The angel/man swinging a sword in front of two
crosses (trees) is found in the Genesis account of the fall
of man when the man and women ate from the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil. An angel was sent to guard the way back to the tree of life with a
flashing flaming sword. The bible code itself produces this flashing sword effect. Notice that
the hand that holds the sword also appears to be nailed to the cross! A cross
is simply a barren tree and is a symbol of death. In this case
it is symbolic of the death of Adam and Eve ('You must not eat from that tree
or you shall surely die!' Genesis 3:2), and it is symbolic of the
death of the Lord Jesus.

relationship to the other codes.)
precise location of this picture code:
bible code itself spans seven rows of 120-letters within the
narrative of the fall of man as recorded in Genesis. To be exact, from Genesis
3:3 at the word, "You shall not touch it", unto verse 14 at
the heart of the Cherub/Angel, and down to verse 18 where his two feet are
located, which is at the words, "You shall eat the herb of the
field." The image itself portrays the scene recorded immediately
after these verses:
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God
said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and
now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life,
and eat, and live for ever:
Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD
God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence
he was taken.
3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the
east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every
way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
(Note the phrase, "...lest he put forth
his hand, and take also of the tree of life." The image can be viewed
without the sword and thereby becomes that of a man putting forth his hand to
the tree of life to eat from it!
also see Gen. 3:6 concerning "the tree of knowledge of good and
evil". The very text where it reads, "good for food" is
located immediately above the hand in this image!
"And when the woman saw that the tree
was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and
that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit
thereof, and did eat; and she gave also unto her husband with her, and
he did eat."
(Image at right is part of another
bible-code pictogram. It is truly massive and dwarfs the one discussed
here. They compliment one another, and numerically mirror one another. Though
not seen here, this flaming cherub also guards the the tree of life and the
throne of God in the Eden that is to come as described in the last two
chapters of the bible.)
What the man with
flaming sword means:
The two crosses represent two trees and two people,
(Adam and Eve).
cross is a tree, and the diagonal tree in the background simply says,
"Woe! Woe! It signifies the "tree of the knowledge of good and
evil". Man was cursed for eating from this tree. (Remember, the image at right
is encoded in this very same narrative about the fall of man.) The upright
cross in the forefront is the "tree of life". The bible says that an
angel was posted to bar entrance back to this tree.
that the images overlap in such a way so as to suggest that the cross of the
tree of life is bearing the accursed cross of the tree of knowledge! To
repeat, the two crosses together read: "Surely they heard from
the Lord! (I Will Become)" -- "Woe! Woe!" (The context
points to Adam and Eve and the serpent "hearing" the
pronouncements of curses upon them. The image itself is centered at the very
commencement of those curses where the heart of the Cherub (angel) is, and the
pronouncements terminate at the feet.)
All this implies
that the Lord would become a man who would become a "woe" (a curse)
by dieing on the tree of the cross. The author of life would become accursed
for man. The serpent would strike his heel, but the Lord would crush the
serpents head and thereby defeat death and the curse. (Note:
"I AM", can also be translated as. "I Will Become...")
is unclear what direction the man/angel faces. Determining this determines the
interpretation of the image. Likely the angel is facing toward the crosses since that
would put the sword into the right
hand of the angel. (The 'right' hand is normative in the bible.) If that is
so, then the two crosses appear to
represent both the man and women being driven out of the garden since the
smaller cross is coming out of the man's side and also out from the larger cross. (The women was
created out from the side of the man, Genesis 2:21-25,
which is the passage located immediately before where this is encoded.
Also, both Adam and the Tree of Life are types of Christ. Thus, a women is branching
out from Adam's side. Even the concept of "branching out" is a
distinctive messianic expression common within bible prophecy, (Isaiah 11:1;
Jer. 33:15; Zechariah 6:12). Jesus said:
"I am the true
vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch
in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh it away: and every branch
that beareth fruit, he cleanseth it (or, "prunes
it"), that it may bear more fruit," (John 15:1-2).
Another reason to suppose that the two crosses
represent Adam and Eve is that the cross-beam
reads, "They will hear." (It is part of the actual
text that reads, "They (Adam and Eve) heard" [...God walking in the
garden].) Moreover, the four ends of the large cross read, "He is the
Lord, but where is he and she? And will He be desired?
(Or, "...but woe is he and she...") This
identifies for us the four items in the picture code; i.e., the Lord (the
One flashing the sword), Adam (symbolized by as large cross),Eve
(symbolized by the smaller diagonal cross), and the sword of "woe".
Normally, the phrase
"Where is he" ()
would be one word in Hebrew, but here the Hebrew highlights both
"he and she" and also allows for the double
meaning of "Where" and "Woe!"
("Woe!" is inferred by the seven woes of the rest of the
code.) Also, the words of the surface text going through almost at the
center of the image reads, "God said, Where are you
(Adam)?" (Genesis 3:9).
The phrase, "But
will He be desired?" may also read, "But does He desire her?"
(See Ps. 132:13). The meaning of both readings is clear since the top portion
of the cross is where the actual text reads, "She saw that the fruit was
good to be desired." (Same Hebrew spelling, Genesis 3:6). And
at bottom of cross the actual text reads, "You will desire
your husband..." (A different Hebrew word for desire, Genesis 3:16).
Thus, the Tree of Life is symbolic of the Lord and the code asks the reader if
one day the Lord will be desired as once Eve desired the Tree of Knowledge.
And the code also therefore asks whether Adam will desire Eve as Eve by nature
desired Adam--- and thus in type whether Christ the Lord will desire His
coming bride (i.e., "But does He desire her?"), and likewise whether
she will desire him as is natural for a wife to do, (i.e., "But will He
be desired by her?"). The affirmative answer is implied.
addition, the four ends of the diagonal cross reads, "The Lord is
Alpha! Alpha is the Lord!" And, "Where is Alpha?" This
links it to the other cross
bible code 1290 letters before this one. (See above right blue
image. In both these codes 1290 letters apart, the One crucified is
called "I AM Alpha.")
four corners of the Lord [that is, His two hands and two feet], if we
allow the letter yod to represent a hand since that is
indeed the meaning of that single letter, (and the two yods do
indeed represent each hand!), then the code would ask (2x),
"Where is the hand of Alpha located?" The answer is
that His hand is nailed to the cross as it wields the sword. Since it
repeats this phrase twice it thus implies that both hands will thus be
nailed. This, too, is very much in accord with the other cross-code
1290 letters earlier.
second sword also comes out of His mouth toward His lower hand, (Revelation
1:16; 19:15). This sword also reads, "Woe!" (This is not
"And out of his mouth
proceedeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the
nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth
the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the
Almighty," (Revelation 19:15).
Thus, the sword with which He smites the earth first
Laws: A Sign?
Another reason to
suppose that the two crosses represent Adam and Eve is the following:
any forethought whatsoever, the image and
document of the male/female crosses and the seven woes were put on internet the same
leaders here in Canada were passing the same-sex law that legalizes homosexual
'marriage.' Recall that this bible code, the dragon code, and the code about Christ on the cross are all centered around the
Genesis passage that
records the first marriage in the bible--- a marriage between a man and a women--- Adam
and Eve. Adam and Eve are a type of Christ and His bride for whom Jesus died. This is why
Satan (the dragon) seeks to destroy marriage as ordained by God.

soon follow suite! Woe to all those that practice fornication of any type,
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Also see

June 30, 2005, Spain also passes same-sex marriage!
"The Netherlands and Belgium
are the only other two countries that recognize gay marriage nationwide.
Canada’s House of Commons passed legislation Tuesday that would
legalize gay marriage by the end of July as long as the Senate also passes
the bill, which it is expected to do. “We were not
the first, but I am sure we will not be the last. After us will come many
other countries, driven, ladies and gentlemen, by two unstoppable forces:
freedom and equality,” Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero told
the chamber before the vote." http://news.scotsman.com

an American Supreme Court judge surprisingly announced she was stepping
down. She likely will be replaced with a conservative judge that should

Is it a coincidence that the very letter where
five of the seven 'woes' end as they are spelt represents the year 775 BC,
which is 1290 to when Isaac was born, who was born just after Sodom and Gomorrah
were destroyed by the two angels? (Genesis 18-21.) (Also see 490 x 6 in the mirror.)
The numbers in the images (left)
letter count in the book of
Genesis. The letter 'aleph' that forms the 'head' is therefore the 3409th
letter in Genesis. Therefore, this letter 'aleph' (that forms the head) represents the dates 895 BC
BC. (4304 BC less 3409 letters = 895 BC, or, 3899 BC less 3409 letters = 490
BC.) (The min. and max. dates are always 405 letters apart as derived from the creation
dates of 4304 and 3899 BC. The max. 4304 BC is the main date line and min.
3899 BC is secondary.)
The seven dates
along the pole are as follows (from top to bottom) 1255/850, 1135/730, 1015/610,
895/490, 775/370, 655/250, 535/130
BC. (Compare this to the other cross with Christ on it 1290 letters earlier,
or, 430 x 3 letter-years.) The underlined dates are especially important in
that they represent part of the main stream of numbers that follow the 430 (or
half that, 215) cycles that include the entry into Canaan by Abraham in 2091
BC, by Jacob and sons into Egypt in 1876 BC, the exodus from Egypt in 1446
BC and the fall of Jerusalem and exile back to Babylon and Egypt in 586
BC, and Paul's ship-wrecked captivity to Rome in AD 60 (that essentially
ends the book of Acts.) We can also add to this 1661 BC of the LXX for
the entry into Egypt by Jacob and sons. All these dates fall within cycles of 215 (or
x 2 = 430) years apart, and 430 x 3 is 1290 (of Daniel 12 and Ezek. 4). These
are literal dates, but there are numerous symbolic dates that fall
within these cycles as well, both in AD and BC and in the mirror.
(The symbolic dates are amazing in that they interlock with literal dates so
that there are, say, 430 years between two events ending in a 430
which days represent symbolic years that in turn coincide with the cycles of
the 430's! This is especially evident with the dates surrounding the exodus,
and those in the book of Ezekiel.)
All of the images are located along
this 215 letter/year path, with the only exception being the moth code; yet
even the moth code at its
center (of 1260 x 1260 letters) equals 2855 BC, and thus also falls along the said path.
(2855 BC plus 4300 = AD 1446, the mirror of the exodus in 1446 BC). Thus, it
is not merely that the images occur in cycles of 430-letters apart, but also that they
are located along the very same 430-year cycles recorded for us in bible prophecy
and in biblical history! Hence, the images are located in precise locations so
as to interact with all other picture codes, using a numeric that likewise
encodes information agreeing with the code.
In order to separate whole days from part
days, numbers with a '+' sign are days that
have just ended with the next day just begun. Hence, one
minute before New Year's day is "Day 0," but one minute
after is "Day 0+", which is the same as "Day 1."
The Exodus occurred in 1446 BC after having spent
430-years in Egypt. They arrived at Mount Sinai on day 60 ending (or day 61)
which symbolizes AD 60. 430 days later Israel attempted to enter the promised
land after 40 days of spying out the land, but they failed to. That was the
490th day from the inaugural year of 1446 BC, which then symbolized AD 490. (AD
60 + 430 days/years = AD 490). Thus after 430 years in Egypt, they arrive at
Mount Sinai, and after 430 days more, they attempt entry to the promised land.
Thus 430 years intersects with 430 days (see Ezek. 4) "a day for each
year." But more than that, symbolic AD 60 is 3˝ x 430 years from literal
1446 BC, and thus 490 is 4˝ x 430 years. Since Abraham entered the promised
land from Babylon 645 years before the exodus in 2091 BC, thus from literal 2091
BC to symbolic AD 490 are 6 x 430, which is also 1290 x 2 years. (Moreover, 490
is the number in Daniel 9.)
And there is so much more!
For example, 430 x 2 years after the
exodus was the the fall of Jerusalem when Judah went back into exile to Egypt
and Babylon. (This means that from the time they entered Egypt in 1876 BC
until the time they entered again into Egypt in 586 BC are 430 x 3 years, or
1290 (of Daniel 12). Ezekiel's book surrounds this event of the fall of
Jerusalem. He began his symbolic siege of Jerusalem 1290 x 2 years before the
literal one fell. (Ezek. 4). He was told to symbolically siege Jerusalem 430
days (390 + 40, compare to the 450th and 490th day of the above chart). Thus,
he besieged Jerusalem one-sixth of the 1290 x 2 days (since 1290 x 2 = 430 x
6). The literal siege of Jerusalem by the Babylonians (that Ezekiel earlier
had acted out) began 800 days before the New Year of 586 BC (430 x 2 years
after the inaugural year at the exodus in 1446 BC). (All day counts are
according to the 360-year calendar of
the prophets.) Ezekiel also dates the temple chapters in Ezekiel 40:1 by this
New Year of 586 BC. In a sense, the New Year of 586 BC was therefore also
anther inaugural New Year that began a new count of reckoning the years (just
as the exodus has been.) Thus, 800 days before the New Year of 586 BC creates
the symbolic year of 801 BC. (It is not 800 BC, since there is no such thing
as the year zero. Thus between 1 BC and AD 1 are just one year and not two
years.) thus, the siege of Jerusalem by the Babylonians began in the symbolic
day/year of 801 BC in the literal year of Dec. of 589 BC. It
happens that 801 BC also intersects with the 430-year cycles spoken of
earlier! For instance, 801 BC less the symbolic 430 x 2
day/years = AD 60 (the symbolic day/year at the time of the Exodus a literal
430 x 2 years earlier! Or, to AD 490 is 1290 day/years (430 x 3), which is the
figurative date as seen in the earlier example (of when they attempted to
enter the promised land), but a literal 1290 years earlier was 1876 BC, when
they entered Egypt 430 years. Thus the 430 days of the between symbolic AD 60
and AD 490 are again being emphasized by a chiastic numeric. (That is, 430 is
being overlapped twice by the intersecting of literal years and days of equal
value, that intern run along a symbolic day/year grid that also intersects the
same!) All this is complex at first reading, but rather simple after a few
days at it. It is important because all this holds the key to both finding and
interpreting the picture bible codes.
Ezekiel records the arrival
of the first exiled person from Jerusalem to Babylon on a day that was 275
days after the New Year of 586 BC. Thus, that day symbolized as AD 275. The year
AD 275 also falls along the 430-year cycles. For example, 430 years after
literal 586 BC of the fall of Jerusalem is AD 275--- and so forth.
what about the date of Ezekiel's 430 day symbolic siege. Surely it would
especially bring forth consistent and important dates that follow this pattern
so as to show us that this is no mere chance. And so it does!
430-days of Ezekiel's siege "a day for each year" began 7 days after
his call. For seven days he sat overwhelmed at the revelation of God. This
seven days symbolized the next literal seven years that would elapse before
the actual fall of Jerusalem. (1290 x 2 days is seven years, or seven years
and one month.) (390 days is 360 days
with a leap month added, the number in Ezek. 4. Notice that the two creation
dates are 4300 and 3900 years before the birth of Christ --- ten times the
span of years given us by Moses and Ezekiel.)
called of God (seven days before he began his 430-day/year siege) 2425 days
before the New Year of 586 BC. Thus that year symbolized as 2426 BC. This date
is a mirror number. That is, 2426 in AD rather than BC falls along the 430
year cycles. For example, 1876 BC (when Israel entered Egypt 430 years) plus
4300 years equals AD 2425. Thus, the 430-days that Ezekiel lay on his side symbolically
besieging Jerusalem also intersects with these numbers, but in a way more
amazing then first meets the eye! They were in Egypt 430 years. Moses sought
to deliver them 40 years earlier when they had been 390 years in Egypt. Moses
failed and himself went into exile 40 years until his call at the burning bush
in the autumn of 1447 BC. This is the same numeric pattern found in the dates
at the exodus as seen in the above chart and it is also the pattern that
Ezekiel gives us (of 390 + 40 = 430 days and years). It is also the pattern,
as said, at creation, of 3900 and 4300 years to Christ. Here is how it all
The symbolic date at the call of Ezekiel, we are told,
was 2425 days before the inaugural New Year in 586 BC. That day, as said,
therefore symbolizes as 2426 BC. However, by now the astute reader should be
asking two questions. What about the leap month that occurs every 6 years or
so (see www.360calendar.com), and
what about the other dating method Ezekiel uses throughout his book, namely as
from the year of his own personal Exile to Babylon that occurred 11 year
earlier so that the New Year of 597 BC is also an inaugural year?
God is awesome!
First we answer the first point!
is true that the year of Ezekiel's call can be seen as 2426 BC or 30 days more
(due to the leap month) as 2456 BC. But this is perfect in every way!
example, we saw that 2426 BC plus 4300 years = the mirror of 1876 BC,
when they entered Egypt. However, 2456 BC plus the said 3900 years = the
mirror of 1446 BC, when they left Egypt at the exodus! Or, if you would, the
2456 BC, less the 430 days of Ezekiel's siege equals 2026 BC. This less 3900,
therefore, equals the mirror of 1876 BC ---when they entered Egypt. And so
forth. It is even more complex than this but that is enough for now. (In
passing, we are concentrating on the 430-year cycles, but what of the 490
cycles of Daniel 9? 2426 BC plus 490 x 2 = 1446 BC, the exodus! and therefore
see to Christ at birth and at 30 years of age when He began His ministry. We
have 5 x 490, or 50 Jubilees, etc.)
Now onto the second problem! (And there is a third, namely, the seven days before
the 430 days of Ezekiel's siege.)
We said showed quickly
that Ezekiel dates his prophecies by both the New Year of spring of 597 and
586 BC, which are 11 years apart. This means that whatever dates we have shown
so far for Ezekiel can also be forward 11 years of years. There are 4020 days
in an 11 year period. (11 x 360 = 3960, plus the two leap
months that occur during such a span = 4020 days. This means that the
dates of 2426 (2456) BC and plus the 430 days of Ezekiel's' siege, 1996 (2026)
BC, can be forwarded by 4020 day/years. So let us do that!
call) 2426(2456)BC plus the said 4020 day/years = AD
(His siege) 1996(2026) BC plus the said 4020 day/years = AD
The first thing you
should notice is that the siege dates repeat themselves in each others
mirror!!! (Note color code.) Also, all four dates underlined fall along the
430 year cycles. The one day/year difference is intentional since this allows
an exact 3900 years from 1876 BC to AD 2025, or 1290 x 3 (430 x 9) to 1876 BC
from AD 1995.
The dates, on occasion,
can be put back 30 more day/years, but that is infrequent in
the leap-month calendar system. The years 594 and 588 BC were both
leap-month years with 390 days in those years. See www.360calendar.com.
And see the Bible
Prophecy Numbers Website for other information on bible numbers.
However, the flexibility comes when these dates are projected forward
so that in another year these same anniversary dates
will be the same or yield one of the said variations. The dates in
brackets are as they would have been with the leap month cycles during
that period. Likewise, the start of the Babylonian siege at the
said symbolic 801 BC [at that time] would have actually been 831 BC,
being put back a month since a leap month fell in 588 BC. But in most
years it would have been 801 BC. The said symbolic AD 275 of the first
exile remains unchanged. The flexibility is inbuilt as seen in the
biblical use of 1290 days as simply 1260 with a leap month added, and
430 compared to the round 400. All the dates at the time of the exodus
as shown in the chart are the same either way. I have observed that
God will often highlight both positions by some event if two
dates/days are possible, so as to remove ambiguity.
What about the seven days between the call of Ezekiel to when
he began his 430-day siege?
When all the main dates (and most
of the lesser ones in Ezekiel) are studied, one sees a pattern. They are all
dated between the 5th and 12th day of one of the months of the year. Of note
are, The call of Ezekiel, 4th month 5-12th day in literal 593 BC; the vision
of the destroying weapons 6th month, 5th day in literal 592 BC; next major
vision of Israel's wanderings, 5th month 10th day in literal 591 BC; the
beginning of the siege of Jerusalem, 10th month 10th day in literal 589 BC;
the fall of city, 4th month 9th day in literal 586 BC; fall of temple, 5th
month, 7th and 10th day (9th by tradition) in literal 586 BC; arrival of first
refugee, 10th month, 5th day in literal 586 BC; Ezekiel's great vision of the
future temple, 1st month, 10th day in literal 573 BC.
study of these dates show that what is happening here is that the initial
seven days of Ezekiel's call in which he sat "overwhelmed" symbolized
the next seven years until the fall of Jerusalem --- "a day for a
year." This seven days is being carried forward between each major event
so that there remains this week of time. The week of time is divided in two
ways. One way is that it is being divided in half, and this is why the
seven-day call of Ezekiel climaxes seven-years later at the end of the
Babylonian siege---That is, seven years and 3˝ days till the fall of
Jerusalem from his call, or seven years less 3˝ days from when he began his
own symbolic siege. Thus days are intersecting years. (the total of Ezekiel's
siege and the literal one were also 3˝ years (390 + 900 inclusive = 1290 days
inclusive, plus another 40 days for Judah, etc., etc.! Hence, the period of
time in-between sieges are about 3˝ years also.)
breakdown of the seven years that the week of Ezekiel's call as compared to
the other dates within those same days in the months is that the week (and
hence seven-years) are being broken up into a 2 and 5 or 5 and 2 year
patterns. This agrees with the seven years of Joseph's famine which was 2 and
5 years long. (The famine began in 1878 BC, two years later they entered
Egypt, and the famine lasted another 5 years for a total of seven.) Ezekiel
lays out this pattern in years as well. See the "major vision of Israel's
wanderings, 5th month 10th day in 591 BC." This uses the breakdown of 5
days and 2 days (between the said days of the 5th to the 12th.) This puts this
vision exactly 5 years before the fall of the temple to the day, and two years
after Ezekiel's call. Hence we have the 2 and 5 and 5 and 2 day and year
pattern coupled together.
This breakdown will become very
important once one studies these dates as symbolic years, for they interweave
with actual events connecting with precision like grooves on a key.
this reason, when studying the dates of Ezekiel, one should observe this week
in motion. That is, the week should be bracketed around each event. Thus, the
first refugee was in symbolic AD 275 during the week of AD 275 to 282. The
beginning of the siege in symbolic 801 (or 831) BC is during the week of 806
to 799 BC (since the siege began in the 10th day of the week of the 5th to
12th); the fall of Jerusalem was in as symbolic AD 99 (being the 99th day of
the year in literal AD 586), with the week of the 5th to 12th falling as AD 95
to 102; the fall of the temple is one month later and climaxes the pattern
since it is either on the 7th day or 9th day (2 + 5 or 5+ 2 pattern) or on the
9th according to Jewish tradition (the middle of the week pattern). Thus we
have symbolic AD 125 to 132 (with AD 127, 129, and 130 highlighted).
is why, then, the 390 + 40 (= 430) days of Ezekiel's siege ends on the 12th
day of the 5th month since it began on the 12th day of the 4th month a year
earlier (and plus another 40 days), but also it too has its seven days
forwarded. The 5th to the 12th equals as 2066 to 2059 BC (with the Ezekiel's
siege on symbolic AD 2059). (Note, Isaac was literally born in 2066 BC.) Forty
days later equals as 2026 to 2019 BC, (though here as the 15th to the 22nd of
the 6th month, but the principle is the same.) (It should be noted that
Passover and Tabernacles fall between the 15th and the 21/22nd of the 1st and
7th months respectively.)
The lesser dates recorded in the book
of Ezekiel essential create a half pattern. That is, half of 1290, 1260, 1150,
430, 390 from the various lesser prophecies to the fall of Jerusalem and the
temple. the half pattern, speaks of the mirror that completes the other half
so that 645 becomes 1290, etc. The number 2300 is also present as from as
2026 BC (end of Ezekiel's siege), plus 2300 days = as AD 275 (the
arrival of the first refugee.) The 2300 plus the 430 of the siege = 2730 days,
which is exactly 7˝ years.
LXX (The ancient Greek version of the Hebrew)
the sake of completeness, there is one more pattern worth mentioning. It
is clearly a secondary pattern since the LXX is inferior to the Hebrew. Though
the Hebrew is the original, still the effect of the LXX is worth mentioning
since the LXX was well used by many New Testament writers. The LXX reads 150
days rather than the 390, for a total of 190 days instead of the 430, (Ezek.
4). This, too, is intentional in the providence of God. (This is consistent
with the use of the LXX elsewhere in the bible. The 405 gap between the 3900
and 4300 creation calendars is itself divided up as 215 [half 430] and 190 [60
Let us write it out!
(His siege) +
390 day/years = 2036 (2066),
and + 40 = 1996(2026)
(His call) 2426(2456)BC
(His siege) + 390 = 2276(2306) BC, and + 40 = 2236
The first thing to
note is that 2306 BC of the LXX is part of the mainstream of 430's also, and
it is 4300 to AD 1995 (and see 1290's too).
But what is
more amazing is that all the above dates for the end of the 390 + 40 days siege
of Ezekiel using the Hebrew and the LXX ---all eight dates crisscross
themselves in the mirror! (See the color code again. Each are 4300 years back
to itself in the mirror.)
The LXX is also significant in
that it is 2300 to 5 BC, AD 25, AD 35 and AD 65 (i.e., AD 65-72). These are
all important dates to do with Christ and with the fall of Jerusalem in AD 66
to 70. (See AD 65 in the chart at bottom as well.) (Note also AD 65 to 72 less
1260 x 2).
Here is the chart of the important days
surrounding the time of the Exodus.
See bible numbers website for details.
In order to separate whole days from part
days, numbers with a '+' sign are days that
have just ended with the next day just begun. Hence, one
minute before New Year's day is "Day 0," but one minute
after is "Day 0+", which is the same as "Day 1."
