 Seven Simple Steps

Biblical Basis for the 40-year Cycles

Supplement

 

Review of 40th cycle: 

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 put 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. 

Biblical Precedents:
40-year cycles:

This formula highlights the creation pattern of the seventh day as set apart as special. Moreover, a period of 40 or 100 years is considered to be a generation in the bible. (The significance of the 100 years appears in the 4th and 5th 'steps'.) The bible frequently mentions 40-year periods. The 40 years the Israelites spent in the wilderness after they came out of Egypt is particularly pertinent to our study. The exodus from Egypt was in 1446 BC. God said that that year was to be the beginning of a new calendar for them, (Ex. 12:2). Events thereafter were dated from the exodus until at least the time of king Solomon. 

For instance, "in the 40th year" (after the exodus) the Israelites entered the promise land (Deut. 1:3).  Moses was 80 years old at the exodus. He had just spent 40 years in the desert, and before that---40 years in Egypt, (Acts 7:23-30). He died in the "the 40th year," (after the exodus, Num. 33:38). Thus, Moses life was divided into 3 equal periods of 40 years. 

King Solomon began to build the temple "in the 480th year" (after the exodus, 1Kg. 6:1). Now, 480 equals 12 x 40 years, or 12 generations. Solomon himself reigned 40 years, as did his father David, and King Saul before him. Many more examples could be given, but the point is this: The ongoing 40-year cycles of the 360-prophetic calendar are clearly found in the bible; and moreover, they begin at the start of a new calendar reference point inaugurated at the exodus, (Ex. 12:2). Even more significantly, the conception/birth of Christ is exactly 36 (6 x 6) generations later, or 36 x 40 years, or 360 x 4. (I.e., from 1446 to 6 BC). Both 36, 4, 360, and 40 are prime calendar numbers. Many more examples could be cited, but we will reserve that to our discussion of the numeric patterns that the 360-calendar produces---later on.


'Seventh' cycles:

The use of various seven year cycles is very common in the bible. They occur as cycles of seven days (Gen. 1-2, etc.), weeks (Deut. 16:9), years (Lev. 25:8), and even tens of years (Dan. 9:24). Likewise, the last 4 years of the 40 year calendar cycle has 7 x 7 (49) months in it (1470 days), with the 49th month being the 7th leap month of the 40 year cycle! (6 cycles of 6 years = 36 years, plus the 7th cycle of 4 years = 40 years.) Even at this rudimentary level, the biblical patterns of the prophetic calendar are as obvious as they are striking. 

The following scripture will suffice as an example of the seventh of some given time periods as being special in the bible:

"Therefore the sons of Israel shall keep the Sabbath (lit. "the Seventh"), to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations (i.e., "40-years"), for an everlasting covenant. It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed," (Ex. 31:15,16). 

 

This 40-year-generational cycle, based upon the creation pattern, is the basic unit of prophetic calendar time. One would be hard pressed to invent a calendar from their own imagination with an invented orbit of the earth that would be truer to the biblical pattern. And yet this simple formula for calendar adjustment is not only accurate to true time, but produces an unimaginable complex array of biblical patterns. However, before the details are addressed, let us increase the accuracy level to that of our own modern (Gregorian) year of 365.2425 days and see what happens.

 

To step 4:
Our Modern (Gregorian) year of 365.2425 days

(Also see the more accurate 3840 cycle 
which breaks away from this twin calendar at this point.)

A quick note for those familiar with bible numbers: 

The "6th cycle of 6 years" arrangement is very striking since there are 6 x 60 days in each year---(plus the 6 leap months over this 6 x 6-year period). Moreover, upon every 6th cycle of 40-years (i.e., every 6th 'generation') there accumulates 42 leap months, or 1260 days, (cf., Rev. 11:2-3).

There are 7 x 360 days, [i.e., 7 years, or 1260 x 2 days], accumulated in leaps months over a 480-year period---the very number given by King Solomon as before mentioned, (1Kg. 6:1). Hence, in 486 or 486 years, 1260 + 1290 days are accumulated. This solves the Dan. 9:27 with Dan. 12:11 mystery, not to mention the 390 of Ezekiel 4 and the 1260 of Rev. 11:2. 

Each 40-year period has 13350 + 1260 days in it thereby indicating that the meaning of the last four years of the 40-year cycle is to be understood as a type of 3-year period. This solves the thematic connection between the 40-years Israelites wilderness wandering with the 3-year wilderness of Rev. 12. (Also, the entire calendar starts from both the Nisan and Tishri months creating a 6 month parallel.)

In 1000 years ("a day is as a 1000 years"), 1290 + 1335 x 2 days are accumulated in leap months! (Dan. 12:11-12).

The lunar calendar uses the 2300 of Dan. 8:14 to divide the 'day' (1000 years) into the ancient '8 parts' of the Roman day---as was used in the New Testament. The reverse system of 'a 1000 years is as a day,' manifests in the latter levels of the prophetic calendar, as does the biblical 'one-day-equals-one-year' reckoning.

 

Back to "Step One"

 

Step 1---accuracy level of 360-days in a year

360 days in a year?

Step 2 ---accuracy level of 365-days in a year 

Step 3 ---accuracy level of 365.25-days in a year 

Supplement --- The 40-year cycle

Step 4 ---accuracy level of 365.2425-days in a year 

Step 5 ---accuracy level of 365.2422-days in a year 

Step 6 ---accuracy level of 365.2421896-days in a year 

Step 7 ---accuracy level of 365.24218967-days in a year 

Perfection! The 3840-year cycle is more accurate than the round 4000-year cycles. However, either as 4000-year cycles that begin from Creation (4006 BC), or 3840-year cycles that begin from the Exodus (1446 BC), the 360-calendar yields a stream of biblical numbers that interlock with each other without conflicting with each other.
