The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 411
The meaning of the number 411 is derived primarily by its use to record God's correction.
God used 411 to record his attempt to correct the bitter attitude of a minor prophet. Jonah became angry when, after he had preached "Yet forty days and Nineveh shall be overthrown!" (Jonah 3:4), the people repented and the Lord spared the city. God then arranged for a plant to shade the prophet then quickly die in the hope Jonah would change his point of view.
And the Lord said, "You (Jonah) have had pity on the plant, for which you had not labored, nor made it grow, which came up overnight, and also perished in a night. And should I not spare Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than a hundred and twenty thousand men who do not know between their right and their left hand, besides much livestock?" (Jonah 4:10 - 11, HBFV throughout).
Revelation 4:11 (411) is the praise of twenty-four spiritual elders around God's throne who will, in the near future, cast their crowns before him and exclaim the following.
Worthy are You, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power because You did create all things, and for Your will they were created and exist (Revelation 4:11).
Number Four Hundred Eleven Appearances
The fourth chapter of Jonah and Revelation contain exactly 11 verses (411). Verse 11 of Jonah 4 also happens to be the last one of both the chapter and the book.
Hebrew entry 411 in Strong's Concordance is ale, found only 9 times in the Old Testament. It is a word translated as "these" or "those" in the King James Bible. Greek entry 411 in Strong's is anekdiegetos, which is found only once in the Greek New Testament. Anekdiegetos is meant to convey something is "unspeakable" or "indescribable."
And in their supplications for you, there is a longing on your behalf, because of the surpassing grace of God upon you. Now thanks be to God for His indescribable (anekdiegetos) free gift (2Corinthians 9:14 - 15).
Number 411 and Correction
The number 411 can also symbolize God's righteous correction either directly or through others. The Lord, in the Old Testament, used 411 to document his correction of Jonah (see above) as well as Cain and Moses.
And He (God) said (to Cain), "What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries to Me from the ground. And now you are cursed from the earth, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand" (Genesis 4:10 - 11).
And Moses said to the Lord, "O my Lord, I am not a man of words now, nor since You have spoken to Your servant, but I am slow of speech and of a slow tongue." And the Lord said to him, "Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord?" (Exodus 4:10 - 11).
God, in Acts 4:11 (411), used Peter to correct the Sanhedrin. They were chastised for arresting the apostles after a man was healed in Jesus' name (3:6).
Be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarean, Whom you crucified, but Whom God has raised from the dead, by Him this man stands before you whole. This is the Stone that was set at naught by you, the builders, which has become the Head of the corner (Acts 4:10 - 11).
God also inspired the recording, through number 411, of the Apostle Paul correcting both the churches of Corinth and the Galatia.
We (Apostle Paul, Apollos and other apostles) are fools for the sake of Christ, but you (those in Corinth) are wise in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are glorious, but we are without honor. To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and wander without a home (1Corinthians 4:10 - 11).
I (Paul) am afraid for you (the Galatian churches), lest somehow I have labored among you in vain (Galatians 4:11).
411 in the Bible is also linked to the Ark of the Covenant (see Joshua 4:11, 1Samuel 4:11).
