Amazing Mathematical Prophecy








“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.”
(Isaiah 66:8)


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 . . .'"
(Ezekiel 4:4-6)


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 God ...


So, we have:

      390  days    Judgment against the 10 northern tribes 'Israel'
  +    40  days    Judgment against the 2 southern tribes 'Judah'
  =  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 Israel
  -    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 Israel's history??!!


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 warning ...


"And after all this, if you do not obey Me,
then I (God) will punish you seven times more for your sins."
(Leviticus 26:18)


"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."
(Leviticus 26:21)


"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.:
(Leviticus 26:27-28)


"I (God) will scatter you among the nations
and draw a sword after you;
your Land shall be desolate
and your cities waste."
(Leviticus 26:33)


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 says!


Prophecy Fulfilled!!!


Now, let's apply the 7X factor to the remaining 360 years of judgment against nation Israel in this remarkable mathematical prophecy ...


        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 ...


         2,520  Years
       x   360  Days
 =  907,200  Days of judgment remained against nation Israel
                    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) . . .

       907,200   Days
÷   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 Babylonian captivity
    -     70  Years     for 70 years
  =   536   B.C.       End of first 70 years of judgment


  + 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 Israel 



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 from Babylon)


"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, 1948)
For as soon as Zion was in labor,
she gave birth to her children."
(Isaiah 66:8)




Jerusalem Back as Israel’s Capital ... in 1967!


Israel regaining Jerusalem as its capital in 1967 is another incredible and remarkable mathematical Bible Prophecy fulfilled!!

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"
(Isaiah 46:9-10)
