Matthew Parker's Decoder #2012-7

Did you solve the strange message in the July 2012 issue of Clubhouse? Here it is again:


When you unscramble the code, it'll answer the question: "Who keeps us safe?"

How It Works:

Busting this code seems obvious. Just unscramble each group of letters to reveal a word. But it’s not as easy as it looks; each word contains one “red herring” letter that doesn’t belong! Hint: To check if you're right, you can find this phrase in Deuteronomy 6:4.


Each and every day, United Parcel Service delivers more than 15 million packages, FedEx delivers more than 3.5 million packages and the United States Postal Service processes more than 563 million letters and packages. Together, they sort and deliver more than 6,500 pieces of mail every second. And almost all of them arrive at the right address in just a few days!

Look for another secret message next month!
