If you have read my study of Daniel’s 70 Weeks, and the Olivet Prophecy, then you will have seen that 2016 is a very significant year. Actually, I will amend the study slightly, as I was originally in error. It would be more accurate to say that 2017 is the focal point we should be focusing on, specifically June 2017. Let’s run through the dates, and I will give you a potted version of the studies, explain why I originally missed an extra 6 months, (taking us from December 2016 to June 2017), and will explain why June 2017 looks to be so important, and should be the month Mystery Babylon falls.
In my study of Daniel’s 490 years, (70 weeks), we discover that the length of time between King Cyrus’ decree to rebuild Jerusalem and the end of the Roman War on Judea was precisely 610 years.
Cyrus’ Decree – 538BC (simultaneous to the end of the 70 year exile, and the fall of Babylon to Medo-Persia)
End of Roman invasion of Judea – 73AD
538BC to 73AD is 610 years, as there is no 0BC or 0AD, – the calendar goes 2BC, 1BC, 1AD, 2AD.
I then showed how the 610 years are comprised of 490 years, (Daniel’s 70 weeks), and a further 120 years.
The 120 years actually equate to the time God put the world under judgement before Noah’s flood, but we don’t need to go into that now.
The 120 years are further broken down into periods of 17 and 103 years. The 17 years are the 17 years when Cyrus’ decree was lost, from 538BC to 521BC, and the 103 years are the period of Jewish history called the Hasmonean period, when Judea was between Greek and Roman suzerainty, from 167BC to 63BC.
Now, when we examine the 103 year period, we find that it poses a problem, as it is in fact 103 & 1/2 years. Why is this?
When God gave the Law on Mount Sinai, he changed the calendar by 6 months, making Nisan into the 1st month of the year, where previously it had been the 7th month of the year. So the calendar gained or lost half a year. When the Law came to an end, God handed back the half year. (This is shown in my study of Daniel 12, where we prove that the Law ends in AD73, but that for some reason we have to add on another 22 & 1/2 years at the end. These 22 & 1/2 years take us through to 95 & 1/2 AD. I do not fully understand the extra 22 & 1/2 years, but clearly this was when Revelation was handed to John. What is clear is the the extra half year of the Mount Sinai Law Calendar is handed back in some way).
I’ll admit, I don’t fully understand the extra half year, but I don’t need to at this point. What we can see is that within the 610 (/ 120) years of judgement time, there is an extra half year which was inserted by God with the change of the calendar. So now we can understand why the 103 years is actually 103 and a half years.
As per my study of Daniel 8, Greek rule of Judea ended when Antiochus Epiphanes ended the twice daily sacrifice. Roman rule of Jerusalem started when Pompey took the temple in 63BC. We actually have a precise date for that, as Josephus tells us it was the first fast of Sivan when the temple fell. That would appear to be 23 Sivan, the fast for Jereboam’s sin, unless there was a fast we do not know about. Antiochus stopped the sacrifice on 15 Kislev 167BC, as we are told in the book of Maccabees.
As records of the Hebrew calendar do not go back past a certain date, we have no way to precisely map these dates on a modern calendar. Kislev is almost always November/December, and Sivan almost always May/June. So 15 Kislev 167BC to 23 Sivan 63BC is broadly speaking 103 & 1/2 years, but not of course with exactitude, as we have no records for this period.
If you take random dates on the modern Hebrew calendar, you will see that it generally pans out to 103 & 1/2 years, give or take a few days. Of course, it is confusing, as the Hebrews ran a lunar calendar, as did the Greeks, of 354 days, the prophetic calendar is 360 days, and the solar calendar is 365.25 days.
Ok, an example 103 & 1/2 years, (from hebcal).
15 Kislev 4447 is 10 December 686AD.
23 Sivan 4550 is 14 June 790AD.
That is 103 years, 6 months and 4 days.
Because the Hebrew calendar morphs in respect to our calendar due to the extra month they periodically added, this will always be a slightly different amount, but it will always be 103 years 6 months approximately. If we had records of the Hebrew calendar in antiquity, we would know exactly how long the time period was between 167BC and 63BC. The half year will definitely be between 177 days, (half a lunar calendar), and 183 days, (half a solar calendar).
Now we need to recap a bit. In 608BC Judah started their captivity. The captivity period was 7 X 360 years = 2520 years. That ended in 1913. However, an extra 103 & 1/2 years, and an extra 17 years, are still outstanding. When we add the extra 103 & 1/2 years we come to 2017.
Where in 2017?
The Federal Reserve Act was passed 23rd December 1913. That was when America, came into bondage to Mystery Babylon. (The Federal Reserve Act was passed at night, which means on the Hebrew calendar it passed on Kislev 25. Kislev 25 was when in 164BC the Abomination Of Desolation instituted by Antiochus came to an end.)
37800 days (105 prophetic years, which equals 103 & 1/2 solar years), from December 23 to now, takes us to…
20 June 2017
Subtracting 10 days to account for 15 Kislev takes us to:
10 June 2017
These two dates then seem to be our markers for the fall of Mystery Babylon. So I would expect to see the end of fiat currencies as we know them, and the return of the Gold and Silver standard, at this time.
As a day = a year in Biblical prophecy, then
1 hour = 15 days
Therefore if Babylon falls ‘in one hour’, we could for example see events unfold very rapidly over a 10 day period.
For instance, we might see the Global Currency Reset on 12 June 2017.
Addendum, (from my notes):
When I dug further into the Daniel Timeline, I realized that the 103 year Gap is actually 103 & 1/2 years.
This is shown in the 21 days that the Angel is delayed (and in Daniel’s 21 day fast).
Taking our decoding unit of 5, given by the Man In Linen holding up each hand, and assuming the right hand indicates multiplication where the left hand indicates division.
A day (of course) = year.
21 X 5 = 105
105 prophetic years is:
105 (of) 360 day years
105 X 360 = 37800
37800, expressed as Solar Years = 103 and a half years. (103 years, 178-180 days – I am not exactly sure, although 180 days = 6 prophetic months.)
