One of the numbers that prophetic people see quite often is 1111. Many interpretations have been presented by those who do numbers like Troy Brewer and they are fun to listen to and if they apply to the context of what God is speaking to you they can be very helpful to understand what God is saying. Eleven is a number that is usually associate with transition, and as I was reading Mark 11 today, verse 11 stuck out to me. I did not think of it as an 11:11 number, but that is exactly what it is. Here is what Mark 11:11 says, “Jesus entered Jerusalem and came into the temple; and after looking around at everything He left for Bethany with the twelve, since it was already late.” I highly doubt anyone knew what Jesus was thinking based on what He was seeing. But it is clear, He came into the Temple and looked around.
I sense the Lord, for the past two years, has been Mark 11:11 ing His people. Paul said, we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, but the church is also the Temple of God, so both individually and corporately, I sense Jesus has been doing some observations. The reason I say this is because I sense 2023 is going to be a year where things are going to change dramatically. What exactly is going to change, I cannot tell you that, for I am not privy to that information, but what I am sensing from the Lord is that there are about to be major changes based on the Lord’s past two years of observations of individuals, churches and nations.
Mark 11:15-17 tells us what Jesus did based on what He saw in verse 11, “When they arrived back in Jerusalem, Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out the people buying and selling animals for sacrifices. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves, and he stopped everyone from using the Temple as a marketplace. He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves.” Jesus brought the Temple back to its original design, to be a house of prayer for the nations. I sense we are about to be brought back to original design as people, churches and nations. The original design was very good, but it has gotten off track and I believe a much needed adjustment is coming and we are going to be so glad the Lord of the Temple loves us enough to adjust us.
