The last cluster in the Sid Roth life matrix is in the upper left corner, and is another cluster on the radio show, Messianic Vision. However, in this one I was looking for long-time staff members of the Sid Roth Ministry, Bob & Janie Duval. The name of the TV show is also there, but I didn't display it. This is logical since Bob & Janie work on both the radio and TV shows.
Bob & Janie's last name (Duval) runs horizontally between the term Messianic and the term for vision. I showed in the cluster that both possible spellings for Janie appear, and I did that purposely to deflect any criticism that might arise had I just used one spelling. Somebody would have said, well, why didn't you transliterate Janie this way? Lesson 10 is that when transliterating names, there may be more than one possible spelling, look for all the possiblities. The two occurrences of Bob run through the name Duval and are next to each other. I look for crossing terms, because they are much more meaningful. However, we all know that a 3 letter name like Bob would appear just about anywhere, therefore, crossing terms add significance when using shorter terms because it narrows considerably the area where they might be found.
The last portion of the matrix report shows significant terms that are not in a cluster, or at least not a developed cluster. The term mishpakhah means family, and is a signature phrase that Sid Roth uses on every one of his radio shows. I guess I could have included the term Mishpakhah on the left side of the matrix in cluster 8, since it does cross the terms and belongs with the radio show cluster. The two occurrences of mishpakhah occur on either side of the main/center term, Rothbaum, and are parallel to it.
The 5 summary lines at the end of the matrix report, when using the CodeFinder program, summarizes well the information in the matrix. The matrix ELS is 746, while the matrix itself only uses 115 columns of the 746, and has 118 rows. The matrix is made up of a total of 13,570 letters in the 115x118 array. It begins in the upper right corner at Song of Songs 2:6 and letter 5 (Song of Solomon), and ends in the lower left corner at Nehemiah 7:14 and letter 14. There are 73 terms in the matrix, although some appear a few times, like radio, etc.
Let's review the Lessons Learned from the Sid Roth life matrix.
The first lesson learned is that the Bible code is present throughout the Tanakh (the Old Testament but in the book order used in the Hebrew masoretic text, not the order of books used in English Bible translations).
The second lesson learned is that the multi-dimensional design aspect of the Bible code occurs in life matrixes.
Lesson number 3 learned is that in my opinion, a life matrix has a center or main term using the last name of the person.
Lesson number 4 is that dates in the Bible code are generally in the Jewish calendar, not in the date from the Gregorian civil calendar (or Julian calendar prior to 1582).
Lesson number 5 is that the birthdate information cluster occurs in the upper right corner of the life matrix.
Lesson number 6 is that the significance of a cluster is seen by terms crossing, closely parallel, or in close proximity. The size of the cluster also adds meaning.
Lesson 7 is that the Bible code is designed to be viewed visually in a matrix, reading the words horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
Lesson number 8 is that a term can be used in more than one cluster, if it crosses both clusters.
Lesson 9 is that you have to sometimes try to break up a longer phrase in different ways to find it in the matrix. Not breaking up words themselves, but a phrase made up of a number of words.
Lesson 10 is that when transliterating names, there may be more than one possible spelling, look for all the possiblities.
Am I dogmatic about the lessons learned cited above, NO!. If you or someone else proves me wrong then I will accept that. Bible code researchers have labored for a while now with no knowledge of the design characteristics of the Bible code. This 3-part article allows me an opportunity to give people a push in the right direction. Everyone seems interested in life matrixes, and especially a matrix on their own life.
You may ask, "but Roy, where is the date of death information in the matrix?" It is there, but I refuse to teach it. I don't think that any person should know their date of death ahead of time. It takes away hope and optimism and can cause a person to act in immature ways. Besides, the story of king Hezekiah in the Bible (Isaiah 38 and 2 Chronicles 32 in the English Bible) tells us that a person may be given a longer life than that appointed. Isaiah 38 tells us that the prophet Isaiah went to king Hezekiah when he fell ill, and prophesied that his appointed time to die had come. King Hezekiah wept bitterly and prayed that God would grant him additional days of life. God sent the prophet Isaiah back to king Hezekiah and prophesied that he would be given 15 additional years and would be healed of the sickness he had.
There are two major points in the story of king Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah. One is that there is an appointed time to die. The second is that God can change that appointed time if you ask. The date of death information in the life matrix is obscured somewhat (purposely I think) so that it is not easy to see in a straightforward manner like the date of birth. If you want to learn how the date of death is shown, then you'll have to do a few life matrixes on historical people where there is an accurate date of death. By doing a few, you'll learn how the date of death is shown in a life matrix. Sorry, I am making all the above lessons freely available to anyone, but I won't rob hope and optimism from people by showing them how to find the appointed date of their death in the life matrix.
