What is it with those numbers? 333,111,1111 and 911
I wasn't going to post today but Michaela is visiting a friend down the hall so I thought I'd sneak one in. Yes, it's about those crazy numbers again! What is the Lord's point, I wonder? I understand the 111 since He gave me a very clear dream and told me to ,"Read Hosea 11:1." Okay, so that one made sense to me - He is calling his children out of Egypt [which symbolizes slavery to sin, basically.] It is similar to the word I get that He is calling people "out of Babylon" [same symbolism, calling people out of worldliness and idolatry...back to Him.] Even 333 makes sense to me, that one was pretty easy to figure out. 11:11 is the most common of all - many people around the world see this number. Millions upon millions. It is a worldwide phenomenon that crosses all religions and cultures. Why? My guess is that the Lord is trying to get our attention. In the Bible, the number 11 signifies judgment. Is the Lord warning us that we need to clean up our act? Yes...I think so. Another interpretation of the 11:11 phenomenon is "the eleventh hour". Either way, the Lord is trying to make a point here and is using millions of people to get this point across. Not thousands - MILLIONS from all around the globe. This is no mass delusion. I know plenty of perfectly sane people that this happens to. It is not a coincidence but rather a God-incidence. Which brings me to the number 911. Over the past couple of years I see the numbers 911 on such a frequent basis that it is astonishing. It is a daily event, not just for me but for many people, including my mom. WHY? I am going to go out on a limb here and give my viewpoint on this. We are in a state of emergency - both spiritual and physical. Worldwide. And the Lord is warning us. Strongly. If we do live in unusual times, should we be fearful? No...we should trust Him more than ever. Our life is in Him, not in this world. We are just sojourners here; our true home is heaven.
