God Predicted President Romney in the Old Testament

Posted by on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 at 12:35 PM

So in the Old Testament, God predicted that a Mormon would become president of the United States, I guess. Cancel the polls!

A well-known Bible-code researcher has bad news for Barack Obama, as he claims hidden texts in the Holy Bible indicate Mitt Romney will be America’s next president.

Moshe Aharon Shak, an orthodox Jew and author of “Bible Codes Breakthrough,” has produced a series of videos on YouTube with his modern analysis of Scripture.

For those not familiar with Bible codes, they are said to be secret messages embedded in the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament...“The matrix is found in Deuteronomy Chapter 28, verses 13 and 14,” says Shak, a mechanical engineer from Montreal, Canada. “There we find his first name, last name, day and month of birth, and the term ‘president.’ Fifteen terms consisting of 85 letters are found telling a fascinating story.”

Here's video, if you need more "proof."

From the same mindset that brought you the non-existent Rapture of May 21, 2011! Now with political predictions!

Some background on this.

And no matter how many times their "predictions" fail to materialize, they keep at it.

If you sift through enough noise, you'll find a signal if you're looking for one.

Searching for secret codes (or any signs of the supernatural for that matter) stimulates the same part of the brain that responds to gambling. Some people just can't stop dropping those coins in.

Seems like the onus should be on this person to show how the Bible has predicted past presidents as well.

Jeez, the idea that a book SUPPOSEDLY dictated by God a few thousand years ago would predict the winner of a specific presidental election in a country on a continent then unknown makes so much sense. Oh wait, no, that's right, it's the most arrogant and disrespectful assertion a person could make about their religion.

I'm seeing a potential Romney Cabinet member. Secretary of State Perhaps?

This is precisely the style of prophecy that Mitt Romney believes in via his foundational philosophy Mormonism.

Damn it! Would a "spoiler alert" be too much to ask for??

Forget the Old Testament; A Romney presidency is predicted in the Book of Revelation.

Something about a million monkeys with a million typewriters for a million years producing all of Shakespeare, I'm afraid.

Couldn't say it better myself, @8.

This when the Bible becomes a Roscharch test.

Wait till you see my soon-to-be published book, The Bubble Codes! Careful analysis of my farts in a swimming pool showed that they predict that Jesus will return to Earth on the re-entering Hubble space telescope in 2017!!!!

Or maybe it was Xenu on an old Russian spy satellite. The Morse code timing for that part was a little ambiguous. I can definitely rule out Quetzacoatl wrapped around a tube of chocolate pudding ejected from Skylab.

If you look at the text in a mirror, it says Morbo will be our new overlord.

I hope Shak the engineer doesn't use the same method to calculate load capacities for bridges.

I always wonder how these guys feel the morning after they are wrong.

Well, we'll all see if he's correct on November 6th. I doubt it but who knows.
