II Timothy 2:23-26
In recent years Jewish Rabbi's have discovered what they believe
to be hidden codes in the Hebrew text of the O.T. that reveal an astonishing knowledge of future events and people. By starting
with the first letter of a name or event and then skipping forward
at an interval of a certain number of letters they were able to find
what they believed to be hidden codes in the Bible. The idea goes back to the fourteenth-century in a book written by a Jewish Rabbi

you would find the phrase "in the bitter sea of Auschwitz" as a
reference to the Nazi concentration in Auschwitz, Poland where thousands of Jews were killed and burned in the ovens.
Grant Jeffery, a prophecy teacher, has even written a book called The Mysterious Bible Codes in which he takes you through all kinds of events and people who he claims are mentioned in the Bible. In his book he claims the Bible contains the prophecy
about President Bill Clinton and his affair with Monica Lewinsky
along with Saddam Hussein invading Kuwait and the Gulf War.
