I asked him, in the time we had together, did he still agree with that statement? When we talk about Hamas in the south, Prime Minister Netanyahu believes that they have to be dealt with. They have not ever agreed that they would recognize Israel has a right to be a state among the states in the entire Middle East. And their armed struggle is what they continually call for, to wipe Israel off of that land that they say is their Palestinian State. The leader of Hezbollah, Nasrallah, Sheik Nasrallah, he has a driving desire to be the leader of, I believe, Lebanon, politically, and then to destroy Israel and fulfill the desires of who sent him there back in , the late Ayatollah Khomeini.
Why, biblically, is this coming against this little nation? DeYoung: Because God has promised them a piece of real estate. There are 38 locations in the Bible that talk about the biblical borders of Israel. It would include the countries of half of Egypt, from the Nile River all the way up to the Gaza Strip; all of Israel; all of Lebanon to the Euphrates River; then going southeastward down towards the Persian Gulf, would take in all of Syria; all of Jordan; would take in three quarters of Iraq; would take in all of Kuwait; three quarters of Saudi Arabia.
Ten times what the Jewish people have today. God has promised to give them this land, yet in the future, when He sets up His kingdom. And that refers to the first pillar in the book of Revelation, which is the event of the rapture, which comes. Starting chapter 6, we start the time of Tribulation that goes for 16 chapters there. DeYoung: You know, John, chapter 11 names the nations that will come against Israel. Chapter 6 in the book of Revelation deals with the event that will happen.

Peace will be taken from this world; that is going to happen. Both of these prophecies, ready to be fulfilled. We want this information to actually point them to Jesus, the Savior of the world, because God wants all people to come into a relationship with His Son. How can they do that? The prophecies in the word of God are at the point of fulfillment. What is happening today is setting the stage for the return of Jesus Christ, the return back to the earth, which is at least seven years from now; before that, the rapture of the church.
Now, how do you live in light of that? And what about your loved ones, your family, your friends, your workmates, your school buddies? Ezekiel was made a prophet and a watchman. And third, you have this terrible time of Tribulation. And you need three events, you need the tyrant, you need the treaty, this peace treaty with Israel, and then you need one more, you need the temple. The Jewish temple has to be rebuilt in Jerusalem. When we were in Jerusalem, we went and actually filmed the preparations that are being made to build the Jewish temple right now, okay.

Stay Connected With Us. Eventually, Alexander expanded the Greek empire south into Egypt and east as far as India. It was an enormous accomplishment and the Greek empire was at a zenith. But Alexander died at the height of his career. The next two verses predicted that the Greek empire would be divided among four generals, and history records that actually occurred. The reader should review the supporting study called Hooked By a Dream for the historical dating of the book of Daniel. The evidence reveals that the book of Daniel was written before these events occurred.
And a mighty king will arise, and he will rule with great authority and do as he pleases. But as soon as he has arisen, his kingdom will be broken up and parceled out toward the four points of the compass, though not to his own descendants, nor according to his authority which he wielded; for his sovereignty will be uprooted and given to others besides them. The prophecy states that the four generals did not have the power and the skill of Alexander the Great, but they divided the empire into four parts and began to rule as kings.
History tells us that the empire was divided among Lysimachus, Cassander, Seleucus, and Ptolemy. Lysimachus obtained Thrace. Cassander acquired Macedonia. Seleucus governed Syria, Babylon, Persia, and India. This prophecy and history agree. Daniel 11 now focuses on two generals, Ptolemy I Soter and Seleucus I Nicator, and the kings who will come after them. These two new empires will wage war against one another for about years. Seleucus I Nicator was king of the upper northern regions of the old Medo-Persian empire.
His empire included Babylon in B. In return Seleucus I supported Ptolemy. Then the king of the South will grow strong, along with one of his princes who will gain ascendancy over him and obtain dominion; his domain will be a great dominion indeed. Together, Ptolemy and Seleucus grew strong. Eventually, there was a battle in the Gaza region and Antigonus the One-eyed was defeated.
Seleucus and Antigonus continued fighting until B. Seleucus continued to expand his empire until it included most of Asia Minor. His empire was very large extending from Asia Minor on the west and into India in the east. Seleucus was more powerful and his empire was larger than that of Ptolemy I Soter.
After some years they will form an alliance, and the daughter of the king of the South will come to the king of the North to carry out a peaceful arrangement.
But she will not retain her position of power, nor will he remain with his power, but she will be given up, along with those who brought her in and the one who sired her as well as he who supported her in those times. Dan In B. The treaty required Antiochus to divorce his wife Laodice in order to marry Bernice. Within four years Ptolemy II died. Antiochus then decides to divorce Bernice and remarry Laodice, who then poisoned Antiochus, and murdered Bernice and those who came with her from Egypt.
What does verse 6 say would happen? The passage predicted that an alliance would take place. A peaceful arrangement would be carried out when the daughter of the king of the south went to the king of the north. But she would die later along with those who came with her. This prophecy agrees with history very accurately. But one of the descendants of her line will arise in his place, and he will come against their army and enter the fortress of the king of the North, and he will deal with them and display great strength.
Also their gods with their metal images and their precious vessels of silver and gold he will take into captivity to Egypt, and he on his part will refrain from attacking the king of the North for some years. Dan NAS95S. He was so angry that his teenage sister had been murdered that he took military action against the Seleucid empire and murdered Laodice in revenge.
He captured Syria for Egypt and plundered the northern empire of a vast amount of wealth and stole their gods.

This was an insult to the Seleucid empire. Then the latter will enter the realm of the king of the South, but will return to his own land. His sons will mobilize and assemble a multitude of great forces; and one of them will keep on coming and overflow and pass through, that he may again wage war up to his very fortress. Antiochus gathered an army of 62, infantry, 6, cavalry, and elephants.
Egyptian control had extended up to the Seleucid empire including all of Palestine. Consequently, he pushed Egyptian control back to the fortress at Raphia. He was a man given to comfort and a life of ease. But his army was unsuccessful. Then he and his sister-wife, Arsinoe, gathered a large army of 70, infantry, 5, cavalry, and 73 elephants and defeated Antiochus at Raphia in B. And shall become the furious the king of the south and will go out and fight with him, with the king of the north. And he shall raise a host great. And shall be given the host into his hand. Literal Hebrew. Now we understand that Ptolemy was predicted to be successful against Antiochus.
This agrees with history. Ptolemy was happy with his great victory over Antiochus because he killed 10, infantry, cavalry, and 5 elephants, and took 4, prisoners. He pushed Antiochus out of Palestine and then made peace. He had the advantage and did not secure his victory but decided to return home to comfort and his life of ease. History says that Ptolemy pursued a life of pleasure. During B. But Antiochus had avoided Egypt until he heard that the thirty-five year old Ptolemy IV Philopator and his wife had died and a four year boy, Ptolemy V Epiphanes, was the new king.
Antiochus considered this to be wonderful news. After he made an agreement with Philip V of Macedonia, together they brought their armies against Egypt. Some Jews had attempted to help Antiochus defeat the Egyptians, but they were defeated.
The Bible’s Most Amazing Prophecies
After the battle at Panias, the Egyptian commander Scopas led his army to Sidon. There Antiochus used siege works to capture the city. Egypt was defeated. What a sad picture of the human heart. We have seen men and women killing each other. Now we see a man taking advantage of a child. When given the opportunity, men and women often do just what they want. The Jews were glad to be free of the Egyptians. All of these prophecies had specific dates and timelines associated with them in the Bible, and all were fulfilled exactly as they were predicted — many to the exact day — even though their fulfillment was often thousands of years later.
These prophecies are amazing because unlike more generic prophecies such as the fall of certain world empires or moral decay in the end times , there can be no question that these prophecies were divinely inspired and positively prove that the Bible is unique among all other works. My purpose in writing this article is to provide an overview of a few of these prophecies, and to show how they were fulfilled exactly as predicted to demonstrate the power of prophecy in the Bible.
First, the prophecies cited in this article come from the Old Testament and were delivered by prophets years before the coming of Christ. At this time, of course, the Christian also known as the Julian and then subsequently Gregorian calendar had not yet been invented. The calendar used by the prophets was the Jewish calendar, which is very different than our own. It is lunar-solar and has only twelve months of thirty days each, for a total of days a year, as opposed to the solar year used by us today which consists of This difference in the length of a Jewish year from our own solar year is important to keep in mind when evaluating prophecies in the Bible that have specific, measurable time frames that can be computed.
Failure to take this into account has frequently confused people through time and led to miscalculations and misinterpretations of prophecy. The second important point to keep in mind when calculating timelines in the Bible is that there was no year zero on the Christian calendar — we went directly from 1 B. Adjusting for this requires that we add a year when converting from the Jewish calendar to the Christian calendar when the period in question crosses the 1 B. In the Old Testament days, after the time of David and Solomon, the ancient nation of Israel fell into decline and turned away from God.
This judgment was certain destruction of the nation by the hands of foreign invaders if Israel did not turn from its wicked ways. The people of Israel did not listen to the prophets and continued to disobey, so God sent Babylon to invade and destroy the nation Jeremiah , One of the most interesting prophecies regarding this captivity was given by the prophet Jeremiah the year Israel was taken captive by Babylon. In this prophecy, Jeremiah predicted that the captivity would last seventy years, after which, the Israelites would return to the city of Jerusalem Jeremiah , Was Jeremiah correct in his prediction?
Was the Bible accurate in this case? To understand these events, we need look no further than a history book or a common encyclopedia. From these, we learn that the nation of Israel encountered three separate sieges by the Babylonians:. A complete timeline of these, and other events mentioned in this article, is contained in the appendix. In October, B. The city of Babylon itself fell without a battle when the Medes and Persians diverted the water of the Euphrates River flowing through the city and, marching at night under the gates of the city, captured it while the Babylonian king was throwing a large feast.
Both the secular historians Herodotus and Xenophon describe this event as did the prophet Daniel Daniel 5. Cyrus II, the king of the Media-Persian Empire, established a new, enlightened policy of peaceful relationships throughout the empire and in B. It was this policy that allowed Cyrus to expand the Empire and still administer and control far-off nations.
About 50, Jews left Babylon in B. The prophecy from Jeremiah states that the captivity would last 70 years after which the Israelites would return to the city of Jerusalem. If we convert from the Jewish calendar to the Christian calendar by multiplying 70 by and then dividing by Starting from June-August B. From history, we can clearly see that this was the case — the people of Israel were indeed taken captive in B. Clearly, Jeremiah was a prophet of the true God. The rebirth of Israel as a country in after 2, years of dispersion is a hallmark event in Bible prophecy.
Many Old Testament prophets foresaw this event and many people are familiar with these prophecies. When Israel became a nation again on May 14, , it marked the first time since AD 70 that the people of Israel had a nation to call their own. It marked the first time since BC that Israel had its own sovereign nation, which was not under the control of another world power. The importance of this event cannot be overestimated — no other nation in history has ever ceased to exist for centuries and then returned as a nation to its former land to regain its place in world history — and the Bible predicted this is exactly what would occur, thousands of years before it happened.
However, as remarkable as it was for the nation of Israel to be reborn at all, it was even more remarkable that the nation was reborn on the exact day in history when the Bible said it would be! To understand this prophecy, we must look to the prophet Ezekiel. In B.
