The recent planned terrorist attack on the Libyan embassy on September 11th seem yet another evidence that the September 11th date in history is related to Biblical number patterns associating the numbers 9-1-1 with calamity to nations that turn from God. The Bible’s gematria number patterns help us understand how such associations can exist. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gematria
Following are two Bible verses that help reveal this possibility. As unimaginable as it sounds that such a biblical pattern exists, it's very difficult to dismiss the KJV's (NIV, NASB, ESV..) Bible's many examples of 911 to this theme as coincidence. The specific nature of this message in Biblical references to 9-1-1 are beyond any possibility of them all happening by chance.
Look closely and you will notice that 911 in the Bible is not just related to calamity, but is always related to calamity "to nations" or "peoples" turning from God. It is impossible to dismiss so many specific references as a product of chance.
Two examples of 911 associations in Bible verse numbering…The Diaspora... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_diaspora) Before their exile Israel was told why this calamity happened to them...
Dan 9:11 "Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him.Tower of Babel...(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_of_Babel) In Genesis chapter eleven, the people had turned to other God's and were building a tower to reach heaven and that was the last rebelling act of Babel before God called calamity down on them...
Gen 11:9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.It has been preached by many Bible believers that the USA is turning from God and is suffering the consequences today. This is not news to those who study God's Word, but scholars have never noticed that biblical references to God's wrath are actually associated with the digits 9, 1 and 1.

The Sobering Number 911If you're reading this you're probably well familiar with the term "911" as it relates to the September 11, 2001 attack on the”World” Trade Center towers in New York City. Since that infamous day, people have referred to this great calamity as simply "911". It seemed a natural label to put on this event since we also know of the number "911" being used as our common telephone number to call in emergency situations. Without any thought we would all assume that this "911" designation originated from the makers of art telephone systems, but, incredibly, the Bible shows us "911" is more likely a God defined number symbolic of the Lord's return to protect his people as well as the Lord's judgment on nations who have turned away from him. I know this sounds a far-fetched and ridiculous conclusion, but if you read on, I think the evidence found in the Bible's numbers speaks for itself.
The Tower of Babel and 911…
The Tower of Babel is about when men began to build a structure that would reach the heavens. When God saw this he decided to disperse this nation that had decided they would find a way to heaven without God - that is, their nation had turned away from God. He dispersed them by Confusing them with different languages and scattering them across the Earth. As we see in many "911" related verses, God brings calamity on nations who turn away from him.
What does the number 911 mean? Biblical Evidence 911 is a God Number Associated with Calamity or a curse to NationsThere are many different ways the Bible's numbering always point to a consistent symbolism of text associated with all the numbers. At first glance, some of these examples may appear to be contrived or coincidental comparisons of various Bible numbering to the text, But as we study more and more examples, the possibility of coincidence gets very difficult to imagine. Don't try to fit every one of these examples exactly to the 911 theme as you imagine it, but consider all the evidences together when you consider the possibility.
As you begin to take in the thought about what God might be doing with number symbolism, both in the Bible and in our world, it will change your image of the power of God. God does everything by pattern so those looking for evidence of God have no problem seeing proof of his existence....
