“Son of man, can these bones live?” Ezek. 37
30 years ago to the day the Lord began to unravel the mystery of the numbers in the Bible in all its array, (Oct. 22, 1991). Today I sense completion with the “Ezekiel Code”.
Lord willing, from this day on is a new emphasis on putting meat to the bones of the numbers & patterns in the Bible. This means interpreting the Bible with an eye to its underlying numeric equivalent.
The Ezekiel Code Chart
I will not explain these charts in detail at this time. The diligent student will understand on their own. They will know the joy of discovery as they use the chart like a tool to dig for gold.
The Ezekiel Code makes sense of all the dates contained in the Book of Ezekiel — the most dated book in the Bible. These dates are there for a reason! They produce a complex numeric puzzle — a key to all Biblical numbers and patterns. It also directly bears on dates related to the birth and life of Christ — and to His Second Coming.
How the dates in Ezekiel form a pattern is nothing new. Many documents over the past 30 years mention it. However, after pondering Ezekiel again for about a week — on Oct. 16, 2021, it occurred to me that the symbolic dates not only align to the New Year of the captivities (by counting the number of days from each prophecy unto those New Years — “a day for each year”), but that a pregnancy period of 280 days is also included. Once I realized this then all the pieces fell together.
280-day pregnancy is the key (Rev. 12:2)
In the past, I often observed these 280 days but never quite understood it. I knew that the reoccurring theme of “the opening of Ezekiel’s mouth” was linked to the opening of the mouth of Zechariah, John the Baptist’s father, whose mouth was opened the day when John was named. (He was named on the 8th day, incl.).
Another clue to the importance of birth (and thus conception) within Ezekiel’s chronology is that the book begins by dating his call as a priest to when he was born, as well as to the captivity of 597 BC. Using one’s birth as a datum and combining it with a civil datum is unique and foreshadows the datum of the birth of Christ our “great high priest”, (Heb. 4:14). Therefore, the New Year of 622 BC spring, (& 623 autumn?) was the datum of Ezekiel’s birth, (Lev. 25).
This is certain because that year was also the 16th jubilee (16 x 49) from when Israel entered the Promised Land (1406 BC) and the span of Ezekiel’s ministry lasted one jubilee — until the 17th jubilee of his temple vision. (AD 2025 is the 70th jubilee).
Every jubilee resets its count of days as commanded. Thus, the jubilee is its own ongoing datum, reset every 49 years. The chart does not utilize the jubilee datum in order to avoid excessive complexity.
In my thirtieth year, in the fourth month on the fifth day, while I was among the exiles by the Kebar River, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God. (NIV Ezek. 1:1)
…seven weeks of years shall give you forty-nine years.
He shall calculate with his buyer from the year when he sold himself to him until the year of jubilee… Lev. 25:8,50
In the chart, observe that the mouth of Ezekiel was opened upon the arrival of the first refugee, which thus corresponds to Symbolic Day Year (SDY) 6 BC to AD 2 as well as AD 275-282 (i.e., 280 days/years later). (Also notice 286-279 BC.)
Formula for the Ezekiel Code
Fact: In the Bible, events are dated from the New Year (spring) of the 597 BC exile. The 586 BC exile is also inferred from Ezekiel 40:1.
Fact: In the book of Ezekiel and Daniel, “A day can symbolize a year” (Dan. 9; Ezk. 4).
Fact: All 20 dates in Ezekiel (MT & LXX) use the digits 0, 1, 2, 5, or 7 for the day of the month. Thus, 3 (or 30), 4, 6, 8, or 9 are never used. This highlights the date of the fall of Jerusalem, which is not dated in Ezekiel. Jerusalem fell on the 9th of Tammuz. The odds of this to be mere chance is about one in a million. This implies a code.
“A day is as a year” (Ezk. 4; Dan. 9)
“6 BC to AD 2” spans a week of years. It symbolizes the birth & conception of Christ.
Count the number of days from each date in Ezekiel as if they were years unto this epoch (i.e., “6 BC to AD 2”). Use the Bible prophecy year of 360 days. (“390 days” is simply a year with a leap month, as is “1290 days”, Ezk. 4; Dan. 12.)
Carry forward the week “7 days” of Ezekiel’s call (5th to 12th) so that it overlaps every date in Ezekiel. Always begin with a “5” and end with a “2“, that is, either “5-12th” or “15th to 22nd” or 25th to 2nd. Every date in Ezekiel will then lodge into just one of these three weeks.
See the below chart for further clarification.
Footnotes: Date of siege: Some believe that the exiles were in 598-587 BC rather than 597-586. This does not change the chart, however. (“586 BC” is also part of the 430-year cycles, thus its datum is transferable back to the Exodus 430 + 430 years earlier. Thus, the temple began to be built “in the 480th year after the Israelites came out of Egypt”, which is when the tabernacle was built, 1Kings 6:1.
Thus, 190 + 190 more years makes it the 860th year (430 + 430) until when the temple was destroyed in 586 BC. Ezekiel laid on his side 430 years according to the Bible, but the LXX reads “190”, Ezek. 4. And so Israel and Judah paid “double” for all theirs sins, Isaiah 40:1-2.)

("586 BC" is also part of the 430-year cycles, thus its datum is transferable back to the Exodus 430 + 430 years earlier. Thus, the temple began to be built in "in the 480th year after the Israelites came out of Egypt" and the tabernacle was built, 1Kingsgs 6:1.Thus, 190 + 190 more years makes it the 860th year until the temple was destroyed in 586 BC. Ezekiel laid on his side 430 years according to the Bible, but the LXX reads "190", Ezek. 4. And so Israel and Judah paid "double for all theirs sins", Isaiah 40:1-2.
The number of days between the exile of Ezekiel (597 BC) and the exile of Jeremiah (586 BC) is exactly 11 years (11 x 360 + two leap months = 4020 days); and "4020" days" plus the "280" totals 4300. The whole structure is made up of 430s and 490s, as well as 1260, 1290, and 2300. Length of seige: Ezekiel informs us that from the start of the siege to the arrival of the first refugee was 1075 days (i.e., three years, 430 x 2.5 days). This means that the siege was 2.5 years long and not 1.5 years as some wrongly assert. Jerusalem fell at the beginning of Tam 9th, which is the middle of the same week and month of Ezekiel's call exactly 1260 + 1260 days earlier (seven years), cf., Dan. 9:24-27. This explains the anomalous use of a date that ends with a nine, (see formula). The use of a nine, here, symbolizes chaos, the "abomination that causes desolation". Compare this to the intentional skewing of the alphabetical acrostic in Book of Lamentations, which laments the fall of Jerusalem. (The temple burned down on the "7th" and "10th day" of Av, (Jer. 52:12; 2Kg. 25:8).
Footnote: There were three major exiles, 605, 597, 586 BC. The charts are based upon the dating used in the Book of Ezekiel, hence, 597 & 586 BC are used. However, one can infer that the first exile in 605 BC -- Daniel's exile -- is also part of this pattern. This makes March of 605 BC also a datum. If included, then Ezekiel's call on the 95th day of the New Year in 593 BC would mean SDY 4475 AD from the perspective of datum 605 BC, (i.e., 605 to 593 BC is 12 yrs.; 12 x 360 + two leap months + 95 days = 4475 days = SDY 4475 AD). 4475 AD is 120 jubilees (120 x 49) from 1406 BC (when Israel entered the Promised Land). Moreover, exactly 69 years from March of 605 BC is when Daniel received the revelation about the "70 weeks" (490 years), Dan. 9. There are exactly "70 years" of 360 days (12600 + 12600 days) in 69 years. See "The Key of 23".

The Exodus Code
As said, the Ezekiel Code is not new. It was discussed several decades ago. The Exodus Code connects with the Ezekiel Code because they are 430 +430 years, (1446-586 BC), “bone to bone”. (Both 1446 & 586 BC are datums in the Bible.)
He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” Ezek. 37
