How many of you are constantly drawn to look at the clock at 11:11? I truly believe that God is alerting this generation that we are the 11th hour harvesters.

We are currently in the month of Shevat, the 11th month on the Hebrew calendar. Wednesday, January 16 at sundown will be the 11th day of the 11th month. I felt it very strongly to share this with you at this time.

Matthew 20:6, “And about the eleventh hour (5pm) he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day?’ (7) “They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive. (8) So when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, ‘Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.’ (9) “And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour, they each received a denarius. (10) “But when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received each a denarius. (11) “And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner, (12) “saying, ‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.’ (13) “But he answered one of them and said, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? (14) ‘Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. (15) ‘Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’ (16) “So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”

I was in prayer one day and Father showed me that ‘chosen’ actually meant paid the price to be qualified, not pew-sitters, not game players, but like a Navy Seal qualification to finish and become the best of the best in the US Navy. Each of us have got a part, each of us has an assignment. But the issue right now is “how are you going to finish?” Tick, tock- time is running out.

On the Jewish day, the night begins at sundown, let’s say 6pm. So the night goes from 6:00pm to 6:00am. This comes from God and Creation in Genesis 1, every date started at sundown. So the work day is 6am to 6pm. Therefore, the 11th hour of the work day is the 11th hour, the last hour to work and I do not want Jesus to say “Why have you been standing here idle all day?”

Eleven is a number of preparing to change over or transition , when you are preparing for the evening, ending all the work that needs to be done.

  • Deuteronomy 11:11, getting ready for a new place, crossing over into your promise
  • Luke 11:11, Jesus transitions the Jews in how they think about God, no longer slaves, but calling God Father
  • John 11:11, Lazarus our friend is falling asleep – transitioned between from earth to heaven
  • Proverbs 11:11, by the blessing of the upright, the city is exalted. Teaching them how to transition a city for God by putting righteous leaders in authority
  • Hebrews 11:11, Sarah received her promise and was taken out of the cycle of shame and unrelenting disappointments month after month with no baby. She has now been transitioned into receiving the promise of a son, Isaac.
  • What has God promised you and you have not seen. The work day is not over, there is still time so don’t give up on your promise.

Since the work day is ending, new assignments will be given out. I am seeing so many people in ministry all of a sudden being shifted to a new assignment, to a new territory.

Cindy Jacobs of Generals International said that 11 is like a birth canal, the baby is going from the comfort of the womb to the stress and discomfort of being born into a new, large life.

National Geographic: On the morning of 11:11, just before 9:30 UT, a mysterious rumble rolled around the world. The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and northern tip of Madagascar. The waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya and Ethiopia. They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away…..lasting 20 minutes…… not heard by humans, but picked up on seismograph earthquake readings. Seismologist at Columbia University said, “I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it.”

Pastor John Kilpatrick  of Church of His Presence in Daphne, AL received a word for our children that God was going to be a “wall of fire” around them, received at 1:11am on 11.11.18.

Lance Walnau from Facebook tells of someone sent him at 1:11am, ” I see the 11:11 over you, not only has you have interpreted in your post, but I also see an 11th hour ministry call unfolding in your life. An urgency to move – but you will be given the wisdom, knowledge, ability and relationships to accomplish this new 11th hour move.”
