You be the Judge.
Is this a mathematical prophecy!
The Prophecy ... Ezekiel 4:4-6
Eze 4:4 “Then lie on your left side and put the sin of the people of Israel upon yourself.[fn] You are to bear their sin for the number of days you lie on your side.
Eze 4:5 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 people of Israel.
Eze 4:6 “After you have finished this, lie down again, this time on your right side, and bear the sin of the people of Judah. I have assigned you 40 days, a day for each year.
Here, we find God telling Ezekiel that each day he (Ezekiel) lies on his side will represent one year of punishment for the nation Israel (Israel + Judah) because of their iniquities (sins) against God, So, we have:
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
The Fulfillment of the Prophetic Judgment Begins
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
There should have been a total of 360 years left 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?
Well, it was found out by searching the scriptures diligently!
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 ...
Lev 26:14 “ ‘But if you will not listen to me and carry out all these commands,
Lev 26:15 and if you reject my decrees and abhor my laws and fail to carry out all my commands and so violate my covenant,
then I will do this to you: I will bring on you sudden terror, wasting diseases and fever that will destroy your sight and sap your strength. You will plant seed in vain, because your enemies will eat it.
I will set my face against you so that you will be defeated by your enemies; those who hate you will rule over you, and you will flee even when no one is pursuing you.
“ ‘If after all this you will not listen to me, I will punish you for your sins seven times over.
I will break down your stubborn pride and make the sky above you like iron and the ground beneath you like bronze.
Your strength will be spent in vain, because your soil will not yield its crops, nor will the trees of your land yield their fruit.
“ ‘If you remain hostile toward me and refuse to listen to me, I will multiply your afflictions seven times over, as your sins deserve.
I will send wild animals against you, and they will rob you of your children, destroy your cattle and make you so few in number that your roads will be deserted.
Lev 26:23 “ ‘If in spite of these things you do not accept my correction but continue to be hostile toward me,
Lev 26:24 I myself will be hostile toward you and will afflict you for your sins seven times over.
Lev 26:25 And I will bring the sword on you to avenge the breaking of the covenant. When you withdraw into your cities, I will send a plague among you, and you will be given into enemy hands.
Lev 26:26 When I cut off your supply of bread, ten women will be able to bake your bread in one oven, and they will dole out the bread by weight. You will eat, but you will not be satisfied.
Lev 26:27 “ ‘If in spite of this you still do not listen to me but continue to be hostile toward me,
Lev 26:28 then in my anger I will be hostile toward you, and I myself will punish you for your sins seven times over.
Lev 26:33 I will scatter you among the nations and will draw out my sword and pursue you. Your land will be laid waste, and your cities will lie in ruins.
Israel disobeyed and they had to serve 7 times the remaining punishment period! So! Let's go!
Let apply the 7 times the 360 years left of their punishment and see when they will finally pay their debt to Jehovah.
360 Remaining years of judgment
x 7 The prophetic '7 times added for disobedience
= 2,520 years of Judgement left for Israel
God gave the Jews the most sophisticated calendar on Earth. It is both a Lunar and a Solar calendar. The Jewish calendar uses a 360-day lunar (and prophetic) year and then adds a 'Leap Month' on specific years to accurately coincide with the Solar cycle we use on our 'Julian' calendar ...
The Bible uses 360 day years for prophecies and expects us to add the appropriate 'leap months' on schedule. So, the easiest way to unravel this prophecy is to first convert this prophecy into days ...
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
