I would also like to caution people when referring to a "rapture." Remember, the Rapture came from a young girl who had a dream in the 1800s, and a bunch of over-zealous people took that dream and spread the word until it became doctrine. Before that time, there was no such thing as a "rapture," and it's not even talked about in the scriptures.
In fact, the scriptures describe something entirely different.
i'm a bit rusty on my scripture memory, please enlighten on your view of the rapture!
and also, can one be christian without believing you are?? in your previous post did you say something about 11:11 being a wake-up? or were you just talking about its time for christians to wake up? because i refuse the title of christian in its current meaning and i see 11:11 all the time. *shrugs*
i'm not sure what it means yet, i do like this sereda's view on it, if only for wishful thinking!
but i do believe it is *something* don't know what though. at first i thought it was a catalyst for waking those up who are "ready" but i still see it quite a bit...so i wonder if there is more to it. i do know that it WAS a big catalyst for me, at least. and now 11:11 is only one of the many signs i get to tune in...so thats what it means for me, right now. to tune in and listen to your Self in that moment.
It is interesting to note that the Great Alignment of December 21, 2012 Winter Solstice – and the end of the Mayan Long Count cycle – will happen at exactly 11:11 a.m. Universal Time. Also, the date 12.21.2012 = 11.
The 11:11 phenomenon – as it is now called – seems to trigger encoded memories and it acts as a wake up call. While the sequence of 1 is the most specific, there is talk also about other combination of numbers or double digits, such as 2:22, 3:33 and so on, 10:10, 12:34, 12:12. etc.

I loathe fear mongering, and that's not my attempt here. I'm only passing on what I feel is a message that should go out to all people.
As a nation we (the US) has ignored God's call, and only fallen further from the path of righteousness. Other nations should heed the call as well.
We (the US) has done what it can to push God out of our lives. We can no longer wish someone Merry Christmas in public schools... people are ridiculed and punished for attempting to be Christian where and whenever they want. The government has set rules in place that prevent us from being what God wants us to be as a nation.
We were promised this land with conditions, and we are failing our part. The Red Dragon spoken of in Revelation, that lay in wait, is beginning to devour the child and the mother while we stand idly by.
While I believe it is God's ultimate wish, I cannot make everyone believe in Christ, that's personal choice. But to follow the righteous path and obey the commandments of God is where we need to be to receive His mercy in these latter days.
(Yes, I use the term "latter days", but I promise I am not a Mormon. LOL :lol
