Part One: How all calendars harmonize in cycles of 40 years

And how all calendars integrate with the perfect number “seven”

Remember 2012 and the end of the world scare with the Mayan calendar? The Mayan calendar ended its 13th cycle on Dec. 21st, 2012. Each cycle has 144,000 days, (that is 360 x 400 days). I posted the calendar converter at that time, which emphasized the 360-calendar.

Let us now add to this the Enoch calendar of 364 days. It is structured the same as the 360-calendar. The Book of Enoch informs us that the 364 and 360-day years are really one and the same, (Enoch 75:1). This is further evident when the two below tables are compared. The two calendars are highly compatible due to their 4-day difference. Observe the repetition of 4, 40, 400, and 4000 in these calendars.

Last year I posted eight methods that the Enoch calendar can be intercalated. Each was ascribed to one of the eight angels of the Book of Enoch in keeping with the spirit of that book. However, this new method of intercalation is for men, at least that's the way I personally designate it. It was discovered Sept. 22-23, 2020, although David Rooke and myself pondered a solution similar to this two years ago.

Please see the end of this post for specifics on the Julian day year in 6 BC for the New Year on Enoch's 364-day calendar.

Observe below how the 7th cycle is distinguished from the previous six — stylized after Creation when God worked six days but rested on the 7th.

A “leap month” is 30 days on the 360-calendar.  A “leap week” on the Enoch calendar, of course, is seven days. Thus, seven leap months/weeks are inserted (intercalated) within each 40-year cycle. This is similar to the seven leap-months of the Metonic 19-year cycle of the lunar calendar observed by Jews today. Seven is the number of days of Creation.

One can easily see why the Gregorian year of 365.2425 can use the same pattern of creation of seven intercalations within a 40-year cycle employing leap months of 30 days, and also leap weeks of seven days, (and even leap days as with our modern method). It’s because the numbers three, seven, and four dominate the equation for a solar year.

“In the beginning” the year was 365.2425 days

About 4000 BC when God created the sun and moon according to a literal interpretation of the Bible, the actual solar year was indeed about 365.2425. The below formula for the Gregorian year of 365.2425 as used in our calculations is both accurate and elegant — something one would expect from God who created the sun and moon on the fourth day, that is, ‘in the middle of the week’ (seven).

Arranged like creation: “3 days of forming plus 3 days of filling plus 1 day of rest” (Gen. 1)


Arranged like a menorah – a palindrome
Solar year of 365.2425 arranged like a menorah. (See Gen 1:14-19; 15:12,13,17)

As explained before, when 13 and seven come together in some way it signifies the ‘undoing or reversing the curse (13)’. Example: 13 x 7 x 4 seasons equals the 364 days of the Enoch cal. Now add the outer three branches as it moves towards the center. 13 + 7 + 13 = 33, (or even, 40, due to the overlap of the middle seven).

A burning bush -- The Perfect Trinity?
3 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 773 = 146097 days. Just for fun, total the mean of the 16 prime factors of 146097. It's '6 x 6 x 430'. See Gen. 15:13 and Ex. 12:40. Add each digit in 146097 together: Equals 27, that is, 3 x 3 x 3. Recall the meaning of 7 and 13 together. Add the digits of 365 and its remainder.2425, They equal 14 {7 x 2} and 13 for total again of 27 {3 x 3 x 3).

The earth, sun, and moon are round — so if you were God, why not have the formula for a circle, “π”, encoded in the length of the year?

(A formula for Pi.) y =year, g = generation, w = week, s = second. Each term is successively more accurate to π, reaching 14 decimals of pi. The last term can also be written as 100 jubilees, ie 4900 years. Notice that “y = 365, g = 70, w = 7” is Daniel’s “seventy weeks of years” from Daniel 9:24-27, whereas the similar “g g y” (i.e., 70 generations”) is the time allotted for the imprisonment of the angels as per the Book of Enoch, 10:12. Perhaps this is the greatest evidence given to modern man that God created all things. If you know someone with even a basic understanding of math, astronomy or Bible prophecy, please email the formula to them along with this brief explanation or put it on Facebook!
y =year, g = generation, w = week, s = second

As compared to our Gregorian Calendar

The Gregorian calendar is what is used throughout most of the world, including the United States.

  • We add a leap day is added every four years
  • Every 400 years also has a leap day, but the other three centuries do not
    • This produces an average solar year of 365.2425, the same as the 360 and 364-Enoch calendars
General observations
  • Notice the reoccurrence of cycles 4, 40, 400, and 4000 within all calendar systems. This explains why this number is so frequent in the Bible — because God created the sun and moon on the 4th day, Gen. 1:14-19
  • Observe that the last 4 years of the 40-year cycle of both the 360-calendar and the Enoch have “1470 days” (49 x 30) after 400 years
    • It’s the four-day difference between 360 days (12 months) and 364 days (52 weeks) that create this harmony
  • Perfect solar eclipses, unique to our planet, is possible because the sun is 400 times further away from earth than the moon, but the sun is 400 times larger than the moon so that the apparent size to our eyes remains the same
  • Observe that every 40 years, 7 x 7 days are added on the Enoch calendar, a ‘perfect’ number. Therefore, when the extra week is added after 400 years, then 490 days accumulate, that is, “70 weeks” add one.
    • Or viewed as “7 weeks + 62 weeks plus one week {+ 7}, at the end of the “400 years in Egypt”, cf., Daniel 9:24-27
  • Even the Mayan calendar is made up of cycles of 400 x 360 days (144,000, “baktun”) — although divided as 7200 x 20

The lunar calendar is well suited to this pattern as well. However, instead of 400 years, there are 399 (7 x 3 x 19) instead. This means that every 40 x 40 years (less four) all calendars overlap.

We explain the lunar connection next.

Two intersecting 400-year periods on the Enoch calendar

Details about Enoch calendar

There are two intersecting 364-day calendars:

The first began at Creation and seven cycles of 400 years later are when Israel entered the Promised Land in the spring of 1406 BC. Creation from this perspective was 4206 BC, (very close to the Samaritan Pentateuch Creation date of 4200 BC).

The second intersecting cycle began when the angel Gabriel came to announce the birth of John the Baptist and of Christ (about) the spring of 6 BC, (Luke 1). Therefore, retroactively, Creation was 4006 BC. (Recall the 360-calendar cycle of 4000 years.)

There is also the 14006 BC “Creation”, as discussed in earlier posts — but this does not affect anything because 14000 years is 35 x 400. Note how special 1995 AD is. (Remember, when one goes from BC to AD, add a year — there is no such thing as Year “0” on our Gregorian calendar!)

Compare the below incomplete selection of 400-year cycles and observe how the “200 years” intersect one another. (The 400 years from 1406 to 1006 BC was just omitted to keep the chart small. It would look the same.)

Rows 1, 3, and 5 are from 1406 BC. Rows 2, 5, and 6 are from 6 BC.

The Enoch calendar is simple! However, there are two points of time for the 400 years, and they happen to be exactly 1400 years apart. The effect of this is to have alternating periods of 200 years. Therefore, for 200 years the festivals overlap one another, then for 200 years, one is a week ahead of the other. This also means that in the beginning, the lunar calendar intersected the week because the calendar of Enoch begins in the middle of the week of creation, that is, on Wednesday morning.

Enoch’s 364-calendar begins at the Julian day of #1719320. (I.e., 6 BC, Wednesday 6 AM {Julian March 31st, Greg. March 29th}, which was Nisan 11th on the lunar calendar that year. Its next 400-year cycle is in 400 years. (Note: the cal. converter incorrectly reads Nisan 12th for this day, due to the accumulative error this far back in time with the Metonic cycle.)

However, from the perspective of 1406 BC (Julian #1207977, i.e., March 25th Gregorian), exactly 511336 days later the New Year fell one week earlier on Julian #1719313. (#1719313 is 6 BC, Wednesday 6 AM {Julian March 24th, Greg. March 22nd}, which was Nisan 4th –that is, the anniversary of the 4th day of creation when the sun and moon were created as per the lunar calendar, Gen. 1:14-19). Its next 400-year cycle is in 200 years. (The cal. converter incorrectly reads Nisan 5th for this day, due to the accumulative error this far back in time with the Metonic cycle.)

It is easy to work out the date of the New Year on the Enoch calendar because 400-years on the Enoch calendar is the same as 400-year on our Gregorian calendar. See the Calendar Converter.


Therefore, from 206 to 406 AD the two parallel 400-year cycles synchronize, that is the New Year and all festivals fall on the same day.

This means that all the sections on the chart that are not colored in beige have the same dates. This also means that for 200 years prior to 1995 AD the New Year harmonized, but for 200 years after 1995, (1995 became March 22nd and 29th), the New Year is one week apart. For example, both the mornings of Sept. 16th and Sept. 23rd (Wednesday) began the seventh month (Feast of Trumpets) on the Enoch calendar.

"Coincidentally", the revelation about the 400 -year cycle on the 364-calendar was also revealed the morning of Sept. 23rd, 2020. Moreover, the New Year on the 360 calendar began 3.5 days earlier, which runs evening to evening, thereby dividing the week in half.

Also, 400 years earlier to the very day the Mayflower set sail for the New World. Consider the astounding Signs on the Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashannah, 2020.

Sections in white harmonize. However, the New Year in the beige sections are one week apart from one another

    1. I know we want to keep things simple on the “Simplified” corresponding dates tables, but because the new year changes by 7 days after Autumn 1994, maybe there could be a separate Julian Day for the ‘From Christ 6BC’ Rows as well. Although, just adding 7 days could work too.

      1. I left it out because I reasoned that you have the detailed version as an option, good job, and secondly, most do not even know what a Julian number is anyway, so for that person I figure that if they know about Julian numbers, then they can figure out the rest on their own no problem.

  1. Hi Dean,
    In the addendum to the article “How the 364-Day Calendar Works” you said,
    “The simper starting point, therefore, is 189 days earlier, that is, Julian #1719313. (I.e., 6 BC, Wednesday 6 AM {Julian Jan. 22, Greg. Jan 24th}”
    Did you mean March 22/March 24?

    I believe I proposed a similar 40- year Enochian Calendar intercalation method back on October 28, 2018, in the Email Topic labeled “Enoch epagomenal (intercalary) week”.

    I guess it wasn’t far off.

    Of course “almost correct” isn’t t the same as “correct”.

    What I wrote to you at the time:
    “I found that indeed, the 40 year 360-Calendar and 364-day Epagomenal Week method work in harmony at 280 (40*7) years intervals. I’m sure the way you laid it out is correct. I worked out something a little different, while using my calculator.
    6*364 days+7 days= 2191 days
    2191days*6 Cycles= 13146 days
    Last cycle 364*4 years +7days=1463 days
    13146+1463= 14609 days (40 years)…..”

    God Bless!

    1. Thanks for pointing out that slip in the month. I did mean March.

      Wow. I am so sorry. I probably missed that email.

      Then we both came independently to the same deduction concerning the 40-years — not sure why I overlooked it back then.

      Once again, my apologies.

      I also thought of the 280 years, but the 400 is much more accurate.
