Haggai 2:18-19 - Encoded Words
Click the Yeshua Banner and find out more on Banner's
Let us start this second part of this study with a knowledgeable, and in-depth, description of the "Bible Codes Theory." The theory of Bible Codes, as summarized by Dr. Jeffrey Satinover in his book, "Cracking the Bible Code" - states the following:
a) The Torah (Five Books of Moses) can both be treated as a sacred text in the usual way, and as encrypted text containing some kind of coded message.
b) The coded message was constructed by utilizing successive letters in the encrypted text selected at equidistant skip intervals.
c) The content of the coded message serves to confirm the unity and integrity of the encrypted text.
d) The content appears in the form of a statistical tendency for selected words to appear in identified locations is for a code to appear many times in a passage of related text.
e) One such tendency is for a code to appear many times in a passage of related text.
f) Another tendency, considered more important, is that two or more different but related words can be found at an equidistant skip intervals in unusually close proximity, as for example a word in an horizontal row which is crossed by a word in a vertical column as in a crossword. In other words, there is a tendency for meaningfully related words to show the "crossword effect" - appearing in the array more closely together than unrelated words. If a specified code is found at several different equidistant skip intervals, the smaller intervals should be considered more meaningful than the larger ones for two reasons: one is that if the skip intervals get large, "close clusters" lose their meaning or they become more difficult to assess; the second reason is that in a large enough range of text it is possible to find a specified word many times at different intervals. A short interval would make the found occurrence be considered as worthy of note.
There is Biblical evidence for the existence of the Bibles Codes. The Bible has many verses which are interpreted as giving evidence to the existence of the hidden codes in Scripture. Below I have listed 5, but there are more...
1. G-d did dictated the Torah to Moses, Scriptures tells us so.
"And Moses wrote all the words of the L-RD". (Exodus 24:4).
2. G-d did encrypted, and we are encouraged to find the hidden, the encoded.
"It is the glory of G-d to conceal a thing, but the honor of kings is to search out a matter". (Proverbs 25:2).
3. Messages have been indeed hidden in the Book.
"But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book". (Daniel 12:4).
4. Man is encouraged to seek to unlock the hidden codes and find understanding.
"Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding." (Proverbs 3:13).
5. Everthing that is encoded, like certain events, will be fulfilled in its time frame.
"Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."
I want to address what has been called "NEGATIVE CODES" before I go on!
I belong to two Torah Codes Lists, on one of these lists, this letter was posted. I like to share it with my readers, it may help you understand by way of painting a picture for you to see. I agree with Steve Scott letter, however I have taken the names out he used, and replaced those names with the word "Blank" not to offend.
[ Hello All:
For those who have put much stock in Dr. Blank's so-called negative Bible Codes, perhaps a personal experience may help.
I drive an 1994 Ford Taurus SHO which I purchased as a Demo with 300 miles on it. I recently had a problem with the car not starting, dying while it was driving, etc. The whole problem was eventually solved when the local Ford Dealer found: NEGATIVE CODES. In other words: CODES THAT WERE THERE BUT WERE DUE TO A MISPERFORMANCE OF ENGINE SENSORS!!
For those of us who believe that NOTHING from the LORD happens by happenstance - yes indeed, NEGATIVE MATHEMATICAL CODES CAN BE FOUND!! BUT ONLY BY MIS-PERFORMANCE!! It would greatly behoove Dr. Blank, and others to QUIT LOOKING TO WORLDLY METHODS!! It is amazing to me, that these CHRISTIAN PEOPLE have eventually joined ranks with such UNBELIEVERS AS Blank Blank, etc..
As for me: I'll stick with a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LIVING GOD!!

I believe the Codes reveal the much more of the WORD of G-d!
Can Judaism tells us anything about how Torah was given to Moses?
Yes it can! Judaism tells us that G-d dictated the Torah to Moses and that G-d did it letter by letter, and that everything has been encoded in the Torah. We know today that the whole of Hebrew Scriptures reveal this same kind of encryption. This encryption is supernatural and mystical because G-d is supernatural and mystical, a G-d I truly stand in AWE of. Let's look at what a supernatural and mystical G-d encoded in Haggai 2:18-19. We will be dealing with all small numbers that are closely clustered together, in horizontal rows which cross words in a vertical column, as well as diagonal finds, like you find in a crossword puzzle.
What is so amazing about Haggai 2:18, is the encoded words we found in this single verse. To start with,
in the 8th word, the 2nd position, at a right to left (+) Skip (ELS - Equi-distant Letter Sequencing) of every
4th letter, is the Name of that "Foundation" of the L-RD'S Temple. It is "YESHUA"
(Yod Shin Vav Ayin)!
This one was first given to me by my brother in the L-RD, Messianic Rabbi, Yacov Rambsel. I was sharing with him what I believed our L-RD showed to me in my studying His Word in Haggai. Yacov slipped this in, and it started me looking in a whole new direction to verify Yeshua's birth in the womb as being on the 24th of the 9th month, from the text of Haggai.
I found in the verse (2:18) of just 19 words and 76 Hebrew letters, the word "G-d - El" (Aleph Lamed). What is so wonderful is that it is encoded 18 times in the this little verse numbered 18. Also take note again, the number 18 means LIFE to the Jewish mind, a "CHAI." The Dalet, the fourth letter, the number of our skip, stands for the "Door" - which is Yeshua Messiah, the only DOOR TO LIFE. Yeshua's Name is found in the 8th word, 8 is the number for Messiah in the New Covenant. His Name in Greek, Jesus = 888. Also in that 8th word it is the 2nd position (Bet) you find the Yod, which is the first letter of Yeshua's Name. The Yod alone stands for the Holy Name of L-RD to many Jewish people. The Bet is the Hebrew letter as we said before which stands for the "Temple of G-d, the House of the L-RD." According to Rabbi Michael L. Munk, in his book wonderful book, "The Wisdom in the Hebrew AlephBet" by ArtScroll Mesorah Series - speaking of the Yod, "It alludes to HASHEM Who is One and Indivisible, for although His attributes seem to be numerous and even contradictory, they all flow from a unified purpose and existence (Maharal)."
Now if you put a Bet Yod together, you spell the word "house of" a noun, and as a preposition it spell "in me" - "House of HASHEM in Me." Bet Yod here stands for and means, Yeshua's position and status. The Bet, (House of G-d), and Yod (a Hand) stands for HaShem, the Name of L-RD. I found that a very revealing picture of the Messiah according to Scriptures.
"And yet if I judge, My judgment is True: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent Me. It is also written in your Torah, that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bear witness of Myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of Me."
Now there is much more, and I really do mean "much more" encoded in these two little verses in Haggai. Lets look at the other relevant words encoded that we found!
Haggai 2:18-19, has just 134 Hebrew letters in 34 words. In these can be found the following words listed below. I did not put these words in any order other then how I did my search. Also in the list below I used the number sign (#) to associated these encoded words with what I have coined, Sign-ificant Gematria that are found in Torah, the first five books written by Moses. A minus sign (-) means: left to right in the text, and a plus sign (+) means: right to left find in the Hebrew text. I have including a quick lesson in simple Gematria, click the word Gematria and see the method I use.
Here is the same list once again, however with the Hebrew spelling of each word we found encoded in Haggai 2:18-19.
In order to show you most of the encoded words we found in Haggai 2:18-19, a brother in the L-rd, Bryan Huie helped me with these large matrixes. He used 33 out of the 35 single words encoded, and had to use a larger matrix so you could see all the words better. There is still however, is only 134 words in Matrix 1 and 2 below. The words "Kohen" and "Moses" are not shown below. Todah rabbah Bryan, may the L-RD bless you for your help.
Matrix 1 of single words encoded in Haggai 2:18-19
1. Yeshua - yod shin vav ayin (yellow letters on purple)

There are so many words that overlap each other because of shared letters, that we had to use a second matrix to show them to you.
Matrix 2 of single words encoded in Haggai 2:18-19
9. Yoshi - yod vav shin yod (yellow letters in purple circle)
10. Shoah - shin vav aleph hey (dark green letters in light green)
14. Ninth - tav (yellow letter in blue) shin (shared with "yoshi") yod ayin (yellow in blue)
15. Sarah - shin resh (shared with "Barb" and "Rome") hey (white letters on maroon)
19. Barb - bet resh (shared with "Sarah" and "Rome") bet (maroon letters on yellow)
20. Vow - nun dalet nun (could not find)
21. Abi - aleph bet yod (maroon on gray diamonds)
22. Abed - ayin bet dalet (blue on light blue diamonds)
23. Ahava - aleph hey vet (shared with "Zebul", etc.) hey (black on orange)
25. Kosher - kaf shin resh (red letters on white)
26. Zeeb - zayin (shared with "Zebul") aleph (shared with "Rome" etc.) bet (black on red)
27. Zebul - zayin bet lamed (black on fuschia)
29. Rome - resh vav mem aleph (black on gold)

31. Shechem - shin (shared with "yoshi" and "ninth")kaf mem (black on light blue)
32. E'dar - aleph dalet resh (white letters on green/blue)
My mind cannot contain all of the ramifications of all that we found. When I think of all these single words pointing to Messiah, and then my nickname Barb being included in the list, I think its awesome. Praise the goodness of G-d who allowed me to find all of these encoded in Haggai 2:18-19. May it be for His Glory, Blessed Be His Holy Name!!!But now set your eyes on some even more revealing Bible Codes.

Bibles Codes Plus Statistical Report: "Less then 1 in a million"
The encoded single words we found painted such a wonderful pictures for us see, but we also found that when
you line up Yeshua in a matrix of 4 across and 18 letters down, which is determined by the
Bible Code Program.
However, I was even more impressed when I ran this same 7 letter phrase in the Tanach (all of Hebrew Scripture), and did not find but two incident. One in Haggai 2:18, and the other in II Kings 21:18-25. The Tanach has 1,196,922 letters, 305,485 words, and 23,204 verses. The Tanach is a large text, and one would think we could find this 7 letter phrase more then twice at a 50 letter skip, but we do not. The odds are in high on this 7 letter code being encoded in Haggai 2:18. I went as far as a ELS skip of 1 to 386, the (Gematria of "Yeshua" Name), and found only five times that this was encoded. For the most part, I never like to use a larger ELS skip then 386. The reason is quite simple, it becomes harder to understand ELS skip's with larger numbers. Finding this 7 letter phrase in Haggai 2:18 really was a blessing.
In early editions of this article we had found the encoded words "Yeshua My Plant"- however, it was the wrong spelling of the word plant. If you have that teaching, please disguard it, its wrong. I cannot stand by it any longer.Truth is what I'm after. Thank you, Rev. Barbara Di Gilio
Yeshua Triune - Threefold - Tripartite - Trine
(According to the spelling of Super Milon Hebrew Program)
Click the Hebrew letters to see the matrix.
Bibles Codes Plus Statistical Report: "Less then 1 in a million."
Again, if we look at our matrix of 4 across and 18 down, we find another phrase in Hebrew. This one is "Yeshua Trine." Trine means: Triune- tripartite- threefold - threesome - trio- triple- triad- troika." Again I ran this 8 letter phrase in the Tanach, and did not find but this one incident in Haggai 2:18 with my skip. Again the odds are very high. Remember 8 is Yeshua number in the New Covenant. The Greek rending of His name is Jesus, which has the Value (Gematria) of 888.
Yeshua Triune - Threefold
- Tripartite - Trine
The Hebrew Scriptures came to mind right away, the Tanach is tripartite. You have the Torah (the first five books of Moses), the Nevi'im (the Prophets), and the Ketuvim (the Writings). Yeshua told His disciples "These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Torah of Moses, and in the Prophets (the Nevi’im), and in the Psalms (the Ketuvim), concerning Me." (Luke 24:44) On the road to Emmaus Yeshua told two of His followers, "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Messiah to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory?" And beginning at Moses (the Torah) and all the prophets (the Nevi'im), Yeshua expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. I would have loved to be there that day, to have had Yeshua open the Word of G-d to me as He did for them.
"Yeshua Trine - Threefold" was not found by me but by Judith Barker, one of the faithful woman at Mayim Hayim Ministries. Judith also found some other Codes I did not find. We will go over them in just a minute. So to me the Triunity of G-d is made plain with Yeshua Trine encoded in these two verses. Now, let us look at what was found diagonally in the matrix of Haggai 2:18-19.
Codes Diagonally Found
Diagonally crossing, from left to right, the word "Yeshua" in this same matrix of 4 across and 18 Hebrew letters down, we found the Hebrew word "Massa" - Strongs #4853, at a ELS of +5. Meaning: Prophecy, Burden, Set, Song, Tribute,
and Carry. The Shin from Yeshua Name which is colored red in the matrix below, is colored rose..
Finding this word crossing Yeshua's Name, and using the Hebrew letter Shin, was to me personally a "signpost" to keep on looking, and I did. For I had the "witness" of the Holy Spirit speaking to my spirit that Haggai 2:18-19 was indeed a "Prophecy of Messiah's birth in the womb." This word is very important in the life of Messiah as you will see. By the way, the word Burden can be read as the word Prophecy in some places in the Scriptures. I believe this maybe a Hebrew idiom for it, two examples below.
As using the word Massa for Prophecy, we read:
Prov 30:1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy (massa): the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,
Prov 31:1 The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy (massa) that his mother taught him.
As using the word Massa for Burden, we read:
Ex 23:5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden (massa), and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with him.
Isaiah 15:1 The burden - prophecy (massa)of Moab. Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence;
Zechariah 12:1-3 The burden - prophecy (massa) of the word of the L-RD for Israel, saith the L-RD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formed the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden (massa) themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
As using the word Massa for Set, we read:
Ezek 24:25-27 Also, you son of man, shall it not be in the day when I take from them their strength, the joy of their glory, the desire of their eyes, and that whereupon they set (massa) their minds, their sons and their daughters, That he that escapes in that day shall come to thee, to cause thee to hear it with thine ears? In that day shall thy mouth be opened to them which is escaped, and you shall speak, and be no more dumb: and you shall be a sign to them; and they shall know that I am the L-RD.
As using the word Massa for Song, we read:
I Chr 15:22 And Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, was for song: (massa) he instructed about the song, because he was skillful.
As using the word Massa for Tribute, we read:
II Chr 17:11 Some Philistines brought Jehoshaphat gifts and silver as tribute (massa), and the Arabians brought him flocks: seven thousand seven hundred rams and seven thousand seven hundred goats.
As using the word Massa for Carry, we read:
II Chr 20:25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry (massa) away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.
So this Hebrew word "Massa" has many meanings in the Hebrew, and every one fits Yeshua Messiah perfectly. Don't think Greek, think Hebrew! Messiah was a Jewish Rabbi, not a Greek thinker or teacher.
Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
Matthew 17:24-27 And when they come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Does not your master pay tribute? He said, Yes. And when he was came into the house, Yeshua stopped him, saying, What do you think Simon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? Of their own children, or of strangers? Peter said to him, Of strangers. Yeshua said to him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go Peter to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first comes up; and when you have opened his mouth, you shall find a piece of money. Take that, and give to them for me and you.
Matthew 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Matthew 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
Revelation 5:8-10 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and 24 elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you was slain, and have redeemed us to G-d by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And have made us unto our G-d kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Isaiah 40:10-11 Behold, the L-rd G-D will come with strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him: behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Matthew 13:13-17 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the PROPHECY of Isaiah (6:9) which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
Diagonally in the above matrix we did, the Hebrew word PROPHECY - Massa - Mem Shin Aleph was now leading me on in my search to keep looking for more about Messiah. Could there be more hidden in this same small matrix, my mind spoke, keep on searching, and I did!
We found all of these words as well: "Torah" - "circumcised" - "goat" - "accomplished" - "toil" - "Yah" - "today" - "chamber - inward part or canopy" - "24th" - "ninth" - "mark" - "myrrh" - "pierce" - "ascent or ascension" - "become rich."
Every one of these words are large RED ARROWS pointing straight to YESHUA MESSIAH.
"Messiah Yeshua is the Living Torah, and He was circumcised on the 8th day according to the Torah. He is the Atoning goat as well as the Passover lamb that accomplished by His toil alone that which Yah required binding. Today if you hear His voice in your inward parts, cry out to Him. He will save (deliver) as His Name Yeshua (Yah Saves) so states. The 24th of the ninth month is a mark of when G-d planted in the womb of a virgin, His Messiah. Presented with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh as a child by wise men from the East (Babylon), and again myrrh used again at His death just as the New Covenant so truthfully states. Then in the end of His set time to be on earth, He was pierced and He died, but He rose again and made His ascension into Heaven, and because of all that He did, we become rich!
Praise G-d who alone is WISE!!!
Now the Hebrew letters that spell 24th (bet dalet) and ninth (aleph shin yod ayin) are close together in the matrix. The ninth month Kislev, which is found in the text, and the 24th which is found by the way 23 times, is most convincing to me that date is important. The plain text and the hidden, bearing witness of this pivotal date. Also the letters that give us the date of the 24th are also part of the word "pierce" as well as the word, "inward part." The word "ascent - ascension - ma'aleh" is Strongs #4608 from the Hebrew root #5927; allah, meaning: ascent, to go up, an elevation, a rise, a rock that goes up, and is found above and across the word Yeshua. Really it is distinctly placed at His Head (Rosh) of all places in this matrix, this was more then I could stand. I was so overcome with joy, as G-d kept speaking to my spirit. Just as Adam was given dominion over the earth, so Yeshua was made the Head of all things by G-d.
In verse 18, Judith Barker found many of the encoded words that I found, and some I did not find. She ran a matrix of 20 Hebrew letters across and 7 down, and found the Hebrew word "Crossbeam" diagonally from left to right in the same verse. What is so odd about this modern Hebrew word "Crossbeam" is that it is a biblical Chaldee; Aramaic word. Strongs #5135 meaning: "to shine; fire." It corresponding with the Hebrew word, Strongs #5216, meaning: ner; or (fem.) nerah; to glisten; a lamp (i.e. the burner) or light (lit. or fig.):--candle, lamp, light. So the same word that spells "Crossbeam" in modern Hebrew, also spells the biblical words, "to shine like a lamp, light or candle."
Now I ask you to think about the "crossbeam" not only on the Cross, but on the Temple Menorah. Picture the middle lamp as the "crossbeam" of the Temple Menorah, the Servant lamp - the Ner El-ohim as some call it (picture below). The Servant lamp flowing its oil into all other branches and as many of you know is a picture of Messiah Yeshua - the LIGHT OF THE WORLD - a LIGHT TO THE GENTILES. Praise G-d who "Lives" forever more...
Also running vertically using the Ayin, the last letter in Yeshua Name, in the same 20 letter matrix she found the Hebrew word "Risen" - Ayin Lamed Hey and the term "Ha Shem," meaning: The Name used of the L-RD alone.
Most Significant - "What we did not find!"
Now what really impressed me as we searched all this, was that as we look up hundreds of words we did not find
anything significant that really does not pertain to Yeshua Messiah in one way or the other. One word I appreciated
that I found was "Yavneh." Yavneh is the place where Judaism survived in its present form, and
I do believe it was G-d's doing. However, we especially looked for biblical words or things about Judaism, but
we did find a few modern Hebrew words and names encoded also. These words also pointed to Messiah Yeshua in a very
power way, but that's for another time. To me the evidence of Scripture is clear enough! All the other things
just added to why I consider the 24th of the 9th month as being the right date for Yeshua's birth in the womb.
G-d has a purpose working through the ages, there are no accidents or surprises to G-d. He has full knowledge of
all that happened and is happening in this world. He is in total control of every thing, Praise the L-RD.
I will say it here, it does not really matter if Rosh HaShanah or Tabernacles is Messiah birthday outside the womb, it is the day of His conception that is important and speaks volumes to us today. When the set time had come, according to G-d's plan and schedule, Messiah, according to I Peter 1:20 was revealed: "Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you." Though fully known, purposed and ordained before the world began of the world, His manifestation as Son of Man, the Last Adam, did not take place till the fullness of time had come. Every aspect of the plan perfectly dovetailed together into the right place, at the right time (24th of 9th month), to the fulfill of all that G-d had spoken. That being the birth in earth of "His Foundation Stone!"
You must decide for yourself if the 24th of Kislev that falls on a Dec 24/25th in the ideal Jewish year was the night that was indeed "Holy" - and would be celebrated by billions over the world as Christ-mass (Christmas Eve). If the calendar was a Solar (Sun) calendar, as I believe it was, then the date would not change year to year like it does on just a Lunar calendar. The Jewish Calendar before the Babylonian captivity was based upon the Sun and not the Moon. However Torah uses both the Solar and the Lunar calendars. The entire Torah is said to be a "Scroll" of time. As the Torah is slowly turned on its spindles counterclockwise, the left roll becomes smaller ¾ and the right roll becomes larger. It is said, "The right roll is history," and "The left roll is Prophecy," and the parchment that lies open between the two rolls is: "Today's Headline News."

Enoch - A Sidebar Note
In the book, "The Secrets of Enoch" chapter 68:4-5 we read: "As every man's nature in this life is dark, so are also his conception, birth, and departure from this life. At what hour he was conceived, at that hour he was born, and at that hour too he died." What this is telling us is clear, "That life begins at conception, and that with that life (conception), death is attched or assigned because of the fall of Adam."
Shema - Hear me clearly now!!!
I do not celebrate "Christmas" like the pagans did and do, but I celebrate Messiah's Life every year being planted in the womb of Miriam. I call it "Messiah-massa" i.e. "The Prophecy of the Birth of Messiah Life in the Womb." G-d is showing all of us by this, that Life indeed begins in the womb. He counts it as sacred, as should we also. Heaven help all those who kill the seed in the womb, that which G-d allows to be planted. Millions of "Babies" have been killed since Roe verses Wade, and the blood of these innocent Children are crying out to all:
"STOP YOUR MURDERING WAYS, WE ARE PRECIOUS TO G-D. STOP KILLING THE GIFT G-D HAS ALLOWED TO BE PLACED IN YOUR WOMB. WE ARE LIVING FROM THE MOMENT WE ARE SO PLACED INSIDE. PLEASE STOP SHEDDING OUR PRECIOUS BLOOD, AND LET US LIVE!"
"I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knows right well. My bones and substance were not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unformed; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are Thy thoughts to me, O G-d! how great is the sum of them!

"LIFE BEGINS IN THE WOMB SO STOP KILLING BABIES!"
The Last Sign - 'Sign'-ificant Gematria
Pregnancy - HeRaYON!
First, let me describe what I've also penned as 'Sign'-ificant Gematria. 'Sign'-ificant Gematria is when you can find a Hebrew word in the Hebrew Scriptures, especially Torah, and they matches up with any of the ELS numbers in a matrix pointing to Messiah Yeshua. When you find these they can give us wonderful insights in the Word of God.
The last set of encoded words that I like to share with you, I found by the leading of the L-rd. El-ohim speaking these words into my spirit one morning as I lay in bed, "Check your skip of 1 to 134 in the book of Haggai for the word Pregnancy - HeRaYON, and look for a 'Sign'-ificant Gematria." I was moved to tears by His words and by what I found.
First let me say, my parameters for Haggai 2:18 was 1 to 76, and a 'Sign'-ificant Gematria of 76 in Torah is the word "Ra'ah or Ro'ah" - Strong's #7462 meaning: Shepherd; as in Psalm 23:1, and in Genesis 4:2. "Ra'ah - Ro'ah" is the Hebrew word for "Servant" in Genesis 4:2 according to "The Chumash" by ArtScroll. This word also means: "Feed" as it is used in Isaiah 40:11:
"He shall feed His flock like a Shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young."
Once again we run into this word "massa - carry"-but this time its linked to the word "Shepherd!" You see every number points to Messiah, the Aleph and the Tav.
However my parameters for Haggai 2:18-19 was a ELS skip of 1 to 134 (the numbers of letters in the two verses). So using Haggai 2:18-19 as my standard by what our L-rd spoke to my spirit, I put the word HeRaYON into my Bible Codes Plus program. What came up was one ELS skip of the word HeRaYON at a ELS skip of + 83 in Haggai 2:4 to 2:9.
4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the L-RD; and be strong, O Yahshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the L-RD, and work: for I am with you, saith the L-RD of hosts: 5 According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. 6 For thus saith the L-RD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this House (Temple) with glory, saith the L-RD of hosts. 8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the L-RD of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter House (Temple) shall be greater than of the former, saith the L-RD of hosts: and in this place (the Temple) will I give Shalom (a Name for Messiah), saith the L-RD of hosts.
So I jumped up and ran for my book on Torah Gematria (The Spice Of Torah Gematria, by: Gutman G. Locks, The Judaica Press, INC. N.Y.), and when I looked up the number 83, I found a real heart arrow pointing again to a paradigm found in Genesis 25:23. The phrase "in your womb" had a Hebrew letter count of 83, just like the ELS skip of HeRaYON. Let us read this account of Isaac & Rebecca:
"And Isaac entreated (prayed - worshipped) the L-RD for his wife, because she was barren: and the L-RD answered his prayer, and Rebecca his wife conceived. And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the L-RD. And the L-RD said unto her, Two nations are "in your womb," and two manner of people shall be separated from your bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger."
Without G-d intervening on the behalf of Isaac, Rebecca would not have conceived. Rebecca's conceiving was also a supernatural just as Miriam's was. Miriam however was a virgin, and conceived by the power of The Holy Spirit. As the Holy Spirit overshadowing (eclipsing by covering) her, a supernatural happening took place in her womb. She was given Seed supernaturally, and when pregnancy (gestation of 271) days were filled, she brought forth her son Emmanuel, which being interpreted is "G-d with us," Matthew 1:23. Praise God!!!
Now I put the word HaRaYON in a matrix of 540 Hebrew letters. That is 30 letters across, and 18 rows of letters down. I found to my amazement, the following words encoded in the matrix.
1. Yahshuah = Yeshua - Yah Saves
Again, all these words very clearly have to do with Messiah Yeshua. See what Scriptures you can come up with for the above list to see Messiah. Over and over again I found each of the encoded word showing me Scriptural truths. As I have said so many many times before, and will say over and over again in all of my teachings, "Messiah IS the Volume of the Book" (Psalm 40:7-8), and we have only just touched the tip of the iceberg.
I must wrap up this teaching by quoting from Richard Wurmbrand. My Jewish brother in the L-rd. Richard spent 14 years in Communist prisons. He went hungry, was beaten and tortured many many times over that 14 years. Living out many of these many years in isolation, in a solitary cell. Not even a whisper heard by him, nothing at all. The loneliness I could only imagine. Richard in his loneliness had only G-d to talk to, and G-d did speak with him. His book, "100 Prison Meditations" comes from that period of time in isolation.
["The numerical value of Jesus in Greek is 888, the antithesis of 666, surpassing the apogee of human holiness. He represents divine sainthood. There are secrets enshrined in the mathematical structure of the Bible. We read in proverbs 1:1, "Solomon, son of David, king of Israel." The value of the three proper names is Solomon = 373, David = 14, Israel = 541, the total = 928 which, strangely, is the total number of instructions contained in the whole book of Proverbs. It is indication for the reader, "Seek sense not only in the text of the Bible, but also in its mathematical form." The Apostles, all fisherman, toiled a whole night and caught nothing, when the resurrected Lord appeared (John 21) and told them where to throw the nets, they caught many fish. The catch was not due to their skill. Every fish caught was a sign of grace. They counted them and found 153 fish. Is it a simple coincidence that the word "grace" occurs 153 times in the New Testament? Every figure in the Bible has a deep meaning. Nothing in it is superfluous."]
In Hebrew, the phrase "Hey Samech Tet Chet" means:"the Passover sacrifice" (Numbers 9:6), and it also = 153. This speaks volumes as to who Messiah Yeshua is. Did they know that? I'm not sure, but it is John who also revealed numbers to us in Scriptures, not only in this passage John 21:11, but also in the Book of the Revelation. There we see the number 666. We could go on and on, but I think I will let Brother Richard's words be my last, at least for now! I believe this article is an on going one, and as I find the pieces the L-rd provides, I will add more to this work.
