Cycles of the
360-days Lunar-Solar Calendar
Explained in Seven Simple Steps
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)
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.
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.
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).
|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
|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
