911 New York City
(By: Lennie Fisher)
Lennie Fisher is an Irishman living in London. This is his testimony in relation to the events surrounding the 911 Twin Tower disaster in New York City.
In the 1980's I was involved in the manufacture and construction of tall buildings in Cities such as London and New York. I had taken a break from that business to do other things in the 90's - mostly Florida USA - where I lived at that time.
During 2001, it was a surprise for me when my old partner from New York made contact to see if I wanted to get back in the business. We had been responsible for the buildings that surrounded the Twin Towers in New York, and a group from China wanted to see our projects with a view to ask us to replicate them in Shanghai. I was already very interested in China so I agreed to get involved. I was in London, and we agreed to meet in early September in New York. I flew into Florida on September 5 with an associate from China to prepare.
On September 7th, I called my partner, Jake, in New York to arrange our meeting with him and the delegation from China. Monday the 10th was too soon we decided, so at 4:04pm on Friday the 7th we confirmed our breakfast meeting would be held in the Twin Towers on Tuesday 11th September. Ms Sun and I would arrive on the evening of 10th to be prepared for the meeting.
The stage was set. I must first add that I never get sick, prior to that time. I might have felt unwell on a rare occasion, but never sick enough to cancel a meeting. This was a very important meeting worth many millions of dollars.
On Sunday the 10th I was sick; my throat was badly swollen. I was walking around Port St Lucie, Florida with my kids, trying to get a drug store to give me medicine. "Not without a prescription, sir," was the reply. Ms Sun had joined us for brunch and I told her I was going to postpone the meeting. She was shocked. I was out walking around, looking after my kids. I was not real sick. I was, however, sure for some reason inside my mind that I was not going to the Twin Towers on Tuesday, September 11th for breakfast.
My phone records show that I called my partner at home in New York at 11:52 am on Sunday 9th September. I just got voice Mail so I called his cell phone at 11:54 am. He was gutted. I could only tell him to postpone until I could give him a new date.
He was not real happy with me and Ms Sun was not real happy with me, and in fact . . . I was not real happy with me. We cancelled the Monday flights and that was it.
Next day - Monday morning - Ms Sun came to ask how I was. Now I had a bigger problem. The trip was off and I was 100% well! No sore throat; completely gone without any medicine.
It would be fair to say she was not happy with me, and I dared not call my partner in New York. He would have gone crazy; everything was on hold.
I pacified Ms Sun by promising to take her to the shops in Miami about 100 miles south next morning, Tues 11th of September.
We left early to miss the traffic and stopped for breakfast at a nice Hotel in Fort Lauderdale just north of Miami.
At breakfast we where beside a big screen TV. I never watch TV in America. There is so much junk, I had no TV service at home - just video for the kids, so for me to see live news was a very slim chance.
However, right beside us the TV was broadcasting the news that the whole world has now seen the devastation of the Twin Towers and the massive loss of life.
Everyone in the Hotel was shocked, but Ms Sun was clearly shaken . . . knowing that we had come so close to being there. For me, it was another time to say, "Thank you, God, again!," as my life has been spared so many times.
Over the next two hours that great nation of America closed. Everything stopped. Most all the shops and businesses closed; all flights and transportation stopped; it was an entire nation in mourning.
My partner from New York called to say 'thank you." He did not go to the Towers as our meeting had been postponed. He told me that he had just said farewell to his friend by phone who was trapped in an office in one of the Twin Towers and he could not escape.
As a member of the Security Forces in Northern Ireland, I had been fighting Terrorism since I was 19 years old. I could personally deal with this, but I could see that for many people it was their first real taste of the evil that exists in our world.
This should be the end of my story. However ... God has been my constant source through a tough life. He had not yet spoken about 911 to me. On the night of 11 September I prayed like most of the civilized world about these events. I asked God for wisdom and asked him why I had been invited to New York and then was prevented from going. In three days my prayer was answered.
I was sitting in a classroom; I was the only person apart from the teacher. I have been instructed before in the same room with the same man. He is non- descript and stands beside a white board with a marker but never uses the marker. He began telling me what happened in New York.
"This was Satan's answer to David and Goliath."
I was aware of this story. It is depicted in the Bible, 1 Samuel chapter 17, starting with verse 20.
I was thinking ... okay ... this could be a little similar. But the man was keen to explain exactly.
"Okay," he said, "David the shepherd boy was told to go to the brook and choose five smooth stones. (Verse 40 ) These stones where chosen because they where washed smooth by the water; they where five aerodynamic flying objects. The terrorists chose five aircraft, (five aerodynamic flying objects)."
As I was instructed in my dream, I was able to agree with these facts, as I had read the story many times.
He continued . . .
"David the shepherd boy slung the stone at the giant Goliath. Now Lennie, you have always misunderstood the Bible. The Bible is clear the stone entered his forehead." This spoke volumes to me. I had always misunderstood. Now this person in my dream is not just confirming facts, but even confirming my personal misunderstandings.
"Verse 49 is clear. (The stone entered the forehead). The first aircraft entered the building at a height that would be representative as the place of the forehead of a Giant."
Then he continued, "The giant fell on his face to the ground. David took Goliath's own sword and attacked him from behind, cutting off his head."
"The second aircraft was America's own sword. It came from the other direction. It banked over like a sword and almost severed the building, hitting it lower as a symbol of cutting of the head of a Giant."
This is what I was told; I have no personal theory to share. My opinion is not important. This is the dream as given to me.

Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity.
(Matthew 6:19-21 is our assurance)
