In 2001, Charlene Allen received this word-- a 911 call to the nation. She has carried this word for 12 years. I encourage you to judge the word (1 Cor. 14:29), then determine how you ought to respond. Tim Taylor, an apostle & presiding bishop of KLI.
God Bless America! America, you have seen or heard these words every day since September 11, 2001. It is on t-shirts, posters, and decals. It is included in email messages and state and national addresses. From coast to coast we see God Bless America.
I am a small voice with a powerful message that will be accepted by few and rejected by many. Before September 11, 2001, I did not get involved in political or religious debates. Like many Americans, I went to work, paid taxes, attended church, and tried to make a difference in my part of the world. I wanted to know the meaning of my life and be certain that I reached my fullest potential. On September 11th, God made a 911 call. I received the call and now I strive to reach Gods potential. God sent an emergency message. Did you hear the call? If not, I will tell you the message so you can receive or reject it...
When you say "God Bless America", what does it mean? God has already blessed the land called America. Look at the sunset over the eastern or western shores; look at the Rocky, Cascade, or Blue Mountains; look at the lush farmlands and pastures across America. Oh yes, America is blessed. There is ample food to eat, the soil is rich, and the lakes, streams, and rivers are pictures of beauty. This country is so blessed, other countries receive aid from the blessings Americans have taken for granted. God has blessed this land and other nations have benefited from those blessings for centuries.
So I say why shout, "God Bless America!" With each sunrise and sunset He answers the cry. I believe the cry is not for the land but for the people of the land. Americans want an individual blessing so that collectively, we all can be blessed. So, how can Americans receive its blessing? How can you receive your blessing?
On 911 President Bush called the nation to pray and for several weeks, the nation and the world prayed. The nation did not have a moment of silence, but a moment of prayer. The nation that had removed prayer from all parts of life began to pray.
On 911 President Bush quoted a portion of the Holy Bible and said, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil". This message, taken from Psalm 23 verse 4 (Psalm 23:4), was received by the nation. God is so awesome that He sent additional messages in the Psalms since that is the portion of the Bible that this government feels could be used.
God made the call; the rest is up to you. Will you hear the message? Will you accept the message?
The First Message: Trust in God The first message was sent to America in American Flight 11. This flight struck and destroyed the World Trade Center. This center represented the economic freedom that America has in abundance. Americans have placed its trust in that freedom and enjoyed the power this freedom bestows. The message in Psalm 11 is, place your trust in God for He will test you. Will America pass the test? Will you? Have you trusted Him and not America's economic freedom?
The Second Message: Who is Greater than God? The second message was sent to America in United Flight 77. This flight struck and damaged the Pentagon. This structure represents the military power that America welds around the world. The message in Psalm 77 is phrased as a question, "Who is so great a God as our God?" The Psalm also makes a statement, "When overwhelmed, remember God's greatness". The President remembered, he asked America to be united in prayer. So America prayed to God, not its military leaders.
The Third Message: Blessed are the Godly The third message was sent to America in American Flight 175. This flight struck and destroyed the second World Trade Center. The first message in Psalm 1, "Blessed are the Godly" can be compared to the first message in Psalm 75, which is "A warning to the ungodly". The second message in Psalms 1 and 75 respectively are "There are two ways of life that can be compared" and "God is the Judge". America, we shall be judged. How will you be judged? Will you be found godly or ungodly?
Why use Psalms 1 and 75? There are many number combinations in 175. How could I know those are the correct passages? In answer, of all the combinations, these are the only two Psalms that makes a statement and fits the consecutive number pattern. Psalm 15 makes a statement but the number pattern does not match because the numbers 1 and 5 are not together. The other combinations represented in the number 175 are prayers. The Psalms are as follows:
¨ Psalm 5 is a prayer for protection.
¨ Psalm 7 is a prayer for deliverance (7 is also represented in the second message for United Flight 77 that struck the Pentagon. Psalm 77 answered the question, "Who could deliver America?" Answer, God. Our president believed and asked America to pray to God).
¨ Psalm 15 tells what the Lord demands.
¨ Psalm 17 is a prayer for protection against our oppressor.
¨ Psalms 51 and 57 are prayers for deliverance.
¨ Psalm 71 is a prayer for help in old age.
Wait! Psalm 71 does not fit the message pattern so the theory on the correlation between the numbers and the flights must be wrong! This occurred to me also. After additional prayer and study, I found Psalm 71 represented the prayers of those Americans that did not forget how to pray nor did they forget to whom to pray. Those Americans made the difference because prayer for them was not a new phenomenon but a way of life. Americans have not always prayed and some have forgotten but thanks to those old age Americans who trusted the Lord. They knew where to find help.
The Final Message: Raise up The fourth and final message was sent to America in United Flight 93. This flight went down in a field after its passengers rose up and overcame the terrorist. The message of Psalm 93 tells of the majesty of God and how He rises up and overcomes. Unlike the third message, all four messages in the final message must be heard. These parting messages were given to America for comfort and hope. They were given to America so we could be united under God. These are His parting words:
¨ Psalm 3 is a prayer for confidence in God. We can have victory in the face of death if we trust Him.
¨ Psalm 9 gives praise for God's justice. We must give thanks to Him for all things.
¨ Psalm 39 is a prayer of self-understanding and realization that life is short. It gives hope to the hopeless. We must remember that America once trusted God and our shores represented hope for the hopeless. I imagine the passengers on United Flight 93 understood this prayer and gave their lives so other would live and have hope.
¨ Psalm 93 tells of the Majesty of God. This wraps all the messages together because He wants America to show Him reverence.
American United! United American! God sent a message to US. He wants to bless the people of America (and the world), not the land. He sent the message to US because He has blessed America and wants America to share those blessings with the world. Americans united can tell the world from whence their blessings come - God Blesses America!
Four targets were sent to America on 911. Four is a biblical symbol that represents the four-corners of the earth and God wants His message told to everyone - Trust Him.
Three of the four planes hit its target and one plane missed its target but all terrorized America. Three is a biblical symbol that represents the triune God, three persons in one God, The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. This is the same God that sent His Son to save America and the world.
The airline names say it all "American United, United American". America, the Lord is calling you to be united in trusting Him. America, always keep yourselves united in the Holy Spirit and bind yourselves together with peace (Ephesians 4:3).
If you believe this message in your heart, you can change the world because God will give you the Power through His Holy Spirit. God will give you peace if you trust the Lord Jesus Christ. Will you answer His 911 call?
Will you accept His Peace? Will you trust in His Power?
God Bless America!
