1290 + 1335 years to the day
from the Prophecy of Ezekiel 31
A prophecy about Egypt and her king;
but is God saying the same thing to America?
Selected verses from Ezek. 31 (NIV)
"Who can be compared with you in majesty?
Consider Assyria, once a cedar in Lebanon, with beautiful branches overshadowing the forest; it towered on high, its top above the thick foliage. The waters nourished it...It towered higher than all the trees of the field...It was majestic in beauty, with its spreading boughs, for its roots went down to abundant waters...
Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because it towered on high lifting its top above the thick foliage, and because it was proud of its height, I handed it over to the ruler of the nations, for him to deal with according to its wickedness. I cast it aside, and the most ruthless of foreign nations cut it down and left it...Therefore no other trees by the waters are ever to tower proudly on high, lifting their tops above the thick foliage. No other trees so well watered are ever to reach such a height; they are destined for death...
I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit." (And see whole prophecy).
For years I have been tracking world events 945,000 days from the siege of Jerusalem, (589-586 BC). It was for this very reason that I happened upon this passage of Scripture. I noticed the obvious parallels between the "towering tree" of Ezek. 31 with that of the pride of America embodied in the Twin Towers only after I had counted back the 945,000 days. However, I do not believe that the 'king of Egypt' in this passage refers to the President of the United States. The culminative fulfillment of Ezek. 31 is still future.
(The siege of Jerusalem that led to her exile figures largely among the prophets. "945,000 days" is 1290 + 1335 years [Dan. 12:12], and a great deal more as we shall see!)
Ezekiel received his prophecy on Tue. May 17, Sivan 1, 587 BC:
"And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me..." (Ezek. 31:1).
From this date, until Tues. Sept. 11, 2001, are exactly 945,000 days.

And what is so special about 945,000 days?
945,000 days is 1290 + 1335 years
(of 360 days in a year of the well known prophetic calendar). 1290 + 1335 = 2625, times 360 days = 945,000 days.
1290 + 1335 are the two numbers given by the prophet Daniel, (12:11-12).
945,000 days is 1000 times the number of days of the siege of Jerusalem by the Babylonians. The siege lasted 945 days before Jerusalem and its temple fell. The prophecy of Ezk. 31 was given during this siege!---430 days before the temple was burned.
Ezekiel performed a symbolic siege of the city seven years before the actual city fell, Ezk. 4). He was commanded to lay on his side 390 days, and then another 40 (= 430), "A day for each year," (Ezk. 4). 390 days of Ezekiel's symbolic siege plus the 945 of the actual totals 1335 days.
Also, 430 x 3 years is 1290 years, and the city fell 1290 years after Israel went into Egypt 430 years. ('In Egypt' 1876 BC, to 1446 BC 'exodus from Egypt,' to 586 BC 'back to Egypt and Babylonian captivity!').
For these reasons and more, I am confident that the 945,000 days from the prophecy of Ezekiel 31 is not by chance, but by divine foreknowledge---and a warning; that as "Egypt" was no better than "Assyria," and as "Babylon" was no better than "Egypt"---for all were judged for their lofty pride, one by one---even so, "America" is no better than Babylon. Unless she repents she will likewise vanish away as a nation.
