In March 30, 1492, Columbus received the order to prepare his voyage the same day that the Jewish expulsion from Spain was read aloud. 1491//92 corresponds to the Hebrew year 5252. It spells in Hebrew "Harnov", which means "Mount of Fruit." Har is to "rise up" and Nov means to "germinate or flourish and produce fruit." This is yet more evidence that God raised up America to bring forth fruit in the end times according to the prophecy of the vineyard in Matthew 21:33-43.
