"The number 153"
Years ago, after the little booklet "88 Reasons Why the
Rapture will be in l988" by Edgar Whisenant, I was on fire to find out
when the rapture would be. In the course of study after study and
watching current events, I became aware of an unusual occurrence in
The Berlin wall had come down bring down with it the Iron Curtain of
the Soviet Union in 1989 thus 4 years later this happened. In an
article published by the Gideon International, a Bible distribution
ministry as you know, in the June 1993 issue, they said that after a
concentrated effort between them and the American Bible Society, they
had managed to saturate 153 nations with Bibles or parts of
Bibles. The 153rd nation was Estonia, just out from behind the
Greater strides have been made since then, of course, and other nations
have now been added to the group.
Just thought it interesting, for whatever value.
