Original Bible FAQ

We discovered that the original Bible (Hebrew) was created by GOD, since it is encoded with messaging to humanity on 4 different levels. The original Bible has remained unaltered: 1,197,000 million Hebrew letters, 305,490 words, 23,206 verses, 929 chapters, in 39 books. Each of the 22 Hebrew letters is coded with two unique numbers between 1 and 510. As a result, each word or verse, is coded with meaning. The original Bible is the global source for 724 human-mistranslated books that lack the code, such as KJV.
Each of the 22 Biblical Hebrew letters is coded with two unique numbers between 1 to 510. Hence, each word in the original Bible is coded with a numerical value and a meaning. The patented code2GOD system comprises 32 mathematical methods that decode GOD’s messaging to humanity from the original Bible. It was invented by Don Karl Juravin. The findings provide answers to life’s most sought-after questions such as: “What is our purpose in life?”, “What is after death?” or, “How to maximize life?”

We have scientifically determined that words and verses in the original Bible are coded with social and scientific information that are more advanced than today’s science. As such, it can’t be a document created by a mere human in a cave. Therefore, the original Bible was created by a super-intelligent entity named in the original Bible as “GOD אלהים” and “YHWH יהוה” (known as Lord). Only the “GOD” entity can describe the genesis period with the encoded mathematical formulas.

Logically, believers who think that the original Bible was created by humans, assembled over time, are praying on a history book and guiding their lives based on an archeology book. Logically, if you believe that GOD created the universe, GOD can also make the Bible appear without the need for “inspiring human writers” to write it.

While the original Bible was created by GOD and is encoded with messaging to humanity on four different levels, any human translation becomes merely a “story of the Bible” written based on a human understanding and interpretation of the complex, coded original Hebrew Bible. Since only the Hebrew letters, words, and parables are embedded with the code, any translation will lose any divine messaging and become merely a story, as understood by a mere human.

Can a human interpretation, or mistranslated book, like KJV, be really holy? Is that the Word Of GOD or the word of another man?

GOD (Elohim אלהים coded 86) is not necessarily the same as Lord (YHWH יהוה coded 26). While GOD is a classification (like saying human, animal, or plant), YHWH is the name of the entity. The YHWH name is the combination of the words: past (היה), present (הווה), and future (יהיה).
We can scientifically determine, with the highest certainty, that YHWH is the creator of:

  • The 22 Hebrew letters
  • The Hebrew language, and
  • The original Bible

It is highly likely that YHWH brought into existence earth and life forms. It is likely that YHWH was brought the universe into existence. There is also a high probability that GOD is directly or indirectly, responsible for our daily lives, events, and what humans consider to be random, unknown, uncertain, or simply, luck.
We are researching the scientific difference between GOD and YHWH. For now, we assume the term “GOD,” which can be anything and everything, from a particle to the entire nature, or the universe.

Nahum Book FAQ

Academic studies (Britannica) of the translated book of Nahum. Doesn’t replace the scientific discoveries of code2GOD.

Book of Nahum, the 7th of 12 Old Testament books that bear the names of the Minor Prophets. The title identifies the book as an “oracle concerning Nineveh” and attributes it to the “vision of Nahum of Elkosh.”

The fall of Nineveh, the capital of the Assyrian Empire, provided the occasion for this prophetic oracle. The mighty Assyrian Empire, which had long been a threat to the smaller nations of the ancient Middle East, was a particular menace to the Israelite people.

Its decline, therefore, in the face of the Neo-Babylonian power of the Medes and the Chaldeans and its final collapse in the destruction of Nineveh gave the prophet Nahum cause for extolling these events, which, he announced, occurred because Assyria’s policies were not in accord with God’s will.

The book contains many types of material, among which are an acrostic hymn, oracles of judgment, satire, a curse, and funeral laments, all of which were brought together and related to the fall of Nineveh.

Assyria was a major ancient Mesopotamian civilization of the Assyrians, which existed as a city-state controlling regional territories, then to a territorial state, and eventually an empire.

Assur, the first Assyrian capital, centered in the Assyrian heartland in northern Mesopotamia, Assyrian power fluctuated over time. The city underwent several periods of power together with several foreign rule or domination before Assyria rose under Ashur-uballit I, as the Middle Assyrian Empire.

In the Middle and Neo-Assyrian periods Assyria was one of the two major Mesopotamian kingdoms, alongside Babylonia in the south, and at times became the dominant power in the ancient Near East. Assyria was at its strongest in the Neo-Assyrian period, when the Assyrian army was the strongest military power in the world and the Assyrians ruled the largest empire then yet assembled in world history.

The Assyrian Empire fell later, conquered by a coalition of the Babylonians, Chaldeans, Medes, and Scythians, who had lived under the Assyrian rule for centuries. Though the core urban territory of Assyria was extensively devastated in the Medo-Babylonian conquest of the Assyrian Empire and the succeeding Neo-Babylonian Empire invested little resources in rebuilding it, ancient Assyrian culture and traditions continued to survive for centuries.

Assyria experienced a recovery under the Seleucid and Parthian empires, though declined again under the Sasanian Empire, which sacked numerous cities and semi-independent Assyrian territories in the region, including Assur itself.

Nahum 1:2-3 – “The LORD is a jealous and avenging God; the LORD takes vengeance and is filled with wrath. The LORD takes vengeance on his foes and vents his wrath against his enemies. The LORD is slow to anger but great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet.”

Nahum 1:7 – “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.”

Nahum 1:14-15 – “The LORD has given a command concerning you, Nineveh: ‘You will have no descendants to bear your name. Look, there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news, who proclaims peace!” See also Isaiah 52:7 and Romans 10:15.

Nahum 2:13 – “’Behold I am against you,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

Nahum 3:19 – “Nothing can heal your wound; your injury is fatal. Everyone who hears the news about you claps his hands at your fall, for who has not felt your endless cruelty?”

Nahum 1:15 predicts a future time of peace, stating, “Look, there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news, who proclaims peace! . . . No more will the wicked invade (Judah).”

Nahum 1:1-8 introduces the oracle and highlights the majesty of God and His attributes. Verses 9-14 focus on God’s anger against Nineveh and His plans to afflict it.

Nahum 1:15 then looks back at the preceding verses and declares that the destruction of Nineveh by the Babylonians would be “good news” for Judah. Why? Nineveh was an enemy of Judah and the capital of the Assyrian Kingdom. The Assyrians had defeated the northern kingdom of Israel, destroying Samaria, its capital. They nearly conquered Jerusalem, the capital of Judah, and were widely known for their “endless cruelty” (Nahum 3:19), leading God to condemn Nineveh to destruction.

The last half of Nahum 1:15 says, “Celebrate your festivals, O Judah, and fulfill your vows. No more will the wicked invade you; they will be completely destroyed.” Nineveh’s defeat would result in the ability of Judah to continue its annual feasts and to fulfill its vows to God in Jerusalem at the temple.

In the New Testament, Paul quotes part of this verse in Romans 10:15 when he writes, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” This does not mean that Paul believed Nahum 1:15 was a prediction of the gospel message. Instead, he used this verse to connect the preaching of the gospel with the deliverance from sin provided by God’s salvation.

The fall of Nineveh: Nahum’s prophecy carries a particular warning to the Ninevites of coming events, although he is partly in favor of the destruction. One might even say that the book of Nahum is “a celebration of the fall of Assyria.” And this is not just a warning or speaking positively of the destruction of Nineveh, it is also a positive encouragement and “message of comfort for Israel, Judah, and others who had experienced the “endless cruelty” of the Assyrians.”

The prophet Jonah shows us where God shows concern for the people of Nineveh, while Nahum’s writing testifies to his belief in the righteousness/justice of God and how God dealt with those Assyrians in punishment according to “their cruelty”. The Assyrians had been used as God’s “rod of (…) anger, and the staff in their hand (as) indignation.”

The nature of God: From its opening, Nahum shows God to be slow to anger, but that God will by no means ignore the guilty; God will bring his vengeance and wrath to pass. God is presented as a God who will punish evil but will protect those who trust in Him.

The opening passage states: “God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies. The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked.”

The Book of Nahum is written in poetic form, using imagery and symbolism. This tone is markedly hostile toward Nineveh, especially in chapters 2 and 3, which describe the city’s destruction and humiliation. The book’s description of the Lord’s anger may cause some readers to feel uncomfortable.

However, it is important to recognize that underlying the Lord’s anger toward Nineveh, there is a deep sense of concern for the suffering of the many people who had been conquered, slain, enslaved, and terrorized by Assyria (see Nahum 3:19). The Lord’s judgments of the wicked are connected to His compassion for their victims.

The meaning of Nahum’s name plays an important role in the prophet’s message. The unrepentant wicked will receive no comfort (see Nahum 3:7), but the righteous can take comfort from Nahum’s message that the Lord cares about them and will one day bring an end to wickedness.

The Neo-Assyrian Empire reached the height of its extent and power under the Sargonid dynasty, founded by Sargon II. Under Sargon II and his son Sennacherib, the empire was further expanded and the gains were consolidated.

Both kings founded new capitals; Sargon II moved the capital to the new city of Dur-Sharrukin, and the year after, Sennacherib transferred the capital to Nineveh, which he ambitiously expanded and renovated. The conquest of Egypt under Esarhaddon brought Assyria to its greatest-ever extent.

After the death of Ashurbanipal, the Neo-Assyrian Empire swiftly collapsed. One of the primary reasons was the inability of the Neo-Assyrian kings to resolve the “Babylonian problem”; despite many attempts to appease Babylonia in the south, revolts were frequent all throughout the Sargonid period.

The revolt of Babylon under Nabopolassar, in combination with an invasion by the Medes under Cyaxares, led to the Medo-Babylonian conquest of the Assyrian Empire. Assur was sacked and Nineveh fell. The last Assyrian ruler, Ashur-uballit II, tried to rally the Assyrian army at Harran in the west but he was defeated, marking the end of the ancient line of Assyrian kings and of Assyria as a state.

Nahum 1:1: Nahum comes from Elkosh in the southern Jewish kingdom of Judah. He has a vision of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, where Jewish people from the northern kingdom of Israel have been living in slavery for over a hundred years.

Nahum 1:2-10: The LORD expresses his anger against the Assyrians. “The LORD is a jealous God who punishes; the LORD punishes and is filled with anger. The Lord punishes those who are against him, and he stays angry with his enemies.” (Nahum 1:2)

Nahum 1:11-14: Nahum prophesies the destruction of Nineveh: “You will not have descendants to carry on your name. I will destroy the idols and metal images that are in the temple of your gods. I will make a grave for you because you are wicked.” (Nahum 1:14)

Nahum 1:15-16: He looks forward to victory over the Assyrians and the ensuing peace. “Look, there on the hills, someone is bringing good news! He is announcing peace!” (Nahum 1:15)

Nahum 2:1-3:3: Nahum pictures Nineveh under attack and foresees its fall. “The people lose their courage, and their knees knock. Stomachs ache, and everyone’s face grows pale.” (Nahum 2:10)

War chariots race through its streets, and gold is plundered from the palace. “Many are dead; their bodies are piled up – too many to count. People stumble over the dead bodies.” (Nahum 3:3)

Nahum 3:4-19: Nineveh is likened to a prostitute who is being punished. “I will pull your dress up over your face and show the nations your nakedness and the kingdoms your shame. I will throw filthy rubbish on you and make a fool of you.” (Nahum 3:5-6)

Nineveh’s downfall is compared with the destruction of Thebes (Luxor), the capital of Egypt, by the Assyrians themselves. “Thebes was captured and went into captivity. Her small children were beaten to death at every street corner. Lots were thrown for her important men, and all of her leaders were put in chains.” (Nahum 3:10)

Nahum concludes that all who hear of Nineveh’s destruction will clap their hands with joy “because everyone has felt your endless cruelty.” (Nahum 3:19)

Nineveh, at the time Nahum predicted its downfall, was at the heart of a vast, powerful empire—the commercial center of the world. However, its wealth was not the result of trade alone, but also came through the practice of deceit and the plundering of neighboring nations. As Nahum writes: “Woe to the bloody city! It is all full of lies and robbery” (3:1).

Nineveh’s heinous methods are likened to a pride of ravaging lions tearing apart their prey. As Nahum puts it, Nineveh was a lion who “filled his caves with prey, and his dens with flesh” (2:12). God made clear this was certainly not the way nations should gather wealth!

The term Nineveh can also refer to a whole complex of associated villages served by one great irrigation system, and protected by one network of fortifications based on the river defenses. … Greater Nineveh was about 30 miles long and about 10 miles wide. … It was protected by 5 walls and 3 moats (canals) built by the forced labor of unnumbered thousands of foreign captives.

The book of Nahum is a Prophetic Oracle. The prophet Nahum was raised up to preach God’s judgment for a second time to Nineveh. Jonah was the first about 120 years earlier.

Its purpose is to pronounce the final warning and judgment upon Nineveh, and he also addresses the rest of the Assyrian empire. They returned to wickedness shortly after they repented back in Jonah’s day. They would neglect Nahum and his message.

Within fifty years, Nineveh would be completely decimated and utterly wiped from the face of the Earth.

Chapter 1: Nahum warns of Judgment, and describes the awesome power of God, “Mountains quake because of Him and the hills dissolve; indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, the world and all the inhabitants in it” (1:5). He then goes on to encourage a hope for the Southern Kingdom because of the coming judgment of Nineveh. “Thus says the LORD, “Though they are at full strength and likewise many, Even so, they will be cut off and pass away. Though I have afflicted you, I will afflict you no longer” (1:12).

Chapter 2-3: Nahum predicts the annihilation of Nineveh, “And it will come about that all who see you will shrink from you and say, ‘Nineveh is devastated! Who will grieve for her?’ Where will I seek comforters for you?” (3:7).
