Posted on 10/16/2009 11:20:31 AM PDT by TaraP
I have read on many christian websites the numbers 11:11 have some kind of significance regarding the End Times.
I really never have paid much mind to 11:11 and what is written about it, but strangely enough within the last week, I woke up and looked at my digital clock and it said 11:11, I thought that's kinda wierd but went back to sleep and did not think about it.
However within a week it happened again, and that's when it struck me as more than a coinicidence, anyway's just wanted to find out your take on this? and if you have awoken lately to see 11:11 on your clock.
11:11 is a psychological phenomena because of the way the mind looks for pattern. As numbers on their own, they are no more significant than 55:55 or 8675309.
OMG, every time I look at my clock it is 7:11.......
Of course the clocks broken, but is that weird???
I guess I just never noticed waking up at 11:11
This is talked about on “Coast to Coast” a lot, by the way.
For a couple of years in college, I always woke up at precisely 7:14 ...
No, it wasn’t a sign to start doing quaaludes.
It's weird that you keep checking a broken clock for the time!
Same story, but 6:34 for me.
Oh No, the OBAMANATION!
You probably woke up many times and glanced at the clock, but because it is a number image with a pattern, it locks in the mind more than other times so you are more likely to remember that versus say, waking up at 12:15. After you noticed it the first time, you probably thought about it more than you realized, especially with all the internet stuff about it, so subconsciously, your mind is now looking for that pattern.
It is akin to buying a car, suddenly you see the same model every where. I recently bought my wife a new car, a model that is not very common (both from price and that the closest dealer is an hour away), yet on the way back to work from lunch, I saw three on the road. I rarely noticed it before. My mind looked for it and was more aware.
What do they have to say about it?
No, but 55:55 has major historical significances. It may be 55:55, or 55,55, or 5555, or other formats. At that, I bet now that you know to look for it, you may start seeing 5555 everywhere.
Her mom had commented that she liked 11:11 because it reminds her of a picket fence. The idea that my friend might be, subconciously, watching for 11:11 as a way to feel close to her mother has not occurred to her, as she seems surprised and delighted each time it happens (which is frequently).
LOL...it was satire......
Not that I know of, my FRiend.
Blessed Friday to you.
I guess, it’s the mind playing tricks, but like I said I never remember waking up to see the clock at 11:11 in fact I never usually wake up,and when I do it is usually after 2:am...
And to you as well Joya!
Not tricks, functioning as intended. Looking for patterns. You may never remember waking up because there is nothing to lock in the memory of waking up, yet, the average person wakes up between 3-5 times per night, some even more. I bet (not through expert knowledge) that you woke up once at that time, and in your drowsy state, your mind saw a pattern so it locked in the memory. That also locked in an even in your internal clock so your body and mind reacted to that pattern other times during the week. (just a wild guess).
11’th hour of the 11’th day of the 11’th month? Kinda WWI’ish.
Just that seeing 11:11 is a common phenomenon.
I’m in agreement with the poster who said you just notice it because of the arrangement of the identical digits.
OMG, 55:55 is my favorite time!
And 867309:867309 is my second favorite time!
And now I saw them both in the same post!
What are the friggin' odds!?!
5:57AM is the exact time I wake up every morning.
My alarm is set to go off at 6:00AM
My subconscious evidently hates to hear the alarm.
I see 9:11 (digital clocks) more now. Have been seeing the pattern since 9-11 happened. I don't doubt what you say one bit.
I bet you see 6862 a lot.
Sounds like a good enough hypothesis..
There is so much on 2010, 2011 and of course 2012 I think many people are locking into these years...
I am a 4:05 person myself. It is my alarm time so my mind is really trained to look for it. I see it in prices, spreadsheets, post numbers, etc, every day.
Not that I know of . . .
except . . . that there is some mention in Scripture of the 11th hour, IIRC.
There have been a lot of folks with your experience the last year or so.
Too many have had the experience for there to be absolutely nothing to it, imho.
has had a thread or two about it, IIRC.
I don’t think it’s all attributable to mere pattern stuff.
Curious. Beyond that, I don’t know.
I used to love seeing 714 on things.....not so much anymore.
THis psychologist agrees that we notice patterns above nonpatterns.
However, i don’t think that’s an adequate explanation for all the data on this matter.
Thanks Quix, I have heard of that as well although I don’t truly know what it means...
Crisis Response International (CRI)
Word for California - Updated: June 6th, 2008
Several local and national prophetic voices have been warning the Body of major natural disasters in California that will occur much sooner than many may think.
On Sunday, May 25th, 2008, four prophets from Kansas City, MO, showed up in San Jose with a strong word from the Lord. The Lord had been speaking to them for several years about a catastrophe coming to California. The Lord has recently released them, telling them to go preach in San Jose.
CRI Crisis Response International
Several years ago, God called these four prophets with a special mission to enter into regions before major catastrophes to prepare the church and provide disaster relief. They called their team CRI, or Crisis Response International. Six months before 9/11 hit, the Lord sent Sean Malone, one of the prophets, to cry out everyday for Manhattan. He was there when 9/11 happened, and a team of them worked with the local church afterwards to provide relief.. Five days before Hurricane Katrina hit, the Lord sent Sean and his family to New Orleans. Again, they were used of the Lord to minister to victims in the aftermath.
In one instance they were serving food at a soup kitchen, asking people, So why do you think this happened? Over and over again, the response was, God did this. We deserved it, and I repent. Hearts everywhere were tender and open to the gospel. The disaster had produced a huge harvest field.
One Monday morning in New Orleans, while they were ministering to the victims, a fiery baptism of the Holy Spirit broke out. Demons were being cast out and people were being healed. Prostitutes were hearing the audible voice of the Lord leading them block by block to the crisis center, and telling them to enter the building where the team was ministering. The Lord was pouring out His Holy Spirit in the midst of crisis.
The Lord showed this team that there would be three disasters to hit America. After the first one, the church would roll over and go back to sleep. After the second one, some of the church would wake up, but most would hit the snooze button and fall back asleep. By the third one, the crisis would be significant enough that the church would wake up for good. They believe that these three events refer to 9/11, Katrina, and now what will come to California.
Prophets have been speaking for many years about an earthquake as well as tsunami that would hit the coast of California. Sean had a dream in which he was on a beach in a place he later would identify as Half Moon Bay. In this dream, he saw the waters on the beach recede far out into the ocean. Knowing this was bad news, he began to run toward the hills, tied himself to a wooden post, and water rushed over him up to his neck.
In April of 2008, CRI received an email from Bob Joness secretary who said that he had just walked into her office and said, Big earthquake, California, sooner than we think.
Jeremiah 11:1-11 The Broken Covenant
The CRI team from Kansas City received repeated occurrences of the number 11-11, or 111. For example, they would show up to a hotel and get Room 111. They would throw their change onto the dresser and it would be 11 cents in one pocket and 11 cents in another. Sean would lay down on the bed and open up a book to Jeremiah 11:11. He would get ready to speak to a man named Jeremiah about California, when a friend would come up to him and say, Its 11:11, referring to what time it was at the moment.
This and countless other confirmations showed that the Lord was speaking about Jeremiah 11:1-11, which is a passage about the broken covenant of Israel. It talks about how Gods people turned their back on him to serve other idols and go after other gods. Therefore this is what the LORD says: I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them. (Jeremiah 11:11)
Then the Lord told Sean to go back and look at the Mayflower Compact, signed by the forefathers of America. It says that We hereby covenant ourselves to Almighty God. This nation is formed for the perpetuation of the gospel of Jesus Christ (paraphrased). It was signed on November 11th, or 11/11. America made a covenant with God when it was formed, but has strayed.
Pony Express: Prophetic Messengers Coming to California
And then the Lord started to speak about the Pony Express. For years, Sean had a post card with an advertisement for the Pony Express: Looking for young, 18 25 year old riders for the Pony Express. Turns out, Rod, one of these four from KC, is a former postmaster in Missouri. One day as they are on the road, the presence of God fills the car and Rod gets a manifestation as if he were grunting like a horse. Just then as they turn a bend on the road, they drive past a truck full of horses with the Pony Express logo on the side. The Pony Express, as it turns out, was a mail service that ran from Missouri to Sacramento, with the trip taking 11 days, both ways.
Before a disaster, the Lord would always send messengers with a warning for the people to repent. He sent Jonah to Nineveh to preach repentance. There needed to be widespread revelation in the land in order for the people to respond correctly.. CRI believes that God wants to rise up prophetic messengers with a message in their hearts for California. Currently they are training 44 young preachers in Missouri to come to California and proclaim the word of the Lord. There will be four bus loads of fiery preachers camping out on a mobile 24/7 prayer tent interceding and preaching all over the Bay Area. Lou Engle intends to bring 100+ young people as well from The Call to California to do the same thing.
Bob Joness Prophecies
On Saturday, May 24th, 2008, Bob Jones released a prophecy about California, saying that the cup of iniquity of California is full, and prayer cannot stop judgment for San Francisco and LA. He also had prophesied that there would be a few other indicators that the catastrophe was soon to come:
There would be a great quake in Japan first, followed by a great quake in California
When you see the evangelists leave the streets, then get ready, San Francisco.
The CRI team from Kansas City believes that these evangelists refer to the 44 young messengers the Lord is sending from Missouri to California to declare the word of the Lord.
Gods Heart in Judging a Nation
The Bible also says that there will be earthquakes, famines, wars and rumors of wars in the days leading up to the end times (Mark 13:8). In the midst of these inevitabilities, it is important to understand Gods heart in bringing catastrophe upon a nation. He is not a big bad angry God who simply wants to punish people for stepping out of line. Rather, He does everything in the name of love, disciplining those He cares about. He allows a measure of pain to produce a great amount of good. Scripture shows that the Lord often delivered the wayward Israelites into the hands of their enemies in order to bring them back to a covenant relationship with Him.
Protection for the Righteous
The Lord spoke to the team about Psalm 91:3. In one meeting, feathers started to rain from the ceiling, followed by a random phone call from a friend who said, Its Psalm 91:3. Shortly thereafter, a license plate they ordered showed up in the mail, with a picture of the Louisiana State bird and the numbers 913 on it.
This passage says that there is protection and deliverance for the ones who abide in Him.
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. (Psalm 91:3-4)
In light of these warnings, God is not calling his people to act out of fear or self-preservation, but to seek Him and trust in Him. He is calling them back to the secret place. Although it is good to be physically prepared, the only thing that will truly prepare us for the times ahead is intimacy with the Lord.
The Coming Revival
Many have heard by now about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Florida that is spreading around the globe. We all talk about Joel 2 and the Spirit being poured out upon all flesh in the last days, but we forget the context. The outpouring is for crisis. CRI believes that the Lord is raising up a Joel 2 army for major crisis that is coming.
One day, Sean was on the phone with a disaster relief coordinator from Morningstar Ministries in Charlotte, NC, who said that it was their belief that the Florida revival is a Joel 2 outpouring in preparation for an earthquake. He hung up the phone, and then got an email with a clipping of an April 22nd newspaper article in which the headline read, US ARMY PREPARES FOR MASSIVE QUAKE. Immediately after that, he received a second email from a secretary saying that well known prophet Bob Jones had just walked into her office and said, Big earthquake, California, sooner than we think.
This was again confirmed a few days later when Todd Bentley was honoring the fathers by having John Kilpatrick and Steve Hill from the previous revival in Pensacola, FL, on stage. John Kilpatrick, from the previous revival in Pensacola, FL, said that the Lord told him that one day a 3rd wave of revival was coming (speaking of this present one), but this revival was going to be different in that it would be in tandem with major end-time events. He then goes on to preach out of Joel 2 and describes a vision he had of an earthquake.
History has shown that there is no greater harvest field than the one that is borne out of the vacuum of crisis. This is a kairos moment for the church to become the hands and feet of Jesus and minister in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Respond By Praying
...For His people to have rest and intimacy with the Lord, staying rooted and grounded in love.
...For the body of Christ to be awakened and arise out of its slumber.
...For the Lord of the Harvest to send out his laborers to minister and become the hands and feet of Jesus.
...For an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and for a great harvest to come in.
Respond By Sharing the Word
Ezekiel 3:16-21 says that if a person has a word from the Lord and they have the opportunity to turn a wicked man from his ways, but doesnt, then the blood of this wicked person is on his hands. Since we have heard the word of the Lord, we have a responsibility to share it with people so that they have a chance to repent. There is still time for people to hear the gospel of Christ before disaster.
Respond By Being Ready to Serve
Did you know that showing up to volunteer at a disaster in America is a bad idea? You must be pre-trained to be useful; otherwise, you will be turned away.

Other Prophetic Words Regarding Calamities
Allen Hoods Dream
In December of 2007, Allen Hood from IHOP-KC had a dream in which he stood before the Lord, praying and interceding for revival in America. Just then, the Lord boomed, But Allen! What about the drunkenness of California? Just then, Allen began to cry out for mercy for California. And then he saw before him a scale, with judgment on one side and mercy on the other. The needle was pointed toward judgment, but as he prayed it shifted toward mercy, and when it came to the middle, the dream stopped. When Allen shared this at The Call in Kansas City, the Lord shifted the focus of the meeting and they spent hours crying out for California.
Bob Hartleys Prophecy
George W. Bush would have an opportunity to show great mercy to California before he leaves office.
Julie Meyers San Francisco Dream
I was standing right at the edge of the sea again and could see a great shaking. A great shaking will come right down the middle of San Francisco. It will be a city split in two, 1/2 covered by the mouth of the sea. Therefore God will stir the prophets of the nations to cry out again, Let the wicked turn to God and let the righteous man flee San Francisco for it is a city that will be split right down the middle. Let the wicked turn to God and let the righteous man flee San Francisco for it is a city that will be split right down the middle. Half will fall into the mouth of the great deep, the other will be barren covered by sand and the tides of the sea, no more bridges, no more highways over the ocean. They have been swallowed by the waters of the great deep.
GOD IS WARNING US TO WAKE UP AND PREPARE! By John Kilpatrick:
An EARTHQUAKE VISION and DREAM of the NEW MADRID FAULT
Prophetic Vision and Dream
John Kilpatrick was the pastor of the Brownsville revival in Pensacola. He has actually had two experiences that pointed to the possibility of something significant happening in the region related to the New Madrid fault. Naturally, it is not written from a fear-based perspective but from one of exercising wisdom and intercession in the event something is brewing in that region. I know Bob Jones saw something occurring along the same lines but had no perspective of the timing of it.
Paul Keith Davis - WhiteDove Ministries
Pastor Kilpatrick wants to share with his partners and friends the following vision and dream he had in April and May 2008. He has never posted a vision or dream on the internet, but after talking with some close friends, intercessors, as well as those in prophetic ministry he has agreed to do so. His intentions are not to alarm the Church or the public, but to forewarn us to pray concerning what he has seen. At this time, we do not have the full revelation or meaning of this vision and dream, but know that the Lord is trying to warn us and prepare us for the days ahead. Please help us pray to the Lord concerning this matter.
Sunday, April 27, 2008 - Vision
As I was approaching the Daphne Civic Center for Sunday morning service at Church of His Presence, I had a vision which lasted for about two or three seconds. In this vision, I saw the ground buckling before me. It was so real that I actually moved aside to avoid what I was seeing. I knew immediately that it was an earthquake, and the thought crossed my mind that the damages of this earthquake could have the potential to exceed those of Hurricane Katrina of 2005. Please understand that I am not saying that the Lord told me this. It merely crossed my mind.
Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - Dream
I awoke trembling and shaking at 5:00 in the morning after having a startling dream. This was one of the three most profound dreams that I have ever had during the ministry the LORD has called me to. I feel that this dream is an addendum to the vision I had on April 27, 2008.
In this dream I saw the words wind and water. I only saw the words but did not actually see any wind or water damage. I then found myself overlooking a river which instantly became so wide that I could no longer see either of its banks.
The dream then shifted, and I was with one of my parishioners running through what appeared to be an old abandoned school house. This empty building began to shake. The shaking was so violent and severe that it was like the bucking of a wild horse tossing us around. My teeth were clapping so hard from the impact that I tried to clench them to prevent this from happening.
In this dream I knew I was experiencing a massive earthquake. The sounds were so catastrophic that the thought crossed my mind that the devastation could likely exceed Hurricane Katrina of 2005. I did not see the devastation behind me; I only heard it. In all of my life I have never heard such catastrophic sounds. These were the scariest sounds I have ever heard.
The dream then shifted once more and concluded with two names on what appeared to be an old Spanish map. One name read Indianola and the other Europa. When I awoke, I was shaking as if I had chills and a fever. I could not stop trembling. All through the day I felt as if I had just had the dream 10 minutes ago.
This dream so shook me that my wife and I immediately went to the internet to do some research. I also contacted some close friends in the ministry and reliable intercessors concerning this dream. What we found was startling. There are towns called Indianola, IL; Europa, MO; and Indianola, MS. These towns run in a line from North to South with Europa, MO being near the middle of them. The Mississippi River runs between them with Europa, MO being by the epicenter of the New Madrid fault.
After seeing this, I believe the dream could be concerning a devastating earthquake on the New Madrid fault. Many reputable friends in ministry have felt that this dream was not to be interpreted as a spiritual dream because they felt that it has literal implications. Even now the intensity of this dream is the same.
I do not want to come across as an alarmist concerning what I saw. I also dont want to put fear in the public or the Body of Christ. However, I cannot help but feel that God gave me this as warning to prepare us for the days ahead and to pray concerning this matter.
Please know that I did not see any timeframe as to when this may happen. Please pray with me concerning this vision and dream.

John Kilpatrick - Church of His Presence
Same here. I notice 9:11 all the time.
Methinks God does not limit Himself to matching arbitrary patterns in manmade measurements. 11:11 happens twice every day, no big deal.
FWIW, for a long time I was keenly aware of looking at clocks at 1:28, 2:56 and 5:12 - numbers which are important to any hardcore computer geek.
The main point is that you happen to look at a clock (or other source of numbers), and notice those numbers which are meaningful to you, completely ignoring those numbers that aren’t, and ignoring those times you don’t see the meaningful numbers.
“The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius.
thanks Biblegateway.com word search.
My daughter, 11, says that yuo’re supposed to make a wish whenever the digital clock shows the same numbers; 5:55, 4:44, etc. I tell her that I will pray, but I don’t make wishes. Am I a bad dad?
But - the mind looks for patterns because patterns contain information.
Granted, sometimes the information is: "this pattern has no value."
But sometimes the pattern is: "this pattern is phi."
So analyzing paterns with other patterns like the scientific method, or recursive analysis, or whatever, is often necessary.
But if someday 11:11 is found to be the square-root of the interstellar drive, you'll have to take the pancake off the bunny's head.
Just google 11:11 and you will see what is out there....
I was just reading it in regards to Dreams and Visions in the Book of Joel..not sure of the scripture passage I have to look it up...
If 11:11 is found to be the square-root of an interstellar drive, I'll wear the pancake on my head for a day. I have no vested interest in being right or wrong, but I would do it because it was funny.
Speaking of something funny (ok, actually just simple math)..
1111 squared is 1234321
Conservatives are supposed to be the real reality based community, but signs on FR point to us becoming the same bunch of ooga-booga hysterics the libs are. “Oh no, pit bulls, road rage, Alar apples, 11:11...AAAAIIIIEEEEE!!”
Really, give me some sort of empirical evidence that more people are waking up at 11:11pm than were doing so last year, or ten years ago. Good grief.
