A Day equals 1.3 years in prophesy
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??
