|TIME IS SHORTER THAN WE THINK|
BIBLE TIME CLOCK
Within the pages of the Bible we have a chronology of events that allows the reader to construct a Time Line that takes the age of a person when their son was born and then the age their sons son was born and so on. When these years are all added up we get a fairly accurate figure for events such as the Great Flood. The clock allows us a window into who was alive and when. Adam lived for 930 years, which means he was still alive during the life of LAMECH, Noah's father, allowing word of mouth transmission of events throughout Adams life, which would have included information about the NEPHILIM.
ADAM down to SHEM, Noah's son, gives a total of 1,556 years, Noah was 500 years old when Shem was born and 600 years old during the Flood or 1,656 years from Adam giving us a date of 1944 BC for the Flood.
From The Great Flood we continue to add the birth years bringing us to the birth of ISAAC, 2046 years from Adam or 1554 BC. This period also includes the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. ISAAC is 60 at the birth of JACOB but we don't have an age for Jacob at the birth of JOSEPH. We are told that Joseph was 30 when he became second only to Pharaoh in Egypt. We know the age of Jacob when he died aged 147. He had lived in Egypt for 17 years, so if we take 17 from 147 we are left with 130, then take away Joseph's age 30, we are left with JACOB aged 100 at the birth of Joseph, 2206 years from Adam or 1394 BC. Then we find JOSEPH, 30 years old when Israel moves to Egypt in 1364 BC because of the famine. Pharaoh was more than likely Akhenaten, the father of Tutankhamen. This is confirmd by the fact that there was a Great Famine documented during this time.
TIME BEFORE THE KINGDOM
From the time of Joseph we are told that Israel was in Egypt for 400 years, then they are delivered from slavery by Alahym (God). MOSES being the person chosen to confront Pharaoh.
The EXODUS 964 BC brought freedom from slavery only for Israel to end up wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. JOSHUA takes over as leader when Moses dies on the mountain. After Joshua takes Israel over the River Jordan he leads them in battle against the inhabitants of the promised land.
Joshua dies leaving Israel to their own path that results in the need for Judges to keep control. Israel then ask Alahym (God) for a King to rule over them like the other nations. Their first King was SAUL. He lost his kingship and was replaced by the Shepherd King David who establishes his Kingdom over Israel. Davids Son Solomon builds Alahym (God) a house known as The Temple.
We then have a date from History of 607 BC when King Nebuchadnesar of Babylon destroys the Temple and the people are taken captive to Babylon. After 70 years King Cyrus of Persia conquers Babylon in 537 BC and supports the return of the people to rebuild the Temple at Jerusalem.
THROUGH BIBLE PROPHESY WE ARE GIVEN A TIME SPAN OF 490 YEARS
We now follow the events that lead us through The Messiah's life, death and resurrection, facts that have been confused by Historians arguing about dates and events and over who was right or wrong about history.
Prophesy comes from Alahym (God) what He directs always comes to completion so we can rely on His Word. In any calculation we need a starting point and this is exactly what we are given by the prophet Daniel who was shown what would take place in the future. DANIEL 9: 24, 25, 26 gives a period measured in seventies made up of weeks of years that add up to 490 years that ran from a decree made by Cyrus the Great in 537 BC to rebuild the Temple and Jerusalem and that would culminate in the birth of The Messiah in 47 BC
Herod Antipater the Idumaean, father of Herod the Great. (He was a friend of Julius Caesar who was murdered in 44 BC) would be concerned, not necessarily for himself but likely for his son Herod's future, when he decreed that infants of two years and younger would be put to death, Joseph and Mary having been warned by a messenger to take the baby to Egypt. Antipater was murdered in 43 BC one year after Julius Caesar. At Herod Antipater the Idumaean's death the Messiah would be 4 years old and living in Egypt with Mary and Joseph, they returned home to Nazareth after his death. In 37 BC Herod Antipater's son became King Herod (the Herod responsible for John the Baptist's death) that same year, he would later be known as Herod the Great.
Luke 3:23 Yahushah (Jesus) was about 30 years old when He was baptised by John the Baptist and Anointed by His Father (God) with His Spirit, signalling the beginning of His Ministry in 17 BC. Some time later the Jews said to Yahushah (Jesus) "you're not yet fifty years old, how can you say you have seen Abraham?" John 8:57. Was this an indication that by now He was in his Forties? This would be a logical conclusion if all the other dates match up, He would be 47 at His death.
Following the Biblical Count from Adam to the Messiah using just years, we arrive at Dates of events that fit the Historical record without the use of Calendars that only confuse the mind. We are told that the designation of AD started at the birth of the Messiah, of which there is no historical record. It would be more logical to use Biblical time and Prophetic time to calculate the Birth and Death of the Messiah, and this is what has been done here. This method also fits the Historical years of events down to the present.
