“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that this day should overtake you like a thief.” 1 Thessalonians 5:4
Just before the Fall of Babylon, Daniel was summoned by King Belshazzar, who was petrified by what he saw and what he did not understand. Belshazzar was having a drinking party using the very vessels taken from the Temple of Jerusalem by his father–King Nebuchadnezzar. At the party a hand appeared and wrote the following on the wall and Daniel gave his interpretation:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. (Daniel 5:25-28)
And so Babylon fell that night and Belshazzar died. However, there is also another way these words are used. A MENE can mean numbered or mina. Likewise, TEKEL meant weighed or shekel. The last word PERES can mean divided or Persia or a half mina. By using the monetary units, a mina is equal to 50 shekels. Two minas (MENE, MENE) then would equal 100 shekels. A half mina (PERES) would be 25 more shekels. Add in the finial shekel (TEKEL) and that makes 126 shekels. According to Ezekiel 45:12, a shekel can also be divided into 20 gerahs. So 126 shekels is equal to 2,520 gerahs.
This number of 2,520 has come into significance from the events surrounding the Babylonian Captivity of the Jews. The events surrounding the establishment of Modern Israel have come at 2520 years from the events surrounding the days of Babylon. These events have shown that Israel is indeed another fulfillment or pattern of the Handwriting on
Israel: The Handwriting on the World was completed at the end of 2013, coming in at 270 pages. This book incorporates discoveries of Signs of the End with new data and conclusions. This book contains 24 chapters and 3 appendices. An e-book is now being offered.
Israel: The Handwriting on the World covers significant historical events often overlooked in most studies on Bible prophecy. It also covers a wide range of topics and approaches that all seem to point towards the same conclusion. Can it all be coincidence? But coincidence is not a kosher word. By watching and numbering the days, the key to the time of the end has been written on the nation of Israel.
