9/11: Joel

Joel 3.19

This verse is part of a prophecy about the Day of the Lord and it tells of the fate of Egypt and Edom. The fact that two entities are judged immediately alerted me to the possibility that it might be another oblique reference to 9/11.

19. But Egypt will be desolate, Edom a desert waste, because of violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they shed innocent blood.

Joel 3.19 (o) = 1199 = 11 x 109

There is a real confluence of eleven multiples here, because the chapter and verse numbers imply 319, which is 11 x 29, and Joel 3.19 is the NIV Bible's 22363rd verse, which is 11 x 2033 (it is Joel's 71st verse). So metaphor, gematria and numerics all testify that this verse, like so many others within God's Word, is a prophecy of 9/11.
