Item description for Bible Code II by Michael Drosnin...
Overview Explains a hidden mathematical code embedded in the Old Testament that predicts world-changing events that took place long after the Bible was written, including the French Revolution, the 1969 moon landing, and the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin
Publishers Description The Bible code-the ancient code encrypted in the Bible that may reveal our future-was made known to the world by investigative reporter Michael Drosnin. Now he reveals startling new predictions warning that we may have only three years to stop the countdown to Armageddon. This dramatic account opens on the morning of September 11, 2001, when Drosnin witnessed the attack on the World Trade Center-and then found the terrible event predicted in detail in the 3,000-year-old Bible code. But according to the code, September 11 was only the beginning. The Bible code says we are already in the "End of Days," the Apocalypse foretold by all three major religions of the West. Drosnin has traveled the globe to meet with world leaders to prevent the impending danger-and to search for the "Code Key," a long-buried ancient object that may completely unlock the Bible code, just in time to save our world.

AGE OF TERRORISM! Jan 29, 2007
I had a nightmare last night. I had seen four Arab men with what looked like an atom bomb about to detonate it in the New York subway system!I had seen the movie THE MONEY TRAIN: And I thought I recognized the yellow brick rooms like in the movie. Drosnin in his last book BIBLE CODE II: THE COUNTDOWN, seems to predict that New York City is destined for such a nuclear terror attack! On this subject, Drosnin writes: "I fear that one morning we will wake up to the news that a whole city has been destroyed-not two big buildings, but an entire city-that New York, Tel Aviv, or Jerusalem just does not exist anymore." (p. 235) Drosnin has found other nuclear holocaust predictions in the Old Testament in coded form, in the that resemble crossword puzzles: Atomic holocaust with a missile (p. 226); Atomic Holocaust in 2006 (p. 235). I noticed as I studied the Book of Revelation, God sends down judgments on man in increments, getting increasingly severe right up to Armageddon. I like how Drosnins found that the terror attacks werd Birth Pangs like the language Jesus Christ used in the Olivet Dioscourse. Birth pains in the Olivet Discourse refer to disasters that God sends upon mankind as judgments or punishments. And just like the woman in labor, the pains and disasters both become more intense and frequent until the woman gives birth. But in Bible prophecy, the event is the End of the world or the Second Coming of Jesus Christ! But Drosnin also said: "Apocalyptic religious fanatics, terrorists armed with weapons of mass destruction, men who believe they are on a mission from God, they are the ultimate danger encloded in the Bible." (p.22) I had found another mysterious encypted message in the Old Testament which shows the "Mercy of God" intertwined with "Judgment of God" Like it says God may wound but he also forgives. Also I saw this insight about Bin Laden on my own but later found it in this book: "Bin Laden" associated with "Judgment from God". Like God was using Bin Laden as a sword in his hand to punish or scourge the United States for its sins and cruelty. I get my deductions from the Holy Spirit and personal Bible study. I don't know the first thing about Hebrew!
Interesting subject -- dissapointing delivery. Dec 6, 2006
Admits on page 5 that he doesn't believe in God. Hmmmm. What a waste of time. This is a very interesting subject, but he simply should've handed the project over to a believer. Instead of trying to break the code to the future, he should just read and study the Bible. There is quite a wealth of information in there.
So, why should he expect us to believe that someone who doesn't believe in God, or the Bible for that matter, would have anything valid to say about our future. Has he set himself up as God? Why was he trying to consult our Presidents and world leaders? Hello Mr. Vanity. Why was this book in the Christian section of the bookstore? I'm taking it back.
approach with caution Oct 20, 2006
Bible Code enthusiasts believe God put hidden messages in the Bible for us to find with a computer, however, when you read this man's book, a whole different picture emerges. He states over and over again that he does not believe in God. Then somewhere towards the end of the book, he tells you what he DOES believe. He believes that the Bible Codes are real, but the Bible and its codes were not written by God, but by an alien intelligence that came to us from another planet in a UFO. AND... He claims that there is a Bible Code Key, a steel obelisk buried beneath the salt encrusted land of the Dead Sea, and it is his goal to find it. This key is supposed to contain all knowledge of humanity and it was brought to earth by aliens in a UFO, the ones who supposedly created us. He states we are destined to find this obelisk when the end times are upon us. Incidentally, the Dead Sea, including the land around it, is geographically the lowest point on earth and is considered by some Christian theologians to be the main gateway to hell. AND... This man is bouncing back and forth between world leaders telling them of his dire predictions, BUT that the predictions are actually just "warnings", and we can work to change the outcomes by working together for peace. When his predictions don't come true, he goes back to the computer program and types in different trigger words until he gets the prediction to say what he wants it to say. Or, he claims that we can somehow manage to avoid making the dire prediction come true by taking defensive action soon enough. He predicted a smallpox epidemic to strike Israel in 2005. That didn't happen. Did anyone take action to prevent it? He predicted a nuclear attack on New York or Israel in 2006 (we have a little over 2 months left in 2006 to see if that one comes true). The test of a true prophecy of God is that it will always come true. I was given the very distinct impression that this man's approach to Bible Codes, using them to predict the future, is the handiwork of Satan, and may prove to be a primary tool of the False Prophet. The book Alien Encounters by Chuck Missler hypothesizes that the Antichrist's arrival will be accompanied by a skyful of UFOs, and the Antichrist will then claim that the raptured (missing) Christians were taken by the UFOs because they need to be "re-educated", and here Drosnin is stating a firm belief in aliens as our creators. God warns against listening to soothsayers, mediums, fortunetellers and the like. This really isn't much different. And why would God use an admitted atheist to minister His prophecies to the world? He wouldn't. Christians should ignore Drosnin's Bible Codes, or, at the very least, approach them with great skepticism. If you have an interest in Bible Codes, stick to the writings of Christians, such as Chuck Missler or the Christian Jewish Minister Yacov Rambsel. I also recommend reading the book Alien Encounters by Missler.

Being authoritative enough to convince people in the writing business is essential and Drosnin does that and he has "experts" to back him up, but why do we need a code anyway? A little bit of research and you'll find that all these ideas about the future are already out there. There is no doubt the world is going to hell in a hand-basket. Mankind has always been on the brink of war or at war, continuously. Nothing new and few will be surprised if we blow each other up.
Books like these are just another way to generate an income for both writer and publisher while the going is good - they can't lose if wrong because the money's already been made and author's always can leave themselves a back door, in this case something like a catch-22 phrase inferring more than one possible future, etc., etc. to cover themselves. Ultimately this books sells fear. This is a market rich in opportunities these days. We need more books on practical solutions to the human problem. The book is sensationalism trying to be serious. If one considers themselves a genuine Christian, this subject is useless to waste time over.
