A Day equals 1.3 years in prophesy

Updated on July 20, 2010

I have mentioned on several occasions that theologians explain the 70 weeks described in the 9th chapter of Daniel as a day equals a year.

My self; I believe without a shadow of doubt that when analyzing what is actually written in this chapter that a week in prophesy = 9.16 earth years.

A day would = approx 1.3 earth years.

In 538 BC Gabriel said that in 62 weeks that the Messiah will be cut off (Killed). 568 years later Messiah was killed upon the Cross.

For ME all other prophesy "must" conform to these words that is said to have been a message from God delivered by Gabriel to Daniel in 538 BC. All prophesy that is given after this must conform to these clearly written words. This is the foundation that they all rest upon.

The foundation is laid first, then and only then is the house built. And that house must rest upon that foundation. The ninth chapter of Daniel is the foundation that all following prophesy must rest upon.

We should not interpret any prophesy that is given at a much later date in anyway that contradicts Gods message as given to Daniel.

Everything that is written in the New Testament can be understood in such a way as to agree with this message! So why do we not do that?

For ME, this may as well be written in STONE.

What you will find is that these figures run full circle.

Also, what you will find is that ALL of prophesy can be laid out in chronological order . Beginning with the date of Jesus' crucifixion.

Lets review exactly what is lying just under the surface that everyone has been overlooking.

62 weeks = 568 years

A day = approx. 1.309 years

A week = approx 9.16 years

A month = approx 40 years

42 months = approx 1680 years

1260 days = approx 1648 years

A season = 13 weeks = 119 year

A time = 52 prophetic weeks = approx. 480 years

A "time" is a prophetic term = to our term for a YEAR.

This is why when the term "year" is used in prophesy it has to be speaking of an earth year, because the word year is only an earth term.

I find it interesting that Solomon’s Temple stood for A TIME

Finished in 966 and destroyed in 586

A time passes after the last prophet of the Old testament and the crusifixion of Christ.

It sometimes gets complicated to explain but every prophesy as written in the books of Daniel and Revelation becomes clear when these timeline comparisons are applied properly.

The last one that I have discovered leads us to 1944.

One last thought. If a week is 9.16 of our years ? And Israel became a nation in 1948. Seven week (9.16 years) later brings us to the year 2012.

It is my opinion that the prophesys were given for two reasons. As in the four kingdoms described in the Book of Daniel; Those that understood the prophesy were prepaired for those changes before they happened. They knew that it was Gods will.

Some of the propheys fell under the catagory; "Ya better quit doing this ..Or Else."

  BUT ..I believe that the most important thing about them is that when we see that they HAVE come to fullfillment exactly as they were foretold; the rest of scripture is validated as true.

  Why would we NOT accept this simple message (62 weeks in prophesy is the same as 568 of our years)??? 

  Is it not the word of God?  Suitable for a foundation on which to build a belief system ?? 
Where better to begin??

      If you don't mind; lets go slow and and not get ahead of ourselves. discuss one issue at a time please.

      I may be weak minded because when you write these long replies like above, Your message, in my mind, turns into alphabet soup.

      Do you believe that ANY of the prophesy written in Daniel 2, 7 and 8 have not been fulfilled?

      "Some of you standing here will not taste of death till you have seen the son of man coming in the clouds sitting at the right hand of Glory."

      St John DEFINITELY Saw This.

      St Stephen The Martyr DESCRIBED this BEFORE he was stoned to death.

      Saul Heard The Lord on The Road to Damascus and Saw The Great Light and Experienced The Holy Power.


      1). JESUS Sets Up His HQ In Jerusalem - PHYSICALLY, In Person.

      2). ALL Nations will be "Gathered Before Him" - ONLY VERY RECENTLY, thanks to global "Viewing Technologies", this IS NOW POSSIBLE.

      3). The Whole GLOBAL Church Of The Wise Virgins MEETS Him On Earth At The Second Coming "AND THEN THE DOOR IS SHUT".

      4). The Dead IN Christ Rise FIRST, and those Alive AT THAT TIME (Still In The Future), "Meet JESUS In The AIR" - The Millennium BEGINS -- satan goes into The Bottomless Pit for The Millennium.


      Read Ezekiel 38 & 39 below FOR THE FULL DETAILS OF THAT WAR, that WILL NOT HAPPEN for at Least ANOTHER 1042 years into The Future, "WERE" THE LORD TO RETURN IN AD 2012 :

      Been a Full Gospel, Born Again Preacher of The Living Word Of God, "As He Hath Written" Since 3.00 PM, December 8th AD 1985, Big Island of Hawaii. CONFIRMED by Endless Multiple Streams of REAL, Perfectly Supernatural, Signs, Wonders and Miracles.

      i have NO secrets - EVERYTHING The Lord "Seeded" Within my spirit is to be Broadcast to ALL souls in "This Generation", and God hath "Set Up" a global system for this to be accomplished (we are using part of it "write" NOW), and In His Holy Spirit - Amen †

      The fundamental issue YOU are complaining of, namely "interpretation", is nothing less than a MISTAKE, a long running mistake, "we" might add.

      The MISINTERPRETATION rests in Two Sweet Words : "THIS GENERATION".

      The souls in the Pacific & Atlantic islands, Europe, Russia, China, North & South America, India, Australasia, Japan, Africa and to the "uttermost ends of the earth" had NOT Received The Full Gospel Of Christ by the AD dates you have WRONGLY proposed as The Second Coming EVENT Of The Living Christ.

      Furthermore, The Dear Hebrew families were SCATTERED into ALL THESE NATIONS also - Part of God's MASTER PLAN - To Accomplish The "Distribution Of His Holy Power"...

      So, until JUST VERY RECENTLY, there hath been NO GENERATION that was even CAPABLE of "Witnessing" The Closing Chapter Of The Great Commission WITH EVERY SINGLE EVENT in Matthew 24 FULLY Translated and Identified.

      THIS IS THE GREAT MISINTERPRETATION by multiple students of Matthew 24 back down across the "PAST" GENERATIONS.

      No Scripture nor Prophecy STANDS ALONE ! ! ! ! ! ! !

      TODAY, (if you do your homework) The Holy Ghost HIMSELF Is Completing The Great Commission By JESUS Christ Himself, With The Father and The Holy Spirit, IN FULL, NON-STOP POWER : Publishing The Gospel into ALL NATIONS in ALL TONGUES.

      At The Great Day, - "WHEN" THIS IS ALL FULLY ACCOMPLISHED - "THEN Cometh The End".

      This has YET To "Transpire" ! ! ! ! ! ! !

      AND, as stated earlier, (i have NO secrets), i AM Elijah - Very nice to make your "passing" acquaintance.

      Just gotta ask before I take that break that you suggested.

      Are you preaching Gods word? or mans interpretation of the word of God; which has been handed down generation after generation. Growing larger each century?

      When did mans interpretation become the word of God?

      And which man would that be?

      It is written in YOUR bible that Jesus said that his second coming will come in that generation and that there was some standing right there in front of him as he spoke these words, Some of you standing here will not taste of death till you have seen the son of man coming in the clouds sitting at the right hand of Glory.

      According to you, we should not believe these things Jesus said?

      Elijah ask ..

      Just want to ask you THIS ONE QUESTION...

      How MANY times have Future Events been Revealed to YOU either in night dreams, waking visions, written poetry or fiction that came true later; or in either Spoken or Written format, preceded by "Thus Saith The lord" ???

      = = - -- ==

      My answer ... I couldn't begin to count the times.

      First time that I still remember I was about 19 years old (seems like a century ago).

      I could write a book about them, but why? no one would believe it!

      Looking back now; Did I always have them when one would have prevented me from making a great mistake in my life which altered my course? regretfully ...NO.

      In fact, a couple of them caused me to go in a direction that I wish I hadn't gone. Sometimes we go down a path not for our gain, but for someone elses.

      Does this make me special? Absolutely Not! There must be 100s of thousands of people (maybe more) living today having these experiences. They, like myself, wouldn't mention it except when asked, which is most often in a private conversation.

      Where do you think I got the idea to read the book of Daniel with an open mind as to what is actually written, disregarding that which I was taught that it says.

      Believe me when I say that this is two entirely diffrent stories. As different as night and day.

      Our minds have been programed to believe that we already know what we are about to read before we even begin reading it. This is false interpretations which we were taught. long before we learned our ABCs. Blinded by preconceived ideas as to that which we are about to read.

      There are hundreds of examples which I can show you if you care to really read that which is written stripped naked of preconceived ideas born from false interpretations.

      I apologize for my bluntness; but time is getting short.

      RE "Most of the things you wrote are from someone else’s interpretations of what they say is written in scripture."

      No actually, NOT at all.

      All you have read so far is DIRECTLY from WITHIN, since mid AD 1985.

      i don't follow other people's writings, except historians, and then corroborate the dates from multiple source references.

      I just saw these comments this AM. Please excuse the delay in answering.

      Where do I start??? It is difficult to sort out the point which you are attempting to make amongst ALL of these WORDS.

      I’m not going to debate every issue which you brought up. I will attempt to argue them all at once with this comment.

      A phrase comes to mind ... How do you eat an elephant? Answer; "One bite at a time".

      Most of the things you wrote are from someone else’s interpretations of what they say is written in scripture.

      And where in scripture do these interpretations come, that we may examine them?

      We need to pick a starting point and read what is actually written and understand it before we proceed. Think of it as a foundation to build upon.

      The next issue for consideration has to fit upon that foundation. We can not distort the foundation to conform to every interpretations that comes later. When Gabriel interprets a matter, there is no need for further interpretation. As if he doesn’t know how to say exactly what he wants to say! To do so only leads us down a dark alley.

      For the purpose of understanding prophesy I have chosen the words of Gods messenger angel Gabriel a simple truth for a foundation to build my belief system upon. Any and all IDEAS which come into my head later must fit upon this foundation or it doesn’t belong. Otherwise the house I am building will look more like a hay stack having straight lines pointing in ALL direction.

      Except for one verse and the last half of chapter 12 of the book of Daniel, everything written pertains to events which occurred during the time of the first four kingdoms which were given dominion over THAT Hebrew Nation which was scattered to the four winds by 138 AD.

      Understand this FIRST before we attempt to go forward in search for answers.

      Most ALL of prophesy as written in the Old Testament point to the end of Days for that group of people which God and Abrahams covenant covers.

      Christians today are taught that we were grafted into that old covenant which is false.

      We are given a NEW covenant. The wisdom of scripture has been lost under a mountainous haystack of Mans wisdom (Personal Interpretation)

      We can not find our way out from under this haystack by studying other peoples’ interpretations. Mankind has already traveled too far down that road leading nowhere.

      To interpret the word of God to mean something different than what was intended falls under the definition of Blasphemy. The Beast which was given 42 months to blaspheme God has been doing exactly that since its conception. To follow these false interpretations is allowing the blind to lead the blind.

      P.S. I don’t believe that God is going to send the blind to hell for being blind. After all; this is Gods plan. At this time I offer my best wishes and may God bless us all.

      History PROVES this is AD 70. No contest (Again The Divine SEVEN is Revealed).

      There is MUCH, MUCH More to ALL of this than any of us can possibly imagine.

      Nevertheless, In Prophetic Reality, One Week INDEED Equals 7 Days, In JESUS' Holy Name - Amen


      Daniel 9 : 24 could just as easily point to AD 70 from AD 0 (by another understanding) with a week here being 10 years.

      PART TWO : Daniel 9 : 25

      In the 450th Year BEFORE the Birth Of our Lord THIS HAPPENED :

      "Jerusalem flourished until the Babylonians destroyed it. Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem in 450 BC and rebuilt the wall and the gates of the entire, expanded city."


      69 weeks x 7 = 483 years.

      Add 483 years to 450 BC and we Arrive at AD 33.5 (In the Midst of the year 450 BC being 449.5 BC) - HALLELUJAH...

      Amen again.

      Daniel 9 : 24 The Glorious 70 Weeks.

      By AD 90, only The Apostle John was left Preaching from the ORIGINAL Apostles. By AD 91 he was REMOVED from the public to Patmos.

      The New Testament (Except for The Book of Revelation OFFICIALLY In Writing) was COMPLETE by AD 90. The Church was EXPLODING throughout the "known world hinterland from Jerusalem", continuing into NOW - Amen

      The Spirit of The Book Of Revelation (JESUS' Words) was also "broadcast" through Paradise to His Elect in any event.

      Saint John spent 7 years CONFIRMING All The Fine details in Patmos, until his release back to Ephesus by AD 98.

      However, The Writing WAS Sent to the Seven Churches BEFORE his Release from Patmos (but this is getting off topic)..

      Seventy Weeks = 490 years.

      The Start Date IS 400 BC.

      The theory that the seventy weeks started from 538 BC is naturally understandable.

      However, at 7 years as One Week takes us to 48 BC.

      Something is VERY wrong.

      So, this hub proposes One Week as 9.1613 years OR 109.9356 months, making 62 weeks equal to 568 years to arrive at AD 30.

      The Lord was Crucified in AD 33.5 not AD 30. His Earthly Ministry began in AD 30, and yes, you can account for this by the 3/4 BC concept of misdating the AD start point by a few years, utilising Herod's demise date or planetary events in the heavens. Again, this is NOT The Point - TOO MANY DOUBTS AND ARGUMENTS.

      This year is AD 2012, and this is NOT going to change; (forget the atheist's BCE / CE end time deceits); PLUS we are ALL looking Backwards from NOW, in this hub discussion.

      We can ONLY Study in NOW, therefore, FOR THIS REVELATION STUDY, JESUS was Born AD 0 - being 1 year old in AD 1 - END OF STORY - Easy in Fact - Amen

      Reverting to this hub calculation thesis, even with the Hebrew month of 30 days, or any other method, we end up with some very imprecise dates and figures.

      What you have righteously tried to do is to account for a seeming discrepancy in Prophecy from 538 BC to the key dates in the First Century AD.

      The REAL BC Start Date is CONFIRMED in Daniel 9 : 25.

      The REAL Messiah Cut Off Date is CONFIRMED in Daniel 9 : 26

      Daniel 9 : 26 gives NO date for Titus, just The Fact he WILL come and he WILL destroy the City and the Sanctuary.

      History PROVES this is AD 70. No contest (Again The Divine SEVEN is Revealed).

      Daniel 9 : 24 could just as easily point to AD 70 from AD 0 (by another understanding) with a week here being 10 years.

      The whole POINT is God is not Limited.

      His Domain is OUTSIDE of Time and INSIDE of NOW - Amen

      NO DOUBT an even Larger Divine Calendar is built into Daniel, that we most likely have little understanding of right now, becuase it has NOT Happened YET, or has occurred by "another understanding".

      For Example : 70 weeks = 11,760 HOURS.

      Turn an hour into a year and the Future Is Long.

      Divide 11,760 by 7 = 1,680 (years). Add this to 538 BC and we arrive at AD 1142.

      The Order of St John and The Crusaders built a string of Fortresses and Castles from this start date in The Holy Land.

      Take 11,760, divide by 30 (Hebrew days in a month) = 392 (years). Add this to 538 BC and we arrive at the BEGINNING of The Roman Empire (precisely) 146 BC (ending in 313 BC) lasting 459 years.

      CONCLUSION : God is Divine and CANNOT be quantified by man-made calculuations.

      HOWEVER, Daniel's Chapter 9 Prophecies PROVE His Supernatural Existence, AND Point to JESUS, King of kings and Lord of lords, and THIS IS THE ENTIRE AND REAL POINT - Glory & Alleluia !!!!!!!

      Daniel Chapter 12 Points to a VERY LONG EPOCH, even The Era of The Second Coming (this i personally KNOW for Certain) - NOT THE DAY NOR THE HOUR however - Might make a hub of this, The Lord Knoweth - Selah...

      Let's just LOVE each other and Prepare TODAY and ONWARDS, for The Father's Work in THIS GENERATION - AD 2012 - into His Future,

      AMEN & AMEN.

      † Daniel 9 : 24 - 27 †

      24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

      25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

      26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

      27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

      † Daniel 12 : 8 - 13 †

      8 "And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?

      9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

      10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

      11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

      12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

      13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days."

      Elijah7 5 years ago from Israel - England - Hong Kong - Hawaii - Paradise

      This entire premise is founded on the consideration of a known START DATE...

      We DO have ONE VERY RELIABLE START DATE being AD 33.5.

      The Creator Of The Universe Works On Numbers, and His Repetitive Cycle Number is INDEED Seven.

      7 days in the week. 7 colours in the Rainbow and a MULTITUDE OF PROPHETIC REFERENCES and Parable References to SEVEN.

      A Time and Times and Half a Time X Two = SEVEN.

      A Time and Times and Half a Time = 3.5 years being JESUS Ministry Time from His Baptism to The Cross.

      When "A Time" (by One understanding) equals 7, half a time - 3.5.

      When "A Time" (by Another understanding) equals 10, and Time and Times equals 30.

      God's Thoughts are NOT our thoughts, His Ways NOT our ways.

      Either "Way", (by the above observation) JESUS Is Pre-Ordained, hence, EVERYTHING POINTS TO CHRIST - Amen

      30 Years Old At BAPTISM and 33.5 Years old At CRUCIFIXION.

      Two Times His Earthly Lifespan Reaches AD 70, As Prophesied By The Lord.

      These Matters ARE Written in The Stones Of The Temple In The Valley.

      SO, Start Date : AD 33.5 (forget about the so called missing 4 years) This is NOT How God Calculates The Revelations to be GOOD FOR ALL OF TIME.

      AD 0 Is The Bethlehem New Testament Start Date - Amen.

      It also DOES NOT matter, either way, BECAUSE this year IS AD 2012. Anything else invites pointless argument. God Is The Lord Of NOW - Amen.

      So brother Jerami, is your above hypothesis ACTUALLY CORRECT ???

      Based On The Divine Seven Revelation, take a Fresh Look at 62 weeks being 434 YEARS.

      In the 34th Year Of JESUS' Life He was CRUELLY CUT OFF from His Earthly Ministry.

      Following this BACKWARDS, we have a Clear Cut Date of 400 BC.

      Father Abraham was Born in 1948 AFTER ADAM.

      Four Days Later (Four Millennium) Israel was OFFICIALLY RESTORED - Alleluia.

      Four Days AFTER ADAM, The Lord JESUS Christ Almighty was "Born Again".

      Despite contrary voices in the "religious" world, an overwhelming consensus AGREES That "The Word" went SILENT To The Hebrews in 400 BC, with the Last Prophecy of Malachi. (sure you can argue this if you choose - this is NOT The Point).

      Following this THEN : (Daniel 9 : 27) In the CENTRE of One Week - SEVEN YEARS) The Lord was Crucified and Resurrected, PROVING To The First Jews that HE IS THE MESSIAH. This was EXACTLY As Prophesied after 3.5 years of His Earthly Ministry - Glory †

      No MORE NEED, for The FIRST Christians (JEWS) to continue with animal sacrifices, As The Lamb Of God hath BEEN provided Instead.

      The Pentecost EXPLOSION (First 3.5 years of The Book of Acts) takes us to AD 37. Hereby The Covenant Week of Daniel 27 is Confirmed with MANY - Amen

      END OF PART ONE - Maranatha †

      I have wondered the same thing.

      Time is based upon the speed of light, and that speed of light is constant only when traveling through a vacuum unhindered by gravitational forces. Sooo, in an expanding universe, wouldn't time appear to be speeding up, except our perception of this would remain the same.

      We would be unaware of time speeding up or slowing down, I think.

      Any way you are correct, that it is something worthy of pondering.

      These time lines still baffle me. Your article has stimulated some more questions in that, perhaps our days and years are shorter now then they were in the days.

      Whilst we may have evolved and advanced at rapid rates, our environmental seasons may have had to adjust to accommodate such rapid advances.

      I read somewhere that Abraham was said to 400 when he married after his wife died and was over 900 years old when he died. It would be unbelievable if we didn't take all the other accounts of the bible into consideration.

      Your article kinda illustrates my pondering.

      Thanks for your interest, Jerami. I touch on some of these items in some of my religious hubs, but a great deal of the material is going into a book, "The Bible's Hidden Wisdom, God's Reason for Noah's Flood."

      One hub in particular:

      And I attempt to cover some of the material on two websites:



      Sometimes, I feel as though I spread myself pretty thin, but there is so much of the universe that is interesting.

      I like your realization that interpretation can be a barrier. I have to keep reminding myself of this.

      Very interesting. I had never paid attention ro the 120 years given unto man yet the generatons of Adam depict a different story.

      I am curious about these other facts mentioned in your comment above. Are there any particular hubs you have written explaining these conclusions?

      I've been distracted due to circumstances in my lie that I won't get into here that have precluded me from reading as many other peoples hubs as I would like. I will go check out more of yours.

      Are there any that you would most recomend?

      I began an intensive investigation of the book of Daniel. beginning with the concept that in the year 538 BC Gabriel said that in 62 weeks, the Messiah will be cut off!

      I just can not understand why people think that we should interpret this in any way other that the simple statement that it is?

      While following this train of thought I came to many many verses that first apeared to discredit this theory that 62 weeks equals approx 564 of our years; but then I would recognize that it was my interpretation of these other verses that disallowed this concept to be true.

      I discovered hundreds of false interpretations that I had been holding onto simply because I had been taught that this interpretation was what these verses said when in reality, ..IT WASN"T saying that at all.

      Sorry I gotta go. Will finish this thought later.

      And look forward to reading anything you have to add.

      Jerami, an interesting interpretation. Some powerful insights. There are a number of places where the Bible introduces clues with numbers.

      I've been studying Genesis and have found a great amount of previously hidden wisdom. Things like:

      * A timeline compatible with those of science.

      * An understanding of why God would offer retribution of 7x any hurt lodged against the liar and murderer, Cain.

      * The mechanics of creation itself.

      * The Kabbalists' "Tree of Life" embedded in two chapters of Genesis.

      * The meaning of the 120 years allocated to man in Genesis 6:3.

      * The identity of the "daughters of men" (Genesis 6).

      * The identity of the "sons of God" (Genesis 6).

      * And the real culprit behind Noah's Flood.

      I think I've even cracked the meaning of "sins of the fathers" in Numbers 14:18 and other passages. It's interesting to note that some newer versions of the Bible leave out important details on this passage -- important clues to its true meaning. It seems that this passage is tied to what Jesus said about living by the sword and dying by the sword.

      And hundreds of pages of the Bible to go before I rest. I only hope that my views do not become calcified and that I remain at least moderately humble, though perfectly humble is preferred.

      @ Twenty One Days. From the best of my knowledge the Hebrew count of years run parralell to the Gregorian calendar ??? It is my understand that 539 BC is calculated as such ??

      I wish that I was good enough of an author to put down on paper everything that I have layed out in my head.

      All of the details is like a spider web in my mind; with everything intersecting where it should. These numbers just have to be true.

      If for no other reason; God said so.

      62 weeks has to be 568 years ????

      @ Loves To Read ... Soo happy to see you again. I truley do believe this to be true. But lets not forget that all that this would indicate is the end of the 42 months that the beast was given. Then whaT?

      And then there are multitudes of subsurface implications to be considered?

      AND May you have a blessed day as well.

      intriguing, Jerami.

      what would those numbers look like plugged into the Hebrew Calendar versus Gregorian...
