The Truth About The Bible Code

The Truth About The Bible Code

 The truth about the Bible CodeThe REAL Truth about The Bible Code

The Bible code, often called the Secret Bible code, says exactly what it is – the OCCULT (knowledge of the hidden, unknown or secret things). Any spiritual knowledge acquired through means other than what God permits, falls within the parameters of the occult.

To understand the occult nature of the Bible code, we need to look at what God says about secret or hidden things.

“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law. (Deuteronomy 9:29).

It simply means that God alone knows the secret things and no one will ever be able to reveal them, either through so-called extra- biblical revelations, visions and dreams or through the most advanced technical means available to man.

God has already revealed all the things He wants us to know and understand through plain and simple words and sentences.

Jesus Christ said:

Jesus answered him, “I have spoken openly to the world. I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together. I have said nothing in secret. (John 18:20)

Why would He have said nothing in secret while He was still on earth and yet say things in secret in the Old Testament? Satan speaks in secret with occult symbols and codes, not Christ.

Paul wrote,

Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. (2 Corinthians 4:1-2)

Paul says he renounced secret and shameful ways to present God’s Word and always set forth the thruth plainly and openly. The hidden things are not only disgraceful conduct but also clandestine arts common among pagans in Paul’s time. The christian Gospel is open, plain, and forthright. It has absolutely no association with cunning, trickery, and artifice. It must be defended openly; stated clearly; and urged with steady argument. It works in the light and not in darkness.

Will a young man who wants to express his love for his loved one and tell her that they would soon be united in holy matrimony write her a letter in secret codes and expect her to decipher his codes with a computer so that she may understand what he had written? I know what I would do. I will throw his letter into the trashcan.

God revealed for our children and us the things He wants us to know in plain and simple words and sentences so that we may read and study it with our God-given common sense.The written word is sufficient for us to understand God’s revealed will.

Admittedly, common sense cannot help us to understand the deeper spiritual truths in the Bible, and neither can the most advanced computers. Only the Holy Spirit can accurately interpret them to believers. Nonetheless, we can know His revealed things without relying on so-called Bible codes.

Jesus said, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. (John 16:13).

If God’s Spirit is the One who declares to us the things that are to come, why do we need so-called Bible codes discovered by an unbelieving Jew who used a form of numerology and the Jewish occult practice called Kabbalah to reveal to us the things that are to come? What does the Bible say?

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spakeas they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2Peter 1:19-21).

The modern “code” work was introduced by three Israelis: Doron Witztum, Eliyahu Rips, and Yoav Rosenberg. Witztum is said to be the world’s leading code researcher. Their work was first published in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society (1988) and was updated and republished in Statistical Science (1994), both prestigious professional journals. Michael Drosnin, a journalist, then popularized the “code” and made many sensational claims concerning its predictive qualities, in a 1997 Simon & Schuster book titled The Bible Code. Numerous Christian authors are enthusiastically using the “code” to support basic faith in Christ and in the Bible as God’s Word.

The fact that Yeshua Shemi (“Yeshua is My Name”) is found encoded in Isaiah 53 and Dam Yeshua (“the blood of Yeshua”) appears in Leviticus has been hailed by some evangelicals as the greatest discovery and most convincing proof ever revealed.

Unfortunately, researchers have subsequently demonstrated that using the same methodology, “the blood of Mohammed” and even “the blood of [David] Koresh” are also found in Leviticus and many additional times throughout the Torah. (Mohammed is found 2,328 times, Krishna 104 times, and Koresh 2,729 times in the Torah, using skip sequences up to 1,000 letters.

Even Buddha is found in Genesis and Lenin and “Rev. Moon” in Daniel. Moreover, the “code” is being used by some rabbis to prove that Jesus was a false Messiah: Yeshua and Mechashif (sorcerer) and NabiShekr (false prophet) are found in the Torah with identical skip sequences and even overlapping.

If the above were not enough to raise a red flag, growing numbers of mathematicians, statisticians and scientists are disputing the validity of the “code.” There is even disagreement among those who favor it. Ironically, Eliyahu Rips (a respected mathematics professor) has denounced Drosnin’s book. In fact, Drosnin pulls the rug out from under his own book with this closing statement: “Is the Bible code…warning us…of a very real danger? There is no way to know. The code may be neither ‘right’ nor ‘wrong.'” So where does that leave us?! (Please read the article here).

Are these men holy men of God who found this supposed Bible Code?

If our answer is, yes, then we should accept their computerized Bible codes as divine truth. If not then we should reject it outright and with the disdain it deserves.

Nonetheless, if the Holy Spirit is not the One who declared things like the Kennedy and Yitzhak Rabin’s assassinations, the Oklahoma bombing – everything from World War II to Watergate, and the Holocaust in these Bible codes, who inspired these so-called predictions?

The devil does not know the future and is therefore incapable of predicting it. However, he is quite capable of planning to do something, “predict” its future occurrences and then make it happen. Is he not the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4) and a murderer? (John 8:44). He must have been the one who planned events such the assassinations of Kennedy and Rabin, World War II and the Holocaust.

The word for “blinded” in 2 Corinthians 4:4 is τυφλόω (tuphloō) and means to obscure or hide things from one’s sight. Why are the Bible codes so dangerous? Its aim is to obscure from one’s sight the things that are revealed to us in Scripture in plain sight and to encourage us to indulge in hidden things that allegedly can only be revealed to us by means and ways (in this case, computers) other than through the Holy Spirit.

  • I have, from the moment I heard about the Bible Code — been convinced that it is occult, because everything necessary for our Salvation was complete when Jesus died on the Cross. I really cannot join with these Christians who are now harping on about the Jewish Feasts, Blood moons and the Bible code. I believe the straightforward message which has already been given and accomplished at the Cross and would like you to put me right if I am wrong, that all this about the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles etc, is finished with and according to John chapter 1 verse 1 to 14, it us a simple step of repentance, faith and obedience to Christ that leads to Salvation.I notice that the Bible Code is causing strife amongst believers. thank you for your info.
