Many Z3ers have shared testimonies of frequently seeing the number 11:11 or 1111 on clocks. They just happen to look at it at precisely that time, or they see it other places.
An unbeliever would likely dismiss these sightings as coincidence, but for those who are eager to hear what God is saying, it is worth looking into further. I was reminded of these testimonies when I read the following comment posted today by Christine.
“I had a dream about three years ago where my husband and I were in a church that was filled with people. It was so full we were shoulder to shoulder. I heard a loud voice say, “On the eleventh day of the eleventh month…” and then I woke up. The thing is that the church I dreamed about is the church I attend today. It is a very small country church. In the dream I felt it was like a refuge, a place people walked to for safety and to be with the Lord. I had never been in this church until about a year ago. When I woke up, I knew it was from the Lord.”
There it is again, 11/11, but what does it mean? I believe it’s God’s way of asking us, “Do you know what time it is? Do you understand the significance of this hour? Do you see what the mighty things I am doing in the earth today? Do you know what I am about to do for you?”
The events happening today are so significant, God revealed them to His prophets thousands of years ago, as recorded by the prophet Isaiah:
11 Then it will happen on that day that the Lord will again recover the second time with His hand the remnant of His people, who will remain, from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And He will lift up a standard for the nations and assemble the banished ones of Israel, and will gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.” (Isaiah 11:11-12)
God is going to do something He did once before, gathering the people of Israel from places where they were scattered and returning them to their land. No nation in history has ever re-assembled as a nation after being conquered, destroyed, and scattered throughout the earth, but Israel has done it twice, the first time after their exile in Babylon and the second time with the rebirth of modern Israel in 1948.
However, the story of modern Israel is still unfolding. Next year, they will celebrate their 70th anniversary, but even after all that time, many Jewish people still live in other nations. By some estimates, there are more Jewish people living in the United States today (7.0 million) than in Israel (6.4 million). Many others are living in France (465,000), Canada (385,000), United Kingdom (270,000), Russia (186,000), and in just about every other nation. (Source: Wikipedia) Fewer than half the Jewish people have returned to Israel so far, so Isaiah 11:11 remains only partially fulfilled. The Jewish people who remain scattered throughout the world today will eventually make aliyah, which means they will “go up to Israel.”
As long as they continue to enjoy peace and prosperity in other nations, they are likely to stay there indefinitely, but the prophecy tells us they will change their minds and migrate back to Israel. God has promised to gather them there.
It sounds unlikely to the world because they don’t see what’s coming next, but God is going to shake His Jewish people out of their comfort zones until they realize they must return home to Israel. What would cause them to do this? We are already seeing the beginning of it today, the rise of antisemitism throughout the world, the irrational hatred for the Jewish people. In the past few years, it has increased rapidly due to the spread of Islam combined with the rapid migration of Muslims into non-Muslim nations throughout the world.
Hatred for the Jewish people comes from Satan. He foolishly believes he can derail end-time prophecies, thereby preventing the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to deliver His people in Israel. Jesus has promised to return to Mount Zion in Jerusalem (Revelation 14:1). Satan has been doing everything he can to stop that by trying to destroy the Jewish people and the nation of Israel, but he has failed at every turn and his time is running out.
Why should we care about the return of the Jewish people to Israel? Their story is a prophetic marker for our story. As their story unfolds in the seen realm, our story is unfolding in the unseen realm. The same God who promised to gather the remnant of Israel has promised to gather the remnant of His righteous ones. As we see them returning to their land, we know the day is drawing near when He will come and take us to our promised land. The same God who watches over Israel watches over us. When we see the Jewish people returning to their land, we should remember His promises to us, His sign will appear in the sky and all the people of the earth will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with power and great glory. Then He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. (Matthew 24:30-31)
So the next time we see 11:11, we should remember God is moving mightily in our behalf to bring us into our land. Let’s remember what time it is!
