Bible Code: Mashiach at Sukkot

Posted by on Jun 18, 2023

The Bible codes delineate hidden messages in the Biblical stories as having layered background, in which the stories must be read not only in the immediate context of the plain meaning of the text, but also in the context of what the Bible codes have been meant to convey. Such is the story of the end of life of the greatest statesman ever born: Mosheh, whom YHVH chose to lead His people out of the land of slavery. We have Scriptural proof of existing of such a Bible code hidden the text concerning the last day of Mosheh. To this text we now turn.

The last day of Mosheh

“The irony of life is that when you have learned how to live in the world, you have to leave it.” Navah

These are the words of the last address of Mosheh to the nation uttered on the day of his death, saying,

I am one hundred and twenty years old today. I am no longer able to go out and come in. And Yehovah has said to me, “You do not pass over this Yarden”. Yehovah your Elohim Himself is passing over before you. He shall destroy these nations from before you and you possess them. Yehoshua himself is passing over before you, as Yehovah has spoken. (Deu 31:2-3)

"In the place which He chooses, read this Torah before all Israel in their hearing."

“In the place which He chooses, read this Torah before all Israel in their hearing.”

Mosheh was 120 years old (compare to Exo 7:7) and it was decreed that he would not cross over the Jordan River and enter Kana’an (see Num 20:24). And Mosheh called Yehoshua and said to him before the eyes of all people,

Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people to the land which Yehovah has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall let them inherit it. And it is Yehovah who is going before you, He Himself is with you. He does not fail you nor forsake you. Do not fear nor be discouraged. (Deu 31:7-8)

Remarkably, in Deu 31:23, when YHVH addressed Yehoshua, He used a similar language with one minor difference,

Be strong and courageous, for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land which I swore to them, and I Myself am with you. (Deu 31:23)

When Mosheh spoke with Yehoshua, he used the word תָּבוֹא tavo, while God says in verse 23 תָּבִיא tavi. Both words mean that Yehoshua and the people will enter the land. However, the word תָּבוֹא tavo (which Mosheh used) is imperfect passive voice plural meaning “you (all) will be brought,” while the word  תָּבִיא tavi (which Elohim used) is active voice singular meaning “you will bring.” What is the difference?

Up to this moment, Mosheh was leading the people through the desert for forty years. He knew, however, that he would not lead the nation into the Promised Land, because he lost his temper at the Rock. The leadership of the nation had already been decreed to pass from Mosheh to Yehoshua, but it appears (from using the passive form) that Mosheh did not have a full confidence that Yehoshua alone would be able to lead the nation as he (Mosheh) was. With this mindset, Mosheh might have delegated the power he had to Yehoshua while saying, “you will be brought with this people to the Land”, i.e., “YHVH will bring you and the people (as one of them) into the Land”.

But when YHVH spoke to Yehoshua, He gave him a different directive assuring him that he would bring the people into the land. In other words, YHVH is telling Yehoshua that he is now the leader of the nation. Yet unlike Mosheh Yehoshua still had to use the priest’s urim and tummin to inquire YHVH about the decisions he had to make. Mosheh never used them; he had a direct access to heaven.

However, there is an alternative interpretation of the peculiar language in verses 7 and 23. The transition from תָּבֹוא tavo into תָּבִיא tavi is a perfectly appropriate because Yehoshua was not appointed leader of the people in verse 7. Mosheh simply promised him an entrance with all the people into the Land. When YHVH spoke to Yehoshua, however, He used the most appropriate word for the occasion.

Then Mosheh finished up writing the Torah and gave it to the priests and to all the elders of Israel commanding them,

At the end of seven years, at the appointed time, the year of release, at the Festival of Sukkot, when all Israel comes to appear before Yehovah your Elohim in the place which He chooses, read this Torah before all Israel in their hearing. (Deu 31:10-11)

The Bible code and Mashiach

The wording of these verses teaches that every seventh year, after the close of the Sabbath Year, at the festival, when all Israel were in Yerushalayim (the place which YHVH chose) for Sukkot, they assembled to hear the Torah, according to what Mosheh had bidden them.

According to the plain meaning of the Hebrew text, verse 11 reads thus,

בְּבוֹא כׇל־יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵרָאוֹת אֶת־פְּנֵי יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בַּמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר יִבְחָר תִּקְרָא אֶת־הַתּוֹרָה הַזֹּאת נֶגֶד כׇּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּאׇזְנֵיהֶם׃

However, the Bible code in it delineates a hidden message, and the choice of words by the Torah where to place the Bible code is not incidental. Starting from the word בַּמָּקוֹם bamakom, “in the place”, and counting every second letter from right to left spells out (in red) the hidden word מָשִׁיחַ Mashiach, “anointed”, “Messiah”, within the phrase “in the place which He chooses”.

A closer examination of the text shows that the Torah is not merely being informative here, because we already know that Sukkot is one of the three pilgrimages in the Torah. The reason why this line of words (“in the place which He chooses”) is necessary, although the passage would have been understood without it, is because the Author of the Bible code wanted to convey the hidden message to the future readers of the Torah that Mashiach is to be expected in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), the city of YHVH.

Although the Torah speaks of a seemingly ordinary event, which the reader expects, i.e., the transfer of leadership from Mosheh to his disciple Yehoshua, the Bible code regarding Mashiach turns it into a prophecy. Let us recall that previously in Deuteronomy, Mosheh bade the people to expect a prophet like him. But the people did not know when to expect the prophet’s coming. We therefore view the Bible code as telling us who is to be expected: Mashiach, the Anointed of YHVH, pointing at the time of frame of his arrival: the Festival of Booths.

And remarkably, Mashiach was indeed born on the first day of Sukkot. On the eighth day after the beginning of Sukkot, there is another festival of the Creator: the Yom HaShemini. On it Mashiach was circumcised, according to the Torah, and the name Yehoshua was given to him.

On the day when the greatest statesman Mosheh died, and a new leader of Israel was appointed, Yehoshua, it was decreed in a hidden message that Mashiach would come, the Anointed one of YHVH, in the place which He had chosen.

Knowledge known to only a few will die out. If you feel blessed by these teachings of Time of Reckoning Ministry, help spread the word!

May we merit seeing the coming of our Mashiach speedily in our days!
