Bible-Code Riddle about...
A 99-letter Bible Code!
What if the bible was self-interpreting when read backward?
Well this bible code does just that!
Imagine if you could simply read the same text in reverse---and it would explain what is written in the forward normal text!
Well, sometimes the bible does do this!!!
The main purpose of this document, however, is to refute the notion that the only reason why this Web site was able to produce such large (200-Hebrew-word) bible codes was that it was decoded by going around in a series of alternating
circles, and that these circles merely increased the probabilities for random-chance 'codes'.
So, to refute this notion, here is a bible code that is 32 words long (99-Hebrew letters)! For arguments sake, in this document we use the traditional method of going in a straight line---and that at the
lowest skip sequence possible---minus one (ELS)! This will demonstrate that the method of reading in circles is just one of many methods by which the bible codes are deciphered. God is a God of wonderful variety!
Lamb Bible Prophecy Code
The bible code prophecy is from the creation narrative, which, while real history, is nevertheless highly symbolic. Like all the bible codes, it too is a riddle. I will keep my own interpretation
down to a minimum, but for those familiar with the symbolism in the bible, and with the sacrificial system given by Moses, this bible code should not be too difficulty to interpret. The whole narrative of the Genesis
story is given below, as well as the Hebrew for the code.
This bible code reads Genesis 4:2-4 in reverse. Genesis 4:2-4, as normal, reads:
"Next she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a tiller of the ground. In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground, and Abel for his part brought
of the firstlings of his flock, their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Abel and his offering,..." (Click here for full text.)
The same passage read backward, says the following...
But before we read it, we must note several plays on words that one would miss in the English translation, and the significance of cleansing water in the bible.
The first line of the bible code sets the stage for the rest of the passage: "His Lamb will become a hot vapor." "Vapor" is a play on words for Abel's name, which means the same. Abel is offering "his lamb" in sacrifice to the
Lord---and it will 'dissolve' like the "vapor' of the 'hot' springs that watered the earth by its mist and brought forth life, (Genesis 2:6-7). (Most modern scholars now understand this 'mist' to have been underground springs. Many
creationists think that these were hot springs. This bible code bears this out.) Abel, too, was like a fleeting mist that passes away, (as his name implied), since his brother Cain slew him. ('Abel' is a type of Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.)
In the Old Testament sacrificial system, some sacrifices were burned whole, while
others were boiled in water---and it is primarily the latter that is being brought out here in this code, (even though Abel's was a whole burnt offering; (see picture on left). Thus, we have the "burnt offering" and the "trespass and sin offerings"
combined, (Ezk. 46:20-24). Moreover, 'water' is a well-know symbol for cleansing from sins, just as "washed garments" are a known type of a 'covering for sin and guilt.' Guilt is not skin deep, but is a matter of 'the heart.' 'Circumcision of the heart' has a
similar meaning in the bible:
"In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ," (Col. 2:11).
I leave the rest of the bible code to your own investigation!
In the following translation, every word in the code that is found in the plain surface text is hyper linked so you can jump back and forth to that narrative that relates.
Read the bible code slowly, comparing the code with the surrounding text from which it is hidden (by following the hyperlinks). Repeat words are hyper linked just once, and are thereafter in dark blue.
"His Lamb will become a vapor, His hot one!
But she (or, "you") rejected Him, the tender one among them!
He greatly longed to dissolve the enmity ---a heart of destruction and woe in order
to bring about grace.
What is the garment of I AM ---the one hanging down them?
(He will be declared innocent!)
His Father will pour out waters;
Let them be for a garment!
The Lord made an underground stream to boil;
they will be declared innocent! (double meaning for, 'they [the waters] will be emptied!')
He rejected the uncircumcision within her;
Let them be for her a (circumcision of the) heart!"
Or, if the name of "Cain" is removed from the bible code, (thereby removing the questionable word, "he-will-be-declared-innocent," from the code), then its removal may itself be significant since the remainder of the bible code may also read:
His Father will pour out waters,
Let them be for a garment!
The Lord made an underground stream to boil,
they will be freed from guilt!
(But) He rejected the uncircumcised one among her.
Ezekiel 44:9 says:
"Thus saith the Lord GOD; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among the children of Israel."
The Hebrew Chart
The bible code reads backwards. Therefore, it starts from the bottom. Blue dots serve as word dividers. (Dots were sometimes used as word dividers in ancient times, by the way.) The
numbers alongside the text show how many letters into the bible it is. I have added vowel pointing at spots to avoid ambiguity.
The word, "garment of I AM," is the name of the Lord as revealed at the burning bush. It is a Name loaded with meaning in this context. It is spelt using the shortened method of the spelling of the verb, "I will be," as in
"Ho I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes," (cf., Hos.
13:7,10 as well.)
However, the bible code, for arguments sake, may instead read: "...What garment? Where? He is hanging down them!..."
The blue dot with the small yellow squares above and below it marks where the letter 'he' is missing in the word, "He-will-be-declared-innocent!" This is not entirely strange, however, and such occurs a number of times in the bible. (Cf.,
Jer. 40:16. Most bible scholars say that these mother-vowels were added long after Moses wrote these words. See, "The seal of Ahaz.")
However, the inclusion of this word without the full ending would be objectionable to many, therefore we note the following: If the word is dropped entirely, thus splitting the bible code into two divided parts, yet even this would be significant because
these three letters in fact spell the name of "Cain" (in the surface text). Now, Cain was 'uncircumcised of heart," as the bible code says, and this is why he (and his offering) was rejected. Therefore, the elimination of the name of Cain
from the bible code may symbolize the removal of Cain---'the rejected uncircumcised one.' I have found numerous examples in the bible codes elsewhere where the very position of the letters within the code was highly
Most of the tenses are in the prophetic past/future tense, and there would be little change in meaning if translated literally.
The Hebrew may be choppy at points, but please note that this bible code is highly poetic, and symbolic. And after all, it is code, (and not a simple narrative), and should be examined as such! The fact that the riddle insightfully interprets the actual
surface text when read backward is proof enough that this is a genuine code. The fact that the writing makes use of complex poetry whereby five statements are immediately and authoritatively answered by Divine proclamation more than makes up for any weakness due to the
mother-vowel issue or awkwardness of the Hebrew.
The actual text from where the bible code is taken from is underlined.
Genesis 2:4 (NASV)
These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created. In the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
5 when no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up--for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground;
6 but a stream (i.e., mist) would rise from the earth, and water the whole face of the ground--
7 then the LORD God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.
8 ¶ And the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9 Out of the ground the LORD God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10 A river flows out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it divides and becomes four branches.
11 The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one that flows around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 and the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there.
13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one that flows around the whole land of Cush.
14 The name of the third river is Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.
16 ¶ And the LORD God commanded the man, "You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;
17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die."
18 ¶ Then the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner."
19 So out of the ground the LORD God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.
20 The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every animal of the field; but for the man there was not found a helper as his partner.
21 ¶ So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then he took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.
22 And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
23 Then the man said, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman, for out of Man this one was taken."
24 Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh.
25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, 'You shall not eat from any tree in the garden'?"
2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden;
3 but God said, 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.'"
4 But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die;
5 for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
6 ¶ So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who
was with her, and he ate.
7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.
8 They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
9 ¶ But the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?"
10 He said, "I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself."
11 ¶ He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?"
12 The man said, "The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate."
13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this that you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent tricked me, and I ate."
14 ¶ The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you among all animals and among all wild creatures; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.
15 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel."
16 ¶ To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."
17 ¶ And to the man he said, "Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree about which I commanded you, 'You shall not eat of it,' cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life;
18 thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
20 ¶ The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
21 ¶ And the LORD God made garments of skins for the man and for his wife, and clothed them.
22 ¶ Then the LORD God said, "See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"--
23 therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
24 He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a sword flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life.
Now the man knew his wife Eve, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, "I have produced a man
with the help of the LORD."
2 Next she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a tiller of the ground.
3 ¶ In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground,
4 and Abel for his part brought of the firstlings of his flock, their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Abel and his offering,
5 but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.
6 ¶ The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your countenance fallen?
7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is lurking at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it."
8 ¶ Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let us go out to the field." And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him.
9 ¶ Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" He said, "I do not know; am I my brother's keeper?"
10 And the LORD said, "What have you done? Listen; your brother's blood is crying out to me from the ground!
11 And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.
12 When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth."
13 ¶ Cain said to the LORD, "My punishment is greater than I can bear!
14 Today you have driven me away from the soil, and I shall be hidden from your face; I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and anyone who meets me may kill me."
15 Then the LORD said to him, "Not so! Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance." And the LORD put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him.
16 ¶ Then Cain went away from the presence of the LORD, and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
17 Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch; and he built a city, and named it Enoch after his son Enoch.
18 To Enoch was born Irad; and Irad was the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael the father of Methushael, and Methushael the father of Lamech.
19 ¶ Lamech took two wives; the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
20 Adah bore Jabal; he was the ancestor of those who live in tents and have livestock.
21 His brother's name was Jubal; he was the ancestor of all those who play the lyre and pipe.
22 Zillah bore Tubal-cain, who made all kinds of bronze and iron tools. The sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.
23 ¶ Lamech said to his wives: "Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, listen to what I say: I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for striking me.
24 If Cain is avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy-sevenfold."
