THE SPIRITUAL AND SYNCHRONISTIC SYMBOLISM
compiled by Dee Finney
In binary numbers 7 is 111 and 15 is 1111
In the Gospel of Thomas - verse 111. Jesus said,
We were attacked in the U.S. on 9-11
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.
|3-19-93 - DREAM - (at noon nap) I was doing my
locksmith dispatch job. I had a phone number of a customer. The # was
111-1101. I reached an intriguing sounding man and we started a
conversation about how we might like to get better acquainted. He
asked me if he could call me back tomorrow. I gave him the phone # of
282-4111 and if he asked my name, I was going to tell him it was
Annie, the name I used when I lived in Washington State. There was a
young girl on the line at the same time. She called him General
Disturbance . pronounced 'Dis' - ter - BANCE'.
|6-1-98 - VISIONS - (I was laying behind Joe who was
sitting on the edge of the bed reading a book)
Dee heard, "Let us teach her the basics of lion training."
Dee went into a dream and found herself standing in the hallway of her old apartment building between apartments 111 and 105 which were across the hall from each other. A man came into the hallway, and went into apartment 111, to talk to Bob, the painter, (Bob is always dressed in white) The man started to tell Bob about an apartment in another building where people had just moved out. He told Bob about all the holes in the walls, and how badly it was trashed. He asked bob for an estimate of the cost to repair it and paint it white. When Dee realized what the man was there for, she opened the door to 105 and walked in, then woke up.
NOTE: Joe mentioned that the number 111 is one of the numbers
associated with Helios, the Sun from the "Magic square",
based on the number 6. Dee realized that apartment 105 = 6.
9-15-98 - DREAM - I was in a lunchroom like in a hospital cafeteria and the woman serving the food looked like the nurse in the hospital dream. She said, "Sorry I'm late. I've been doing a lot of driving today." She pointed at a computer to my left. On the screen to my left was a picture of Joe. She said, "You know I've looked at your program and I've never seen a picture of you two together.' I said, "Oh! I can show you where our pictures are side by side. As soon as you come back in, I'll show you." She said, "You know something? I've never seen a relationship like that work out." I said, "We've been together a whole year and we're very happy together." She said, "Well! I'll be back."
I didn't see her again and I got up to go home.
NOTE: On 9-16-98 a woman reporter from the New York Times approached us by e-mail and said she wanted to quote from our web site. It turned out that she wanted to quote from our positive co-creation page and the New York Times wanted a photographer to come out to the house to take photos of Joe and I together for the article. Kind of amazing, huh?
(continuing dream) I was standing on the lawn then at my 16th St. house and saw a grey/silver car coming down the alley. I thought that it was Joe coming home. But the car parked in the alley across from where I was standing. Nobody got out of it. The car was very small. I saw too, there was a very small garage door under the porch. Then I saw a sports car coming. It was even smaller than the 1st car. The driver wanted to get into the little garage and smashed into the little grey/silver car and pushed it forward out of the way. The little garage door slid upward then and the sports car slid inside a white "elevator"? and then the grey/silver car slid in also and the garage door closed.
I decided to go home then, because I saw a clock on the wall and it was 4:30 p.m. and I really needed to get home, but as I walked around the house, I was now at my Jackson St. apartment and I couldn't remember what my apartment number was. I knew it was an apartment I had lived in before but I had lived in several apartments over the years. Also, the apartments seemed to be arranged differently.
I was still wearing my green nightgown so I didn't want too many people to see me either. I started at #111 which was now the office. The boss was there, so I quickly sneaked back out and scooted over to the elevator. I managed to get the door closed before the boss got to the door. I got off on the 3rd floor. I used to live in #311 but the apartment wasn't in the same place as #111 above it like it should have.
I started walking up the hallway and a girl came from behind me and asked me if I knew where G. Fee lived. I said, "No!" I knew everyone who lived here before so I said, "It must be someone who just moved in." She rushed on and met someone in the hall who must have been G. Fee. The woman gave her a small cat in a cage and she hurried back towards the elevator with the cat in the cage.
I went a little further and came to a woman who was pushing a huge cat cage towards me. I could barely get past it in the hallway. After I passed the cat cage, I now realized I was carrying an infant kitten in my arms. It was similar to one which had just gotten killed at our home in Waterford. It was starting to squirm because it was tired of being carried. I would have preferred to be scampering along the hallway but I couldn't allow that to happen.
I was still looking for #311. I seemed to be nearing #315 which was in the corner. All the apartment doors were open along the hall. I asked the man in the apartment where I was if he knew what apartment I live in. He was in an apartment with double doors and was sitting in an all blue and white apartment. The table he sat at was round and was about 15 feet across or more and a matching blue and white couch and chair was behind him along the wall. The table cover was the same blue and white.
He suggested that I go back along the hall and go into every apartment I had ever been in and maybe I would recognize my own apartment.
I had lived on the second floor in #209 as well, but I had to start somewhere. I started back along the hallway and ended up in apartment #308. I tried to find my way out but none of the doors were where they used to be. All of the carpeting in these apartments had ugly light green carpet and I knew I never lived in one like that. In this particular one Sally ____ lived. She saw me and said that while I was there I should look at a stack of books she had just got form someone named Sherri. She said she had taken them but didn't have time to read them and I should just help myself to whatever I wanted.
I looked at the two stacks of books and got all excited. But the top few books were all cook books for stuff I couldn't eat because of my allergies...like pasta. Some others were cheap paperback novels and a set of small books that were shaped like a cumulus cloud. Each one of the books was about a particular star constellation, showed a picture of it and gave the mythological history of it and gave the names of the stars. So, I asked her if I could have the whole set and she said, "Yes!"
So, now I was carrying the books instead of the kitten. I don't remember setting the kitten down, but I probably did. I thanked her for the books excitedly made my way further along through the adjoined apartments because now I couldn't find the hallway. Every door I came to went somewhere else that didn't exist in real life. One went down some stairs to an outdoor balcony through a hidden staircase. I was really lost and never found my apartment and finally woke up.
NOTE: Because of several other dreams about star constellations, I intend to use this dream of finding these specific books to create a website about that subject.
|11-20-98 - DREAM - I was again in the apartment
building where the tall people lived. I had not yet started my job as
Manager. Two families of people came and asked to see apartments. I
went to my desk to see what apartments were available coming up. The
chair and the desk were piled high with mail that had to be read. I
picked up the list, saw that it was laid out differently from the way
I had managed the building the last time I worked here, but I liked
the new way.
One of the families didn't want to look at the closest apartment going to be available which was 111. so they had to sit and wait until I was done showing it. So, I took the other family across the hall and took my white telephone with me.
I was kind of in shock when I walked into the apartment. The man who was renting it was there. He had removed all the inner walls and was using it for a pool hall. These tables were square like bumper pool and there were 12 tables (maybe 16)
Someone plugged my phone in for me - but not in 111, but thru a passageway into 110. I looked around the apartment and saw that not only was this guy using his apartment for a business, there were hand prints (dirty and greasy) all over the walls. (Like he was desecrating the temple). I asked the man who was swarthy looking, wearing a grey suit, when he was leaving, thinking hopefully that he was being evicted for treating the apartment disrespectfully. He said he was leaving in January, maybe, but March for sure.
I thanked him for the information and asked for help to disconnect the phone because we were going to leave the apartment.
I saw there were 3 lines to the phone like it was a two line phone. nobody could get to the end where it was plugged into the wall, so I disconnected the wires on the phone end, then walked over to apartment 110, where the wires were plugged into the wall to retrieve them.
The old woman, who lived there was just arriving and got to the wires before I did. The names of the owners of the wires was written on them. She said, "Who is ZORA EMELYN HENRY?" I knew that was Joe's grandmother, - family rumors say she is descended from Patrick Henry and I was using HER phone.
I looked at the number of people on the application and I knew I couldn't rent to them. There were 9 people and that was too many for a two bedroom apartment. but I was obligated to take their application and would let them know after that they weren't qualified.
I then went out into the hallway to meet the other family who wanted to rent an apartment way over on the other end of the complex in apartment #101. I had to get walking shoes on to go over there. It was that far.
AS I was walking in the hallway, a girl said she needed to see the manager, not knowing it was me. The dryer door in the laundry was off the hinges and wouldn't dry her clothes. I told her I would see if there were two quarters in the office and she could throw her clothes into another dryer (there were 4 in a row) and she could get her laundry done and I would get reimbursed later.
As I was trying to get back to the office there was a rack of leather jackets hanging there, so many I could barely get past them. I was really annoyed because I used to keep the lobby neat and this was unacceptable. I finally got past the jackets into the inner hallway and there were two basketball teams standing there. The head guy said they all wanted to meet me and I looked and they were all 7 to 8 feet tall. I was astounded
I walked back into the office and two girls were gathering up a pile of loose change so I threw my own personal money into the pile hoping they'd come up with two quarters for the girl who needed to finish her laundry.
I then looked at the application for this second family. Knowing the first family wasn't qualified with 9 people, I knew this family wouldn't be qualified either because there were 25 people. Nevertheless I was obligated to show it to them knowing the COULD divide themselves up into smaller families to qualify.
I woke up as I saw them patiently waiting their turn and getting
up to go with me.
|12-19-98 - DREAM - I volunteered to babysit
for a tiny girl ... less than a year old. At the same time, I was
moving into a new apartment on Jackson St. and starting a new job.
I went to change her diaper. Everything was there but we had to make room to lay her down on a changing table. As soon as I lay her down and took off her wet diaper, she peed again and got me. I laughed and said, that was the first time a girl baby ever got me.
My boss was sitting in the office. It was like a combination of Ralph/Paul. As I walked by they gave me an order. He said, "First thing Monday morning at 7:45 a.m., I want you to sweep the gutters all the way around the buildings. I remember having my old maintenance man do that in the past. It wasn't that tough a job. A black man was moving from apartment 111 to 107 and I was moving into 106.
I saw a reflection of myself, wearing a longish black flowered dress and 3" spike heeled shoes. I carried the girl baby down to #106 to lay her down for a nap. She was already sleeping. I was given the key to my apartment but it seemed there was no door, that the apartment was an extension of the hallway. On the outside wall it was all windows.
|12-16-99 - I was moving into another apartment. They
weren't ready for me yet so the maintenance men ran down to apartment
111 and brought up a refrigerator. There were no shelf grids in it and
only one drawer on the bottom. If I wanted to use the
refrigerator, I would have to go get the rest of the parts myself, but
I didn't have the master
key for apartment 111. My only hope was that the door was left
See: Grid Shift and Alignment
I had moved into this apartment so fast the walls weren't painted yet and there were two doors by the front hallway that had white laminate over them with gold stars on it but they needed washing.
It seemed like it was awfully dark for the time of day. I thought it was about 4:30 p.m. but when I looked out the window and saw cars parked on the street facing the wrong way... this might have been a one way street going towards the right ...I looked at the clock and it was actually 7:30 p.m. (Later than you think?)
Some other girls had offered me chicken for dinner and I turned it down, but here I had two glass dishes of chicken breasts already breaded and cooked. All I had to do was heat them up. There were 8 in each clear square glass dish. I chose two chicken breasts and put them on a plate to put into the oven to heat. There were hot french-fries on top of the stove in a basket but frozen ones in the refrigerator. (See potato dreams)
This was a gas stove. I had a book of matches but when I attempted to light a match I saw that the matches were already burned too short, had no heads, or were already lit and hot but with no flame. I made sure no fires could start by putting them all into a tiny woven basket with other old matches that were glowing red on the heads. I couldn't figure out how the french-fries or the matches had gotten hot. I saw one pickle slice on the plate with them.
Two little boys came into the room to play with my things. They came from an open door on the back side wall of the apartment. They were mischievous little boys ... not bad boys ... but one of them enjoyed taking the wheels off of his toy cars which he brought with him.
I confronted the boys and told them that this was not a time to play... I knew they were going to try to light the matches.
I gave them a hug and kissed the leader of the two boys on the
cheek and whispered to him that they could come back another day when
I was more ready for them. Then I sent them back to their own apartment.
|2-23-00 - DREAM - I was in an apartment with my
husband. (I can't remember his face so I don't know who he was) He
complained that he didn't have any room to do anything by himself. I
showed him that we had two extra rooms that we didn't use for anything
though it had furniture in it which I recognized as belonging to my
I told my husband he could move the furniture around if he wanted to. There was an old fashioned, out of tune organ in one corner. There was a stereo and several kinds of rocking chairs which were my favorites. But I told him he could change anything he wanted to make it comfortable. That seemed to satisfy him.
There was another room that belonged to my son Michael. I glanced through the door and recognized a small trellis-like object sitting on a small table. I knew we couldn't take over that room because it was Michaels.
All of a sudden I heard an old fashioned organ below our feet in another apartment play the note of "A" like a trumpet. I just smiled and we continued our conversation.
The door to the hallway was open and I noted how narrow these doors were. I was friends with all the neighbors and the lady next door who I think might be Monica was my special friend.
I had just said that I wanted a cup of coffee and my friend said that she was just going to put on a fresh pot of coffee. So she brought a cup of coffee in for me and we sat on my bed amongst the blankets to talk.
Unfortunately, when she came in, the closet doors in my apartment popped open so she could see into them. I was a little embarrassed that she saw that my closets were so empty.
Another old man came in also. He was rather old and laid on the bed and covered himself up with two blankets, a white one and a red and white one. I asked him if he was warm enough and he said, "No!" So I covered him with another light blue blanket and he rather disappeared from view though we knew he was there.
My friend and I talked about how much larger our apartments would be if we took down the wall between our apartments. Then our rooms would be twice as big.
Just as I woke up, a booming voice from under the blankets aid, "Call it apartment 111."
NOTE: I sent this dream to Monica, and she said she just put up
a wall in the middle of a room to make two 'smaller' rooms. :-)
|1-2-03 - DREAM - I was in a huge place with lots of
people where the ceiling was 50 feet high.
A beautiful blonde woman came over to talk to me. She was my weight-loss coach - I had already lost 50 pounds with her help, still losing, and she was still helping me.
I went to change clothes and all the clothes in my closet were old-fashioned and too big. Now I needed to buy new clothes.
I had a vision then from the blonde woman - It said, "Your lucky number is: (The number was really long and couldn't all be seen at once) Some of the numbers within the sequence were 111 and 53214 - and other numbers - all run together.
I was trying to memorize the number because it was so long - and then the words 'Drivers License' appeared in front of the number, so I didn't need to memorize the numbers. All I needed was to get out my driver's license and look at it. I didn't remember that my California driver's license had those numbers in it, so I was going to get out my Wisconsin driver's license and look at it. 53214 is a zip code in Wisconsin, which might be a good clue to that.
I thought to myself, "I should play my driver's license number in the lottery and see if I can win." Then I started to think about what I would use the money for - to buy property and start my community.
I was feeling really good and I wanted to tell everyone about how great things were.
Then I was sitting on the bed in my bedroom and my daughter-in-law Becky came to visit. She was sitting on the bed across from me and handed me a copy of the Green Sheet from the Milwaukee Journal newspaper - (a now defunct section of that newspaper)
On the front sheet of the paper (it's 4 pages) was a death notice written by my mother (it was signed by her) it was one among 6 death notices. I was trying to figure out who died, and saw that there were number in the notice and it was written like it was 'future'.
By now T.M. showed up and I was trying to read him the death notice, but I couldn't see the numbers directly. I could only see them in the reflection of glass - but I couldn't read the numbers if I held it up to a mirror.
The first line said - "In 49 6 26/29 and another fraction under it which I can't remember. I was trying to read more of the notice and I could no longer see it.
Everyone had to go to work and they left, so I opened my bedroom door to go to the bathroom and get ready for work.
Out in the hallway, which was all white - was a cute little black girl about 4 years old.
I potched her on the butt with my hand gently and laughed and said, "Who are you?"
I then opened the door to my living room because she was headed that way.
In the living room - to my shock - was the little girl's mother, wearing a black dress. She was sitting at a table, writing a check for the rental on the apartment and all her furniture was already in the apartment - all dark African-tie-dye decorated stuff - it was wall to wall.
A tall, blonde woman was standing there, waiting for the check.
I was stunned and asked the blonde woman what was going on. I was the manager of this building, which made me the boss over her in the building where I lived. I should always be aware of what was going on and if changes were being made. Obviously, someone from higher up with greater authority had made this decision.
She said, "You're OUT! I could have told you that in your reading yesterday."
I was upset and stunned and angry all at the same time. I argued, and said, "You can't move someone into someone else's apartment before they even move out."
She said, "You're OUT and that's it!"
I knew I couldn't argue about the decision of a higher authority with an underling and ran across the room to gather up what was mine before the black woman could grab it and steal it from me. I picked up my makeup case and what I call my 'drug' bag - where I keep extra bottles of vitamins, etc. (both maroon), a blue book bag, a couple of brown purses - these were all laying on a credenza together.
I carried all these bags at once and headed for the door, but I didn't know where I was going to go.
I thought maybe I could call T.M. and ask where I should go - but I didn't even know if I had his phone number.
I woke up, feeling absolutely stunned and shocked at the sudden change and there had been no warning - knowing that if something is going to happen in 49 weeks, there is still time to prepare.
|9-4-04 - DREAM - I was at home in my apartment, and
moving furniture around, especially the beds. I was rearranging the
pillows and blankets.
I planned to sleep in one bed and then ended up in a different bed.
The phone rang and it was the boss calling. He asked, "When are you coming to work?"
The phone was crackling and the voice sounded like it was sparking with electricity and fire. I knew who it was - Ralph. (The Jewish Judge)
It was quarter to 3 in the afternoon - 2:45 p.m. and I hadn't gone to work - never even thought of it.
Instead of giving him an excuse - I pretended like I couldn't hear him. I said, "I'm sorry! I can't hear you!" and hung up.
I had a huge apartment, even though it looked empty of much furniture. I even thought about retiring and never going back to work again. I really liked managed the apartment buildings better - even when I had to clean them myself.
Some guys came in to fix the air conditioner. I didn't pay too much attention to what they were doing. When they left, I noticed that the telephone on my desk had been changed from a six-line phone to a single line phone with a white button on it.
I was now in my office which was just across the hall from my apartment. On my desk was a hug stack of mail for other people, but on top of it was a huge manila envelope addressed "TO DOLORES" and a note to call the engineer in charge of drafting whose number was 3636. The note said, "The girl in 111 is moving to 1313."
On my desk, under the envelope were papers wrapping up huge collections of fudge, Christmas candies, and other goodies. I wanted to sample them so much but I thought I'd better do my work first.
The air conditioner guys came back again to work on the same air conditioner. I tried to ignore them in pretense so the boss wouldn't know that I knew they had been there before. It didn't pay to know too much.
So, then I went back to researching for something on Kennedy in 1958. I still wasn't finding anything, so I went outside and saw that the doctors were decorating everything in stone - there was little dirt or grass left except around the picnic table.
I saw that my 'coat of many colors' afghan that I had crocheted many years ago had turned to stone.
Some little kids were going through a box of toys and they were turning to stone also.
I told the boys to take what they wanted out of the yard because everything in the yard was turning to stone including the metal and cardboard box. Everything would be buried in the stone eventually.
It was a tough climb and I was getting out of
breath. I counted the steps up to 110
The Catholic Catechism #111 states: But since Sacred Scripture is inspired, there is another and no less important principle of correct interpretation, without which Scripture would remain a dead letter. "Sacred Scripture must be read and interpreted in the light of the same Spirit by whom it was written."
A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE
The following is the cache copy of a page that has been removed from the web: It contains anti-11:11 opinions, however, he explains the concept of 11:11 meaning very well. Here it is in its entirety:
Dave Camp (10 Jan)
"111 and 1111"
I received an email a while back from a woman asking about 111 and 1111; the letter is shown below (with her name removed for privacy). The wife of a couple I meet with weekly for Bible study and discussion has recently been seeing 111 as well. Now that Tom has asked, too, perhaps this would be a good time to share my thoughts on these numbers. What follows consists mostly of my response to the woman's letter, plus additional comments and things that I have recently come across; hopefully it will help others out there, too.
The original letter
Do you have any idea what is the possible prophetic meaning of my often seeing 1's in succession. E.G., 111 or 1111 .
This has been happening far beyond a normal rate for over 5 years. Have you heard of it happening to anyone else?
In Him, ______
The first time I saw mention of 11:11 was last year on non-Christian websites (see below); I had also remembered seeing a posting about 11:11 relating to the solar eclipse over Jerusalem last August. Most of the remarks about 11:11 seemed to be nothing more than new-age drivel about channeling, enlightenment, etc.
When I read your email this morning, I used my favorite search engine to relocate these postings. Some words of caution are in order first, however.
Some background basics
We know that when Jesus said "I am the way," he qualified it by saying "No one comes to the Father but but me" (John 14.6). By this remark, then, He meant that He is the only way. (But you knew that, right?)
Yet Jesus also said "I am the truth"; thus He ultimately means "I am the only truth." If we believe this, then we must eventually realize that truth is not objective truth or just a collection of facts or data. Truth, then, is a Person and not mere knowledge (no wonder the world has a hard time understanding the Bible!)
Thus, when Jesus says the devil is a liar and there is no truth in him, Jesus is saying that He Himself is not in the devil at all. Jesus didn't mean that the devil can't make true statements; in fact, this is how he usually works to deceive us, by leading us away from God by saying things that are "true."
But why is this important? Very simply, because the devil can ultimately only copy the Lord, and in this sense appear to be true; to be an angel of light; to be the still, small voice within; etc.
This helps us understand how to look at worldly/satanic teaching and/or doctrine, because we then know that it's only a copy or distortion of some aspect of God, His person or His attributes (such as love, wisdom, etc).
Perhaps some examples are in order.
1) The various creation stories are not just myths, but distortions of the original creation story in Genesis. This is why there are many similarities between them.
2) Cults often draw people in because of the sense of community that they feel there; yet this sense is only a counterfeit to the unity that Jesus wants His church to have. If a Christian leaves the church for a cult, is the church, then, not guilty before the Lord, and especially so, as God meant that person to find the love and acceptance in the church, and they often leave because they did not!?
3) Channelling is a counterfeit of what God wishes us to be: Channels of His power and blessings to others, both without and within the Church walls.
So what's really going on here?
Who is Lord?
The common ground for many of these counterfeits is: "Who's in charge?", or, in Christian terms, "Who is Lord?" We know what our answer should be, but the world will accept anything but that! Man wants to be in charge of his own destiny; God wants exactly the opposite. Lordship is the principle here. Man desires the power that the Supernatural promises, but he wants to control it himself (even Christians can make this mistake!). God promises not only the power but the authority to wield that power to those who will follow Him with all their hearts, seeking His kingdom (Lordship) and His righteousness (Holiness) first (Matt.6.33).
Thus, for example, a worldly false seer will tend to glorify him/herself, rather than God; those who search for the "inner light" or the "light within" usually want it only for themselves and the illumination it will bring to them; etc.
So when we look at what the world (or the devil!) has to say or to offer, we must realize that we are often looking at a distortion of something that God has first said or offered. The distortion may be so great at times that there is seemingly no resemblance to the "original"; or the lie may be a combination of truths and half-truths: Sounding good, but ultimately leading us astray.
I hear voices (just One, we hope)!
There are many voices out there in the world, and we need to know our Shepherd very intimately in order to truly discern His voice. The Scriptures' teaching on this makes it very clear that this discernment is something that God wants all of us to have, not just a select few (Heb.5.14). Thus, going to others for the answer may at times be God's good or acceptable will for us, but his perfect will is that eventually we would all learn to go to Him first (and how to hear Him once we get there!).
Please take this as a warning and not a rebuke at this point. I have no idea who you've already asked about 11:11, or what answers you may or may not have received. And don't forget to test whatever I say here as well; it's a command and not an option (1Thes.5.21; 1Jn.4.1)!
It is with this kind of understanding, then, that I reviewed the material that I found on 11:11. Rather than tell you what I found there, I'll tell you what I see in the spirit. If you wish, you can then go back "out there" and compare notes ...
Now we can get back to your original question (finally!)
11:11 is a wake-up call (perhaps this perhaps explains why so many have seen this number on clock radios!):
Eph.5.14 Awake sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light!
The wake-up call could come on any of 5 (or more?) levels - and maybe more than one at the same time:
1) Church, wake up! The Lord is coming! Get Ready!
2) World/America, wake up! Your judgment is at hand!
3) Apostate Church, wake up! Your judgment is at hand, too!
4) Dead, awake! You will soon rise from your graves!
5) Israel, wake up! Your redemption draws near!
The wake-up call should perhaps be strongest for the watchmen, as they are the ones who are called to "see" what is coming, and wake up the others and tell them!
Matt.25.5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
Ps.121.4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
It seems to me that there is often a hidden contrast between sleep and slumber in the Scriptures. Whereas we can awake out of our sleep, slumber often seems to be deeper, requiring another to wake us up. How wonderful that our Father neither slumbers nor sleeps! The deeper sleep then, speak of the necessity of being in unity, for only then will there be others to help us "awake." Perhaps that's why we find "awake, awake" (one for sleepers, one for slumberers!) so often in Scripture ...
Prov.24.33-34 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 34 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
God often talks about judgment coming upon a people as labor ("travail") comes upon a pregnant woman; and didn't Jesus say something about His coming to those who aren't ready for His return being as the coming of a thief (whether armed or not)? Don't tell me the Old Testament isn't for us today!
1 is the number of God - unity. 111 and 1111, then, both seem to be intensive forms of a single-digit 1. Unity among the brethren was very much on our Lord's heart in His prayer to the Father in John 17. Part of the Lord's wake-up call in these last days is exactly that call to unity.
Ps.133.1,5 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! ... for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
Mal.2.10 Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
John 17.20-21 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee,that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
Eph.4.3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Col.3.14 And beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. [NAS]
111, then, reminds me of this familiar verse:
Eccl.4.12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
God is Light
With respect to order, 1 represents light, as God created it on the first day (Gen.1.3). Jesus said "I am the light"; that's why the tribe of Judah went first (Num.2.9) when the Israelites broke camp, since Jesus was of the tribe of Judah. Even here He has the preeminence (Col.1.18)! [By the way, note that the number of men in the tribe of Judah - 186,400 - is almost exactly the speed of light!]
111 and 1111 thus represent God/Jesus in His aspect of Light. Light exposes the darkness and the sin that it hides; thus these numbers also represent a call to repentance, both individually and corporately. Light also brings illumination and/or revelation; thus God is calling us to greater levels of obedience and intimacy (they go hand in hand).
Light also represents the dawning of a new day (the morning light, that is, when we usually awake). This is distorted into, for example, the dawning of the age of Aquarius; but that's certainly no reason to discard the concept! We are now entering into the Third Day since Jesus' appearing, and the Sixth Day of the 7000-year Week (there have been 6 Millenia since creation). And if a new age is upon us, then that means the present age must be preparing to close! Hmmm...
11:11 is said by many new-agers to be the number of the "Lightworkers"; but I think we can adopt (redeem!) this one back into the Church, don't you?
John 9.4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
1/9th in decimals is .111 or .1111; thus these numbers may signify the "overturning" that results from God's judgment, just as Jesus overturned the tables of the moneychangers (twice!: Once at the start of his ministry, and again just before His Passover). Since He did this as part of His cleansing of His Father's house for Passover (removing the leaven), the tie-in to coming judgment in the church (1Pet.4.17-18) becomes clear. Here, .111 speaks stronger than the .1111, as God overturns 3 times:
Ezek.21.27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it; and it shall be no more.
111 in binary is 7, which is the number of spiritual perfection (Bullinger); thus, can we not conclude that God's judgments are perfect?
Ps.19.9 the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
Ps.119.160 every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
Rev.16.7 Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
1111 in binary equals 15, which is yod-he in Hebrew; this is Yah (or Jah), one of God's names. Although it is found many times in the Hebrew, it's transliterated this way only once in the King James in Psalm 68:
Ps.68.4 extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH
Since this Psalm was originally written by King David to commemorate the bringing up of the Ark to Jerusalem (according to Bullinger's marginal notes), it tells us, if you will, that "God is coming to town!"
Vomit (yes, I'm serious!)
The Hebrew word qee [Strong's 6892] means "vomit"; here are all the verses (I think) using this word:
Isa.19.14 The Lord hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.
Isa.28.8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
Jer.48.26 Make ye him drunken: for he magnified himself against the Lord: Moab also shall wallow in his vomit, and he also shall be in derision.
An alternate spelling, qay,(without the yod), occurs in only one place (I think):
Prov.26.11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
Their gematria are as follows:
qee is (qoph)(yod)(aleph) = 100+10+1 = 111
qay is (qoph)(aleph) = 100+1 = 101
According to Bullinger, eleven "is the number which marks disorder, disorganization, imperfection, and disintegration." We then have 111 being "vomit," and 111 = 101x11 being "the vomiting out of disorder, imperfection, etc." If this doesn't seem to make any sense, consider this familiar verse:
Rev.3.16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue (vomit!) thee out of my mouth.
Thus both 111 and 1111 are warnings to the church of impending judgment! Will we judge ourselves rightly, so that we won't be judged when He comes (1Cor.11.31)? Or will we put it off, and be chastened in love, so that we are not condemned with the world (v.32)? The tie-in between the "tables" of Isaiah 28.6 and the Communion table, the main subject of the second half of 1 Corinthians 11, is then especially sobering, is it not? Scripture teaches that those who don't deal with sin in their lives eat and drink condemnation upon themselves whenever they come to the Lord's Table (vss. 27-29)! This attitude, which I've often called "grace abuse," is, unfortunately, very prevalent in the church today. Does anybody study Galatians anymore?
Peter even quotes the Proverbs verse when referring to those who, although saved, have returned to their sin:
2Pet.2.22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
2 Peter 2.22 = 2222 = 2x1111; coincidence?
Vomiting out of the people
Lev.20.22 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue (vomit) you not out.
God requires obedience, whether one is under the old or the new covenant. One of the penalties that Israel suffered by their disobedience was being vomited out of the land.
Rom.15.4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
1Cor.10.6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
Are we any different today in America? Many of our businesses, as well as their property and other capital assets, are now owned by overseas interests. Most (perhaps all) of our National Parks are under UN sovereignty. We sell and/or trade weapons, military technology and secrets to anyone who has the cash. The Chinese are possibly at our southern borders, and the Russians at our northern. Many of our "closed" military bases are full of UN troops, vehicles, and empty concentration camps. A recent headline (I forget where I saw it), in describing how the world sees America, pretty much summed it up: "From global policeman to Keystone cop." If our Nation doesn't repent soon, how can God not judge us?
Some 11:11 verses
These verses tie in with the above discussion nicely, and are thus presented without comment.
Jer.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.
John 11.11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
Larry Wood's "Numbers of History" webpage says that 111 has no direct reference in Scripture; he deduces its meaning to be "the witness of truth." I have referred to his page often, using it as a complement to Bullinger's book Numbers in Scripture, but it's been moved or taken down and I haven't been able to find it since (I have an older printout of it).

Some 11:11 websites
Jim Bramlett mentions 11:11 on his web page about signs in the Heavens:
The ones that follow are NOT Christian, so be very careful!
Joe Mason is a fellow who has an extensive website looking into all sorts of spiritual/newage/occult/etc. topics; yet he, and others who post their writings there, do cite from the Bible fairly often! The following is an extensive page discussing the solar eclipse at 11:11 on August 11, 1999, and how it links into many other topics. It's very interesting; yet it does show how 'lost' the lost really are!
[It also has links to all of Mason's 11:11-related pages]:
(Non-Christian) discussion of above eclipse, over Jerusalem:
John Ramses' 11:11 website (very new-agey!):
11:11 letters pages on Mason's website, Great Dreams:
(shows us how many "sheep without a shepherd" there are out there [sigh]):
11:11 web ring (a whole network of 11:11 websites!):
After reviewing much of the 1111 stuff, I get a feeling of despair and emptiness, as I often do when reading secular material. Why? Because the world has no standard by which to judge the truth they're seeking; thus they'll accept anything. On Mars hill, Paul likens those who are seeking God to people groping for Him, even though He is not far from them (Acts.17.27). The picture is of a man who is right next to God, but he can't see Him because he's blind! (The expression "so near, and yet so far" comes to mind...)
They quote the Bible, yet see it as just another source of information in their quest for truth. But God says that those who seek Him will find Him, if they do so wholeheartedly (Jer.29.13). Thus some will come to a saving knowledge, even while trying to "figure out this 11:11 stuff," if you will.
Paul rejoiced when the Gospel was preached, even if under pretense or with false motives (Phil.1.15-18); I think that we can rejoice when the Bible is read or studied by others, even when their motive is wrong, too, don't you? Thus, we should pray they find not just truth, but The Truth - Jesus!
Finally, please take the above thoughts only as a starting point, because:
Prov.11.14 In a multitude of counsellors there is safety.
PS - Thursday is 11 January 2001; is anyone going to write it as 11/1/1, I wonder?
teaches us (Summa
Theologica I:113:4) that only the lowest orders of angels
are sent to men,
and consequently that they alone are our guardians, though Scotus
would rather say that any of the members of the angelic
host may be sent to execute the Divine commands. Not only the
baptized, but every soul that cometh into the world receives a
guardian spirit; St.
Basil, however (Homily on Psalm 43), and possibly St.
Chrysostom (Homily 3 on Colossians) would hold that only Christians
were so privileged. Our guardian angels
can act upon our senses (I:111:4)
and upon our imaginations
not, however, upon our wills,
except "per modum suadentis", viz. by working on our intellect,
and thus upon our will,
through the senses and the imagination.
(I:106:2; and I:111:2).
Finally, they are not separated from us after death, but remain with
us in heaven,
not, however, to help us attain salvation,
but "ad aliquam illustrationem" (I:108:7,
The table below gives numbers that go together in a similar manner to make all the triplets:
This is the same information in the original format:
1 x 72 or 2 x 36 = 72 with
39 (3 x 13 or 2 x 19.5)
gives 72 + 39 = 111 (37 x 3)
Note the addition of "mirror" numbers 432 and 234 equate to 666. Interestingly, the magic square of the sun is based on a 6 x 6 grid of the numbers 1 through 36. Each row, column, and diagonal adds to 111. All the numbers add to 666. Opposing corners add to 37. Dee included information about the magic square of the sun on this page:
THE MAGIC SQUARE OF 666
THE 24 ELDERS AND THE GREAT BEAST 666
The Book of Revelation describes a Tree which has twelve manners of fruit. Only the zodiac has 12 fruits, such as were garnered by the 12 labours of Hercules.
Each of the 12 signs has positive and negative qualities, so Revelation speaks of the 24 elders around the throne of God. In like manner each sign of the zodiac measures 30 degrees in extent, and has three decanates, each of ten degrees, thus making a total of 36 decanates in the circle of the zodiac.
The Number of the Beast.
If we take the number 36 and add each number from 1 to 36 the total is 666. We are here describing the qualities which are inherent in the degree positions of the circle.
The row numbers add to 111.
Rather than being a Satanic Number, as is promulgated by so-called Christian doom-sayers, this Number 666 is actually a Qabalistic representation of the 6th Sephira Tiphareth, Harmony and Beauty, which is the Center of the Tree of Life in its manifestation of the Trinity, 111. Also note that 666 indicates the center of the 6th Chamber of the Qabalistic AIQ BKR, valued at 333 by Gematria. Now, the Astrological attribution of Tiphareth is the Sphere of the Sun, as well as the physical manifestation of the Child or Son. Correspondingly, the ancient Chaldean Astrologer's Magickal Square of the Sun consists of 6 x 6 = 36 squares numbered 1 through 36, the number 36 extending numerologically to 666. Like 888, 666 is an important musical number, for .666 is the ratio of the perfect fifth, the most powerful harmonic interval. --From Jesus Christ, Sun of God (Fidler)
Helios the physical sun is equated with the number 666.

THE CIRCLE COLUMN FROM THE HEART OF THE SUN
by Simon Burton
The sun breathes over a 76 year cycle, expanding and contracting like a great lung. When the sun expanding its girth, the subsequent sunspot cycle is a quiet one, with fewer sunspots. but when the sun breathes out, contracting in size, the sunspot peak that follows is high, with many sunspots. The two solar exhalations (contractions) in this century have been 1911 and 1987, both of which were associated with strong sunspot activities in the subsequent solar maxima.
While the solar breathing cycle is slow, 76 years, its heartbeat is quicker. The heart in the sun beats approximately once every eleven years, and it beats sunspots.
Sunspots are dark patches on the solar disk that may cover areas of thousands of millions of square kilometers.
The two solar hemispheres show an opposite polarity sequence. North polarity for a northerly p-spot and south polarity of the southerly p-spot.
At the changing from one cycle to another the polarities turn, so that the solar magnetic cycle possesses a period of two times 11 years. This is the 'double sunspot' cycle.
In 1990, during the period of the solar maximum, a crop circle appeared which looked like a dumb-bell.
The beat marks, normally appearing as two pairs of lines either side of the central bar of the cereological dumb-bell, put this symbol in a solar context: The two beats marks symbolize the heart-beats of a mighty heart that beats once every eleven years, but in a double cycle. The 11:11 beats are the heart beat of the sun, the solar sunspot cycle. coming in 1990, which year there would be only two 11-year solar heart-beats to reach 2012, the end of the Mayan Great Cycle. Then, in terms of the Mayan calendar, we were less than two heart-beats from eternity.
The Magic Square of the Sun
In Greek Gematria, Helios, the physical sun was assigned the basic number 6. The system used the basic numbers to create a "magic square," in this case a 6 by 6 square, forming 36 smaller squares within it. The numbers 1 through 36 are then placed in the squares, so that they add up to 111 by rows and diagonals. The number 666 comes from adding all the numbers from 1 to 36. Rev. 13:18 says that the number of man is 666.
1 Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
2 Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them.
3 Full of honor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 He has gained renown by his wonderful deeds; the LORD is gracious and merciful.
5 He provides food for those who fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the heritage of the nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.
8 They are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.
9 He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever.
|HINDU PRAYER MALAS
Malas, like other rosaries, are often used as counting devices
for keeping track of prayer or mantra repetitions. My yoga teacher
recently gave me a mantra to recite and encouraged me to recite it 100
times each day. He suggested at the time that I use a mala to do this.
He explained that the mala is a critical tool used to encourage the
union of mind and body. Since we are material beings the tactile act
of touching each bead of the mala helps to make the mantra more
tangible to us as we go about our spiritual work and brings mantra
into the body and into our beings.
