    Seeing 11:11 and it's Meaning in the Bible

    I am wondering if anyone here has been seeing 11:11 everywhere. I was several months ago. I prayed about it and asked G-d that if it was not of Him, to take it away. Well, needless to say, it persisted I couldn't figure it out, and started ignoring it. After quite a while it stopped. But, now, about 1 month ago, it has started up again, and now with a fervor more than before.

    I told everyone earlier that I had been seeing 11:11 everywhere. I just prayed about it and I was sent to the Bible. What I found is astonishing...to say the least! These scriptures could be serving dual-duty, pointing toward end time events, the way the Passover in Egypt pointed toward Christ dying on the cross as the supreme sacrifice.

    The rending of the Jewish kingdom, the Lord recovering His remnant from around the world, judgment inside the borders of Israel, a fight with the king of the north(!), and the two witnesses being resurrected.

    -----------

    Joshua

    11:11 And they smote all the souls that were therein with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them: there was not any left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire.

    I Kings

    11:11 Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.

    Proverbs

    11:11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

    Isaiah

    11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    Jeremiah

    11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.

    Ezekiel

    11:11 This city shall not be your caldron, neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof; but I will judge you in the border of Israel:

    Daniel

    11:11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.


    Hosea
    11:11 They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria: and I will place them in their houses, saith the LORD.
    (Could this also refer to the Jews fleeing Jeruselem in the future?)

    Revelation
    11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

    It's kind of interesting---I would consider myself a fairly stable Christian, not involved in any type of spiritism etc---And yet for approximately 5 years now I have either awoken abruptly or randomly looked at a clock at exactly 11:11---Both morning and night----It's not just the time for me, I see it constantly in all manner of ways----My daughter is aware that I have this going on and pointed out to me that on our computer there is a large greenish/yellow 11-11 that the last one in both 11's flashes off and on continuously, (I'm watching it as I'm typing this)----If you google it you will find all kinds of forums addressing the issue---Most of them are pretty wacko though---As a Christian I did exactly what you did and looked up every verse in the Bible, chapter 11 verse 11, but to no personal satisfaction---Maybe the Lord will have something in store for us on 11/11/11????

    Firstly, there is absolutely nothing meriting a need for prayer in this area. Numerology is a dead idea; theist and atheist alike understand that numbers are simply humanly concocted symbols used to signify values recognized by other humans. Even some animals recognize the ideas of "More" or "Less." Numbers are simply "Letters" or characters we have placed to denote how much more or less something is.

    The significance of 11:11 is moot, especially when put in the context of all the other times you might look at a clock during the day. Do you think the time 3:16 bears any importance, because of John's verse? Perhaps now you will, but I guarantee you that if you had lived even 150 years ago, before clocks and timezones were standardized, you would have never even noticed. 11:11 bears no more significance than 12:34 or any other time of day. Seeking God's answers on this matter via prayer will ultimately lead you either to a dead end, or a self-fulfilling response for several reasons...

    1) Time is relative, and thus, entirely subjective.

    2) Numbers, which we humans use to denote time, are also entirely subjective with respect to humans. They are mutually agreed upon symbols for values which, without an observing body (us) would not exist. Sure, 1 would still be only 1, but there would be nobody to call it 1, if we weren't here, and so it would simply just be unrecognized or unvalued value.

    3) You answer your own prayers, depending on what happens (or doesn't happen), or what you choose to read into a particular event.



    Coincidence is a marvelous thing, and speaking purely mathematically and statistically...it would be far more miraculous if you never saw 11:11 for the rest of your life. The odds are outrageously in favor of this event occurring repeatedly throughout your life, and trying to make something of it puts you in the same silly place as those who think that they're cursed or use relatives' birth dates for lottery numbers.

    Numbers, like words only have the power over you that you allow them to. They are arbitrary and defined by us...only us. Outside of us, they are meaningless or nonexistent.

    Fret not.

    The fret not part of your post I would agree with----But the rest of your reasoning, not so much----I think the Lord uses numerology as well in His speaking to us through scripture---Think of the 7th day, completion etc---The 666 of revelations as the number of a man---I realize that some go way over board with it all---Like Campings current May 21st rapture prediction etc.

    The 11:11 thing is more like a reoccurring dream---It started with me at first as just that, a dream seeing the figures 11:11 over and over again repeatedly---So yeah, at first I was alarmed and a bit apprehensive and concerned to know if the Lord was trying to reveal something to me or was it an attack from the adversary----I experienced this for almost 2 years before I realized there were others, (many thousands of others experiencing the same thing)---What is a little discouraging about it is that most of those experiencing it are seemingly unsaved----But I don't stress over it anymore and am sure if it were from the Lord, He'd reveal it to me in a peaceful manner----So now I just basically ignore it.

    hi

    hello, lease forgive me , I have only just joined and I havnt even said hello in the newbie bit yet but this is just amazing. I knew God was good but , OMG!!! If you will let me I will explain.
    I was born again alone at home about 5/6 years ago, the catalyst to this was seeing 11:11 everywhere!! When I looked at my mobile, when I looked at laptop, teletext, kitchen clock, appointment dates, dentist, doctors, telephone bills EVERYTHING!! It was either 11:11 or 23:23 (which is the same) IT WAS BEYOND COINCIDENCE!!!

    I have searched everywhere for the meaning, I accepted Jesus and had accepted that I will never know the answer or even the direction until tonight!! I was giving up!! 6 years and I have reasearched all numbers and wacko ideas. I lost hope until desperate tonight I prayed with my fingers on my laptop... And here I am!!!

    God bless you sister !!

    If there is anything else please post it because this was for me

    This is garbage that man such as yourself speak when you reject Jesus and do not absorb his Living Word.

    Which fraud taught you such a thing? Or did you 'teach' yourself this? What you say is complete garbage. The only One who can answer prayers is GOD, the only real and Living GOD of the Holy Bible.

    For the record, numerology is not mute. You're just basing things off your own understanding and not of GOD

    Wow! I'm glad you saw fit to weigh in with such a well-worded and thoughtful, not to mention timely and encouraging post, Chad.

    Care to demonstrate or prove any of this?

    No need for a numerology separate post, the context of this thread is numbers and God's revelation.
    I use to wake up every morning at 3am on the dot, if I hadn't google the meaning of this I would never in my own thoughts say this is the Devil's hour. If we don't assess every thought that come to us with an open critical mind, we would accept it without question. So please don't take personal members who objects or have different opinions.

    This is my only concern.


    1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (New International Version, ©2010)

    19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil.

    If we are not careful those who are weak christians can get mixed up with occult practices. If no one objected or shared a separate opinion we may had more people saying " yes I've had the 11:11 thing " And that is not hard, we experience 11:11 twice in a wake cycle, ( people like me who go to bed after 12am ) 11:11 can be seen at the airport as arrival time, it's on my train schedule.

    Almost 90% of the people advertising this 3am also talked about having psychic abilities. They were involved in E.S.P lets be real , straight up witchcraft. These things were evident to me in the beginning. Why I couldn't see it ? I probably did not want to see it.

    So I want to show you something, maybe you did not want to see about
    11:11

    Let us pray..Father God we praise you for you are a Holy God , there is none like you. As we do this study Lord, protect our minds and our hearts. Silent every deceiving tongue, let your Holy spirit protect us, guard our hearts from evil. let the enemy have no place in this conversation. Demons you have no authority in our lives so be silent and let God's word be spoken. Holy Spirit we need you at this hour, as I post these things break whatever chains make be upon us, create in us a clean heart. I do not want to glorify the devil's working so please guard our hearts, this is for education purposes and not for the enemy to have a open door in our lives. I thank you Lord for the blood of the lamb, for the freedom you've given us. Protect us Lord, protect this site Lord from evil,that no evil would attack itself to any member..Thank you Heavenly Father

    My disclaimer
    I'm only posting this info as reference, I'm not promoting these beliefs for copyrights purposes I have to say my source. Use this material responsibly. There's no need to go on this site or any other site like this to get more understanding. In no way am I suggesting the person who started this thread is involve or share these beliefs

    Like I found the 3am connection with the occult, I found a new age group associated with 11:11 phenomena. Again I am not saying this is what's you're doing

    This poor George have been entertaining demons for 60yrs and leading more people to entertain them.

    God gave us free will, in the end it's your choice what you choice to believe. I just want you to test these experiences make sure the enemy is not conditioning you for something. Be ready to listen , don't just ask Gd to show you a sign, the devil can make signs too. Listen, if you don't trust the voice go to the word. The Bible has the answers for everything.

    Hope I didn't take over your thread, it's not my intention just sharing what God protected me from.

    God bless you in your search on what these experiences mean to you.

    So.. I just came across this thread from a google search, finding it was posted and chatted 2 1/2 years ago. I usually am not that ignorant to things happening around me. Just this past year, my sisters became involved with someone - a friend - that has claimed this very thing. She even writes a magazine called 11:11 published in Charleston SC. Now, she plans to go on tour, beginning this month, with my sisters, her children and a couple others, to share her story, and her conversations with the universe. She blacked out one day in 'prayer' and woke up to see 11:11 everywhere, and this is when she said the universe began speaking to her.
    My family has been involved in many things through the years, but this has be concerned, and in much prayer. I would love any current knowledge of this, and your prayers that this journey, which will happen in 66 cities, doing 66 shows in the US and Canada over the next year, be thwarted if in opposition to God. Thank you so much!

    God speaks to each of us, if we are willing and able to hear Him. To Elijah it was in a still small voice, but to me it may through numbers as it happened to the sister in the OP. Deciding that God cannot move or speak in a particular way can quench the Holy Spirit. None of us who are believers want that.

    Let us give God the glory for every time that He speaks to us and we hear Him... even if the vehicle He uses happens to be numbers

    As far as the 11:11- you could do pick any combination and come up with a cool selection of scriptures. in fact the chapter and verse numbers were added long after the Bible was written; these were inserted for ease of finding scripture but not for mystic revelation.

    @amadeus2 . . . In this situation, I have not heard of any instances of God speaking through this, but the universe. If this were an attempt to bring others to God, even through vague language, I would hear some reference to Him/Christ. Since I do not, I do have concerns. I think it wise to beware. I do believe God speaks through many avenues, and we are to seek His voice. I would not want to quench the Spirit either. Sometimes He may use coincidences, even numbers to get our attention, but I do believe it would always be to bring us back to Himself, and He would be at the center. Thanks for your response:).

    We should all have concerns when any doubt comes into our heart. The best way, as always, to beware is to stay on the Lord's side. If God be for us, who can be against us?

    My cautions were not intended to never listen but rather to, as you say, "seek His Voice". If He is always at our center, then we will always hear what He is saying to us. Unfortunately, too many, including myself, have been guilty too many times of quenching the Spirit.

    Help all of us to do better Lord!

    Hey All,

    I was led to this site and forum, but not exactly sure why. I see 11:11 all the time, and often screen capture it on my phone. I can't honestly tell anyone here that I believe it's divine intervention, chance, or something else altogether. I do know I get whispers that guide me in a direction away from the path I might have otherwise taken. For example, I was an overweight kid, youngest of 9, and raised in an LDS house and town (Mesa, AZ). I was only one of two siblings to graduate high school and I hated sports and physical activity. I wound up joining and serving in the Marines. I signed up my senior year at age 17, and missed the first Gulf War by a few months. I got married, had a couple of boys, and wound up getting a divorce at the same time I was getting out. I got out of the Marines on 12 Sep 2001 after going blind. My wife at the time was in the Pentagon when the plane hit. My birthday is on Veteran's Day, November 11th (11/11), and recently (within the past couple of years), I've been seeing 11:11 all the time. I'm not sure if it's binary code for something (1+2+4+8=15 hexadecimally) or what. I don't feel one way or the other about it, but it does give off the essence of that guiding voice I've heard throughout my life.

    Now, what's really interesting is that going blind (mostly, not totally) has been an interesting ride to say the least. I met my wonderful wife and daughter, who just happened to be working in Blind Rehab at the VA medical center in Tucson, AZ. I was the first child to get my bachelor's and masters degrees. I don't have to work, but it drives me crazy to sit around the house and do nothing. I went through a very rough time with massive depression, self-medication, anger, weight issues, and massive anxiety. After finishing my masters in December 2013, it's all gone away, except for some anxiety and depression. Most of it is pretty peaceful with little bumps every so often (not like the roller coaster from before). The thing is, I'm taking on the entire profession of Blind Rehab, because they have been doing some shady stuff with my certificate exam. In my life, I never had a run-in with the law, but for some reason now, I was compelled to file a discrimination complaint with the Attorney General's office. I don't want their money, I just want to see things right. ACVREP is the only certifying body for Blind Rehab professionals, and they are doing wrong to both a client and consumer. Other blind people in the field have had major issue with them, but didn't stand up to the bully. Somehow, I feel that this is the beginning of my calling; to advocate for the blind, to have to be blinded to understand what I'm fighting for. Going blind is not the path I would have voluntarily chosen for myself.

    So, long story short, I was led to this group for a reason. I'm not exactly sure why, but I was encouraged to share my story, as I believe it's supposed to be a guide a for others along their journey. Maybe 11:11 is just a signpost to let us all know who are looking for it, that you're on the path that's right for you. I'd like to think so anyway.

    Take care and be well.
    Dan

    As far as I can see, God created us to know the freedom of his love by which we would follow his will.

    Free-will is a very diverse subject and widely debated as to how it applys.

    But the one thing that is for certain is that the extent of the freedom most men make claim to today was an abuse of the freedom which God gave them.

    The time is short. There is no room for doubt about that. The heads of the nations are getting ready to destroy all religious freedom and that is the very next thing you will see.

    I cannot say as we who make claim to be Christian have not helped to bring this about. For we feud and argue like children unable to reach agreement on much. And that has turned multitudes against religion.

    I am not sure that your 11:11 theory is or is not anything. But, for now let us concentrate on storing up that incorruptable seed of life in us by trying to correctly understand it and make it a permanent part of us. For, it won't be long and what you have stored in your heart is all you will have.

    That period of time will not last long but it will last long enough to shake away those who did not have enough love to gather it into their hearts with understanding.

    The post you quoted is 3yrs old, there's no theory it's a response explaining 11:11 from a new age perspective.

    Wild, I didn't realize it was that old. I answered it because the pop-up suggestion directed me here.

    I guess I will have to start looking at the dates.

    Thank you.
