the year 1948 Predicted in the bible concerning the restoration of the State of Israel!!

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

In Ezekiel 4:3-6 the prophet said the Jew who had lost control of their homeland would be punished for 430 years. This prophecy according to Bible scholar Grant Jeffrey pinpointed the 1948 rebirth of Israel. Here's a summary of Jeffrey's theory:

1. 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.

2. Babylon was later conquered by Cyrus in 539 BC. 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 about 70 years after Judah lost independence to Babylon.

3. Because most of the exiles chose to stay in pagan Babylon rather than return to the Holy Land the remaining 360 years of their punishment was multiplied by 7. The reason is explained in Bible's book of Leviticus. (Leviticus 26:18 26:21 26:24 and 26:28). 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 pagan Babylon most exiles were refusing to repent.

4. So if you take the remaining 360 years of punishment and multiply by 7 you get 2520 years. But Jeffrey says those years are based on an ancient 360-day lunar calendar. If those years are adjusted to the modern solar calendar the result is 2484 years.

5. And there were exactly 2484 years from 536 BC to 1948.
