Are there codes in the Bible? How does the Bible differ from the prophecies of Nostradamus?


The Bible is not an ancient codebook. And while there are many literary styles in the Bible, including what the Jews called remezes (hidden meanings), people need to be very careful about looking for hidden codes. All too often, the popular books that claim to have uncoded biblical codes do so with forced reasoning and manipulated evidence. When it comes to Nostradamus, he never claimed to be speaking for God. God’s prophets spoke the words God gave them, and we have those words recorded in the Bible. They are the very words of God. Moreover, Nostradamus’s predictions are highly ambiguous, written in such a way that you can find fulfillment in any number of events. Not so with the Bible. With hundreds of biblical prophecies having been fulfilled with precise accuracy, we have no doubt that prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled will come to pass.
