POP18 - Most Clear Proof - Numbers

If you have some suggestions or comments you would like to pass on to me about these pages you may do so at:

In the POP series we are now going to examine
the math used in the Bible.

Matthew 24 is possibly the single most read chapter of the Gospels
among Christian's today,
possibly surpassing the Sermon on the Mount
and the Christmas and Resurrection stories.

The reason for this is that it is the chapter in which
Jesus prophesizes His return.
In the opening verses
the Disciples come to Him
and ask Him
"What will be the signs of His Return".
And He answers them,
and among those answers is the directive
to read and understand The Book of Daniel.
(Matthew 24:15)

This was what brought us to the Book of Daniel.
A remarkable Book in itself,
and containing many interesting prophecies,
particularly about "the Time of the End".

However, our purpose here,
is not to examine such prophecies,
but rather to show mathematical proof
that Jesus was (is) the Christ,
and that the Bible is an accurate source of prophecy.

Later we shall use the same mathematical techniques
in a much more remarkable way
and to a much more remarkable degree
to look at other prophecies in the Bible.

The reason that we are using the Bible
is because it is the cultural underpinning
of most of you readers
whether you consider yourself Christians,
or even religious, or not.

If we were in another culture
such as Hindu, Moslem, or Buddhist,
then we would use the Scriptures of THAT culture,
because the TRUTH that we are examining is universal.
But we are in THIS culture
so we will use THIS cultures Scriptures
to restore an appreciation of the Spiritual Foundation
that underlay this culture but which has become
temporarily weakened.

The basis of time translation in interpreting Bible prophecy is
well established. The basis of using a day as a year comes from
Num. 14:34 and Ezek 4:6 and that a week is seven days is of
course based upon the Creation account. The fact that an average
month is thirty days is found in the account of the flood.

If you wish to confirm to yourself such a detail you can look at:
Genesis 7:11 and you will find mentioned there
the Second Month and the Seventeenth Day of the month
and later in
Genesis 8:3 there is mentioned 150 days
and immediately after in
Genesis 8:4
the Seventh Month and the seventeenth day of the month.

Consequently the above covered a period that was EXACTLY 5 months to the day, (7 months minus 2 months equals 5 months)
which divided into the 150 days gives us an AVERAGE of 30 days per month.
(5 divided into 150 = 30).

The point of all this is NOT to convince you to believe in the story of Noah and the account of The Flood,
but just to show you the NUMERIC Integrity of the Bible and the system that we are using.

The math that we will be using is no more difficult than this,
but with the following I will conclude today's presentation
to allow you to absorb the math up to this point.

It is important that we do this in a step by step fashion.
Leave out a step
and the end result will be questionable.
Comprehend them all and it will be unquestionable.

Okay, our formulas are as follows:

a. comes from Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6 as mentioned above and is referred to as "prophetic time". Some people refer to references that a 1000 years is as a day for the Lord. This latter does have a scriptural and spiritual meaning but when used in the formulas gives lengths of time so long as to be meaningless to our human experience. Consequently, we use the calculation that a Prophetic Day is a year.

b. comes from the Creation account of the 7 days of creation, and that on the 7th day the Lord rested. Without getting into any arguments about whether that was Saturday or Sunday it is still the source of the week having 7 days in our culture.

c. the calculation to determine that an average month, or a Bible Prophetic Month has 30 days has been given above in the account about Noah and the Flood with the appropriate Scriptural References.

d. The determination of "d" derives from "a" and b and "c" above. That a Prophetic year is 360 Calendar years is simply an extension of the above math. If one Prophetic day = one year and a month is 30 days a Prophetic month is therefore 30 calendar years and the 12 months in a year are therefore 12 times 30 or 360, which is to say that there are 360 Prophetic Days or 360 calendar years in a Prophetic year.

e. this is an equivalency example which we will examine in its proper place.

To repeat,
the purpose here,
has not been to convince anyone of any of the Bible Stories,
but rather to simply show the integrity and consistency of Bible Math.

Tomorrow -
an application of these principles
to begin to demonstrate by this math
that Jesus was the Christ.

Peace and love,
