'It was revealed to Daniel that the prophecies concerning the last times should be closed up and sealed until the time of the end: But then the wise should understand, and knowledge should be increased (Daniel 12:4,9,10). And therefore the longer they have continued in obscurity, the more hopes there are that the time is at hand in which they are to be made manifest.
If they are never to be understood, to what end did God reveal them?
Certainly he did it for the edification of the church. And if so then it is certain that the church shall at length attain to the understandings thereof. I mean not all that call themselves Christians, but a remnant, a few scattered persons which God hath chosen, such as without being led by interest, education, or human authorities, can set themselves sincerely and earnestly to search after truth. For Daniel hath said that the wise shall understand, so he said also that none of the wicked shall understand' - Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
For Philo (20BC to 54AD), a bible passage was like a human being. It had a body (i.e. a literal meaning) and a soul (an allegorical meaning). He accepted the literal meaning of many scriptures (e.g. the Mosaic Law) but he also believed that only the allegorical method could reveal the true inner meaning that God had encoded in them. Further Philo believed that hidden meaning lay behind numbers and names [see U271c]. More ingeniously, he also found it by playing with the many possible meanings of the same word and by regrouping the words of a biblical passage - (Introduction to Biblical Interpretation: Klein Blomberg and Hubbard)
Origen, the early church father (185 - 254 AD) contended that God had inspired the original biblical writer to incorporate the allegorical meaning into his writing. thus what Origen considered the highest meaning of scripture, its deaper spiritual truth, was already implicit in scripture, not something invented by the interpreter. In fact he believed that every scripture had a 3 fold meaning (literal, moral and allegorical) (Klein, Blomberg and Hubbard).
Augustine of Denmark (13th century AD) penned the following verse in Latin which describes the 4 possible senses of scripture. It was popular amongst latin speaking monks in Medieval times...
The Letter speaks of deeds
Allegory to the faith
The Moral how to act
Anagogy (prophetic meaning) of our destiny (Catechism of the Catholic Church).

Everything that Jesus said to the crowds was in an illustration. Indeed without an illustration he would not speak to the crowds:
So with many illustrations of that sort he would speak the
word to them, as far as they were able to listen.
34 Indeed, without an illustration he would not speak to them, but privately to his disciples he would explain all things (Mark 4).
So Jesus decoded his symbolic parables for his disciples only, not for the public at large. By speaking symbolically, those who did not want to believe that he was God’s son, could write off his speech as meaningless ramblings about farm animals and horticulture. They would therefore never get to know God’s plans for men. They would therefore never be in a position to frustrate them. For the ones who do not want to believe in God, are God’s and mankind’s and their own enemies. For we men and women are designed in such a way that our beliefs betray our true motivations. After 911, 89% of Pakistani Muslims believed that Muslims were not responsible for the Twin Towers Tragedy. This design feature of mankind is not unique to Pakistanis. Most of us believe what we want to believe rather than the truth. For men, and even more so women, much prefer a convenient lie to an inconvenient truth.
So those of us who do not believe in God, do not want to believe in him because they do not want God to exist. They do not want him to exist, because if he does exist then they fear that they will have to serve him and obey him, rather than serving and obeying their own desires. They do not know that God is a kinder master to them than their own desires are. Dear reader, do not make this mistake. God gave you your desires to enjoy them whilst controlling them! He did not give you them to replace him!
Even if all of your experience of people who have ever had power over you is bad, even if everyone of them has abused you, and even if everyone you have ever loved has abused you, there is yet in existence a God who behaves just as his son did whilst he was on earth. He does not abuse his power, and does not abuse your love. His name is Jehovah, it is he who is the Father of Jesus. But he does allow Satan to abuse you, your love, his power and anything else he gets his hands on. For Jesus was described by Paul with reference to God as:
3 He is the reflection of [his] glory and the exact representation of his very being (Hebrews 1).
These people who do not believe are, in the great finesse of our God, unwittingly, their own enemies. Because God is their friend and means of life and salvation. Without him they have no future. They are choosing not to believe in their own future.
But they are free to choose such a course if they wish, and most people do so choose. So it is because mankind has one main enemy, a lying murderer, Satan, and it is because this fraud has many unwitting followers, that God's book, the bible is written in a code. Satan has been trying to persuade God to wipe out the whole human race for nearly 6,000 years in order to justify his murderous act on Eve. He is trying to cheat us out of our inheritance, which is to be ageless humans on earth in the Kingdom of God after Armageddon, and to be angels in heaven and eventually to be God's ourselves, just like our Father. Beloved reader, do not be fooled by your physical weakness, the family you come from is a family of Gods, and like begets like. But it is because we are always at war in this system that coded messages are used. We are at war even when the world is at peace:
23 But I behold in my members another law warring against the law of my mind and leading me captive to sin's law that is in my members (Romans 7).
Our mind is at war with our body, as regards sin. God has created us this way to teach us about sin.
In the Second World War, the Germans and the British both used codes. The British cracked the German code using the enigma computer in Bletchley (according to the movies this was as a result of an American submarine crew which stole a German code machine from a U boat). There is a marvelous and tragic story of the great wisdom of Winston Churchill in relation to this. The British decoded a German message that they were going to completely carpet bomb the city of Coventry on a certain day and destroy it. Winston then had to decide whether to save the people of Coventry, by evacuating them or not. The problem with evacuating Coventry was that the Germans had spies, and would have found out that Coventry was evacuated and then deduced that the British had cracked their code.
Churchill therefore sacrificed the whole town of Coventry, in order to keep this secret undiscovered. Such was the value that he attached to knowing the Enigma Code. He knew that if he confined his actions resulting from the breaking of the Code to ones which would not reveal to the Germans that the British had cracked it, then he could continue to know their entire strategy possibly right to the end of the war! Such knowledge was of greater value to Britain than Coventry. Greater value in terms of saving lives (though not those of the citizens of Coventry) and in terms of shortening and winning the war, which amounted to the same thing.
Likewise God has encoded information in the bible for the purpose of saving our lives, it is for our protection. For God is not going to lose in this battle that he is having with his rebellious son Satan. But we are all caught up in this war. For war is the inevitable result of the tolerance of evil or of bad. History shows us this.
God would win this war whether the bible was in a code or not and whether Jesus just blurted out the whole plan for salvation verbatim or not. But God wishes to teach us good from bad with the minimum possible loss of life and damage to our souls. The degree of damage and death that we do experience as a race is the measure of the difficulty he has in teaching us and we have in learning this lesson. We would be the losers if this book was not in a code.
This code needs to be appealing to God’s friends and revolting to his enemies. Then his friends will be attracted to it and hopefully spend enough time looking at it to find out that it is in a code and then will be sufficiently motivated to crack the code and then pass on the information only to his friends. Whilst his enemies on the other hand will find the whole thing so revolting and distasteful that they will not study the information hard enough to even realise that it is in a code. Furthermore when they are told that it is in a code, they still will not believe it!
Well, since the distinction between God’s friends and enemies is their love or hate for him and his friends, it is obvious that the information that he sends out should be all about him and his friends, because this is the only sort of information which will have a different effect on the two groups. Also this information should look innocuous and intensely boring to his enemies, and be full of praises upon praises of him to drive off the enemies and pull in the friends.
God has done this with the bible. All of the praise in the bible is not because God has a big ego and needs a whole lot of praise which he effectively wrote himself!!! It is to sort the sheep from the goats. He has given to everybody a book about his past dealings with his friends, who lived thousands of years ago, who had many camels and lived in tents and had children and basically did the sort of things that everybody else did back then. This is of no great consequence to the enemies of God. It just looks like an out of date soap opera, written by someone who they do not like. Of what interest to a 20th or 21st century currency speculator is it that Esau lost his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of soup, or that he crossed the Jabbok with 200 female sheep and 20 rams? This sort of information is hardly the sort of thing that would come up on his Reuters screen.
But hidden in amongst all of the banal, mundane and everyday tribulations of these friends of God, is the whole of his military plan for saving mankind from sin and death and retaking the earth from Satan. The plan for men to regain the birthright that Adam lost, namely everlasting human and angelic life.
22 He is revealing the deep things and the concealed things, knowing what is in the darkness; and with him the light does dwell (Daniel 2).
Logically, if we examine God's Modus Operandi with men, we see that he hides from us. We see that he hides what he is doing from us. Nobody has seen him, and who really knows what he is up to? So given that he inspired the bible:
16 All Scripture is inspired of God (2 Timothy 3).
It should be no great surprise to anyone that the bible too contains hidden information, since it was ghost written by a hidden God. In other words it is written in a code. This is not a new idea. Sir Isaac Newton believed the same to be true, but was unable to discover the code. He could see gravity with his mind, and he knew God well enough to see that the bible was in a code, but he could not himself decode it. He died trying to work out the date of Armageddon. He failed not because he lacked faith and not because he lacked wisdom or intellectual capability, for he had them all in abundance. He failed because it was not God's time in the late 17th and early 18th centuries for this to take place. So instead the true God rewarded one of the most spiritual men of the last millennium with the code of his physical universe. For a spiritual man sees things with his mind, with his power of reason, things that he cannot detect with his senses. It is this capability that separates us from the animals. It is this capability that the reader will need to sharpen as he or she reads this website/book.
Here are two typical sections of the Old Testament:
11 Polish the arrows. Fill the circular shields, Oh men.
Jehovah has aroused the spirit of the kings of the Medes, because it is against
Babylon that his idea is, in order to bring her to ruin. For it is the vengeance
of Jehovah, the vengeance for his temple.
12 Against the walls of Babylon lift up a signal. Make strong the watch. Post the watchmen. Make ready those lying in Ambush. For Jehovah has both formed the idea and will certainly do what he has spoken against the inhabitants of Babylon.
13 Oh woman residing on abounding waters, abundant in treasures, your end has come, the measure of your profit making (Jeremiah 51).
13 For I will tread as my
[bow] Judah. The bow I will fill with
Ephraim, and I will awaken your sons, Oh Zion, against your sons, Oh Greece, and I will make
you as the sword of a mighty man.
14 And over them Jehovah himself will be seen, and his arrow will certainly go forth just like lightning. And on the horn the Sovereign Lord Jehovah himself will blow, and he will certainly go with the windstorms of the south (Zechariah 9).
These passages are written in colourful, poetic, symbolic language. Here is a typical section of the New Testament:
4 Therefore we were buried with him through our baptism into
his death, in order that, just as Christ was raised up from the dead through the
glory of the father, we should likewise walk in a newness of life.
5 For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we shall also be [united with him in the likeness] of his resurrection (Romans 6).
This passage is written in symbolic, logically contorted language. Most people who read the bible, believe that the reason it is hard to understand is that 2,000 years ago people wrote and spoke in this complicated symbolic or logically contorted way. But the truth is that they did not. Here is a typical passage from Josephus' book on the history of the Jews. He was a Jewish general born ten or twenty years after Jesus:
But as for the richer sort, it proved all one to them whether they stayed in the city or attempted to get out of it, for they were equally destroyed in both cases. For every such person was put to death under this pretense, that they were going to desert - but in reality that the robbers might get what they had. The madness of the seditious did also increase together with their famine, and both those miseries were every day inflamed more and more. For there was no corn which anywhere appeared publicly, but the robbers came running into, and searched men’s private houses. And then if they found any, they tormented them, because they had denied they had any. And if they found none, they tormented them worse, because they supposed they had more carefully concealed it. The indication they made use of whether they had any or not, was taken from the bodies of these miserable wretches. Which, if they were in good case, they supposed were in no want at all of food. But if they were wasted away, they walked off without searching any farther.
As you can see, it reads just like a modern History book. Likewise if one reads Latin or Greek historical works from the same period (which are mainly about wars) they read just like a history book might read today. Another good example are the books of I and II Maccabees. These describe the plight of the Jews starting from around 170 BC. They just read like normal history books. But the bible is written in a different way to any other book of its time or of any time. Even in the literal meaning of the book, it is hard to deduce precisely what is being said. One needs to think hard, one needs to think logically and think in abstract symbolic terms, just to understand the literal meaning. In other words even the literal meaning is somewhat coded. But there is another reason why this book is written so strangely, and it is that the bible is written in a symbolic, numeric and cryptic code. It is in fact a 4 dimensional book including the literal meaning. This is why sections of it are very strangely written. It is because there is more to this book than the literal meaning. The accounts have to work in the symbolically coded and numerically coded meanings too, which effects the way in which they are written literally. Basically the literal accounts look a bit weird because the words also form symbolic accounts.
Here are 6 further reasons that we can see to suppose that the bible is written in a code:
Why would such a clever God write such a stupid book?
Spirituality is defined as seeing with the mind things
which are undetectable to the senses. The bible is unarguably a spiritual
book from God. It is therefore written in a spiritual way. So it's written
in such a way that its true meaning is not visible with the eye but is
detectable only with the power of reason, the eyes of the mind. The literal
meaning is clearly visible with the eye. It therefore has a further meaning
which is invisible and is not the literal meaning. So this further meaning
is a coded meaning. It is written in a spiritual code, which is a visible
vehicle for an invisible meaning.
Every word that Jesus spoke publicly was symbolic:
The bible itself says that it is written in a code!
Paul describes one particular account in Genesis 16 as
being a symbolic drama.
Matthew 2:15 shows that Hosea 11:1 is in a code and a large number of old testament passages which
are quoted in the new testament are
given a greater meaning in that quote -see U281
through to U294.
The book of Revelation had a first meaning which applied in John's day, actually to the state harlotry of the first true Christian church which was the genesis of the Roman Catholic church. And it has a second meaning which applies to the end times. So it is plainly a book with two meanings for if not then why give it to John 1900 years ago? The second meaning is the coded meaning, which is simply a further symbolic fulfilment - see U151.
We now investigate each of the first 5 in more detail.
'God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.' -Voltaire
We are looking at the whole book as being effectively written by one person, because Paul tells us that it was:
16 All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness (2 Timothy 3).
And Peter tells us:
21 For prophecy was at no time brought by man's will, but men spoke from God as they were borne along by holy spirit (2 Peter 1).
If you truly believe that God, whilst not being the physical author of the book, has inspired every bible writer to express his story in the writer’s own literary style, and in his own phraseology, even in the way he wanted to say it but in God’s words. Then given this, there is a question that is begging to be asked, and it is this:
How could the creator of the perfect universe, which is a gigantic and inordinately intricate example of hyper intelligence, perfection and complete understanding wisdom and control, write or inspire to be written such a daft book?
Or: Why would such a clever guy write such a stupid book?
How can the true God, the grand creator of the great works that Newton and Einstein could barely scratch into the surface of be an order of magnitude worse than Steven Spielberg when it comes to telling a story?
The reader might think that asking this question is an insult to God, or even a blasphemy. We would argue that not asking this question is the real insult, an insult that all mankind has been repeating every day for the past 2000 years. Because by not asking this question you are saying that you would expect God to inspire such a badly written book (in the literal meaning). You are saying that you are not surprised that he has written such a book. Which is saying that you do not think he is capable of telling a story properly. Whereas the more logical and more respectful explanation for the peculiar way in which the bible is written, is that just as Newton and Einstein knew that they were only scratching at the surface of the beauty and perfection of God’s universe, so the seeker of bible truth knows that he is only scratching at the surface of the beauty and perfection of God’s holy book. And this surface is the literal meaning of the book.
For the bible in the literal meaning, the surface itself, is written in an ambiguous, repetitive manner and is full of absolutely crucial omissions, and laden with really unnecessary and trivial detail.
One has to ask rhetorically:
Is God unable to properly focus on the key points in bible stories?
Is he the first person to write a history book with none of the important dates in it?
Why does he keep repeating himself in almost every account?
Does a person who can create hundreds of languages from nothing in one instant of time and simultaneously teach them to every living human in that very instant as described in the account of Babel in Genesis11:
Now all the earth continued to be of one language and of one
set of words.…
5 And Jehovah proceeded to go down to see the city and the tower that the sons of men had built.
6 After that Jehovah said: Look! They are one people and there is one language for them all, and this is what they start to do. Why, now there is nothing that they may have in mind to do that will be unattainable for them.
7 Come now! Let us go down and there confuse their language that they may not listen to one another's language.
8 Accordingly Jehovah scattered them from there over all the surface of the earth, and they gradually left off building the city.
9 That is why its name was called Babel, because there Jehovah had confused the language of all the earth, and Jehovah had scattered them from there over all the surface of the earth (Genesis 11).
Does this person have a problem in telling a simple story in just one language when he has all the time in the world to tell it?
Consider please the following masterpieces:
12 However, they found out of the inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead four hundred girls, virgins, that had not had intercourse with a man by lying with a male (Judges 21).
One wonders how else they could lose their virginity?
1 Now Joshua was old, being advanced in years. So Jehovah said to him: You yourself have grown old and have advanced in years (Joshua 13).
What an astute observation!
25 They stoned them with stones!! (Joshua 7)
8 Abraham's life that he lived!! (Genesis 25) Well what else could he have done with it?
8 Then Abraham expired and died! (Genesis 25)
49 The alien resident who is residing as an Alien?? (Exodus 12)
Why in Jeremiah chapter 41 is Ishmael the son of Nethaniah the son of Elishama, described as: Ishmael the son of Nethaniah 11 times and as plain old Ishmael 6 times in the same account, when there is no other Ishmael in the account? Why does the holy spirit have to tell us the same thing 11 times in one chapter of the bible? Why did mankind have to carry all this unnecessary repetitive information around for 2500 years? How could the God of recycling whose creation, nature, wastes absolutely nothing on this planet, waste all those holy words? Something is not right here!
There are four accounts in Matthew 14, Mark 6, Luke 9 & John 6 of the feeding of the 5,000. Why? Why was this particular account repeated 4 times, when the account of the man who had been lame for 38 years at the pool in Bethzatha in John 5 to whom Jesus said:
8 Get up, pick up your bed and walk (John 5).
is only mentioned once in the holy book? How can a perfect God be so inconsistent?
4 The Rock, perfect is his activity, For all his ways are justice (Deuteronomy 32).
How about this one:
In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam the king of Israel,
Azariah the son of Amaziah the king of Judah became king.
2 Sixteen years old he happened to be when he began to reign, and for fifty-two years he reigned in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem (2 Kings 15).
Great, so we get to know his mother’s name! But there was not a man alive for a long time until 1999 who knew when the 27th year of Jeroboam II actually was. It is extremely difficult to work this out from the bible. But we have done it (we think) and it’s 816 BC - see , . It would have been so much more useful if the holy spirit had said: This was 181 years after Solomon died. Or better still: This was 697 years after the Jews left Egypt. Or better still: This being 3177 years after Adam sinned! Instead we get to know his mum’s name!
In this vein the bible tells us that a Philistine character called Ishbi-benob had a spear that weighed 300 shekels of copper (2 Samuel 21:16). Well, How fascinating! But it fails to tell us when Jesus was born! or what year he died in! Most people do not know this even today. But all literate mankind knows that Ishbi-benob's spear weighed 300 shekels of copper. What kind of a God could get his priorities so wrong? Who cares about the weight of this trogladite's spear? The dates of Jesus' birth and his death are absolutely crucial to any understanding of God's plan for mankind. The weight of this chap’s spear clearly is not (not in the literal meaning at least!)
To sum it up, after every chapter of the bible there should be a comment in bold red ink saying: Remember the author is not thick!
In section  which reconciles the millions of years of human fossils with the creation account in Genesis, see - Millions of years of human fossils reconciled with Genesis, we discover that God introduced himself to mankind through Adam and Eve once Homo sapiens had developed, or dare we say evolved? to the point where he had become 'spiritual'. By this we mean that he could deduce with his powers of reason the existence of things which he could not detect with his physical sensory powers. By this we mean that he became able to entertain a logical train of thought, a multi stage thought process. A good example of this is gravity. Isaac Newton 'saw' gravity with his mind, having first 'decoded' God's physical laws of motion. But the ability that modern man has to do what Newton did, was the trigger for God to introduce himself to us.
The reason that God did not introduce himself to us before we had developed spirituality, was that he did not want to introduce himself to us physically. He wanted to introduce himself to us spiritually, because firstly he wanted us all to retain the option of not seeing him if that was our desire, and secondly, he wished only to be seen by those who had a sufficiently great desire to see him that they were prepared to make the effort to use their powers of reason to deduce his existence with their mind from the physical clues which he had prepared for them. Hence Jesus said:
8 Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God (Matthew 5).
Those who are pure in heart, want to know the truth about their origins, as a matter of gratitude to a humble God. Those who pursue the truth regardless of any fears or misconceptions they may hold that such knowledge might prove detrimental to their relationship with their partner of their peers or their business colleagues. These ones, since their heart will not, out of fear, prevent them from searching with their mind, will find the truth. And the truth is that there is a God who created us, and created the current playpen in which we reside.
In the physical universe one can quite clearly see the character of God, the creator. He is perfect, he wastes nothing but recycles it all, he is incredibly hard working, he is very generous, he is kind, he loves us. But one cannot see God himself physically, one can only deduce what he might be like from what one can see of his works. The game which God is asking us to play is rather like trying to deduce the Character of Mozart from his sonata's or Van Gough from his paintings. Likewise we can deduce the character of Satan from the activities of Hitler or from a Pornographic Magazine proprietor who frustrates all of mankind with images of women which can be seen but not touched whilst he himself has half a dozen of these very women which he both sees and touches (we wish).
Now God's book, the bible, is his training manual, his instruction leaflet, his users guide, his online help button for mankind. It was created by the same God who created the universe and therefore is manufactured using the same Modus Operandi. It is therefore a spiritual book. So one will likewise have to use one's powers of reason to see God even through his book. If we really want to know him we will have to look beneath the literal surface meaning of the book. It has a hidden meaning, discernable by the power of reason, a meaning that is not literally stated. So it is written in a code.
Make no mistake, Jesus only spoke publicly (or to the crowds) in illustrations. His speaking like this was itself an illustration that the truth is not what you see on the surface:33 So with many illustrations of that sort he would speak the word to them, as far as they were able to listen.
But Jesus is called the word by John in the famous scripture:
1In beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was [a] god (John 1).
3 And he is arrayed with an outer garment sprinkled with blood, and the name he is called is The Word of God (Revelation 19).
But the word of God is the bible:
6 And so you have made the word of God invalid because of your tradition (Matthew 15).
17 Also, accept the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, that is, God's word (Ephesians 6).
But the word of God is Jesus:
1 On an occasion when the crowd was pressing close upon him and listening to the word of God, he was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret (Luke 5).
Jesus wasn’t quoting scriptures at them, he was speaking in illustrations as he always did, so here the word of God meant Jesus. So Jesus is the word of God which is the bible. So Jesus ‘is’ the bible. This identification is meant in the sense that God was the author, Jesus was the editor/publisher, and the writers were the journalists. As regards God’s son:
3 All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence (John 1).
So in particular the bible came into existence through him. Actually no, everything physical before Adam's sin came into existence through Satan, who was the firstborn son of God. But Michael, who is Jesus, became God's firstborn earning this right from his sacrifice as an angel - see . But now the reader will see why Michael was called the word. Because Satan lost his firstborn right (for God to act exclusively through him as described in John 1:3), when he killed Adam. The right was then no one's until Jesus died. But Jesus got the firstborn right (of God acting exclusively through him) as regards the writing of the bible as a result of his promising to make the sacrifice which he made on Friday April 1, 33 AD. So he became 'the word', due to his having this right. So every chapter of the bible, every verse of the bible, every word of the bible came into existence through him. And whether Jesus was speaking to the crowds or writing for the crowds through the prophets, he used the same illustrative modus operandi, he communicated symbolically.
The word of God is an example of a word or phrase in the bible which has two different literal meanings. Another such word is presence, which in the bible can mean either the presence of the Christ or the manifestation of the Christ during a presence. The concept of one word or phrase having two literal meanings depending on the context is unusual to English speaking people. We have a language which eliminates such ambiguities by using a larger vocabulary. But the Hebrew language often has one root word with several different meanings dependent on the context.
John calls Jesus the word of life, and the life and the everlasting life in the first verse of his first letter:
That which was from [the] beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have viewed attentively and our hands felt, concerning the word of life.
Yes, the life was made manifest, and we have seen and are bearing witness and reporting to you the everlasting life which was with the Father and was made manifest to us (1 John 1:1,2).
But what is the word of life if it is not the word of God, the bible? For Jesus said to Satan quoting Moses:
But in reply he said: It is written: Man must live, not on bread alone, but on every utterance coming forth through Jehovah's mouth (Matthew 4:4).
So he humbled you and let you go hungry and fed you with the manna, which neither you had known nor your fathers had known; in order to make you know that not by bread alone does man live but by every expression of Jehovah's mouth does man live (Deuteronomy 8:3).
These utterances from God’s mouth are the words of life. And all of such are in the bible. And yet Jesus is called by the same name! This is not a coincidence, it is because he is the one mediator between God and men:
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).
He was the angel that gave the law to Moses. He was the angel in the burning thornbush as Stephen and Paul disclosed:
You who received the Law as transmitted by angels but have not kept it (Acts 7:53).
Why, then, the Law? It was added to make transgressions manifest, until the seed should arrive to whom the promise had been made; and it was transmitted through angels by the hand of a mediator (Galatians 3:19).
So God inspired men to write the bible through Jesus. It was Jesus, who existed as the angel Michael before he entered the son of Joseph & Mary at his baptism, who put the words into the mouths of the prophets, all the bible writers for the scripture says:
All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence (John 1:3).
So in particular the bible came into existence through him. Every chapter of the bible, every verse of the bible every word of the bible came into existence through him. So Jesus is the word of God, the word of life, and the bible is the word of God and the word of life.
What all of this means is that since Jesus, when he was a human, spoke entirely in illustrations, in parables. And since Jesus, in his pre - human existence, as the angel Michael, who was called the word, himself transmitted the words of the bible to the bible writers, then we have no reason to suppose that the words he transmitted as an angel to the bible writers were any less symbolic, any less illustrative, any less coded, than the words he directly transmitted with his mouth as a human. Because Jesus like God is consistent in his approach to men. In other words, the whole book is a series of illustrations or parables. For an illustration is a symbolic code. Even the account of David & Goliath for example. The parables of Jesus are examples explaining the structure of the whole book.
What is more, Jesus has shown us directly how to interpret his parables, namely by constructing a symbolic look up table:
Then after dismissing the crowds he went into the house. And his disciples came to him and said: Explain to us the illustration of the weeds in the field.
In response he said:
The sower of the fine seed is the Son of man;
The field is the world
as for the fine seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; but the weeds are the sons of the wicked one,
and the enemy that sowed them is the Devil.
The harvest is a conclusion of a system of things
and the reapers are angels.
Therefore, just as the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be in the conclusion of the system of things (Matthew 13:36-40).
In the case of the bible book of Revelation, we are told directly how it was given to John:
A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place. And he sent forth his angel and presented [it] in signs through him to his slave John (Revelation 1:1).
So Jesus, the mediator, gave it to an angel who presented it symbolically to John. But this is the same process that Stephen and Paul have disclosed was used to transmit the law to us. The law really means the first five books. So the right question to ask now is:
Did Jesus have some different process that he used for all the other books of the bible?
The answer to this question is no. He is not inconsistent, he wasn’t developing processes as he went along like we humans do. He was acting on behalf of God who knows everything before he starts:
Remember the first things of a long time ago, that I am the Divine One and there is no other God, nor anyone like me; the One telling from the beginning the finale, and from long ago the things that have not been done; the One saying: My own counsel will stand, and everything that is my delight I shall do (Isaiah 46:9,10).
So not just Revelation but the whole book is presented in signs through Jesus the mediator and through his angel, it is all symbolic, it is all in a symbolic code! To sum it all up: God is the publisher of the bible, Jesus is the editor, and the bible writers are the journalists. Although the editing that Jesus did was in real time.
Solomon said:2 The Glory of God is the keeping of a matter secret, and the glory of kings is the searching through a matter (Proverbs 25). 4 If you keep seeking for it as for silver, and as for hid treasures you keep searching for it,
So this knowledge is hidden. And it is hidden in the bible, for Paul says of Jesus:3 Carefully concealed in him are all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge (Colossians 2).
Well, these treasures are not stuffed up his shirt or down his trousers, although in a sense, they are in his body, which is his church. Basically they are hidden in the information we have on him. This information is the bible. For as we have seen above, Jesus is the word of God, which is also 'the bible'. Paul describes how it is hidden and revealed:7 But we speak God's wisdom in a sacred secret, the hidden wisdom, which God foreordained before the systems of things for our glory (1 Corinthians 2).
10 For it is to us God has revealed them through his spirit, for the spirit searches into all things, even the deep things of God (1 Corinthians 2).
So again we see that wisdom is hidden in this book, concealed or coded. For a code is hidden written information. This is why Jesus says:2 There is nothing carefully concealed that will not be revealed, and secret that will not become known (Luke 12). 7 Keep on asking, and it will be given you; keep on seeking, and you will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to you (Matthew 7).
And really you do not have to look that far. But you do have to look, yourself! For God said to Adam:
19 In the sweat of your face you will eat bread (Genesis 3)
And Jesus said to Satan:4 But in reply he said: It is written, 'Man must live, not on bread alone, but on every utterance coming forth through God's mouth' (Matthew 4)
Gabriel said to Daniel:4 And as for you, O Daniel, make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of [the] end. Many will rove about, and the [true] knowledge will become abundant (Daniel 12).
We are now in this time, this book/website is the proof, see - Daniel 8, Daniel 12. Daniel said to Nebuchadnezzar:28 However, there exists a God in the heavens who is a Revealer of secrets, and he has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what is to occur in the final part of the days (Daniel 2).
And not only to him! But also to Jesus, who opened up the minds of his disciples:45 Then he opened up their minds fully to grasp the meaning of the Scriptures (Luke 24).
It is quite a task.25 The woman said to him: I know that Messiah is coming, who is called Christ. Whenever that one arrives, he will declare all things to us openly.
So the scriptures do not declare things openly, but the Christ opened them up. So the scriptures are coded.
Jesus opened up the scriptures to their minds.
There is a holy code for the holy scriptures, and there is a bible within the bible!
22 For example, it is written that Abraham acquired two sons,
one by the servant girl and one by the free woman;
23 but the one by the servant girl was actually born in the manner of flesh, the other by the free woman through a promise.
24 These things stand as a symbolic drama; for these [women] mean two covenants, the one from Mount Sinai, which brings forth children for slavery, and which is Hagar.
25 Now this Hagar means Sinai, a mountain in Arabia, and she corresponds with the Jerusalem today, for she is in slavery with her children.
26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother (Galatians 4).
Hagar stood for the Law covenant mediated by Moses and Sarah for the new covenant mediated by Jesus, described as Paul’s mother. But what is so special about this particular account in Genesis? Is it the only one to be a symbolic drama? And what is so special about Genesis in the old testament. Might there not be some symbolic dramas in Exodus? In fact, we know that the bible is a consistent book having but one ghost writer - if the reader will pardon the metaphor! So any element of the bible code that we find to be true for one account is therefore true in every account. We call this the Consistency Principle of the code. So the whole book stands as one giant symbolic drama.
22 All this actually came
about for that to be fulfilled which was spoken by Jehovah through his prophet,
23 Look! The virgin will become pregnant and will give birth to a son, and they will call his name Immanuel, which means, when translated, With Us Is God (Matthew 1).
14 Therefore Jehovah himself will give you
men [of the house of David] a sign:
Look! The maiden herself will actually become pregnant, and she is giving
birth to a son, and she will certainly call his name Immanuel.
1 And Jehovah proceeded to say to me: Take for yourself a large tablet and write upon it with the stylus of mortal man, 'Maher-shalal-hash-baz.' [written with the stylus of mortal man, so name due to water baptism not spirit baptism, name given before conception but not name called before conception]
2 And let me have attestation for myself by faithful witnesses, Uriah the priest and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.
3 Then I went near to the prophetess, and she came to be pregnant and in time gave birth to a son. Jehovah now said to me: Call his name Maher-shalal-hash-baz,
4 for before the boy will know how to call out, 'My father!' and 'My mother!' one will carry away the resources of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria before the king of Assyria.
5 And Jehovah proceeded to speak yet further to me, saying:
6 For the reason that this people has rejected the waters of the Shiloah that are going gently, and there is exultation over Rezin and the son of Remaliah;
7 even therefore, look! Jehovah is bringing up against them the mighty and the many waters of the River, the king of Assyria and all his glory. And he will certainly come up over all his streambeds and go over all his banks
8 and move on through Judah. He will actually flood and pass over. Up to the neck he will reach. And the outspreading of his wings must occur to fill the breadth of your land, Oh Immanuel!
So Isaiah went near to the prophetess, made her pregnant, and she had a son called both Mahershalalhashbaz (meaning quickly to the plunder) and Immanuel (meaning with us is God). But Matthew tells us that Jesus Christ was a further fulfilment of Isaiah 7 and 8. So these two chapters are written in a prophetic code. They tell a true story of Isaiah sleeping with a virgin and her having a son at the first attempt, so that the virgin became pregnant. But they also tell a further story of a future immaculate conception. The second fulfilment uses a different linguistically possible meaning of the prophecy that a virgin will become pregnant, by having her conceive whilst remaining a virgin! Certainly that is more miraculous, although understandable today with fertility clinics! Btu the point we are making is not that Isaiah 7 had a miraculous further meaning, but just that it had a further meaning and so is written in a code. Then, since Matthew tells us that Isaiah 7 and 8 have a greater meaning, the holy spirit is begging us to ask the question: What is so special about Isaiah 7 and 8? Does Isaiah 9 have a greater meaning for example?
6. Abraham, the first to perform
circumcision, was looking ahead in the Spirit to Jesus when he circumcised. For
he received the firm teachings of the three letters.
7. For it says, “Abraham circumcised eighteen and three hundred men from his household”. What knowledge, then, was given to him? Notice that he first mentions the eighteen, and after a pause the three hundred. The number eighteen consists of an iota [I], 10 and an eta [E],
8. There, you have Jesus -- and because the cross was destined to have grace in the letter tau [T] he next says "and three hundred", tau. So he indicates Jesus in the two letters and the cross in the other (Barnabus 9:7,8).
So Barnabus was a bit of a bible decoder!!!
Let's start with the famous words of Jesus which are mistranslated by almost all English bibles - see U237 - except Young's Literal Translation and the Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures (Watchtower)...
Truly I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all
these things occur.
35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.
36 About but the day that and hour no one has known, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, if not the Father only (Matthew 24 - Watchtower Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures).
So the angels did not know the date of Armageddon until around the time Jesus said this on 33Nisan10, 4 days before he was murdered. If the reader visits 14proofs, he will see 14 proofs of the date of Armageddon. One wonders how the angels could not have worked out some of these for themselves before Jesus died?
Well, without getting too technical the answer is given by Jesus when he said...
25 At that time Jesus said in response:
I publicly praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these
things from the wise and intellectual ones and have revealed them to babes (Matthew 11).
21 In that very hour he became overjoyed in the holy spirit and said: I publicly praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have carefully hidden these things from wise and intellectual ones, and have revealed them to babes. Yes, Oh Father, because to do thus came to be the way approved by you (Luke 10).
Since Jesus refers to his father as the 'Lord of heaven and earth', it is apparent that his subsequent words apply to both realms. In fact God is only described as 'Lord of heaven and earth' as above and in Acts 4:24 and Act 17:24 in the bible. So God hides bible truths from the angels and the demons, who are far wiser and far more intellectual than us, and reveals them to babes by angelic standards. All humans are babes by angelic standards. So the bible has to be sufficiently hard to decode and sufficiently ambiguous that even the angels cannot crack it. Then God can choose to give an insight to a baby human, and this lowly man, will than crack a part of the code first. The angels, on seeing this, will hit their spirit foreheads with their spirit hands and go doh! They then will race ahead of us humans using their superior intelligence and linguistic dexterity, only to get stuck at the next angelic road block until God chooses to reveal the next key to another lowly human.
For God and his children are not just fighting wicked humans, we are fighting the demons. That is why the bible code is so complicated, and why the bible is so ambiguous at first sight. Furthermore if you do not have faith and do not pray sincerely to God, to help you, then you will fare worse than the demons in your attempts to understand it. It is pointless to study the bible without prayer. The holy spirit must be present at every bible study, for progress to be made in accordance with God's will.
In this way, the demons are kept in the dark as to the precise methods God will use to defeat them.
Any element of the code that is found to be true for one account, is true for every account in the whole bible.
Or: Every account in the bible is written in precisely the same code
3 All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence (John 1).
16 All scripture is inspired of God (2 Timothy 3).
The Bible has one editor, Jesus Christ, and it has one ghost writer, inspirer - God. So it is consistent as a book, it does not contradict itself. This principle follows either from faith that God is the true author of the book, and that it is therefore consistent and therefore all in the same language or code. Or, in the alternative it follows from the academic axiom that 'the bible is perfect'. For if it is perfect then it is consistent, therefore it effectively has only one author and so it is all in the same language or code.
Every word in the bible has power in the greater meaning if not in the literal meaning.
18 For truly I say to you that sooner would heaven and earth pass away than for one smallest letter or one particle of a letter to pass away from the Law by any means and not all things take place (Matthew 5).
17 Indeed, it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one particle of a letter of the Law to go unfulfilled (Luke 16).
There are no wasted words in the bible. So repetitions have power, double descriptions have power. Seemingly trivial details have power. Every tense of every verb, every case of every word has power:
12 For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and [their] marrow, and [is] able to discern thoughts and intentions of [the] heart (Hebrews 4). 37 But that the dead are raised up even Moses disclosed, in the account about the thornbush, when he calls Jehovah 'the God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob.
So we must look at tense, the angel did not say the he used to be the God of Abraham.
16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. It says, not: And to seeds; as in the case of many such, but as in the case of one: And to your seed; who is Christ (Galatians 3).
We will use the Power Principle to deduce other principles and symbolic understandings.
In the midst of years oh bring it to life, in the midst of years may you make it known (Habakkuk 3:2).
This scripture applies to the resurrection of Jesus and to God's means of salvation from death, Jesus' death, being made known in the midst of a period of years. Now in Hebrew the wordbrq translated 'midst of' means either 'amongst' or 'middle of'. Obviously if it means 'amongst' then the scripture is telling us very little if anything. But if it means 'middle of' and we know the period of years concerned then we are being told the dates of Jesus' death and his resurrection here. By the Power Principle if we do know the period of years concerned and it is a large period, then the latter meaning of the Hebrew must be correct.
There are Irrelevant Details in the bible. The more irrelevant a detail appears to be in the literal meaning, the more relevant it must be in symbolic meaning
This follows from the Power Principle. The bible is full of seemingly irrelevant detail and crucial omissions. We saw in the case of King David's purchasing of the wood and cattle for the first sacrifice on the site of Solomon's temple (that today houses a mosque in Jerusalem) that he paid 50 shekels of silver for them - see [c11.1] or see . Great, who wants to know this? Are we going to put in a counter offer 3000 years later? The temple mount in Jerusalem is not an easy place to purchase right now! But the account does not tell us when Joab handed David the results of the registration. And neither are we told how long after David received the registration he made this sacrifice. We want to know this in order that we can verify whether our understanding of the 1,100,000 men of Israel drawing sword at one day per man is correct - see [c11.1] or see .
But actually, using the Numerical Principle of the code - [c11] the 50 shekels stand for the precise time period that we are looking for between David receiving the results from Joab, completing his registration sin, and him pacifying God with this sacrifice, 50 days, at a day for a shekel. So the price that David paid in shekels, is the period of time for which his sin remained unforgiven in days, a shekel for a day. So this seemingly irrelevant information, actually provides the answer in the symbolic meaning. This is how the bible is written. Here is another classic:
10 Jesus said: Have the men recline as at meal. Now there was a lot of grass in the place. Therefore the men reclined, about 5,000 in number (John 6).
Definition: A bible account is a self contained complete bible story. There may be several of these in one chapter, or an account may span several chapters. These accounts may refer to other bible accounts
Definition: The Event symbolic meaning of a symbolic account is the symbolic interpretation of the events in an account.
Definition: The Word symbolic meaning of a literal or a symbolic account is the symbolic interpretation of the words of the account.
Definition: A prophetic form is a repetitive phrase whose grammatical structure has coded information about the word symbolic meanings of part or all of an account.
Definition: A subaccount of a bible account is a self contained symbolic or partially symbolic (i.e. interpretational) section of that account. A prophetic form in a subaccount only affects that subaccount.
Definition: The narrative of a bible account is all of the literal parts of the account which are not interpretational. In other words it is all of the parts of the account which are not in the sub accounts. Prophetic forms in narrative only affect the narrative. They have no affect on any subaccounts.
Definition: A 'countable noun' is a noun acting as a noun (and not as a possessive adjective) or a participle which declines like a noun acting as a noun (i.e. a gerund).
Every literal account in the bible has the normal literal meaning.
Every non literal account, such as a dream, a parable or a vision, has a straightforward symbolic meaning, which is the symbolic meaning of the events described in the account. We call this the Event Symbolic meaning, or the Event Symbolism.
Every interpretational sub account in the bible has its normal literal meaning which describes the event symbolic meaning of one or more symbolic sub accounts. If the interpretation has symbolic sections then these have event symbolic meanings.
Every account in the bible, which:
 contains a 'countable noun', which is a noun acting as a noun (or a participle which declines as a noun which is used as a noun, such as a 'baker' - the one causing [things] to be baked - a Hiphil participle in Hebrew) which is repeated an even number of times (wherein all repeated words take the same meaning in the literal account or in the event symbolism), and which does not contain a double designation - see [Code6b] or which
 has a parallel account elsewhere in the bible,
has a further set of one, two, three or four (so far as we have found) word symbolic meanings.
The number of Word Symbolic meanings in a sub account is determined by the Successive Designations Principle below - see [Code6b]. These greater meanings are in addition to the literal meaning, in the case of a literal account, and are in addition to the straightforward symbolic meaning, the event symbolic meaning, in the case of a symbolic account such as a dream, a vision or a parable. They are in addition to the literal/event symbolic meaning of an interpretational sub account.
If a bible account contains an interpretational subaccount (typically an interpretation from Jesus, Daniel or Joseph), then the literal meaning of the interpretation is the event symbolic meaning of the symbolic subaccount which it is interpreting. Obviously since the narrative is also literal, its literal meaning sets the scene for the event symbolic meaning of all of its symbolic subaccounts.
The first word symbolic meaning of any interpretational subaccount is the first word symbolic meaning of the symbolic subaccount which it interprets. Furthermore the existence of a first word symbolic thread in an interpretational subaccount unites the first word symbolic meaning of the narrative to the first word symbolic meaning of the symbolic subaccount which the interpretation is explaining.
Likewise the second, third, fourth word symbolic meanings of any interpretational subaccount (if they exist) are the second third fourth word symbolic meanings of the symbolic subaccount which it interprets. Furthermore the existence of a second, third, fourth word symbolic thread in an interpretational subaccount unites the second, third, fourth word symbolic meaning of the narrative to the second, third, fourth word symbolic meaning of the symbolic subaccount which the interpretation is explaining.
Likewise the non existence of a first second third fourth word symbolic thread in an interpretational subaccount decouples the first second third fourth word symbolic meaning of the symbolic account which it interprets from the first second third fourth word symbolic meanings of the narrative respectively.
So the Word symbolic meaning is the symbolic interpretation of the words used to describe the events in the account. Whereas the Event Symbolic meaning is the symbolic interpretation of the events themselves. Perhaps this extra bible within the bible is another reason why Jesus is called: The Word. Furthermore Paul tells us that..
The word of God is alive and exerts power... (Hebrews 4:12).
He does not say that the events which the words describe are alive and exerting power. The words which describe these events are alive. So these words have the power, they are alive, having greater meanings, rather than the events. This is the philosophy of word symbolism. One interprets the words not the events. One divorces the words from the events, and interprets them out of context.
Here is an example of the symbolic structure of Genesis 41, the classic symbolic structure puzzle from the Holy Spirit. This symbolic structure table does not go into the number of fulfilments of each word thread of each subaccount.
|Cow Dream||Corn Dream||Cow Recital||Corn Recital||Joint Interpretation||Narrative|
|Event||Event||Event||Event||Literal of Events||Literal|
|Word1||Word1||Word1||Word1||Word1 of Word1s||Word1|
|Word2||Word2||Word2||Word2||Word2 of Word2s||Word2|
Word1 means the first word symbolic thread of the subaccount. Each colour stands for a different symbolic meaning set for the countable nouns. The Cow Recital and the Cow dream take the same meaning in their event symbolism, since they both refer to the same events. They take the same symbolic meanings in their word symbolisms by the parallel sub account principle - see [Code15]. The same is true of the Corn dream and the Corn recital. Joseph's Interpretation links the meaning of the narrative which is literal to the event symbolic meanings of the recitals (which Joseph actually heard) which are symbolic.
By the Symbolic Structure Principle above, since the interpretation has a first word thread, the symbolic accounts that it interprets (the recitals) have the same symbolism as the narrative in this word thread. The same is true for the second word thread. And in all the word threads the recitals of the dreams have the same word symbolism as the dreams themselves by the parallel subaccount principle. So the interpretation links the word symbolisms of the symbolic accounts to the literal account the narrative. The interpretation itself is both symbolic and literal. So the red and blue bands are universal across all the 6 subaccounts due to the existence of a first and second word thread in Joseph's interpretation. The third word thread of the recital of the cows does not share the same symbolism as the third word thread of the narrative because Joseph's interpretation does not have a third word thread. So we used two different shades of Lilac for these symbolisms. For a full decoding of Genesis 40 and 41 - see 
Most accounts in the bible do have word symbolic meanings but some do not. Some accounts only have their literal or event symbolic meanings. For example...
was passing along from there, two blind
him, crying out and saying: Have mercy upon us, Son
28 After he had gone into the house, the blind [ones] came to him, and Jesus asked them: Do you have faith that I can do this? They answered him: Yes, Lord.
29 Then he touched their eyes, saying: According to your faith let it happen to you.
30 And their eyes received sight. Moreover, Jesus sternly charged them, saying: See that nobody gets to know it.
31 But the [ones], after getting outside, made it public about him in all that region. (Matthew 9)
Son of David 1x
This literal bible account has no 'bible noun' occurring an even number of times and no double designations. It doesn't have a parallel account, so it has no word symbolic meaning.
The kingdom of the heavens is like a dragnet thrown
into the sea, and gathering up [fish] of every kind.
48 When it got full they hauled it up onto the beach, and sitting down, they collected the fine ones into vessels, the unsuitable they threw outside.
49 This is how it will be in the conclusion of the system of things. The angels will go out and separate the wicked ones out of the midst of the righteous ones, and will cast them into the fiery furnace. There is where the weeping and the gnashing of teeth will be (Matthew 13).
This symbolic bible account has no repeated 'bible noun' and has no parallel account and no double designation. It therefore has no word symbolism.
If the reader is puzzling over what precise distinction we are making, between event symbolism and word symbolism then please consider the following non scriptural example:
King Nebuchadnezzar went fishing. The king caught a fish. Nebuchadnezzar put the fish back. His servants said: My Lord, why did you not eat the fish. Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon said: Because I didn't have any chips to eat it with!
In the literal meaning of this little (made up) story the character referred to variously as:
King Nebuchadnezzar (adjective and noun)
Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon (double designation)
... is just one character. He is Nebuchadezzar, the King of Babylon, the Lord over his servants. But in the Word symbolism, we are talking about 5 different but related characters. 'My Lord', 'the King' and 'Nebuchadnezzar' may be totally unrelated, but King Nebuchadnezzar will be related to 'The King' and to 'Nebuchadnezzar' and to 'Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon', since it shares common words with these other designations.
Event symbolism is referred to variously in this book and in the website www.truebiblecode.com as the first symbolism, the straight symbolism, the straightforward symbolism.
Word symbolism is referred to as the second symbolism, the coded symbolism, the account symbolism.
19 Consequently we have the prophetic word [made] more sure and you are doing well in paying attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and a daystar rises, in your hearts.
So all of the word of God, the word of life, the bible, is prophetic. They are all prophetic words.8 The sovereign Lord Jehovah himself has spoken who will not prophesy? (Amos 3).
12 For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and [their] marrow, and [is] able to discern thoughts and intentions of [the] heart (Hebrews 4).
The word being alive, means that it has a further life over and above it’s literal meaning. This is how it exerts power in the prophetic sense. The bible is not a dead history book of past events. It is also a living history book of future events symbolically encoded in the stories of the past events. This works because history is fractal. Was it Churchill who said: The further back you look into history, the further forward you see? The same is true of the bible, but actually because each account has more than one life. They all have greater meanings. These meanings are normally prophetic and so are further fulfillments of the scriptures.
One can use the Consistency Principle to deduce that the whole bible is prophetic just from the fact that certain scriptures are prophetic. Likewise since certain scriptures are laws, we can deduce that the whole bible is the 'Law of God', using the same principle. And since certain scriptures are Psalms, we can deduce that the whole bible is a giant praise to God, it is one huge Psalm, by the Consistency Principle.
Even when we are being told that Jacob crossed a river with 200 she goats, 20 he goats, 200 female sheep, 20 rams, 30 camels giving suck and their young ones, 40 cows, 10 bulls, 20 she asses and 10 full grown asses (Genesis 32:14,15) this is prophetic. It is symbolic, it stands for something greater. Who actually wants to know the precise numbers of these animals that crossed a river 3800 years ago ? (except perhaps a historical agricultural economist).
So either the word of God is alive and is exerting power today, through further fulfillments of words written thousands of years ago or it is dead and powerless. Either the flaming blade of the sword guarding the way back to the tree of life in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:24), the two edged sword (Hebrews 4:12) that pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, is continuously turning, or it has broken down and has come to a standstill. Either the word of God has a height and a breadth and a length and a depth, which we are able to grasp mentally (Ephesians 3:18), or it is flat. Either this book has further meaning upon further meaning upon further meaning, or it has one meaning and we should all become Hasidic Jews and start declaring Sabbath-free zones everywhere.
Incidentally just because a bible account has no second meaning does not mean it is not in a code. On the contrary it is in a code, a code which prohibits it from having a further meaning. Here are some examples of word symbolic meanings...
1 When Israel was a boy, then I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. (Hosea 11).
These words from the prophet Hosea are a historical statement about the calling of the nation of Israel out of Egypt at the time of Moses. But Matthew knew that they had a further fulfillment involving a further son:
15 and he stayed there until the decease of Herod, for that to be fulfilled which was spoken by Jehovah through his prophet, saying: Out of Egypt I called my son (Matthew 2).
This time the son was Jesus who was taken to Egypt by his parents to avoid persecution by Herod. So there can be no argument that this particular scripture has a further meaning. This second meaning cannot be literal since there can only be one literal meaning which is the historical meaning. So the second fulfilment results from a second meaning which is a symbolic meaning. In fact it is the word symbolic meaning of this verse of Hosea.
Consider now the words of Jesus in Matthew 24:
21 For then there will be great tribulation such as has not
occurred since the world's beginning until now, no, nor will occur again.
22 In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short (Matthew 24).
This looks like it applies to a great tribulation leading into Armageddon, since the 'world', which is biblical terms is the system of things post Adam's fall and pre Armageddon, is still ongoing, and we haven't all died yet (neither do we all die at the end). But in the same chapter we read:
15 Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting
thing that causes desolation, as spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy
place, (let the reader use discernment,) 16 then let those in Judea begin
fleeing to the mountains (Matthew 24).
This looks like it applies to the end of the Jewish system of things, and the great tribulation on the inhabitants of Jerusalem from 66Tishri when the Roman General Cestius entered the temple in Jerusalem until to 70Ab when the Roman General Titus burned the temple in Jerusalem. Obviously fleeing to the mountains of Judea is not a viable option for people in Colorado at the end of the World.
For these reasons and other reasons, many Christian churches understand that Matthew 24 applies both to the end of the Jewish system of things 66-70 AD and the end of this system of things (The great tribulation and Armageddon). However what they have hitherto failed to understand is that rather than some verses applying to one end and other verses applying to the other end, the whole account has a literal (although somewhat metaphorically stated) meaning applying to the end of the Jewish system of things and a symbolic meaning applying to this whole system of things, 'the world'. So actually every verse applies to the end of Jerusalem by the Romans in the first meaning and to the end of the World by the final corruption of the UN in the second meaning, which is the word symbolic meaning of Matthew 24. For the UN started as a great humanitarian organisation but ends as a corrupt worldwide dictatorship. If you do not believe that this sort of thing happens, then read animal farm by George Orwell, or go see Star Wars, the attack of the clones. The bad guys always begin by posing as saviours - the UK/US are also going rotten by the same route presently. The bible describes them as follows:
11 And I saw another wild beast ascending out of the earth, and it had two horns like a lamb, but it began speaking as a dragon (Revelation 13).
The two horns are the twin powers of the US and the UK. The horns of a lamb are sacrificial and saving. Both powers made great sacrifices and saved the world in two world wars. But the dragon is Satan's heavenly administration. And right now the US and the UK have ceased acting as a lamb and have started speaking as a dragon. In other words we lie. We lie about WMDs and procure war votes from congress and parliament using deception. Let us be more specific. The US and the UK were genuine true honest saviours in both World Wars. We used to be the good guys. We were also genuine true and honest saviours in the first Gulf War under Bush senior and stormy Norman.
But in the second Gulf War war, under Bush junior and his generals, we are becoming the bad guys. During the run up to this war we posed as saviours but were in fact acting as aggressors on the basis of a deception. This is not to say that the removal of Saddam was not a good idea. There are many dictators that the world would be better off without and he was certainly one of them. But without getting involved in politics, it is a bad idea to lie to congress or parliament about WMDs and a bad idea to trick them both into declaring war on an unarmed man for the purpose of disarming him. For the full symbolic meaning of Revelation 13 (as far as we understand it) - see .
Now the writer is fully aware that the majority of UK and US nationals will not want to hear or believe or accept the above, because as a race, man believes what he is comfortable with and refuses to believe what he is uncomfortable with. This is why God chooses to save us on our faith, which is our belief. For if we love him, then we will be comfortable with him and so we will believe, but if we do not, then we will not be comfortable with him and so we will refuse to believe.
But refusing to believe a truth has no effect on any reality, it only buries your head in the sand. So please, my brothers from every race, do not be like the Pakistani Muslims who were surveyed about 911, and 89% of whom believed that Muslims were not responsible for the Twin Towers Tragedy. And do not be like the sons of Jacob, most of whom believe that Jesus (whom their forefather's murdered) is not God's son. For we are all the same as them, and they are all the same as each other in genetic character predisposition. Believe instead in the truth, however uncomfortable it appears to be and however embarrassing it may be. Be like Daniel Barenboim the world class Jewish pianist who plays his music to the Palestinians because he will not hide from the truth. Now he truly is a son of Abraham, through the 1AC, and God himself will listen to his music for a very very long time - see , because one does not show courage and love like that without faith in God. And who cares about some minor embarrassment or about the loss of a few cushions? Surely the truth is greater than these things? for the good book says:
32 Know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8).
Here are another couple of famous examples from Matthew 24
2 Truly I say to you: By no means will a stone be left here upon a stone and not be thrown down (Matthew 24).
In the literal meaning, the temple was destroyed by the Roman General Titus in 70 CE, and the temple was knocked down, and no stone was left standing upon a stone. In the greater meaning the temple stones are the living stones of the Christian temple of the body of the Christ, which is all of the new covenant saints. And this is a prophecy that this temple will be knocked down, whilst the stones are still around. In other words what happened to the Jews, their rejection by God, will also happen to the first administration of the Christian church, under the New covenant Saints, these stones.
Jesus when describing the signs of the times to his disciples said:
34 Truly I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away until all these things occur (Matthew 24).
In other words one generation will see all of the signs of the time and the end. Now we know that this was true in the case of the disciples and Jewish system of things. They saw the signs of the times and they saw General Titus destroy Jerusalem and burn the temple in 70CE. But there is a further meaning that applies to the generation that sees the signs of the times today during Jesus' second presence. He is present right now, see - The 2 Presences and 6 related comings of the Christ . In the current meaning the generation that saw the first world war will see Armageddon (through their spectacles!)
The apostle Paul in Galatians 4 informs us that 3 chapters of Genesis are written in a Symbolic Code. He says:
22 For example, it is written that Abraham acquired two sons, one by the servant
girl and one by the free woman;
23 but the one by the servant girl was actually born in the manner of flesh, the other by the free woman through a promise.
24 These things stand as a symbolic drama; for these [women] mean two covenants, the one from Mount Sinai, which brings forth children for slavery, and which is Hagar.
25 Now this Hagar means Sinai, a mountain in Arabia, and she corresponds with the Jerusalem today, for she is in slavery with her children.
26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother (Galatians 4).
Now we read about Hagar giving birth to Ishmael in Genesis 16, and we read about Sarah conceiving Isaac in Genesis 17 and her giving birth to Isaac in Genesis 21. So Paul is saying to us that these three chapters at the least, are a 'Symbolic Drama'. They have a greater meaning which is encoded symbolically. So these three chapters are not just dead history they are also living prophecy written in terms of dead history. They have a greater meaning relating to covenants. But for the full story of Genesis 16 - see .
So come now dear reader, son or daughter of the greatest mind in the universe. Can you think of a question that is being begged of you by the holy spirit at this time?
What is so special about Genesis 16, Genesis 17, Genesis 21, Matthew 24 and Hosea 11?
Here are the words of David before he became King of Israel. David was speaking about his own persecution as he hid in the wilderness for 7 years from the jealousy of King Saul.
1 My God, my God, why have you left me? (Psalm 22)
16 For dogs have surrounded me;
The assembly of evildoers themselves have enclosed me.
Like a lion [they are at] my hands and my feet.
17 I can count all my bones.
They themselves look, they gaze upon me.
18 They apportion my garments among themselves
And upon my clothing they cast lots (Psalm 22).
These words were uttered by David about his own personal situation. But they are inspired prophetic words, and they have a second fulfillment in the impalement/Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. For he said just before he died:
46 Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Matthew 27).
Not only this but the soldiers guarding him cast lots over his garments, none of his bones were broken on the stake (the legs of crucifixion victims were routinely broken by the Romans to speed up their deaths if necessary). The robbers on either side of him had their legs broken. Jesus was of course fastened by his hands and his feet to the stake. So here again is history which is also living prophecy. The literal Psalm applies to King David, the Word symbolic meaning applies to Jesus Christ. The application of this psalm of David to Jesus has been known for many years. But no man before 1992 realised that all scripture has a greater application, a greater meaning, not just Psalm 22.
So now we can ask the rhetorical question what is so special about Genesis 16, Genesis 17, Genesis 21, Matthew 24, Hosea 11 and Psalm 22?
17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it dying you will die (Genesis 2).
The literal meaning was that Adam died, not physically but judicially on the literal day that he ate. By Judicial death we mean that Adam was under a death sentence, and 'as good as dead' from then on. He was living merely by means of a stay of execution of that sentence. Jesus meant the same thing when he said:
22 Let the dead bury their dead (Matthew 8).
He meant: Let those who are still under Adam's death sentence bury their physically dead ones. The greater meaning of God's command in Genesis is that all of Adam's sons die physically during the period or 'day', wherein they continue to eat from this tree of knowledge of good and bad. So today, for example, even though we are no longer in the garden of Eden, we are still eating and we are still dying. The 'Day' of Genesis 2:17, is therefore the 'day' of this system of things, it is still ongoing! But not for much longer. And when we stop eating, then we stop dying. Putting this another way, once we have learned Good from Bad, then obviously God no longer needs to kill us Judicially. When God threw Adam out of the garden he stopped him gaining access not to the tree of knowledge of Good and Bad, but to the tree of life:
24 And so he drove the man out and posted at the east of the garden of Eden the cherubs and the flaming blade of a sword that was turning itself continually to guard the way to the tree of life (Genesis 3).
Jesus regarded the whole bible as the prophetic law of God, he said:44 He now said to them: These are my words which I spoke to you while I was yet with you, that all the things written in the law of Moses and in the Prophets and Psalms about me must be fulfilled.
How can the law of Moses be fulfilled? A law is supposed to be obeyed not fulfilled! But he says again:
17 Indeed, it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one particle of a letter of the Law to go unfulfilled (Luke 16).
1 For since the Law has a shadow of the good things to come, but not the very substance of the things... (Hebrews 10).
But both Jesus and Paul show us that the 'Law' does not merely refer to the Law of Moses, in the Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers. It is the whole bible. The whole book is the law of God for mankind.
Paul says:21 Tell me, you who want to be under law [of Moses]: Do you not hear the Law [of God]?
But this wasn't written in the law of Moses, it was written in Psalm 82:66 I myself have said, You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High (Psalm 82).
But this wasn't written in the law of Moses, no, it was written in Psalm 69:44 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head (Psalm 69 - Septuagint bible LXX)
So Psalms must be a part of the 'law' of God.
But Isaiah said, over 700 years after Moses was given the law:
3 Out of Zion law will go forth and the word of Jehovah out of Jerusalem (Isaiah 2).
In one meaning this law out of Zion is the word of God out of heavenly Jerusalem, which is the whole bible. What we have just done is extend an element of the bible code, namely, that every scripture has a further fulfillment, from the Law of Moses to the whole bible, by considering other scriptures to define precisely what Jesus meant. But we could equally well have done this using the Consistency Principle above.
Every verse of the Law of Moses, every verse of Genesis, every verse of the Psalms, is to be fulfilled again. In fact the whole bible is the law of mankind and all of it, every letter of it, has to be fulfilled a second time. And for the majority of scriptures, we are now living in that time, which is why the same one, Jesus Christ, is opening up our minds yet again. For if every scripture has a further fulfillment then so does Luke 24 when it says:
45 Then he opened up their minds fully to grasp the meaning of the
46 and he said to them: In this way it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from among the dead on the third day (Luke 24).
So how can our minds be opened up? In what way is the suffering and resurrection timing of Jesus written in the scriptures? Well Jesus has already explained...
40 For just as Jonah was in the belly of the huge fish
and 3 nights, so the Son of man will be in the heart of the earth 3 days and 3
nights (Matthew 12).
30 For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, in the same way will the Son of man be also to this generation.
It is encoded symbolically in a historical account about a prophet who was eaten by a big fish! Yes, it is another symbolic drama. Jesus opened up the minds of his disciples by making them aware that the book was written in this symbolic way and that every account stood symbolically for something else. This indeed is one reason why Jesus spoke to the crowds entirely in illustrations. He was teaching them and teaching us, that the whole bible was written in this way. Even his famous parables have a greater meaning in addition to the obvious moral message!
34 All these things Jesus spoke to the crowds by illustrations. Indeed, without an illustration he would not speak to them (Matthew 13).
Jesus only explained the meaning of two of his parables to his disciples in the scriptures. Of course he explained the meanings of many other parables to them privately, but the holy word only records to of his explanations. These explanations are therefore fundamental to all Christians especially to bible decoders. He explained the meanings of the parable of the wheat and the weeds, and of the parable of the sower who went to sow.
In his explanation of the parable of the wheat and the weeds, Jesus gives us the meanings of the words: Sower, Field, Fine Seed, Weeds, Enemy, Harvest, all of which are repeated NOUNS in the account - see [The Repetition Principle]. And he gives the meaning of one further noun: Reapers, which is not repeated - see .
In his explanation of the sower who went to sow, in all three cases (Matthew13, Mark4 and Luke8), Jesus gives the meaning neither of words, nor of repeated words, but of unrepeated phrases which describe events in the parable - see .
So in the case of the weeds Jesus explains the meaning of the words in the parable (the repeated nouns except one) and in the case of the sower Jesus explains the meaning of the events in the parable (which are not repeated). It is not hard to see, therefore, that Jesus is explaining the word symbolic meaning of the weeds and the event symbolic meaning of the sower. He is also, by only explaining these two parables in this way, explaining that these two are the only two types of symbolism employed by the bible code.
In other words these two are the beginning and end of the matter as regards bible symbolism. Now in the case of the sower, the literal meaning of Jesus' explanation explains the event symbolic meaning of the parable and the word symbolic meaning of Jesus' explanation explains (to some extent) the word symbolic meaning of the parable. But in the case of the weeds, the literal meaning of his explanation covers the word symbolic meaning of the parable and the word symbolic meaning of his explanation covers the event symbolic meaning of the parable. For even the explanations are holy and therefore coded.
The first 2 verses of the book of Revelation read:
1 A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave
him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place. And he sent
forth his angel and presented [it] in signs through him to his slave John,
2 who bore witness to:
the word God gave
and to the witness Jesus Christ gave,
even to all the things he saw (Revelation 1).
Obviously 'all the things he saw' is the literal account of the vision. But John is also bearing witness to 'The word God gave'. This therefore is a witness to God's words themselves which is the word symbolic meaning. John is also bearing witness to the (symbolically expressed) witness that Jesus gave him in the form of the vision, this then is the event symbolic account, the symbolic meaning of the events of the vision.
|All the things he saw||Literal account of the vision|
|The Word God gave||Coded word symbolic meaning of the vision|
|The Witness Jesus Christ gave||Straight event symbolic meaning of the vision|
But then the reader must consider the following question. Did God, like we men do in many of our great projects, only work out how to write the bible properly when he had almost finished the job? Did he only work out how to inspire a symbolic bible account when he reached Revelation, having not thought of it at the time Moses wrote Genesis?
Obviously not for he is:
10 The one telling from the beginning the finale, and from long ago the things that have not been done (Isaiah 46).
He is the one who knew that Man would walk on the moon before he said: Let there be light. So we deduce that every symbolic account in the whole bible is written in this same way as Revelation. So all symbolic accounts have an event symbolic meaning and a word symbolic meaning.
It is not hard to see that literal accounts, such as the history of Abraham or David etc. have the same set of meanings as symbolic accounts except that the literal account is the event symbolic meaning. For a literal account is a symbolic account with no symbolism if you see what we mean. In mathematical terms this would be the identity symbolism. A symbolism in which an apple is always an apple and an orange is always an orange etc.
Accounts which contain both literal and symbolic portions, such as dreams, explanations and fulfillments, obey the two rules above for their respective portions.
Do you remember the famous words of Jesus:
16 In this way the last ones will be first, and the first ones last (Matthew 20).
There are many meanings of this scripture and other scriptures which repeat this last being first concept. But one interesting one is that the last words of the bible tell the reader how to decode it. Hebrew books are read from the back to the front, they are read backwards. And this is a living prophecy from God, the creator of both English and Hebrew, that the decoding of the bible works backwards from the end. Much of our Chronology works backwards from the date of Armageddon. And as regards the bible code, well like any good text book, the answer can be looked up in the back of the book!
18 I am bearing witness to everyone (panti
masculine) that hears
the words (logouV masculine) of the prophecy of this
scroll: If anyone
adds/imposes upon them (auta neuter - words
or hearers), God will impose upon him the plagues that are written in this
19 And if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away from the trees of life and out of the holy city, things which are written about in this scroll (Revelation 22).
The literal meaning of these two verses is that if you add words to the scroll of Revelation itself, you will get plagues, and if you take words from the scroll of Revelation, corrupting the text, you will lose your everlasting life.
1 A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place. And he sent forth his angel and presented [it] in signs through him to his slave John (Revelation 1).
11 saying: What you see write in a scroll and send it to the seven congregations, in Ephesus and in Smyrna and in Pergamum and in Thyatira and in Sardis and in Philadelphia and in Laodicea (Revelation 1).
6 And he said to me: These words are faithful and
true, and the Lord, the God of the inspired expressions of the prophets sent
his angel forth to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place.
7 And, look! I am coming quickly. Happy is anyone observing the words of the prophecy of this scroll.
8 Well, I John was the one hearing and seeing these things. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel that had been showing me these things (Revelation 22).
This scroll is the scroll of Revelation in the literal meaning that contains all the visions presented by the angel of Jesus (who must have been Gabriel) to John. More seriously, it appears that some bible versions of Revelation have bits added and bits removed. We shall have to investigate this further...
Since Revelation 22 is a literal account from verse 6 onwards, so the symbolic meaning is an account symbolism, and is further the very definition of how all the symbolic meanings of the bible work! For we have the words of the scroll of the prophecy and we have the words of the prophecy of the scroll. These two define the event symbolic and account symbolic meanings as follows:
|Scroll of this prophecy||Account of the events|
|Prophecy of this scroll||Events of the account|
|Words of the scroll of this prophecy||Symbolic meaning of the account of the events|
|Words of the prophecy of this scroll||Symbolic meaning of the events of the account|
So the bible has two symbolic grammars, if you like. There is a symbolic meaning of the prophecy of the scroll, which is the straight forward symbolism of the events in the account. Then there is the symbolic meaning of the scroll of the prophecy, which is the symbolic meaning of the account of the events, the words that describe the events. Hence the name 'Word Symbolism' for this symbolic meaning. This may be another reason why Jesus is called the 'Word' of God.
So if anyone persecutes someone who understands the Event symbolism of Revelation then they get plagues. And if any sanctified person will not accept Word Symbolism then they get no more food from the tree of life, and they fail to join the holy city of FDS2/4 so they break their baptism.
The corollary of this is that the Holy City and the life giving food are derived from the Word Symbolic meanings of the bible.
Revelation makes the distinction between Event Symbolism and Account Symbolism using Account symbolism. It is an implicit distinction. But nonetheless, the distinction is there.
For those who do not understand the meaning of explicit, consider the two equations below:
x+3=2x ( implicit)
Both equations have the same solution, namely x=3, the latter equation defines x in terms of itself, this is the meaning of 'implicit'. Likewise Revelation 22:18,19 define event and account symbolisms through account symbolism. But verse 10 reads:
10 He also tells me: Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll, for the appointed time is near (Revelation 22).
Whereas Gabriel said to Daniel:
4 And as for you, Oh Daniel, make secret the words and seal up the scroll, until the time of [the] end. Many will rove about, and the [true] knowledge will become abundant (Daniel 12).
The words of the prophecy of the scroll are the event symbolic meaning. This meaning is the straight symbolism, it is not sealed. In fact mankind saw that the wild beast of Revelation 13 and 17 was the League of Nations in 1920. This is the event symbolic meaning. But the account symbolic meaning, the word symbolism, was sealed up until the time of the end, which began in 1992Shebat21 - see . Now Revelation22 deliberately does not say: Do not seal up the words of the scroll of the prophecy, because the Word symbolic meaning was sealed up.
So the same account that tells us not to mess around physically with the physical holy words of Revelation (and it tells us that false churches will do this), also tells us how precisely to mess around symbolically with these words in order to get their symbolic meanings (and true churches will do this). And by the Consistency Principle, this symbolic methodology applies, the two symbolisms apply, not just to the book of Revelation, but to the whole bible.
Finally we have the shortest parable in the bible which is:
33 Another illustration he spoke to them: The kingdom of the heavens is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three large measures of flour, until the whole mass was fermented/leavened (Matthew 13).
Ok, you young paduan learners! If it is the most insignificant and smallest of the parables in the whole bible, then what does this tell you about its spiritual meaning in this upside down world in which we live?
Yes, it is the greatest of them all in meaning. Well, the event symbolic meaning is as follows:
The woman is the holy spirit, the leaven is the bible code, and the three lumps of flour are the literal, the event symbolic and the account symbolic meanings of the bible. When the whole mass is fermented/leavened (decoded), then we can truly eat the whole book and see both the code and the truth and God and the true religion and his plan and his love and his humour and his righteousness, and our total and utter pretentiousness and stupidity stretching over 3500 years. As regards the account symbolic meaning of Matthew 13:33 and the parallel account in Luke 13:20 please see section .
This leaven is not the wicked teachings of the Pharisees but is rather the
good teachings of the true priesthood of God. This website is the result of such
leaven. We are expanding the bread of heaven to make it fully digestible.
If one character or item in a subaccount is referred to by two or more non successive nouns (nouns used as nouns or nouns used as possessive adjectives or gerunds, but not adjectives used as nouns), then these nouns refer to two or more characters or items in the various word symbolic threads if such threads exist. These characters or items may be the same as or different from the one character or item to which all the nouns refer in the literal or event symbolic meaning.
Our first incorrect idea for this principle was:
[[If one character or item in an account is referred to by two or more (successive or non successive) nouns used as nouns (multiple designations), then it has two or more word symbolic meanings in the various word symbolic threads if they exist. These may be the same as or different from the event symbolic meaning.]] - REJECTED
See the accounts in section .
If a noun is referred to by a pronoun, then in the word symbolic meaning teh pronoun represents the word symbolic meaning of the last stated noun. So for example if we read...
Peter went fishing
He caught a fish
Simon ate the fish
His belly became full
'He' is Peter and 'His' is Simon in the word symbolic meaning. Both are of course Simon Peter in the literal meaning.
The double or triple or quadruple or quintuple or sextuple designation (which we use to mean two, three, four, five or six successive designations), is the most important prophetic form in the bible. Here is the definition and the effect of this form...
If a character or item designated by...
1. A noun acting as a noun
2. An adjective acting as a noun (which almost invariably means that it is preceded by 'the' i.e. is definite or is in the construct in Hebrew)
3. A participle, (a verb used as an adjective), which adjective is acting as a noun, (which means that it must be preceded by 'the' i.e. is definite - such as 'the scorched [one]' or is in the construct in Hebrew)
4. A gerund (a verb acting as a noun such as a 'smoker')
5. The implied phrase 'The [one]' where '[one]' is implied and is of course acting as a noun.
6. The word 'tiV' meaning 'a certain one'.
7. The word 'eiV' meaning 'one'.
is referred to by two or more successive such designations, both/all of which are definite or both/all of which are indefinite.
And if all the designations when taken separately in the context of the verse act as nouns and the verse makes sense with each designation standing alone (which means that the designations must all be in the same case in Greek). In the case of parallel account, you can use the information in all the parallel accounts to help make sense of each separate designation.
And if the first one of the successive designations is actually a noun acting as a noun.
And if any possessive pronoun in one of the successive designations is also in all other succeeding or preceding designations.
Then there are two or more Word Symbolic meanings to that account. The account possesses two or more Word Symbolic threads/strands/meanings.
The first Word Symbolic thread has only the first designation of any successive designations, and substitutes all second and third etc. successive designations to be the first successive designation wherever these may occur in the account including and after the successive designation (until any further successive designation redefines these substitutions). The second Word Symbolic thread takes only the second designation of any successive designations etc. and substitutes the first and third etc. successive designations to be the second successive designation wherever these may occur in the account including and after the successive designation (until any further successive designation redefines these substitutions) etc.
The first designation occurs first in position. If several items or characters have successive designations then all the first designations form the first word symbolic thread, and all the second designations form the second word symbolic thread etc. If an account has a quadruple designation and a double designation, the the double designation shows the first designation in the first and third threads and the second designation in the second and fourth threads of the account.
A designating phrase cannot be a part of a multiple designation if it contains a pronoun since the pronoun will become disconnected from the noun it stands for in any substitution.
These generally end in 'ed'. For example, 'Kicked' can be a past participle: We have kicked. Or it can be a passive participle: We were kicked. In general the verb 'to have' gives a past participle and the verb 'to be' gives a passive participle. A participle is a verb acting as an adjective. A Gerund is a participle acting as a noun. In the English language, only present participles can act as nouns (Driving is fun). Passive participles act as adjectives only in English. But in Greek passive participles can act as nouns (The Scorched [one] was sold last).
The soil, the fine [soil] (a repeated designation)
Lord! Lord! (a repeated designation)
Nebuchadnezzar, the king
The King, Nebuchanezzar
King Nebuchadnezzar ('King' is a noun)??
Rebekah, a sister of Bethuel
A man, a householder
A maidservant, an Egyptian
Joseph, Son of David
Sarah, Abraham's wife
The Faithful Steward, the discreet [one]
Lord Jehovah, holy [one] of Israel (Hebrew)
The ram, one standing before the watercourse
The Island, the [one] called Patmos
The 7 congregations, the [ones] in Asia
The false prophet, the one having deceived
Men of the city, men of Sodom
Angel of the God, the [one] travelling before army of Israel (Exodus 14)
The bull, the one
The bull, the other
My lord, My brother (might be OK since both designations are possessed)??
Father Abraham ('Father' is a noun!)
A son, a male (translating this as 'A male son' would be an insult to the reader)
Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera, the priest of On (Asenath was not herself the priest of On, her father was. Potiphera is a possessive double designation - So the first thread has, Asenath, and the second has, the daughter of the priest of On)
The heads of grain, the withered [ones]??
James and John, the 2 sons of Zebedee
A ruler, a certain one [eiV]
A priest, a certain one [tiV]
Women, certain ones
A man, a certain one
A certain one, a man [it is just possible that it does not work this way round and we should read: a certain man]
The Dragon, the great [one], the serpent, the archaic [one], the [one] called [the] Devil and the Satan, the [one] misleading the entire inhabited earth.
The last combination is the daddy of all successive designations. It is in fact the product of Jesus' sense of humour! The joke is of course that the phrase: The one called the Devil and Satan, which is actually declaring that it is giving us two successive designations for Satan, is itself a successive designation for Satan! This sort of thing is a cryptic confirmation of the existence of the successive designation principle. The whole thing is rather like an Angus Deaton quiz show.
Consider the made up prophetic form:
The Dragon, the great [one], the hated [one], the lying [one], the [one] lying to everyone
This has a passive participle (Hated [one]) acting as a noun and a present participle (Lying [one]) acting as a noun. Both of these participles are therefore Gerunds. Finally it has 'the' acting as a noun through the implied '[one]'. The largest number of successive designations in the correct form that we have seen in the bible is 6.
A woman, but, a certain one (not successive but reads OK)
The famine, the that ('that' can be used as an adjective or a pronoun,
but is not an adjective, it is a determinant)
Some of the men, the Galileans (some, all etc. are not nouns).
Against-the prophet, against-Moses
My servant, Moses (Pronoun imbalance)
Abraham, her husband (Pronoun imbalance)
to-Nebuchadnezzar, the king
The dragon (accusative), the serpent (nominative)
Lord, the God of us, the almighty (Pronoun imbalance)
The cows, the [ones] ascending after them (Pronoun imbalance)
The enemy, the [one] having sown them (Pronoun imbalance)
The woman, the this (pronoun imbalance)
The woman, this (pronoun imbalance)
This [one], the woman (pronoun imbalance)
A man there was, a householder (not successive)
A hostile [one], a man (indefinite adjective, could be a hostile man)
The ram that you saw, [the] owner of the two horns (pronoun imbalance)
Men, Galilean [ones] (indefinite adjective but used substantively)
When substituting single designations one must substitute the whole designation including the definite article (the) and the possessive operator (of). The single designation to be substituted must be in the same case as the substituting designation in Greek (or possibly just precisely the same word), unless the Greek word for the Designation is indeclinable. In Hebrew both the substituting word and the substituted word must be absolute or both must be construct (this does not apply to the successive designation itself). In Greek and in Hebrew both a definite designation cannot substitute an indefinite designation but an indefinite designation can substitute a definite one.
Hebrew nouns with the inseparable prepositions (k as, l to, b in, m from) cannot make successive designations because both designations would need to have the prepositional prefix and then the nouns would not be successive having a preposition between them. Hebrew nouns with pronominal suffixes (suffixes which are pronouns) cannot make successive designations because they are not plain nouns (we realised this when we saw that they do not work in Genesis 16 or Numbers 12). Or more likely because one designation is possessed by a pronoun and the other isn't. In the Greek too, if one designation has a pronoun and the other doesn't then the result is not a successive designation because the pronoun imbalance would introduce a possibly meaningless pronoun into sentences containing the designation without the pronoun, on substitution.
[[If the result of the substitutions has a double 'the', such as 'the the Nazarene', then one shortens this to 'the Nazarene'. One can justify this 'the the' fix on the basis that these substitutions on the double designations themselves always result in a repeated word or phrase which is similarly shortened to one recital. For example: Jesus, the Nazarene, becomes: The Nazarene, The Nazarene, which becomes: The Nazarene, in the second word thread, and becomes: Jesus, Jesus, which becomes: Jesus in the first word thread. Or one can justify it on the basis that in Greek, the the Nazarene means, the [one], the Nazarene, which means, the Nazarene.]]???
Mary (nominative) and Mary (vocative)
Jesus and 'of Jesus'
King (absolute) and King (construct)
King, the King
For example the successive designation: Nebuchadnezzar, the king, causes a substitution to occur in the phrase: The King was very pleased, but not in the phrase: Our king is wonderful (because 'the' is absent).
Successive designations can be possessive of course. Take the first verse in Matthew for example:
1 The book of the history of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham (Matthew 1).
Jesus, Christ, son of David, son of Abraham is a quadruple designation for our saviour. But all of the multiple designations are used as adjectives possessively describing the noun 'history'. So this is not a successive designation as we have defined that prophetic form. But it is nonetheless a multiple designation, so what should we do with it? Well we puzzled over this one for some time until the example in Matthew 1 above gave us the answer. Possessive successive designations do not create word symbolic threads as the non possessive ones do. But they do substitute as a successive designation does in the word symbolic threads that are created by the non possessive successive designations. In Matthew 1 there are two word symbolic threads which are created by the successive designations...
David, the king
Joseph, the husband of Mary
Jesus, the [one] called Christ.
So in Word 1 verse 1 is:
1 The book of the history of Jesus
son of David, son of Abraham (Matthew 1).
Whereas in Word 2 it is: 1 The book of the history of Christ, son of David, son of Abraham (Matthew 1).
The 3rd and 4th designations for Jesus (son of David and son of Abraham) do not substitute since there is no 3rd of 4th word symbolic thread.
There is a further prophetic form that works in the same way as a Successive Designation, we call it a Double Declaration. The Double Declaration Principle states that:
If any non trivial word is recited twice successively then the pair acts as a Successive Designation.
This is true because plainly the account reads sensibly with either one of the successive declarations missed out. Examples of this prophetic form are:
Truly, truly, I say to you
Impale [him], Impale [him]
So where is the scriptural justification for this outrageous scheme to pervert the scriptures and twist them to our taste, substituting holy words here there and everywhere in accordance with a scheme of men, the puritan asks, and rightly so. Do we not fall foul of the very last words in the book?
Well the last few verses of Revelation 22 have 4 word symbolic threads to them, since our sacrificee and saviour said:
16 I, Jesus, sent my angel to bear witness to you people of these things for the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David, the star, the bright, the morning.
17 And the spirit and the bride keep on saying: Come! And let anyone hearing say: Come! And let anyone thirsting come; let anyone that wishes take life's water free.
18 I am bearing witness to everyone that hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone makes an addition to these [words], God will add to him the plagues that are written in this scroll,
and if anyone takes away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy,
God will take his portion away from the trees of life and out of the holy city,
of the things [good or plagues?] which are written about in this scroll
We looked at these verses in the 3rd proof of the symbolic structure principle above. Literally, for the literal meaning or the event symbolic meaning of an account, no words can be altered. Furthermore some words have been added and removed so that some people will get the plagues and lose their portion from the trees of life and the holy city. But in one of the word symbolic threads, the ambiguous verse 19 should be read:
19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away of the [bad] things [the plagues] which are written about in this scroll, [which come] from the trees of life and out of the holy city (Revelation 22).
Now whereas 'the words of the prophecy of this scroll' stand for the literal and event symbolic meanings of the bible, 'the words of the scroll of this prophecy' stand for the word symbolic threads. So we can and do take away words from these threads and thereby avoid the plagues on Babylon and on mankind in general! (But we cannot add words to them). For the LWs are trees of life individually and a holy city collectively.
Let us apply the Successive Designations Principle to the following made up and non scriptural example:
Sarah, Abraham's wife went shopping with
Hagar, the Egyptian..
Hagar picked up a nice cooking pot
Abraham's wife picked up a bag of rice
Sarah, Abraham's wife, paid for them
She then took her maidservant home
Hagar, the Egyptian boiled the rice in the pot
Her mistress gave the rice to Abraham
Abraham said: What a great meal my wife!
Sarah said: My maidservant cooked it.
Abraham said: My wife and Hagar work well together.
This splits into first and second Word Symbolic accounts as follows:
1st Word Symbolism (1st Word Symbolic thread):
Sarah, went shopping with Hagar
Hagar picked up a nice cooking pot
Sarah picked up a bag of rice
Sarah, paid for them
She then took Hagar home
Hagar, boiled the rice in the pot
Her mistress gave the rice to Abraham
Abraham said: What a great meal my wife!
Sarah said: My maidservant cooked it.
Abraham said: My wife and Hagar work well together.
2nd Word Symbolism (2nd word symbolic thread):
Abraham's wife went shopping with
The Egyptian picked up a nice cooking pot
Abraham's wife picked up a bag of rice
Abraham's wife, paid for them
She then took the Egyptian home
The Egyptian boiled the rice in the pot
Her mistress gave the rice to Abraham
Abraham said: What a great meal!
Abraham's wife said: My maidservant cooked it.
Abraham said: My wife and the Egyptian work well together.
For the whole story on Genesis 16, the first part of the symbolic drama referred to by Paul in Galatians 4, please read . If you actually try and write one of these you will see that the Successive Descriptions Principle is quite restrictive to what the account can say. We had to rewrite the above a few times to get it to work! The account must make sense with all of the substitutions. For example Abraham could not have said: Thanks Hagar! Because then in the second word symbolism he would have said: Thanks the Egyptian! which is nonsense! (Hebrew has no vocative, this problem would not occur in Greek due to the vocative case). So here at last is a grammatical proof of the bible code, and a test for canonicity. For more of this sort of thing - see .
The two great interpreters of dreams in the holy book are Joseph and Daniel. They are the two archetypical bible decoders. Get to know them and you get to know about this amazing code.
12 Forasmuch as an extraordinary spirit and knowledge and insight to interpret dreams and the explanation of riddles and the untying of knots had been found in him, in Daniel, whom the king himself named Belteshazzar. Now let Daniel himself be called, that he may show the very interpretation (Daniel 5).
Daniel chapter 5 has two designations for Belshazzar, the king of Babylon. These are: The King and Belshazzar. In each Word symbolic meaning, Belshazzar stands for someone, the king stands for someone else, and Belshazzar, the king is a double designation which stands for the symbolic meaning of 'Belshazzar' in the first word symbolism and the symbolic meaning of 'The king' in the second. If you do not realise this then the account is all tied up in a knot and you get nowhere. Once you do realise this, then you can untangle the account into its two different Word Symbolic strands. For our imperfect attempt at the untangling of Daniel 5, which you are unlikely to follow as yet! - see .
The classic example of Successive Designation Symbolism is Revelation 12. Here we read:
9 So [down] was hurled the dragon, the great, the serpent,
the archaic, the
one called Devil and the Satan, the one misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the
earth, and his angels were hurled down with him (Revelations 12).
There are 6 designations for Satan in this one verse:
the great [one]
the archaic [one]
the [one] called [the] Devil and the Satan (participle used as an adjective describing a state)
the [one] misleading the entire inhabited earth (participle used as an adjective describing an action).
These are 6 valid designations for the same angel. The reader (and the writer) might at first think that the above is only 4 total designations for Satan, because the sense is, the great dragon, the original serpent, etc. But this is a Word symbolism, and the Greek reads:
O drakwn o megaV
The dragon, the great
It does not read:
The great dragon
Both are acceptable forms in the Greek idiom. In the parable of the sower the Greek has both forms (it has the soil, the fine, and it has the fine soil). And Satan was the great one and the oldest angel, for he was the firstborn angel of God and he had the firstborn covenant until Adam's sin. In the rest of the account we read of the exploits of: The dragon, the devil and the serpent:7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels battled with the dragon [Satan's heavenly organisation], and the dragon and its angels battled (Revelation 12).
15 And the serpent [true religious corruptor] disgorged water like a river from its mouth after the woman, to cause her to be drowned by the river.
1For the kingdom of the heavens is like a man, a householder, who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard (Matthew 20).
So we have a man and a householder. Now the rest of the account refers variously to 'the man', 'the householder', and 'him'. So by the Successive Designations Principle we have two word symbolic threads to Matthew 20 - see .
1Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children; but she had an Egyptian maidservant and her name was Hagar (Genesis 16).
The two successive designations for Sarah, means that there are two Word Symbolic threads in this account - see 
42 And the Lord said: Who really is the faithful steward, the discreet one, whom his master will appoint over his body of attendants to keep giving them their measure of food supplies at the proper time? (Luke 12).
oikonomoV o fronimoV (Luke 12)
The faithful steward, the discreet [one]
The two successive designations for this steward means that there are two Word Symbolic threads in this account - see .
11 Abraham, Abraham (Genesis 22)
2 Jacob, Jacob (Genesis 46)
13 Conspiracy, conspiracy! (2 Chronicles 23)
4 And he said: Moses, Moses (Exodus 3)
22 Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name (Matthew 7)
These double declarations work the same as your regular successive designations. They are merely a special case of Father, Abraham for example. So there are two further Abrahams, two further Jacobs, fathers of 12 tribes, two further impalements, two further conspiracies, two further Moses' etc. In the case of the impalement, the further two are represented by the two robbers impaled one on each side of Jesus. In the case of Moses, Jesus was one greater Moses, and there is another.
If a character or item, represented by a noun, in an account makes two or more non successive appearances with differing descriptors, one of which can be no descriptor, (which descriptors can be adjectives or participles used as adjectives) then all the word symbolic threads have two or more fulfilments of the word symbolic meaning of the noun.
Jesus and Jesus the Galilean are two descriptions of Jesus. Jesus and Lord and the righteous [one] are two designations and a description of both designations. Jesus and Jesus of Nazareth are two descriptions of Jesus. The soil, the fine [soil] is a repeated designation the second of which is a further description of soil.
Definition: A Symbolic Meaning of a word, is a further meaning to the literal meaning which meaning is related to the literal meaning in a symbolic way
Definition: A Fulfilment of a symbolic meaning of a word, is a particular example of that symbolic meaning.
Definition: A word symbolic thread of a subaccount is a word symbolic meaning of the entire sub account.
Definition: A further fulfilment of a word symbolic subaccount is a second temporal occurrence of the word symbolic meaning of that subaccount
The double or triple or quadruple or quintuple description (which we use to mean two, three, four or five successive descriptions), is the second most important prophetic form in the bible (in the sense that it defines the number of fulfilments of the word symbolic threads defined by the successive designations principle). Here is the definition and the effect of this form...
If a character or item, represented by a countable noun, in an account is characterized to by two or more successive descriptors, one of which can be no descriptor and the other of which can be a second and descriptive noun (such as Father or King or God etc.) which descriptors are adjectives, participles used as adjectives describing a state, or descriptive nouns, then all the word symbolic threads have two or more fulfilments to the entire thread relating to the two or more descriptors of that character or item. The first fulfilment temporally of the thread takes only the first description of the countable noun (first in position in the account as written) and substitutes all incidences of the second and the other successive descriptions in the prophetic form which occur in the account including and after the successive description, to be the first description (until any further successive description redefines these substitutions). The second fulfilment temporally of the thread takes only the second description of the countable noun (second in position in the account as written) and substitutes all incidences of the first description and the other successive descriptions in the prophetic form which occur in the account including and after the successive description to be the second description (until any further successive description redefines these substitutions), etc.
There can be many fulfilments of a meaning. For example the meaning Christ, has fulfilments of Jesus, John the baptist, Paul etc. Or if the expression ‘ruler of the Jews’ had the symbolic meaning ‘head of a congregation’, then it would have as many fulfilments as there were congregations. A double description cannot have a pronoun imbalance for the same reasons that a double desgination cannot have one, namely one of the substitutions could introduce a meaningless pronoun into the account.
The faithful and discreet slave (literally: the faithful slave and discreet)
Wicked and adulterous generation
A thief and a plunderer (literally: thief is and plunderer)
The brother of James and John
7 heads of grain, [ones] withered and thin [ones] and [ones] scorched
The God and father of him (The God of him and the father of him)
Lord of Lords and King of Kings
The ugly [ones] and the skinny [ones] (no noun)
The famous example is 'The faithful and discreet slave' of Matthew 24:45. The one word symbolic thread, has two fulfilments which relate to two slaves, a faithful slave and a discreet slave. The two descriptors 'faithful' and 'discreet' define two separate slaves in two separate fulfilments of the one word symbolic meaning - see .
45 Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time? (Matthew 24).
o pistoV doulos kai fronimoV
The faithful slave and discreet
In Luke we have two successive designations for the appointed one: ‘the faithful steward’ and ‘the discreet one’, so we know from the Successive Designations Principle that there are two greater symbolic meanings for the slave in two word symbolic threads.
In Matthew we have one designation: ‘the faithful and discreet slave’. But this designation describes the slave in two ways: faithful & discreet. So we have two successive descriptions of one slave in Matthew and two successive designations for one slave in Luke. Successive designations give further word symbolic meanings, and successive descriptions gives further word symbolic fulfillments.
And look! Using this code here, we have already described the 4 true Christian administrations of Abraham's seed from Jesus' death to Armageddon. The 4 true Christian Religions. We call them FDS1, FDS2, FDS3, FDS4 in this website/book, standing for the first to the fourth Faithful and Discreet Slave. There were two slaves, two true religions in each of the two presences. Matthew refers to FDS1 and FDS3 and Luke refers to FDS2 and FDS4. The apostle Peter was the first head of FDS1, the apostle Paul was the first head of FDS2, these were both in the first presence. Charles Russell, who founded the Watchtower, was the first head of FDS3 (although he was never appointed over all of Jesus' belongings, but the second president of the Watchtower Joseph Rutherford was), and Gordon is the first head of FDS4, the Lords' Witnesses. For more on this - see 
33 So now let Pharaoh look for
a man discreet and wise and set him
over the land of Egypt (Genesis 41).
This was Joseph in the literal meaning, who is described successively as being discreet and wise. In the word symbolic meanings a greater land of Egypt has two further rulers, a discreet one and a wise one - see .
2 And here ascending out of the river Nile were
7 cows beautiful in appearance and
fat-fleshed, and they went feeding among
the Nile grass.
3 And here there were seven other cows ascending after them out of the river Nile, ugly in appearance and thin-fleshed, and they took their stand alongside the cows by the bank of the river Nile (Genesis 41).
Joseph gave us the meaning of the literal dream in the same chapter, which meaning is in fact the event symbolic meaning. He revealed that we should take a cow for a year in that case. But both sets of 7 cows are described successively in two ways: beautiful and fat, ugly and thin. So there are two fulfilments of the cows in this dream in the one word symbolic thread. We have a reasonable but somewhat outdated understanding of this account - see .
If a phrase containing a verb is successively articulated (the two articulations being separated by either nothing or by the word 'and'), then there is a word symbolic thread and the double articulation takes a greater meaning in this and in all word symbolic threads.
Compare this with Joseph's explanation of the meaning of a dream repeated twice (firmly established and speeding to do it). But possibly both verbs must be in the same tense (Revelation 12:2).
8 Now come, write it upon a tablet with them, and inscribe it even in a book, that it may serve for a future day, for a witness to time indefinite (Isaiah 30).
The action of reducing something to writing is successively repeated here. This is the SAP telling us that there are two prophetic fulfillments to the account, which 'serve for a future day'.
17 By the decree of watchers the thing is, and [by] the saying of holy ones the request is (Daniel 4).
We are being told successively in two synonymous ways that the angels decreed this one.
Phrases do not have to be repeated word for word to qualify, but must be conceptually the same in the second recital. Because Amos has said:
3 Will two walk together unless they have met by
4 Will a lion roar in a forest when it has no prey?
Will a young maned lion give forth its voice from its hiding place if it has caught nothing at all?
5 Will a bird fall into a trap on the earth when there is no
snare for it?
Does a trap go up from the ground when it has absolutely caught nothing?
6 If a horn is blown in a city, do not also the people
If a calamity occurs in the city is it not also Jehovah who has acted/caused [it]?
7 For the sovereign Lord Jehovah will not do a thing unless he has revealed his confidential matter/secret to his servants, the prophets
8 There is a lion that has roared! Who will not be afraid?
The sovereign Lord Jehovah himself has spoken who will not prophesy? (Amos 3)
The forest is the hiding place of the lion, the roar is the giving forth of its voice, if it has caught nothing then it has no prey. These repeated concepts in slightly different words are how the sovereign Lord Jehovah reveals his confidential matters, his secrets to his servants the prophets today. A repeated recital does not need to use exactly the same words! Incidentally God causes every calamity and every good thing, being behind it all. But he does not directly cause every calamity or every good thing.
The last creative act of God, on the day that Adam sinned was:
And Jehovah God proceeded to make long garments of skin for Adam
and for his wife and to clothe them (Genesis 3).
The literal meaning is that God was their tailor. One consequence of this is that it is not a sin for women to wear fur coats. Beautiful women who wear fur coats are hated because of Jealousy, not because an animal has been killed purely for its skin. Remember that Adam and Eve were vegetarians when God killed the animal for it's skin to clothe them. But the concept of clothing them is repeated, being recited first in terms of making long garments. So there is a greater way in which God clothed them. This greater way was that he created new bodies for them which instead of being indefinitely long lasting bodies which did not age, as were their previous bodies in the garden, were just long lasting, and were ageing. Adam lived for 930 years (Genesis 5:5). So these new ageing bodies, shorter versions of which we all inhabit today, were their long garments of skin as it were.
8 However, let this one fact not be escaping
your notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a
thousand years as one day (2 Peter 3).
In the literal meaning, God lives forever, and so to him one day is just like 1,000 years. But this phrase is repeated, and so by the Successive Repeated Concept Principle, there is a greater way in which one day is as 1,000 years to God. This greater way is that one day represents 1,000 years in some scriptures.
6 And you must lie upon your right side in the second case, and you
must carry the error of the house of Judah forty days. A day for a year, a day for a
year, is what I have given
you (Ezekiel 4).
In the literal meaning, the 40 days of Ezekiel's laying on his right side represents 40 years or error of the house of Judah. But in the greater meaning, we know that the phrase: 'A day for a year' has a greater meaning. This meaning is that God has given 'a day for a year' to all would be Ezekiel's, 'prophets' who want to interpret the bible. A day for a year is an acceptable substitution and may give you the correct interpretation of any scripture in the symbolic meaning. It is a symbolism that God uses, we are being told.
6 Into their intimate group do not
come, O my soul. With their congregation do not become united, O my disposition, because in
their anger they killed men, and in their arbitrariness they hamstrung bulls.
7 Cursed be their anger, because it is cruel, and their fury, because it acts harshly. Let me parcel them out in Jacob and let me scatter them in Israel (Genesis 49).
11 Tying his full-grown ass to a vine and the descendant of his own she-ass to a choice vine, he will certainly wash his clothing in wine and his garment in the blood of grapes (Genesis 49).
12 The error of Ephraim is wrapped up, his sin is treasured
up (Hosea 13).
If an account contains a series of successive alternatives, then each alternative must occur at least once in at least one word symbolic thread. And if the number of word symbolic threads matches the number of successive alternatives then each and every alternative occurs only once in each and every thread (each threads gets its own alternative).
See 'tribulation or persecution' in the accounts of the sower - .
35 Therefore keep on the watch for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether late in the day (the first watch of the night) or at midnight (the second watch) or at cockcrowing (the third watch) or early in the morning (the fourth watch) (Mark 13).
See 'whether late in the day (the first watch of the night) or at midnight (the second watch) or at cockcrowing (the third watch) or early in the morning (the fourth watch). ' in the account of the slaves appointed by the master - .
If a verb has two or more successive subjects, then the account has two or more fulfilments in total in all the word symbolic threads.
See 'the anxiety of this system of things and the deceptive power of riches choke the word' in the accounts of the sower - .
See 'the rain poured down and the rivers came and the winds blew and struck against that house' in the account of the house built on sand - . This principle appears to be a special case of the Successive Articulations Principle.
If a verbal phrase is articulated twice non successively (separated by a word other than 'and') in one account, then it takes a greater meaning different from the literal meaning in all the word symbolic threads of the account. This greater meaning is a key symbolism in the word symbolic threads. (And there must be at least one word symbolic thread.)
Compare this with Joseph's explanation of the meaning of a dream repeated twice (firmly established and speeding to do it).
12 And Arpachshad life [yx
a noun] 35 year. Then he became father to
13 And after his fathering Shelah, Arpachshad continued to live 3 years and 400 year. Meanwhile he became father to sons and daughters.
27 And the uncircumcised [person] that is such by nature will, by
carrying out the Law, judge you who with its written code [grammatoV]
and circumcision are a transgressor of law (Romans 2).
29 But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and [his] circumcision is that of the heart by spirit, and not by a written
code [grammatoV]. The praise of that one comes, not from men, but from God (Romans 2).
6 who has indeed adequately qualified us to be
ministers of a new covenant, not of a written code [grammatoV], but of
spirit; for the written code [grammatoV] condemns to death, but the spirit makes
alive (2 Corinthians 3).
Paul is saying that literally the law was a 'grammar'. But then a grammar is the code of a language. Now using the bible code itself we see that the greek word 'grammatoV' appears only twice in each of the accounts at Romans 2 and at 2Corinthians 3, so by the repetition principle below, there is a greater GrammatoV, than the law of Moses. There is a greater grammar to the bible. This greater grammar is the grammatical bible code, the grammar of the symbolism of the bible, a symbolic grammar if you like. The point is that these two accounts are both saying that the bible code is a grammatical code. And this indeed is what we have discovered. In a nutshell...
The designations principle and the successive designations principle are the
symbolic grammar of the nouns
The descriptions principle and the successive descriptions principle are the symbolic grammar of the adjectives
The articulations principle and the successive articulations principle are the symbolic grammar of the verbs
Definition: The literal meaning of an account OR the event symbolic meaning of an account AND every word symbolic meaning of an entire account or subaccount combine to make the total number of threads or strands of that account or subaccount.
A literal account has a literal thread and may have one or more word symbolic threads. A non literal account, such as a parable, a vision or a dream, has an event symbolic thread and may also have one or more word symbolic threads. No section of any account has both a literal thread and an event symbolic thread, although an interpretation has one thread which is both literal in some places and event symbolic in others (but not both at once).
All bible accounts obey the following noun count of the countable nouns as defined in the symbolic structure principle section above. These nouns define the word symbolism of the word symbolic threads. The total number of recitals of a countable noun in all of the symbolic subaccounts tells us the number of different meanings that it takes in all of the threads of the symbolic subaccounts (including the literal or event symbolic thread). The total number of recitals of a countable noun in all of the literal subaccounts tells us the number of different meanings that it takes in all of the threads of the literal subaccounts (including the literal or event symbolic thread).
If the noun count of every countable noun in a subaccount is odd, and if that subaccount has no successive designations then it has no word symbolic threads.
If the noun count of one countable noun in a subaccount is even (and that noun takes the same meaning each time it appears in the subaccount), and if that subaccount has no successive designations then it has one word symbolic thread.
If a subaccount has no successive designations but the account it is in has one or more word threads, then the subaccount has one word thread only if it has a word (which will be a countable noun in this or another subaccount) which takes a different meaning in the first word thread (Word1) to its event symbolic meaning..
If a countable noun is recited a total of 2 times in all the symbolic subaccounts of an account, and if the noun has only one event symbolic meaning, then this noun takes a different word symbolic meaning (i.e. a different meaning in the word symbolic thread) to its event symbolic meaning in all the symbolic subaccounts. It takes a total of two symbolic meanings.
If a countable noun is recited a total of 2 times in all the literal subaccounts of an account, and if the noun has only one literal or event symbolic symbolic meaning, then this noun takes a different word symbolic meaning (i.e. a different meaning in the word symbolic thread) to its literal meaning in all the literal subaccounts. It takes a total of two meanings (one literal and one word symbolic).
If a countable noun is recited a total of three times in all the symbolic subaccounts of an account, and if the noun has only one event symbolic meaning, and if at least one symbolic subaccount has at least 3 threads, then it takes a different meaning in each of these threads (one event symbolic and two word symbolic meanings).
If a countable noun is recited a total of three times in all the literal subaccounts of an account, and if the noun has only one literal or event symbolic meaning, and if at least one literal subaccount has at least 3 threads, then it takes a different meaning in each of these threads (one literal and two word symbolic meaning).
In general, if a countable noun is recited a total of n times in all of the symbolic subaccounts of an account and if the largest number of threads of any symbolic subaccount in which it appears is m, and if said noun appears in all m threads of this subaccount after any substitutions, and if it has only one event symbolic meaning, then the largest factor of n that is less than or equal to m is the total number of distinct (event symbolic or word symbolic) meanings that the noun takes globally in all of the strands. Of course any word normally (but not always) only has one literal or symbolic meaning throughout any strand!
In general, if a countable noun is recited a total of n times in all of the literal subaccounts of an account and if the largest number of threads of any literal subaccount in which it appears is m, and if said noun appears in all m threads of this subaccount after any substitutions, and if it has only one literal or event symbolic meaning, then the largest factor of n that is less than or equal to m is the total number of distinct (literal or word symbolic) meanings that the noun takes globally in all of the strands.
Putting this less mathematically: The number of repetitions of a countable noun needs to be divisible by the total number of strands of an account in which the countable noun appears after any substitutions, in order that the noun can take a different symbolic meaning in each strand.
If a countable noun has two literal meanings such as the word 'dead' in the scripture: let the dead bury the dead, or such as the Hebrew word for woman (Xya), which also means 'man' in Deuteronomy 25 etc., and if it is recited only twice, then it has no extra word symbolic meanings. But if it is recited 4 times then it has a further pair of word symbolic meanings etc.
Adjectives have symbolic meanings which are generally dominated by the nouns they
Verbs have symbolic meanings which are generally dominated by nouns.
Adverbs, pronouns, prepositions, conjunctions, etc. are invariant in all symbolisms. They have symbolic meanings which are merely their literal meanings.
Nouns used possessively, such as the word 'Abraham', in the phrase Abraham's wife, do not count as nouns since they are being used as possessive adjectives.
Specifically, since this is a grammatical code...
1. Any noun at all in the genitive in Greek which is being used as an adjective is not counted. Eg: 'Hearing of my words', 'Having occurred of flood' uses 'words' and 'flood' possessively. 'The [one] of Zebedee' uses 'Zebedee' possessively. 'He came into contact with the coffin' has coffin in the genitive in Luke 7, but the genitive case can be used for the ablative in Greek (wonderful isn't it?). So 'coffin' is not used possessively in that case.
2. Nouns in the genitive due to prepositions such as epi, apo are counted
3. Quantifiers such as: Half of (the earth), a 3rd of (the earth) a quarter of (the earth), all of (the earth), every of (the people), one of (the prophets) etc do not turn nouns into adjectives, so the nouns still count even if they are in the genitive (except 'all of' in Hebrew - see 5.).
4. Any noun which is in the absolute preceded by a construct state (and therefore is a possessive adjective) in the Hebrew is not counted. The Hebrew 'construct' '-la' meaning 'to', being the 'construct' of 'la', meaning 'towards', which is a preposition, does not turn a noun into a possessive adjective (we think due to 'Joseph' in Genesis 40). In fact as is the case in Greek, no Hebrew preposition in the construct makes its absolute noun into a possessive adjective and therefore makes it uncountable.
5. The construct '-lk', meaning all of, or the whole of, being the proper construct of '-llk', meaning 'to complete', which is not a preposition, does turn a noun into a possessive adjective.
6. As in the case of successive designations, Hebrew nouns with pronoun suffixes (husband-of-her, maidservant-of-me etc.) are not countable 'because they are not plain nouns'. In general Hebrew Prepositions which are in the construct state, do not cause the succeeding absolute to be a genitive.
7. The words: Jehovah and God only ever mean Jehovah and God, for any further meaning would be symbolic idolatry!
This rather mathematical definition can be summed up in the following look up table:
|Number of recitals of countable noun||Number of threads of account||Number of literal or symbolic meanings of the countable|
It is important to realise that the number of recitals of a noun used as a noun governs the number of symbolic meanings that it takes in the different threads, but does not govern the number of fulfilments of these symbolic meanings that it might take.
14 For God speaks once and twice - though one does not regard it (Job 33).
Joseph says referring to the two similar dreams of Pharaoh:32 And the fact that the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice means that the thing is firmly established on the part of the [true] God, and the [true] God is speeding to do it (Genesis 41). 32 And so to repeat the dream to Pharaoh two times, because being decided upon by the God and being soon to do him (Genesis 41 - NIVHEOT Hebrew Interlinear Bible)
But the whole bible is a dream, in the sense that bible writers spoke under inspiration not from their subconscious mind but from God. So what Joseph is saying is:
If any inspired scripture is repeated twice then, the thing is decided upon by God and God will do it soon.
Our first interpretation of this verse, which is quite obviously explaining the meaning of a repeated scripture in an account, was that a repetition meant a further meaning. This was pretty much a correct interpretation.
If two symbolic subaccounts describe the same set of events then they share their noun counts. One simply adds the noun counts for both subaccounts and this count determines the number of symbolic meaning that each countable noun takes in all of the threads of both subaccounts. Likewise if two literal subaccounts describe the same set of events then they share their noun counts. This is covered in more detail in the parallel account principle below. The situation is more interesting with an interpretational subaccount.
Interpretations are literal explanations of event symbolisms in their literal meaning. So their noun count is added to the narrative noun count only.
For a simple example of this have a look at the account of the dreams and interpretations of the cupbearer and the baker in Genesis 40 - .
Jesus actually confirms our current understanding of the Repetition Principle and the correct interpretation of Joseph’s explanation of a repetition in Matthew 13:24-30, in the account of the wheat and the weeds. He gives the word symbolic interpretation of 6 repeated nouns and of the non repeated word 'reapers' - see .
Have a look a sections , , , , , , , , , , , , . We have applied the latest 9th generation code to most of these accounts.
13 Consequently the Egyptians made the sons of Israel slave under
14 And they kept making their life bitter with hard slavery at clay mortar and bricks and with every form of slavery in the field. Yes, every form of slavery of theirs in which they used them under tyranny (Exodus 1).
This is just included to show the reader how repetitive a bible account can be!
2 Now the earth proved to be formless and waste, and there was darkness on the surface of the deep, and God’s spirit was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters (Genesis 1).
The 'surface' of the deep is a repeated word. The literal meaning is the surface of the seas on the earth, the symbolic meaning is the faces or the characters of the angels in the heavens (the Hebrew word translated surface, means face). For Genesis 1 is not just the story of the creation of the earth and of men, it is also the story of the creation of the heavens and of the angels (in the word symbolic meaning), like it says in the first line of the bible: even the first 7 Hebrew words:
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1).
Then we read:
2 Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep. And God's active force was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters (Genesis 1).
Then God said:
3 Let there be light. Then there was light (Genesis 1).
This is a big scripture, and it is the second example of a repeated phrase in the bible, the existence of light being repeated.
Firstly it was said after the earth had been created, since we have already read how there was darkness on the surface of the oceans in verse 2. The literal meaning of this statement is therefore a second physical creation of physical light. Because we know that light was around before the earth was created.
But the symbolic meaning, the greater meaning, is actually the creation of a spiritual form of illumination which is time. This creation of time, was the means by which God could hold his angels to account. For without time, angels could misbehave and then ‘undo’ their works in some sense. But time is what condemns bad works and praises good works. This big bang therefore illuminated the faces of the angels (not that they have physical faces), but their characters were exposed. Hence we read:
5 After that God saw that the light was good, and God brought about a division between the light and the darkness. And God began calling the light Day and the darkness he called Night. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a first day (Genesis 1).
The light shows up good and bad. Light representing good and darkness representing bad. The symbolism of the account of the first ‘day’ of creation of Genesis 1 is:
God’s heavenly administration
Surface of Waters
Characters of angels
So our two repeated phrases: the surface of the waters, and the existence of light, are the two key symbolisms of the account. The former means the characters of the angels and the latter means the creation of Time, which from our knowledge of Physics was the creation of space time, i.e. it was the Big Bang.
Now we are in a position to try and solve the problems of modern physics and the dilemma of the Big Bang not producing enough background radiation and the universe being unstable with only one constant speed of light from the Big Bang until today. And we are in a position to discredit the erroneous belief that the universe has been around for billions of years. There have been at least two forms of light in the history of the universe. The universe was created with one form of light and then before man came along another form of light was created. Putting this in simple terms, the universe was created in warp drive and then light slowed down to 300 million metres per second just before man appeared (actually to trap man in his playpen, the solar system, until he grew up). Yes the speed of light is a constant. But it is a constant set by God. A constant that was reset by the command:
Let there be light.
It might have been 300 billion or 300 trillion or 300 billion trillion metres per second before this command. Amen. For a fuller account of this, and a brief history of light, see section . God will reset the speed of light again in the future to enable us to reach every star in the universe, like Anakim Skywalker said. But he will not do this until we have grown up. It is not man who will invent warp drive in order to beat God. It is God who invented it in order to create the universe and in order to teach us. It is God who took the universe out of warp drive, for us, and for the angels, since they learn through us, and we through them, for they are our brothers. For we are moral minors and technological teenagers. It is no coincidence that one cannot explain this fundamental feature of the universe without admitting the existence of God.
This sort of realisation is the power of the Repetition Principle.
The Repetition Principle can be deduced to some extent from the Power Principle. Because if a phrase is repeated in an account, then it has no power in the literal meaning, because it is saying nothing new. The only way for it to have power is for it to mean something different in the greater meaning. So by the Power Principle, this must be the case. It must indeed have a greater meaning in the greater meaning.
2 In the midst of the years oh bring it to life, in the midst of the years may you make it known (Habakkuk 3).
Now in the literal meaning we have his resurrection and his death in the midst of 'the years'. In the Word symbolic meaning, since the phrase 'in the midst of the years' is repeated, it has a different meaning to that which it has in the literal meaning.
Now the Hebrew word for 'midst' is brq which can mean either amongst or middle. So in the literal meaning it must mean one and in the symbolic meaning the other. So however you look at it, Jesus died and was resurrected in the middle of 'the years'. For the full story see - The Midst Prophecy.
There are no coincidences in the bible. Every apparent coincidence is appointed by God20 As regards whatever our hearts may condemn us in, because God is greater than our hearts and knows all things (1 John 3).
Since God knows all things he is aware in particular of all of the coincidences in the bible. Since he is not given to deliberately misleading us (unless it is in our interest), we must assume that such scriptural similarities are a matter of design, rather than coincidence. The prophet Amos is saying:3 Will two walk together unless they have met by appointment?
18 And Jehovah God went on to say: It is not good for the man to continue by himself. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him (Genesis 2). 26 But the helper, the holy spirit, which the Father will send in my name, that one will teach you all things and bring back to your minds all the things I told you (John 14).
We know that it is not a coincidence that God himself called Adam’s wife his helper, and that John called the holy spirit a helper. It means that the holy spirit is someone’s wife. Well if God is our father then we must also have a mother. Paul identifies his mother as the Jerusalem above:
26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother
So the Jerusalem above is God's wife obviously, and so it is the Holy spirit. But the Jerusalem above is just God's administration of all of his loyal heavenly people. Just as the Jerusalem below was his administration of all of his loyal earthly people at one time. So the Holy spirit is all of God's holy angels, it is all of the holy spirits. So there it is, the precise identity of the Holy Spirit, from the No Coincidence Principle.
The Holy Spirit is a living group of beings, it is not a force as some religions (such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses) believe, because it pleads for us:
26 In like manner the spirit also joins in with help for our weakness; for the [problem of] what we should pray for as we need to we do not know, but the spirit itself pleads for us with groanings unuttered (Romans 8:26).
Who ever heard of a force that pleads? No, it is our mother who pleads with our father, God, for her children! It is so beautiful. She is no part of a mysterious trinity as most of Christendom would have us believe. She is all of the holy angels who are sealed. She is none other than the first lady of the heavens. And the trinity doctrine was designed by Satan and fed to unreasoning men and women to hide her beauty from us, due to his jealousy. Because he was born without her help, he never had a mother.
But with clear thinking and with eyes of faith we can see our mother's face. For her's is the face that launched a billion angelic ships for our spirits to sail in. And as regards beauty, her face would bring tears to the cheeks of Helen of Troy herself if only she could see it. So who can forgive us for the outrageous lies that we swallow?
For example, the sect of Nicolaus is mentioned in the counsel to Ephesus and to Pergamum in Revelation 3. The only other mention of his name is as one of the 7 ministerial servants in Acts 6:
5 And the thing spoken was pleasing to the whole multitude, and they selected Stephen, a man full of faith and holy spirit, and Philip and Prochorus and Nicanor and Timon and Parmenas and Nicolaus, a proselyte of Antioch (Acts 6).
6 Still, you do have this, that you hate the deeds of the sect of Nicolaus, which I also hate (Revelation 2).
This is not a coincidence. God is fully aware of this situation. It may not of necessity be the case that the Nicolaus of Acts 6 develops for himself a sect, but it is the case that we can learn about the sect by reading Acts 6, it is of help to us. If it is not literally of help, then it is symbolically or cryptically of help.
The phrase 'n times' in an account can
stand for can mean '360n times' in the greater meaning
The phrase 'n times' in an account can stand for can mean 'n/360 times' in the greater meaning
The phrase 'n times' in an account can stand for can mean 'n/30 times' in the greater meaning.
We deduce this from the following scriptures...
22 according to the days on which the Jews had rested from their enemies and the month that was changed for them from grief to rejoicing and from mourning to a good day, to hold them as days of banqueting and rejoicing and sending of portions to one another and of gifts to the poor people (Esther 9).
19 He has made the moon for appointed times. The sun itself knows well where it sets (Psalm 104).
34 By the number of the days that you spied out the land,
40 days, a day for a year, a day for a year, you will answer for your
errors 40 years, as you must know what my being estranged means (Numbers 14).
6 ...And you must lie upon your right side in the second case, and you must carry the error of the house of Judah 40 days. A day for a year, a day for a year, is what I have given you (Ezekiel 4)
The phrase: a day for a year a day for a year, is not just saying take a day for a year. For if it was then the second recital should be powerless. It is saying two things. To see what these are consider the two phrases below...
Take 7 days a day for a year and you get 7 years.
In the first phrase we substituted a day to be a year. In the second we substituted a year to be a day. These are the two meanings of the phrase: A day for a year, a day for a year. The twin recital is telling us that the substitution can work either way in the greater meaning. In Daniel4 we take a day to be a year - see U120. In 1Samuel11 we take a year to be a day - see U271c.
We read in Revelation 12:
14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place; there is where she is fed for a time and times and half a time away from the face of the serpent (Revelation 12).
Where ‘times’ is obviously in the plural (since Greek has no dual number as Hebrew does). But earlier in the same chapter we read:
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days (Revelation 12).
In the actual vision, (but not in it’s symbolic meaning) the two periods are the same period and so we are being told by holy spirit that the phrase ‘a time, times and half a time’ is 1260 days of the BLC (Biblical Lunar Calendar), which is 3.5 lunar years of 360 days. But a year is a time, a cycle, of the earth around the sun. So 3.5 years is 3.5 times. So 3.5 times is 1260 days. So 7 times is 2520 days. So n times is 360n days in this case. But in fact a time can be either one revolution of the earth on its axis (a day) or of the moon around the earth (a month) or of the earth around the sun (a year) - see the Numerical and Times Principles.
In Daniel chapter 4, Nebuchadnezzar, who is the King of Babylon and the King of God's people the Jews, who are prisoners in Babylon, is removed from his throne for a period of 'seven times' and then he is re instated as King. The phrase ‘seven times’ appears several times in the account:
16 Let its heart be changed from that of mankind, and let the heart of a beast be given to it, and let seven times pass over it (Daniel 4). 32 And from mankind they are driving even you away, and with the beasts of the field your dwelling will be. Vegetation they will give even to you to eat just like bulls, and seven times themselves will pass over you, until you know that the Most High is Ruler in the kingdom of mankind, and that to the one whom he wants to he gives it (Daniel 4).
This period of 7 times is 2520 days in the literal meaning, 7 Biblical Lunar years. So Nebuchadnezzar was a foreign king over God's exiled people who lost his kingship over them and over his own people and then regained it after 2520 days.
Now God ceased having a vassal king that represented him over his people sometime before Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem and burnt the temple in 586Ab10 BC (13th August). In fact the first king over the Jews who did not represent God was Jehoiakim who acceded sometime between 608 Tishri BC (September/October) and 607 Elul (August/September), in fact it was on 608Chislev10 (13th November) - see . So the last agricultural year of God's Kingship started in 608Tishri, and the first agricultural year without God as king over the seed of Abraham started on 607Tishri1 (23rd September). Jehoiakim was appointed by Pharaoh Nechoh of Egypt and was a vassal of his, see - The Chronology from Solomon to Zedekiah.
So the big question for God's people as prisoners in the foreign land of Babylon, having been deported there by Nebuchadnezzar after he burnt Jerusalem and Solomon's temple, is not how long will it be until we get Nebuchadnezzar back as our king? But, it is rather, how long will it be after God ceased being our king, before he again becomes our king through a vassal King who actually represents him?
It is this period that has been taken as the greater meaning of Daniel chapter 4 by many Second Adventists, who realised of course that the vassal King that the Most High God wants to give the kingdom of mankind to at the end of this period of Kingship malediction is Jesus. This appointment is then possibly the 'second coming' or the 'second presence' of the Christ. The Watchtower originally thought that the end of this period would be Armageddon (not unreasonably on the basis of Daniel 4 alone).
Historically, what 'second adventists' have done is to take Nebuchadnezzar to represent: God's vassal king over his people. They then say that the 2520 day period, which represents the time during which God does not have a vassal king over his people, is obviously way too short and so should be taken at 'a day for a year', using the Times Substitution Principle of the Code. Therefore, the period during which God's people do not have a vassal king representing God over them is 2520 years long.
This would mean that Jesus becomes God's vassal king over his people in 1914Tishri, 2520 years after 607Tishri1 (there was no 0 BC, it went 1BC then 1AD). Incidentally, no religion on this earth until the Lords' Witnesses has had the correct Chronology for the kings or the correct understanding of whom the last vassal king of Judah representing God was. We must credit the Reverend John Brown and Ed Schnopp for their major roles in this understanding. Please see . Ed Schnopp's treatise on the Gentile Times can be found on www.freeminds.org/history/gentile.htm
In fact Jesus did become God's vassal king in heaven over God's true people, who were no longer physical Jews, but by now had become Christians, but were all Abraham's true seed, sons of the First and Second Abrahamic Covenants, baptised by an Elijah into the 2AC, who came first, before Jesus came again, in 1914Tishri15 (7th October), as we shall see. This Elijah was actually Charles Russell, the founder of the Watchtower (see later).
11And they began to question him, saying: Why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?
The problem with the naive interpretation of the symbolic Nebuchadnezzar as being God's vassal king over Abraham's true seed, who is Jesus at the end of the 2520 year period, is that Daniel says to him:27 Therefore, O king, may my counsel seem good to you, and remove your own sins by righteousness, and your iniquity by showing mercy to the poor ones. Maybe there will occur a lengthening of your prosperity (Daniel 4).
The solution to this problem is to realise that the 7 Prophetic Times fulfillment is a Word symbolism and so we have the latitude to assign a different symbolic meaning to each designation for King Nebuchadnezzar.
'Lord of me', and 'My Lord the king' do not suffer any passages in the account which cannot apply to Jesus. Daniel 4 is the account of the loss and regaining of several kingships over God's people. We are not going into them here however. The purpose of the above was to show how the Designations Principle is necessary to find the true interpretation of Daniel 4. However there is a scripture in Ezekiel which shows us that God's kingship over his people is ruined three times. It is:25 And as for you, Oh profane, wicked chieftain/prince of Israel, whose day has come in the time of the error of [the] end,
So the crown comes off, when the head one is not a king (from God's standpoint). Three greater ruins, are made of the kingship: a ruin, a ruin, a ruin, using the Successive Repeated Designation Principle. The one with the legal right is Jesus in the literal meaning.
There is an independent confirmation that 2520 years is the correct symbolic interpretation of Daniel 4 to be found in Leviticus 26 - see . This is a contract under the law of Moses between God and the whole Nation of Israel collectively. One of the penalties for breaking this contract was a 2520 year Kingship Malediction on God's people, wherein God did not act as King over the sons of Abraham, who are enlarged to mean under through either of his first two covenants - see . The 2520 year penalty is a sevenfold retribution for a 360 year combined idolatry error of both the houses of Israel and Judah added together, which is deduced from Ezekiel 4. In this chapter the Holy Spirit tells us to interpret the actions of the prophet taking a day for a year. So it is not unreasonable to interpret the actions of King Nebuchadnezzar, which being in the bible are prophetic, in the same way. So that his 2520 day loss of kingship stands for a 2520 year loss of kingship, as we have seen above.
The phrase 'n times' can be 360n years in a bible account.
The phrase ‘x times’ in the bible can mean 360x years. When it does, these 360 year periods are called Prophetic Times. Amazingly this is where mankind in general and the Jehovah’s Witnesses in particular have been blind.
The JWs know that ‘x times’ means 'x periods of 360 years' in Daniel chapter 4, and so do many other Christian and Jewish religions and theologians. But no one ever thought of applying this 'key' to any other incidence of the phrase ‘x times’ in the bible. This is because people who understood the symbolism of Daniel 4, did not believe that the bible was in a code. Technically no one had grasped the Consistency Principle of the code.
This is of course the same mistake that bible scholars and the Watchtower have made in the case of all greater meanings. They believe that Daniel 4 has a greater meaning, they know from Paul's words in Galatians 4:24 that Genesis 16 has a greater meaning, but they have failed to realise that perhaps Daniel 5 or perhaps Genesis 17 and just maybe every other chapter in the bible has a greater meaning too! This is again because these people did not see that the bible was written in a code, and technically no one had grasped the Symbolic Structure Principle. Why did no one ask the question:
If Daniel 4 has a greater symbolic meaning, then does Daniel 5 have one too? Would this have been a giant leap of inordinate intellectual perspicacity? Look what the good book has to say on this matter:
10 For upon you men Jehovah has poured a spirit of deep sleep, and he closes your eyes, the prophets, and he has covered even your heads, the visionaries.
Those who do know writing today are the modern day Pharisees, the elders of the third true church (now a false church). They cannot see the meaning of the book, which is the bible, because they are asleep with a bag over their heads. But the one who does not know writing, who has not been taught in the pharisaical schools for leaders in the Watchtower, this one does not say that he is unable. So we deduce that he is able. He stands for the leader of the 4th true congregation. The first members of this congregation were Gordon, Tony and later Massoud.
Gordon and Tony, two Lords' Witnesses, when there were only two of us (although Gordon does not think that Tony and Massoud were baptised until 1994Elul), grasped this bible key in February/March 1992, just after the Watchtower joined the United Nations as an NGO, thereby committing the transgression that causes them desolation of Daniel 8, and becoming part of the harlot riding the beast of Revelation 17. Gordon and Tony then charged through the bible substituting '360 years' for 'times' everywhere, and deduced the following:
|Daniel 4:25||, |
|John 5:2 (5 Collonades)|||
|1 Chronicles 21:12
(3 days, months, years)
|Genesis 45:6,7 Not proved||Not proved|
|Genesis 4:24, Matthew 18:22
(77 times compared to 7 times)
|Vaguely covered in |
|Luke 12:54,55||Not covered in website|
The rest of our early understandings, many of which were wrong, are in 'Letter to the Society'.
The reason that the Watchtower never worked this out in scriptural terms is that God blinded them because they lost their love for him. For their founder Charles Russell was not the Laodicean Messenger, as is inscribed on his gravestone, but was in fact the Ephesian messenger (see [15,16]), the angel of the first congregation of the second presence (which he believed would be the last). And the counsel to him from Jesus was:4 Nevertheless I hold this against you, that you lost the love you had at first (Revelation 2).
Isaiah prophesies that the JWs will become blind and deaf:
10 You are my witnesses, is the utterance of Jehovah: Even my servant whom I have chosen, in order that you may know and have faith in me, and that you may understand that I am the same One. Before me there was no God formed, and after me there continued to be none.
18 Hear, you deaf ones; and look forth to see, you blind ones.
This is why Jesus said to Peter:
37 And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter: Simon, are you sleeping? Did you not have strength to keep on the watch one hour? (Mark 14).
The reason that the Watchtower did not see these in psychological terms was because Russell set the goals of the Society as follows:
The work in which the Lord has been pleased to use our humble talents has been less a work of origination than of reconstruction, adjustment, harmonisation (Kingdom Proclaimers).
An honest and humble appraisal (although saying that you’re humble in circumstances where humility is considered to be a virtue is more immodest than it is humble!!) But why should the past restrict the future? Why should Charles Russell cut short the hand of God in that way. Is there anything that is too extraordinary for him? Jesus thought not:36 And he went on to say: Abba, Father, all things are possible to you; remove this cup from me. Yet not what I want, but what you want (Mark 14).
This is rather like a motivational speech very well given by Will Carling about the British Lions at an Amway conference that Gordon Attended. The Lions set as their goal, a place in the Final of the World Cup in South Africa. And they got there. And then they lost the final because they had not set the winning of that match as their goal.
Russell was not the first Adventist to realise that Daniel 4 related to a period of 2520 years. Neither was he the first to get the start date of 607 correct. But he was the first and only Adventist to get the end date of this period absolutely correct to the Hebrew month 1914Tishri and to set up a religion which had the guts to declare it, guts which they have now lost, along with their faith and their love. The incredible thing is that he did this believing that Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadnezzar in 606 BC, when it in fact fell in 586. He worked things backwards from 536Tishri, a false date for the end of either of the two 70 year land Sabbath exiles. He did not even know there were two of them! Basically he made a series of mistakes and yet got the right answer. Now there is the activity of the holy spirit and the love of our God ! For the history of the main second adventist prophecy - see .
But what Russell did absolutely marvelously was to adopt the following crucial philosophy for bible research, although it is a matter of faith and logic as well. He proposed that:
The way to test your interpretation, is not against doctrines of churches but against all other scriptures relating to the subject matter of your interpretation. When you have harmonised them all then you have God’s interpretation.
He was not the first to have this idea either (Isaac Newton had it for example). God very rarely gives us the whole picture in one piece. He prefers to give us jigsaws. This we have made a principle of the code called the Jigsaw Principle!
A given number of living or inanimate items in a bible account can stand symbolically for that number of 'Times'.
A 'Time' can stand literally or symbolically for a day, a month or a year.
14 And God went on to say: Let luminaries come to be in the expanse of the heavens to make a division between the day and the night; and they must serve as signs and for seasons and for days and years (Genesis 1).
The planetary luminaries of the Sun and the moon define years and months. The earth itself defines 'days', although it is the rotation with respect to the Sun that we actually see. So a day is one time of the earth around itself. A month is one time of the moon around the earth. A year is one time of the earth around the Sun. All three are ‘times’ of revolution, cycles. These are God’s celestial time pieces. In scientific terms a 'time' is a 'cycle'.
So in the bible a ‘time’ can mean a day a month or a year.
19 He has made the moon for appointed times. The sun itself knows well where it sets (Psalm 104).
The penalty that God prescribed through Gad, to David, for his part in the registration sin was:
11Accordingly Gad went in to David and said to him: This is what Jehovah has said: Take your pick,
All three penalties were '3 times' in duration, and they prefigure the three times of the temple times - see . These times were, days, months and years.
Joseph, the 11th son of Jacob whose name was changed to Israel, was sold into slavery by his brothers and ended up in prison in Egypt with the chief of the bakers and the chief of the cupbearers of Pharaoh. The chief of the cupbearers dreamed about three twigs, and the chief of the bakers dreamed about three baskets. Joseph interpreted these parts of their dreams as follows:
As regards the cupbearer:
Then Joseph said to him: This is its interpretation: The 3 twigs are 3 days (Genesis 40:12).
As regards the baker:
So Joseph, the first bible decoder recorded in the holy book, is telling us that a given number of twigs or baskets can stand for a given number of days or times or cycles. Then Pharaoh himself had one dream about 7 fat cows and 7 thin cows (this was not a dream about women), and then a second dream about 7 fat ears of grain and 7 thin ears of grain. Guess how Joseph interpreted these parts of these dreams:26 The 7 good cows are 7 years. Likewise the 7 good ears of grain are 7 years. The dream is but one (Genesis 41).
So the 7 cows and the 7 ears of grain were 7 years or 7 times or 7 cycles. So a cow or an ear of grain or a twig or a basket can be a time which can be a day or a year. Now we apply the all powerful Consistency Principle, and it is not hard to generalise this to:
A given number of living or inanimate things in a bible account can stand for that number of times, i.e. days or months or years
27 Who of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his life span? (Matthew 6).
Well a cubit is a measure of length, but Jesus here uses it as a time. He is in fact giving us the numerical principle of bible interpretation. He who is anxious about the things of the Lord, a son of Mary, one who pays attention even to one cubit, the height of the Tsohar, realises that it adds something to the lifespan of the sons of Adam. In fact it takes one day (a day for a cubit) to be raptured out of the ark.
The 1.1 million men drawing sword of 1Chronicles21 and 2 Samuel24 - see U40.
38 Then Jesus turned and, getting a view
of them following, he said to them: What are you looking for? They said to him: Rabbi,
which means, when translated, Teacher, where are you staying?
39 He said to them: Come, and you will see. Accordingly they went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day; it was about the 10th hour.
40 Andrew the brother of Simon Peter was one of the 2 that heard what John said and followed [Jesus].
41 First this one found his own brother, Simon, and said to him: We have found the Messiah which means, when translated, Christ.
42 He led him to Jesus. When Jesus looked upon him he said: You are Simon the son of John; you will be called Cephas which is translated Peter.
43 The next day he desired to depart for Galilee. So Jesus found Philip and said to him: Be my follower (John 1).
7 and said to him: Go wash in the pool of Siloam which is translated 'Sent forth'. And so he went off and washed, and came back seeing (John 9).
36 So Joseph, who was surnamed Barnabas by the apostles, which means, when translated, Son of Comfort, a Levite, a native of Cyprus (Acts 4).
36 But in Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which, when translated, means Dorcas. She abounded in good deeds and gifts of mercy that she was rendering (Acts 9)
8 But Elymas, the sorcerer that, in
fact, is the way his name is translated began opposing them, seeking to turn
the proconsul away from the faith (Acts 13).
These are all the incidences of words that are translated by the holy spirit for us from Hebrew/Aramaic into Greek. There are 7 translations in all. There are all translation of nouns. Many of them give the meaning of a name. Now let us be logical about this. These translations are not in the bible to help us make those translations. Everyone knows that the Messiah is translated as the Christ and the Rabbi is Teacher. The bible is not helping us linguistically here. This is the holy spirit telling us how to decode the bible. It is helping us interpretationally. When we decode an account, the literal meanings of the Hebrew names of the Characters tell us about who these characters are in the greater meaning of the account. For example...
1 And Nahash
Ammonite [of the people] [the
internal corruptor of the Watchtower] proceeded to go up and camp against Jabesh in Gilead [dried
up place in Witness heap] [Watchtower
after it lost its water baptism]. At that all the men of Jabesh [saints
in the Watchtower] said to Nahash: Conclude a covenant with us that
we may serve you [enter into an idolatrous
agreement which starts the contest of 1Kings18] (1Samuel11) [For
more see U271c]
Later in this account 300,000 sons of Israel are registered in Bezek. The word 'Bezek' means lightning which is a form of fire from the heavens. The number of men, when correctly interpreted, using the numerical principle above tells us when fire will come from the heavens.
The larger point here is not just this particular element of the code but that these scriptures are telling us that the bible is written in a code and are helping us to decode it. For translation read interpretation. These scriptures, since they only translate nouns, confirm that the symbolism is all in the nouns.
A church doctrine is correct only if it satisfies every scripture in the bible relating to the subject of the doctrine.
God very rarely gives us the whole picture in one account. Normally one has to piece together information from different accounts to get the full picture. But when one has logically harmonised one’s interpretations of every scripture on a given subject then one has the true interpretation and the true understanding of that subject. This is the best way to work out congregational doctrine etc. This principle follows from the Consistency Principle, because if the bible was inconsistent in the literal meaning, then it would be of no use. But it is consistent as far as we are aware. There may be some errors in the best manuscripts we have today, but God is aware of them and they will be corrected if this is necessary, possibly by the bible code itself!
Many false religions have been founded on one or two scriptures and have ignored this principle. By a false religion we mean one which claims that their baptised members have their sins forgiven by God, but actually they do not. We mean a religion incapable of baptising its members into the First or the Second Abrahamic Covenants.
Charles Russell, who founded the Watchtower said:
A God that would use his power to create human beings whom he foreknew and pre-destinated should be eternally tormented, could be neither wise, just nor loving. His standard would be lower than that of many men (Kingdom Proclaimers).
He was credited by many as the man who put out the fire in hell! He did this by comparing all of the scriptures relating to:
Gehenna (The Greek word properly translated as 'Hell')
Sheol (The Hebrew word properly translated as 'The Grave')
Hades (The Greek word properly translated as 'The Grave')
The Greek word for Hell is Gehenna (geenna). Gehenna is the Greek for the Hebrew: Geh Hinnom, which means the valley of Hinnom, which was a valley directly over the south wall of Jerusalem. This valley was the burial place for the dead of the city.
‘To avoid pestilence…constant fires were kept burning there’ (William D Mounce, Analytical Lexicon to Greek NT).6 And he himself made his own sons pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and practiced magic and used divination and practiced sorcery and made spiritistic mediums and professional foretellers of events. He did on a grand scale what was bad in the eyes of Jehovah, to offend him (2 Chronicles 33). 31 And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, in order to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire, a thing that I had not commanded and that had not come up into my heart.
So it is a burning burial ground. This prophecy was fulfilled in destruction of Jerusalem by Titus as described by Josephus. They ran out of space in Gehenna, and piled up the corpses in large houses in the city, around 600,000 were thrown out of the gates of the city by 70Tammuz1, during the last siege of Jerusalem according to the Jewish Historian Josephus - who was at the siege (The complete works of Josephus can be downloaded from this site (www.bibledecoded.com) or purchased from bookshops).
Scriptures which indicate that we do roast in Hell:
43 And if ever your hand makes you stumble, cut it off; it is finer for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands to go off into Gehenna, into the fire that cannot be put out (Mark 9).
10 And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulphur, where both the wild beast and the false prophet [already were]; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever (Revelation 20).
5 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten (Ecclesiastes 9).
3 Do not put your trust in
nobles, Nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs.
4 His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish (Psalm 146).
For the rest of this Jigsaw please see [13a].
Newton returned to the works of the men who had formulated Trinitarianism: Athanasius (Anaesthesius might have been a better name for him), Gregory Nazienzen, Jerome, Augustine.... The conviction possessed him that a massive fraud, which began in the 4th and 5th centuries, had perverted the legacy of the early church (Life of Isaac Newton - Richard Westfall).
Isaac Newton by Michael White is another
good biography. The Trinity doctrine was debated and adopted by the early
church at the church council of Nicaea in 325 AD. The debate was between Arius
who opposed it and Athanasius who proposed it. Arius lost the debate and the
corruption started. Newton discovered that this fraud extended to deliberate
corruptions of the bible itself. So that the King James version of 1 John 5:7
even today is:
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one (1 John 5 - King James Version).
Newton observed that: It is not read thus in the Syrian bible. Not by Ignatius, Justin, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Origen, Athanas, Nazanianzen...Augustine, Beda and others.
The Greek Interlinear version is:
7 Because there are three giving testimony (1 John 5 - UBS 3rd edition, Nestle Aland 26th edition)
The underlined part in the King James Version of 1 John 5:7 above is therefore a fraudulent addition to the Holy Scriptures by, well, Satan basically.
Newton found a second corrupted text at 1 Timothy 3:16. The KJV has:
16 And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory (1 Timothy 3 - KJV).
The word 'God' is not in the original Greek, rather it is 'Who'. The Greek Interlinear version is:
16 And confessedly great is the mystery of godliness: Who was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in spirit, was seen by angels, was proclaimed among Gentiles, was believed in [the] world, was taken up in glory (1 Timothy 3 UBS 3rd Edition, Nestle Aland 26th Edition).
The Catholic Encyclopedia, the trinity section of which can be found at: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15047a.htm defines the trinity as follows:
The Trinity is the term employed to signify the central doctrine of the Christian religion -- the truth that in the unity of the Godhead there are Three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, these Three Persons being truly distinct one from another. Thus, in the words of the Athanasian Creed:
"The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God."
In this Trinity of Persons the Son is begotten of the Father by an eternal generation, and the Holy Spirit proceeds by an eternal procession from the Father and the Son. Yet, notwithstanding this difference as to origin, the Persons are co-eternal and co-equal: all alike are uncreated and omnipotent. This, the Church teaches, is the revelation regarding God's nature which Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came upon earth to deliver to the world: and which she proposes to man as the foundation of her whole dogmatic system.
This is illogically defined and therefore not defined and therefore non existent. There are 3 inconsistencies in the definition:
1. That God is three independent beings who are one being
2. Jesus is God and the father is God. So the Father is the Son
3. The Son is uncreated
|1||It is not possible for three oranges to be one orange.|
|2||It is not possible for a Father to be a Son, this contradicts the definitions of both father and son. The son is defined as an offspring of a father not an 'onspring' as it were.|
|3||Sons are by definition created by their fathers, a son cannot be uncreated.|
Basically the Trinity is defined as a number that is both less than two and more than two. Obviously there is no such number. The Trinity is like a hotel in North London which is situated South of the Thames. Obviously there is no such hotel. But when the poor uneducated, logically uninitiated, spiritually naive, churchgoer complains, saying: How can this be? He is told by his priest: Aha! that is the mystery of God. God can put a hotel which is in North London in a South London postcode. God can make a number that is larger than 2 actually be less than 2. At which point the poor naive churchgoer gives up and says to himself. Wow! I will never understand God, I had better leave the understanding of him to my priest. This of course is the precise effect that the priest wants. Now he can continue to play God to his congregation.
The first man to translate the bible from Latin into English was John Wycliffe, whose translation came out in 1382 (www.wycliffe.org/history/jwycliff.htm). John Wycliffe was an Oxford Professor, he also invented bifocal eye glasses! He therefore improved not only our spiritual vision but also our physical vision!! (www.greatsite.com/engbibhis/main.html). Wycliffe's belief was that:
[i] The sacred Scriptures be the property of the people, and one which no party should be allowed to wrest from them.
[ii] The authority of the Scriptures is independent on any other authority, and is preferable to every other writing, but especially to the books of the church of Rome.
[iii] It is impossible for any part of the Holy Scriptures to be wrong. In Holy Scripture is all the truth, one part of Scripture explains another.
The public reading of Wycliffe's translation was mainfested in the Lollard movement. Hence the expression to 'Loll about'. For the Lollards would stand around in public reading Wycliffe's translation. The subsequent persecution of him and of those who possessed his bible was extraordinary. The first law enacted to stop people reading God's word was passed in 1401 by Henry IV, and called De Heretico Comburendo, 'about the buring of Heretics'....
Many were burnt at the stake with copies of his translation around their necks as a result of this law. During the reign of Henry V (1413-1422) an Act was confirmed by which:
English Sheriffs were forced to take an oath to persecute the Lollards, and the Justices must deliver a relapsed heretic to be burned within 10 days of his accusation (Armitage a History of the Baptists, 1890, I, p323).
The Lollards were those who valued the teachings of the bible over the doctrines of the Church of Rome. They read and preached in English from Wycliffe's Bible. In 1414 a law was passed as follows:
All who read the scriptures in their mother tongue should: Forfeit land, cattle, life and goods from the heirs for ever !! (Eadie: History of the English Bible).
In 1416 Archbishop Chichele at Oxford declared that the clergy should make:
A thorough search in the parish twice a year, for all persons that: Hold any either heresies or errors, or have any suspected books in the English tongue (Blackburn, History of the Christian Church 1880 p346).
However Wycliffe himself had the support of Queen Joan (1328-1385), of Queen Ann (the wife of Richard II), and ultimately of God himself:
In May 1382, Wycliffe was called before yet another synod of ecclesiastical authorities. This is called the Blackfriars Synod, because it was held in the monastery of Blackfriars in London. When the 47 Bishops and monks and religious doctors took their seats, a powerful earthquake shook the city. Huge stones fell out of the castle walls and pinnacles toppled (John Wycliffe and the Lollards - Fundamental Baptist Information Service).
Wycliffe's argument to the Catholic authorities for translating the bible into English was as follows:
You say it is heresy to speak of the Holy Scriptures in English. You call me a heretic because I have translated the Bible into the common tongue of the people. Do you know whom you blaspheme? Did not the Holy Ghost give the Word of God at first in the mother tongue of the nations to whom it was addressed ? (Fountain, John Wycliffe)
In 1506 William Tylsworth was burned for his faith in the Word of God and his own daughter was forced to ignite the fire. In 1519 six men and a woman were burned for:
Teaching their children the Lord's Prayer and the ten commandments in English (Eadie: History of the English Bible).
The Lollard's Tower, where people possessing an English bible were tortured and killed, still exists today in Lambeth Palace, the London home of the Archbishop of Cantebury. But despite all of this persecution, Wycliffe's bible was still being read at the time of the next great bible translator William Tyndale (1484 - 1536), the Father of what eventually became the King James Bible. Tyndale's first translation had to be finished abroad, but 3,000 copies reached England in December 1526.
The persecution then continued. John Tewkesbury had been reading Wycliffe's bible since 1512, and had obtained a copy of the Tyndale New Testament in 1526. He was first arrested in April 1529 and tortured and crippled. He was finally burned on December 20th 1530 for: Distributing copies of the word of God and believing in salvation by faith in Christ alone (www.whidbey.net/~dcloud/articles/williamtyndale.htm).
Tyndale was imprisoned in May 1535. Whilst he was in prison, three editions of his new testament were printed. He was strangled and the burnt at the stake on October 6th 1536. At his death he prayed out loud:
Lord open the King of England's Eyes !
On October 4, 1535 John Rogers and Miles Coverdale who were loyal disciples of Tyndale, finished Tyndale's translation of the Old Testament into English and printed abroad the first complete English Bible, known as the Coverdale Bible. John Rogers then changed his name to Thomas Matthew (an interesting name for a bible translator!) and printed the Coverdale Bible again, under this nom de plume, since Tyndale's work was banned. This edition is called the Matthews Bible
In 1539, 3 years after Tyndale was executed, his spoken prayer was answered. Thomas Cranmer, the Archbishop of Cantebury, hired Miles Coverdale, at the bequest of King Henry VIII to publish what was called the Great Bible.
These were Tyndale's words as a prologue for his translation of Jonah:
As the envious Philistines stopped the wells of Abraham, and filled them up with earth, to put the memorial out of mind, to the intent that they might challenge the ground; even so the fleshly minded hypocrites stop up the veins of life, which are the scripture, with the earth of their traditions, false similitudes and lying allegories. And that, of like zeal, to make the scripture their own possession and merchandise. And so shut up the kingdom which is in God's word, neither entering in themselves, nor suffering them that would. (Willam Tyndale)
However bequest from King Henry did not end the persecution of bible translators! Because the persecution originated not with the crown but with the Church. When Bloody Mary (Queen Mary) came to the throne, being possessed to return England to the Roman church, she burned both John Rogers (Thomas Matthew) and Thomas Cranmer at the stake.
Meanwhile Miles Coverdale had taken refuge in Geneva in Switzerland. There, in exile, he and John Foxe with the protection of John Calvin and John Knox produced the Geneva Bible, which was first published in 1560. It was Queen Elizabeth I whose reign brought this persecution to an end. The English Bible History site (www.greatsite.com/engbibhis/main.html) says this about the Geneva bible and William Tyndale:
The Geneva Bible was the first Bible to add verses to the chapters, so that referencing specific passages would be easier. Every chapter was also accompanied by extensive marginal notes and references so thorough and complete that the Geneva Bible is also considered the first English "Study Bible". William Shakespeare quotes thousands of times in his plays from the Geneva translation of the Bible. The Geneva Bible became the Bible of choice for over 100 years of English speaking Christians. Between 1560 and 1644 at least 144 editions of this Bible were published. Examination of the 1611 King James Bible shows clearly that its translators were influenced much more by the Geneva Bible, than by any other source. The Geneva Bible itself retains over 90% of William Tyndale's original English translation. The Geneva in fact, remained more popular than the King James Version until decades after its original release in 1611! The Geneva holds the honor of being the first Bible taken to America, and the Bible of the Puritans and Pilgrims.
The King James Bible, although the work of 50 scholars, is very close to Tyndale's original Translation:
In the Gospel of St. Mark and the Epistle to the Hebrew there are not more than 80 words (in Tyndale's translation) ... which are not found in our Authorised Version of the Bible (Moulton - History of the English Bible).
The Authorised version is the King James Version. The English Bible changed the World in the early 17th century. Multitudes of commoners were driven to learn to read by their desire to study the bible. The 16th century historian John Foxe, who had supported Miles Coverdale whilst he was producing the Geneva Bible observed:
Everybody that could bought the book or busily read it or got others to read it to them if they could not themselves, and divers more elderly people learned to read on purpose. And even little boys flocked among the rest to hear portions of the holy Scripture read.
It is important that the story above is told and the antics of the church are exposed. We are fortunate today that a greater freedom of religious belief and worship exists in many countries than was enjoyed in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. The Church of that time did not want the common man to be able to understand the bible, they wanted it to remain a mystery to them written in a foreign language. In that way the church could play God to its flock, which is what they wanted to do, what they did back then and what they are doing today. The 'Trinity' turns a logical book into an incomprehensible marvel. It renders it as meaningless as if it was written in Latin. Arius, Wycliffe, Tyndale, Newton, are the enlighteners from God. The church has become a daughter of the darkness.
Both John Wycliffe and William Tyndale wanted the ploughboy to know as much about the bible as the priest. So does God and so do we. Hence this book/website. For there is a bible within the bible and there is a holy code within the holy scriptures. Therefore we have written out this hidden bible today for the same ploughboy and for the same stable girl whose heart and mind and soul John Wycliffe and William Tyndale valued more highly than their own.
Sir Isaac would have benefited from a modern Mathematics degree course at his university. He of course is the father of half of it, the Calculus/Analysis half. Although algebra and abstract symbolism (the other half of Pure Maths) are of more use in interpreting the bible (as far as we are aware). He would then have known, from the group theory lectures, instantly, that the Trinity, being illogically defined, is simply not defined and therefore non existent.
Newton, being a fellow at Trinity College Cambridge, was required to attest to his acceptance of the 39 articles of the Anglican Church, one of which was the doctrine of the Trinity. He was bothered about signing something which contained the Trinity that he had no evidence as to the truth of. So he applied his standard scientific and logical method to the issue of whether the Trinity was a true or false doctrine. This method is to read all of the available relevant literature on the subject, then assimilate it, think about it, kick it about, digest it and see if it makes sense, or if there is an underlying pattern or flaw in it. See if there is an underlying truth or an underlying lie. This method when applied to the bible is what we call the Jigsaw Principle.
Newton produced two knock out blows to the Trinity:
 The Father is God of the son
 It is defined illogically
We have covered the latter on these two. As regards the former. Newton used:4 The Christ, who is the image of God (2 Corinthians 4). 9 You loved righteousness, and you hated lawlessness. That is why God, your God, anointed you with [the] oil of exultation more than your partners (Hebrews 1).
From this he reasoned that the Father was God of the Son. He could just as well have used Jesus' famous last words:34 Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani, which means when translated: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me (Mark 15).
Newton's observations and deductions came from reading most of the works of the early church fathers, (Irenaeus, Tertullan, Cyprian, Euasebius, Eutychius, Sulpitius Severus, Clement, Origen, Basil, John Chrysostom, Alexander of Alexandria, Epiphanius, Hilary, Theodoret, Gregory of Nyssa, Cyril of Alexandria, Leo I, Victorinus Afer, Rufinus, Manentius, Prudentius, Ignatius, Justin, Augustine, Jerome etc), and from reading many manuscripts of the bible, and applying the Jigsaw Principle to them (finding an interpretation which logically harmonised them) were recorded in one of his early theological manuscripts (1672-1675):
|1||The [word] God, is no where in the scriptures used to signify more than one of the three persons at once.|
|2||The word 'God', put absolutely without particular reference to the Son or Holy Ghost, does always signify the Father from one end of the scriptures to the other.|
|3||When ever it is said in the scriptures that there is but one God, it is meant of the Father.|
|4||It is a proper epithet of the Father to be called almighty. For by God almighty we always understand the Father.|
|5||The son in all things submits his will to the will of the Father, which would be unreasonable if he were equal to the Father.|
|6||The son confesses the Father greater than him, calls him his God etc.|
|7||The son acknowledges the original pre-science of all future things to be in the Father alone.|
|8||The union between him and the Father he interprets to be like that of the saints one with another. That is, in agreement of will and counsel.|
Then Newton, who was by now the Lucasian professor of Mathematics at Trinity College, decided to go to King Charles II to seek a dispensation allowing him to remain as professor but withdraw his attestation. He prepared his arguments as above to present to the King of England to save his career. The King agreed and stipulated that all future holders of his chair were to be exempt from holy orders.
Newton believed that God’s works, his creation and God’s word, his book, the bible, were twinned. And that both were a riddle, a code to be cracked. Newton believed that cracking this code was a duty owed to God by man, in both cases (Isaac Newton, the last sorcerer - Michael White - But Newton was not a sorcerer, he was a true worshipper).
What Gordon finds so wonderful and yet so tragic, is that Newton succeeded in the case of God’s Universe in cracking the code. But he failed (notwithstanding a very valiant attempt) in the case of God’s word (he did believe that the bible was God's word). He died trying to decode the bible and find out when Armageddon was. His failure was not his fault. It was not God’s time from 1642-1727 to release that information. So what the true God did, who must have dearly desired to show Sir Isaac the whole of the holy code of the bible, was to let him see the entirety of the mechanical code behind his physical creation of the universe instead. It was all that his own justice would allow. And here God was, holding back his love for the sake of his justice.
The date upon which mankind was first allowed to see the date of Armageddon was 1992February1, 1991Shebat21, 4600 solar days before 1290 biblical lunar days before it is to begin (Daniel 8 and Daniel 12 - see , ). This was the day upon which Gordon worked out the Exedenic Times, and it began the ‘Time of the end’. Which is the time of the knowledge of the true date of the end. And Gordon would like to say this: It was his appreciation of the perfection of the physical works of God as exhibited by Newton which convinced him that the bible, the spiritual work of God, since it shared that perfection, must be in a code.
So we have the dynamic code of the universe, as discovered by Newton. We have the genetic code of the human body, as discovered by Crick and Watson. And here at last is the grammatical code of the bible, as discovered by Gordon Ritchie, Tony Moore and Massoud Vakili as a result of the leadings of the true God, and on the realisation by Gordon that this God whom Newton showed him was perfect must have written a book every bit as perfect as his universe. A realisation which unknown to Gordon at the time he had it, had hit Newton some 300 years earlier. So here we are, the 3 groups of wonder decoders, Cambridge men in all 3 groups. Let us all therefore, with God's help through Jesus, finish the work that Newton, the Father of all three Cambridge divine code breaking groups began (Please do not ask if we are the real trinity!)
For the precise nature of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit - see . Here is some of Sir Isaac Newton's Chronology, deduced in the late 17th and early 18th century, mainly from Daniel 9 and Daniel 12.
|1948||Second Coming of Christ|
|1944||End of the great tribulation of the Jews|

Although begun during the 1670's Newton continued his work of interpretation until the month of his death in 1727 (Isaac Newton - Michael White, the table above is from his book).
The table above is a quite amazing prophetic achievement for a man living around 1700 AD.
Any unanswered question asked in the scriptures with two possible answers (normally yes and no), has the answer in one word symbolic thread, being the opposite of the answer in the literal or straight symbolic meaning, the event symbolism.
In other words both answers are true in either the literal or the symbolic meaning (or both).
Stephen explains this principle just before he gets a vision of heaven saying...
35 This Moses, whom they disowned, saying, 'Who appointed you ruler and judge?' this man God sent off as both ruler and deliverer by the hand of the angel that appeared to him in the thornbush (Acts 7).
The rhetorical question has the answer: Nobody. But the greater fulfilment has the answer given to us by Stephen, namely: Jehovah himself. The bible is a maximal meaning book. A question creates an ambiguity and no ambiguity in scripture is an oversight. So a binary question which is unanswered in the account takes both answers, one in the literal thread and the other in a word symbolic thread.
Take for example the great words of Nicodemus, a man whose love exceeded his pride:4 Nicodemus said to him: How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter into the womb of his mother a second time and be born, can he? (John 3)
Well literally, no, of course he cannot. But symbolically,
yes, that is precisely how one is born again. Born from the womb of his heavenly
mother, God’s wife, the holy spirit. Born as an angel.
What has been born from fleshly women is men and what has been born from the spirit woman, the holy spirit, is angels. When you are born again, God creates an angel in heaven through his wife, the holy spirit for you, Amen. See - How is one born again, and see - The Trinity is just God's family.
That is the level of beauty that you will see if you are pure in heart and if your love exceeds your pride. Look how Nicodemus was repaid for one act of faith. It was enough. But his works did not stop there:39 Nicodemus also, the man that came to him in the night the first time, came bringing a roll of myrrh and aloes, about 100 pounds [of it].
Why was it 100 (Roman) pounds? We presently think these are 90 months of Laodicea from 2003Nisan13 to 2010Tishri13 plus 10 months of the LWs from 2014Tishri10/14 to 2015Ab14 - making 100 months. This is a numerical symbolism - see the Numerical Principle. We know that Nicodemus was born again, because we know something about God’s love, we would be blind if we could not see the love of Nicodemus. Which brings us nicely to another Binary (Yes/No) Question:50 Nicodemus, who had come to him previously, and who was one of them, said to them:
No Nicodemus was not out of Galilee (precious few Pharisees were). But the antitypical Nicodemus is out of the antitypical Galilee.2 But John, having heard in jail about the works of the Christ, sent by means of his own disciples
19 So John summoned a certain two of his disciples and sent them to the Lord to say: Are you the Coming one or are we to expect a different one? (Luke 7).
In the literal meaning, yes Jesus was the ‘coming one’, in the sense that he was the one prophesied as coming to restore Israel. But in the greater meaning, there will be several different ones.5 For instance, which is easier, to say: Your sins are forgiven, or to say: Get up and walk? (Matthew 9) 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic: Your sins are forgiven, or to say: Get up and pick up your bed and walk? (Mark 2)
Obviously the former. But in the greater meaning they are both the same thing because:
‘Get up’ is the baptism into the name of the father Abraham, the bath of the flesh, the water baptism, the forgiveness of sins in the past, giving one a clean standing before God.
‘Pick up your bed’ is: Have a resurrection into the kingdom of God. This is the finishing of the water baptism, the righteous decree in the flesh, the free gift of citizenship of the Kingdom of God, the forgiveness of all sins up to Armageddon, the granting of the entrance Visa through the ambassador Abraham.
‘Walk’ is the baptism into the name of Jesus, or Paul or Gordon etc, the sanctification in holy spirit, being born again, the forgiveness of all sins until time indefinite, the walking before God with a clean conscience, the creation of an angelic son of God, the entrance into the holy family of God, through a covenant mediated by a mediator.33 Who will file accusation against God's chosen ones? God is the One who declares [them] righteous (Romans 8).
In the literal meaning no one. In the greater meaning Gordon! See ['The Faithful and Discreet Slave cut in two']
And Pilate enquired of Jesus:Are you the king of the Jews? (Mark 15:2).
Literally, no, he wasn't at that time. Symbolically, yes, in 1914Tishri, - see , , he became the vassal king of God over the true human seed of Isaac, the true church, the Jews of that time, who were all of those in the 3EC, the 3rd Elijah Covenant of Russell, which was a subcovenant of the ICC, the Isaaic Church covenant - see . Most of these were New Covenant Saints. He alluded to this in his answer:36 Jesus answered: My kingdom is no part of this world. If my kingdom were part of this world, my attendants would have fought that I should not be delivered up to the Jews. But, as it is, my kingdom is not from this source (John 18). 38 So Pharaoh said to his servants: Can another man be found like this one in whom the spirit of God is? (Genesis 41)
Literally no, Joseph was unique. But in the greater meaning, yes, it's there will be another Joseph.
31 Still, many of the crowd put faith in him; and they commenced saying: When the Christ arrives, he will not perform more signs than this man has performed, will he? (John 7)
Literally no because of course Jesus was the Christ that the Jew had been waiting for. But when Jesus comes again in Kingdom power, in the body of his wife, to separate the sheep from the goats, he will actually do more signs than were done in his ministry to the Jews.
But the largest scriptural example of a Binary Question comes from Paul...
28 And God has set the
respective ones in the congregation, first, apostles; second, prophets; 3rd,
teachers; then powerful works; then gifts of healings; helpful services,
abilities to direct, different tongues.
29 Not all are apostles, are they?
Not all are prophets, are they?
Not all are teachers, are they?
Not all perform powerful works, do they?
30 Not all have gifts of healings, do they?
Not all speak in tongues, do they?
Not all are translators, are they?
31 But keep zealously seeking the greater gifts. And yet I show you a surpassing way (1 Corinthians 12).
There will be a time, in fact a period of 7x perhaps, in the last true church when all of us take all the positions that Paul refers to!
Here is another binary question...
23 Then Abraham approached and began to
say: Will you really sweep away the righteous with the wicked? [Binary
question. Literally no. Word symbolically yes. Abraham negotiates for the
righteous ones who miss the ark. They are therefore swept away with the wicked
ones, but then are resurrected into the kingdom]
10 For those who are dead will you show a marvel?[1st death: No] [Judicially dead but physically alive: Yes]
These questions explain the rehabilitative role of Gehenna.
It appears that man questions asked in the bible answer themselves...
4 Nicodemus said to him: How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter into the womb of his mother a second time and be born, can he? (John 3)
That is of course how one is born again.
Elijah says to all the people: How long will you be limping upon two opinions? Literally until when will you be passing over upon two branches? According to the bible code, these questions answer themselves...
21 Then Elijah approached all the people [3x/9x] and said: How long will ye [3x]
over upon 2 different
opinions [1x+2x] [literally passing over upon 2
If Jehovah is the [true] God, go [ye] following him [3x]; but if Baal is, go [ye] following him [3x]. [Total is 3x.3x+3x+3x=15x which are the split Passovers from 2001Nisan14 to 2015Nisan14/Iyyar14. The LW congregation started on 2000Elul16 and the last divided old Passover for the saints is 2015Nisan14/Iyyar14]
And the people [they] did not say a word in answer to him [3x]
22 And Elijah went on to say to the people [singular 1x]: I myself have been left as a prophet of Jehovah [1x], I alone [have been so left] [1x], while the prophets of Baal are 450 men [450x. This comparison indicates that we should count in 450x].
23 Now let them give us 2 young bulls [450x.2x], and let them choose for themselves one young
bull [450x] and cut it
up/divide it [225x. Actually the Bull
stands for prophetic endurance. This is a prophetic tenacity contest] [This
the form of a time, times and a divided time as in Daniel12] and put it
[the bull in pieces] upon the
woods [450x+3x], but they should not put fire to
it [0x]. And I myself shall dress the other young
bull [1x], and I must place it upon the
woods [1x+3x], but I shall not put fire to
24 And you must call upon the name of your god [450x], and I , I shall call upon the name of Jehovah [1x]; and it must occur that the [true] God that answers by fire is the [true] God [1x]
To this all the people [singular] [3x/9x, all the ones of the people] answered [1x] and [they] said [1x]: The thing is good (1Kings18).
Count verse 21-24: 3x/9x+ 15x+3x+1x+1x+450x+450x.2x+450x+225x+450x+3x+1x+1x+3x+450x+1x+1x+3x./9x.(1x+1x) = 2925x+39x/57x=2964/2982 (or 8 years and 84/102 days) which run from 2006Sivan13, the prediction first failure the start of the contest, to 2014Elul25, the end of the 70 BLC weeks of Daniel9 from 2013Iyyar16.
28 Consequently Jehovah said to Moses: How long must you people refuse to keep my commandments and my laws?
29 Mark the fact that Jehovah has given you the sabbath (Exodus 16)
Doh! We refuse to keep his commandments
until the Kingdom of God which is the great sabbath after the 6,000 year working
These are questions that are asked of various characters in the bible, but that are really meant for the various readers of the bible. These are questions asked by the holy spirit of the bible reader:
Any reader question asked in a bible account is answered by that account somehow.
8 ...You with little faith.
9 Do you not yet see the point, or do you not remember the five loaves in the case of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up?
10 Or the seven loaves in the case of the four thousand and how many provision baskets you took up? (Matthew 16)
Yes, the bible reader says to himself, how stupid and blind the apostles were, doh! Did they ever get the point at first? Fine, condemn them if you will. But was this account recorded for the benefit of the characters in it or was it recorded for the Christians who would follow them? Who is Jesus really speaking to here? Not just his disciples in the boat who forgot to bring along the loaves, the bible wasn't written for them. So tell us please oh ye reader with much faith, much more than the disciples: Do you know what the significance of the 12 baskets in the case of the 5,000 and the 7 baskets in the case of the 4,000 is? What do they stand for?
If you do not know, then Jesus is talking to you. He is saying look, these numbers are important. He is saying, if you want to understand the greater meaning of these two feeding miracles, which obviously relate to spiritual feeding miracles of true religions, then think first about the numbers of the provision baskets. Think about how many there were. This is the key.
To interpret this we apply the Numerical Principle to the baskets. Jesus is basically asking the reader if he has grasped the Numerical Principle! The meaning of numbers of things in the bible! So the 12 baskets are 12 days or 12 months or 12 years or administrations of food which does not come directly from Jesus, but comes as leftovers. Likewise the 7 baskets are 7 days or 7 months or 7 years or administrations of food not directly from Jesus but from leftovers - see .
42 And they began saying: Is this not Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it that now he says: I have come down from heaven ? (John 6).
Well, how is it?? The Holy Spirit wishes you to think about this, and to ask yourself the very same question. Consider please the scripture below:
23 From the offspring of this [man] according to his promise God
has brought to Israel a savior, Jesus,
24 after John, in advance of the entry of that one, had preached publicly to all the people of Israel baptism of repentance (Acts 13).
This means that John the baptist preached publicly in advance of the entry, the coming down from heaven of an angel, God's firstborn and only begotten son, the angel Michael, into the human Jesus. Angelically possessing him at his baptism.
22 And the holy spirit in bodily form as a dove came down upon him, and a voice came out of heaven: You are my Son, the beloved; I have approved you (Luke 3).
Q: What vehicle for a son of God is corporeally like a
A: An angel.
32 John also bore witness, saying: I viewed the spirit coming down as a dove out of heaven, and it remained upon him (John 1).
Jesus was not called 'God’s son the beloved' until after the dove had descended from heaven. This dove symbolised the entrance of the angel Michael into Jesus.
6 But the righteousness resulting from faith speaks in this
manner: Do not say in your heart: Who will ascend into heaven? that is, to bring
7 Or: Who will descend into the abyss? that is, to bring Christ up from the dead (Romans 10)
The answer to both is Gabriel who angelically possessed John the Baptist for the purpose of presiding over the entrance of Michael into Jesus at his baptism. We are getting a bit deep here. For the full story see - Jesus was Michael, and John was Gabriel.
6 For who in the skies can be compared to Jehovah? Who can resemble Jehovah among the sons of God? [Michael means: Who is like God? And the answer is... Michael, who became a God to be worshipped between 33Sivan1 and 33Sivan5. This must have happened on Pentecost for that is the festival of divinity. A Jubilee with gifts of the spirit, a release from the restriction of the angelic body for Michael] (Psalm 89).
48 What able-bodied man is
there alive who will not see death? [Enoch,
Immanuel etc] Can he provide escape for his soul from the hand of
Sheol? [literally No, Gabriel resurrected
Michael to God as an angel] [Yes,
Jesus resurrected his wife in five tranches in each presence, making the 5
instars of the heavenly locust] Selah [means
musical pause, literally lift up - your attention from the music]
26 For what benefit will it be to a man if he gains the whole world
but forfeits his soul? or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
Jesus asked this question of his disciples, but quite obviously he is asking it of every man and woman who can read.
If there are 2 or 3 or 4 parallel accounts of an event in the bible, then the first word symbolic thread has the same symbolism in all the accounts. This is true also for the second and third etc. word symbolic threads, for the accounts that actually have this number of word symbolic threads. So if all the parallel accounts have the same number of threads then the word symbolism for each thread is global across all the accounts. And each account is a distinct separate non overlapping fulfillment of the word symbolism, for all word symbolic threads. All of the fulfilments of one word symbolic thread relate to each other to from one global word symbolic picture for that thread.
In fact so long as all the parallel accounts have the same number of threads we create a new account which contains all of the parallel accounts. Then we interpret this created account.
If any parallel account has a successive designation or a successive description, then this only affects the particular parallel account that it is in. And in general for all parallel accounts or for all parallel subaccounts (such as dreams and recitals of dreams), the prophetic forms only affect the subaccount that they are in.
If the parallel accounts are symbolic, such as parallel parables, then the subaccounts all share the same event symbolism since they describe the same events. If the parallel accounts are literal, then of course in the literal meaning all the parallel accounts describe the same thing.
The word count for the Repetition Principle is the global total for all the parallel subaccounts. So if a countable noun is repeated a total of 3 times in all of the parallel accounts in a created account wherein each parallel subaccount has 3 threads in total (i.e. one literal/event thread and two word symbolic threads), then the noun takes 3 different symbolic meanings in these threads.
If one or more parallel accounts has a different number of threads to the others, then we create an account containing all of the parallel accounts. Each thread in the created account involves only the particular parallel accounts which have that thread.
Parallel Parables do not have to have been recited at the same time or in the same place or to the same audience. These things are irrelevant to a parable. Repeated parables are parallel parables.
For examples of sets of parallel accounts with differing number of threads - see the parallel accounts of Bartimaeus, one of the two the blind persons cured on the road to/from Jericho  - this set of accounts we do not understand! See also the signs of the times in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 - this set of accounts we do understand from a code standpoint.
Some accounts contain parallel subaccounts already, such as Daniel 4 and Genesis 41. These two have dreams and recitals of dreams, which are both describing the same thing. So the dream and the recital are two parallel subaccounts of these accounts. So they share the same symbolism in all threads (literal/event and word) and their countable noun counts add. These cases, since they are created by God himself tell us what to do with parallel accounts in general and with parallel accounts which have differing numbers of threads in particular. One simply uses the threads that are there.
In the 4 Gospels, in Kings & Chronicles, in Ezra and Nehemiah, there are parallel accounts of the same events. For example the feeding of the 5,000 is mentioned 4 times, once in each Gospel! Each account has a greater symbolic meaning by the Symbolic Structure Principle, so there are at least 4 greater meanings to the feeding of the 5,000. These actually relate to the feeding campaigns of the 4 true Christian religions - see . The thing to do with these accounts, using the Power Principle, is to play 'spot the difference'. Because any differences are not mistakes, or omissions wherein God overlooked something, and thought he better put an account in Mark just in case Matthew made a bit of a mess of it. They are deliberate.
For an example of how this works see -  or  'The Faithful Slaves', or , , .
If an account describes two circumstances and goes on to describe what happens in the first circumstance but omits to describe what happens in the second circumstance (and any parallel account omits to describe it), then the second circumstance is resolved in the Word symbolic meaning.
28 Samson now called to Jehovah and said: Sovereign Lord Jehovah, remember me, please, and strengthen me, please, just this once, Oh you the [true] God, and let me avenge myself upon the Philistines with vengeance for one of my two eyes (Judges 16).
What about the other eye!
6 So David said: Anyone striking the Jebusites first, he will become head and prince. And Joab the son of Zeruiah got to go up first, and he came to be head (1 Chronicles 11).
Why didn’t he become the prince?
19 Next he commanded the crowd to recline on the grass and took the 5 loaves and 2 fishes, and, looking up to heaven, he said a blessing, and, after breaking the loaves, he distributed them to the disciples, the disciples in turn to the crowds. 20 So all ate and were satisfied, and they took up the surplus of fragments 12 baskets full (Matthew 14).
Great, wonderful, miraculous, but what did he do with the 2 fishes?? They are stated as being eaten in the parallel account in Mark 6. So in this case we cannot deduce that the 2 fishes were eaten in the Word Symbolic meaning of Matthew 14.
27 He is rescuing and delivering and performing signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth [Joel2, Acts2, the first birth pang, the first sign, but this account has only an earthly sign, so in the word symbolic fulfilment there we get a heavenly sign! ] for he has rescued Daniel from the paw of the lions (Daniel 6).
7 All the high officials of the kingdom, the prefects and the satraps, the high royal officers and the governors, have taken counsel together to establish a royal statute and to enforce an interdict, that whoever makes a petition to any God or man for 30 days except in you, Oh king, should be thrown to the lions' pit (Daniel 6).
The account then goes on to describe in great detail the story of the interdict, but says nothing about the royal statute.
If a phrase in the bible is ambiguous, having two obvious possible meanings, then both meanings are true in one or more threads.
If a phrase in the bible is ambiguous, having further possible meanings over and above the obvious literal meaning, then these extra meanings only add to the obvious literal meaning, they never replace the obvious literal meaning which still holds true.
If a scripture looks imprecise it is totally precise. The face value imprecision is in fact total precision when correctly interpreted.
If an account is written ambiguously so as to have two possible meanings then it has both meanings in the greater meaning, for no meaning of no particle of no letter of the law of God, which is the bible, will fail.
Simply put: Ambiguity Adds
17 Indeed, it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one part/horn/apex of a letter of the Law to fail. (Luke 16)
For if a scripture is ambiguous then this is not an oversight by the holy spirit, it is deliberate. And the scripture is deliberately trying to say both things and therefore both possible meanings will have force.
For example the 2 river banks of Daniel 12 - U152
and the 7 lampstands being 7 congregations of Revelation 1 - U151.
43 Then he said to his attendant: Go up, please. Look in the direction of the sea. So he went up and looked and then said: There is nothing at all. And he went on to say, Go back 7 times.
44 And it came about at the 7th [not said to be time] that he got to say: Look! There is a small cloud like a man's palm ascending from the sea. He now said: Go up, say to Ahab: Hitch up! And go down that the downpour may not detain you! (1Kings 18).
The obvious literal meaning is that it came about at the 7th time
of going back that he got to say: Look! But it is also true that there is
another 7th, not the 7th time of going back which the attendant gets to say:
Look! So all
these extra meanings do not detract from the obvious meaning, they add to it. In
fact an ambiguity is an extra precision since no possible meaning of scripture
is without force.
If in the bible an event is described as involving "A and B". Then in one or more threads two events are being referred to. One involving A and the other involving B.
40 For just as Jonah was in the belly of the huge fish 3 days and 3 nights, so the Son of man will be in the heart of the earth 3 days and 3 nights (Matthew 12).
Jesus was in the heart of the earth, his body being in a tomb for 3 days (and 3 nights) from Nisan15-17 inclusive. Jesus was in the composite heart of God's heavenly people, the earth in heaven, for 3 nights (and 3 days) from Nisan14, his arrest, to Nisan16, his angelic resurrection, inclusive.
17 Jesus said to her: Stop clinging to me. For I have not yet ascended to the Father. But be on your way to my brothers and say to them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God.'
That is a lot of ascensions in a maximally distributive book!
The word symbolic meaning of a pronoun in a bible account can be any of the designations previously used for the noun that it is standing for.
For example: Jesus, the Lord, the Teacher, The Saviour met Mary and Mary said to him[Jesus, Lord, Teacher, Saviour]
Since each designation stands for a different person in the word symbolism, pronouns introduce great flexibility into the word symbolic meaning. They still relate to the noun they stand for in the literal meaning, but can take any designation for that noun used previously in the account. We also think that there may be a relationship between the number of pronouns used after a noun and which designation of the noun the pronoun stands for. But it is too early to formulate a rule for that at present.
Any hypothetical scenario described in scripture must actually occur or the scripture has no power.
11 I am coming quickly. Keep on holding fast what you have, that no one may take your crown (Revelation 3).
Had the scripture just said: Hold on fast to what you have, then it would have merely been good advice. But because it goes on to say: that non one may take your crown, there must be a taking of the crown of those words are powerless. So this warning means AOP will not keep holding fast what he has (his baptism), and as a result AOL will take his crown, the crown over 144,000 crowns. So AOL will claim to be the mediator of the 2NC.
2 Give thanks to Jehovah on the harp. On an instrument of 10 strings make melody to
him [10 possible threads to a
3 Sing to him a new song [work out a new understanding of scripture. For the bible is God's song book for man - it is our sheet music to be sung]; Do your best at playing on the strings [Do your best to interpret the various threads of a bible account] along with joyful shouting [We shout when we finally get a new understanding!] (Psalms 33 NWT).
Any account may have the following threads.
2. Event Symbolic
4. Coded Numeric
5. Word Symbolic 1-6 threads - see Revelation 12:9 and U151.
This does not mean that every account has 10 threads. For an account is the sheet music to be played on this harp. It might only have one string. But the instrument itself does have a total of 10 strings available to be played by the harpist.
We should listen to David, by reading the Psalms, because he himself says...
8 I shall make you have insight and instruct you in the way you should go. I will give advice with my eye upon you [advice which is in your interest]. (Psalms 32 NWT)
The phrase nth of the month (omitting the word day) can mean the nth day of the month or the nth Sabbath of the month or the neth festival of the month or the nth festival Sabbath of the month etc.etc. But it always smees to be a festival.
17 And they  began on the first [day/Sabbath/festival/fire sign day] to the month, the first [2014Tishri1, the first day of the first month of the old secular year] to sanctify, and on the 8th day to the month they came to the porch of Jehovah and they sanctified the house of Jehovah in 8 days, and on the 16th day to the first month they finished (2Chronicles 29).
13 Now in the first and 600 year [not
said to be of Noah's life but obviously must be], in the
[first month either of the 601st year of Noah's
life or of the prevailing calendar year] [primary/initial
month of the new secular Kingdom year, which is 2015Ab], in the first
of the month [2370Tishri1]
[2015Ab1, the first day of
the month and the first festival Sabbath of the month being new rosh Hashana, or
2015Ab6, the first weekly Sabbath of the month - hence the word 'day' is missing],
it came about that the waters [faithful/loving
humans] had drained
from being upon the earth and Noah proceeded
to remove the covering [mikseh]
of the ark
and to look, and here the surface of the
ground had drained (Genesis 8:13).
1 In the 7th, on the 21st [day] to month [This is the 7th day of Cakes or the 7th day of Booths] the word of Jehovah occurred in [the] hand of Haggai, the prophet (Haggai 2).

When decoding an account, do not try to squeeze a symbolic meaning into a
fulfillment which you already understand. Even if you succeed you will have
learned nothing new. We have made this mistake hundreds of times. Many religions
no other way. To the Watchtower almost every time period in the second presence starts or
ends in 1914, and whenever there are two groups in the bible, then one is the
anointed remnant and the other is the great crowd. Do not be like this. Let the
account lead you, this is letting the holy spirit lead you! Set your mind free. Accept any crazy interpretation in the
creative phase and criticise it later - this is classic brainstorming technique.
‘Look!’ This is a word that occurs 958 times in the
NWT of the bible. When it occurs, treat it as a exhortation from the holy spirit
itself to you. For that is what it is!
‘A man, a householder’. ‘An enemy, a man’. This
is wonderful and cryptic and disguised. It is a double designation and one of
the two greater meanings refers to an angel. It is saying look there are two
guys and one is a man. Which is really saying, the other is an angel.
‘Gather together’. ‘Assemble’. These words when
they occur are often a cryptic request from the spirit to add up all of those
who are gathered together or assembled. The spirit is saying that their sum
stands for something.
Distinguish between event symbolism and account
symbolism. Event symbolism is the symbolism that Charles Russell and the second
Adventists used on Daniel 4. They use the elements of the events themselves as
symbolising elements in the greater meaning. But account symbolism, uses the
elements of the account of the events to symbolise elements in the greater
meaning. So a king who is referred to as Nebuchadnezzar, as King Nebuchadnezzar,
and as the King, can stand for two different people separately and together,
i.e. three different people/groups of people in the account symbolism
but only for one person in the event symbolism.
Distinguish between a further symbolic meaning and a
further fulfilment. A further symbolic meaning is effectively a whole new
account, a further fulfilment is a further instance of an existing account.
If something happens at a certain hour, then it, or events related to it, happen 12 times in all, the number of hours in a Hebrew day:
If there are ' 7 things' in a bible account, then these things are successive in time in all the word symbolic meanings.
Counting time in sevens was God's idea, he invented the week as recorded in Genesis 1. The 7 creative days of the creative week are the first thing in the bible (these are not literal 24 hour days because, for one thing, there was no earth on the first 'day'!) It is not a natural thing for man, who counts in base ten, or in dozens, to count time in sevens. God instigated this 'base' for counting time.
Time is what he counts in sevens, with a release after 7 times, counting to 7 exclusively or after 6 times counting 7 inclusively this being the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a concept which relates always to time. In the Hebrew language, the word for 'seven' and the word for 'Sabbath' are from the same root. Therefore the very language of God's people was and is declaring that 7 has to do with time. The concept that 7 relates to 7 things occurring one after the other with a release after or during the 7th one (depending on whether we count inclusively or exclusively), is enshrined in the language of the Old Testament.
But we fear that we have not laboured this seemingly trivial point enough. The Watchtower Society has 7 standing for 'divine completeness', but they miss the sense in which this completeness occurs, which is the temporal sense. It is a completeness in time, with the 7 repetitions occurring one after the other, consecutively, successively. For example, Daniel 9 literally says:
24 Seventy sevens, he is decreed for people of you and for city
of holiness of you
25 From issuing of decree to restore and to rebuild Jerusalem until anointed one, ruler, sevens seven, and sevens sixty-two (Daniel 9 - NIVHEOT).
It is implicit, it is understood that these sevens refer to time, and are therefore consecutive. It does not have to be spelt out. Similarly in the definition of the Jubilee, we see:
8 And you must count for yourself seven Sabbaths of years, seven times seven years, and the days of the seven Sabbaths of years must amount to forty-nine years for you (Leviticus 25).
A 'Sabbath' of years is here defined as 7 years. The holy spirit is actually equating, identifying 7 with the Sabbath. The Sabbath is a function of time, therefore the holy spirit is declaring 7 to be also a function of time, as regards its scriptural symbolism or significance.
So since Tuesday happens entirely after Monday, and since these two days have never coincided or even overlapped a little, and likewise for the whole week, the whole 7, the whole sabbath of days, we can deduce that 7 things means 7 successive things in scripture. For an example of the symbolism of 7: see .
We have so far discovered three dimensions of the holy book. The literal dimension, the event symbolic dimension and the word symbolic dimension. But there is a fourth.
There is a numerical count defined on certain phrases in the bible. This count only works in the Hebrew and the Greek. It is not the count of Eli Rips or Michael Drosnin or other equidistant Hebrew letter sequence researchers, which can be found at www.biblecodes.com. This count is a part of the 4th dimension of the bible.
The 4th dimension, is a cryptic dimension, it is not a symbolic dimension. For the scriptures do have a cryptic side, a newspaper crossword type side. This dimension appears to take the form of a series of discrete cryptic insights rather than a meaning or value for every word in every account as the other three dimensions give.
Now if you can see all four of these dimensions of the holy book then you are seeing the bible in colour rather than in black and white. For in our physical eyes, which God himself designed as a prophetic declaration of our spiritual vision (for everything the Jehovah does or declares is a prophetic declaration since as he is living all of his words and works are likewise living) we have cones, which see sharply in black and white, and we have rods, three types, which see slightly less sharply in colour. Is it red, green and blue? All of this structure is prefiguring the structure of the way in which we will see the bible, for the bible is a 4 dimensional book. The first dimension is the literal dimension and this corresponds to our cones, the ones that see in black and white, very sharply, unambiguously. The next three dimensions are the symbolic, the cryptic and the coded numeric dimensions, the red, the green and the blue rods. It is a beautiful book in glorious Technicolour. It is like Paul said:
18 In order that you may be thoroughly able to grasp mentally
with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height
19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge (Ephesians 3).
4 dimensions. For Einstein discovered that the 3 dimensions of space are related to the 4th dimension of time via the Lorenz transformation. This results from the fact that the speed of light is a constant to all observers whether the light source is driving forwards in his Ford Escort with his halogens relative to the observer or orbiting backwards in his space shuttle with his laser beam. But the constancy of the spiritual source of light, the bible, which rather than emitting light at a constant speed independent of its relative motion, is a constant source, independent of time, emitting light at different speeds, is also manifested in 4 dimensions and these are:
For the same God made both types of light. The bible is a very fractal book, since it is pattern upon pattern, and yet man only discovered fractals in the last 20 years. Now Crick and Watson discovered slightly before the discovery of fractals, the molecular structure of the code of life, our genetic code, a 4 base code, written in terms of:
Furthermore, we see optically via rods and cones. Rods see in trhee colours, Red Green and Blue, and Cones see more sharply but in black and white. So the 4 dimensions of our vision are...
Then we have the 4 fundamental forces which define interactions between light and matter in the visible universe. These are..,
The strong nuclear force is of a very different type to the weak nuclear force. It is not merely a stronger version of the weaker force. So we have 4 dimensions of space-time, 4 dimensions of human vision, and 4 bases of our genetic code & the 4 walls of the super temple of all Christianity with the 4 cornerstones but only one foundation stone, and we have the 4 living creatures in heaven: Courage, Power, Love and Wisdom (Ezekiel 1, Revelation 4), we have the 4 Horsemen of the apocalypse. Now perhaps the reader will see what truly is the breadth, the length, the height and the depth, the 4 dimensions, of the bible code.
Perhaps he will realise that the works of Einstein discovering the structure of the universe, and Crick and Watson, discovering the structure of the human body, prophetically establish that there will be a further spiritual equivalent among God's covenanted people, who will discover the structure of the bible code, the word of God.
For if Crick and Watson have been allowed to see the physical code of life, then we have been allowed to see the spiritual code of life. And it is the same God, Jehovah, who has made both of these codes, through his son. And his prophet, the now angelic apostle Paul, the one who has declared the 4 bases of the bible, has also declared this order of revealing, by saying:
46 The first is, not that which is spiritual, but that which is physical, afterward that which is spiritual (1 Corinthians 15).
It would appear that 4 stands for fundamental structure in the bible, just as 7 stands for temporal succession.
Why is the sun 400 times bigger than the moon when it is 400 times further away from the earth than the moon. What a coincidence! How come these two completely unrelated bodies exactly fit over each other in a solar eclipse?
You will not find the answer in the department of astrophysics. You will find it in the book of Isaiah.
21 Do you people not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told
to you from the outset? Have you not applied understanding from the foundations
of the earth?
22 There is one who is dwelling above the circle of the earth, the dwellers in which are as grasshoppers, the one who is stretching out the heavens just as a fine gauze, who spreads them out like a tent in which to dwell (Isaiah 40).
26 Raise your eyes high up and see. Who has created these things? It is the one who is bringing forth the army of them even by number, all of whom he calls even by name. Due to the abundance of dynamic energy, he also being vigorous in power, not one [of them] is missing (Isaiah 40).
But do not think that we wish to condemn astrophysics, on the contrary we wish to save it. In order to understand the universe one needs first to understand that it was God who set the speed of light at 3 x 108 metres/sec. He set it at this value before Adam was born, 4027Tishri10 BC, to stop us screwing up the universe until we had learned how to behave.
At some time before Adam was born, light travelled a lot faster as we have mentioned above. The universe has not been around for billions of years at all. The speed of light was reset by God as a cage for men. In fact it was reset by the command: Let there be light! Because light must have existed before God made this statement.
On the first creative day of Genesis God said: Let there be light. And he said this after observing that there was darkness on the surface of the watery deep. In other words after he had created the planet earth in the literal meaning of the chapter:
In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep; and God's spirit was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.
3 And God proceeded to say: "Let there be light." Then there came to be light (Genesis 1).
But we know that light existed from the start of the Big Bang. Therefore light already existed when he said: Let there be light. This is the key realisation in understanding the meaning of Genesis 1. So God reset some feature of light or recreated it on day 1 in the literal meaning.
So just because it takes one constant value today does not mean that it has always taken this constant value, once you admit that there may be a God. But physics does not admit this. Until it does, it will never discover the truth about the universe. However if you can find it in your heart to believe that it was God who set the speed of light, rather than random chance, then please go to section , the Munrose Hypothesis, where we deduce the date of the Big Bang as being 11,513,689,593 BC, and find out what the initial value of the speed of light was during the Big Bang itself (it was not 300,000 km/s !) from Genesis 1.
And another thing! What do you think God could be symbolising by having the whole universe held together by gravity, a universal unquestioning attractive force? Where would the universe be without gravity? The same place the world would be without love. And that is where we are going right now!
And another thing, seeing as our scientific and technological advancement has been so rapid in the last few thousand years, how come our art is now worse than that of the cave man??
So returning to the count on the bible:
25 And they will be given into his hand for a time, times and half a time (Daniel 7).
7 It will be for an appointed time, appointed times and a half (Daniel 12).
14 There is where she is fed for a time, times and half a time (Revelation 12).
We can do no better here than to quote Gordon's first letter to the Watchtower Society, that they actually received, to describe the meaning of this strange way of saying: 3½. If the man on the Clapham omnibus is asked: What is half of seven? he replies: It is three and a half. He does not reply: It is one plus ones plus a half of one. It is therefore manifestly apparent that the true God, who is most certainly able to do anything that the man on the Clapham omnibus is able to do, having created that man, is saying a lot more than ‘Three and a half times’, when he says: A time, times and half a time. Hopefully the man on the Clapham omnibus will one day know what this greater meaning of this central expression in the bible really is - see U152.
We read in Revelation 12:
14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place; there is where she is fed for a time and times and half a time away from the face of the serpent (Revelation 12).
‘Times’ is obviously in the plural (since Greek has no dual number as Hebrew does). But earlier in the same chapter we read:
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days (Revelation 12).
In the actual vision, and therefore in its event symbolism, (but not in it’s word symbolic meaning) the two periods are the same period and so we are being told by holy spirit that the phrase ‘a time, times and half a time’ is 1260 days of the BLC (Biblical Lunar Calendar), which is 3.5 lunar years of 360 days. But a year is a time, a cycle, of the earth around the sun. So 3.5 years is 3.5 times
So 1 time + times + ½ time = 3.5 times
So times = 2 times
So this particular plural counts as a double, in this equation. Therefore, one of the things that is certainly being said is that plurals count as two times in Greek, since the word 'times' is interpreted as 720 days in the above scriptures. In this context singulars count as one time and halves count as half a time.
25 and they will be given into his hand
[metaphorical] for a time, and times and half a time (Daniel 7)
7 It will be for an appointed time, appointed times and a half (Daniel 12)
14 there is where she is fed for a time and times and half a time away from the face of the serpent (Revelation 12).
The 3 scriptures above are actually the definition of how to count a scriptural list. Here are the list counting rules as far as we presently understand them...
1. The list must have 3 or more items in it (since all 3
lists above have 3 items in them).
2. The list may have only 2 items in it if one item is body part, such as hand 5x, foot 5x, eyes 2x, loins 2x, face 5x.
3. All items in the list count as singulars, duals, plurals, halves or fractions.
4. The result is a measure of time or a number of repetitions.
5. A body part triggers a count.
6. A number triggers a count.
7. A comparison triggers a count (such as the beast was like a Leopard)
8. A command followed by its execution triggers a count (such Joshua commanded the people to shout and the people shouted. Elijah said to all the people approach me. And all the people approached him).
9. A heading followed by further description triggers a count being a form of comparison - is the next action part of the heading or not? (such as he mocked them and said: call in a loud voice etc)
When a count is triggered one counts the whole sentence or perhaps the whole story related to the thing that has triggered the count.
With triggered qualified counts, you count the sense of the sentence rather the precise words used. This is the opposite of word symbolism!
List types include...
Objects of one verb.
Each item has a repeated noun.
Each item has a repeated preposition
Greek singular counts 1x
Greek Plural counts 2x
Hebrew Singular counts 1x
Hebrew Dual counts 2x
Hebrew Plural counts 3x
The king at the potato = 1x
The king ate 3 potatoes = 3x
3 kings at the potato = 3x
3 kings ate 3 potatoes = 6x (3x of kings eating and 3x of potatoes being eaten) we are adding the active count to the passive count
All the earth means all parts of the earth which counts as 2x in Greek and 3x in Hebrew
All the Hebrews means all the ones of the Hebrews which is 3x in Hebrew.
The hand has 5 fingers and so counts 5
times. It means 4x-5x, 5x or less but not 4x. A stretched hand
means 5x-6x, 5x or more but not 6x (Exodus 14, and Jesus betrayed into the hands
of sinners being 20 years max).
A king ruling over 5 kingdoms, counts 5x since his kingdoms are effectively the fingers of his dominion.
A mouth speaking 5 languages counts 5x, since these languages are effectively the fingers of his speech.
So a mouth [with 32 teeth and one tongue]
speaking blasphemies [2x] counts as 64x.
A hand [5x] holding oranges [2x] counts as 10x
A hand [5x] holding orange [things] [2x] counts as 10x
A hand [5x] holding oranges [2x] and green [things] counts as 10x because we cannot count a grammatically non homogeneous list. Another way of looking at this is that the body part triggers a count of nouns (the grammatical format of the first element in the list), not of adjectives (the grammatical format of the second element in the list).
A hand [5x] holding oranges [2x] and lemons [2x] counts as 20x because a list count has started and the second item is homogeneous with the first. The count is forced on the first item because 'hand' is a body part. The list is too short to be self triggering, but is triggers by the body part.
Lists which define a general category and then list specific items in that category are comparisons and so count. We think inclusively because all the items are included in the category.
Lists which repeat any word with each item are begging to be counted! We think these may count exclusively.
38 At that the fire of Jehovah came falling and went eating up the burnt offering and the pieces of wood and the stones and the dust, and the water that was in the trench it licked up (1Kings 18)??
We now think that the counting dimension of the code only applies to lists and to comparisons. For example...
6 And Jehovah himself had caused the camp of the Syrians to hear the sound of war chariots, the sound of horses, the sound of a great military force (2Kings7)
The day of Jehovah (Zephaniah 1:14-16 NIVHEOT)
14 The great day of Jehovah is near. It is near, and there is a hurrying [of it] very much. The sound of the day of Jehovah is bitter. There a mighty man is letting out a cry.
15 That day is a day of fury, a day of distress and of anguish, a day of storm and of desolation, a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick gloom,
16 a day of horn and of alarm signal, against the fortified cities and against the high corner towers.
17 And I will cause distress to mankind, and they will certainly walk like blind men; because it is against Jehovah that they have sinned. And their blood will actually be poured out like dust, and their bowels like the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them in the day of Jehovah's fury; but by the fire of his zeal the whole earth will be devoured, because he will make an extermination, indeed a terrible one, of all the inhabitants of the earth (Zephaniah 1)
|The great day of Jehovah is near|
|(It is near) and there is a hurrying of it very much|
|The sound of the day of Jehovah is bitter|
|There is a mighty man letting out a cry|
|Day of wrath, the day the that||1x|
|Day of distress and anguish||2x|
|Day of trouble and ruin||2x|
|Day of darkness and gloom||2x|
|Day of cloud and blackness||2x|
Day of trumpet and battlecry
The trumpet and battlecry is upon the fortified cities and their corner towers which are of course connected, since the corner towers are the fortifications for the cities. So its 2x upon 3x (Hebrew plural counts 3x).
14x from 2014Tishri6/7/8 to 2015Heshvan28. Zephaniah says...
18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them in the day of Jehovah's fury; but by the fire of his zeal the whole earth will be devoured, because he will make an extermination, indeed a terrible one, of all the inhabitants of the earth [from 2015Ab10 to 2015Tishri29] (Zephaniah 1).
Revelation 18:11-13 (Greek Interlinear)

The Mark of the Beast (Revelation 13)
|And it [the 2 horned beast] is making all [ones] [accusative]|

|and in order that, no one may be able to buy or to sell|
if not the one having the engraving, [which is] the name of the wild beast [a covenant with it to get its name], or the number of the name of it
6 plurals compared to one plural. 6 months inclusively for the ban to take effect. 6 months of effectiveness thereafter (the hand + the forehead)..
The Great Crowd in the 5 Colonnades of John 5
3 In these a multitude of the sick [ones], blind [ones], lame [ones] and withered [ones], was lying down [is this 8x from 2006Sivan/Tammuz when JWs who believed in our work started lying down by the baptism pool waiting for a sign, to 2014Elul28/29, the sign for which they had been waiting. The man sick for 38 years is the Watchtower after they gave up on chronology in 1975. So the 38 years run from 1975Tishri1 to 2013Tishri1 but not to 2014Tishri1. The Watchtower thought that the world would end on 1975Elul30].
The Great Crowd of Revelation 7:9
9 After these things I saw, and, look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number [1x], out of every nation [pantoV and ethnoV and both singular] and tribes and peoples and tongues [2x+2x+2x+2x=8x] [from 2014Tishri6/7/8 to 2015Sivan15/16] standing before the throne [saints - with rulership] and before the Lamb [priests], dressed in white robes [sealed into the CRC]; and there were palm branches in their hands.
Every nation is a plural and counts as 2x.
So the great crowd is chosen during 9 months.
The things God rocks in Haggai 2
6 For this is what Jehovah of armies has said, 'Yet once -- it is a little while -- and I am rocking
the heavens [dual/plural]
and the earth and the sea and the dry-ground [counts
7 and I will rock all the nations [3x] and the desire of all the nations [the 1NC reserves], they shall go in [3x] and I will fill this house with glory [1x], [counts as 7x] (Haggai 2).
Surely that is a further 13x of verse 6 and verse 7 from 2014Elul28 to 2014Tishri10 when Jesus, the desire of all the nations, enters into the temple of the LWs/Zoar.
In verse 6 God is rocking things. In verse 7 God will rock things. The present tense refers to the repeated festival of Cakes. The rocking of verse6 must therefore entirely precede the rocking of verse7. So we see finally that verse6+verse7 together count as 13x from 2014Elul28-2014Tishri10.
All the nations counts 3x, as a normal Hebrew plural, it being 100% of 'the nations'.
Paul's list of Kingdom Failures
12 saying with a great voice, 'Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive the power, and wealth, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing!' [7x not 8x, from 2014Tishri16 to 2015Sivan11? We got the first seal of Revelation6, that dates are expressed in terms of festivals on 2014Sivan6].(Revelation 5 YLT)
Any list with 3 or more items has a sentence count.
The dryness of Haggai
11 And I kept calling for dryness [1x] upon the earth [1x], and upon the mountains [3x], and upon the grain [1x], and upon the new wine [1x], and upon the oil [1x], and upon [that] which the ground brings forth [1x], and upon earthling man [1x], and upon domestic animal [1x], and upon all the toil of [the] palms [2x: some of the toil + the rest of the toil] [A Classic list count of 13x 2001Heshvan10 to 2014Heshvan10].' (Haggai 1).
The spirits of Haggai
14 And Jehovah proceeded to rouse up the spirit of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people [List of spirits counting as 3x] and they began to enter in and to do the work in the house of Jehovah of armies their God  (Haggai 1)

5 and the food of his table [1x] and the seating of his servants [1x] and the table service of his waiters [1x] and garments of them [3x] and his cupbearers [3x] and his burnt offering [1x] that ascended at the house of Jehovah [list counts 12x/14x from ? to 2015Elul27, the last day of JAC ark based interaction with the world?], then there proved to be no more spirit in her [All the saints had left the church and were now in the ark permanently] (1Kings 10).
Sheep and Goats
35 For I
became hungry and you gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and you gave me
something to drink. I was a stranger and you received me hospitably,
36 naked, and you clothed me. I fell sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to me [6x predicaments and 6 loving responses. 6 months from 2015Nisan22, when the 3HSC takes over Zoar to 2015Tishri14, the 3rd adamic Passover]
37 Then the righteous ones [the sons of the CRC and FRC] will answer him with the words, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink?
38 When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you?
39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to you? [5x predicaments and 5x loving responses. 5 months from 2015Nisan22 to 2015Elul29/30, the end of FRC testing]
40 And in reply the king will say to them, Truly I say to you, To the extent that you did it to one of the least of these my brothers [in the JAC], you did it to me .
17 Because thou sayest: I am rich [interpretationally] and have acquired-riches [not having made the interpretations myself, not having bought them from Jesus by direct research] and do not need anything at all [3 ways of saying I am wealthy, counts 3x], but you do not know [because they believe not in God's word but in what they are told by the evil slave who keeps them in the dark] you [AOL, the Angel of Loadicea] are miserable and pitiable and poor and blind [interpretationally] and naked [having no priestly garments and open to every sort of abuse being brainwashed, having no defence against priestly abuse. The worst condemnation in all the counsels. There is nothing good that these guys are commended for. Counts 5x from the loss of water baptism on 2009Elul10 to 2014Adar3-7 - when, through the 2nd/3rd fire signs of 1Kings18, they find out just how miserable and pitiable and poor and blind and naked they really are] (Revelation 3).
Daniel2: The stone strikes the feet of iron and clay
34 You continued until a stone was cut out without hands [Counts 10x which are 10 months. This being the period when the terrorist attack which causes the image to stumble is hatched and perfected? These would run from 2013Shebat to 2014Chislev9/10?], which struck the image on its feet which [comprised] iron and clay [counts 2x or 10x or both. The stone strike the UK foot and the US foot. Are there 10 days between the strikes?], and broke them to pieces [two pieces, the sons of the kingdom and the sons of Gehenna - the sons of iron and the sons of clay].

19 And I, even I, well know that the king of
Egypt will not give you permission to go except by a strong hand [5x
20 And I shall have to stretch out my hand and strike Egypt [5x of fulfilment. The count stops here since there was only one intention. So that makes 5x+5x=10x. Egypt was of course struck 10x with the Ten Plagues. Likewise in the greater meaning. When Jesus counted all his bones, there was a fulfilment immediately and then another today] with all my wonderful acts that I shall do in the midst of it; and after that he will send you out.
616 of Revelation 13
1 And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having
7 heads [7x] and 10 horns [10x], and on his horns
10 diadems [10x], and on its heads names of
blasphemy [7x] [Total = 34x].
2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard [1x a comparison], and its feet as of a bear [4x a comparison - Bears have 4 feet], and its mouth as a lion's mouth [7x.30x=210x a comparison - Lions mouths have 30 teeth. The tongue although in the mouth is connected not to the mouth but to the throat. 30 instruments in 7 heads. Mouth is singular because the 7 heads are successive in time. They are not concurrent. 7 symbolises temporal succession, since God counts time in 7s. There are 7 days in the week which are not concurrent but consecutive]. And the dragon gave its power to it, and its throne, and great authority. [Counts 3x. Total= 1+4+210+3 =218x]
3 And one of its heads, as having been slain to death [an event - does not count], and its deadly wound was healed [1x a comparison and a feature - does count - it has a healed wound]. And all the earth wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast; who is able to make war with it? [0x. We count numbers, body parts, comparisons and lists]
5 And a mouth speaking great [things] [30x.2x=60x] and blasphemies was given to it [30x.2x=60x. The body part, mouth, forces the count on the non homogeneous list]. And authority to act 42 months was given to it [42x].
6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemy toward God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle, and those tabernacling in Heaven. [0x. We count numbers, body parts, comparisons and lists]
7 And it was given to it to war with the saints, and to overcome them [2x part of the list of given things]. And authority was given to it over every tribe [2x] and people [2x - every people] and tongue [2x - every tongue] and nation [every nation in the beast, the UN, that is 193 nations from 2011July14 when South Sudan joined up. Total = 201] (Revelation 13 - corrected from the Greek. The GLT/YLT/KJV all omits the word 'people' from this verse. The NWT includes it as do the Greek Texts).
Total list/comparison count = 34x + 218x + 1x + 60x + 60x + 42x + 201x = 616x
In the above count we say that a hand only counts as 5x because it has 5 fingers and no other countable items attached to it. So a lion's mouth counts as 30x since it has 30 teeth and nothing else attached to it since the tongue is attached to the throat and since a lion has no lips. But a leopard's head has 2 ears, 2 eyes, 2 nostrils and one mouth, so it has no unique count and so we do not count anything on a head. A mouth is 2 jaws which count as two rows of teeth i.e. 30x in the case of a lion and 32x in the case of a man. Just as 2 feet count as 10 toes and 2 hands count as 10 fingers. In fact you can make a kind of mouth by putting your two palms together at the wrists and opening and closing your two hands like a crocodile. These two hand together count as 10 fingers not 2 hands.
1 And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having
7 heads [7x. (2 ears, 2 nostrils, 2 eyes and 1
mouth)=49x] and 10 horns [10x], and on his horns
10 diadems [10x], and on its heads names of
blasphemy [7x] [Total = 76x].
2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard [A comparison with 4 legs, 1 head, 1 tail, 1 anus, 2 balls, 1 male organ = 10], and its feet as of a bear [4x - Bears have 4 feet], and its mouth as a lion's mouth [7x.31x=217x - Lions mouths have 30 teeth and 1 tongue. 31 instruments in 7 heads. Mouth is singular because the 7 heads are successive in time. They are not concurrent. 7 symbolises temporal succession, since God counts time in 7s. There are 7 days in the week which are not concurrent but consecutive]. And the dragon gave its power to it [1x], and its throne [1x], and great authority[1x]. [Total= 10+4+217+3=234x]
3 And one of its heads [1x], as having been slain to death [an event - does not count], and its deadly wound was healed [a feature - does count]. And all the earth wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast; who is able to make war with it? [0x. We only count a list of seen features of the beast or a list of things given to it]
5 And a mouth speaking great [things] and blasphemies was given to it [31x.2x=62x. Non homogeneous list, only count the first item]. And authority to act forty two months was given to it [42x].
6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemy toward God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle, and those tabernacling in Heaven. [0x. We only count a list of seen features of the beast or a list of things given to it]
7 And it was given to it to war with the saints, and to overcome them [2x]. And authority was given to it over every tribe [2x] and people [2x - every people] and tongue [2x - every tongue] and nation [every nation in the beast, the UN, that is 193 nations from 2011July14 when South Sudan joined up. Total = 201] (Revelation 13 - corrected from the Greek. The GLT/YLT/KJV all omits the word 'people' from this verse. The NWT includes it as do the Greek Texts).
Grand total count of the seen features of the beast and things given to it is 76+234+1+62+42+201 = 616.

I Count all my Bones
14 I am poured out like waters, and all My
bones are spread apart [therefore
he was not impaled, he was crucified arms and legs apart. This is the Passover
door symbolism]. My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My bowels.
15 my strength is dried up like a clay-pot; and my tongue clings to my jaws;
16 and you appoint me to the dust of death; for dogs have encircled me; a band of spoilers have hemmed me in, piercing my hands and my feet.
17 I count all my bones; they look, they stare at me [The enemies or the bones!].
18 They divide my garments among them, and they made fall a lot for my clothing (Psalm 22).
There are 206 bones in the human body. This was a Passover prophecy for Jesus, for the day he died, which was 33Nisan14. In the first fulfilment there may well have been 206 baptised disciples at the time of his death. Only 120 actually gathered in the upper room in Jerusalem in Acts 1. The skeleton was those who responded to his direct ministry before he died. The flesh were those we joined the skeleton after he died.
The bones in the greater meaning are the skeleton of the 1NC reserve bride (bones noun counts 2x so has one greater meaning. There are two word symbolic threads since David says in verse 1 the double exclamation: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Perhaps 206 1NC reserve saints attend the first or second new Passover? They look on 2011Tishri14. They stare on 2011Heshvan14, when the last Watchtower 1NC reserve comes in to the LWs. These bones exist for another 206 days to 2012Sivan10, when they die being appointed to the dust of death on that day. The flesh, the rest of the wife, comes in on 2011Chislev14.
Deeper but incorrect analysis...
14 I am poured out like waters [3x, 3 water baptisms for the 1NC reserves at 3 New Passovers on 2014Adar14 and 2015Nisan14 and 2015Iyyar14], and all My bones [206x] are spread apart [the first New Passover spreads 206 1NC reserve bones apart a bone for a house];
My heart [1x] is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my inwards/bowels [3x] [3 nights of heart melting panic for 1NC reserves].
15 My strength is dried up like a clay-pot [1x]; and my tongue
clings to my jaws [1x.32x, 16 human teeth per
16 and you appoint me to the dust of death [1x] [Total is 34x from 1978 to 2012Sivan10]; for dogs [3x] have encircled me [3 years]; a company of evildoers has surrounded me, piercing my hands [dual 5x = 10x] and my feet [dual 5x = 10x] [total is 23x from 1978 to 2001, when the last 1NC non reserve died. Fred Franz became president on 1977Tammuz4. His first regnal year was 1978. Ed Dunlop was disfellowshipped in 1979 and Ray Franz in 1981. So it appears that Jesus lost his power in the WTBTS in the first regnal year of Franz].
17 I count all my bones; they look, they stare at me [The
enemies or the bones!].
18 They divide my garments among them, and they made fall a lot for my clothing (Psalm 22).
7x.206x = 1442x from 2008Nisan14 to 2012Nisan16?
THESE COUNTS ARE NOT CORRECT YET...
Nebuchadnezzar's recital of his dream (Daniel 4:10-12, NIVHEOT, New International Version Hebrew English Old Testament)
Here are some counts of Daniel 4...
|And visions of my head upon my bed, I was beholding||3x.|
|a tree in the middle of the land||1½x|
|and height of him enormous||1x|
|he grew large the tree (trigger)||1x|
|and he grew strong||1x|
|and height of him touched to the skies||2x|
|and visibility of him [touched] to end of all of the earth||2x|
|leaf of him beautiful||1x|
|and fruit of him abundant||1x|
|and food of all in him||3x|
|under him she found shelter, beast of field||2x|
|and in branches of him they lived, birds of the airs||10x|
|and from him, he was fed, every creature||2x|
Total of 27½x = 27½ times. But these are multiplied by the 3x of visions upon the bed:
3x.27½x=82½x, 82½ times, we take as 82½ years in the case of FDS3 from 1919Nisan1, the first day of activity after the GB was released from prison, to 2001Tishri30, when the Watchtower lost their water baptism and their authority to feed anyone.
'Birds of the airs' are the remnant of the bride, the first new covenant saints. They took centre position in the earth when they were appointed over all belongings in Nisan 1918. But they could not do much feeding at that time due to WW1 and the due to leadership being sent to prison on 1918Iyyar25. Every creature is being fed 'at the proper time'. The branches of this tree of Moses are the 5 watches of the Watchtower.
|in visions of my head upon my bed, I was beholding||6x.|
|watcher and [he was a] holy one, from the heavens coming down. [Hebrew has a colon for the end of a sentence]||2x./4x|
|[He was] calling in loudness||2x.|
|and [he was] saying this:|
|Chop down the tree||1x|
|and trim off branches of him||2x|
|Strip off leaf of him||1x|
|and scatter fruit of him||1x|
|let her flee the animal from being under him||2x|
|and the birds from branches of him||4x|
No trigger here. [6x.4x.2x(1x+2x+1x+1x+2x+4x)= 528 days from 2006Iyyar1, the sign of Jonah letter, to 2007Tishri19, when the Watchtower stop feeding??]
19 At that time Daniel himself, whose name is Belteshazzar, was astonished for a moment, and his very thoughts began to frighten him. The king was answering and saying, 'Oh Belteshazzar, do not let the dream and the interpretation themselves frighten you.' Belteshazzar was answering and saying, 'Oh my lord, may the dream [apply] to those hating you, and its interpretation to your adversaries.
|The tree that you saw that||1x.|
|He grew large||1x|
|And he grew strong||1x|
|And top of him he touched to the skies||2x|
|And visibility of him [was] to all of the earth||2x|
|And leaf of him beautiful||1x|
|And fruit of him abundant||1x|
|And food for all in him||3x|
|Under him she found shelter, beast of the field||2x|
|and in branches of him they had nests birds of the airs||8x in 2x = 18x|
No trigger here. The word tree is not repeated. [31x. The above is neither the dream nor the interpretation, it is a recital of the dream by Daniel. This may be 31 months of the growth of the LWs, from 2006Iyyar to 2008Heshvan inclusive. The birds of the airs having nests counts as 18x or 18 months from 2007Sivan to 2008Heshvan inclusive.]
[[An earlier idea we had which was not correct was... This is the presidency of Knorr, from January 13th 1942 until June 8th 1977, or 1941Tebbeth22 to 1977Sivan21. He was the first foolish virgin of Matthew 25 in the second presence. This is the bloom of the Watchtower physically, but just as in the case of our own bodies, when they bloom they are already becoming corrupt with age. The church of Knorr, Pergamum, was the compromising church. The church of Franz, Thyatira, was the corrupt church, and the church of Henschel, Sardis, became the dead church. So Knorr was the beginning of the adversity of the Watchtower to Jesus. This is because the interpretation applies to Jesus' adversaries. The dream also applies to those hating Jesus, because at the end of the JWs the tree is cut down because they end up hating Jesus. Dear oh dear oh dear.]]
The day of Jehovah (Joel 2:1-2 NIVHEOT)
|Blow a horn in Zion||2x|
|And sound alarm on hill of holiness of me||2x|
|Let them tremble, all of ones living of the land||4x|
|Because he comes, day of Jehovah||1x|
|Because close at hand (he is)||1x|
|Day of darkness and gloom (he is)||2x|
|Day of cloud and blackness (he is)||2x|
|Like dawn spreading upon the mountains (he is)||3x|
2x+2x+4x=8x warning from 2007Sivan to 2008Nisan. When the Day of Jehovah starts. And 2x+2x+3x=7x of Day of Jehovah spreading upon the mountains? From 2008Nisan to 2008Heshvan??
Here are two cryptic gems, which we have used to deduce the method of baptism for ‘the life’ - see :
17 And as he was going out on his way, a certain man ran up and fell upon his knees before him and put the question to him: Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit everlasting life? (Mark 10).
Fine so one must fall upon one's knees for a start to get baptised.21 A great number that became believers, turned upon the Lord (Acts 11 NWT/KI).
This means that there is a turning round in one’s baptism.
If a number is recited in scripture without an associated noun or pronoun, then it is meant cryptically in the word symbolic threads.
All bible symbolism is carried in the nouns. So if Pharaoh has a dream about 7 cows, the cows stand for 7 somethings symbolically, and cows always take that meaning in that account. But if Peter stands up with the 11, and we are not told explicitly in that sentence, what the 11 are, then 11 is a flying number and it must be interpreted cryptically in the greater meaning. In other words it can be anything relevant that you want it to be to do with 11. We take it to be 2007Tammuz11 right now!
Our initial problem with this work was the thought that Eli Rips (who founded ELS or Equidistant Hebrew Letter Sequence research) was still a Jew by Religious Persuasion. We thought that he cannot have this right because being a Jew by religion, he has not accepted that Jesus was God’s son, the messiah, and so he has failed to understand even the basic literal dimension of the holy book. It is therefore not reasonable to suppose that he can shed any light on any coded meanings correctly. It's rather like a man with no legs representing that he is a star football player! Gordon's other problem was that Satan always produces fakes to mask the original. There were many false Christ's at the time of the true Christ, Jesus, in his first and his second presence:
5 Many will come on the basis of my name saying: I am the Christ, and mislead many (Matthew 24).
Our work showing that the bible is written in a symbolic code was
published exclusively to the Governing Body of the Jehovah's Witnesses in 1992.
But the first that the world really heard of any bible code was in 1994
(Newton's decoding activities were suppressed when he was alive and only
published very narrowly after he died), when the
paper on ELS was submitted and published by the Statistical Science Journal in
the US, Volume 9, Number 3, August 1994. www.torahcodes.co.il/wrr1/wrr1.htm.
Gordon was prohibited by his understanding of the scriptures from going public
until 1999Elul, 7 years after the first book was
delivered to the HQ of the JWs by Massoud. A statistical refutation of this
paper was published in 1999 in the same Journal by Brendan McKay, D Bar-Natan, M
Bar-Hillel and G Kalai (MBBK) "Solving the Bible Code Puzzle"
Statistical Science 14, pp 150-173
This ELS research appears now to have become a very large commercial empire for Amazon and Michael Drosnin and various publishers, more than it being a religious research program. There have to our knowledge been no further scientific papers in support of it since the first one in 1994, and one against it. Jesus said that you should judge a tree by its fruit. We can see no Christian fruit from this supposed decoding. We can see no academic fruit from this supposed decoding. We can see a whole load of commercial fruit. There has been some good work by Guy Cramer which shows that ELS is just the result of random chance: www.direct.ca/trinity/codebreaker.html & www.direct.ca/trinity/closing.html .
Prof Brendan McKay, who led the scientific refutation paper, has done a lot of great work on debunking ELS.
McKay shows that applying ELS to Moby Dick predicts the assasinations of Martin Luther King, JFK, Yitsak Rabin (the first correct prediction by Eli Rips), Princess Diana, Abraham Lincoln and Indira Gandhi. It even predicts the horrible and grotesque murder of Michael Drosnin himself giving some graphic detail! Basically ELS methodology will give all sorts of interesting predictions from any reasonably long book. It is a statistical phenomenon not a prophetic one. The book of Revelation does say unequivocally and literally that:
10 The bearing witness to Jesus is what inspires prophesying (Revelation 19).
Whereas there is no witness to Jesus in any of the ELS prophecies that we have seen and none in the best selling ELS book 'The Bible Code'. Although there are references to the Messiah (who is yet to put in an appearance!) So this work cannot be a true decoding.
Covers the debate fairly comprehensively. The response from Drosnin to McKays Moby Dick findings was that his Moby Dick results: "Simply do not qualify as code tables". Drosnin wishes to disqualify McKay since that is the only way to beat him. Plainly it matters not whether McKays work is regarded as being qualified by Drosnin. Whatever methodology he used is just as valid and produced results that are just as news worthy as Drosnins - He did not make so much money from it though!
In fact McKay's results are more news worthy! McKay's ELS on Moby Dick is a better predictor of assasinations than Drosnin's ELS on the Torah. This debunks Drosnin ELS completely since Moby Dick was plainly not an inspired book. In fact it disqualies Drosnin's theory that he has found the bible code, not McKays method of refutation.
Incidentally we sent our noun counting data - see U49 to 200 academics including Prof Brendan McKay in video format - see our download page, and asked them to refute it if they could. No one did. We will say this though, the originator of ELS, Eli Rips was a professor of Group theory, and Gordon started his PhD at Oxford in group theory, and group theory is beautiful and exact, it doesn't involve any statistics as does ELS. We cannot help thinking of the quote:
There are lies, damn lies and statistics.
But in any event what use is it telling Yitsac Rabin that he will be assasinated? As the ELS 'code' predicted. This is the sort of thing that fortune tellers do, and if they are wrong they are phoneys and if they are genuine they are getting their knowledge from Satan and are condemned in the literal meaning of the bible, being spirit mediums. 'Beware the Ides of March' was not from God. And it didn't help Julius Caesar. You know it's the same old wolf but in more modern sheep's clothing.
Now here is the thing. Does a literal account have a straight symbolic meaning as well as a coded symbolic meaning? Does a symbolic account such as a dream or a parable or a vision have a straight symbolic meaning as well as a coded symbolic meaning?
These two questions troubled Gordon for 9 years until the end of 2001. But as usual once the question is asked in the correct way, the answer is not far off. As regards Gordon, who is the antetypical Daniel, who was named Belteshazzar by Nebuchadnezzar (he went in for slightly longer names than the Hebrews did), it is true in his experience, when he makes the effort that he should, then as the King himself said:
9 Oh Belteshazzar the chief of the magic-practicing
priests, because I myself well know that the spirit of the holy gods is in you and that there is no
secret at all that is troubling you, tell [me] the visions of my dream that I have beheld and its
interpretation (Daniel 4).
But this one thing about symbolic symbolism, straight symbolism and coded symbolism had eluded him for 9 years. During this time, Gordon had prayed many a time and had asked the true God and said to him: Oh Jehovah, who has chosen me out of all of the wise men on this earth to reveal his secrets to. If it pleases you, will you show this great bible code to others of your sons who can help me in the great work that I am commissioned to do. For I am but one man and your book was written by the Father of all minds for every human mind which can read or which can listen to another one who is reading. And the true God himself had for many years effectively been answering and saying: Oh Gordon, my son, it is you whom I have chosen to talk to face to face, and you can carry this burden, and I will help you to do so. For he has said in many places in the bible:
4 Jehovah has sworn (and he will feel no regret): You are a priest to time indefinite, according to the manner of Melchizedek! (Psalm 110).
And Gordon has known for a long time that these words apply to Jesus and himself and others. But he is made very happy by the true God when one of his brothers sorts out a biblical problem for him. Because then he knows that God has blessed his brother as he has blessed Gordon, and so Gordon is not alone in God's love in this respect. Of course it is wonderful to be a son, but it is better when you have some brothers and sisters.
If the reader is a boss, he will know how easy it is to get employees to park their backsides in his office, and yet how hard it is to get them to take their brains out of their parking spaces and use them to solve business problems. How happy a boss is when a member of staff expends brain power not on his own salary calculations or on his social advancement, or on making sure that come what may he is out of the office by 5:25 pm, but rather he expends it on the business which employs him. How wonderful it is when the business falters and someone else runs to pick it up before the boss gets there.
So this is what happened in the case of the number of types symbolic meanings that an account might have. Gordon asked the question at a study group:
Does the book of Revelation have a literal meaning of the type that, yes, John did actually see a harlot on a beast, and a straight symbolic meaning, the event symbolism, a simple symbolism (of the type that Jesus explained in the case of the parable of the Sower of Mark 4 - see ) and a coded symbolic meaning, the account symbolism, the word symbolism (of the type that Jesus explained in the case of the parable of the wheat and the weeds of Matthew 13). Or does it only have a literal meaning and a coded symbolic meaning?
It was Lee, who straight away came up with the answer, in the form of the first two verses of Revelation:
1 A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave
him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place. And he sent forth
his angel and presented [it] in signs through him to his slave John,
2 who bore witness to:
the word God gave
and to the witness Jesus Christ gave,
even to all the things he saw (Revelation 1).
Obviously 'all the things he saw' is the literal account, 'the word God gave' is another meaning and 'the witness Jesus Christ gave' is yet another meaning. So there must be both an Event symbolism and a Word symbolism.
As mentioned above John is bearing witness to 'The word God gave'. This therefore is a witness to God's words themselves which is the word symbolic meaning. John is also bearing witness to the (symbolically expressed) witness that Jesus gave him in the form of the vision, this then is the event symbolic account, the symbolic meaning of the events of the vision.
|All the things he saw||Literal account of the vision|
|The Word God gave||Coded word symbolic meaning of the vision|
|The Witness Jesus Christ gave||Straight event symbolic meaning of the vision|
By the Consistency Principle, this structure must apply to all symbolic accounts in the bible, such as parables, visions, dreams etc. Then Gordon was able to put the whole jigsaw together. Now in Daniel 4, the straight event symbolism cannot apply to the whole chapter as the Reverend John Aquila Brown, the second adventists and Charles Russell thought or you end up with Jesus being counselled as follows:
27 Therefore, Oh king, may my counsel seem good to
you, and remove your own sins by righteousness, and your iniquity by showing mercy
to the poor ones. Maybe there will occur a lengthening of your prosperity
which counsel plainly does not apply to Jesus. From this we deduce that literal accounts do not have straight symbolic meanings. So putting these together we get:
 Literal bible accounts only have a coded account symbolic meaning
 Symbolic bible accounts have a straight event symbolic meaning and a coded account symbolic meaning.
 Accounts which contain both literal and symbolic portions, such as dreams explanations and fulfillments, obey the two rules above for their respective portions.
So in the case of Daniel 4, since the chapter is not an entirely symbolic account, but contains various literal portions, it can not have one straight symbolic meaning that applies throughout the account. Such a meaning could not apply to the literal parts of the account, such as Daniel's explanation of the dream and the fulfillment of the dream. However the dream itself has both a straight symbolic explanation, which is the one that Daniel interpreted, and resulted in Nebuchadnezzar spending 7 years living like a wild animal. The coded symbolic interpretation of the dream gives the Gentile Times and actually the chronology and activities of FDS3 and FDS4 - see .
This then is the true generalisation (as far as we can see it today) of the Reverend John Aquila Brown's astonishing interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's dream of Daniel Chapter 4, as having in addition to the interpretation of the dream by Daniel, a greater symbolic meaning relating to the Gentile Times. This generalisation extends his revelation to cover every literal and every symbolic portion of every chapter in the bible:
In fact a literal meaning is an event symbolic meaning with the identity (unity) symbolism. For non mathematicians, the identity symbolism is where an orange stands for an orange and a lemon stands for a lemon. It is the symbolism where the symbolic meaning is the literal meaning.
It was of course God, who through Jesus, opened Lee's eyes to help Gordon out here. We do not like to say this sort of thing very much, because these types of statements have been abused to the point of total numbness by so many false religions in the past. But when Gordon is too weak to carry on, or to tired to jump a particularly high fence, then the holy spirit just lifts him right up and it carries him right over. When the spirit helps, the answer appears almost effortless!
Most times one doesn't even realise that God has helped. Because notwithstanding all of the praise scattered throughout the bible, God is not interested in praise, he wants love and gratitude. The preponderance of praise exists to prevent his enemies from reading the bible. He doesn't go in for fanfare, trumpet blasts, drum rolls, medal pinning ceremonies, Oscar nominations, or long acceptance speeches. When Jesus died for all mankind, where was the applause? And who has done any better than him? When he cried out in his agony with his dying breath to the creator of every atom in the universe saying: Father receive my spirit, did God even make a response that he was aware of?
One day we, the grateful ones, will know how much God has done for us, and we will be flabbergasted. Until then, on the odd occasion when one realises that he has helped, one can feel his love in real time and that is something.
Yes, the true heroes and heroines of this system of things are unsung. They give without recompense from the world, they succeed without recognition from the world, they teach without qualifications from the world and they die with hardly a friend in the World. They save whilst being condemned by the world, they spread the truth whilst being lied to by the world, and lied about by the world. They keep their reason in a world with so little of it and they keep their love, a silent victory, whilst they drown in the deafening roar of self defeating self interest and hatred.
In word symbolism...
450 prophets of Baal go dancing and then 450 prophets of Baal go
swimming 450x then 450x
450 prophets of Baal go dancing and then they go swimming 450x then 450x
450 prophets of Baal go dancing and then the prophets of Baal go swimming 450x then 450x
If the 450 prophets are referred to by a noun or a pronoun then they count 450x. But in the case of Jesus taking 7 loaves and breaking ['them' omitted]. The breaking counts 1x not 7x.
If a number has no associated noun it is some type of a wild card. It can mean whatever you like. It is not necessarily a time period.
Blessed are the bakers,
the ones baking bread from wheat
These friendly and happy bakers provide bread for men and loaves for the sons of Adam
For the bakers have the power to change wheat, even harvested wheat, into finished bread.
And the loaves were very good loaves.
Key symbolism from the double articulation is in providing 'bread' for everyone. Bread means spiritual food in word1 and means sealed Christians in word2. Wheat, Bread, Bakers, Loaves appear 3x and so have 2 greater meanings.
Bread is 1: Simply presented understandings. 2: Sealed Christians.
Loaves is 1: Bound books of simply presented understandings. 2. Tribe of sealed Christians
Wheat is 1: Bible interpretation. 2: Sanctified Christians.
Bakers are 1: 2NC priests. 2: Angels.
Bill's Principle: In each account, a word taking different symbolic meanings, has all these meanings being of the same general symbolic type. In other words all symbolic meanings of seas are structureless somethings, all trees are rooted somethings etc.
Here is a list of the names of the 10 pre-flood patriarchs...
or Owner or Sorrow
Praise of God or The Fame of God or The Glory of God.
|Initiated or Dedicated or Trained|
|Man of the missile/dart or His death shall bring.|
or Poor or Strikerdown.
|Rest or Comfort|
Putting all of this together we get...
A man is appointed, a mortal man of possession. The glory of God shall come down, trained. His death shall bring the grieving/manslayer comfort.
Well, that would appear to have been the plan! This man was obviously Jesus Christ. Incdentally Methuselah died in 2371, the year of the flood. His death did bring the flood! The bible patriarchs and he Hebrews that followed them (the sons of Eber) often had names with meanings relation to the circumstances of their birth. The bible gives us the meaning of the names of the Partiarchs: Adam, Cain, Seth, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (and all 12 sons), Perez, Peleg and Jesus, showing us why these names were chosen by the parents.
Here is a more detailed analysis of the names of these patriarchs.
"Mankind" (Comes from the word meaning, "to be red",
as in the red earth [or red blood?])
"placed"; "put". 25 And Adam
proceeded to have intercourse again with his wife and so she gave birth to
a son and called his name Seth, because, as she said: “God has appointed
another seed in place of Abel (Genesis 4)
but sounds like, and is related to the word for a 'dirge' or a 'wailing
chant', hence "sorrow"
Praise of God”; "The Fame of God"; "The Glory of
God". 3 He is the reflection of [his] glory and the
exact representation of his very being, and he sustains all things by the
word of his power; and after he had made a purification for our sins he
sat down on the right hand of the Majesty in lofty places. (Hebrews 1)
"dedicated". Strongs says, "A primitive root; properly to
narrow; figuratively to initiate or discipline: - dedicate, train up."
of the missile/dart”; "His death shall bring". The latter
reading is the more sure (though not according to etymology) in that
"His death brought" the flood; that is, Methuselah died just
months before the flood. Nevertheless, even the name "Man of the
dart/spear" perhaps suggests the type of death that Messiah would
die, for "He was pierced for our transgressions," (Isa. 53).
"poor"; "the strikerdown". These are all possible
meanings, but none are certain. What is for sure, however, is that the
name sounds like the Hebrew phrase, "Lamoch", meaning,
"To sink down in despair", and so it is rendered here.
or “comfort” 29
And he proceeded to call his name Noah, saying: “This one will bring us
comfort from our work and from the pain of our hands resulting from the
ground which Jehovah has cursed. (Genesis 5)

From this specific realization we can deduce that all names mentioned in the Scriptures are of prophetic importance. This seems to be true also of geographic places names.
Peter stood up with the 11, or The 70 sent out are examples of a number of people without a noun. In the greater meaning these do not mean time periods because no symbolic substitution can be made. So the symbolism if more or less invariant. In other words we still have 11 people and 70 people in the greater meanings. 70 presidents of true churches in the case of Luke 10.
1 After these things the Lord designated 70 others and sent them forth by twos in advance of him into every city and place to which he himself was going to
come (Luke 10)..
17 Then the 70 returned with joy, saying: Lord, even the demons are made subject to us by the use of your name (Luke 10).
14 But Peter stood up with the 11 and raised his voice and made this utterance to them: Men of Judea and all you inhabitants of Jerusalem, let this be known to you and give ear to my sayings (Acts 2).
These 11 may be 2NC apostles in the greater meaning since they were 1NC apostles in the literal meaning.
What is an acrostic? According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrostic,
‘acrostic’ comes from the late Greek akróstichon, from ákros,
"top", and stíchos, "verse" is a poem or other
writing in an alphabetic script,
in which the first letter, syllable or word of each line, paragraph or other
recurring feature in the text spells out another message.
Distinctive are the acrostic, or alphabetic, psalms. (Ps
9, 10, 25, 34, 37, 111, 112, 119, 145) In these psalms the initial verse or
verses of the first stanza begin with the Hebrew letter ´a´leph, the
next verse(s) with behth, and so on through all or nearly all the letters
of the Hebrew alphabet. This arrangement may have served as a memory aid. These
are obvious acrostics. However, there seems that there is a secret acrostics in
the bible as well. 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 ltter 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.
From Adam come 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. 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 bible 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 Jesus who ultimately
completes the genealogy!
Adam [~da] Seth [tX] Enosh [Xwna] Kenan [!nyq] Mahalalel [lallhm] Jared [dry] Enoch [$wnx] Methuselah [xlXwtm] Lamech [$ml]. We take the last letters of each word and read them right to left as the Hebrews do.

I will forgive them that rose up against me, having compassion, forgiving those

tnX rp[X aXn
Forgiving those made from dust a second time.
the acrostic from Cain's genealogical line reads:
I will choose a circumcised people, even peoples, for myself.
This is a great proof that the bible is written in a code.
THIS MAY BE INCORRECT
WE NOW THINK THAT THE COUNT ONLY APPLIES IF IT IS TRIGGERED BY A PROPHETIC FORM...
If we now apply the Consistency Principle to this, then what this crazy phraseology is saying is not that 3.5 times is being expressed as a singular time, a plural time and a half time, but that everything in the bible can be expressed as a singular time a plural time or a half time.
For Solomon has said:
1 For everything there is an appointed time, even a time for every affair under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 3).
This is a repetition. So yes there is an appointed time for everything, but applying the Repetition Principle there is also another meaning to this scripture, a further fulfillment. This is that there is a time count on every sentence in the bible. David also spoke of this count under inspiration saying:
12 Show us just how to count our days in such a way as to bring a heart of wisdom in (Psalm 90).
Because days or years or months are all times, see - The Times Principle of the code. So the request is equivalent to: Show us how to count 'times'. So let’s be like the tribe of Issachar, and the wise men of Persia:32 And of the sons of Issachar having a knowledge of how to discern the times to know what Israel ought to do, there were two hundred head ones of theirs, and all their brothers were at their orders (1 Chronicles 12)
13 And the king proceeded to say to the wise men having knowledge of the times, for in this way the king's matter [came] before all those versed in law and legal cases (Esther 1)
Jesus said to his disciples:7 It does not belong to you to get knowledge of the times or seasons which the Father has placed in his own jurisdiction (Acts 1).
But to us, this knowledge does belong. So we can apply a count to every word in the bible, assigning it one time if it is singular, two times if it is plural and half a time, if it is a half of something.
The philosophy of the count on each sentence is that the count is: The number of times represented by the sentence, which is the number of situations or actions in the sentence. The count works like this:
|Singular words count as||one time|
|Plural words count as||two times|
|Fractions or parts of anything count as||half a time|
|and, or, but, upon, with, after, before||add|
|into, out of, of, from, until, under||multiply|
This is not the noun count of U49. It is a sentence count, in which every word must be taken into account. The count works on the Hebrew and Greek original text, not on any translation unless it is a count transparent translation, and no-one has yet made such a translation. The General basis of the count is that any sentence represents a number of times. For example the sentence:
'The kings ate the potatoes'
counts as 4 times, because this action effectively occurs 4 times because two kings are eating two potatoes and so a king is eating a potato 4 times. We say two kings because plurals count as 2 'times'. This is actually an integral part of Hebrew Grammar, which is the code of the language of the bible, from a linguistic point of view. Hebrew has singular, plural and dual (or double) mode. We take all plurals as duals from a counting point of view. The import of this is that in the greater meaning of the kings eating the potatoes, this meal could have lasted 4 days, 4 months or 4 years, or there might have been 4 greater meals.
We use the abbreviation 3x for 3 times and 2x for 2 times etc. 'All' or 'Every' counts as 2x and multiplies, it is understood as 'some plus the rest'. So that 'all of the horses' counts as 4x, or 4 times.
‘In’ is right distributive and adds like this: x in 2x = x in x + x in x = 2x+2x=4x
x in x =2x
2x in x =3x
2x in 2x =6x
x in 2x =4x
Here are some examples:
all his belongings 4x
men in the house 3x
men in the houses 6x
You need a Greek Interlinear Bible and a Hebrew Interlinear Bible to work with this dimension of the Code. We quote count preserving translations here (interlinear ones normally are). The above may be incorrect we have not really got the sentence count part of the code nailed. It could just be context dependent. For example...
Men in the coffins 4x
Since there is only one man in each coffin! Likewise the phrase...
Souls of men 2x
Is not 4x, since each man only has one soul.
This count takes some getting used to and it is most easily applied to single phrases such as:47 Truly I say to you, He will appoint him over all his belongings (Matthew 24).
All his belongings (pasin toiV uparcousin) counts as 4x
So there are 4 appointments of slaves and stewards that Jesus makes. These are the 4 true Christian religions.5 Look! I am sending to you people Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and fear-inspiring day of Jehovah.
He must turn the heart of fathers back towards sons counts as 4x
So Elijah makes 4 reconciliations between actually previous and succeeding true religions. In fact there are 4 Elijah's, who were John, Paul, Russell and Gordon see - The 4 Elijah's.
Because Jesus said:
Indeed, which father is there among you who, if his son asks
for a fish, will perhaps hand him a serpent instead of a fish? (Luke 11:11).
And yes the third true religion has been in a position to offer its sons, the Great Crowd, who will form the basis of the 4th true religion 'a fish', i.e. entrance into the feeding of the two fishes - see . But they haven't done that, they have offered them a serpent, Satan's internal corruption mouthpiece, corrupting the congregation (Eve) to get at the head one (Adam) - His Modus Operandi has not changed you blind ones!! One should be your head on earth just as one is your head in the heavens. Why therefore do you vote you hypocrites !!
For the serpent was found in the Tree of Knowledge of good and bad, representing God's Rulership over his people. It stands for the corruption from within the true religion.
