Bible Code Predictions Bomb Again
As I write these words, several Bible Code promoters are
remarkably silent. They are 'laying low' because they issued
predictions and cautionary notes just before the 4th of July holiday
concerning terrorist attacks on specific US cities. The first
prediction, offered on the Internet by a Bible Code enthusiast named Tom
Gaston, claimed that Chicago would be dealt a
significant destruction. Gaston even emailed the print out of the "codes"
with the now familiar "matrix" where the "interpreter"
scribbles the various words in English showing where the secret
messages supposedly intersect.
Since his email address includes the word rapture, we can
presume that Gaston's scriptural knowledge is as deficient as his
discernment of the obvious occultism involved in the Bible
Codes. His alarmist emails claimed the "codes" included the
words radiation, poisoning, terrorist, city, Chicago, etc.
Because this individual has claimed to run up to 250 codes in a single
day as he's being "carried about with every wind of doctrine"
(Ephesians 4:14), it's unlikely he'll actually abandon this
foolish manifestation of Satanic high-tech soothsaying.
No doubt he's now on to his next project as he continues "deceiving
and being deceived" (II Timothy 3:13).
While the Rapture Cult has obviously been caught up in the
silicon stupidity of the Bible Codes through better known false
prophets such as best selling author Grant Jeffrey,
the Catholics were not to be outdone during this tense time of
potential terrorism. At the same time Tom Gaston was
promoting his Chicago predictions of massive death and
destruction based on his read of the "codes," Catholic mystic Kathleen
Keating was warning that the codes said Boston would be
the recipient of a terrorist hit over the just elapsed holiday.
Keating issued a Bible Code based
warning that claimed the words Boston, Terror, Target, July, Fourth,
etc were in the codes that she ran. This was only the latest miss from
this false prophetess as she has already issued code based prophecies
that have clearly failed. A promoter of the goddess worship known as Mariolotry,
Keating's website also includes information from Veronica Lueken,
a leader in the worship of that certain spiritual being masquerading
as the goddess via the so-called apparitions of Mary.
Bible Code babbler Tom Mack is another false prophet
that has issued relatively high profile predictions based on the codes
and then quietly retreated when they failed. For instance, prior to
the US Presidential election, he repeatedly predicted that Al
Gore would be placed in the White House. After the election,
the Gore "codes" were quickly pulled from his website and replaced
with hastily produced codes that showed the winner would be George
Posing as a "professor" in an apparent gambit to shroud his
occultic prognostications with a scholarly legitimacy, Mr. Mack is a
frequent on air guest of radio quack Steve Quayle of the
Q Files program. Indeed, less than 2 weeks before the election,
in a national radio interview with false prophet Quayle, Mack
stated that Gore's name showed up in the "codes" so many times
it was "all over the Bible." Mack stated there was no doubt that
the Bible Codes referred to Gore as he confidently stated "he's
gonna be running things." (Q Files radio program, 10/24/2000).
It's instructive to note that the so-called "professor" has
taken the codes even further than the others. For instance, during his
interview with "slippery" Steve Quayle, Tom Mack
claimed that Al Gore's name connected 9 times to the
name Lucifer in the Bible codes. While he isn't the
only false prophet pointing at the former Veep as a prime suspect for
the office of Antichrist, Tom Mack has been
manipulating the Bible Codes in a far more sinister fashion.
Mack has determined that personal flattery is the most
effective way to manipulate people into doing his will (see Daniel
11:34), so he has adapted the Bible Codes to provide the equivalent of
personal palm reading for any Christian that is foolish
enough to listen to him. By telling various Christian leaders in the
media that he has located their name in the codes that depict
them in a flattering role during the last days, Mack has been able to
build in a dependency upon his continued research on his
hapless subject's behalf. This is, of course, the classic definition
of witchcraft. One writer had this to say about
develops a dependency relationship between the teachers,
gurus, and other instructors, and the initiates or
laity. True Christianity disdains dependency relationships and works
to make its laity dependent on God alone."
Ironically, these words were written by Tom Mack himself. Using
the Bible Codes in a fashion that is not dissimilar to a tarot
card "reader," by our count, Mack's interpretive
abilities have now ingratiated him with no less than six
nationally known "Christian" leaders. This is an extremely serious
matter as this disguised form of witchcraft is spreading
like wildfire under the facade of a scripturally sound version of
The Bible Codes are essentially a modern reversion to the ancient
heresy known as gnosticism. For the benefit of those
that are unaware of various aspects of early Christian history, the Gnostics
(from the Greek word gnosis, for knowledge) were
acknowledged occultists (from the Latin word occultus,
for secret) that taught God favored those that held secretive
knowledge based on ancient mystical understanding. Gnosticism has
roots in Freemasonry and other secret societies,
as well as Egyptian black magic that the early Alexandrian Christians
imported into their version of "Christianity."
During a recent radio interview with another of his occultic
code converts named Chris Blodgett, radio host Blodgett
and Mack openly admitted the gnostic connection
to the Bible Codes:
it's more of the Gnostic thought process then?"
These statements are simply astonishing, for Biblically centered
Christians have long known of the occultic nature of gnosticism.
Although others like Keating, Jeffrey, Gaston, TBN
and other blind guides are utilizing the Bible Codes in a misguided
effort to predict last day's events, their buffoonery is self evident
as their public prognostications have consistently failed.
"Professor" Tom Mack is much more dangerous as he has learned
how to use the codes as a tool to manipulate people secretly behind
the scenes in order to further a commercial agenda. He has now gone
into completely uncharted territory with these tactics.
Not only has Mack used the "codes" as a way to recruit allies, he's
now begun to attack enemies utilizing the codes as a weapon. In
my case, I apparently have the dubious distinction of being the first
Christian leader to be publicly maligned by the instrumentality of the
Some months ago, the Christian Media ministry began to examine
"professor" Mack and the various Christian leaders in the media that
he has quietly assembled into a secretive cabal. After Tom Mack
learned that his talk show host allies Steve Quayle and Chris
Blodgett were being scrutinized by Christian Media, he
sought to provide validation for their side of the conflict using
the codes. In every other case we've been aware of, Mack has told his
"associates" that their names are in the Bible Codes
in a flattering light. However, in order to buttress the ministry
efficacy of Blodgett and Quayle, Mack needed to find my
name in the codes in an unflattering light.
On a nationally broadcast interview on Quayle's show the Q
Files, Steve Quayle brought on Tom Mack and
he did just that. On national radio, Quayle and Mack proceeded to claim
that the Bible Codes overwhelmingly demonstrate that I am in league
with Lucifer. Indeed, they poured it on
and claimed that the evidence was so conclusive that the "Bible Codes"
prove that I am functioning in the power of the Devil.
The very idea that inside information concerning spiritual and prophetic
matters exists for the select few that are privy to the codes is
obviously occultic. Again, the very term occult means "secret."
However, the Bible itself declares that prophetic understanding
and discernment of the times in which we live are spiritual
gifts. The Apostle Peter says
"For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of
man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy
Ghost." (II Peter 1:21).
This "will of man" is itself the catalyst to the codes.
Modern men decide they must have a prophecy NOW
demand it of the Lord via the codes based on their own timetable of
convenience. But the Bible makes no provision for such things as the
Word of God declares such behaviour
in malicious spirituality as it is
be an outgrowth of the natural man's carnal mind. The scriptures
plainly state that the Lord "will bring to light the hidden things of
darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the heart...." (I
The practice of high-tech gnosticism would have been
immediately rebuked by the church at large if the church were not
already near drowning in apostasy. Very few truly
understand that the Bible flatly informs us that "certain men crept in
unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation...."
(Jude 1:4). This must occur that the scriptures be fulfilled.
Although many believe as long as they avoid such controversies and
maintain a simple faith they'll fare just fine, the scriptures instead
tell us we must renounce "the hidden things of
dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God
deceitfully." (II Corinthians 4:2). This word renounce has a
decidedly combative connotation to it. This means conflict will
be the inevitable result as the light clashes with the darkness. Jesus
not that I am come to send peace on Earth: I came not to send peace, but
a sword. 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. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household."
The battle is definitely raging here at the Christian Media
ministry. We'd like to tell everyone a great deal more about this spiritual
war (particularly the occult threat of the Bible Codes), and
the forces that have been arrayed against us as we've sought to tell
the truth to any that will listen. To further that
mission, we have a new website that we'd like you to visit. The
link is below. Once you've seen it, we ask you to please forward this
information to every Christian you know so they can be aware of what is
occurring as well.
In the meantime, please pray for us and we will pray for you.
