9/11: 1 Samuel

1 Samuel 17 (NIV)

This chapter contains the well-known story of David the shepherd boy, defeating Goliath, the champion of the Philistines by a single sling-shot to the head. There is a compelling parallel with 9/11 here: Goliath, the personification of brute strength, is the United States of America, the most powerful military and economic force on earth in 2001. Goliath’s defeat at the hands of a little shepherd boy, with a well-aimed slingshot, mirrored the penetration of the USA’s defenses and subsequent destruction of the twin towers and the Pentagon by nothing more than three hijacked airplanes.

1. Chapter 17 is the Bible’s 253rd, this being a multiple of 11.

253 = 11 x 23

2. The verse describing the felling of Goliath by David is 1 Samuel 17:49.

1 Sam. 17:49

Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell face down on the ground.

Reading the chapter and verse indicators as a single number, 1749, gives us another mutliple of 11.

1749 = 11 x 159

So the story of David and Goliath is revealed to be yet another ‘hidden prophecy’ of 9/11, marked, as surely as Goliath’s forehead, with the key number 11.
