Perfection! The alternative 3840-year cycle


So far we have pondered the basic 4000-year cycles within the largest 100,000 year cycles. But the calendar can be projected much further. The last 100,000- year cycle was actually a rounding of what more accurately should be a 96,000-year cycle. (4000 x 24 instead of 4000 x 25 years.) In this article we project much further into the future along two slightly different possibilities: What is accurate for many billions of years and what is accurate forever. As we shall see, an array of very meaningful numeric patterns emerge that are perfectly in keeping with the calendar on the smaller scale (as previously explained), and with bible numbers in general. Amazingly, they agree perfectly with the span of the vast geological ages, that is, according to the findings of modern-day astronomy.

Some of the material on this page is still in rough form.

Both calendars are derived from the exact solar year of 365.2421896698 days as if forever unchanging on Y2K. Remember that the purpose of the calendar is to create symbolic patterns descriptive of the soon-coming eternal reign of Jesus the Messiah; it is not a calendar to live by.

(Out 1 day every 100,000 years!)



Here is a chart that is set to the solar year of 365.2421896698 days on 2000-01-01 (also know as Y2K-day---the day that time symbolically stood still.) But for now the examination of it must be left to you. There are about 12 documents that explain (and defend) Y2K as a heavenly sign in detail. The main clue that unlocks its meaning is to apply the 'one day is as 1000 years' ratio (and versa visa).

Square Root Values of the 4000-year Calendar
(The Eternal Calendar continues this phenomenon)

1 year (of 360 days) = 720 minutes squared (or 360 x 2 min. sq.)
x 40 = 40-year cycle (= 6 sq. + 2 sq. years) = 120 days sq. (or 40 x 3 days sq.)
x 100 = 4000-year cycle = 1,200 days sq.  (or 400 x 3 days sq.)
x 24 = 96,000-year cycle = 28,800 hours sq. (or 360 x 80 hrs sq.) (1,728,000 sec. sq.)
x 150 = 14,400,000-year cycle = 72,000 days sq. (or 360 x 200 days sq.)
x 24 = 345,600,000-year cycle = 1,728,000 hours sq. (or 360 x 4,800 hrs sq.) (103,680,000 sec. sq.)
Every square-root figure is divisible by 120, (and 120 x 3 = 360). 

Line 3 is 60x line 5, and line 4 is 60x line 6. This pattern is continued into the Eternal Calendar, (see last table).

When reducing the above to the ratio of 1000 years = 1 day, the square root principle persists since 360,000 days is itself 600 sq. Therefore, to arrive at the correct value simply divide each square root number by 600. For instance, 4000 years shrinks from 1,200 days sq. to 2 days sq. on this ratio.

Lines 3 & 4 placed together equals 100,000 years, (which is 1000 generations of 100 years, see Ex. 20:6). 100,000 years = 6,000 days squared. Moreover, since the bible also uses the ratio of one year can equal  ONE DAY (Num. 14:34, Ezk. 4:4-6), line 5 of itself can equal 1000 generations of 40 years!

Likewise, lines 5 & 6 together equals 360,000,000 years, which is 360,000 days squared. And 360,000,000 years is the same as 1000 years on the ratio of 1000 years = 1 day. Thus, the entire 4000-year Calendar is summed up as 1000 years, and thus again back to ONE DAY!!!

Moreover, 360,000 days squared is one-year squared on this ratio of 1000 years = 1 day. Thus, the entire 4000-year Calendar is also summed up as ONE YEAR squared! And one year is like ONE DAY too!!!  Therefore, the full 4000-year Calendar is arranged in the mirror to sum up as One Day from two separate perspectives:

  1. As regular... lines 5 & 6 = 360,000,000 years ==> 1000 years ==> 1 day
  2. As squared... lines 5 & 6 = 360,000,000 years  ==> 360,000 days squared ==> 1 year sq. ==> 1 day sq.

What about the leap months?

The last cycle equals 346,600,000 years. As said, on the 1000 years = 1 day scale this figure equals as 960 years. The second last cycle is 14,400,000 years, which on the 1000 year = 1 day scale = as 40 years. In the mirror it looks like this:

By "years" or "days" we mean as viewed on this scale of 1000 year = 1 day.

960 "years" accumulates 1260 x 4 "days", cf., Rev. 12:6, (or 14 years of 360 days) 

+ 40 = 1000 "years" and accumulates 1,290 + 1335 x 2 "days," cf., Dan. 12:11,12.

In the mirror, the dates of 961 BC to AD 40, = 1000 years are symbolically recreated on this grand scale!!!

The dates answer to the period of Solomon's reign and temple, to the birth and death of Christ, which prefigures the "1000-year reign of Christ," (Rev. 20:4). The figures are here left simplified for brevities sake. I.e., from Solomon's temple to the birth of Jesus are 960 years, (966 to 6 BC, etc). 

(The Jewish calendar reckons the year of Y2K to be year-5760 (from the Creation). Thus, according to the Jewish calendar, Y2K was 960 x 6 years from the Creation, or 40 x 144, (or 360 years x 4 sq., or 360 x 4 days sq., etc). For more, see point "6" on Why Y2K. It is hard to imagine a year on the Jewish calendar more pregnant in meaning than this year that happens to be the year of Y2K, and thus the astronomical coordinates of our 4000-year Calendar.)






Here are the two full calendars side by side for comparison.

In Agreement With the Cosmic Ages


Update on May 22, 2010, which is many years after this document was put out: It seems more likely that the massive cycles of millions of years ended at the birth of Christ, 6 BC, but that the simple 100,000 calendar began at creation as explained above. 

Interestingly, if astronomers are right (and this depends on uniformitarianism), and the Big-Bang "Creation" began "13.75 ( 0.11) billion years ago", this would make 6 BC the 40th cycle of the 4000-year calendar (345,600,000 x 40 years), and also the 1000th cycle of the "eternal calendar", (40 x 96 x 3600 x 40 years). (Newest figures as of January 2012 are "13.73 ( 0.12)".) 

(Both the 40th or 1000th cycle of either calendar fits perfectly with the symbolic meaning of the time frames already discussed within the calendars. It also completes an impressive symmetry by beginning and ending on a cycle of 40. {See below chart.} This puts the Creation at March, 13,824,000,006 BC, and thus within the parameters of the age of the universe according to the most recent measurements. Either this is a most remarkable coincidence, or God! Even if the universe only appears to be this age (uniformitarianism), but instead is only about 6,000 years old, it is still a very remarkable "coincidence".

At the time that this calendar was studied and put on the net, astronomers had put the age of the universe at about 14.6 billion years, much too old to fit the 360-calendar. Perhaps science is just now catching up to what "God's" calendar was suggesting all along? I realize this raises questions about how literal the Genesis account is, questions that may take years to resolve. But in the end, God will be glorified more than ever. Of that I am sure! Interestingly, astronomers divide the approximate 14 billion into two nearly equal periods of 7 billion, similar to the biblical division of 7 + 7 years discussed here and elsewhere. This also completes seven cycles, just as in creation and also like the basic 40-year cycles. And like creation, the first three days mirror the next three days, with the seventh day set apart as special. Note in the below chart that the first three cycles occur within the biblical timeframes to do with human civilization.


Cycles 1

1 year (of 360 days)

cycle 2 x 40 = 40-year cycle  These two cycles = 4000
cycle 3 x 100 = 4000-year cycle
cycle 4 x 24 = 96,000-year cycle  These two cycles = 3600
cycle 5 x 150 = 14,400,000-year cycle  These two cycles = 3600
cycle 6 x 24 = 345,600,000-year cycle  
cycle 7 x 40 = 13,824,000,000 --- that is, 13,824,000,006 BC


This also fits well with the "thousand years equals a day" ratio as discussed already on this page. It creates the "12900 + 12900 + 12600" pattern, with the third figure commencing exactly when scientist say the earth itself began to form, that is 4.54 billions years ago. (12600 x 360 x 1000 = 4,536,000,000 years.) Interestingly, the sun is said to have formed shortly before the earth (about 30 million years), and will burn out 4.5 billion years from now, thus placing the present in the middle of the nine-billion-year life cycle of the sun. This completes the pattern of, "12900 + 12900 + 12600" + 12600/12900". This, therefore, completes the seven-plus-seven-year pattern except as seventy-year unites (Psalm 90:4,10), with the seven's divided in half, as the bible indeed does. These are the same numeric patterns seen repeated in the history of human civilization, as examined in detail on the bible numbers website, except here repeating themselves back billions of years in increasingly large cycles. (Note that Psalm 90 likewise connects the "70-year" unit with "a thousands years are like a day", Psalm 90:4,10. Normally a generation is either 40 or 100 years in the bible. This is the one place in the bible where a generation, as viewed as the average life span of a man, is referred to as "70 years", which is the average of 40 and 100. When the key fits, every numeric falls in place on every scale, the large and the small.)

This also means that from the creation at 13,824,000,000 years before the Exodus and Christ are 144000 cycles of the 96,000-year cycle, and this also means that there are 144000 of the 4000-year cycle remaining after this to complete the 144000th cycle of the other 100,000-year cycle. These numbers are found in the bible, (Deut. 7:9, Rev. 7:4), and together imply that "a thousand generations" are like one man and one man like a thousand generations of men. This is very similar to where the bible says that, "a thousand years are like a day and a day is like a thousand years," (Psalm 90, 2Peter3:8). Jesus Christ is that "man", the elect one, "the firstborn over all creation".

Col 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

Col 1:16 For by him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether they are kings, lords, rulers, or powers. All things have been created through him and for him.

Col 1:17 He himself existed before all things, and by him all things hold together.

("144000" is the number of God's elect at the end of the age, Rev. 7:4. 

"100,000" is 1000 generations of elect individuals, Deut. 7:9, a generation being 100 years. "Showing mercy to a thousand generations..." Deut. 7:9. (I.e., on this scale it is as if to say, "Showing mercy to a thousand generations 144000 times, once for every elect person!"

The "96,000 cycle" is a variant of the 100,000. It simply lacks the previous 4000-year cycle. Amazingly, a generation in the bible is either 40 or 100 years and " 4000" is 100 cycles of the basic 40-year cycle!

Also note that the 5th major cycle on the chart is a 14,400,000-year cycle, which happens to also be 144000 generations of 100 years!)

It is also interesting that the final figure for the eternal calendar ( 153.6 trillion years) is exactly 11,111.1111111111 etc., times the age of the universe, as said, at 13,824,000,006 BC, although this might just be a mathematical quirk.

I have tried to compute the odds of all these patterns repeating themselves like this in the geological ages. Conservatively, I place the odds at about one in 2000 that the small contemporary scale would repeat itself on the enormous geological scale. (The real odds are more likely one in a million, but I would rather err on the side of the lesser.)  

What is the conclusion of the matter? 

God would have us to know that whether the age of the earth is young or old, He is Creator. God is sovereign over men and even their theories. And in the end when the dust settles, the truth will always glorify Him. So be still and know that He is God!

Final note: I later realized that about the very hour I made this discovery about the 40th cycle back to 13.8 billion years, the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus was being reburied. He is the priest that discovered that the earth revolved around the sun, and although rejected by the church at that time, it later proved to be a revolutionary truth that paved the way for modern astronomy. In the same way I am left to wonder whether Christians who fight against the notion of the heavens and earth being billions of years old will soon universally and irrefutably be found wrong? Moreover, two days before this, the first synthetic cell was created. Something to think about! I personally find nothing in the bible that contradicts a very old heavens and earth and indeed it makes far more sense to me even from a purely biblical perspective.

End of update.





A Few Technical Notes:

1. New-years day of Nisan (Abib) 1st (morning) of the 360 calendar landed on April 9, 1446 BC (Gregorian calendar, but which was April 22 Julian). (April 9th on the conventional Jewish calendar that year was about Nisan 11.) The Julian day # is 1193382. (That day, therefore, symbolized as AD 1 as explained later.)  (Note: after writing this is was realized that 30 days earlier, that is, March 10, 1446 BC, is the primary date for when the New Year began even though April 9th is indeed aligned with the the Creation. Please see, "How to find any date on the 360-calendar" for details and important table of dates explained.)

2. The 4000-year cycles began in 4006 BC at the Creation and again when they entered Egypt in 1446 BC. (Nisan 1 on the 360 calendar in 4006 BC falls on, or about, the spring equinox, March 21 Gregorian, which is April 22 Julian, which happens to be Nisan 1 on the regular Jewish calendar {as well as the 360 calendar}, which makes it a new moon! {Julian #258342.} The new moon, the spring equinox, and the start of the 360 calendar are therefore perfectly aligned with this Creation date to signal 'a new beginning'. However, it is my personal view that this date is merely symbolic for the Creation, and that the actual Creation date may be something else.

Note that both Creation ( 4006 BC) and the Exodus (1446 BC, see note #1) run along the same 40-year cycles.

The first 4000-year cycle ends at about the time of the birth/conception of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ in 6 BC, (Julian #1719312, March 21 Gregorian, 23rd Julian). There are 64 generations/cycles of 40 years that pass between the Creation and the Exodus, and once again, 64 is a square-root figure, that is, 8 x 8, (or 8 x 8 x 8 x 5 years = 2560 years). Fittingly, the number "eight" in the bible symbolizes "a new beginning", with 2560 years being about how many days there are in a seven-year period, hence memorializing the Creation that took place in "seven days" --- a year for each day. 

Observe that an overlap of one month (30 days), therefore, occurs between the years 6 BC and AD 2555 (2560 years). This is because the 4000-calendar from the Exodus will not complete its first cycle until AD 2555 thereby being ahead of the Creation-calendar by one leap-month all during this 2560-year span. This means that currently, and for the next 560 years, there is a one-month gap between the two calendars. 

The creation date is not based upon biblical chronology, although it is certainly in the right ballpark. The creation date of 4006 BC is mainly based upon the deduction that a calendar from creation should both weave into the time of the exodus and the birth of Christ, and this one does both exceedingly well. However, the exodus date is the only calendar date that is clearly established by the bible itself. The creation date is only inferred, although strongly so. For more about this, and why the exodus date, see, "What Year are We in According to the 360 Calendar?"

Concerning the 3840-year cycles, I have come to favor the 4000-year cycles for its simplicity over the 3840-cycles, and simplicity is important for a calendar. After that are the 100,000-year cycles. Thus, 40 and 4000 and 100,000-year cycles. Beyond that I may have gone too far. I may yet put all other information on this website in archive. I am not as convinced of the 3840 cycles as I once was. It works just like I said, but it lacks simplicity, something I underestimated for significance. Also, when the calendar gets into cycles that run into the trillions of years, the symmetry exhibited might largely be due to the quirks of numbers. Numbers can do strange things by their very nature! See, "What Year are We in According to the 360 Calendar?"


3. You may find it interesting that the great tsunami that killed 230,000 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. (This third note has been adjusted by 30 days since it was written. However, the meaning is still the same, just a little longer to explain. The symbolic day-year for the actual day of the tsunami is the reason why, and also see the above note.)
