BREAKING THE BIBLE CODES (part 2 - The "WDC" code)
NOTE: A while back I posted a Blog about Bible Codes and I suggest you go back and read that post before proceeding (LINK: http://wwjbwhatwouldjesusblog.blogspot.com/2008/07/breaking-bible-codes-part-1.html
). It gives a basic overview on the idea that indeed Bible is often more of a code book than a literalist guide to God and readers will understand this post better if the first read that previous post.
In the day in which we live are many things that are convoluted and difficult to grasp.
For quite some time after 911 the most Goggled word was “Nostrodomus” who wrote many Quatrains (4 line verses) concerning visions he had regarding the future.
I am not here to decide if the prophecies of Nostrodomus are true of false but if one reads them it is very easy to see that they do tend to be amazingly accurate on a generalized bases (likely because if in fact time is cyclical then to look backward at what has been will provide clues as to what will be).
No prophet can be 100% accurate because I believe that prophecy itself is not intended to be cold and hard but rather is more of a warning … thus an opportunity to change what is most likely to come about.
As for Bible Codes (or what could be called “hidden prophecies“) I indeed believe they exist and not just in word finds and mathematical calculations but also as “redefinition to the age intended to be spoken to”.
By this I mean that each age has a unique form of understanding words. An example might be the word “gay” which used to mean simply “happy” but now has an entirely different connotation in this age that I need not even mention.
The same holds true for many key Bible words which at one time had one meaning but as the age shifted.. So too did the meaning of the word to some degree YET actually an honest study will show that the word never actually changed meaning except in the minds of those who interpret it.
By substituting a word for it’s meaning we can locate another way to understand this “Word Definition Code (WDC)” and today I am going to show you three common words used in defining Biblical prophecy that I feel should be re-examined using the WDC method.
Let’s begin with “ISRAEL”.
Right now most Christians and even Non-Christian people assume that Israel is only a country or nation. ZionIST (as opposed to ZionITE) use of this word predominates our culture HOWEVER does the word ISRAEL refer to a blood line of Hebrews OR could it actually mean something different than what is commonly assumed.
I propose that THE REAL “(Y)ISRAEL” is not at all a specific heritage based on race but is a more broad word covering all who align themselves to the God YHWH (EL) because literally the WORD itself means “The PEOPLE of EL (EL = GOD/YHWH)” and also translated as “The SLAVES of EL” or even “The People who are straight (right) with EL”
The first historical mention of the word "Israel" is in the Merneptah Stele of ancient Egypt (dated the late 13th century BCE), which appears to refer to a people.
When Jesus of Nazareth arrived He came not just for one race or bloodline and opened up the use to ANY PERSON or ANY RACE who wished to joins and defend the Creator/Father/God “EL/YHWH”.. Yet, even today “ZionIST Christians” seem to believe that the ISRAELI NATION is “The Chosen People” without even considering that the “Chosen People” are not a culture of blood.. But a culture of SPIRIT.
Thus, I AM AN ISRAELI and if you follow the God Jesus spoke of SO ARE YOU! Yet, look around and see how the NATION CALLING ITSELF “ISRAEL” has created a racist view and Christians (such as John Hagee , Pat Robertson and Hal Lindsey) are (in my opinion) promoting an extremely dangerous and racist view).
Is it Racist to be a ZIONIST?.. Well, according to the United Nations in 1975 it IS.
Here (in it’s Entirety is the actual UN Resolution)
UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION 3379 (XXX)
Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY,
RECALLING its resolution 1904 (XVIII) of 20 November 1963, proclaiming the United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and in particular its affirmation that "any doctrine of racial differentiation or superiority is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous" and its expression of alarm at "the manifestations of racial discrimination still in evidence in some areas in the world, some of which are imposed by certain Governments by means of legislative, administrative or other measures",
RECALLING ALSO that, in its resolution 3151 G (XXVIII) of 14 December 1953, the General Assembly condemned, inter alia, the unholy alliance between South African racism and Zionism,
TAKING NOTE of the Declaration of Mexico on the Equality of Women and Their Contribution to Development and Peace 1975, proclaimed by the World Conference of the International Women's Year, held at Mexico City from 19 June to 2 July 1975, which promulgated the principle that "international co-operation and peace require the achievement of national liberation and independence, the elimination of colonialism and neo-colonialism, foreign occupation, Zionism, apartheid and racial discrimination in all its forms, as well as the recognition of the dignity of peoples and their right to self-determination",
TAKING NOTE ALSO of resolution 77 (XII) adopted by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the Organization of African Unity at its twelfth ordinary session, held at Kampala from 28 July to 1 August 1975, which considered "that the racist regime in occupied Palestine and the racist regime in Zimbabwe and South Africa have a common imperialist origin, forming a whole and having the same racist structure and being organically linked in their policy aimed at repression of the dignity and integrity of the human being",
TAKING NOTE ALSO of the Political Declaration and Strategy to Strengthen International Peace and Security and to Intensify Solidarity and Mutual Assistance among Non-Aligned Countries, adopted at the Conference of Ministers for Foreign Affairs of Non-Aligned Countries held at Lima from 25 to 30 August 1975, which most severely condemned Zionism as a threat to world peace and security and called upon all countries to oppose this racist and imperialist ideology,
DETERMINES that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.
2400th plenary meeting
10 November 1975
The above was gleaned from a HEBREW WEB SITE ( Link: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Foreign%20Relations/Israel%20and%20the%20UN/Selected%20resolutions/UNITED%20NATIONS%20GENERAL%20ASSEMBLY%20RESOLUTION%203379%20-X ) meaning that it has been acknowledged and recorded as true by Jewish sources.
Now unless God is a racist (which I do not believe) then I think it is safe to assume that the MEANING is what God desires we use in defining prophecy rather than a “racist/literalist” view.
Next we hear in Prophecy talk regarding “Jerusalem” again assuming all references to this city are specifically about one town in the Nation of Israel and of course some of the Biblical writers did mean it as this specific area. However again when Jesus came it was a point that transitioned the word away from a literal town and game it a more universally available meaning.
Using the same “WDC” method let’s see what “Jerusalem” might mean in the AD world for if ISRAEL has been redefined so too may be “Jerusalem”.
JERUSALEM MEANS: 'City of Peace' in Hebrew.
Christians speak of a NEW JERUSALEM in the End of Days and according to the Revelation of John CANNOT BE CURRENT JERUSALEM since it later descends from the heavens (logic alone should tell you that current Jerusalem cannot come down since it is a piece of land struck firmly to the earths surface).
Therefore, TRUE JERUSALEM, using the WDC code does not have to be (nor could it be a land in the Middle East if one is a follower of Christianity.. Yet most Christians are being told that this is in fact the Jerusalem of the Last days and none dare question it.
Next we come to the word “ZION”.
Again, most people seem to think ZION is just another name for the city of JERUSALEM in the Nation of ISRAEL since it oft appears interchangeably YET if one uses the WDC code (meanings rather than places) I agree it is the same place in differing periods.
Zion was originally not Israeli, the name Zion comes to us probably from a language other than Hebrew. TWOTOT mentions an Arabic root s-w-n (under 1910), to protect, defend, which may give Zion the meaning of fortress. Others (says TWOTOT ) suggest derivation from a root saha, be bald.
So ZION would mean “A Fortress” or “Place of Protection/Safety”… but safety from WHAT?
Well, let’s just say that one only needs a place of safety when there is something threatening and almost everyone can agree we live in a time when things are becoming increasingly unsafe.
I have (and will again) bespeak my beliefs regarding what I feel comes that such a “place of safety/Zion” will be required but now I just want you to go back using this WDC Code and reread “Isaiah”. Try to place aside the meanings being taught by the popular Hebrew and Christian teachers and insert the following WDC meanings:
1) ISRAEL = All who believe in God… (You included)
2) JERUSALEM = A city of hope. (indwelled by God)
3) ZION = A place of promised protection during a future coming threat.
If you can honestly place aside the preconceived ideas taught by “Christian ZionISTS” maybe you will join me in becoming a TRUE ZionITE (future resident of “God’s promised place of protection that once the threat is over becomes the city of hope”).
I will be sharing more over time about Zion for I believe a major part of my mission is to correct an error that has made God seem a racist for all too long.
My God could never favor one race above another and anyone who believes that God favors the Hebrews should give up Christianity altogether and become Jewish ASAP.
Jesus came to change this false teaching, even calling the priests of his day “hypocrites and vipers”. Jesus taught equality of all who love the God of Love (EL/YHWH) and never do I see him uphold a dogma that a single race could believe itself as better than another.
Those who have made “Christian ZionISM” a part of their belief system should question why they believe this way… as for me, I say it is the “Great Deception”.
Sadly those who feel Zion is only in the Nation of Israel shall surely miss the call when as the Popular Christian Hymn clearly states we are to “MARCH THERE” and so by believing a “false doctrine” (no matter how popular) many who use the “Left Behind” series to define prophecy shall themselves be “left behind” and needlessly suffer a “great tribulation” that is all too soon to come.
Still, please do not take my word for it… Go question and study on your own but let me say that when “not one stone is standing upon another” in the City of Jerusalem in the Nation of Israel I pray you recall my message for I want that as many as can be there to enter Zion and be PROTECTED rather than suffer and have to wait for NEW Jerusalem’s return.
