Skip to comments.Does Bible code predict President Romney?
Posted on 11/03/2012 2:39:32 PM PDT by tflabo
A well-known Bible-code researcher has bad news for Barack Obama, as he claims hidden texts in the Holy Bible indicate Mitt Romney will be Americas next president.
Moshe Aharon Shak, an orthodox Jew and author of Bible Codes Breakthrough, has produced a series of videos on YouTube with his modern analysis of Scripture.
For those not familiar with Bible codes, they are said to be secret messages embedded in the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament.

I’ve read s book from them and actually go look at their web site from time to time...prayers that this is true and for this election!
Why do people post this type of idiotic stuff?
Bible Code? wrong book.
Is there a code in the Book of Mormon?
Bible code...Bible schmode...pure voodoo.
My Super Sleuth Secret Decoder ring is predicting a landslide win for Gary Johnson.
White Horse Prophecy.....
Supposedly, according to Dr. Gene Scott, there will be a President who will not be baptized as a Christian until sometime during his first term in office.
I don’t understand why some people are so snarky. If you don’t agree with the post, don’t comment, don’t read it at all. Or just say I don’t agree without trying to degrade the person who posted it.
Why does it also work for Moby Dick and War and Peace? You should try studying probability and statistics.
really, we have to agree with the post to comment?
The title is a question. We have to assent in order to post an answer?
The same poster loaded this up yesterday...same article.
I didn’t say that..I just don’t understand why FR has become so nasty...I’ve been on here for many years and this site has lost a lot of people because of the nastiness...that’s why I hardly ever post anymore.
hey all I'm not superstitious but its interesting stuff. Having fun with it. Do what you wish with it...and dont worry--I can handle ANY negative comments without 'revenge' eheheheh..
Misuse of the codes!
The codes purpose is simply to provide a DNA-like lock on the true scriptures. The Lord condemns sooth-sayers.
I was reading some tea leaves and my crystal ball shouted that Romney would last 3 whole terms.
You posted this yesterday, why are you posting it again?
“I just dont understand why FR has become so nasty”
I think it’s a cross of DU folks posting and folks on the extreme right.
Both are very similar in tone just opposite sides of the spectrum. The weird part though is that they both agree to hate everything.
We rationing here?
>> “Why does it also work for Moby Dick and War and Peace?” <<
The examples from those texts were fraudulent. They made changes in the spelling of key words to shift the sequences. This was proven a long time ago. Same held true for the claims for Atlas Shrugged.
That wasn’t an answer, but have at it.
And this code is in the english version or original greek/hebrew texts?
This code stuff is silly. That is the thing about Christianity, there are NO secrets, no secret knowledge because Adam and Eve ate the fruit. There is no mystical secrets in Christianity.
Will you post it tomorrow and the day after? Next week on Saturday, too? PLEEEZE!
GeronL is partly right on this.
Torah is not a fortunetelling volume. The obvious purpose of the codes is to prevent tampering with the pure texts, not to be used to predict the future.
God hates sooth sayers.
This is the third posting of this idiocy!
The codes are solely in the Masorite texts, for the purpose of assuring that the text is unmodified.
It is clearly the work of God, as proven by extensive statistical analysis. The probability of them happening by accident is nil.
and who decided what the code is?
Who decided that every 9th letter on every 4th page or whatever would be it?
How do we know someone didn’t find a bunch of letters and then decide to make a code that fit it?
Humans devised the code, not God.
Thanks editor——nice input. My question is if God is an absolute mathematical genius then why could there not be numerical significance from the original Hebrew words?
PS. I posted this twice because I’m interested to find out more—not get excoriated for it, ehehehe.
For those that are interested, here are several Moby Dick examples of “predicting” assassinations:
My bible code research promised me a free pony when I was 9, I am still waiting.
A more rational look at the code:
You seem to miss the point that the text of Moby was altered to produce your “example.”
Nonsense is not “rational.”
Deal with reality or go to bed, but don’t lie.
I couldn't agree more...which is why I don't give credance to absurdities such as the Bible Code.
>> “Who decided that every 9th letter on every 4th page or whatever would be it?” <<
You obviously have not done due dilligence on this.
The codes were found by exhaustive search of digital copies of the Masorite text. God had to have selected them.
The fortune telling nonsense is from after-the-fact search of events that are known, not done in advance of any event.
Its nonsense and wishful thinking by those that have no idea what God’s word is.
The codes are undeniable (the real ones).
They are in the text, and were found by computer search.
After the book was published, charletans tried to foist false examples fron other texts to ‘disprove’ them but all of the examples of more than four characters were proven to have been achieved by altering the subject texts.
You, being of similar mind, got bit. Go suck your wounds.
Good article. Still if we were to believe in the existence of the ‘Bible Codes’, then we must take another step and assume that placing such codes in the text would have to affect the contents of the text, that is its veracity. That is to say, in order to make the Codes work, God, or whoever wrote the Bible, had to adjust the content, change it to fit the puzzle and thus make it less reliable as it would have been as a straight narration. Have the cake or eat it, dear believers in superstitions of this nature.
The book of Genesis is particularly well-studied in this regard and for a very long time. All the names of the Biblical Patriarchs are encoded in Genesis in the same manner.
So, while I grasp the source of the controversy, I do not grasp the derision. This is not new. In the modern era, some liken the purpose of it to a check sum, an authentication. Some say it's the book sealed unto the end times.
Regardless, it's to me an interesting puzzle. The surface text is vastly more important, but this is far beyond random chance and is there for a purpose.
We do not know just what that purpose is intended to be. Speculation could be a bad thing, but that should not stop further research into the matter, and has not.
Here is a pretty fair summary of the last decade or so, covering both the pros and the cons, for those who might have an interest:
What it isn't is a means of predicting the future. The few examples of codes that appeared to have done so are the very rare exception.
Yeah? Well, my I-Ching reading says “The unyielding tiger bows to the phlegmatic river.”
You posted this same crap yesterday.
Want to bet if there is a fourth?
