Guide to Time Chart 3
(Strictly hypothetical… just to let you know it's a possibility.)
IF... the total span of time stretches from a possible Creation on 02-17-11013 BC, to a possible end on 02-23-2020 (two big 'if's),
THEN... this dayspan of 4,760,000 would define a slightly larger "playing field", covering:
ONE EXTRA WEEK beforehand, symbolizing the work done to save God's elect, accomplished "before the foundation of the world", AND...
(About) FIVE EXTRA MONTHS afterward, stretching to 07-17-2020 AD, the anniversary of 07-17-4990 BC, possibly the date when the water had prevailed for 150 days… likewise signalling the completion of the destruction phase in Noah's day, exactly 2,200,000 days after the creation of man (details).
Note: This dayspan requires an additional day to reach the full 4,760,000. Realizing that a day was once called an "evening-morning", we can claim the evening before the first day, and start the count on what was 02-09-11013 BC.
This dayspan is curious on several levels… If history is indeed defined from 11013 BC to 2020 AD (and we likely won't know until and if it does end there), then the huge even number 4760000 is hovering right in the area– it may be a fit as described. It is also curious, that its endpoint dates are factors of the number itself–
Dates 2-10 & 7-17; factors 2 x 10 x 7 x 17 (times 2000).
1600 x 1600 Days connect 2-23-2020 to 7-day Flood warning
05-21-2011 + 1600 days = 10-07-2015 + 1600 days = 02-23-2020
Oddly, this produces a sublimely even span of 2,560,000 days, or 1600 x 1600 (1600 squared), going right back to 4990 BC, the Flood year. The exact date pointed to– February 9, 4990 BC– is not insignificant, when using the Genesis-as-literal-Gregorian appoach (read more). At sundown on the 9th began the evening-morning containing the bulk of February 10th, which would have seen the seven-day warning before the Flood (Genesis 7:4).
As recent "doomsdays" approached in 2011, 2012, and 2015, the question would repeatedly arise, about the exact time-of-day for the event/s. Discussion included phrases like Midnight, Time-zone, Jerusalem, Sunrise, Sundown, Mid-day, Standard time, Local time, International dateline, and Rolling destruction. Replies like "I don't know" and "It doesn't matter" were frequently heard.
However, there is a curious astronomical detail about February 23, 2020 which would seem to provide an inspired solution: The moon and sun will be at their closest approach (at opposition) at 15:32 GMT, marking the exact moment of new-moon, technically ending the lunar month. Also at this minute we will see the sun set in Jerusalem, at 5:32 pm local time, marking the end of the day, by 'evening-morning' standards.
(The motion of the moon, and thus the timing of its phases, is not geared in any way with the cycle of day and night– the sun-moon conjunction can occur at any one of the 1440 minutes in a day.)
As for the timing of the Creation… February 23, 11013 BC can be demonstrated as the likely Saturday when God rested from his work, having completed the new universe (see Seeking an Actual Date for Creation). In this way, could Februaray 23, 2020 qualify as "the end of the year"– the time of the 'harvest'?
Exodus 23:16 And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.Further… would such an 'end of year' transition to the beginning of the 'year' when the elect will go to "such a city and continue there a year"? (James 4:13) ('year', meaning the completeness of time, as in, eternity)
Lastly, consider whether this moment of combined lunar and solar phenomena (i.e., absence), before the night stars become visible… will provide a literalist interpretation of Isaiah 13:10:
Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
So in seeming to describe the time, could this verse actually be pinpointing which day?
1600 days (first of two)
Revelation 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.This time would purportedly be characterized by the unavailability of salvation– God's elect would ostensibly already have been chosen, saved and sealed before the door would have been shut on May 21, 2011.
Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.Did the world end on October 7, 2015? Read on....
1600 days (second of two)
Then in 2017, it was noticed by this writer, that adding another 1600 days will land on February 23, 2020, a date with no Jewish holidays– yet significant on another level. If the world was created the week of Febuary 17-23, 11013 BC (see Seeking an Actual Date for Creation), then this will be the end of 13032 years for this present universe. So in a sense, it could be termed the "end of year". Also making this a curious day is the timing of the lunar month to end at the exact minute of local sunset in Jerusalem (details).
Thoughts on this doubling of the 1600:
Isaiah 40:2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins.Think of the physics of Revelation 14:20 ... A liquid (blood) emanating from a central source (winepress) for a distance of 1600 furlongs. If it came out in all directions by the space of 1600 furlongs, then we have a body of liquid measuring 3200 furlongs across. The question is, is 1600 the radius, or the diameter?
4.00 years leap time (1460 days) over 6023 years
1700 leap days
3700 Days; 3700 x 3 x 10 x 23 days
What ought to nudge us toward serious consideration of this thinking, is the appearance of a likewise even multiple of 3700 days, this time stretching the other way from the possible Flood date of 02-17-4990 BC, all the way to the dawn of our own (and final, we presume) millennium, namely 01-01-2001… a total of 3700 x 3 x 10 x 23 ( = 2,553,000) days. (Biblically, 23 is also Judgment; 3 is God's purpose.)
2156027 days & 1866023 days
We have here two large, seemingly random numbers. Yet the numbers to notice here are the last four digits of each– 6023 and 6027. While 6023 is familiar to many as the count of years from Creation to the Flood, there more to it than that. Hidden within the 2199855 days of 6023 years are 6027 'years' of 365 (the preferred calendar of the Egyptians, Aztecs and the Mayans).
Over 6023 years on our calendar, this other calendar will advance precisely 6027 years. Knowing this ratio of 365 to the true year, we can derive an accurate– perhaps definitive– value for the true year:
6027 ---- x 365 = 365 1460/6023 = 365.242404 days 6023
Author's inference: These numbers seem deliberately placed, as if to suggest that we are on the right track investigating 6023 & 6027, and that the timeline is correct concerning the 120-year warning which we have pegged at 5110 BC, as well as the Creation in 11013 BC.
Note that these timespans are not date-specific. They are shown here as January 1 to January 1, to illustrate the daycounts between the given years in general. Still, we are provided the clue that the actual date of interest (for Creation, the Flood, and their anniversary) should come in January or February, after which time the daycounts would be off by one, due to the gain or loss of leap days in 11013 BC and in 1 BC. (Read about the leap pattern for BC years)
For those hesitant to acknowledge the theory of Genesis-as-literal-Gregorian dating, the non-specific nature of these dayspans (i.e., January 1) should be non-threatening. At the same time, since February 17 is within the Jan-Feb range just mentioned, we find encouragement for those who would accept this theory of Biblical dating.
