The Bible Codes?
Yes the Bible is definitely coded in some way, but I do not believe it is coded by any complex mathematical algorithms and do not need any computer to search through its letters to decode them. I have seen various Books on the Bible Codes and the “search results” of the “codes”. The results on the skip search are usually a main search word and the relevant words of the particular topic are found around the main word. What really stands out to me is that the other so called “relevant” words are found scattered in pieces all over and in all directions. Some word searches could have a letter skip distance of a few thousand. Do you really think that the Truth would be so disorganized? I don’t think Truth looks like that to me. It is obviously a “looking at the things you only want to see”.
For the sake of argument
Anybody who deals with Codes knows that if any one of the coded letters or symbols in the main coded message is misinterpreted or lost, the whole message of the code is corrupted. Do you think God would be wise to hide the Truth in something so fragile as in codes and leave it to the hands of pre-modern Man? What if a letter is hypothetically lost from the Bible, then there is no way Man can ever know the messages of God. Yes! there has been calculated odds of finding any relevant group words in the Torah of being millions to one. But have people forgotten something? The computer is specifically used to search for any possible relevancy, it is used to find that single possibility within millions of odds. Using odds to signify the presence of hidden prophecies is used wrongly here, it is only valid when determining the possibility rate of a single factor in the total sum of factors and how small or big of a chance that single factor will be the one in the final outcome. So if a group of relevant search words are found in the Bible far apart, meaning that a far greater equal-distant skip search is used, the odds would definitely be big. Okay so some relevant historic events in group of letters are found closely, but why are only some of these relevant events found and not the whole of history found in there? Either it is a “looking for what you are looking for” scenario, the codes are badly degraded or there is no such code matrix at all.
The Truth is right there
The Truth is always right there on the Bible pages and one can see it if one really understand the ways of God. The only way one can “decode” the Bible, is simply to use our Mind, the “Supercomputer” God gave everyone of us, by understanding of experience through knowledge.
Matthew 13:10-11 The disciples came to him and asked, "Why do you speak to the people in parables?" He replied, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.
Matthew 13:13-15 This is why I speak to them in parables: "Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: "`You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.'
Matthew 11:25-27 At that time Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
Romans 1:18-19 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
