|Three mathematical statisticians, Doron Witztum, Eliyahu Rips and Yoav Rosenberg of the Jerusalem College of Technology and the Hebrew University, discovered words encoded in the Genesis text that was humanly impossible! For they found related names, events and dates from the nineteenth century! |
Only someone who knows the future could have placed them there!
The three mathematicians submitted their findings to the prestigious scientific journal Statistical Science for publishing, Editor Robert Kass, said:
"Our referees were baffled: their prior beliefs made them think the Book of Genesis could not POSSIBLY contain meaningful references to modern day individuals, yet when the authors carried out additional analyses and checks the effect persisted." ("Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of Genesis", Statistical Science, August 1994, p.306 )
Here's the details of their amazing discovery:
The Hebrew text of Genesis (the textus receptus or Masoretic text, which ONLY the King James Bible is from, ALL new versions use other texts) was converted to a continual string of letters. The letters were placed into a two-dimensional array, which simply means, the letters were divided into rows, each row containing a certain number of letters. For example:
(row 1) KHASDSERYQDWHADIKOTESNSINFGBEUsing computers, they then searched the Hebrew text. They discovered words composed of letters at various equal skip distances, or "equidistant letter sequences". For example, every second, third or fourth letter formed the encoded words. The word "house" might look like this:
(every second letter) HXOXUXSXESimply finding encoded words is nothing unusual. . .
It was humanly impossible for the author of Genesis to know this in 2300 B.C.! Not to mention the impossibility of encoding meaningful related "equidistant letters" into a text and then the text itself make sense!
The researchers selected, at random, 300 such related Hebrew word-pairs from names and events that occurred hundreds and thousands of years after Genesis was written. And of these 300 related name-event pairs.
The scientists stated the statistical odds of this occurring by chance are less than 1 in 50 quadrillion that's 1 in 50,000,000,000,000,000! According to scientific analysis a finding of less than 1 in 20 is significant!
One fact is crystal clear -- the Author of Genesis was not human!
Biblical Review magazine, commenting on these findings stated:
"The capacity to embed so many, meaningfully related, randomly selected word-pairs in a body of text with a coherent surface meaning is stupendously beyond the intellectual capacity of ANY HUMAN BEING or group of people, however brilliant, and equally beyond the capacity of ANY CONCEIVABLE COMPUTING DEVICE." ("Divine Authorship?", Biblical Review, October 1995, p.31)Five distinguished mathematical scholars, two from Harvard, two from Hebrew University and one from Yale, issued the following statement:
"The present work represents serious research carried out by serious investigators. Since the interpretation of the phenomenon in question is enigmatic and controversial, one may want to demand a level of statistical significance beyond what would be demanded for more routine conclusions... [T]he results obtained are sufficiently striking to deserve a wider audience and to encourage further study." (Biblical Review,"Divine Authorship?", October 1995, p.31)More demanding tests were performed ...
Using the computer analysis, the scientists searched the Hebrew text for the 34 name-date pairs. Remember, they had to be "equidistant" and in "close proximity" to register a "hit". And how many did they find?
ALL 34 NAMES AND DATES WERE FOUND!!!
There is not the least possible chance that these findings were an accident!
Someone with a far superior intelligence than you or I had to have encoded these prophetic names, dates, and events!
Statistical Science concluded:
"We conclude that the proximity of ELS's (Equidistant Letter Sequences) with related meanings in the Book of Genesis is NOT DUE TO CHANCE." ("Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of Genesis", Statistical Science, August 1994, p.434 )Biblical Review stated:
"The phenomenon cannot be attributed to ANYTHING within the KNOWN PHYSICAL UNIVERSE, human beings included." ("Divine Authorship?", Biblical Review, October 1995, p.45)
Biblical Review also stated:
"What then was the purpose of encoding this information into the text? Some would say it is the Author's signature. Is it His way of assuring us that at this particular, late moment-when our scientific, materialistic doubt has reached its apotheosis, when we have been driven to the brink of radical skepticism- that He is precisely who He had said He is. . ." ("Divine Authorship?", Biblical Review, October 1995, p.45)The researchers ran the same tests using the Samaritan Pentateuch, which is slightly different from the textus receptus or Masoretic text. According to Biblical Review (p.44) "the phenomenon was UTTERLY LACKING in letter-level variants. . ." They also tested other texts sacred and secular but no such findings existed in ANY OTHER TEXT! Only the textus receptus! The textus receptus is the text for the King James Bible! The new versions do not use the textus receptus. The new versions are NOT the words of God!

The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27, "And as it is APPOINTED unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGEMENT."
"And shall cast them into a FURNACE OF FIRE: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." Matthew 13:42
"The smoke of their TORMENT ascendeth up for EVER AND EVER: and they have NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT." Revelation 14:11
Jesus Christ took hell very serious. To Him, hell was no laughing matter. Jesus Christ says in Matthew 5:29, "If thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell."
If hell is not real, Jesus Christ was the most deceived man that ever lived! I'll challenge anyone to read the words of Jesus Christ and tell me they are the words of a deceived man! Jesus Christ knew exactly what He was talking about.
Matthew 25:41 says that hell was prepared for the devil and his angels not for YOU!
God loved you so much He gave His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in YOUR place, to pay for YOUR sin, and to keep YOU out of hell!
"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
One day you will die... today... tomorrow... next week... next month... next year... 10 years... 50 years
Don't wait until you die to know the truth about Hell! Tomorrow may be too late! Proverbs 27:1 says, "Boast not thyself of tomorrow: for thou KNOWEST NOT what a day may bring forth."
Now what are you going to do with it!
You may have made some terrible mistakes in your life. There may be some things in your life you would give anything to be able to change. But, I assure you if you die without Jesus Christ it'll be the worst mistake you could possibly make!
Friend, has there ever come a time in your life, when you trusted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? If not, you are on the way to hell! Don't let anyone convince you that when you die it will be all over! The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGEMENT." Revelation 20:15 says, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the LAKE OF FIRE."
If you've never received Jesus Christ as your Savior, bow your head this minute and ask Jesus Christ to save you.
Pray this prayer, and mean it with all your heart.
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and unless you save me I am lost forever. I come to you now, the best way I know how, and ask you to save me. I now receive you as my Savior, and give you control of my life. In Jesus Name, Amen.
