What do Bible Codes Have to Say about 911?

The following article appeared in the September, 2002, issue of Bible Code Digest. For a free subscription to this fascinating monthly newsletter, click on link in blue field at the right.

It is a different world than it was a year ago, no question. September 11, 2001, changed everything.

Perhaps the most significant difference for the west has been the confrontation with hatred for Jews and Israel. Not since the Holocaust has anti-Semitism been such a threat to civilization.

On the eve of the terrorist attacks anniversary, we present a report on Bible codes that we have discovered in the past year on the incidents and subsequent events.

More firmly than ever, we do not believe that the codes predict future events, but we do believe that some of them can put current events into perspective, and may even suggest possible outcomes. Most of the long ELSs are very difficult, ambiguous, mysterious, enigmatic and even confusing expressions. Usually, it is unclear who is voicing them and to whom they are directed. It is also unclear when they are to take place.

However, what it boils down to is that there is a great deal in these clusters that shouldn’t be there, according to probability theory. Are the messages in the long terms that we have been finding reliable? Other than a couple of instances that could easily have been coincidence, it is really too soon to tell. But whether they have accurate meanings, or any meanings at all that are clear to us, doesn’t really matter.

Connections Between Clusters and Surface Text

Most often, it seems to us, there is at least as much if not more meaning being communicated between the location of a cluster of codes and the surface text of the Bible that it lies beneath. We first saw this powerfully with the Isaiah 53 codes, where hundreds of ELSs concerning the details of Jesus Christ’s last days tie in with the surface text’s prophetic description of a suffering servant’s ministry and death.

Calculating the odds against these clusters being where they are by chance results in infinitesimally small numbers. Even without consistent clarity in the meanings of the long ELSs, the only conclusion that can be drawn from these calculations is that there is no way these “coincidences” could have taken place purely by chance. The only conclusion that can be drawn from such results is that the Bible must have been authored by a super intelligence. Could it turn out, when all is said and done, that this is is the only valid conclusion that can ultimately be drawn from Bible codes. Only time will tell.

But if there are other conclusions that can be extracted from the codes we have discovered – and we offer them only as possibilities decisively filed under the “if” heading – there are some interesting possibilities to consider.

Possibilities Suggested by the 911 Codes

There seems to be a direct link between the terrorist attacks on the U.S. September 11, 2001, and U.S. support of the modern nation of Israel.

There is some kind of connection between the 911 attacks and Iraq. Saddam Hussein is also connected by the codes with terminal illness. It is not clear, however, whether he is suffering from a terminal illness, or if he is the cause of inflicting terminal illness upon others, as he did with biological weapons used against the Kurdish people in northern Iraq. If the codes are correct, Hussein will not survive as Iraq’s head of state, but there is no indication of when he will be removed or step down.

Al Qaeda leader Abu Zabaidah, captured in Pakistan earlier this year, is providing authorities with valuable information that is helping to bring down the terrorist organization.

Osama bin Laden is dead, according to a number of codes. However, none of these codes are "date stamped."

The U.S. was “awakened” by the 911 attacks, but is now “falling asleep” again.

War seems to be developing over the construction of a new Temple in Jerusalem. As the Bible foretells in the surface text there will be a treaty between the nation of Israel and its enemies that will bring peace to that nation for a period of three and a half years.

This developing war is leading up to the great battle of Armageddon in northern Israel. During this battle, according to the surface text of the Bible, and seemingly confirmed by Bible codes, Jesus Christ will return to earth to set up His kingdom of peace.

U.S. and Israel

The main cluster of codes we found concerning the terrorist attacks is centered in Ezekiel 37, which is mainly concerned with the well known “dry bones” vision of the prophet. Most Bible scholars agree that this is a allegorical picture of the reforming of Israel, which had been dead for centuries and its people dispersed throughout the world. We believe this thematic link strongly indicates a connection between the events of September 11 and the support of the United States for Israel.

911 and Iraq

As to the connection between the 911 attacks and Iraq, we began immediately after 911 to search for terms that would provide insights into the events. Within a week we had found these and others terms as the Ezekiel 37 cluster began to take shape. They seemed mostly to concern implications of the events on the worldwide political stage:

    Imagine a Picture of Terminal Illness. The Days of Saddam Are Over, 20 letters, skip 139. .

    Saddam, Terminal Illness from Everything, 9 letters, skip 141.

    This is the King of Babylon, and By the Vomit You Will Be Imprisoned, 15 letters, skip 5,564. .

In subsequent weeks, we discovered more terms involving Saddam Hussein and Iraq in the Ezekiel 37 cluster, and in another 911 cluster in Ezekiel 7:

    Hussein is Guilty, 7 letters, skips 20,269 and 42,94, both appearing in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    You Will Crush the Guilty Saddam and the Month of Eyar Will be Restful, 19 letters, skip 6,387, appears in Ezekiel 237 and 40 clusters.

    Form Her Heart Toward Him and Let Go. Go Into It. Where? Iraq, 25 letters, skip 19, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Please Value the Day of Might. Who? Iraq. The Song Will Awaken Him, 25 letters, skip 350, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    The Trouble of the New-Born One is Vigilant and Honest Because of the Ruin. Get Out as if Iraq had been Sent Out. The Majority is Aware that, Rest in Peace, You Will Come -- the Villainy with Light. You Will Understand the Heart of Granite, 52 letters, skip 194, appears in Ezekiel 237 and 40 clusters. (The odds against finding this code alone where it is located are less than 5.1417E-58. Note: 1 in 5.2 billion plus 58 additional zeroes.)

Abu Zubaidah

Former high-ranking al Qaeda member Abu Zubaidah is a key figure in the codes we have found since his capture was reported earlier this year. For example, he appears in all of the key terrorism and war clusters we have located so far. One of the Zubaidah codes indicates that he is divulging valuable information to his interrogators. Another seemed to suggest that he would be better “kept in the limelight.” Still another whimsical code seems to be saying that he is in hot water (“what tea is immersed in”).

    Carry the Mountain. Zubaidah will Tell Something of Value as a Gift as the Monument of the Sect is Finished, 27 letters, skip 1,265, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    There is Quarrel in His Speeches. A Living Brother Uttered Words to Them and to Me. And Zubaidah Turned to His Sea, Without Then Lying for a Whole Week. Oh, the Mountain of Her Interior Will Bear a Testimonial to Her Name, 61 letters, skip 4,008. This ELS, to our knowledge the longest ever discovered, appears in Ezekiel 37, 40 and 7 clusters; Micah 5 and Jeremiah 17 clusters.

    You Were Harnessed. Contemplate My Might. Let Zubaidah be Kept in the Limelight. Will They Strike the Sea? 33 letters, skip 7,724, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    He is Being Taught what Tea is Immersed In, Zubaidah, 19 letters, skip 357, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.
Osama bin Laden

Using the five-letter Hebrew spelling for the name Bin Laden, we turned up several references to the terrorist leader and his death. We also found codes that seem to refer to the terrorist’s associations and possible motivations, including demon possession by Bel, an ancient god of the Canaanites and Babylonians, also known as Baal.

    The Farmer of Rome Came. Bin Laden is Dead. The Deep Throat Burned Everything, 25 letters, skip 42,529, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    And Manasseh is Casting a Cloud on Him, and We Will Pick Up the Dead Bin Laden, 23 letters, skip 12,024, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Bin Laden, the Innocent is Moaning. He is Gross With the Blood of the Poor, 19 letters, skip 93, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Yesterday Evening They Whispered, Bin Laden is Dead, 14 letters, skip 17,232, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Bin Laden is Dead. Where is the Monument for the Oppressed? 14 letters, skip 33,908, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Sect of the Billy Goat: Bin Laden, Hand of the Shadow With Them. Strike at His Wine, 26 letters, skip 14,937, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Ptooey! Bin Laden: Lofty Mansion. Bel the Father Comes Into Them, 21 letters, skip 1,386, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Know that the Heart of Bin Laden is Snow, and Silence the Killed, 23 letters, skip 1,149, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    He Will Wonder Where the Hiding Bin Laden is Sleeping (Lodging), 17 letters, skip 5,334, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    Answer Me, Public Representative; Bin Laden is Swallowed In It. Strike Thus. There is Joy Everywhere, 27 letters, skip 8,027, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

The United States

Assuming that the U.S. is cast as the “awakened one” in one of our key findings, it appears that the nation is falling asleep, possibly to the dangers of terrorism and possibly also spiritually. This may refer to the political squabbling in congress over homeland defense and foreign affairs in the wake of 911. The sense of urgency that had these same members of congress singing patriotic songs in the capital building hours after the attacks has certainly experienced deflation since then. In the same code is a suggestion that the terrorism could have been much worse, except for almost divine intervention.

In another ELS, “the island” may refer to the island of Manhattan. “The newborn one” appears in another code, which may be an additional reference to the U.S., in relation to ancient nations such as Israel, Egypt, Iraq and Syria. In still another ELS, “the father’s son” could well refer to President George W. Bush (it is in this code that one of the very few direct references to the U.S. is found).

    Order a Killing and Let it be Stopped, as in a Truly Divine Way. And the Awakened One is Falling Asleep, 28 letters, skip 57, appears in Ezekiel 7 cluster.

    The Island was Restful, Elevated, and It Happened. Where is Libya? And You Have Disrupted the Nation. She Changed a Word. He Answered Them with Combat. Why the Navy and the Smell of the Bottom of the Sea? 53 letters, skip 1,151, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    The Trouble of the New-Born One is Vigilant and Honest Because of the Ruin. Get Out as if Iraq had been Sent Out. The Majority is Aware that, Rest in Peace, You Will Come -- the Villainy with Light. You Will Understand the Heart of Granite, 52 letters, skip 194, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    Let the Oppressed be Congratulated, Saturated from Him at 2001. And Let Them be Guarded by the Echo of the Father's Son, Supported by the U.S. I Will See but He has the Knowledge, 47 letters, skip 1,804, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

The Problem of the Third Temple

The current crisis in Israel began with a visit by Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Pressure is mounting among some orthodox Jews in Israel to get on with the construction of the Third Temple. Solomon completed construction of the first one in 960 B.C. and it was destroyed by the Assyrians. The second was completed in 515 B.C., with extensive remodeling by Herod completed in 4 B.C. It was torn down by the Romans in 70 A.D.

Critical to comprehensive Jewish worship, a temple is believed to be prophesied as existing in the last days. What enrages Muslims is that they have been told that in order to properly build the new temple, Israel plans to tear down the Dome of the Rock mosque, which now stands on the Temple Mount where the previous two temples stood. This mosque is one of Islam’s holiest, built over the rock where Mohammed is said to have been taken up into heaven.

Bible codes we have found that include mention of the temple, or the Temple Mount, appear mostly in Ezekiel 37 and 40. Ezekiel 37 links Israel and the attack on the United States by Islamic extremist terrorists. Ezekiel 40’s cluster was discovered through a search for ELSs of a Hebrew word for war. In the chapter, we discovered a statistically significant number of occurrences of a Hebrew word for war -- 19 occurrences against an expected 6.2. Meanwhile, in the surface text, the prophet is describing his vision of the plans for a new temple.

Predicting war for Israel requires little prescience. Tying it to the rebuilding of a new temple is a little riskier. Some of the following codes apparently do that, especially in the way they interconnect the clusters concerned:

    Rabbi, Behold! The Temple Mount is Dormant. And He Will Deliver the Fallen, as well as My Mother, as She Will See. She Will Lead a Dried Out Enemy With Her Guilt Offering, 47 letters, skip 321, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    The Temple Mount is Poor in My Faith. God and Father as a Friend of the Mountain. And He Stopped from Giving Birth, 28 letters, skip 1,543, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    From a Daughter of His. Where are They From? It is My Season of the Third Temple -- Please, 26 letters, skip 22,004, appears in Ezekiel 37 cluster.

    He Warmed Her. And Where is the Wanderer Going to Come? To the Temple Mount, Where He will Kiss the Mother, 23 letters, skip 527, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    Third Temple -- We Will Get Worse, and With Her You Will Turn to God, 23 letters, skip 22,209, appears in Jeremiah 17 cluster.

    Temple Mount, Be in Dismay, 13 letters, skip 442, appears in Jeremiah 17 cluster.

    They Taught a Flame of Beauty, the Temple Mount, 15 letters, skip 731, appears in Ezekiel 40 cluster, appears 13 times in Ezekiel 40, 11 also appearing in Ezekiel 37.
A Peace Treaty Built on Sand

A newly developing cluster is centered in Daniel 2, whose most interesting section relates the story of Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and Daniel’s interpretation of it:

    ”As you were lying there, O king, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen. As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than other living men, but so that you, O king, may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind.

    “You looked, O king, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them.

    “Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were broken to pieces at the same time and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.

    “This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. You, O king, are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; in your hands he has placed mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds of the air. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold.

    “After you, another kingdom will rise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others.

    “Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

    “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces.

    “The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and the interpretation is trustworthy.” (New International Version)

History has borne out most of this dream and its interpretation, with the kingdom to be set up by God yet to come. Appearing in this cluster is a 41-letter code that may refer to a duplicitous peace treaty formed on a foundation of sand -- not the most dependable of materials. In Daniel 9, the surface text of the Bible speaks of such a treaty to be arranged by the antichrist:

    ”War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. He will confirm a covenant with many for one seven (seven-year period). In the middle of the seven he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation (probably an idol representing himself), until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” (New International Version)

The first part of the following code may confirm Daniel’s prophecy:

    From the Salt of Betrayal and from Fire, a Sand Dune Provided the Foundation for a Peace Treaty. Yah -- indeed God -- Came to the Heights of the Mountain, 41 letters, skip 23,429, appears in Daniel 2 and Ezekiel 37 clusters.


The great war of Armageddon is said by the surface text in Revelation 16:16 to take place on the plain of Jezreel near Mount Megiddo (Har Megiddo, or Armageddon) in northern Israel:

    ”Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.

    “’Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.’ (These are Jesus’ words)

    “Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

    “The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.” (New International Version)

The Armageddon codes we have found link together all of the clusters regarding the U.S., Israel, and the Temple. One added element is Jesus Christ. As He makes a sudden appearance in the midst of the Armageddon surface text in Revelation, prophecy experts believe that He will make a sudden appearance at the Battle of Armageddon.

One of the codes below seems to confirm this belief. God will Provide My Bread at the Utmost Height of Armageddon could be interpreted as saying that Christ will return at the peak of the battle. He said in John 6:35, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”

Branches of some of these codes connect to Christ through clusters about His birth, including the Proverbs 15 cluster on the birth of Christ. There are also the connections to the Micah 5 cluster, which in addition to Armageddon codes, contains several codes about the birth of Christ, and surface text with one of the most important prophecies about the birth of the Messiah, Micah 5:2:

    “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.” (New International Version)

Upon His return, the surface text says that Jesus Christ will set up a kingdom of peace and will reign on earth for 1,000 years.

    Armageddon, Relieving My Heart, Will Waste Away a Quarter Dead. And God is My Refuge, 27 letters, skip 4,246, appears in Ezekiel 37 and 40 clusters.

    Another House Next Door to Armageddon. Have Mercy on Him. Let Her Mind be Renewed by the Accomplishment of God's Flame, 37 letters, skip 17,384, appears in Micah 5 cluster.

    And from Armageddon God has Screamed to Us. And Who has Ambushed Whose Shadow? 29 letters, skip 13,460, appears in Ezekiel 37 cluster.

    God will Provide My Bread at the Utmost Height of Armageddon, 22 letters, skip 6,955, appears in Daniel 2 and Proverbs 15 clusters.

    Armageddon is Truth. They will be Finished and it is Enough, 15 letters, skip 18,901, appears in Jeremiah 17 cluster.

    The Giving is Finished. I Will Give Them from Armageddon, 16 letters, skip 4,246, appears in Ezekiel 40 cluster.

    Armageddon, Whom have You Illuminated? God? 14 letters, skip 13,125, appears in Ezekiel 40 and Jeremiah 17 clusters.

    Armageddon, 6 letters, various skips, appears in Ezekiel 40 and Micah 5 clusters.

Code Skeptics' Arguments Trashed

Ever since the first Bible codes were announced, skeptics have been saying, "Oh, well, you can also find codes like that in books like War and Peace and Moby Dick."

We took the time to examine this notion and the best example of it that the skeptics have been able to come up with. The results of our research have completely blown away their theory.
