So here’s what happened: Back in 2009, when I had finished writing the book’s manuscript, the Lord laid it on my heart to print 5,000 copies of the book and store them here at my apartment. So that’s what I did.

I didn’t know how the books would be packaged (meaning how many books per box), but when they arrived January 2010, I saw there were 20 books per box, and the shipping weight was listed on the outside of the box. It said 26 lbs as you can see in the picture. So that was that, I never thought anything else about it.

Well, late last year (2018) something was impressing upon me to take the box of books to the post office and weigh it. This was around the same time I learned God had controlled our 10 part “2028 END” video series to be exactly 280 minutes, and that the first verse of the Bible contained 28 letters (God declared the end from the beginning).

So I took a box of books to the Post Office, and I weighed it. And guess what it weighed? It wasn’t 26lbs. It was 27 lbs 5.6 oz! I weighed it on 3 different machines — 27 lbs 5.6 oz.

Now if you know about shipping, you know after the first pound the shipping weight goes by the pound. For example, if a package weighs 4 lb 3 oz, it ships as 5 lbs. If a package weighs 13 lb 9 oz, it ships as 14 lbs. And so forth. So do you see it? My UBP box of 20 books weighing 27 lbs 5.6 oz ships as 28 lbs! 20 UBP books ship as 28 lbs — 2028 End!

Guys I was dumbfounded! All this time I thought my box of 20 UBP books weighed 26 lbs — because that’s what’s printed on the outside! — but it’s wrong! It weighs 27 lbs 5.6 oz.
