A Secret Mathematical Code
Some claim to have discovered a secret mathematical code in the Bible that reveals some hidden information. These claim that for 3,000 years a secret code in the Bible has remained hidden. But now it has been unlocked by the computer – and it may predict the future of humanity.
It is true that the Bible has some difficult passages to understand, but the Lord promised that everyone who sincerely seeks to know the truth that he will find it. Jesus promised, “the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth” (John 16:13).
Jesus, in all of the times that He quoted Bible passages, never made a use of a Bible code to decipher a meaning. Likewise, Paul and all the Bible writers in all the times they referenced Old Testament passages, never used a “Bible code” to reach an interpretation.
It is only through the guidance of the Holy Spirit that God’s mysteries can be revealed. The unconverted individual cannot by his own intellect understand the scriptures. For “the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God…nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:14).
But the gift of the Holy Spirit is promised only to the obedient: “the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him” (Acts 5:32). The obedience of the creature to the Creator is the basis of right relations with God. Obedience is better than any sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22). Truth (Romans 2:8), correct doctrine (Romans 6:17), and the message of the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) are to be obeyed. We should not expect God to shed His light when we are deliberately breaking His commands.
Everyone can gain an understanding to the Biblical truths, and not because they discovered a secret mathematical code, but rather because God opens their minds. All we need to understand from the scriptures can be gained from a straight study of its content by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 also 3:16-17).
