BIBLE CODES RESEARCH
The Bimini Bible Codes Research Center (BBCRC) is dedicated to research and revelation of the cryptic messages embedded within the glorious Word of God. The BBCRC was conceived on the Island of Bimini, by Norbert H. Kox, in 1999, when God revealed to him the hidden meaning of the word Bimini.
When Bimini is written in the Hebrew Language, its translation is, "In My Right Hand."This website will be used to post Bible codes and code-related subjects. The author is involved in many other endeavors and will attempt periodic updates to this site. You can leave comments and suggestions by clicking the BCR-Blog on the site menu, and then Post Comment. Your input is valued and appreciated.
WHAT ARE THE BIBLE CODES? The Bible code is a phenomenon that has been known about for many centuries. Both ancient and modern scholars have worked with it meticulously counting out hundreds of letters by hand, to find the hidden messages that are in quoted within the Hebrew text. It is only in modern times, since the 1980s, that researchers have begun searching the code by means of computer. It is only since the publishing of Michael Drosin's book, The Bible Code (1997) that many of us have heard of its existence. Still today, the majority of people have never heard of it.
WHAT ARE THE BIBLE CODES?
The Bible code is a phenomenon that has been known about for many centuries. Both ancient and modern scholars have worked with it meticulously counting out hundreds of letters by hand, to find the hidden messages that are in quoted within the Hebrew text. It is only in modern times, since the 1980s, that researchers have begun searching the code by means of computer. It is only since the publishing of Michael Drosin's book, The Bible Code (1997) that many of us have heard of its existence. Still today, the majority of people have never heard of it.
Many books have been written about the Bible code, and more are hitting the shelves each day. With all of these books the phenomenon should be well understood. But instead, it is becoming more of a blur. There are many misconceptions concerning the Bible code, and some of the proponents of the code are just as damaging to its validity as the antagonists are.
There are a few good code researchers and a few good books on the subject. There are many erroneous code books on the shelves of bookstores, written by inferior researchers and charlatans looking for self-recognition and riches. A few of them may be honest but gullible and uneducated in the real workings of the Bible Codes. Because of their misuse of the codes they do more harm than the skeptics when it comes to validity of the subject overall. Like the skeptics most of their claims are unfounded and are based on limited knowledge of both the Hebrew Language and the science of the codes.
The Codes contain both positive and negative phrases, true and false messages.
Negative codes will be found in the Bible, because it is the Book of Knowledge of good and evil, as well as the book of life, or the living book. In the Inspired Scriptures, Lucifer said, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God... I will be like the most High.” (Isaiah 14:12-14). The serpent told Eve, “Ye shall not surely die.” (Genesis 3:4). Satan tells one lie after another in the Scriptures. There are multitudes of “negative Scriptures.” We do not disavow the Bible or all its good, because it happens to be a repository of Satan’s words, as well as God’s. Since the Scriptures record the words of Satan, why would we not expect to find negative messages in the Bible Codes as well? Satan’s ramblings within the lines of the Inspired Scriptures do not reduce the effectiveness of the words of God, nor the prophecies of his holy men. Negative Codes do not reduce the legitimacy of the Equidistant Letter Sequences (ELS) found in the Bible. They just reiterate the importance of cautious, careful, study and interpretation of these Codes.
Be cautious. Many antagonists of the Bible code are ignorant of important facts, both in the workings of the ELS code, and also in the Hebrew Language. They do not want to believe the Code and they do not want you to believe it.
There are also many who promote the Codes without sufficient knowledge. Since Bible Code research programs have become more readily available, anyone who can use a computer can run a Code search with little or no knowledge of the Hebrew Language. That does not mean he can properly interpret what he finds. So beware when reading the messages from codes predicting the future. Not all researchers are honest. Some will emphasize words, phrases, or dates that “prove” their point, while ignoring more significant codes present in the same grid, because they do not validate, or may even disprove the point in question.
Proceed with caution when examining the Bible Code. The Codes are genuine. They do exist. Some who promote the Codes are honest. Some who promote them are dishonest. Some who promote them are ignorant of the workings.
Many who work against the Codes are dishonest and ignorant. Some who fight against them are very clever and brilliant. Beware, or they will deceive you. Satan disguises as an Angel of Light, Lucifer, and he is brilliant; so that if it were possible, he should deceive even the very Elect.

THE BIBLE IS THE CODE
The word Bible simply means Book. Our English word Bible comes from the Latin biblia and the Greek and Phoenician byblos, meaning, “book.” The Hebrew word for book or scroll rpx (SPhR, sefar) also means to count or number, and to tell, which is what the Code does. These same three Hebrew letters can be pronounced, “cipher.” In English a cipher is a secret code written in letters or characters that must be deciphered into intelligible terms by use of a key. Ancient rabbis found codes in the Scriptures. Their key was in equidistant letter sequences (ELS). Current researchers use the computer to unlock ELS codes.
YESU CONFIRMED IN THE CODES
The name of Yesu is confirmed countless times in the Bible codes with both spellings (yod-shin-waw, and, yod-shin-waw-ayin) viewed as identical. When I first began working with Bible codes, in 1997, I did everything by hand, counting out the Hebrew letters and recording them on graph paper, then deciphering the grids like word puzzles. Everywhere I looked it said, “My symmetry.” This told me immediately that God placed a great significance on symmetry in the codes. He has always used symmetry in the Scriptures in many overt references, so it should be no surprise that he would use symmetry in the codes.
This writing will not go deeply into the inner workings of the Bible Code. There are a number of good books available for that (and many not so good). Two books you might consider are Jeffrey Satinover’s Cracking the Bible Code, and Moshe Katz’s Computorah.
The code is equidistant, so there may be a three-letter-skip, where every third letter is part of the code. If the skip is 100 letters every hundredth letter is counted. In a 100-skip code each line has 100 letters in it. The matrix is found at the location of the key word. The grid can then be searched for the presence of other words and phrases like a word search puzzle. Some Rabbis, scholars and scientists investigating the codes believe that the Bible (Torah and Tanach) is encoded with every event past, present and future. Thus it would also encode every person’s name along with his or her history (the Book of Life). The assassination of Yitzhak Rabin was discovered in an asymmetrical code, long before it happened, but it could not be prevented.
There are an endless number of significant codes that are asymmetrical, but the symmetrical codes are especially awesome, adding another level of complexity to the already complex system of cryptological ciphers.

God has shown me some astounding things and he has inspired me to present them to the world. This is a time of judgment; the Day of Yahweh is at hand. The kingdom is in you and is determining your destiny at this moment.
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within [Greek, entos, “inside”] you. (Luke 17:21)
Yesu said not one Yod would pass from the Torah till all things be fulfilled (Matthew 5:18). The Yod is the tenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet and the initial of the names Yesu and Yahweh. It has not passed from the Hebrew Torah. But it has been lost in English. Even though it still exists in the Hebrew Scriptures, the Jews do not pronounce the name of Yahweh, and most of them reject Yesu as Messiah. God is displeased with both these practices by the Jews and the English nations, and has determined to correct the matter, for those who will receive his word.
He has promised,
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles [Goyim] seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that Yahweh shall set his hand [yad/yod] again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
The root of Jesse to whom the Goyim seek is Yesu. The English nations are the remnants of Israel, descended through Ephraim and Manasseh. It is the English Bibles that have taken away the Yod, the Y, and replaced it with a J. “Yahweh shall set his Yod again the second time to recover the remnant of his people.” He wants to give the Yod to us the second time, so that through the names of Yahweh Yesu he can recover us.
He is reaching out to recover his remnant from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
The words of the Torah are compared to the waters of the sea. As the waters of the sea contain great depths with many marvelous secrets hidden in the darkness far beneath the surface, so does God’s word hold wonderful secrets for those who are willing and able to retrieve them.
ISLANDS OF THE SEA
The “Islands of the sea,” is a term with deep hidden meaning. First we look at the surface. The islands of the sea are literal places. Every piece of land in the seas constitutes an island of the sea.
With the above words of Isaiah 11:11, God called me to my mission, in 1998. He took me to the Island of Bimini, which means, “In my right hand.”
During my first stay in Bimini, while painting an Apocalyptic Visual Parable of the Island (4’ x 18’), God revealed many things to me in the Bible Code which went into the painting, including destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. He also revealed the depths and many layers of the Hebrew word for island [aleph-yod].
According to Dov Ben-Abba, the letter “I” means Yod (i), or ai [aleph-yod] (Hebrew-English English-Hebrew Dictionary, p. 160, “I”). What an astoundingly prophetic revelation. A second level of the word for island, ai, also designates the Yod; and Yahweh will re-establish his Yod to recover the remnant of his people from the Islands of the Sea.
Besides meaning Yod and island, in a third level the letters aleph-yod, ai, are also an abbreviation for the Land of Israel: [Eretz Yisrael]. So the mission to the Islands is also a mission to the Land of Israel, to return his Yod.
There is yet a fourth significant level of this word connected symbolically to the “United States.”
How is the U.S. Related to Israel? The name of Israel was conferred upon Ephraim and Manasseh, by their paternal grandfather Jacob, in Genesis 48. Cleopatra’s Needles, in London and New York, are the twin obelisks that stood in front of the Sun Temple where the maternal grandfather of Ephraim and Manasseh was the great high priest of the sun-god (Genesis 41:45-52). The Needles identify our hidden heritage. Great Britain and the United States are Israel (Egypto-Israel) the descendants of Ephraim and Manasseh. Thus the title Israel, conferred upon Ephraim and Manasseh, is rightfully applied to Britain and the United States.
This identity is affirmed in Hebrew dictionaries. United States is, [Eretzot HaBrit], “Lands of the Covenant.” Everyone knows that Israel is the Land of the Covenant. Why would the Jews attach that name to the United States? Because they see it as the land of the promise, the new Israel. Therefore the United States is a fourth level of the word Island, ai, “the Land of Israel.” The U.S.A. is Island Israel. It is one of the Islands of the Sea, the Lands of Israel of the Sea, the scattered and dispersed Israel that Yahweh wants to recover.
Great Britain is another set of Islands. British is a Hebrew compound word. Brit means “covenant,” and ish means, “man.” The British Isles are the “Islands of the Covenant-Man.”
America and Britain are Islands of Israel.
If Yahweh is to recover his remnant from the nations, and the Islands, by setting his Yod a second time, his name must be important. We need to know and use his name, not the falsified versions.
RECOVERING AND REUNITING Yahweh seeks to recover his remnant. The final outcome and goal is the reuniting of Judah and Israel. This probably comes as a surprise to most, not realizing that there was a difference between the two. The modern State of Israel is really not Israel at all. It is Judah. In ancient Biblical times the sons of Israel were split into two nations, Judah and Israel. They never reunited. What have been referred to as the lost tribes of Israel, or the Nations/Goyim, are essentially the descendants of Jacob that migrated through Europe to the British Isles and eventually to the United States. Many of the Black African slaves who were brought as captives to Babylon (U.S.A.) are probably also part of Israel.

Biblical Truth tells us what the Book of Genesis says concerning the present day identity, and future destiny, of the Israelite tribes including those whose descendants are unaware of their Hebrew ancestry. Biblical Truth is the truth of the Bible. Genesis predicts that the descendants of Israel would number many millions, that all other people would be blessed through them, and be dependent upon them. They were to rule over other nations, become exceedingly prosperous and possess vast natural resources. Monarchs of several nations, ruling at one and the same time, were to emerge from them. There were twelve different tribes, ten of whom were to lose their identity. Each tribe had its own distinctive qualities. After being exiled, the tribes evolved into the dominant elements of several western nations. National characteristics of the countries in question reflect the original tribal distinctions. The USA with Britain and her daughters descend from Joseph who was to receive the major blessings. Judah represents the Jews. Judah and Joseph each have their own tasks. They are two parts of one whole.
The Israelites were to possess the “gate of his enemies” and “the gate of those that hate them” (Genesis 24:60). This means major strategic points giving an edge over all potential adversaries. The USA and Britain have had this advantage and still do. Descendants of Joseph were to become the most powerful nations in the world, and to bring a blessing to all the peoples of the earth. Genesis identifies the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel with the USA, Britain and related nations. This is Biblical Truth.
(http://christianreality.com/Books/bs-bok133.htm, Biblical Truth, by Yair Davidiy, Orthodox Jew living in Jerusalem. Biblical Truth contains an Approbation and Foreword by Rabbi Avraham Feld of the Maccabee Institute in Israel).
Yahweh will reunite his people, Israel and Judah, like two branches grafted together (Ezekiel 37:16-22). The Jews and Goyim will re-unite. Christians reject everything “Jewish,” while Jews reject everything “Christian.” Both need to know the truth. Then there will be no differences.
YOU MUST FIND YOUR OWN PATH
I can point out some truths that God has shown me, but I cannot show you everything you need to know. If you feel inclined, then you must continue the search on your own.
“Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12). I am not a religious leader looking for a following. I am not starting a new religion nor presenting new beliefs, but uncovering and revealing established truths. I am a steward of Yesu Christ encouraging people to search out their own path of salvation, and not to take someone else’s word, but to study, seek, research and investigate. Take an active role in your spiritual destination. Scripture says, “Seek and you shall find” (Luke 11: 9). It does not mean to simply desire or want. In the Greek manuscripts from which the English New Testament is translated, the word used here means to “research and investigate”. The Bible is our source book.
No one can show you the way, or what to believe and do. I can point out facts I have learned in my prayerful research. What you do with these gems is up to your discretion. If you desire enlightenment you must search and find your own path. Pray that God may allow you to be enlightened.

How could the name of God have undergone such a change, from Yahweh to Jehovah?
At first Hebrew was written with consonants only, leaving the pronunciation of the vowel sounds to the discretion of the reader. As the language developed certain letters were also used to indicate vowels: aleph, waw, he (hay) and ayin (eye-in). Finally, about the 8th century AD, the Masoretes, Hebrew scribes, devised a system of diacritical points, above, below, and within the consonants, to indicate the proper vowel reading.
The Hebrew Language can be read and understood, by the learned, without the use of written vowels, as witnessed in Modern Hebrew newspapers and many Hebrew books which are printed without the diacritical points.
Some of the antagonists of the Bible Code attempt to discredit the code by convincing the uninformed public that it is illegitimate gibberish because the vowels have been removed from the Hebrew Bible text rendering it illegible. Fact: Scripture was originally written without vowels. Fact: Modern Hebrew newspapers are written without vowels. Fact: The Hebrew-speaking people have no problem reading their newspapers and Bibles. Fact: Hebrew written without vowels is just as legible today as it was 3,000+ years ago, when the Torah was first given to Moses directly from heaven.
After the invention of the Masoretic vowel system, there have been deceptive points added by the scribes, which if read with the adjoined consonants would produce illegitimate readings. This was done with God’s holy name to purposely keep its pronunciation a secret, only for the “chosen” ones.
NAME REMOVED FROM USAGE
The Shem ha-Meforash, the “distinctive name,” YHWH (Yahweh) was considered so sacred that the privilege of learning its pronunciation became reserved to a chosen few, “a small number of esoteric ‘elect’ of heaven.” (The Book of Jewish Knowledge, p. 401).
From about 300 BC the name had ceased to be spoken even in Temple worship and as a result the general population had lost its pronunciation. “The sages delivered to their disciples the KEY to the Name once every Sabbatical Year [i.e. every seventh year].”
“After the death of the high priest Simeon the Righteous [270 BC] the priests ceased to pronounce the Name (Yoma, 39b), From that time the pronunciation of the Name was prohibited. ‘Whoever pronounces the Name forfeits his portion in the future world’ (Sauh. xi. 1).” (The Jewish Encyclopedia, vol. 9: pp. l62-l63).
When Yesu Christ confronted these Doctors of the Law, he said to them, “Woe unto you, Lawyers! for ye have taken away the KEY of knowledge [Greek gnosis: knowing]: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.” (Luke 11:52). They had taken away the key to knowing the pronunciation of the name. By their failure to use God’s name, they excluded themselves from his kingdom, and by forbidding others its use they were actually hindering them from entering the kingdom of Yahweh.
(Who Changed God’s Name? pp. 15-16; Masquerade: The Antichrist is Here, pp. 40-41)
Many Christian scholars believe that the name of Christ in Hebrew was Yeshua. But the name which is pronounced Yeshua (yay-shoo-ah, or, y’shua) by Modern Christian scholars is not pronounced that way by the Jews (with few exceptions) in reference to Christ. The final letter, ayin (eye-in) represented by ` is not heard in the pronunciation (Dictionary of the Bible, p. 71, McKenzie). The ayin is usually neglected, although it appears in writing (cf. Beginners’ Hebrew Grammar, Rev. Harold L. Creager, B.D., p. 6). An ayin at the end of a word does not necessarily change its pronunciation, neither would an alef or he. Modern Hebrew dictionaries do not even print the ayin in the name Yesu, but simply print the three-letter spelling, yod, shin, waw.
In his Bible Code book, Scholar and researcher, Jeffrey Satinover, states, “The silent letters in Hebrew are ‘aleph’ and ‘ayin’, which can take on any vowel sound. Many words are spelled with them or without them.” (Cracking The Bible Code, p. 312). The “a” vowel of the final syllable in Yeshua is not derived from the ayin, but from the deceptive Masoretic points which did not appear before the 8th century AD. “One has to be careful not to grant the same canonical authority to the Masoretes as to Moses and the prophets. Nor should one be too critical of the modern Old Testament scholar who thinks he has just cause to alter one or two of the signs the Masoretes had introduced.” (Do lt yourself Hebrew and Greek: Everybody’s Guide to the Language Tools, p. 14:3).
If the ayin had been pronounced it could have represented either of two sounds, g or h, according to various Hebrew Grammars and Septuagint study. But in the name which we are scrutinizing, we can be relatively certain that it was ignored or practically silent, because it was not transliterated in the Septuagint. A g-sound would have called for a Greek rendering of Iesoug, which never appears. An h-sound, preceded by a vowel, would scarcely be heard and need not appear in transliteration. “Ayin is an aspiration midway in strength between alef and he. We transliterate it by a rough breathing [`], and practically neglect it in pronunciation.” (Beginners’ Hebrew Grammar, p. 6). Yesu and Yesuh would be identical in pronunciation. A word can be closed with an unsounded consonant. The “moveable” ayin (even when not pronounced, ayin is categorized as a moveable letter) could be used in closing, the same as a “silent” alef or he.
In the Talmudic spelling of the same name, the ayin has actually disappeared. Rather than YSW` (yod, shin, waw, ayin) the name is simply YSW (usy, yod, shin, waw). This leaves no reason to doubt the “Yesu” pronunciation. The Talmud refers to him as YSW HNOTSRY (Yesu ha Notsriy: Yesu the Nazarene; Notsriy also means Christian).
Like the Jews for Jesus, Grant Jeffrey and Yacov Rambsel, in their Bible Code books, use the name Yeshua synonymously with Jesus. Grant Jeffrey says Yeshua is “Jesus,” and promotes the name Yeshua over the name Yeshu (Yesu) which he insinuates is incorrect. What he does not realize is that the Hebrew/Aramaic three-letter and four-letter spellings of the Saviour’s name are pronounced the same, Yesu or Yeshu, not Yeshua. The Bible Code programs all have the three-letter spelling, not the four, in their data bases. All the Hebrew dictionaries have the three-letter spelling also, and not the four-letter spelling. Mr. Jeffrey suggests the name of Yeshu (Yesu) comes from a derogatory acronym, Yimach Shemo Uzikhro [or, yemach shemo vezichro] “May his name and memory be blotted out” (The Mysterious Bible Codes, pp. 99-100). The initial letters of these three words, the Yod Shin Waw (YSW) do spell the name of Yesu. The curse is actually pronounced with the words Yemach shemo, “his name shall be erased.” According to Ben Yehuda’s English-Hebrew/Hebrew-English Pocket Dictionary (p. xxiii) the abbreviation for the yemach shemo vezichro curse is YMS, Yod Mem Shin, for Yemach shemo. If a person’s name were to be blotted out and remembered no more, it would have to never be written again, otherwise the purpose would be defeated. It would perpetuate that name rather than destroy it. If the YSW acronym were used as an abbreviation for the curse, every time it was written down it would proclaim the name of Yesu. Rather than blot out his name it would actually preserve it. And, if this is the case, his name cannot be obliterated.
