1948: Prediction Fulfilled

Israel was prophesied to be sent into exile in the Bible – and it tells for how long, too.   Which, of course, tells us when she will become a nation again.  Oh,wait… she became a nation in 1948, right?  My bad.  ((wink!))

Ezekiel 4:5-6  For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.

So the verse says that each day stands for a year… and we have 390+40… that’s 430.

And we know that Daniel was reading Jeremiah 25 about how Isreal was in Babylonian captivity was 70 years.

Jeremiah 25:9-11 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land… And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

So 430 years of exile minus the 70 spent in Babylon equals 360 years. Ah… but they were bad doobies and were punished further…

Leviticus 26: 18-21 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits. And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.

So 360 times 7 is 2,520 Biblical years.
And Bible years have 360 days…. so 2520 times 360 is 907,200 days.
Now… we start counting from the end of the Babylonian captivity, which was Nissan 1, or March 14th.  That’s the third month on our calendar.  So we have to subtract the first three months (90 Biblical days) + the fourteen days of ‘March’…

…that would be 907,200 – (90+14)= 907,096 days.
Converting it to our years: 907,096 divided by 365.25 = 2,483.4935
Next, we have to take into account that there’s no year ‘0’ between 1BC and 1AD… and we have to subtract the ‘BC’ years after the Babylonian captivity (which was March 14, 536BC).

So the math is: 2483.4935 – 536 = 1948.4935 … or 1948.5.

According to these Biblical calculations, Isreal would become a nation again in… the fifth month of 1948… or… MAY 1948.

Freaky? I don’t think so.  Not one Biblical prophecy has been proven wrong as of yet.  Daniel 9 predicted the Savior’s death in 32AD.  These verses predicted the Isreali nation’s rebirth in May of 1948.  These are detailed predictions, and very detailed, accurate fulfillments.  And remember… all of these verses were written at least 500BC.

((I’m setting you up for something… be prepared.))
