ELEVEN AND THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD
Most people just associate the biblical meaning of eleven with confusion
is always connected with the judgment of God. This is not only a difficult
article for me
to write but it is personal because the world is close to judgment; however
is already here in almost every country around the globe. Leaders are
cutting off the
very limb they are sitting on and the average person does not understand
the real issues in life (Confusion). There are only a few that understand
the disorder in
life and see that judgment is coming. When I talk to the average person
the most common
response I get is everything is normal.
The biblical meaning of number eleven is disorder and judgment.
The most obvious passage
in Scripture would be found in Revelation chapter 20: 11-15.
“(11) And I saw a (One) great
white throne, (Two) and Him that sat on it, from whose face
the earth and the heaven fled
away; and there was found no place for them. (12) (Three)
And I saw the dead, small and
great, stand before God; (Four) and the books were opened
(Five) and another book was
opened, which is the book of life: (Six) and the dead were
judged out of those things which
were written in the books, according to their works. (13)
(Seven) And the sea gave up the
dead which were in it; (Eight) and death and hell delivered
up the dead which were in them
(Nine) and they were judged every man according to their
works. (14) (Ten) And death and
hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
(15) (Eleven) And whosoever
was not found written in the book of life was cast into the
lake of fire.” Notice Jesus Christ
deliberated "Judgment" at number "Eleven" for all eternity.
There is also an example of this in the Old Testament.
When Moses was the massager
from God to the Pharaoh, God sent ten plagues and
then one final judgment which
killed all the attackers at the Red Sea. Jesus Christ
deliberated "Judgment" at number
"Eleven" for all the Egyptians who were relentlessly
attacking the Israelites.
(1) The plague of blood.( Exodus 7: 19-21) (2) The
plague of Frogs.(Exodus 8:1-7)
(3) The plague of lice.(Exodus 8:16-17) (4) The plague
of flies (Exodus 8: 21-24) (5)
The plague of Murrain (Exodus 9:1-7) (6) The plague
of Boils (Exodus: 9: 8-11) (7)
The plague of Hail (Exodus: 9-22-25) (8) The plague of
locusts (Exodus: 10:12-15) (9)
The plague of darkness (Exodus: 10:21-23) (10) The
plague of firstborn
(Exodus: 12: 29-30). The "Eleventh" judgment was th
e overthrow at the
Red Sea (Exodus: 14: 24-28). Jesus Christ deliberated
"Judgment" at number
"Eleven" for all eternity.
First the Egyptians hold the Israelites for 400 years
as slaves then 10 horrible
plagues from God take place and their hearts were
still hardened to the point
that they attacked them when they were leaving.
Evil is relentless. It will stop
at nothing unless God intervenes which He did and
that is called "Judgment."
At number "Eleven" God judged the Egyptians. The
Bible says harden not your
heart. God was patient but He finally had to judge.
We see leaders and people
like that today. I see them all the time. I don't think
the judgment of God is to
far off for this world.
For those of you that are being pursued by evil
because you are good then
I would suggest that you give the whole situation over
to God. If we have to
we should pray a couple times a day, "Lord I really need
to give this whole
thing in your hands because this chase from evil to my
life is to much for me
to carry. I am giving this weight over to you." God allows
evil in this world to
refine the righteous.
Noah pronounced judgment on Canaan in Genesis
9:20-25 and sure enough
in Genesis 10:15-18 Canaan had "Eleven" sons. God
controls birth. God
operates this whole universe but He does give us a
free will. We should
ask God to help us make the right choices.
"There are eleven days journey from Horeb by the
way of Mount Seir
unto Kadesh-Barnea." Deuteronomy 1:2. The reason
it took them "Eleven"
days is because judgment was pronounced at
Kadesh-Barnea because the
children of Israel refused to possess the promised
land because of fear.
This journey was the signature of God because of
His previous judgment.
God has already provided the victory for us. He just
wants us to possess
it by faith. When fear replaces faith then this is when
the problems start
to take root in our life. We should pray to the Lord
and ask Him for more
There are a couple more biblical truths I could give
you but it is not my
purpose to make this complicated. My motive is to
keep it simple. If the
biblical number ten stands for the law of God then
one added to ten is
eleven. If we do that in our life then disorder, confusion
will take place.
Twelve is the number for governmental perfection
but if one is subtracted
then the total is eleven. The same principle applies
because there was
perfection, now there is disorder and judgment.
Remember Jesus choose
twelve Apostles but Judas defected. He betrayed
Jesus with a kiss because
he allowed the devil to get into his mind. Look at
everything that happened.
Jesus went through horrible torture and He endured
that for us. They crucified
Him on the cross and Jesus Christ Himself was being
judged for our sins.
Judas felt so guilty that he hung himself. He was judged
after he died because
he certainly did not make it to heaven. There is not one
piece of evidence that
he repented. He didn't even give himself any time to repent
. The worst thing
g we can do is defect from the perfect government of God.
We should be content
with what God gave us and pursue what He has told us to do
because that is obedience.
Last I just want us to think about the fact that Jesus Christ
died for our sins. He took
our place by being the perfect sacrificial atonement for our
transgressions against God
. We are invited to repent of our sins and accept Jesus Christ
into our hearts as our very
own personal Savior and Lord. We can only do that because
Jesus died for our sins and
rose again from the dead on the third day. I trust that anyone
who has not made this
decision today/tonight will make that eternal choice right now
. This is the most important
decision you will ever make because it is an eternal choice.
God does not want anybody
to perish. He wants us to have everlasting life with Him in heaven
