The Book of Exodus is the history of the liberation of the Israelites from the tyranny of Pharaoh.  It tells of the giving of the Law at Mount Sinai, instructions for social justice, for building the Tabernacle, for keeping the Sabbath, and ends with the setting up the Tabernacle.

But in the providence of God there is another purpose for these writings. They are also prophetic of things to come. That we might know by proof of prophetic fulfillment that the words written did not originate in men, but were God-breathed.


For the purpose of our study we read prophecy on a one verse, one year basis. We have already shown when we read the Prophets, and take Isaiah 1 v 1 as 1 AD we follow modern history with astounding accuracy. (See Isaiah). Following Isaiah, modern history continues verse by verse in Jeremiah. (See Jeremiah). Right up to our present day: 2015 is Jeremiah 30 v 2, 2016 is Jeremiah 30 v 3.


The last verse in Genesis is the 1533th verse of the Bible, and therefore corresponds to 1533 AD:

“So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.” (Genesis 50:26)

Joseph is a type of the Catholic Church.  See our paper: ‘I Am Joseph‘.

Egypt represents the land over which Joseph ruled, which in 1533 AD corresponded to Europe.

The Scripture says prophetically in 1533 AD “Joseph died” and “he was put in a coffin”.  How so?

In 1533 AD Pope Clement VII ex-communicated Archbishop Cramner and Henry VIII because they declared the marriage to Catherine Aragon to be ‘null’ and ‘void’ without his permission.

Since Henry VIII was the King of England and Archbishop Cramner was head of the Church, this meant effectively, the Catholic Church severed its ties to all England.  In other words, for England: “Joseph died”.


We can view 1534 AD as the first year of the Independence of England: full self-government.

Why does God place such a critical importance on this historical event that it marks the chapter of a whole new book in the Bible?

Following the Independence of England we can trace the birth of all the modern nations outside of Europe: most importantly the United States of America in 1776 but also all the modern nations in Africa, South America, the Middle East, and even in Asia.

The Book of EXODUS is the historical account of the freedom of the Israelites from Egypt, but it is the prophetic account of the birth of all modern nations from 1534 AD to today.


Using the one-verse one-year method, and starting with Exodus 1 v 1 as 1534 AD, we can match the birth year of every modern nation to a verse in Exodus.

We propose in the Providence of God that the birth of every modern nation is according to the working out of God’s plan in history.

Therefore, in choosing a particular year for a nation to be born, God also matched up that nation with a verse in Exodus which foretells the ultimate destiny of that nation.

We are in the Last Days.  The time of Jacob’s troubles is close at hand.  As has been foretold from long ago we expect global conflict and instability will grip the world.  Out of the anarchy a Man of Lawlessness will come who promises Peace on Earth in return for the submission of all nations to him.

Therefore the time will come when the Exodus is reversed.  All the nations will give up their freedom to go down to Egypt to save their life from the famine.  If they do not do so they will perish.


In 1945 two modern nations were born that have persisted to this day: Vietnam and North Korea.

The 1945th verse in the Bible is Exodus 15 v 24:

“And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?”

Both Vietnam and North Korea are Communist countries.  As a core tenet of their constitution they renounce the existence of a supreme Judeo-Christian God and therefore ascribe no authenticity or relevance to the Law of Moses to the government of men: “the people grumbled against Moses”.  At the same time, their Communist ideology provides no substitute belief in another Higher Being for the people to put their faith in.  The people are left with no faith at all: “What shall we drink?”

In 1948 Israel gained its independence.

The 1948th verse in the Bible is Exodus 15 v 27:

“And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.”

The Israelites had safely passed through the Sea of Reeds, seen the destruction of the army of Pharaoh, and now for a time rested at Elim.  To the Jews, who ever since the first century have had no homeland, surely the tiny state of Israel must have seemed like a paradise indeed!

The prophecy says “they encamped there by the waters”.  The suggestion is the State of Israel is a temporary habitation not a permanent destination.  It says “there were twelve wells of water”.  The State of Israel has had twelve different prime ministers.  Benjamin Netanyahu is the 13th.  It could be under his administration that the State of Israel ceases to be a democracy.  It says: “threescore and ten palm trees”.  If we count 70 years from 1948 that takes us to 2018.  What do the Prophets say about 2018?  The 2,018th verse of the Prophets is Jeremiah 30 verse 5: “This is what the LORD says: ‘Cries of fear are heard – terror, not peace'”
