On 16 November 2016 (16/11/16) I again took my position as a watchman on the wall after an absence of seven days. I took no notice of the date or time lapse of seven days until I began scribing the post. These were of no concern at the time, as least not to me, but God.

Typing and editing was done and the word was posted. I didn't check the time or even notice until I went back to proof read the text and saw the time the article published; 11:11. In times past I frequently selected the time for the post to publish, this time I did not, but obviously God did.  Even in the smallest of details He is Sovereign.

I have heard the Jews say 'coincidence is not kosher' so I did an internet search and found:

The number eleven has to do with chaos, judgement, disorder. It is often seen paired with references to the chaos and disorder surrounding the end of time.

There are several books of the Bible whose 11th chapter and 11th verses reference events that have come to be associated with the end of times. These include Isaiah 11:11, Ezekiel 11:11, Daniel 11:11, and Revelation 11:11. In Genesis 11, man rebelled against God and built the Tower of Babel. John recorded 11 promises in his gospel, while in the book of Revelation he saw and recorded 11 things corresponding with God's final judgement. (A reading and study of these scriptures will prove most interesting).

The number seven is the number of completeness, divine perfection or something that is finished, as in the creation week in Genesis 1. In the book of Revelation, the number 7 is used more than fifty times: there are seven letters to seven churches in Asia, seven spirits before God’s throne (Revelation 1:4) seven golden lampstands (1:12), seven stars in Christ’s right hand (1:16), seven seals of God’s judgment (5:1), seven angels with seven trumpets (8:2)... 


The number sixteen is symbolic of love and loving. Even in the midst of judgment, chaos and disorder. Let us never forget how much our LORD truly loves and cares for His own.

  1. 11/22 (1963) Kennedy was assasinated on the 33rd parallel.
    11 x 2 = 22

    1. Living in such perilous times. The JFK assassination, an inside job. We must continue to pray for the salvation and safety of both DT, MP and their families. LORD bless.
