Atbash Code of Dumb Bel!

Atbash reads along 'The River'

 

It is important to compare the Atbash code
 with the actual text in which it is encoded.
 It is then self-explanatory. Encoded in Isaiah 46:1-6

 

 

The Atbash is derived from the Balance Bible Code

Balance Bible Code

 

Atbash codes are very rare and are more difficult to find than other codes since they use uncommon letters on average.

An Atbash code occurs when the first letter of the alphabet is substituted for the last and the second for the second to last, etc. There are two (basically undisputed) examples of this already in the bible and this code is very similar to them. However, this Atbash is 27 letters long (7 or 8 times longer than the one in Jeremiah) and is itself found within another code! Not only is this Atbash found within another code, but the Atbash is consistent thematically with both the parent-code, the surface text in which it is encoded, and the image that it forms! Moreover, the Atbash contains another Atbash within itself that relates to current events at that time the Abash was discovered! (See Qoph = Dalet = Hurricane Delta.) Once again, God is mocking the storm-god Bel (Baal)!

An Atbash code using our English letters would look like this:

Normal: a-b-c-d-e-f-g-h-i-j-k-l-m-n-o-p-q-r-s-t-u-v-w-x-y-z
Atbash:  z-y-x-w-v-u-t-s-r-q-p-o-n-m-l-k-j-i-h-g-f-e-d-c-b-a


 

 

River aspect of this bible code with Atbash.

The river contains an Atbash code deriding 'Bel' (Baal).  It, too, agrees with the text in which it is encoded. The last two letters up the 'river' are not used in the Atbash so as to attain a numeric pattern of 6 x 6 x 6 (216) letters spanned! (Click here for more on the river.)

 

"Lord of the Apes!"
(The name "Bel" [Baal] means, "Lord," "master";
hence, "Lord of the Apes!")

216 letters long, which is 6 x 6 x 6
 (Encoded in Isaiah 46:1-6)

The river reads:  

"Bow low (or, Calm down/Abate!); Be still before me! I AM Jesus! Bow low (or, Be still/Abate) and then you will shine/flow like a river!" "From everlasting, my name is the Lord!" 
(Last phrase interweaves with "I am Jesus".)

 

But its Atbash reads:

"Bel (Baal) is a stupid ape! He bends down to die!

Bel is being stripped of his refined gold 

because he is plugged up (and can't hear)!"

My oppressor will be like a spark in the sea!

(Also see the Baal Bible Code and Atbash)


{Perhaps this last line can also read: 

"This will happen when the oppressor is chained and refined
in the sea (of fire)!"}


(The above was partly paraphrased to include some
 of the double meanings in the Hebrew.)

 

 

(Or, "Bel is the letter Qoph {which means 'monkey', but which in Atbash is the letter Dalet!} He bends down to die! Bel is being stripped of his refined gold because he is plugged up [and can't hear]!" "The oppressor (or, My oppressor") will be like a spark in the sea!" 

("Stupid" also means "plugged up" as in the empty nostrils and mouth of an idol, Isa. 46:6-7.)

(Or, "Bel is an ape! He bends down to die! Bel will be stripped of his pure gold when the oppressor is refined in the sea of fire!")

The image itself forms a "river/sea of fire." The river refers to itself as a "shining river" (or "flowing river") and in the image we see that the river passes along the 'shining' seven branches of the lamp at center. However, the flames of the lamp can also be understood as a "river of fire" and not merely a shining river. And since the rivers Nile and Euphrates also are referred to as a "sea" in the bible at times, it is not improper to understand the image as 'a river of fire' or 'a sea of fire', especially since the image itself broadens out into a sea. (See image at right. Read Jer. 51:32, Dan. 7:10; Rev. 18:21, Rev. 20). The passage of Jeremiah 51 (where the traditional Atbash is found) twice refers to the Euphrates river as a "sea," which is the same word the Atbash uses to describe this river.

 

Parallels between this river-Atbash and the Jeremiah Atbash:

There are numerous parallels between this Atbash (at the river) and the one at Jeremiah 51. For example, the very name Bel is located within the word Babel, which in Atbash is called "Sheshach" (Jeremiah 51:19-26), and "Sheshach" is related to the word "Bow down!" as found in the river code, but which in our Atbash reads as "Bel"! (Bel is the Babylonian name for the god, Baal.)

 

Jer 51:41 How is Sheshach taken! and the praise of the whole earth seized! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!

Jer 51:42 The sea is come up upon Babylon; she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof. (Also see, "Balance Bible Code Acrostic.")

Jer 51:43 Her cities are become a desolation, a dry land, and a desert, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby.

Jer 51:44 And I will execute judgment upon Bel in Babylon (Hebrew, "Babel"), and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up; and the nations shall not flow (same word as in river code for "flow" or "shine") any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.

Jer 51:45 My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and save yourselves every man from the fierce anger of Jehovah.

Jer 51:46 And let not your heart faint, neither fear ye for the tidings that shall be heard in the land; for tidings shall come one year, and after that in another year shall come tidings, and violence in the land, ruler against ruler.

Jer 51:47 Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will execute judgment upon the graven images of Babylon; and her whole land shall be confounded; and all her slain shall fall in the midst of her.

 

The following is quoted from the commentary on Jer. 25:19-26 by "Keil and Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament." It represents what many commentaries have to say about the "Sheshach" Atbash. If you compare our 27-letter river-Atbash with the original river-code we see that the root meaning of the words are the same as in the Jeremiah Atbash, "To sink down (as in water)" becomes "Bel" in the Atbash. Amazingly, this bible code agrees not only with this famous Atbash of Jer. 51 (etc.) and with its context, but also with the immediate text of Isaiah 46:1-6 in which the code/Atbash is found! 'Bel (Baal) verses God' is the theme of both texts. In all cases, the golden image of Bel is being mocked!

 

Quoted from the commentary on Jer. 25:19-26 by Keil and Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament.

"After the mention of all the kings and peoples on whom the king of Babylon is to execute judgment, it is said that he himself must at last drink the cup of wrath. is, according to Jer. 51:41, a name for Babylon, as Jerome states, presumably on the authority of his Jewish teacher, who followed the tradition. 

The assertion of Gesen. that this way of playing with words was not then in use, is groundless, as it also Hitz.'s, when he says it appeared first during the exile, and is consequently none of Jeremiah's work. It is also erroneous when many comm. remark, that Jeremiah made use of the mysterious name from the fear of weakening the impression of terror which the name of Babylon ought to make on their minds. These assumptions are refuted by Jer. 25:12, where there is threatening of the punishment of spoliation made against the king of Babylon and the land of the Chaldeans; and by Jer. 51:41, where alongside of Sheshach we find in parallelism Babylon. The Atbash is, both originally and in the present case, no mere playing with words, but a transposition of the letters so as to gain a significant meaning, as may plainly be seen in the transposition to , Jer. 51:1. This is the case with Sheshach also, which would be a contraction of(see Ew. 158, c), from to sink (of the water, Gen. 8:1), to crouch (of the bird-catcher, Jer. 5:26). The sig. is therefore a sinking down, so that the threatening, Jer. 51:64 : Babel shall sink and not rise again, constitutes a commentary on the name; cf. Hgstb. Christ. iii. p. 377. The name does not sig. humiliation, in support of which Graf has recourse partly to partly to the Arabic usage. For other arbitrary interpretations, see in Ges. thes. p. 1486."

 

There are many parallels between the river-Atbash and Jeremiah 51. We have already noted that in Jeremiah 51 (and its Atbash), and in Isaiah 46 along with the Atbash encoded there, that in each occurrence the golden image of Bel is mocked! But there are many other parallels between the river-Atbash and the Jeremiah Atbash.

 

Nebuchadnezzar and Saddam Hussein:

Both Jeremiah 51 and the river-Atbash speak about the king of Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar) and about the god of Babylon (called the " dragon" in Jer. 51:34, that is, "Bel," the demon behind Nebuchadnezzar as evident from verse 44). Also, both Jeremiah and the code refer to the land of Babylon as Sodom (Jer. 50:40). The 'leaves of the tree' in the picture bible code make reference to Saddam (Hussein) by name, and the name Saddam in Hebrew is spelt the same way as Sodom! Moreover, the leaves also form a falling serpent or dragon. Saddam is that serpent and is a type of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, the ancient "oppressor" of Israel, and thus the Atbash refers not merely to Bel, but also to the king of Babylon, whose role Saddam stupidly fills at this time! Saddam is a pre-cursor of the one that is to follow, that is, the antichrist. (Also see the Mene-Tekel Bible Prophecy Code.) And Saddam is a warning sign to all would-be oppressors that they will soon share his fate. And, Riddle of Letter Nun, Atbash of Tet, (part of Mene-Tekel Bible Code.)

 

Nebachadnezzar mad.How is Saddam like ancient Nebuchadnezzar? 

Bible prophesiesSaddam likened himself to Nebuchadnezzar. Saddam ruled Iraq, which is ancient Babylon, (Jer. 50:17,23,33; 51:34). He rebuilt Babylon in defiance of God (Jer. 50:38-40), and the palace where the writing on the wall occurred. He attacked Israel with scud missiles. He filled his land with blood, but in the end he was found cowering in a snake-hole beside the Euphrates river --- the same river that the code now alludes to.

 

 

Parallels between the Atbash of Jeremiah
and the one in Isaiah

"Bel (Baal) is a stupid ape! He bends down to die!
Bel is being stripped of his refined gold
 because he is plugged up (and can't hear)!"
"This will happen when the oppressor is chained and refined
in the (fiery) sea!"

There are too many parallels between Jeremiah 51 and the river-Atbash to fully comment on; however, the following are some important verses.

The 'river of fire' and the image that the code draws (at right):

(Jeremiah 51:31-32) "Courier runneth to meet courier, and messenger to meet messenger, to announce to the king of Babylon that his city is taken from end to end; and the (river) passages are seized, and the reedy places are burnt with fire, and the men of war are affrighted."

Compare the phrase, "The reedy places are burnt with fire" with the "lake of fire" in Rev. 20, and with what the Atbash code reads: "...Bel will be stripped of his pure gold when the oppressor is refined in the sea of fire!"

The Atbash implies that the "sea" is a sea of fire since the idol's gold is "being stripped off" in this "sea", (mockingly called, "being refined"). It takes fire to refine gold! Notice that in the picture bible code the seven reeds/branches of the lamp are likewise set on fire overtop the river/sea while the book/Dalet is tied to a stone and hurled into the bottom of that river/sea. This is the very thing God told Jeremiah to do with his scroll/book about Babylon that contained the very prophecy of Jeremiah 50-51 about which we have been comparing our Atbash with! (See 51:59-64.) (Note: The Hebrew word 'kaneh' can mean 'a reed', 'a measuring rod,' 'a branch', 'a redeemer,' 'a creator, and 'the arm of a balance'! Therefore, when the code reads, "I AM a Balance" it is saying more than just that only, it is referring to all of these things at once! For everyone of these definitions perfectly apply to the image and the general context of Isaiah 44-46.) 

We have here a book or writing tablet rather than a scroll because the code points to both ancient and modern times. (Both "Dalet" and Deltos can also mean 'a writing tablet'. Dalet can also mean a leafy-branch, and hence the reason for why it is formed using the branches!) (See the Jesus-Jesus Bible Code for a similar picture bible code, except with a scroll rather than a book.)

Amazingly, the stone that is tied to the book lands right next to the Atbash where it reads "...into the sea...". (The lower three leaves beside the upper hand of the balance forms a triangular "stone" centered in the "middle" of the river that reads, "A prophet prophesied concerning a stone!" See Jer. 51:25-26;63-64.) And what is more amazing is that the (triangular) 'rope' tied around the book, (which is also called a door) reads, storm "Delta is a Dalet!" and forms the ancient triangular shape of the Hebrew letter Dalet! This is very significant! The Atbash of the letter Dalet is a Qoph, and the Atbash up the river read, "Bel is a monkey," or, "Bel is (the letter) Qoph!" And since the phrase about Bel is taken from the Atbash, it is only natural to conclude that the Atbash strongly implies that Bel is not only the letter Qoph, but he is also a Dalet!

The book reads, "The book is a door/Dalet!" and the book is being cast into the fiery sea, which, therefore, as an Atbash is the same as saying, "The book is a door/"Dalet," which is Bel-"Qoph," Lord of the apes, and he is being cast into the sea of fire! In other words, the 'book' now represents 'Bel-Qoph' personified and the book/Bel is tied to a rock and cast into the abyss of the sea! The door to Sheol opens wide! (Jer. 51:39-44.) This entire interpretation is true and verified by the Most High through mighty signs and wonders, for the discovery of this Atbash and of the Dalet code coincided with record-shattering storm Delta/Dalet and with the trial of the king of Babylon, Saddam Hussein, all on a precise numeric grid. Moreover, note the following verse:

Jer. 51:1 "Thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in Leb-kamai, a destroying wind.
("Leb-kamai" is an Atbash for Babylonia. It is the first of the two Abashes in Jeremiah. The other is an Atbash for "Babel." [See two verses down.] "Leb-kamai" literally means: "The heart of my enemy."  Notice that the river-Atbash was timed to the destroying winds of hurricane Delta & Epsilon, with Delta named. The book is cast into the heart of the sea!) 

Also recall what the river reads, from which the Atbash is derived: (Jesus can still calm the storm!) "Bow low (or, Be calm!/Abate!); Be quiet before me! I AM Jesus! Bow low (or, Be calm/Abate) and then you will shine/flow like a river!" "From everlasting, my name is the Lord!" 

Rev. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where are also the beast and the false prophet; and they shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Rev. 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat upon it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Rev. 20:12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne; and books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Rev. 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Rev. 20:14-15 And death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death, even the lake of fire. And if any was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

 

Other parallels between the Atbash of Jeremiah
and the one in Isaiah:

Jeremiah's prophecy against Babylon begins in the chapter 50 of the book of Jeremiah.

(All verses are in the NAS unless otherwise stated.)

The first verses quoted below show how that Bel and his idols are mocked in the same fashion as in the river-Atbash found in Isaiah 46:1-6. (Moreover, Bel is mocked in the actual surface text of Isaiah 46:1-6 where the code is found too!). Compare the next verses with the river-Atbash that mocks Bel. 

"Bel (Baal) is a stupid ape! He bends down to die!
Bel is being stripped of his refined gold
 because he is plugged up (and can't hear)!"
"This will happen when the oppressor is chained and refined
in the (fiery) sea!"

Declare ye among the nations and publish, and set up a standard (banner); publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is put to shame, Merodach is dismayed; her images are put to shame, her idols are dismayed."

Jer. 50:38 "A drought on her waters! They will be dried up. For it is a land of idols, idols that will go mad with terror." (NIV)

Jer 51:17-19 "Every man is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. His images are a fraud; they have no breath in them. They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes. they will perish. He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all things, including the tribes of his inheritance --- the Lord Almighty is his name." (NIV) (Also see verse 37, "a hissing", or, "a mockery," and see 50:13. Compare to Isaiah 46:1-6 where the river-code/Atbash is found.)

Jer 51:44a,47-48 And I will execute judgment upon Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up; and the nations shall not flow any more unto him: yea...

Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will execute judgment upon the graven images of Babylon; and her whole land shall be confounded; and all her slain shall fall in the midst of her. Then the heavens and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for joy over Babylon; for the destroyers shall come unto her from the north, saith Jehovah."

Jer. 51:1 "Thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in Leb-kamai, a destroying wind." ("Leb-kamai" is a Atbash for Babylonia. It is the first of the two Abashes in Jeremiah. The other is an Atbash for "Babel." [See two verses down.] "Leb-kamai" literally means: "The heart of my enemy."  Notice that the river-Atbash was timed to the destroying winds of hurricane Delta & Epsilon, with Delta named.)

Jer 51:34 "Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon hath devoured me, he hath crushed me, he hath made me an empty vessel; he hath swallowed me up like a dragon, he hath filled his belly with my delicates, he hath cast me out," (Darby) ("Dragon" can be translated "serpent" as well.)

***

Jer 51:41 (ASV) How is Sheshach (i.e., Atbash for "Babel") taken! and the praise of the whole earth seized! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!

Jer 51:42-43 The sea is come up upon Babylon; she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof. Her cities are become a desolation, a dry land, and a desert, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby.

Jer 51:44 And I will execute judgment upon Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up; and the nations shall not flow any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall. (See Jer 51:34 "Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon hath devoured me, he hath crushed me, he hath made me an empty vessel; he hath swallowed me up like a dragon, he hath filled his belly with my delicates, he hath cast me out.")

Jer 51:49 As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the land.

Jer 51:50 Ye that have escaped the sword, go ye, stand not still; remember Jehovah from afar, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.

Jer 51:51 We are confounded, because we have heard reproach; confusion hath covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of Jehovah's house.

Jer 51:52 Wherefore, behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that I will execute judgment upon her graven images; and through all her land the wounded shall groan.

...

Jer 51:59 (GNB) King Zedekiah's personal attendant was Seraiah, the son of Neriah and grandson of Mahseiah. In the fourth year that Zedekiah was king of Judah, Seraiah was going to Babylonia with him, and I gave him some instructions.

Jer 51:60 I wrote in a book an account of all the destruction that would come on Babylonia, as well as all these other things about Babylonia.

Jer 51:61 I told Seraiah, "When you get to Babylon, be sure to read aloud to the people everything that is written here.

Jer 51:62 Then pray, ' LORD, you have said that you would destroy this place, so that there would be no living creatures in it, neither people nor animals, and it would be like a desert forever.'

Jer 51:63 Seraiah, when you finish reading this book to the people, then tie it to a rock and throw it into the Euphrates River

Jer 51:64 and say, 'This is what will happen to Babylonia---it will sink and never rise again because of the destruction that the LORD is going to bring on it.' " The words of Jeremiah end here.

Saddam is not the only monkey being mocked!

 

The Text where the Picture-Bible-Code is Embedded.

 

Remarkably, this picture-bible code not only interprets the immediate text in which it is embedded, but it also embodies the imagery found throughout Isaiah chapters 40 to 53, thereby interpreting much of it. Notice that what the river reads as a 'regular' code and also what it reads as an Atbash-code both agree with the text in which the river is encoded. The river reads backward and begins at the key words, '(the gold of the idol of Bel is) weighed in the balances.' (The image is of a Balance/Lamp/Tree beside a river.)

 

The river reads:  

"Bow low (or, Be still!/Abate!); Stand still before me! I AM Jesus! Bow low (or, Be still/Abate) 
and then you will shine/flow like a river!"
"From everlasting, my name is the Lord!" 
(Last phrase interweaves with "I am Jesus".)

 

Its Atbash reads:

"Bel (Baal) is a stupid ape! He bends down to die!
Bel is being stripped of his refined gold
 because he is plugged up (and can't hear)!"
"This will happen when the oppressor is chained and refined
in the sea (of fire)!"
 (The above was partly paraphrased to include some
 of the double meanings in the Hebrew.)

Isa 46:2 They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.

Isa 46:3 Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, that have been borne by me from their birth, that have been carried from the womb;
