Convergence Bible Timeline
I find it fascinating that much of Bible Prophecy centers on the re-establishment of Israel as a nation. Not only is prophecy being fulfilled it seems like it is all converging at the same time. My blog here is observational and not the result of intense study of the Bible Timeline. As always I recommend you do your own Bible studying and never just take the word of a singular author on the internet. This is just meant to be a head scratcher.
Israel was crushed by the Romans in A.D. 70 and Jesus told his Apostles (Matthew24:2)
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
He wasn’t wrong.
This lasted until 1947 when the UN created the Partition Plan (Resolution 181) and then subsequently on May 14th, 1948, Israel declared itself a state. The Bible itself foretold of this in Isaiah 66:8
8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
Israel was indeed created in one day. You can go on and on with this as well as it is a focal point of Biblical prophecy. Even the Hebrew language which had been dormant for about 2000 years sprang back to life.
If you look at the modern day UN and the myriad of resolutions that they pass AGAINST Israel, I wonder if they don’t kick themselves for their large part in ESTABLISHING Israel.
Tick Tock Goes The Prophecy Clock
Now that Israel is a Nation again the dust shakes off the prophecy clock and things start to ramp up considerably. In Daniel 12:24 it states
‘But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.’
So, in the end times people are running to and fro all over the earth. Let’s talk about that for a minute. The airplane was invented in 1903, and used in WW1. It wasn’t until 1927 that Lindbergh made the 1st TransAtlantic solo flight. Aviation started hopping just prior to WW2 and probably the 1st successful passenger line was the Pan Am Clipper in 1938. Subsequently after the completion of WW2, is when air travel began to increase exponentially.
This corresponds ROUGHLY with the establishment of Israel.
And Knowledge Shall Increase
A technical statement if ever there were one. In 1943 the first device we would call an electronic, programmable computer was built. The ENIAC.
Again, we are ROUGHLY around the same time frame. Travel and computers begin to explode after this.
What Else Happens in 1947-48?
While the UN was working on Resolution 181 which ultimately passed in late 1947 a Flying Saucer supposedly crashed at Roswell in July 1947. While UFO’s have been reported throughout history, this was the first time there seemed to be definitive proof in the US press which quickly turned the story on itself. Prior to this in 1942 was the “Battle of Los Angeles”. In 1952 UFO’s were seen over the White House for a couple of weeks.
At any rate the UFO phenomenon explodes at ROUGHLY the same time the UN is working on the Partition Plan. And then it increases all the way to this day.
Many Christians believe that aliens are not from other worlds but are inter-dimensional beings aka Fallen Angels or Demons.
More Modern Convergence Of The Bible Timeline
In my last blog I talked about 1 Timothy 4:3 where it says in the latter days that people would command you to abstain from meats. While nobody has commanded me yet you definitely see that trend.
The BRICS nations are developing a new digital currency backed by gold which is pretty epic.
In response to Luke 21:11 we have the following:
10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Russia, Iran, and Syrian forces are ramping up against US base and troop surges in Syria just this week. Just yesterday the US sent aircraft and ships near the Straits of Hormuz in response to Iranian aggression in those shipping lanes. Israel, Hamas, and Hezbollah are dangerously close to more direct military action.
In 2021 and 2022 there were nearly 2000 more earthquakes than in previous years. And in Feb of this year (2023) there was an earthquake in Turkey and Syria that killed almost 60,000 people.
I’m not saying the end is near and I’m certainly not setting any dates. But not only are things that were prophesied about happening, but they are happening in rapid succession after the rebirth of Israel as a nation. Christians who study prophecy are not surprised by this at all.
Those new to this would be wise to study Daniel, Isaiah, Jesus’s Olivet Discourse and many other prophetic verses. The Bible timeline of prophecy is intriguing.
