Some people do not believe that the Bible can be believed when it comes to times and dates. Here are a few verses where God speaks in exact language; in fact in Exodus He says that Israel was in Egypt to the very day. God’s plan was for them to be in Egypt for 430 years to the very day and no more or no less.
In Revelation God states that Angels were prepared for a certain task on the hour, the day, the month, and the year. God could not have been more specific than this. God had prepared these Angels from creation for this exact time.
In Daniel God tells the exact number of days that the time of tribulation will last and then adds that those that make it an extra 45 days will be blessed. We can be sure that God created the universe in just six, twenty four hour days. How can we know; because God clearly said so? Times and dates in the Bible are reliable.
Ex12.40 The time that the people of Israel lived in Egypt was 430 years. 41 At the end of 430 years, on that very day, all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.
Rev9.13 Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
Dan12.11 And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days.
