If anyone doubts the authenticity of the Bible, this discussion will provide the proof needed to erase, any and, all doubts. It started with the Jews, whereby, God provided clear instructions for prosperity and safety. Prosperity and safety for ever were laid down in eleven verses. With clear understandable directives found in, Leviticus 26: 3-13. All the Jews had to do was to adopt them. and live the life of obedience. But, a walk contrary of disobedience had consequences, as presented in Leviticus 26:14-20. Then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins, Leviticus 26:18;21-22.
The Jews walked the way contrary to God’s edicts. And so God walked contrary to them and the table of plenty became the table emptiness.
Now the time table to, 14 May 1948.
So God summoned Ezekiel saying, “Lie also on your left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it. According to the number of the days that you lie on it, you shall bear their iniquity. For I have laid on you the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days; so you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. And when you have completed them, lie again on your right side; then you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days. I have laid on you a day for each year,” Ezekiel 4:4-6.
The math to, 14 May 1948 – 390+40=430 days. God had decreed the Jews a total of 430 years of punishment because of their sins against him. The Jews where conquered by King Nebuchadnezzar and kept in captivity for 70 years.
Jeremiah provides for us this scripted history. Saying, “And this whole land shall be an desolation and an astonishment, and these nations (house of Israel and Judah) shall serve the king of Babylon seventy.” Jeremiah 25:11.
“Then it will come pass, when seventy years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquity,’ says the LORD; ‘and I will make it a perpetual desolation,'” Jeremiah 25:12.
And so it occurred, we learned form a previous discussion, Cyrus, king of Persia issued a proclamation freeing the Jews in 538 B.C. It’s from that date that we begin our calculations. Coordinating them the other scriptures cited. Thus 430-70=360 years.
Using the Hebrew calendar of 360 days per year, we get, 360×7=2520 years or 907,200 days. Using our 365 day calendar for a year and we take the 907,200 figure and divide it by 365, it equals 2485.4794 years, or 2485.5 years. So we take the 2485.5 figure and subtract the year of Cyrus king of Persia proclamation in 538 BC, we get the year 1947.5 which is not 1948. So the year 1947.5, is referred to as 1948.5. However the discrepancy occurs because there is no zero year. So it works out this way, May is the fifth month and the nation of Israel came into existence again on the 14th. day of 1948.
Ezekiel! Say to them! “Thus says the Lord, 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 into their own land, Ezekiel 37:21.
And I will make them one nation in the land of the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into kingdoms again,” Ezekiel 37:22.
And so it became, as Israel has had twelve kings to date rule over them. Then a new king took control of the youthful nation. Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, 14 May 1948-26 January 1954.
Unfortunately, despite all that provable history for prosperity and safety human instinct will prevail, and it will cause Israel to be be vexed by God again.
