“The harsh prophecy concerning Damascus; Behold Damascus shall be removed from [being] a city, and it shall be depth of ruins.” (Isaiah 17:1)
With Russia and Iran now undisputedly backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by sending troops and weapons into Syria, a newly-released Bible Codes video reveals that the partnership has Messianic implications for the Jewish people.
International Bible Codes expert Rabbi Mattiyahu Glazerson explains that the recent cooperation among Russia, Iran and Syria to boost the standing of Assad is one step in the final redemptive process.
In the Bible Codes table, which comes from the Book of Deuteronomy, Glazerson points out codes embedded in the Biblical text that describe the current situation, such as Rusiya (Russia) and b’Suria (in Syria), Iran and the Hebrew letters tav, shin, ayin and vav (תשעו), which have the numerical value of 776. This is a reference to 5776, the current Hebrew year.
Glazerson points out that the end of Deuteronomy 6:14 and Deuteronomy 6:15, which appear in the table, tells exactly what plans Iran has in store for Israel:
“ …of the peoples that are around you. For the Lord, your God, is a zealous God among you, lest the wrath of the Lord, your God, be kindled against you, and destroy you off the face of the earth.”
For Israel, Iran is “of the peoples that are around you.” Iranian leaders have repeatedly stated that their goal is to wipe Israel off the map, with the most recent public comments being made by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who vowed that Israel will cease to exist within 25 years.
Concluding his explanation regarding Iran, Glazerson points out the words aish (fire) and Iran, a reference to the weapons of Iran, as well as several places in the Bible Codes table where the words geula (redemption) and moshiach (Messiah) are found.
Turning his attention to the center of the table, Glazerson reveals the word teshuva (repentance). As he has in previous Bible Codes videos, the expert connects the two themes of the Middle East upheaval and redemption. Glazerson says the threats of surrounding countries are a means to propell the Jewish people to repent, lest they be subject to the powers of their enemies.
“If you will follow most of my tables with Mashiach (Messiah),” Rabbi Glazerson told Breaking Israel News, “according to what our Rabbis say in the Talmud (Judaism’s most important compendium of rabbinic wisdom), [if] Jews not do teshuva (repent) willingly, God will appoint on them a cruel leader, like Haman in Persia (modern day Iran) and he will threaten to destroy them.”
Glazerson also explained to Breaking Israel News that the numerical value of the Talmudic phrase “hamelech hakashe k’haman” (A king hard like Haman) is 620 and the numerical value of the Hebrew spellings of Barack Obama Iran is also 620.
Just as God clearly states the punishment to befall the Jewish nation, he also clearly gives the remedy in the Bible Codes. “They will have to do teshuvah to be saved,” Glazerson stated. “Therefore in a table which shows that a great threat is on Israel, which we hope will bring them to do repentance, we have the two sides.”
