A study in blues and whites, the Freedom Tower also, known as the One World Trade Center can be seen gleaming from lower Manhattan. Piercing the sky at 1776 feet high, it is the third tallest building in the world. Eleven years ago, the sky line of Manhattan was permanently and tragically altered, but, today, the vow to rebuild better and stronger than before, became a reality.
It is perhaps fitting that the tower reached completion today, May 10, 2013. As it is also, Sivan 1 on the Hebrew calendar. Sivan, the month, whose name means season or time. For as it says in the book of Ecclesiastes, there is a time and a season for everything. And, today was destined to be that day; wind and weather cooperating for the difficult task of attaching the communication spire or antenna to the top of the building, where, a few days earlier, it had to be postponed.
The morning headlines were exuberant over the completion of the tower. The first one I read this morning, said:
“Behold: New York’s glorious new skyline, 4259 days in the making”.
Interesting, the use of the word ”behold.” Has a kind of biblical sound about it, doesn’t it? And, the 4,259 days? A biblical ring as well, I think. Not sure what the number of days in its totality means, but, I do know that it has been 11 plus years. Eleven, the biblical number of disorder, disintegration and destruction. Just like the side, by side towers, the number 11. On September 11. And, the number ten as in May 10, the biblical number of completion. Which indicates to me that the eleven year period, which began with the fall of the towers has now reached its completion.
What God has separated, let no man join.
“So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel — because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:8-9.
Yes, God separated them. It was not his intention that they (the nations) be unified or joined together. Unlike his bride, who from the many are made one in the body of Messiah. An obvious attempt by the enemy to act in complete reversal from what God has said. Joining what ought not to be joined and seperating that which God has joined.
That being said, its interesting that the One World Trade Tower reached its completion within about a week of Pentecost or Shavuot, which, is the anniversary of what God has joined together; his body. And, could be an indication that the time of our departure, our separation from this world is near.
Keep your eyes on the prize, Jesus is coming soon! And, as always -
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper, who love thee” Psalm 122:6
Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus! Cindy
