of Seven Reasons
Why the Prophetic Solar Year
is Set to Y2K-Day
See, "Answered in Summary".
The great importance of 144 x 40 years
(or, 5760 years from the creation to Y2K)
Y2K (Jan. 1, 2000) was 5760 years from the Jewish traditional date (used in their own calendar) for the creation of the world. It happens that 5760 years is:
|144 generations of 40 years,|
|or, 480 x 12,|
|or, 360 x 16.|
|And it is also 6 generations of 40 years short of 6000 years.|
Each of the above combination of numbers are important to the 360 calendar. This is no small proof that the year of Y2K is that year (and day) chosen by God to reveal the full details of the 360 calendar, since the 360 calendar (as based on the solar year set to Y2K) is in perfect harmony with the number of years from the creation to Y2K.
|5760 years is 144 (12 x 12) generations of 40 years
|5760 years is 480 x 12
|5760 years is 360 x 16
A closer look at what the numbers in the 360 calendar mean,
and why the sign of Y2K:
The 360 calendar is made up of basic cycles of 40 years that are grouped together into much larger units that form patterns. These patterns use numbers that are symbolic of this eternal reign of Jesus the Messiah; and the length of years from the creation (according to the tradition of the Jews, i.e., 5760 years) uses the very same numbers that the 360 calendar uses. This is why the sign of Y2K is so important---it is 5760 years from the creation. For one thing, '5760' is 1.5 times the calendar cycle of 3840 years.
For instance: The 40 year cycles are intercalated every 96 cycles (40 x 96) by dropping a month at the end of that time (i.e., = 3840 years). Now, 3840 is 8 x 480 years, and 480 is 12 generations (of 40 years). Now, the number '8' is the number of a new creation; the number 12 speaks of the 12 tribes of Israel; and the number 40 is a generation. Put them together, and we have the full meaning: "The new creation reign of Jesus Christ over the 12 tribes of Israel."
The next cycle after the 3840-year cycle occurs every 3600 x 3840 years. (3600 is 60 squared, besides the fact that it is 10 times 360). The next and last cycle is 6400 times the preceding figure. (6400 is 80 squared). The number 60 speaks of the number of man, and the number 80 of the new creation, since both are simply a magnification of '6' and '8'. (This is a common practice in the bible that we cannot delve into right now, but see Dan. 9 for a good example.) Hence, the following is the fundamental meaning behind the numbers in the full 360-calendar: "The new-creation Man (Jesus) reigning over the 12 tribes of Israel in a new creation forever.'
Moreover, these last two exponentially larger cycles of 'times 3600 times 6400' increases the total said 3840-year cycle by 23,040,000 times, which is 4800 squared! (Recall the 480 x 12 years from the creation until Y2K). The basic unit of 480 is ever so important, not just because it makes 12 generations in 480 years, but also because there are 84 leap months accumulated in that very span of time, which is exactly 7 years. (84 months x 30 days = 2520 days, and 7 years of 360 days = 2520). The number '7' is the number of perfection and completion. Hence, putting it all together (and this is just the tip of the ice berg!), the meaning is clear: "'The perfect new Man (reigning over the 12 tribes of Israel) perfectly for all eternity.' The idea of "eternity" is brought out by the fact that the last cycle of 'times 80 squared' only occurs approximately every 88 billions years! Like eternity, this is very long time indeed, and without calendar-end in site either, with the number '88' emphasizing the fact that this 'new creation' ('88') will last forever, (Rev. 21-22).
So then, the 480 x 12 (or, 40 x 12 x 12) from the creation of the world until Y2K (according to the calendar of the Jews used today) is a true sign that the Jewish Messiah---Jesus (Yeshua) is coming soon---so don't lose hope!
God has sent this revelation because of His great love for His people, and He does not want us to grow weary as we wait for His soon coming reign. Even so come Lord Jesus! Y2K, as a major world event, did not happen as expected. (Though the technical glitches on the computer clocks did). Nor did Jesus' return to earth on this 2000-year anniversary as some may have secretly hoped. But Y2K as a sign still holds true---and as a sign, it shall not fail. Time (like the clocks of Y2K) may have to be adjusted, and so might the time of His return (as viewed from our perspective)---but ultimately, it will be right on time according to the predetermined plan of God the Father. But when that time will be---don't guess, because, just as Y2K was an embarrassment to so many, so will predicting the return of Jesus Christ be if you sin by setting dates. Instead, be satisfied with the sign of what Y2K meant---That is, that the eternal reign of Jesus is at hand---wait for it, but don't set dates: Like Y2K, God reserves the right to put back or forward His prophetic clock!
Further detail for those who would reflect a little more on
the meaning of the numbers revealed in the calendar as they relate to the reign
of Jesus, "the son of David," (Luke 2:4; 18:38):
|David began his reign (1011 BC) 7 x 430 years before Y2K, (Israel spent 430 years in Egypt).|
|David fled from Saul before David became king, 480 days,
(1Sam. 27:6). (Saul had reigned 40 years).
|40 is a generation, and both David, and the son of David
(Solomon) reigned 40 years:
|Both David and Solomon had a distinct 7½-year period of great significance
in their 40-year reigns. (David reigned just over Judah the first
7½-years of his reign, [2Sam.2:11]. Solomon spent 7½-years to build the
temple (967-960 BC) (or, 966-959 BC)---the triumph of his career. It was built
480 years after the Exodus, (1Kgs. 6:1), and 480 x 2 years before the
birth of Jesus!
|The total volume of space for the temple was 36,000
cubits, (60 x 20 x 30 cubits, 1Kgs. 6:2, 19).
|Even the number of men conscripted to work on the temple
is significant: |
150,000 + 3,600 foremen, a total of 153,600 men, (2Chron. 2:2, 17-18).
( All three of these numbers are very important to the calendar.)
|David died, and Solomon rose to the throne exactly 1000 years before the Jesus' death, resurrection and exaltation to the throne of God, (971 BC to AD 30). (The 40 years of each of their reigns, in turn, fall forward 1000 years exactly onto the generation of Christ, and onto the generation after Christ that ended with the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70.|
|Note the 4000-year calendar. It represents 4 days, ('a day for each 1000 years'). The Book of Revelation states that Jesus shall reign "1000 years," (Rev. 20:6). And then for all eternity, (Rev. 22:5). (The 4000-year cycle is divided by 1000-year units as well---not by leap month adjustments, but internally as studied elsewhere.)|
|There are 30 days in a month, and "a day is as a year." The 30 years of Jesus represent the leap month added at the end of every 6-year cycle of the 360 calendar. Abraham---the father of all Jews---was born 6 x 360 years before the birth of Jesus, (2166 to 6 BC). Thus, the 30 years of Jesus life forms, as days, the leap month that is added at the end of every 2160 days (6 years). (The same can be said for the Exodus, 1446 BC, which is 4 x 360 years before the birth of Jesus---if we view Jesus' birth as the end of a given 40-year cycle rather than at its beginning. Ponder the basic 40-year cycle below for further clarity.)|
The 40-year Cycle of the 360 Prophetic Calendar
|at end of 6-years||6-years||6-years||6-years||6-years||6-years||4-years|
|2,190 days||2,190 days||2,190 days||2,190 days||2,190 days||2,190 days||1,470 days|
|40 years of 14,610 days|
|14,610 days = 365.25 days x 40 years|
Thus, the 6th cycle of 6 years is followed by a 7th cycle only 4 years long---for a total of 40 years, (a "generation" in the bible). (6 x 6 = 36 years, + 4 years = 40 years.) The effect is to place emphasis upon the 6th and 7th cycle since the 6th cycle of 6 years precedes the special seventh cycle of only 4 years, which in turn concludes the 40-year cycle.
One last point:
The Exodus is equal in importance to the Creation for being a primary starting point for the counting down of years, (cf. Ex. 12:2, 1Kgs. 6:1, etc.) The Jewish traditional date for the Exodus is 1313 BC. From 1313 BC to the very week of Y2K are exactly 3,360 years (of 360 days), and 3,360 years equals 84 generations, (84 x 40 = 3360 years). Therefore, from the Creation unto Y2K are 12 x 12 (144) generations, and from the Exodus unto Y2K are 12 x 7 (84) generations. Both of these figures are key time frames within the structure of the prophetic calendar itself.
The final seventh reason 'why Y2K was a
of the prophetic 360-day calendar'
shall be put out at a later time.
A few technical notes:
1. New-years day of Nisan (Abib) 1st (morning) of the 360 calendar landed on March 10, 1446 BC (Gregorian calendar, but which was March 23 Julian). (March 10th on the conventional Jewish calendar that year was about Adar 12.) The Julian day # is 1193352. (That day, therefore, symbolized as AD 1 as explained later.)
2. The 3840-year cycle began when they entered Egypt in 1446 BC. The alternate 4000-year cycles began in 4006 BC at the Creation. Both Creation (as in 4006 BC) and the Exodus (1446 BC) run along the same 40-year cycles. Therefore, the 4000-year calendar and the 3840-year calendar mesh with each other and compliment one another. They do not conflict with each other at all.
3. You may find it interesting that the great tsunami that killed 300,000 on Dec. 26, 2004 was 1,260,000 days (Rev. 12) from Nisan 14 (360-calendar) of the Passover of the Exodus, and eve of the 10th plague upon Egypt. Click here for more on that.
