plan and His timetable are perfect.
it is written in the Book of Leviticus that
God made a covenant with His people at Mt. Sinai in the wilderness and
the conditions of the covenant were these:
26:3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
great national blessings would follow, vs. 4-13.
26:14 But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;
great national cursings would follow, vs. 15-23.
stated that if they "would not hearken unto Him" that
He would chastise them for "seven times" and
would scatter them among the nations.
"time" is a solar year of 360 days, just
as the "time, times, and half a time" of Dan. 12:7 is
the same as 1260
days in Revelation.
we learn from the great prophet Ezekiel in chapter 4, vs. 6, that
when the subject is Israel's punishment, then
a day is given to represent one year.
"seven times" would be 7 x 360 years (not days, in this case) or
is the prophecy announcing that period of chastisement:
26:28 Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will
chastise you seven times for your sins.
And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after
you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.
is where it truly gets exciting! The
2520 years would commence with the captivity of each of the tribes of Israel.
space here does not permit an in-depth study of the migrations of the tribes
of Israel, a subject for another time, and surely a foundation essential
to understanding prophecy. But you will find that the Birthright Blessings
contained in the covenant that God made with Abraham were eventually split
between Joseph's two sons Ephraim and Manasseh. It is very easy to document
that England represents Ephraim, a company of nations, and the United States
represents Manasseh, who literally became 13th tribe of Israel, a great
people, (Gen 48). That is why the number 13 is stamped on our nation's
history, i.e. 13 original colonies, 13 original states, etc.
challenge anyone on this! Look up the date
of the captivity of the tribe of Manasseh by the king of Assyria!

Missing Links Discovered In Assyrian Tablets E. Raymond Capt 256
When clay cuneiform tablets were found in the excavations of the Assyrian
Royal Library of Ashurbanipal in ancient Nineveh, their relevance
to the nation of Israel was overlooked at the time. This was undoubtedly
because they were in complete disorder and among hundreds of miscellaneous
text dealing with many matters of State. Contributing to this situation
was the fact that the Assyrians called the Israelites by other names
during their captivity. Some of the tablets found were dated around 707
B.C. and reveal the fate of the Israelites as they escaped from the land
of their captivity and "disappeared" into the hinterland of Europe.
These tablets form the "Missing Links" that enable us to identitfy the
modern-day descendants of the "Lost Tribes of Israel". In doing so,
we increase our knowledge of Bible history and experience a dramatic revision
of our pre-conceived ideas of Bible prophecy. In this authoritative book,
the author has attempted no more than a brief review of the origin
and history of the Israelites; a survey of the Assyrian inscriptions and
cuneiform tablets that record the deportations of Israel as related
to Biblical and secular history; their sojurn in captivity, and a synopsis
of their migrations to their new homelands. Other authors fill in the details.
will find that Tiglath-pileser III in 745 BC records the conquest of Israel and
mentions the exact area where Manasseh had been settled.
you add 2520 years to this date, you arrive at July 4th, 1776.

have often said that the Industrial Revolution could not, and
did not, occur until the American Revolution had occurred.
2520 years had to expire and begin the time when true Israel would
no longer be the "tail", but would become the "head" of nations, which
is to say the superpower of superpowers.
