6-29-18, THE 360 DAY YEAR PROPHETIC CALENDAR
The Jews kept various mostly lunar/solar calendars over the ages, so how could we decide which calendar the Lord meant for us to use in Old Testament prophecy?
The 360 day calendar that was applied to the math in this study, is a component of this "language" of prophecy. Just as a day never literally equals "a year," it is unlikely that anyone kept a continuous 360 day calendar without periodic adjustment, or winter would have switched with summer in the calendar year, about every 35 years. One early calendar, for example, was adjusted by adding a 30-day month every six years to compensate for the discrepancy. Scripture offers few clues regarding days, months and years to suggest a "language" for prophetic years, but one is found in the account of the flood in Genesis:
"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. v24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days. 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat." Genesis 7:11, 24, 8:4
In the above verses we find a period of 5 months that total 150 days constituting 30 day months that may suggest a 360 day year. In order to convert these prophetic "years" to the solar years of our historical record we divide 360 by 365.24 to arrive at a multiplier of .9857.
Only by applying this calendar uniformly and having the several Old Testament problems that span from 480 to 1335 years repeatedly confirm this "language", may we conclude that our understanding from Genesis is likely correct. Certainly the odds against the several problems conspiring with this kind of mathematical precision, to be an accident, are astronomical. It's readily apparent that this calendar could not log 150 days over any 5 consecutive month period, as our 360 day prophetic year calendar in the account of the flood in Genesis does.
WHY NOW? Why can we only just now begin to see this whole picture?
THE BOOK WAS SEALED!
Daniel 12:4, 9 God told Daniel, "...shut up the words and seal the book, [even] to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. v9 Go thy way, Daniel: for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end."
It wasn't until after the events of 1948 and 1967 had passed that we could check both ends of most of the prophetic math problems assigned to us through prophecy. So how reliable are the doctrines that professed to understand the book of Daniel before this "time of the end"? [not very!] Another seal Daniel may have applied is the bifidic and chiasmic forms of Hebrew poetry.
