Editor’s note: Today is the 13th anniversary of the world famous “terrorist” event that took place in New York on September 11, 2001 (BTW, by the context of its first occurrence in the Bible, the number 13 carries the meaning of “rebellion”). The reason we put the word “terrorist” in brackets is because many do not know the spiritual meaning of this event and its trumpet-blowing significance in terms of Biblical prophecies. It was indeed a bloody and horrible event, but more bloody events are coming and some of them have already shown up such as chaos in Middle East and especially in Syria, disappearance of MH/MAS 370 (370 is one of nine numerical roots) and the downing of MH/MAS 17 (the number 17’s root is 371), conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the beheading of James and Steven (in the Bible James was the first martyr among the 12 disciples and Stephen was the first martyr among the 7 deacons). Only true Christians know deep in heart that September 11 was God’s stern warning to America and the whole world out of His passion for the souls of all mankind that He wants to save out of the final lake of fire. Here we take certain parts from the English translation of the booklet “Waking Up at the Midnight Cry” in order to remember this event on its spiritual level.
This booklet talks in several occasions about the September-11 event and its spiritual significance. The following is a collection of many of them. Even though connecting words are added to combine different segments together, still the whole assembly may not sound as smooth as in the book’s original context. Right now We have finished the first round of its English translation, but we have not finished the proof-reading and editing. If you have a burden to help us in this regard, please contact us. Thanks!
To begin with, the spiritual meaning of 911 starts with Hebrew’s 22 letters. Read on… (If you want to see this post’s original Chinese equivalence, please click here)
We know that the Old Testament was written mainly in Hebrew. God selected this language to write the Bible which in itself must have some hidden and deep meanings associated with it. There are a total of 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, each letter with its own distinct meaning and carrying a close and natural connection to a certain number.
These 22 letters start with the number 1 and end with the number 22, corresponding to what the Lord Jesus proclaimed in Greek:
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” (Revelation 22:13)
Jesus’ earthly ministry started from taking disciples in Galilee and ended with His after-resurrection meeting with them at an appointed mountain in Galilee. Galilee literally means “circuit” or “wheel” indicating that the Lord started His work from position 1 of the “wheel” and ended it at position 22 of the same “wheel”.
Among the 22 Hebrew letters, there is one letter that is closely connected with the Last Days, i.e. the 20th Hebrew letter. This letter’s original meaning is “head” and its extended meaning is “beginning.” In other words, when you see 20, it means that you are about to enter into a new start and this new start will quickly bump head-on with 22, after which all will be finished.
To go deeper into the meanings of the number 20, please read the book “Numbers & Roots of Numbers in the Bible” published by TheoLogos Publications.
Some might ask, isn’t it true that we have already entered into the year of 2000? Even though the first year, 2001, did bring us the world’s shocking event of the September 11, afterwards everyday is just like the days of Lot, “people were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building” as usual with no “Great Flood” and no burning of modern-day “Sodom” in sight. How do you explain this?
This brings us back to further revelations that the Hebrew letters are about to show.
As mentioned earlier, the Hebrew alphabet contains 22 letters. The second last letter, i.e. the 21st letter, literally means “tooth”. You may not catch this word’s spiritual implication at the first glance.
However, when we recall how many times the Bible uses the phrase “there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” to describe the state of those who have been thrown “outside into the darkness” or “into the blazing furnace”, then you will know that the word “tooth” does carry a meaning of judgment. As for the verbs extended from this word’s root, “to cut to a point”, “to burn”, “to judge”, “to crush,” etc. you know what these words mean without the need for further explanation.
Since the 21st Hebrew letter symbolizes judgment, there must be a process of judgment to go through when we cross from the number 20 to 22. In other words, after we step into the year 2000 and proceed to meet Jesus, we must experience a short and judgmental period of time. And this period of time that lasts for several years, is the unprecedented Great Tribulation that the Bible prophesied long time ago.
When we step into the year 2000, we enter into the 21st century. You see, this century indeed starts with the number 21, indicating that as soon as we enter the 21st century we literally enter into a transition before the coming of Jesus. The most outstanding aspect of this transition period falls in its latter part, which is really the visual part of the Great Tribulation ordained by God to last for at least three and a half years.
Moreover this transition period corresponds with the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles.
The Jews celebrate seven feasts every year. Three of these are the Passover, the Pentecost and the Tabernacles. The last of these three major feasts, the Feast of the Tabernacles, is also the last of all seven feasts. Biblical tradition holds that the Feast of the Tabernacles, as the last of all feasts, symbolizes the second coming of Jesus. The Feast of Tabernacles naturally connects to the Feast of Trumpets and the Feast of Atonement as all three of these feasts fall in the seventh month of the Jewish calendar.
From the Feast of Trumpets, which starts on the first day of the seventh month, going through the Feast of Atonement as a transition, to the “eighth day” right after the Feast of Tabernacles*, the whole process lasts for a total of 22 days, corresponding exactly to the 22 Hebrew letters.
Therefore we see a closely related pattern here: 22 years having to be waited till we meet Jesus since we step into the year 2000 vs. 22 days having to be passed from the Feast of Trumpets to the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles. If this pattern of correlation is valid, then we should see that the event of September 11 that took place in the year 2001 virtually acted as the first trumpet sound in the Feast of Trumpets, declaring that we are stepping year by year toward the Feast of Tabernacles’ “eighth day,” i.e., “the last and greatest day” for the resurrection of mankind.
So far, do you at least perceive why we do not see many great changes since the year 2000 and how the 9-11 event has played its hidden yet significant role in all of this?
The Bible also has this verse as a warning for us:
“For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?” (1 Peter 4:17)
Strictly speaking, the unprecedented Great Tribulation period is meant for the judgment of the house of God, in order to further purify those who believe so that they will not fall into the Lake of Fire. Upon the actual second coming of Jesus, symbolized by the number 23, it will be too late even for believers to wake up. The reason is, the final judgment before the Great White Throne is reserved for all who do not wake up by obeying the gospel of God. As a result, all who are found to be in the rank of 666 after the Great White Throne judgment will have only one consequence left, i.e. being cast into the Lake of Fire.
Thus we have found the only correct answer for this question: Why do we not see the appearing of a New Heaven and New Earth that will be brought in by Jesus since we stepped into the year 2000? Because we have to go through a judgmental period signified by the number 21 before we can reach the destination represented by the number 22.
The whole Bible was written mostly in Hebrew and Greek. These two languages have one thing in common: Each word has a number associated with it. Therefore, we know that the number for “Cross” is 777 and 21 = 7+7+7 (three 7’s side by side are really 777). Thus we see further that the Great Judgment period signified by the number 21 is waiting for everyone to face his or her own cross before the number 22 meets with the number 1. This is what happens after we step into the year 2000 and meet head on with the 21st century.
When Jesus was on the Cross, two criminals were crucified on each side of Him. One of the two criminals repented and turned to the Lord and the other one hardened his heart till the very end. This is the best picture for the watershed scenario for all of us during the Great Tribulation period.
The book of Haggai prophesies about the heavenly “marriage” between the Bride and Bridegroom that will take place in the Last Days. This book is as short as consisting of two chapters but it mentions several dates that are complete with the year, the month and the day. One date shows up in this verse:
“on the twenty-first day of the seventh month, the word of the Lord came through the prophet Haggai.” (Haggai 2:1)
In the similar ordering of the month before the day as the above, you see the number 721 shows up here in this verse and this number belong to the same family of numbers as the number 2017.
It deserves our attention to note that, even though the numbers that are associated with chapters and verses of the Bible were added on by men at a later date, still they are not out of touch by the Holy Spirit. The phrase “on the twenty-first day of the seventh month” in the above verse, occurs in the beginning of the second chapter of Haggai. If we consider chapter one of Genesis as the first chapter of the whole Bible and we continue to count like this all the way to the book of Haggai, its second chapter happens to be the 911th chapter of the whole Bible.
You may know what really took place on the day of 911. But what you may not know is, the event of 911 is connected with both the forthcoming “festal” for the Feast of Tabernacles and the oncoming wedding “holiday” in heaven between the Lamb and His Bridegroom. The word “Haggai” literally means “festal” or “my holiday,” indicating that the message God proclaims is closely related to the events that must take place in the Last Days.
If we link all festivals that are celebrated in the seventh month of the Jewish calendar to the first 22 years after the year 2000, then the first year, 2001, coincides with the first Jewish holiday on the first day of the seventh month, i.e. the Feast of the Trumpets. Likewise, the year 2015 corresponds to the beginning of the seven-day Feast of Tabernacles and the last year 2022 “the last and greatest day” after the Feast of Tabernacles. Even when you view the year 2022 as 2023, it is not in principle off too much because when they are together “side by side”, the hair-thin gap between the two does not make too much a difference.
For this reason, the colliding and crashing sounds given out on the day of 911 were merely the consecutive warning trumpets for the whole world: the forthcoming “Feast of Tabernacles” could be counted by bending our fingers, and as we are about to enter this “never before and never after” Great Tribulation, the Lamb’s wedding banquet will also come and take place quickly.
Moreover, the first appearance of the number 911 occurs in Genesis’ 9th chapter and the 11th verse:
“I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”
Furthermore, if we render the first verse of the first chapter of Genesis as the first verse of the Bible as a whole, then count this way till we reach the 217th verse, we will reach the same 911 verse as the above, Genesis chapter 9 and verse 11.
The number 217 itself is really the first element of the three-element circulating root (271_352_160) appointed for 6, the number of mankind. At the same time the number 217 is the same family member of the number 2017. In other words, 911 in the past is closely related to 2017 in the future.
Firstly, we have seen how 911 is connected to the Great Flood of Noah. For this reason, the intermittent winds for anti-terrorism blow here and there all over the world. Secondly, the future “Great Flood” with waves and lightenings will come with a timely fashion and this is what we have to face no matter what. Along with this, however, comes the wonderful promise of a New Heaven and a New Earth that God prepares for those who trust Him. It depends on which standpoint you look at things.
As for whether or not something more shocking than the event of 911 will take place in the forthcoming year of 2017, we have to wait and see.
Note 1: The above is the assembly of several parts from the book “Waking Up at the Midnight Cry” concerning the September 11’s event. We also recommend that you read Bill Downie’s book “The September-11 Code: The Most Enlightening Revelations in 2000 Years” – click here for more info: NewBibleCode.com
Note 2: According to Ernest L. Martin’s concrete study, Jesus was most likely born on the dusk of September 11 of 3 BC.
