Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 11:1

Who are you imitating? Who is your hero?  Jesus came to demonstrate the Father’s heart. He came and changed the world. Today is a good day to do what Jesus did.

Declaration: I’m called a chosen generation and a royal priesthood. I proclaim the good news and set the captives free. I’m a world-changer.

God Speaks Through Numbers

If you aren’t sure yet if you can get on board with how God speaks to His people through numbers, let’s break down a date America will never forget – 9/11.

Nine is a number that represents judgment. Eleven is also a number that represents

Judgment, specifically when things are out of order. And, when nine and eleven are put together it says, judgment upon disorder.  

Let’s back up and begin with number one. It represents unity, two represents a faithful witness, three represents perfect completion, four represents creation, five represents grace, six represents flesh and humanity, seven is a perfect number, eight means new beginnings, and nine has to do with both sides of God’s divine judgment.

The positive, or redeemed side, of nine is fruit-bearing. The unredeemed side of nine is judgment. Judgment is what happens when the Spirit of God moves in a place He is not compatible with. Nine times Jerusalem was besieged in the Bible. There are nine biblical situations where fire came from heaven to earth. In Haggai chapter 1, God’s judgment is poured out on nine different things.

The number ten represents order. It’s when a new sheriff comes into town.

The number eleven is similar to nine because it also has a redeemed and unredeemed value. On the redeemed side, its heroes rise up. We find this in Hebrews chapter 11. We also have Apollo 11 and Veteran’s Day, which is 11/11, when we recognize heroes.

The non-redeemed side of eleven is disorder. We find this with Canaan, who had eleven sons, cursed by Noah, because his father, Ham, disrespected the order. He was also the 11th generation of Adam. We also find Samson, who lost everything because he did not put God and his calling first. It’s no coincidence that Delilah betrayed him for 1,100 pieces of silver.

Anytime the King is not allowed to be the King, judgment of disorder will come. The Bible assures us there is no escape from the harvest. When judgment comes and God Almighty says, “I need you to be sober about this,” we must remain in His order.

So how do we do this? We read His word daily, live each day in worship, and revere King Jesus for all He has done and is doing, and we seek His voice in the day-to-day – we look in the clouds, the stars, at numbers, everywhere.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

– John 10:27-28

God is constantly speaking. Are you hearing Him?
