September 11, 2001 & March 11, 2004
and the Number 11 in Scripture

Is there a message encoded with that number in the events of those days?

By John Henry

May 14, 2004

Fox News reported on 15 March 2004 that there were exactly 911 days between the Twin Towers attack of September 11, 2001 and the bomb attacks on the trains in Madrid Spain on March 11, 2004. I checked it out and found that they reported it right: From 12 September to 31 December 2001 there were 111 days, 2002 and 2003 each had 365 days, and from 1 January to 10 March 2004 there were 70 days (111 + 365 + 365 + 70 = 911).

Coincidence? I think not!

In the Bible in 2 Chronicles 36:5-6, Jeremiah 52:1-7, Ezekiel 26:1-5, 30:20-26 the word "eleven" is used in conjunction with judgment upon Israeli and Gentile kings and nations.

In his book, Number In Scripture, E. W. Bullinger logically and convincingly shows that numbers have specific Biblical meanings. For example, he uses the 10 commandments, tithing, the 10 plagues, 10 virgins, 10 parables of the Kingdom in Matthew, and 20 other examples to show that the number ten (10) "signifies the perfection of Divine order" (pp. 243 - 250). Likewise he shows that 12 signifies "governmental perfection" using examples of the 12 tribes of Israel, the 12 apostles and 7 other examples (pp. 253 - 255).

On page 251 Bullinger says, "If 10 is the number which marks the perfection of DIVINE ORDER, then 11 is an addition to it, subversive of and undoing that order.  If 12 is the number which marks the perfection of DIVINE GOVERNMENT, then 11 falls short of it.  So that whether we regard it as being 10 + 1, or 12 - 1, it is the number which marks disorder, disorganization, imperfection, and disintegration."  Bullinger gives several examples for the number 11, among them:

* The 11 dukes of Edom (Gen 36:40-43) who were related to Israel, but different in government and order.

* The 12 sons of Jacob minus Joseph ("one is not" - Gen 42:13, 32) without whom the other 11 would not have survived.

* Evil king Jehoiakim (2 Chron 36:5-6) reigned 11 years before Nebuchadrezzar carried him away into captivity.

* Evil king Zedekiah (Jer 52:1-7) reigned 11 years before Nebuchadrezzar carried him away into captivity.

* In the 11th year of the Babylonian captivity Ezekiel prophesied of the fall of Tyrus, (Ezek 26:1-5).

* In the 11th year of the Babylonian captivity Ezekiel prophesied of the fall of Egypt (Ezek 30:20-26).

In light of the Scriptural meaning of the number 11 let us now examine the number 11 as it applies to the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 and 11 March 2004:

* Madrid, Spain has 11 letters.

* New York City has 11 letters.

* The Pentagon has 11 letters.

* The American attacks occurred on September 11th 2001.

* The Madrid attacks occurred on March 11th 2004.

* There were 911 days between the American and Madrid attacks (9 + 1 + 1 = 11).

* The Madrid attack occurred on the 11th Thursday of the year.

* September 11th is the 254th day of the year (2 + 5 + 4 = 11).

* After September 11th there are 111 days left to the end of the year.

* September 11 has 9 letters and 2 numbers (9 + 2 = 11)

* 11 March 2004 has 5 letters and 6 numbers (5 + 6 = 11).

* Each building had 110 stories (11 x 10 = 110).

* The Madrid train attacks left 191 people confirmed dead (1 + 9 + 1 = 11).

* On September 11, 2002 the names of the 2,801 victims of the World Trade Center attacks were read aloud from Ground Zero (2 + 8 + 0 + 1 = 11).

* The Twin Towers standing side by side look like the number 11.

* The first plane to hit the towers was Flight 11.

* Flight 11 had 92 on board (9 + 2 = 11).

* Flight 11 had 11 crew members.

* Flight 77 hit the The Pentagon (11 x 7 = 77).

* Flight 77 had 65 on board (6 + 5 = 11).

* 911 is the number to call in case of emergency (9 + 1 + 1 = 11).

* New York was the 11th State added to the Union.

* Manhattan Island was discovered on September 11, 1609 by Henry Hudson -11 letters.

* Saudi Arabia has 11 letters.

* Afghanistan has 11 Letters.

* The Taliban's Manual of Afghan Jihad (Holy War) is 11 volumes.

* The League of Arab States is comprised of 22 Arab nations (2 x 11 = 22).

* Mohammed, the founder of Islam, died in 632 A.D. (6 + 3 + 2 = 11).

Is this coincidence, of human or satanic design, or is God telling America something?  I believe that we can safely rule out coincidence as there are just to many detailed 11's for it to be a fluke.  There are those that believe it is of occult Luciferian design.  That is a possibility.  However, Satan can do nothing without God's permission.

I believe the prime message in the 11's is from God.  America was founded of Biblical principles and God is not pleased that She has abandoned Him and His Word.   America has fallen short of our former "governmental perfection."  In accordance with the Biblical meaning of the number 11, I believe God telling the believers of our once great Country that we have fallen short of His "Divine order."  The handwriting is on the wall (Daniel 5), but there may still time to obey 2 Chronicles 7:14 which says:

"If My people [believers], which are called by My name [Christians], shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14)

Are our Nation's days are numbered? They might well be! Why? Because America is / has:

1.  Abandoned it's Biblical foundation and has endorsed Ecumenicalism and Humanism as the State religion, and at the same time has begun to persecute the true church.

2.  Aiding and abetting Israel's enemies, who are also our enemies and the worlds (Gen 12:1-3).

3.  Embracing the morally and spiritually corrupt U.N. which has Antichrist / New Age / NWO objectives.

4.  Endorsed and promoted abortion, homosexuality, pornography etc.

By allowing these things Americans and our Government have fallen far short of God's requirement for government (2 Sam 23:3, Rom 13:1-5), and most certainly has subverted God's order (Psalm 119:133) falling headlong into disorder, disorganization, and disintegration.

Psalm 11 says, "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?  The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.  The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.  Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.  For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright." (Psalm 11:3-7)

Might our once Great Nation be likened unto fallen Tyrus or evil King Zedekiah who went into captivity? Or will God help America, in spite of herself, as he did the 11 brothers of Joseph? Only God knows.

Albeit we do know from the Bible that God will save every individual who will turn to Him in repentance and faith.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. ... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. ... For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." (John 1:1-4, 3:16-21)

"He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. ... He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." (John 1:11-13, 3:33-36)

In view of the Scriptural meaning of the number 11, I believe that the fact of the 11's encoded in history from September 11, 2001 to March 11, 2004 are a warning from God to America, Europe and the world.  God's ultimatum is, get right or get judged.
