#Purim #Psalms 83 #Rapture #Judgment #Tribulation #Syria Bible Code #Isaiah 17 Destruction of Damascus
By Tom Gaston.
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jim Bramlett emailed me and said that you were interested in the Bible Code which I have attached to this email, and that you were wondering where it was found in Scripture. I have a great number of Bible Codes now for the festival of "Purim" for this year of5776 / 2016. From what I have been finding there seems to be "strong suggestion" ( by the terms which are present ) that the middle east conflict could very well escalate involving Damascus, Syria during Purim?
An intense conflict is not out of the realm of possibility when you consider conundrum and dire situation in Syria / Damascus. I believe that what we are currently witnessing is the "prelude" to the total destruction of this city which is coming according toIsaiah chapter 17:1,2. I believe therefore that the situation in Syria is a "harbinger, sign, and warning" to us "watchers" and "prophecy students" that this prophecy concerning the destruction of Damascus is about to be fulfilled in the very near future, and of which could also mean that perhaps the Rapture of the Church is more imminent that ever before and on our doorstep?
I have found a number of Bible Codes now suggesting by the terms present that theRapture of the church could even possibly take place during Purim this year? Of course this is NOTconlusive at this time by any means, and as always we will have to wait and see? But something to seriously consider is the fact that the first Gulf war "Ended" on Purim, and the second Gulf War "started" on Purim.
Now whether or not the Church will still be here to "witnesses" the total destruction of Damascus is still yet to be seen. I am of the "opinion" that we may not be here because the Rapture may very well take place just prior to such a conflict? Nevertheless at the same time it may also be possible ( by way of conjecture here ) that perhaps a major conflictand upheavel in Syria / Damascus and the Rapture of the Church could be in close proximity to one another within the week of Purim? I don't know as I am only speculating here ( ? ), but such scenario's are not out of the realm of possibility when you consider the present situation in the Persian Gulf / middle east?
Here is something else which is amazing!
This year 2016 / 5776 is an Adar 2 year on the Jewish calendar. And the first day of Purim is on the14th Adar 2. ( March 23 -24 ). And to my amazement I have discovered that the following Jewish date / phrase is encoded in Isaiah chapter 17 which speaks of the destruction of Damascus. Here below is what is encoded in this chapter.
[... In 14th Adar 2...]
ב י ד א ד ר ב
This date / phrase above and each of its letters is encoded in Isaiah 17: 2, 3, 4, 5 on a low equal letter skip of only 29 letters. The Bible Codes program statistical "odds" says that this phrase is "less than one in a million chance" of being encoded there. Anyone who has a Bible Codes program can search for this date / phrase in Isaiah 17 and they will find it.
Now to my amazement the date Adar 14 is encoded also in Psalm 83 and in verse 11 on only a 4 letter skip. Once again the Bible Codes statistical "odds" says that this is also "one chance in 2000" of being encoded there. Here is what it looks like below.
א ד ר י ד
You will notice above that the letters of י ד ( Yod - Daleth ) which spells the number 14 are encoded "after" the month instead of in front of the month.
Now this date 14th Adar is also encoded in the following manner starting in Ps. 82:8; and running through Ps. 83:2, 3, 5, 6. on a 46 equal letter skip. You will now notice below that the letters י ד ( Yod - Daleth ) are "in front" of the month instead ofafter the month.
י ד א ד ר
Important commentary below which I want to share.
Ps. 82:8 says the following:........ "Arise, O God, judge the earth! .....etc...etc. ;
Question: When was the first time that God judged the earth?
Answer: The Genesis flood
Question: When will God judge the earth once again according to Scripture?
Answer: During the seven year tribulation period.
Many have failed to notice and give any attention to the last verse of Ps. 82:8....."Arise, O God, judge the earth! This verse is acutally an "opening verse" or introduction verse to Ps. 83 and itscontent. And the "content" in Ps. 83 gives us the answer to the question as to "why" the psalmist is asking God to personally "arise and judge the earth" In Ps. 82:8. The psalmist therefore in Ps. 83 begins to unveil and "reveal the plot" of Israel's enemies who are planning her annihilation and destruction.
O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.They make shrewd plans against Your people, Andconspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.” For they have conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites;Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined with them; They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.
Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon, Who were destroyed at En-dor, Who became as dung for the ground. Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves The pastures of God.”
( Then the psalmist in the following verses below is praying and asking God to "personally intervene" on behalf of His people Israel and to pursue and destroy her enemies. He DOES NOT call upon Israel to rise up militarily and to defeat them, nor does he mention or call upon any other nation to come to Israel's aid, but instead he is asking God to "personally intervene" and destroy Israel's enemies by Himself, alone ).
O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Likechaff before the wind. Like fire that burns the forestAnd like a flame that sets the mountains on fire, Sopursue them with Your tempest And terrifythem with Your storm. Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish, That they mayknow that You alone, whose name is theLord, Are the Most High over all the earth.
Notice in these verses above that it is "all about God" and Him initiating the destruction upon Israel's enemies. And the whole purpose for God alonedestroying Israel's enemies is so that "they" might know that He is the God of Israel who is above all the earth. Israel doesn't destroy them, but God does, and these verses show this clearly.
Everyone wants to talk about "a war " which they say is in Ps. 83 in which Israel is going "destroy her enemies" militarily mentioned in the text, but the text clearly shows that this is NOT THE CASE! This Ps. 83 war which everyone talks about is ONLY anassumption which is implied by the reader who hasNOT given any serious attention to the context of this Psalm. The psalmist makes NO mentioning of "any war being executed by Israel militarily", but rather instead he only reveals the "plot and plans" of Israel's enemies in Psalm 83 in which he is praying and therefore asking God alone to rise up and destroy all of Israel's enemies who are planning her destruction. And we know from Scripture that this destruction of Israel's enemies which is coming by the "hand of God alone" is going to take place "inside the day of the Lord / Tribulation period."
It is therefore very clear and evident from the texts of Psalm 82:8 and 83:1-18 that what we are witnessing presently in the middle east in "real-time" is the unfolding "plot and plan" of Israel's enemies which is mentioned here in Psalm 83. Therefore Ps. 83 is "already in the works" as we speak! This also means then that BEFORE God can "arise and judge the earth" as the psalmist is asking God to do in Ps. 82:8, then the Church has to first be evacuated (Raptured ) and removed from the earth and "out of the way" of God's judgments and wrath so He can conclude Israel's propehtic program and return to the earth at the conclusion of the tribulation period. The Church is NOT under any condemnation whatsoever ( Rom. 8:1), and neither is God going to subject the "Bride of Christ" to His wrath ( Rom. 5:9; 1Thess. 1:10, 5:9 ). The Rapture of the Churchhas to take place while this "plot and plan" against Israel is in the works, and of which is taking place at this very moment in history.
In conclusion here I want to say that I believe personally that Psalm 82:8 - 83:1-18 is tied directly to the destruction of Damascus which is mentioned in Isaiah 17:1,2 as I believe that these Scripture passages go hand in hand and take place within the "window of time" in which Damascus is destroyed. And I believe that the "mechanism" which God is going to use in order to "interrupt" and "foil the plans" of Israel's enemies which the psalmist reveals in Psalm 83 will be the mechanism which we call the "Rapture of the Church", at which time when God initiates this event, then it will bring about hysteria, panic, terror, and civil unrest to all the nations on a scale and a magnitude which is going to be unprecedented like the world has never seen before in all of human history. The whole world will crash economically, politically, morally.
