A Fulfillment of Prophecy –
A connection with numbers that can be trusted. Your interpretation, not so much. Translators can’t be trusted but somehow they get the numbers right. If you have an ear, listen to what numbers and history can tell you. It is the only way the fulfillment of prophecy can be confirmed. Anything else is just someone’s interpretation.
A History –
A fulfillment of prophecy verified with numbers that don’t require interpretation. There are over 50 English translations of the bible that agree on numbers. Big numbers like a thousand is the place to start. There is only one Christian empire that lasted a thousand years and it fits.
A Starting Point –
A thousand years in history where they reigned with Christ. The “reign of Christ” cannot be found in the bible. Only on the internet. Go figure. Start with the big number. There’s only one. No interpretation required. The smaller numbers are not so hard to find.
A Fit with Numbers
A thousand year empire starting with the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire and ending with the tenth dynasty of Islam. The first beast, Rome, whose deadly wound was healed was replaced by the second beast Islam. The Byzantine Empire fits with all the numbers you can trust. You can’t trust interpretation.
A Mystery –
A misinterpretation. Even Peter knew he was in Babylon. Some are still looking for his bones south of Baghdad. That is the real mystery but Rome having seven hills was never a mystery. The seven hills of Constantinople is still a mystery and likely to remain so. It will never fit with their narrative.
A Prophecy Fulfilled In History –
A number to connect them. Numbers have survived translation errors and agenda driven interpretations. Numbers can be reliably used to identify historical events that seem to fulfill prophecies. Look for all the key numbers like a thousand, 666, ten, and seven. See if they fit. See if they make sense.
A Reliable Connection –
A translation problem, with so many different bibles, is further aggravated by interpretation issues that force most prophecies into the future. Numbers are the only way to reliably connect historical events to what has been prophesied. Start with a big number like a thousand years. There is only one where they reigned with Christ. The Byzantine Empire.
A Fulfillment Of Prophecy In History –
A number to connect them. A reliable way to find historical events that seem to fulfill what has been prophesied. There are way too many different interpretations of too many different translations of the bible to confirm any fulfillment of prophecy. Numbers may be the only way to connect history with prophecy.
A Newton Project –
A commentary on the Apocalypse. “Amongst the Interpreters of the last age there is scarce one of note who hath not made some discovery worth knowing; and thence I seem to gather that God is about opening these mysteries. The success of others put me upon considering it; and if I have done any thing which may be useful to following writers, I have my design.” Interesting.
A Vision Repeated –
A problem with interpretation. There is an unfounded assumption that the chapters of the Apocalypse are in chronological order which makes it impossible to understand. Each vision does not necessarily depend on the previous or following chapter. This was understood by Victorinus in the third century. It is called Recapitulation.
