“Repent and turn away from your idols, and turn away your faces from all your abominations.” (Ezekiel 14:6)
In a recently released video, “Israel in Trouble”, prolific author and Bible Codes expert Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson reviews a table featuring important words found in today’s newspapers. The high frequency of keywords relating to current events in the Holy Land provide the secret to hastening the arrival of the Messiah, according to Glazerson.
The video starts with a quote from the Talmud, the central text of rabbinic Judaism, compiled nearly 2,000 years ago. The quote appears in the context of a discussion about the arrival of the Messiah. “Rabbi Yochanan said that in the generation that the son of David (the Messiah) will come . . . multitudes of trouble and evil decrees will be promulgated anew, each new evil coming without haste before the other has ended.”
The newly-released video is four and a half minutes long. At the 1:00 mark, Glazerson turns to the remarkable table that comes from the Book of Deuteronomy.
The first thing he points out is the Hebrew phrase Yisrael b’tzara, which translates to “Israel is in trouble”. Then he begins to point out Bible Codes that explicitly spell out the troubles that Israel faces. It’s extraordinary how many of the words he finds in this table come directly from today’s news reports. They include: Islam, UN, Arabs, Iran, atom (bomb), Obama, Kerry, Hamas, terror, Gaza and Amalek (the Biblical name for all those who wish to destroy the Jewish people). All these words are found in the same table.
In pointing out these words, Glazerson comments, “We find all this in the Torah because it (the Five Books of Moses) was the blueprint of Creation.” In other words, these Bible Codes have existed since God gave the Bible to Moses on Mount Sinai. They only make sense to us at this stage in history because these words reflect what’s going on around us today.
At the 2:50 mark, Glazerson points to the words Ben Yishai [son of Jesse] which is a well-known Biblical reference to Messiah, and to the Hebrew word Mashiach, which means “Messiah”. The implication is that all these troubles from which Israel suffers are intimately connected to the arrival of the Messiah.
At 3:30 minutes in, Glazerson points out a full verse from Deuteronomy 25:17-18. “You shall remember what Amalek did to you on the way, when you went out of Egypt, how he happened upon you on the way . . . ” Embedded in this verse are the letters that spell out 5775, which is the current Hebrew year.
Finally, Glazerson suggests that the way to cope with all of these troubles that precede the Messiah is the concept of teshuva (which means “repentance”), another word that is found in this table. The lesson here? The way to get rid of the troubles enumerated in this table and to bring the Messiah is to repent and to cling to God.
