August Fires in Greece, 2007

as Predicted in the Balance Bible Code
 and the English Bible Code


River Balance Bible Code Prophecy. "And I AM the Lamp, and my fire will certainly come!" 

I will not take the time to explain the fires of Greece in detail. I find that details have a way of distracting the reader from the main point, that is that the code predicted the fires three years in advance.

ANCIENT OLYMPIA, Greece Aug 27, 2007 (AP)

Firefighters backed by aircraft dropped water and foam on the birthplace of the ancient Olympics Sunday to stop wildfires from burning the 2,800-year-old ruins, one of the most revered sites of antiquity.

But the fires burning for three straight days obliterated vast swathes of the country and the death toll rose by 11 on Sunday to 60.

Desperate residents appealed through television stations for help from a firefighting service already stretched to the limit and many blamed authorities for leaving them defenseless.

"Fires are burning in more than half the country," said fire department spokesman Nikos Diamandis. "This is definitely an unprecedented disaster for Greece."

Diamandis said 89 new fires broke out during a 24-hour "Fires are burning in more than half the country," said fire department spokesman Nikos Diamandis. "This is definitely an unprecedented disaster for Greece."

Diamandis said 89 new fires broke out during a 24-hour period starting at 6 a.m. Sunday. Twenty-eight were considered particularly dangerous.

Government and firefighting officials have suggested arson caused many of the blazes, and several people had been arrested. The government offered a reward of up to $1.36 million for anyone providing information that would lead to the arrest of an arsonist.last three days. Arson is often suspected, mostly to clear land for development. No construction is allowed in Greece in areas designated as forest land, and fires are sometimes set to circumvent the law.

The front of one fire Sunday reached Ancient Olympia in southern Greece, burning trees and shrubs just a few yards from the museum at the site. Firefighters said the flames, fanned by high winds and swirling air, leaped hundreds of feet in the air at times.

The nearby grounds of the International Olympic Academy were completely burned, as was the grove where the heart of Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games, is buried.

Although the pristine forest around Ancient Olympia was burned, none of the ruins were damaged.

"Firefighters fought a battle in Ancient Olympia, which was won," Diamandis said. Authorities said at least two firefighters had been injured in the battle with the flames on Sunday.


Greek Fires Reach Ancient Olympics

Ruined temples of Zeus, king of the ancient Greek gods, and his wife Hera stand on what was a lush riverside site a flat stretch of land surrounded by pine-clad hills near the stadium that hosted the ancient Olympic games for more than 1,000 years after they started in 776 B.C. The site strewn with fallen columns includes the remains of a gymnasium, a wrestling hall, hostels, bathhouses, priests' residences and altars. The 5th century B.C. limestone temple of Zeus is one of the largest in mainland Greece.

Helicopters and aircraft covered the ruins with water and foam. The flames reached the edge of the ancient stadium, searing the grass and incinerating the trees on the hill above. Volunteers grabbed buckets of water and joined firefighters.

"The important thing is that the museum is as it was and the archaeological site will not have any problem," Culture Minister George Voulgarakis told The Associated Press at the site.

Firefighters remained in the area after dark to ensure the fire did not re-ignite.

"It's hell everywhere," said Costas Ladas, a resident of Kolyri near Ancient Olympia, who said the fire covered more than a mile in three minutes. "I've never seen anything like it."

Local schoolteacher Gerassimos Kaproulias criticized the government, saying it was totally unable to deal with the fires.

"I am very angry," he said. "Nobody thought that one of the five most highly protected areas in Greece could be burned like this."

The fire also blazed into the nearby village of Varvasaina, destroying several houses. As residents rushed to battle the flames, others, stunned, walked the streets holding their heads in their hands.

The worst of the fires have been concentrated in the mountains of the Peloponnese in the south and on the island of Evia north of Athens. Strong winds blew smoke and ash over the capital, blackening the evening sky and turning the rising moon red."

Elsewhere, flames were about less than two miles from the Temple of Apollo Epikourios, a 2,500-year-old monument near the town of Andritsaina in the southwestern Peloponnese, said the town's mayor, Tryphon Athanassopoulos.

"We are trying to save the Temple of Apollo, as well as Andritsaina itself," he told Greek television.

Across the country, churchgoers prayed for the blazes to abate.



The Fires in Greece Explained 
as it relates to the Balance Bible Code and the English Bible Code


The Balance Bible Code predicted a "coming fire". It reads: "I am the Lamp and my fire will surely come!" It also formed a torch like an 8th flame on the menorah (lamp) that represented the Olympic torch, as said three years ago.


Composite bible code of lightning, an eye of a hurricane, a cloud, a river, etc.

1. Baal (Bel) was the storm God of Babylon, but is really just Zeus of the ancient Greeks. At the Olympic games beginning on August 13, 2004, God challenged Baal to a contest to see who is really God and who is just a demonic impersonator. God did this because these gods were honored at the games before the whole world. (See "Axe to Root" for all the details and links to other sites that document what I am saying.)

2. According to the ancient Greek myths, the Olympic games were a contest that echoed the games between the (so-called) gods. In accordance with their own myths, and as a way of mocking these false gods, the one True God challenged Zeus (Baal) to an Olympic contest as it was in the days of Elijah. However, this is really not a challenge at all. God simply took the opportunity to prove Himself to an unbelieving world. For who can contest with God!

3. God won (of course), and predicted Hurricane after Hurricane beginning with Hurricane Charlie that struck the same day as the opening ceremonies where they were praising the gods of wood and stone at the Olympics. God had said the day before this, that, "The Axe is laid to the root of the tree", as I saw encoded an axe laid to the root.

4. The following is a quote from the "Axe to the Root" article written three years ago. Note that the Balance Bible Code predicted a "coming fire". It reads: "I am the Lamp and my fire will surely come!" It also formed a torch like an 8th flame on the menorah (lamp) that represented the Olympic torch, as said three years ago. Note the reference to this fire in the following quote from the  "Axe to the Root" article, as said, written three years ago.

River Balance Bible Code Prophecy"It is interesting that Greece (on Friday the 13th) honored their gods by lighting the altar (a phallic symbol) with the Olympic Flame. Note the parallel to the code: The middle flame of the Lamp in the picture-code is lit by the phrase, "My fire will surely come."  Given the timing of the code, I believe that this phrase is alluding to the world Olympic games, this time held in Athens, Greece---the land of its origin. But God, too, has an altar to light, and indeed did light it 2000 years ago (720,000 days) at the cross. 

Even on the Google search engine, every day there is a different god portrayed as shooting at a target. Today it is an image of the goddess Athena shooting an arrow and getting the bows eye. The god (Satan) of this world is boasting! Moreover, it is interesting that the first half of the seven flames in our picture-bible-code read: "Did (Jesus) miss the mark...?" (ending on the same middle flame that read, "My fire will surely come!").

The torch has come! The altar is lit!

As a matter of fact, do I see a Fiery Spear/Javelin in the hands of the menorah-tree of Justice---that is, in the hands (handles) of the balance of "The appointed King"?


Or perhaps it is a sword

But the javelin is, after all, in the correct position for a throw---balanced precisely dead-center on the balance! Or perhaps it is both? 

"Let him who can, let him receive it," says the Lord! And indeed He did receive it---even in His side! "And yes, a sword will pierce your heart too!" (Luke 2:35).

Here is a quotation about the proceedings concerning "The Olympic Flame" on Aug. 3.

(The picture to the right is the actual scene dramatized at the opening ceremony on the 13th).

Olympic website: "The Flame will stopover in the stadium at Delphi to poetry and music as celebrations continue all night. The relay reached the temple of Athena Pronaia at 8.30 p.m to the stirring sound of the antique pipe. A choir was in wait at the Castalian fount to take up the ancient rite. As the Flame approached the house of Sikelianos music gave way to poetry, with lines from this poet being recited. The Flame entered the temple of Apollo to the notes of an Orphic hymn. There it encountered the choreographer Maria Hors, intimately bound up with the birth of the Olympic light at Ancient Olympia. Mrs Hors kindled the altar. Among the Torchbearers was priestess Anna Skoulikidou. Delphi's mayor Panagiotis Kaltsis greeted the Flame with the words: "From the Navel of the Earth and the cradle of the universal heritage of civilisation we send a message of hope. We send the rose of Greece to the peoples of the world. The Olympic Games are a festival of the citizens of civilisation"...And there was more to come, the night long."

"According to historic records, the first ancient Olympic Games can be traced back to 776 BC. They were dedicated to the Olympian Gods and were staged on the ancient plains of Olympia, famous for its magnificent temples of the gods Zeus and Hera. They initially had a religious character and combined a number of ancient sporting events, many of which were based on ancient Greek myths."

"A number of Greek myths are directly connected to the ancient Olympic Games and add a symbolic dimension to them. According to the ancient Greeks, Greek heroes and gods were the ones who held the very first Games. Many depictions of these mythical figures and races can be found at the 5th century pediment and metopes of the Zeus temple in Olympia." 

The official grand opening ceremony on Fri. Aug, 13th (the day of darkness), likewise glorified the gods of Greece, (who are really just the gods of Babylon with other names---the gods of the "New Age"). 

I believe that America was singled out for the hurricane because America dominates the Olympics just as she does the world."


5. The companion English Picture Code was discovered three years after the Balance Bible Code. It, too, reveals an image that seems to have had these fires partly in mind. The following is what I wrote back a month ago when I put this first-ever English Picture Bible Code out (before the Olympic fires). 

The "temple" of the glasses (i.e., the rod used to hang glasses on the ears) reads/reeds, "Eyer, eyes north --- hope!" She is looking upward toward the north to north-west sky, where a storm is rising. (This is Russia and Europe as seen from the direction of the sea of Galilee.) 
(End of Quote.)

upward toward the north to north-west sky, where a storm is rising. (This is Russia and Europe as seen from the direction of the sea of Galilee.) 
(End of Quote.)

(This code also dates the 'temple' of the glasses in the code to include Tammuz 17. See point # 17.)

If one looks at the image, it looks like a fire burning. And it burns, as said, in the direction of Europe.

Fire rages across Styra, Evia 6. God does not rejoice in the death of anyone, but sadly, about 65 people died in those fires in Greece. The above news article reported that the sky became reddened. (See image at right.) It happens that a day or two later, the moon again went blood red in a full eclipse exactly three years after the Olympic games in Greece. (360 x 3 days plus one leap month of 30 days. See point # 13.) 

The image at left is that moon undergoing the eclipse, and notice the bird that a reporter happened to shoot for dramatics. But I believe it was a sign in that it reminds us of the code of the two birds fighting each other with the fiery river flowing out from between them.  Full lunar eclipse.

The English Code predicts and depicts God pouring out his spirit on people and giving them eyes to see and mouths to prophecy, as He did at Pentecost as recorded in the book of Acts. The image of the encoded face is that of a women having a vision. Therefore, ponder the words spoken by the apostle Peter:


Act 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was now come, they were all together in one place.

Act 2:2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them tongues parting asunder, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one of them.

And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions, And your old men shall dream dreams:Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Act 2:5 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.

Act 2:6 And when this sound was heard, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speaking in his own language.

(Note: It is interesting that nations from all over came to help put out the fires, including from Israel.)

Act 2:16 but this is that which hath been spoken through the prophet Joel:

Act 2:17 And it shall be in the last days, saith God, I will pour forth of my Spirit upon all flesh: And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions, And your old men shall dream dreams:

Act 2:18 Yea and on my servants and on my handmaidens in those days Will I pour forth of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.

Act 2:19e of the Lord shall be saved.


9. Note that the English Code happens to have "Sow" (female pig) written twice upon the roof of the false temple (i.e., the whore house) to "Baal"/Zeus. Recall that swine was offered by the Greek tyrant Antiochus upon the Lord's altar when he desecrated the temple of the Lord for 1150 days in 165 BC. 

(Image at right was put out on the internet about a week before the fire. Click here for main article on the English Picture Bible Code. Click on image at right to enlarge. Note 'house' at upper left corner. The Lord's "temple" is parallel to the false one, and is above the glasses in the shape of a crown, that is, just above the head of the owl.)


10. Hurricane Felix (and all the hurricanes): 

God has again been predicting the hurricanes this year as He did in 2004 and 2005. Thus, along with the fires in Greece are the Hurricanes again. Even today, as I write this, two more hurricanes are striking strongly Roman Catholic countries as they did the predominately Protestant United States in 2004-2005. (Note that the house at right in the code is identified as "Rome".)

As someone reminded me, for the first time in recorded history there is a pincer movement of 2 hurricanes from different directions. One from the Pacific and the other from the Atlantic on Central America that make landfall about the same time. Note the image of the two owls/eagles swirling around each other like two great storms, forming a symbol similar to that of the hurricane symbol. The timing of the storm has to do with the 2300 of Daniel 8 and the conquest of the Promised Land in 1406 BC "in the mirror, but I cannot elaborate now so as to keep things short.) 

Hurricane Felix also set another record that caught forecasters completely by surprise:

"Felix set a record by strengthening from a tropical storm to a Category 5 hurricane—the category for the most destructive storms on the Saffir-Simpson scale—in only 51 hours.

"It strengthened more rapidly than any other storm on record, anywhere in the world," Blackwell said." (See National Geographic: "Hurricane Felix Forecasts Mostly Failed, Experts Say.") 

(In the same way judgment will swirl quickly and suddenly upon men from ever direction. And they will not escape. But for now God is showing mercy, not wrath, in this, the display of His power.)

(2006 was a year of rest being a type of jubilee from 445 BC according the the 490 cycles of Dan. 9 as explained elsewhere. Remember, that in all of this, God's ultimate intention is to display grace. If it were not for God holding back these things, they would be many times more sever.)

English-cry-tear.jpg (88257 bytes)In the following news article about Hurricane Felix, I cannot help but think of the picture code about the storm stilled by Jesus with the 12 fishermen (disciples) in the boat. The sad death of these people in no way means that they deserved this fate, but God in His sovereignty uses all things, tragic and good, to speak to men's hearts --- if they have ears to hear and eyes to see. 

Note that the (vertical) image of the prophet (seer) hidden in the background of above-right image. The seer is seeing this vision of a boat in a storm and is weeping. The seer also sees the eagle/owl swooping in to rescue him. (Compare left and right images closely. Click on images to enlarge.) The tear formed literally reads, "Eye Cry A Tear!" Compare this to the following news article about Hurricane Felix.

"There are more than 200 people missing," President Daniel Ortega said. "We are talking about really serious damage."

People wept at the harbor in Puerto Cabezas, inhabited mostly by Miskito Indians, for 12 missing fishermen." (Reuters)


And the next story reminds me of Jesus being plucked out of the waters, who serves as a type of a remnant being saved from destruction, (Rev. 12). The code is numbered at 12 x 12,000 letters, 144,000, less 6 x 6 x 6. In the bible, these numbers symbolize a remnant snatched from the world {"sea"}. (Keep in mind that these picture codes apply to many passages of scripture that are related to one another. There is no one single application.)

"Among the missing were four fishermen whose small sailboat sank as Felix's center passed overhead. A survivor, Fernando Pereira, 24, said he clung to a piece of wood for 12 hours, despite a dislocated shoulder, and washed ashore at the village of Sandy Bay only hours after Felix made landfall there. He hadn't seen his friends since.

"I felt horrible," he said. "I was drinking salt water, and I thought I was going to die."'" (



"It is worse than we previously thought," Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said as he met officials...

"Many people were out in fishing boats when the storm hit, unaware of what was in store.

She feared many more bodies would be found in the ocean." (BBC)


Consider these verses and compare them with the Picture Bible Codes:

Rev. 12:7-8 "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his angels; And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven.

Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.

Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman that brought forth the man child. (I.e., Jesus)

Rev 12:14 And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."

11. The chart outlines the main dates in the book of Ezkiel.I said that the Balance Bible Code was first discovered June 27, 2004, and this was Tammuz 12 on the 360 calendar. (See top of this page for significance of Tammuz 12.) 1155 days later was the day that the fires burned into the Olympic site where the temple of Zeus once stood, and where the torch is lit. Therefore, from Tammuz 17th (Tam. 12 + 5 days = 17th) to August 26, 2007 when the fires reached the Olympic grounds are exactly 1150 days. The prophecy in Daniel 8 about the 2300 "evenings and mornings", i.e., 1150 days, refers to the Greeks desecrating the temple of the Lord. It happens that Tammuz 17 is the anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC, and again in AD 70 by the Romans when the sacrifice ceased for the temple and thereby defiled it! Thus, the 1150 days begins from a date that fits well with the theme of the desecration of the temple as per the 1150 days of Daniel 8.

12. As most commentaries will tell you, the 1150 days of Dan. 8 is further broken down as 40 + 1110 days (or 70 + 1080 days). (The swine was offered to Zeus exactly three years before the temple was cleansed, 168 to 165 BC.) 1080 days is three years. (360 x 3). 1110 days is the same as 360 x 3 except it has a leap month added, as was the case between the years 2004 and 2007. And this is essentially the same breakdown of the 1150 days as we have here with the Olympics and the fires. About 40 days from Tam. 17 on the 360 cal. was when God said "The Axe is laid to the Root", and then the games began, and then about 1110 days later (3 years) were the fires in Greece.

13. Each day has a symbolic day-year. I have explained this many times and cannot take the time to explain it again here. But the phenomena is consistent and predictable on a grid hundreds of years in advance. 

The date of Tammuz 17, 2004 (that is, 5 days after the Balance Bible Code and 1150 to the fires), symbolizes the years 2054 BC and AD 1967. (These dates are not forced, but are on a set grid as explained on the Balance Bible Code three years ago if one took the time to simply calculate them for themselves using the rules explained repeatedly back then!) It happens that 2054 BC is when Isaac (Abraham's son) was 12 or 13 years old, that is, about or exactly the year when Isaac was to be offered up as a sacrifice on Mt. Menorah. And AD 1967 is when God's temple mount was captured by the Israelis in old Jerusalem. It had been in enemy hands since Tammuz 17, AD 70 when the Romans took it. 

These events, the sacrifice of Isaac and the recovery of the temple mount, both have to do with sacrifice or desecration and therefore relate well to the theme of the 1150 days and the fires at the grounds where the temple to Zeus once stood --- and his image --- one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. God repaid Zeus for what he did by his servant Antiochus, and serves as a warning about what God will again do when the antichrist sets himself up in the temple that will be rebuilt in Jerusalem one day --- and his image. God will again judge the antichrist and the god of the antichrist.

Here is a description of the image of Zeus at Olympia that once stood there:

"In his right hand a figure of Victory made from ivory and gold. In his left hand, his scepter inlaid with all metals, and an eagle perched on the scepter. The sandals of the god are made of gold, as is his robe." Pausanias the Greek (2nd century AD)

Thus, God judged the very spot where they lit the torch! (Interestingly, the tradition of the torch-run began in 1928 as a means to promote Nazism.)



Click on image for details about it. 
The purpose of showing this image is to prove that the temple has been an important aspect of the English Code before the Olympia Fires. I did not add it afterward, but it was already put out a few weeks prior, including this personal sign about the coming destruction of the temple from the North West (Europe and Russia, as situated from the direction of Israel)
