A different interpretation. Would you believe 60 different English interpretations? They can’t agree on the Word of God. Who or what can you trust? Numbers? Numbers in the bible somehow survived all the translations. All the versions. All the interpretations. Numbers can help us connect history to the prophecies.
A Reliable Word
A consistent interpretation. Numbers are one of the few things all 60 English versions of the bible agree on. They all agree on “a thousand years”, 666, “ten horns”, and “seven heads” . Can we find historical events that have all these numbers in a meaningful way? Start with the biggest number. A thousand years.
A guide to interpretation. You can trust numbers and maybe colors to be reliably translated. Not so much with the other words. The “words of God” are seen differently by the many different translators. Who can you trust? Historians. What can you trust? Maybe numbers. Historians have trouble with dates but they do get close enough.
A version of each translation. Before the printer, no two bibles were alike. Now no two translations are alike. And there are way too many. About 60 English translations. Each translation has more than one version. So the “Word of God” is subject to translations, revisions, and interpretation. For the most part they agree on numbers.
A Reign of Christ
A big hit on the internet but can’t be found in the bible. The “reign with Christ” can be found in the bible. A thousand year Christian empire can be found where they “reigned with Christ” but the Byzantine Empire is being ignored. It is not a mystery why. Using your interpretation and not history will always lead to a misinterpretation of prophecy.
A prophecy connected to history with a number. Only history can confirm the fulfillment of prophecy and only numbers can be trusted to connect them. Your interpretation cannot be trusted. We all have agendas and your interpretation will reflect them. Nearly all 60 English bible translations somehow agree on numbers. Use them.
A study of the Apocalypse based on history and numbers. No interpretation required. Just numbers connecting history with what has been prophesied. All the major characters identified. They are listed here. This is not the first or the last attempt to do this. You may find it interesting.
A Number of Stars
A common number with 60 different English translations of the bible. Your interpretation can’t be trusted but numbers in the bible can. They can be used to connect historical events to what has been prophesied. Use them all: 1000, 666, 12, 10, 7, and 5.
A prophecy of what is to come. All subject to interpretation by those who have an agenda. Who doesn’t? Only history can confirm the fulfillment of prophecy and only numbers can be trusted to identify those historical events that have been prophesied. Use them along with maybe colors.
A Lack of Agreement
A reason to use numbers and history. All 60 English translations agree on numbers like thousand, 666, ten, seven, and five. There are way too many interpretations on what has been prophesied. Historians have a better record. They are less likely to have an agenda.
