Nat Turner & Gabriel Prosser: Continuity of Revolutionary Spirit


(Gabriel Prosser)

Nat Turner and Gabriel Prosser have many things in common.  The commonalities between the two go beyond the obvious such as, they are two historical personalities of African ancestry, who carried out insurrections in the state of Virginia.

The cosmic bond that they share is seen with the numbers  9, 10, 11, 21, 26 and 31.

Turner was born in the year 1800 and Prosser was executed by the state of Virginia also in 1800. “1800”=1+8+0+0=9.

The date of the revolt led by Prosser: August 30, 1800=8+30+1+8+0+0=47=4+7=11.

The name “Gabriel Prosser”:

G=7+A=1+B=2+R=9+I=9+E=5+L=3=36

P=7+R=9+O=6+S=1+S=1+E=5+R=9=38  

                                                                           74=7+4=11

The date of Gabriel’s death on October 10, 1800:10+10+1+8+0+0=29=2+9=11.

On August 30, 2007, Virginia Governor Tim Kaine informally pardoned Gabriel and his co-conspirators. The pardon was informal because it was posthumous.  August 30, 2007=8+30+2+0+0+7=47=4+7=11.

31

The insurrection led by Nat Turner and Gabriel were 31 years apart.

The Turner led rebellion took place on August 21, 1831.

The Gabriel led revolt took place on August 30, 1800.

Turner was 31 years old at the time of his death and the year of  Turner’s death was on 1831.

It is interesting to note, that both were Christian ministers who led violent slave revolts and the word “Freedom” is mentioned 31 times in the Bible.

Chapter 31 of the Book of Numbers relates to going to war:

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.

3 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian.

4 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.

5 So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

6 And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.

7 And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.

The strong cosmic bond between Nat Turner and Gabriel Prosser may be expained by the African understanding of ancestors. In the African tradition, ancestors are said to return in the life of the new-born children. According to the Encyclopedia of Death and Dying:

“The dead return to their communities, except for those unfortunate ones previously mentioned, and there are no limits set to the number of possible reincarnations—an ancestor may be reincarnated in more than one person at a time. Some African myths say that the number of souls and bodies is limited. It is important for Africans to discover which ancestor is reborn in a child, for this is a reason for deep thankfulness. The destiny of a community is fulfilled through both successive and simultaneous multiple reincarnations.”
