ESSAY 03 - Most Conclusive Proof - Numbers

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.

Among those answers is the directive to read and understand The Book of Daniel. This was what brought us to the Book of Daniel, which is a remarkable Book in itself that contains 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 the readers of this book whether they consider themselves Christians, or even religious, or not. If we were in another culture such as Hinduism, Islámic, 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 culture's 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. 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 therefore 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 1,000 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.
