Christmas Clusters
Take On Apocalyptic

Two compelling Christmas clusters that we first discovered back in 2000 have continued to grow. We have been saving them to share on the eve of this happiest season of the year. In our research of longer and longer codes, some of them have crossed through these Christmas clusters with fascinating results, nothing short of collisions between Christmas and the “end times.”

We began our search for codes about Christmas in the Tanakh a little over two years ago. The first place that we looked was in Micah 5:2, where the village of Bethlehem is mentioned as the birthplace of the Messiah.

    “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah,
    out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

We found a few short terms in the area that were related to the birth of Jesus Christ, but nothing sensational in comparison to other clusters we were working on at the time. Then, during a meeting with Dr. Nathan Jacobi, he informed us of a search he had done for the Hebrew term for Christmas . . .

. . . which literally translates as Holiday of the Nativity. He said he had found it in Proverbs 15 with skip of 19. As far as we can see there is no obvious connection between the cluster and the surface text.

A few days later Dr. Jacobi extended the term from seven to 14 letters, and it then read, Christmas is a Gift to Him and to the Mother. With that as the focal code for a Christmas cluster, we began to look for other terms and before the holidays had come up with an impressive collection of codes about the birth of Christ. In the January 2001 issue we covered it in detail.

It was in late 2001, as we were researching 911 codes, that we began to occasionally find new and fairly lengthy ELSs that passed through one or the other of these two clusters. In fact, as our research of the 911 codes led us into the discovery of codes about apocalyptic subjects, we noticed that there were some of these codes about the end times in Micah 5.

This should not really be surprising, as the rest of the chapter is about the Messiah’s mighty rule over Israel and the rest of the world. In fact, this cluster of Christmas and apocalyptic ELSs could be seen as a confirmation that Jesus is the Messiah.

Probably the most intriguing ELS that crosses this cluster is the longest code yet discovered, a 61-letter term that also passes through three other clusters with end times themes. Some of the longer terms are eerily enigmatic, but each has at least one word that relates it to either the Christmas or apocalyptic themes.

Codes don’t have to be long to be exciting, though. Just a few days before we were ready to “go to press” with this issue, Dr. Jacobi extended the nine-letter term “Jewish Messiah” into a 17-letter ELS, Give Them a Jewish Messiah Who will Become a Priest. One of the intriguing elements of this code is that it passes through not only the Micah 5 and Proverbs 15 clusters, but it also goes through the massive Isaiah 53 cluster concerning the last days of Christ. Another is that it begins just a few letters after the end of the Torah in Joshua 4:8, and ends in the Proverbs 15 cluster. This code seems to echo Hebrews 6:20 which reads, "He (Christ) has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek." And Hebrews 7:21-22, "But He became a priest with an oath when God said to Him, 'The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind: "You are a priest forever,"' Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant."

Both of these ELSs are included in the listing of codes by cluster in the tables below:

The Proverbs cluster has also seen the addition of several new and much longer, apocalyptic terms over the past couple of years
