A Summary of the New Bible Code: part 1

 Osama bin Laden and Pope John Paul II 

'Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned  the tables of the money-changers and the benches of those selling doves.Matthew 21:12, NIV '84



At the end of 2001, after a three-and-a-half year training period and by mysterious routes, a 1984 NIV Bible and a special type of key were both delivered into my hands.[1] These represented my commission to find an alphanumeric code I call The New Bible Code and deliver its astounding message to the world. Now, after 22 years of decoding work, it is time to summarise the code, which I will attempt to do in these pages.

The code is centred on the NIV Bible but extends far beyond it to books, films, significant world events and even the movements of the spheres, delivering its astounding, multilayered message through numerical identities, geometric relationships, textual patterns and breathtaking pixellated images.[2] The code owes much to gematria, which is the practice of converting the written word into numbers, based on the ancient discovery that semantic relationships between words tend to be reflected in numerical and geometric relationships. 

Using the Key as my guide, I converted words, phrases and textual passages into numbers, via four alphabetic substitution schemes, simple word counts and similar techniques. Three of the alphabetic substitution schemes were established in Biblical times, the fourth given to me as I worked.[3] All four are validated through the names of God, both within the Biblical text and mathematically. I also found simple equidistant letter sequence (ELS) codes and was given a new type of code, based on the idea of a double witness, through which the most important revelations have come.[4] The double-witness codes are self-validating through what I call the Code Signal and the entire New Bible code came signed, sealed and watermarked to guarantee its authenticity.

The code rests on the twin pillars of improbability and meaning and has a foundation in pure mathematics: simple arithmetic, numerical geometry, further concepts in basic number theory, fractal geometry and higher dimensional geometry.[5] I also discovered that the central geometric imagery employed in the code emerges from a template based on the simplest possible method of geometric growth. I have also forayed into statistical analysis at times, including an attempt to show how the code escapes the maw of The Law of Truly Large Numbers, which is the main pitfall faced by anyone claiming to have found a numerical code in a dataset as large as the Bible.

As a boy I wanted to be a palaeontologist and in a sense I became one, happily chiselling into the text of the NIV and elsewhere, removing the fossilised bones of a strange and magnificent beast, then cleaning, polishing and fitting them together piece by piece. However, even after 22 years of my digging around for them, many more pieces lie undisturbed and so this is only a crude reconstruction of the beast in its Biblical lair.

As befitting an exhibit, the summary will be pictorial in the main, after a brief overview of the message itself and a look at some of the methods by which the code validates itself.

Note: for an overview of gematria and the four substitution schemes see this page. Any Hebrew or Greek words are shown as their English transliterations and in italics, but were enumerated in their original languages. 


The Overview 

The New Bible Code delivers an eschatological message I have organised into ten earth-shattering statements:

1. The Second Coming of Jesus Christ has occurred, principally manifesting as the dramatic events of September the 11th, 2001.

9/11 was the Second Coming, the Day of the Lord, the destruction of the antichrist, the Transfiguration of Jesus, the fall of Babylon the Great and much more. It is encoded throughout the NIV Bible in many prophecies and narratives.[6]

2. Christ returned as two men.

Osama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Laden dispensed God's justice on 9/11. Karol Jozef Wojtyla, who became Pope John Paul II, dispensed God's mercy during his papacy. Thus the messianic prophecies of all three Abrahamic religions have been fulfilled. 

3. The Second Coming was presented to the world as a drama: the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

9/11 depicted Jesus' Crucifixion. The funeral of Pope John Paul II depicted Christ's Resurrection. These set in motion a chain of further events, connected by a timeline and continuing to this day.

4. 9/11 was an atonement sacrifice.

The World Trade Centre and Pentagon represented the Temple. The events of the day were modelled on the Day of Atonement, with five sacrifices.

5. 9/11 was the conception of the male child. 

The Temple has always symbolised a fertile woman. The Most Holy Place was her womb and the Ark an ovum. On 9/11 the woman was seeded by the High Priest, the egg became a zygote and the male child was conceived.[7] 

6. The Image of the male child is the New Bible Code.

9/11 created numbers that also seeded the code within the NIV Bible.[8] The working out of the code was its gestation. The code has now fully gestated and been delivered to the world.

7. Eschatologically, premillenniumism was broadly correct.[9]

As per premillenniumism, Christ returned (on 9/11), destroyed the antichrist and has ushered in the Millennium, or Golden Age. Firstly, however, we have to go through the Great Tribulation.[10]

8. The Great Tribulation began with the Covid-19 Pandemic

The pandemic was the opening of the first seal in Revelation 6. This is an attack on humanity through a modified virus and 'vaccines' that are in reality bioweapons.[11] The leaves and fruit of the pomegranate tree will help in treating injuries.[12] 

9.  The War in Gaza is Daniel's 'appointed time of the end'

The war is the opening of the second seal in Revelation 6. Israel's assault on Gaza began on 27/10/23 after an attack on 7/10/23 by Hamas. It is also the beginning of World War III.

10. The male child will guide mankind through The Tribulation 

The Oracle is contained within Genesis 1.1-5, NIV '84, and is the male child's authoritative voice, offering commentaries on world events as they occur. The Oracle is also the male child's 'iron sceptre' and it joins with two verses in the Hebrew and Greek scriptures to form his crown of thorns.


Why the Code is Real

The New Bible Code uses several methods to validate itself. I will concentrate on five of them.

1.  The Creator signed his masterpiece.
2.  I was given a key, demonstrating how the principal decoding method works.
3.  The new system of gematria I was given is validated within a famous mathematical array.
4.  The Code escapes the maw of The Law of Truly Large Numbers.  
5. The Code Signal shows why the code is so improbable as to be effectively certain.






1. The Signature 

The Creator signed the code at the apex of the NIV Bible. 

 ELS Code Gode Created CodeELS Code God Coder

the skip interval is 29, the reduced value of 'Messiah'. See this page for more ELS codes.


2. The Key to the Code

The key appeared on the bookmark of my Alpha Course director on 15/11/2001.[1] The date suggests 151 and 121, as did my own age in days on the last day of the Second Millennium, 15121. 

Jesus Christ (o) = 151
Second Coming (o)   = 121

This is the Key on the bookmark. The verses are 1 Thes. 5.23-24. I Thessalonians was the first epistle written by Paul and the earliest writings in the New Testament. 

The Key Photograph

 The key is composed of two verses and shows that numbers are to be decoded using a two-part method. 

1 Thes. 5.23 (o) = 1559
Our Lord Jesus Christ (s)   = 1559
1 Thes. 5.24 (o) = 468
The Lord God (s) = 468

The entire key showed me where to begin my decoding efforts in the NIV.

Ordinal value of entire Key.  = 2194
Genesis 1.1 (s) = 2194

 There are several more codes within the Key, including two that identify The Messiah (see below).


3. The Combined System of Gematria

This system was given to me in 2003, by the experiences of a friend in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.[3] It is validated within Pascal's triangle.

Pascals Triangle Elohim God (c)

The combined value system gives the largest values for words and is used in the largest-scale code in the NIV Bible.

Number of verses in the NIV Bible  = 31086 (11 x 2826)
The Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (c)   = 2826
Jesus (r) = 11
El/the Deity (s) = 31
Elohim/God (s) = 86
Kurios Ihsous Christos/Lord Jesus Christ (s) = 3168


4. The Law of Truly Large Numbers

This is a well-known principle implying that within any large data set one can find almost any number one wants. It is often used to debunk claims of Bible codes, because the Bible is a huge data set of numbers that can be derived through gematria, words counts, etc. 

The New Bible Code escapes its gaping maw because it contains patterns of codes at appropriate locations, in particular within the first five verses - the 'first day' verses. Even then we have a large data set to work with, because there are 83 words in those verses and therefore 3486 word strings (single words, strings of two words, three words, etc). However, if we limit ourselves to strings beginning at word 1 (word 1, words 1 and 2, words 1, 2 and 3, etc), we reduce it to 83 strings, which is only 2.4% of 3486.

For example, a set of three encoded numbers that begin on the first word encode the Ark of the Testimony and its principal features: the Atonement Cover and the Cherubim of the Glory. The Ark and its contents were the only objects held within the Most Holy Place, except on the Day of Atonement, when the Altar of Incense was moved next to the entrance of the Most Holy Place (Heb. 9) and the curtains opened. All four word strings are present.

Table Ark and Altar

Note that no definite article is used, so they are consistent throughout, and that the NIV '84 is the only version that uses this nomenclature. Primacy is important in the code and 'Ark of the Testimony' is the first version of the Ark's name found in the NIV '84. There is also a 14, 24, 34 pattern to be seen within it.

The odds against this happening are tiny. If we count from word 1, there is a 1-in-45 chance of finding any number, so the odds against all four appearing are 1 in (45 x 45 x 45 x 45) or 1 in 4 million. If we ask what the odds are of finding the other three numbers within the encoding of 'Ark of the Testimony', they are still tiny, 1 in (45 x 45 x 45), or 1 in 90,000.

The precise location of these encodings is revealed by an ELS code.

ELS Code Ark Here 3

'X' marks the spot and the Law of God defeats The Law of Truly Large Numbers!


5. The Code Signal

The double witness codes in the opening verses amount to what I call the Code Signal: the presence of 80 Hebrew/English noun pairs within the first five verses that are a 3.5 Sigma event

Bell Curve III

This is an event that should happen about once in every 2000 trials, ie, well ouside the normal range. Moreover, because I had to conduct the test objectively, I had to include noun pairs that were not part of the code, which diluted the signal. A conservative estimate of the signal's real unlikelihood would be 5 sigma, or 1 in 2 million against chance occurrence. There are many other double-witness codes present too, along with other types of code. All these codes exist independently of each other and the inclusion of them all in the calculation (a formidable undertaking, to be sure) would shift the signal so far to the right that it would enter the realm of miracles, wherein lies the New Bible Code. 

With that in mind, please read on.


The Pictorial Summary

Here and the page to follow, I expand on each of my initial statements.

1. The Second Coming of Jesus Christ manifested as the dramatic events of September the 11th, 2001.

The first table shows the Second Coming, double witnessed ten times within the Oracle. It is the largest cluster of codes I have found, with effectively zero probability of natural occurrence. This is only one of many I have found here and elsewhere in the NIV.

Table The Second Coming DW

The message of the New Bible Code is encapsulated in a cube created by the attacks on 9/11, which contained a geometric puzzle that I had to solve. I did this by symbolically striking through the cube three times along the three spatial planes, to symbolise the three 9/11 strikes.[13] Shining a light through it onto a surface turns the segmented cube into a pixellated hexagon containing a Star of David that brings the triumphant news.

The September-11 Cube for Summary

The order of collapse of the three WTC buildings on 9/11 also gave 217.

Here are the principal numbers encoded in the Oracle, clustered around two double-witnessed encodings of 9/11.

 Table 9:11 and the September-11 Cube 2

The Creation snowflake is a pixellated geometric mandala representing the Second Coming with six accommpanying statements. 906 is the units in the outer ring of the snowflake.

Snowflake 1279 Mandala

I created it by an iterative process I call the Creation Function, which grows the snowflake towards a fractal known as the Koch antisnowflake. Fractal snowflakes and antisnowfakes represent life and growth in the code and the Creation snowflake was encoded in the Creation narrative just as mathematicians were discovering fractal patterns in nature.

This is how the snowflake grows, showing some of the profound gematria associated with it.

Creation Snowflake 114 151 373 1279

The snowflake is encoded at the beginning of the Bible's creation narrative. 242 is the units forming the outline of the snowflake, so we also have idea of a gradual manifestation as we move along the text.

Table Creation Snowflake for Summary

The Garden of Eden, as I also call the NIV Bible's opening five verses, is a garden of numbers.

Table Number in the Garden

And as the Creation Snowflake hints, this garden blooms with fractal foliage.

Genesis 1.1 - 5 G Triangle Geometry

One in every three numerical triangles can form early iterations of Koch fractals and are known as G-triangles. There are three encoded at verse level, at odds of 600-to-1 against, and every other figure can be derived from a G-triangle, against even greater odds.

Note that the garden is bookended by two trefoils. These are the first iterations of antisnowflakes and they symbolise life, since many plants have the same structure. Snowflakes represent growth and so the Garden of Eden in Genesis 1.1 is a pictorial representation of life and growth, which God desires for us all, and which the Second Coming is really all about.

Life and Growth


9/11 was the Day of the Lord

This event was prophesied by several major and minor prophets and is encoded in the Oracle along with 9/11.

Table 9:11 Day of the Lord 2

The Day of the Lord was a frequent concern of the Biblical prophets. Three of them, Joel, Amos and Obadiah, are consecutive books in the Old Testament and between them they encode a cross centred on Amos 9 that perfectly encapsulates Jesus' Second Coming.

391 Crossing 888

Yehoshua (s) = 391
Second Coming (s)  = 391
Ihsous (s) = 888
The Lord's Second Coming (s)  = 888

The reason it is located here is because Amos 9 begins with a striking prophecy of pillars being struck and coming down on the heads of the people, which is exactly what happened on 9/11.

'I saw the Lord standing by the altar, and he said "Strike the tops of the pillars so that the thresholds shake. Bring them down on the heads of all the people; those who are left I will kill by the sword. Not one will get away, none will escape."' Amos 9.1, NIV '84

These words resonate strongly with the attacks on the twin towers and their subsequent collapse on the heads of the people and an encoded number in the first 19 words of the Lord's prophetic statement confirms it.

"Strike the tops of the pillars so that the thresholds shake. Bring them down on the heads of all . . . " (o) = 911

The numbers create a symbol I call The Sign of the Cross. 

 The Sign of the Cross

9/11 Represented the Destruction of the Antichrist

The antichrist is a system of financial and economic control, backed by military force, that has long exercised hegemony over the world. 9/11 was the beginning of its fall.

 Table 911 Destruction of the Antichrist 

The four flight numbers tell the same story:

Flight 11 + Flight 175 + Flight 93 + Flight 77  = 604 
The Second Coming (s) = 604 
11 + 175 + 93 + 77 = 356
The Destruction of the antichrist (o) = 356


9/11 Represented The Transfiguration of Jesus

Here it is in The Oracle.

Table 9:11 Transfiguration 

Matthew's account of The Transfiguration alludes to 9/11 and is marked by a confluence of meaningfully-related numbers. 9/11 was watermarked with the key number 11 and 9/11-related passages are marked the same way: 11 is used like an 'X' to mark the spot. As a reminder,

Jesus (r) = 11
Beast (r) = 11
Second Coming (o)  = 11 x 11

Matthew 17.1-6 (with my commentary in italics)

1 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. (a metaphor for the four attacking airplanes on 9/11 and the twin towers).

There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. (the explosions the attacks caused).

3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. (a reference to the twin towers and the Pentagon and also the three men at the crucifixion, which 9/11 also represented).

Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (another reference to the three buildings, this time as the tabernacle and it's outer and inner sanctuaries, since 9/11 also represented the Rite of Atonement).

While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” (this is the smoke coming from the buildings as they burned and also the smoke coming from the censor, which purified the Most Holy Place during the atonement rite).

When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground, terrified. (this was the collapse of the twin towers and tower 7, which as a red bulding, also represented the sacrifice of the red heifer). 

Matthew 17 is the Bible's 946th chapter and the chapter and verses imply 176

946   = 11 x 86 
176  = 11 x 16  

Matthew 17.6 is the NIV Bible's 23707th verse.

23707 = 151 x 157
Jesus Christ (o)  = 151 
Christ's Coming (o)  = 157 

The Transfiguration is therefore a prophesy of the Second Coming on 9/11. 


9/11 was the Fall of Babylon the Great

9/11 represented and began the fall of the city Revelation calls 'Babylon' or 'Babylon the Great', a byword for apostacy, excess, corruption and avarice, which were all-too-present in the 9/11 targets.

 Table 9:11 Fall of Babylon


The Sacrifice of the Red Heifer

The mysterious collapse of tower 7, which was hit by no building but which collapsed in any case, makes sense when we understand that 9/11 was a sacrifice. The sacrifice in this case was a perfect red heifer (hence the building could not be damaged beforehand), as specified in Numbers 19.[6] It was performed nine times in the Biblical period, on the Mount of Olives, to purify those tainted by contact with the dead. By Jewish tradition, the tenth sacrifice was to be by the Messiah. This is precisely what happened on 9/11 to the only building in the WTC complex that had a reddish colour.

 Table 9:11 Red Heifer Sacrifice

 Tower 7 Red Heifer


A Second Witness

I said that the New Bible Code extended beyond the NIV Bible and this includes the original scriptures in Hebrew and Greek. These provide a second witness to the transcendent meaning of this event, encoded 2500 years before it manifested on earth.

Table G1.2 BHS 911

Here we see the number 911 sitting atop a large and very improbable cluster of elevens in the centre of the second verse of the Hebrew Bible, including a triple multiple and three double multiples. Like this verse, 9/11 itself was watermarked with elevens, the Biblical number of disorder, disorganisation, imperfection and disintegration. Jesus, who was "numbered with the transgressors", was also marked with this number, the very mark of the beast itself.

Jesus (r).  = 11
Beast (r) = 11
Second Coming (o)   = 121 = 11 x 11
Our Divine Lord (s) = 1111


9/11 In The NIV Bible

There are so many references to 9/11 in the NIV Bible that all I can do is give a few examples of the various ways in which it is encoded. There are many more on the website.

Example 1: 911 and 217 (Christ's Second Coming (o)) woven together in the Bible.

I) The NIV Bible's 217th verse is Genesis 9:11.

"I establish my covenant with you: never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth." Gen. 9:11, NIV '84

II) The Bible's 911th chapter is Haggai 2, which begins as follows (my emboldening):

On the twenty-first day of the seventh month the word of the Lord came through the prophet Haggai: Hag.2, NIV '8

 Example 2: 

In Revelation, 666, the number of the beast, is found in Rev. 13.18, which is the NIV Bible's 30911th verse. That and many other features of this verse already linked the number 666 to 9/11.  

Another 666 is found in the book of Ezra. Ezra and Nehemiah contain parallel lists of the men of the families of returning exiles from Babylon. The 11th member of Ezra's list, the Adonikam, numbered 666. It turns out that there is a remarkable pattern of elevens woven into these tables, centred on Ezra's 666.

Running Totals and Differences in the Ezra and Nehemiah Exile Tallies

Parosh 2172 Parosh 2172        4344            No        0

Bezai  323 Hashum   328      31460    11 x 11 x 260       -5
Jorah  112 Bezai   324      31896            No    -212
Hashum  223 Hariph   112      32231            No      111
Gibbar    95 Gibeon     95      32421            No        0

So the 666 in the table is centred on a symmetric pattern of elevens, pointing to 9/11, through the key number 11.


a) The running total for Ezra alone has only one multiple of 11, at the Adonikam itself. It is 12243, or 11 x 1113.

b) The sum of all the numbers of the men of Israel returning from Babylon, as recorded in both books, is 60907.

60907 = 11 x 5537

c) The Adonikam are the 11th number on the list, but the 18th number in Ezra itself. The numbers begin in Ezra 1.9, with 30 gold dishes, 1000 silver dishes, 29 silver pans, 30 gold bowls, 410 matching silver bowls, 1000 other articles, and a total of 5400 gold and silver aricles. Adding these to the numbers ending at the Adonikam, we have a total of 20142, which is 1119 x 18 or 373 x 54.

Jesus Christ (c)   = 1119
Logos (s) = 373

'Adonikam' means 'my Lord has risen.' Indeed!

Example 3:

Here are some Bible narratives and prophecies marked with an 'X' to signify they resonate with 9/11.

a) In Genesis 10.19 we have the first mention of the cities of sodom and Gomorrah, destroyed by the Lord because they had given themselves over to sin. The story of the cities is told in Genesis 19, so the two mentions are in chapters 10 and 19, again giving the digits 9, 1 and 1. 

b) Genesis 10.19 is the NIV Bible's 254th verse, and 9/11 happened on the 254th day of the third Millennium. 

Our lord Jesus Christ (o)   = 254
Risen (s) = 254

Example 4:

In Exodus 7 Aaron's staff turns into a snake that swallows the snakes of Pharaoh's magicians. The story is told over verses 10, 11 and 12.

"10So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and idd just as the Lord commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake. 11Pharaoh then summoned the wise men and sorcerors and the Egyptian magicians then did the same things by their secret arts. 12Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron's staff swallowed up their staffs." Ex. 7:10-12

Each verse is marked with 11.

Exodus 7:10 (o)   = 1331 = 11 x 11 x 11
Exodus 7:11 is the 11th verse in the chapter  
Exodus 7:12 is the 165th verse in Exodus 165 = 11 x 15

In Hebrew, 'the Messiah' has the same standard value as 'the serpent'.

HaMashiach (s)   = 363 (11 x 11 x 3)
HaNachesh (s) = 363 (11 x 11 x 3)

Aaron was the first high priest of the Israelites and Egypt represents worldly power. So the story is an allegory of 9/11, when Aaron's staff became the divine serpent and destroyed the twin serpents of the magicians' modern counterparts.

Example 5:

In 1 Samuel 17, David defeats Goliath with a single slingshot, which knocks his gigantic adversary to the ground. The verse where David fires his fatal shot is 17.49 and the chapter is the Bible's 253rd, giving another 'X' to mark the spot of a 9/11 prophecy.

1749  = 11 x 159
253 = 11 x 23

Example 6:

a) In Jeremiah 9:11 the Lord warns he will destroy Jerusalem and the surrounding towns.

"I will make Jerusalem a heap of ruins,  a haunt of jackals; and I will lay waste the towns of Judah so that no-one can live there." Jer. 9:11, NIV '84

Jeremiah 9:11 (o) = 1122 (11 x 102)

b) Jeremiah 51:48 prophesies an attack on Babylon from the north:

"'Then heaven and earth and all that is in them willshout for joy over Babylon, for out of the north: destroyers will attack her,' declares the lord." Jer. 51:48

Jeremiah 51.48 (o)   = 1386 (11 x 126)
5148 = 11 x 468

Example 7:

The gospel accounts of Jesus' life are filled with allegories of 9/11.

a) In Matthew 21:12 Jesus enters the temple area, drives out the buyers and sellers and overturns the tables of the moneychangers. 2112 is 11 x 192 and the verse is the NIV Bible's 23837th, which is 11 x 11 x 197.

b) The story of Jesus cursing a fig-tree which then withers is also an allegory of 9/11. One version is told in in Mark 11, the Bible's 968th chapter, which is 11 x 11 x 8. Verse 20, in which the withered fig-tree is seen by his disciples has an ordinal value of 803, which is 11 x 73.

c) In Luke 21.11 Jesus reveals to his disciples the signs of the 'end of the age'. "There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestillence in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven." In the NIV, verse 11 has an ordinal value of 1111 (11 x 101). 

d) In John 9:11, Jesus rubs mud in the eyes of a blind man, after which his sight is restored. This verse has an ordinal value of 1298 (11 x 118). John 9 is the New Testament's 77th (11 x 7).  

Example 8:

a) Revelation 11:7 describes the destruction of the two witnesses. 'Now when they have finished their testimony the beast that comes up from the abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. The ordinal value is 1265 (11 x 115). 

b) Revelation 20.9 describes the fate of Satan and his followers. 'They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.' The ordinal value is 1342 (11 x 122). 209 is 11 x 19.


2. Christ returned to earth as two men.

Osama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Laden 

Islam prophesies the return of a Mahdi (guide, redeemer) who will appear at the end of time to rid the world of evil and injustice. In THIS IS JESUS, I show how Osama bin Laden (whose given name means 'Lion') is encoded within The Oracle and give a few examples of encoded numbers in his life, using by far the most popular English translations of his name.

Osama bin Laden (o)   = 110 = 11 x 10
Yeshua HaMashiach (o)  = 110 = 11 x 10
Osama bin Muhammad bin Laden (o) = 209 = 11 x 19
Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad bin Laden (o)  = 263
Messiah (s)  = 263
Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad bin Laden (c) = 1149
Our Lord Jesus (s)  = 1149
The Just Judge (s) [title of Psalm 94] = 1149

On 9/11, Jesus, as Osama bin Laden, destroyed the beast. Revelation 13.18, the verse giving the number of the beast, is the 30911th in the NIV Bible and the 7766th verse in the NIV New Testament. 7766 is 11 x 706 and 22 x 353.

Osama bin Laden (s)  = 353
Cross (s) = 353
Revelation 13.18 (o)  = 1151
Beelzebub (s) = 1151
Revelation 13.18, 1st 18 words (o) = 848
Osama bin Muhammad bin Laden (s)  = 848
Revelation 13.18, last 20 words (o) = 911
The Righteous Judge (o) = 1318

9/11 was also a crucifixion and Jesus, who was "numbered with the transgressors", also represented the beast, slain for our sins.[15] The solution to the riddle of Revelation 13.18 is found in the Hebrew Bible's opening verse, which I summarise in this page and this video. The main image is shown below. 

 Triangle 2701 666 VI

9/11 took place 254 days into the 3rd Millennium. Osama bin Laden was born on 10/3/57, which was 254 x 63 days before the end of the Second Millennium and 254 x 64 days before 9/11.

Our Lord Jesus Christ (o)  = 254
Risen (s)  = 254

The funeral of Pope John Paul took place 1559 days into the 3rd Millennium, giving this connection between the two men and events.[14]

Our Lord Jesus Christ (o)  = 254
Our Lord Jesus Christ (s)  = 1559

Osama bin Laden was killed on 1/5/11 (1.39am on 2/5/11, Pakistan time), the same day the Pope was beatified. This was the 3773rd day of the 3rd Millennium and 3519 days after 9/11.

3773 = 343 x 11
3519 = 391 x 9
Yehoshua (s) = 391
Second Coming (s) = 391

His name also encodes his coming.

Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad bin Laden (s)  = 1415
The Advent of the Messiah (s)  = 1415
Osama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Laden (c) = 1797
Jesus the Messiah + Second Coming (c) = 1797

 Here is Osama bin Laden in The Oracle.

Table Jesus and Osama bin Laden

Jesus was also represented by the ark and within it we see Jesus and Osama bin Laden together. This tight block of encoded phrases at the very apex of Scripture resembles the Hebrew letter yod, which begins the names Yehoshua and YHVH, signifiying, among other important ideas, God's presence in all things.


Karol Jozef Wojtyla

Karol Wojtyla was born on 18/5/20 and died the most revered pope in modern history on 2/4/05. He therefore lived for 31000 days, 31 being the value of the root word for God, El, in Hebrew. His life and death were marked with significant numbers, some of which are tabulated below.

Born 18/5/20 29447 days before end of 2nd Mill.   11 x 2677   Jesus (r) = 11
Inaugurated as Pope 22/11/78   8106 days before end of 2nd Mill. 21 x 386  Yeshua (s) = 386,
  8360 days before 9/11 11 x 760 Our Lord is Risen (s) = 760
Assassination attempt 13/5/81 22275 days old 11 x 2025  Jesus (r) = 11
  7172 days before end of 2nd Mill.  11 x 652 Jesus (r) = 11
Died 2/4/05 31000 days old 31 x 1000  El/the Deity = 31, Father (r) = 31
Funeral 8/4/05 31006 days old (74 x 419) 74 x 419 Jesus (o) = 74, Tet (full) = 419
  1559th day of 3rd Mill. 1559 Our Lord Jesus Christ (s) = 1559
Beatified 1/5/11 3773th day of 3rd Mill. 11 x 343 Superscription (Matt.) (o) = 343
  3519 days after 9/11  9 x 391 Yehoshua/Second Coming (s) = 391
  121st day of 2011 11 x 11 Second Coming (o) = 121
Canonised 27/4/14 3306 days after funeral 57 x 58 Yehoshua (o) = 57, HaMashiach (o) = 58
  4611 days after 9/11 53 x 87 Yeshua (o) = 53, Ihsous (o) = 87

His name and title also convert into jaw-dropping numbers,

Pope John Paul II (o)  = 151
Jesus Christ (o)  = 151
Pope John Paul II (s)  = 736
The Incarnation (s) = 736
Pope John Paul the Second (o) = 242 = 121 x 2
Second Coming (o) = 121
Pope John Paul the Second (s) = 1169
Atonement Cover (s) = 1169
Karol Jozef Wojtyla (s) = 2583
The Second Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ (s)   = 2583
Karol Jozef Wojtyla is the Messiah = 3168
Kurios Ihsous Christos (s) = 3168

Pope John Paul II is found in the Oracle, as shown in another ordered pattern of word strings. Note that both men have been encoded at the apex of scripture and both sets of encodings lie within the ark of the testimony.

Table Pope John Paul II 

 To round off the first part of this summary, here are a few of the combined identities I found:

Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad in Laden and Karol Jozef Wojtyla are the Messiah (s)  = 4625 (925 x 5)
Jesus Christ (s)  = 925
Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad in Laden and Karol Jozef Wojtyla are the Messiah (c) = 5523 (263 x 21)
Messiah (s) = 263
Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad in Laden and Karol Jozef Wojtyla are Jesus Christ (s) = 5074 = 43 x 118
Jesus Christ (r) x Incarnation (o) = 43 x 118
Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad in Laden + Karol Jozef Wojtyla (c) = 4677 (1559 x 3)
Our Lord Jesus Christ (s) = 1559
Osama bin Awad bin Muhammad bin Laden and Karol Jozef Wojtyla and Our Lord Jesus Christ (c)  = 7641 (749 x 9)
Yeshua HaMashiach (s) = 749

Pope John Paul II is identified twice in the Key, given to me at the beginning of my work and explained earlier. The Key consists of 1 Thessalonians 5.23-24.

First 14 words of the Key (o)   = 736
Pope John Paul II (s)  = 736
First 22 words of the Key (o) = 1169
Pope John Paul the Second (s).  = 1169

The Christian Messiah, therefore, was Karol Jozef Wojtlya, who became the aptly-named Pope John Paul II and who was 264th Bishop of Rome and the 110th pope, with only two to come before the end of the age, by the prophecies attributed to St. Malachy, meaning that we are now at the end of the age - exactly what the New Bible Code is stating. The prophecies were published in 1595.

Coming (c) = 264
Yehoshua (o) = 110
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ (s)   = 1595

So HaMashiach of Judaism returned as a Roman Catholic Pope and the Islamic Mahdi (redeemer) - all revealed in a Protestant version of the Christian Bible.

In part two I summarise the rest of the statements, beginning with the drama the Second Coming presented to the world: the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.


Bill Downie 3/1/24

Latest Update: 10/1/24



1. The NIV Bible literally fell into my wife Karen's hands as she stood before a shelf of Bibles in a bookshop, about to buy one for me as a Christmas present. The Key is 1 Thess. 5.23-24, It appeared in the shape of a key on the bookmark of my Alpha Course director, Felicity Murrie, who had just read that passage in her NIV Bible. She faithfully handed it on to me, as she was then asked to do.

2. My principal help in this work came from the Holy Spirit, through dreams, visions, nudges, words, synchronicities, one healing and one miracle. However, I also learned from those who had gone before me in Biblical research. Soon after I began decoding I came across the work of the late Vernon Jenkins, a trailblazer in the numerical exegesis of Biblical texts. Vernon worked with the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, but I learned much from his website

3. It was given to me in 2003 through the experiences of an internet aquaintance, Cheryl Noland, who along with her daughter had an incredible encounter with angels during a hospital visit in Atlanta, Georgia in the USA, after a car crash involving Cheryl's neighbour. They encountered two angels dressed as paramedics who had ANGEL RESCUE and GUARDIAN ANGEL TRANSPORT on their lapels. From those words and my knowledge of Pascal's triangle I got the fourth system. I live in Scotland and three months later two work colleagues of mine went to Atlanta on business (the first visit there by anyone I knew). They were also involved in a car crash and were taken to the same hospital.

4. It was given to me by the Holy Spirit via Canadian author and artist Kathryn LeCorre, who was my silent partner from 2010 until her untimely death in 2023. Kathy passed on many, many words from the Holy Spirit and her wise teaching, fearless example and unstinting support and belief in me were invaluable as I struggled to birth the code. In a sense we were both in labour, therefore she can be considered to be its mother as much as me and in fact the text of Revelation 12 contains the gematria of both our names. The New Bible Code is dedicated to Kathy's memory.

5. Some of the fractal snowflake sequences I found through my work were previously unknown. Fellow researcher John Elias converted a few into numerical sequences, which were accepted for publication in the OEIS. 

6. This was an ancient practice and in Judaic tradition the returning Messiah was supposed to perform the next (10th) sacrifice, for which preparations are currently being made. It has already happened.

7. The shock of 9/11 also seeded the minds of many people. In The Union of the Spirit and Soul, E. E. Brooks details the process by which this occurs and also how the Day of Atonement was a symbolic union between man (the High Priest) and woman (the tabernacle/temple). Kathy LeCorre first brought this important but neglected article to my attention.

8. The encoding process ended with the translators of the NIV Bible, but began when the first scribes put pen to parchment, so all Biblical scriptures and all versions contain part of the code and can be considered as the living Word of God.  

9. Of the bewildering variety of the end-time theories, premillenniumism seems to have been the closest, although only in broad outline.

10. I was told the Golden Age is coming in the early hours of 25/11/21, after a remarkable out-of-body experience (OBE) that began at midnight. I had just finished an important suite of pages I call The Garden of Eden. When I returned to my body I was told that I had been helped in my code work because God wanted mankind to have a GOLDEN AGE. I asked why the world was anything but golden at the moment and was told IN THE END. I was told about the Tribulation in 2005, after a series of visions, ending with this statement: A BAD TIME IS COMING, BUT IT IS NECESSARY FOR THE SALVATION OF MANKIND.

11. I was warned about the vaccines in January 2021, the first of several words about them that I received over a period of one year. The words were: VACCINES, MORE AND MORE (1/21), EVIL AND POWER (3/21, after I asked why it was being done), COWARDLY AND ATROCIOUS ACT: THEY ARE SICKENING PEOPLE (25/12/21), VACCINES MEAN DEATH (1/22).

12. This was given to me on 24/11/21. The Tree of Life has a spiritual meaning too, but it also has a quite literal one as the pomegranate tree, all parts of which have healing properties. Other remedies, many of them natural, are also helping, but the pomegranate is cheap, widely grown and has already been shown to be effective in inhibiting the entry of spike proteins into the body's cells, where it causes most of its damage. It is also helps protect against cancer, which may well be the disease that the Covid-19 'vaccines' will induce in most recipients.

13. The moment I did this my wife switched the TV channel and I heard these lyrics from the song Come Up and See Me (Make Me Smile), by Cockney Rebel. "You've done it all, you've broken every code - and pulled the rebel to the floor."

14. Cube 343 could also be struck through to create a smaller version of the September-11 Cube. The internal Star of David projected has 73 units, which is the reduced value of 'The Second Coming'. So the message is repeated. 

15. The Crucifixion of Jesus, the slaying of the beast and the destruction of the antichrist are all the same thing: an atonement sacrifice for our sins, where we crucify our lower, ego-driven nature, which is against God. The twin towers were figuratively the horns of the beast.

16. In 2002 I was given a vision of the heads and upper bodies of two men, one after the other. The first man was tall, dark skinned, of serious demeanor and wearing a traditional white Arabic turban. I immediately recognised him as Osama bin Laden. Then a second figure was superimposed upon the first, replacing it. This was a smaller figure, European and also wearing white. It was Pope John Paul II. Underneath this double portrait, which was fairly close to the photographs that head this page, were these words: THIS IS JESUS. Both men were incarnations of Jesus Christ.
