World Plague ELSs and the
Discovery of Swine Flu Clusters

In our May/June 2009 digest, we reported on the results of our searches for Swine Flu and Mexican Flu, as it is being called in Israel. In addition, we discovered a 666 code intersecting the Swine Flu code. The findings were reported in the Swine Flu article.

On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization upgraded the alert status from epidemic to pandemic. ( See also the World Health Organization update from October 17, 2009.

On October 24, 2009, President Barack Obama declared the spread of the H1N1 Virus (Swine Flu) a national emergency. (

We searched the entire Tanakh (Old Testament) for World Plague, and we searched specifically in Jeremiah 44:6 and Isaiah 8:7 for the terms: Influenza, Pandemic, Pandemic of, Quarantine, Cholera, Swine Plague, Bad Disease, and Satan. Those are the verses where the letters for the word Prince from the The prince loved the vapor of Swine Flu code hit, and both Scriptures speak of God's wrath: first in laying waste cities, and second in bringing floodwaters. It is a very grim intersection in Scripture for these clusters of codes about illness.

Nathan Jacobi, Ph.D., parsed and translated the codes. We did not search for H1N1 Virus, because Jacobi noted there was no Hebrew translation for the name. In Israel, they notate it in English as H1N1 and transliterate the word Virus.

World Plague

We searched for two different spellings of World Plague. Of the first spelling, we examined the five shortest skips in the Tanakh, and four of the five resulted in extensions. Of the second spelling, there were three findings, but none resulted in extensions.

World Plague (1a)

The pain of the world plague
is God's reproach.

This code could be from an individual's point of view, accusing God of sending a world plague as a judgment or punishment.

World Plague (1c)

Please bear and compare the gift of the secret.
The world plague is stopping the father dwelling in God.
The mighty accompanying craftsman is
witness to the stage within them.

This 49-letter-long code begins mysteriously with please bear and compare the gift of the secret. What is the gift of the secret, and how does one bear and compare it?

The world plague is stopping the father dwelling in God seems a little more direct in its language, but it raises the questions, who is the father, and is the father stopped through illness, death, or a loss of faith?

The last portion of the code, the mighty accompanying craftsman is witness to the stage within them sounds like someone with a particular skill is a witness to a drama unfolding in a particular group of people, but we do not know who the witness is or who the group is.

It is possible that as history unfolds, this code may become more meaningful.

World Plague (1d)

Wretched one, the world plague
will have the city expire.
God will bring an end.

In this code, it sounds as though an entire city or perhaps a group of cities will be wiped out due to a world plague. The question then is, will God . . . bring an end to the city, or to the plague? Perhaps the sentence, God will bring an end, is meant as a declaration of faith in God, implying that He will spare the remaining survivors.

World Plague (1e)

World plague from the exalted one to me.

Here is another code that may imply that an individual is blaming God for the plague, or that a world plague is sent from God as a punishment.

Two Swine Flu Clusters

All of the codes in the remainder of the article intersect with the Swine Flu code at Jeremiah 44:6 or Isaiah 8:7

Swine Flu

Given that the remainder of the codes presented in this article cross the Swine Flu code, we will reiterate some of our thoughts on it.

Immediately, we were struck by the parallel of this Bible code with the first two chapters of the Book of Job. Who but the Prince of demons would love the aroma of the Swine Flu? Who but Satan would take pleasure in the suffering and death of men, women, and children from this disease?

The word vapor in this code is particularly relevant, because the Swine Flu spreads primarily through the air. (See numbers six and seven on this page of Swine Flu: Your Questions Answered).

For more information on this code, see the Swine Flu article.


The 666 code would seem to give credence to our interpretation of the Prince in the Swine Flu code being Satan. It could just as easily read, For the sake of glory, Satan intertwined his joy with 666. This code crosses the Swine Flu code in Jeremiah 44:6 (Keys). For more information on this code, see the Swine Flu article.

Extending the Search

We decided to extend the scope of our search for codes related to Influenza and see if any of them intersected with the Swine Flu code. We searched for each of these terms.
  • Influenza
  • Pandemic
  • Pandemic of
  • Quarantine
  • Cholera

In addition we searched for, but did not find any instances of the following in those clusters.
  • Satan
  • Swine Plague
  • Bad Disease

(Published in our previous article, we noted we had searched for Mexican Plague, which is what Swine Flu is being called in Israel, and we also looked for Mexico City. There were no findings for either term in the Tanakh.)

Swine Flu Cluster in Jeremiah 44:6

The following group of codes intersects at Jeremiah 44:6, where the word Prince crosses in the Swine Flu code.

Influenza (1)

Influenza (1.a)

The avian flu is in them.

While we did not set out to search for Avian Flu, this ELS's best translation included that term.

Influenza (1.d)

The excess to the touring from the city—
the flu has risen in you.

This code links travel as a cause of the spread of the flu.

Influenza (1.f)

Your president has experienced the flu.

This code could refer to the president of any country becoming ill, or a wider interpretation could be the move of a president to declare a national emergency, should the flu become even more widespread.

In the U.S., it could indicate that our current president or one of our former presidents might become ill, and as we mentioned earlier in this article, President Obama has already declared a national emergency. (

Quarantine (1)

Quarantine (1.a)

Indeed it is a wonder if a grandson of mine is in quarantine.

This code does not indicate whose grandson is in quarantine, but implies that it is somehow surprising that they would be exposed to a condition that would require quarantine. Perhaps this person is the grandson of a doctor or someone in political office that would have all the advantages of vaccinations and medical care.

Cholera (1)

Cholera (1.b)

God has misled his teacher to ascertain the cholera.

This code may be from Satan's point of view, as it states that God misleads. It reminds us of Satan in the Garden of Eden. Consider how Satan tells Eve that God has ulterior motives in commanding Adam and Eve not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge:
    Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?"

    The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' "

    "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." (Genesis 3:1-5, NIV)

Unlike God, the Devil is known as the Deceiver.
    And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10, NIV)

In Psalm 18:25-27, it indicates that God is shrewd toward the devious (NKJV) or crooked (NIV), and will bring down (NKJV) or bring low (NIV) those who look with haughty eyes, but there is no indication that He misleads in this passage.
    To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
    to the blameless you show yourself blameless,

    to the pure you show yourself pure,
    but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.

    You save the humble
    but bring low those whose eyes are haughty. (NIV)

Jeremiah accuses God of deceiving him and/or His people. Here are two examples.
    Then I said, "Ah, Sovereign LORD, how completely you have deceived this people and Jerusalem by saying, 'You will have peace,' when the sword is at our throats." (Jeremiah 4:10, NIV)

    O LORD, you deceived me, and I was deceived; you overpowered me and prevailed. I am ridiculed all day long; everyone mocks me. Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction. So the word of the LORD has brought me insult and reproach all day long. (Jeremiah 20:7-8, NIV)

Lastly, Scripture repeatedly admonishes not to mislead or deceive. One example is found in Leviticus 19:11.
    Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not deceive one another. (NIV)

This code is another example that supports our belief that codes present various points of view.

Swine Flu Cluster in Isaiah 8:7

The following group of codes intersects at Isaiah 8:7, where the word Prince crosses in the Swine Flu code.

Influenza (2)

Influenza (2.a)

Respond, who has his heart for her?
Where is the potion of the charm?
No, Lord, they weakened to the influenza.

It is widely reported that certain groups of people are particularly at risk for catching the Swine Flu. They weakened to the influenza could refer to those groups.

Pandemic (2)

Pandemic (2.a)

Pandemic, who is my mother, the mark of my trouble?
The burden of the brain has returned,
her torture has penetrated above into her.

This code implies that one can speak to and question a pandemic as though it is a person, a spiritual entity, or possibly a demon. Since it crosses the Swine Flu code at the word Prince, it begs the question of Satan's involvement in illness.

Cholera (2)

Cholera (2.a)

An aspect of the word that you exist, that God (is).
They are cholera. The heart is the base of power.
Has he listened? Has he gathered?

The word may refer to Scripture, in which case, it is a witness to God's existence. They are cholera. The heart is the base of power may refer to compassionate people reaching out to those who are infected with cholera. Has he listened? Has he gathered? is a bit mysterious, since we cannot be sure who he is. He could be one of the compassionate people trying to help, or it could refer to God.

Location, Location, Location

The two clusters of codes appear in Jeremiah 44:6 and Isaiah 8:7. As we noted earlier in this article, both Scriptures speak of God's wrath: first in laying waste cities, and second in bringing floodwaters. It is a very grim intersection in Scripture for these clusters of codes about illness.

Jeremiah 44:6

Isaiah 8:7

The codes in the Swine Flu clusters appear to echo the content of the surface text, and that poses the question, is the Swine Flu a judgment from God?

Concluding Remarks

The World Plague codes range in length from 12 to 49 letters long. We consider codes that go beyond eight letters improbable. The series of codes in the Swine Flu clusters range in length from 9 to 38, and in addition to their significant length are noteworthy because of their content, the fact that they cluster, and because the codes parallel the content of the verse in which they cluster.
