The title is a quandary but that is where I let the keywords lead me this time. The greatest mysteries book, here partially unveiled. The writing you choose to present can be any example narrative story you’d like. The number one book in the World is the Bible. It is also the world’s greatest mystery book.
The Lord boats in Isaiah 46: 8-13, challenging the world “I tell the end from the beginning, from ancient time what is still to come.” Further he says, “I will do whatever I please.” Tell words we can confirm as accurate, with the modern text, from the Dead Sea Scrolls found in 1947 near the Dead Sea.
The Dead Sea Scrolls carbon dating shows 200 BCE for a date of the scrolls, give or take. All the books of the Jewish Bible (Old Testament) were found there except Esther. The antiquity is established fact.
So we know for sure Isaiah wrote the words in chapter 46 above long ago. The Book of Daniel is also among those found and also accurate from antiquity. In chapter 8 of Daniel we are told a narrative of things to come after Daniel inasmuch as four kingdoms would arise.
The angel explained Medo-Persia would defeat Babylonia, then Alexander the Great (Greek Empire) would defeat the Medo-Persians, then a fourth kingdom would rise to power in the middle east.
Here is the text from a modern translation into English:
“I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. 4 I watched the ram as it charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against it, and none could rescue from its power. It did as it pleased and became great.
5 As I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat with a prominent horn between its eyes came from the west, crossing the whole earth without touching the ground. 6 It came toward the two-horned ram I had seen standing beside the canal and charged at it in great rage. 7 I saw it attack the ram furiously, striking the ram and shattering its two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against it; the goat knocked it to the ground and trampled on it, and none could rescue the ram from its power. 8 The goat became very great, but at the height of its power the large horn was broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up toward the four winds of heaven.”
Actual History The Angel Revealed
This lays out world history as told in advance to Daniel by the Angel. We will see why I here, confidently says this. The narrative explains the Seleucid empire after Alexander died. All laid out in my book Misquoting Logic. Free excerpts and the video trailer there with 20% Off discount code.
Jumping ahead to chapter 8: verse 14:
“He said to me, ‘It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.’ ”
Looking at Daniel’s vision we see him standing in Babylon and the first event in his vision is Greece (Alexander the Great) the “rough goat” attacking the ram (Medo Persia). The Battle of Granicus is recorded in history and occurred in 334 B.C. as related in Britannica.
The King James Version (KJV) says 2300 days. But evening mornings is better translation and indicates Passovers the national Jewish Holiday commemorating the Exodus from Egypt.
Confirmed In Our News
History tells us of Granicus and Alexander’s Daring Attack on the Persians and their defeat. Counting 2300 Passovers forward from 334 B.C. we arrive at 1948. The year Israel declared independence on May 14. Eleven minutes later President Harry S, Truman recognized Israel as an independent nation.
The next morning the United Nations chartered Israel as a member nation. Israel miraculously then won their war for independence against the neighboring countries trying to destroy the Jews and their reborn nation after 2,000 years, as Daniel and Isaiah predicted.
“Hear the word of the Lord,
you who tremble at his word:
“Your own people who hate you,
and exclude you because of my name, have said,
‘Let the Lord be glorified,
that we may see your joy!’
Yet they will be put to shame.
6 Hear that uproar from the city,
hear that noise from the temple!
It is the sound of the Lord
repaying his enemies all they deserve.
7 “Before she goes into labor,
she gives birth;
before the pains come upon her,
she delivers a son.
8 Who has ever heard of such things?
Who has ever seen things like this?
Can a country be born in a day
or a nation be brought forth in a moment?
Yet no sooner is Zion in labor
than she gives birth to her children.
9 Do I bring to the moment of birth
and not give delivery?” says the Lord.
“Do I close up the womb
when I bring to delivery?” says your God.
10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her,
all you who love her;
rejoice greatly with her,
all you who mourn over her.
11 For you will nurse and be satisfied
at her comforting breasts;
you will drink deeply
and delight in her overflowing abundance.”
Skeptics Mocked By God
Skeptics have complained for years saying Daniel was written after the historic events he predicted. But we see here he is accurate into the jet age. In my two books we find Daniel is accurate into the Space Age and then into the Information Age. In my book these things are all laid out in detail with historians who wrote about these events contemporaneously with the Battle of Granicus. The words of the Bible make precise hits on the timeline of history. Exactly what and Exactly When and Where.
In my second book, Misquoting Calculus I show nine clear predictions with the math proving the Bible’s reliable accuracy in statistics as a mechanical engineer. This is objective evidence that would stand up in a court of law. Free excerpts there and the Video Book Trailer with 20% Off Code
