A Reliable Connection
A prophecy fulfilled with history. Only history can confirm the fulfillment of prophecy. Only numbers can reliably connect history to prophecy. All the bible translators agree on numbers and colors. You can’t trust interpretation. Only numbers and colors. Use them.
A Translation Problem
A commander or another interpretation problem if you are looking for the king of the north. There are eight different words in 52 different translations: princes 24, commanders 10, officers 7, officials 5, generals 2, leaders 2, principalities 1, subordinates 1. The word prince suggests a family member unlike the other seven words which have a similar meaning. Makes you wonder about words used in other parts of the bible. These are major differences in words used before you get to the problem of interpreting them. Reader beware.
A Version of God’s Word
A searchable bible. That’s the good news. The bad news is we can’t agree on which version to use. We have 60 different translations just for the English language. The differences too often are significant. Is there anything we can agree on? Yes. Numbers and colors. A way to tie history to prophecy.
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 historical event. Only history can confirm the fulfillment of a prophecy. Based on your interpretation. Can it be trusted? Can your bible translation be trusted? Can 60 different English translations of the bible be trusted? They don’t agree on the “word of God”. Do they agree on anything? Maybe numbers.
A Him Or An It
A translation problem. Can you find the beast if you are looking for a “him” instead of an “it”? In Revelation 13:1; 20 have “his horns”, 20 have “its horns”, 15 have “It had ten horns” . We need Daniel 7:7 to clear this up. “it had ten horns” is a clear winner. You need to look for an “it” and not a “him” to find the beast. It makes a difference.
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 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 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.
