ISRAEL IS 70+~5000 YEARS OF HISTORY!!!!
Numbers in scripture:
SEVENTYis another combination of two of the perfect numbers, seven and ten. We have seen something of the significance of their sum under the number seventeen; their product is no less significant.
As compared with the sum of two numbers, the product exhibits the significance of each in an intensified form.
Hence 7 x 10 signifies perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and significance. Both spirit and order are greatly emphasised.
THE SEVENTY NATIONSwhich peopled the earth are set forth with a particularity which shows the importance of the fact (see Gen 10).
THE SEVENTY SOULS OF GENESIS 46are marked not only by the perfection of spiritual truth, as seen by the multiple of 7, but by the perfection of Divine order, as seen in the multiple of 10, seventy being 7 x 10.
We stop not to notice the number given in Acts 7:14, which is different because it refers to a different classification, viz., “all his kindred,” which amounted to 75. In Genesis 46:26, God is speaking of another class, viz., only those “which came out of his loins”; these were seventy in number.
This number is made up in a remarkable manner, distinguishing the descendants of Leah and her maid from Rachel and her maid,* the latter being a more marked multiple of 7:—
* The gematria of their names is just as remarkable. See pp. 210, 211.
|The Children of Leah
|(Only 32 are named, because one, viz., Jochebed,* the mother of Moses, though conceived, was not born till Egypt was reached (Num 26:59), and therefore could not be named here.)
|The children of her maid Zilpah
|Together (though not separately) making a multiple of 7
|The children of Rachel
|The children of her maid Bilhah
|Making separately and together a multiple of seven
* The gematria of her name is 42 (6×7), for though of Divine calling she was very human.
These seventy built up the nation of Israel. See Genesis 46:27; Exodus 1:5 and Ruth 4:11.
Seventy elders furnished Israel’s great Tribunal, Exodus 24:1; Numbers 11:16, afterwards called the Sanhedrim. See below, under the next number (120).
Seventy disciples sent out by the Lord prefigure the mighty host which followed them (Luke 10:1,17) in spirit and in power.
It is the number specially connected with
JERUSALEMfor the city kept its sabbaths seventy years, while Judah was in Babylon, Jeremiah 35:11.
And seventy sevens were determined upon it to complete its transgression, and bring in everlasting righteousness for it, Daniel 9:24 (see pp. 5, 6, 7,).
Israel Kills 41, Wounds 1,700 Gazans In “Terrible Massacre” As US Opens Jerusalem Embassy
Palestinians say 43 killed, including terror operatives, as 50,000 rally in Gaza
Army shoots men planting bomb, strikes Hamas post after gunmen fire at troops; protesters hurl rocks, burn tires ahead of US embassy inauguration; IDF vows to prevent border breach
Forty-three Palestinians were killed Monday in violent clashes with Israeli forces along the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel, Palestinians said, in a burst of bloodshed that cast a cloud over Israel’s festive inauguration of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem.
It was the deadliest day in Gaza since the devastating cross-border war between the territory’s Hamas rulers and Israel in 2014.
Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry said 43 Palestinians were killed and over 500 were wounded in the violence, amid the biggest riots and rallies in a weeks-long campaign of protests against Israel.
The Israeli army said around 50,000 Gazans were demonstrating in 12 locations along the border. It said thousands more were gathered at points several hundred meters from the fence.
At around 4 p.m., the time that the US was inaugurating its embassy in Jerusalem, military sources said Hamas-spurred groups were trying to breach the border at several spots along the Gaza fence.
The army said three of those killed were trying to plant explosives at the border fence. In two separate incidents, IDF troops opened fire on gunmen who were trying to shoot them, Hadashot TV said.
The army also said aircraft struck a Hamas post after gunmen there opened fire on troops. There were no injuries among the soldiers. Reports said the IAF also struck five targets in the Jabaliya area.
The IDF confirmed it carried out a series of airstrikes in Gaza “in response to the violent acts of the last few hours being carried out by Hamas along the security fence.”
“A short while ago, an IAF fighter jet struck five terrorist targets in a military training facility belonging to the Hamas terror organization in the northern Gaza Strip,” the army said in a statement Monday afternoon.
“In addition, earlier today, an IAF aircraft and an IDF tank targeted two additional military positions belonging to the Hamas terror organization in the northern Gaza Strip. These strikes were conducted in response to the incident in which IDF forces were fired upon by Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip,” the statement added, saying that 40,000 Palestinians were participating in violent riots in 13 locations along the Gaza Strip security fence.
The Gaza health ministry said 43 Palestinians had been killed and more than 5,000 injured in the clashes.
“The IDF operates with determination in order to prevent massive terror activities constantly being led by the Hamas terror organization in. Each act of terror will be met with a harsh response,” the army said.
Israeli special forces flown south by helicopter as Gaza riots escalate
Israeli special forces were flown by helicopter on Monday afternoon, May 14, to the Israeli-Egyptian border region to thwart Palestinian plans to kidnap soldiers and civilians. Egypt also placed its Gaza border on high alert, after the IDF killed three armed Palestinians when they were caught planting an explosive device on the border fence at Rafah at the southern tip of the Gaza Strip on the Egyptian border.
The IDF forces guarding the Gaza border fence, ramped up to 12 battalions, continue to fend off spiraling Palestinian attempts to break through for terrorist attacks and attempts to snatch hostages. It is also feared that undiscovered Hamas terror tunnels may also deposit terrorists inside Israeli communities. For the first time in the eight-week Hamas rampage on the Gaza-Israeli border, an Israeli aircraft fired at an armed Hamas position near the Gaza town of Jebalia in reprisal for gunfire on Israeli troops.
As the day wore on, the masses rioting along the Israeli border swelled in number to around 40,000, concentrated in 12 rallying points at the fence. Gangs are throwing explosive devices and burning containers at the Israeli troops. In early afternoon, the Palestinians reported 44 dead from Israeli gunfire and hundreds injured. Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkot is in constant touch with the field commanders.
China’s First Domestically-Built Aircraft Carrier Begins Sea-Trials
Late last month, we suggested that Beijing’s first domestically built aircraft carrier would begin sea trials “imminently.” Pictures and video from Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Company, located in Dalian, Liaoning province, China, the largest shipbuilding company in the country, showed the aircraft carrier, so far known as Type 001A (CV-17), preparing for its first independently powered foray at sea.
In a new announcement from the Defence Ministry, the still-unnamed vessel (Type 001A) exited the port outside the Dalian shipyard at 5:30 am on Sunday morning — embarking on its first sea trial. A military strategist told the Global Times, “the trial will mainly test basic system functionality and carrier-based aircrafts will participate in combat trials after the carrier is formally delivered to China’s navy.”
