BIRTH OF ISHMAEL - HOW WILD IS HE?
HIstory shows what a wild man he was - Ditto for the Torah Code (Posted 2/18/2012, updated 3/8/2017)
It seems that every day the news headlines are about Muslims killing Muslims and everyone else (see Korans Burned). Many people point to the prediction of this sort of behavior in Genesis 16:12. There translations like the English Revised Version read, “And he shall be as a wild-ass among men; his hand shall be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” However in reality, while the word WILD is in the Hebrew open text, the word for ASS/DONKEY is not. The American King James Version leaves it out, only mentioning a wild man. The Torah Code, however, foresees the translation controversy. I took the phrase “And he shall be as a wild-ass” and changed it from future to present tense, then searched the Code for that. The 10-letter phrase AND HE IS A WILD MAN is encoded and shown as the axis term below. Crossing it in the open text at its last letter (mem) is the promise that God made to Abraham about the birth of Ishmael - AND ALSO THE SON OF THE BONDSWOMAN A NATION WILL I MAKE. At an ELS and sharing the last letter with AND HE IS A WILD MAN is ISHMAEL and ASS/DONKEY. The matrix is 666 letters in area. Aware of the significance of that number in Christian theology (Revelation 13:18), I sought the a-priori word BEAST and found it in the open text. Finally, with so many people being killed by descendents of Ishmael, we should not overlook the question that crosses the axis term - SHALL WE ALL DIE?
