Seven Simple Steps
Step 2

Step 2: Egyptian year of 365 days:

(Six-year cycles)

The Maya, Egyptians, Babylonians and others also had a 360-day calendar. As said, they adjusted it to the more accurate year of 365 days by simply added 5 special days at the end of every 360-day year rather than the 30-day leap month system of the prophetic calendar.1 Because these ancient calendars did not account for the extra quarter day in the more accurate computation of 365.25, their year steadily fell behind. For instance, with every 1460 Julian years (of 365.25 days) 1461 Egyptian years elapsed (of 365 days). (1460 years x .25 days [i.e., 6 hours] = 365 days, or a one-year lag.) The Egyptians called this 1460-year cycle the "Sothis Period."

To match the 365.25 level of accuracy, the 360-prophectic calendar of 12 months of 30 days must simply count out 6 years before an extra month of 30 days is accumulated. (A 365 solar year less a 360 prophetic year = 5 days. Five days for each year over a six-year period = 5 x 6 = 30 days.) This means that every 6th year is a leap month year with 390 days in that year, (i.e., 13 months of 30 days = 390 days).

 Six-year Cycles 12 months in a year, 30 days in a month, 360 days in a year,  with every sixth year having 13 months, or 390 days. In 6 years there would be 360 x 6 days = 2160 days, plus a leap month of 30 days more = 2190 days. (2190 days divided by 6 years = 365 days-in-a-year average.)

This and 'step 3' are really one unit. Though this second step can be studied independently, it better understood in relationship to the next step. The next step will combine six of these six-year cycles with a special 7th cycle that completes a round 40-year period. This larger 40-year cycle is the central part of the calendar. By learning and applying it to your own bible-number study, you will resolve 90% of the mysteries that lie behind these numbers. The rest of our calendar study is but 'icing on the cake.'

Endnotes:

1.) The ancient Zoroastrian calendar is an exception: They also used 30-day leaps months similar to the prophetic calendar except using 120-year cycles rather than the 40 year cycles that we will be looking at in 'step 3'.
