In a new video, word renowned Bible Codes expert Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson revealed yet another connection between the upcoming year of 2016 and the arrival of the Messiah.
(2 Thessalonians 2 (KJV)
2 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.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God……………………..RP)
Glazerson opens the video by reviewing Genesis 49:1, a verse that was read in synagogues all around the world last week. In this verse, our forefather Jacob is lying on his deathbed. He calls all his sons together in order to share with them what he knows about the End of Days.
“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said: ‘Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the end of days.’”
Since every Hebrew letter has a numerical value, there is a whole system of studying hidden meanings in Hebrew texts by calculating their numerical values. This system is known as gematria. Based on a text in the Zohar, the primary text of Judaism’s mystical tradition, Glazerson calculates the gematria (the numerical value) of the two Hebrew words from Genesis 49:1 that mean “shall befall you” to be 772.
(KJV Leviticus 20:6 – And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people…….RP)
According to Glazerson, the Zohar says that, even though Jacob was prohibited by Heaven from revealing what he knew about when redemption would come, there is an indication hidden in the verse itself.
The gematria 772 corresponds to the Hebrew year 5772 which was 2011-2012. In the video, Glazerson says, “But apparently, we did not have the conditions, repentance and faith, and this is why he did not come,” in that auspicious year.
Nevertheless, there are still other auspicious times based on this verse. Glazerson points out that the Hebrew year 5775 (2014-2015) which was a sabbatical year, “also had clear indications that it could be [the year of] the Moshiach (Messiah),” but again, the necessary conditions of repentance were not fulfilled.
Since gematria can be calculated using several different formulas, Glazerson concludes that this verse could also be hinting to the current Hebrew year of 5776 which began at sundown on September 13, 2015. Some believe that the current year is also a Jubilee year, adding Biblical significance to the timing.
Speaking to Breaking Israel News, Glazerson said the auspiciousness of this year is enhanced by a different table in which he found something he says “statistically is one to millions.” In this table, he found the sentence “HaMoshiach Purim” (the Messiah in Purim) which, says Glazerson, appears only “once in the Torah in a skip of 5776 letters.” This is significant because this coming holiday of Purim (which begins at sundown on March 23, 2016) will be the Purim of the Hebrew year 5776.

At the 3:26 mark, Glazerson turns his attention to the Bible Codes table from the Book of Genesis that includes verse 49:1.
Glazerson also found the code for Moshiach intersecting with the Hebrew letters that refer to this year. Finally, he points out that the Hebrew name of Eliyahu (Elijah the prophet) who is destined to announce the arrival of the Messiah, also intersects with the letters referring to the current Hebrew year.
(KJV Matthew 17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist…….RP)
Glazerson ends the video optimistically. Although there have been promising findings in gematria and Bible Codes about previous years and we have not yet merited it, there are encouraging signs that 2016 will yet be the year in which the entire world will greet the Messiah.
(KJV Revelation 13:8“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”…….RP)
In this table, he finds codes for a number of messianic concepts, including Ben Yishai (son of Yishai) which is a clear reference to King David from whom the Messiah son of David is descended. Significantly, the Hebrew words Ben Yishai intersect with the full verse from Genesis 49:1.
(KJV Matthew 164 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed……RP)
On Saturday evening, Rabbi Aharon Shtern, the son of the respected kabbalist, Rabbi David Chaim Shtern of Bnei Brak, revealed an astounding teaching handed down from father to son for untold generations regarding the End of Days.
This past Saturday night, at the Tomb of King David on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, Rabbi Shtern spoke at a traditional melaveh malkah meal, which is held each Saturday night upon the conclusion of the Sabbath by Jews all over the world.
Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of the Tomb of David, related to Breaking Israel News the secret revealed by Rabbi Shtern.
As a child, Rabbi Shtern explained, he would annually hear this teaching around this time of year from his grandfather, Rabbi Moshe Chaim Mendel, who had received it from his grandfather. The teaching was based on last week’s Torah portion from the section of Vayehi (Genesis 49), which describes Jacob’s request during his dying days to receive a vision of the End of Days.
Ultimately, the prophecy was withheld by God from Jacob at this moment because he wanted to reveal to his children when the Messiah would arrive.
Rabbi Shtern’s teaching centers around the verse found in Genesis 49:1, “That will happen at the End of Days – את אשר יקרא אתכם באחרית הימים.” According to the understanding passed down in his family, Rabbi Shtern explained that each letter in the entire verse is used in an acronym for:
אם תום אלף שישי רובו יפול קיסר רוסיה אלכסנדר אז תהינה כמה מלחמות בעולם אז חריבה רוסיה ירושלים תבנה הגלות יסור מעלינו יבוא משיחנו.
At the end of six thousand the Caesar of Russia Alexander will fall, there will be several wars in the world, Russia will be destroyed and Jerusalem will be built, the Diaspora will leave us, and the Messiah will come.
Rabbi Shtern explained that the present day conflict between Russia and Turkey is what is described in his family’s ancient teaching.
Rabbi Berger explained to Breaking Israel News that this was just like God hardening Pharaoh’s heart, making him keep Israel in Egypt despite the horrible plagues.
“All these things show us how close we are,” Rabbi Berger said. “It was prophesied in Micah (7:15), ‘As in the days when you came out from the land of Egypt, I will show you miracles’. Things that happened in the Exodus will repeat themselves before the messiah, and even more. The present conflict between Russia and Turkey is the precursor to the events leading up to the Messiah, when we will see Divine intervention more clearly, if we look for it.”
Touching upon Rabbi Shtern’s teaching, Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News, “What we are seeing now, things that have no reason or logic, and no explanation, makes it clear what is about to happen. We are so close, and all the prophecies and signs show this. It is the only explanation for what is happening today.”
(KJV John 5:
42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?………….RP)
