Amazing Mathematical Prophecy
ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM
“Who has heard such a thing?
Who has seen such things?
Shall the Earth be made
to give birth in one day?
Or shall a Nation be born at once?
For as soon as Zion was in labor,
she gave birth to her children.”
The Return of Israel ... May 14, 1948
You are about to read one of the most fascinating and remarkable
prophecies in the Bible. What makes it even more remarkable is that
it is a mathematical prophecy that had a dual
fulfillment! For when we realize how precisely this prophecy has
been fulfilled after 2,500
years, we must realize all the Bible prophecies concerning Israel,
Jerusalem, and the world including the coming Antichrist, the
Rapture, the Apocalypse, the Battle of Armageddon, and Messiah's
Return will be fulfilled just as accurately and literally as the
amazing prophecy presented here ...
An Amazing Mathematical Bible Prophecy
"Then God said to Ezekiel,
'Now lie on your left side for 390 days
to show Israel will be punished for 390 years
by captivity and doom.
Each day you lie there represents
a year of punishment ahead for Israel.
Afterwards, turn over and lay on your right side
for 40 days, to signify the years of Judah's punishment.
Each day will represent one year . . .'"
This Is A Remarkable Prophecy
Although a little obscure (and sophisticated) this is one of the
most fascinating prophecies found in the Bible.
A Mathematical Prophecy
Here, we find God telling Ezekiel that each day he (Ezekiel) lies
on his side will represent one year of punishment for the nation
Israel (Israel + Judah) because of their iniquities (sins) against
So, we have:
390 days Judgment against the 10 northern
+ 40 days Judgment against the 2 southern tribes
= 430 years Judgment against the nation of Israel
The Fulfillment of the Prophetic Judgment Begins . . .
In 606 B.C. Israel (Judah) was taken into captivity by Babylon
for exactly 70 years ...
430 Years of judgment determined against nation
- 70 Years fulfilled during the Babylonian captivity
= 360 Years remaining in judgment against nation Israel
The Mystery of 360 Years
There should have been a total of 360 years left in judgment
against Israel after their release from Babylonian captivity by the
Persian general Cyrus, exactly 70 years after the Babylonian
captivity began (just as the prophet Jeremiah had prophesied before
the captivity) ... but where was the remaining 360 year judgment in
The 7X Factor of God's Judgment
Bible scholars could not find any specific captivity or
dispersion that fulfilled these 360 years left in the judgment until
a close look in the book of Leviticus revealed a startling prophetic
"And after all this, if you do not obey Me,
then I (God) will punish you seven times more for your
"Then, if you walk contrary to Me,
and are not willing to obey Me,
I (God) will bring on you seven times more plagues,
according to your sins."
"And after all this,
if you do not obey Me,
but walk contrary to Me,
then I (God) also will walk contrary to you in fury;
and I, even I will chastise you seven times for your sins.:
"I (God) will scatter you among the nations
and draw a sword after you;
your Land shall be desolate
and your cities waste."
The 7X factor of God's judgment against nation Israel. God
warned Israel if they continued in their disobedience He would
multiply their judgment by seven times! As noted throughout these
prophetic studies, God says what He means, and He means what He
Now, let's apply the 7X factor to the remaining 360 years of
judgment against nation Israel in this remarkable mathematical
360 Remaining years of judgment
x 7 The prophetic '7X' factor
= 2,520 Years of judgment remained against nation Israel
God gave the Jews the most sophisticated calendar on Earth. It
is both a Lunar and a Solar calendar. The Jewish calendar uses a
360 day lunar (and prophetic) year and then adds a 'Leap Month' on
specific years to accurately coincide with the Solar cycle we use on
our 'Gregorian' calendar.
The Bible uses 360 day years for prophecies and expects us to add
the appropriate 'leap months' on schedule. So, the easiest way to
unravel this prophecy is to first convert this prophecy into days
x 360 Days
= 907,200 Days of judgment remained against nation
after the Babylonian captivity
Now, to convert the 907,200 days found in this prophecy into our
365.25 day solar (Gregorian) years (the .25 adjusts for leap years)
. . .
÷ 365.25 Days
= 2,483.78 years of God's judgment remained
With this information,
let's look at this remarkable prophecy again ...
606 B.C Israel taken into
- 70 Years for 70 years
= 536 B.C. End of first 70 years of
+ 2483 Years Add the 2,483 years
remaining in this judgment
+ 1 Year Add 1 year because
there is no "0" B.C. or A.D.
= 1948 AD! End of judgment against nation
A DUAL Fulfillment of This Prophecy
Israel Back as a Nation ... in 1948!
Judah (Israel) was taken into captivity by the Babylonians in 606
B.C. They were released from captivity 70 years later by the
Persians in 536 A.D., exactly as the prophet Jeremiah had
prophesied, but their land was still under the control of the
Persians. The Persians were later conquered by the Greeks, and the
land of Israel remained under Greek control. The Greeks were then
conquered by Rome and the land of Israel remained under Roman
control. After failed rebellions against Rome around 70 A.D. and
another around 100 years later, the Romans removed the Jews from the
land of Israel, dispersed them around the world and then renamed the
land 'Palestine' after the enemies of Israel. Then, after 2,500
years, and for the first time since the Babylonian captivity in 606
B.C., the world watched as Israel once again appeared on the world
map as a sovereign nation, on May 14, 1948 ... exactly
when the Bible said it would!!
"Thus says the Lord God:
'Surely I will take the children of Israel
from among the nations,
wherever they have gone,
and will gather them from every side
and bring them into their own land."
(Ezekiel 37:21) ('Nations' (plural)...not the return
"Who has heard such a thing?
Who has seen such things?
Shall the Earth be made to give birth in one day?
Or shall a nation be born at once? (Fulfilled on May 14,
For as soon as Zion was in labor,
she gave birth to her children."
Jerusalem Back as Israel’s Capital ... in 1967!
Israel regaining Jerusalem as its capital in 1967 is another
incredible and remarkable mathematical Bible Prophecy
What makes this mathematical Bible prophecy even more
remarkable is if you take this exact same prophetic
time-line we used with the "Israel" mathematical prophecy
fulfillment, which starts on the year of Babylon's conquest of the
nation Israel and ends with Israel once again raised as a nation in
1948 ... and now ... shift this exact same prophetic time-line
to start on the year when Babylon later returned and destroyed
Jerusalem (exactly 19 years later) ... we find remarkably (and
prophetically and miraculously) this prophetic time-line's
"end-point" now falls on the exact year Israel once again
took sovereign control over Jerusalem in 1967 (during the
"Six Day War”).
"For I am God,
and there is no other.
I am God,
and there is none like Me,
Declaring the End from the Beginning,
and from ancient times
things that are NOT yet done"

prophetic fulfillment of Ezekiel's prophecy in 1948 and 1967 go to
