3 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-3 •Does God Have Secrets?-Review –We should be expecting both new and deeper light •Truths of the Third Angel’s Message are constantly unfolding –Everyone has access to this light •The light of truth shines on anyone that is open to receive it –What will the information look like? •Some of the information is interwoven within existing end-time prophecies –Ellen White sites Habakkuk 2:1-4 as just one example –In what way will this information come? •Very much out of the common order of things •In a way contrary to human planning •It will be surprising in it’s simplicity We ARE Expecting New & Deeper Light

4 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-4 •Does God Have Secrets? & The Test of New & Deeper Light-Review –The Bible itself states that additional information exists •(Daniel 12:4) “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end...” –God knows everything from the beginning through eternity •The information only appears to be “New & Deeper Light” from our perspective (it has always been there) •There are no walls keeping any living soul from salvation –How do we test new & deeper light? •The 7 tests of new light •Most importantly: The new or deeper light must agree with the law and the testimony –Thousands will be converted to the truth in the last hours of Earth’s history New & Deeper Light Must Be Put To Validity Tests

5 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-5 Some Bible authors hint that information is encoded within the Holy text –In Jeremiah the peculiar word “Sheshach” is substituted for “Babylon” •(Jeremiah 25:26) “And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.” •(Jeremiah 51:41) “How is Sheshech taken! And how is the praise of the whole earth surprised! How is Babylon become an astonishment among the nations!” –The former is an example of an atbash cipher •The first letter of the alphabet is replaced by the last; the second is replaced by the second-to-last and so on •An echo of this Jewish cryptography practice may be found in the synoptic Gospels, applied as a parable to individuals –Luke 13:30 “And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.” Does The Bible Predict / Imply Encoding

6 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-6 Hebrew: Atbash: Atbash Cipher Key: תשרקצץפףעסנןמםלכךיטחזוהדגבא אבגדהוזחטיךכלםמןנסעףפץצקרשת Hebrew:Atbash: BabylonSheshach בבל ששמ Steps to Create an Atbash Cipher: In this case, begin with the text in the original Hebrew language, then in the Hebrew alphabet, using the Atbash cipher key below on the right, substitute the Hebrew letter directly below with the Atbash letter, placing the letters together, we now have the Atbash cipher text Does The Bible Predict / Imply Encoding (Cont.)

7 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-7 •The dictation of the Torah to Moses by God –On Mount Sinai, Moses was instructed to write all the letters that God spoke and showed to him –When Moses received the Torah, he was shown a sapphire stone on which God wrote the words of the Torah letter by letter without spaces, capitalization or punctuation between them –Exodus 24:10 “and they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity.” Source of The Codes

8 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-8 •The writers of the Bible “wrote as they were dictated by the Holy Spirit”: –“The apostles, as personated by these lying spirits, are made to contradict what they wrote at the dictation of the Holy Spirit when on earth. They deny the divine origin of the Bible, and thus tear away the foundation of the Christian's hope, and put out the light that reveals the way to Heaven.”- The Great Controversy, page 558. –“The inspired writers did not testify to falsehoods, through fear that the pages of Sacred History would be clouded by the record of human frailties and faults. The scribes of God wrote as they were dictated by the Holy Spirit, having no control of the work themselves. They penned the literal truth, and stern, forbidding facts are revealed, for reasons that our finite minds cannot fully comprehend.”- Testimonies For the Church; Volume Four, page 9. Inspiration of Scripture & The Spirit of Prophecy

9 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-9 •Some have alleged that Ellen White contradicted herself regarding the Bible’s level of inspiration. (Additional comments in the slide notes area...) •What should we do if there is a conflict between what the Biblical text says and what Ellen White wrote? •Ellen herself explains: “The Spirit was not given—nor can it ever be bestowed—to supersede the Bible; for the Scriptures explicitly state that the word of God is the standard by which all teaching and experience must be tested. Says the apostle John, ‘Believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.’ 1 John 4:1. And Isaiah declares, ‘To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.’ Isaiah 8:20”- The Great Controversy (1888), page e. Inspiration of Scripture & The Spirit of Prophecy (Cont.)

10 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-10 •The Holy Bible is the statndard: “The Holy Scriptures stand alone, the unique standard by which her and all other writings must be judged and to which they must be subject.”- Seventh-day Adventists Believe..., page 227. •The Bible explains its own inspiration: II Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” Inspiration of Scripture & The Spirit of Prophecy (Cont.)

11 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-11 •Paul states that “all scripture”, in the larger framework of his epistles, included both the Old and New Testaments (I Thessalonians 2:13, 1 Corinthians 2:13; 7:25 & 40; 11:2 & 23), was “God-breathed”- Ellen White Under Fire, (Jud Lake-2010) page 93. •“This phrase [God-breathed] indicates that not part but all of the Scriptures were inspired. Hence, no part of the writings of Scripture is without inspiration.” [emphasis NOT added!]- Ellen White Under Fire, (Jud Lake-2010) page 93. Inspiration of Scripture & The Spirit of Prophecy (Cont.)

12 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-12 “Peter emphasized that human beings were the writers of Scripture: ‘For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit’ (2Pet. 1:21, NKJV). Yet, these humans were ‘moved by the Holy Spirit.’ The word Peter uses here for ‘moved’ is pheromenoi, which suggests the idea of being carried along by the Holy Spirit. Hence, he underscores the fact that human beings wrote Scripture under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. None of it was the product of the ‘will of man.’”- Ellen White Under Fire, (Jud Lake-2010) page 93 & 94 Inspiration of Scripture & The Spirit of Prophecy (Cont.)

13 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-13 Quote Regarding The Inspiration Process “Is it necessary to know why or how the sun shines its light or produces its heat to know beyond question that it is there?” -Bell Research Laboratory

16 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-16 •Equidistant letter sequencing (ELS) is well known in the world of cryptography. •A letter is found, then after counting a specific number of letters another is read, and then after counting an equal number of letters another is read, and then another in the same manner,… –Grant Jeffrey states in The Mysterious Bible Codes that as the researchers continued to study the phenomenon they discovered that “...these coded words were interlaced in intricate patterns in the text at evenly spaced intervals, reading both forward and backward. The scientists realized that these ELS encoded letters formed words and associations of such complexity and intricate design that it was impossible that the letter patterns could have occurred by random chance.” •Even Sir Isaac Newton was a Bible code researcher. How The Codes Work

17 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-17 The following is an example of ELS encoding: “The Bible codes are very good to show that the word of God, the Bible, is not the doctrine of man, but is trustworthy and that this document contains solid proof of its authenticity. Ideologies change but our eternal text, the Bible, sustains our trust in Him.” How The Codes Work (Cont.)

18 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-18 Removing the spaces, capitalization and punctuation we obtain: “thebiblecodesareverygoodtoshowthatthe wordofgodthebibleisnotthedoctrineofman butistrustworthyandthatthisdocument containssolidproofofitsauthenticityideologies changebutoureternaltextthebiblesustainsour trustinhim” How The Codes Work (Cont.)

19 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-19 Beginning with the first 'g' in the first line (in the word good) then counting every 21 st letter (circled below) we obtain: “thebiblecodesareverygoodtoshowthatthe wordofgodthebibleisnotthedoctrineofman butistrustworthyandthatthisdocument containssolidproofofitsauthenticityideologies changebutoureternaltextthebiblesustainsour trustinhim” How The Codes Work (Cont.)

The font “Courier New” is used. This dictates that each letter uses exactly the same amount of space. Now we can “run with the message” or easily read it. We will find out later that the prophet Habakkuk gave instructions on how this is done in the Bible. skip 21 = “God’s Codes” How The Codes Work (Cont.)

21 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-21 •To validate a Bible code matrix, the search terms, and encoded messages must pass our three level consistency check: –Each decoding stages' inputs and findings are checked for associations and/or relationship inconsistencies with the following sources: •1) The Holy Bible, •2) The Spirit of Prophecy (Ellen G. White's prophetic writings), •3) Previously validated Bible code matrices –If all three criteria are met, without violation, the code matrix is considered valid. Bell Research Laboratory Code Validation Criteria Holy Bible Valid Codes Spirit of Prophecy Code is Valid Code Validation Criteria

22 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-22 Is the text of the Bible encoded by methods other than ELS? Yes, many different encoding mechanisms have been used; a few of them are: • Atbash -A substitution cipher in which the first Hebrew character is substituted for the last, and so on. • ELS - Read a starting letter, then counting an equal number of letters another is read, and then another in the same manner. • Albam -Alphabet is split into two halves and equates the two halves. • Gemetria -Equivalent Hebrew characters’ numerical values are added together. • Mosaic -ELS encoding that form pictures in the Bible code matrix layout. • Alternative Spacing -Spaces within the plain text of the Bible are moved to alternate locations • Text Reversal -Plain text of the Bible is read backwards. (See slide notes...) • Music -Each Hebrew letter is also a musical note • Surface Text Relevance -Text of the Bible, where encoded letters touch, is topically relevant/related to the encoded messages that lie beneath. Methods of Encoding

23 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-23 •The most common objection to the codes is: –“Are codes found in other books? Maybe the effect exists in all literature?” •The figure below shows the longest code found in the book “War and Peace”(biblecodedigest.com) •On the bottom of the graphic, some of the encoded messages depicted in this book are shown •The messages encoded within the holy Bible are at least three times longer than the longest Hanukah code, which is only seven letters long •The longer the word, phrase, sentence, or paragraph is the less likely it is to occur by random chance. Answering the Skeptics éãìëîùììîòäùéëìäàúéåàçåîùì äåäéàìô Longest code found in the book War and Peace Length of word / phrase / sentence / paragraph Longest code displayed in this book

24 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-24 •The writings & manuscripts that eventually became the Bible were passed through time and cared for. •Specific scholars and scribes were chosen to maintain a single text of the Torah; these men were called Masoretes. It is interesting that they paid the greatest attention to the minutiae of detail and such marks attached to each consonant throughout the entire text. They even numbered every letter, word, sentence, paragraph, chapter, section, and scroll to insure that the total equaled that of the text being copied before allowing it to enter the holy synagogue. -- •Ellen White wrote, that God chose to “ communicate His truth to the world by human agencies ”; but as we noted previously, the entire work of the Bible was and is under the control of the Holy Spirit and that the scribes had “ no control over the work themselves.” •“God has been pleased to communicate His truth to the world by human agencies, and He Himself, by His Holy Spirit, qualified men and enabled them to do this work. He guided the mind in the selection of what to speak and what to write. The treasure was entrusted to earthen vessels, yet it is, nonetheless, from Heaven. The testimony is conveyed through the imperfect expression of human language, yet it is the testimony of God; and the obedient, believing child of God beholds in it the glory of a divine power, full of grace and truth.”- The Great Controversy, page vi & vii. Answering the Skeptics (Cont.)

25 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-25 •Yes; this requires faith. The same faith required to know that the scriptures are inspired by God so that we may base our religion on them and have a path that leads to God. •Faith, I believe, is part of the great test to see if we are worthy of heaven. This includes faith in the Bible: •Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” •“The law of God in the sanctuary in heaven is the great original, of which the precepts inscribed upon the tables of stone and recorded by Moses in the Pentateuch were an unerring transcript. Those who arrived at an understanding of this important point were thus led to see the sacred, unchanging character of the divine law. They saw, as never before, the force of the Saviour’s words: ‘Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law.’ Matthew 5:18. The law of God, being a revelation of His will, a transcript of His character, must forever endure, ‘as a faithful witness in heaven.’ Not one command has been annulled; not a jot or tittle has been changed. Says the psalmist: ‘Forever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in heaven.’ All His commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever.’” Psalms 119:89; 111:7 & 8. [emphasis added]- The Great Controversy, page 434. Answering the Skeptics (Cont.)

26 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-26 • Critics claim Bible codes are false and cannot exist: •The Dead Sea Scrolls are not the same as the traditional (Masoretic) text •The Masoretic text was written after the dead sea scrolls •The dead sea scrolls are fragmented and not complete •The dead sea scrolls use full spellings •Scrolls are more complete (Apocrypha as well as other works) than the Holy Canon • We claim Bible codes are new & deeper light / truth: •Canon of holy books was selected at a conference in Yavine •Holy Canon uses short spellings consistent with the Masoretic text •Markings were also added to the text to emphasize pronunciation of the SHORT spellings contained in the Masoretic text, •Holy Canon is directed by God & is intact (not even the, smallest part of letter construction should be added or removed), •ELS encoded messages exist within the text of the Bible. • SEE APPENDIX 1 FOR FORMAL MATHMATICAL PROOF OF ELS ENCODING OF THE BIBLE • SEE APPENDIX 1 FOR FORMAL MATHMATICAL PROOF OF ELS ENCODING OF THE BIBLE.

34 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-34 “I was instructed that destruction hath gone forth upon cities. The word of the Lord will be fulfilled. Isaiah 29:19-24 was repeated. I dared not move, not knowing where I was. I cried unto the Lord, What does it mean? These representations of destruction were repeated. Where am I? In scenes I have represented that which will be; but warn My people to cease from putting their trust in men who are not obedient to my warnings and who despise My reproof, for the day of the Lord is right upon the world when evidence shall be made sure. Those who have followed the voices that would turn things upside down will themselves be turned where they cannot see, but will be as blind men.” Encoded Information Exists Within The Holy Bible (1 st Example: Isaiah 30:8-15) One night Ellen White had the following vision. She describes the mechanism for decoding, identifies Isaiah 30 as the area in the Bible as where this special hidden information is, and emphasizes the divinity and importance of the information and / or instructions that she relayed from God.

35 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-35 “These words were given me from Isaiah 30: ‘Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits.’ [Isaiah 30:8-15 quoted.]...

41 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-41 “As early as 1842 the direction given in this prophecy to ‘write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it,’ had suggested to Charles Fitch the preparation of a prophetic chart to illustrate the visions of Daniel and the Revelation. The publication of this chart was regarded as a fulfillment of the command given by Habakkuk. No one, however, then noticed than an apparent delay in the accomplishment of the vision--a tarrying time--is presented in the same prophecy. After the disappointment, this scripture appeared very significant: ‘The vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.... The just shall live by his faith.’ [emphasis added]”- The Great Controversy, page 392. Encoded Information Exists Within The Holy Bible (2 nd Example: Habakkuk 2:1-4) Cont.

42 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-42 Encoded Information Exists Within The Holy Bible (3 rd Example: The Hidden Book) Background: “At another time at a meeting held at brother Curtis’ in Topsham, Maine, she was taken off in vision, and arose to her feet, took the large family Bible from the table, and held it on her hand some time at an angle of forty-five degrees, and said the HIDDEN BOOK was not there.” [emphasis added] “All, all who keep the commandments of God, will enter in through the gates into the city and have right to the tree of life and ever be in the presence of that lovely Jesus whose countenance shines brighter than the sun at noon day. I then saw the word of God pure and unadulterated, and that we must answer for the way we received the truth proclaimed from that word. I saw that it had been a hammer to break the flinty heart in pieces, and a fire to consume the dross and tin, that the heart might be pure and holy. I saw that the Apocrypha [from Greek apokryptein to hide away] was the HIDDEN BOOK, and that the wise of these last days should understand it. I saw that the Bible was the standard book, that will judge us at the last day. I saw that heaven would be cheap enough, and that nothing was too dear to sacrifice for Jesus, and that we must give all to enter the kingdom.”- Manuscript 4, 1850, (A copy of E. G. White's Vision which she had at Oswego, N.Y.)

43 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-43 We now know that the appointed time is right upon us and that the “interwoven” “hidden book” information with the biblical prophecies spoken of IS the Bible code. The hidden book IS there when the Bible is looked at from one perspective and IS NOT there when the text of the Bible is looked at from another (the traditional) perspective as evidenced when she held the Bible at a 45° angle. Looking at the Bible from an Equidistant Letter Sequence (ELS) perspective, IS the correct perspective / angle to which Ellen is referring that allows the “wise of these last days” to read and understand the hidden book.

44 •The existence of the codes is very good news indeed –They show that God is in control of everything –There is a plan in place since the beginning of time –Our future is bright •He cared so much for us that he went to the trouble of encoding His holy text for us •The hidden text could only be deciphered at this point in history –The message must be spread to the saints to identify Satan when he masquerades as Christ •God’s message must be shown to other believers •Many people will fear the message •Truth is truth but it must pass the tests Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-44 What The Bible Codes Mean For Us

45 Class_3-Bible_Code_Basics.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page 3-45 Conclusion “The days are fast approaching when there will be great perplexity and confusion. Satan, clothed in angel robes, will deceive, if possible, the very elect. There will be gods many and lords many. Every wind of doctrine will be blowing. Those who have rendered supreme homage to ‘science falsely so called’ will not be the leaders then. Those who have trusted to intellect, genius, or talent will not then stand at the head of rank and file. They did not keep pace with the light. Those who have proved themselves unfaithful will not then be entrusted with the flock. In the last solemn work few great men will be engaged. They are self-sufficient, independent of God, and He cannot use them. The Lord has faithful servants, who in the shaking, testing time will be disclosed to view.”- Testimonies for the Church; Volume Five, pages 81 & 82.
