All videos -Audio-bible - The book of Ezra speaks about the rebuilding of the temple of Jerusalem after the Jewish nation had been in bondage in Babylon for 70 years. The anger of some Jews against the Babylonians was very great! Immagine you are taken in captivity because and you are in a strange land, and you cannot come back home year after year. Ten years pass, twenty years and you are still in Babylon unable to go back to Jerusalem! The cause was fully on the side of the children of israel. They sinned and God's was angry with them. Punishment was to be inflicted for them to return to his loving arms. As israel was in the plains of Babylon we read in Psalm 137:9 'happy shall he be that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones'! But when Babylon passed, Medio persia took over. onlinebible, biblegateway audio bible, audio bible gateway,
The king Cyrus told the Jews that were still alive that they could go back to Jerusalem and rebuild the city and the walls! This decree is very important because it was made in 457 A.D. this is the amazing start for the 2300 days prophecy of Daniel 8:14 which points to the coming Messiah 69 prophetic weeks after that and to 1844 when Jesus moved from the holy place to the most holy place in the Heavenly sanctuary in Heaven! Da 8:14 'And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.' onlinebible, biblegateway audio bible, audio bible gateway,
Knowing that in the Bible one prophetic day is one year. 2300 days are 2300 years. 457 + 69 weeks (knowing that in the Jewish calendar months are always 30 days) = 27 A.D. the exact date when Jesus was baptised! Adding one week we arrive in 33 A.D. when Steven was stones to death. In the middle of the week DA 9:24,25 says that Messiah would be cut off in the middle of the week! Jesus was crucified in 27 A.D. So amazing! How could know 500 years in advance the exact year when Jesus would die? Because the bible is true and completely accurate!
