This site has been started to promote what we call the Eleven-Eleven principle.
This is taken from Proverbs 11:11 –
By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. PROVERBS 11:11 KJV
Words have power. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, we are told in Proverbs 18:21. This means that what people SAY can have a massive impact on the spiritual condition of the city, town or village they live in.
Your community is directly influenced by the aggregate tone of the words spoken over it and about it.
That is why it is so vital to speak words of blessing, life, health and prosperity over your community. You literally have the power to release life and wellbeing upon the place you live and the people who live there with you!
This is a power and authority you can walk in immediately to be a dispenser of blessing to your city.
It is also a responsibility that you must take very seriously. Instead of speaking negatively about the place you live and running it down, you can change the very atmosphere and even through time the physical landscape by blessing it and pronouncing good things. You can prophesy hope and a good future in places where others have said “nothing worthwhile happens here.”
The very essence of the Lord’s Prayer is contained in the words; “THY KINGDOM COME; THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.” These words release Heaven’s authority into a situation and command the earth to line up with what goes on in the glory realm of Heaven. They are powerul words, suoernatural words and nation-transforming words. That is, of course, when they are spoken with intent and purpose, not just repeated by rote.
Jesus said that what we bind on earth will be bound in heaven and what we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. This is another way of saying that we have the authority AND the mandate to decree that earth will align itself to heaven.
There is no sickness in heaven. There is no poverty in heaven. There is no dangerous area in heaven. There fore Jesus is empowering us to change our environment by imposing upon it Heaven’s template and commanding where we live to conform to this template.
Another way of looking at it is to think of it as positive vibes as opposed to negative ones. By radiating positivity concerning our communities, we can transform them by changing the atmosphere. No more doom and gloom; instead, uplifting and life-enhancing thoughts and words.
It is important to emphasise that we are not talking here about wishful thinking or castles-in-the-sky dreaming. Far from being unrealistic, we are actually changing reality by eradicating negativity and replacing it with a far healthier atmosphere.
There is a mighty power in blessing verbally a person, place or thing. You imbue it with spiritual energy which is the very Life and Presence of God. We understand this by the word “anointing” which is both Old and New Testament. It literally means “to smear” and the idea is that if you are smeared with the Presence of God, you will leave a bit of it everywhere you go in much the same way you would if you were drenched in natural oil.
Blessing is verbally releasing the Presence of God upon something or someone. You do this by prophesying good things and by speaking the Name and Presence of God. This creates a change in the spiritual atmosphere of an area. Unfortunately,cursing can do the same, only the change is for the worse.
A typical curse is to call an area “God-forsaken” but you can reverse this curse by decreeing that God inhabits and floods that place with His Presence.
Much of blessing a place is about understanding the negative things about that place and reversing them. For example, in an area of high unemployment you could decree that the place is widely known as an area where everyone has productive work and by speaking prosperity upon that area and those who live and work there.
Eleven-Eleven is not about saying how it is but how you want it to be. Speak what you desire for your community and you can transfom it.
