Today is July 11th. Why is this number significant? First, 711 is the PO Box number for Destiny Eastgate Ministries. To my recollection, this has been our PO Box for around 22 years.
To further note: many are seeing the number 7:11 on their clock, as well other sources such as license plates through dreams and visions. Some report numbers such as 7117, etc. This revelation seems to appear in various combinations but does begin with 7, which is the Sabbath day of rest.
Genesis 2:2-3, states, “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because that in it He had rested from all God created and made”
One of the reasons why I have taken July off is to enter more fully into the rest of the Lord. In doing so, I am being shown the areas where I tend to be anxious, doubtful, fearful and concerned. But the good news is when we cease from our own works, to rest in His love, HIs Lordship, His ability, power, and authority, we enter into a blessed state of rest. His rest is not just the absence of anxiety but fills our innermost being with the indwelling presence of the Lord’s peace.
You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you (Is. 26:3).
It is in this rest where our trust is placed in Him that we are “blessed and sanctified” by the finished and complete work of Christ. The work that Jesus did on the cross is complete; there is nothing more that we can do nor add to it. To attempt to do so is to believe that the finished work of Christ is not ample enough.
Now if God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, then in every area we find our rest in Him, we experience the blessing of His divine nature that sanctifies our innermost being with His Holy Spirit. What makes us Holy is not our righteousness but by being filled with the HOLY Spirit. The apostle Paul tells us,
“There remains, therefore, a rest to the people of God. For he that has entered into His rest, has also ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Let us, therefore, labor to enter into His rest lets any man fall after the same example of unbelief
Are you feeling “restless, anxious or fearful?” Romans 14:23 tells us “For whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” True faith finds its rest in God. When our faith is placed in our faith, we are trusting own-selves and ability, which is spiritual pride. True faith occurs when our focus is IN the Lord and His ability.
Perhaps the Lord is speaking loudly in a silent way with the number we are seeing stating, “It is time to cease from your own works and enter into My rest!”
What does the number 711 mean to you?
