2008 Olympics, Phelps And The Power Of 8
The numbers don't lie: Phelps is the best swimmer ever

"The great ones, Jordan, Woods, Montana, seem to not only win, but win in the most dramatic fashion, blending excellence with great theater," NBC's Bob Costas told the U.S. audience this weekend. "Add Michael Phelps to the list."
Lots of eights (8's) are "in the air" this August (2008), the eighth month and Divine Birthmonth of our Lord God the Saviour Jesus Christ. Here's just a few pieces to what I am sure is going to be an incredible glorious puzzle as it continues to unfold:
20080808 - 8th day of the 8th month of the 8th year of the New Millenium. So we naturally have 8/8/8 (888) to factor into this model. The 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing China officially got underway at 8:08 pm on 8/8/08. So let's do the math as follows:
8/10 400 m individual medley Gold Medal, World Record 4:03.84
8/11 4 x 100 m freestyle relay Gold Medal, World Record 3:08.24
8/12 200 m freestyle Gold Medal, World Record 1:42.96
8/13 200 m butterfly Gold Medal, World Record 1:52.03
8/13 4 x 200 m freestyle relay Gold Medal, World Record 6:58.56
8/15 200 m individual medley Gold Medal, World Record 1:54.23
8/16 100 m butterfly Gold Medal, Olympic Record 50.58
8/17 4 x 100 m medley relay Gold Medal, World Record 3:29.34
Michael's second gold medal came in on the Divine Birthday, 8/11, in the 4 X 100 m freestyle relay in a time of 308. 308 corresponds to March 8 (3/08) which is Jesus (13151) prime days from August 11th 41 years later. Second, 191 "Prime of God (764)" cycles of 308 days prior to 8/11/08 brings us to 18470719 which is 23 "I Am" days from August 11th. The same correspondence is achieved when one uses the 8/17 time of 3:29 as follows:
20080817 + 191 "Prime of God (764)" X 329 days = 21800903 which is 23 "I Am" prime days from August 11th, the Divine Birthday.
The total min/seconds number value adds up to 403 + 308 + 142 + 152 + 658 + 154 + 50 + 329 = 2196 which is 188 from 2008. 188 is ONE (1) conjoined with 88 - as in "eight for eight" - and which is also 8 X 11 (8/11) the Divine Birthday. Note that this "Eight for Eight" gold medal feat began on the eve of the Divine Birthday. Note also that 188 = 47 prime X 4 - which is the prime of Truth (29328) - and that 47 days prior to 8/17 brings us to Princess Diana's 47th birthday, July 1st, etc.
The end of the 828th cycle of 888 days since the birth of our Lord God Jesus Christ, August 11th 6 BC, fell on 20070910 which was EXACTLY 333 days prior to 8/8/08. First, 333 is 23 "I Am" prime from Leo (356). And 888 - 333 = 555 which - like 5:55 am - is the advent of the Leo (356th) minute of each new day and 5:55 am is when the sun rises on the Divine Birthdate, August 11th at the 41st "I Am the Light of the World" latitude north - here in Chicago, Illinois USA.
Note also that the 828th cycle of 888 factors into 23 "I Am" X 36 - ie. 828 = 23 prime X 36 - which is the current ages of Michael Phelps (23) and the number of years (36) since Mark Spitz won his record seven (7) gold medals at the 1972 Summer Olympics.
The phrase "eight for eight" has been used to describe Michael Phelps' dream-quest of winning 8 gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. So we naturally have this "88" (88) number to deal with, etc. First, 88 is ONE (1) from 89 which is the prime of Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4. So let's go back 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" cycles of 88 days prior to August 17, 2008, the day Michael Phelps won his eighth gold medal as follows:
88 X 89 = 7832 days.
20080817 - 7832 days = 19870309 which is Jesus (15131) prime days from 20280811, the Divine Birthday of our Lord God Jesus Christ.
Remember when the lights turned on in Wrigley Field for the first time? Well the date, 8/8/88, seemed to be a numerical harbinger for 8/8/08. So let's examine the year/number 1988 as follows:
20080817 - 1988 days = 20030309 which, too, is Jesus (15131) prime days from 20440811, the Divine Birthday of our Lord God Jesus Christ.
Let's go back to the simple non-prime numeral eight (8) and see where this day cycle falls relative to the birth of our Lord as follows:
"The Eight (8) Day Cycle" coincides with the Divine Birthday this month. The Universal Numerical Date (UND) - the number of days from/including August 11th 6 BC - for 20080811 was/is 735600 which factors into eight (8) X 91,950.
Now, let's factor in the 191 "Prime of God (764)" cycle as follows:
191 X 11 cycles of 8 days - 16808 days - prior to 20080817 brings us back to
August 11, 1962, the Divine Birthday of our Lord God Jesus Christ. Notice how 16,808 seems to mirror and correspond to 88 - eight for eight - for 8 + 8 = 16 and 808 (8/08) for August 8th, etc.
Michael's "eight for eight" feat came EXACTLY 48 days from his 23rd birthday, June 30. 48 = eight (8) X 6 and if we move two (2) more cycles of eight (8) days forward you will arrive at 20080902 which is the 23rd day from/including August 11th, the Divine Birthday of our Lord. 23 corresponds to I (9) Am (14) = 23 prime which is our Lord's original name and title given to Moses on Mt. Sinai - ie. "I Am...the Lord thy God..." Exodus 20:2, etc.
Meanwhile Evangelos Zappas, a wealthy Greek philanthropist, sponsored the first modern revival of the Olympic Games. The first modern international Olympic Games was held in an Athens city square in 1859. Zappas paid for the refurbishment of the ancient Panathenian Stadium. This first modern international Olympic Games to be hosted in a stadium was hosted there in 1870, followed by a second 1875. The same stadium was refurbished a second time and used for the Athens 1896 Games. The revival of the Olympic Games, sponsored by Zappas was a dedicated Olympic Games composed of athletes from two countries: Greece and the Ottoman Empire.
2008 is 112 years from 1896.
112 is made up of 23 "I Am" and 89 which is the prime of Leo (356).
Michael Phelps was born in 1985, 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" years from the second birth of the modern games in Athens in 1896. And 23 "I Am" years later brings us to the current year 2008. The Leo (356th) prime number is 2389 which combines 23 "I Am" with 89, the "Prime of Leo (356)."
It it interesting to note that the 23rd Olympiad returned to Athens in 2004 when Michael was 19. When you combine 19 and 23 you come up with 1923 which factors into 641 which is the prime of Rose (9615) = 641 prime X 15. Thus, the 23rd Olympics in Athens corresponded to the advent of the 88th year from the beginning of Fatima (May 13, 1917) - as if to herald Michael's upcoming "eight for eight" feat four years later. The 89th year since Fatima began in the following year, 2005, exactly 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from February 13th, the day that Sister Lucia passed/ascended, the last of the three remaining children who originally witnessed the events of Fatima.
Note also that Athens Greece is located on 23 longitude west - 23.43 longitude west to be exact.
Mark Spitz shows Michael Phelps a champion's grace - Los Angeles Times: "The telecast of Phelps' record-breaking eighth gold-medal triumph drew 31.1 million viewers, the most for the network for any type of Saturday night programming since 31.4 million tuned in for a 1990 episode of 'Empty Nest.' The total of 191 million viewers for the first nine days of the Games surpasses the total for the full 17 days of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City (187 million) and the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney (185 million)."
191 is the prime of God (764) = 191 prime X 4
More will follow....
Note: Michael Phelps was born on 19850630 which corresponds to the UND (Universal Numerical Date) of 727157 which is prime. What does this signify? Well, Michael's UND is perfectly unified and "one with" the day that our Lord God Jesus Christ was born - ie. August 11th in 6 BC.
