Our God is a God of Mystery! Or perhaps he is only mysterious to us because we cannot know what he knows or what he sees or what he hears, and only HE knows what is in a person’s heart.
Whatever the case, when God is leading you into a “truth” he wants you to know and share with others, It is like a jigsaw puzzle in a sense. It seems (at least to me) that he never comes right out and tells you exactly how it is, or what he is up to. He gives you one little clue. You can choose to pray about and search out the truth of that clue or not. However you choose to enter the adventure, he will reveal one thing then another and another until you either have the whole picture or most of the pieces of the picture.
Oftentimes the pieces come from different places. Some come from the Bible and some from other Christians you know, sometimes from a source that has no biblical or Christian connection at all…or at least that you can see.
Along the way on this journey to find the pieces and figure out what the message is, he confirms what you have heard or found in a variety of ways. One may be something that occurred in the past and ties directly to the piece you have, and then it may be confirmed by something else that is exactly the same, but given in a different form.
Let me tell you the story of how he has led me to call the body of Christ together to be prepared for what is coming.
As I was seeking the Lord for what the meaning of seeing the number one over and over again. It was usually three 1s or 4 ones in a row…It was similar to before 911 and the terrorist attack against America. For months and months people were repeatedly see 9:11 on their clocks, or there was a time stamp on a deposit or a grocery receipt. It happened often enough so people were taking notice and telling others about that, which often evoked a “REALLY?”…..so have I, but I didn’t know what it meant….and I didn’t understand. No one understood (at least that I am aware of) what that meant. It was only after the terrorist attack against America that it fell into place and the disaster became known as 9-11…..What is the number we call when there is trouble or we need help? 9-1-1….Should we not have been smart enough to put that together? How could we be so blind. Many prayed about the 911 message, but they didn’t know how to pray because they didn’t know what it meant. Had God wanted us on the sidelines, he would not have revealed and repeated the warning to pray. It is an interesting thing about God….We, through our prayers and petitions can change events occurring in our lives. I am not sure that 911 had to happen. Why would God call our attention to something that we could not change through prayer that HE directed? That would make no sense at all. Even in Sodom and Gomorrah, God changed his mind….because if there was just one righeous person…or perhaps like Sodom and Gomorrah, he would just remove the righteous one and get them out of city.
Judgment from God comes to those places where evil reigns. It comes to those people who refuse God’s great gift of Love. It comes to those who have turned their backs on God. If not for Jesus and the gift of his life, death and resurrection…there would only be judgment because we all do not follow the ways of the Lord, and we all fail miserably.
But continuing on….the study of Bible numbers is called Gematria. This is not to be confused with numerology (which is the counterfeit to Gematria, and comes through the occult). Numbers that make a difference in our lives have meaning, and they are God’s meanings. Most of us just don’t know and don’t understand and we walk with our God, not truly seeking a closer walk with him, because it might require more of us than we are willing to give. (Like our wills and our desires and our very lives). The reason is not important…the fact that we don’t learn is our stumbling block and is one of the reasons the scripture tells us “That my people perish for lack of knowledge!” Perish means to die…The end. Over. Kaput. No more…just done. Because we don’t have the knowledge to do what it takes to keep us alive. (Satan came to KILL, Steal and destroy….He did that when the Bible was written and he does that now) Therefore…we need to know things. God things….Secrets revealed in the Word of God. We need to rely upon God for answers to our questions, and we need to seek HIM and LOVE HIM with our Whole hearts! He is the Source! He is the only one who has ALL the ANSWERS! And HE wants nothing more than to have a personal relationship with each of us. He wants us to learn to use the gifts he has given us, and he wants us to ask for more gifts when we see that we need them.
Not long after 911 happened…and who would ever guess that it wasn’t a specific time, but rather a date and a time….(If you check the timeline of what happened on September 11, 2001 you will see many Godincidences.) Many people began to spot 1s in a variety of ways and places.
Since 911, those same people and lots of others have been seeing the numbers 11:11 on our phone or in sequence or on receipts, computers, phones….when messages are received or sent…the list goes on, but either way, many people have been noticing and many have been praying about what it meant. Sometimes there was a 11:1 or a 1:11 or 111….and sometimes it was 1111 or 11:11 or 1:111 or ones jumbled into a longer number but we noticed. The Bible says that “My people hear my voice.” It doesn’t say if they are listening…but we hear in a variety of ways…this is one.
So for months and months I have been asking God to reveal the truth of the ones….In the last couple of weeks he has been doing that, and today, I believe I received the final piece of the puzzle.
In church this morning the scripture from 1 Kings 11:1-3 was mentioned…as I say there, I spotted the 4 1’s again…What is this Lord…and I heard 11:11 and then I quickly paged to 1 Kings 11:11 and this is what I found…. “
1Ki 11:11 So the LORD said to Solomon, “Since this is your attitude and you have not kept my covenant and my decrees, which I commanded you, I will most certainly tear the kingdom away from you and give it to one of your subordinates.
Then I recalled the scripture from Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans I have for you, plans for good and not for evil, plans to give you a hope and a future….
Then I heard Jeremiah 11:11 so I quickly turned there….Here is what I found.
Jer 11:11 Therefore this is what the LORD says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.
I then asked about the three 1s, and I was reminded that on November 1, 2011, the United States of America BETRAYED ISRAEL….
When the people of America turned their backs on God and his Commandments, and His ways, and elected a president who declared to the whole world that America is NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION….that God had no alternative but to bring judgment against the country.
Based on the fact that 9-11 was a date, and 11:11 could be a date, and is certainly specific in the Word of God…then the final straw that brings continued and devastating judgment upon this nation was the betrayal of Israel (God’s chosen people).
Yes…if the numbers hold true, then judgment could arrive in America on November 11th of this year. That is only 8 days away. What to do, oh what to do?????
PRAY….and PRAY more…and know that God would not share this information with us if there were nothing we could do. He has told us that he answers our prayers even before we are finished praying….He says, where 2 or more agree on ANYTHING….then we can expect him to answer and do what we ask. God has not left us without HOPE….HE has not left us FATHERLESS….HE cares for his Children and will send his Spirit to protect us and guide us and lead us where we are to go.
Other Scriptures pertaining to the 11:11 bring more insight for us….
2Ch 11:11 He strengthened their defenses and put commanders in them, with supplies of food, olive oil and wine.
It would be wise to stock up on water and food and a means of defense.
Job 11:11 Surely he recognizes deceitful men; and when he sees evil, does he not take note?
We need to watch for deceitful people in our lives, and especially in our Government….We must NOT elect them to office.
Pro 11:11 Through the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is destroyed.
We must pray for our Cities and speak Goodness and mercy in that city…we must speak hope and peace and the joy of the Lord, and we must speak the gospel to our neighbors…there is nothing more important than sharing Christ with a lost generation, a lost relative, a lost friend….we must arise and speak TRUTH to the lost.
Isa 11:11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea.
We must pray for those of our brothers and sisters in foreign nations who are being put to death, stoned, whipped, broken for the gospel of Christ. We must pray they stand strong, and that God will not allow them to suffer long. But whatever the case the Harvest has begun, and the Harvesters need to get in the field. The time is short, and it won’t be long until the trumpet sounds…(or has it already?) and we hear the Lord’s voice to join him in the air, and forever we will be with the Lord.
In the meantime…talk to your children, your families, claim them for the Kingdom and ask God for special treatment that they might come to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior and FOLLOW HIM….
I spoke to someone today who shared with me that she had a vision of the fires of hell and many were holding their bibles as they went into the fire….which means that many think they are ready and they really aren’t. We must have a personal relationship with JESUS and We must follow HIM….We Must… ***though none go with me…still I will follow!**** No turning back, no turning back.
What all this means….Simply put. God is declaring to us that Judgment is coming which will be a huge disaster or maybe more than one and that it could occur on November 11th of this year……..we may be able to reduce the amount of destruction or at least we know that we must proclaim Jesus throughout the land. We know we are to get prepared. We must not be surprised by what may come on America. We must pray for Mercy, and for God to Remember his Grace, and we must wear our armor, there is a battle to be fought for the souls of people. We must use the weapons God has given us…do you know them? Do you know what to do with them….if not…the time is short…Pull out your Bible and find the answers. YOU as a child of God have authority to bind and loose, to proclaim to declare to decree, to direct angels….practice….so when you need to fight the battle at hand you will know how.
I pray that God will have MERCY upon America and His Children and will deliver us. I pray for Mercy and protection for Israel, and PEACE…..PEACE in Jerusalem….It is in the Mighty Name of Jesus that WE PRAY…..AMEN and AMEN
It is true that no one knows the day or the hour of the Lord’s return…and we may or may not know the date of Judgment…..But we do KNOW that our God will NEVER leave us or forsake us! Praise God!
