    It is my opinion the destruction of the World Trade Center towers, commonly known today as 911, is prophesied of in the 33rd chapter of Isaiah. The prophecy appears to be meant for our generation, which I believe to be the final generation of mankind. I say this because our LORD begins the main thrust of the prophecy by telling us, through that great prophet Isaiah, that we shall see Jesus Christ, in His beauty, returning to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

    Thine eyes shall see the king in His beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. Isaiah 33.17

    Seen from Jerusalem, the land that is very far off is New York, New York, USA. In the 911 prophecy, the LORD speaks to two generations and two geographical locations using the same Scriptures. The two generations are: the generation in the Bible who was being besieged by the King of Babylon around 600 B.C. and our generation, today. The two geographical locations are Judah, which is Israel today, and New York City. The prophecy begins by telling us the fate of the people involved, then, and now.

    And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire. Isaiah 33.12

    For those who may not know, Jerusalem was besieged by the King of Babylon about 2,600 years ago and many of the buildings were burned to the ground, including much of Solomon’s Temple. This ushered in a societal change for the children of ancient Israel as many were destroyed or taken captive spending the rest of their days in Babylon. As everyone knows, 911 has caused societal changes for us also, evidenced by agencies like the Department of Homeland Security.

    The LORD then continues the prophecy by telling us of the two time frames involved: we have them who are far off and those who are near. The far off generation is, of course, us, and the near generation were the inhabitants of Jerusalem when Isaiah was writing.

    Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and ye that are near, acknowledge My might. Isaiah 33.13

    Do you think this faithless and perverse generation is ready to acknowledge the might of ALMIGHTY GOD? I don’t think so either, but let me give you the heart of the 911 tragedy, and some might raise their eyebrows. I have taken the liberty of putting some things in parenthesis ( ) just for explanation sake, and some things in brackets [ ], which will give you the original Hebrew meaning in which this was written. Here is the heart of the 911 prophecy:

    Thine eyes shall see the king (Jesus Christ) in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off (America). Thine heart shall meditate [ponder upon] terror. Where is the scribe [the counter]? Where is the receiver [the weigher]? Where is he that counted [to recount, i.e., celebrate] the towers? Isaiah 33.17

    Notice the plural in towers, for they were the “twin towers.” And the question is posed, “Where is he that celebrated the victory in bringing down the towers?” There was a massive worldwide manhunt, and it still took us over a decade to find Bin Laden. And what is all this about the scribe and the receiver? These are the “counter” and the “weigher” in the Hebrew manuscripts.

    The Lord is telling us that those who were buying and selling, engaged in commerce, are gone! We need to remember, the destruction came to the WORLD TRADE CENTER. Those buildings represented worldwide TRADE and every citizen in America and around the world, realizes we have been meditating upon terror ever since 9-11-2001.

    The skeptics, the atheists, will say, "Come on, those Scriptures are just coincidental!" Are they? Our Heavenly Father, knowing the end from the beginning, won't talk to this generation? I believe He is giving this generation a serious, "Heads up!" The facts are, those towers came down during our generation, the generation that will see Y'shua Messiah, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior return: in His beauty.

    Scripture teaches that human generations are perpetual.
    (Ps 145:13; Dan 4:3,34; Dan 7:14,18,27; Lk 1:33)

    and if not perpetual:
    Deuteronomy 7:9
    Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,

    Psalm 105:8
    He remembers his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,

    If we take a generation to mean 70 years, and a generation is people being born, growing up, giving birth, growing old and dying, then we are on solid scriptural footing to believe and profess that God has ordained 70,000 years of keeping his covenant to generations of Humans on earth who are being born, growing up, giving birth, growing old any dying..

    So....If we are presently 6000 years in, then we've got another 64,000 years to go.

    Of course, you'd have to believe that things like 1000 years, and 1000 generations are LITERAL for this to work.

    You don't think that Babylon could be considered the land that is far off?

    You Americans obsess on 911. That disaster was just another part of Jesus' prophecy; You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but the end is not yet.
    Isaiah 33 is a great chapter that tells us about our future:
    Isaiah 33:1-6 Woe betide you destroyer, yourself destroyed. After all your betrayals, you too will be betrayed. Isaiah 21:2

    Lord, show us Your favour, our hope is in You. Save us when trouble comes. Psalms 74:19, Isaiah 26:16-21

    At the crack of thunder, peoples flee – nations are scattered at Your roar. They are stripped of spoil, as by a swarm of locusts. Isaiah 10:17-19, Isa. 18:18-19

    The Lord is supreme, for He dwells on high. He will fill Zion with justice and righteousness. Your peoples strength is in Your unchanging stability, their deliverance is in wisdom and knowledge, their treasure is the respect of the Lord.


    Isaiah 33:7=9 Listen, brave men cry aloud for help. Those seeking peace are thwarted.
    The roads are deserted, no one moves, treaties are flouted. Ezekiel 36:3-4, Psalms 144:7-8
    The land is dry. Lebanon, Sharon, Bashan and Gilead are stripped bare. Ezekiel 36:34, Joel 1:19-20, Amos 1

    Isaiah 33:10-16 Now, I shall arise and exalt Myself, says the Lord. Revelation 6:12-17, Psalms 74:22-23 You will conceive chaff and bring forth stubble, a wind like fire will devour you. Whole nations will be as heaps of white ash, like thorns set ablaze. Matthew 3:12, Hebrews 10:27, 2 Peter 3:7

    You who are far away, hear what I have done. You who are near, acknowledge My power. Deuteronomy 30:1-10

    The sinners in Zion are terrified, the godless are seized with trembling. They ask; How can we live with this consuming fire? Zephaniah 1:4-6, & 14-18, Isaiah 22:1-14

    Those who live righteously and speak the truth, who do not take bribes, rejecting all evil – they will dwell securely with ample food and water. Psalms 85:12


    Isaiah 33:17-24 Your eyes will see a King in his glory and view a Land that stretches into the distance. Numbers 24:15-19

    You will call to mind what you once feared. Where are they now? Those barbarous people whose speech you could not understand. Psalms 58:10-11, Psalms 37:8-15

    Look upon Zion, Jerusalem, city of sacred festivals. A secure abode, never again to be moved. Amos 9:13-15

    There the Lord will be in His majesty, a peaceful place. A place of broad rivers, but no ships will sail there.

    The Lord is our judge and lawgiver. He is our King who will save us. Zechariah 8:7-8

    Your rigging hangs loose, the mast is not secure and your sails are not set. Luke 12:35-36. Then all will take a share in the spoils. Zechariah 9:17

    No one living in Zion will get sick and the sins of the people will be pardoned. Psalms 126:1-3 Ref: REB some verses abridged

    Verse 5 says ‘the Lord dwells on high’. So, before His Return, we see in verses 3-4 & 10-11, the nations as at present and in V14 Judah’s judgement. V15-16 say His faithful people will live prosperously in the Land, then V17-24 speaks of the Return of Jesus and His reign during the Millennium.

    It sure don't take long for a thread like this to devolve into the realm of conspiracy theories.

    :D I'm not American.

    Nevertheless, it's not about the war that followed, it's about the lies that started it all. I hate lies (especially the ones that influence global politics), and I hate that much of the world has been duped and so whenever possible I try to set the record straight. American or not. This is a global problem.

    Please don't lump all Americans into this. In fact, the majority of us recognize it for what it was....a horrible act of terrorism perpetrated by those who hate and despise us.

    Of course.....but it was an overt act, not a covert act. Look up the term "conspiracy theory".

    Yes, buddy, i know what a conspiracy theory actually is, and i know what you think it is.
    You think it's synonymous with "bogus", whereas i know that there are many conspiracy theories that are based on facts or at least on evidence.

    The term "conspiracy theory" was weaponized during the Warren Commision investigation into the JFK assassination.
    They weaponized the term to be used as a way to ridicule and dismiss anything that is not in line with the 'official' narrative.
    It is still used as such today.

    As for overt vs. covert, yes, obviously the 9/11 disaster was out in the open.
    However what was going on behind the scenes is still hidden, and can only be attempted to reconstruct with circumstantial evidence.
    But there are many things that raise serious questions and serious doubts about the official story.
