Leap-Month Cycles of the
360-days Lunar-Solar Calendar

Explained in Seven Simple Steps

Step 1

There are only three simple steps or stages of increasing accuracy that must be learned.
Once learned, 90% of all prophetic study to do with times and seasons will be understood.
Nevertheless, the remaining steps of our calendar study are the most fascinating.

Step 1: Prophetic year of 360 days: (Non-adjusted)

(One-year cycles)

Many believe that the 360 prophetic calendar should not be adjusted by leap months at all, but rather should be left to simply lag behind the solar year by the difference of 5.2422 days per year. (365.2422 less 360 = 5.2422 days.) But clearly this is not the whole story. God both adjusts and does not adjust the 360 calendar to the true solar year. There are seven major adjustments. Only the first three are crucial to understand. These adjustments occur in increasing levels of accuracy. Each level interacts with the other.

 Simple One-year Cycles 12 months in a year, 30 days in a month, 360 days in a year. In 6 years there are 360 days x 6 = 2160 days; and in 1000 years 360,000 days, etc. The 360 calendar is simply left to lag behind the actual solar year.

Our Approach:

It conveniently happens that, general speaking, each successive civilization utilized a round figure for a solar year in agreement with the successive complexities of the prophetic clock.  For instance, the Egyptians used an round 365-day year, the Romans a 365.25-year, our modern Gregorian calendar has a 365.2422-year. The prophetic 360-calendar utilizes these figures too, but ultimately surpasses them in accuracy millions of times over. As we journey in our examination of the prophetic calendar, we will do so one step at a time with each step paralleling the progress of ancient civilizations in their effort towards a more accurate clock (calendar).

Part 'A': (Steps 1-5)

 The first three steps forms the basic generational structure of the calendar: The calendar is simple to learn because: a) It uses simply round numbers; b) It uses familiar bible numbers; c) It forms a simple 40-year (generational) unit; d) Only the first three levels of accuracy must be learned. Beyond this, the calendar involves thousands---even billions of years of hypothetical time.   Keep in mind that this calendar is the one used by the prophets. It is not meant to be used for secular work---though it could be. The fourth and fifth steps reach the outer limits of the hypothetical 100,000-year span of human ages as given in Ex. 20:5-6, Deut. 7:9, 1Ch. 16:15, Ps. 105:8: The fourth and fifth steps are even more easy to learn! They complete the first part of our study on the prophetic calendar. Our study is divided into two sections because the final levels of accuracy found in the second section are beyond the limits of definite verifiable precision.

Part 'B': (Steps 6-7)

 The sixth and seventh steps reach the outer-limits of time as used to describe the infinite God in Ps. 90:4 and 2Pet. 3:8: In the second part of our study, we will venture into that which is debatable. Part 'B' requires narrowly defined measurements that depend as much on scientific theory as it does on mechanical measurements. However, we will use those measurements that are popular among scientists. We conclude our study by asserting that the stunning biblical patterns that emerge at the final levels of exactitude speak for themselves and cannot be the result of random chance.
