11:11, Biblical Prophecy and the 11th Hour Workers

dreamstime_287866Many people from all walks of life have begun to see 11:11 in various places, especially on their digital clocks, phones and computers. As this begins to happen more frequently, many of us may begin to ask ourselves “What does this mean?” and “Why am I seeing this now?”

If you still do not know what the 11:11 phenomenon is, it occurs when a person begins to feel drawn to look at the clock whenever it is 11:11.  The phenomenon may start with the number 11 but can extend to seeing other numbers combinations such as 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 12:12, etc.  Happening often enough, it begins to feel synchronistic. This synchronicity usually provokes the person who is noticing this phenomenon to search for answers or to feel they are being guided by angels or a supernatural force.  Because people can begin to wake in the night to see some of these number combinations, it is also linked to being a “wake up call.”

While there are many explanations for the phenomenon, what kept coming to me  was that it was connected to the idea of an 11th hour.  So, I took to the internet to see if there was anything written about the 11th hour that would seem to apply.  What I found was that the 11th hour was connected to a parable in Matthew. For those who are unfamiliar with the parable, it can be found in Matthew 20, KJV).

Here is what it says of the 11th hour within that parable (Matthew 20: 6-7, KJV):

And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.

I also found some sites that offered information on an approach taken toward the 11t hour by the Seventh Day Adventists.  This information seemed to fit in with why new-agers are beginning to see so many 11:11 prompts. According to Ellen G. White (an author and prophet who was part of the formation of the Seventh-Day Adventist’s Church), during the “11th hour”:

“The old truths will be presented, but they will be seen in a new light. There will be a new perception of truth, a clearness and a power that all will discern. Those who have the privilege of sitting under such a ministry will, if susceptible to the Holy Spirit’s influence, feel the energizing power of a new life. The fire of God’s love will be kindled within them. Their perceptive faculties will be quickened to discern the beauty and majesty of truth.” ~ Christ’s Object Lessons, Ellen G. White, pp. 130-131.

According to http://sdabol.org/11thhour.html, the 11th hour occurs during the time of Judgment (the second phase when those who are living are judged). During this last hour before Judgment, many laborers will be called into God’s service (to work in his vineyard) to teach others what they have learned.  So, this is how the 11th hour got its fame for being the last moment to atone or to choose a different path before it is too late and there is no longer the opportunity. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the 11th hour indicates:

“: the latest possible time before it is too late <still making changes at the eleventh hour>”

While there are many new-age sites pointing that 11:11 is an activation to ascension, the parable of Matthew (20:16) reminds us that not all who are “called” are “chosen”. To me 11:11 might represent that call which we then have a choice what to do with it.

Since, as mentioned previously, the 11th hour workers have been connected to the 144,000 that are sealed, we might want to know more about what the prophecy or the bible have to say about this group. According to the Book of Revelation:

“After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God. Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.” Revelation 7: 1 – 3

In essence, the 144,000 servants are “sealed” to protect them from harm during the tribulation. They seem to be present on earth post-rapture to evangelize the new world: Here is what www.gotquestions.org has to say about the 144000:

The 144,000 Jews are a sort of “first fruits” (Revelation 14:4) of a redeemed Israel which has been previously prophesied (Zechariah 12:10; Romans 11:25–27), and their mission seems to be to evangelize the post-rapture world and proclaim the gospel during the tribulation period. As a result of their ministry, millions—“a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language” (Revelation 7:9)—will come to faith in Christ.

So, the appearance of 11:11 (occurring during an 11th hour), likely are synchronistic prompts that call those who are to be “hired” as servants of God (who are able to see the truth) into spiritual service and atonement (at-one-ment); i.e. coming back into divine alignment with God. This is probably why people start seeing 11:11 when they begin to wake up spiritually. Many of them also feel compelled to communicate (evangelize) and enlighten others.

While each laborer gets paid a denarius for his labor, a problem occurs when the 11:11 call becomes overly attached to receiving monetary abundance rather than atonement. Even within the parable of Matthew, workers are cautioned not to be too greedy. Each receives a Denarius no matter how long they labored or how late they received a call. Some begin to grumble against the “goodman of the house” believing they deserve more. Then, the lord of the vineyard says to those who grumble (Matthew 20: 14-16);

Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

The Numerology of 11:11

Even numerology seems to connect the idea of Judgment with 11:11. The number 11 and the 11 card in the Tarot can represent “justice,” karma and atonement.  However, when working the negative vibration of 11, it indicates injustice, deceptions, the refusal to atone and the consequences of negative karma or bad decisions. Which, I find it interesting that for myself and others I have known, 11:11 can be seen more frequently when falling in love with Casanovas, players or being surrounded by people who are untrustworthy.  My advice is that if you are seeing 11:11 and if anything, even a “twin flame”, is leading to the feeling of obsession or oppression, the 11:11 prompts could be a directive to return to getting back on the inner path of alignment again.

The 1 energy represents the magician card in the Tarot. Upright, the magician uses his magic for good. He births good creations (fruits). In the negative the magician is self-serving, manipulative and a con artist. It represents the used-car-salesman mentality.

The 4 vibration (1+1+1+1= 4) can represent grounding or lack of it. So, if you see 11:11, note if you are overly striving in the outer world or burning out and whether you need to turn within again or connect with the One energy (rather than remaining in the separation consciousness that ideas of competition and striving to get ahead tend to foster). 4’s can also represent authority (the emperor card). So, note whether power is being used constructively or being abused in the greater world or in your environment.

11:11 can also represent a 2:2 vibration. This has led it to be linked to twin flames or the mirroring process. I tend to see our twin flame in a greater sense rather than representing a type of soulmate. We are all connected to everything, everyone and even to Mother Earth. Everything we do affects everything else in the Universe, and what is mirrored in the greater world can be symbolic for what exists within the mindset of the greater collective consciousness and its definitions and belief systems.

In Summary

In the end, 11:11 can mean whatever we want it to mean. It can be used to move us forward on our path or to keep us stuck. If we want to see 11:11 for self-service, we will likely see it frequently and use it to validate our striving toward our personal goals. However, if we recognize that the Earth is at an 11th hour crux and feel motivated to answer a call, we can be laborers in God’s vineyard at a time they are most needed on Earth.
