Emperor Akbar’s Blog

Back in the 16th century, Akbar, the Mogul Emperor of India, ordered the construction in his royal gardens of a vast marble pond for his recently acquired rare white Himalayan swans. Akbar wished to inaugurate their entry into his new pond by filling it with a sea of milk. A proclamation was read throughout the capital inviting each citizen to come to the royal gardens during the hours of darkness and pour one cup of milk into the new pond before departing.

The next morning Akbar awoke to a pond filled with water.

No one in his court could or dared explain why this had happened except Birbal, Akbar’s giggling court jester. “The problem, Great Lord, is that you don’t understand human nature,” said Birbal, adding, “May I suggest that in order to find out what happened, you command your guards to go into the capital and collar a cross-section of citizens from every caste and station. I promise you that all of them, be they high or lowly born, will essentially give you the same excuse.”

When Akbar questioned each citizen separately, every one whether they were prince or pauper said essentially the following: “It was so dark and there were so many people pouring their milk into that vast pond. And milk is so expensive! I thought my little cup of water would make no difference.”


Ever since I started publishing HogueProphecy Bulletins in 1999, I always wanted it to be a free newsletter. I financed the thousands of hours and tens of thousands of words written, edited and posted by paying expensive web costs each year out of my own pocket.

At this time, I cannot keep putting $4,000 to $5,000 a year into these blog bulletins without some help from the tens of thousands of readers who enjoy them for free.

If you are one of those one-in-a-thousand readers who have generously responded so far, I thank you. My work is visionary, but equally important is the vision and support of those who read it and recognize its value and the sacrifices in time and money it takes me to keep it alive.

Back on 22 April 2009, I sent this message to all of you already on my Newsletter list. To those who generously responded, I’ll be sending you a personal letter of gratitude shortly. Today I post this call for help on the blog page to all of you in the general public who regularly browse and bookmark this page.

We need contributions from more readers so I can keep HogueProphecy Bulletins going through the year 2009.

It doesn’t have to be a lot.

It can be as little as $5, or $10, $25 or more.

It all helps.

I sense there are a lot of you out there who have thought about giving but reasoned that others are helping HogueProphecy Bulletins along. If most of you think someone else is pouring milk into this pond then there is no milk to sustain the new blog page where HogueProphecy Bulletins are published.

Your little cup of donation to HogueProphecy Bulletins makes a big difference.

Only your donation, however small, matters. If you have benefited in any way from the information in these bulletins please consider making a donation of appreciation:


If you don’t like donating over the internet you can mail a US Check or US Bank Draft care of “John Hogue” at P.O. Box 666, Langley, WA, 98260.

Thanks again to all of you who have contributed. Thanks also to all of you who will contribute in the future and keep HogueProphecy Bulletins coming for the year 2009. We are now in historic and challenging times. The great purification is happening. The year 2009 will see current events and prophecy meet like no other yet lived in our lives so far. Please help me keep the bulletins coming.

Your single cup of sweet milk matters! Thank you.

    Wow. You have covered about EVERY topic that can be place under the heading of “prophecy” .

    You also said that every single cup of sweet milk matters (!)

    You now may add “request a prophetic word” to your GROWING list of topics-under prophecy !


    [I think this is about the ONLY one I don’t see on all these lists-did I miss it ?]
