  5. "The Lamp," and the great blackouts of 2003
    Lamp: Bible code prophecy (North America and Italy)


(Updated after the Italy/Rome
 blackout of Sept. 28, 2003)

Important Note:

The 5th part of this 5-part series was placed on the internet a short time before the blackout. The previous four parts have their fulfillment in the recent deaths of Saddam's sons. Now God in His own wisdom and providence has seen fit to add this sign that reinforces and helps explain the rest of the bible-prophecy code as it pertains to the 'lamp'. According to Daniel 5, the 'hand' appeared next to the lamp (likely the one stolen from the temple in Jerusalem), and wrote those terrifying words on the palace wall in Babylon: "Mene, mene, tekel, peres." Amazingly, the bible-prophecy code now explains the symbolic meaning of the lamp in the writing-on-the-wall episode by interpreting and applying these same four words to this lamp!

While the blackout is not the fulfillment of the bible code, yet it is a sign that attests to it, particularly 'the darkened lamp' aspect of the code. Too many coincidences have occurred for this to be otherwise.

 (Update: 45 days after the North American blackout, 90% of Italy blacked out [55 million people]. It was their worst blackout since WW2. This is significant for 3 main reasons: "Rome" has long been identified as "Mystery Babylon" of Revelation 17:5.  I alluded to this before the Rome blackout already in this document---and in context of a blackout. The second reason that the Rome blackout is significant is that she is the 3rd city that God has signified by blackout: i) Iraq was literal Babylon; ii) New York was economic Babylon, iii) and now Rome is religious Babylon. The third main reason that this event is significant to the code is that there are 45 days between the blackout of North America (New York) and that of Italy (Rome), (Aug. 14 to Sept 28). Daniel the prophet spoke of 1290 days, plus another 45 days to make 1335. As said before the Italy blackout in point 3 and 7, there are 1290 days to the first blackout, and therefore 1335 days unto the Italy blackout! Any changes to the following document will be written in this blue type so it can be differentiated. Click here for more details, and the 666 x 2 days. Amazingly, this very night of the Rome blackout, Rome was holding its first city wide "white light" festival where the city stays open all night and celebrates!!! How more obvious can God make His signs. God's people, wake up! Here is a quote from the BBC:

 "Italy's capital was holding its first official "Notte Bianca" or "Sleepless night", an idea borrowed from Paris, in which the city stays open all night. The name literally translates as the "White Night", and it is somewhat ironic that it was brought to a premature end as the city was plunged into darkness.")

What the Mene-Code Prophecy reveals about
 "The Lamp"


Part '5'

(At every 3 letters around the central 3 letters
---vertical matrix only---same order as before, both directions.)

mene tekel bible code prophecy.

(The original code put on net several years ago
 without these notes is found here)

All notes that relate to the blackout were added afterward.
 The code, of course, is the same.


The bible code reads...

"He will give me light

---but they will refuse (it).

[The original mene-tekel-peres writing on the wall was interpreted by the light of God's lamp in the palace of Babylon, which was stolen by the king of Babylon, (Daniel 1:2; 5:1-5). The lamp represents the Spirit of Christ. The code prophesies that the revelation ('light') of Jesus will be refused, (as will the very sign of the code itself, later called, "the banner of light"). Jesus was indeed refused. He was the "light of the world," and His light was snuffed out; but, He was vindicated by God with the light of life when He rose up from the dead 3 days later.]

I will be numbered by them!

I will be delivered up!

I remained (there) but a short while. (I.e., in the grave)

[Next, Jesus Himself makes an amazing threefold prophecy, each beginning with, "I will..." Notice that the skip sequence is at every three skips, thereby enforcing the resurrection theme, and of the illuminating work of the third person of the Trinity.

Blackout: Scholars debate as to whether the body of Jesus was in the dark tomb a full 3 days or just 3 part days. However, as in the sign of the blackout, both are true. The one is symbolic and the other literal, but we honestly cannot tell with certainty as to which type of reckoning of days it was. These 3 days ended after He completed His 3-year mission as "a shining light." ('3-years' is 1290 days; i.e., '1260' plus a leap month of 30 days. Note the 1290 days from when the code began to be revealed, until the blackout.) (Jesus was delivered over to the Romans.)


(At every 4 letters around the central 3 letters
---horizontal and vertical matrixes ---same order as before, both directions.
Note: The writing on the wall was interpreted by the light of a lamp, Daniel 5:5, likely the very menorah stolen by the Babylonians, Daniel 5:3.
This part of the code explains the symbolism of this lamp.)

"Who is my mother?

(The banner of light tested them.)

He was angry! She mourned His Lamp,

---a terrifying symbol.

The Lamp melted! Terrifying wrath whirled around.

"I will give a sign!

Who is my mother? (And the light weighed them.)"


{Notice the complex bracketing of thought, (color-coded), with the phrase, "a terrifying symbol" at center. (See the hand-code for another example of this.) The literary structure aids in both piecing together the code, and it aids in its interpretation by connecting the short poignant phrases together, so as to interpret one another. This central phrase holds a clue: the lamp in the palace by which Daniel interpreted the writing on the wall was in fact "a frightening symbol" of something. The prophecy-code explains in riddles and signs what the lamp symbolizes. 

Just as the astrologers could not interpret the writing, so the outer brackets suggest that the writing will be too difficult for most to understand. When the time came for the bible-code prophecy to be fulfilled, God indeed did "give a sign", in fact many signs. The code itself interprets these signs! The series of blackouts on the earth and the series of solar flares in the heavens were two great signs that God gave to aid in our understanding of the meaning of the lamp in the code. Essentially, the "lamp" symbolizes the light of the revelation of Jesus Christ, and this light is symbolized by the great record-breaking blackouts and the great record-breaking solar flares of 2003. The first emphasizes the darkening of the lamp, and the second the flaring up of the lamp in wrath. The first represents the rejection (darkening) of the light of Jesus the lamp (and His death on the cross), and the second His unbounded wrath that flares up upon all that reject the light, (but which wrath is first seen in the death of His son on the cross). 

It is important to recall that the sun (suspended in the heavens) also went dark at noon when Jesus, "the light of the world" hung suspended in the air upon a cross. Mary, the mother of Jesus stood by and watched all this and mourned her lamp, as the terrifying wrath of God was displayed against sin in our substitute lamb. 

The phrase, "Who is my mother?" beckons us to ponder the symbolism of the mother of Jesus, as symbolized in the book of Revelation, (Revelation 12). Essentially, "the mother" represents the true Church (and repentant Israel?) and corresponds to the heavenly Jerusalem in contrast to the counterfeit earthly "Mystery" Babylon, mother of harlots, (Revelation 13). The fact that the question is twice repeated and posed as a difficult riddle that tests men suggests that people are confused as to her true identity. The locations of the blackouts identify who His mother is not, and the timing of the solar flares as to who she is. In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye she will be caught up into the heavens, "and we shall be changed," (1Cor. 15:52). But the wicked will be consumed by the brightness of his coming, (2Thess. 2:8; cf., Acts 26:13).}

Here are the details of the interpretation:

"Who is my mother?

(The banner of light tested them.)

{This last section of the bible-prophecy code is both the most fearful and mysterious. It opens and closes with a similar, yet complimentary declaration of testing. Observe the three words that differ only slightly when we compare these two lines together: 

(Opening bracket) "Who is my mother?" (The banner of light tested them.)
(Closing bracket) "Who is my mother?" (And the light weighed them.)

The two lines are in parallel in order to aid interpretation. This is a common practice in the Hebrew Old Testament. (Observe the astonishing internal complexity of the code!) "Weighed" is derived from the word 'tekel'. To "weigh" something is to "test" it, to see if it is the correct 'weight' or not. Belshazzar was weighed/tested "and found wanting". Jesus is called "the light of the world". He is the One doing the testing, having Himself been tested by God upon the cross and found genuine. 


What does, "Who is my mother" mean?

Mark 3:31-35 with Luke 8:16-21 partly answers this question since these two passages likewise connect the subject of the "lamp" with this same question of, "Who is my mother?"

" Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother." (Mark 3:32-35).

Therefore, this is the answer to the question, "Who is my mother?" "Whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother." 

The fact that this question is repeated twice suggests that there are two 'mothers': the 'mother' above and the 'mother' below, (Gal. 4.) That is, Jerusalem above (Revelation 21-22) and Jerusalem below. The Jerusalem below corresponds to the Babylonian 'church', (Revelation 17), where the "mystery mother of harlots" sits, (Revelation 17:5). Saddam honored Ishtar, the goddess of love and war, who was the very personification of this mystery mother of Babylon. Let him that has ears, hear! "Come out of Babylon!" (All Italy was plunged into darkness 45 days later, identifying 'Rome' as this "Mother.")}

He was angry---

She mourned His Lamp,

a terrifying symbol---

[Mary, the literal mother of Jesus, mourned for Him at the cross when he died as the heavens grew dark at noonday, (Matt. 27:56; Jn. 19:26). Jesus hung like the sun, suspended in midair upon the cross. The Lamp/sun was snuffed out!

(Luke 23:44-46) "And it was now about the sixth hour, and a darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, the sun's light failing: and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said this, he gave up the ghost."

The anger of God was expressed on His sin-bearing son by the darkening of the sky. The "Lamp of God" went out! But now the blazing Lamp is back, for Jesus rose from the dead like the sun at dawn. Now the lamp becomes a terrifying symbol of revenge---but revenge against whom? Recall what the code read much earlier:

"(He cried out; having been pierced He groaned.)...You will most certainly be weighed/paid, O' enemy! For He is risen and is taking revenge!...He will be appointed to a fear-inspiring right-hand! Rise up! You shall cast him down, and his rebellion!" (Recall the blackouts associated with Saddam and the fall of Babylon/Iraq.)

Amazingly, during the 6 hours on the cross in AD 30, including when the sun went dark at noon, over in the constellation of the Scales (Libra) the Passover-moon slowly "passed over" from one side of the scales to the other---being weighed, as it were, in the balances!!! The brightest star there is named, "Insufficient price/weight!" Another, "The price that covers!")

His Lamp melted (them) (or, "...Lamp was melted")

Terrifying wrath went on and on and on... 
(Word-play: lit., "...around and around and around....")

[But now, the lamp is a also terrifying symbol---a symbol of what? It is a symbol of God's burning wrath against sin, (Jesus became the substitute for our sins), and also against those that refuse the light. The idea of the "melting" (or being melted) is a common metaphor in the bible for testing, as in the testing of metals by melting them down and purging out the impurities. Hence, the theme of testing is consistent throughout the code. The code speaks of testing by light, by truth, by balances, by riddles, by signs, by bible prophecy, and by fire. In each case it is implied that Jesus passes the test, but his enemies fail. 

Blackout: Ancient lamps were often circular. Thus the flame is seen blazing in endless circles until it melts the very metal itself. Perhaps this is symbolized by the "rotating blackouts." The 3 days of "rolling" or "rotating" blackouts are similar to the circular blazing lamp; however, here in the code, the lamp (light) is more than just going out, the lamp is actually "melting!"  (Rome/Italy likewise was to experience rolling blackouts. During the blackout, a very old lady died when her candle caught her clothing on fire. This is not to speak disparagingly of anyone, but God is speaking! (See Revelation 16:10.)]

Both the sun and Jesus ("the Lamb") are compared to a lamp in the book of Revelation, (Revelation 21:23; 22:5. See Revelation 1:16; 10:1; 12:1-3). I believe that God ordained there to be heavenly signs to enforce and explain the meaning of this aspect of the bible code, (Genesis 1:14). While solar flares are common, those of the "X" class are not so common. There were solar flares of the highest "X" level that occurred within a day or so of when the mene-code was first seen, and again when the hand-code was seen, and then 42 moons (months) later with the most powerful solar flares ever on record. (The mene-tekel bible-prophecy code and the hand-code, both found in Daniel 5, are companion codes.) This particular week of unusually extreme solar flares occurred exactly 3-days before and 3-days after Halloween, 2003. Exactly 42 moons (months, or 3-years) had elapsed from when the hand-code appeared, (with its own two "X" class solar flares). (The initial weaker "X-class" flares began Oct. 23, 2000---the day I signed the lease at Edgar. This personal sign that the Lord gave me is explained here. The solar flares refer to two things: mans wrath and God's wrath.) The later solar flares were so powerful that satellites monitoring the sun were blinded, and short-wave radio was knocked out. They may have caused blackouts as well. They also produced amazing northern lights. If it were not for the protection of the electromagnetic shield that God has placed around the earth, we would all have been scorched by the sun. I believe that this is a sign and shadow of that apocalyptic judgment to come:

"And the fourth poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given unto it to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched men with great heat: and they blasphemed the name of God who hath the power over these plagues; and they repented not to give him glory. And the fifth poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was darkened; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they repented not of their works," (Revelation 16:8-11).

Commenting on the above verses, one of the "works" that "they did not repent of" was sorcery, {Revelation 9:21}. Exactly 42 moons/months from when the hand-code appeared happens to be the night of Halloween, Oct. 31, 2003. This night denotes sorcery above all other days.

moving hand code prophecy.The CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) blast, (which excites the northern lights), hit earth the very day I discovered the hand picture-code, (June 8, 2000). That night (being Pentecost) became the starting point of the countdown to the codes prophetic and

Earlier, on Feb. 4, 2000, I discovered the companion mene-tekel code. It is the other starting point. According to NASA news, it happens that: "The June 6, 2000, coronal mass ejection was accompanied by two of the most intense solar flares since a brilliant eruption in February 2000." The solar flare referred to here in "February" occurred on Feb. 5, 2000, which was the day after the mene-tekel bible code was first discovered, (Feb. 4-5, 2000), which was also 6 hours after a partial Antarctica solar eclipse! Thus, the sun flared up on the day the sun went dark at the place where the sun never sets! (for half-the year).

I will give a sign... (Revelation 12)

"Who is my mother?"

(And the light weighed them.) 

[See earlier comments. bible-code-prophecy-balance.

{The Balance Bible Code came exactly 4 years and 40 days after this code. It is an image of a Lamp weighing Israel a balance! It thus ties into the last phrase of our mene-tekel bible-prophecy code, "And the light weighed them!"}


The phrase, "I will give a sign," is spoken by Jesus again. Recall the other three "I-will..." declarations. This suggests that Jesus, here, speaks as one now resurrected, like the sun at dawn.

 (Blackout: "I will give a sign...the light weighed them." Jesus indeed gave a sign! Note the "sign" of the blackout, and of the solar flares. "Weigh" ['shekel'] is '430' in gematria; 430 x 3 days is 1290 days.) ( All Italy was plunged into darkness 45 days later. The 45 days makes the 1335 days of Daniel 12:11-12.)]

"Who is my mother?" The mother of the lamp (i.e., Jesus) is now offered as a sign. Perhaps this answers to the bible prophecy of Revelation 12:1-6, (and antithetically to Revelation 17).

"And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman arrayed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; and she was the child; and she crieth out, travailing in birth, and in pain to be delivered. And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems. And his tail draweth the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon standeth before the woman that is about to be delivered, that when she is delivered he may devour her child. And she was delivered of a son, a man child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that there they may nourish her a thousand two hundred and threescore days," {i.e., 1260 days}.




(This is what the code proclaims along the full banner. See the following documents for the full articles on the Lamp that stood before the hand that wrote on the wall, as encoded in the writing on the wall. We will not take the time to interpret them again here.)

"The garment/measurement of the Menorah is the Mina/numbering of God." 


All the "coins" visible at once. Bible code prophecy."Behold, a mina will certainly be numbered---He was judged to the uttermost! Behold, He languishes!---The Lamp wasted away because of foreigners!"

"The Mina was judged to the uttermost!
 Behold, He languishes!"


"The One doing the judging says:

"The Mina of God was judged: But for what reason was He divided?"'" 

(Lit. "Peres," and is a play on words for:

"The Mina of God was judged. Why, then, a half-mina?")





The Menorah Bible Code
 at the Burning Bush

There are two picture-code menorah's, 1290 letters apart. (Note the 1290 of the blackout.) The menorah picture-codes are found at the burning-bush passage in Exodus 4-6. The one below is shaped like a snake on a pole carrying a cross; for, like the mene-tekel code, the menorah depicts a snake as lifted upon a banner/pole/cross. Though not found in the book of Daniel, nevertheless, the central theme of both bible-prophecy codes are the same: Jesus delivers His people from bondage---the one from Egypt and the other from Babylon. (See here for that code.)


This picture bible code is that of the menorah winding like a snake into the silhouette of a Lamb carrying a cross: A powerfully symbolic picture. A Song: 

"The Lamp of His Flame"


(Jesus says:) "A lamp for her in Him I will be, 

a king for them, Jesus!"

(Leah, the symbolic 'bride' of the Lamb, replies:) "Let Him weary for me!"

(The Spirit says:) "But, for whom is His Lamb a king?

"Behold, for when the lamp of His flame shone, He sang out for joy:"

(Jesus replies:) "I AM a king for them---Jesus!"
