11:11 STICHOMANCY DIVINATION
"And The Anti-Christ Spirit Of Deception"
By Synthia Esther
Updated: September 10, 2015
King James Version Scriptural Reference:
Deutoronomy 18:10-13, "There shall not be found among you anyone that maketh his son or daughter pass through fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For All that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD; and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD they God."
The mystical anti-christ cosmology within certain Christian churches reeks of divination among many self-proclaimed prophets. The demonic - esoteric spirit of 11:11 deception is not only seen within the hearts and minds of New Age - Lightworker converts, but among many who call themselves "Christian" converts as well. One such faith based touting website dedicated an entire article to looking up every bible verse having to do with an 11:11 reference. The author concluded the 11:11 phenomenon was a watch sign of sorts concerning "Israel", even mentioning the 2012 book by Jonathan Chan, "The Harbinger", in support of isolated scriptures, supporting extra-biblical, 11:11 conclusions. Two additional noted examples misleading God's flock into esoteric *stichomancy and/or bibliomancy divination practice are Rick Joyner and James Ryle.
* STICHOMANCY DIVINATION DEFINED:
The Dictionary of the Esoteric, Watkins Publishing, Nevill Drury, Page 294:
"Divination by interpreting a passage picked at random in a book - often a sacred text. It is more commonly know as bibliomancy."
DIVINATION - A PRACTICE GOD STRICTLY FORBIDS! - DEUTERONOMY 18:11-14, 20, JEREMIAH 27:9
"Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord, and because of these detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the Lord your God," - Deuteronomy 18:10-12
GOD'S BIBLICAL WARNING:
Those who preach false doctrine:
"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve," - 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.
RICK JOYNER IS A STICHOMANCY - BIBLOMANCY DIVINATION PRACTITIONER - AN OBSERVER OF TIMES...
Rick Joyner's "Morning Star Website" (1-10-2010), under Q & A questions one can read:
Q. If every time you looked at the clock it said the same time, would you think the Lord was trying to tell you something?
Rick Joyner answered, "Yes, I do believe that the Lord can speak to us in this way, even though it does not mean necessarily that He is. Often I have found that such a time relates to a Scripture. In your case it might be Proverbs 11:24, that reads, 'There is one who scatters, yet increases all the more, and there is one who withholds what is justly due, but it results only in want.'"

JAMES RYLE - 11:11 STICHOMANCY - A FOOTBALL OMEN OF DECEPTION
Yes, you read it right! Football, 11:11 Stichomancy divination. James Ryle is (or was in the past) a director of the Promise Keepers movement and author of the book "Hippo in the Garden," Creation House publishers, pages 179-184, in which he states he was guided by a dream he received on August 22, 1989. Ryle dreamed of an "energy field" or something like it, encircling the University of Colorado Buffalo's football team. I thought in utter amazement upon reading Ryle's bizarre, visionary conclusions and witness account, "Did this 'energy field' hover over the Buffalo cheerleaders in their sexy uniforms as well?'".
James Ryle heard a voice that said, "This will be their golden season!"
Ryle then tells Bill McCartney (Colorado's coach), who later founded the National Christian men's group Promise Keepers, "The Lord will now fulfill promises which He has made to you by empowering the players with His Spirit." As the story goes, at the end of the season before the championship game, Ryle states,"I felt certain that we would win and be crowned the national champions of college football...we were firmly locked in the number one position in the polls ..."
RALPHIE THE BUFFALO ISSUED AN OMEN
According to James Ryle, God supposedly gave him another inspired Holy Spirit revelation right before the game, by way of a female buffalo named Ralphie. It was an omen relating to Ralphie's broken horn. As such, Ryle claimed God's Spirit had departed from the team, and they lost to Notre Dame - 21 to 6, with a quoted biblomancy citing Isaiah 21:6. I guess that meant Our Holy Heavenly Father's Spirit departed the cheerleaders cheers as well.
What's up with me and the cheerleaders?
You can't view football games without seeing the cheerleaders dance and strut their body stuff , now can you?
The spirit of football includes the spirit of sexy, butt flashing, panty liner, lust viewing intrigue. And how many men watch the football games and notice the cheerleaders? Need you ask? So, James Ryle is telling us that God's Spirit is interested in all of this sex, competition, carnal stuff?
Come on people....don't be so foolish. And don't claim the God I serve would be interested in such fleshly - carnal desires. Yes, winning a football game is of the flesh. And there is a whole lot of flesh to be seen at the football game! God came into the world to save the world, not to win a football game. I have nothing against football. What I don't like is the insinuation that our heavenly Father would be interested in having His Holy Spirit put a stamp of approval by way of providing divination signs and wonders, on such nonsense as winning a football game, and watching sexy cheerleaders strut their stuff urging them on! If indeed such a prophecy were to have been given by God, the fact it did not happen as conveyed, also means it was false. For God would have ordained the prophecy to be 100 percent correct if indeed it was from Him, for He cannot, will not lie - (Deut. 18:20-22).
If there is a coach, football player, who is a Christian and prays for God's protection and covering during a football game, I am sure God might honor their prayer, as many athletes attest to. But to place God's Holy Spirit over, and encircling or covering by way of an "energy field", an entire University football team in order to win. Giving out "omens and divination to do so", is a completely different story. It is an occult gnostic, mystic seer story that is totally contrary to God's word, in that it yields attention and credence to other worldly signs and wonders. Any thing that distorts God and His word, is not of God. Such divination leanings are very misleading, providing a keen sign to be on the alert! For it is by our own freewill that Satan is provided access to our mind in order to deceive us - (Jere. 17:9).
Yet James Ryle states, God will often use "what already has our attention to reach us" (page 183), then states "this applies to everywhere except the beach!" (page 184). No mention of the sex appeal of the cheerleaders? When we look to the world to provide signs and wonders, Satan willingly supplies our hearts desire (John 10:10). God has warned, we are not to look to the world for signs and wonders (Mark 13:22; 2 Thess. 2:9; Mat. 24:24; Rev. 16:14). True Children of the King of kings, follow His word, not metaphysical signs and wonders.
The Holy Spirit reaches us by way of inner convictions, causing spiritual longings to do what is right in God's sight. "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. - John 15:10. For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified - Romans 2:13.
AFTER THE LOSS, GOD TELLS RYLE TO READ ISAIAH 11:11
After the game loss, Ryle states God had him read the passage in Isaiah 11:11, which proclaims, "In that day the Lord will reach out His hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea."
Ryle felt confirmed by this scripture that God would likewise reach out His hand a second time towards the Colorado football team. Ryle checked Ralphie's horns to see if they were intact... for an omen, and they were. Colorado won the national football championship confirming Ryle's occult thoughts of omen divination by the season win-loss-tie record 11-1-1. This being yet another example of the "1111 Satanic signature sign", whereby Satan lured one with bait by way of scripture biblomancy/stichomany divination. And I am not the only one who has noticed James Ryle's obsession with such coincidences involving biblomancy - stichomany divination (reference my quoted excerpt by Ward Harkavy's published commentary below). We are instructed by God to always "test the spirit" of all prophecy (1 John 4:1).
www.westword.com/ "Preach for the Stars", by Ward Harkavy , Thursday, October 30, 1997, (retrieved - www.westword.com/news/preach-for-the-stars-5057970 - on July 30, 2015):
Harkavy writes concerning James Ryle, "He says he often hears God's voice and to hear him tell it, he experiences prophetic dreams about as often as he brushes his teeth. He believes in coincidences and has a thing about numbers. There are always seven ways to do this, five ways to do that. The number eleven has an almost mystical significance to him. (Check out all the 11.11 Bible verses.) So does the number forty."
* Please reference the educational page on this website: "God and Numbers" - for an Biblical explanation concerning the number "eleven".
Be ever mindful, Satan can preform all matter of signs and wonders that even the very elect would be deceived if God did not shorten the end times - (Matt. 24:24). Likewise, man-made technology can also produce like "voice of god" deceptive effects (refer to the sacredpursuit.org website page: "Targeted Individuals - Death to Christians", for an educated introduction concerning such technology). When a person believes in coincidences and synchronocity signs and wonders, the ground work is set for demonic deceptions sent from on high. Such extra Biblical belief systems of occult logic go against God's Holy Spiritual order and plan (2nd Corinthians 5:7).
What does this 11:11 guidance of divination prove? That Satan can and does take God's children away from the simple truth of His Holy Word.
"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough." (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4).
Why do I attribute this amazing 11:11 testimony of divination to Satan's service?
Two Very Good Reasons:
1. God tells us His word is to be our primary guide in life, not other worldly methods of divination using His word to confirm such occult practices. "Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth," - John 17:17. That our "testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy," (Revelation 19:10). James Ryle added to God's word reading in an esoteric meaning towards his abstract method of divination and occult logic. Which is an abomination and a practice God forbids (Revelation 22:18-19; Proverbs 30:5-6; Deuteronomy 4:2).
God's Biblical Warning: I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book; if anyone adds to them, God shall add to him the plagues which are written in this book; And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life and from the Holy City, which are written in this book. - Revelation 22:18-19.
2. Tuning in to an "energy field" of divination signs and wonders is not of God. "This is a wicked generation. It asks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah," (Luke 11:29-30). Jame Ryle, sought a sign, looking and reading into the slightest of things. By his own misguided, demonic inspired logic, he can likewise be continually, easily lead astray. For the world of spiritual deception is armed by fallen angel agents, who seek to take our attention and affirmation away from God's word, and into the occult world of New Age signs and wonders.
SYNTHIA ESTHER'S NOTE:
* Every one of the "major" players and promoters in the 11:11 Lightworker / DNA wake-up call movement are New Age believers and esoteric-occult practitioners. Divination means and ways lean the thoughts of humanity towards Gnostic laws of attraction, and away from God's simple logic of Scripture, which is holy, firm, and true. Such is Satan's plan. To lead the whole world astray (Revelation 12:9).
HOLDING TRUE TO GOD'S WORD - OUR FIRM FOUNDATION
One can only conclude with works that do not hold true to God's word, that other worldly, deceptive voices were involved in the delusion. Deception is one of Satan's greatest tools (Revelation 12:9; Matthew 24:4,5,11, 24). Satan has a harlot church, which is contrary to God's,"Bride of Christ" (Revelation 17:5). Satan does counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders (Revelation 16:14; Exodus 7:8-12).
He has false prophets, apostles, and teachers (2nd Corinthians 11:13-14; 2nd Peter 2:1; Mark 13:22; Matthew 13:38). And Satan gives doctrines of deception for men to teach ( 1st Timothy 4:1). Satan has his messengers - who are demons and humans (2nd Corinthians 11:13). He is a false Christ, and the rival of God's Christ Jesus our Lord (1st John 2:18-22). "For the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever," Isaiah 40:8.
Anything, person, written work, revelation, that goes contrary to the word of God is "not" of God. In his book "Charismatic Chaos," - Zondervan Publishing House, John F. MacArthur, Jr. addresses this very question (page 64):
"Some charismatics would say that people misunderstand what they mean by prophetic utterance and new revelation. ...What is happening, they assume, is the clarifying of Scripture as it is applied or directed to a contemporary setting, such as the prophecy of Agabus in Acts 11:28. The line between clarifying Scripture and adding to it is a thin one. ...Scripture is clarified as it is carefully and diligently studied. (See the account of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8:28-35.) There are no shortcuts to interpreting God's Word accurately (ef. Acts 17:11; 2 Tim. 2:15). Christians must not play fast and loose with the issues of inspiration and revelation. ...As we have seen, men who professed to speak for god but spoke their own opinions were to be executed under the Old Testament law (Deut. 13:1-5). New Testament believers are also urged to test the spirits and judge all supposed prophecies, shunning false prophets and heretics (1 John 4:1; 1 Cor. 14:29)." Above all this world has to offer, we must place God first. Remembering, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory, " (Isaiah 6:3).
