Torah code reveals dates of 3 major events in recent history

The majority of the following Torah Code was discovered in April 20’20 by the Director of Ask Noah International. The code extends over three consecutive verses in Moses’ prophetic Song at the Sea (Exodus 15:1-18). The three verses are Exodus 15:9-11.

The following diagram depicts the Hebrew letters (with their vowel and cantillation signs, as Hebrew is read from right to left) of these three verses, arranged in a grid that is 30 letters wide. The code letters are indicated in the solid-color squares.

Code for the first event and date – Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in 19’90

This is coded in verse 15:9, which is outlined above in orange. I first learned of this code in the winter of 19’90, from Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski o.b.m., who was the President of my synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. My understanding is that he discovered this code, but I have not verified that.

English translation: The enemy said: ‘I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’

Hebrew text: אָמַ֥ר  אוֹיֵ֛ב  אֶרְדֹּ֥ף  אַשִּׂ֖יג  אֲחַלֵּ֣ק  שָׁלָ֑ל  תִּמְלָאֵ֣מוֹ  נַפְשִׁ֔י  אָרִ֣יק חַרְבִּ֔י תּֽוֹרִישֵׁ֖מוֹ יָדִֽי

As we go from right to left in the Hebrew, there are eight highlighted letters, which are all initial letters of consecutive words in the verse. These form the date of a year in the Hebrew calendar. First, the letter aleph (א) is repeated five times. The letter aleph stands for the Hebrew word eleph, which means “thousand”, so this letter repeated five times can be understood as the number 5000. The next three letters are ש (numerical value 300), ת (numerical value 400) and נ (numerical value 50), which add up to 750. We thus have a code for the Hebrew year 5750, which overlapped the secular year 19’90.

The next consecutive word is אָרִ֣יק (arik), the letters of which can also be pronounced as irak, which is cognate with the name Iraq. This prophesies that there will be an event in the year 5750 involving the nation of Iraq. And in fact, Iraq invaded Kuwait on 2 August 19’90, corresponding to the 11th of Menachem Av, 5750. Obviously, this verse itself echoes the theme of that event!

Code for the second event and date – the Indian Ocean tsunami in 20’04

This code which I discovered (shortly after discovering the code below) is rooted in verse 15:10, which is outlined above in green.

English translation: You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; they sank like lead in the powerful waters.

Hebrew text: נָשַׁ֥פְתָּ בְרֽוּחֲךָ֖ כִּסָּ֣מוֹ יָ֑ם צָֽלֲלוּ֙ כַּֽעוֹפֶ֔רֶת בְּמַ֖יִם אַדִּירִֽים

The two highlighted letters occur in the world that means “covered”. In the diagram above, these are letters in two strings of Hebrew letters that that run vertically, highlighted in yellow, through the preceding and following verses, with a spacing of 30 letters. The first string is the word מים (mayim), which means water. The letters in the second string can be rearranged as תשסה, in which the letters are the numerical equivalent for the Hebrew year 5765: ת (numerical value 400), ש (numerical value 300), ס (numerical value 60) and ה (numerical value 5) add up to 765, and in writing the year in Hebrew, the thousand’s place is always omitted as being implicit.

This prophesies that there will be an event in the year 5765 involving water. And in fact, the Indian Ocean tsunami occurred on December 26, 20’04, corresponding to the 14th of Tevet, 5765. Obviously, this verse itself echoes the theme of that event!

The meaning of the spacing of 30 letters becomes evident from the next code.

Code for the third event and date – the Corona Virus which became pandemic in 20’20

This code which I discovered in March 20’20 is rooted in verse 15:11, which is outlined above in red.

English translation: Who is like You among the powerful, O L-rd? Who is like You, powerful in the holy place? Too awesome for praises, performing wonders!

Hebrew text: מִֽי כָמֹ֤כָה בָּֽאֵלִם֙ יְהֹוָ֔ה מִ֥י כָּמֹ֖כָה נֶאְדָּ֣ר בַּקֹּ֑דֶשׁ נוֹרָ֥א תְהִלֹּ֖ת עֹ֥שֵׂה פֶֽלֶא

The highlighted letters are a code with a spacing of 5 letters. It forms a word כרנה which can be pronounced as corona. There is a classic targum (translation) of scripture in which this word is used with the meaning of  “illness”. The fact that the verse of this code is connected to the verse of the first code above, through an intermediate code with a spacing of 30 letters, can now be understood as a prophesy that there will be an event involving corona/illness in 20’20/5780, 30 years after the event involving Iraq in 19’90/5750. The word נוֹרָ֥א (norah = awesome) can also be translated as “terrible,” “dire,” “fearful,” or “shocking”. So obviously, this verse itself echoes the theme of that event!

What is the lesson for us?

The Jewish kabbalistic tradition teaches that the Five Books of Moses (the “Written Torah” that G-d dictated to Moses) existed in G-d’s wisdom before He made the creation, and that He “looked into the Torah and made the creation”. In other words, everything that would happen in the course of history was already pre-planned and coded within the text of the Torah by G-d, so that the Torah served as the blueprint for creation. Many hundreds of Torah codes for events, names and dates in history have been discovered in recent decades by computer analysis. Some can be found by visual inspection, as in the three connected cases above.

But of what use is it to us to discover codes in the Torah for events in history, after those events have occurred? It should convince us (or boost our inspiration if we were are already convinced) to know the Torah is Divine and could only have been composed by G-d Himself, and therefore it is true, its commandments are true (the 613 Jewish Commandments and the Seven Noahide Commandments), and its explicit prophecies in the verses themselves are true. These include the prophecies of the immanent coming of Moshiach (the Messiah) and the Final Redemption which are enumerated by Rambam in Laws of Kings, chapter 11. And in this Song at the Sea, the literal translation of “Az yashir Moshe” in the first verse (15:1) is, “Then Moses will sing …,” which the Sages of the Talmud identified as a prophecy of the future Resurrection of the Dead.
