Adam="man" (and also = "red earth"). [19] 130 800 930 4106 3176 130 0 930 Genesis 5 is a hall-of-fame roster.  So maybe all these people were heroes granted time.  The demon pressure must have been awesome. Can't tell how his 490 is benchmarked.  There are 490 years between Seth's and Enoch's births (both very late in the year relative to their fathers' birthdays) so the fathers probably were 490 persons.

Jared=Descent (=going-down), countdown toward Birth of The Savior;  but also, mankind descends into degeneracy.[23] 162 800 962 3646 2684 622 460 1422

Can't tell how his 490 is benchmarked. 490 years between Seth and Enoch's births, so both fathers are maybe 490 persons;  seems God timed the births as birthday presents for the dads.
Enoch="Dedicated"=Chanuk (from which comes the word Chanukah) 65 300 365 3484 3119 687 622 987 Enoch got this grant in 687. Enoch got this grant in 687. Seems like he evangelized the world.
Methusaleh ="Flood occurs when he dies".  As my pastor and lexicons show,  Methu + saleh = "when he dies, 'it' happens."  And "it" was well-known to be the Flood.  187 782 969 3419 2450 874 687[24] 1656 THE FLOOD (Bible literally calls it "the Inundation") occurs yow 1656, 2450 BC, when Methusaleh dies.  So Civilization itself, almost dies.  Only 8 people alive, Noah and his family.  God's time-grants are always contingent upon sufficient positive volition of believers.  Note how even 8 people's faith justified the continuation of the world. Notice how Methusaleh lives long enough for this to happen.
End 2nd contiguous, qualifying 490 from Adam   3126 980   At least Enoch and his dad met this contiguous deadline, so time continues.

Noah="rest", gets covenant from God (stated pre- & after Flood, each time upgraded).[27] 500 450 950 3050 2100 1556 1056 2006 Notice how Noah grew enough so a new 490 can begin (in yow 1540). THEN God gives him a covenant, and kids to seal that covenant  AFTER 1540 (I.e., 1556), during the Voting window.  Thus they could positively VOTE before it ends.. and they did. Noah's Personal 1000 begins here, yow 1556.

Abram="father of high places" (priestly caste);  becomes Abraham="father of many nations"[29] 100 75 175 2160 1985 2046 1946 2121  Age 75 thru 99,  he gets covenant from God (renaming means adoption) in serialized format like Noah's:  Gen 12:1ff, 15:1ff, 17:1ff.Notice how Abram reached spiritual maturity JUST IN TIME for civilization to continue.  yow 2046 aka 2060 BC kicks off Abraham's time grant:  it's Isaac's birth yr, occurring just before Civilization 2000 begins;  a birthday present for Abraham (100th). Notice 490-yr spread between Noah and Abram's sons' births, to show personal 490's.  Same is true between Seth and Enoch's births.

Isaac's born 490 years after Shem was; like Shem, Isaac's alive INSIDE the Voting Window.  So Isaac had the SAME amount of time to vote as Shem: 54 years.   
Mentuhotep II of Egypt Unites the Kingdom; "Age" in col. D is length of rule for all Pharaohs.[30] 50 2060 2010 2106 2106 2156
Nice birthday present for Jacob, since God promised his grandad 400 years of slavery for his kids -- in Egypt (Gen15:13)!
Mentuhotep III begins rule, last of Egypt's 11th dynasty;  he's murdered by his vizier, who becomes Amenemhet I.  19 2010 1991 2156 2156 2175

Jacob="chisler" (manipulator) 54 93 147 2000 1853 2160 2106 2253

Amenemhet I begins rule, founds the 12th Dynasty in Egypt:  Col. D =length of rule.[31] 29 1991 1962 2115 2115 2144

Sesostris I begins rule, son of Amenemhet I;    Col. D =length of rule. 43 1971 1928 2135 2135 2178

Jacob flees to Haran, marries Rachel and Leah 40

490 years after the Flood.  And a new 490 begins;  for God makes a unilateral contract with Jacob, Gen28:12-17.  It's a first-stage version of the contract. Jacob's 490 does not begin here, but rather 20 years later, when he's renamed Israel.
Jacob renamed Israel ="prince of God"


Renaming means Abrahamic covenant reaffirmed & continued thru Jacob after he fights with the Lord: Gen 32:24-31. It also means his personal 490 begins in 2166.
110 110 1946 1836 2160 2160 2270

Joseph enslaved in Egypt;  the 490-year time-grant shifts to him this year 17 93 110 1930 1836 2176 2160 2270
490 years later = Exodus; Joseph must have been within days of his 17th birthday, so near it as to be called "17" in Bible.  Like a birthday present, again.
Amenemhet II begins rule:  he is the Pharaoh of the Dream.  See Sesostris I, above. "Age" in col. D is length of rule. 34 1929 1895 2177 2177 2211

Joseph becomes vizier  30 80 110 1916 1836 2190 2160 2270 Two 7's nested in two contiguous periods of 40 years begin here for Egypt, to play out Pharaoh's dream.  Egypt gets its own 490 due solely to Joseph.  Details are under "Joseph" entry in Mirroring.htm.
  40 year grace period ending with  7 FAT years 40
1916 1876 2190 2190 2230 A 7-year period always plays in a 40.  Here, it plays TWICE ("joseph"=double-portion).  It plays 2x again when David became King at Hebron.  
Sesostris II begins rule during the 40 year-period of the 7 fat years.  For all Pharaohs, "Age" in col. D is length of rule. 19 1897 1878 2209 2209 2228

Contig. 40 year grace period beginning with 7 LEAN years 40
1875 1868 2231 2231 2238 2x again, in Daniel 9 accounting for Christ -- with 7 years playing first in siege of Jerusalem, ending 70AD.  The remainder is reserved for Trib.  It played 2x again, in either 1983-1997 or 1990-2003 AD, more likely the latter.  MirrorNOW.htm has the det
Sesostris III rules during the 40-year period of the 7 lean years. 35 1878 1843 2228 2228 2263

Jacob and family enter Egypt.  [32] 130
430 1870 1440 2236 2236 2666  They came on 15 Nisan, Exo12:40-41.  They left exactly 430 years later, to the day.  Bible timeline is continuous from Adam. Thus you can derive Joseph's dates which fall in between, for Bible reveals them in terms of his ages when Jacob left Haran, and when Joseph became enslaved, vizier, etc. 

Amenemhet III begins rule;  he is the Pharaoh under whom enslavement began a few years before Joseph died (1840 and 1836 BC, respectively).  45 1842 1797 2264 2264 2309 So the 400-year slavery promise to Abram in Genesis was fulfilled, along with a 'reimbursement' of 30 years to compensate for Joseph's first 30 years, so to speak.  But Joseph's 30 years is nested inside Jacob's reimbursement of 60 years, as "Seedmaker" link in Mirroring.htm demonstrates.

12th Dynasty descends into chaos, and Egypt remains under foreign incursion/domination until the 18th Dynasty 227 1797 1570 2309 2309 2536 Notice how enslaving the Jews resulted in the enslaving of Egypt.  Anti-semitism is always punished.
End 5th contiguous, qualifying 490 from Adam   1656 2450   Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph each met this qualifying 490 deadline.
Ahmose, founder of 18th Egyptian Dynasty: notice the royal "-mose" suffix.  Idea of being drawn out of the water (Isis' favor).  This will be the Dynasty which rescues Moses from the water (hence his name). 24 1570 1546 2536 2536 2560 The year 1570 is 490 years after ISAAC was born.  God keeps time well, doncha think?  So a new dynasty is born when Isaac would have been 490 years old.  This Ahmose expelled the Hyksos and invaded Palestine, the future promised Land of Israel.

Amenhotep I begins rule; he can't bear kids, so appoints his general as his son, known to history as Thutmosis I. 20 1546 1526 2560 2560 2580

Thutmose I, adoptive son of Ahmenotep I, begins rule [33] 13 1525 1512 2581 2581 2594

Thutmose II, natural son of I, begins rule;  he married Hatshepsut, his half-sister -- she's a God's Wife, thus giving him legitimacy. [34] 8 1512 1504 2594 2594 2602

"God's Wife" Hatshepsut, half-sister and wife of Thutmose II, rules in the name of the 'heir' when Thutmose II, dies.  [35] 22 1504 1482 2602 2602 2624

 "Thutmose III" begins co-regency with Hatshepsut.  There are TWO people:  first, Moses=Thutmose III until 1480;  then, the son of Thutmose' II's concubine, from 1480-1450. [36] 54 1504 1450 2602 2602 2656

Moses 40 80 120 1520 1400 2586 2586 2706 Moses born Just in time!  Moses is the 2nd-1000 person;  the 490 person; the start of a new nation, all by himself.  God twice offered to destroy all Israel and start over with Moses, Deut 9:14, Num14:12.
End 5th (historical, intercalated) 490 from Adam     1516 2590  
Moses leaves Egypt 40
1480 1440 2626 2626 2666 Notice how MOSES' 40 wilderness-years occur during the 70-year voting period.  His Vote ALONE is enough to lead, and the Jews+Egyptians who converted were enough to make a nation of six million adults and kids.  Classic illustration of the voting window's importance.
Amenhotep II, Pharaoh of the Exodus, begins rule. [37]
25 1450 1425 2656 2656 2681

End of Jacob's personal 490

1940 1450 2656 2166 2656 Notice how VITAL is the personal 490. From here on, only Joseph's 490 justifies time -- lasting just long enough for Moses to be developed spiritually, to justify Israel's removal from bondage.  
End 5th (historical, intercalated) 560 from Adam     1446 2660  
Moses returns to Egypt;  gets covenant from God, Deut 9:14, Num14:12. Israel will only survive due to Moses.   80
Notice this happens AFTER voting window ends!  God's description is exacting, just as in the Flood account. Moses returned early in y.o.w. 2665, for the early plagues hit ripe barley; but Exodus is in Abib (=EARLY barley, modern name=Nisan).  So plagues occurred over about a year, kinda like the Flood's length.  Moses' 81st birthday was shortly AFTER Exodus; & he entered Egypt near his 80th birthday.  So he gets a double birthday present (going in, then coming out), much as the Flood was Noah's birthday present.
Moses leads EXODUS 80
Israel rejects God as King 100 years before Moses' 490 ends, but 1st Temple Dedicated at its end.
Nation Israel born; New, Corporate 490 shifts to Exodus date, due solely to Moses.  
1510 1440 70 2666 2666 4176 490 yrs prior, Joseph enslaved in Egypt. 430 yrs prior, Israel entered Egypt, enslaved during the last 400.  400 yrs later, David's born.  30 more yrs later, David's crowned at Hebron. 490x3 yrs to the DAY, Christ dies on the Cross (see PassPlot.htm).
End of Joseph's Personal 490
1930 1440 2666 2176 2666 Joseph's 490 baton passes at the LAST MINUTE.. to Moses!  
Thutmose IV: he probably began rule in 1440, not 1425.  He made a diplomatic marriage (which makes sense, if he had no more army).[38] 8 1425 1417 2681 2681 2689
Israel enters the Land
1510 1400 70 2706 2706 4176 Notice the nation dies on the third '490' from entry into the Land.  Absent Christ, we'd not exist.

End 6th contiguous, qualifying 490 from Adam   1166 2940   Moses met this deadline.  Notice that as time passes, qualifying deadlines are farther apart vs. historical, so must be met MUCH earlier each time! Here, historical deadline is 210 years later!
End 3rd Contig 1000 deadline for a Believer to grow enough to justify NEXT 1000. 3000   Abraham won it back in 2046;  Moses got it in 2666.  So they overlap.
End Abraham's Personal 1000  
1060 3046 2046 3046  
Israel rejects God as King
1050 1010 3056 3056 3056 Israel's rejection occurs just after Abraham's 1000, & before new historical 1000!  Israel thus LOSES its TIME, which instead goes to David, Acts 13:20, 2 Sam 7. 
Saul becomes King;  in Acts 13:20 Paul calls this a 490 accounting loss made up by David's Kingship.
1050 1010 3056 3056 3056 How ironic: Paul who used to be Saul, explaining the Last David via first Saul who came before first David.
DAVID:  490 shifts AWAY from Israel to David, who gets covenant from God for Messiah and Temple (2 Sam 7 +  "my servant David" verses after his death). 30
77[39] 1040 963 3066 3066 3143 1000 years after David's birth, Herod (the Great) is made tetrarch of Judea by Antony.  That resulted in Herod to becoming king of Judea, thus preserving THE TEMPLE.  Else Messiah could not be born. 490 dating from his death ends 474 or 473 BC, the year of the Haman conspiracy in Esther. There's also a covenant dating from his anointing by Samuel, maybe:  but that date isn't given, so maybe it's not relevant.
David crowned at Hebron 30
70 1010 970 3096 3096 3136

 430 years prior was Exodus.  God plays on the time Israel was in Egypt. David's 490 from Hebron Kingship ends the year after 2nd Temple construction resumes.
Civilization 3000 begins         1006 3100            
David King of all Israel LATE in 1004. Given wordplay on seed (=Zerubabel) in Haggai 2:18,20,23, was he crowned 25 Chislev?[40]     1003 970 3103 3103 3136 1000 years later, the Lord is born.  David crowned during the voting window!
David Retires from Kingship

970 970 3136 3136 3136 1000 years later, the Lord's Humanity dies on the Cross (14 Nisan 30AD).

God crafts the 49, 70 and 7 from Temple's remainder (490 - (950-586BC)). 1st Temple dedicated, 1Kings 7:1, 8:1, 9:1; 2Chron 5:3, 7:7, 8:1.  490 given it due to David & Moses.  490 years prior=Exodus.

God's 490 in Dan9 is based on 586BC.  It goes like this:  586-70 yr voting period =516BC, deadline to finish rebuilding Temple;  then the 70 is paid back, so 516-70=446BC, deadline to finish rebuilding Jerusalem.  That leaves the 126 yrs the Temple 'lost' due to dying early, plus the 364 years it stood, plus ANOTHER 70 years it would be 'owed' in sabbatical (voting) years, IF the Temple remained standing.  (So Chanukah later became a big deal.) [42] 950 586 3520 3156 3520  So  the 49 weeks are a reward, RESTORING part of the 126 yrs' shortage; which ONLY occurs, if both 516 and 446BC deadlines were met.  Then follows the 364 yrs plus 70 yrs, called "62 weeks".  The remaining 7 yrs of the 126, are reserved for the Trib.  SO THE TRIB MUST BE REAL, not an allegory.  A real payment of years OWED in the future.  See how it's a clear JUSTICE accounting, not woo-woo magical numbers?  The 490-year unit in Daniel 9:24-27 is in SUB-UNITS based on a 490 granted Temple, vs. its longevity; + 70-yr piece in Dan 9:2 (70+490=560, & 490 +70 +490 =1050). So if God grants 490-yrs in the PAST from which He crafts RESTITUTION, then 490-yr units were granted to prior believers.  That's how God caused me to find His orchestration of Time back in late spring 2004.
Cyrus Decrees Temple rebuilt.  But GOD decreed it in 586BC, per Dan9:24. 538 538 3568 3568 3568 538BC is important to context of Daniel's prayer.  It's NOT Cyrus' Decree God dates from, in Daniel 9.
Daniel's Prayer in Daniel 9[43]

Did Daniel pray due to Cyrus' decree, or is the decree due to Daniel's prayer? I don't know yet.  But he prays at the end of the 40-year judgement period.  Daniel is then age 60-70.

Here we see the BALD impact of personal 490's protecting Temple and Jerusalem, why they are even alloted time.  David's personal-and-thus Temple 490 will be the ONLY REASON the world continues until Christ's Birth, as the other 490's have run out.

End 490 for 2nd temple, had First and 2nd Temples been always standing (balancing-to-original-design line item)
30 4136 3646 4136 Contiguous 490's  MUST be maintained to justify time.  These shifted to David from Israel, & to Temple from David.  Notice how ALL 490's all CONVERGE here in yow 4136.  All the way back to Adam.
TIME GETS DEBITED:Millenium was to begin BY yow 4200, when 4th 1050 ends; 4150-4200 is a voting period, so Christ must finish by 4150 to justify it. That deadline shortens: Daniel 9:25-27 explains. First, -7 yrs for Trib = shortens it to yow 4143= 1000 yrs after David's death, = AD 37. GOD USES DAVID'S PERSONAL 1000s TO CRAFT END OF TIME; that's why 1Kings 6:1 (telling you David died in 963BC) is there. Israel has no time left if Messiah didn't finish by 1000th anniversary of David's death. When Israel rejected Christ, it rejected that anniversary; which left only the 1000th anniversary of his retirement from Kingship (970BC+1000=30AD). Which equals, 1st Temple's second 490 ending, had it not been razed (Temple is based on David, per 2Sam7). 'Hence another debit, -7 yrs = His 4136 death date = 30AD. Perfect God Who Decreed Free Will, has Perfect Contingent Plans.
Dan 9:25 plays thusly: Christ is cut off in 61st week; Israel's cut off in 62nd; a 7 always plays within a 40, so interval between 61st & 62nd MUST be 33 yrs, which must be mirrored back, since they are Savior yrs (His Lifetime).  But when Daniel was given all this, it was possible that the two cutoffs occur co-terminous (a single 7-yrs in last 40 yrs, had Israel been positive).  Of course, that 62nd week played from 64-70AD.  Also, see God 'reserve' 40 yrs for His  Life:  compare David's age @King & reigning period, to Christ (Who was BORN King), with accting in Dan 9:2, 24-27.  See also "To Be or Not To Be" table in Mirroring.htm & pink table in PassPlot.htm for breakdown.  Matthew 1's use of 14 might also refer to this double 7 debiting, besides his usual double-7 entendres to show the 490 was fulfilled.

44 4150

 44-94AD (yow 4150-4200) is the most important voting window in history:  the old 1000 & 1050 window was 'due', yet time's truncated due to extreme positive & negative volition. 
Nero persecutes Christians in Rome, Jews revolt in Judea, siege of Jerusalem fitfully begins.[52] 64 70 4170 4170 4176 When God created Israel's holidays, sum of Passover plus Pentecost depicted the final 57 yrs of her pre-Millennial history.  So originally, Trib mirrored His Sacrifice during Passion Week.  The 57 would play in reverse:  50 yrs then 7 Trib yrs.  (Even if Israel accepted Messiah, the leaders would slay Him, per Isaiah 53:8.)  Last 40 yrs of the 57, would be the usual warning period for Israel.  Those 57 yrs must BEGIN by the 1000th anniversary of David's Death, the outer limit of Time.  Thus Messiah must die by then, so Trib will END with the 1050 (=yow 4200, 94AD), as next year (4201) was Jubilee, 2nd Advent, Isa61. So He'd live 40 yrs=David's reign; die in 4143; then 57 yrs 'play', ending in 4200. As it happened, the people rejected Him.  So, Plan B, catchup: Temple still razed on time, but w/ only 40 yr-warning (that's why the Lord was on earth for 40 days, not 50). Too few believers matured for Rapture to occur then.  So John writes a generation later, to explain that.  Hence Trib is now undated, as Acts 1:5-8 warns.

The Great Schism (Catholic Church splits between East and West) 1054 1054 5160 5160 5160 This schism was healthy, Breaking up the monolith. So note how Islam suddenly 'revives' to motivate reuniting:  a new contiguous 1000 starts (Paul's victory time-grant complete, someone unknown picked up his baton). At this point, Catholics control 'north' of the Med, and Muslims, 'south'.  From here on the 'north' will make incredibly fatuous decisions, especially the Byzantines.  Classic split like Judah and Samaria after Solomon, with the latter going under first.  Idea is to marginalize any BTTB movements in favor of the political cause.  Same ol' same ol' gambit, Satan polarizing everyone in order to unite them under a tyrannical banner for relief.  Even as today.
Seljuks (of which the Mamelukes were a part) completely replace the Abbasids and Shia.  The latter had been declining for two centuries, so rulerships were fragmented.  The Seljuk Turks united everyone, essentially.  Hence the return to conquest. 1055 1055 5161 5161 5161

Rev17 resurgence:  Crusades Begin.  See, they didn't have TV back then, so that the Dome of the Rock could easily advertise its Daniel 9:27 meaning to the world. To make everyone feel holy and MURDERING about going back to a place the Lord warned should be SHUNNED, in Matt24.  Just like today.   1096 1396 5202 5202 5502 Nice touch, Satan pulls off an anti-1000 (see yow 4150-4200 entries):  due to the 732AD stalemate, Islam lost the will to attack Christianity, so now the tide reverses.    So Satan&Co. kindly provided Crusades,  to keep Jerusalem,  Temple, Dan9:27, Matt24 and Rev11:1ff,  constantly in mind. Tweaking God's Plan, to reverse it.

Papal-backed West recaptures Jerusalem 1099 1187 5205 5205 5293 Satan plays both sides, Catholicism and Islam, always to key to Temple.  Here, it's roughly 490 years after Heraclius ascended Byzantium's throne, Mohammed allegedly got his 'revelation', and Boniface set up the martyr holiday which would later become Halloween.  Cute.  Of course, this means warfare in the region will step up, keep the Crusades going.  Preview for coming attractions in 1948.
BTTB: Cistercian Reform monasteries (related to Cluny) founded and flourish.  This group, and even more the Waldensians (q.v. below), probably accounted for the God's Grant of another 490 and maybe even the 1000-year unit of this time in history.  1098 1540 5204 5204 5646 Notice the countertrend to Rev17 occurring contemporaneously.  These Cistercians, like their Benedictine brethern the Cluniacs, are expressly formed to prove to the common man that they are NOT like the clergy. All future dissenting and the Reformation itself, is sourced in these monks' missions, and the dissenters derived their courage from such missions' beliefs. So this is a quiet countertrend.  If you're studying Bible in these days, you're doing it in secret, and you have to hide in plain sight (i.e., just dully copying the manuscripts).

BTTB:  Waldensians

1150 1848 5256 5256 5954 This was such an important BTTB it never really died.  Can't beat those learning the Word.  Yeah, they weren't altogether right on all doctrines, and who knows if they had full copies of all Bible books. 
Saladin captures Jerusalem,  thus justifying further Crusades.  These will continue until 1244, with the period 1229-1244 being under Crusader control. The warring helps to destroy Bible, Jews, Christians. 1187 1229 5293 5293 5335 Click here for Witness to Saladin's battle 1187 is close to 560 years from the last time Jeru was taken, timing seems gratuitous. 1229 and 1244 don't seem to key to any parallel event 490 or 560 years prior.
BTTB:  Albigensian 'crusade':  really, slaughter of those who have a weird interp of Bible, the Cathars.  The Waldensians who are more accurate Biblically, are lumped in with the Cathars by Rome, and also persecuted.  But both groups avidly understand that only God and His Bible is the proper authority.  1210 1229 5316 5316 5335  The people side against Rome and with both groups of 'heretics', this time.  Nearly destroyed France, Germany and Italy, the ensuing civil struggle.  Funny how even today's encyclopedias covering this period just use the term 'heretic' as if it were correct, as if man had a right to fight 'heretic' beliefs.  Satan knows how to use the power of suggestion.

Mongol invasions check Seljuks;  Europe almost invaded but suddenly spared maybe due to King Wenceslas' BTTB movement (per my pastor) in 1241.  So Mongols instead go east.  They defeat the Seljuks, sack Baghdad in 1258, and stay east of Europe after that. 1231 1370 5337 5337 5476 It was probably a sect of the Waldensians God developed to so advance that the invasion of Pest could be stopped by the death of Jintai (?) Khan.  By Mongol law, they had to return home.  And they never returned to Europe.
Mongols decline, freeing the Turks to throw off the Seljuk yoke;  many smaller polities result;  all are gradually usurped by Osman, founder of what will become the long-lived Ottoman Empire, born this same year as Mongols sack Seljuk Baghdad.   1258 1347 5364 5364 5453

S. England -- against Jews, p.110 Dowley Book 1290 1290 5396 5396 5396

Philip IV deposes Pope of Rome 1303 1303 5409 5409 5409 Papacy becomes dependent on secular largesse from France.  Thus begins in seed form, what will be called the other Great Schism, which is behind the 100 Years' War soon to follow.  The Reformation would have had no political underpinnings without this deposition to set up the players.
Hundred years' war, mostly between England and France (Platagenets and the Capetians).  Partly derived from the stupid papal battles.  Nearly destroyed everyone.  Functioned to solidify national territories, no one really gaining much.  However, God will use this to divorce the papacy from power over the kings.  From here on, nationalism matures. 1337 1453 5443 5443 5559 Anti-490 regular trend; notice how Satan 'replies' to the BTTB with a counter to distract from learning Bible.  Notice further that everyone fights this time:  the Moslems are on the borders, popes fight and embroil Europe;  and there's this stupid dynastic dispute between England and France, where the MOST pro-Bible people are quietly located.  
Rise of Ottoman Power; Ottomans seem like the Turkic equivalent of the Hapsburgs, historically.  Like Cyrus did, Osman's son Orhan basically conquers (here, Byzantium circa 1347) by marrying the Emperor's daughter, which Emperor he helped put in power.  Click here for extensive history 1347 1922 5453 5453 6028  That wouldn't have happened if the schism of 1054 -- stupidest thing on earth! -- didn't occur.  So by 1355 Orhan will be fighting and winning in the Balkans, thereby able to wipe out BOTH 'catholic' empires.  Thus begins a kind of double-envelopement of Europe by rival Moslem powers.  The Ottomans are from Anatolia, but the remaining Seljuks, Fatimids and Almohavids still have power on the other side of the Med.  All that is about to change, here.  The Ottomans will win out and make the Med their lake until the end of WWI.
Rise of Tamerlane on the ashes of the Mongol khanates.  He will end up challenging the Ottomans, because his southern border in Anatolia is contiguous to theirs.  Ruthlessness is a deliberate strategy.  Babur, founder of the Mughal Empire in India in 1526, will be one of his descendents. 1370 1405 5476 5476 5511
This is yet another Moslem power, but with the characteristics and moxy of (Temujin) Genghis and Ogotai Khan.  God used it to keep the Ottomans busy, akin to a two-front war.  Thus God bought time for Europe to prepare and wake up to Him. Note the BTTB confluence in the next few rows.

Ottomans beat the Mamelukes in Egypt; so Ottoman rule begins there, too.  Ottoman Moslems Reconquer Jerusalem: Notice how the BTTB is countered by the Moslems to distract everyone from learning Bible, even later in the same year.[65] 1517 1517 5623 5623 5623 Notice the continuing, increasing, side-by-side nature of discovering and studying Bible, and the constant Moslem distraction:  idea of do you fight for some hunk of ground the Lord warned you to avoid in Matt24, or do you ground yourself in His Word.  Same test as back in the 600-700's.  Satan keys tactics to Word interest and to historical 490's, so maybe the 490-year ties to Temple/Jeru dates are just derisive, gratuitous haha's.  The year 1517 doesn't seem to trace back to anything parallel 490 or 560 years prior, so it must be Luther's theses which are the 'worry' Satan counters.  Ironic, since Luther was anti-semitic.

Suleiman the Magnificent comes to power.  He will war in Eastern Europe, but will increasingly use diplomacy and economic tactics rather than war with the West, in order to split its members against each other;  but will use war with the East.   1520 1566 5626 5626 5672 This can't be a coincidence. Satan doesn't give up easily.  The rise of this able ruler has the effect of making the Ottoman Empire a major European power.  It also has the nice effect of marginalizing BTTB movements so people return to the power of big religion (as a psychological defense mechanism).  Satan's not stupid.  Interest in Bible means people will want to find manuscripts in the Levant.  So Islam needs to be rolled out to 'protect' them from being found.

1540 1540 5646 5646 5646 The Reformation begins, how ironic.  From here on out, a multiplicity of client nations exist;  baton passes from one to the next as one among the group weakens so another strengthens.  Hence political entities largely stabilize among them.

Middle East freed up due to 9/11 and US Policy in the region. 2001 2007 6113 6107 6113 The four generation voting window which ends in 2130 began in 1970.  That's when the Middle East became a hotbed, what with the fallout of the Six-Day War.  Since that time, Russia has fallen, China's communism also fell, and basically the world opened up.  This allows people to be free to get Bible.  As always, Bible comes to the one who wants it.  This time, through technology and globalization.  Middle East is the hardest place on earth to get real Bible.  So God used 9/11 to get it out even there.
POLITICAL RALLYING for Israel, violating Rev17, Matt24, 2Chron 7:14, many other verses.  THIS IS A RELYING-ON-EGYPT TRAP, just like Isaiah warned about back in his Chaps 28-37.

IMPORT: God Decrees that Time only exist on a contingent basis, subject to humans WANTING Him. 
Wanting God is essentially a 'vote' to know God and be with Him.  So He orchestrates Time based on that criterion:  for if you don't want God, you don't want His Blessing, either.  Time is a blessing. Thus His Accounting System for Time, is based on Justice Principles of Blessing.  As was true even in the Garden, God decrees Time continue ONLY on a contingent basis, so it can end any day.  Hence God grants the world up to 1050 years more to live, solely as an award to a BELIEVER in it.   The award must begin during his lifetime or when he dies;  it then runs until 490 and/or 1000 years afterwards.  The grantee must be supermatured (=knowledge of God + believing in Him, BOTH).  It's an internal soul development criterion, not works.  If multiple believers during the same historical period have such awards, the QUALITY of that time improves much.  The converse is also true:  the fewer awarded, the worse off the world (i.e., wars, economic disaster, etc).  Flood, Temple Destruction, thus the Rapture,  each illustrate this converse. 

By Divine Decree, it's about VOTING, from Garden to end of time.  So all time hinges on VOTES.  You can vet this doctrine in Bible.  For example, every verse with a date, is first designed to show how it FITS within God's Doctrine of Allocating Time.  1Kings 6:1 thus shows Temple got started 3 yrs late (should have begun when David died), but it still finished BEFORE the 490 yrs granted Moses, ended.  Matt16:2-3 is a command to KNOW this doctrine; Moses asked the Lord, "teach us to number our days", Ps90:12.  So there are thousands of verses on this doctrine.  But it's easier to see, in some passages: God uses His accounting system in Dan9.  God subdivides the 490 based on when 1st Temple was dedicated (950BC, 1Ki8:1) & razed (586BC, Jer52:12-14).   Dan9:2's a voting period, mirrored back twice before the new 490 even begins.  Next, Dan 9:24-27 is a sum: repayment of 364 yrs 1st Temple operated (950-586BC), + 126 yrs'  lost time when Temple razed (950-490=460, 126 yrs later).  Hence 7 & 62 weeks (490-364 1st Temple longevity=126 remainder, -70 in Dan9:2 again, justifiable if the new 364 completes,  - 49 =7 reserved for Trib).  So the new 490 is contingent on Israel voting to rebuild Temple & then Jerusalem; thus Dan9's span to Crucifixion is not 490 yrs, but 623:  586BC -70-70-490+7=37AD.  It gets cut to 30AD, when Israel rejects Christ: so the leftover '7' plays from 64-70AD.  Israel's time ran out. Per Book of Hebrews, Church has its own covenant so is not Israel;  but Church's "time" is used to BRIDGE & RESCUE Israel's yet-unplayed, promised Trib & Mill.  Column G's  year "4136" rows show why.

Bible thus shows from Genesis 5 onward how God blesses the world by association with strong-in-faith believers.  Bible tracks these people via date schemae based on this 490/1000 accounting system -- thus you can learn the doctrine, and grow up enough to get such an award, yourself.  So this spreadsheet follows the Bible's tracking.  (Post-96AD you can discern by interplay of the Post-Cross schema and Bible's Lev26, Dan9:26, and Rev 6-19 historical trends, what awards have been granted: but you can't identify who got them.  At the Bema, these individuals will be disclosed.) 

Three important rules govern these grants:
The time awarded each such believer has its own beginning and end, starting usually during his lifetime, but always ends 490 and/or 1000 years after it started. 
A believer can get multiple time awards and starting dates based on multiple events in his life (shown here via Noah, Abram, Moses, David and Christ).  As you'll see here, it was ONLY because there were MULTIPLE grants to DAVID, that the world got to live until Christ came.  Very important to study that fact.
Like a relay race, a believer's award must be 'passed' like a baton to a new grantee, before his own time grant ends.  Else, the world's time ends.  (When multiple believers all have 490s during the same historical time, it's the LAST of these which governs.)  Shown here via Noah to Abram to Joseph to Moses to Israel to David to Temple to Christ.  (Note continues in A4.)
(Continued from cell A2's note.)
Brick-red background cells
alert you to convergence: time awarded in the very year it would otherwise run out.  So from Adam through Christ, the world almost ended at least SEVEN times.

So here's the race (Heb12:1-2), the prize, the catch:  the world runs on its own 'clock' which dates from Adam's fall (G column).  Hence God's goal is to award someone a PERSONAL time grant before each historical world deadline, occurs.  Consequently, somebody's award must be continuously running 'beneath' the world deadlines, for the world to continue living. In this spreadsheet, the world's own historical time deadlines are thus displayed as 'stripes' of solid gold (490 or 560 years) or hatched green (1000 or 1050 years).  Thus you can track the lighter individual 'stripes' versus the world's, every 490, 560, 1000, and 1050 years. The individuals themselves, are highlighted with light-blue backgrounds.

Given #3 baton-passing rule above, and like a lunar year which is not intercalated, the 490 and 1000 world deadlines run contiguous upon each other, as 'qualifying periods' -- deadlines by which an award MUST be given, or else time runs out.  So for a QUALIFYING 490 or 1000, the next 490 or 1000 must piggyback (start in the same yr the other one ends, analogous to a Jewish day beginning the prior night) -- and someone NEW must be awarded that next 490 yrs BEFORE the qualifying period ends -- or the world's time ends.  

So to track, find the world historical deadline, and then compare it to what underlying qualifying periods or personal grants, are also running.  IF that #3 contiguity qualification is met, an added MASS VOTING time grant is given the world, and real world historical time is 'intercalated'.  The grant is 70 yrs for mass BELIEVER votes, Jer25, Dan9:2; it is appended to the first 490 beginning within a '1050' unit of world time (Dan9 was an exception, because time should have ended).  The second voting unit is 50 years for UNBELIEVERS, appended to the end of a '1000' unit of historical time.  These 'intercalated' voting periods are appended due to the Angelic Trial:  if mass votes are too negative, time ends for those who negatively voted, akin to the Flood (Gen 6), and Israel in the wilderness (e.g., Num 14:12-29).   Satan's goal is to get EVERYONE to negatively vote, so that God must cancel Time per His Own Rules.  (Hence the Rapture is undateable for the same reason, theme of Hebrews 3.)  Thus you have 490+70+490 'housed' inside a 1000+50 unit, making for the 1050 years granted the world.  Each of these units and their functions are discussed further in notes to cells C6, F6, and H6.  There are other subunits of import:  Mirroring.htm covers them.

Time ends with the grants; hence Christ had to come "in the fulness [END] of time", as Paul puts it (i.e., Gal4:4).  Greek word "pleroma" really means PREGNANT, ready to birth (Rom8:11ff explains). So Christ came when the LAST 490 allowed (given David's death and 2nd Temple), ran out.  He died at its VERY END;  both HISTORICAL and PERSONAL 1000's and 490's, ALL CONVERGE on His Date of Death, as you'll see in this worksheet.  PassPlot.htm's "Modest Proposal" sublink has more on how His Birth and Death Dates fit God's Calendar of History (Jewish calendar=calendar of all history).
Amazingly, Satan makes derisive burlesque of God's 490-year accounting system, and he uses Islam to make his burlesques.  Like clockwork, within 120 years before a 490 ends, Satan does something with Islam to mock the significance of the time.  Building the Dome of the Rock on a reversal date of the initial destruction of 1st Temple (inter alia) is but one of many gambits he uses.  It's really petty and sad, and really trackable.
For example, one of his demons wrote the Koran.  In it, there's this claim that Ishmael, not Isaac, was sacrificed on that Temple Mount.  That's why Islam took the Mount in what's a reversal of 586 (BC) in 685 AD.  685 AD is also 586+99, and Abraham was 99 when he circumcised himself.. They got the Arabs to even spend the same seven years time building the Abominating Dome of the Rock (<-- reminding you of WHAT it is), as was spent on the 1st Temple.  Yet the Arabs didn't catch on to how they were burlesqued.  Petty, huh.  If you want the cites in the Koran, upload the Word.doc on it,
Satan tracks to the 70 AD 2nd Temple destruction and to the 490's and 1000's, always trying to get focus on the Temple and Jerusalem to create world war.  He doesn't know when the Rapture will happen, either.  If he can stop time before one of the deadlines, he wins and there'd be no Rapture.
Seven post-Cross trends PEAK when a 490's ending; they begin four generations (120 years) prior, like Gen6:  
1) Back-to-the-Bible movement with Bible being 'found', cell G8 format;
2) revolt contra Religion in favor of Bible teaching;
3) mass evangelism;
4) Religion counterattacks 1)-3), cells A6-A8, B6 & B8 formats; 
5) mass inter- or intra-continental migration, cell J8 format;
6) new client nation born on ashes of one dying, cell F7 format;
7) geographic 'spread' of these trends far exceeds prior 490's geography. 
Biblically-significant history magnetizes around each 120-year span.
Between every 490-year pair, there is a 70-year voting window.  Between every 1000-year pair, there is a 50-year voting window.  The last 120 years of a 490 are a time of voting to learn Word.  During these windows, history is most critical, just as during voting period before the Gen 6 Flood.  For if not enough unbelievers want to know God;  if not enough believers want to spiritually mature in God's Word, then the continuation of time cannot be justified.  It's a MASS thing.  So the history of these periods is characterised by mass movements:  politics, migrations, wars, attempts to sway the masses.  Over long eons of time, the scope of these mass-actions vastly increases.  Idea is, everyone should have enough chance to vote.  We're in a four-generation window (ending 2130) now, so you can test the Cell C6 trends with your nightly news.
Two types of 1000's;  one is historical, the other is personal.  Even the historical time grant is given a believer, but it protects the entire world (a secular Justice question).  During the 1000-1050 period, mankind votes to know God or not.  If the votes are too negative, time ends but the believers are delivered (or die).   Extra 1000's, if granted, improve time quality, not length (i.e., more prosperity).  Underlying these are 490s (see the note to cell C6).  Note how the green and gold 'personal' stripes often extend just barely beyond the historical ones, so you know who got the grant.  All grants converge in 30AD, when He dies.  Thus time resets to HIS Dates.  Thus all green (1000 & 1050) and gold (490 & 560) grants, date from Him.
 Trend #4 in MirrorNOW.htm, Religious counterattack, is primarily Rev17, properly speaking; but it always plays in a context of Rev11-17 trends.  This interwoven pattern is particularly bald in history, within the last 120 years of the end of a 490, post-Cross (the gold background entries).

Time would end, absent someone so positive to God, God can justify time continuing.  Usually many people die -- a form of housecleaning so the disease of disbelief can be contained.
This is Trend #6 in MirrorNOW.htm.  As part of preserving history, God sets up a 'client' nation so that Bible teaching can continue and people have a place to vote with their feet, to get it.  Israel was begun for that purpose, and post-Israel here in the Church Age, the 'clients' are among the Gentile nations.  So one of the signs of the ending of a 490, is the (usual) ending of some nation which HAD been a 'client', but now is too apostate.  So a successor nation arises, usually on the heels of the dying one beginning 120 years or so before a 490 ends.  Example of SPQR dying, and the Holy Roman Empire replacing her.
Time grant runs out the SAME year!
When Satan&Co. can't reign in those wanting Bible, they sponsor pogroms.  They also do this to the Jews to maximally encourage them to herd.  Easier to kill your enemy if you can get him to herd in a city or other enclave.  See, if Satan can kill enough Jews then he can claim God can't keep His Promise (i.e., to preserve them, to carry out the promise to Abraham, etc).  Variation of that applies in our very different Church covenant, too.  Part IV of Thinking series is on that topic.
 Satan wants to keep our attention focused on the site of the 2nd Temple (same as the 1st Temple) in order to make us herd together and 'defend' the site, thus motivating genocide.  It's a trend explained most succinctly in Rev11-17.  Rev11 is a FAKE temple, fulfilling Dan9:27.  So since Satan doesn't know when the Rapture will occur, he's got to keep on trying to get a FAKE Temple built.  LvS4a.htm's "Two Stone Witnesses" link explains the gambit, and here you see the actual ATTEMPTS at herding through post-Cross history.

This ties to #1-3 Trends of "Scripture rollout", "Back to Bible Movements", "mass evangelism",  in MirrorNOW.htm.  Historically, you see these peak within 120 years of the ending of a 490 (four generations before it ends, actually).  Historically you'll find a big conflict between the 'establishment' and these grass-roots Bible movements (Trend #4, in MirrorNOW.htm).  In the Middle Ages, Trends #1-3 displayed as a proliferation of monasteries, for example -- that was the only way you could even READ a Bible, generally.
Trend #5, in MirrorNOW.htm.  Within 120 years of the end of a 490, mass migrations across continents peak.  Thus those migrating, are exposed to Gospel and Bible teaching.  You can set your watch.  I'll gradually post the migration entries as I edit this sheet.
God justifies TIME via grant to a BELIEVER who grew enough, spiritually.  It's a relay race:  a new grantee must be developed by the end of the prior grant.  Bible tells you who these people are, thru Cross (light blue).  Historical 490-yr grants are solid gold;  overlapping personal 490's are cross-hatched, lighter gold.  Linking them are 70-yr BELIEVER voting periods: if too many vote 'no', God 'cleans house' w/disaster, but preserves the world.  Hence the Flood: Noah gets a 490, but only Noah and family voted yes; everyone else drowned.  490+70 yrs+490=1000+50 yr UNBELIEVER voting period (overlaps last 50 yrs of 2nd 490)=1050.

Must be at least one person by each historical, contiguous, 490-year deadline:  else time ends.  If multiple persons granted a 490, time's quality improves, but the new deadline is the latest of such grants. 

Next, seven post-Cross trends PEAK when a 490's ending; they begin four generations (120 yrs) prior, like Gen6:   1) Back-to-the-Bible (interest in Bible) with Bible being 'found'; 2) revolt contra Religion in favor of Bible teaching; 3) mass evangelism; 4) Religion counterattacks 1)-3);  5) mass inter- or intra-continental migration; 6) new client nation born on ashes of one dying; 7) geographic 'spread' of these trends far exceeds prior 490.  Biblically-significant history magnetizes around each period.
This is the historical deadline, an absolute year measured from first or Last Adam.  The qualifying 490 must be met by this gold deadline, or time ends.
Remember that this is a hall-of-fame roster, not a complete listing of all the kids sired.  The ones not mentioned come under the usual rubric of 'had other sons and daughters'.

Bible dates "in the year x" of/after a thing/event, Post-Fall (Adam, Temple), post-birth.  So man's days are numbered, Gen 2:17, Gen3:17, Exo23:26, Job14:5, Ps90:12, Eze4:5, Ecc3. 
Bible 'scholarship' seems to forget that until you can DIE, your days aren't NUMBERED.  So any timeline begins with Adam's FALL, never before.  No wonder the Bible's dates seem to be 'wrong' -- WE READ THEM WRONG!  For centuries…

'God doesn't say when He initially created the universe, nor when He later created Adam.  Neither Gen1:1 (initial creation) nor the later hiatus period of "tohu wa bohu" in Gen1:2, are dated.  Gen1:2ff is about the RESTORATION of the earth, NOT its initial creation.  "Genesis" is a Greek word, and means the origin of MAN, not the universe.  (Why don't people do their homework?)  Hence Gen1:2's text on why the earth is there but trashed up, BECAUSE the lights are out:  HS turned them back on again, Gen1:3, etc.  It's some interglacial period being depicted, but SUPERNATURAL restoration is what occurred, as the text makes clear.  Further, Adam is depicted as a scientist in Gen 2, not a hunter-gatherer;  they were not meat-eaters prior to the Flood;  Cain goes out and builds a city.  Why don't those in the inane science debates pro- or con- Bible, notice what BIBLE says here?
"Appointed to take the place of" is the real meaning.  Substitutionary, replacing a lost person.  I'm not sure if Seth is THE 490 person, but his name certainly implies that he was.  Then again, maybe Adam was, since the birth of Seth acts like a birthday present to Adam.
Names from here on are guessed based on roots;  hard to get a lexicon to parse the name.
'Voting Window" means mankind's positive volition to God is being tested.  If V+ is too small, the next 490 will not begin. Principle is in Dan 9:2, and Daniel is invoking it, 'voting' (i.e., as prayer).  Here, this voting period is for believers.  Notice how God mirrors back the 70 years, IF the Temple is rebuilt.  Mirroring.htm shows how that occurred, just after its "To Be or Not To Be" subtable (which explains God's accounting in Dan 9:24-27).
'Could be that Jared is a 490 person also.  Definitely Enoch was.  Looks like Enoch is a birthday present to the dad.
Lamech had to know about the Flood to name his kid Noah.  Enoch had to know about the Flood to name his kid, Lamech's dad, "MethuSaleh" -- since that means the Flood occurs when he dies.  So the WORLD was given long advance notice since yow 687 or prior -- a good 1000 years -- that this would happen.
If "mag" is "magi" root, it doesn't mean he was a sorcerer, but that he'd be regarded as spiritually powerful.  But Lamech's compound roots could be something else.
There are three types of voting periods God grants:  the 70-year period for believers to vote, in the middle of a 1050 (linking the two 490s), Daniel 9:2;  50-year voting period for unbelievers at the end of a historical 1000, evidenced by Bible dates (as you'll progressively see in this spreadsheet);  and here, a four generation period for all the human race, specifically designed so people can vote with their feet to get Bible.  The terms are here stated in Gen 6.  Here, God is announcing the OUTCOME of the vote at the END of the generational voting period: and it is bad.  So He announces He's gonna clean house.  That's the principle which applies to EVERY 490's closing;  here, we're seeing the end verdict.  But look: He goes for a recount, 2Pet3:9, not willing any should perish, to grant ANOTHER four generations (120-160 years, time enough to bear great-grandkids).

You'll see the same terms play within the last 120-160 years of every historical 490.  The seven trends in the 490/560 note to cell C6 peak during that time.  Like clockwork.  Today people can vote for Bible by searching the internet, so it's easier.
A sure sign of a 490 and 1000 person is that God makes a personal covenant.  Time would be part of it (gotta have time to enjoy the material promise of the covenant, hence the need for eternal life to get heavenly rewards, Romans 9). The Ultimate Covenanted Person is Christ, Isa53:10-12.  So He owns all time, too:  Hebrews 1:2-4, 10:1-17 (whole book is on that topic).

There are other ways to identify a 490 or 1000 person:  God giving you kids as birthday presents which are 'spaced' about 490 years from the last hero who got a 490 (Enoch and Seth, Shem and Isaac are 'spaced' sons of winner fathers);  God renaming you, and getting huge chunks of Scripture to write.

Post-Cross, very very high Bible understanding is what qualifies one for such an award.  But a charwoman might have it, as well as a pastor.  Let's hope it's mostly the pastors, tho, since they could then teach us!  Pray for pastors!
Here it's important to remember beginnings and endings of years make for subtractions or additions of 1 or even 2.  Here, Shem TURNS 100 while he is on the Ark.  Arpachshad was born just after the flood ended (works out to two years since it began);  God seems to have timed the births as birthday presents to Shem.  Just as, he did Shem's dad Noah:  490 years later, Isaac is born; so Noah's PERSONAL 490 begins @Shem's birth. See Gen5:32 w/11:10, then Gen7:11, and 8:13-14 (Flood fully receded by Noah's 601st birthday).  So Gen 11:10's "2 years after the Inundation" (began) = birth LATE in Shem's 100th year.  So Shem was born LATE Noah's 500th year, maybe of triplets; and Arpachshad was maybe of triplets, too.  'Check BHS and LXX in 5:32, 10:22, 11:10, 7:11, 8:13-14.  Last two passages mean 'Shem's wife birthed all three within the year AFTER they left Ark (i.e., Gen8:18ff w/1Pet3:20). 
Would you make a covenant with a God you couldn't see, that yeah, the kids you aren't seeing either, WILL BE ENSLAVED FOR 400 YEARS and then a Savior you don't see either, will deliver them and eventually -- long after YOU died -- will save the human race.  Sound like a good offer to you?  HOW MUCH FAITH must you have, to say "yes" to that offer?  But Abraham did.  So would Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph.  Yeah, and had they not done so, the whole human race would have perished.
^Dates and identities for Pharonic rule come from my 1985 set of Encyclopedia Britannica  (called "EB" for short in this worksheet):  Macropedia entries per Pharaoh, and the "Egypt, History of" article in the regular Encyclopedia.  I find this set's  dates MUCH more provable and reliable than other 'scholarship' out there.  Egyptian dating is fraught with controversy, since 1985.
^Amenemhet dies the same way as he came to power -- by palace conspiratorial assasination, in 1962BC.  Sesostris will devote his life to finding the murderers, as chronicled in the Egyptian books Instructions of Amenemhet and the Story of Sinuhe. Now you know why the grandson, Amenemhet II, put his  G-2 ("cupbearer") and royal food ("chief baker") officials in jail for conspiracy. 
This date is the precedence for Passover, as God explains in Exodus 12.  Night-first accounting nests the new day in the evening of the prior day.  So the Lamb must be slain before sundown on 14 Nisan, and Unleavened Bread begins on the same day as the actual Exodus, THAT night, the Passover.  So to our modern eyes it seems like two days, but it's the SAME day in Hebrew accounting.  Because we don't understand God's laws on the Passover in the OT, we mess up the Chronology of both the Exodus, and Passion Week.. for centuries.  And blame BIBLE, rather than our bad scholarship.  Oh well.  PassPlot.htm demonstrates the correct chronology, and you can test it.
He's the Pharaoh of Exo 1:19-22.  But a vizier, not Pharaoh, is the plotting "king" in Exo1:15ff.   You can understand how he'd be dependent on the vizier (there were two at this point) for his power.  Exo 1:15 makes it clear the vizier was behind the edict to kill Hebrew boys, using Pharaoh as a rubber stamp.  He's only been in power five years, when Moses is born.
 But Thutmose II and Hatshepsut have no male kids together.  This is a royal problem.
Hatshepsut's political position is precarious;  her solution to stay a widow, claiming her real dad is the god Ahmose, is sheer genius: thus she saved Egypt from foreigners.  Look: should she marry, she can only  marry outside Egypt, in which case foreign domination resumes.  Her life is pretty much forfeit.  Fortunately she herself bore a God's Wife via Thutmose II, so whoever marries Hat's daughter, gains legitimacy.  She'll use these facts to justify holding onto power, herself.  Her chief rival is Thutmose's son by a concubine.  Moses, of course, she adopted.  Now you know why.  Hatshepsut is the first of the strong female rulers.  She sets precedence, and she does it by appeal to special favor from the gods;  "Moses" means he's a gift from Isis -- clearly, Isis is invoked to stop the killing of Hebrew boys, which ceases as a result of her finding him.  Every ruler after her will invoke special divine favor for politically-touchy policies.  Notice how astute she is.  Moses is 16 at this point, and Thutmose II's son by the concubine, is 10 years old.  Proverbial heir and spare -- and unmarried, both.   So her daughter (a coveted "God's Wife") is a carrot for both factions: those supporting Moses, and those supporting the 'native' son, tho by concubine.  Exodate.htm has more details.
Egyptologists and historians are always puzzled by the bi-polar nature of the historical records left behind.  On the one hand, the record seems to show great amity between Hatshepsut and Thutmose III.  On the other, there's all this defacing of Hatshepsut.  EB concludes that the relationship was good until shortly before or after, her death.  They don't recognize that the ruling period is too long for just one person.  So TWO people, and the first one is Moses.  See Exodate.htm's chronology for details you can test.
'You can only find 9 years of annual campaigns on this guy.  So he did NOT rule for 25 years!  Thutmose IV, who comes next, must have been ruling in his dad's name.  Thutmose IV was promised in a dream by the Sphinx that if he honored the Sphinx, he'd become Pharaoh, says EB.  So this Thutmose IV would not have been the first-born son, huh...
^Notice the reversal of the years' rule.  Bet Amenhotep II ruled only 9-10 years, but Thutmose IV for 25 years.  Very interesting, his diplomacy.  Egyptians vigorously whitewashed their history, especially the Ramses.  You'll hear much about that even in your average cable documentary (i.e., on the History Channel).
 1 Kings 6:1 dates Solomon's reign from David's year of death.  David retired from Kingship before he died (see how 2Chron begins).  So God limits time in Dan 9:24-27 to the 1000th anniversary of David's death..
Notice how his Kingship is consolidated during a 1050 voting period (between 3100-3150). I don't know if 25 Chislev is valid.  The date DOES tie to something in David's life, but I'm not sure what.  It's important to find out.
God never pulls His prophecy events or even the numbers out of a hat, some mere prediction, please-drool-here:  rather, prophecy always plays in a MIRRORING RESTITUTION due to some PAST event.  See, that's how you know it's really GOD talking.  Only God can make time itself a JUSTICE issue.. and, He does.  So when God says 1335 days in Daniel 12:12, yes it's a literal period for Trib believers to count then, but it's BASED on something in the PAST.  So for us now, the job is to find out the BASIS.  That basis must be related to David, somewhere.  It's most likely that since the Lord's Birthdate is 25 Chislev, that the Dan 12:12 is based on an accounting from Him -- but then why was 25 Chislev chosen for the Lord's Birthdate, long before Chanukah, see Haggai 2?  That's what needs to be solved.  A birthdate's 'doctrine' must relate to a PRIOR birthdate of some kind.  That's how God does his matching, and as we've seen, He's pretty big on making TIME into a birthday present.  TIME, and SONS.  Well, Here is THE SON OF TIME!
So here's an interesting thing, maybe goofball, maybe doctrine, let's see:  Daniel 12:12 gives the last hiatus in days;  people in Trib need that for safety.  Obverse  is 7 years' - 1335.  David is promised the Temple and Messiah, 2Sam7;  so Temple's PROMISE begins on David's death.  That's a type of birth.  So Temple's dedication is based on David, not on Israel, 950BC.  That would be n+1 year for intercalation purposes, the 490th anniv of Exodus (1440BC-490);  Exo+1 (1439BC) begins intercalation;  so its anniversaries run 1 yr BEHIND in intercalation.  Exo yr=n, but by its ending, you intercalate 5.25 days.  They didn't do that every yr.  So: 951, n; 952, n+6; 953, n+5; 954, n+4; 955, n+3; 956, n+2; 957, n+1; 958, n; 959, n+6; 960, n+5; 961, n+4; 962, n+3; 963, n+2. 
So IF no intercalation in 960 prior to 2 Ziv when construction began, calendar ran 27 days fast relative to "n"; but in any event is only 16 days fast compared to 963 (n+2).  2556.75 days=seven 365.25-day yrs.  1335 days is in Dan 12:12.  That leaves 1221.75 days.  So if David died 1221.75 days before Temple construction began, he died on the evening of 25 Chislev.  1221.75-1095.75 (three intercalated years) = 126.  126-31 (1 Ziv + all Nisan) -30 (all Adar, non-intercalated) -60 (all Shebat+Tebeth) = 5, so 25 Chislev.  In 963BC, 25 Chislev ran 14 days fast, so =11 Chislev (9/12*5.25+11 days fast at beginning of 963).  11 Chislev is the EXACT OPPOSITE of Pentecost.  Alternatively, maybe 25 Chislev was his crowing date?  The math would be the same, a 'birthing' still metaphorically depicted.  Depends on WHAT 25 Chislev represents.  See, for folks in the Trib, memorability matters.  So this countdown in Dan12:12 must be based on a benchmark date of doctrinal significance, which THEN happens BECAUSE of that significance.  It's not just happenstance.
In accounting, you have to match the character of two like amounts, before you can say you have a balance.  How do we know that Antiochus didn't PICK 25 Chislev to defile the temple with a pig, BECAUSE it was an anniversary of the foundation stone's being laid (see Haggai 2:10, 15, 18, 23)?  And how do we know that they didn't pick that day to lay the stone, because it was the anniversary of David's crowning (or retirement, death)?  Woulda been the thing to do, given the TESTAMENTARY promise of Temple in 2Sam7.
In sum, Scripture isn't silent, we just don't know how to read it.  1Kings 6:1 tells you the year David died, and Haggai 2, the month and day the Lord would be born.  Daniel 7:25 and 8:14 show the parallel to the future Chanukah and Trib; the math confirms these ideas.  But of course, I need more verses in Bible to confirm or refute this.
This is downright scary.  MOSES got the grant of time, and he refused God's offer to wipe out Israel, so f/b/o MOSES, Israel was given a corporate time grant.  That's scary, because then ISRAEL CAN LOSE it.  Which, she did, in 1050BC.  But again due to MOSES, time could go on, pending some other KING God could develop within the 40-year phase-out period (Acts 13:19ff) -- or time ends, baby.  That person was David, to whom the TEMPLE was promised -- so the TEMPLE, not Israel, gets the 490.  Now you know why Daniel 9 reads as it does, mirroring on the PREVIOUS 490 for the TEMPLE.  Which previous 490 could NOT have even begun, had not the TEMPLE been dedicated before MOSES' 490, ran out!
Since GOD is doing the decreeing, the time of the decree dates from when GOD made it, 586BC (Jer25). This way you ALSO get absolute verification that the human-king decrees (Cyrus, Artaxerxes, Darius) are 'on time'.
Classic example of the importance of a 490.  The 490 shifted to the Temple, in 950BC, as the Daniel 9 accounting shows;  so no longer would an individual be granted 490's or 1000's, until Messiah Himself;  so instead the Temple's STANDING warranted the continuation of time, since the Temple represented His Coming.  Because there was a TEMPLE, there could be a nation Israel, see 1Kings 9.  Cannot divorce the Temple and the nation:  no Temple, then no nation, as happened in 586BC.  So it was a matter of VOTING for the Temple to be rebuilt, which Daniel is doing here.  Surely he had prayed before.  But the 40-year punishment period is up (586-546).
Greeks defeated this Xerxes at sea in 480;  so Xerxes was in political trouble.  No telling what might have been the fate of the Jews had God not 'installed' Mordecai/Esther.  The later Persian Kings employed Jewish counselors as a consequence (see Ezra and Nehemiah), despite political upheavals.
This was a major setback for Satan.  As you'll see post-Cross, he's positively obsessed with playing time games on dates related to both the First (and especially the 2nd) Temples.  How sad.
Because God commissioned Moses to lead the people;  because He offered to wipe out the people twice and begin again with Moses;  because He commissioned Moses to write foundational Canon, you know Moses is the 1000 person.  And when Moses LED the people out of Egypt, that's when his Personal 1000 and 490 began (because they voted for God, and obviously so had he).  The Exodus came from Joseph's 490, and ported to Moses.  Always, a personal 490 must underly a historical 490; a personal 1000 must underlie a historical 1000;  and these 490's and 1000's must AT LEAST be contiguous, if not overlapping;  so they string together like baton-passing in a relay race.  Else, time ends.  God can make anyone get the grant.  Even, you or me.
'Herod becomes king of Judea in 37BC.  That protects the Temple.  It's probably because Herod is dying from various internal diseases that the census had to be instituted in Judaea, since it got started long prior, but Herod handled all tax collections and remitted them to Rome.  So the first ROMAN census would be occurring because Herod wasn't expected to live.
'Just as when the 1st Temple ended early, so God did the time-accounting adjustments He showed Daniel in Daniel 9:2, 24-27, so also EARLY success resets the clock.  But the old clock keeps on being compared.  As noted above, the historical 490 couldn't complete (in yow 4150 and 4200) because the outer limit of granted time for the Temple was 30AD (yow 4136). So this is God's BC/AD measuring.  Time resets to 0 for the Last Adam's Success, even as time began due to the first Adam's Fall.
Church has to begin to justify continuing time.  Hence the Lord's statement in Matt16:18 that He would build the Church on HIMSELF (Petra is a famous moniker for Christ in the OT, referring to the Holy of Holies --  never Peter, lol).  Israel had run out of time.  Israel's alloted time would end 4136 at the very outside.  It got 40 years as follows:  33 years mirror-back of Messiah's years because Savior years are always mirrored back;  plus, the 7 He lost by dying earlier due to Israel's rejection (again, because He did it successfully).  That left the 7 Trib years reserved for Israel.  So the difference between 4200 -7 (4193) and 4136+40 (4176) was allotted for Church, the idea being there COULD have been enough spiritual growth to finish the Royal Family of God.  Technically the whole SCHEDULED period from 4136-4193 belonged to Church, but God is paying back Israel time Messiah 'used', which had been in the Daniel 9 promise.  As to Church being completed in so short a time, 1Jn3 and Phili 3:10-12 show it was possible, and Book of Hebrews is dedicated to the proposition of it being expected by the time the Temple was to be destroyed, since that was in the Daniel Timeline.  Again, those two tables in Mirroring and PassPlot show the full accounting.
'The 12 were apostles to the JEWS, not to Gentiles.  Everyone seems to forget this, but Acts is really plain about it, beginning in Acts 15.  So there is no such thing as a pope, and certainly none of the 12 could be one, since PAUL's territory was to.. the Gentiles.  Thus we see the seeds of the Rev 17 lie sown.. lasting until today.  And those involved in popism of course don't even know they are being used as pawns.  ALL believers of any denomination are used as pawns whenever possible; look how Satan used Paul's screwup in 58AD to get him jailed;  but it's easier to track Catholicism in history as an example.
'Notice how Paul begins his ministry during what would have been the UNSHORTENED Voting Window. Paul dies victorious within that Window, thus justifying the next 1000, and continuation of Church.  God gave Paul to write most of the NT Canon.    That's how we know Paul is the 1000 person and the 490 person.
'This is a turning point in history.  The praetorians come to power as caesar-makers, Rome suffers the Year of the Four Emperors, and persecution of Christians/Jews begins big-time.  As a result, CONVERSIONS to Christianity increase.  There'd have been no Constantine absent the persecutions of Nero through Diocletian.
The 7-year period in Dan9:27, gets 'exchanged' for an undated 7-year period cut out of Christ's alloted 40 years.  So the Daniel 9:26-27 ambiguity is deliberate, for two possible outcomes:  one 'seven', if Israel accepts Him;  but two 'sevens', if Israel rejects Him.  The second seven is cut from His Life and grafted in.  So the first seven is simultaneously paid at the time owed, via 'exchange':  the second one, which had been the first, is now undated, technically.  It amounts to TWO 'tribulations', one playing Daniel 9:26, from 64-70 AD, paradigmal, just as the Lord explained in Matt24;  and the other yet-future UNDATED one, playing Daniel 9:27, the "official" Tribulation which ends time as we know it, ushering in the 2nd Advent and the Mill.

This accounting is key to proving the Rapture valid. The Bible numbers in Daniel 9 can only balance that way.  In accounting you must go BACK TO SOURCE and track all changes.  So one must first reconstruct what WAS SUPPOSED to happen, the ORIGINAL scheduled 2nd Advent.  Then you can be sure of proper 'balance', when revising.  God always BALANCES His numbers, so we should, too.
The pure preterist will tell you there's no Rapture, for Revelation depicts future history as trends: that the only prophecy remaining to be fulfilled, is the 2nd Advent.  Some preterists say the Millennium is a yet-future real period, too.
It is true that Revelation depicts history as trends, and the Millennium is real enough.  He gets those parts, right.
The preterist further argues that since Temple was razed 70AD, John wrote in or just before 70AD.  He gets that part, quite wrong;  John's letters show the Temple is already long gone;  his Rev tableaus tweak popular mimes mocking Christians during Domitian's rule;  Rev 4 plays on upcoming imperial policy changes for the Equites (of 98AD or so). 
Most of all, the preterist gets wrong Daniel 9:24-27's math, so can't see there's yet another hanging 'seven' cut out from Christ's Own Life.
Due to Messiah's Success, a 40-year period following His Death has to be inserted, to 'mirror' (pay back) the time successfully completed;  the 40 years ALLOTED to Him, originally (same as David's period of rule).  Two types of 40's here: a KINGSHIP 40 (a reward) and a wilderness 40 (punishment).  One is a mirror-back restitution;  the other, is a loss.  Note how combining both nets out and balances the time.  A 7 ONLY plays within a 40, just as it did for the Pharaoh of the Dream.

So it was always understood that there would be AT LEAST a 40-year hiatus between Daniel 9:26 and Daniel 9:27.  Daniel himself understood it, praying at the end of the 40 years, in 537BC.

Question was, when would that 40 future years post-2nd Temple, play.  You'll see the writer of Hebrews use this accounting implicitly throughout his letter, which is an explanation of why the end will come shortly after Paul's death -- at which time, he's writing (see Heb13:23).

By the way, Rehoboam became king 1000 years prior.  Fitting parallel, since he's the king which caused the loss of Israel due to his cruelty.
Had Israel accepted Messiah, there would have been no "Church";  so there would have been no "Rapture", either (Rapture is not prophesied as an event in the OT, but rather only the times of the Gentiles, hence Trib and His 2nd Coming).  The Daniel timeline to the end of Trib contiguously, would end yow 4200, with a 57-year hiatus between His Death and the end of the Trib.  Idea was to allot 50 years for the Gentiles to be gathered (that's why Pentecost followed Passover, and was 50 days long dating from the LAST day of Passover, total of 57 days representing 57 years, with Trib as a 'payback' for Passover Week).  So here we baldly see the undateable nature of the Rapture as a series of contingencies based ON the 1050.  That trend continues, and we are still in the 'time bubble' of Daniel 9:26, for God uses the Church "time" to bridge back to Israel's time (Church is NOT Israel).  Thus historical trends are all BASED ON Daniel 9:26, as Rev Chapters 6-19, elaborately explain.
Had Israel been positive to Messiah, the world would have been too negative, so during the last 50 years ending 4200, the vote would have been NO.  Hence the Trib was supposed to occur NO LATER THAN 4193-4200.  Messiah had to complete before the voting period began in 4150, so folks have a chance to vote for Him, worldwide.   Also, because time is 'owed' 40 years for His Successful Completion, as originally scheduled.  There would NOT have been "Church", in that case; the Jews would have had the role now assigned to Church, and the Gentiles would have converted into it.  The 7 always plays inside a 40, hence the delay;  but ensconced, inside the final 50-year voting period.
Note how in the very same year, a fake pope is replaced by a real John penning in Rev17 to beware of Rome.  Bear in mind, it's not because it's Catholicism.  The tenets of religion vary greatly, so a rose by any other name still has thorns.  Just so happens we know the name of the religions Satan uses the most, since we have recorded history.

This begins the Dark Ages, as the Rev17 religious harlots eventually gain control of the northern hemisphere.  They kidnapped the Bible from the common man for the better part of 18 centuries.  But in their lust to monopolize or destroy the original-language texts of Bible, they turned out to be the best preservers of it;  either by locking it away, or by their kidnapping causing others to lock it away for protection.  Most any archeologist will easily confirm that ancient stuff has a habit of going 'missing' into private, protecting hands.  It's a trend of history.
Dates for these 10 persecutions (beginning with Trajan's) was provided by a website reader.
This isn't to blame Constantine or any other person or religion.  But rather, the trend begins with his rule.  Sincere people, insincere people, and of course scalawags are used by Satan&Co.  We are all pawns. Satan could just as easily made the Rev17 harlot 'protestant'.. just as he's doing, today.
'Very much like Hitler's Germany, but spread over all of territory around the Med, which was most of the Roman Empire.  This was the time of the Arians, the Donatists, the Nestorians, and a wide variety of other folks who didn't want to be enslaved by the Rev17 harlot.  Granted, some of these dissenting folks had wacko ideas about what Bible said.  But no one has the right to persecute another for his faith.  Very black mark on the royal escutcheon, getting no reward at the Bema.  We should be ASHAMED of this period.  The religious even today still have the GALL to label it the "golden age of the Church Fathers"!  So the harlot is still with us, now in many denominations.
BTTBs aren't accurate on Bible, but they always assert the Bible as THE authority;  that's the only way to GET accurate faith.  So it's the most important 'vote' a believer can make, to get Bible every day.  Catholicism repressed Bible.  So God did some housecleaning, here.  Those invading Europe variantly bought Christianity, and they asserted independent rights of worship.
This was a satanic attempt to encircle/marginalize Western Europe, but it didn't work.  People could vote with their feet.  As a result, the Byzantine Empire cannibalizes itself.
Satan needs to keep Jerusalem in the minds of Christians as a substitute for learning Bible.  The idea of fighting against the infidel makes one feel holy.  So feeling holy, one will think himself holy and thus not think he needs to study God's Word.  That tactic worked so well on the Jews from 586 BC onward, well.. reprise it.  Constantly.  They didn't have TV in the old days, so it was harder to motivate focus on the Holy Land.  Of course, once Israel got politically established and technology developed enough, now you are inundated with focus on the Holy Land, and can take sides, every night at dinner.. while watching the nightly news coverage of the ongoing fight against the Jews, by Arabs.
'No matter what the denominational name given, the Rev17 harlot always acts the same way.  It began as a pipe dream, became a monolith, and will now slowly collapse under its own weight;  from it will come MANY Rev17 harlots, each one claiming to be more "in" with God than the next.  There will be MANY religious states, all of them fighting in the name of God and all of them wacko.  Welcome to modern history.
Technically, there would also be 50 years AFTER this, that final Gog and MaGog voting period.  The revolution occurs AFTER the 1000 years has ended, Rev 20:7.  So the 50-year voting period is presumed added.  What bothers me is that it doesn't 'tie' to any date in the past, but should.  So maybe I'm misaccounting this idea.  Will vet it more later.

' Of course, to make this 2nd Exodus (cute), BOM's 1 Nephi 4 tells you the 'Holy Spirit' ordered Nephi to murder and then dress up in the victim's clothes, and then the Holy Spirit lalew's in the victim's voice, in order to LIE to those knowing the victim, and make good this escape.  And no one believing in Smith's "Book of Mormon", notices this bald derision but instead hails it as Divine.   Text is ribald, like the Koran and all those fake Gospels of the 1st-2nd century. Mormon Church's founding date of April 6th (1830) is the original Hebrew date of Christ's Resurrection (solar calendar that year).  Clearly they couldn't know that, but Satan & Co. must compete/mimic whatever God does.  They do it with all 'holy books';  Koran and Book of Mormon are the wittiest of the collection.
Work of S.P. Tregelles and C. von Tischendorf, inter alia, was to intensively collect, collate, and correct/compare all the original-language Bible manuscripts ("MSS" in scholar lingo) they could find.  And they found, much.  Very dramatic story, worthy of being a mini-series, this is the greatest thing in history since the Cross, and the completion of Canon.  You couldn't even read Bible with confidence, apart from these finds.
'Later DNA testing on Neanderthals (German spelling) showed they aren't related to mankind.  PBS video on this topic, I can't remember the title.  Everyone seems to keep forgetting that Adam and progeny are never depicted as hunter-gatherer, so the Bible doesn't even have anything to do with this topic.  So again, the brouhaha comes from people reading INTO Bible, what's not there.
It's truly amazing how the anti-semitic accusations and machinations you see recorded in Exo 1, Ezra 1-5, Nehemiah and Esther, play out in history.  Just change the names:  the arguments are always the same.  Worse, the same arguments are used by Jews against Jesus, and later (by Christian Jews) against Paul:  see the Gospels and then Acts 15-22.  Then just turn on your TV and listen carefully to any broadcast on the Middle East conflict, at any time between 1948 and today.  Same stuff!  Journalists have invented a name for it:  "turnspeak" -- turn your own evil into THEIRs by accusing THEM of what you are.  Psychologists call this "projection".  Yeah, good propaganda, too.
Darwin's work doesn't really claim man transmutes, and instead counters the stupidity of the day that creatures (including man) are immutable once created.  Bible never says that they are.  Proper biological term is adaptation, which is what Darwin was reporting.  Adaptation is indeed in the Bible, "after their kinds" clause.  But amoebas can't become animals, etc.  Sheer genetics proves that.  Darwin isn't claiming that they can, isn't going beyond the bounds of genetics.  But never mind, people just make up their own ideas and then say they are Darwinian.  I love it when people don't do their homework.  Evolution is a misnomer and a tautological idea which has very little in common with what Darwin wrote.

Satan couldn't make the Arabs wipe out Christians or Jews enough, so he switches to the friendship dialectic, simultaneously using our rightful love of Jews to generate a herding -- reinforced by all those pogroms which so characterise the 20th century.  We Christians should defend Israel and Jews with our very lives, wherever they are;  but Israel shouldn't BE there.  It's a TRAP, see Matt24, Dan9:26, Rev11:1ff's sarcasm.  This is Satan's FAKE Temple plan so he can herd the Jews for the future Armaggedon.  Bible says only GOD will shub them at the 2nd Advent, Ezekiel 39ff, Isa61ff.  Satan used the pogroms in Arab lands and Europe, to FORCE this trapping.
God has warned Israel to SEEK HIM, not human assistance, since the Exodus plagues on those who wanted to go back to Egypt.  Israel never learns that lesson.  So in 722BC, then 607, 597, 586, 538, 521, 167, 63, 37, then 30 and 64AD, God had to clean house using human agents: to repeat the lesson, Satan CONTROLS the world (see Matt4).  So STOP relying on the world.  We Christians are just as stupid, politicking instead of PRAYING, 2Chron 7:14!
