Cycles of the
Seven Simple Steps
Step 4: The Modern (Gregorian) year of 365.2425 days:
The 360-day prophetic calendar must add 7 leap months every 40 years,
with the leap month on the 4000th year omitted, in order to keep in
perfect synchronization with the sun. This will produce an accuracy
level exactly the same as our modern (Gregorian) calendar of 365.2425
The leap month of the 100th cycle of the
40-year cycles must be omitted
100 cycles of 40 years = 4000 years.
14,610 days in a 40-year cycle, with 30 days less on the
100th cycle equals 1,460,970 days in 4000 years.
1,460,970 days divided by 4000 years equals an average
year of 365.2425.
The bible speaks of 40 years in the wilderness and 400 years in Egypt, so
now we have 4000 year cycles. Moreover, we was that a generation in the bible
was 40 or 100 years. So now we have 40
times 100 years. We have either 40 or 100 generations---depending on how one
looks at it. Thus the theme of generational cycles continues.
Moreover, 4000 years is commonly looked upon as symbolic of just 4
days in bible prophecy using the familiar biblical ratio of "a day is as
a thousand years," (1Pet. 3:8, cf., Ps. 90:4). For instance, it is
commonly believed that Jesus Christ came into the world about 4000 years from
the creation according the biblical chronological record. Thus, Christ was
born at the end of this great cycle---From the first Adam to the last
Adam, (1Cor. 15:45). We are now half way through the second 4000 year cycle.
But the most fantastic patterns emerge when we view the 4000 years as starting
from the exodus consistent with how we have thus far already viewed it. But we
must leave that for a later study.
As said, the 4000-year cycles cause the average solar year to work out to
365.2425 days, which is the same as our modern (Gregorian) calendar. Now it
'happens' that scientists
estimate that the solar year was just that---365.24250 days around 4000
BC! (The average length of a solar year is shrinking extremely slowly.)
Hence, the traditional year of creation just 'happens' to have had a solar
year of of exactly 365.2425 days---which generates these great 4000-year
cycles, the first of which just 'happens' to have occurred at the birth of
The following is quoted
off the Internet, "The
Julian and the Gregorian Calendar" by Peter Meyer. The highlighting
agree, however, that due to the gravitational dynamics of the Sun-Earth-Moon
system the length of the tropical year (however defined) is changing slowly.
The length of the tropical year on 2000-01-01 is calculated by some
astronomers to be 365.24218967 days, but at this level of precision the
value depends on the definition of the concept. The value changes
significantly with the millennia, however, as follows (according to a
formula in common use among astronomers):
Year Length of tropical year in days
Thus the value of the tropical year varies over
this 10,000-year time-span
by as much as .00052 days (about 45 seconds)."
Therefore, at the creation, before sin and the curse, the tropical
year was 365.24250, but by our time 6000 years later (at the end of the
world?) it is now 365.24219. The difference between these two numbers is
extremely slight, but as we shall see, God is using both numbers---that
is, what the tropical year was originally created to be, and what it is
now. They are in fact two witnesses to the One who created this clock.
The prophetic clock uses both ends of this 6000-year spectrum.
The 365.2425 generates the said cycles of 4000 year periods. However, the current
365.2422 days (rounded from 365.24219) generates the need for 100,000-year
cycles, or 1000 generations of 100 years. As we shall see, this is a most
significant number! (We will look at the still more precise figure of 365.24218967
days in the second section of our study.)

and Setting our Clock to 365.2422 days"
