Guidelines for Research


In his book, "Time Has An End", Harold Camping includes an impressive chart showing timelines in the Bible, and how they break down into multiples of significant numbers.

Looking at the first timeline in the chart, we see three events tied to a timeline divisible by (multiples of) 43-year intervals and anchored to 1447 BC:

1. 1447 BC Israel leaves Egypt
2. 931 BC Israel divided into two nations
3. 587 BC Judah destroyed

Can we find other events that fit?  Using the Bible-calculator, and entering 1447 BC as anchor year (931 or 587 would equally serve) and entering 43 for the year-interval, we get:

-10778  Birth of Enos
	217  x  43  =  9331   years from  -1447
 -2092  Abraham enters Canaan
	15  x  43  =  645   years from  -1447
 -1877  Israel enters Egypt 2 yrs into great famine
	10  x  43  =  430   years from  -1447
 -1447  Moses returns to Egypt; Israel leaves Egypt
	0  x  43  =  0   years from  -1447
 -1146  Start 10 yrs when Elon judged Israel
	7  x  43  =  301   years from  -1447
  -931  Israel divided into two nations: Israel and Judah
	12  x  43  =  516   years from  -1447
  -587  Judah destroyed by Babylon, ending monarchy
	20  x  43  =  860   years from  -1447
  1994  Beginning of second jubilee (latter rain) [Wed Sep 7]
	80  x  43  =  3440   years from  -1447

It should be stressed that a multitude of results, or an abundance of information, does not mean that one has a corresponding increase in knowledge or meaning. Perhaps not all of these results tie in. Perhaps Mr. Camping already considered and discarded these extra dates as not related.

On the other hand, the timeline functions of this computing aid were inspired by the historical research of Mr. Camping and were intended to assist those wrangling with an abundance of numbers and dates (that's what computers are good at), so that faster investigation of all possibilities could be enabled.


Don't be overly eager to see results everywhere... for example, the first three digits in the Open Forum phone number (322-5385) seem to provide meaningful results. However, lacking any Biblical significance to the number 322, we must ignore such results. Yet coincidentally, the biblically significant  number 276 does yield the same (this time significant) result:

=========By Span 322==============================================
 -1877  Israel enters Egypt 2 yrs into great famine
	0  x  322  =  0   years from  -1877
  1988  End of Church Age / Beginning of great tribulation
	12  x  322  =  3864   years from  -1877

=========By Span 276==============================================
 -1877  Israel enters Egypt 2 yrs into great famine
	0  x  276  =  0   years from  -1877
  1988  End of Church Age / Beginning of great tribulation
	14  x  276  =  3864   years from  -1877

The spiritual significance of the factors of 276:

=========Number Analysis 276======================================
Number Significance:
    2  >  Keepers of Gospel (Israel, churches, true believers)
    3  >  God's purpose
    4  >  To the farthest extent (in time, distance, or scope)
    6  >  Work (spiritually, towards salvation or righteousness)
   12  >  The fullness of whatever is in view
   23  >  God's wrath or judgment

Note how these spiritual meanings are thoroughly in line with the breaking up of Paul's ship (a portrait of the churches) which carried 276 passengers (Acts 27).


When will 50070-day-spans (1 Samuel 6:19) divide out evenly as complete years, if I keep adding enough of them together?

(more an example of study technique than obvious significance)

=========Time Converter, 50070 days===============================
3153 years = 1151608 days, or 23 sets of 50070.0 days, -1.38 days

Are there any significant events 3153 years apart?

=========By Span 3135=============================================
 -4640  Death of Noah
	0  x  3153  =  0   years from  -4640
 -1487  Moses fled Egypt
	1  x  3153  =  3153   years from  -4640
