”
OTHER POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE NUMBER 13, AMERICAN SPORTS & BIBLICAL PROPHECY:
The 13 American professional sports teams named after either Christian saints or heavenly angels that have won
28 world championships in the last 15 years appears to be a code of some sort. The number 13 appears to have permeated this aforesaid long-running phenomenon. Indeed, a phenomenon that has only occurred in the United States and
nowhere else in the world. But why? Perhaps,there is some religious significance that is behind all of this after all. Indeed, looking into the history of the United States, it is the only countrythat was founded by Christians, primarily Protestants,
who sought refuge from religious persecution in England. And what is more interesting than that is the fact that this country, upon its very foundation, was originally composed of 13 colonies of mother England, which later became independent
states. And on the original flag of the United States as a new republic, there can be seen13 stars and 13 stripes. The 13 colonies/states and their official church affiliations are listed below
in the order of their respective foundation dates.
Virginia (1607) –Anglican (Church of England);
New Hampshire (1622) – Puritan (Congregationalist);
(1624) – Anglican (Church of England);
Massachusetts (1630) – Pilgrims, Puritans (Congregationalist);
Maryland (1632) – Anglican (Church of England);
– Puritan (Congregationalist);
Rhode Island (1636) – No official church, but primarily Anglican;
Delaware (1638) – No official church, but primarily Anglicans, Lutherans & Dutch Reformed;
North Carolina (1653) – Anglican (Church of England);
South Carolina (1663) – Anglican (Church of England);
New Jersey (1664) – No official church, but primarily Quakers,
Lutherans & Dutch Reformed;
Pennsylvania (1681) – No official church; primarily Lutherans, Mennonites, Dutch Reformed;
Georgia (1733) –No official church, but primarily Anglicans, Lutherans &
Library of Congress

With all that said, what other relationships are there in regards to the number 13 that can shed light on what this extraordinary athletic phenomenon all means. Well, we know that by virtue of the team names of the 13
American professional championship teams, Christianity holds the key to the meaning of the phenomenon. We also know that by virtue of history alone, that the land mass constituting the United States stands alone amongst all of the nations of the world
as being founded by Christians who were seeking refuge from religious persecution that they had suffered while living in England.
And because Christianity holds the key to the said phenomenon, one can make a leap of faith, so to
speak, and surmise that the number 13 appears to refer directly to Jesus and his Apostles. Indeed, if one examines Jesus and his Apostles one can find that they number a total of 13 members. The list of names of
Jesus and his Apostles are as follows:
more, if my analysis is even remotely correct, one can also surmise that the number 13 refers to Jesus Christ himself. Incredibly, according to the13th verse of the 22nd chapter of the
Book of Revelation in the New Testament account, Jesus Christ made the following profound statement
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
On the flip side of the coin, however, the number 13 may also refer to the Antichrist, as previously suggested in this work. See the 13thchapter of the Book of Revelation,
CLUES AS TO WHEN THIS WINNING STREAK PHENOMENON WILL END AND WHAT WILL IT MEAN:
The number 13 may also provide a clue as to when this aforesaid athletic
winning streak of American professional teams named after both heavenly angels and Christian saints will finally end. Palm Sunday marking the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem less than 2000 years ago, fell on the 13th
of April in 2014, just two days before the blood moon occurred on April 15, 2014, the Passover. This blood moon forms part of a tetrad of blood moons that extends from 2014 to 2015 (April 15, 2014, October 8, 2014, April 4, 2015 & September 28, 2015).
The fact of the tetrad of blood moons is nothing new, for they have happened several times before in history. What is different here is that such lunar events are occurring during the time period of this aforesaid sports phenomenon of 15 years duration,
coupled with the fact that the first of the tetrad blood moons has already occurred on Passover in such close proximity to Palm Sunday on the 13thof April [note that 13 again]. What’s interesting here
is that these so-called four blood moons occur on the feast of tabernacles and the Passover in two consecutive years. This must be important. From a biblical standpoint, blood moons tend to be seen as a harbinger of bad events to come. See:
Joel 2:30-31; Matthew 24:29-31; Acts 2:17-21 &Revelation 6:12-14. Also see: The Talmud (Sukkah 29a).
Could the occurrence of such a tetrad of lunar events coinciding with important Christian holy days and the aforesaid sports phenomenon mark the end of the 15 year world championship winning streak and signify the beginning of terrible events to
come? And if so, does it not mean then that this 15 year duration of championship wins by American professional teams named after heavenly angels and Christian saints is no coincidence at all, but rather, a form of advance notice by a higher power warning
the world of something terrible to come. Perhaps, forewarning us of the tribulation period that is to last 7 years, as foretold in the Book of Daniel, chapter 9, verse 27. One could only assume that such a tribulation
would include either another world war or an economic collapse or even natural cataclysms or worse, all of the aforesaid. Well, whatever it means, there is enough information here that should compel the average person to think seriously on the matter.
In closing, it is said that sports is nothing more than a reflection of life itself. But life is more complicated than it seems. Indeed, it appears that the world in which we all live is connected somehow. What is meant by connected is
that it is mathematically connected. “…A world of mathematical relations means a world in which everything is connected, in which nothing exists separately, and in which at the same time the relations between things have a real existence
apart from the things themselves, or possibly, ‘thing’ do not even exist and only ‘relations’ exist.” [Damon Wilson, The Mammoth Book of Nostradamus and Other Prophets, Carroll and Graf, 1999, p. 523]. Whether God
is using 13 American professional sports teams as instruments of his will to tell us that the world will end or not is arguable. The fact that Malachi Martin’s statements regarding the said timeline of the horrific events described in the Third
Secret of Fatima closely coincides in time with the 15 straight year run of world championship victories by 13 American professional sports teams named after Christian saints and angels is astonishing in and of itself. The recurrence of
the numerical value of 13 in all of the foregoing seems to suggest that there is indeed some complicated mathematical relationship here. Nonetheless, even if one were to ignore such dire implications of the end times, which would be hard to do, such
statistical information, on its face, at least tells us that something historic has happened in the last 15 straight years that is worthy of the annals of sports. I let the readers of this work decide for themselves what the aforesaid means.
