the purpose of the Bible Codes?
- When I was in the Navy, I had a
high security clearance and attended a school on "Codeworded"
To attempt an explanation of this, suppose you are a U.S.
submarine commander just below the surface of the Atlantic ocean.
On board you have many ballistic missiles. One day you receive
from the White House a highest priority message with the
highest "Codeword". It is an order for you to launch
your missiles which will without a doubt begin a third world
war and annihilate many cities. Obviously in this
"electronic" day and age of hackers and terrorists
it is absolutely necessary that there be an authentication
system to ensure that the launch message you just received did
in fact come from the President of the United States. A
message such as this will not at any time be acted upon until
it passes an elaborate "authentication system". In
this case the authentication system may or may not include:
the commander and at least two other individuals on board
studying the authentication code in the White House message
and agreeing that based on classified known criteria including
certain patterns and number counts that it is authentic. And
then only after this passes their inspection will all three
unlock the silos with 3 individual keys.
This is what I believe the Bible Codes are like...Evidence is
mounting that the Bible codes are from God to ensure we are
absolutely certain that the Bible as passed to us over
thousands of years is the Word of God!
THESE BIBLE CODES FOR SURE?
There are way too many occurrences in these
Bible Codes suggesting that they are
probably not here by chance. If you
were to ask me if you should base any
theological or dogmatic decisions on these
alone vs the Holy Scripture in the Bible --I will say;
Are these a 100% sure thing? Not
enough is yet known about Bible Codes at
this time to say that. One thing I
have noted about the Bible Codes is that,
just like ALL Scripture--they too point
toward, and scream out; "Jesus Christ (Yeshua)
is the Son of God, He is your Savior, Your
Messiah, Lord of Lord and King of
Kings". Listen to the Holy Spirit
in all matters of faith and dogma. The
fact that the words; "Jesus
is My Name" was not too long ago
found by Yacov Rambsel in the most germane
"Suffering Servant" passage
(Isaiah 53) lends more credibility to these
codes. God's saving
grace is a an un broken pattern both in the Biblical text and
perhaps also now via the Bible Codes.
When you read the Bible you can stop listening to the academic
doubters that say the Bible is not to be taken as literally or
as a historic record! Some of the same doubters (some actually
church pastors among them) arrogantly and erroneously claim
that bible stories are just tales and that there was no virgin
birth of Christ.
Essential to understanding the Bible is its central focus.
The Bible absolutely points toward the Lord Jesus Christ at the central point. You
will also realize that the Exodus and the parting of the Sea
happened, and that Moses did write the first books of the
Bible exactly as God had directed Him to do--and even more
startling -- probably word by word and letter by letter.
The Bible is in fact the Word of
God and has been directly inspired by God!
Within the Bible God forbids us to try and foretell the
future! So, the Bible Codes are not to be used that way!
Everything found so far has been "after the fact".
But the more you study the Bible there
can also be no doubt that Our Lord Jesus suffered for us, was
crucified on a Roman Cross in Jerusalem, rose from the dead
and ascended into Heaven. The Bible will assure you that Jesus
(Yeshua) Christ is the absolute central point of the entire
Bible, that Jesus is merciful, forgiving and wonderful, and that He will come
for his Church!
- Another astounding
development in the search
for the truth revealed via the Bible Codes is
that we are now beginning
to see not only truths clustered "below" the truths
they speak of in the
text--but in some instances God has actually drawn pictures
with these codes. Bible-codes.org
is deeply involved with this "graphic search".
