First you need to explain how it is right, since you are the one introducing it.
I looked at the linked-to page back when you linked to it in the other thread, for probably at least a minute and could make no sense of it. I need
you to explain it to me.
I don't see how it would be hard to understand myself, but I also love math. It's simple for me, but if you say you really struggle understanding it,
that's fine. I'll try my best to just include the relevant info for the prophecy.
... Ezekiel 4:4-6
"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 . . .
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
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 the nation of Israel
The7X Factor of God's Judgment
The Mystery of 360 Years . . .
There should have been a total of 360 years left (remaining) 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??!!
. . .
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
cities waste." ~ Leviticus 26:33
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
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 (Julian) 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 Now 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
