More than 20 years ago I
was given the book Las Profecias de Cristobal Colon. That
book was facinating as this article is.
It went into much more
details into the prophecies in the Bible that motivated
Colon to embark in the discovery. It also covered his other
trips that followed.
He left Spain on the 9 of
AV according to that book on the same day the Temple was
destroyed and on the same day the expilsion edict was made
foe all the Jews in Spain.
Today I believe that
Fernando and Isabel were acting on purpose when they made
this edict tp fall on the 9th of Av. At the time the
Catholic church believed the Jews were responsible for the
death of Jesus and were therefore persecuted.
Colon was a student of
Bible prophecy and therefore new the real story of the role
of Israel and the Jews for the redemption of the world, The
Kings of Spain became tools of Satan for the destruction of
Abraham's promise by God of the Kingdom.
Most if not all of the crew
of the three boats were Jews fleeing the King's expulsion
edict. It is also true that the money for the expedition was
made possible from rich Jewish people.
