Christian prophet Christa Elisha had a “prophecy” for the anniversary of September 11, 2001. The Elijah List published and shared it with the world. I read this and was disturbed. But instead of me writing a post, I put this before you, the reader to look at. What is wrong with what Christa Elisha says about God and September 11?
“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1 John 4:16
From the September 11, 2001 Museum in Manhattan.
I subscribe to The Elijah List. Really this blog has no respect for the organization or the theology coming from it. I see it as quite toxic. The other day there was a post about September 11 by Christa Elisha. I thought of doing a post about it. And due to the sensitivity of September 11 I did not want to put it up during the anniversary of the event. Instead I decided to use the post and want to ask you, the reader, what is wrong with what Christa Elisha is saying?
Since June of 2021, I have been meditating and praying into a vision I received from the Lord during my devotional time. In this encounter I saw my husband David and myself dressed as priests. We were attending to the coals on the altar in the tabernacle. It was not just any normal flame or embers to be tossed around without careful thought and attention. There was a sense of holy reverence and deep significance to the work we were doing. We both knew that this fire was precious because it had been initiated by God Himself and our lives depended on it staying lit.
As we stoked the flames, I saw my son and daughter come up to the altar to learn from us how to steward this fire, which must stay burning day and night. As we successfully trained our biological children, feeling confident they could keep the flame, we would give them some of the hot embers from our personal altar; then we’d send them out to a dark city where they could cultivate their own altar to the Lord, establish their own families of priests, and offer light to the region where they were sent.
Cities of Burning Torches
Then the Spirit of God took me up into the atmosphere above the earth so that I could see from His perspective. At first I saw theses David houses as small pins of light. But then more lights would pop up until the light began to take over whole regions. These cities looked like burning torches that people in the dark began to run to for safety and refuge. At that point the Spirit of God said, “Be fruitful and multiply, and subdue the earth.” I knew by the Spirit that what I was seeing was the birth and multiplication of apostolic revival hubs, house churches that operated like the churches in the Book of Acts 2, and intercession ministries that were devoted to unceasing prayer and worship that would minister to the Lord, night and day, similar to IHOPKC.
Holy Spirit then showed me a series of shakings that were coming to the earth. I knew that these shakings would accomplish 4 things in favor of the Kingdom:
• It would scatter the burning remnant Church among the nations for the purpose of global evangelism, multiplication and Kingdom advancement.
• It would separate the true Church of Jesus Christ from the false church.
• It would crumble the remaining foundation of monuments that the Church era built around a past move of God in order for the Lord to rebuild His house in this new Kingdom era.
• It would awaken the sleeping Church and compel them to action. (Photo via Px Fuel)
911 on Repeat
When I came out of this encounter with the Lord I looked up to see the clock read, “9:11.” In fact, for the last 3 months since this encounter, I have seen 911 on repeat every day and everywhere! Never before in my walk in the prophetic have I seen this number sequence on such a repetitive scale! Since God also speaks to me in divine recurring signs, symbols and circumstances, I recognize this to be the Lord SHOUTING: “Pay attention and heed My message of 911!”
This is what I believe the Lord is saying regarding 911:
In the days of David, this worshiping warrior King established a tabernacle (tent of meeting/house) that had singers and musicians who ministered to the Lord, night and day (see 1 Chronicles 16:4; 25:1). David, a man after God’s own heart, knew that the Lord inhabited the praises of His people and thus His manifested presence was the source of their salvation and victory over their enemies, time and time again. It was under the over-shadowing presence of El Shaddai that Israel alone found refuge (see Psalm 91:1)
“‘In that day I will restore the fallen house of David. I will repair its damaged walls. From the ruins I will rebuild it and restore its former glory. And Israel will possess what is left of Edom and all the nations I have called to be Mine.’ The Lord has spoken, and He will do these things.” (Amos 9:11-12, NLT)
“The context of Amos 9:11-12 is the governmental rule of Jesus from Jerusalem over all the nations. In Acts 15:13-18, James referred to Amos 9:11 declaring that Gentiles should be accepted into the predominantly Jewish Body of Christ, without needing to convert to Judaism. The apostles understood that in the end times, God would reestablish the Messianic kingdom over all the nations. God had just visited the Gentiles with salvation at Cornelius’s house (Acts 10). This was in agreement with Old Testament prophecy. James quoted Amos to prove that many Gentiles will be saved in the context of the restoration of the Davidic dynastic reign. This restoration will, of course, include David’s heart for worship and prayer. Though Amos 9:11 is not prophesying primarily about 24/7 intercessory worship, this kind of worship-based prayer will be a foundational reality in the release of Jesus’ worldwide rule over the nations.” (Excerpt from IHOPKC.com)
According to Troy Brewers book, Numbers that Preach, the number 9 in the Bible is associated with fruitfulness in the positive sense or judgment in the negative. Similarly, 11 in Scripture is associated with transition in faith or judgment in the negative. As an American, it’s hard to forget that today is the 20th anniversary of September 11th and the destruction of the twin towers. 20 is the biblical number associated with expectation in PRAYER and waiting for God to do something BIG.

The Wound Will Become a Womb
I am a firm believer that God’s mercy always triumphs over judgment (see James 2:13). Regardless of the current state of national and international events, the real remnant Church is AWAKE and we have been contending as individuals for God to intervene, big time! I feel this reality, like fire shut up in my bones:
The WOUND on this nation, from the destruction of the twin towers, will become a WOMB. God is going to birth a twin movement of 24/7 PRAYER and WORSHIP that will host the manifest presence of God over the nation and make the atmosphere ripe for souls to receive the declaration of the Gospel! Historically, waiting and expectancy in prayer always precedes BIG moves of faith that transition us from dead religion to vibrant revival that spreads like wild fire!
When our world is in a state of emergency we need to dial in to the Lord’s presence with prayer and worship! He is our strong tower that we can run into and find safety. Even in a time of shaking, His Kingdom remains unshakable! I feel the Lord is releasing blueprints, resources and strategies to help His people establish house churches (that will not be shut down by an oppressive government), prophetic prayer and worship ministries, and revival hubs that release the fire of the Holy Spirit over dry regions trapped in religiosity. God is calling His people back to their first love. THIS IS GOD’S HEART FOR OUR NATION AND THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. Ask for wisdom and He will give it in abundance to establish the works in His heart through you!
“‘The time will come,’ says the Lord, ‘when the grain and grapes will grow faster than they can be harvested. Then the terraced vineyards on the hills of Israel will drip with sweet wine! I will bring My exiled people back from distant lands, and they will rebuild their ruined cities and live in them again. They will plant vineyards and gardens; they will eat their crops and drink their wine.'” (Amos 9:13-14, NLT)
Faith is not a feeling; it is an action word. I pray that as you read this you are compelled to take action and ask the Lord what role you are called to take – to step into your role as a kingly priest. You are needed and valuable in the family of faith. Souls are hanging in the balance. Let the worship warriors arise!
