Bob’s Clock Stopped Here
We Must Discern the Times
By Bonnie Jones
He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. (Matthew 16:2-4)
On the last night before Bob’s passing I was alone with him in his hospital room and observed the clock on the wall as it sped forward. At exactly 11:55 p.m. the red second-hand began to move quickly then rested at the perpendicular position pointing to twelve. Immediately the minute hand began to advance forward rapidly. Of course when the minute hand moved, the hour hand advanced as well. In this quick transition, the clock stopped at exactly eight o’clock for a period of five seconds. It began spinning forward again until both hands reached exactly midnight then they stopped. The red second-hand jumped forward five seconds then the clock seemed to reset itself. This process took a total of five minutes. The same thing happened with the clock exactly one week earlier. At that time, four others beside myself were in the room to bear witness to this extraordinary yet prophetic happening.
Several weeks after Bob’s passing, we talked with the head of security from the hospital. We showed him the video we made on our phone of the clock in fast-forward. He was amazed and said it was impossible for this to happen. He told us that all hospital clocks are synchronized to atomic time for the purpose of recording births, deaths, surgeries etc. because the timing must be precise. Yet this did happen, not once but twice.
I believe that God was showing us a demonstration of spiritual things being accelerated in the body of Christ. The fact that the clock stopped at eight o' clock indicates a new beginning. There was grace before the new day (11:55 p.m.) that has been extended to the body of Christ. Bob would speak of the number eleven, from Isaiah 11, where God is stretching forth His hand a second time to the remnant. And I believe fifty-five reveals great grace being released to bring in the billion-soul harvest Bob often spoke of.
It shall come to pass in that day, That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time, to recover the remnant of His people who are left, (Isaiah 11:11a)
I believe the red second-hand resting on the twelve pointed to God’s divine apostolic government being established. In fact I believe it is already in position and now being revealed by the Spirit of Truth. There were five witnesses - also meaning grace. The first time it happened was February 6; six representing the number of man. The second time was February 13, and thirteen represents a double-portion. Therefore, I feel a double portion of the anointing will be poured on the saints.
The time 11:55 also represents two chapters in the Bible; Isaiah 55 from the Old Testament and Hebrews from the New. Hebrews chapter 11 is known as the faith chapter. It’s loaded with testimonies from the heroes of faith. Yet the night of Bob’s passing, I witnessed his demonstration of obedience that leads to faith. And this is what I believe the New Testament saints walked in. Bob would always talk about Isaiah 35 being the Highway of Holiness and Isaiah 55 being the conditions for it.
Highway of Holiness
Daily we need to heed to the voice of the Lord and obey. Too many have partaken of the fruit of the world and walked in its’ ways. Our soul is easily swayed by all the distractions of this fast-paced world. Yet our spirit should be the reigning authority in our life. If our spirit is submitted to the Holy Spirit, we will make choices according to the Father’s will and stay on His Highway. Many have been chewing on the wrong food and digesting the poison it has to offer. As the body of believers walk with the Lord on the Highway of Holiness, surrendered in obedience to Him, their toxins are flushed out of the soul and only their redeemed spirit remains.
In short, all roads lead to the same place, although some take detours and never return to the straight and narrow way. Some are all about self and some are all about I AM. Take the road less traveled and arrive on time in the arms of Jesus.
Please view this video of the clock in fast-forward recorded on February 6th, 2014 in Bob’s hospital room. Indeed it was a supernatural phenomenon that only God could make possible. It’s an extraordinary prophecy and we need to take heed and understand the time is NOW for HARVEST. Time has been accelerated and we must be able to discern the signs of the times. Don’t let the distractions of this world keep you from walking with Him in the eternal realm. Step into the harvest field of hope and follow after Him, only He can make you a fisher of all mankind. Follow the road less traveled and bear witness to the Anointing.
