Does Tabernacles conclude the 70th Week?

November 10, 2010

Now that another date has passed, the associated day counts of 2,520 days until the Day of Atonement have been compromised. Daniel’s 70th Week cannot fit with the time remaining. So is the 2010-2017 timeline all over? Is it time to throw in the towel?

There has been one suggestion made by a few to make a final tweak to the timeline. What if Daniel’s 70th Week ends on the Feast of Tabernacles that will be celebrated throughout the Millennium (Zech 14)? Counting the 2,520 days back from this date would find their start on November 11, 2010 at sundown. The 1,260 day portions would divide at April 24/25, 2014. This would move the Abomination of Desolation off of the holiday of Firstfruits/Easter by five days. In essence everything shifts five days from the original theory.

Shifting things by five days does affect the book’s timelines, but without a five day adjustment, the entire theory is lost. So to save some of the big ideas that look to 70 years from Israel’s establishment or 100 years from world war, this is about the only fix that is not a major overhaul.

Also there is the count of 1335 days to not forget. Shifting this day by five days will still keep it within the Hanukkah period placing it on day seven–December 19, 2017 .

Other interesting items that have been found about the end of November 11, 2010:

70 days from the 7.0 Christchurch earthquake.

7 weeks from the beginning of Tabernacles.

It may also be interesting that taking the 40 days from Trumpets 2010 to Heshvan 10 and multiplying by the golden proportion of 0.618 will result in 24.72 days. November 11 marks 24 days where November 12 marks 25 days. November 12, 2010 would be day one in the 2,520 day countdown to the first day of Tabernacles 2017. The golden proportion was also found in the middle of the 1,440 days between Heshvan 17, 2006 and Heshvan 10, 2010 at May 10, 2008 when Israel celebrated their 60th anniversary and when world population crossed the 6,666,666,666 threshold.

Other than this, time is quickly running out on last efforts. Of course, this is based off the observed calendar. The sighted lunar calendar pushes dates back by 0-2 days. But regardless, when Thanksgiving rolls around and if nothing has occurred, then it is time to go back to the drawing board since it will be impossible to squeeze in 2,520 days by a Fall Festival day in 2017.
