November 11, 2023 – 11/11/2023
11 – Heroes Rising (+)
11 – Disorder (-)

Joshua 11:11 (NKJV) – And they struck all the people who were in it with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying them. There was none left breathing. Then he [Joshua] burned Hazor with fire.

The number eleven represents judgment, with the emphasis being “disorder.” It’s when things fall apart or disintegrate, when God’s judgment falls upon chaos. In the positive, 11 marks where God recognizes the faithfulness of people! It’s associated with valor and acts of selfless service. It’s when we see warriors rise up as overcomers and take hold of victory!

Declaration: I choose to be an overcomer and remain faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ. I will not cower in fear, but I will rise up as a warrior in the Kingdom of God! In Jesus’ name, Amen!


When God is speaking positively through the number 11, He likes to recognize victorious attributes of people. When people win huge battles of faith, He will stamp the number 11 on it. This number is associated with mighty deeds and extraordinary acts. The faith hall of fame is in Hebrews chapter 11. These common human beings were recognized as extraordinary by their faithfulness, so the chapter is marked by eleven!


We celebrate the heroes who have gone into battle on behalf of the United States on 11/11. World War I ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Davidd had 11 mighty warriors who left Saul and joined with him in 1 Chronicles 12:8-15! King Jesus was 33-years-old when He conquered sin and death at the Cross. That’s 11 x 3!


In the book of Revelation, the promises of God are only for those who overcome the end-time spirit of disorder that would rule before the King of kings and Lord of Lords comes back to clean house. So it makes sense that the word “overcometh” is in the Bible exactly 11 times. It is also no doubt significant that “overcome” would be in the Bible 22 times, or 11 x 2 times!


Joshua and Caleb, Phineas, Jehu, King David, King Jesus – you and I have a lineage of overcoming warriors who remained faithful to Yahweh. That is our inheritance! Friends, know that when you face battles and overwhelming circumstances, there are those who have gone before us and paved a path of steadfast faith and overcoming victory in the power of the Spirit of the Living God! We’re blessed, friends! And same as the Lord told Joshua, a mighty warrior, He tells us, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9 (NKJV)
