9/11: Revelation

The Book of Revelation, the last and most controversial of the bible's 66 books, contains a series of unforgetable prophesies that recount, in vivid detail, events that will mark the end of our age. Since it was written, controversy has raged over just how literally these prophesies are to be taken and exactly when the prophesied events were supposed to occur, if at all. I hope that this page may shed some light on the subject.

Revelation has 22 chapters, 404 verses and is the Bible's 66th book. Also, the word 'Revelation' has an ordinal value of 121, or 11 x 11 (this is also the ov of 'Second Coming'). So we see that this book is almost watermarked with that number, promising much more to come - which isn't surprising given the huge proportion of the book given over to end-time prophecy.


Revelation 1:1

The first twelve words of Revelation are encoded in the same manner as the first twelve words of the Bible's first four books and elsewhere. 

1 The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his . . .

1st 12 words Rev. 1:1 (o) = 604
The Second Coming (o) = 604


Revelation 9:11

This verse, which tells of the 'angel of the abyss', is the 154th verse of Revelation. This is a multiple of 11 and ov of 'the Second coming'.
Revelation 11:7 (NIV)

Revelation 11 concerns the two witnesses. These sound suspiciously like the twin towers, especially since the chapter is Revelation’s 11th. Later in the chapter, the two witnesses are destroyed.

7. Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.

Rev 11:7 (o) = 1265 = 11 x 115

It may also be relevant that, although September is the ninth month, the prefix 'sept' denotes the number seven.


Revelation 11.12

This verse is the 187th in Revelation, which is 11 x 17. It describes how the two witnesses are taken up to heaven in a cloud, which again resonates with 9/11.

12. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here" And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

Rev. 11.12 (o) = 1243 = 11 x 113

As with many other encodings we see here a confluence of independently derived multiples of eleven, coming together to bring great meaning to this passage.


Revelation 11:19 (NIV)

This famous verse describes the revealing of the ark of the covenant.

19. Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm.

Rev 11:19 (o) = 1727 = 11 x 157


 Revelation 12:1 (NIV)

The number implied by the chapter and verse is 121, the square of 11. This verse describes a celestially-clad woman, whom we are later told gave birth to the male child.

1. A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.

Rev 12:1 (o) = 1309 = 11 x 119


Revelation 12:9 (NIV)

In a passage describing the war in heaven between the angels of light and those of darkness, this dramatic verse describes how satan and his angels were hurled to the earth.

9. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Rev 12:9 (o) = 1518 = 11 x 138


Revelation 13:13 (NIV)

In verse 11 of Revelation 13, we hear of the beast with two horns like a lamb (ie blunt), but which spoke like a dragon, an obvious reference to the twin towers. Verse 13 tells us of the ability of the second beast to cause fire to come down from heaven to earth, which could also be loosely interpreted as a prophesy of the destruction of the twin towers, an interpretation again supported by gematria:

13. And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men.

Rev 13:13 (o) = 1067 = 11 x 97


 Revelation 14:16 (NIV)

The second half of Revelation 14 tells of the harvest of the earth to come. Verse 16 itself is the climax of this section and yet another prophecy of 9/11.

16. So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.

Rev 14:16 (o) = 880 = 11 x 80

A numerical value associated with Jesus Christ is found within the first nine words of the verse, 9 being the biblical number of judgment, endings and finality.

16. So he who was seated on the cloud swung . . .

1st 9 wds Rev 14:16 (o) = 391


Revelation 16:13 (NIV)

This verse tells us of evil spirits that come out of the mouths of the beast, the dragon and the false prophet.

13. Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Rev. 16.13 (o) = 1595 = 11 x 145
The Second coming of jesus Christ (s) = 1595  


Revelation 18:2-3 (NIV)

In verses 2 and 3, the mighty angel foretells the destruction of Babylon.

2. With a mighty voice he shouted:

"Fallen, fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demons and a home for every evil spirit,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
3. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries."

Rev. 18:2-3 (o) = 3355 = 11 x 305

305 is the ordinal value of 'Jesus Christ + The Second Coming'.


Revelation 18:10 (NIV)

Chapter 18, verse 10 (once again encoding 181) echoes the words in verses 1 to 3, and predicts how swiftly the end will come upon Babylon, as the kings of the earth look on. The words of the terrified onlookers watching the destruction of Babylon must have been echoed on 9/11 itself, as the world watched the towers fall.

10. ... "Woe! woe, O great city,O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come!"

Lament in Rev. 18.10 (o) = 759 = 11 x 69
In one hour (o) = 119  

It took about one hour for the twin towers, the prophesied Babylon, to fall after being struck.

Revelation 19:11 (NIV)

Verse 11 concerns the rider on the white horse, who is called Faithful and True.

11. I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.

Rev. 19:11 (o) = 1254 = 11 x 114


 Revelation 19:20 (NIV)

Revelation 19:20 describes the fate of the beast and the false prophet.

20. But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulphur.

Rev 19:20 (o) = 2651 = 11 x 241


Revelation 20:9 (NIV)

This verse tells us the fate of satan and his followers.

9. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.

Rev. 20:9 (o) = 1342 = 11 x 122

Revelation 22:20 (NIV)

This is the Bible’s penultimate verse, where Jesus assures us he is coming soon.

20. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen, come Lord Jesus.

Rev. 22:20 (o) = 792 = 11 x 72
