NOTE: The purpose of this article is intended in no way to trivialize, diminish, or discount the terrible tragedy that took place on September 11, 2001. Our hearts and prayers go out to the thousands of parents, husbands, wives, children and friends whose loved ones were senselessly and unmercifully murdered.
Neither is it intended to be a condemnation or judgement of America. As a proud American, I love my country, and consider it the greatest nation on earth.
This article is an examination of a phenomenon in the light of the Bible, Godís Word.
On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, the worst tragedy in the history of the United States occurred, as American Airlines Flight 11 bombed into the World Twin Tower. As authorities were frantically searching for what went wrong on Flight 11, just 55 minutes later, like a speeding missile, with 92 innocent people, American Airlines Flight 77 exploded through Twin Towers number two. No one who has seen the TV scenes of the airplanes turned deadly missile exploding into the Trade Center, full of innocent victims, can ever be the same.
In such a terrible and senseless tragedy, itís only natural to search for some possible "hidden" meaning. Is there a deeper reason for such a tragedy? Is God trying to get Americaís attention? Why did God allow something so evil to happen? Could something so devastating, so evil, so senseless, happen and God not have something to say?
Many people have emailed about the numerous occurrences of the number "eleven" found in the disastrous events associated with the September 11th World Trade Center Bombing.
Another sad occurence of the number 9 and 11 is found in the official number of people killed in the World Twin Towers: 2792.
Does the repeatedly occurrences of the number eleven have a deeper meaning?
Or are they just a weird coincident?
Note. There is also another unusual occurrences of another number that weíll look at later.
As any serious Bible student knows, God has specific meanings for certain numbers. Several books have been written about the Bible and numbers, such as, Biblical Mathematics by Ed. F. Vallowe, Bible Numerics by Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, Number in Scripture by E.W. Bullinger, Numbers in the Bible by Robert D. Johnston, and Triskaidekaphodia - The Fear Of The Number 13 by Dr. Paul Heaton.
Bulllinger, writes in his excellent book, Number in Scripture:
"The question which we have to answer is--Is number used with design or by chance? Surely if God uses it, it must be with infinite wisdom and with glorious perfection. And so it is. Each number has its own significance . . . Numbers, . . . and their secrets, hold an important place in the words as well as in the works of God. . ."
Ed Vallowe, writes in Biblical Mathematics:
"If the Bible is an inspired Book as it claims to be, are not its numbers as well as its words inspired? One of its books is called 'Numbers'. . . One out of every five Scriptures in the Bible contains a number. . .The Bible is a book from beginning to end that is built upon a vast system of numbers which is interwoven with the doctrines of the Word of God."One example of the Bible's unique meanings to numbers, is the dreaded number 666 Ė the mark of the Beast, mentioned in Revelation 13:18.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:18
The Bible clearly associated the number SIX with man. Rev. 13:18 reads ". ..for it is the number of a man. . "
This number-six-man correlation is found throughout the Bible.
Man was created on the SIXTH day:
And God said, Let us make MAN in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
SIX days for MAN to labour.
SIX days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
SIX days belonged to MAN, but the seventh to the Lord.
MAN could sow the land SIX years, but the seventh belonged to the Lord..
SIX years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;
SIX years the land belonged to MAN, but the seventh was the Lordsí.
Why? SIX belongs to MAN.There are SIXTY-SIX books of the Bible. The Bible is Godís message for MAN.
The word MAN occurs SIX times in Genesis chapter SIX. (verses 3,5,6, 2 times in 7, 9)
The word MAN occurs SIX times in II Chronicles chapter SIX. (verses 5,16,22,29,30,36)
The word MAN occurs SIX times in Galatians chapter SIX. (verses 1,3,4,5,7,17)
There are seven dispensations in the Bible. MAN is in control of SIX. The seventh dispensation (the millenium) the Lord is in control.
The seven dispensations are:
Joshua is the SIXTH book of the Old Testament:
The book of Joshua is:
Romans is the SIXTH book of the New Testament:
The book of Romans is:
The phrase "Son of MAN" is found in 84 (14 x SIX) verses in the New Testament. FOURTEEN is the number for DELIVERANCE and SIX is the number for MAN. Jesus Christ, the Son of MAN, came into the world to DELIVER (14) MAN (6).
Even the secular world of MAN is woven with the number SIX. The world may "boast" of the antiquity and irrelevance of the King James Bible, but they continually "testify" to itís truthfulness.
For instance, in the world system of MAN:
There are SIXty seconds (SIX x 10) in a minute.
You could not do it with ANY other number Ė try it! Pick ANY other number and try it!
There are SIX major members in the human body; head, torso, two arms and two legs.
Ever wondered why a MAN is buried SIX feet in the ground? Call your local cemetery and ask them why specifically SIX? Why not 7 or 8 or 5 etc.? WHY SIX? I personally called several cemeteries and asked them why SIX feet? None had any idea, other than thatís the "de facto standard". But, I know why. . . SIX is the number for man.
By the way, when TV produced a show on the "bionic MAN" what did they call it? You betchaí Ė The SIX million dollar man.
Wonder why? SIX is Godís number for MAN.
As you can plainly see, when God establishes a "number-relationship" it is certain.
What about the number eleven?
Is there a specific meaning connected with the number eleven found in the Word of God?
There are two clear meanings associated with the number eleven.
One meaning of the number "eleven" is urgent, the last chance, or something is about to happen.
This meaning is expressed in the "eleventh hour". The Lord Jesus Christ speaks of the number "eleven" only twice, both times in Matthew 20, in the phrase "the eleventh hour".
The "eleventh hour" is urgency, the last chance before something happens.
In Biblical times, a day was measured in 12 hour increments, from sunrise to sunset, and the twelfth hour was darkness and night. So the phrase the eleventh hour referred to the very last hour, the hour just before sunset.
In Matthew 20, the Lord Jesus coined the famous phrase "the eleventh hour". The "eleventh hour" has echoed through the years as a warning or urgency: "time is running out" Ė "the last possible moment."
A few secular definitions of the "eleventh hour":
Idiom Archive, writes:
InfoPlease, has under "the eleventh hour":
The number eleven is clearly connected with "the last chance".
Is the Lord sending America and the world an urgent "eleventh hour" warning? Are we standing at the "eleventh hour" before the "deadline"?
Are we watching the "eleventh hour" of a major event in human history?
Maybe. . .
The Bible plainly paints another portrait of the number eleven. One that unmistakably weaves throughout the Word of God.
And one that is much clearer. . . and much, much more alarming.
The Bible clearly associates the number eleven with "judgement".
THE FIRST JUDGEMENT AFTER THE FALL. . .
The first "judgement" executed upon mankind after the fall of man, resulted from Cain killing his brother Abel. The judgement was executed in Genesis chapter four verse "eleven".
Somebody's probably thinking. . . Whoa! Just a minute. . . The chapter and verse numbers aren't "inspired" there are no chapter and verse numbers in the "original Hebrew" manuscripts! So that eliminates any chapter/verse number "meanings".
If the chapters and numbers for the verses aren't "inspired" are the "vowels" and "spaces"? There are no vowels, spaces or lower case letters in the "original Hebrew" text. (also the Hebrew text read left to right).
If only the "original Hebrew" manuscript is inspired, etc. let's remove the spaces, vowels and lower case letters from the Old Testament! By doing so, can you read the following chapter?
Have we settled that?SLMFDVDTHLRDSMYSHPHRDSHLLNTWNTHMK
Are we ready to proceed?
Thank you. . . ;-)
THE SECOND JUDGEMENT WAS NOAHíS FLOOD. . .
The second judgment was the flood of Noahís day. The "judgement" was executed in Genesis chapter seven verse "eleven".
THE THIRD JUDGEMENT FELL UPON CANAAN. . .
Noah had three sons; Shem, Ham and Japheth. Because that Ham looked upon the "nakedness of his father" God executed judgement against Hamís son Canaan. Note: God couldnít curse Ham because God had already blessed Ham in Genesis 9:1, so the curse fell to Canaan.
Genesis 9:25, describes the judgement of Canaan:
Ever wondered why God "judged" Ham's son Canaan? Ham had at least four sons; Cush, Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan (Genesis 10:6). Why the curse on Canaan? Normally, the curse or blessing is bestowed upon the first-born. Why the "cursed be Canaan"?
Was it because Canaan had "eleven" sons? The "curse of Canaan" was executed upon the "eleven" sons of Canaan.
THE JUDGEMENT AT THE TOWER OF BABEL. . .
The Bible describes the infamous "Tower of Babel". The Tower of Babel was Nimrodís attempt to bring in historyís heralded "one-world-order". And God executed judgement on Nimrod and company by confounding their language, so they couldnít understand each other:
The judgement on Nimrod occurred in Genesis chapter "eleven" verse seven.
THE JUDGEMENT OF THE MEN OF SODOM. . .
Because of the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. As the two angels came to Lotís house, the men of Sodom surrounded Lotís house, calling for Lot to let them have the men (the angels) for sexual perversion. And the two angels executed "judgement" on the men of Sodom by smiting them with blindness. The judgement was executed in Genesis chapter 19 verse "eleven":
THE JUDGEMENT OF EGYPT. . .
In B.C. 1700, the children of Israel were slaves to Egypt. And God called a man named Moses to deliver Israel to the "promised land". But Pharaoh, king of Egypt refused to let Israel go. Because Pharaoh, king of Egypt refused to release the children of Israel, the Lord executed "eleven" judgements against Egypt:
THE JUDGEMENT OF ISRAEL. . .
After the Lord God delivered Israel from the bondage of Egypt, Israel was to return to the land promised to Abraham in Genesis 17:8. As the children of Israel came close to the promised land, in Numbers 13, they stopped at Kadeshbarnea. There, they sent out twelve men, one from each tribe, to search out the promised land. Even though, the Lord God had already promised the land to Israel, when the spies returned "eleven" elected not to go in and possess the "promised land". In Numbers 13:30, it was only, Caleb that said, ". . .Let us go up at once, and possess it;. . ." The other "eleven", the Bible says in Numbers 13:32, brought back an "evil report".
Because of the evil report of "eleven", Israel refused to go into the promised land. And "judgement" was executed on Israel as they wandered in the wilderness for forty years.
Because of "eleven" Ė judgement was executed upon Israel.
But thereís more. . .
In Deuteronomy 1:2, the Bible specifically tells us when Israel stopped in Kadeshbarnea, in Numbers 13, where the Lord executed the judgement upon Israel Ė it was an "eleven" days journey from Horeb!
If Israel would have only kept going! If Israel would have traveled twelve days Ė only one more day, they would have been in the God ordained, promised land. But because they stopped at "eleven" Ė judgement was executed upon Israel.
Is there any doubt "eleven" is Godís number for judgement?
But thereís much more evidence. . .
THE JUDGEMENT OF SAMSON. . .
Judgement was executed upon Samson because of "eleven" hundred pieces of silver. The Philistines paid Delilah "eleven" hundred pieces of silver to sell Samson out.
THE JUDGEMENT OF SOLOMON. . .
One of the keys for unlocking any specific meaning to certain numbers in the Bible is match the book number, chapter and verse with the selected number. Dr. Peter Ruckman explains this technique in his book, Bible Numerics:
"As a general practice in trying to find a number, the thing you do is find the number of that book Ė like if you are looking for eleven, you take the eleventh book in the Bible. Then when you have found the eleventh book, take the eleventh chapter and look at the eleventh verse."
Shall we try it?
The eleventh book is I Kings. I Kings 11:11 reads:
Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
I kings 11:11 is a obvious reference to judgement upon Solomon.
Solomon was the greatest, mightiest and wealthiest kingdom on earth during his day Ė ditto U.S.A. And because Solomon disobeyed Godís word, and "kept not my covenant and my statutes", God removed His blessing and protection from him Ė ditto U.S.A?
THE JUDGEMENT OF ISRAEL. . .
Only TWO Kings, Jehoiakim and Zedekiah, reigned "eleven" years in Israel and both brought terrible judgement upon Israel.
THE JUDGEMENT OF JEHOIAKIM. . .
2 Kings 23 and 2 Chronicles 36, reads judgement was executed during Jehoiakimís "eleven" year kingdom.
2 Kings 23:36 Ė 24:4
2 Chronicles 36:5-8
THE JUDGEMENT OF ZEDEKIAH. . .
2 Kings 24 and 2 Chronicles 36, tells of the judgement that was also executed during Zedekiahís "eleven" year kingdom. Notice also, in 25:2, Jerusalem was besieged "eleven" years before judgement fell.
2 Kings 24
2 Chron 36
Itís worth noting also, that Zedekiah was the "last chance" or "eleventh hour". Zedekiah was the last king. After Zedekiah, Nebuchadnezzar in 606 B.C. came and destroyed Israel. And the nation of Israel ceased to exist until 1948!
Zedekiah reigned "eleven" years, at the "eleventh hour" the "last chance" before judgement that was from the ". . .wrath of the LORD. . . till there was no remedy."
Is there any doubt "eleven" is Godís number for judgement?
Somebody is probably thinking, thatís all "just coincident". . .
Nothing is "just coincident" in the Word of God. . .
Every single word, every single number is EXACLTY what the Lord ordained.
Every single word, every single number is there for a purpose Ė nothing in the words of God is just coincident!
According to the Lord Jesus Christ, inspiration of the words of God, apply even to the smallest, "one jot or one tittle".
A "jot" is the smallest letter in the Greek or Hebrew. The "tittle" is accents and diacritical points. A "tittle" would be similar to the "dot" on our "i". In other words, a jot or tittle is the smallest stroke of the pen. And if, inspiration, preservation and fulfillment includes each "jot" or "tittle", then numbers in the Word of God, would certainly be inspired.
Even the world system, unknowingly, connects the number "eleven" with judgement.
In Brewer's Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Phrase and Fable, under the definition for "eleven plus", Brewer's writes:
"eleven plus The name given to the much-abused selection test formerly set to school-children at the age of eleven, or just over that age, and used in England and Wales as a means of judging their suitability for the various types of secondary education. . ."
Somebodyís probably thinking. . . You could do the same thing with any number.
Try it. . .
Show me any other number in the Bible, so clearly connected with judgement, especially major judgements. It's not there. Try it. Iíll be waiting. . .Email me
THE JUDGEMENT OF TYRUS. . .
THE JUDGEMENT OF PHAROAH KING OF EGYPT. . .
THE ELEVEN APOSTLES. . .
Judgement at Calvary was executed on the Lord Jesus Christ while there were "eleven" apostles.
The judgement of our sins was placed on the sinless, Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. He died as a curse. Godís judgement for sins was satisfied. (Isaiah 53:11)
Even though, the Lord Jesus taught and preached openly for over three years, it was only after the defection of Judas, and the "eleven" apostles that "judgement" was executed.
The Bible says, the night Judas defected, Jesus Christ was taken to the hall of "judgement":
Ever wondered why, in Acts chapter one, just before the Holy Spirit comes in Acts 2, that the apostles chose a replacement apostle for Judas? One reason is they needed twelve Apostles because they were promised to set upon twelve thrones, one for each tribe of Israel (Matt. 19:28) But could it also be . . . that the judgement had passed. And the "eleven" Apostles must now be "twelve" Apostles?
THE BIBLE - GOD'S JUDGEMENT ON MAN. . .
The number of books in the Bible is 66 or 6 x 11. "Six" is the number for man. "Eleven" is the number for judgement.
The Bible is Godís judgement on man.
Thatís one reason itís the most hated book on the earth. Thatís why the Bible has been burnt, condemned, mocked, forbidden, attacked throughout history. Thatís why people fight against having the simple Ten Commandments displayed. It "judges" them.
Hebrews 4:12 says, the Bible is a "discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart". A discerner is a judge.
All through the Bible, the words of God are referred to as "judgements".
In John 12:47-48, Jesus Christ, said the Bible shall "judge" us in the last day
Godís "66" (6 x 11) books are "judgements" (11) against (x) mankind (6). In fact, you can not even be saved, until you are "judged" by the Word of God and found guilty!.
Another interesting reference to the Word of God, "eleven" and judgement, occurs in Psalm 119.
The subject of Psalm 119, (which is the longest chapter in the Bible), is the word of God. Itís interesting, that the word "judgement" occurs 22 times in Psalm 119. 22 is 2 x 11. In the Bible, one of the meanings of the number "two" is a "witness". I also found it curious, that Psalm 119 = 1 + 1 + 9 = 11.
Matthew 18:16 says:
Itís interesting the book of Revelation has 22 chapters, 2 (witness) x 11 (judgement). The book of Revelation is the "testimony" (Rev. 1:2 Ė a testimony is a witness) of the Lord Jesus Christ, the faithful "witness" (Rev. 1:5) of the "judgement" of God. (Rev 6:17, 11:18, 14:10, 14;19, 15:1, 16:1, et al).
Guess what shows up in Revelation chapter 11? The "two" witnesses (hence 2 x 11 = 22)!
When Jesus Christ sent the Apostles out to be a witness, He sent them out "two and two":
Even today, every "witnessing" program or course, Iíve ever seen sends out the "witnesses" into groups of "two" (ditto Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, etc.). Also, every major event in the Bible, the Lord has at least two witnesses. Why do you think Moses took Joshua with him into Mount of God to receive the ten commandments (Exodus 24:13)?
The word of God is a "witness" (2) to the righteous "judgement" (11) of God.
The 22 (2 x 11) "judgements" in Psalm 119:
If you also notice in your Bible, Pslam 119, has 22 divisions (2 x 11) for the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. This is the only chapter in the Bible with such divisions. Interesting. . .
THE JUDGEMENT OF JESUS CHRIST. . .
Jesus Christ was 33 (3 x 11) years old when He died on Calvary. The number "three", in the Bible, clearly refers to deity, or God. Jesus Christ was God in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). When Jesus Christ died on Calvary, God (3) took our judgement (11).
Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT. . .
Interesting, when John was watching the Great White Throne judgement in Revelation 20, John saw "eleven" things, which just so happens to begin in verse "eleven".
There is no doubt. . . The number "eleven" is connected to judgement and urgency in the Word of God.
AND THE NUMBER SEVEN. . .
There is also found in the Bible and in the world an interconnection between the numbers "eleven" and "seven".
E.W. Bullinger, dedicates several pages in his book, Number in Scripture, to the "seven" and "eleven" combination. Bullinger writes:
"It is sufficient for our purpose now, merely to note that these two numbers, seven and 11, have been specially selected. . . that there is such a remarkable relation between them must be due to design. . .Why should it be these two numbers seven and 11? Why not any other two numbers? Or why two at all? Why not three? We may or may not be able to explain why, but we cannot close our eyes to the fact."
Bullinger lists several incredible relations between the number 7 and 11, such as:
As 7 is to 11 expresses also the ratio between the diameter of a circle and its semi-circumference; or between a semicircle and its chord.
The "7 and 11" combo has some interesting occurrences in the world system. For instance: The famous dice roll of "seven come eleven", or the famous chain of convenience stores of "Seven Eleven".
Itís also interesting that "seven" and "eleven" are the only two primary numbers that rhyme. Itís also worth noting that 7 = 3 + 4, and 11 = 5 + 6, and that 3,4,5,6 are a perfect arithmetic progression, and the product of 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 = 360. Our world is divided into 360 parts; for instance, there are 360 days in the Biblical year, 360 degrees in a circle, 360 degrees of longitude and latitude, and the "circle of heaven" used in the Zodiac is divided into 360 parts.
What about the number "seven" in scripture?
The meaning of the number seven is one of the clearest in scripture. It is the number for completion. This is found throughout scripture.
Peter Ruckman, writes in his book, Bible Numerics:
"Now we come to the number Seven. There is no need for a great deal of thought or research or study or consideration as Seven is so obviously the number of completion that it doesnít need any justification." (Peter S. Ruckman, Bible Numerics, p.23)
A few examples of the number seven and completion in the scriptures:
The Creation: (this is the first time the number seven occurs)
The last book in the Bible, the book of Revelation is filled with the number seven (59 times in Revelation):
For example, in the last book, Revelation, there are:
Why so many "sevens" in the book of Revelation. Because Revelation completes the plan of God Ė itís completed at seven.
A couple of other examples of seven and completion (and many, many more could be givien)
Rev 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
If "seven" is the number for completion, and if "eleven" is the number for judgement Ė is there a connection in the Word of God?
Did you notice that the "judgment" of the flood of Noah occurred in Genesis 7:11 and the "judgement" of the Tower of Babel occurred in Genesis 11:7? (Yes. There is a reason. . . You should be able to figure that one out.)
There is also some peculiar occurrences of the number "seven" in the World trade Center bombing Ė and significantly itís relationship to the number "eleven".
Does this mean, with the large number of occurrences of the number of "eleven", that God allowed the Trade Center bombing as a judgement on the US? Could this be a warning that America is heading for judgement?
Does the combination of "seven" and "eleven" mean that America is finished, complete, and headed for judgement?
Have you wondered, how did the greatest and most widespread surveillance technology in history fail to get a hint of the Trade Center bombing? With such elaborate spy technology as the NSAís Echelon, which captures every form of electronic communication, such as telephones, computers, emails, etc. how did we miss it? With spy satellite systems that can spot a tennis ball, with their "eye" on Bin Laden how did they not see something happening? How did countries like Israel, with world renown terrorism surveillance technology miss it? The Trade Center bombing was planned for over a year, involving hundreds of people, several countries, millions of dollars, passport fraud, airplane licenses, and scores of other "red flag" warnings and yet over and over everyone missed it! How? Congress has rightly, called for investigations into how in the world, with all our high-tech surveillance technology miss something this huge and elaborate. Itís almost as if somehow, 10,000 to 20,000 surveillance and spy personnel, were "blind" while all this went on. As Christians across America has asked, "Did God remove His protection from America?"
Is America heading for judgement?
To be honest, no one, but God knows.
This could be the "beginning of the end" of America the great, or the greatest days in Americaís history could be just around the corner.
No one knows for certain . . .
But one thing we do know for certain we will all stand before the judgement of God. . .
Make no mistake about it one day, you will stand before God.
One day you will die and you will stand before the judgement of God.
Hebrews 9:27 is very clear:
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGEMENT.
And friend, there is only ONE that can get you through that judgement. . . ONLY ONE!
The Lord Jesus Christ!Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Death is certain. . . One day you will die. . .
I remember seeing on TV, the wife of a man that died during the World Trade Center bombing. She was crying and saying, "It started off just like any other day. He got ready for work. Kissed me going out the door. And a few hours later heís dead! He had no warning!"
You could have been in the World Trade Centers. . .
This very minute you could very easily be in heaven or in hell.
It could be tomorrow, maybe next week, next year, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, 50 years . . .
Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
One thing is certain death is coming.
Friend, I want to ask you the most important question youíll ever answer. . .
Have you ever received the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour? Have you trusted the payment Jesus Christ made on the cross of Calvary for your sin?
To be honest, the real reason for this article is not the World Trade Center bombing, thatís mainly to get your attention to illustrate just how fragile and uncertain life is. The real reason for this article I do not want you to spend eternity in a lake of fire.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
When I first heard the tragic news of the World Trade Center bombing my very first thought was how many of those unsuspecting people were prepared to meet God?
Are you prepared to meet God?
One thing the World Trade Center certainly showed us death can happen in an unsuspecting second with no "last chance" of getting prepare to meet God.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGEMENT. Hebrews 9:27Friend, If you've never trusted the Lord Jesus Christ, you can be saved this minute on this computer.
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, ..." 1 Peter 2:24
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Pray this prayer, and mean it with all your heart.
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and unless you save me I am lost forever. I thank you for dying for me at Calvary. I come to you now, Lord the best way I know how, and ask you to save me. I now receive you as my Savior. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.
What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death?
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
