I composed and sent this message via email on December 5, 2015 at the request from the "Team Mom" of Loyola Academy's Varsity Football Team:
The Number 14 is #1 for LA Rambler Football! Read On.........
I know this may sound strange, but in my humble opinion the Divine Providence of our Lord God Jesus Christ can be observed in numbers.
Prime numbers have been a hobby of mine for years. Here are some amazing - and yet simple - numbers behind the conclusion to the Rambler's incredibly perfect 2015 football season. I often refer to these numerical examples as "God Winks":
Examples of how Number 14 is #1 for LA Rambler Football:
The above picture was taken from the CSNChicago broadcast of the IL Class 8A State Championship game just after they scored the final TD and extra point @ the 3:56 min mark in the 4th quarter.
1) The Loyola Rambler football team's 2015 perfect final season record was 14-0.
2) The final score vs Marist was 41-0. 41 is the 14th prime number (include 1 in the count).
3) #14 Jake Marwede made the final TD @ the 3:56 min mark in the 3rd quarter which - with the extra point - put the Ramblers up 41-0 (the final score of the game).
So now we have 14 wins, #14 (Jake Marwede's number) and the final 41-0 (41) which is the 14th prime number.
First the drum roll.....
If we multiply 14 (wins) by #14 (Jake Marwede's #) by 41 (the final score) the result is 14 X 14 X 41 = 8036.
Now add the fireworks, cheerleaders and the LA marching band!
If we drop 8036 into a calendar function (I use the HP 17BII+ financial calculator) and go back 8036 days prior to 11/28/15 (the day the Ramblers won their second IL State Championship) you will arrive at 11/27/93 which was the EXACT day (Saturday) that the Loyola Ramblers Football team won their first IL State Championship.
Again, 14 cycles of 14X41 (8036) days prior to 11/28/15 - the day LA won their 2nd IL State Football Championship - connects back to 11/27/93, the first time LA won the IL State Football Championship.
When Jake scored that last touchdown I observed two "God Winks" which were clues that there was something very special going on in the way the game was ending.
1) The first related to the numerical equivalent of the word "Leo" - 3:56 min (the time on the clock in the 3rd quarter when Jake score ld the final TD) - corresponds to Leo (356).
Leo is the astrological sign whose ruling planet is the Sun and which corresponds to the Human Heart.
The verse from Revelations comes to mind:
"And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof." Rev 5:5 (KJV)
2) The final score of 41-0 (41) is the core prime factor behind the verse from John 8:12 "I Am the light of the world."
If anyone is interested learning more about these calculations - and how I stumbled into this hobby - I'd be happy to share more details and answer any questions via email:
Hats off to all the parents, players, Coach Holecek - and all of his assistants - and to #21 Matt Sheridan for nailing that incredible INT on the end zone to seal the final numerical deal on this incredible season!
Peace and God Bless,
PS. When I first did this analysis I assumed that the first Saturday after Thanksgiving in the year 1993 was the day the Ramblers won their first IL State Championship.
Before sending this message along I needed to confirm that this was correct so I called the IHSA's offices in Bloomington IL and left a voicemail message with a "Jackie" in their "Records Dept" who responded via email that 11/27/93 was the "correct" date - see below.
I am adding this information on 12/16/15.....
Note the picture image @ the 3:56 min mark above shows Jake Marwede #14 next to #86 which is our middle son Thomas who was one of the Wide Receivers on Loyola Academy's team. Here's just one final example of how precise this Divine Science of Numerical Correspondences manifests:
86 is 8 + 6 = 14 which mirrors #14.
If you multiply 14 X 86 the result is 1204
1204 days prior to 11/28/15 - the day of the Championship game - brings us back to August 11th in the year 2012. August 11th is the Divine Birthdate of our Lord God Jesus Christ - as noted many times on this blog over the years.
The year 2012 was very special for another reason as it was 23 years from the "89 Year" of 1989. 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.
