While this phenomenon of "11:11" isn't often talked about by Christians,as far as I know,it did take place in my life as well.
For years,from around 2001 to late in 2008,I had it happen over and over!
There was something "supernatural" to it,I was sure,but not sure of what!
It could mean different things to different people,depending on their specific orientation.I can only relate my own experience.
It was in 2008 that I began to "wake-up" to study prophecy and to turn my life over to God in a more meaningful way. One day,while reading the
Bible,I came across a scripture that caused what can only be described as a "religious experience"! I'm talking about shaking and crying and
feeling "electrified"!(Sounds kinda corny,I know. It's the only way I can describe it!)
"Concerning this salvation,the prophets,who spoke of the grace that was to come to you,searched intently and with the greatest care,trying to find
out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that
would follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you,when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those
who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things!"
This is from 1 Peter 1:10-12...1 Peter 1:11 is the part about "the time and circumstances..." (circumstances including me praying to God to use me
as a "conduit",of sorts! )
After that happened,I no longer see the "11:11" as I did in the past,and I sort of miss it!
However,it confirmed to me,personally,that I am not serving myself,but the one who sent me,to share the gospel and urge others to seek Him before it
is too late!
I've never been "fanatical" in any way,in fact,I'd been pretty reserved about my beliefs up until just a little over a year ago.
So,I guess when people discover what it means to them,they might be able to "shut off the alarm",so to speak?
Have others experienced coming to a realization of what it means to them in such a way? I'm curious.
