The End Times:
     Modern Translations of Biblical Country Names.

One of the most difficult things about reading Bible prophecies regarding the endtimes is the fact that countries at the time these prophecies were written (about 2600 years ago, some of them), did not carry the names they have today. Even in the days of Yeshua - Jesus - the names were not what they are now.

So Bible prophecy can seem confusing, strange and unreal. When these names are translated into modern country names however, the whole picture of Bible prophecy starts to fall into place. It also brings a new urgency in present-dsy times, when prophecies are being fulfilled at an ever increasing speed.

Below we provide a table showing the biblical prophecy country names, with their present-day equivalents. Note that some of these names are the names of tribes or individual leaders, whose personal names came to be used for the tribes and lands of their descendants.
