Part '2'


 God hath numbered thy kingdom, and brought it to an end!"

(View in flash)

(The original bible code put on net several years ago
 without these notes is found here. How it is deciphered is found here.)


Personal note: If I had my way I would immediately  take all the codes off the Net, for they are a burden, and I do not desire anyone to study codes themselves unless so directed by God. But in the meanwhile, by this fearful sign, may He fulfill His purpose of testifying to the nations His coming day of wrath, which shall come upon all that reject "the banner of the cross"---the message of salvation, which comes by faith in Messiah Jesus (Yeshua).


How did God number Saddam's reign?

On Pentecost, 2000, the picture-code of the hand that wrote on the palace wall was discovered. This happened 126 days after the mene-tekel-peres code began to be deciphered back on Feb. 4, 2000. 

The number "126" is significant because the value of mene, mene, tekel, uparsin as coins (for they were all ancient coins), also add up to 126 shekels. (Their value as money is key to correctly interpreting this code.) Moreover, another 126 days elapsed from the day when President Bush warned Saddam and sons to flee Babylon (Purim, 2003), until the day they were slain, (Tam. 22). Moreover, from Feb. 4, 2000, until their deaths was 1260 days (i.e., 3-years of 360-days) + 3 days, at which time 3-men (Saddam's grandson was but a lad, i.e., 'half-a-man') were slain in a 3-hour gun battle (9:50 am to 1:20 pm), which was 3 months after Iraq/Babylon fell, (April 9, [Nisan 7], 2003). The two bodies were exposed to the whole world for another 3-days, even as the world rejoiced. (Compare these antithetical events with that of the two witnesses of Revelation 11.)

Update: Several years after this article was written, as expected, Saddam was executed by hanging 1260 + 1260 days after the mene bible code began to be deciphered on Feb. 4, 2000. See "Saddam hangs on exact day predicted by Bible Code seven years in advance, detailing both how and when."

Why the repetition of '3'?

The repetition of '3' symbolizes the cutting short of a complete span of seven, (cf. Daniel 9:24-27. "Seven" is the number of 'completion' in the bible, and half-of-seven is also common in the bible). This also agrees with the interpretation given to Daniel: "Peres:" Your kingdom is divided (in half)."

Fall of Saddam. Bible Code Prophecy.And so Saddam's reign ended; it was "cut short." For, rather than lasting 70 full years, instead, it was "cut short" and divided in half, that is, it was cut short to 35 years (and a day)! Jeremiah the prophet declared:

"And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, (i.e., 'Belshazzar', about whom the code initially speaks)," (Jer. 25:12, cf., Daniel 9).

Saddam's younger son Qusay is a type of Belshazzar in that Saddam considered himself as another Nebuchadnezzar thus making Saddam's son another 'Belshazzar' since Belshazzar was the son of Nebuchadnezzar. Saddam's son is therefore a fitting candidate for a modern-day repeat fulfillment of this bible-code prophecy initially about Belshazzar. However, Qusay never made it to sole power, for the regimes' 70-year reign was 'cut short'. The regime began its reign of terror in July (Tammuz 21) of 1968, and ended Tammuz 22 (July 22), 2003, with the death of Saddam's son and would-be successor Qusay. (Interestingly, "1968" is 1260 x 2 years after the first year of the reign of Belshazzar in 553 BC; cf., Daniel 7). As we shall see, all these numbers (and much more) are intrinsic to the numerical aspect of this code because 126 shekels (the value of all four coins) equates to 1260 x 2 gerahs! (There are 20 gerahs to a shekel, Ex. 30:13, Lev. 27:25, etc.) And, 1260 x 2 days is the same as 3 x 2 years, that is, 7 years. 

Other numeric notations will be mentioned later. The numbers, the codes, and the pictures they produce, compose a tri-part language---three witnesses that this is "truly, truly" the hand of God! Recall Daniel's original prophecy:

MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom...
TEKEL; thou art weighed (tested) in the balances...
PERES; thy kingdom is divided... (Daniel 5:26-27).

Hence, the bible codes fitting emphasis throughout on numbering, testing, and dividing. If this 'code' were mere chance phenomena, there would not be this consistent theme woven throughout its lengthy discourse, nor could it predict the future!



The actual code was published two months before the Twin Towers fell and has not been altered since then. The parallels between the code and Saddam and sons are obvious. Also keep in mind that 'mene,' 'tekel,' and 'peres,' were three Babylonian coins. In the code, the "mina' represents the Redeemer, 'Jesus.' The two sons of Saddam together represent their father. Therefore, when the code refers to 'he,' it refers to either Saddam's slain son, Qusay, (who was to be Saddam's successor), or it refers to both sons collectively. (The price put on Saddam's head is worth 25 million---and '25' is half a Hebrew mina; and his two sons together were worth 30-million in reward, and '30' was half a Babylonian mina. Thus, Saddam and both-sons represent a half-mina ["parsin,"] "parsin" can literally mean "two-half [minas]!" Hence, the title of these documents, "Mene, Mene: The Sum of Two Evils".) 

'Tekel' means 'to weigh' (test) or 'pay.' "TEKEL: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting," (Daniel 5:27). Both Saddam and his sons literally kept weight of their servants, and if they were found too heavy, they were punished! Thus, God is 'paying' them pack what they deserve, for Saddam and sons have been found too light!

 A 'hand' in the bible code (of and by itself) causes the pole to be severed exactly in half!Mene tekel Bible Code Prophecy.The full banner/flag picture is at left. The straight line represents the 'pole', whereas the top is the 'flag' with three coins as its insignia. (Flag-top is enlarged on right side.) The actual mene-tekel code is encoded within the bible-text words "mene, mene, tekel, uparsin," which forms this flag-top. The line of code that composes the 'pole' of itself divides the 'pole' at the middle by snapping the 'pole' into two pieces! (You can read more about the 'pole' and how it is formed here.) First we look at what the 'pole' reads before we come to the actual mene-tekel-peres main code (i.e., the flag-top). The pole reads:

"Concerning your beauty, it is being searched out by him. 

{See Daniel 5:18, "O king (Belshazzar), the Most High God granted sovereignty, grandeur, glory, and majesty to Nebachadnezzar you father."}

And on account of its height the Manna, a Lion, and a Mina shall measure it!

And because of my rejection, now he is being rejected!

More than a piece/pole, he cut off; she (i.e., Babylon) was severed in two!  

Wrath is pent up from God against her!

They put God to the test! 

"You (too) ran from God!"

"Flee, O' Thomas, to the banner (of the cross)
---to the Flawless One of God, Flee, O' Thomas!" 

(Thomas remained shut up by God, having fled to the banner.)"

{Rather than commenting on these enigmatic words now, we will proceed to the mene-tekel-code proper, for the mene-code will interpret them for us.}


(See here for the mene-tekel code in its full form,
 without notes, put on the Net 2 years ago.)

{My comments are bracketed in burgundy. The code initially applied to Belshazzar as contrasted with Jesus, his executioner, but it also applies to Saddam and sons, who, in turn, are a sign to all God's enemies. Keep in mind that Iraq is literally ancient Babylon.}


Here, now, is the mene-tekel-code, published 2 years ago.
 Procedures of decipherment are found here.)

Bible Code Prophecy.

"Mene, mene, tekel, uparsin:

The One putting him to death is the one concealing them!"

[That is, 'concealing the words of the code.']




The 5 horizontal "coins". Bible Code Prophecy.The 5 vertical "coins". Bible Code Prophecy.'Count the coins, 
O' you of little worth!'

(They number 30 shekels, or 6-6-6!
And also 1260 x 2 gerahs. And they were besieged 390 and 430 days.)

'I will test them
 with this oracle!'



{As with the hand-code, the above title is taken from the four corners of the code itself, and is a fitting summary to the rest of the code. You, too, my friend, will be tested by what you are about to read! Both your interpretation and application will be tested/weighed.

 The entire code is deciphered by reading around the coins. As a matter of fact, the middle coin (a shekel) reads across, "go around," and crisscrossing it downward reads, "shekel." Thus together it reads, "go around the shekel (to decipher)", which is the clue that unlocks this remarkable code within a code! The word, "go around" also means, "to besiege," and is a play on words, because, Belshazzar, the lowly 'shekel' of the code, was besieged by the Medes and the Persians that very night the hand wrote this code on the wall---the same night in which he was slain! Such double (and even quadruple) plays on words reside throughout this entire code, almost every line!

Mene Tekel Bible Code Prophecy!As said, the circles around the letters represent coins, and the coins are the insignia upon a flag/banner. This is apparent for many reasons, as discussed here. The lighter coins represent Saddam and sons, as it did also Belshazzar. As Belshazzar and his astrologers were tested with the secret message on the wall, "mene, mene, tekel, uparsin," so now the encoded message within this same secret message has come as a warning sign and tester/weigher of the hearts of men. For unless a man's heart is right, he cannot discern the code, just as Belshazzar's astrologers could not. For 'mene-mene-tekel-uparsin' appeared again secretly, the night of the world-wide millennium party on Jan. 1, 2000, just as it did during Belshazzar's party. It came a second time for a sign and prophecy that 'the kingdoms of this world are soon to become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ,' Revelation 11:15.

Dan 12:7-10 " shall be for a time, times, and a half; {i.e., 1260 days}... And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my lord, what shall be the issue of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel; for the words are shut up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but they that are wise shall understand."}

  of this aspect of the 'MENE'-Tekel-Peres Bible Code


We start by quoting the actual surface text (placed in blue)
 from whence the bible code is hidden


(Daniel 5:25-26-28)

"And this is the writing that was inscribed:


This is the interpretation of the thing:

MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and brought it to an end;

TEKEL; thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

PERES; thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.


'Count the coins, 
O' you of little worth!'

Saddam-coin-mene-mene-tekel-peres-bible-code prophecy.

'I will test them
 with this oracle!'


"Truly, truly, this is the banner that heals them! 

Our oracle is a banner (or 'wonder') that brings healing!

{The code begins the prophecy on a solemn double oath. The phrase, "Truly, truly," (or, "Amen, amen;" "Verily verily" in the KJV, ASV) is found 25 times in the book of John, as quoting Jesus. Here are a few examples. (These examples are similar to the message of the code itself since the code likewise refers to Jesus as the manna from Heaven that the grumbling Israelites ate in the wilderness, and as the bronze serpent upon the pole/banner that brought healing to those that before grumbled.) Jesus said:

"Verily, verily, ("Truly, truly") I say unto thee, We speak that which we know, and bear witness of that which we have seen; and ye receive not our 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 3:11-16)

"Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye ate of the loaves, and were filled." (John 6:26)

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth hath eternal life." (John 6:47)

Thus the bible code begins by reading, "Verily, verily, even this is the flag/banner/pole/wonder that brings healing..." That is, it heals the soul of all who look upon Jesus (Yeshua) as Messiah. 

At times, the first-person plural "Our" and "We" is similarly used in the bible when God speaks and is suggestive of the Trinity, though others argue that it simply represents 'the plural of majesty,' or of 'God's heavenly councilors,' i.e., angels. However, the opening phrase literally reads, "Amen! Amen! And the banner... Our oracle..." This three-part opening statement to me implies the Triune God!}


"MENE": ("Mene" can mean 'numbered,' or a coin called a 'mina,' worth 60 shekels.)

"They numbered Me, (the One being rejected!)"

Turn/repent here on account of our oracle! 

We will instruct (you) here!

Because of His faithfulness we will instruct (you) here; (or, "...we will chastise here," cf., Isa. 53:5)

because of the Faithful One and the banner/wonder/cross that heals them.

Our oracle is a banner/wonder/cross that brings healing! (Completes 7x around.)

{The bible makes the prediction that Jesus would be "numbered with the transgressors," and "rejected by men," (Isaiah 53:12). For this reason, God's enemies will be numbered for slaughter! As a matter of fact, they literally numbered Saddam and sons as three high aces in their assessment of them among all the other wanted men.

This line "the One being rejected!" may also read: "Turn here at our oracle (prophecy). This line both means, 'to repent at the oracle,' but amazingly it also means, 'to turn "here" (at this spot) in the oracle'---which is what we must eventually do (on the 7th time around) in order to read the rest of the code! By use of word-plays, the bible code contains internal instructions for decoding---yet without encumbering the message! Recall the three middle letters that told us to "go around" whereby the code is deciphered. The word "go around" also means 'to besiege', which is what Belshazzar was experiencing that very moment! This is also true of the words, "the One encrypting them" (i.e., "encrypting the words"), which can also mean, "the one shutting them up," just as Belshazzar was shut up at that time unable to leave Babylon! Thus, the bible code contains double meanings: the one reading proclaims the actual oracle (prophecy) while the other instructs how the oracle is to be unraveled---yet God uses plays on words to avoid distracting us from the message itself! Surely such a masterful play on words is "truly" the hand of God! This part of the code completes seven full times around the three middle letters that read "Tekel". Thus the code encircles/besieges the middle three-letter word 'tekel' ('shekel') by going around it seven times by utilizing the remaining 12 outer letters. The numeric points to the besiegement of Babylon by the 12 tribes of Israel the same way the 12 tribes of Israel besieged Jericho seven times before it fell. However, all this in turn is illustrative of Christ besieged/encircled on the cross/pole/banner by wicked men, (Ps. 22:12). He is the "Shekel" being weighed in the balances for us, which is indeed what the middle shekel-coin reads when the coin itself is likewise read in a circle! Awesome!

Mene Tekel Bible Code Prophecy!"We will instruct (you) here..." {"Here" is spelt as in Job 38:11.} Where is "here"? "Here" (cf., Deut. 5:31; Ex. 24:12) refers to the very oracle/code itself. And thus "here' indirectly refers to the banner/message of the cross since the code forms the image of the banner of the cross, that is, the image of a flag/banner/pole (Hebrew "Nas") with the emblem of three coins upon the flag/banner! {The coins represent Belshazzar, but they also represent Jesus who replaces Belshazzar as 'King of kings'. Jesus is the besieged "Mina" upon the pole/cross, yet regarded by men as a lowly Shekel --- even a "Half-shekel"! Also see above image of the pole.} 

"We will instruct (you) here..." The word "instruct" has the idea of correction and sometimes chastisement, and is often used in terms of God's covenant-"faithfulness". It is the perfect Hebrew word to use in this context and alludes to a number of biblical passages such as Lev. 26:18, 28; Deut. 8:5; Pro. 1:1-8; and Isa. 53:5. Concerning Isa. 53:5, the code may read, "We will chastise here." That is, the cross/pole is the place where Christ would be chastised for the healing of the people as per the prophecy of Isa. 53:5. "He was pierced for our transgressions... the chastisement that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."}


They put a flawless One to the test---The 'Mina'--- (the very redemption price) of God!
(Click here for alternate reading.)

[They put a flawless One to the test---the 'Mina'---(the very redemption price) of God! Saddam and his wicked sons put Jesus, the flawless Mina of God, to the test in many ways. The code will later inform us that the main reason they stood condemned was that they refused to believe the message of the cross/banner.]

Shout aloud, O 'Mina,' 

for the message will be carefully concealed (encrypted)!" (Click here for alternate reading.)

{This applies to both Saddam and Jesus---but as opposites. First, a look at how it applies to Jesus:

As Redeemer (mina), He hung on the cross and let out a loud cry upon His death, and the veil in the temple was torn in two allowing one to see right into the Most Holy Place in the temple.

"And Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom," (Mat 27:50-51).

The bible code connects this event to the fact that when the veil/seal was removed at His death/resurrection, the mysteries of God were all loosed, (Revelation 5). However, they are nevertheless concealed to man until the day of God's choosing. (See Daniel 9:24-27.) This particular oracle about Christ, for instance, was hidden ("encrypted") within the "mene-mene-tekel-uparsin" words 2500 years until the day He choose to reveal it! That, in itself, is a sign to us that we are in the last days! The book of Hebrews (10:20) tells us that this torn veil symbolizes His flesh, and thus the latter part of the code about 'the mina being painfully torn in half to become a half-mina' bears special meaning. This also helps explain why the code immediately after that says, "Nevertheless, He will blind their eyes." Those that refuse to see, He blinds!

The words, "The message will be carefully encrypted" literally reads, "'It" will be carefully encrypted." The word "encrypted" has the root meaning of, "to plug up" something, as in a hole. The immediate context refers to 'the message' as the thing "plugged up"; however, the subsequent context implies that it is also 'the empty tomb' that is sealed, or, carefully plugged up. It is interesting that 1335 days (Daniel 12:12, cf., Daniel 9:24-27) after the hand-code appeared (Pentecost, 2000), it was announced to the world that Saddam's hiding hole was to be 'carefully plugged up' with cement, (Feb. 3, 2004, traditional anniversary date of Luke 2:21-38. Compare Daniel 12:9-13 with Luke 2:25-30). Then they went and instead "sealed" it secretly the next day with a 300 pound slab of cement. This also makes 1335 days since the hand-code appeared at about 11:30 p.m. Pentecost 2000, and with the 8 hour time-zone difference to our EST, this makes the sealing of the 'tomb' (hole) in Iraq indeed 1335 days! Thus the code reads: "Shout aloud, "It will be carefully plugged up!"'" (i.e., "sealed.")  

Also notice that the bible prophecy of the 1290 and 1335 days of Daniel 12 occurs at "the bank of the (Tigris) river", which is also where Saddam's hole was located! Opposite the Tigris river was his palace (in contrast to his shack), and Daniel 12:5 reads: " stood on this side of the (Tigris) river and the other on the opposite side..." (Daniel 12:5). In the same way, on this side and that of the expanse of heaven resided Jesus' glorious throne in contrast to His lowly manger and tomb. The comparison is particularly compelling when we note that Saddam arose from his pit 1290 days after the anniversary of when Jesus ascended up into the heavens returning back to His throne! (See Daniel 12:11-12.) Clearly, Saddam is a type of Antichrist, who mirrors the true Christ.

 The sealing of the hole seems to signal the closing of this bible code for a season? Its future opening doubtless will portent an important relate

Saddam's hiding holeJesus' tomb guarded by Roman soldiers.As we shall see from the rest of the code, Saddam parallels the death and resurrection of Christ by means of sharp satirical contrasts. All four gospels record that the very first '"message" commanded to be preached was the resurrection of Jesus from his 'sealed' tomb. Also, the very next chapter in the book of Daniel (ch. 6) sees Daniel thrown into the lions den (with the den then 'sealed'); nevertheless, Daniel (in a figure) rises from the dead the next morning and his escape from death proclaimed in all the earth, (Daniel 6:25-27; cf., Daniel 9:24-27). This is a clear type and figure of the proclamation of the good news of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead! At the resurrection of Jesus, both the tomb and the message are unsealed and unstopped. In sharp contrast, however, the military "sealed up" Saddam's 'tomb' (hole) for the expressed purpose of 'stopping up' the spread of Saddam's warped fame! (See Matt. 27:62-66---both the tomb of Jesus, and the hole of Saddam were heavily guarded by soldiers, and sealed to stop the spread of their fame---the one in Jerusalem and the other in Babylon (Iraq); (cf., Revelation 17-18 with 21-22.) This is merely the first in a long series of biting contrasts prophesied to occur between that of Saddam (and sons) with the Lord Jesus Christ. Moreover, keep in mind that, amazingly, this code initially applied to Daniel and Belshazzar, with these two likewise held in sharp contrast! This contrast is especially evident immediately after Daniel decodes the writing on the wall; i.e., Daniel is exalted while Belshazzar is slain, (Daniel 5:29,30). 

This line of code may also read as follows:

bible code prophecy matrix---3 x 5Upon His pole (cross),

the Mighty One who was numbered cried aloud: "It is finished!" 
(or "...the Mina of God cried out!")

The mighty Mina will be hidden away! 
(And/or "'God's numbering' or 'manna' or 'prophecy' will be hidden away!")


(Or may read: "They put a flawless One to the test---The Mina of God!

"Shout aloud, O' Mina! for it [the prophecy] will be kept secret!"

Or, "They put a flawless one to the test!

Mene: a Mighty one cried out, "Let (the message) be carefully concealed!")


This reading is reinforced by what the prophecy says next:

 "(He cried out; having been pierced He groaned.)...You will most certainly be weighed/paid, O' enemy! For He is risen and is taking revenge!...He will be appointed to a fear-inspiring right-hand! Rise up! You shall cast him down, and his rebellion!" etc... }
