Other Codes!


A secret acrostic encoded 4000 years ago proclaims the message of forgiveness. The first letter of each consecutive Hebrew name from Adam to Abraham (a total of 19 names) reads, "I will forgive my enemies, showing compassion, forgiving those made from dust a second time."

There is also another acrostic code found in the parallel ungodly line of Cain. It contains 8 names and reads, "I will choose a circumcised people for myself (i.e., Jews), even various peoples for myself (i.e., Gentiles)."

An acrostic is a type of bible code. Psalm 119 is a classic example of an acrostic in the bible. The first letter of each series of sentences move successively through the Hebrew Alphabet. (Also true of Psalm 9, 10, 25, 34, 37, 111, and 112.) These are obvious acrostics. However, there seems that there is a secret acrostics in the bible as well. This article explores one of those 'hidden' ones --- hidden for 4000 years! The acrostic summarizes the plan of salvation from the beginning of time. 

This hidden acrostic is derived from the first three genealogies recorded in the bible, (Gen. 4, 5, 11). The first two genealogies overlap in that they both begin from Adam. The first is the genealogy of Cain's line (the ungodly line) whereas the second is the genealogy of Seth (the godly line). In the first genealogy, the first letter of each of the consecutive 8 names are read in order, and this is again repeated in Seth's line all the way down to Abraham's father, Terah.

A good knowledge of the first chapters of Genesis (where these genealogies are located) are essential to understanding what the acrostic means, particularly the creation and fall of man and the rising up of Cain against Abel and killing him. Also note the call of Abraham (Abram) out of Babylon as a chosen race of people and as a father of many peoples (nations), (Gen. 17:4,5,16; Josh. 24:3).

From Adam comes two lines of decent through his sons Cain and Seth. The acrostic for Cain's line begins with Adam and ends with Jabal, and the acrostic for Seth's line also begins with Adam but ends with Terah and with his son, Abraham. (For Abraham, see long version of the code.) These two parallel acrostics refer to four incidents in the bible, and these four incidents happen to occur at either end of the two lines of decent! The acrostics refer to the time of Cain and Jabal, and to the time of Adam and Abraham. Thus, the acrostic refers to incidents in the history of man that occur at either end of the acrostic's genealogy, and this in turn is applied prophetically to Christ. If the acrostic were somehow the work of inconceivable random chance, the code would not also produce logical sentences that capsulate key events in the two lineages, and each at either end of the genealogies, and then soundly apply them to Christ who ultimately completes the genealogy! 

"The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham." (Mat. 1:1) 

"And Jesus himself...being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli...
...the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God." (Luke 3:23,38).

On top of all this, the meaning of the names of each person in the genealogies when read consecutively pronounce yet another compatible prophecy. (See the meaning of names bible code.) It is easier to believe that a masterpiece by Rembrandt were the product of spilled paint then to believe that this code is the product of mere random chance!

Together, the acrostic reads:



"I will choose a circumcised people, even (many) peoples for myself!"

"I will forgive them that rose up against me,
having compassion, forgiving those from the dust a second time!"


Brief Commentary:

"I will choose a circumcised people, even peoples for myself!"

This first line of code is actually two harmonious readings joined together. (The code can read slightly different depending on where one separates the letters that form the last two Hebrew words.) It can read as, "I will choose a people, my circumcised ones", or, "I will choose peoples for myself!" Thus I understand it to read together as, "I will choose a circumcised people, even peoples for myself!"

This opening sentence is very interesting given the very purpose of the genealogical record. The genealogies were meant to document the lineage of the chosen seed! (Gen. 3:15; 17:4,5,16). Thus, the acrostic addresses the very purpose of the genealogy at its offset. What is the purpose of the genealogical record? The acrostic answers this very question by a solemn declaration from God: "I will select peoples for myself (from a descendent)!" 

Intriguingly, the last letters of the same first four names contains another acrostic that reads, "from a descendent!"

(All 8 names)
(First 4 names)
"I will select peoples for myself 
out from a descendent!"


The first line of the acrostic reads: "I will choose a circumcised people, even peoples for myself!" This is a clear reference to Abraham, the son of Terah. Abraham (and ultimately Christ) is that descendent whom God would call forth "a circumcised people", for he is called "the father of the circumcision, and of the uncircumcised," (Rom. 4:11-12). In agreement with the code, God promised Abraham that a people and peoples would come forth from his seed.

"And I took your father Abraham from beyond the River, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac." (Josh. 24:3)

"And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. And I will bless her, and moreover I will give thee a son of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be of her." (Gen. 17:15-16).

"I say then, Did God cast off his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham..." (Rom 11:1, also, Deut. 29:13; Ps. 47:9, etc.)

Again in agreement with the code, Paul says in the book of Romans that Abraham is the father of two groups of people, believers who are circumcised and believers who are uncircumcised:

"...that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be in uncircumcision, that righteousness might be reckoned unto them; and the father of circumcision to them who not only are of the circumcision, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham which he had in uncircumcision." (Rom. 4:10-12).

Therefore, the "peoples" spoken of in the code refer to both Jews and Gentiles. This opening sentence is encoded within the ungodly line of descent ---those of Cain who were "driven out from the presence of the Lord", (Gen. 4:14, cf., Job 18:19 in Hebrew). The fact that this first sentence is encoded within the ungodly line of descent (who perished in the flood) rather than in the godly line implies something important. It implies hope to lost men. It seems to indicate that the ungodly line of Cain is symbolic of the gentile seed in general (i.e., non-Jews) who were cut off from God and separate from the chosen seed (of Abraham) until the time of Christ. Thus, whereas the godly line represents the elect seed unto Abraham, to David, and then on to Christ; conversely, the ungodly line of Cain apparently represents the alienated seed.

"Wherefore remember, that once ye, the Gentiles in the flesh, ... that ye were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world." (Eph. 2:11-12)

"... and that he might make known the riches of his glory upon vessels of mercy, which he afore prepared unto glory, even us, whom he also called, not from the Jews only, but also from the Gentiles? As he saith also in Hosea, I will call that my people, which was not my people; And her beloved, that was not beloved." (Roman 9:23-25)


"I will forgive them that rose up against me,"

Ironically, what one would expect to be encoded within the line of Cain is instead encoded within the godly line of Seth and what is encoded within the godly line of Seth is instead encoded within the ungodly line of Cain! For the bible records that it was Cain that "rose up against his brother and slew him", (same Hebrew word as in code, Gen. 4:8). This implies that the godly line ultimately are no better off than Cain and that both people groups are in desperate need of forgiveness --- both Jew and Gentile!

"What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we before laid to the charge both of Jews and Greeks, that they are all under sin; as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none that understandeth, There is none that seeketh after God; They have all turned aside, they are together become unprofitable; There is none that doeth good, no, not, so much as one: Their feet are swift to shed blood;" (Rom. 3:9-12, 15).

The statement that "I will forgive them that rose up against me" also implies that Jesus is like righteous Abel. Abel was slain by His brother Cain in the same way Jesus was slain by His brethren, the Jews.

"Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:36-37)

"...having compassion, forgiving
(or "lifting up") those of dust a second time!"

Three times in this short acrostic bible code God emphasizes pardon: "I will forgive..." "having compassion," "forgiving".

"Those of dust" is an obvious reference to Adam and his descends on account that "Adam was formed from the dust of the earth," (Gen. 2:7, 3:19). (The Hebrew for "those of dust" can be understood as singular or plural, and refers to Adam and/or to His seed.) 

The acrostic declares that Adam (which in Hebrew means mankind) will be forgiven a "second time". What does "a second time" mean? And if there was a "second time", when was the first time? 

The 'first time' that God 'forgave' appears to refer to a combination of events as if all were part of one transgression. The code alludes to the original fall of Adam and also to the transgression that followed that, namely to when Cain killed his brother Abel. The reference in the code to "...forgive the one rising up against me", links it to Cain (as previously explained), whereas the reference to "forgive the one who is of dust", links it to Adam since he was formed from the dust. Only God could speak so full with meaning, and this further attests to the veracity of the bible code. 

Christ Comparable to Cain:

Cain's short genealogy begins with a reference to 'vengeance rendered seven times' and ends with Lamech, (seventh from Adam) and vengeance "seventy-seven times". This reference to "seven" and "seventy-seven" links the text to Christ, whom the bible calls the "last Adam", (1Cor. 15:22, 45). Note the stark contrast between the vengeance of Cain with the forgiveness of Jesus, (keeping in mind that "forgiveness" is the theme of the code).

"If Cain is avenged 7 times, then Lamech, 77 times." (Gen 4:24)

"Then Peter came up and asked him, "Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I have to forgive him? Seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I tell you, not just 7 times, but 77 times!" (Mat. 18:21-22)

Thus, the code agrees with the words of Jesus concerning forgiveness when contrasted with the vengeful words of Cain. Cain "rose up" against Abel his brother and slew him. The blood of Abel called out for vengeance against his brother and upriser, Cain (Gen. 4:8-10), but oppositely, the blood of Jesus calls out for forgiveness for His brother and upriser, Israel. To this the book of Hebrews agrees: "...Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel." (Heb. 12:24)

Moreover, there are 77 names in Luke's genealogy that traces Jesus all the way back to "Adam the son of God"! (Luke 3.)

Christ Comparable to Adam:

As for Adam, in a figurative sense, God "forgave" Adam 'the first time' by covering his nakedness with a slain animal, (Gen. 3:21). This slain animal was the first blood ever shed and is a type of the sacrifice of Christ who hung naked on a cross, and Abel likewise is a type of Christ, whom Cain slew. Figuratively speaking, this is the 'first time' that God forgave mankind and points to ultimate '"second time" when Jesus was lifted up on the cross to die naked so that man might be clothed with His righteousness. Thus, the first forgiveness of Adam pointed to and illustrated the second forgiveness of man when Christ died so that the first forgiveness might be validated. "For without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins", (Heb. 9:22).

"Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them." (Gen. 3:21)

"I will greatly rejoice in Jehovah, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with a garland, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels." (Isa. 61:10)


"I will be lifted up by those who have risen up against me..."

Even the type of death that the Messiah would die is signified by the code. Three out of the six Hebrew words have to do with 'lifting up', plus one more reference to one being laid low (in the 'dust'). Since the word for forgiveness in Hebrew may also mean, "to lift up", therefore the code may read:

"I will lift up those who have risen up against me,
having compassion, lifting up those (low in) the dust a second time!"

Or the code can even read in the passive tense:

"I will be lifted up by those who have risen up against me,
having compassion, lifting up those (low in) the dust a second time!"

Now it happens that the common euphemism used in the Gospels to describe Jesus' death by crucifixion is that of "being lifted up".

"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:14-15; cf., John 12:32-34.)

"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he should die." (John 12:32-33)

This code was written about two thousand years before Christ, and to my knowledge only now discovered in our day 4000 years later! This in itself, I believe, is a sign that God will soon reclaim His people Israel to Himself by turning them from their sins by their acceptance of Jesus (Yeshua) as Messiah. Moreover, the 70th jubilee (i.e., 70 x 7 x 7 years) from when Israel entered the Promised Land occurs within a couple of decades from now.


The entire above commentary on this acrostic code is further substantiated and elaborated on in the enlarged version. For the acrostic, in fact, contains sub-acrostics that in the end form seven "I will" declarations. The following is the same acrostic expanded fully. (We explain this expansion in the next document.)



The Acrostic in Full
 (Three tiered acrostic: Black = tier one; Blue = tier two; Red = tier three.)
See below link for elaboration.

(Cain's line)

"I will select peoples for me out from you (m. or f.)
 --- the one hung low  (or, "impoverished") for the sake of all!

  I will offer up the one thrust down,

 O mother!" 

(Seth's line)

"I will forgive those risen up against me,
 showing compassion by lifting up a second time (or, "forgiving again") those who are of dust. 

I will be offered as a fiery serpent or a moth on fire!"

 I will receive their (offerings) with rejoicing!
 I will look upon them with favor!

 I will forgive! 


The most difficult phrase here is, "I will be offered as a fiery serpent or a moth on fire!" These creatures are symbolic of the curse that lies upon all the earth, --- the serpent is the lowliest creature upon the land and the moth is the lowliest in the air. 

"And Jehovah God said unto the woman, What is this thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And Jehovah God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, cursed art thou above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed: he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." (Gen. 3:13-16)

Moreover, Jesus said: 

"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up; that whosoever believeth may in him have eternal life." (John 3:14-15)

But before we look any further at this full version of the acrostic we will first look at another code found within the meaning of the names of the first three genealogies of our acrostic, but expanded to include the genealogy all the way down to Jesus!

When one chooses a name for their child in our culture the meaning of that name usually has little or no significance to the parent. But in bible days the meaning of a name was very important. Sometimes the bible itself informs the reader what a name means. Such renowned persons as Adam, Cain, Seth, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (and his 12 sons), Perez, Peleg and Jesus all have the meaning of their name explicitly given in the bible. Each of their names tells the individual story of why or how they were born.

Some students of the bible have wondered whether these names (with their collective meanings) might not be strung together in succession to tell some larger story. For if the meaning of these names do indeed tell a story then this would imply that God Himself has arranged these names providentially throughout the ages. This would help prove that the genealogy of Christ is of divine origin in spite of the tacit denials by such popular books as "The Da Vinci Code".

Already there have been attempts to string together the first 10 names in the bible from Adam to Noah. In general, this is what the first 10 names of the bible can read when each name is rendered one after the other in succession.

"A man is appointed, a man of sorrow. The Blessed God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring the grieving rest."

But the meaning of some of these first 10 names remain in doubt. And regrettably, this is true also of the next 10 names from Noah to Abraham. But all is not lost. Fortunately, the next 40 names after that, as recorded in Matthew's genealogy of Abraham to Jesus, are reasonably certain. And the meaning of these latter 40 names support the renderings of the first 20 names.

This is what all 60 names from Adam to Jesus sequentially read.


(The first three lines are the acrostic.)

"I will choose a circumcised people (i.e., Jews), even many peoples for myself (i.e., Gentiles)."

"I will forgive my enemies, having compassion, forgiving those made from the dust a second time." 

("Where will he lead the people of Goshen?")


(The first paragraph is Cain's line.)

"The God-man is born, a teacher of fugitives! The One smitten by God will be a mighty man of God! A river flows, O' offspring of the man born!"


The God-Man is appointed, a mortal man of sorrow is born! The Glory of God shall come down from heaven and teach men that by means of His death He shall comfort those who mourn.

The fame of the stronghold of Babylon, and sorrow, extend their borders like a plant beyond the place of division (at the Tower of Babel). -- But I will make Babylon fade away!

A friend also branches out, snorting with fury!  

A glorious father, the father of a great multitude laughs as he outwits (his enemy). A righteous prince sees God! A mighty one fights! {He joins himself to an assembly, a glorious people whom he rescued, stranger(s) in a strange land, captives delivered by God!"} See note for bracketed portion.

  One who praises the Lord breaks open a way into a safe place that is surrounded by a high wall.

O' my people who belong to the prince, a prophet clothed with strength and who serves (the Lord), is here! Out of love, this beloved one paid the price for peace in order to set the people free, bringing them into a spacious land.

My Father is the Lord, the healer of him whom the Lord judged and then raised up. The Lord has taken hold of me and the Lord is strong! Mighty is the Lord! My strength and help are in the Lord! The Lord is perfect! I took hold of the strength of the Lord and it made me forget my misery. Truly, (I am) the Master Builder whom the Lord God healed, whom the Lord raised up, whom the Lord upholds, did uphold and will uphold! 

I have asked God about the ransomed of the Lord --- those exiled in Babylon. My Father is awesome! God will raise up a helper, the Just One will the Lord raise up! God is my praise! God is the One who helps. May the Gift of Jacob increase in greatness, for God is with us --- the Messiah and Savior of those called out (of Babylon).


Notes: The first paragraph represents the line of Cain that perished in Noah's flood. The godly and ungodly lines to Noah mirror each other as is evident by the similar names used. This striking similarity is the logic behind inserting Cain's list first. However, for arguments sake, because Cain's line merely compliments what the godly line reads anyway, therefore Cain's line can be omitted if the reader objects to its inclusion.

The righteous line of Adam to Noah is listed after Cain's line and continues on through to Jesus and His "Church". The word "Church" is listed as the last name in the genealogy because in a theological sense the Church, which was "born" 50 days after Jesus died, spiritual speaking caps off the genealogy of Jesus.

Viewing the lineage of Jesus as divinely orchestrated culminating in the Church is in contradiction to the popular book, The Da Vinci Code. The book claims that Jesus produced natural offspring rather than only spiritual, whose physical offspring supposedly can be traced to this day!

The meaning-of-names bible code was (providentially?) deciphered May of 2006, which is also when the popular movie "The Da Vinci Code" was playing. Perhaps this is God's answer to the Da Vinci Code?

As an encore to the names-code, the genealogy from Adam to Abraham moreover contain a remarkable first-letter-of-each-name acrostic that reads:

"I will forgive those risen up against me, showing compassion by lifting up a second time those who are of dust. I will receive their (offerings) with rejoicing!"
