Post-Trib, Pre-Wrath Rapture
The sun shall be turned into
darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
The Post-Trib Pre-Wrath Rapture
How many Days are in a Year?
Well of course there are 365 days in a year, right? Nope, God doesn't go by our calendar, according to the Bible there are exactly 360 days in a year. This is a very important point to make if we are to understand end time events. Below are a couple examples of the 360 day Lunar year used in the Bible. If you are already familiar with this concept, skip this page and go on to the next.
In Genesis we see that the flood lasted for five months
Genesis 7:11 "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."
Genesis 7:24 "And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days."
Genesis 8:3,4 "And the waters returned from off the
earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth
day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat."
"Seventh Month on the seventh day" Minus "Second Month on the seventh day" equals Five Months, or
"an hundred and fifty days" Divided by 5 months Equals Thirth Days in a month, or
30 days per month * 12 months = 360 days in a year
Another example of this can be found in Revelation.
"And they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the
beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking
great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty
and two months."
"And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a
place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and
threescore days." Revelation 12:6
42 Months(or 3 and 1/2 years) * 30 Days = 1260 days
More examples of this can be found in the Bible, but theprevious ones are two of the most popular.
Esther 1:4 talks about the six month long feast of King Xerxes which lasted for 180 days.
Daniel 7:25 talks of the times and dividing of times being three and one half years or 1260 days.
