Testing for meter first involves the MEANING of the TOTAL. Here, that total is 847. Task is to prove it valid. If valid, then most of the metering you've done, will be right, and any errors have offsets by the time you get to the bottom.
You prove the total valid in terms of WRITER INTENT. Task is to prove the writer INTENDED the total you have.
So that's what this post will attempt to show.
Intent has to be DOCTRINAL, meaning it interfaces with the text and all prior Divine writ. Since this is per Chap22 the last book of the Bible, it's a heady thing to tie to all prior Rev plus prior authors' stuff, in one chapter's meter count. Would require Divine Inspiration, huh.
So our putative total of 847
, pretending it is intended, what would it mean?
Well, in Genesis 1
, the meter is 1050. Basic Civilization unit, cleverly employed as a pun on when Moses writes, 1050 years after the Flood. Whole chapter is a dateline per verse (maybe also per clause, but I didn't test that much).
, written same year as Gen1, maps out how many 1050s there are, by counting only the 70's sandwiched in between: five of them, with the last one being 56 not 70, cuz it might not happen due to Temple Down. So that extra 14 is in the first section as 63 then 84, the two datelines. Upshot tho: originally, pre-Church, the Plan of Time was 1050x5, or 5250 years. Christ was then supposed to be born 4106 from Adam's fall, 2000 years after Jacob, then die 40 years later, leaving 54 years to 4200 from Adam's fall, at which point the final (Millennial, Ps90:4) 1050 would begin, and the 5250 would complete. After that? Eternity.
It's 57, thus: Abraham
matured 53.5 years prior to the elapse of the promised 2100 for the Gentiles. So they are owed that time. Plus, due to reasons I can't yet prove fully, another 3.5 years is owed as Jacob's trouble
(not sure what that refs in Jacob's time). So now, 57. But that extra 3.5 gets wiped out during Jacob's time, so back to 54. I haven't yet accounted for what offset the credit, but right now that doesn't matter cuz it ends up resurfacing (q.v.)
You find all this out in Psalm 90
's meter structure, and for confirmation of that intent, Isaiah 53
plots a 1078-year calendar of 1st David's birth to last David's death, with one big revision: Christ's birth has to shorten up 3 years owing to 1Kings 6:1 Solomon starting the Temple the 4th year after David died, rather than immediately after David died.
So it's still a total of 57 from when Christ is SCHEDULED to die, but starts 3 years earlier to balance to that very SCHEDULE (maybe accounted as 2.5, not sure yet).
So He's born in 4103, not 4106. So the 3-year problem theologians keep having with the Bible's dates and Christ's birth are valid, for this reason.
The problem is echoed in the Roman calendar (by mistake), with Varro's errant 753 ab urbe condita
'age of Rome' date for the year Christ was born (which they were then debating, not knowing of Christ) versus Livy's 750 (google on this or just go to livius.org). Augustus liked Varro. So now that same error is in all our dates, which 'just happens' (yeah right) to now coincide with the Bible's change in SCHEDULE.
For that's what we're looking at, a SCHEDULE. Be it in Genesis.. or, Revelation. SCHEDULE of Time doesn't mean it will happen ON Time.
So Moses presented the schedule: 4200+Mill of 1050, in Ps90
, which equidistantly and simultaneously would have 1050 left to Messiah's birth AFTER the 350 (syllables=years) of the SUM of Ps90 finished, which stood for the period of the Judges. Which Paul
confirms, in his accounting in Acts 13:20
or thereabouts. (Theologians independently also came up with that period, but I don't know how they did it.) So when Judges
ends, it's 1050 BC. When Saul starts. 40 years later, David
becomes king at age 30, so it's easy to know his birth was 1040, hence when Solomon
starts building the Temple in 1Kings 6:1, David woulda been 80 years old, so died age 77
(not 70, as scholars claim since they look at Josephus not Bible).
Now Christ can't be born ON TIME?? Deadline of time is now 1000 years after DAVID'S DEATH, which is THREE YEARS SHORT!!
Cuz the Day of the Lord can't end before the Last David is BORN!
So Isaiah 53
very deliberately tags the entire meter structure of Psalm 90
, to show the update. First 77 syllables, used in the genealogies of Matthew 1
(42) and Luke 3
(77) respectively, are David's life, confirmed by David himself writing at age 77 per his own dateline meter in 2Sam23
Here's a pair of short videos I did on that; use http://www.brainout.net/Isa53Map.pdf
to follow the revised chronology:
So we have Bible confirmation that Gen1 meter is deliberate, so too Psalm 90 and Isaiah 53, since other Bible writers use and build on, the same meter.
Isaiah 53, however, is only 462 syllables.
There are two off-books hiatuses in his prophetic meter, so he can sum to the actual historical time distance from First David's Birth to last David's death:
- 1st ellipsis is between Isaiah 52:15 (which Luke uses for his 77th son ties), and Isa53:1 (cuz in Hebrew, Isa53 started in 52:13). That ellipsis sum is 252.
- Second ellipsis is between Isaiah 53:10 and :11, to coincide with the prophesied end of the Book of Malachi which Matthew 1 tags to show he's the next book. That ellipsis, is 364.
- Sum is multi-entendre: Days Noah in Boat, years Enoch lived (not counting exit day/year, to seven it), PROPHESIED years 1st Temple WILL STAND (actual total, versus its 490 year allotment, HERE PROPHESIED BY ISAIAH, so Israel had 126 years' WARNING prior).
You need all that info to grasp Daniel 9's prayer meter, and God's metered reply (docs are better than the videos, so look in the vid descriptions)
..who tags Isaiah 53
to integrate it with the new direct revelation he got from God, since the Man of Time in Daniel 2, 7
, updates Isaiah 53, Ezekiel, etc
. So Daniel 9's prayer is also metered
.. at 750-8, standing for 750 sevens=5250 years - 56. He runs two timelines concurrently to show the jurdicial cause of Temple Down
due to Manasseh, keying to Isaiah 53
starting at Temple Down
Isaiah 53:4's end, syllable 203 (excluding 252 ellipsis, which is off-books for his own accounting and symmetry to Psalm 90 meters)
So Daniel repackages the meter to show a) yes, what Isaiah predicted is fulfilled, so now will God allow the Temple to be rebuilt since 49 years of the non-observed sabbaticals (Daniel 9's first dateline, means missed sabbaticals since Rehoboam, when you x7 to get total real years elapsed)
? Cuz b) another 7 years are due ON that 49, so how can THEY be paid? That's what Daniel is asking, as he knows his petition is about whether the WORLD can go on living.
Well, God's reply in Daniel 9:24-27 shows via Messiah's time EXTENDING the Time during HIS OWN LIFETIME, can those seven years play; so, God's metered reply to Daniel puts those extra seven years as.. TRIBULATION. So the first seven if and when paid, can trigger the second to be paid, so the time owed the Gentiles can be fulfilled as well as those extra sabbatical years now accruing on the elapsed 49.
Thus you have the SCHEDULE BALANCING precedence for Church: MESSIAH DYING EARLY means some kind of time extension can only happen IN HIM, so unless a NEW BODY is created IN HIM.. the world ends. So all the IN HIM verses in the NT are Rapture verses, for HIS BODY has to COMPLETE before Jewish Time can resume. So you see, the Rapture doctrine is all over the NT, but its keywords are missed, since the dummies used lunar years rather than solar, when accounting the 62 weeks in Daniel 9. Oh well.
So now you know why the only virgin apostle, Paul -- was obsessed with equating Church to pregnancy (Greek keyword Pleroma, means to fill up a ship or a woman with 'cargo') every chance he got (Gal 4:4, :19, Rom 8:10-19, etc, using musterion keyword as a synonym for pregnancy and mothering.. which preterists find a mystery since they are carnal). Christ is PREGNANT with us, so when we are DELIVERED, Jewish time can resume, theme of Hebrews, esp Hebrews 11:39-40 (which I now bet Luke or Mark wrote). So instead of the lame KJV 'fullness of times' you should translate it the PREGNANCY of times, about to deliver at ANY time, last trimester. Which, the prolifer will never understand, since they can't even read the sequence of Gen2:7. But I digress...
Complex, huh. But beautiful. As you can see, the biggest takeaway is that INTENT of BALANCING TIME is really evident in the meters.
So: if unlike the scholars you actually did the math right, the 1000th anniv of David's death is 37AD. That's the end of Isaiah 53, too. That's the end of Daniel 9:26, too, in EXPLICIT TEXT. But instead, the dippy Dispies go with The Coming Prince
by Sir Robert Anderson (a 19th century book, click here
).. using LUNAR YEARS versus the Bible's command to use SOLAR years in Exodus 12 (Passover is Israel's birthday, can't hit your birthday annually EXCEPT using SOLAR years). So they get the math wrong.
Thieme did that too, but always questionned the result he got (end of Daniel series). So then one must hallucinate the 476 as 483 (476 solar years equals 483 lunar), and then hallucinate that the 'king' rather than God did the decreeing for rebuilding Jerusalem, and then hallucinate that rebuilding only the walls is rebuilding the whole city.. so can shoehorn all these errors into a claim that Artaxerxes I the Persian king over Nehemiah, issued some decree
(of which there is none, Bible shows Nehemiah was merely granted permission, and the walls were rebuilt in 52 days, see Nehemiah 6:15). Thereby getting ALL the math of Daniel 9, WRONG.
Ooops. So for centuries, the theologians, whether preterist or Dispy, missed the obvious fact that Christ dies SEVEN YEARS EARLY. So that extra 7 on the 49, is NOT made up, so the Tribulation is EXTRA seven years, so the Temple must REMAIN the extra 40 years to balance Israel's time and yet Church must start when Christ dies or THERE WILL BE NO JUSTIFICATION FOR GRANTING TIME AT ALL.
So where are we? Christ thus actually dies 7 years early, at 4136 after Adam's Fall
, which you'd know if you did the begats.. it's not from creation, but his fall, when God started to NUMBER HIS DAYS, Genesis 3:22 (mimmenu
, clever way to say Adam is BORN SEPARATED from God due to his fall).
So what happens to the 5250 originally planned? Well, since any new time must be IN Christ, HE himself announced how that new time would play
, in Matt24-25
. When you crunch the math, you get the new total:
- 4136+1 since He's in that year (talking at its start, the vernal equinox, will die two weeks later, Matt26ff), plus
- 3213, the number of syllables=years in the deathbed prophecy He's giving there, equals
- 7350. Which, Talmud written much later, confirms (including His 40-year allotment for living), in Sanhedrin 97-99, which ties back to Psalm 90 and pan-Bible allotments of (google the italic phrases) 2000 years for the goyim, 2000 years for the Jews, and (newly, I bet due to Matt24-25), then Messiah comes (yep, He did!) then 2000 years belong to MESSIAH and then the Psalm 90:4 Millennium comes.
- So now the new total is? 7350.
Yeah, but that's in Talmud (garbled version, 2100 should be used not 2000). How to prove it in Bible, other than Matt24-25? Aha.
Well, first, Eph1
and Luke 21
both play to it, but for shorter periods of time, covering the fall of Rome-West. Mark 13
plays to it, covering the fall of Rome-East, since there will be TWO Romes, starting @Constantine.
Which future guy, all three chapters focus on, as did Matt24-25, by means of anaphora keywords which nest like Russian dolls, using Trinity meter (Paul) or sevening meter like Matt24-25 does (Luke 21 and Mark 13).
Which, John knows and plays to, in his text and meter. How do we know? Well, look:
So now, back to 847, Rev17 total meter. You'll notice, if your eyes haven't glazed over by now -- and they will, mine do too whenever I do this meter stuff -- you'll notice, that Daniel 9's total based on Psalm 90's total for Time, was 5250, expressed as 750 sevens, but 56 were still in doubt, the sevening version of 57 years (54+3.5 owing to Solomon's delay in building 1st Temple, no longer due to something in Jacob's life). So, Daniel's ending meter was 750-8=742.
John's 847, is much higher, but lookie: 1050 sevens=7350. So why 847 not 1050?
Aha. Let's break it down, too:
- 847x7=5929, which is 679 more than 5250,
- 1421=203x7, less than 7350,
- so subtract Millennium 1050, and
- 371 remains. Then subtract the 364 meter used in Rev1 to tag Paul's 'Year of Church' in Eph1:3-14, which equals also the hiatus in Isaiah 53 between verses 10 and 11, the number of years 1st Temple stood, so a parallelism is made to Church cuz Paul said 'two walls' in Ephesians 2.. and
- 7 remains. Which, is the Trib: just ending here in Rev17.
So John balances to the syllable counts in Matt24-25, Ephesians, and the first-1050
offshoots in Luke 21 for the West, and Mark13 in the East, all by means of that same 847
. Which helps the reader know yes, this text really is from God, who could craft the words so well to balance time from Genesis to Revelation?
See, Scripture is self-identifying. You don't need some scarlet beast of prelates puffing themselves up (and getting it all WRONG anyway) to tell you what books are God's Word.
So now you have the final word on when the Rapture happens: WHEN IT HAPPENS, methusaleh
. Can't predict when, as 'Year' is a metaphor, to parallel Noah's days in Das Boot
. His days were literal, that's why we use YEAR; his days were precedent FOR our year, namely the fact he was born on Passover but made to wait 57 days before entering the boat, details here
So all those date-setters can go do something else, for any day can be YOUR deathday anyhow. But the point is, GROW UP cuz you don't know the day or hour of your death, or of the Rapture, and it always CAN be TODAY, Hebrews 3. Bible takes a long time to learn, and learning it IS the GOOD that GOD makes of you, as HE likes hearing YOU learn
so YOUR thinking becomes LIKE CHRIST's.. since you are IN Him, so the goal is for HE to be in YOU as you are in HIM, Galatians 4:19, etc.
Now, Church is not learning Him. They learn religion. They learn Works. So FAKE CHURCH in Rev17 is a continual trend Satan deploys to SLOW DOWN TIME and hopefully, as he did with Israel, get Church to REJECT Christ before all the humans Christ paid to be IN Him.. are born/developed. To ABORT, is Satan's goal. So all the prolifers busy aborting the Word of God to drool over Caesar, are rejecting Christ. So Satan wins with them. And with his Fake Church as here shown in Rev17, he can keep his own jail sentence in the future.
