The Combined Family Crest of Kahana/Harkema
A Voice Through the Ages
Ever play with the Bible Code generator. Not the commercial version in English that has about as much relevance as the Magic Eight Ball. But the real version. The one written in the same ancient Hebrew that the Old Testament was written in. Because if you did, you'd be surprised by what can be discerned from these Codes that most modern day religious authorities say are irrelevant and totally unfounded. I must admit that I was skeptical myself. How could a text written twenty-five hundred years ago know anything about what was to come in the future? So I played and toyed with my program, entering words and names that couldn't possibly exist or be known about at the time. I entered Kahana, my old family title (surname) and Caiaphas (an ancestor) and Kohen (the family job description) and it came up with points of crossover in the text. Too easy I thought, better add some more just to prove this didn't work. So I added Messiah and Nazarene, just to confuse it more knowing that these didn't exist at the time the Old Testament was written. But again it came up with cross references. Shouldn't be able to do this! So I decided to make it more difficult. I gave it a starting point as Aaron and an end point as myself, Allen and even to make it more complicated, my present surname translated as Valley of Gold. That should have stumped it. But it didn't. It came back with 3305 cross matrices using all the terms of reference. An impossibility or so it should have been for anyone that can perform the statistical variance. It took me a while to understand that particular number but then I reflected that the last thing I entered was the time frame of Aaron, my patriarchal ancestor and Allen, being myself and it was providing me with its own time frame of reference. The number of years between our births. It was telling me that Aaron was born in 1350 BC. And suddenly I was a believer. Oh, yes, I can trace my ancestry back a very long way. The DNA analysis of J2a4h confirms it and my list of illustrious relatives over the past five centuries support it. Who am I? That I believe is the question that brought you here. You want to know and you want to find out. Now I find myself writing constantly about my ancestors and discussing them on my blogsite. Some of the story you will find at www.legendsofthekahana.webs.com but most of it you can find right here. And I've made it easy to find what you're looking for by placing all my articles into this handy Bibliographical data sheet at http://kahana.hubpages.com/hub/Bibliographical-Index-for-Kahanas-Voice .
