Hurricane Hunter aircraft data, and surface observations indicate
that Delta has made landfall near Creole, Louisiana, around 600 PM
CDT (2300 UTC) with estimated maximum sustained winds of 100 mph
(155 km/h). NOAA
Hurricane Delta makes landfall just 10 miles from the place that Hurricane Laura made landfall just six weeks ago. Dalet made landfall as the 7th day of the Feast of Tabernacles closed. It may be the 17th billion dollar disaster of this year — a record. The previous record was three years ago and in 2005.
Among things of note:
All the ways Hurricane Delta is a historic storm
Delta is now the second-strongest storm of the year in the Atlantic Basin, only 5 mph behind Hurricane Laura, which reached 150 mph in the Gulf of Mexico. And when Delta strengthened to a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 145 mph, it cemented itself as the strongest Greek alphabet storm in history.
Delta’s current track has it heading northwest into the Gulf of Mexico late Wednesday, then turning due north as it approaches the US. Once it hits along the Gulf Coast, Delta will become the 10th named storm to make landfall this year in the continental US — the most in one year (after 1916, which saw nine landfalls). (CNN)
Delta has been, or will be, a noteworthy storm on a few levels. Among the notable marks:
First hurricane named after a letter in the Greek alphabet to make landfall in the continental U.S.;
Second storm named after a letter in the Greek alphabet to make landfall in the continental U.S. after Tropical Storm Beta, which made landfall near Port O’Connor, Tx., on Sept. 21;
Strongest storm ever named after a letter in the Greek alphabet, eclipsing Hurricane Beta (2005), which reached 115 mph;
Fastest storm to intensify from tropical depression to Category 4 storm in modern records. Delta beat Hurricane Keith (2000) by six hours for most rapid intensification;
The 10th named storm to make landfall in the continental U.S., beating the record nine established in 1916;
Fourth named storm to make landfall in Louisiana this year, joining Tropical Storms Cristobal and Marco and Hurricane Laura. That ties a mark established in 2002 among Tropical Storms Bertha, Hanna, Isidore and Hurricane Lilli. More than 6,600 Laura evacuees remain in hotels around the state, mainly in New Orleans, because their homes are too heavily damaged to return;
Earliest 25th named storm ever to form. The previous mark was established by Tropical Storm Gamma, which formed in the Caribbean Sea on Nov. 15, 2005;
Third major hurricane of the 2020 season, joining Laura and Teddy, which both were Category 4;
Second-strongest hurricane in the Atlantic basin this year at 145 mph, just 5 mph behind Laura. (Sun Sentinal)
Update on Oct 5th.
Delta went from a tropical depression to a Category 4 hurricane in about 30 hours from Monday to Tuesday.
At one point, Delta’s winds had increased by 85 mph in 24 hours. That’s the largest jump in wind speed in October since Hurricane Wilma in 2005, the last major hurricane to strike Cancun. (CNN)
Original post from Sunday, Oct. 4th, 2020.
I believe that God speaks in many ways, including the names of hurricanes.
Right now, it’s just classified as potential storm #26 by the National Hurricane Center. But it is expected to become Hurricane Delta before long. The storm by the same name held special importance 15 years ago and was predicted before it happened, even by name.
Update: Becomes “TS Delta” at 8 a.m., Oct 5, 2020, Tishri 17th, (i.e., the next day).
Only the second time ever Greek letters used
This is just the second time in history that Greek letters are used, having run out of regular names due to an overactive season.
I will add to this post as it unfolds.
The letter “Delta” (Dalet in Hebrew) means a doorway in greek, which is the same meaning as the name Ianus — the name of the hurricane that made landfall in Greece half-a-month ago as Rosh Hashannah began, (the Jewish New Year). Ianus is a false god who claims to be “The First and the Last” and holds the keys to doorways, including the underworld.
Take ‘leafy branches’ on the Feast of Tabernacles
In the above image from 15 years ago, notice that the Hebrew letter Dalet (Delta) can also mean, “A leafy branch”. Right now we are in the Feast of Booths. As I said in the earlier post today, during the Feast of Booths/Tabernacles the observant are to take “leafy branches” and make booths to tabernacle in.
On the first day you must take for yourselves branches from majestic trees–palm branches, branches of leafy trees, and willows of the brook–and you must rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days. Lev. 23:40
Also, notice the diagonal seven-branched Menorah that the open door sits upon, and this Menorah is also a “leafy tree” at a stream. (Click to enlarge. See document from 15 years ago for more information.) The Feast of Tabernacles is for seven days. Thus, it’s fitting that Delta would form in agreement with the BIble code. (Greek Delta took its name from Dalet, which can mean door or leafy branch.)
Tabernacles in the Book of Jubilees
Allow me to quote from the same verses from the non-canonical Book of Jubilees referred to in the earlier post today about Trump:
Therefore it is ordained in the heavenly tablets concerning Israel that they will be observers of the feast of booths seven days with joy in the seventh month which is acceptable before the LORD (as) an eternal law in their generations throughout all (time), year by year.
And there is no limit of days for this because it is ordained forever concerning Israel so that they should observe it and they should dwell in tents and that they should place crowns on their heads and so that they should take branches of leaves and willow from the stream. (See below leafy tree at the stream in the Picture Bible Code.)
And Abraham took branchesof palm trees and fruit of good trees and each day of the days he used to go around the altar with branches. Seven times per day, in the morning, he was praising and giving thanks to his God for all things. (Book of Jubilees 16:29-31)
This series of articles began when the Abrahamic Accord was announced back on Aug. 13, 2020. Posts in bold are particularly relevant to what is said here.
The Book of Jubilees is an ancient rewrite of the book of Genesis. It is not part of the Bible, but it does reveal how many Jews thought, at and before the time of Christ. It belongs in the same camp with the Book of Enoch quoted from in the New Testament.
I studied the Book of Jubilees intensely regarding its chronology last August. This happened to be the same time as the Trump peace treaty was announced (“The Abrahamic Accord”). The Book of Jubilees is far richer than scholars think. The author was not merely interested in harmonizing events with jubilees (7 x 7 years), but also with the number 23.
As it turns out, the Book of Jubilees isthe Samaritan Pentateuch chronology (which is the same as our Bible from Abraham to the Exodus); it has simply been stretched in a few places according to the acceptable rules known at the time concerning the number 23. Therefore, what is said in this post can also be inferred from your own Bible.
I noticed parallels between what was happening in the world with Trump and the Book of Jubilees as I studied the book in early August 2020. The parallels have only intensified since then. Below are the parallels in point form. You can interpreter them as you wish.
Note: The Exodus and Conquest were in 1446 and 1406 BC. These are the dates that I have always used for the past 30 years. They are the accepted dates by the majority of scholars today who believe in a literal Exodus. The Book of Jubilees puts Creation exactly 50 jubilees before 1406 BC when Israel entered the Promised Land. Thus, from the Creation in 3856 BC, the rest of the myriad of dates within this book are known. For example, according to the Book of Jubilees, Abraham was born 1981 BC, and so forth.
In the Book of Jubilees, Moses is patterned after Abraham. Moses was 80 years old when the plagues of Egypt began that lasted half-a-year, and so was Abraham. When Abraham went into Egypt for five years (1901 to 1986 BC), God plagued Egypt on account of his wife Sarah (Sarai). In 1986 BC, they left Egypt exactly 490 years prior to 1406 BC, (and thus 40 jubilees from Creation).
Five years before that, God called Abraham out of Ur (Babylon) “in the 7th month”, that is, September of 1906 BC.
Therefore…
There are 80 jubilees from 1906, 1901, and 1986 BC to 2015, 2020, and 2025 AD.
This is the “five + five-year” pattern that I spoke of in the earlier post, although I made no reference then to the Book of Jubilee. Consider this as confirmation of the “5 + 5-year extension”!
Therefore, from Adam (Creation), Abraham, and Christ until our time are 40, 80, and 120 jubilees, and also 70 from when Israel entered the Promised Land.
“40, 80, and 120” are also the breakdown of the 120-year of Moses’ life.
Is the world again plagued 80 jubilees later ‘on account of Sarah, Abraham’s wife’?
And what about 2025 AD?
Has the Church mixed with the world, and the world suffers for her sake?
Rosh Hashanah and the Feast of Booths
We are now in the 7th month, according to the Jewish calendar. This was an important month in the life of Abraham according to the Book of Jubilees.
Is it a coincidence that the “Abrahamic Accord” was signed as “Hurricane Sally” (nickname for Sarah) made landfall, which brought six-billion in damages to the United States? Keep in mind the “4000 years” and the “80 jubilees”.
Three days before Rosh Hashannah I said to watch for developments such as “hurricanes” three days from then, that is, on Rosh Hashanah — the Jewish New Year. (See video andWhy Peace Plan is 3.5 days before Feast of Trumpets Sept. 15, 2020.)
Then towards the eve of Rosh Hashanah — the month so important in the Book of Jubilees in regards to Abraham, events did unfold — signs so remarkable that the only thing more amazing than this was the blindness of God’s people not to notice!
In the Book of Jubilees, Abraham is the first to keep the Feast of Booths.
After the massive repentance rally at Washington, likely the same day that the corona plague began at the Whitehouse, and after the sign of the falling star seen across the Eastern Seaboard (including Washington), then came the manifestation of what was inside. The day after the falling star, Trump and seven others were found to have contacted the “Crown Virus”) (Coronavirus).
Then as Jews throughout the United States began to celebrate the Feast of Booths (first celebrated by Abraham), Trump went into a Hospital just as Friday evening approached. Therefore, as Jews began to live in humble abodes “Booths” in their backyards or balconies, Trump, too, has his own succot/booth/humble dwelling — there in the hospital. Compared to the regular dwellings of Trump, the hospital is humble indeed.
And according to the Book of Jubilees, during Succot (the Feast of Tabernacles), Jews ware to wear crowns as a sign that they will rule the nations.
Trump wore the Crown-Virus instead.
Can you see the irony?
Therefore it is ordained in the heavenly tablets concerning Israel that they will be observers of the feast of booths seven days with joy in the seventh month which is acceptable before the LORD (as) an eternal law in their generations throughout all (time), year by year.
^{ }And there is no limit of days for this because it is ordained forever concerning Israel so that they should observe it and they should dwell in tents and that they should place crowns on their heads and so that they should take branches of leaves and willow from the stream. (Book of Jubilees 16:29,30)
3.5 years from anniversaries of death, burial, and resurrection of Christ from Fri. Nisan 14 to 17 (with a drive around on 16th to proclaim victory over death)
The news comes after a chaotic day marked by Trump’s announcement early Friday morning that he and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive for Covid-19, followed by the sudden news Friday afternoon that he was being taken to Walter Reed at Conley’s recommendation.
Emerging from the White House residence at 6:16 p.m. ET for his first public appearance since announcing 16 hours earlier he had tested positive for coronavirus, Trump walked under his own power to his waiting helicopter and displayed no major outward signs of illness. (CNN)
Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way: 1 Sam.12:23
The writer of this paper put himself in the mindset of the esoteric believer of the second temple period who saw cosmology and timekeeping as an expression of divine order. Cloistered away for 30 years with this mindset allowed the author to view biblical arithmetic in unconventional ways, which nurtured rediscovery. Any overlap with others who may have discovered the same is accidental.
The author is indebted to the hard work of scholars who ascertained the Exodus to be 1446 BC and those who worked out the LXX chronology with its variant texts. (This paper keeps to the MT.)
The author views “inspiration of Scripture” as God working with frail men, even competing men, so as to guide and produce a masterpiece of synergy, in some ways similar to the scientific method. He corners them into Truth, even when they don’t like their own conclusion.
SYNOPSIS
The effects of different lengths of a year
Most numbers in the Bible have symbolic meaning.
“Twenty-three” is the number of transformation. It works in association with other numbers. It transforms other numbers when multiplied by 23. It does this by lengthening or shortening time, (Matt 24:22; Enoch 80:2). It’s the tool God uses to multiply grace, (‘5 x 5’), John 1:17.
23 lengths to 25
23 x 3 lengthens to 70
23 x 13 to 300
It does this by converting the solar year to a priestly year of 336 days, or to a strictly lunar year, or to a prophetic year of 360, or to the Enochian year of 364 days. What all four lengths of a year have in common is the multiplier 23. And the ancients noticed this commonality. For them, ’23’ resolved the very mystery of time. It was the common denominator that unified the sun, moon, and stars.
For information about the 336, 360, 364, and lunar year, see:
“23” stretches time like fabric and like bricks reshapes the biblical chronology into interlocking blocks. “23” tames irrational numbers, it rounds them like rugged rocks from a quarry.
In the righteous hand of the scribe, the twisted serpentine 23 transforms into a straight rod of rounded numbers such as 25, 70, 300, 490, 500, and 1800. It makes sense of it all; it brings order out of chaos.
Hidden in plain sight
Because 23 was associated with an elite priesthood, it was not meant for everyone to know. It was meant for priests and scribes, initiates into the Enochian tradition. As instructed, ‘the key of 23’ was hidden and sealed.
And thou, Daniel, close the words, and seal the book to the time of the end; until many are taught, and knowledge is increased. Dan. 12:4 Brenton Septuagint Translation
But how was it to be hidden and sealed?
Apparently, priests and scribes took this command quite literally. They sealed it within the Bible itself. They veiled it within the many numeric lists and customized chronologies. It was so well hidden that after the dispersion of 70 AD it was soon forgotten altogether.
The author has concluded that those of old, both Babylonian and Hebrew, worked out the end of their era to be 6 and 1 BC. The internal evidence itself leads to this conclusion. However, most of what is said here remains true no matter what date is set for the Exodus or Christ.

Chapter One: What the prophets say about “23”
Multiples of 23 are frequently found with the arithmetic of prophetic utterances. Some may be coincidental, but surely not all.
This was first discussed in a video about the "Abraham Accord" in August 2020.
There is only a small number of numeric prophecies in the Bible. Here is a list of numeric utterances with multiples of 23.
2300 (23 x 100) of Daniel 8 (expressed as “evenings and mornings”)
483 (23 x 21) of Daniel 9 (expressed as “69 weeks”)
Prophecy of Dan. 9 is predicated upon the previous 69 years from 605 to 536 BC but is called, “70 years”. ’69 = 70′; this is explained shortly
“…the 1335th day” of Dan.12. The text does not say, “1335 days”, but “touches upon the 1335th day”. In typical Book-of-Jubilees style, this means ‘1334 full days, plus part of the next‘. (1334 is 23 x 58)
1260 is already converted from 1242 (69 x 18) (Rev. 11:3; 12:6)
Examples: from the Flood to 27/29 AD are 1242 x 2 yrs, which converts to either 2520 or 2700 yrs (= 7 and 7.5 x 360 — links the 40 days of Flood with 40 days of Christ in the wilderness? From Creation to 27 AD are 23 x 180 & 60 x 69. And, from decree/return from exile in 538/7 BC to decree/return from exile in 1947/8 is also 1242 + 1242 yrs, or expanded to 574/3 BC of Ezek. 40.)
More obscure examples:
‘Seven’ with 430, (437 = 23 x 19). (I.e., ‘7 + 390 + 40’ of Ezek. 3:16;4:4,6. See endnote.)
Ezekiel began his symbolic siege of Judah on the 391st day. 391 (23 x 17) is often chronologically paired with 390. Example: It took one year for earth’s destruction by water, but in one day fire destroyed Sodom, which occurred 391 and 390 years later
Note: Terah's extra 60 years. The alternative extra 60 of Terah is ignored in this article in order to see the basic To create these patterns while maintaining multiples of prime-number 23 demonstrates a mastery of math. Here is an example that illustrates both the +60 of Terah and the '7 + 390 + 40' of Ezekiel.Arphaxad was born two years after the Flood and seven after the death of Lamech (at 777). Isaac is born 390 after Arphaxad and marries at 40. Thus, 7 + 390 + 40. With the alternative extra 60 years of Terah (Acts 7:2), 430 becomes 490 years and is thus 1274 from Lamech's birth. (364 x 3.5 = 1274 with Lamech's son Noah born at 182, that is, half-364.)
Without this 60 there are instead 1274 years from Lamech to the marriage of Esau, son of Isaac! 3240 to 1966 BC. See chart for 3240 and 1966 (MT) = 1751 (LXX/SP/NT) BC to 1446 and 1406 BC.
LXX reading of Ezek. 4 instead has 150/190 and 230 days! Does he mean 150 + 190 + 40, or just 190 + 40? Either way, 230 appears. (Ezekiel is repeated called “son of Adam בֶּן־אָדָם”, and according to the LXX, the original “son of Adam” was born 230 years after creation, whereas the MT has 130, that is, 1/3rd of MT’s “390”. The LXX, therefore, may be an attempt to maintain the בֶּן־אָדָם theme. Curiously, from the Seth of LXX to the Adam of MT are 1150 of Dan.8.)
(On his “left” side) And thou shalt lie upon thy left side, and lay the iniquities of the house of Israel upon it, according to the number of the hundred and fifty daysduring which thou shalt lie upon it: and thou shalt bear their iniquities. For I have appointed thee their iniquities for a number of days, for a hundred and ninety days: so thou shalt bear the iniquities of the house of Israel.
(On his “right” side) And thou shalt accomplish this, and then shalt lie on thy right side, and shalt bear the iniquities of the house of Juda forty days: I have appointed thee a day for a year. Brenton LXX Translation
New Testament examples
“276” (23 x 12) of Acts 27:37. It appears that Paul includes this information and incidentals such as “Castor and Pollux” because he sensed that the shipwreck and deliverance was a real-life parable of the future of the world and God’s people. This is why the strange prophecy in Acts 27:31. Counting, measuring, and time often overlap in symbolism (Rev. 11:1-3)
The “46 years” of temple construction
There are exactly 100 priestly cycles in 46 years, which equals 50 priestly years
They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” (John 2:20; also see John 8:57)
John wrote the Book of Revelation and is no stranger to numeric symbolism; for example, the “153 fish” of John 21:11.
“46 years”: The evidence for an intentional connection to 23-years is strong. There are 46 years (23 x 2) from the Exodus/tabernacle to when Israel rested from war, (see chart). And from this 46 years to the 46 years of John happen to span 46 x 31 years. (‘1446/5 BC to 1400/1399 BC‘ unto ’20/19 BC to 27/28 AD’.)
There are 1380 years from when the land rested from war unto Herod’s temple, (1400/1399 to 20/19 BC). This is an important observation when the Seder Olam Rabbah is discussed later.
Behold the Lamb of God!
Thus, the Exodus to Christ converts from 1472 to 1600 years, that’s ’40 x 40′ to when Christ went into the desert 40 days, just as Israel did, “a day for each year of their sin”, Num. 14:34; Ezek. 4. (Also, see 3680 years from Jarod; converts to 4000.)
Christ died three years after His announcement that He would raise a ruined temple in three days, (John 2:20). Therefore, Christ died 49 years from when the temple began to be built, a jubilee that culminates in the 50th year. (46 converts to 50. John 8:57.)
23000 living and dead
The “23000” of Num. 3:39 and 1Cor. 10:8 is conspicuous. As we shall see, “23” was the priestly number that makes right a wrong and straitens that which is crooked. It’s the mathematical equivalency of animal sacrifice, so very important when captive far away from the temple. According to the census in 1445 and 1407 BC (exactly ‘half-77’ years apart), the Levities dropped from 22000 to 23000 people, (Num. 3:39; 26:62).
Immediately before the second census, a plague kills “24000”, (but which Paul says was “23000”, 1Cor. 10:8). It was the last plague on that doomed “generation”, (Deut. 2:14: Num. 26:62-65). Phinehas, a Levite, stops the plague. God then makes a “covenant of peace” with the Levite, Phinehas, “a lasting priesthood”, (Num. 25).
The Joining of the three ‘Joinings’, לָּוֶה ,דָּבַק ,צָמַד
Let us calculate the dead and the living.
“22000 dead” Levites (Num. 26:62-65) joined with the “24000 dead” at Peor, plus the “23000 living” Levites equals 69000. (46000 + 23000 = 23000 x 3).
With that numeric in mind, ponder the “joining צָמַד” of the two adulters by the spear of Phinehas, Num. 25:5-9. Keep in mind that most who died that day were from the tribe of Simeon, Levi’s closest brother. Simeon was joined with Levi under a curse that involved the rape of their sister 460 years (MT) before the Exodus. But here the curse is reversed. The Simeonites die joined in sexual sin in contradistinction to Levi, who is released from the curse by an act of righteousness.
Moreover, the name Levi means “joined לָּוֶה”! According to the LXX/SP/NT, the joining/conception of Simeon and Levi occurred 299 (23 x 13) years before the joining with the Midianites women and conquest of Canaan, (1706,5 BC to 1407,6 BC).
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi. Gen. 29:34
Is the average of these numbers, (22000 and 24000), and 23000 why Paul said: “23000 died” rather than 24000?
Was it an acknowledged midrash מִדְרָשׁ at the time?
As said, “460 years” is linked to sexual perversion in the biblical chronology, such as the sins of the watchers in the days of Jarod, and here again with the Midianite women, (Enoch 6; Num. 25). There are 460 years from this incident unto Solomon’s palace. It was constructed both for himself and the foreign women whom he “joined דָּבַק himself to in love”, (1Kings 7:8; 9:10; 11:1-25). (Enoch 10:10 appears to mean that the life span of the 200 watchers will be cut short from “500 years” to presumably 460.)
This is now the third Hebrew word that means “to join”, דָּבַק ,צָמַד ,לָּוֶה, and all three join by multiples of 23, that is, “23 x 13” and “23 x 20” just like Solomon’s construction period of ‘7 + 13 = 20 years’. Moreover, both censuses and Solomon’s construction begin and end ‘in the 2nd and 8th month’, (1Kings 6:37-7:1). (The Levities were numbered “30-days and older”, thus tying the two censuses to the 2nd and 8th month, Num. 1:18; 3:39).
Double brackets around a doomed generation
Paul’s “23000” likely involved two incidents of idolatry merged as one, but that is outside the scope of this study. But briefly, the 3000 killed by the Levites in Exodus 32 and the 22000 Levites of the Census commence the generation under God’s wrath and concludes it with the 24000 of Peor and 23000 of the second census of Levites. Phinehas reverses the damage his grandfather Aaron did when the 3000 died. The priesthood and highpriesthood are justified to continue as a lasting priesthood. The resulting numeric is telling.
3000 + 22000 = 25000, (the expansion of 23000. 25 is 5 x 5)
This total (25000) plus the 24000 at Peor equals 49000, (an important sacred number. 49 ix 7 x 7)
49000 + 23000 = 72000. (Another sacred number; half-144000. 72000 is also 200 x 360 and may hint at the sexual sin of the 200 watchers-angels that fell according to Enoch 6; Gen. 6. Note the ‘144000 redeemed undefiled virgins’ of Rev. 7:4.)
Or counted in reverse are 69000 + 3000 = 72000
Paul’s helper, Luke, records 3000 saved at Pentecost (Acts 2:41), and the “Royal Priesthood” began. This is an obvious parallel to Ex. 32. 72000 + 3000 = 75000. (Recall that 69000 can convert to 70000 or 75000). Acts 4:4 makes 77000
Luke’s genealogy also has 75 generations to Christ, and 77 including Christ and “God”, (Luke 3:23-27)
The “4600 Levites” of Davids census at Hebron (1Chron. 12:26)
The “4600 Levites” were counted about 400 years after 1407 BC when the Levites were numbered at “23000”.
“23000” is 4600 x 5
One might even say that the “4600 Levites” here can be added to the previous “23000 Levites” to total the very symbolic number of 27600, (’10 x 2300′ + ‘2 x 2300′ = ’12 x 2300′, like the ’10 + 2’ tribes of Israel and Judah, 1Kings 13:30,31).
Next, after listing the Levites at 4600 is 3700 of the family of Aaron so that the grand total in the Census thus far is 22200. Next comes the “22” of the faithful highpriest Zadok that conspicuously now totals 22222. This signals that “22” is the priestly variable in the list.
And added up to Benjamine are 25200 (70 x 360), and to Ephraim is 46000.
“Men of Issachar” were initiates into the Enochian tradition
Then there is Issachar, “men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do”. They numbered “200”, (1Chron. 12:32).
Traditionally, they were timekeepers. They understood the motions of the sun, moon, and stars. Evidently, they saw themselves as replacements of the “200” that rebelled in the days of Jarod, (Enoch 6). Furthermore, they memorialized this fact in the previous list. There, Isshacar happens to number ‘145600’, which is 364 x 400 — thus connecting themselves to the 364-day year of the Enoch scribal tradition, (1Chron. 6-7).
We do not have time to go through the lists in the Bible, but clearly, they were rounded in favor of mathematical patterns. It was a puzzle for the initiated. They told a story, not merely dry facts.
From these lists and other clues, David’s infamous census occurred 25-years into his reign ‘when Satan rose up against Israel”, 1Chron. 21. This was 986 BC, 460 years after the Exodus, either literally or idealistically. The most obvious clue to this is 1Chron. 23:24. It implies that they began to build the temple “20 years” later (986 to 966 BC).
From Satan, in the garden of Eden (LXX 5494 BC Creation) to 986 BC is 4508 years, which converts to 4900. This is the same length of time that the rest of the ‘Satans’ (Accusers) would be bound, Enoch 10:12. And another 490 + 490 to the birth of Christ and his census (Luke 2) for a total of 120 jubilees.
Note: The Book of 1Chronicles nearly always rounds into even numbers, of which 22222 is one example.
Key of 23: Known, yet unknown
It appears likely that the key of 23 was well known within the elite inner circle of scholars from at least the time of Daniel unto the Apostle Paul. The Babylonians were also aware of it.
Both groups considered the key of 23 as recovered knowledge that existed before the Flood, from the days of Enoch. (Enoch was known by another name in Babylon.)
New Age, New Datum
Moreover, both Jews and Babylonian scholars apparently had the same terminus post quem for the end of their age. The end of that age was determined long ago by both groups to be 6 BC and 1 BC, (although at times expressed as -5 and 0). No wonder the Magi knew the importance of so small a sign as a star appearing at that time.
Mathematical Language predates Babel and the Flood
The various chronologies of Biblical scholars and Babylonian scholars follow the same rules and because of this are compatible. They interweave with one another.
The key of 23 is the cryptic framework upon which every verse in the Bible hangs, as flesh does on bone.
Chapter Two: How the priestly, lunar, 360, and 364-day years convert with 23
Note: It cannot be stressed enough that it is the specific multiples of 23 that are important. For example, a burial place is purchased for Sarah for "400 shekels" (Gen. 23:15) -- indicative of the prophesied "400 years in Egypt". 1814 to 1446 BC is 368 and converts to 400 years -- as explained next.
Covenants from Adam to Sinai thread together with multiples of 23 (Masoretic Text)
In the below chart calculate the number of internal combinations of multiples of 23-squared (excluding the LXX). (“23 x 23” and “23 x 23 x 2” both occurs twice, and “23 x 23 x 3” occur once.)
Also, observe how many times multiples of 13, 15, 17, and 19 occur internally. (We discuss the importance of these combinations later.) This underscores the fact that the appearance of multiples of 23 is not what’s important, but rather the specific multiples of 23, and where.
Naturally, multiples of 23 will appear randomly. However, obtaining the probability is difficult because it’s the specific multiple that’s important. For example, 1656 to the Flood converts to 1800, thus 2300 to Shem’s death. It’s the weaving of specific 23’s with other cycles such as generations of 40, 70, and 100, or with jubilees, etc., that’s ingenious.
Note: Then there is the residual 23 that is discussed later. 460 to Jarod equals 500, and 69 x 6 to Lamech equals 420. However, '500 + 420' in combination is 920, which in turn equals 1000 years -- an important timespan in that it stems from Creation!
From Lamech to when Israel rested from war is 80 x 23, which converts to 2000. Thus, 1000 + 2000 years from when God rested on the 7th day to when Israel rested from war! "A day is as a thousand years", 2Pet. 3:8.
1446 BC is a pillar date -- a new datum. 1446 BC less 46 years (46 = 50) becomes as 1396 BC, and thus 2990 (23 x 130) to 1406 BC, which converts again to 3000. (299 = 300). Residual 23's take on a life of their own.
Creating order out of chaos
What if unruly numbers such as “276” (Acts 27:37) could transform into something identifiable such as ‘seven generations of 40 years’, or ‘four generations of 70’, or ‘three generations of 100 years’? Numbers like 280 and 300, in turn, might form still larger blocks of time with acknowledged symbolic value — a code — a language.
The ancients knew the language. Their lists and chronologies are the ancient equivalents of computer code.
23 regularsolar yearsequal 8400 days with 23/40th of a day remaining (or rounded to 7/12th of a day). And there are 8400 days in 25 priestly years
Therefore 23 solar years can convert to 25 priestly years
The small remainder of 23/40th (or 7/12th) of a day in accounted for within the conversion — as we shall demonstrate
Example: “276” becomes 7 x 40 with exactly 7 days remaining
Example: 460 yrs from Creation to Jarod (when the angels transgressed) equals 1000 priestly cycles of 168 days, which is 500 Priestly years, (Enoch 6:6)
Because three-times “8400” equals 25200 days, this means that ‘3 x 23’ (69 years) is the same as 70 years on the 360 calendar (without leap months).
25200/360 = 70
Therefore 69 solar years can convert to 70 prophetic years on the 360-day calendar without its leap months, (as well as the said 25 x 3 priestly years)
The remainder, therefore, is 23/40th (or 7/12th) of a day times three
Daniel 9:24-27 demonstrates this best and explains Ezra’s 12-day delay, (Ezra 7:8;8:31)
23/40 x 21 (cycles of 23) = 12.075 days
The Enoch year of 364 days also converts a multiple of 23 into a symbolic number.
364-Calendar and “23 x 13″(299)
The Enoch calendar has a year of 364 days, with four seasons s of 13 weeks. Seven and thirteen have come to symbolize perfection and imperfection/curse respectively. Found in combination it depicts reconciliation. The 23 in combination with 13 maintains the symbolism.
Unlike “23” and “60”, 299 is not the closest integer to a full-year difference to a solar year. 294 years is.
294 is six jubilees and every 294 solar years there is a surprisingly near-perfect integer of 293 (292.9999). This is likely why the Book of Jubilees (4:21) has Enoch in heaven 294 years rather than just one as per the Book of Enoch, (Enoch 81:6). Both books knew the rules but approached it differently.
Example in MT: from Creation to the Exodus is 2668 years (4114 to 1446 BC). 2668/23 = 116. Because 23 converts to 25 Priestly years, thus 116 x 25 = 2900. 2900 plus the 40 years to the Conquest in 1406 BC equals 2940 years, which is 60 jubilees.
23 x 13 solar years (299) converts to 300 prophetic years on the 364-day calendar (without its leap-weeks)
The remainder is 23/40th (or 7/12th) of a day times 13. This equals the 7.5-days of Creation. (The switch from evening to morning in the calendar of Enoch creates the extra half-day)
This explains why Enoch lived 365 instead of 364 years. 365 years of 364 days are364 solar years. Thus, Enoch lived 300 (299) years after the birth of his son; 65 + 299 (300) = 364 (365), Gen. 5:21-23. The Book of Enoch also implies this, Enoch 81:6
It explains the two-year chronological oddity at the Flood with the 600 of both Noah and Shem: It allows the code to also read 299 x 2
And the 299 x 6 from Lamech to the Exodus becomes as 5 x 360 years (with “437“ x 2 more to Creation, and “391“ x 2 to the Flood. We look at 391and 437next
So far, the uneven numbers 23, 69, and 299 can be converted to the even and rounded numbers of 25, 70, and 300. (The “300” appears often, a flexible number within the Babylonian base 60 system.)
So far we have looked at the solar calendars.
But what about the purely lunar year?
The lunar year, unadjusted by leap months, is still used throughout the Arab world today.
391 solar years equals “23 x 31” lunar years
It happens that 23 x 17 (391 solar years) equals almost exactly 403 (13 x 31) lunar years (without leap months) This astonishing fact did not escape the notice of the ancients. This will be explained in future documents, (Gen. 11:13, 15.)
But for now, note that “17” is a sacred compound number. It is 7 + 10. (Moreover, 17 years has exactly 230 x 3³ days, less 7²/20² of a day.) And “13 x 31” of the lunar calendar is a cursed number. As said before, whenever 13 and 7 come together it signifies redemption, a perfecting of the imperfect. And “23” is the priestly power that transforms chaos into order, the serpent into a rod –an important function when in Exile away from temple sacrifices.
23 x 17 solar years (391) can convert to 403 lunar years (or the other way around). (And ’23 x 17′ also converts to the Priestly year as explained.)
403 strictly lunar years = 142,809.93 days, which is almost exactly 391 solar years
365.2425 x 391 = 142,809.8175 days
Actual difference between the two was nearly nil at around 4206 BC
142,800 days is also 17 x 8400 days, with ten days remaining — which as we shall see is linked to the Day of Atonement on the 10th day, Lev. 16:29
Therefore, because 17 x 8400 converts to 17 x 25 priestly years (i.e., 425 priestly years), the accursed lunar number of 403 (13 x 31) is tamed into 425
Example: From the Flood to destruction of Sodom, 391 years
For “403 years”, see Gen. 11:13, 15
391 is usually paired with 390 of Ezek. 4, (13 x 30), and for 437 (‘7 + 390 + 40’ of Ezek. 3:16;4:4,6), see endnote.
The Great Year of Precession is “49 x 23 x 23”
The ancients, including the Bible, recognized that ‘a day was as a year and a year as a day’, (Ezek. 4). In a similar vein of thinking, every 72 years equaled a day of Precession. Thus, the Precession of the Equinox was rounded to 72 x 360 years, which is 25920 years. The entire span of 25920 years was considered a “Golden Year”, or a “Great Year”.
Now, a jubilee in the Bible is 49 years (7 x 7). Like the jubilees of the Israelites, the Year of Jubilee is also the first year of the next cycle. It happens that 25921 years is 49 x 23 x 23, or 161-squared — a most powerful number indeed! And without the “7/12th-of-a-day” remainder, 8400 x 49 x 23 days equals the 25920th year anyway, (9466800/365.2425=25919.22 years.) The Great Year is most clearly seen in the Sumer Tablets of Babylon and intersects with the Biblical chronology at numerous junctures.
The miracle of the 4th day of Creation
The fact that one number — number 23 — so wonderfully converts all awkward numbers into tame straightened numbers, like a serpent into a rod, is surprising.
All five convert from the solar year of 365.2425 days into the Priestly year, but 69, 299, 345, 391 and 25920 also convert into the “—— year”:
23 (23 x 1) years of the 336 Priestly-year
69 (23 x 3) of the 360 Prophetic-year
299 (23 x 13) of the 364 Enochian-year
345 (23 x 15) of Eclipse-year. Converts to almost 364. See endnote
391 (23 x 17) of the Lunar-year of 354.367066
437 (23 x 19) cycle of Metonic lunar cal. Doesn’t convert other than Priestly year, but cycle occurs in Bible.See endnote
25920/1 (23² x 7²) years of precession converts to “The Great Year”
The key of 23 is the elephant in the room, and the ancients noticed.
Observations: All of these cycles show up independently in the Biblical chronology from Creation to the Exodus at least twice each. (This includes 25920/1 years from the Babylonian Flood date of 27366 BC to the Exodus/tabernacle in 1446/5 BC, and thus 70 x 360 to Abraham in 2166 BC.)
Interestingly, all seven multiples of 23 are odd numbers and most are 46 years apart.
All this is the product of the constraints of the sun, moon, and stars at Creation.
And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so.
God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. Gen. 1:14-19
Residual 23
The favored position is when the conversion of 23 recreates another 23 — at times taking on a life of its own. This may seem absurd by today’s standards until one realizes that good code is flexible.
Example: From the covenant reiterated to Jacob when he fled from his brother unto the Exodus are 483 years (1929 BC to 1446 BC)
69 x 7 (483) becomes 490
Because this added seven years, there are now 483 to Jacob’s wedding (1922 BC), which then becomes 490 again
And with another seven years for his second wife (1915 BC) creates yet another 483, etc.
From 1406 BC to Christ
The 23’s continue to predominate after the Conquest.
Example: the Kingdom of Judah after the division between North and South lasted 345 (23 x 15) years, 931 BC to 586 BC. Moreover, 586 BC was actually a 115-year extension (23 x 5) from 701 BC when God delivered King Hezekiah from the Assyrian army. At that time God also extended the life of Hezekiah “15 years” so that he died 100 years before 586 BC. Notice the multiples of five.
A literal calculation of the Kings of Judah adds exactly 49.5 years and ten days (a jubilee) to the traditional 931 BC for Solomon’s death. But this, too, is accounted for. It’s simply a sub-chronology. 931 BC is then 981 BC, and thus ‘966 BC’ when temple construction began becomes as 1016 BC with 430 years to the Exodus (1446 BC) thereby producing three sets of 430-years for a total of 1290 years, 1876 to 1446 to 1016 to 586 BC, (Ezek. 4; Dan. 12).
The same is true with the Book of Judges, such as Jephthah’s “300 years”, that is, 299 (23 x 13) from 1406 BC, (Judges 11:26). This “300” also joins the Long Chronology of 12600 years to make 12900 years, (Dan. 12).
We have already mentioned the 483 years (69 x 7) of Daniel 9, to Christ.
Chapter Three: A brief overview of the Long and Short Chronology and, How MT/LXX/SP (Bk. of Jubilees) unanimously utilize 23
The most obvious patterns to do with “23” are in the long chronology. The MT, LXX, and SP maintain two chronologies — long and short. The short we know — the age of each patriarch at the birth of their son is counted consecutively. This is the intuitive way of counting years. This is the “short” chronology.
But the Biblical chronology can be viewed generationally. There are 26 patriarchs from Adam to Moses (27 with the Kenan of Luke 3:36,37). The age of each at death is added consecutively, “generational”. This is the “long” chronology.
Example: “Adam lived 930 years and died”. His son, Seth, “lived 912 years and died”. This totals 1842 years. Therefore, the creation of Adam to the death of his son is 1842 years according to the long chronology. As shall be demonstrated in future articles, 1842 is simply 1840 plus the effect of the two-years at the Flood. 1840 is 230 x 8. (The effect of the two years at the Flood is important. It will be explained in another article.)
The long chronology is less subtle about twenty-three, or rather, 230. Everything in the long chronology is ten-times larger thereby producing repetition and connectivity between the short and long.
The SP is blatant. Its Long Creation date is exactly 9200 to its short. (13400/13998 unto 4200 /3998 BC.) 9200 converts to 10,000 years. SP also has 1842 to Enosh, and thus Long-Enosh to Short-Adam is 7360, which converts to 8000 years, and thus to 9800 to death of Short-Noah (SP).
From Adam to the death of Moses and Aaron (MT), therefore, are 12600 years according to the long chronology, that is, 14006 BC to 1406 BC. (This is “10-times” Rev. 12:6). Or, with the 460 of Kenan, Creation is 14466 BC.
Enosh, the son of Shem, is therefore born 12624 (or 13084) BC. (Like the Sumer tablets, Enosh אֱנוֹשׁ represents a second ‘man’. This the meaning of both names, Adam and Enosh, the tenth and eighth patriarchs before the Flood. This parallels the two principal Sumer chronological traditions that have either ten or eight names from their first Man to their Noah.) From Enosh 12624 and 13084 BC to Creation 4114 BC are 230 and x 37 and 39, etc.
Footnote: More importantly, there are 23 x 390and 430of Moses and Ezekiel 4, from Adam and Enosh to 4114 BC, but this is just a brief overview.
The line can be traced through the brother of Moses as well. Aaron was 3.5 years older than his brother. These three years, plus the two-year anomaly at the Flood puts the date of the Flood when Arphaxad was born at 4836/1 BC. This equals 70 jubilees to the Conquest in 1406 BC and converts to 4900 (100 jubilees) to 6 and 1 BC (-5 and 0). (Or add to this the 460 of Kenan and is 230 x 23 to 6 and 1 BC, or 460 x 23 back around to itself in the "BC/AD Mirror", etc.
Birth of Abraham, long chon. 2435 BC, is seven generations before Moses. Abraham is, therefore, 21 x 49 to 1406 BC and 49 x 49 to the 4836 BC Flood and 4600 in the Mirror back to his own birth in the short chon. of 2166 BC. And so forth.) 2435 BC is also 23 x 43 to 1446 BC, which creates 2.5 x 430 years, or 430 to the call of Abraham in Short Chronology!
There are always ground-rules when competing, otherwise who knows who won?
Septuagint (LXX)
It appears that the LXX and SP branched out from the MT (or vice versa ?) and is why they are all compatible. Example: LXX Creation is 1380 years before MT.
1380 is 230 x 60. Moreover, in the LXX Seth is born 230 years after Creation.
For the LXX chronology see THE CASE FOR THE SEPTUAGINT’S CHRONOLOGY IN GENESIS 5 AND 11, by Henry B. Smith Jr (Associates for Biblical Research ), 2018. His excellent work takes into account the relatively new (re)discovery of the Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum.
Henry Smith includes the 60 extra years of Terah, but this does not change the said “1380 years” difference at Creation. (LXX 5554 or 5494 BC to MT 4174 or 4114 BC is still 1380 years apart.)
This 60 years and the 215 difference as to the time spent in Egypt are simply variations within the chronology.
An example that uses the 460 years in parallel to the 460 of Jarod: From the Abram covenant of the pieces just before Ishamael was born (less the 215-variant) are 460 years to the Phinehas covenant (1407 BC) and conquest (1406 BC), Gen. 15. However, the MT has 460 years from Jacob’s death and prophecy about their future inheritance unto when the inheritance was allotted, which was in the 7th year when the “land rested from war”, 1400-1399, BC. This was 46 years from 1446/5 BC, (Joshua 14). (The LXX instead has 23 x 8 to 1407/6 BC from his prophecy over his two sons.) See chart: “Major Threads of Covenant-Related 23’s”. The Book of Jubilees has 460 from when Abraham was called out of Haran (and Ur).
Hebrew poetry is written like a mirror, and in the New Testament, a “Chiasm”. Even prose are often arranged with one side the mirror of the other. The lengths of events during the Flood year are also arranged like a mirror. The entire Bible does this: It begins with Creation, Christ in the middle, and ends with the New Creation as recorded in the last two chapters of the Bible. The chronology and “23” is no different.
Samaritan Pentateuch and Book of Jubilees
SP Creation is 4415 BC with 460 to Jarod. It takes advantage of the 2-year Flood anomaly.
The Book of Jubilees Creation (3856 BC) is 50 jubilees to 1406 BC.
The Book of Jubilees utilizes cycles of 23 extensively, along with 49.
Example: From the call of Abram out of (Ur) and Haran unto the Exodus are 460 years and create a residual effect because the life of Moses is broken into three sets of 40 years, (Jub. 12). This may have been the authors starting point from which he worked forward and backward in time. He, thus, contrasts the 460 of Jarod that marks disobedience with the 460 of Abraham, God’s obedient servant.
The Book of Jubilees from Abraham to the Exodus appears to be an extension of the SP (and LXX) due to the 23-conversion.
Footnote: Deconstructing the Book of Jubilees
Perhaps, Jubilees utilized the 115 years that span the death of Abraham to the wedding of Jacob (69 years) to when Jacob and family entered Egypt (46 years), a total of 115 (MT, LXX, SP).
This particular string of 23 actually began at the death of Noah (2108- 2106 BC, MT or 1891-1889 LXX) as 115 to the death of Abraham and another 115 to the first two years of Famine when Jacob symbolically died, Gen. 42:38; 45:26, (1878-1876 BC, MT or 1663-1661 LXX). Consequently, the 2-year anomaly at the Flood perfectly synchronizes with the peculiar two-year delay at the entering into Egypt, Gen. 11:10; 45:6. The birth of Jacob in the LXX/SP/NT is 345 years before the Exodus, (23 x 15, which is 115 x 3). The 345 (converts to 375) and thereby add 30 years to the 430 in 1876 BC creating residual-460 of Jubilees so that 1876 converts to 1906 BC for when Abraham was called out of Haran (and Ur), Jub. 12. (Birth of Isaac to death of Jacob are 69 x 3, with another 69 x 6 to 1445 BC, MT). Somewhere in all this the author of Jubilees likely extended the timeline utilizing the effects of the 345 and 115 in combination.
For example, 115 converts to 125, and justifies Isaac born when Abraham is both 100 and 111 according to Jubilees! Jubilees add the extra year to make 111 which, in turn, allows both 59 and 69 to Jacob's birth. "69" is 23 x 3.
Moreover, Jacob is '69 years old' when he fled to Haran, that's conspicuously '69 + 69' for a man whose life is wrapped in multiples of seven years. Recall that 69 converts to 70. Then Jacob returns to Canaan 276 years before the Exodus (1446/1445 BC) and later enters Egypt with his household (1685 and 1681 BC, two dates!) around 276 years before the Phinehas Covenant and Conquest of 1407/6 BC. Hence, in 1685 and 1681 BC, Jacob is simultaneously 126 and 130, perhaps intentionally combining a perfect and imperfect number.
From Abraham's birth unto the first time that Jacob's sons entered Egypt is 299 years, and therefore 300 until they all entered Egypt, (299 can convert to 300). This, too, is perhaps a part of the author's thinking.
The Flood in the SP is 276 years (23 x 72) longer than the MT but 504 (7 x 72) shorter than the LXX. (“72 years” is just one day of the “Great Year, 25920 years). Moreover, the spread at the Flood between the MT and LXX and SP is 780 (13 x 60) and 650 (13 x 50), stressing the accursed number. Both the SP and Book of Jubilees deserve more credit than is commonly given for mathematical ingenuity.
The span from Creation to the Flood in the Book of Jubilees and the SP is the same, 1307 years. The key to understanding this span is thankfully clarified in the Book of Jubilees. A day is as a year. There are 1260 + 47 years from Creation to the 47th day of the year when the Floods came, (Jub. 3:17;5:23; Rev. 12:6; Enoch 75:1). Furthermore, the Book of Jubilees puts the fall of Adam seven years after Creation and from then, 700 years to Noah, and 1300 to the Flood to the very day, thus combining the perfect and imperfect number again.
The Flood year (2549/8 BC) in the Book of Jubilees curiously works out to ‘seven times 364 years’ unto 1 BC, 1 AD.
Chapter Four: The Great BC/AD Mirror and, What about the residue of days?
The dates prior to the Flood and after form a mirror, as does the Exodus, but we are after the big picture. As said earlier, the ancients, even the Babylonians, understood the end of their age to be 6 and 1 BC. This was the location of the Great Mirror – -where the old is repeated in reverse order.
A host of examples can be given. Already we have observed another type of mirror, the Long Chronology of 14006 and 14466 BC shadow 1446 BC and 1406 BC of the Exodus and Conquest.
Moses was 120.5 years old when he died. This can add an extra half-year that goes back all the way to Creation. Was the Flood and Creation in the Spring or Autumn? Scholars are divided and should be because the text leaves it intentionally ambiguous.
Example: Creation 4114 BC Spring or 4115 BCAutumn. 4114/5 BC to 1407/6 AD equals 5520 years. 5520 = 23 x 24, which is 2760 + 2760, which can convert to 6000 years. Therefore, LXX Creation of 5494/5 BC to 1406/5 BC is 6900 years, which converts to 7000 years (or 7500). Given the fact that God created in six days and rested on the 7th, and that, “A day is as a thousand years”, the meaning of the 6000 and 7000 years is obvious, (2Peter 3:8).
(This is why there are 60 and 75 generations to Christ in Matthew and Lukes genealogies, respectively. It was a well-known pattern back then. Actually, Matthew begins at Abraham and Luke ends at Adam, two different linearly directions thereby imitating the mirror with 115 {23 x 5} generations between them. “-4000 to +7500” = 11500, “115 generations”, etc.)
Or take the Long Chronology 14472t/1n – 14465t/4n BC (i.e., the 7 or 7.5-yr max spread, symbolic of the seven days of Creation, to be explained later). 23 x 690 yrs later equals 1399t/1400n – 1406t/7n AD, which is the mirror of the 7 & 7.5 yrs of Conquest with its first Sabbatical year of “rest”. “23 x 690” converts to 7 & 7.5 times 2300! (Therefore, from Enosh, 6 x 2300.)
Another example: The Flood, 2458/9 BC to AD 1406/7, equals 23 x 168 — 168 is a Priestly cycle. 23 x 168 (69 x 56) coverts to 4200 years or as 80 jubilees!
Note that Shem was born exactly 1150 years (23 x 50) before the Conquest of 1406 BC, (Dan. 8). Shem was understood by many in biblical days to be none other than Melchizedek. We now have massive interconnecting blocks of time ready to intersect with the still larger timespans of the Sumer tablets.
Example of accounting for the residue of the “23”: From Creation to the Flood
There are 1656 years from Creation to the birth, death, and Flood of Noah in the SP, LXX, and MT respectively. However, in this example, we focus on the MT (of your Bible!).
From Creation to the Flood are 23 x 72 years in the MT
The Genesis chronology has exactly 1656 years from Creation to the Flood.
1656 is 23 x 72 years. (“1656” is also six times “276” of Paul’s shipwreck by that storm, Acts 27:37.)
Therefore:
23 converts to 25 priestly years, thus 1656 = as 1680 years (and 1680 years, in turn, is 336 x 5 years of years)
69 also converts to 70 prophetic years (of 360 days), thus 1656 = 1800 year,
(and 1800 years, in turn, is 360 x 5 years of years)
And 1656 is 23 ‘days’ of Precession because each day equals 72 years, (1656 = 23 x 72 years)
These, in turn, form fundamental building blocks. Thus, the numbers are tamed so that they easily connect with all others — as we shall later demonstrate again and again.
Or take the SP. SP Long to Short Creations is 9200 years which converts to 10000 years (adds 800 years). SP counts the zero at Christ as if a year. 13400 to 4200 BC causes 13400 to expand 800 years to read as 14200 BC, which is 27600 back to its self in the mirror to AD 13400! 27600 (23 x 1200), in turn, expands to 28000 or 30000 by adding 400 or 2400 more years. That means 4200 BC can now read 4600, etc.
The Book of Enoch is the original source-chronology
To the esoteric mind of the ancients, all this is but the inevitable outgrowth, like a seed at Creation that “produces after its own kind”. It became a competition as to who could create the most lively and meaningful chronology. As discussed in Chapter Five, the chronology of the Book of Enoch appears to be the rudimentary source of all other chronologies. The others branched out from it with a view to compress or expand the original.
The Babylonians, Egyptians, Hindus, Aztecs, and others expanded it, whereas the Jews both compressed and expanded it using their Short and Long chronologies wound together like a string of DNA. The MT particularly sought to compress — compression of chronology is more difficult and thus of greater value, at least in their eyes.
The Seder Olam (“traditional Jewish chronology”) especially viewed compression as excellence.
In discussing Biblical chronology the Seder Olam followed three principles:^{}
To assume that the intention of the Biblical author was, wherever possible, to give exact dates
To assign to each of a series of events the shortest possible duration of time, where necessary, in order to secure agreement with the Biblical text
Pharisaic Seder Olam Rabbah (Traditional Jewish Chronology)
The Seder Olam was authored around 160 AD — shortly after the Bar Kochba revolt in 135 AD, which is 2300 years after the birth of Abraham, and 1150 after David was anointed to be king, (2166 BC to 1016 BC to AD 135).
Bar Kochba was a failed Messiah. The author likely wrote Seder Olam in dispersion to a disillusioned audience. Further, surrounded by the perceived Christian threat the true date for the Conquest years (1406-1400 BC) with its obvious implications (1400 years to Messiah) demanded readjustment, (cf., Matt. 1:17). But this had to be changed in good conscience, at least before peers. A ‘righteous’ justification to drop the date of the conquest by 165 years was required, (586 BC dropped to 421 BC).
Wrongly motivated, Seder Olam demonstrates too much compression at the cost of coherence. Daniel 9 with its prophecy of 490 years to the Messiah became a threat. By changing dates, both the 1400 and the 490 was obliterated. Instead, now “490-years” merely heralded the destruction of Herod’s temple as starting at the destruction of Solomon’s temple (423/421 BC to AD 68/70). This compressed the era of Greek rule into a ridiculously small span contrary to true history.
But it had a strange outcome — perhaps intentional? Perhaps inspirational — inspired by the God of all grace.
The Road of Departure is the Road of Return
Seder Olam’s Creation to Exodus spans 3761 BC to 1313/1311 BC. Now it happens that 3761 BC is 138 years short of the actual Creation of 3899 BC. (LXX/SP/NT “215” in Egypt. MT Creation 4114 BC less 215 equals 3899 BC.)
3899 BC to the Seder Olam Creation of 3761 BC is 138 years (23 x 6). And from the Exodus as 1313/1311 BC to AD 68/70 is 1380 years (23 x 60)!
138 yrs from MT Creation to Seder Olam (SO) Creation
Because 138 is 69 x 2, it can therefore add two years to convert to 140. This may account for the two-year anomaly carried forward within SO chronology from its Creation all the way to the fall of the second temple in AD 68/70. 3761 BC thus becomes 3759 BC with the desired effect that there are both 2450 (50 jubilees) and2448 years unto the SO Exodus in 1311 BC. Moreover, from 3899 BC to SO date for Jarod are 598 years, which also can add two years to become 600. (299 converts to 300).
The author of the Seder Olam probably designed the work for calendrical purposes with the Book of Enoch in mind because by placing their Creation as commencing six days inclusive before the New Year (Elul 25th), it connects the lunar year of 354 (or 355) to the 360 days of the 360-calendar to land correctly upon the New Year, and likewise 364 to when the Enoch calendar starts, i.e., ‘on the 4th day of the New Year’. The perfect fit seems more than a coincidence and demonstrates that the Seder Olam did not ignore other calendars, but incorporated them where possible — perhaps including an awareness regarding 138 and 1380 years.
“1380 years to AD 68/70” is compressed from 1500 years
The Seder Olam Exodus as 1313/1311 BC was perhaps compressed from 1500 into 1380 years (-120 years) so that 423/421 BC is actually 543/541 BC, and their Exodus is actually 1431/3 BC? 543/541 BC is about the time of the return from Exile and of Daniel’s prophecy of 490 years. (More likely it was originally exactly 539/537 BC by using 23 x 58 years instead, and the Exodus exactly 1446 BC. See note.)
Moreover, the 1380 years from the Exodus to the fall of Jerusalem (890 + 490 = 1380) is repeated in reverse. Sarah was born upon the 40th jubilee. From the birth of Sarah unto the Exodus are 490 years and thus 1380 to 432/1 BC, when Jerusalem fell the first time! Thus, 490 + 890 + 490 from Sarah produces two 1380’s by overlapping 890 in the middle, and 890 can condense to 888. (See important note on “Mirror Overlap”.) This links Sarah twice allegorically with Jerusalem. (Paul was trained as a Pharisee, Phi 3:5-5. The “430” of Gal. 3:17 favors Seder Olam including Gal. 4:21-31. Recall the symbolic “276” of Paul’s shipwreck as a likely portent of “the end of days”, consummated at the horrific fall of Jerusalem, 276 x 5 = 1380.)
“The land rested from war” in 1400 BC (1267/5 Seder Olam). Is it just a coincidence that 1380 years later construction on Herod’s temple began? Moreover, after another “46 years” (23 +23) Jesus prophesied its destruction, (John 2:13-22; cf. Mark 14:58). Consequently, there are 1380 years both to its construction and destruction (Seder Olam). Also, from Creation to the “46 years” of John 2:20 are 1380 x 3 AND 1380 x 4! (4114 BC MT and 5494 LXX unto AD 27.)
The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”
Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”
They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” But the temple he had spoken of was his body. (John 2:18-21; also see John 8:57)
Also, there are 1400 yrs from 1406 to 6 BC, (1400 is 1380 expanded), thus numerically associating the birth of Herod’s temple with Christ’s. (See conjectural note.)
Note: It's hard to know for sure, but perhaps to a Pharisaic scribe, 890 can reverse to 980? Thus we have '490 + (490 + 490) + 490' to Sarah's birth that in turn is 490 x 4 from Creation.
Note: "Mirror Overlap" is another technique of compression found frequently in the Bible. Example: Abraham's life is composed of three main parts, 75 + 25 +75 years so that a generation of 100 years overlaps in the middle. The same for Noah and Shem's "600 years" at the Flood, 500 + 100 + 500; or the 390/290 from Shem/Flood to Abraham/Isaac, 100 + 290 + 100; or Isaac's wedding and death that overlap "four generations of 40 years" from Abraham to Jacob 120 + 40 + 120; or the 80-yr overlap at Moses that also produces 160 years, 40 + 40 + 40; and numerous others.
The MT "430" versus LXX/SP/NT "215" of the stay in Egypt is just another Mirror Overlap, compressed instead of expanded and recognized as such by competing parties. But that's a subject for another time.
Recall that the distance from the LXX to the MT Creation is also 1380 years.
Conjectural note: The original terminus a quo likely was 539/537 BC exactly. 1380 less the 46 years (when "the land rested" in 1267/1265 BC, Seder Olam, John 2:20), unto the "1335th" year (i.e., 1334 full years, Daniel 12) comes to the terminus ad quem of AD 68/70, and consequently instead expands to precisely 539/537 BC rather than 543/541. (The fall of Babylon, return from Exile, and the prophecy of Daniel 9 are all dated to 539/537 BC.)
The Seder Olam is largely an attempt to place the Covenant of Pieces "430 years" before the Exodus. Therefore, observe that 1290 years before the terminus a quo 543/1 BC is the birth of Isaac, according to Seder Olam. (1290 equals 430 x 3.) Thus the "1290" and "1335" of Daniel 12 are both incorporated within the sacred timeline along with the "490" of Daniel 9, with a bonus of 430 x 4 from Jacob to AD 68/70 of Ezekiel 4. Moreover, Sarah was born 490 x 4 from Creation and thus 490 years before the Exodus and 1380 before 543/1 BC!
Thus, it appears that the jubilee of the exile was simply omitted (compressed) by the Seder Olam (exile of 586 overlaps the return of 537 BC), with the remaining 1500 years compressed to 1380.
The omission of the 49 years is justified because this is exactly how many years the kings of Judah have in excess of the actual span when literally calculated, (i.e., not allowing for overlaps in reigns), (cf. Dan. 9:25). The 49 years can thus be recovered by simply calculating time by adding the reigns of the kings of Judah consecutively (537 to 931 BC) and thereby reach the original 1446 BC for the Exodus via 1Kings 6:1.
Moreover, the difference of 135years between the Conquests in 1406 and 1271 BC might simply be the 116(of 1334) and 19of 605 to 586 BC. Thus, the 19 years that span the three exiles were compressed to one event to collectively become the terminus a quo of Daniel 9?
I speculate that the 23 was akin to uttering "the Name" out loud and thus was left unspoken and only inferred. This would explain why the original use of 1380 & 1334 was forgotten -- it was only verbally transmitted.
It's time for Israel to be engrafted again into their own geological tree, (Rom. 11:11-31). Return the way you came. Take the King's Highway home!
“Let nothing be leftover” John 6:12,18
The 23 and 69 do not convert to 25 and 70 evenly. What about the extra days when 1656 is converted to 1680 or 1800 years?
We said earlier:
23 solar years can convert to 25 priestly years
The small remainder of 23/40th (or 7/12th) of a day in accounted for within the conversion
This means that in 1656 years there are exactly 42 days remaining, (six weeks). (1656 / 72 = 23. That’s 8400 days times 72, with 7/12th remaining — that is, 7/12 x 72, which equals exactly 42 days, (7 x 6).
Events in the Bible are dated from the first day of the month on the lunar and 360 calendars, but from the 4th day of the week (when the sun and moon were created) on the Enoch Calendar. And these two calendars are separated by 3.5 days (not 3) because the lunar runs from evening to evening, but the solar from morning to morning.
Creation to the Flood is 8400 x 72 days with 42 remaining
God separated the waters from the waters on the “2nd day” of Creation.
Now, God told Noah to enter the Ark 40 days after the New Year, (Gen. 7:6-12). Seven days later the Floods began so that the 2nd day of the Creation was undone.
As we shall see, from the 2nd day of Creation when God separated the waters from the waters, and also from the 5th day of Creation when God filled that which he separated — the sky and waters — from these two days until when Noah entered the Ark and also unto the day when the rains fell — are exactly 1656 years and 42 days— exactly.
The Flood dated according to the 364-calendar of Enoch that began Wednesday morning from Creation
Therefore, from the 2nd day of Creation (Monday) when “God separated the waters from the waters” unto the day that Noah and his family entered the ark are exactly 1656 years and 42 daysaccording to the Enoch calendar.
The “2nd day” of Creation plus 42 days equals the 44th day, but which on the Enoch calendar is the 40th day, Monday, because his calendar begins on the morning of the fourth day, Wednesday.
The Flood dated according to the 360-Prophetic Calendar that began Saturday just after sunset from Creation
However, from the perspective of the 360-calendar calendar (and lunar), from the 5th day of Creation (Thursday) when God filled the sky and the sea (in parallel to the separation of the sky and sea on the 2nd day), exactly 1656 years and 42 days land exactly on the day that the Flood began! (The 5th day plus 42 days equals the 47th day when the rains began, “the 17th day of the 2nd month”.)
Footnote: Moreover, from the 40th day of Creation to the 47th of the Flood are 1661.5 x 364 days. And because we do not know what New Year was used at the Flood (was it in spring or autumn?) this also aligns as if to condense the entire period from Creation to the Flood into seven symbolic days.
The Book of Jubilees places signification to 40 days after Creation (plus seven years), reflecting the tradition of the creation/birth of a male and the 40 days of cleansing according to the law.
Think of the convergence of properties that must come perfectly together to achieve such precision!
And so the totality of all Biblical numbers, timeframes, and chronologies synchronize just like this. In future posts, we will take one brick at a time, and there are thousands of examples! We will reveal it block by block — “1656 years” was a large block, but there are larger!
Eventually, we put them all together as a holy temple in the Lord.
Quick addendum: The Flood was in 2458/6 BC (with 290/292 years to Abraham's birth in 2166 BC, plus 760 more to when Israel entered Egypt in 1406 BC. This puts the Creation at 4114/2 BC. But 1656 equals as 1680 on the 336-calendar, thus 2456 BC plus 1680 years equals as 4136 BC.
From 4136 BC to 1406 BC are 2730 years, which is like 2730 days, which is like the '7.5 x 364 days' of the Enoch calendar, which, in turn, the full Creation of Enoch lasted 7.5 days. Recall that Solomon's temple took 7.5 years to build and the temple is a pattern of the Creation, etc.
The importance of “23 years” is also detected in the Metonic cycles and again in Eclipse years.
To improve the Metonic cycle, add two days every 23 cycles (23 x 19 = 437 years
The most accurate correction of the 19-year Metonic cycle is to add two days every 23 cycles. (Of note, after seven days, God commanded Ezekiel to lay on his side 430 days, which is 437 days in total, “a day for each year” Ezek 1-4. The LXX instead has 190 days, which as years are ten Metonic cycles.)
Below is quoted from Wikipedia concerning the Hipparchic cycle. Hipparchus was a Greek astronomer best known for his (re)-discovery of the Precession of the Equinox.
In fact, an even better correction would be to correcting by two days every 437 years, rather than one day every 228 years. The length of 437=23*19 tropical years, about 159610.837 days, is shorter than that of 23*235 synodic months, about 159612.833 days, by almost exactly two days, up to only six minutes.
The 345-year eclipse cycle (23 x 15) equals 363.531 Eclipse years (i.e., the ‘364th’ year of Enoch)
Note: Another name for an Eclipse year is a Draconian year
Hipparchus also studied the motion of the Moon and confirmed the accurate values for two periods of its motion that Chaldean astronomers are widely presumed^{[24]} to have possessed before him, whatever their ultimate origin. The traditional value (from Babylonian System B) for the mean synodic month is 29 days; 31,50,8,20 (sexagesimal) = 29.5305941… days. Expressed as 29 days + 12 hours + 793/1080 hours this value has been used later in the Hebrew calendar. The Chaldeans also knew that 251 synodic months ≈ 269 anomalistic months. Hipparchus used the multiple of this period by a factor of 17, because that interval is also an eclipse period, and is also close to an integer number of years (4267 moons : 4573 anomalistic periods : 4630.53 nodal periods : 4611.98 lunar orbits : 344.996 years : 344.982 solar orbits : 126,007.003 days : 126,351.985 rotations).^{[note 1]}
What was so exceptional and useful about the cycle was that all 345-year-interval eclipse pairs occur slightly over 126,007 days apart within a tight range of only about ±^{1}⁄_{2} hour, guaranteeing (after division by 4267) an estimate of the synodic month correct to one part in order of magnitude 10 million. The 345-year periodicity is why^{[25]} the ancients could conceive of a mean month and quantify it so accurately that it is even today correct to a fraction of a second of time.
Hipparchus could confirm his computations by comparing eclipses from his own time (presumably 27 January 141 bc and 26 November 139 bc according to [Toomer 1980]), with eclipses from Babylonian records 345 years earlier (Almagest IV.2; [A.Jones, 2001]). Already al-Biruni (Qanun VII.2.II) and Copernicus (de revolutionibus IV.4) noted that the period of 4,267 moons is actually about 5 minutes longer than the value for the eclipse period that Ptolemy attributes to Hipparchus. However, the timing methods of the Babylonians had an error of no less than 8 minutes.^{[26]}
Modern scholars agree that Hipparchus rounded the eclipse period to the nearest hour, and used it to confirm the validity of the traditional values, rather than try to derive an improved value from his own observations. From modern ephemerides^{[27]} and taking account of the change in the length of the day (see ΔT) we estimate that the error in the assumed length of the synodic month was less than 0.2 seconds in the 4th century bc and less than 0.1 seconds in Hipparchus’s time. (Wiki)
It is noteworthy that “126007 days” is 8400 and 7/15th days times 15. Perhaps this is the fraction used in the Book of Jubilees. That book was arranged in cycles of 23 as much as it was 49.
The most striking example of the conversion of 345 to 364 Eclipse years is found from Creation to Christ using both the MT and LXX. (4114 and 5494 BC), comes to 27 AD and 32/34 AD, with the Ascension/Pentecost in AD 33 the average of both at 7 x 2 x 345/364, like ONE nailed between two fallen Creations.
Leap months and weeks of the 360 and 364-day years
The 336-year cycles are never adjusted.
This is the simplest and most consistent way to intercalate the 360 and 364 to the true solar year of 365.2425. It is patterned after the six days of Creation and the seventh day when “God rested”. Cycles of 4, 40, 400, and 4000 dominate. This works very well with the Julian and Gregorian calendars. Recall that God created the sun and moon on Wednesday morning, the 4th day of Creation, the start of the 364-day weekly calendar.
The Lunar calendar is similar. It uses the Metonic cycles that also have seven leap-months per cycle; however, it’s cycles are 19 years long. As said earlier, by adding two days every 437 years the Metonic calendar is extremely accurate over long periods of time.
Earlier we noted that the 2668 years from Creation to the Exodus convert to 2900 years, and thus 60 jubilees to 1406 BC. Therefore it is worth noting that according to the rules of the “residual 23”, every 2900 solar years on the lunar calendar equals exactly 61 lunar jubilees, (with no intercalations)
The 23 of Seder Olam Rabbah (“SOR” Jewish Chronology)
The actual Exodus was 1446 BC, not 1313/1311. However, 1476/4 BC is the SOR Exodus if the correct date for the fall of Jerusalem (586/7 BC) is applied and SOR chronology maintained. Therefore, the SOR Creation is really 3924/2 BC when this irrefutable correction is made. Thus there are “850 years”, i.e., “17 x 50”, SOR) from the Conquest by Joshua as 1436/4 BC (corrected SOR) unto the actual fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC (or 587 inclusive).
Both SOR charts will be presented: The traditional and the corrected versions, along with the regular A.M. count from Creation.
Long Chronology SOR
Therefore, the SOR long chronology is 1436 BC for the Conquest, plus 12600 years of the long chronology to Adam equals 14036 BC for Creation (or 14039 BC if through the line of Aaron instead of Moses: they were born three or three-and-a-half years apart). There is also the ‘plus two years’ possible at the Flood (and minus two of SOR). This leaves us with Spring 14041 to Spring 14034 BC.
The original long chronological date for Creation from the actual Conquest in 1406 BC is consequently 14011 to 14004 BC. It happens that 14036 & 14006 BC to Christ at “30 years of age” is 23 x 610 to 6 BC & AD 25, or 23 x 630 if the 460 years of Kenan is included, Luke 3:23,36,37.
23 x 630 is the same as 69 x 210, which converts to 14700 years, that is, 300 jubilees to 6 BC and AD 25. And similarly, from the “short” Exodus dates 1476/1446 BC, there are 1470 years to 6 BC and AD 30. Therefore there are “300” and yet again, “30” jubilees to Christ at “30 years of age”, Luke 3:23. Marvelous symmetry. Also, note that 23 x 630 when converted to 25 x 630 adds exactly 1260 years. Cf., Rev. 11-12.
Note: If for argument sake we stick with just the "23 x 610", this yields 25 x 610, that is, as 15256 BC, which is 10000 years to 5256 BC, the Creation date of Luke with its 75 generations from Adam to the birth of Christ! Compare 15266 BC with the actual birth of Moses in 1526 BC.
Of course, 15256 BC as from the actual Conquest of 1406 BC is 30 years less, that is, 15226 BC. It happens that 15226 BC to the Creation according to the Book of Enoch is 12000 years. 15226 to 3226 BC. (1406 BC plus the 26 generations of 70 years each to Adam of the Book of Enoch equals "3226 BC".)
At any rate, 14006 to 3226 BC are 220 jubilees (230 to Enoch), but which is 230 x 49 if you add the 460 of Kenan to the SOR's "14496 BC"! Also observe 15256/15226 BC as in the mirror, i.e., 15256/15226 AD, and 340 jubilees to 1406/1436 BC, etc.
The 75 generations of Luke to Adam holds the key to what is happening here. 75 generations of 70 years make 5256 BC. 5256 BC to 1406 AD is 6660 years, but which to 14066 AD is 19320 years (69 x 280 = 400 jubilees), thus redeeming 6660. According to Luke, the 76th generation is symbolically God himself, and thus 5326 BC to 13995 AD is also 69 x 280. Altogether then, 5326-5256 BC unto AD 14066-13996 are 69 x 280, which converts to 400 jubilees. The Short and Long chronologies are derivatives of this simple pattern.
Ponder this great mystery:
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world. (Rev. 13:8)
What is the "Book of Life" if not what incorporates "the root and offspring" and all that is between? In this sense, the Book of Life is the geological record of Christ, and all who branch out from Him, including those engrafted in.
Christ was slain ("cut off") before the foundation of the world.
Mathematically this means that Christ lived out only half-a-generation, that is, 35 + 35 years, (Daniel 9:24-27; Isaiah 53:8). This means that symbolically Christ was slain 35 years before the foundation of the earth. According to Luke and Revelation, therefore Christ was slain in 5291 BC and AD 30. (5291 BC is the same as -5290).
His death mirrors the Great Resurrection and New Creation described at the end of the Book of Revelation. Thus, 5291 BC to AD 5290 is (23 x 230) plus (23 x 230), which converts to 11500 of Daniel 8. Christ is the beginning, middle, and end of the cleansing of all Creation. He was cut off from the tree of life but engrafted in again in resurrection power, taking in his train all that are alive in Him.
As said before, The Long Chronology is ten-times larger than the Short. The MT Long Chronology for the Flood/Arphaxad is 4831 BC (or 5291 BC with the extra 460 of Kenan). 4830 converts to 4900 (70 x 70), and as already shown, 5290 x 2 converts to 11500. (Observe that 4831 BC to the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70 are exactly 4900 years, with the dividing of the last 70 years at AD 30 as per Daniel 9 and Enoch 91-92).
If we add the 3 years when calculated through Aaron instead of Moses, along with the "plus two years" at the Flood, then we have 4836 and 5296 BC. 4836 BC is exactly 3430 to the conquest of 1406 BC (or SOR 4866 to 1436), which is 70 jubilees -- an extremely important amount of time. Moreover, the full spectrum for the Flood date is 4836-4829 BC, which exactly 70 jubilees to the seven years of Conquest!
4836 BC is also 70 times 23 to Enoch's Creation in 3226 BC, which in turn is 70 x 2 x 23 to 6 BC. Also note that the actual "Short" MT Flood date is 2458/6 BC, that is, 50 jubilees to 6 BC, and is the same as the Flood date of the Book of Enoch! Both overlap at 2456 BC at the Flood/Arphaxad and are obviously coordinated. 35 years later (half 70) Selah is born to Arphaxad, but which is 11.5 generations of 70 years from Enoch's Creation (23 x 35). Selah (meaning "sent") is a type of Christ, "the One Sent" into the world. And 23 generations from Adam is Levi. And 350 years after the Flood, Noah died.
It's hard to believe that these are mere random overlaps. Enoch's simple generations of 70 years are the original template of both Short and Long Chronologies and their variations in the LXX/SP/NT/SOR and Sumerian Tablets. They all can be traced back to it, including optional Kenan. (When Kenan is included in the genealogy of the Book of Enoch like Luke, the two are exactly 40 jubilees apart, 1960 years: 5226 to 3296 BC. Like all the rest, Luke built his off of the Book of Enoch. This means that Luke knew that 1406 BC was the actual date of the Conquest.
Matthew's divisions of three sets of "14 generations" also suggest that he had 1406 BC in mind. Matthew begins at Abraham and ends at Christ -- 40 generations in all, that is, 2806 BC, (40 x 70). This is half-way to 1406 BC! (1400 years are 20 generations of 70 years, but which is also 14 gen. of 100 years each. "1400" is the lowest common multiple of the three biblical lengths of a generation, 40, 70, and 100. Plus the 40 years in the wilderness make 360 x 4. Therefore, 1406 BC is the only logical outcome of the biblical numeric and the Book of Enoch. It also happens to be actual!
As for "23", in their genealogies, Luke counts in one direction and Matthew the other. Laid out on a line, that's 75 + 40 = 115 generations -- 23 x 5. In generations of 100 years, that's 11500 years.
Someone may say, "But you are switching the length of a generation!" Observe, 75.5 generations of 100 years to when Christ was "slain before the foundation of the world" makes 7556 BC, less 2300 years (Dan. 8) is 5256 BC when Adam was created and fell into a deep sleep to make Eve. ("5256 BC" is the Creation with generations of 70 years).
The same can be shown with 4600 years, or as from all eternity, 5326 to 3026 BC -- 2300 years. And 2300 converts to 2500. "2500" plus the other half of a generation of 40 years is 1260 + 1260 to the "seven-day" Creation. Etc. Each of these will work with the 1406 BC date because 1400 years is the lowest common multiple of 40, 70, and 100. (I..e, 75 gen. of 40-years makes 3006 BC, which is '40 x 40' to 1406 BC.)
SOR Chronological Charts
The below chart is the same as the above except expressed in BC and AD.
Engrafting the Jewish chronology (SOR) back into its family tree
The below chart is adjusted to the correct date for the fall of Jerusalem (586/7 BC rather than 423/421). The chart remains true to the SOR at every point other than the obviously false notion that from the first fall of Jerusalem unto the second fulfills the “490 years” of Dan. 9. Historicists are in complete agreement that the fall of Jerusalem was 587/6 BC and not 423/1.
To keep in harmony with Seder Olam requires an earlier Exodus date. The SOR Exodus date is 1476 BC instead of the actual 1446 BC. Thus SOR is 30 years longer from the Exodus to the fall of Jerusalem, 890 instead of the actual 860 years.
The extra 30 years is expected of SOR chronologists. The modern new norm of 1446 BC for the Exodus is based upon astronomical evidence not known the past 1900 years when the SOR was finetuned and standardized. “890 years” from the Exodus to the fall of Jerusalem is about right for chronologists of their period in the attempt to unravel the actual length of the kings of Judah, with its complex overlaps. Bishop Usher, for example, placed the Exodus at 1491 BC. Still, it is not wrong to begin the SOR from 1446 BC instead of 1476, that is, if one is interested only in the SOR from Creation to the first temple but ignores the rest.
In the below chart, the alternative 2-years less is included. (Creation as 3922 instead of 3924 BC.) Keep in mind that 3922 BC is not consistent with points of the SOR, but it does allow the 2450 years from Creation to the Exodus so commonly expressed in Jewish chronology, as if from 3761 to 1311 BC instead of the exact 3761 to 1313. Therefore, consider 3924 BC as actual and 3922 figurative.
The use of 23 is also apparent in SOR
There are numerous examples of significant (and likely intentional) multiples of 23 within Seder Olam.
The SOR appears to be written in opposition to the SP (and Book of Jubilees). Therefore it is significant that there are 276 years (23 x 12) between the two at Creation, (SP 4200 to SOR corrected 3924 BC).
Furthermore, from MT (with the short 215 yrs in Egypt) to the SOR are 23 x 8, (3899 to 3761 BC).
And from LXX to SOR are 23 x 66, (5279 to 3761).
Luke has 75 generations from Adam to Christ’s birth. Its structure appears tied to the Book of Enoch with its generations of 70 years. Luke has 69 (23 x 3) & 70 generations from Enoch to Christ, (Luke 3:23-38, Enoch 92). 75 x 70 from 6 BC is 5256 BC, which is 23 x 65 to 3761.
Now calculate using the mirror the interactions between ALL of the above, keeping in mind both 3924 & 3922 as well as 3761 & 3759, and the 460 to Jarod.
Significant multiples of 23 within SOR
Creation to Flood, 23 x 72
Creation to Jarod, 23 x 20
Creation to Lamech, 23 x 38
Abraham’s birth to when Moses fled to Midian, 23 x 20
“Coincidentally”, 23 x 80 and 23 x 60 to death of Christ, AD 30
Sarah to Fall of Jerusalem, 23 x 60
Exodus to fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, 23 x 60
Israel and sons enter Egypt to the return from Babylonian captivity, 1150 yrs (23 x 50)
"Coincidentally?" Israel and sons enter Egypt in LXX/SP/NT in 1661 BC, and thus 1290 years to the SOR return from Babylonian captivity in 371 BC. 1150 and 1290 are the two figures in the Bible associated with "the abomination that causes desolation", (Dan. 8:12;12:11).
Also, SOR is 1290 from Isaac to SOR fall of Jerusalem.
Conquest of Promised Land to Zerubbabel’s temple, 23 x 40
Call of Abraham to birth of Moses, 23 x 15
Ishmael to Exodus, 23 x 18. (Residual ultimately produces both 490 and 500 to the Conquest)
Isaac’s birth to death of Joshua 460 years
Levi & Judah, (priestly and kingly lines), from birth and death, 23 x 5 and 23 x 11 to Mt.Sinai. (Plus residual)
Terah to Jacob, 230
Wedding of Jacob and the 7 years that sons were born to him unto the 7 years of Solomon’s temple are 23 x 32. Curiously, Solomon’s temple began on the 32nd day of the religious year and ended on the 23rd of the civil year, which is (23 x 116) plus 23 days apart (360-calendar)
Conquest of Promised Land to completion of Solomon’s palace, 23 x 20
Death of Adam to Job’s sufferings, 23 x 60. And 23 x 25 more to David anointed as king by Samuel. (These three are specifically correlated by the chronicle within Seder Olam itself.)
If with the ‘plus 60’ of Terah, numerous other 23’s occur, most notably, from Creation to when Israel entered Egypt is 2300 years, plus the 250 years to the Conquest equals 2550 (or 2448) years, that is, ‘1260 + 1290’ or ‘364 x 7’ years, with the seven years of Conquest that followed, makes ‘365 x 7’.
Thus, ‘1150 x 2’ to the Entry into Egypt and ‘1150 x 3′ to Zerubabbel’s temple
Wiki summarizes the Dead-Sea Scrolls into three general groups:
Some 40% are copies of texts from the Hebrew Scriptures.
Approximately another 30% are texts from the Second Temple Period which ultimately were not canonized in the Hebrew Bible, like the Book of Enoch, the Book of Jubilees, the Book of Tobit, the Wisdom of Sirach, Psalms 152–155, etc.
The remainder (roughly 30%) are sectarian manuscripts of previously unknown documents that shed light on the rules and beliefs of a particular group (sect) or groups within greater Judaism, like the Community Rule, the War Scroll, the Pesher on Habakkuk, and The Rule of the Blessing.
Clearly, the discovery and timing of when these scrolls were discovered, 1947/1948 —as Israel was being reborn— was a sign that we had entered into the final stages of time. And now 70 years have passed. And in seven more years there will have elapsed 70 jubilees from when Israel entered the Promised Land! The opening of the Dead Sea Scrolls was a sign of the restoration of lost knowledge reserved for the last days.
God validates the importance of Enoch’s Calendar
Update: God gave marvelous signs several days after writing this and the below section to do with the fractal images of the four angels of the book of Enoch that control the flow of time (each stationed at the four cardinal points of the year). A researcher at the Department Of Biblical Studies at Israel’s Haifa University released to the public that they had cracked a “code” after piecing together tiny fragments of the second last of some 900 Dead Sea Scrolls yet to be unveiled. They had been working on it for over a year, and have now moved onto working on the very last one.
The images presented below, at center, mainly depicts the scene from Revelation 5, that is, the opening of the seven scrolls of the lamb. Hence, the fact that the last of some 900 scrolls is about to be deciphered after 70 long years is an important sign of what is occurring in the heavens, and of this revelation.
This was true of the 12th cave and "little scroll" (Rev 10) discovered less than a year ago. The two signs mean the same thing: 'Near completion'. (As in the 12 tribes of Israel.) Friends, the final unsealing and revealing of the Revelation and Coming of Christ is at hand!
In an interview with the CBC, a leading researcher, Jonathan Ben-Dov, stated:
“But also every calendar has to relate in some way to astronomy, whether accurate astronomy or maybe just schematic or approximate astronomy. For them it’s important to distinguish the seasons, which they did then the seasons are nicely symmetrical with the transition day between the seasons celebrated as a festival. So that was the contribution of this little piece that we found, it’s seasonal day, the Cardinal days of the sun actually. This is what made this little scroll important.”
Now it happens that about four days prior to this press release, I wrote about the same thing. Only the Qumran scroll was only a shadow of what is now being revealed. And this calendar/fractal image (for they are one and the same) is merely a shadow and symbol of what is occurring in the heavens. The below image, with its caption, is what I wrote a few days prior to the press release. (The same is true of all the images.) Compare what I said to what was happening in the natural world with this press release. (In the below image, can you see the four large angels at each corner? Or the four “Star of David’s” that lays between them and points to the ends of the earth? How about the four fish images that the star of David’s upholds, in the traditional shape that represents the Church? These are but a whisper of what is there.)
When I wrote this, I was referring to the very same thing as in the press release — the four points of the season as spoken of in the book of Enoch (and the Qumran scroll). It was the main point of their discovery and mine! The exact same thing. Please tell me. If mere chance, what are the odds? Moreover, in the “Alpha Omega” image below that uses the old Hebrew script and Greek letters to form these images, well, as it turns out, the Qumran scroll was encoded too. Guess how? Using the old Hebrew script and Greek letters! In the news article entitled: “Scholars Have Cracked The Code And Deciphered One Of The Last Remaining Dead Sea Scrolls”, the article says:
“And lastly, the researchers are still perplexed by the mysteriously coded nature of this 364-day calendar with the ancient encryption system consisting of both paleo-Hebrew or Greek letters along with arbitrary characters. As Ratzon and Ben-Dov wrote (in the study conducted by the team).”
I could go on more about this great sign, but you get the picture!
Dow Jones Drops 666 points by the eve of 360-cal. New Year — a Shmita Year
Actually, there have been a great number of signs. For example, I refer to the 360-calendar and the final seven years (Shmita) until the 490th “Shmita” from 1406 BC when Israel entered the Promised Land, (Dan 9). I’ve also been speaking a lot about 666 lately, how it has to do with money. This New Year (that marked the final Shmita) on the said 360-calendar began Friday, 6 pm, Feb. 2, 2018. What happened at or around that hour? The Dow Jones dropped 666 points. It was the most since 2016.
Enoch’s Calendar and Bible numeric create these images
The calendar math and the fractal math for the four angels are one and the same.
Related to this is that one of the great discoveries made in the 364-calendar form Dead Sea Scrolls was the extension of the Barley and Wheat festivals (i.e., “Firstfruits and Pentecost”). The sect that created the scroll followed these two biblical festivals with two more, the wine and oil festivals. What does this have to do with 666 and the coming economic famine?
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
Enoch Calendar and the Center of Time
As we shall see, the Enochian calendar also agrees with the recent article I wrote on the Sumerian chronology. That Babylonian (Sumerian) chronology spans back hundreds of thousands of years. It also has an Enoch figure (En-men-dur-ana) “caught up to heaven to learn secrets” and who was “seventh” from their ‘Adam’. Most liberal scholars insist that this is proof that the book of Enoch was borrowing from the “much more older” Sumer tablets. But as usual, they have flipped the truth upside down. This, and all calendars, including the Mayan calendar (the counterfeit of Enoch’s calendar) chime with perfect precision at the center of time — Jesus Christ. And because events in time repeat in cycles like a fractal, the chronology of these calendars (especially Enoch’s) weave into the complex chronology that forms the fractal imagery of the book of Revelation. In other words, you can see Enoch’s patterns with your eyes, such as the image below, with the throne surrounded by the 24 elders (like the hours on a clock) and the 7+7 mighty angels, and the seven churches like a star, and so forth. (The 24 priestly divisions of weeks is also a part of the Enochian calendar as per 1Chronicles 24.)
Examples of Fractals that Result from Bible Timeframes
Before I lay out the blueprint for the calendar of Enoch, here are some visuals that agree with, and result from, the calendar of Enoch. These fractals will be explained later, Lord willing. I mention them because they agree with the book of Enoch, the book of Jubilees (and of course the Bible), and with the calendar of Enoch. They render a visual depiction of the calendar instead of what otherwise would be, for most, a dull read!
If you wish, here are the four angels again, in the scene from the book of Revelation where the seals are opened by the Lamb, along with the four horsemen of death. They are about to be swallowed up in life by Christ the Victor. See if you can spot the same four large angels. These four are easily seen about one minute into the video as the center is slowly enlarged and zeroed in on.
Enoch’s Clock And the Clocks of the Nations
The calendar of Enoch literally swallows up all other calendars, just as Moses’ rod that budded swallowed up his rivals did, first the magician’s rod of Pharoh, then later the twelve rods of Israel. The 360-calendar (see 360calendar.com), the 24 priestly divisions of David referred to at the time of John and Jesus’ birth and the lunar calendar used in Israel today are all aspects of Enoch’s calendar. All other calendars are true in the sense that they can keep track of time, but only have meaning when absorbed (swallowed) by Enoch’s calendar. What I mean is this: all other calendars are a subset of Enoch’s ancient calendar and were allotted to certain nations by God (and in some cases, tolerated for a season). They compliment and are subservient to his, much, I’m sure, to the chagrin of hostile principalities that rule these nations. Some principalities “changed times and seasons”, hoping to expunge the memory of the Only True God. But even here, restricted to the pragmatism of useful time-keeping, the ancients usually set their courses by the sun and moon or stars and were thereby nudged into timekeeping that nevertheless glorifies God, at least indirectly. Such is the Mayan calendars and Islamic calendars. The Mayan calendar especially reveals an attempt to undo the theme of Atonement by the removal of the crucial cycles of seven in relationship to 13 per quarter year, (7×13 days) but retain the rest of the elements of Enoch’s calendar, particularly 13 and 20×18 (360) with its 144,000-year grand cycles.
