4 Bible prophecies that came true
There are several ways to see if anything described in the Bible really happened, from evidence of agreement between its various texts, to confirmation through science and archeology. This also holds true for prophecies that, whether by coincidence, divine intervention or just insider information, have come true. Check out!
1. Failure of the Assyrian Siege of Jerusalem
Around the year 701 BC, Sennacherib king of Assyria besieged the region of Judah capturing several cities. Hezekiah, 13th king of Judah, asked the prophet Isaiah what he should do. God's envoy told him that nothing needed to be done, as the siege would go wrong. For unknown reasons (although some say it was a disease), thousands of Assyrian soldiers died and their king was forced to return to his land.
2. Burnt Level
The prophet Nahum describes that the city of Nineveh would be destroyed by fire. Another Bible prophecy to come true. In the nineteenth century, researchers and archaeologists discovered a layer of ash covering the city's ruins. Ancient writings point out that she never recovered, no longer important after 612 BC
3. Chips and European Union
There are people who see everything in the book of Revelation. For example, the part that says that the Beast would emerge from a European power greater than the Roman Empire is interpreted as the European Union.
In chapter 13 it is said that humans must have a mark on their forehead or hand, without which they could not buy or sell anything. Some understand this with a prophecy about RFID chips or some kind of barcode. Ah! This would aim to increase control over the population!
4. Fall of Jerusalem
The prophet Jeremiah shows in his book (the longest the Bible) how the Babylonian rule over Assyria would begin. The whole thing began when Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem (597 BC) and the prophet recommended redemption to the Assyrian ruler. However, this did not happen and 10 years later, both the city and the Temple were destroyed.
Of course, there are many other examples in the Bible involving world wars, earthquakes, the birth of Jesus, the permanent destruction of the Babylonian empire among others. Now, wait for the next prophecy!
