7-11-11, the perfect storm

“… And there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow resembling an emerald encircled the throne… From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder.”   Revelation 4:2-5

Lightning and thunder. There is nothing quite like it. Nature at its most powerful, a fitting description for the awesome power and majesty of God.  Interesting, that lightning has made the news twice times this week in connection with two highly publicized news stories both occurring four days in advance of what I have dubbed, 7-11-11;  the perfect storm.

What is a perfect storm? A perfect storm is a rare set of conditions that come together to create a worst-case scenario of weather conditions.  This happened in 1991, when weather conditions in the northeast came together to create a powerful storm known as a Nor’easter.  Some of you may remember this storm which occurred on Halloween of that same year and the 1997 book and subsequent movie, which recounted the storm and its effect on one particular fishing vessel and its crew, the Andrea Gail.  I remember reading the book shortly after moving to Hawaii in 1999 and being riveted to it’s every page. The storm and its effect, both terrifying and unforgettable in magnitude and strength.  

* And, wow, I didn’t realize this until now, when I did a quick google search of the date October 30, 1991 and found out that it is also the date of the first ever mid-East peace conference hosted by George Bush Sr.  Can you believe it!  I tell you, you just can’t make this stuff up!

This past week, on July 7, two sets of lightning struck within 1/3 of a mile of the launch pad of the space shuttle Atlantis, the day before its scheduled final launch. And, on the same day, a tall tree at the memorial site where little Caylee Anthony’s remains were found was also struck by lightning just hours after the not-guilty verdict was rendered absolving her mother Casey of any guilt in her disappearance and death.  A coincidence? Maybe …. may be not.

The internet is abuzz with these stories, particularly the Anthony case. And, while sadly many children are killed or go missing each year, (not to mention the millions of abortions), this case for some reason captured the attention of the nation.  I really don’t know why, except to say it is perhaps, not just Casey who was on trial here, but, America herself. And, like the jury, we find ourselves, “not-guilty” – innocent of all charges that might be held against us and the lifestyles we lead.

The public is outraged about the verdict, and rightfully so, but, the outrage, while commendable is also – hypocritical. For the lifestyle Casey led resulting in the death of her sweet baby is also the lifestyle millions of Americans lead resulting in broken families, child abuse, neglect, abortions and much, much more.  And, we have all been touched by these things, my life and my family no exception, so you see, the finger-pointing at Casey, also, points squarely back at us. I believe, when lighting struck the tree next to the memorial for little Caylee, God weighed in, not just on Casey, but, on all of us as well. Shame on nation, who will not protect its young! Even animals know better than this!

On Monday, 7/11/11, the mid-East quartet will meet in Washington to determine the fate of Israel (as if it is in their hands).  Eleven is the number of disorganization, imperfection and disintegration. Interesting, when you add the three number together separately, you also, get 11 – (7 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 11).  That makes three eleven’s associated with this date.

I’m not sure what next week will bring. But, I do know this, conditions are just right for the perfect storm. May we be found in his mercy and his grace.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee”  Psalm 122:6     Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy


  1. I was thinking about 11:11 today when the Lord brought this chapter to me:

    Jeremiah 11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.

    Jeremiah 11:16 The LORD CALLED THY NAME, A GREEN OLIVE TREE, fair, [and] of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.

    This whole chapter mirrors the Song of Moses – the law that was placed in the side of the Ark of the Covenant.

  2. This probably means nothing but just noticed that the first scripture you presented, Rev 4+2+5 = 11. I also noticed that Psalm 1+2+2+6=11 too, so I that is why it probably doesn’t mean anything, just a careful observation.

    [Very interesting! Not sure what it means either, but, I sure appreciate your keen observation. Thanks for sharing it with us! C]

    • Wow Tamra…you are right !! That too is astonishing !! Could this be a type of conformation? Cindy, I think the Holy Spirit is really speaking out in this post to us as well as yourself …. Amen? Got you in my prayers Cindy that the Holy Spirit will continue to make Himself known through your insights!!

      [Thank you Beverly, I really appreciate your encouragement and your prayers! C]

  3. Since we are talking numbers get this…the 1st space shuttle was launched April 12, 1981 and the last one up is exactly 30yrs 3 months later, 30+3 = 33!! There’s that number 33 !! Wild huh?

    [And, I think I read, it is also the 33rd mission for the Atlantis, very interesting indeed! C]

    • I have seen some posts about dreams concerning the Atlantis space walk Tuesday.

      STS-135 is the 135th and final shuttle mission and the 33rd flight of Atlantis.

      The mission patch is Omega, the last letter in the Greek alphabet,


       FD 1 July 8th: STS-135 is targeted to launch at 11:26 a.m. EDT on July 8 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

       FD 5 July 12th: Expedition 28 astronauts Michael Fossum and Ron Garan will perform a spacewalk to transfer a failed ammonia pump to the shuttle cargo bay, transfer the RRM to the station and place an experiment on ELC-2 for long-duration exposure.

       FD 13: STS-135 is targeted to land at 7:06 a.m. on July 20 at Kennedy.

      • Quote: FD 13: STS-135 is targeted to land at 7:06 a.m. on July 20 at Kennedy.

        July (7) 20 (2) ’11 (2) = (7+2+2) = 11 for “1111” – meanings of 1111 in Hebrew Gematria = 1111 + Iota + The WITNESS + The Foundations + King of Israel + The Flood

        (Two witnesses – 2 lampstands [which I believe Rev 1 states are 2 of the 7 churches listed in Rev] AND 2 OLIVE TREES)

        Jeremiah 11:16 The LORD CALLED THY NAME, A GREEN OLIVE TREE, (Jeremiah is addressing Judah and Jerusalem in this section of scripture)

    • Wow interesting…

      INCOMING CME: A coronal mass ejection (CME) that billowed away from sunspot 1247 on July 9th could hit Earth’s magnetic field on July 12th. Because the CME was not squarely Earth-directed and is not traveling at great speed, only minor geomagnetic storming is expected when the cloud arrives.


  4. Hi Cindy, excellent and insightful,

    I only wish it wasn’t true that America as a nation has rebelliously turned away from God and has blasphemed all of His covenants, and hasn’t even the common grace for a fearful expectation of wrath.

    I think I would like to tread some old ground about the “the three weeks”

    The weeks ahead are “between the straights”…



    The Quartet summit is set to take place in Washington, on 11 July. This is only four days before the date set by the Palestinians to issue their appeal to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for full membership for Palestine at the UN. This appeal must be made by 15 July in order to give enough time to propose the subject for a vote at the General Assembly in September.

    The three weeks from Tammuz 17 to the Av 9 is also called – “between the straights” (based on Lam. 1:3), a period of time during which many calamities befell the Jewish people.

    Tuesday 19 July is the 17th of Tammuz

    The fast of the 17th of Tammuz (Shivah Asar B’Tammuz) occurs in June/July and marks the beginning of the “Three Weeks of Sorrow,” a 21 day period of national mourning which is completed on Tishah B’Av. The purpose of this fast is to instill a sense of teshuvah (repentance) by recalling specific tragedies that befell the Jewish people on this date.

    The tablets upon which the Ten Commandments were written were broken on this day when Moses came down from Sinai and found the Jews worshipping the golden calf.

    Our language is so polluted, as you know July is named after Julius Caesar, a man who was about to proclaim himself god then was murdered by his threatened Senate. The common Jewish name for the fourth month is Tammuz which is of Babylonian origin another man who proclaimed himself god. And the “Fast of Tammuz” had a pagan tradition of weeping for the death of this Babylonian god.

    Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? Ezekiel 8:14

    We also know in the Millennial Kingdom this specific day of fasting will be turned in to a feast.

    And the word of the LORD of hosts came unto me, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace. Zechariah 8:18-19

    [Thanks Michael, I can always count on you for thoughtful commentary! Between the straights is right, the next three weeks (if not week), is sure to be pivotal. Thanks for laying it out so succinctly for us! Blessings! C]

  5. Cindy, I so much appreciate your posts. The insight our Lord is giving you regarding these things is very evident. I’m also learning a lot from all the rest of you who’ve posted comments. I’m continuing to pray for all of our unsaved loved ones and am fully trusting that by the grace of God we will ALL finish well. God bless and protect each one of you!

    [Thanks Coreen, I learn alot from all of you too! I always look forward to the comments and the information that all of you have to share with me and the other readers. As believers, we function as a body, even when it comes to blogs! Blessings dear sister and thank you for your paryers and encouragement! C]

  6. Hey sister Coreen…I still have you on my prayer list too…thanks!
    Ya’ll gotta check this out,,,ready? The space shuttle is scheduled to return at 7:06am…….which could also be read as 6hrs & 66mins = 6 6 6 !!!
    We gotta keep our eyes open on this mission, they are certainly “endeavoring” to do something evil…

    ps here is my email address if ya’ll ever need anything or have something to share..I know I sometimes just need another christian friend to lean on that dosen’t judge me as a “rapture crazie” or Beverly Baggett Stegall on Facebook

    • I received an E-Mail today from a friend where “all hell” is occurring in her life. All hell is occurring in my life right now as well. There is obviously a spiritual war going on right now that is manifesting in both heaven and on earth! Is anyone else experiencing this right now or is it just the two of us?

      Beverly – 7:06 = 666!!!

  7. Hmmm

    11-July-2011 AP News

    NASA is monitoring a piece of space junk that might come dangerously close to the shuttle. The object will make its closest approach tomorrow – right in the middle of a planned spacewalk
