“O God, do not hold yourself silent, do not be deaf and do not be still, O God. For behold, Your enemies stir, and those who hate You raise their heads.” (Psalms 83:2-3)
Less than 24 hours after the horrifying series of terrorist attacks in France, Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson, renowned Bible Codes expert, found a series of Bible Codes that correspond to the massacre in Paris. The video of his findings was published online Saturday night, after the conclusion of the Sabbath in Israel.
Multiple codes related to the brutal attacks are found in a single table, which comes from the Book of Genesis, chapters 37-41. Glazerson quotes his Bible Codes colleague, Dr. Yoav Rosenberg, who explained that when a series of related codes are clustered so closely together that they come from the same book of the Bible, as in this table, it’s particularly significant.
The first thing Glazerson points out is the word Paris spelled in Hebrew letters, with the code for Islamic terror appearing as well. Nearby is the word Yishmaelim, which means Ishmaelites and refers to the descendants of Biblical Ishmael. Yishmaelim is a shorthand reference to Muslim Arabs.
In a cluster of codes located near the center of the table are the Hebrew word for massacre and the word Daesh, an acronym standing for al-dowla al-islaamiyya fii-il-i’raaq wa-ash-shaam, meaning Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Hebrew and most Arab speakers refer to ISIS using the acronym Daesh. The word Daesh appears next to the verb for strike, forming the sentence “Daesh was striking.”
In another part of the table are the words b’eretz Tzarfat (in the land of France). In addition to codes that point out the event (massacre), the players (Daesh) and the location (Paris, France), Glazerson also found codes that indicate the date. There is a code made up of the Hebrew letters that refer to the current year in the Hebrew calendar. Also noteworthy is a code for Kislev, which is the current month in the Hebrew calendar.
How are Bible Codes, which reflect something that have already happened, meant to be understood? Speaking to Breaking Israel News, Rabbi Glazerson explained, “Looking into the future is not the purpose of the Torah (Bible) Code. The idea of Torah Code is that the Torah was the blueprint of creation, so that the codes show us what was potentially in the program of the world, which is the Torah.”
Bible Codes provide evidence that the Five Books of Moses are of Divine origin.The traditional Jewish belief is that God wrote the books of Genesis through Deuteronomy with His Divine wisdom. Thus, hidden within the letters of these books are codes that reflect significant events in history.
In a related teaching from this idea, the Rabbinic book Ethics of the Fathers explains, “Turn the Torah over and over, for everything is in it.”
