21 But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.
22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but of the ship
23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,
24   Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
26 Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island.
27 But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adriaabout midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country;
28 And sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms.
29 Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.
30 And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under colour as though they would have cast anchors out of the foreship,
31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved.
32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off.
33 And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing.
34 Wherefore I pray you to take some meat: for this is for your health: for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you.
35 And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat.
36 Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took some meat.
37 And we were in all in the ship two hundred threescore and sixteen souls.
38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, and cast out the wheat into the sea.
39 And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into the which they were minded, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.
40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves unto the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoised up the mainsail to the wind, and made toward shore.

Midnight - the second watch

Notice that Paul received additional information from an angel during the night, a little help, that everything would be alright because he would see the king or emperor which represents God the Father. And everyone's spirit was uplifted with hope with this new information. This mirrors Daniel 11:34 which pertains to our current time of darkness after Judgment Day.

(Dan 11:34 [KJV])
Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.

Verse 27 states that the shipmen began to sound the depth on their 14th night because they deemed or perceived that they were close to land. Sounding is essentially seeking knowledge on how close a ship is to land. This sounding occurred "about midnight". They were about halfway through the night.

From all the amazing evidence it appears that the End will occur in the year 2025. That's 14 years from M21. Our night began at Judgment Day on May 21, 2011. The Lord has given His people "a little help" in understanding where we stand and had begun the broadcasting in the year of 2018 which is halfway... "about midnight", to the End at 2025.

The cockcrowing - the third watch

Verse 39 states that at daylight they seen land but knew not the land. This shows that their night had ended. This is when they "made toward shore" and arrived on dry ground and the ship was destroyed. Our night too shall end as the Elect head out to meet the Bridegroom as He is the True Light and this symbolic Noah's Ark that we are currently in will be destroyed.
STUDY POINT:  Paul and his fellow shipmen were given additional information at about midnight to what would occur and how close they were to dry land. But it was'nt until the break of dawn that they actually seen and landed on the unknown dry land.

And it also appears that the Elect have been given additional information at about midnight to what has been occurring and how close they are to dry ground. It seems the Elect will see and land on their "far country" at the break of dawn (when the night Ends - 2025).

About Midnight

Paul's journey within the second ship (see the study page) shows us that the sailors knew that dry land was approaching about midnight without actually seeing it. And Paul's 14th night corresponds with our 14th year.
