Proof of God – Bible Prophecies Fulfilled – Prophecy about Arab Nations

Prophecy about the Arab Nations

The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”

The angel of the Lord also said to her: “You are now pregnant, and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard of your misery.

He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.” (Genesis 16:10-12)

God promised Hagar that He would give her innumerable descendants. Today more than 200 million descendants of Ishmael live in the Arab countries surrounding Israel.

We see the hostility between Ishmael’s family and Abram’s family continues today politically. The future of Ishmael’s race (the Arabs) would be unceasingly in conflict with others, the history of the Arabs shows how this prophecy has been fulfilled.

Proof of God – Bible Prophecies Fulfilled – Jewish Nation would be re-established in the year 1948 AD

Jewish Nation would be re-established in the year 1948 AD

Bible passage: Ezekiel 4:3-6
Written: between 593-571 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

“… Then take an iron pan, place it as an iron wall between you and the city and turn your face toward it. It will be under siege, and you shall besiege it. This will be a sign to the house of Israel. “Then lie on your left side and put the sin of the house of Israel upon yourself. You are to bear their sin for the number of days you lie on your side. I have assigned you the same number of days as the years of their sin. So for 390 days you will bear the sin of the house of Israel. “After you have finished this, lie down again, this time on your right side, and bear the sin of the house of Judah. I have assigned you 40 days, a day for each year.” – Ezekiel 4:3-6

This prophecy accurately predicts the re-establishment of Israel in 1948.

How this is worked out:

In Ezekiel 4:3-6, the prophet said the Jews, who had lost control of their homeland, would be punished for 430 years (390 + 40). This prophecy pinpointed the 1948 rebirth of Israel.

Ezekiel said the Jews were to be punished for 430 years because they had turned away from God. As part of the punishment, the Jews lost control of their homeland to Babylon. Many Jews were taken as captives to Babylon.

Babylon was later conquered by Cyrus in about 539 BC. After about three years Cyrus allowed the Jews to leave Babylon and to return to their homeland. But, only a small number returned. The return had taken place sometime around 536 BC.

In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah, the Lord moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and also to put it in writing:

 “This is what Cyrus king of Persia says:

“The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. 3 Any of his people among you may go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem, and may their God be with them. 4 And in any locality where survivors may now be living, the people are to provide them with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the temple of God in Jerusalem.”  – Ezra 3:1-3

Cyrus’ first year is calculated from after the death of Darius – 536 BC. The return had taken place sometime around 536 BC, about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon.

Which meant there was now 360 years of punishment remaining for them (430–70 = 360).

The problem was this, that when given the opportunity to leave Babylon, and return to the Holy Land, most of the exiles chose to stay in pagan Babylon, which was contrary to Gods plan, for God had called the Jews to Israel, where He would work out a divine plan for them, ultimately bringing to fulfillment through them, the promises prophesied to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which was to bring Messiah into the World, also known as the Christ or anointed One (read final section of Daniels World Empires Prophecy to find out more).

Because of this, the remaining 360 years of their punishment was multiplied by 7. The reason is explained in Bible’s book of Leviticus (Leviticus 26:18).

“If after all this you will not listen to me, I will punish you for your sins seven times over.”

(also see Leviticus 26:21, 24, 28)

In Leviticus, it says that if the people did not repent while being punished, the punishment would be multiplied by 7. And, by staying in Babylon, most exiles were refusing to repent.

So, if you take the remaining 360 years (360 also being the number of days in a lunar year) of punishment and multiply by 7, you get 2,520 years (907200 days). But, those years are based on an ancient 360-day lunar calendar.

If those years are adjusted to the modern solar calendar, the result is 2,483 years.

This is because there are 365.25 days in a solar year, so 907200 days divided by 365.25 = 2483 years.  In these calculations we must also take into account that 0 BC is not a year, so we have to add an extra year (like in the Daniel calculation) to get 2484 years.

And, there were exactly 2,484 years from 536 BC to 1948, which is the year that Israel regained independence.

 

Prophecy of Israel being reborn in one day

Bible passage: Isaiah 66:7-8
Written: perhaps between 701-681 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Isaiah 66:7-8, the prophet foreshadowed the re-birth of Israel in 1948. Isaiah describes a woman giving birth before going into labor, and he speaks of a country being born in one day. This accurately describes what happened on May 14, 1948 – when the Jews declared independence for Israel as a united and sovereign nation for the first time in 2900 years.

During that same day, the United States issued a statement recognizing Israel’s sovereignty. And, only hours beforehand, a United Nations mandate expired, ending British control of the land. During a 24-hour span of time, foreign control of the land of Israel had formally ceased, and Israel had declared its independence, and its independence was acknowledged by other nations. Modern Israel was literally born in a single day.

“Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.” – Isaiah 66:7-8

 

Proof of God – Bible Prophecies Fulfilled – Socialsim / Politicial Correctness

Prediction of End-Times Socialism / Political Correctness

Wickedness shall increase

“Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,”

– Matthew 24:12

Never before have there been so many people on the planet – with more people, there is more wickedness, and more unnecessary laws to restrict them.

“the love of most will grow cold” – People in this generation, have less love, friendliness helpfulness to each other, although people are ‘friendly’ on a superficial level – Anyone who lived through the 60’s or 70’s would tell you that the world has truly changed, years ago you could leave your keys in the car and not even worry about it ever been stolen.

The foolish would just get on with everyday life

As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away.

– Matthew 24:37-39

Despite the great changes to the world, there shall still be the status quo, where people get on with ‘everyday life’ etc, closing their eyes to the profound changes to the world, and closing their ears to the warnings.

People would become superficially ‘good’ 

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For people shall be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! – 2 Timothy 3:1-5

This scripture speaks of both Christians and those who are not Christians.

For many Christians (nominal Christians) have the notion that being friendly and going to church is all God requires of them, yet they live just like other normal everyday people.

A people who believe they are good, therefore don’t see the need for correction or repentance – this causes the type of people spoken of in 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

All this typically describes the world today, as shown by the scriptures.

Proof of God – Bible Prophecies Fulfilled – Increase in Earthquakes

Earthquakes 

There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  (Matthew 24:7)

Japanese nuclear explosion in Japan 2011 caused bu Earthquake / Tsunami

The Bible prophesied that the last days would see an increase in the number and severity of earthquakes (Matthew 24:7, Revelation 11:13). In our century we have experienced an unparalleled increase in the frequency and intensity of “killer” earthquakes that register 6.5 or higher on the Richter scale.

Killer earthquakes occurred only once every decade during the 1800’s, according to current statistics; the number of these major earthquakes has increased.

It has to be noted that it is not only the increase and the magnitude of the earthquakes, but also the repercussions of them, for example Japans earthquake caused a nuclear explosion. Although different to Russia’s Chernobyl explosion in 1986, it still caused substantial fallout (this is because when they tried to put out the fire – it caused even more radiation!).

Recent earthquakes:

Haiti Earthquake January 2010 

A magnitude 7 earthquake struck Haiti on January 12 2010 – it reduced much of the capital, Port-au-Prince, to rubble. Haiti’s government reports a total of 316,000 were killed by the quake.

Chile Earthquake 2010:

An 8.8 magnitude earthquake struck Chile in February 27 2010 causing great damage, The earthquake destroyed large parts of Chile’s third-largest city Concepción and its surrounding area. The damage was so great that scientist report it actually change the earth’s axis.

Japanese Earthquake 2011:

On March 11, 2:46pm (Tokyo), a Magnitude 9 earthquake struck Japan, causing a massive tsunami that swept over north Japan causing damage to its main nuclear facility, creating a nuclear explosion.

This had been the fourth or fifth strongest earthquake to be recorded by instrumental seismology, and caused immensely more damage than many other earthquakes.

As can be seen here, the quakes are not only increasing, but are causing more and more damage to nations.

A prophecy about what would come to pass over the next few years, bringing the Messiah to Jerusalem in about AD

Nebuchadnezzers Dream – Daniel 21:31-45

“Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.

“This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; in your hands he has placed all mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds in the sky. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold.

 “After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

 “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands —a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces.

“The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy.”

Note that the diminishing value of the metals from gold to silver to  bronze to iron representing the decreasing grandeur and individual power of the successive kings and their empires. Yet each successive metal was stronger than the previous, indicating that each succeeding empire would last longer than the previous one.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream – How this prophecy is worked out

The great world empires that would dominate the world from the time of Daniel until the end of the age.

The Symbol: Head of gold
The Empire: Babylon (608-538/9 B.C)
The Prophecy: “You are that head of gold” (2:38)

The Babylonian empire under King Nebuchadnezzar was strong, powerful and wealthy, aptly fulfilling the position as the image’s head of gold. As predicted by Jeremiah, Babylon was destroyed within 70 years by the rise of Medo-Persia under the rule of king Cyrus.

The Symbol: Chest of silver
The Empire: Medo-Persia  (538 – 331 B.C)
The Prophecy: “After you, another kingdom will rise, inferior to yours” (2:39)

The second empire was represented as a chest of silver. This indicated that the next empire would be stronger since silver is a stronger metal than gold but of inferior value. True to Nebuchadnezzar’s vision, the Medo-Persians raised enormous armies and were powerful in battle, yet they lacked the nobility and wealth of Babylon. The Medo Persian empire lasted only 207 years until it was destroyed by the armies of Alexander the Great in a climactic battle in 331 B.C.

The Symbol: Belly of Brass
The Empire:
Greece (331- 168 B.C)
The Prophecy:
“Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth” (2:39)

The third world empire was symbolized by brass, a stronger metal than silver but a metal of less value. The Greek empire, based on the democratic governments of the Greek city-states, broke its world empire into four divisions led by Alexander’s four generals.

Alexander the great exacted his revenge on the Persians for the Persian king Xerxes’ earlier attack on Greece. Alexander conquered the known world from the Mediterranean to India with only 32,000 men in less than 10 years.

Greece continued to rule from the borders of India to Europe until 63 B.C when the Roman army successfully attacked Israel and captured the temple. Romes occupation of Palestine marked the end of the Greek empire.

The Symbol: Legs of iron
The Empire: Rome 
(168 B.C – A.D 476)
The Prophecy:
“Finally there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron…iron breaks and smashes everything” (2:40)

The 4th world empire of Nebuchadnezzar’s vision was represented as two strong legs of iron that broke in pieces all which stood before it. This 4th world empire was Rome. One of the characteristics of the Roman empire was its incredible military might, and Rome transformed the various parts of its empire into an enormous military machine. Combining strength with an efficient military and judicial system. Rome ruled the known world longer than any of the other three. 

Rome split into two portions after the rule of emperor Constantine. The western arm of the empire was based in Rome, and the eastern arm of the empire ruled from Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey).  

Barbarians destroyed Rome’s influence in the west in A.D 476, while the eastern arm of the Roman empire became known as the Byzantine empire and continued its rule until its defeat by the Turks in A.D 1453.

The Symbol: Toes of iron and clay
The Empire:
This is the iron (legs) mixed with clay (other nations), this represents Roman rule over other nations, who were not allied to Rome, such as Israel etc…
The Prophecy:
“this will be a divided kingdom…partly strong and partly brittle” (2:41-42)

Iron, rather than being a different metal to the rest of the statue, is the same metal used for the Roman Empire, it means a time when Rome would be integrated with other nations, making it partly strong and partly weak.

No clearer description could be found than the Roman Rule of Israel, because the Jews were completely opposed to the Roman Empire, and the Romans were in control of the country, not understanding Jewish laws and customs etc, remember it was Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, who had Jesus crucified.  Likewise, Rome ruled many countries who were not allied to Rome, those nations who were controlled by Rome had privileges such as Roman citizenship etc, and the Romans had use of the land and resources of the country.

It is in this environment, where the Government was partly strong and partly weak, with Romans ruling over Judea, that the Christ was born in Bethlehem, indeed, it was because of the Roman edict of a census requiring everyone to return to their home town, that Jesus’ parents had to go to Bethlehem.  

The Symbol: Stone cut without hands
The Empire:
Messianic Kingdom –
The Prophecy:
“In the time of those kings (Iron / Clay Empire), the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed” (2:44)

A stone cut without hands basically means – that which is not manmade, that which is made from something higher.  The scripture here reads:

While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them …… In the time of those kings (Iron / Clay rule), the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people.”

Understanding what is meant by:  “The God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom” 

This means that someone not created of man (“a rock was cut out, but not by human hands”), shall set up a new kingdom – the kingdom of God. 

Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit, and a virgin gave birth to the Messiah, the message of Christ was this “The Kingdom of God is upon you” – Therefore this prophecy is speaking about the message found in the four Gospels.

This shall be a kingdom like no other, for it shall be the law of God written on the hearts of those who believe, opposing every world system of philosophy, social goodness, or status-quo etc etc, and would destroy all other kingdoms (ultimately over a period of time).

The fruit of this new kingdom would be a people who could now receive the Holy Spirit from God (because this could not be given – in full measure – to sinners who were not cleansed).  Through Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross, he brought to fulfillment the laws and requirements of God, and took the punishment for the worlds sin on himself, so that those who believe would not have to receive Gods judgment.

This then made a way for God to legally bless those who put their trust in the Messiah (for God is limited by His own integrity and Holiness) – this is why Jesus had to die on the Cross – if he didn’t there would have been no legal way for the entire world to go to heaven (as for those who never heard the gospel – they were held accountable for the light they received – this is another teaching – God requires all people now to believe on Jesus Christ to be saved from Hell, neither is there salvation in any other name.)

The kingdom of God written on people’s hearts is an ongoing kingdom until the return of the Messiah – it shall never be destroyed, and soon all Governments shall bow before Jesus Christ who is Lord, and the new reign of Messiah shall be brought to pass (high probability in our lifetime, as all prophecies are now being brought to pass).  This is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel.

Proof of God – Bible Prophecies Fulfilled – Prediction of a One World Government

Prediction of a One World Government 

“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” – Revelation 17:12-14 

The United Nations was formed in 1945, with the goal to create a One World Government.

Since Israel’s rebirth as a nation in 1948, Europe has now come together as a united federation for economic, trade and security reasons.

In 1948 NATO was formed to defend Europe against the threat of the massed armies of Communist Russia. In 1957 many European nations banded together in a confederation of economic and trade relationships. In 1992 European nations gathered to discuss future moves toward full integration of member economies, utilizing one economic system, a common monetary system as well as a common defense capability and foreign policy – since then, we now have the new European currency – the Euro, which is the prelude to a new world trade system.

Today 27 member states belong to the European Union, creating one of the largest economic, political and military powers in the Western world.

With the creation of the United Nations as well as the New European Union, we now have at least two Establishments that are ready to create a One World Government.

Proof of God – Bible Prophecies Fulfilled – The 666 Microchip

666 The Chip

He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark of the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. Revelation 13:16-18 

This prophecy was given to the Apostle John on the island of Patmos about 95 AD.

666’ is hidden in every Barcode:

666 in barcodes:  The three longer ‘Guidebars’ in every barcode at the beginning, middle and end, include the same code as the number 6 (101) and correspond to the number 6 in width and thickness. Hence “6 6 6” is hidden in every bar code!

“No one can buy or sell without the mark 666” (Rev 13:16-18) – Is this prophecy now being fulfilled ?

This prophecy has already been partially fulfilled, as for about 50 years no one in Europe or America can buy anything without a barcode which contains the number 666 in all commercial barcodes. This is only a prelude to the fulfillment of the 666 mark, which shall probably be some sort of chip implanted in the hand or forehead. People are using 666 for just about everything, and many don’t even know it.

Many people are also being chipped with the verichip from Applied Digital Solutions or Positive ID, which is understood by many to be the prototype of the final 666 chip.

Phases to get to the chip:

Images:

  • The Jacobs were the first family to be chipped
  • The verichip by Applied Digital Solutions.
  • ‘Chipmobile’ – chipping takes no time at all.
  • 2012 Advert from Vodafone Greece, the Logo shows three chips reading 6-6-6. According to this prophecy, one day the final chip shall  be an everyday thing, where you cant buy nothing without it.

Phases to get to the chip:

  • Phase 1: Price Stickers
  • Phase 2: The Barcode
  • Phase 3: Replace Cash with Cards
  • Phase 4:  RFID tags
  • Phase 5: The Implantable RFID Chip
