WHAT IS THE EXACT DATE OF OUR PLANET? THE ANSWER MAY SURPRISE YOU - NEW INFO

01/01/19

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

WHAT IS THE 'AGE OF THE EARTH' ACCORDING TO THE K.J.V. OF THE BIBLE OR THE SEPTUAGINT? WHICH IS MORE ACCURATE?

By S.N.Strutt (Newly added material - 01/01/19IMPORTANT NEW INFORMATION & FINAL CONCLUSIONS: A SURPRISE!


THE 'AGE OF THE EARTH' CHART below shows the AGE of the EARTH as 6150 years old. This is the Traditional Biblical chart, but is it completely accurate?

Please see the modern charts BELOW, which actually point out that the ‘430 years of the Jews 'being in Captivity’, actually started with God's Promise to Abraham & it was exactly 400  years from the time that Abraham's son called Ismael, of an Egyptian woman  afflicted his biological son Isaac. As one can see in the traditional AGE OF THE EARTH Timeframe Chart the ‘430 years of bondage of the Jews’ starts with Jacob going down to Egypt. If we take this into consideration and take the date of Jacob entering into Egypt and compare it to the time of Abraham there is a discrepancy of 215 years!

CONCLUSION: Today in 2018, It looks like the world is 5993 years old and not 6178 years old. Now that makes a lot of difference. It has been stated that the Age of the Earth is determined by the days of Creation. One day =1000 years.

YEAR       0 Creation = 4000 BC

YEAR 1000 DEATH OF ENOCH & BIRTH OF NOAH = 3000 B.C

YEAR 2000 ABRAHAM= 2000 B.C

YEAR 3000 KING DAVID = 1000 B.C

YEAR 4000 JESUS THE MESSIAH= YEAR 0 A.D

YEAR 5000 DARK AGES =1000 A.D

YEAR 6000 2ND COMING OF CHRIST-RAPTURE-WRATH OF GOD-MILLENIUM STARTS

YEAR 7000 END OF THE GOLDEN AGE- BATTLE OF GOG AND MAGOG - WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT- NEW HEAVEN NEW EARTH

 

EXPLAINING THE 430 YEARS OF CAPTIVITY OF ABRAHAM’S SEED. Were the Israelites actually over 400 years in captivity down in Egypt or were they only a much shorter time actually in Egypt itself. Look at the following chart which explains that the scriptures mention 430 years of Captivity in Egypt. It would appear that those 430 years of captivity actually started with Abraham, and not with Jacob and his sons in Egypt.

IN CONCLUSION: If the real date of the age of the earth is in fact 5993 years, then the last 7 years of World History could possibly soon be upon us. 2019 possibly will start the countdown to the LAST 7 YEARS until the exact year of 6000 years since the CREATION of the EARTH, assuming that I have done the maths correctly? As to whether 2019 also signifies something much greater, in possibly ushering in the LAST 7 YEARS of wolrd HISTORY, well only time will tell.

Whatever way one looks at it, we do live in very interesting and yet very dangerous times. All the Signs for the LAST 7 YEARS of the REIGN of TERROR of the ANTI-CHRIST'S ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT are already here, just waiting in the isles for the opportune exact moment to take over!!

According to Matthew 24: Signs in the form of  Earthquakes and volcanic activity, famines, pestilences, up-heaval of nations, wars and signs in the sky!

It is true that We DO NOT know when the 'LAST 7 YEARS of world History 'are to begin. We only know that God has predicted that THE 'LAST 7 YEARS'  will eventually happen, and that His Word cannot fail!

That could be turn out to be very important, as Bible prophecy predicts that at the beginning of the Last 7 years of World History, we will see the infamous ANTI-CHRIST (SATAN INCARNATE) come on the scene, and that he will ‘come in peaceably’ according to the Book of Daniel. The A.C. will offer to solve the world’s problems of wars, religious conflicts and the economic mess that we are in and will introduce a ‘7 Year Religious Pact’ centered in Jerusalem in Israel. The ANTI-CHRIST will eventually make Jerusalem his Capital.  This would mean that the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem must be built very soon, in order for the ANTI-CHRIST to both make Jerusalem his International Capital, and to use the Temple in Jerusalem, in the midst of the ‘7 Year Religious Pact’, to install the ‘Image of the Beast’, as in ‘Revelations 13’ fame.

REACTIONS FROM THE PUBLIC:

20/11/18

1) GBY! - Yep! Could very well be! Everything going on right now these days points towards “sooner rather than later”, in my opinion! Reason? - The huge confrontation of the only man: Donald Trump, of the only super-power who is taking on the NWO directly If he accomplishes what he has said he wants to, then “the usual suspects” have to take revenge. If he fails, then it’s “game over” anyway! Either way, Biblical Prophecy regarding “Mystery Babylon” MUST be fulfilled, and the NWO’s agenda is “sooner rather than later”, which of course will bring the AC to be revealed in power with his “order out of chaos” solution! The act of revenge by the AC, based in Europe, could be the destruction of Babylon The Great Whore because MR T could have won in his attempt to return the US to a Constitutional Republic, thus directly threatening the NWO’s grip on the world! OR The NWO starts WWIII as they originally had planned, for the purpose of destroying the US population as they are the only people powerful enough as a people to resist them, as patriots who own their own weapons and who have a belief in their freedom! In either case Europe will be persuaded that “it is necessary because the US poses a threat to the rest of the world and a resistance to the globalist movement” (take note of what Macron is saying lately). Personally I have never witnessed such a “distress of nations” on a scale as we see happening right now, with “the author of confusion”, “the father of lies”, going “over the top” with his mainstream media avalanche of major BS!  -David O'Shea -UK [ https://davesnewsblog.wordpress.com ]

Below is a link to a youtube video you may have already seen.  I put it up on my website (www.peopleofthekeys.com) in March of this year:
 
 
 
I am in agreement with the 215 years that need to be subtracted from the traditional time chart.
I have not double checked your math.
I am glad you posted your conclusion in a question format and that you were not too dogmatic.
I may use your chart on my web site. - Robert - U.S.A

4) 20/11/18 Thank you so much for this article! I like this information, and it would fit fantastically if  Jesus returns in 7 years!  He will use us as His powerful mouthpieces, no matter where we will be as long as we keep on believing and obeying each of us in our own situation!  PTL!!  GBY!!  Andre - South America -  http://endtime.theaudiokey.com/

The Hebrew scholars, who are the best at keeping the numbers and laws, consider we are in the year 5779 since Creation. - Rose Gagnon
 
MY REPLY: Dear Rose, Very good point.I am aware of the Jewish date 5779. The reason why the Jewish date is set at 5779 is because they didn't measure time according to the sun. The Jewish year is measured not in solar years but lunar years according to the cycles of the moon.
The Jewish year count dates from a traditional date for the creation of the world.The Jewish calendar is based both on solar and lunar cycles, with the lunar influence predominating. Each month in the Jewish calendar is 29 or 30 days long, which approximates the lunar month. Twelve of these lunar months total 354 days, about 11 days short of the solar year. This leads to a substantial drift from year to year of specific dates relative to the solar year (although all holidays occur on a fixed Jewish calendar date: SOURCE:http://www.sacred-texts.com/time/cal/jdate.htm).
 
5*) 21/11/18 From Rose: Yes, the Hebrews did not measure time according to the sun, but by the moon, since time immemorial. Enoch, Noah, Daniel and even the apostles, measured it the same way. Measuring time according to the sun, came way after. This is why, i tend to believe more in the ancient ways than the modern ones. But don't take it personally, every culture tends to measure things according to their own beliefs or calculations. It is all good.

(BUT SEE FINAL CONCLUSIONS ADDED 01/01/19 BELOW)
 
Since writing the above some of you had made me aware of the following VIDEO:
 
 
This VIDEO would appear to prove that the Masoretic Text on which the Old testament of the Bible is based had certain flaws as to the TIME-LINE from ARPHAXAD to NAHOR. If is is true, then the earth is some 650 years older than we have been told making the date today more like 5993 + 650 = 6643?

The Bible does warn us 'not to be carried away by Geneaologies':

1TI.1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith.

So what is the REAL DATE TODAY? 5993 or 6643 or something else?

Well,I guess that we will have to trust God about this one, as in the end it doesn't really matter what the exact date is, all that matters is that God's Word will be perfectly fulfilled in God's perfect time and all the events prophecied will come to pass including:

1) FINANCIAL CRASH & ORCHESTRATED CHAOS.

2) A NEW WORLD ORDER

3) The Rise of the Anti-christ to power

4) The LAST 7 YEAR covenant of the A.C

5) The Great Tribulation of 3 & a HALF YEARS duration  - half way through the LAST 7 years of the Anti-christ's Reign.

6) THE RAPTURE

7) MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB

8) THE WRATH OF GOD

9) BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON

10) THE MILLENIUM

11) SATAN released from the Bottomless Pit

12) Battle of Gog and Magog

13) Great White Throne Judgement

14) NEW HEAVEN & NEW EARTH

A SURPRISE CONCLUSION TO THIS MATTER!

TAKEN FROM APPENDIX XI OF MY AS YET UNPUBLISHED 4TH BOOK JASHER INSIGHTS (AVAILABLE IN 2019)

WHICH IS CORRECT?ARE WE LIVING IN OR AROUND THE YEAR 6000 ACCORDING TO THE KING JAMES BIBLE OR SOMEWHERE CLOSER TO THE YEAR 7000 ACCORDING TO THE MUCH OLDER SEPTUAGINT LXX VERSION OF THE OLD TESTAMENT?

AN ODD TWIST CONCERNING THE SEPTUAGINT LXX

BACKGROUND HISTORY: The 72 Jewish scholars were living in Alexandria in Egypt in around 300 B.C., when it was the Southern ¼th Segment of the Greek Empire, at the time that they translated the Septuagint from ancient Hebrew into Greek. The Pharaoh was apparently very proud of the amazing monolithic structures in Egypt including the pyramids and wanted to give Egypt the full credit for building them.

What if those who put together the SEPTUAGINT were asked to add 100 years to 6 of the Patriarchs from Arphaxad to Nahor? Why? In order to deliberately push back the TIME-LINE in favour of the Egyptians who claimed to have built the pyramids, but in fact it would seem that the pyramids were actually built by a super-race prior to the Great Flood from all the evidence.

Is it just possible that ‘The Pharaoh’ who was apparently financing the writing of the Septuagint, simply asked the 72 men to do him one favour and that was to add 100 years to six of the Patriarchs thus pushing back the annals of time itself, so that it would appear that the Pyramids had been built by the Egyptians around 5000 years ago, which was actually 500 years before the Great Flood in circa 4500 years ago, as mentioned in the K.J.V of the Bible.’

The above writing is the inspiration I received when I asked God: Who is right about the Longevity Chart?: The Masorectic Text used in the King James, or the much older Septuagint?

What I was inspired to receive shocked me that those who put the Septuagint together compromised because of the wishes of Pharaoh, and the fact that the 72 Jewish scholars were guests in his court.

Another strange difference in the Septuagint LXX is that it places an extra person called Cainan as the son of Arphaxad instead of Salah. In the Septuagint it states that Salah was the son of Cainan. However, in all the other translations ever found, Cainan is not mentioned? Why would the authors of the Septuagint seemingly deliberately add another person to the TIMELINE. One reason is it would push back the Time-line even further back: But what was the real motive? Why would 72 ‘Wise men’ ‘add in’ an extra person such as Cainan, apart from to please Pharaoh? What if they actually knew back then that other ‘wise men’ coming later in time would quickly recognise that something was ‘out of place’ in the translation of the text? Maybe the ‘wise men’ who put together the Septuagint LXX  were sending a message to future ‘illuminated wise men’. Also, why add a person called Cainan after the Great Flood to the Timeline, when there was another Cainan before the Great Flood who was fourth generation from Adam? Sounds a bit out of place to say the least!

Perhaps that is why some later translations altered the Septuagint’s version on the Longevity Chart? Amazingly, the following confirms the inspiration that I received some 3 months ago:

‘The oldest and most important translation of the Hebrew Old Testament (OT) is the Septuagint (LXX). It translated the Hebrew into Greek in the third century BC in Alexandria, Egypt. The Letter to Aristide tells the story how the Egyptian king Ptolemy II (285-247 BC) ordered his librarian, Demetrius to collect all the books of the world. Demetrius thought there should be a Greek translation of the Torah so 72 Jews, six from each tribe, were sent to translate the Torah into Greek which they did in 72 days (Charlesworth 1985, 7-34).

There are a number of differences in the LXX from the Masoretic Text (MT), most noticeable is the Book of Jeremiah where the LXX is a third shorter. The chronology in Genesis is also very different than the MT. (Finegan 1998, 195; Larsson 1983, 401-409). Larsson believes that the translators of the SEPTUAGINT LXX tried to harmonize the Biblical chronology with the Egyptian chronology of Manetho by adding 100 years to the patriarchs ages to push back the time of the flood before the first Egyptian dynasty because there is no record of a great flood. Early Christian chronologists emphasized the perfect agreement of Manetho with the LXX (Larsson, 403-4). It is interesting to see how they understood Genesis by the way they translated the text.’

FINAL CONCLUSION: It would appear that the K.J.Version of the Bible is after all more accurate when it comes to the generations born after the Great Flood. After all, God did predict that He would cut man’s years short to only 120 years and eventually that went down to 70. If these final conclusions are correct, then the earth is closer to 6000-years old than 7000. With what I hope is all the evidence in, you decide which you think is more likely to on this one?
