Still amazed when I remember that in Daniel 9 the arrival of Messiah was prophesied to the day. 69 weeks of years (x 7) = 483 x 360 = 173,880 days. Triumphal entry March 29th, 33AD.
I think about Israel’s rebirth on May 14th, 1948 as predicted to the day from Ezekiel 4. 907,200 days.
God is in charge and is Lord of precision, symmetry and beauty.
I kept wondering if the difference in these two dates had some meaning, perhaps the length of the church age and the 3 dates were kind of a HOLY Triune framework:
907,200 – 173,880 = 733,320
That thesis hasn’t proved fruitful, but this is what started me looking and led me to something else.
The overwhelming number of converging numbers found by many, chief among them Daniel Matson, at WatchfortheDay.org
As Chuck Missler has taught me, taking God’s word very literally is critical. Is God’s heart for the church age and the time of the Gentiles to last two full solar calendar millennia?
As God’s end of the age plan has increasingly been revealed over the last few years, the following verses have become more dear and precious.
John 4:39-43 NASB 39 From that city many of the Samaritans believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all the things that I have done.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to Jesus, they were asking Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. 41 Many more believed because of His word; 42 and they were saying to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this One is indeed the Savior of the world.”43 After the two days He went forth from there into Galilee.Hosea 6:1-2 NASB“Come, let us return to the Lord.For He has torn us, but He will heal us;He has wounded us, but He will bandage us.2 “He will revive us after two days;He will raise us up on the third day,That we may live before Him.3 “So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord.His going forth is as certain as the dawn;And He will come to us like the rain,Like the spring rain watering the earth.”2 Peter 3:8-9 NASB 8 But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
Given the obvious lateness of the hour, the two millennia that have passed and these verses, it is clear God’s intention for the church age is two millennia.
Makes me wonder about the length of the church age, the precision, symmetry and beauty. Of course, no one knows the day or the hour, for now we see through a glass dimly (1 Cor 13:12), one day we will see clearly and maybe we’ll wonder how we missed it.
What if the heart of God was for the door to be opened from 33ad to 2033ad?
From Pentecost May 24th, 33ad (conception of the church) to Pentecost June 5th, 2033.
The great tribulation (Daniel 12)
2,550 days (1260, 1290, 1335)
Back to my original question/hypothesis:
733,320 – 733,049 = 271. 9 months. A gestation period. Makes me wonder about a bookend gestation period to Christ’s.
These numbers don’t reconcile, but fascinatingly close to me.
Back on the road forward, the Word tells us the days will be cut short. Will 2018 was the time of His return? Are we presently in some kind of 9 month bookend gestation period following September 23rd? I don’t know, but it is very very late and I’m off in the weeds.
Matthew 24:22 (NASB) Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
What if “23” was the magic number? As in 9/23, Leviticus 23 and interesting that the conception of the church age was the day after the 23rd on 5/24/33ad. One age ended on the 23rd.
Since the days are shortened, how long?
Interesting the sacrificial system continued another 37 years until 70 years. Is the church age cut short 23 years?
23 years x 360 days = 8,280 days.
733,049 (2 millennia 2033 + tribulation = 2041) – 8,280 (23 years) = 724,769.
Pentecost May 24th, 33ad conception to September 23rd, 2017 = 724,765.
These numbers are fascinatingly close. The 9/23 sign was 23 Biblical years short of the 2nd millennial anniversary of the conception of the church.
As an aside: September 11th, 2001 to Valentine’s day February 14th, 2018 = 6,000 days. (Click to Source)
