Okay. This took me ALL night to find in the Bible to type to you folks :
The Bible predicts Israels reformation, this is widely known.. it was actually predicted twice. read Isaiah 11:11.. not typing it all out
But did you know it was predicted to the PRECISE year!?
You could also use Daniel's prophecy of the 70 Weeks to come up with the exact date of Jesus' entrance in Jerusalem on the original Palm Sunday.
And there's also this bit of interesting "coincidences"
When the Bible talks about days in a prophetical context, it is really talking about years.
1 Day = 1 (Hebrew Calendar) Year
Numbers 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye
searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year.
Ezekiel 4:5-6 For I have laid upon thee the years... according to
the number of the days
, three hundred and ninety days ... so
shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel ... and thou
shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I
have appointed thee each day for a year.
And when it uses the term "time" it means one thousand years.
1 Time = 1,000 Years
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that
one day [Greek word, hemera, "Time"] is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as one day.
Daniel and Revelation state some events that take place over a number of thousands of days.
Daniel 12:11 From the time that the daily sacrifice is removed and the abomination that causes desolation is set in place, there are 1,290 days.
The Jewish sacrifices in Jerusalem were stopped in 688BC when the Babylonians carried the Jewish priesthood into captivity.
1,290 years later in the year 688 AD , the Dome of the Rock was built near the spot that the Muslims believed was where the Holy of Hollies was in the
Jewish Temple. This meant it would be impossible to perform sacrifices , the Dome has made the Temple Mount desolate. The Dome is also full of
Anti-Christian writings say how Allah does not have children and that Jesus is not God.
Rev 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they
tread under foot forty and two months.
The Dome of the Rock was actually built a few hundred yards from where the Holy of Holies actually was , it was built in the Court of the Gentiles.
Rev 11 says Jerusalem will be occupied by foreign powers for forty two months. 42 Months is 42 momths x 30.44 days that is 1,278 days..
Israel liberated East Jerusalem from the Arabs in 1967. Ending thousands of years of foreign occuptation.
If you take 1967 and backtrack 1,278 years , you end up in 688 AD, when the Dome of the Rock was. When islam took it over, it ended any hope for the
restoration of a free jewish state.
Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and
What is happening here is the pregnant woman (The State of Israel) . She is being attacked and pursued by the Dragon (Satan). Israel will be in
isolation for 1,260 days/years.
Israel is told to flee the land if they ever see the Abmonination that makes Desolate. so if the Dome of the Rock is the Abonination , then
something happened 1,260 years after the Dome was constructed in 688 AD. That year falls on 1948 AD. When the State of Israel was restablished. The
woman was no longer in the wilderness
Rev 11:3 And I will grant my two witnesses authority to prophesy for 1,260 days, dressed in sackcloth.
Israel and the Church are the two witnesses. Israel was withdrawn from the world in 1948, 1,260 years after it was scattered. And around 1948
WW-II was ending and Europe was bringing about the end to its witness, Christianity.
[I admit,this is weak example]
Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and
laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Belshazzar is appointed to be ruler of the land that Nebuchadnezzar conquered in Israel in 522 BC. Israel was under the control of foreign kings
and princes for the next 2,500 years. Until 1948,
Daniel 12:7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen who was over the waters of the river as he raised both his right and left hands to the sky and
made an oath by the one who lives forever: “It is for a time, times, and half a time . Then, when the power of the one who shatters the holy people
has been exhausted, all these things will be finished.”
This prophecy was given to Daniel in 533 BC during the third year of reign of Cyrus of Persia, 2,500 years later is 1967. Israel was under the
control of other empires for that entire duration and Jerusalem itself was under occupation until 1967.
Daniel 7:12 As for the rest of the beasts, their ruling authority had already been removed, though they were permitted to go on living for a time
and a season
A time is 1,000 years. A season is 25% of the time of the full year. So in the case of a Time, a Season is 250 years. The islamic beast has been
around 1,250 years, having taken over Israel in 688 and finally free in 1948.
So to summarize. Just taking a "day" to mean a year, and a "time" to mean "1,000 years" the following is reached:
1. The 1290 days of Dan 12:11 fulfilled in 688AD by the
construction of the Moslem Dome of the Rock.
2 The 42 months of Rev 11:2 fulfilled in 1967AD by the
freeing of Jerusalem from Gentile control.
3. The 1260 Days of Rev 11:3 fulfilled in 1948AD by the
Jewish people returning to their homeland.
4. The 1260 days of Rev 12:5 fulfilled in 1948AD by the
establishment of the new nation of Israel.
5. The Time, Times and Half Time of Dan 7:25 fulfilled in
1948AD by the new nation of Israel.
6. The Time, Times and Half Time of Dan 12:7 fulfilled in
1967AD by the freeing of Jerusalem.
7. The Season and Time of Dan 7:12 fulfilled in 1948AD
when Gentiles lost control of the Holy Land
I also believe in the prophecies are dualistic, so that they'll have a direct literal fulfillment as well in the future.
