We live in the day when we are going to see rulers try to force everyone to worship the image or be killed. The enemy tempts us with all forms of idolatry. But the Lord says, "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me." Refuse to bow before idols. Flee from idolatry.
We must repent, and worship God alone, in Spirit and Truth, through His Son Jesus Christ, who comes to baptize us with the Holy Spirit and fire. He is good, for His lovingkindness is upon Israel forever.
At this time, there is none who understands, there is none who seeks for God. We must be righteous and live by faith. We must prove ourselves to be more righteous than the hypocrites. We must cry out for a wise and discerning heart, rather than for riches, long life, or the death of our enemies. The Lord will do for you whatever you ask, if you ask in Jesus Name. We must turn away from evil and do good; we must seek peace and pursue it. We ought to be in holy conduct and godliness. Then all the people will know that we are a people of excellence. We should love one another. We ought to be looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God. God’s people must lead a disciplined life. We must not reject the discipline of the LORD or loathe His reproof. Ask for the discipline of the Lord. Ask Him to reprove you.
Saints must take direction from God. Share food and clothing with those in need. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse. Our lives must be built on the right foundation, which is Jesus Christ. When we do so, we are able to sing, praising and giving thanks to the LORD. The people will shout with a great shout when they praise the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD Jesus Christ has been laid. But many are building on something else. Their lives have become contaminated. Does a fountain send out from the same opening both fresh and bitter water? Even the ocean waters have become bitter with radioactive poison.
The world and even most of those in the church do not accept God’s testimony. This is what the Lord God says, whether they listen or not. Many Christians are now perverted and are sinning, being self-condemned. They are faithless and treacherous. The judgment of Church leaders is influenced by money; many pastors, preachers, and priests teach and preach for a price; and prophets prophesy for money. Yet they lean on the LORD saying, "Is not the LORD in our midst? Calamity will not come upon us." The Lord swore in His wrath regarding such people, "They shall not enter My rest."
Judgment is coming. The Lord is about to do a thing at which both ears of everyone who hears it will tingle. The Lord will remove from our midst the proud, exulting ones among us. He will chase them and tear them to pieces; He will make them desolate. The enemy will pull down their strength and loot their strongholds. When they are left behind, they will be hiding, and will search for a refuge from the enemy. They will hide themselves from the Lord to cover their shameful nakedness, because they have eaten from the tree that the Lord commanded them not to eat. They will wish they had never been born, or that they had died as soon as they were born.
Jesus is coming quickly; if you're already keeping His Word, then hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. The resurrection from the dead is about to happen. The Lord’s presence is moving now, and His chosen people are about to cross over into the Promised Land. His Bride should go forth and gaze on King Jesus with His crown. His royal wedding day has now come, the day of gladness of His heart. This is the time. The windows of heaven are about to open. The Lord Himself will descend.
Sun and moon will stand in their places; They will stop shining at the light of the Lord’s arrows, at the radiance of His gleaming spear. A renewal is about to reach completion, in which there is no race distinction, and Christ is all in all. The Lord is about to rescue us out of all our persecutions and suffering. He will rebuke the devourer for us. The day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. We will see God carry out His eternal purpose in Christ Jesus. That which is about to happen will bring an eternal glory that remains forever.
If there is any theme or message in the 311 Scriptures, this would be it, in my opinion. But you should pray about it and ask the Lord to confirm it for you, if it is true. Use your discernment, and please understand that this is not a prophecy, but my understanding of the times, as well as my understanding of the Scriptures (1 Chr 12:32; Mt 16:3; Lk 12:56).
Now here are the 3:11’s of Scripture, which seem to have a message from the Lord for the church at this time:
"Go to the exiles, to the sons of your people, and speak to them and tell them, whether they listen or not, 'Thus says the Lord GOD.'" (Eze 3:11)

Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes," says the LORD of hosts. (Mal 3:10-11)
“Persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me!” (2Ti 3:11)
Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, "The righteous man shall live by faith." (Gal 3:11)
God said to him, "Because you have asked this thing and have not asked for yourself long life, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have you asked for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself discernment to understand justice, behold, I have done according to your words. Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart, so that there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you." (1Ki 3:11-12)
"My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His reproof." (Pro 3:11)

“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat!” (2Pe 3:10-12)
“Sun and moon stood in their places; They went away at the light of Your arrows, At the radiance of Your gleaming spear.” (Hab 3:11)
"In that day you will feel no shame Because of all your deeds By which you have rebelled against Me; For then I will remove from your midst Your proud, exulting ones, And you will never again be haughty On My holy mountain." (Zep 3:11)
Her leaders pronounce judgment for a bribe, Her priests instruct for a price And her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean on the LORD saying, "Is not the LORD in our midst? Calamity will not come upon us." (Mic 3:11)
Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, "An enemy, even one surrounding the land, Will pull down your strength from you And your citadels will be looted." (Amo 3:11)
“You too will become drunk, You will be hidden. You too will search for a refuge from the enemy.” (Nah 3:11)

Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare a war; rouse the mighty men! Let all the soldiers draw near, let them come up! Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, "I am a mighty man." Hasten and come, all you surrounding nations, And gather yourselves there. Bring down, O LORD, Your mighty ones. Let the nations be aroused And come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, For there I will sit to judge All the surrounding nations. (Joe 3:9-12)

Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster
Coincidentally, March 11, 2011 or 3/11, was the day when the tsunami hit Japan and caused the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, which was the worst nuclear disaster in world history. We are now coming up on the third anniversary of that event, and the effects of radiation are still impacting the planet.
Another article from Liberty Voice reports that the radiation contaminated waters of the Pacific have reached the West Coast of the United States, Mexico, and Canada. In fact, it is contaminating the fish along the coast! They have even found that the Alaska sockeye salmon population has declined, and the numbers of bird deaths on the West Coast has risen. Furthermore, even the mushrooms and berries along the US west coast are contaminated with caesium-137.
Not only did South Korea ban Japanese seafood and fish imports in September, but in December, China has banned all shellfish imports from the Pacific Coast of the US! An article from Ideastream News states, "China has closed its doors to all shellfish imports from an area that stretches from northern California to Alaska. The state of Washington says it's losing as much as $600,000 a week."
Moreover, the plankton is also dying off in the waters of the US Pacific Coast, as reported in Washington's Blog. One commenter on that blog named Tall Tom aptly stated:
"The Plankton are dying off. The Pacific Current acts as a conveyor belt bringing fresh Plankton into contact with the poisoned waters off of Fukushima. As they die off there is less Oxygen that is generated through Photosynthesis. This leads to the depletion of Oxygen in Ocean Waters and makes the Oceans acidic...The death of the Oceans, through famine from the loss of Plankton, and a depletion of Oxygen for Aquatic Life is happening as a direct result of Fukushima. Our Atmosphere will also slowly be depleted of Oxygen due to the Plankton Die Off...That depletes the Oxygen supply as well as the supply of the basic building block of the Oceanic Food Chain...The Oceans are dying, and as a result, so will most land-based life, unless we can stop the leaks of poisoned water."
The number of global impacts from this disaster are too many to list here. The Pacific Current will continue to send out bitter waters from Fukushima that will further contaminate the oceans. And it will likely continue until the end of the age when the Lord destroys the earth by fire.
An interesting side note is that the third trumpet of the apocalypse turns a third of the earth's waters bitter. (Note: I am not saying that this trumpet has already been sounded or fulfilled).
"The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter." (Rev 8:11)
In a New York Times article published on July 25, 1986, called "Chernobyl Fallout: Apocalyptic Tale," S. Schmemann first noted the link between Chernobyl and the Ukrainian word for "wormwood." The name of the location where the infamous nuclear reactor disaster happened is derived from the Ukrainian word "chornobyl" - a plant whose Latin botanical name is Armetisia vulgaris, known as "common wormwood." That was in the Ukrainian Bible before the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster ever happened on April 26, 1986. Since both the Fukushima and Chernobyl nuclear power plants experienced radioactive disasters, and since the name Chernobyl is derived from chornobyl, or Wormwood, this connection seems to associate the bitter waters of Fukushima with the end time apocalyptic events of Revelation. I am not saying that the Fukushima disaster is a result of the future, third trumpet. But could Fukushima be a harbinger of the third trumpet and a sign of the Lord's soon return?
After I published this article, I saw a brother, named Todd, say he had a dream of the Fukushima earthquake on 3/11/11. So I sent this article to him, and he replied: “I have read your blog article, and found it extremely interesting. After asking and seeing it so many times in January to March 2011, the Lord awakened me with the number 311 and led me to Revelation 3:11," which says, "I AM coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown."
Then brother Todd says the Lord confirmed it to him on 3/11/11 with the earthquake in Japan. On that night of March 10 – 11, Todd had a dream of an earthquake in Japan, and told his family about it when he awoke. Afterward that morning, they saw the earthquake broadcast on television in the hotel lobby where they were staying.
Then after a period of over two years elapsed, I wrote an article on February 19, 2016, titled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster, which is like a part two of this present article.
Putting it All Together
I believe that the 3:11 Scriptures in God's Word do describe the days we are living in, which we could call a 311 moment. If you have just read this message, and you have ears to hear what the Lord is saying, then let me encourage you. Jesus is coming quickly now. If you are already living a consecrated life for the Lord, in holiness, righteousness, and truth, then hold onto what you have. Look heavenward, for your redemption draws near. And warn those who will listen.
If you are not living as you should, and you have become worldly or lukewarm toward the Lord, then repent. Cry out for mercy. Wake up, and seek the Lord with all your heart. Continue to live a life of daily repentance, doing God's will. Stay ready and on the alert for our Lord's return. And don't forget to warn others and lead them to live their lives for Jesus Christ.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
