Bible Code Prophecy
Are the 945000 days Correct?
(As concerns the World Trade Center Disaster)
(A supposed error when using
the calendar converter)
The following is my response to the letter(s) sent to me.
I checked the calendar site, and the 945,000 days are correct. Above is another calendar site that verifies the same thing. Keep in mind that –586 means 587 BC in astronomical terms. Perhaps the other calendar converter site will be easier to use. Put in "Sept. 11, 2001" in the Gregorian field, (which is our modern calendar), and note the Julian day count ("JD"). (It is 2452163.67948 when I did it---the exact decimals might change with the hours---I am not sure). 2452163.67948 less 945000 days = 1507163.67948. Therefore, insert 1507163.67948 into the Julian day count field and click "get calendar". It will read –586 BC, (587 BC) May 17, which in the Hebrew calendar field reads "year 3174 (587 BC), Sivan 1"---the exact date of Ezekiel’s prophecy.
Therefore, this concurs with what I wrote:
"(The siege of Jerusalem that led to her exile figures largely among the prophets. "945,000 days" is 1290 + 1335 years [Daniel 12:12], and a great deal more as we shall see!)
Ezekiel received his prophecy on Tue. May 17, Sivan 1, 587 BC:
"And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me..." (Ezek. 31:1).
From this date, until Tues. Sept. 11, 2001, are exactly 945,000 days. "
Thank you for the diligent search to make sure I was accurate. It keeps us both out of trouble!
P.s., the exact figure is indeed most amazing. I only wish that others would see it and glorify God, rather than the nonsense I have seen on the Net on the subject! Therefore, pass along this important word.
(In answer to the response letter.)
From the days of the Exodus, the bible (most of the time) calculates the month as starting from spring, hence, Sivan is the third month, which corresponds to about May. Ezekiel is also starting from the Exodus/religious starting point. The modern calendar, upon which the calendar converters are based, begin from the autumn New Year---exactly half-a-year apart. Hence, the 10th month (civil) is the 3rd month (religious).
This can be easily verified in most any commentary on Ezekiel. For instance, the NIV or NASV study bible will explain this. For a clear example, read Exodus 12:1-6.
1 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
Passover occurs at spring time. (We now call it by the pagan name, "Easter"). Pentecost occurs 50 days later, in the 3rd month---that is, the month of Sivan (6th). This is the same reckoning that Ezekiel is using.
Thanks for the question. I can see how that would be confusing.
One last thing. The month of Sivan (the 10th month civil) is normally the 9th month, but every 3 years an extra leap month is added (called "second Adar"). Hence, the year we are inquiring about was a year with a leap month inserted. Sivan remains, however, the 3rd month of the religious calendar.
Again, I invite you to look at commentaries on the biblical calendar systems for confirmation. There is no controversy on this subject that I know of. (Though if you search long enough, I am sure you will find some!)
