Rapture Bible Code Reveals Time of Rapture

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.





Years ago, I found a rapture Bible Code in the KJV that succinctly tells when the rapture will occur. The other day a reader reminded me of this so, I decided to do another post about it. But before I show you the code let me give you a little primer on Bible codes in general.

Have you ever heard of something called an ELS Bible code? In recent years the subject of the Bible codes has come to the forefront of mainstream media outlets. The topic has been popularized on talk shows, by bestselling books, and through TV documentaries. Some claim to have found Bible code matrices, which contain information about WWI, WWII, Shakespeare, John Kennedy, and The World Trade Center attack, even information about Jesus Himself.

For the fundamental Christian the topic poses many questions such as; what are the Bible codes? Are they from God, satan, or coincidence? What purpose, if any, do the codes serve? In this article we will examine the facts about these phenomena and answer the above questions.

We will first answer the question; what is a Bible code? A Bible code is an equidistant letter sequence code or for short an ELS code that has been found in the text of the Hebrew Scriptures. An ELS code is a form of writing whereby one incorporates hidden messages within a text. For example, the following short sentence contains an example of an ELS code. See if you can find the hidden message in the sentence.




Here is how to find the message; Pick the first letter, skip 3 letters and pick the 4th letter, then skip 3 letters and pick the 4th letter, do this 2 more times and the word HELLO appears.




This is a very simple example of what an ELS code is. For years governments have used this type of code to send secret messages. So, when people refer to the Bible codes they are referring to ELS codes found in the Hebrew texts of scripture. Here is an example of a simple Bible code that is included on Research Systems Code Finder Bible Code Software.




The above is called a Bible code matrix. A Matrix is an array of letters formed by taking the Hebrew text of a scripture portion with the word spaces removed. The letters are then placed in a rectangular array. The circled, or boxed letters in the above matrix are the letters of the encoded words found at various skip intervals in that matrix.

Here is the list of words from the matrix above which were found encoded in the scriptures about a forest fire in Haifa. The first term in the list, which is the center term of the matrix, sets the theme and letter array of the matrix. The other terms listed below also appear in the matrix at various skip intervals as listed below.



Now that we have a general idea of what a Bible code is let’s examine the facts about them to determine whether the encoded information that is being found in the above matrix and other Bible code matrices is from God, satan, or by coincidence?

First let me state that it is true that if you have a large enough text you can find random ELS codes, which happen by way of coincidence, in any text. However, by applying statistical analysis one can determine if a term or terms, which have been encoded, were encoded by coincidence or by design.

For example, you will find the word “hello” encoded thousands of times in a large book such as War and Peace. Through statistical analysis of the term you would see that the word has the likelihood of occurring quite frequently merely by chance. Therefore, you could conclude, if you found it in a matrix from War and Peace, that it was probably encoded by coincidence.

However, if you found a large word or even a sentence encoded in a Bible matrix, then through the application of statistical analysis, if its odds of occurring by chance were large enough, you could conclude that the word, phrase or sentence was probably encoded by design. That would be especially true if it was encoded in close proximity to other words that all related to a theme.

The Bible code report above lists the terms found, at what skip, and then gives each term’s r-value in all of scripture, and it’s r-value in the matrix. The r-value is a statistical term for the odds at which that term appeared. For example the first term has an r-value of 8.278. This means the odds that this term occurred at random is 10 to the 8.278 power to one, or by calculating it we find the odds as 189,670,592 to one. You find the odds for all the terms occurring in the matrix by adding together all the in matrix r values of the terms, except for the first term which you use the straight r value for the entire search text, and then raising 10 to the power equal to the sum of the r values.

Thus for the matrix above; the combined r-value is 12.240, which yields odds of about 1.7 trillion to one. Many consider that a matrix in the Hebrew text must have odds greater than 10 to the 7th power to be considered to be beyond randomness. Thus we could conclude that the matrix above was by design and not chance.

Thus if the terms were not encoded by coincidence that leaves us with two other choices, they were either encoded by God, satan or as some claim aliens. Knowing that God wrote the scriptures by inspiration through holy men and He preserved His word to this day, there is but one conclusion; that God put them there.

To conclude that satan put them there would infer that God’s word has not been preserved to this day, and that the Bible has been changed by copiers and the codes were added by them. When you consider the complexity of the codes this hypothesis becomes even more implausible, for the Bible codes are so complex that it would take the use of a super computer to create them. Aliens did not write the codes either.

Aliens are merely demons. Thus, we conclude that valid beyond chance Bible codes are from God. Some attribute Daniel’s statement in Dan. 12:9; “And he said, go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” As meaning that God closed up and sealed information about the end times by use of the Bible codes.

Now that we have logically and scripturally concluded that God was the author of the Bible codes we will now consider the purpose for the Bible codes. I believe that the main purpose of the Bible codes is to scientifically prove to a scientifically skeptical world that the Bible is God’s Word. The complexity and odds of many Bible codes that have been found thus far to date by virtue of their statistical significance offer irrefutable proof that only God could have written the Bible and that the Bible is God’s Word.

For in order to create the codes one had to possess an extremely high intelligence surpassing the ability of any computer, and one also had to possess a perfect knowledge of the future. The only one who possesses those attributes is God Himself. Thus, if one analytically evaluates the Bible codes, and is honest with himself, and the facts, he will have no other choice but to conclude the Bible is God’s word. In fact several people in the scientific community have become Christians as a result of the Bible codes phenomena.

In my experience many Christians have categorically rejected the Bible codes as heresy or folly without examining the facts. I feel that this is inappropriate. One should always examine the facts before making a judgment. For if the Bible codes are truly of God then those who reject them will in effect be guilty of rejecting a part of the knowledge of God.

Ok, so that is the background information about Bible codes. Now let me present a Bible code that I found in the KJV version of the Bible. Now, let me start off by saying that many scholars believe that the Hebrew Bible contains Bible codes, but whether or not the KJV translation or any translation for that matter, contains valid Bible codes is controversial.

So, with all of that in mind here is the KJV Rapture Bible code.




As you can see the main term is; Six Seal. Here is a list of the other words and phrases surrounding the main term.
Main Term: Six Seal


Day of Christ*

The Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ *

Glorious appearing of the great God *


Of blood*


We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds*

Translated into the kingdom of His dear Son*




Wicked men*


Be saved O safe

(* surface text)


Put all those terms together, and what is the message of this Bible code? That the saints will be taken at the rapture which occurs at the Day of Christ/Day of the Lord event after the sixth seal is opened and the moon is turned to blood.—surprise, surprise, surprise, this Bible code says that the rapture does not occur until after the Sixth seal is opened. How about that?

The question now remains; is this Bible code by coincidence or is it from God? Let’s take a look at the odds to see if the phrases and words that formed the message are just random coincidence, or can be considered as a message from God? If it is just coincidental then it would mean nothing, if from God then it is a message we need to pay heed to, lest we are caught unawares.



The r-value of statistically significant terms in this matrix not including the surface text is 8.079, which yields odds of approximately 120 million to one. If you take into consideration other aspects of this matrix the odds of the matrix would increase. For example the entire matrix only includes 3431 letters, which is approximately ½% of the 739,167 letters in the KJV New Testament. Thus the matrix is a relatively small section of scripture.

And in this relatively small matrix the term “Six Seal,” which is only encoded 4 times in the KJV New Testament, appears with 6 sentences or long phrases of definitely related surface text, such as “Hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” “We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,” “The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,” “Day of Christ” “Glorious appearing of the great God.” “The Lord delivered me.” So I believe these occurrences add to the odds.

Not only is the related surface text statistically significant but the words “saints” and “taken” are only encoded once in this matrix and they cross each other and the surface text of “We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds.”




Further to the right, next to and touching “Saints” and crossing “taken,” is the encoded word “left,” which also occurs right below the surface text “wicked men.” The phrase “wicked men” only occurs 2 times in the KJV NT and appears in this small matrix very close to “left.” All 4 of these terms occurring in close proximity to each other are also statistically significant and add to the odds. Saints taken and wicked men are left—that’s a good description of the rapture.

The other significant cluster of terms is “of blood” which occurs 16 times in the KJV NT and appears in this matrix. The phrase “of blood” also crosses the encoded term “moon,” which is almost parallel to the term “sign.” All 3 occur in a 7 x 28 box, which again add to the odds and refer to the sign of the blood moon that occurs at the sixth seal.



All of these statistically significant events increase the odds of this matrix making it less likely to be by chance. I do not have a formula for assigning odds to these occurrences, but if we conservatively assigned odds of 10 to 1 for each event, it would increase the odds of this matrix to approximately a trillion to one.


Are the odds high enough for us to say that this matrix was by design and not chance? I believe so. But you know what? It really doesn’t matter what this Bible Code says, because our only source for doctrine is God’s Holy Word; we are never to use experiences and or other spiritual phenomena such as the Bible codes to formulate doctrine.

That being said it is God’s Holy Word that tells us clearly that the rapture will not occur until after the Sixth seal is opened. You see, God tells us that the rapture occurs during the Day of the Lord.

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 2 Thes 2:1,2

God also tells us that the moon is turned to blood before the Day of the Lord begins.

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: Acts 2:20

And when is the moon turned to blood? At the Sixth Seal.

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; Rev 6:12

Therefore, scripture demands that you accept the fact that the Day of the Lord and rapture must occur after the sixth seal is opened. This Bible code whether by coincidence or design serves to confirm that fact.

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36

      Only a complete moron would think the bible hasn’t been altered many times and in many ways. There is endless proof of it.

      Why would Jesus instruct His disciples, or anyone to watch for something that comes immediately after the sixth seal? And how would that time catch us unaware after the sixth and the previous scrolls have been unsealed? Jesus likened the time to the days of Noah, which happened to be before the destruction, which did not occur until all God’s people were safe in the Ark. The day of the Lord is a terrible time time of destruction that catches the whole world by surprise, except for the body of Christ which is removed prior to that. Six opened seals later, the day of the Lord would be no surprise.

      Matt 24:36-44 WEB

      36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

      42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and…
