Joshua's Long Day - Skip to the Long Version

Joshua 10

12 "Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, sun stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, moon upon Ajalon.
13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down a whole day.
14 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel."

NASA states on their web site:
"According to the laws of physics, there are only two possible explanations for having the Sun stand still in the sky for a day: (1) the Earth would essentially have to stop spinning on its axis...for which there is no evidence. -or- (2) the Sun would have to start moving about in the solar system in a very specific way so that it appeared to us on our spinning Earth to be standing still. There is no evidence of this occurring either."

The Sun standing still at noon for Joshua for a day may have been produced by God moving the Sun around the Earth. The history and a working model are given here. God may have moved the sun around the earth with earth's rotation to make the sun stand still in the sky. Perhaps God moved the sun around the earth, to the other side of earth, and earth flowed forward into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then half an orbit later, and a year later, He moved the sun back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun leaving no evidence, no biological or geological trace, not even any net missing time. There is no other way.

From NASA's web site: "Most scientists draw a clear distinction between things that are taken on faith, and those that are testable and therefore falsifiable." God leaves no evidence so we have to have faith. Nevertheless, lest sincere people should be deceived, this web page gives evidence of faith.

NASA states "these events never occurred" regarding the Missing Day Story. However, the calculations given here are just like the Missing Day Story. Even if these calculations have been discovered here for the first time, they have as of now "occurred" and NASA's statement "There is no evidence of this occurring either." is outdated and false. NASA should really take the credit for the Missing Day Story.

The real credit goes to Jesus who has guided me in all truth, and to God who gives the victory.

There is lots of work to be done as a Christian for those who do not mind who takes the credit.

A Short Explanation

The "Missing Day" Story

Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been called myth in the Bible is true? Mr. Harold Hill, President of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore Maryland and a consultant in the space program, relates the following development:

I think one of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland. They were checking the position of the sun, moon, and planets out in space where they would be 100 years and 1000 years from now.. We have to know this so we won't send a satellite, up and have it bump into something later on during its orbits. We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite, and where the planets will be so the whole thing will not bog down..

They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries and it came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant that there was something wrong either with the information fed into it or with the results as compared to the standards. They called in the service department to check it out and they said what's wrong?

Well they found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time. They scratched their heads and tore their hair. There was no answer. Finally, a Christian man on the team said, You know, one time I was in Sunday school and they talked about the sun standing still. While they didn't believe him, they didn't have an answer either, so they said, Show us. He got a Bible and went back to the book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for any one with common sense.

There they found the Lord saying to Joshua, Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee. Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy and if darkness fell they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still! That's right---The sun stood still and the moon stayed---and hasted not to go down about a whole day!

The astronauts and scientists said, There is the missing day! They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it was close but not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes---not a whole day. They read the Bible and there it was about (approximately) a day.

These little words in the Bible are important, but they were still in trouble because if you cannot account for 40 minutes you'll still be in trouble 1000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits..

As the Christian employee thought about it, remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said the sun went backwards. The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but they got out the Book and read these words in 2 Kings: Hezekiah, on his death-bed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him that he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said Do you want the sun to go ahead 10 degrees? Hezekiah said, It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10 degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees. Isaiah spoke to the Lord and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees backward! Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes! Twenty three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in Second Kings make the missing day in the universe!

Isn't it amazing? Our God is rubbing their noses in His Truth! References:

The Missing Day Revealed

Harold Hill who wrote the Missing Day Story may have heard of NASA scientists discovering such a reverse orbit. He used Totten's book, published in 1890, instead. These may be the original NASA calculations in the Missing Day Story: If the sun moved 180° east to stand still in the sky for Joshua, that means the sun moved to the other side of the earth, which takes 12 hours, and earth flowed into a reverse orbit. However, this 12 hours may be the battle of Merom and king Wan's dream and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. King Wan's dream describes the sun in Virgo in Spring. The sun normally is in Virgo in August/September, 1240 BC. This is a detection of being 180° out, half a year out, not just a day out.

"But the vernal mansions go to the west and the autumnal ones to the east, reversing the previous directions of these two seasons, and in opposition to the prevailing notion of the Chinese that the spring belongs to the east, etc." The Chinese Classics III p.94

"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. A phoenix duck sang on mount K'e. In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang. Afterwards a male and female phoenix went about Wan's capital with a writing in their beaks, which said: 'The emperor of Yin has no principle, but oppresses and disorders the empire. The great decree is removed: Yin cannot enjoy it longer. The powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away. The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas.'"
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Part V the Dynasty of Chow p.143, The Chinese Classics.

Many discredit this record as a dream and not a documented astronomical observation. However, here the sun was setting in the west, and stood still just above and just below the western horizon for 12 hours while the sun moved back 180° from Virgo to Pisces. Thus king Wan would be weary and feel like he was dreaming. The first quarter moon stood still directly above and the sun on the western horizon, thus king Wan dreamt he was clothed in the sun and moon. In this 12 hours, king Wan would grew weary and sleep after a normal 12 hour day, only to wake and see the moon still overhead and the sun still in the west 12 more hours later. NASA replied they are not familiar with this text. In 1968 NASA could easily have followed planetary positions in the Chinese Classics.

They would immediately note the western sky in Scorpio meant the sun was in Virgo - in the first month of Spring! At sunset in China they would see the five planets gather directly above in Scorpio as God moved the planets out of the way of the sun in Virgo. Then the sun would stand still just below the western horizon for 12 hours as the sun passed 180° from Virgo to Pisces.

The falling/reverse zodiac in the Chinese Classics = earth in a reverse orbit, and this record of the sun in Virgo in Spring instead of in Pisces would be all NASA scientists would need in 1968 to uncover the Missing Day calculations I give here.

The simple model is the sun moving 180° with earth's rotation to stand in the sky for 12 hours. The earth in a revers orbit, rotation is against orbit, so the year must be sped up 48 hours or else there would be 367 days instead of 365 in the year. At the half orbit point, six months later, the sun and planets can move 180° back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. Then again the sun could stand still in the sky as the sun moved 180° for 12 hours, and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Then the next day the sun move back 180° for 12 hours and earth flow into the reverse orbit of the sun. Then one year after the first sun movement the sun move 180° again with earth's rotation to stand still in the sky for 12 hours and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

Then there would be 48 hours sped up time and 4 X 12 hours long days. 48 hours - 48 hours = no net time difference.

This is is only true if the sun had moved 180° and earth had flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. You can see Fang/Scorpio in the east when the sun is in September. For Spring to be in Scorpio, the sun must have moved 180°. This diagram is from 2300 BC from Chinese emperor Yao, in 1240 BC the eastern constellation at the Fall equinox was Virgo, a month later followed Scorpio.

Here you see the 28 mansions of the lunar zodiac. You see Fang/Scorpio by the E for east. However, the Chinese depicted spring in the east. The year progressing as the day the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. Normally the sun travels more and more toward the east through the year. Thus as earth orbits normally counter clockwise the sun moves from the west to the east through the zodiac. In a reverse orbit, the sun would travel more and more towards the west, like sunrise and sunset. Thus in a reverse clockwise orbit, the sun passes from the east to the west throughout the year. If there was a sun miracle in spring in 2300 BC the sun would be in this Fang/Scorpius in the east of this zodiac. Thus, spring would be in the east. Thus, the Chinese belief Spring is in the East.

If the sun moved 180° in spring, the sun would be to the east of the zodiac by Fang/Libra/Virgo. Spring can only be in the east of the zodiac in a reverse orbit.





The sun must be near Pisces in Spring, that is just a fact. Then one year earlier, the first sun miracle by Joshua may be the fallen walls of Jericho, perhaps Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC. Thus the sun moved 180° west to the other side of the earth and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. Thus the sun may have ascended suddenly in the east at 11 PM Friday night for an early attack on Jericho as the Bible states. This might be February 17, 1241 BC and half an orbit from then, 188 days is 11 PM Saturday, August 23, 1241 BC. This is about the same as the half orbit from our Spring equinox to our Fall equinox 186 days 10 hours. Earth is nearest the Sun on January 3, 2013, which is two weeks after the winter solstice.

February 15, 1240 BC is a quarter orbit, 91 days, from earth's nearest approach to the sun, November 15, 1240 BC. Over the past 7000 years earth's nearest approach of the sun has shifted from September to January. Thus the half orbit from 10 AM February 17, 1241 BC to 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC is the 187 days 12 hours. Then because the sun is on the other side of the earth this is 12 hours more, 188 days. Then the sun could move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. For there to be 365 days a reverse orbit year earth must speed up 48 hours in its orbit around the sun. Else there would be 367 days a year because rotation is against orbit.

The fall of Jericho was on Saturday. This must have been Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC. Then the sun must move again half an orbit later, also on Saturday because Joshua did not give the people a Sabbath day of rest. Thus the day of Joshua's conquest must have been on a Sabbath, probably August 24, 1241 BC. Then, the sun must return one year after the sun miracle at the fall of Jericho. From Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC to Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC. In the book of Enoch a 364 calendar is used of 52 weeks. Thus if there was a sun miracle on a Sabbath, the sun may return on year later also on a Sabbath. Perhaps the sun miracles of Joshua were noted thus. Or there were more sun miracles on the Sabbath, thus the 364 day calendar.

Exodus 23:29 "I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee."

There was full conquest in the first year, from the fall of Jericho, February 17, 1241 BC to the battle at Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC and Gideon, to the conquest of Merom and Hazor; Barak and Deborah, February 15, 1240 BC. See Joshua 6, 10, 11 and Judges 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Then we have about 24 hours of missing time in this half orbit unaccounted for. Earth must speed up 24 hours in half a year of 183 days. But this half orbit is 188 days (because the sun is on the other side of earth, so from 10 AM February 17, 1241 BC to 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC is 188 days.) of 365 days, 365.2422/188 X 48/4, correlating to 23 hours and 20 minutes missing time. This does not exactly match the 24 hours of the 48 hours to be applied to the first half orbit. We are still missing 40 minutes just like in the missing day story. The sun may only revolve 350° around the earth when Joshua asked God to make the sun stand still in the sky. Thus the elapsed time would match the missing time of that half orbit exactly.

Then when the sun returned February 15, 1240 BC, the sun must move 190° east to match the 24:40 minutes missing time of the second half reverse orbit. Thus we may have found the missing 10°. The sun must move 180° back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun February 15, 1240 BC. The sun must also move a further 10° back that day, 190°, to make up for the 40 minutes. The word "about" a whole day fits. The sun stood still in the sky for 23 hours and 20 minutes for Joshua. Then we may have found the missing 40 minutes in the missing day story.

The shortest half orbit, the next half orbit of 177 days, is also the more sped up half orbit, from 12PM August 25, 1241 BC to 12PM February 15, 1240 BC, less 12 hours because the sun is on the other side of the earth = 177 days 12 hours = 365.24/177.5 X 48 / 4 = 24 hours 42 minutes. Or 365 - 188 = 177. There are 363 24 hour long days in reverse orbit. Thus the 360° orbit would end two days earlier than 365 days. Rotation is against orbit, so the number of days and nights would still be 365 days. Nevertheless, from Saturday February 17, 1241 BC to Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC is 364 normal days because of leap year February 29. With long days = 48 hours the length of the year is 363 days + 2 days = 365 days in total length = no net missing time.

Then all three battles, Jericho, Joshua and Merom could all occur on Saturday. Thus Joshua did not give Israel rest on Saturdays of battle. And thus there remains a spiritual rest in Heaven. August 24, 1241 BC Joshua's long day and the sun revolved around the earth. The sun returned a day early, February 15, 1240 BC from February 17, 1241 BC. So 363/176.5 X 48 / 4 = 24.67 hours; .67 X 60 minutes = 40 minutes. 24:40 hours. Therefore there is 24:40 hours missing in the second half reverse orbit. The second half reverse orbit should have the missing 40 minutes, as you can see, it does. You can see the normal sped up autumn/winter orbit is 32 minutes shorter from the graphs below a +16 minutes and a -16 minutes in the equation of time of the normal sped up orbit.

Earth orbits faster when it is nearer the sun in winter. So if you can picture, this applied to the 24 hours sped up half orbit is also 32 minutes shorter = a 23 hours 30 minutes more sped up first half orbit and a 24 hours 30 minutes more sped up second half orbit = 48 hours. The half orbit is 186.5 days. Thus 188 days is 1.5 days longer. Thus at 8 minutes a day sped up reverse orbit (48 X 60)/365.24 = 8 minutes a day, this is 1.5 X 8 = 12 more minutes to the 32 minutes. 32 + 12 minutes is 44 minutes. Thus the sped up second half reverse orbit has 24 hours 40 minutes missing time and the first half reverse orbit has 23 hours 20 minutes missing time equaling the two extra days in a complete reverse orbit. Thus the reverse year is 365.24 days and not 367.24 days.

The sped up year is 363.24 days long in time, 365.24 days in sunrises. Even from Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC to Friday, February 14, 1240 BC is 363 days because of leap year February 29. If the sun returned on Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC the duration of the reverse orbits may be counted as 363 days because Saturday August 24, 1241 BC earth was not revolving around the sun, but the sun around the earth. Even that day the sun rose in the west and set in the east. Thus God must have moved the sun from inertia to 40 million miles an hour presently, then slowed the movement of the sun to 20 million miles an hour to stand still in the sky for Joshua for 24 hours and 360°. Then God must have hastened the sun from noon to set in the east at 40 million miles again and stop.

Then God must have moved the sun in the other direction 20 million miles an hour to suddenly rise in the east and ascend the sky. Earth must complete 360° around the sun in reverse in one year less two days because of the sped up orbit. Thus the reverse orbit started Saturday morning February 17, 1241 BC and the sun moved back Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC on king Wan's dream exactly two days short a year. Then there were two days worth, 48 hours, of longer days to give the normal 365.24 days of time of a normal year. Thus at the end of the reverse orbit year, noon, February 15, 1240 BC the day is extended 12 hours. Thus, the sun returns at midnight February 15, 1240 BC in time, after 12 hours of noon time. The longer days together with the shorter time orbit still equal 365 days.

Then the sun returned 365 days after it first moved at midnight February 16, 1241 BC. Thus there is no net missing time and solar eclipse paths are exactly as we would have predicted them to be back from the present to any time in the past.

However, the sun should return 365 days, exactly one year, later. Yao recorded the reverse zodiac in his first year was 366 days. This would make king Wan's dream Monday at sunset in China, February 17, 1240 BC. Then the sixth day of the moon, and the sixth day of the lunar zodiac in Scorpio, would match king Wan's dream much better. Thus the sun must have been in Virgo that February 17, 1240 BC, or February 15, 1240 BC, and the moon six lunar mansions away in Scorpio. The first lunar mansion in the 28 lunar mansion chart starts at Corvus/Virgo. Thus the six day moon was six days old and in the sixth day of the lunar zodiac.

"40 minutes had to be found because you are still in trouble 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits.." - This reference to 40 minutes in orbit is key to identifying the above model with the missing day story. Thus the Missing Day Story, though adapted to Totten's work, rings true. Totten's book on Joshua's long day was reprinted in 1968. The forty missing minutes is there. But there is no mention of the forty minutes being multiplied many times over in orbits. Harold Hill may have heard of NASA discovering the missing 24 hours, and a missing 40 minutes, like I have done and not understanding it, he used Totten's book instead.

"They were checking the position of the sun, moon, and planets out in space where they would be 100 years and 1000 years from now." - When the sun moved to the other side of the earth, the planets must move 180° also. They must revolve around the sun so to appear in the same position at the same time of night as they normally would have in their seasons. Then half a reverse orbit later the sun may move back 180° and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. The planets would move exactly 180° from where they were appearing in their seasons to appear in their normal position when the sun moved 180° back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. This exact mechanics could also tell the space scientists to look at the half orbit point and discover they were missing 24 hours in earth's sped up orbit at that point.

Only there would be some 40 minutes left over in missing time that had to be countered by a second half reverse orbit beginning right after the first half reverse orbit ended. After the sun and planets moved back exactly 180° one year later there would be no net missing time at all.

The most probable dates are the fall of Jericho, Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC and the battle of Merom Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC. From the Chinese reckoning Saturday evening February 15, 1240 BC could begin the sixth lunar day of the month.

Possibly the fall of Jericho was Saturday, March 16, 1241 BC. Joshua's long day Friday, September 20, 1241 BC, and the battle of Merom, Tuesday, March 18, 1240 BC. March 18, 1240 BC was day 60 of cycle 60. King Wan's dream was on lunar day 6. March 18, 1240 BC was both lunar day 6 and day 60 of cycle 60. Then the day 6 may have been of double coincidence of day 60 but not Saturday. Possibly this picture taken of Gibeon and the going down of Bethoron from Ramah September 16, 2010 would be the same sun seasonal position as at September 20, 1241 BC. This is because the autumnal equinox was October 1, 1241 BC Julian and September 21, 2010 Gregorian. Thus this 10 day difference means September 21, 1241 BC is about September 16, 2010 AD.

Nevertheless, all three events, the fall of Jericho, Joshua's long day and the battle of Merom may have occurred on Saturday, the Sabbath, one month earlier.

Hebrews 4:8 "For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his."

God's day of rest in Genesis was on the seventh day. Thus if Joshua did not give Israel rest, the battles of conquest should have occurred on Saturday, the day of rest.

Then the fall of Jericho Saturday February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day, the sixth lunar day of the eighth month, Saturday August 24, 1241 BC, the battle of Merom, the fourth lunar day of the first month, Saturday February 15, 1240 BC. February 15, 1240 BC appears as the fourth day moon. However, the Chinese counted the day from sunset. Thus the moon passed the sun late February 11 and the sixth day started sunset February 15, 1240 BC. The sun half an orbit before August 24, 1241 BC was in Virgo and the six day moon between Libra and Scorpio. This is the same position the sun and moon were in one year after the fall of Jericho when the sun moved back by moving with earth's rotation and standing still at noon 12 hours for the battle of Merom. Thus the sun move back 180° in those 12 hours February 15, 1240 BC on the six lunar day or sixth lunar zodiac position.

"While the beginning of a day is dawn, a five-planet conjunction occurring at dawn, with a new moon, and the start of spring would truly be the beginning of all cycles, he said. For calendar makers, such a moment would also be an ideal starting point for counting days, months, years and planetary periods."
http://manetheren.cl.msu.edu/~vanhoose/astro/0001.html

The sun returning one year after the fall of Jericho would see a six day moon, a five planet conjunction as the planets moved out of the way of the moving sun at sunset, in year 36 of cycle 60 and year 1 of king Wan.

"In his (Te-sin) 22nd year, in winter, he had great hunting along the Wei." "On the kea-tsze day, in the last month of Autumn, a red bird came to Fung..My ancestor, the recorder Ch'ow, divined once for Yu about hunting; and then he met with Kaou-yaou, - from an omen like that which has now occurred."

This sun miracle may have occurred on November 16, 1207 BC on day one of cycle 60. Or this may be day one of cycle 60 September 21, 1207 BC on day 17 of the lunar month. This may have been a prophesy of Jesus' birth in September 13, 7 BC also on day 17 of the lunar month. The ark of Noah rested on the mountains on the 17th day of the 7th month. The five planets were in conjunction. Only this was fall and not spring. Even king Wan's dream was spring but not a new moon. Thus the desire to find a grand epoch, a beginning of cycles. The beginning of cycles would also include the sun moving 180° in spring to Virgo and the sun passing from east to west through the year in the reverse orbit. Thus spring would be in the east.

There would be a lunar eclipse recorded in September 24, 1205 BC, in year 35 of king Wan. The sun would move from the first lunar zodiac in Virgo to the 14th lunar zodiac in Pisces. Thus the Chinese would be encouraged to look for a beginning epoch.

Perhaps encouraged by these miracles in the 13th century BC, that nearly match this epoch, their search continued till 1280 AD when they concluded such a magical event never did occur.

Then the children of Israel would pass through the river Jordan on dry land Sunday, March 3, 1241 BC and keep the Passover Friday, March 9, 1241 BC. Then Joshua's long day may have been the same date as Jesus' birth. Back 9 days from September 21, 1241 BC is the same tropical date September 12, 7 BC. Thus Joshua's conquest, August 24, 1241 BC in the beginning of the eighth month would also be about the same date as when Jesus was born.

King Wan's dream was on the sixth day of the first lunar month of spring. However, the sun was 180° away. So before the sun moved back the Chinese would need to keep track of the calendar because they would not be able to tell what season they were in by the position of the sun in the zodiac. If king Wan's dream was March 18, 1240 BC there must be an example of the Chinese beginning their year in March and not January/February. An example may be the sixth lunar month were in there was darkness in 591 BC September 7. September 1 began the sixth lunar month. The sixth day be September 7, 591 BC. The darkness and not an eclipse was on the seventh day of the sixth lunar month on day 40 of cycle 60. Then April 7, 591 BC began the first month of Spring and the darkness at the fall of Jerusalem was in the sixth month in China, day 40 of cycle 60, September 7, 591 BC as the Chinese recorded the "eclipse". However, there is the possibililty the sun returned one year later Sunday, September 7, 590 BC on the full moon that was the fall of Jerusalem. September 7, 590 BC was the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month. Jesus birthday may have been Sunday, September 13, 7 BC the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month. There may have been a sun miracle half an orbit back from September 7, 591, being the new moon, March 7, 591 BC.

Ezekiel 32:1 "And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,"

This first day of the 12th month may be the first day of the week, and allowing for the new moon not visible behind clouds till Sunday, March 2, 590 BC. Thus this 12th year be the destruction of Jerusalem. The first month would begin on the new moon March 7, 591 BC. Then a sun miracle half an orbit later, the "eclipse" of September 7, 591 BC.

Ezekiel 32:17 "It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,"

One year after September 7, 591 BC, is the 15th day of the month, September 7, 590 BC. The sun may have returned one year later, September 7, 590 BC. Thus the fall of Jerusalem may have been about September 7, 590 BC.

Ezekiel 30:20 "And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,"

The first month may be the civil calendar. Thus the solar eclipse in China, September 7, 591 BC, may have occurred in this eleventh year. Then the destruction of Jerusalem follow September 7, 590 BC.

Jeremiah 39:2 "And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up."

Ezekiel 33:21 "And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten."

This eleventh year and twelfth year must be the same. A sun miracle, Sunday, August 11, 591 BC on the ninth of Av and a sun miracle 177 days later, half an orbit later on the 5th of the tenth month, Sunday, February 2, 590 BC and the sun may return and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. Then the sun miracle of darkness September 7, 591 BC may be the sun revolving around earth at the speed of light for one hour at noon Israel time and at sunset China day 40 of cycle and the seventh day of the fifth month in Israel the same day.

If God moved the sun at the speed of light and moved with the sun, time would stop on the sun while continuing on earth. On other times the half hour of left over time of an half reverse orbit may be countered by the sun moving 180°. Thus the sun could appear dark in Israel while the sun revolved 180° around the earth from horizon to horizon. Because time would stop on the sun, the sun would appear dark. Rather than the almost one hour to complete 360° to counter two half reverse orbits.

Matthew 27:45 "Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

Isaiah 16:3 "Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth."

Amos 8:9 "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:"

This may have been in Azariah's 38th year of his life, in the 18th year of his reign, in 830 BC. Thus Azariah being 38, the same age as Jesus when he was crucified, the darkness being a type of Christ.

Perhaps king Wan's dream was on Tuesday, March 18, 1240 BC rather than February 16, 1240 BC. However, this battle of Merom could not occur on Saturday. Joshua did not give Israel rest should mean all three battles occurred on Saturday. Also, the lunar days are counted from Virgo day one of the 28 lunar signs. Then, the sun in Virgo in February 15, 1240 BC, and the moon in the sixth lunar mansion, Scorpio. Thus the six day moon in the first month of spring after sunset. Then, the sun stand still at the sunset position for 12 hours while earth rotates, and now on the other side of earth, earth would flow back into the regular direction of orbit.

The first lunar day of 28 is Jue in Virgo, Kang in Virgo, Di in Libra, Fang in Scorpio, Xin in Scorpio, and day 6 Wei in Scorpio.

The best way is to square PI. The area of a quadrant is A X B X PI / 4. For earth's current elliptical orbit: So the shortest distance to the sun is 147,000,000 Kilometres. The longest distance is 153,000,000 K. The distance at the equinox is 149,000,000 K. So 147 X 149 X 3.14159265 / 2 = 34405.151. 153 X 149 X 3.14159265 / 2 = 35809.443. 34405.151 + 35809.443 = 70214.594. 70214.594 / 34405.151 = 2.04081. 2.04081 X 48 / 2 = 24.50 hours = 24:30 hours. The same missing 30 minutes. 48 hours over 365.24 days = 7.9 minutes a day. Then add a day and a half to get to Joshua's Long Day = 1.5 X 8 minutes and we have the missing 40 minutes. 30 + 10 = 40.

The nearest, furthest and half orbit point are not quite the solstices and equinoxes. Thus the distances above match the dates February 17, 1241 BC, August 24, 1241 BC and February 15, 1240 BC. Even so, today the equinoxes match these dates in distances from the sun to what they were on these dates of sun miracles in 1240 BC. Thus, the summer half orbit of 186.5 days today match this first half orbit from the fall of Jericho. Then to add a day and a half give 188 days. "The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes". The long day was 23:20 hours in elapsed time matching the missing time in that half orbit. The long days must add up to 48 hours in both half orbits. Thus, the second half orbit must have 24:40 minutes in missing time to add up to 48 hours.

Thus the 10 degrees added up to 40 minutes and king Wan would see the sunset. the sun stay at sunset and first quarter moon directly overhead, and 12 hours later the sun rise 10 degrees above the western horizon. Thus king Wan dreamt he was clothed in the sun and the moon.

Possibly these dates may be put forward one month; the fall of Jericho, Saturday, March 16, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day, Friday, September 20, 1241 BC and king Wan's dream on the Chinese six day moon, Tuesday, March 18, 1240 BC. Then this picture taken noon September 16, 2010 would show the noon day light at the same time of year Joshua asked God to make the sun stand still. September 20, 1241 BC Julian is September 11, 2010 because the fall equinox in 1241 BC was October 1 Julian and not our September 22 in the Gregorian calendar we use from 1 AD that keeps the dates and seasons intact. Thus if Jesus was born September 12, 7 BC, the day the sun stood still for Joshua would be the same day Jesus, Joshua, was born.

However, the six day moon in king Wan's dream could not occur on Saturday March 15 the second day moon unless this was counted from the sixth lunar mansion Scorpio, but lunar day two.

Nevertheless, the lunar dates and Saturday Sabbaths work best with the fall of Jericho, Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC and the battle of Merom, Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC.

The fortieth year eleventh month when Moses died should have been the eleventh month November 26, 1242 BC from the first month 14th day, Friday, March 30, 1281 BC. Then Miriam, Aaron and Moses died on the first day of the week as well as the first day of the lunar month. Miriam died Sunday, the first day of the week, the first day of the first month, February 5, 1242 BC. Aaron died Sunday, the first day of the week, the first day of the fifth month, June 4, 1242 BC. Moses died, the first day of the week, the first day of the eleventh month, November 26, 1242 BC. Then Friday, January 26, 1241 BC was the first day of Nissan. Sunday, February 4, 1241 BC was the 10th day when Israel crossed Jordan.

Acts 7:23 "But when he was well-nigh forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel."

Thus Moses was about 39 years old being 1322 BC. This was about the same age as Jesus, 38 1/2 years old when he was crucified in 33 AD. Double 38 1/2 = 77 years. 50 year cycles from this date to 29 AD when Jesus began his ministry - no year 0.

Then the manna ceased to fall that Sunday February 4, 1241 BC. Thursday, February 8, 1241 BC was the Passover. Sunday, February 11, 1241 BC, Joshua circled Jericho once. Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua conquered Jericho. 188 days later, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC the sun stood still for Joshua. Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC was the battle of Merom and king Wan's dream. Then the lunar eclipse September 24, 1205 BC that was counted as in king Wan's 35th year was actually his 36th year, 35 and a half years had gone by. There may have been a sun miracle Friday, May 9, 1206 BC on the 13th day of the first lunar month of spring in king Wan's 35th year. The full moon, when a naturally occurring lunar eclipse can happen, was one day later on May 10, 1206 BC.

Thus the sun miracle both on lunar day 13 and day 13 of cycle 60, May 9, 1206 BC. The year may have been counted from the new moon April 25, 1206 BC. The Chinese usually counted the beginning of the year in spring. April 1, 1206 BC was the vernal equinox. The 13th day of the lunar month thus seemed a day early for a lunar eclipse and thus was interpreted as a sign by king Wan of his appointment of heaven.

The Keatze day, day one of cycle sixty, could have been a sun miracle to point to Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC. Thus a sun miracle on the 17th lunar day of the seventh Hebrew month, be on September 21, 1207 BC. The Chinese started their autumn in August and their calendar was lunar. Thus September could have been their last month of autumn. Then just like the sun miracle at the same time as the lunar eclipse in September 15, 5 BC when the sun moved back two years after Jesus' birth. Thus the difference of 2 days from September 21, 1207 BC to September 23, 1205 BC; from Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC, to the lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC. Also, the September 21 date in 1207 BC would equal a September 13 date in 7 BC because the autumn equinox in 1207 BC was October 1 and the autumn equinox in 7 BC was September 22.

Then Jesus' crucifixion be the 490th year from the wall of Jerusalem being complete in 458 BC, April 3, 33 AD. And also be from the cycle of 49 years from 1242 BC unbroken. Then Jesus' ministry from his reading in Luke 4 to begin the jubile in the 50th year on Yom Kippur, Friday, September 9, 29 AD, be three and a half years to Jesus' crucifixion, April 3, 33 AD.

Luke 4:25 "But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

Jesus quoted Isaiah 61 on Yom Kippur, the 10th day of the seventh Hebrew month = Friday, September 9, 29 AD, on the jubile year, 50th year. The 50th year from Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC to the fall of Jerusalem in 591 BC. Then 70 years of captivity to 521 BC. Then 50 year jubiles to September 9, 29 AD.

Some assume because Joseph was 30 when he appeared before Pharaoh that Jesus was 30 when he began his ministry. However, Joseph was 38 at the beginning of the seven years of famine, David 38 when he was made King of all Israel. Thus, Jesus' ministry from his 35th year to his 38th year April 3, 33 AD.

Thus Jesus' ministry was three and a half years. However, Jesus must have been born the 17th lunar day of the 7th month, in September 13, 7 BC. Many Chinese records of sun miracles occur on dates like 907 BC = 900 years before Jesus' birth. Likewise Jacob and his sons sojourned in Egypt in the 430th Egyptian sothis year 2307 BC = 2300 years before Jesus' birth. By almost all accounts Jesus must have been crucified April 3, 33 AD. This makes Jesus thirty five when he began his ministry and not thirty as was assumed in Luke's account. Thus Jesus was in his 30th decade, not begining his 30th year.

Counting from when Moses was 40; 1281 BC - 40 years = 1321 BC. Then counting 50 year cycles to the first year of Jesus' ministry in 29 AD. 27 X 50 = 1350 years. Then counting 49 year cycles from the death of Ramses II in 1291 BC to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD; 27 X 49 = 1323 years = 1291 BC + 33 AD. There is no zero BC.

The next passover is from John 2:13 spring 30 AD. Then a passover from John 5:1 in spring 31 AD. Then a passover from John 6:4 in spring 32 AD. The last passover from John 19 April 3, 33 AD.

"Now that our Saviour taught his preaching three years, is demonstrated both by other necessary reasonings, as out of the holy Gospels, and out of Josephus's writings, who was a wise man among the Hebrews, & etc." The Complete Works of Josephus, Dissertation 1, p.641

Josephus wrote there were records of sun miracles kept in the Temple.

Ezekiel 1:1 "Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
1:2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,"

Ezekiel 4:5 "For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.
4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year."

The thirtieth year of the 50 year jubile was this very year 611 BC. Back from 591 BC 11 years of Zedekiah, then back 11 years of Joiakim is 613 BC. Then back two more years from rounding and short reigns is 615 BC. Then Jehoiachim's fifth year was 611 BC which also was the thirtieth year of the count of the fiftieth jubile ending September 7, 591 BC. Then Jehoiachim was taken in 610 BC which was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar, because Nebuchadnezzar's nineteenth year was the captivity in 591 BC.

Back 390 years from this 30th year of the 50 year jubile from 1241 BC: 611 BC + 390 = 1001 BC when Solomon died and the kingdom was taken from Judah. Then 40 more years back to the building of the Temple in Jerusalem in 1041 BC. From Solomon's first year in 1044 BC is his 38th year in 1007 BC. Thus, the 38 years of Jesus' life and 1007 BC be 1000 years before Jesus' birth. 390 + 40 = 430. In he 430th Sothis year, 2307 BC, Jacob and his sons came down to Egypt to sojourn.

Genesis 11:17 "And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters."

Thus there is a pattern of 430 years in the Bible. Perhaps they were fulfilled with Jacob entering Egypt in the Egyptian Sothis year 430, 2307 BC, 2300 years before the birth of Christ in 7 BC.

There were three kings before Zedekiah with similar sounding names that seem to be incorrectly recorded in the Bible. Jehoiachin was taken in his eighth year of his life, not the eighth year of his reign and from 615 BC. Thus we see in his fifth year of captivity was 611 BC the 30th year counting towards the 50th jubile year in 591 BC.

- Then, September 7, 591 BC must be the captivity of Jerusalem, in the fifth month, seventh day, of the fiftieth jubile year.

Daniel 9:2 "In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Thus the month of the jubile - the end of the 50th year at Yom Kippur, was November 8, 591 BC, just two months after the captivity. Then the next jubile would start in the beginning of the 50th year, September 472 BC. Then the jubile, 50th year, would be from September 22 BC = the next jubile on August/September 29 AD because there is no year 0. Thus September 29 AD - September 30 AD should be the year of the Jubile. September 23 BC should begin the 49th year. 49 year cycles counted from year 49, 1242 BC come to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. Josephus gave the fallow year 49 from September 23 BC to September 22 BC. Then the jubile, the fiftieth year, from September 22 BC to September 21 BC. Thus Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 August/September 29 AD to begin the jubile.

The Koreans have a festival Chu Suk meaning big center from a book written in 32 AD by Kim Bu Sik. It is a festival of the night that lasts three days that falls about this August 15. The last quarter moon would be rising in China after sunset on Israel. This is a festival of the moon at night and this would be midnight in China. The moon would look blood red from China. The Chinese counted the days after the solstices and before the equinoxes. Also, August 15 cannot be mistaken because it is about the center of the Chinese year.

We use the same Gregorian calendar from 1 AD on. So the Chinese matched their calendar with ours. The date is exact. Perhaps there was a sun miracle, not August 16, 32 AD, but in 29 AD on the 13th Chinese lunar day = September 9, 29 AD day, not the 15th day, as recorded by this Kim Bu Sik. The Chinese lunar day is counted from when the moon passes by the sun. The Hebrew lunar day is counted from the moon's first visibility two days later. The 10th lunar day of the seventh Hebrew month would be Friday, September 9, 29 AD. This Friday, September 9 would be Yom Kippur when Jesus would speak from Isaiah 61 on the 50th year jubile. There could be both a long night/day followed by a bright short day. Thus in Isaiah 9 light is sprung up.

Isaiah 9:2 "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."

Matthew 4:16 "The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up."

Isaiah 9:2 "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."

In this 29 AD in China it was recorded "A guest star trespassed against YUZUO extremely closely." YUZUO is the royal constellation. This may indicate a sun miracle in September.
East Asian Archaeology, p.130.

Did Herod die in 4 BC?

The first year of Herod in Jerusalem:

"But as to the more bold and hardy men, they got together in bodies, and fell a robbing others after various manners, and these particularly plundered the places that were about the city, and this because there was no food left either for the horses or the men;"
Wars of the Jews, Ch 18 p. 449 The Complete Works of Josephus.

This was when Herod took Jerusalem. This was a fallow year so thus the lack of bread. So 7 years back from 23 BC is 30 BC, 7 years back from 30 BC is 37 BC. So this must be 37 BC when the ground was not to be sowed, thus the shortage of food later that year. Thus the 13th year counting from 36 BC may be 23 BC. A shortage of bread would bring this calamity:

Josephus "1. NOW on this very year, which was the thirteenth year of the reign of Herod, very great calamities came upon the country;"

These two fallow years must be the 49th and 50th years. From Herod's reign in Jerusalem from 35 BC, his 13th year be this year 49 = 23 BC and jubile year 50 = 22 BC. This from year one Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC, the fiftieth year was the year of the 70 year captivity in 591 BC, then 521 BC was year one, to 22 BC jubile to 29 AD jubile. Thus Herod's first year at the conquest of Jerusalem in 37 BC was a Sabbath fallow year and shortage of bread. This 23 BC was year 49, 14 years before a fallow year in 37 BC. There are two jubile cycles. One a 49 year cycle from 1241 BC and the other a 50 year cycle from 1241 BC of which is subtracted the 70 years of captivity from year 50 in 591 BC to begin again in 521 BC, 550 years, to Jesus' first year of ministry in September 9, 29, AD = the jubile.

"1. AND now Herod, in the eighteenth year of his reign, and after the acts already mentioned, undertook a very great work, that is, to build of himself the temple of God,"

The 18th year from 35 BC is 18 BC which is cycle year Sabbath year 49 from the year of Joshua's conquest, 1241 BC. So counting from 35 BC 18 years to the 49 year cycle is 18 BC. From the resuming of the building of the Temple in Darius' second year = 7 BC 490 years later is this 18 BC. Likewise, the year of Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD was year 49 from 1241 BC. Thus the year of Jesus' resurrection was a jublile year. The blood red moon just after the High Priest was slain must have been the reflection of a red dimmed sun during the sun miracle that night at the same time as the lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC. Similarly the sun was dimmed on Joshua's long day:Joshua 10:12 Sun stand still. That night the sun must have moved back 180° and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

If Jesus was crucified in April 7, 30 AD: Then counting from the 18th of Herod from 38 BC is 21 BC and 46 years later is 26 AD in Jesus' first year of ministry when he would be 31. Then Herod would have died in 4 BC, Jesus born in 7 BC and Jesus crucified April 7, 30 AD at 35 years of age. However, the cycles of 50 and 49 years from the beginning in Joshua's day do not then agree. Also the 15th year of Caesar that began John and Jesus' ministry must have been 29 AD because Caesar died August 19, 14 AD.

Luke 3:1 "Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness."

Tiberius was Roman Emperor from 14 AD to 37 AD. The fifteenth year would be in 29 AD. John's ministry began at the Passover in the spring of 29 AD when Jesus was baptized. Thus Jesus began his ministry six months later August/September, 29 AD.

Herod's reign was counted from 37 BC, 34 years to 4 BC by Josephus. Possibly at times his reign is counted from 35 BC. His death could be March 30, 4 BC. His first year was supposed to be 40 BC - 36 BC the 185 Olympiad. From 37 BC he actually reigned from Jerusalem. His son Philip reigned 37 years from 4 BC to 34 AD. Herod would hardly let his sons reign when he was still alive. Nevertheless, Jesus still appears to be born about Sunday, September 12, 7 BC, and crucified Friday, April 3, 33 AD. Also, there are many examples in scripture of Hebrew Kings living or reigning 38 years, the span of Jesus' life from September 12, 7 BC to April 3, 33 AD.

Luke 2:21 "And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;
23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel."

Simeon mentioned Jesus is a light to lighten the Gentiles. There may have been a sudden brilliant sunrise when Jesus was born. Then the sun would be on the other side of the earth. Then if Simeon knew that Arcturus that now appeared directly above at midnight in September was the star of the King of the Jews, he would know seven days later, on the eighth day, that Jesus would be brought into the temple and circumcised and be ready to greet him. Therefore Jesus may have been born on a Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. This was the day of the Sun, and probably there was a sun miracle that day that the wise men observed.

Matthew 2:2 "Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him."

In March Arcturus would appear in the west at sunset. Then by June Arcturus would appear directly above at sunset. By August Arcturus would appear in the east at sunset. Thus the wise men saw the star in the east and travelling east each night while earth was in the reverse orbit.

The following record in China depicts the astronomers using a jade sighting tube aimed straight up at the star appearing at sunset in the meridian of the night sky. Thus the wisemen who came to worship Jesus may have also had such a tool to measure where Arcturus passed over Bethlehem at midnight.

Chinese Emperor Yao's first year began in spring when the sun stood still for 10 days. Yao employed Yi to shoot at the sun 9 times, saving one sun, whereupon the sun moved again. They made Yao emperor.

Thereupon Yao determined to know the four seasons.

Yao commanded the second brother He to reside at Yu-e, in what was called the bright valley, and there respectfully to receive as a guest the rising sun, and to adjust and arrange the labours of spring.

"The day," he said "is of the medium length, and the star is Neaou; you may thus exactly determine midspring. He further commanded the third brother He to reside at Nan-keaou, and arrange the transformations of summer, and respectfully to observe the extreme limit of the shadow.

"The day," said he, "is at its longest, and the star is Ho; You may thus exactly determine midsummer.

He separately commanded the second brother Ho to reside at the west, in what was called the Dark Valley, and there respectfully to convoy the setting sun, and to adjust and arrange the completing labours of autumn. "The night," he said, "is of the medium length, and the star is Heu; you may thus exactly determine mid-autumn. The people begin to feel at ease; and birds and beasts have their coats in good condition."

April 1 was Pharaoh's birthday 107 days back from July 16. That is, in Sothis year 430, 430 / 4 = 107 days = the year and day, new years, Jacob and sons entered Egypt. New years backed up from July 16, 2737 BC 430 years to April 1, 2307 BC. 430 / 4 = 107 days = the day Jacob and his family entered Egypt. Thus the sun miracle should be eight years earlier, April 1, 2315 BC. In 2315 BC April 1 was 10 days before the spring equinox.

Picture a globe of earth. If you rotate the base 180° for a sun movement of 180° at winter or summer solstice to keep earth in the same season; you will see half of 26000 years of precession. Thus a date of 90 days from the autumn or vernal equinox produces 180° shift to keep earth in the same season. Therefore, 2 X the number of days from the equinoxes is the number of degrees to shift earth or sun. Thus April 1, 2300 BC was 10 days before the vernal equinox April 11, 2300 BC. 26000 / 360°: = 72 years. 10 days = 10° x 72 years X 2 = 1400 years more recent than 2300 BC = 1000 BC sky instead of a 2300 BC sky.

"But apart from this, we are prepared to affirm that the three of the men sent to the four borders of China could not have seen the stars culminating at nightfall, when the sun is in the first point of Cancer, for it must culminate at 6h. P.M., whereas the sun would not set in any part of China in midsummer much before 7h P.M., and the stars would not be visible for half an hour after sunset. This fact would stand equally in the way, at the equinoxes, of the observers' seeing their stars culminating, unless indeed, the time of observation was several centuries later than the date usually assigned to Yaouh (B.C. 2356 - 2355), so that the stars to be observed had ceased to be exactly in the solstitial colure. The astronomer who went to the north in winter is the only one who would have no difficulty of this kind."
The Chinese Classics, The Astronomy of the Ancient Chinese, p.92.

Einstein used the precession of Mercury to validate his theory of Relativity. Newton's law that light has mass predicts objects passing a massive object like the sun will be bent around the sun. The bending is only a few meters. However, the gravity of the sun slows the light photons considerably creating a lensing around the sun. Einstein's theory of relativity predicts the photons will be bent two times more than Newton's law. Thus if James Legge used Newton's laws to predict the precession of the equinoxes he would be out by half. Probably the precession of earth that takes 26000 years to complete was known by James Legge in 1860. Nevertheless, the stars named by Yao would not mark the four seasons till quite a bit more than the 700 years James Legge suggested.

April 1, 2315 BC was 10 days before the spring equinox in April 10, 2315 BC. 2 X 10 days = 20°. Thus, the four stars of Yao would mark the four seasons 1400 years more recent than in 2315 BC. Thus, this record of Yao cannot be explained away.

Nevertheless, April 1, 2315 BC was the full moon. The start of the second year of famine should be 8 years later, 7 years plus one year of famine. Thus, April 1, 2315 BC should start the seven years of plenty.

Thus it would be entirely impossible for the Chinese astronomers to name these four stars to mark the four seasons in 2300 BC unless the sun moved.

The famine stele, inscribed in 332 BC for Pharaoh Djosor, describes seven years of famine. It is possible this is the low Nile rather of Pharaoh Unas in 2308 BC. Then the second year of famine = the 430th Egyptian sothis year 2307 BC. Joseph was made governor over Egypt eight years earlier in 2315 BC.

Thus, James Legge, who wrote the Chinese Classics in 1860, knew immediately these stars of He and Ho could not tell the seasons in 2300 BC. Then Jacob came down into Egypt in the second year of famine, the 9th year = 7 years plenty - 1 year of famine to start the second year of famine, 2315 BC - 8 = 2307 BC.

Then as the precession of Mercury was solved by Einstein's equation, so also, the forward precession of earth recorded in the time of Yao is also solved by these sun movements.

The first year of Emperor Yao in the Chinese Classics was to be 150 years before Yu in 2168 BC = 2318 BC. Yao reigned 100 years to Shun. With 3 years of overlap with Shun, Yao's first year should be 2315 BC. Yao became emperor when the sun stood still for nine days in spring. To match with Genesis pharaoh's birthday when Joseph appeared before pharaoh was April 1. Thus the sun should stand still for nine days April 1, 2315 BC.

Ice cores from mount Kilimanjaro contained a dust layer from 2300 BC which matched the low Nile in the reign of Pharaoh Unas. = the seven years of famine in Egypt described in Genesis. If there be a full Sothis cycle of 1460 years at the end of the Egyptian Sothis cycle from 2741 BC to 1281 BC we are short 5 years. However, it is widely believed this sothis cycle ended one day earlier July 17, 1281 BC because Sirius appeared before the sun 4:15 AM one day earlier.

Then Abraham's father Terah died in year 205. This must be sothis year 205 from 2737 BC = 2532 BC. Then Abraham born in 2607 BC would be 75 years old when his father died in 2532 BC. Abraham born in 2607 BC, Isaac be born in 2507 BC, Jacob born when Isaac was 69, not 60, the character 9 being omitted, in 2438 BC, and Jacob enter Egypt when he was 130 years old in 2307 BC.

Abraham passed through Palestine in his 75th year in drought would come into Egypt when the three great pyramids of Giza were built. Khufu, dynasty IV, built the Great Pyramid. 2606 BC - 2583 BC. Should be 40 years more recent, 2566 BC - 2543 BC. Because pharaoh Unas must be 40 years more recent to be the pharaoh of the seven years of famine. Unas must have reigned about 20 years, not from 2367 BC, but from about 2327 BC to the second year of famine in 2307 BC. There is a stone drawing of starving foreigners coming to Pharaoh Unas for bread. This was a wide spread famine in the Mediterranean and matches the drought and fires described in the falling Sun of Phaethon.

Thus Abraham at 75 years old when he left Haran 2531 BC would have seen this pyramid just as it was completed. Thus the new copper cap stone would gleam in the sunlight.

"In Hwang-te's (Huangdi) 50th year (October 18, 2607 BC), in autumn, in the 7th month, on the day Kang-shin (57 of cycle 60), (17th day of the 7th month = Noah's ark rested, Genesis 8:4 = 2600 years before Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC) phoenixes, male and female arrived." October 18, 2607 BC was the autumn equinox. In Huangdi's 20th year, from the new moon at the beginning of the year, day one of cycle sixty, January 27, 2636 BC. The date the 17th lunar day of the 7th month may be a prophesy of Jesus born the 17th day of the 7th month, about September 13, 7 BC. Thus Abraham born 2300 years before Jesus to the day.

In Chuen-Heuh's 13th year he invented calendaric calculations probably because of a sun miracle in spring that year, on the 14th day = the Passover day. This date should be 2468 BC = 2500 years before Jesus was crucified in 33 AD. Isaac born in 2507 BC would be 39 years old. Jesus born in 7 BC would be almost 39 years old in 33 AD.

"A yellow dragon served as the omen for Chuen-heuh to become emperor" 13 years earlier, 2481 BC, 1200 years before the Exodus in 1281 BC.

This also was the pattern for emperor Wu's first year. Wu became emperor 12 years after his father Wan died. Thus Wu was king for 12 years before he became emperor. = 23rd year of cycle 60, 1174 BC.






See When was Jesus Born?

Jesus must have been crucified Friday, April 3, 33 AD

Luke 3:1 "Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
Luke 3:2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness."

The fifteenth year of Tiberius was in 29 AD because Augustus died August 19, 14 AD. Jesus was baptized of John in about March 29 AD. Jesus began his three and a half year ministry half a year later about his birthday in September 14, 29 AD to his crucifixion April 3, 33 AD.

John 2:20 "Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?"

Thus 46 years back from the Passover in 29 AD is 18 BC when the temple was rebuilt by Herod in his 18th year from 35 BC. The temple was continually being rebuilt to 70 AD.

Equation of Time

From Analemma.com:

AnalemmaCurve.gif

CombinedCharts.gif

In a half orbit of 186.6 days and 178.6 days: The difference in orbit speed is +8 minutes and -8 minutes. That adds up to 16 minutes in a 24 hour day. However, over 48 hours that adds up to 32 minutes. I believe the speed of earth is the factor. Because earth's reverse orbit is sped up 48 hours a year, earth's half orbit plus earth's next half orbit - a complete reverse orbit year - must add up to 48 hours less and still be 365 days and 5 hours. Because at the same speed and distance of earth's orbit in reverse there would be 367.24 days unless earth's reverse orbit is sped up two days, 48 hours, because rotation is against orbit in earth's reverse orbit. Then the first half orbit must be applied to 24 hours, half of the sped up 48 hours.

The speed of earth must speed up 32 minutes in the second half reverse orbit when earth is nearest the sun. Thus the first half orbit is 23:28 hours shorter and the second half orbit 24:32 hours shorter. Two 180° movements east of the sun, to begin and end a half reverse orbit, add up to 24 hours. Thus the first half orbit is missing 32 minutes in elapsed time. However, if one half orbit is 188 days, as it is from the fall of Jericho to Joshua's long day, the second half orbit may be 177 days ending about one year later, February 15, 1240 BC - the sixth day of the Chinese month from February 1 when the moon passed the sun, the first day, as in king Wan's dream. The missing time of the half reverse orbit from 365.24/188 X the 48 hours/4 = 23 hours 20 minutes.

Still missing 40 minutes just as in the Missing Day Story till the other half orbit is added.

The Fall of Jericho, Joshua and Gideon, Deborah and Barak and King Wan's Dream

Jericho may have fallen Saturday February 17, 1241 BC. The walls may have fallen as a result of an earthquake caused by the sun revolving around the earth for an early and sudden sunrise in the east when Joshua and Israel rose up early that seventh day. Then Joshua's long day 188 days later, - from which the 50 year jubile was counted - Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC, and king Wan's dream Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC. All the calculations work the same way. Then king Wan's first year could begin February 15, 1240 BC, at the sun miracle on the sixth day of the moon. It was written king Wan ruled over two thirds of China before his son Wu became emperor. The lunar eclipse on his 35th year probably was day 13 of 60, September 23, 1205 BC.

His battle with Emperor Wending in Wending's 12th year, 1240 BC, the first year of king Wan, that day in which he had victory and which he described the sun miracle in detail in what is known as king Wan's Dream. Thus the sun miracle and his appointment of Heaven. Then after 35 years, rather his 36th year, he stated that lunar eclipse was untimely. It was on day 13 of cycle 60. A lunar eclipse is normally on lunar day 15. Only day 13 was out of the 60 day cycle. Sun miracles and eclipses were omens to the Chinese for a change in emperor. Thus this lunar eclipse record on day 13 probably was September 23, 1205 BC. If the sun moved back February 15, 1240 BC, it must have moved to the other side of earth one year earlier, February 17, 1241 BC.

Barak and Deborah fought on the same day as Joshua at the battle of Merom, February 15, 1240 BC. Thus the sun stood still at noon that day also for Joshua to get the victory.

Joshua 6:15 "And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times. "

Then we may have found the 40 minutes in the Missing Day Story. 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC may have been when Gideon attacked the Midianites at the beginning of the second watch that year, slew 120,000 men and travelled 60 miles before turning back in victory before sunrise. Not possible in the dark and not possible in just the few hours of the morning twilight. Gideon returned before the sun ascended. In August there are only five hours from the middle watch to sunrise. People can walk only about 20 miles a 12 hour day. Thus with 36 hours of day light and the sun setting in the east, Gideon could travel this 60 miles before the sun suddenly rose in the east two hours after it set in the east.

Joshua 10:26 "And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening.
Joshua 10:27 "And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day."

Thus the long day of Joshua was a type of the burial of Jesus, when a stone was rolled to the cave entrance. That day, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC, = the Saturday, April 4, 33 AD, the sun may have rose in the west and set in the east. There being darkness, so there being evening. After about three hours, the sun would suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east that resurrection Sunday morning, April 5, 33 AD. Then the sun may also suddenly and brilliantly rise in the morning about three hours after the sun set in the east, Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC.

John 9:4 "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work."

Sun Rose in the West

Joshua 10:9 "And Joshua came to them suddenly, all the night had he gone up from Gilgal."

The night ended at the second watch, 11 PM when the sun rose in the west on Gideon. An army can climb from Gilgal to Gibeon in the four hours to the sunrise in the west. The sun appeared to be headed to set in the east. Then Joshua asked God to stop the sun. The sun was already travelling fast around the earth. Joshua asked God to slow his movement of the sun so it would stop in the middle of the sky. Therefore the debate about how to slow a stopped sun is answered here. The sun should be as bright as normal when Joshua asked God to Damam - stop, dim, the sun. The sun standing still in the sky should be dimmed to leave the same daily coral layer. The first quarter moon would normally rise over the mountains in the east August 24, 1241 BC just before 1 PM.

However, the day retreating to the dawn may be the day and lunar day retreating from the August 23 moon to the August 24 moon. Thus the sun at the 12 PM position, noon position, and the moon just above the eastern horizon.

Then the sun "hasted not to go down a whole day" because the sun was moving west east and with the moon visible and setting in the west, the sun could not pass from the noon position till the 24 hour day had passed. Thus the sun was moving with earth's rotation and did not haste to set, that is, did not move faster to set in the east. Thus the sun would be in the middle of the sky in the 12 PM position when the moon stayed in the valley of Ajalon in the east for 24 hours.

The word for "in" the valley of Ajalon is the letter Bet. Bet means "from" Thus, the moon would have passed west to east "from" Ajalon in the west. It is hard to spot the six day moon rise in the eastern horizon at noon. Thus, the moon visible rising in the west to proceeding to set in the east, whereupon Joshua in the sight of all Israel asked God to make the noon day sun stand still and the six day moon stand still. Then the sun "hasted not to go down a whole day" because the sun was moving west east and with the moon visible and setting in the west, the sun could not pass from the noon position till the 24 hour day had passed.

The night after the sun had set in the east would have given the Amorites time to escape and regroup. Even the sudden dawn in the east would only give light for about 6 hours that next day.

The Amorites worshipped Baal, the Sun. Thus when Joshua in the audience of the Hebrews and fighting Amorites asked God to stop the sun in the sky and the sun did stop in the sky, the Amorites would be terrified and fear the God of Heaven. Not far from Ajalon is Bethshemesh meaning House of the Sun. Thus the Amorites were Sun worshipers. The Egyptians worshiped the Sun, Ra. Pharaoh Ramses was named after the sun. They too would be terrified when the sun did not rise for three days in the ninth plague of Exodus.

Joshua 10:13 "And the sunH8121 stood still,H1826 and the moonH3394 stayed,H5975 untilH5704 the peopleH1471 had avengedH5358 themselves upon their enemies.H341 Is notH3808 thisH1931 writtenH3789 inH5921 the bookH5612 of Jasher?H3477 So the sunH8121 stoodH5975 still in the midstH2677 of heaven,H8064 and hastedH213 notH3808 to go downH935 about a wholeH8549 day.H3117"

The word stood still = H8126 is damam meaning to dim or slow. The word stayed = H5975 is amad means to stand or stop. The word hasted = H213 is oots and means to hurry or withdraw. A "whole" day = H8549 is tamiym and means entire. All three appear to describe the sun rising in the west and while passing to the east Joshua asked God to slow the sun's movement east at noon to make it stand still in the sky for a complete, entire, day of 24 hours.

The word for the moon stayed "in" Ajalon is the letter "Bet". "Bet" means "from". The charater is the shape of a single room house. Thus the word means house. Thus anything leaving the house is "from". Thus the moon rising from the west, from Ajalon, ahead of the sun. At midnight the six day moon would be setting in the west. Then the six day moon rise in the west, "from" "Bet" over Ajalon, with the sun 90° behind. Thus Joshua could have seen the moon all that night and day, and by noon Joshua would see it nearly set in the east.

The six day moon rising in the east is hard to spot in the noon day sun. Thus Joshua would see the moon rise and the sun rise travelling east. Thus Joshua could point both to the sun and the moon when he asked God to make them "dim" that is slow down from their westward movement. The sun would be travelling 40 million miles per hour east, and thus slow to 20 million miles per hour to stand still in the sky.

The sun would stand still at noon both for Joshua as he chased the Amorites westward down Bethoron, and for Gideon as he chased the Midianites eastward down mount Tabor. The sun setting in the east. Thus the people would be looking east for the sun to rise. Then a few hours later, the sun would suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east, Sunday, August 26, 1241 BC. This sudden sunrise would be a type of Jesus' resurrection Sunday. Thus the resurrection Sunday at the end of life's day.

The second watch at which Gideon attacked would begin at midnight in August. The sun would suddenly rise in the east or west, probably in the west, about 11 PM at the beginning of the second watch. It is very unusual to fight a battle at night. There must have been more than moonlight. Thus the sun must have risen in the west shortly after the beginning of the second watch. Thus Gideon could chase the Midianites in the day light.

"139 BC June 11 China. "Emperor Wu of Han, 2nd year of the Jianyuan reign period, summer, 4th month, day wushen [45]. There was a bright light as if the sun appeared at night."
East Asian Archaeology, p.89.

"While Bhagavan Aditya [the sun] illumines the god's mountain, continuously going around, he heats only half the land up to Lokaloka Mountain, and he covers half [with darkness]. Not approving of this, Priyavrata, having accumulated super human power the worship of the Lord, [thought] 'I shall make night into day'. With a chariot built of light of the same speed, he went seven times around following the movement of the sun like a second sun."
Bhagavatam verse 5.1.30, Mysteries of the Sacred Universe, p.58

The moon must stay at its same apparent distance from the sun. So the sun may appear seven times brighter, and the moon as bright as the sun. The sun travelling with earth's rotation or moving ahead of earth's rotation, would have the moon following also.

In 85 BC: "In the consulship of Lucius Valerius and Gaius Matius a burning shield scattering sparks ran across the sky at sunset from west to east."
Pliny: Natural History Book II, Chapter XXXIV

In 133 BC: "Under the consulate of Africanus and Fabius, the sun was seen shining at midnight."
This has been suggested it was a comet that year. Nevertheless, the record states it was the sun.

Possibly the sun rose in the west just after sunset. Thus what they saw was not a second sun, but the sun moving 180°. This could also describe the sun standing still for 7 X 12 hours, revolving around the earth 7 X 180° with earth's rotation such as at the:

Matthew 28:1 In the end(G3796) of the Sabbath,G4521 as it began to dawnG2020 towardG1519 the firstG3391 day of the week,G4521 cameG2064 MaryG3137 MagdaleneG3094 andG2532 theG3588 otherG243 MaryG3137 to seeG2334 theG3588 sepulchre.G5028,

A Sabbath of seven Sabbaths the night Jesus was crucified. Seven Sabbaths were counted from the Sabbath of the Passover 50 days to Pentecost. Nevertheless, Yao's long day where the sun stood still on China for 9 X 12 hour days Saturday, March 31; Whereupon Joseph was made governor over all of Egypt. New years, April 1, 2315 BC was the full moon. The second year of famine would begin eight years later in 2307 BC. Thus the sun standing stil in China and not rising in Israel for 7 X 12 = 84 hours = the Sabbaton. March 15, 1281 BC was the new moon. Thus with the sun and moon together on the other side of earth, Egypt could be kept in total darkness.

Nevertheless, April 1, 2315 BC was eight years before the sojourn of Jacob into Egypt in 2307 BC. Thus Yao's long day of nine days should have been on the full moon of April 1, 2315 BC.

The 9 suns of Yao, the sun stood still in the sky for 9 days, or 9 X 12 hours, could also have occurred April 1, 2315 BC. Then half an orbit later October 2, 2315 BC the sun may move back, and forward again. Earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun, then back into a reverse orbit of the sun. October 2, 2315 BC was the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month. Thus there could have been a sun miracle on the same 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month in 2315 BC, as September 13, 7 BC, as when Jesus may have been born.

Joel 2:1 "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. "

Joel 2:10 "The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:"

And also when the sun stood still for about 10 X 12 hour days in China in emperor Kin's eighth year about 1731 BC. It could also describe the sun revolving 7 X 180° east, leaving a long night in Israel, long day in China, from sunset Friday, April 3, 33 AD to the sun rising in the west and setting in the east April 4, 33 AD. Then the sun may have risen suddenly in the east the resurrection Sunday after only a few hours of dark after the sun had set in the east.

The full moon would then rise in the west 180° from the sun, and rise about 45° or about three hours equalling the sun's set in the east for three hours. The moon at the 45° point in the western sky would suddenly become as bright as the sun, reflecting the light of the sun being seven times brighter, and would suddenly set in the west. The sun would suddenly become seven times brighter and rise in the east.

Job 9:7 "Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars."

Job 30:26 "When I looked for good, then evil came unto me: and when I waited for light, there came darkness.
30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
30:28 I went mourning without the sun: I stood up, and I cried in the congregation."

Thus the Friday night after Jesus was crucified may have lasted many hours longer and the sun may not have risen that day just as this day Job describes. The Chinese record days when it was dark and clear yet no stars or no Milky Way appeared - this in days when there was no light pollution. The Chinese have traditions of long days and long nights.

Psalm 74:15 "Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers.
16 The day is thine, the night is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter."

Job 38:12 "Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
38:13 That it might take hold of the ends (wings) of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?"

The ancient people of the Bible knew earth had wings and revolved around the sun. Joshua knew God was moving the sun from west to east the day he asked God to stop the sun moving across the sky from west to east. Thus the day may begin with the sun rising in the west or the east. Thus the sun may have risen brilliantly in the east on the Resurrection Sunday, April 5, 33 AD.

Amos 8:9 "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:"

The sun does not go down on an eclipse of the sun. The sun has six hours to go down from noon. For the sun to "go down" it must be moved suddenly.

Amos 1:1 "The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake."

This could not be king Uzziah, but king Azariah. Azariah must have begun his reign in 840 BC. 838 BC was the second year of king Azariah. This 13th year of King Le would be this 838 BC. A sun omen would be a cause for an epoch.

"In his 13th year, the king was in Che; and Ho, baron of Kung, administered the imperial duties."
Note: This is a sure epoch, acknowledged by all Chinese chronologists.."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.154

There may have been a sun miracle when emperor Heaou came to the throne in 868 BC = 900 years before Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD. 868 + 32 = 900.

2 Kings 14:23 "In the fifteenth year of Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel began to reign in Samaria, and reigned forty and one years."

2 Kings 15:1 "In the twenty and seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel began Azariah son of Amaziah king of Judah to reign."

The 38th year of Azariah from his reign in 841 BC = 802 BC. Jeroboam did not live into the reign of Uzziah. The 38th year = the age of Jesus when he was crucified.

Jeroboam + 14 years of Amaziah, + 38 years of Azariah = 52 years, not 41 years. Azariah 38 years, Jeroboam 52 years, Uzziah 52 years.

Thus Jeroboam reigned 14 years of Amaziah and 38 years of Azariah to 802 BC. This year, 838 BC, was emperor Le's 14th year when:

830 BC = Note: This is styled the period of Kung-ho. Notes: "The drought had continued so long; that all huts were burnt up. When king Fun died, they consulted by the tortoise-shell the spirit of the sun, and were answered that Le had been done to death by some monstrous thing. When dukes Chow and Shaou had raised his oldest son Tsing to the throne, Ho of Kung returned to his state. He was the man of the greatest virtue."

"In his 22nd year, there was a great drought; and duke Yew of Ch'in died." = 830 BC when Azariah was 38 years old, the age of Jesus when he was crucified. This then should be the 38th year of Azariah's life rather than his reign. A sun miracle was often followed by a drought, because the weather systems on earth were affected by the sun moving around the earth.

The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books. p.154

Thus the earthquake and sun miracle of Amos may have occurred about 838 BC in Azariah's second year. 838 BC was about 400 years, and thus a 50 year jubile, after 1241 BC.

Isaiah was the son of Amoz. Amos must have lived in the time of Jeroboam before 800 BC. Then there is the possibility Isaiah being the next generation was the son of Amos the prophet.

Psalm 19:4 "Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof."

We know the sun appears to move as earth rotates. However, this psalm is describing a sun miracle as do these other Bible verses as well:

Judges 5:31 "So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might."

Malachi 4:2 "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall."

Matthew 28:1 "In the end(G3796) of the Sabbath,G4521 as it began to dawnG2020 towardG1519 the firstG3391 day of the week,G4521 cameG2064 MaryG3137 MagdaleneG3094 andG2532 theG3588 otherG243 MaryG3137 to seeG2334 theG3588 sepulchre.G5028"

end(G3796 means backwardness. Sabbath,G4521 means a Sabbath of seven Sabbaths. Perhaps that Sabbath the sun rose in the west and set in the east.

Perhaps the sun did come out at night:

"the three Miao tribes were in great disorder and Heaven decreed their destruction. The sun came out at night and for three days it rained blood. A dragon appeared in the ancestral temple and dogs howled in the market place..."

In Shun's 32nd year, he commanded the prince of Hea to take the superintendence of the people, who thereupon visited the mountains of the four quarters. In his 33rd year, in the spring, in the first month, the prince of Hea, Yu, received the appointment to be successor, in the temple of the spiritual ancestor; and restored the division of the empire into nine provinces. In his 35th year Shun commanded the prince of Hea, Yu, to lead a punitive expedition against the Yew-maeou. The prince of Yew-maeou came and did homage.
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.116

33 years from Shun's first year in 2216 BC was this sun miracle about 2183 BC in the co-reign of Yu and Shun. The first year of Shun was in 2167 BC. This event in China may be 2200 years before Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD, in this first month of spring. . The dragon which the Chinese say was brighter than the sun also appeared.

"For the sky to turn dark at noon and shine bright at night"
Huai Nan Tzu 5a.7

This could describe a solar eclipse and a full moon. However, this line may also describe sun miracles.

Psalm 139:12 "Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee."

Thus by asking God to make both the sun stand still and the moon stay on the eastern horizon in the valley of Ajalon, Joshua was asking God that the sun not move from the noon position to set in the east because the sun and moon must move together. Thus the sun would be in the middle of the sky in the 12 PM position when the moon stayed in the valley of Ajalon in the east for 24 hours. The sun "hasted not to go down" means Joshua knew the sun was moving when it travelled west east. That is why Joshua knew what he was praying to God for, that the sun would dim/slow in its movement west east and stop in the middle of the sky.

He would know the sun does not normally move when it appears to travel east west. But when the sun travelled west east to make a 12 hour day the sun must move 40 million miles per hour. When it stopped in the middle of the sky that day it had been travelling 40 million miles an hour and slowed to 20 million miles per hour. 24 hours later it hasted again to set in the east doubling its speed from 20 million miles per hour to 40 million miles per hour. 6 hours + 24 hours + 6 hours = 36 hours day light that day. The night time travel of the sun from 11 PM Friday August 23, 1241 BC to sunrise in the west = 90° and the night time travel from sunset in the east = 90° adding to 180° Thus the total movement of the sun was 5 X 180° east and the sun on the other side of the earth.

Earth could flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun, only the sun moved immediately 180° west to suddenly rise in the west to the noon position and start another half reverse orbit of the sun to leave no net missing minutes.

Exodus 15:1 "Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously:H1342 H1342 the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea."

"triumphed gloriously:H1342 H1342" means to mount up. Perhaps the sun rose in the west, or rose suddenly in the east.

Sun Set in the East

Here you see the sunset on Joshua's long day. Joshua 10:27

Joshua 10:27 "And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day."





Ereb 6153 means sun set. This could equally mean sun set in the east. In the evening means between the evenings of sunset and dark. Bow 935 means the going down or setting of the sun. To come or to return. When the sun set in the east it returned to the east. This word appears as the origin of Greek words for the sun to bow down in the east before the early resurrection sunrise in the east. And also, the sun to bow down in the west on the two travelling to Emmaus with Jesus, when they said to Jesus "the day is far spent".

The sun could travel 45° east from the 11 PM position to the 8 PM position in August, then the sun travel 180° east to rise in the west to the noon position = 180° in six hours;, then stay at the noon position for 24 hours = 360°, then the sun set in the east 180° in six hours, then the sun move a further 45° east to the 3 AM position, the third hour of the night = a likeness to the resurrection morning and Gideon's attack at the second watch, the Roman watch over the tomb. Then that Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC the sun would stop and reverse course and travel 180° west from the 9 AM China position = 3 AM Israel position to the 3 PM Israel position.

Now we need to take care of the 40 minutes. We find a 40 minute difference between the length of the two half reverse orbits applied to the 48 hours sped up time because earth's orbit is elliptical. Now to find a reference to the beginning of the second half reverse orbit: In Judges 8:13 Gideon returned before the sun ascended, perhaps suddenly in the east at sevenfold brightness. Then earth could flow into a reverse orbit of the sun for the winter half reverse orbit to take care of the 40 minutes to February 15, 1240 BC.

Joshua may have been aware that the sun by moving west east was revolving around the earth that day. So when Joshua asked God to stop the sun he knew what he was talking about.

Joseph, Joshua's father 1088 years earlier in 2329 BC dreamed, and there was a sun miracle for Joseph when he was in Egypt. This may have been when the sun stood still in the sky for 10 days in China, whereupon Yao was made emperor over China and Joseph governor over Egypt in 2315 BC. Joshua would have been aware of his father's dream, and thus with his request to God to make the sun stand still, fulfilled this prophesy again in his lifetime.

Genesis 37:9 "And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me."

Matthew 5:45 "That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."

The sun must suddenly rise in the east, August 25, 1241 BC. Then there would be a second reverse orbit of 177.6 days right after the first covers the shortest half of earth's elliptical orbit. 365.24/177.5 X 48/4 = or 23:20 hours. 24:40 hours + 23:20 hours = 48 hours missing time. We have found the missing 40 minutes. 48 hours elapsed time countered by 48 hours missing time. The elapsed time: + 12 hours February 17, 1241 BC + (36 hours total day light 12 + 24, that August 24, 1241 BC) 60 hours in eastern movement of the sun - sun rise in the west stand still at noon for 24 hours and set in the east - the night of Friday August 23, 1241 BC - minus 12 hours Sunday August 25, 1241 BC sun move 180° west and + 12 hours February 15, 1240 BC the sun stand still at noon again.

The beginning of the second watch may be the time the sun rose in the west and stood still in the sky for 24 hours.

Then the sun set in the west and rose suddenly in the east in Judges 8:13 at sevenfold brightness like at Jesus' resurrection April 5, 33 AD.

Ephesians 5:14 "Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light."

At 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC the sun must travel 45° east to rise in the west at the 8 PM position then passing 180° in six hours to the noon position. Then the sun travelling 360° to stand still at noon for 24 hours. Then the sun travelling 180° to set in the east on Israel in six hours. Then the sun travelling 45° to the 9 AM position in China, 3 AM position in Israel. Earth temporarily flowing out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Then the sun reversing course, and suddenly and brilliantly travelling 180° west to the 3 PM position - or noon position because of a few hours to travel the 180°.

When the sun travelled east 45° and 180° then 360° and stood still in the sky then 180° and set in the east on Israel, then the sun move 45° further east to the 3 AM Israel position. And when the sun travelled west 180° perhaps the sun was brightened sevenfold.

Then when earth flowed out of the second reverse orbit February 15, 1240 BC, eclipse paths on earth's surface would be exactly where we would predict them to be backwards in time and daily coral lines would be exactly as we would expect them to be each day. Yes, you can find if the sun set on August 24, 1241 BC in the daily growth on a coral. However, if the sun were dimmed the layer may appear as any other daily layer. The sun may have been dimmed while it stood still in the sky to leave the same daily coral line, coral polyps lay down daily growth rings. "If a ring is added each day it could be that on a day with particularly bad weather no ring is added".

About a Whole Day

Joshua 10:13b "So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day."

The word for "about" is the letter Kaf and means "like the" or "about". The text reads "the sun stood still for nearly a full day" about 24 hours. Thus the word like a full day. - A day, Yom, may mean a range of light colors from sunrise to sunset. Thus the word "about" a day of 12 hours as there are 10 hours in winter sun light and 14 hours sun light in summer. However, a whole day includes the night and day and is one complete revolution of 24 hours rather than about 12 hours of sun light. Thus the sun stood still in the sky for like the full revolution of one full day of 24 hours. The first half orbit is short 40 minutes in missing time in the 24 hours sped up time for the first half orbit.

Then the 40 missing minutes may be applied to the 24 hours the sun stood still August 24, 1241 BC. Thus the term the sun stood still in the sky for "about" a whole day is very accurate. The sun stood still for 23:20 hours while the sun revolved around the earth 350°. The term "from the half of heaven" means earth was already in a reverse orbit from the sun moving 180° six months earlier. From the half of heaven means from the sun's position among the stars. From February 17, 1241 BC is half an orbit to August 24, 1241 BC when the sun must return and the night sky of the night of August 24, 1241 BC be 180° different than the night before as the sun was on the other side of the earth.

Then if you can picture the sun revolving around the earth 350° with earth's rotation to stand still at noon Israel time for 23:20 hours, about a full day.

John 11:9 "Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world."

The sun stood still "in the midst" of heaven is literally translated as "from the half" of heaven"





The red letter Bet, is thought to have originally meant "from" instead of "in" or "with". If the sun moved with earth's rotation 12 hours, that is half way, Israel would see stars from the other half of heaven that night. While demonstrating to my wife, in the summer of 1999, the sun moving 180° around the earth to stand still in the sky it occurred to me earth would continue moving but now in reverse. Ancient Greek and Chinese records describe earth in a reverse orbit. You will see the sun may have stood still in the sky for 12 hours as it moved 180° to the other side of earth. Only this was not Joshua's long day at Gibeon. The first day of the seventh month may have been when Joshua spoke the blessing and cursing of the Law on Mount Ebal, Sunday, July 21, 1241 BC.

Leviticus 23:24 "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
23:25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD."

Perhaps then the Israelites returned to Gilgal the next day.

Then the following month, the first lunar day of the eighth month, the Gibeonites met Joshua at Gilgal. Next, on the third day, of the week, Tuesday, of the lunar month, August 21, 1241 BC. Then a few days later the five kings of the Amorites attacked Gibeon, and Gibeon sent for Joshua, and Joshua ascended Friday night to come to the aid of Gibeon.

Joshua 9:16 "And it came to pass at the end of three days after they had made a league with them, that they heard that they were their neighbours, and that they dwelt among them."

The sun must return six months after Joshua's long day and be the extra day light Joshua needed at the battle of Merom and earth flowed out of a reverse orbit one year after the fall of Jericho. Likewise, the night after Joshua's long day the Israelites would see stars from the other half of heaven.

These little words in the Bible are important, the word about, the letter Kaf:

Luke 3:23 "And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age,"

Jesus was probably born the 17th of the seventh month, Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. Jesus began his public ministry with his birthday, the 17th of the seventh month, September 14, 29 AD. Jesus began to be 35 then. There is no year zero. Thus Jesus began to be about thirty years of age. The original of Luke may have been Hebrew. Then the letter Kaf = about. This word about is just like the record when the sun stood still for about a day less 40 minutes, about a whole day, Jesus began his ministry five years after he turned thirty, in the spring/summer when he was baptized. Thus Jesus' age in Luke would be in Jesus' 34th year before Jesus turned 35 years old, September 14, 29 AD. Jesus would be 34 years old before September 14, 29 AD.

2 Chronicles 20:31 "And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi."

2 Chronicles 15:19 "And there was no more war unto the five and thirtieth year of the reign of Asa."

Jesus began his ministry in September 29 AD when he was thirty-five.

Many dates in the Bible point to 40 and 39 and 38 years. Thus the purpose of the Bible to point to the life of Christ.

So Jesus would be 34 and a half at the Passover in Jerusalem in March 29 AD. The meaning may be Jesus was in his 30th decade when he was baptized.

Litterally, the decade of three = Strongs 5144 + Strongs 5140. Thus, 35 years old is halfway through the 30th decade. Thus 35 years is exactly the 30th decade. The Syriac and Persic versians leave out the word began because it is redundant. Jesus officially began his ministry at the beginning of the 50 year jubile, which should be - Friday, September 9, 29 AD when in Luke 4 he spoke from Isaiah 61.

You will see the probable was that the sun revolved to the other side of earth for a early sunrise for Joshua to conquer Jericho on the Sabbath, February 17, 1241 BC.

Descending Sun

See Hezekiah's Sign

Here we see how the sun stood still in the noon position for Joshua for "about" a full day of 24 hours. The missing time was 40 minutes less than 24 hours. Perhaps the sun revolved around the earth 350° standing still in the sky for 23:20 hours elapsed time. Then when the sun returned February 15, 1240 BC at noon Israel time, this was 6 PM China time for king Wan. Then the six day moon would be above and the sun had set and the stars of Fang/Scorpius came out with the planets. Then the sun stood still for 12 hours at the noon position on Israel at the battle of Merom, and at the twilight sunset position on China. Then the sun moved a further 10° east to make up for the 24:40 hours, 40 minutes missing time, in the second half reverse orbit.

Thus the sun moved 190° and ascended in the west to the sunset position. That is, the sun set in the west in China the night of Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC, then rose in the west 10° within 12 hours as the sun stood still at noon on Israel. Thus the sun moved 190° in 12 hours. Thus king Wan both saw the stars come out, then the sun come out. Thus he dreamt he was clothed in the sun and the moon.

The reference in The Missing Day Story to the sun's shadow descending backwards in 2 Kings 20:9-11 was the Hebrew word Mahaleh, for ascending as well. Perhaps the second reference to the sun setting in the east is equally applicable to Joshua's long day. The sun descended, then ascended. The sun ascended in Judges 8:13 when Gideon returned before the sun was up, before the sun ascended for a second half reverse orbit, to correct for this 40 minutes. Also, of note is the reference to the sun going backwards. That the sun ascended, perhaps it had descended. The sun might have gone backwards to rise/descend from the west at 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC on the Sabbath being the Hebrew Saturday, stood still at noon for 24 hours, then set in the east and then suddenly ascended August 25, 1241 BC in the east.

Perhaps the sun was brightened to sevenfold when it ascended in the east to the noon position, and dimmed when it stood still 24 hours, then set in the east. The sudden sunrise in the east Sunday August 25, 1241 BC was like the early sudden sunrise on Jesus' resurrection. Perhaps the sun rose in the west the night of August 23, 1241 BC finally setting in the east 36 hours later - a 36 hour long day. The sun would rise in the west to the meridian in China before suddenly and brilliantly moving west for a sudden sunset on China in the west and sunrise in the east on Israel. Then the moon would set in the east and day appear dim like it does on a heavy cloudy day. Then this day may be like the resurrection morning.

Joshua may have rightly thought that the sun now at noon would set in the east in six hours, then there would be three hours of darkness and the enemy get away. Then the sun would suddenly rise in the east for a short day of about six hours. Joshua needed victory that day, and 24 more hours of dayllight was what he really needed.

1 Samuel 9:26 "And they arose early: and it came to pass about the spring of the day, that Samuel called Saul to the top of the house, saying, Up, that I may send thee away. And Saul arose, and they went out both of them, he and Samuel, abroad.

"the spring of the day" was the word alah, meaning to ascend. Thus the sun may have ascended suddenly in the east after setting in the east for only a few hours. Thus the early morning. And thus the pattern of the resurrection Sunday.

That there was no day like it for Joshua that God hearkened to a man must have meant that it was almost blasphemy at other times to command the sun to stand still and God did not hearken to man at other times. However, Joshua may have intended to ask God to make the sun stand still when he urged the Israelites to go up at once and conquer the promised land soon after the Israelites left Egypt:

Numbers 14:9 "Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their shade is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not."

The word "their shade is departed from them" Joshua may have meant a sunrise and the sun standing still at noon for 24 hours while they got the victory. Like wise, the king of the Midianites Gideon slew, Zalmunna, means "shade taken away".

Even when Isaiah prayed the sun to retreat ten steps, it was God that commanded Isaiah to ask Hezekiah if the shadow should decline ten steps, retreat ten steps.

Judges 5:20 "They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera."

The stars in their courses may simply mean the sun moved to the other side of earth that day. Then that night Israel would see stars from the other half of heaven. The stars would be seen to set in the west and disappear in the west as earth orbited the sun in its normal counter clockwise orbit. In the reverse orbit before this the stars would appear more and more from the west each night. Thus "the stars in their courses fought against Sisera" was like a turnpike that did not let Sisera through.

Septuagint Judges 5:20 "The stars from heaven set themselves in array, they set themselves to fight with Sisara out of their paths."

This Greek verse may suggest the five planets were also seen to be out of place that night in Israel as they were seen in conjunction in Fang/Libra in China that night in king Wan's dream.

Judges 5:31 "So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might."

The reference to 2 Kings 20:9-11 may be correct. The sun must rise in the west and set in the east for Hezekiah. Thus 180° of sky are represented by 10 steps.

The book of Daniel speaks of hours of the day. Thus in this 703 BC, just 110 years before Daniel in 590 BC, the divisions of hours may have been known. Thus the ten steps in the upper dial of Ahaz could simply depict ten hours, almost 180°

Thus Hezekiah's sign was similar to the Sabbaton the disciples rested - the sabbaton was a Friday night of seven nights and the sun descended from the west to set in the east that Saturday. Perhaps that night was 36 hours longer. Perhaps the sun stood still that Saturday noon for 24 hours as it revolved around the earth 360° and was like Joshua's long day. Then that Saturday, day light, would last 36 hours. I do not know how long the day lasted Saturday, April 4, 33 AD. It could have been a long day, a 12 hour day, or a few hours of day light. Nevertheless, probably the sun rose in the west and set in the east that day. Then the sun set in the east, then rose in the east suddenly and brilliantly that resurrection Sunday morning.

The resurrection may be likened to the healing of the seven fold sun suddenly ascending from the east. Thus the shadow would both go backwards then forward 10 steps = 180 degrees. Thus Hezekiah may have been healed by a sevenfold sun at sunrise, after three days of darkness and the sun rising in the west and setting in the east, a sign of the resurrection. Thus Joshua's long day was very similar. There is the possibility Hezekiah's Sign was in 703 BC, probably with the same pattern of sun miracles as leading up to Jesus' resurrection. Thus the reference to II Kings 20 works.

Isaiah 30:26 "Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound."

"the light of seven days" may indicate a long night and day after Jesus was crucified. Some suggest Jesus was crucified on Thursday to give three days to Sunday. However, the three days may have been accomplished by moving the sun to equal 3 x 24 hours to Jesus' resurrection.

Herodotus, a Greek historian, wrote that the Egyptian priests reported:

"Thus the whole number of years [of early Egyptian history] is 341 pharaohs, in which entire space, they said, no god had ever appeared in a human form; nothing of this kind had happened either under the former or under the later Egyptian kings. The sun, however, had within this period of time, on four several occasions, moved from his wonted course, twice rising where he now sets, and twice setting where he now rises. Egypt was in no degree affected by these changes; the productions of the land, and of the river, remained the same; nor was there anything unusual in the diseases or the deaths."
The History of Herodotus, chapter 2

Herodotus also wrote that no reversal of sunrise occurs during the sothis cycle. This may indicate that the sun rose in the west and set in the east the year of the Exodus, Friday, March 30, 1281 BC at the end of the 1460 year sothis cycle. Then from 148 AD the end of the Sothis cycle was symbolized by the Phoenix on coins minted. The Sothis cycle really ended 1460 years in 180 AD. The 49 year jubile and the 50 year jubile from 1241 BC and the Egyptian sothis cycle coincided in 180 AD. Perhaps the date of this coin with the phoenix at the end of the Egyptian sothis cycle is actually this 180 BC. Perhaps there was a sun miracle in 180 AD. From Jesus' birth in 7 BC to 180 AD is 187 years. Methuselah lived 187 years.

The Jewish jubile 50 year cycle and 49 year cycle coincide with 179 BC and 180 BC: 29 AD + 50 + 50 + 50 = 179 AD. 33 AD + 49 + 49 + 49 = 180 AD. From the Exodus to Jesus' crucifixion 1281 BC - 33 AD = 1313 years = 13 X 101. From Abraham's birth in 2607 BC to Jesus' birth in 7 BC = 2607 - 7 = 2600; 2600 / 13 = 200. If pharaoh Merneptah died in 3.5, back 3 months from the end of the month June 30, and 5 days forward = 3.5; this would be April 3, 1281 BC. Jesus was crucified on April 3, 33 AD and rose from the dead April 5, 33 AD. Likewise the Sojourn in Egypt was 1026 years. 2 X 513 years. Methuselah lived to year 969 = 800 + 13 X 13.

The Armenian Sothis calendar may have ended 2010 AD. Thus 2010 - 1460 -1460 -1460 -1460 = 3830 BC. Year 600 of Noah's flood may have been 3230 BC. If Methuselah died the year of the flood at the end of 969 years, that would equal the Egyptian Sothis date 4198 BC. 3230 BC - 969 = 4199 BC. The Egyptian Sothis calendar ended 2737 BC. 2737 BC - 1460 = 4198 BC. Thus both calendars may have been in use together. Thus Methuselah may have died the year of the flood.

Lamech lived 182 years. If Lamech was born on the Egyptian Sothis date 777 BC, 3421 BC, then died 182 years later, that would be 3239 BC. Then if Lamech died 192 years later and not 182 years later, Lamech would have died the year of Noah's flood also, 3230 BC. Then both Methuselah and Lamech could have died the year of Noah's flood if in 3230 BC.

Genesis 6:3 "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years."

120 years after this 3230 BC is about 3115 BC. Thus 969 years back from 3230 BC matches the beginning of the Egyptian sothis calendar. Then 110 years later year 595 when Lamech died 3120 BC.

Thus the year of Noah's flood should be 120 years after year 595 = 3115 BC. Then the Bible uses the Armenian sothis calendar which ended 1460 years in 2010 AD. Thus new years in 3830 BC, year 595 in 3235 BC. Then year 969 be from the Egyptian sothis calendar from 4198 BC = 3230 BC = year 600 Armenian sothis.

Noah's flood in year 600 means the calendar backed up 150 days from new years in July. Yet there may be 120 more years to 3115 BC.

Nevertheless, Armenian sothis year 600 should equal 3230 BC and the death of Methuselah at the time of the flood at the Egyptian sothis year 969 BC, from 4198 BC.

3115 BC + 5 + 182 + 187 + 120 = 3609 BC. 4198 BC - 600 = 3598 BC. Egyptian sothis year 600 = 3600 BC, Armenian sothis year 600 = 3115 BC.

Egyptian Sothis 1460 years back from 2737 BC = 4198 BC. Armenian Sothis 3715 BC 1450 years back = 4575 BC. Methusaleh 969 forward = 3606 BC. To 3115 BC = 491 years.

However, the Botai who domesticated the horse in 3500 BC, were destroyed in 3100 BC in Kazahkstan.

Noah's flood could have been in Egyptian sothis year 600 = 3598 BC. And Noah may have saved the domesticated horse that the Botai adopted by 3500 BC.

The Armenian calendar ended in 2010 AD. Thus it should have started in 3830 BC. Then year 600 be 3230 BC. Methusaleh 969 years back from 3230 BC is 4198 BC = the beginning of the Egyptian sothis calendar. Lamech 777 years back from 3230 BC is 4007 BC = 4000 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

Noah's flood year 600 = 3115 BC. Lamech died year 595, 3120 BC, back 777 years = 3897 BC = Egyptian sothis year 300 from 4198 BC. Enoch may = this year 300.

Kazahkstan was the area of Noah's flood in the Aral and Caspian Sea basin.

Perhaps the flood took place in Armenian sothis year 600 corrected by 115 years more recent to 3115 BC.

Thus Noah may be credited with saving the modern day horse.

The Mayan calendar start date: August 14, 3114 BC Gregorian = September 6, 3114 Julian. The difference between the Gregorian calendar and the Julian calendar for the same date is 23 days later was the Julian date. The second Mayan calendar start date: 3 Pop, September 2, 3114 BC Gregorian = + 23 days = the new moon Septebember 25, 3114 BC. Then one year earlier, September 25, 3115 BC was the 17th lunar day of the seventh month. Thus 3 Pop may be the day Noah's ark rested. Thus there may have been a sun miracle the same day that the Mayan's recorded as 3 Pop. New Years, 1 Pop began July 26. 2 Pop began August 26. 3 Pop began September 25. Thus a sun miracle the 17th day of the 7th month in September 25, 3115 BC may foretell Jesus' birth the 17th day of the 7th month September 13, 7 BC.

If these calculations for the Mayan calendar are one year too recent, then the September 25, 3115 BC Julian would simply be this lunar day 17 of the seventh month recorded by Noah.

The ancient East Indian calendar Aryabbata began about 3101 BC. 3600 years back from 499 AD. The beginning date was February 18, 3101 BC. The beginning month of Noah, was February 11, 3115 BC.

Thus the first month of Noah's flood should be in February in both the Armenian and East Indian calendars. Then both calendars may have counted from a sun miracle at the time of Noah's flood. Also, 3115 BC was 3100 years before Yao/Joseph's long day April 2, 2315 BC.

The Armenian calendar appears to start from July 11, just as the Egyptian Sothis calendar appears to start from July 16. Thus 150 days back 600/4 was the new moon February 11, 3115 BC. Then the new moon February 12, 3115 BC began the first lunar month. Then March 12, 3115 BC began the second lunar month. Then 17 days later on the 17th lunar day of the second month would be, Saturday, March 28, 3115 BC. Jewish tradition states the sun rose in the west and set in the east seven days before the flood perhaps March 28, 3115 BC. Half an earth orbit may be 365/2 = 183 days. 183 days from the 17th day of the 2nd month, from March 28, 3115 BC is September 25, 3115 BC. This is the exact date of Pop 3 in the Mayan calendar + 23 days to September 2 Gregorian = September 25 Julian. This is the 17th day of the 7th month.

Then the seventh month must have counted from March instead of February.

The sun may move 180° and earth flow out of the reverse orbit, at the half orbit point, and move again 180° the next day and earth flow into the reverse orbit.

Then the sun may have returned one year later, Saturday March 27, 3114 BC and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Then Noah step out of the ark Saturday March 27, 3114 BC. Then the sun may return one year after March 28, 3115 BC on March 27, 3114 BC and there may have been a long sunset and a long rainbow.

Then the Mayans may have observed a sun miracle September 25, 3115 BC on the 17th day of the seventh month. Then the Mayan's may have begun their calendar at that exact date. Jesus' birth may have been on the 17th day of the seventh month, September 12, 7 BC. Joseph was sold by his brothers when he was 17. Jacob lived 17 more years when he and his family sojourned in Egypt. The 17th year may point to the 17th day. And these dates point to Jesus' birth.

The Sojourn in Egypt was written from the 430th (Sothis) year to the end (of the Sothis calendar). Thus from 2307 BC, the 430th year from 2737 BC, to the Exodus in 1281 BC the end of the 1460 (1456) year Sothis calendar. The Egyptian sothis calendar had no February 29 leap year. The new years day was July 16 when Sirius first appeared at 4:15 AM. Thus Sirius would disappear for 70 days and reappear July 16. Every four years the calendar would back up one day. In four years new years would be July 15, four more years new years would be July 14. In 4 X 365 days = 1460 years, new years would back up to July 16 and the first appearing of Sirius at 4:15 AM.

The Sojourn would be written as Tav-Shin-Shin-Bet-Vav (400+300+300+20+6) = 1026 years. Thus if the total years were thus written, only the year 400 may have survived and the remainder 26 years be assumed 30 years. The end of the Sothis calendar was supposed to be 1460 years.

Thus if the first year of the Sojourn into Egypt was 430 Sothis, the end of the Sothis calendar when the calendar had backed up 365 days from July 16 to July 16, actually back from July 16 to July 17 because Sirius rose first before dawn a day early = 4 years early, July 17 1282 BC = Sothis cycle 1456 years = Sojourn 1026 years, because the Egyptians did not have February 29 leap year would equal 4 X 365 = 1460 years. Thus the Sojourn could be written in Hebrew 400 (300 + 300) 30.

The missing letters 300 + 300 leaving 400 + 30. See Judaism 101, Hebrew Alphabet. Thus from the Sothis year 430 in 2307 BC to the end of the Sothis cycle is what was written. Yet the duration could be written in Hebrew 400 .. 30 as well. Thus the confusion of the years 430: The captivity was 400 years, the last 400 years of the 1026 year Sojourn in Egypt.





Genesis 15:12 "And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
15:14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance."

The appearing of Sirius 4:15 AM July 19 should have ended the Sothis cycle in 1460 years from 1281 BC in 179 AD.

There was a coin struck in Alexandria in 138 AD in the reign of Antoninus Pius. Some had estimated the new sothis cycle should begin then. However, the Egyptians had lost track of time and this was an estimation. The actual 1460 years after 1281 BC would be 178 AD. 144 years after Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD is 177 AD. There was a coin minted in Antioch with the Phoenix on the face, Constantius II AE3. 348-350 AD. Perhaps Phoenixes appeared in these years. Tacitus wrote the phoenix appeared in 33 AD in Egypt. Thus there must have been a sun miracle at the time of Jesus' crucifixion. The Egyptian Bennu, phoenix, is called the lord of jubilees. Clement wrote about the Phoenix in 180 AD perhaps inspired by a sun miracle that year.

Nevertheless, the sun was said to have rose in the west and set in the east seven days before the great flood of Noah in year 600 of the sothis cycle. The Aral Sea may be the site of the great flood of Noah. A great lake formed there briefly about 3500 BC.
Aralkum - a man - made desert, p.18

If Terah's death in year sothis 205 was when Abraham was 75 in 2532 BC. Then the new sothis cycle 205 + 2532 = 2737 BC

Genesis 5:30 "And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:
5:31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died."

The Armenian calendar began about 5175 BC. Then 1460 years later was 3715 BC the next sothis cycle. The Egyptian sothis cycle began again in 4198 BC. This is a 483 year difference, about 500 years.

Jesus may have been crucified when he was 38 years six months. Double this is 77 years. The 777 years of Lamech may point to Jesus.

Sirius was observed by 7000 BC in Armenia.

Ancient people may have understood earth rotates to produce day and night. Then when the sun rose in the west, stood still, and set in the east, to rise suddenly in the east; God had moved the sun at terrific speeds. Also, Joshua expected the sun rising in the west to set in the east in 12 hours. He may have understood after setting in the east the sun would suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east for a short day. He needed a long day to get the victory. Thus Joshua's prayer to God for the sun to stand still.

"[99 BC] When C. Murius and L. Valerius were consuls, in Tarquinia, there fell in different places...a thing like a flaming torch, and it came suddenly from the sky. Toward sunset, a round object like a globe, or round circular shield took its path in the sky, from west to east."

"[90 BC] In the territory of Spoletium (65 Roman miles north of Rome, in Umbria) a globe of fire, of golden colour, fell to the earth, gyrating. It then seemed to increase in size, rose from the earth, and ascended into the sky, where it obscured the disc of the sun, with its brilliance. It revolved towards the eastern quadrant of the sky [Harold T. Wilkins, Flying Saucers on the Attack, pp.164-69]"

There is a long list of very bright objects, brighter than the sun, Mysteries of the Unexplained, p.207.

Then perhaps at times a bright angel, or even God, brighter than the sun, may appear to rise in the west at night. This may seem to suggest what was recorded was an angel and not the sun. However, the brilliant phoenix flew to the sun to move it when there was a sun miracle. Thus this may be the sun ascending from the west to the east. Nevertheless, there is no turning back when we see the bright light of God.

Acts 26:13 "At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me."

Genesis 8:4 "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat."

Hebrews 8:5 "Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount."

This 17th day of the 7th month may be a picture of Jesus' birth. Thus Noah's flood may be a pattern of Jesus' birth.

Limited Faith that God is Limited to Stopping the Earth is Wrong

If the earth stopped or reversed its rotation, the problems are immense. If you stop the earth from rotating, you must then start it rotating again. If the earth slowed in its rotation one minute in a 24 hour period, the oceans at the equator would drop 800 feet. If the earth stopped rotating, dry land would ring the equator. If the earth stopped rotating for 24 hours there would be 24 hours of missing time. If the sun revolved around the earth 360° there would again be 24 hours of missing time. If the sun moved halfway around the earth in a series of 4 sun miracles there would be no net missing time. No evidence left.

The word for - So the sun stood still in the "midst" of heaven - is literally half, "from the half of heaven". Of the 126 times it is used in the Bible, 108 times it is translated as "half" and 8 times as "midst". If you are counting on the stars of heaven as your guide, the only way the sun can stand still from the half of heaven is if the sun revolved around the earth to the other half of heaven. That night Israel would see stars from the other half of heaven.

Greater Faith that God Moved the Sun is Right

If the sun moved not 360° but 180° the seasons would change. Earth would flow into a reverse orbit of the sun and must shift on its axis or the sun must move up or down as well as moving the 180° to keep in the same season, unless on the vernal or autumn equinox. Very likely the sun moved up or down after moving the 180° and the orbits of the planets tilted with the sun and no pole shift was necessary. Simply, the sun must move to the path of the zodiac. If the sun moved 180° from Capricornus to Gemini, the sun must move up to Gemini, yet the height of the sun on earth would appear as if it was in Capricornus. Therefore, the sun must move six signs to the exact sixth zodiac sign and earth would keep in the same season.

The path of the zodiac would be the same only halfway removed and moving in reverse. Therefore, earth would not see any more or less stars, only a summer sky in winter. The earth would not need to shift on its axis to keep in the same season. This works so perfectly and exactly I am surprised no one has discovered the perfectness of earth in a reverse orbit.

If the sun moved 180° west the night of February 16, 1241 BC to rise suddenly in the east in the morning of February 17, 1241 BC the sun must move down to keep the same inclination to earth. Then earth would keep in the same season. The sun may simply keep its inclination to earth as it travelled around earth. Perhaps the sun moved along the exact same zodiac path, only in reverse. We can be sure the sun's inclination to earth was kept. Orbital Variations and Insolation Database (search and read up on it under "orbital variations" or "insolation database") show the seasons and the sun's intensity did not change. This model leaves no evidence. If the sun moved up or down after moving 180° to keep earth in the same season, there would be no affect on the earth.

Earth must orbit the same distance from the sun in the same elliptical orbit it would have. Earth must be let to rotate exactly as it would have. Thus earth's orbit must have been carefully managed to leave no biological trace.

Chinese records of the Exodus

The following record was not a record of a solar eclipse:

"From yi-mao (day 52) to early next morning there was fog, then three flames ate the sun, big stars were seen."
Heji 11506

A total solar eclipse passed through Yin March 4, 1250 BC on day 53 not day 52. The total solar eclipse June 5, 1302 BC, was the following day, Day 53 not day 52. Nevertheless, if not a sun miracle, then this may be a record of a solar eclipse.

From Xueshun Liu:
"As for the inscription that appears in the picture below, you cited two translations. The first one has translated the first four characters as "On the 7th day of the month, a chi-szu day (last quarter moon)..." The second one translates those characters as "At the time period from the night of the seventh day jisi (day 6) ..." It appears that the second translation is correct because of two reasons. First, there is no character yue, 'month' among those four characters. If there is no yue, how could one be sure it was the seventh day of the month? The phrase "seventh day" only means day jisi was the seventh day from whichever day they started counting. Second, if jisi indeed is the seventh day of the month, it should be the first quarter of the month. That's the principle of Chinese lunar calendar.
Therefore, the translation "the 7th day of the month (last quarter moon)" is wrong. Without more information from the inscription, it is not possible to determine to which quarter of the moon day jisi belong.
Now, let's turn to eclipses. First, "Three flames ate (time word) the sun, and a great star was seen" in your email quoted below and "The first record of a solar prominence has been found in a tortoise shell inscription, which describes "three suddenly bursting fires eating a chunk of the sun", which appears on the web site http://www.china.org.cn/e-gudai/6.htm cited in your email yesterday, refer to the same inscription. It is not considered a record of solar eclipse by experts in early Chinese astronomy and early Chinese history.
When I was a Ph.D student in China and in UBC, my advisors include scholars at Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, which is the most prestigious academic institution in China, Prof. Keightley at UC Berkeley, Prof. Takashima at UBC, and Prof. Pankenier at Lehigh University. I also have friends at Chinese Academy of Sciences. All these scholars do not think that inscription is a record of eclipse."

If this was a sun miracle on the Passover X100 years before Jesus' crucifixion, this could be a sun miracle on the full moon in 1268 BC, = 1300 years before Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD, There is no year zero. February 5, 1268 BC was the full moon on day 52 of cycle 60. Thus a sun miracle may have been what was recorded and not a solar eclipse.

Wu Yi became emperor about 1283 BC. He moved his capital in his third year, the year of the Exodus. He again moved his capital in his 15th year, 1168 BC. Thus this oracle bone record may not be of a naturally occuring eclipse, but of a sun miracle. When Jesus was crucified there was darkness recorded for three hours. A solar eclipse only lasts 7 minutes at most. Thus, either the sun was moved around the earth at the speed of light - time stopped on the sun and no sunlight. Or, the sun was covered shadowing the earth. Thus a similar sun miracle to the one at Jesus' crucifixion may have taken place 1300 years earlier, in 1268 BC to point to Jesus.

Divined on day wuxu [35]: "The shape of hui (comet) has changed; perhaps the darkness will go away. (Verification:) It was a clear day." [Heji, 32915]

If the three days of darkness was just before the Passover and the Exodus, then it may have been day 35 of cycle 60, Wednesday, March 28, 1281 BC. Thus the Israelites chose a lamb the 10th day, Sunday, March 25, 1281 BC and kept it in their houses to the 14th day, March 30, 1281 BC when they sacrificed the lamb for the Passover. There may have been a sun miracle six months earlier on what would be Yom Kippur the tenth day of the seventh month September 30, 1282 BC. Or the sun moved to the other side of earth in the three days of darkness the new moon March 15, 1281 BC. 187 days from the first day of the first month is the 10th day of the seventh month.

There are a few other possibilities. The sun may move to the other side of earth and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun, then March 28, 1281 BC, the sun move back and earth flow into the normal orbit of the sun.

However, the three days of darkness may have been on the new moon, March 15, 1281 BC.

The sun may move at the crossing of the Reed/Red Sea, about April 1, 1281 BC, or at the battle of Amalek, Exodus 17, in May 1281 BC.

More likely the sun moved more than 3 X 360° for three days of darkness to the other side of earth at the new moon March 15, 1281 BC. Thus there would be no moonlight in the three days of darkness. Then the sun may have moved back 187 days later at the raising up of the tabernacle on the 10th day of the seventh month, September 20, 1281 BC.

Exodus 10:28 "And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.
10:29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more."

Thus day wuxu 35, March 26, 1281 BC, may be the three days of darkness and the four days the Israelites were to take a lamb into their dwellings where they had light.

If the Exodus was Friday, March 30, 1281 BC, then the new moon was March 13, 1281 BC. The beginning of the previous lunar month may have been the three days of darkness, February 14, 1281 BC, day 52 of cycle 60 in China. This was 45 days before the Exodus on March 30, 1281 BC. The sun may move about 180 days again. Then also, during a reverse orbit, perhaps the sun may move 90 days again and 45 days again. Thus February 14, 1281 BC. March 30, 1281 BC, May 15, 1281 BC at the beginning of the third month just after the long sunset of Moses:

Exodus 19:1 "In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
19:2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount."

"Inquiry made on day ren-ji (49th day of cycle): Will the sun have zhi on day jia-yin." (51st day or two days later)
Heji 33703

The Chinese may have tried to predict the return of the sun about 180 days later, thus on about the same day of 60.

"The divination was on day jen-tzu [49]. There was a chih of the sun on day chia-yin [51]"
(Yi-ts'un, 384)

Likewise, the Chinese may have tried to predict the return of the sun about 180 days after the first sun miracle. This may have been February 13, 1281 BC. The sun may revolve around the earth seven times eastward if the sun blazed, chih, from the east westward 180° in the first three times, then on the fourth time returned revolving around the sun 3 + 4 = 7 X 180°. The sun suddenly rising in the east like Phaethon. Thus this model can explain the Chinese reckoning and no net missing time. Thus eclipse paths were the same before and after the sun miracles as we would project them to be from today.

If the day 7 was a chia-tzu day, last quarter moon, this could be a sun miracle on the day the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, perhaps seven days after the Exodus. Thus perhaps the reason earth was described as being upsidedown.html and the hours disordered after the plagues and devastation ending in the Exodus out of Egypt, because earth was in a reverse orbit.

The date of Pharaoh Mernaptah's death is placed at about May 2, 1203 BC according to Wikipedia. If this German historian dated the sothis cycle to 1280 BC, then Merneptah's death in 1203 BC would be 80 years later. The calendar would then back up 20 days, 20 X 4 = 80. Then the date of May 2, 1203 BC, III Shemu 5, would actually be May 20, 1281 BC. Sunday May 20, 1281 BC was the day of Pentecost. This would be written I Shemu 13 rather than II Shemu 13. Thus Merneptah may have died one month earlier April 1, 1281 BC instead of May 2. Counting July 1 as the 30th day of the 4th month, May 2, may be the 5th day of the 3rd month. However, counting 3 months back from July 1 is April 1. And counting forward 5 days is April 5. Thus Pharaoh Merneptah died not on May 2, but about April 5, and that in 1281 BC.

If the crossing of the Red Sea was later this would give the Israelites a month to march 350 miles to Aqaba from Ramesses. However, the crossing of the Red/Reed/ Sea must have been before the fifteenth of the second month. See Exodus 16:

Exodus 16:1 "And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt."

This must be May 1, 1281 BC. May 2, 1203 BC was date of Pharaoh Merneptah's death given by a German Egyptologist. Merneptah died in 1281 BC, perhaps in May.

This means they must have crossed the Red Sea in less than one month, that is, before the fifteenth day of the second month, April 27, 1281 BC. May 2, 1203 BC is the 10th day of the lunar month. April 24, 1281 BC is also the tenth day of the lunar month.

If May 2 is the fixed Egyptian date and not the moving sothis date, this May 2, 1281 BC would be day 10 of cycle 60 in China when a solar or lunar eclipse was recorded in the Shang dynasty. The bible does not state pharaoh drowned in the Red/Reed Sea. Thus Merneptah may have died a month after the Exodus and his death be from natural causes. Nevertheless, probably Pharaoh was the first one in the Red / Reed Sea.

Likely, the crossing of the Reed Sea was between April 1 and April 5, 1281 BC. Moving the date of the end of the sothis cycle 40 years more recent from 1321 BC to 1281 BC could also move this May 2, 1205 BC date a month earlier to April 1, 1281 BC on day 38 of cycle 60 in China with Israel at the Bitter Lake by the Suez Canal on the third day. The May 2 date then being one complete month out. The Egyptian dates are all one complete month out, such as August 8 really was September 7.

If counting back from the appearing of Sirius at 4 AM July 17; then 16 days + 3 X 30 - 5 = 102 days back = April 5, 1281 BC. Thus the date of Pharaoh Merneptah's death could be at the crossing of the Red Sea/Reed Sea a few days after the Exodus Friday, March 30, 1281 BC. Thus Pharaoh may have drowned in the Red Sea/Reed Sea. Moreover, the date 3.5 may equal April 7, 1281 BC the seventh day of the seven days of unleavened bread. Thus the crossing of the Red/Reed Sea may have been at the end of the seven days of the Passover.

The date in the book: Chronologie des Pharaonischen Ägypten, Mainz, (1997), pp.190, beside pharaoh Merneptah was given 3.5 that was interpreted as May 2, 1203 BC. However, 3.5 = III Shemu 5 in 1281 BC was May 21. In the traditional date of the new sothis cycle in 1320 BC and Merneptah's death in 1203 BC. The sothis end was 1281 BC. Thus from 1320 BC to 1203 BC = 117 years / 4 years a day = 30 days more back, less 10 days in the difference of 1320 BC and 1281 BC. The May 2, 1203 BC date corected 20 days ahead to May 21, 1281 BC. However, Pharaoh's death in April 6, 1281 BC appears to be the best estimation.

3.5 = April 16 + 10 (10 days from the sothis end in 1281 BC rather than in 1320 BC. 1320 BC - 1281 BC = 40 years/4 days a year = 10 days. + 5 days of 3.5 = III Shemu 5) = April 16 + 10 + 5 = May 2, 1203 BC. The correct date of Merneptah's death appears to be the day after Sunday, May 20, 1281 BC. A rounding error could place the death of Pharaoh Merneptah May 19, 1281 BC both the third month of Shemu and the fifth Egyptian day both of the sothis date and the lunar date.

May 20, 1281 BC was the day of Pentecost, 50th day from the Passover March 31, 1281 BC. The 40th day of the Passover March 21, 1280 BC would be May 2, 1280 BC. Perhaps Merneptah died one year earlier, May 2, 1281 BC.

3.5 may equal 3 X 30 day months back. Then perhaps back 16 days from July 16 to June 30, then 3 X 30 days back to April 1, then 5 days ahead to April 5, 1281 BC when the Children of Israel would have crossed the Red/Reed Sea and Pharaoh and his horse drown when the parted waters returned.

Then the May 2 date may be from the new sothis cycle in 1281 BC rather than 1320 BC. Then the Egyptian calendar would have backed up 19 days = 76 years divided by 4 = 19 days. Then back from new years July 16, 30 days to June 16, 30 days to May 16, back the 19 days to April 26 and forward the 5 days to May 2. Thus May 2, 1203 BC is the wrong date for Pharaoh Merneptah's death and April 5, 1281 BC may be the right date for Pharaoh Merneptah's death.

The Egyptian Sothis cycle of 1460 years end was 1281 BC not 1320 BC. Thus, Merneptah's death in III Shemu 5 was not May 2, 1203 BC but May 20, 1281 BC. You can see the same 10 days = 40 years, in the middle of this pdf file, correcting the date of year 44 of Pharaoh Amasis.





Exodus 15:8 "And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floodsH5140 stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea."

"floods" H5140 usually refers to running water. Thus, the Children of Israel may have crossed an eastern most fork of the Nile River.

Exodus 17:5 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go."

Psalm 66:6 "He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him."

This sea may be the eastern most fork of the Nile River by the Suez Canal, rather than the Jordan River. Thus the reference to the flood of the river.

This river may also refer to the crossing of the Children of Israel, as it did to the plagues of the Egyptians. Thus, again the Children of Israel may have crossed an eastern most fork of the Nile River.

Isaiah 11:15 "And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. "

Here also In Isaiah 11:15 the Nile river is dried up inorder for the Children of Israel to cross.

A search on crossing of the Red Sea evidence turns up many pages alleging the crossing of the Children of Israel was in Aqaba with proof of many bones of horses and chariots. However, all of this is a spoof, and the claims are widely circulated fiction. See Snopes.

The Sothis cycle began again in 1281 BC not 1320 BC, a 40 year difference;

year 44 of Amasis, the first date (II Shemu 13) is lunar and the second
(I Shemu 15) is civil and as the civil date fell on 21 September 558 BC
the lunar date fell on 9 (= 21 –12) September 558 BCE
which was a full moon day according to astronomy, not 1st invisibility "shining ones"!
41 years later the 1st invisibility of the moon was on II Shemu 13
September 9 should move 10 days later in the month. 201 days – 191 days = 10 days.
40 years/4 = 10 days. If from IV Shemu 30 July 17, 1281 BC + 5 days.
= September 19, 517 BC which was the 1st disappearance of the moon
when Cambyses conquered Egypt. Thus was 1st invisibility “shining ones”.

Add from July 17 backwards:
1281 BC – 517 BC = 764, 764 /4 =191 days
5 + 17 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 28 + 29 = 201; 201 – 191 = 10 days.
January 2 = 191 days = IV Shemu 30
December 3 = III Shemu 30
November 3 = II Shemu 30
October 4 = 1 Shemu 30
September 4 = 1 Shemu 1
September 19 = 1 Shemu 15; October 17 = II Shemu 13

Thus Pharaoh Merneptah must have died May 20, 1281 BC, at the end of the 1460 year sothis cycle, rather than May 2, 1203 BC.

Sunday, May 20, 1281 BC was also the day of Pentecost, the 50th day from Sunday, April 1, 1281 BC. The 50th day from Jesus' resurrection Sunday April 5, 33 AD was Sunday, May 24, 33 AD = the giving of the Holy Ghost in Pentecost. Thus perhaps there was a sun miracle on the first day of the lunar month May 16, 1281 BC, 45 days after April 1, 1281 BC, in the third month when Moses' hands were held up when the sun was setting and Joshua fought Amalek and the Egyptians deposed and executed the pharaoh Merneptah 5 days later because of the omen of a long sunset.

Amasis pharaoh of Egypt died in 517 BC when Cambyses of Persia conquered Egypt. This was the date I Shemu 15, September 19, 517 BC on the day "shining ones" on the last visibiility of the moon. Then if Amasis died on I Shemu 15 this date may been doubly reinforced as I Shemu 15 from April 1, 1281 BC when the Egyptians drowned in the Reed/Red Sea. A long night of travel while the sun revolved around the earth Friday, March 30, 1281 BC while the pillar of light led them, could take the Israelites the 50 miles to the Reed Sea at today's Suez Canal by April 1, 1281 BC.

"(Preface:) On day gengzi [37]: (Charge:) we should perform an yi-sacrifice to the Bird Star (Niao xing). (Postface:) 7th month." [Heji, 11500]

"(Preface):)Crack-making on day jihai [36], in the evening: (Charge:) on day geng [37], we should perform a bi-sacrifice to the [Northern] Dipper (dou); (Verification:) It rained continuously. Crack making on the evening of day gengzi [37]: we should perform a bi-sacrifice to the [Northern] Dipper (dou) on day xin [38]..." Heji, 21350

The Chinese Yin Calendar began in September. Thus the seventh month would be this day 38, Sunday, April 1, 1281 BC perhaps the time the Israelites crossed the Reed Sea = fresh water sea where reeds grow, (Red Sea). God may have moved the sun to give the Israelites time to cross. Perhaps the sun rose in the west and set in the east Saturday, March 31, 1281 BC. Then after the children of Israel had crossed the Reed/Red Sea the sun may have suddenly and brilliantly rose in the east Sunday April 1, 1281 BC. Then there may have been the same pattern of sun miracles at the Exodus as at Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. The day Gengzi 37 was also celebrated on the new moon a day of brightness April 17, 1170 BC, when the vassels confirmed the kingdom to emperor Wu.

Thus perhaps the sun rose in the west after the Israelites crossed the Reed Sea on the third day from the Exodus April 29, 1281 BC. Jesus' resurrection was Sunday, April 5, 33 AD. Then the sun may have risen in the east suddenly and brightly as at Jesus' resurrection Sunday April 1, 1281 BC on day 38 of 60 Gengzi. Then this day 37 April 17, 1170 BC may have been a day when the sun rose suddenly and brightly in the east also and was taken as an omen to submit to emperor Wu who received the Mandate of Heaven that day. At the Exodus the Big Dipper, dou, would point strait up at midnight Saturday, March 31, 1281 BC perhaps when the sun rose in the west and set in the east. Then earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

Then the sun ascended suddenly in the east and the following night the Big Dipper pointed strait down in the north at midnight, which it never does in a normal orbit. 180 days earlier, half an orbit earlier, October 3, 1282 BC the sun may have moved to the other side of the earth, also on a day 37. Thus day 37, gengzi, would become a superstitious day and thus the pattern of sun miracles at Jesus' crucifixion be repeated.

Likewise the year 451 BC from 1320 BC does not equal the 14th year of Xerxes. Xerxes began his reign in 477 BC. Thus his 14th year was 465 BC. Thus counting from the new sothis cycle from 1281 BC to 465 BC = 816 years. 816 / 4 = 204 days the calendar has backed up. 204 / 30 = 6.8 .8 X 30 = 24. This equals the 25th of Phamenoth 204 days back from July 16. Thus, there could have been a sun miracle on the 13th of Adar in Esther on the Egyptian new year and full moon December 28, 465 BC. The significanse of this date in the 14th year of Xerxes not the 12th year, be the day of Purim. See harvardhouse.com, Biblical Dates.

This 25th of Phamenoth equals 6 months 25 days till July 16 when Sirius first appears at 4 AM = Egyptian new year backed up to December 25, 465 BC. Thus this record from the new moon December 1, 1834 BC in Egypt, uses the same calendar to get an exact date: "For the fixing in time of the {Egyptian Middle Kingdom} and the periods preceding it, the key date is the seventh year of the reign of King Sesostris III of the Twelfth Dynasty. In this year, a helical rising of the star Sothis (our Sirius) was recorded on 16. VIII of the 365-day civil calendar, a fact which, thanks to the regular displacement of this calendar, in relation to the true astronomical year, allows the year in question to be placed between 1876 and 1864 BC, with every probability favoring 1872 BC."

Or counting forward the 25th of Phamenoth would also be this December 25, 465 BC when counting the last month of July, 16 days to the appearing of Sirius.

The Merneptah Stele:

The princes are prostrate, saying, "Peace!"
Not one is raising his head among the Nine Bows.
Now that Tehenu (Libya) has come to ruin,
Hatti is pacified;
The Canaan has been plundered into every sort of woe:
Ashkelon has been overcome;
Gezer has been captured;
Yano'am is made non-existent.
Israel is laid waste and his seed is not;
Hurru is become a widow because of Egypt.

This stele was in Merneptah's fifth year, 1286 BC. Israelites were already in the land.

Merneptah may have killed the Israelites in southern Israel. Then there was Israelites in northern Israel when Joshua conquered southern Israel. Thus, the long day of Joshua 10:12 may have been the same long day of victory in Judges 4,5,6,7,8.

Genesis 15:16 "But in the fourth (fortieth) generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full."

Thus the Hebrews were already in Israel as promised in the 40th generation, 1000 years after the Sojourn in Egypt in 2307 BC. 40 X 25 years to a generation = 1000 years.

Thus there were no Israelites in southern Israel when Joshua invaded because Pharaoh Merneptah had destroyed them 45 years before Joshua's conquest in southern Israel according to Joshua 10.

The book of Judges gives the picture of Israelites already in northern Israel when Joshua began to conquer southern Israel. Thus the battles of Debra and Barak in Judges 4, 5; and the battle of Gideon in Judges 6, 7, 8; were at the same time as Joshua's long day in Joshua 10:12.

Evidence for the Record of the March 4, 1250 BC Eclipse on day 53 of cycle 60:





See the eclipse path. From Five Millennium of Solar Eclipses, NASA. The star in the eclipse path is about where Yin was. Thus this was a total eclipse in that location as the graph states. This may make the solar eclipse the earliest dateable solar eclipse. The argument that no record of a solar eclipse has been found to date before Joshua's Long Day is defeated. There was a new moon on Bingshen day 53 in Wu's first year as emperor. Fourth month, May 19, 1173 BC was the new moon on day 53. This would be Wu's thirteenth year, first year as emperor, when the kingdom became established. For the Chinese to consider day 53 Bingshen a superstitious day, there must have been a total solar eclipse within recent memory on that date. King Wan would have taken note of it.

This and the first year 1251 BC when Wending replaced Wu Yi and the solar eclipse in Wending's first year suggest the Chinese recorded the solar eclipse on day 53, March 4, 1250 BC. Then the argument that no interfering event such as Joshua's Long Day can be detected without an earlier solar eclipse date is defeated. Thus, knowing that eclipse paths were where we would expect them to be, even projecting to before Joshua's long day, this model is necessary and explains how there can be long days yet no missing time. This explains how the solar system can be put back in place as if nothing happened.

See Eclipse Dates in history revise current chronology. See how the experts have it all wrong: EclipseDatesA1.pdf, EclipseDatesA1.ppt. The longer version: EclipseDatesAAA.ppt, EclipseDatesAAA.pdf

The Red Sea crossing and the sun setting while Moses' hands are held up.

Exodus 14:27 "And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea."

Exodus 15:12 "Thou stretchedst outH5186 thy right hand,H3225 the earthH776 swallowedH1104 them."

The word for right hand, right side = H3225 = yamiyn= south. Thus Moses may have witnessed the sun suddenly rise in the east to the noon position = south = towards the right hand, whereupon, the Reed/Red Sea drowned the Egyptians.

the Passover must be from Friday. Perhaps there was on hour of darkness at noon Friday when the Passover lamb must be killed. Then the next day Saturday the sun may rise in the west and set in the east. Whereupon the children of Israel crossed the Reed/Red Sea Saturday. Then the sun may rise suddenly in the east Sunday April 1, 1281 BC after the children of Israel had crossed.

Before the third month, would be the when Joshua fought Amalek:

There may have been another sun miracle in 1281 BC, when Moses held up his hands at sunset. Earth cannot keep flowing into and out of reverse orbits before the half orbit point. Then perhaps if there was a sun miracle at the Red Sea, the sun revolved 360° around the earth and earth's orbit was not changed till Joshua's battle with Amalek.

Exodus 17:1 "And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitchedH2583 in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink."

H2583 ch-ana-h, khaw-naw':
A primitive root (compare H2603); properly to incline; by implication to decline (of the slanting rays of evening); specifically to pitch a tent; generally to encamp (for abode or siege): - abide (in tents), camp, dwell, encamp, grow to an end, lie, pitch (tent), rest in tent.

This battle must have been before the third month, perhaps on the twenty-first of the second lunar month about May 3, 1281 BC. The first day of the third month must be Sunday, April 29, 1281 BC. This would be Pentecost, the 50th day from the Passover.

Exodus 17:12 "But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun."

Then one year later the sun must return. The season of first ripe grapes is in the month of May/June in Israel. Thus, Joshua may have returned from spying out the land and bringing the cluster of grapes one year after Joshua's battle with Amalek:

Numbers 14:9 "Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defense H6738 is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not."

H6738, tse-l, tsale.
From H6751; shade, whether literally or figuratively: - defense, shade (-ow).

Thus Joshua may have expected the sun to return one year later, and God to give them an extended day at noon to conquer Palestine. May 3, 1281 BC was day 10 out of cycle 60. One year later, Saturday, April 27, 1280 BC was also day 10 of cycle 60. Then the Saturday before the Manna fell may have been the crossing of the Red Sea, Or April 27, 1281 BC was Joshua's battle against Amalek and one year later April 27, 1280 BC day 10 of 60 was the 40th day of the Passover when the spies returned and Joshua said, "Let us go up at once" and there was a sun miracle when the sun must return one year later that to the Chinese was like an eclipse.

Or the sun may have stood still for Moses and Joshua Saturday May 12, 1281 BC. When the sun returned one year later May 12, 1280 BC is day 25 of 60 and may be the day 25 when there was a zhi blemish in the sun.

"Divined on day wuzi [25]: (Charge:) The Sun has a blemish, this should perhaps be reported to the [Lord of the Yellow] River.
Heji 33699

Perhaps the sun returned the day after the day of Pentecost - the celebration of Harvest, May 12, 1280 BC. However, if the sun moved back at the battle of Rephidim at the beginning of the third month, May 17, 1281 BC, the sun may move to the other side of the earth the next day, May 18, 1281 BC and Joshua expected the sun to move back one year later on the full moon Saturday, May 18, 1280 BC. Thus a long day would take away the shadow/shade/defense of the Palestinians.

There is the possibility this next oracle bone is from the same reign of Wending. Thus the similar Heji numbers: Heji 11506 and Heji 11503b. Even they may both occupy a part of the same oracle bone or date from the same time and thus were found together. Perhaps Wending the successor of Wu Yi was afraid of Omens from Heaven that gave him the throne and inscribed this oracle bone the day after the total solar eclipse March 4, 1250 BC. On the day of the Exodus, day 37 of 60, - day 7 of the 10 day week - Friday, March 30, 1281 BC, there may have been an hour of darkness at noon Egypt time, like the hour of darkness when Jesus was on the cross and noon Friday April 3, 33 AD. Darkness at noon in Egypt would mean a sudden darkness at sunset in China.

This inscription is an example of the Chinese day starting in the evening after sunset which is important in correctly dating the lunar eclipse in king Wan's 35th year:

"At the time period from the night of the seventh day jisi (day 6) there was (a) big new star that was seen beside Huo Antares."
Heji 11503b

The full moon would be moving toward Antares on day 7 cycle 60 (37), March 30, 1281 BC. The Exodus, March 30, 1281 BC day 37 - could be counted as day 7 of the 10 day week. Thus this could describe a sun miracle on day 7 of the 10 day week. April 29, 1281 BC would be day 7 of cycle 60:

Exodus 17:12 "But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun."

The last quarter moon ended on a Saturday May 12, 1281 BC. This may be the time of this battle Joshua fought against Amalek. Antares would rise in the east at the time the sun set in the west. Then at the time of sunset in Israel, Antares would be at midsky in China, the night half over and sunrise in six hours. Only the sun moved 180° east to stand still in the Egyptian western sky. Thus the sun did not rise in six hours on China. It rose in 18 hours. Then the Chinese sacrificed to Antares the Fire star when the sun finally rose.

See Mechanics problems in geodynamics oracle bones. - "Three flames ate the sun"

This May 3, 1281 BC, if this is an Egyptian fixed date of Merneptah's death to May 3 of any year, would be back from May 3, 144 days + 144 days + July 17 - the appearing of Sirius. Or simply 77 days back from July 16. Thus Sirius did not appear for the 77 days from May 3 to July 16. Perhaps Merneptah's death was not on the disappearing of Sirius May 3, 1281 BC but on a sun miracle perhaps at the crossing of the Red/Reed Sea a few days after the Exodus. Thus the Egyptian date of Pharaoh Merneptah's death in 3.5 should be 3 months back from July 1, is April 1. Then 5 days forward is April 5, 1281 BC.

"You ought to know that the rising of Sothis takes place on the 16th of the 8th month. Announce it to the priests of the town of Sekhem-Usertasen and of Anubis on the mountain and of Suchos. And have this letter filed in the temple records."

Again, back from July 1, 3 months is April 1. Forwar 5 days is April 5, 1281 BC = Pharaoh Merneptah's death. Thus the crossing of the eastern most fork of the Nile River by Suez 5 days after the Children of Israel left Ramses.

The first year of Emperor Wending

Wu Yi died in 1251 BC: "The king was hunting between the Ho and the Wei, when he was frightened to death by a great thunderstorm." in his 35th year.
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.138

Thunderstorms occur frequently in January in China. January 14, 1251 BC was the new moon and a kea-tsze day, day 1 of cycle 60. It was prophesied on a kea-tsze day when there was a sun miracle, omen:

"In his (Te-sin) 22nd year, in winter, he had great hunting along the Wei." "On the kea-tsze day, in the last month of Autumn, a red bird came to Fung..My ancestor, the recorder Ch'ow, divined once for Yu about hunting; and then he met with Kaou-yaou, - from an omen like that which has now occurred."

This sun miracle must be November 16, 1207 BC.

The date of the total solar eclipse in the first year of King Wending, March 4, 1250 BC, confirms the chronology given here. The February 15, 1240 BC date of the sun miracle of king Wan's dream was in Emperor Wending's 12th year. Thus Wending reigned from 1251 BC and his 12th year in 1240 BC. The emphasis of day 53 and an omen in emperor Wu's first year as emperor also on day 53.

March 4, 1250 BC is on day 53 Bingshen. The three days of darkness in the ninth plague of Egypt should be March 28, 1281 BC, just 3 days before the Exodus, Friday March 30, 1281 BC.

"In his (Wending) 11th year, (1241 BC) Ke-leih attacked the hordes of E-t-oo, and having taken their three great chiefs, came with them to court to report his victory. The king put Ke-leih to death."
The Chinese Classics III, The Bamboo Annals, P.138

This was the year of the sun miracle of the fall of Jericho and Joshua's long day. The sun miracle may have made Wending jealous of Ke-leih, so he put him to death.

Wending's 12th Year

King Wan's dream February 15, 1240 BC was when he was middle aged and in battle against King Wending. Then from Wending's 12th year 1240 BC would be king Wan's first year when phoenixes appeared on mount K'e half an orbit after Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC.

"In Wending's 12th year, phoenixes collected on mount K'e." Note: This was the first year of king Wan.
The Chinese Classics. p.138.

Thus these phoenixes are the same as the phoenixes in king Wan's dream, February 15, 1240 BC.

Phoenixes may have been seen with the setting sun on China that stood still at noon for the battle of Merom. The Phoenix was the large fire bird angel that flew to the sun to carry it to the other side of earth. Thus king Wan may have had more light to fight the Shang dynasty that day. All because God made the day longer for Joshua to fight the battle of Merom that day.

"35th year of king Wen of Zhou, 1st month, day bingzi 13, during worship of the full moon the king announced, 'The many...eclipses are untimely, you should begin planning for the succession.'"
Yi Zhou shu. Xiao kai jie. ch.17





This must not be the lunar eclipse visible just after sunset in China September 23, 1205 BC on day 13 of cycle 60 the first month beginning in September. Rather this must be day 13 of the lunar month. Thus worship of the full moon would be on day 15, and a lunar eclipse cannot happen on day 13 of the Chinese lunar month. Lunar eclipses can only occur on lunar day 15 of the Chinese month. Thus it was thought by king Wan to be untimely because it was on day 13 when lunar eclipses are always on Chinese lunar day 15. King Wan was right, and this was not a lunar eclipse, this was a sun miracle. King Wan believed sun miracles showed his appointment of Heaven to be emperor and start a new dynasty. This day 13 was of the 60 day cycle and not the lunar day.

Thus, the reason king Wan stated a lunar eclipse was untimely may have been he mistook day 13 of cycle 60 to be day 13 of the lunar month. Perhaps 13 was a superstitious number to the Chinese. This record of a lunar eclipse in September 23, 1205 BC was the 36th year, and not the 35th year, since Joshua conquered at the battle of Merom, February 15, 1240 BC, one year after the fall of Jericho, February 17, 1241 BC. Three times in Judges it states the land had rest 40 years - the same 40 years from Joshua's long day. In 1207 BC the day one of cycle 60 was on September 21, 1207 BC which was the 17th day of the seventh lunar month. Jesus may have been born on the 17th day of the seventh lunar month, September 13, 7 BC. So God's purpose for the sun miracle may have been to point to Jesus' birth.

Several recorded solar eclipses occurred on a full moon and thus were not solar eclipse. An example is the darkness associated with the assassination of Julius Caesor on the Ides of March, the full moon on the 15th lunar day:

"it was not only on account of our contest with them, but on account of all mankind in common, that we have taken vengeance on those who have been the authors of great injustice towards men, and of great wickedness towards the gods; for the sake of which we suppose it was that the sun turned away his light from us."
Josephus, The Antiquities of the Jews/Book XIV, chapter 12, verse 22.

Forty years from Joshua's long day:

These are the same forty years from Joshua's first year in 1241 BC:

Judges 3:11 "And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died."

Judges 5:31 "So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years."

Judges 8:28 "Thus was Midian subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more. And the country was in quietness forty years in the days of Gideon."

Deuteronomy 31:10 "And Moses commanded them, saying, at the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,
11 When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God, in the place he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing."

Joshua 24:14 "Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in all sincerity and truth: and put away the gods your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt, and serve ye the LORD.
15 And if it seem evil for you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house we will serve the LORD."

The 35th year of Wan was the seventh Sabbath fallow year. The feast of tabernacles was in this September on this full moon of the lunar eclipse. Perhaps this was when Joshua gathered Israel together and spoke in Joshua 24 when he was old and nearly 110 years old. This may be a time of a sun miracle, a sign from Heaven to seal the covenant. Thus, the lunar eclipse would be a further sign of heaven king Wan took to declare to the Shang Emperor: "you should be planning for the succession".

The lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC is from NASA's Five Millennium Canon of Lunar Eclipses.
From January 7 day 5 1500 BC. So day 60 was January 2, 1500 BC. So subtract 1500-1205, multiply by 365.25, delete the remainder after the dot, divide by 60, multiply after the . dot the remainder X 60, add to January 2 and continue to September 23, subtract all the 60's, and you get day 13 of 60:

1500-1205=295, X365.25=107748.75; 107748/60=1795.8; .8X60=48; From January 2; 48+29+28+31+30+31+30+31+31+23=312; 5X60=300, 312-300=12. The following day was day 13! The day was counted from sunset, so this lunar eclipse occurred on day 13.

Nevertheless this September 23, 1205 BC eclipse cannot be the event described by king Wan either.

Te-sin's first year was 1227 BC. Thus his third year was in 1223 BC. The Exodus was in year 35 of cycle 60 in 1281 BC from 2636 BC in China. Josephus wrote Joshua died in the 20th year of Israel's conquest = 1221 BC = year 35 of cycle 60 and a seventh year fallow year. However, Joshua states the people had dwelt in the land for a long time. Thus for Joshua to be 40 and a young man when the 12 spied out the land, he then should have lived 30 more years from his 80th year in the year of conquest. Thus, Joshua may have died in 1211 BC at 110 years of age. Even so, there could have been a sun miracle to mark Joshua's death in the 20th year of conquest.

"In his (Te-sin) 3d year a sparrow produced a hawk." - at the end of the 21st year of Joshua, the seventh year of release when the law was to be read.

Perhaps there was a sun miracle on this seventh year and the hawk was really the phoenix. Josephus wrote that Joshua lived to the 20th year since the conquest. So, Joshua may have made the declaration of Joshua 24 in the fourteenth year of the Chinese cycle 60.

In the time of Hwang-te, there had been a prophesy to the effect that 'the chief of the west should become king in a certain kea-tze year'."
The Chinese Classics

"In his 22nd year, in winter, he had great hunting along the Wei." "On the kea-tsze day, in the last month of Autumn, a red bird came to Fung..My ancestor, the recorder Ch'ow, divined once for Yu about hunting; and then he met with Kaou-yaou, - from an omen like that which has now occurred."

The sun miracle might have occurred in Te-sin's 22nd year, day one of cycle sixty, November 16, 1206 BC, the year before king Wan made this statement "eclipse is untimely" perhaps because of the sun miracle just previous the lunar eclipse in 1205 BC. November 16 is also the 45th day since the autumn equinox about September 30 at that time in 1206 BC, the last day of Chinese autumn, and the 90th day of autumn. A solar eclipse can occur on the new moon. However, there were no solar eclipses visible from China in those years or dates. Then his 23rd year was in 1205 BC when king Wan was imprisoned, just after his declaration, "eclipse is untimely" because also there was a sign from Heaven that very day that was not only a lunar eclipse.

Perhaps a sun miracle on day 13 of cycle 60 was an unlucky omen. Then the sun miracle at the time of the lunar eclipse on day 13 of cycle 60, September 23, 1205 BC was too much. King Wan felt compelled to declare his mandate from heaven.

"In his 29th year he liberated the chief of the west, who was met by many of the princes, and was escorted back to Ch'ing."

This 29th year was 1200 BC and was the 42nd year from Joshua's conquest and was in the seventh year of release when a sun miracle could be expected. King Wan may have been liberated because of a sun miracle that year. From 1240 BC to 1200 BC Israel had rest. Then they became captive. A sun miracle could be expected in this 29th year, 1200 BC, a sign to Israel of God's displeasure in sending them into captivity and so soon after Joshua admonished them. So, at the sun miracle meant for Israel's captivity, the same sun miracle in China meant king Wan's release.

From this NASA's Web page: "The validity and predictive power of this equation are well documented and can be seen every day: a recent example is the lunar eclipse that was visible to much of the world last Sunday. This calculation would not cover any time before the present, so some missing day many centuries ago, if it had occurred, could not be uncovered with this method."

You will see here the lunar eclipse of September 23, 1205 BC in king Wan's 35th year appears to date king Wan's dream 34 years back to 1239 BC. However this sun miracle record rather May 9, 1206 BC, dates 35 years from king Wan's first year February 15, 1240 BC. Seeing that both a sun miracle on May 9, 1206 BC and the lunar eclipse on September 23, 1205 BC were both on day 13 of cycle 60, these may have been too much for king Wan. At least one of the two must be a sun miracle and not a naturally occurring lunar eclipse. And thus his statement that he had the mandate of heaven. And thus the first sun miracle on day 13 of cycle 60 in the beginning of the year, in spring, May 9, 1206 BC was in his 35th year from February 15, 1240 BC. Nevertheless, his statement was after the lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC.

Using the simple orbital mechanics demonstrated here, dates Joshua's long day to August 24, 1241 BC. The space men in the Missing Day Story could make all these calculations just from king Wan's dream. This lunar eclipse occurred Sunday night, March 24, 1997, the day before this NASA page was written. The predictive power works backwards just as well as forwards. A solar eclipse March 4, 1250 BC day 53 is evidence Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC left no lasting effect on orbits. All was controlled allowing the long days and leaving no trace. All lunar eclipse speculations do not match king Wan's 35th year on day 13 of 60. Even September 23, 1205 BC was day 13 of cycle 60.

However, the emphasis king Wan made was that there was a lunar eclipse on lunar day 13 and not lunar day 15 and thus he suggested this was a sun miracle, omen for him, king Wan, to become emperor. The sun may have moved on day 13 of cycle 60, May 9, 1206 BC half an orbit, half a year, after the sun miracle November 1207 BC. Thus lunar eclipses do not occur on Chinese day 13, but on Chinese day 15.

Let's do the math: 1500 BC - 1065 BC = 435, 435 X 365.25 = 158883.75 notice the .75, one fraction more and this is day 14 for sure. 158883/60 = 2648.05, .05 X 60 = 3, 3 plus the 29 more days from January 2 to January 31, + 29 leap year, + 13 = 74 - 60 = 14. If the .75 day is not yet leap year, then this is still day 14 because the day begins with sunset.

The lunar eclipse date March 13, 1065 BC was on day 14 of 60 not because that year was leap year and the day following was day 15, but because the day 14 started at sunset the night of the lunar eclipse. The day was counted from sunset. So the night of March 13, 1065 BC is day 14, not day 13. 1065 BC is way off from the actual 35th year of king Wan.

Perhaps King Wan's dream was Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC, the same day as the battle of Merom in Joshua 11.

King Wan's Dream





"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. A phoenix duck sang on mount K'e. In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang. Afterwards a male and female phoenix went about Wan's capital with a writing in their beaks, which said: 'The emperor of Yin has no principle, but oppresses and disorders the empire. The great decree is removed: Yin cannot enjoy it longer. The powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away. The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas.'"
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Part V the Dynasty of Chow p.143, The Chinese Classics.

The sun must have moved back from Virgo in February 15, 1240 BC 180° to Pisces that night. The earth continued to revolve so Fang/Scorpio soon set and rose in the east after the sun had moved back. Thus all the next 12 hours of night Scorpio would rise above: "The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas."

Then Joshua's long day must have been Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC half an orbit earlier. Half an orbit earlier, 177 days, is also on the sixth day of the lunar month. Joshua's long day is often depicted on the six day moon for the moon to be visible with the noon day sun. Perhaps the moon and sun rose in the west that day. Then Joshua would be well aware of where the moon was, that is setting in the east.

Isaiah 45:6 "That they may know from the rising of the sun and from the shading, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things."

Isaiah 59:19 "So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the shading, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him."

Joshua's victory August 24, 1241 BC may be connected to Jesus standing up to speak from Isaiah 61 in Luke 4 on the same day of the year, either at the beginning of the seventh month = August 28, 29 AD Rosh Hashanah, or the New Year, Friday night the sabbath, September 9, 29 AD Yom Kippur. Jesus' real name is Joshua meaning Salvation. If you want Salvation come to Gospel Meeting.

These are hard cold facts and calculations. Even without the Missing Day Story the dates and calculations are the same. Then NASA's statement, that "this calculation would not cover any time before the present", when the event in Joshua 10:13 can be dated from such a lunar eclipse, is defeated. You can do the calculation yourself. If the sun moved back February 15, 1240 BC then the sun first moved to the other side of earth one year earlier, February 17, 1241 BC. If you have a globe you can simulate this. Move the sun to the other side of the globe. Now shift earth's axis by twisting the base to keep the same incline of the sun to earth.

Now, half an orbit later you can shift the globe back by the same amount, the sun move back and the sun's inclination to earth is the same and earth can flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Only except for at the equinoxes there is a slight inequality of the number of days of the half orbit and half of a year. Even at the equinoxes there is a difference of missing time between the two half reverse orbits because earth's orbit is elliptical.

Thus with several days difference, 188 days to 177 days, this accounts for the missing 40 minutes in the 24 hour day applied to the half orbit. Earth did not shift, the sun moved up or down after moving to the other side of earth. Neverless, this allows the sun to move back and forth at the half orbit point. Even the planets can equally move back and forth 180° at the half orbit point and be where we would expect them at that time and position in the sky although the background stars are all different. Thus you can see the sun moving back travelling 5 X 180° east on Joshua's long day in the eighth month, seventh day = Sabbath, for Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC, half an orbit after February 17, 1241 BC.

Then to keep an even net 48 hours of long days that reverse orbit year, the sun must rise suddenly in the east moving 180° west for a negative 12 hours February 17, 1241 BC and August 24, 1241 BC the sun proceeded to rise in the west, stand still in the sky for 24 hours, then set in the east for 5 X 180° = +60 hours, then the sun rose suddenly in the east for a -12 hours; allowing for a long day of 12 more hours when the sun moved back at the battle of Merom, February 15, 1240 BC: -12 hours + 60 hours -12 hours + 12 hours = 48 hours.

The lunar eclipse on day 56, August 29, 1352 BC, was during King Wuding's reign further confirming the chronology of king Wen's first year in 1240 BC. "This was (August) the 12th month was the month of the Yin calendar. It was several months slower than our current calendar."
Xueshun Liu

Thus the full moon of September 23, 1205 BC was the first month in this Yin calendar. However, the record describes the first month of spring April 26, 1206 BC.

Chinese chronology about the time of Joshua.

"After seven days, at the time from jiwei (day 56) to gengshen (day 57), the moon was eclipsed." was wrongly given the date August 14, 1166 BC. August 14 was day 57. Between day 56 and day 57 was the eclipse. Thus for this to be the correct eclipse this should read between day 57 and day 58 the moon was eclipsed.
August 12, 1269 BC was on day 54 with .75 of a day so could be day 55. Xueshun Liu emailed me that it was a possibility because the night began with day 56. This eclipse may not have been visible from Anyang according to NASA's Lunar Eclipse Canon. Neither was this day the right day.

The lunar eclipse on August 29, 1352 BC was on day 56. This meets all requirements because between day 56 and day 57 was the lunar eclipse. So the night of August 29 day 56 was the eclipse then sunrise on day 57.

The Bamboo Book chronology adding two 60 year cycles to Wu in 1050 BC to Wu in 1174 BC: Thus you see Wuding/Woo-ting in 1352 BC and Wanting/Wending in 1251 BC and in Wending's 12th year 1240 BC:

Woo-ting1399 BC
Tsoo-kang1340 BC
Tsoo-keah1329 BC
Fung-sin1296 BC
Kang-ting1292 BC
Woo-yih1285 BC
Wanting1250 BC
Te-yih1235 BC
Te-sin1226 BC
. . .
Wu1174 BC

King Wan's son Wu becomes emperor

"In the first month, the day jin-shin immediately followed the end of the moon's waning."
- the year Woo/Wu became emperor.

March 1, 1174 BC is day 29 and is the last waning of the moon. Importantly this day 29 of cycle 60 March 1, 1174 is when the moon was just becoming invisible a few days before it passed the sun.

The other date of day 29 January 27, 1122 BC the moon is appearing as a new moon. If it is now visible as a new moon how is it the last waning of the moon? Likewise 60 days later, March 26, 1122 BC, the moon is visible as a new moon also. 1050 BC cannot be the first year of Emperor Wu. Two cycles of 60 years are missing as is given in the text of the Chinese Classics. Wu is 120 years further back. 1122 BC cannot be the first year of the Zhou dynasty. Then Emperor Wu must have become emperor of China in 1174 BC.

There was a new moon on Bingshen day 53 in Wu's first year as emperor. Fourth month, May 19, 1173 BC was the new moon on day 53. This would be Wu's thirteenth year when the kingdom became established.

Jupiter was recorded to be in the Quail Fire constellation Leo just before Wu became emperor. Thus Jupiter is in Virgo/Leo in 1045 BC/1046 BC. Thus man has got the date of Wu's conquest wrong. Wu became emperor of China in 1173 BC not 1045 BC. Jupiter was in the Quail Fire constellation between Hydrae and Crateris in 1177 BC in Wu's ninth year. The sun passed through Hydrae and Crateris in September 1177 BC, with Jupiter appearing there before September and then after September. Then there was a sun miracle in Wu's ninth year as well:

"When King Wu was crossing the Ho, a white fish jumped into his boat in midstream. King Wu bent down and picked it up to use as a sacrifice. After crossing, there was a fire which came down which came down from above to the roof of the king's residence and transformed into a raven. Its colour was ochre. Its call went "P'o-p'o-p'o". At this time the feudal lords who met at Meng-chin without any prearrangement numbered eight hundred. The feudal lords all said, "Chow can be chastised!" King Wu said, "You do not know the heavenly mandate. He cannot be chastised as yet." Then he withdrew his troops and went home." 1177 BC.
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume 1, p.60.

It was given his 3rd year as Emperor was the appointment of Heaven. The battle in 1174 BC was the 23rd of cycle 60 years. This may be from 1173 BC to the bright appointment of heaven in the 28th year of cycle 60 years, 1170 BC.

"In his 12th year the king led the tribes of the west and the princes to attack Yin, and defeated Show in the wilderness of Muh. He took with his own hand Show prisoner in the tower of Nan-tan; and entered into the participation of the bright appointment of Heaven (sun moon), setting up to continue the sacrifices of his ancestors, Luh-foo, the son of Show, known as Woo-kang. In summer, in the fourth month, he returned to Fung and sacrificed in the ancestral temple."
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, the Dynasty of Chow, p44

"At dawn of the chia-tzu day of the second month, King Wu arrived in the morning at Mu-yeh." And Wu defeated Chow. Wu moved his spear and there was a like sun miracle as there was for Lu Yang in 464 BC when the setting sun reversed three stalls. This is Luh-ch'ing who succeeded his father Tan-chih in 464 BC. The sun may have moved with earth's rotation to give the Jews more light on the 13th and 14th of Adar when they avenged themselves in Esther. This date may be the 13th day of the Hebrew 12th month of Adar, Saturday, January 9, and Sunday January 10, 465 BC the 12th year of Xerxes/Ahasuerus of Esther from 477 BC. Or this may be Friday, January 27, 464 BC = Friday/Saturday/Sunday = Adar 13,14,15.

465 BC was seven years before the 49 year jubile in 458 BC = 490 years before Jesus' sacrifice. Thus 465 BC could be the seventh year of release. The sun would have been in Sagittarius, Kow-ts'een, the 1th month = the 11th moath - typo - in China. The 12th month of Adar may have been autumn in China when the sun rose in the west and retreated three stalls. Thus the sun reversing three stalls may be the sun moving back to Sagittarius the 11th month in China.

The sun moving back would then be on the 25th day of the month Adar, January 9, 464 BC. Thus the moon may have set before the sun. The sun may have rose in the west the Saturday Jesus was in the grave to set in the east and suddenly rise in the east on Jesus' resurrection.

This sun miracle on the last quarter moon, and again a year later on the first quarter moon, is very like the fall of Jericho February 17, 1241 BC on the last quarter moon and the battle of Merom/king Wan's dream February 15, 1240 BC on the first quarter moon.

This may be the sun moving to the other side of earth, May 8, 1175 BC, the chia-tzu day - last quarter moon, rising before the sun in the second month. Then one year later the sun must move back, in sixth day of the third month - the sun miracle that day beginning the month on the fourth month, May 8, 1174 BC.

In Wu's 28th of cycle year in the Bamboo Annals = 1170 BC when the vassals resubmitted was the new moon fourth month cyclical date was day 37 of cycle 60, April 17, 1170 BC. Thus, they submitted because four years earlier, they were defeated. Perhaps there was the appointment of Heaven, a sun miracle in Israel on the new moon April 17, 1170 BC, the 37th day of 60 in China.

Likewise his first year was counted as year 24. 1174 BC was the 24th year of cycle 60 form 2636 BC.

"Even more striking is the '23rd-year' record in the 'Feng bao' chapter, mistakenly included among entries concerning King Wen's reign." This 23rd year should be the 23rd year of cycle 60 = 1175 BC. Thus Wu was 12 years a king from his father's death in 1186 BC to become emperor of China in 1174 BC.

You can do the math: From day one, January 27, 2636 - 1170 = 1466, 1466 X 365.25 = 535456.5, drop the remainder, 535456/60 = 8924.2466, .2466 X 60 = 16. + January 26, + 5 = January 31 + 28 + 31 + 17 = 97 - 60 = day 37.

There may have been a sun miracle on March 30, 1281 BC the Exodus, on a day 37, gengzi day, that became an omen for the day 37 new moon April 17, 1170 BC for emperor Wu. The character for sun and moon are together indicating the new moon on this day 37 of cycle 60 = April 17, 1170 BC. Just as there may have been an omen for Wending on day 53 Bingchen, the total eclipse of March 4, 1250 BC and day 53, May 19, 1173 BC for emperor Wu.

The Bamboo Books do not refer to the name emperor Wu, only to the recipient of the Mandate from Heaven from the portent April 17, 1170 BC. Thus there probably was a sun miracle that day.

You can see the new moon on day one of 60, year one of 60, in the Chinese new year of January/February. Which also began on the day of a sun miracle = phoenixes and sacrifice in China. Then half an orbit later August 2, 2636 BC on the 10th day of the seventh month, the sun may move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. And the sun move again and earth flow into a reverse orbit again. Then one year later January 27, 2635 BC, the sun move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit, on the 10th day of the first month.





Please see The Bamboo Anals Revisited. Problems of Method in using the Chronicle as a Source for a Chronology of Early Zhou.

Fall of Jericho

Joshua 6:15 "And it happened on the seventh day, they rose early, at the dawning of the day, and went around the city seven times."

Thus the first day of the first month be January 27, 1241 BC.





H 7925 means to load up early. The same word also means shoulders. Thus the sun rising above the shoulders of the mountains in the east. 7837* is the word Ayin Lamed, which means to rise above to the point of declining. It can also mean God, El. The letter in front is Bet which means from. The next word 7837 is actually a different word and means to dawn. Thus the sun rising above the mountains is now directly from above and declining to the west. Thus this means a sudden "dawn". Also, the sun should proceed naturally to set in the west. The mountain shed a shadow over the town of Jericho on the summer solstice. The February 8, position of the sun 180° later, in the setting mountains to the northwest, may have been like the August 15, position until the sun moved down to keep earth in the same season.

Thus the conquered city which may have been in awe of the solstice shadow may again be in awe February 17, 1241 BC when the sun may have suddenly rose in the east. On the resurrection Sunday, April 5, 33 AD, the sun setting in the west over this mountain may have cast a shadow over Jericho because the sun had not yet moved down while it was moving to the other side of earth. The sun in a direct path would sail high above Jericho near the summer solstice position point as it had moved more than 90° by sunset to complete 180° before Monday sunrise. Thus the shadow of this mount of Temptation, could fall on Jericho. This mountain may have been the mount of Temptation when Jesus fasted forty days and was victorious over Satan August 28, 29 AD at the beginning of the 7th month, or September 9, 29 AD at the New Year Yom Kippur.

Jesus was victorious over death when the sun may have risen again suddenly in the east.





This oracle bone may describe the China version of the sun moving at the fall of Jericho, if not the hour of darkness at the Exodus:

"At the time period from the night of the seventh day jisi (day 6) there was (a) big new star that was seen beside Huo Antares."
Heji 11503b

Then this day seven would be the last quarter moon, the last seven days, a chia-tzu day. The last quarter moon would be beside Antares that morning in China in February 17, 1241 BC. Perhaps the sun traveled 180° west. Then Antares may have been appeared directly overhead at sunset/dark in China. Before February 17, 1241 BC Jupiter would appear 15° above the sun as the sun set in the west. Jupiter would set one hour after the sun set. Then Jupiter in Pisces would move 180° to Libra. The sun would move 180° from the first part of Pisces to Virgo. Thus Jupiter, the brightest planet, would appear in Libra beside Antares. Then Jupiter could be the bright new star beside Antares. February 17, 1241 BC the sun was right on top of Mars.

Wuding records a battle commenced by his general Chu late in the day and continued into the early hours of the next chia-tzu. A battle cannot be easily fought in the dark. Possibly this was a record of the sun being moved that provided light to fight.
Ancient Chinese Warfare, Chapter 9, p.166.

Here are examples of the Children of Israel fighting at night, the night before Joshua's long day, the same night that Gideon fought. There are some records of the sun coming out at night. Thus the sun may have rose in the west, stood still for 24 hours at noon, set in the east. Then the sun suddenly and brilliantly ascend in the east.

Joshua 10:9 "Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night."

Judges 7:19 "So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands."

Thus this oracle bone if describing the sun miracle of February 17, 1241 BC, should not state a bright new star was seen beside Mars, which is red like the fire star Antares Huo, unless Mars did not move in unison with the sun. Nevertheless, if the sun suddenly moved and left Mars and Jupiter behind, Jupiter could appear beside Mars.

Archaeological digs at Jericho have not found a layer of habitation for 1241 BC. Although they did for the city of Hazor for 1240 BC, which Joshua burned to the ground. God may not have left anything of Jericho that wicked city. Likewise God may not have left anything of Sodom or Gomorrah.

Joshua 6:24 "And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD."

1 Kings 18:36 "And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
18:37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
18:38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench."

God consumed even the stones. Therefore, God could leave no trace of Jericho, or Sodom or Gomorrah.

Elijah called for three and a half years of famine to bring the people back to God, which he did in this verse. Ahab began his reign in the 38th year of Asa, 946 BC. Someone stated there is no trace of drought back to 950 BC, no low level in the Sea of Galilee. Bible chronology does not include 38 years for Azariah, but makes Azariah and Uzziah the same person. These are two separate Kings of Judah. Thus there should be a drought of three and a half years from 946 BC. Thus, this statement against the three and a half years of drought is unfounded because the chronology for Ahab is not 914 BC but 946 BC. Thus there was a drought about 950 BC he acknowledged. Thus this drought should be only a few more years more recent and really did occur.

Thus the age of Jesus when he was crucified, 38 years old, was reinforced in the chronology of the kings. And just as the 38 years for Azariah was hidden, the habitation layer of Jericho at the time of Joshua was hidden.

The fall of Jericho must have been marked by a sudden sunrise. Then earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then half an orbit later, 188 days later, the sun rose in the west at the second watch at night about 11 PM in August 23, 1241 BC. This was the night Joshua was called to help Gibeon and the night Gideon was bidden of God to attack the Midianites. Then the battles. The sun was passing west to east and was at the noon position when Joshua asked God to make the sun and moon stand still. The first quarter moon rose before the sun in the west, and now was setting in the east. Thus Joshua asked that both the sun and moon stand still. The sun then revolved almost 360° around the earth to stand still in the sky for a whole day.

Therefore the moon which was about to set in the east, stood still in the Ajalon valley. Afterwards, the sun also set in the east. Then brilliantly and suddenly rose in the east Sunday morning, August 25, 1241 BC. Earth had flowed out of a reverse orbit of the sun and now back into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then half a orbit later, February 15, 1240 BC, the sun revolved around the earth 180° with earth's rotation to stand still in the noon sky for 12 hours in the battle of Merom. Then earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Earth's orbit was 100% normal, no trace was left. Even there was no net missing time.

Solar eclipse paths were the same before and after as predicted by computer model. Orbits are well understood and can be projected forward or backward. And the interfering event has been uncovered here using simple orbit mechanics.

Jesus sent the twelve apostles into all the world to proclaim the light of Jesus' life just as the light of the sun lightens the 12 hour day 360° around the world. The sun standing still for Joshua for 24 hours was also like the eternal day of a saved eternity in Heaven.

You are invited to come and hear the Gospel and follow the Light of life, the lowly Jesus.

Joshua may have crossed the river Jordan Sunday, February 4, 1241 BC when the Jordan was in flood, the 10th day of the lunar month. The Jordan is naturally in flood in January. Then the manna ceased Monday, February 5, 1240 BC the next day. Then they ate of the fruit of the promised land. Then Joshua may have kept the Passover, Thursday, February 8, 1241 BC. Then the walls of Jericho may have fallen on Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC.

Walls of Jericho:





Perhaps the sun rose suddenly in the east Saturday the seventh day, February 17, 1241 BC.

Joshua 6:12 "And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests bore the ark of Jehovah.
15 And it happened on the seventh day, they rose early, at the dawning of the day, and went around the city seven times.
20 And the people shouted, and blew with the trumpets, and it happened when people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout. And the wall fell under it; and the people went up into the city, each man in front of him; and they captured the city."

Then half an orbit later at 11 PM Friday night, August 23, 1241 BC, at the sun may have rose in the west. Gideon attacked at the beginning of the second watch, Joshua went up all night to Gibeon. So by noon on Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC, the sun was passing west east over Gibeon where Joshua was fighting. Then Joshua may have asked God to make the sun stand still, the five day moon almost setting in the east. Thus Joshua would be aware of the moon because it did not just rise in the east, but had rose in the west and had travelled from west to east. Thus Joshua commanded both the sun and the moon because they were travelling west to east. Then there may have been 24 extra hours of day light that day.

The new year in the seventh month is celebrated as the time Joshua conquered the five kings at Gibeon. The conquest must have been in the eighth month, the sixth day of the month, August 24, 1241 BC. Thus the connection to Yom Kippur the national holyday is approximately correct.

Joshua's battle may have been on the sixth day moon. The new year on the 9th day moon. Then either the sun set in the west or the east. So Joshua may have fought on the Sabbath, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC. This same day Gideon may have fought the Midianites. Both Joshua and Gideon were faint but pursuing:

Joshua 10:19 "And stay ye not, but pursue after your enemies, and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the LORD your God hath delivered them into your hand."

Judges 8:4 "And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint, yet pursuing them."

Then perhaps Gideon returned before the sun suddenly ascended in the east Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC.

Joshua 10:29 "And Joshua passed on, and all Israel with him, from Makkedah to Libna. And he fought with Libna.
30 And Jehovah also gave it into the hand of Israel, and its king. And they struck it by the mouth of the sword, and every person in it; he did not leave a survivor in it. And he did to its king as he did to the king of Jericho.
32a And Jehovah gave Laschish into the hand of Israel and he captured it on the second day."

For Joshua to travel to Makkedah from noon at Gibeon, he must travel more than 30 miles in the six hours to sunset. Thus, given 24 more hours, Joshua would have time to get the victory before the enemy could get away and regroup.

Joshua 10:28 "And that day Joshua took Makkedah, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed, them, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho."

Not only did Joshua get to Makkedah by sunset, he also smote all the city. To do all this Joshua would need more than the 6 hours from noon to sunset.

"as he did to the king of Jericho" may refer also to a like sudden sunrise in the east on the conquest of Jericho and like victory.

The sudden sunrise of Gideon may have been on the first day of the week, Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC, as it was when Jesus rose from the dead. Thus the second day of the week was the next day, the second day.

Judges 8:13 "And Gideon, the son of Joash, returned from battle at the ascent of the sun."

Judges 14:18 "And the men of the city said unto him on the seventh day before the sun went down, What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? And he said unto them, If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle."

Samson means sunlight. The word for sun Cheres is the same as in Judges 8:13. The sun normally sets in the west. However, this Sabbath may be a type of Jesus' resurrection where the sun set in the east to soon suddenly rise in the east. Thus Samson's name "Sunlight".

Likewise the sun may have suddenly rose on Jacob at the same place of Penuel:

Genesis 32:30 "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
32:31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh."

Counting the emperors back from Yao/Joseph at 2315 BC, + 9 years + 63 years = 2387 BC = Gaoxin's first year. "In his 45th year, he conferred the prince of T'ang the appointment to be his successor." = 2343 BC = the year Jacob left Haran. Abraham left Haran 2532 BC, 190 years previous. Joseph was born in 2346 BC, 30 years before he became governor over Egypt in 2315 BC. Joseph's and Yao's sun miracle may have occurred on the full moon, April 2, 2315 BC. Then half an orbit later, October 2, 2315 BC would be the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month when the sun may move back, and forward again. October 2, 2315 BC was day 14 of cycle 60. Years 1207 BC, 507 BC and 207 BC have the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month day 14 of cycle 60 in China.

The Chinese new year sometimes began in January, sometimes in November. The new year changed from January to November about 607 BC. The new moon November 15, 606 BC a lunar month before the winter solstice December 25, 606 BC. The 17th day of the seventh Hebrew month November 13, 607 BC. Thus there may have been a sun miracle 600 years before Jesus' birth, the 17th day of the 7th lunar month, September 13, 7 BC = the reason the Chinese calendar was changed.

There may be a second sun miracle two years after the first. This would be like a sun miracle on Jesus' birth about September 12, 7 BC, and the sun return on the full moon September 15, 5 BC. Then perhaps a sun miracle November 14, 607 BC and November 16, 605 BC. Thus earth flow into and out of the reverse orbit on the anniversary date.

Also 605 BC was the 49 year jubile from 1241 BC when Jerusalem was besieged by Nebuchadnezzar. Then Jerusalem destroyed in 591 BC the 50 year jubile from 1241 BC.

Isaiah 8:4 "For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria."

Isaiah 37:30 "And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof."

The year 48 and 49 were fallow of the 49 year jubile, the third year they could sow. Also the year 49 and 50 of the 50 year jubile were fallow, the third year they could sow. When the captivity would actually come, they would not be there to sow in the third year.

Joseph would be 38 and a half years old on the full moon of April 1, the 14th day of the lunar month = passover the third day of the week and Pharaoh's birthday. Jesus was 38 and a half years old when he was crucified April 3, 33 AD from his birth September 12, 7 BC - there is no year zero.

Genesis 40:20 "And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants."

April 1, 2315 BC was Tuesday the third day of the week. April 1 was always Pharaoh's birthday = 430th year sothis. New Years had backed up 430 / 4 days 107 days from July 17 to April 1. Then the sun miracle of Yao may have been April 1, 2315 BC = the same day Joseph was taken out of prison and made governor over Egypt.

Then a few years after Joseph was born Jacob arrived in Peniel in about 2343 BC. Thus the sun suddenly ascended in Peniel about 2343 BC in emperor Gaoxin's 45th year that was an omen for him to appoint a successor.

2315 BC was 2308 years befire Jesus was born. The Sojourn of Jacob into Egypt was in 2307 BC, 2300 years before Jesus was born. Then subtract 49 year jubiles: 2309 - 490 - 490 - 490 - 490 = 349 years. 5 X 50 years = 350 years to 7 BC. Or 5 X 49 years = 245 years to 12 BC.

Just after the sun had suddenly ascended in the east in Judges 8:13:

Judges 8:17 "And he beat down the tower of Penuel, and slew the men of the city."

Then the sun may have returned Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC and this be the six day moon of king Wan's dream in the first month of the Chinese Spring and the sun may have stood still 12 hours at noon. Thus all 48 missing hours of earth's sped up reverse orbit are countered; minus 12 hours February 17, 1241 BC, plus 60 hours August 24, 1241 BC, minus 12 hours August 25, 1241 BC, plus 12 hours February 15, 1240 BC = 48 hours.

Perhaps the battle of Merom was fought on this day. Then the Israelites may have chased the Midianites into Syria, February 15, 1240 BC and this be the Assyrian Omen:

"If in Adar the sun stands still in the middle of noontime: the land will experience siege (and) misery."

The year before in February 17, 1241 BC was in Nissan. If a second month of Adar was added, February 15, 1240 BC, the next year, would be in the month of Adar. Then there would have been siege and misery as Joshua invaded Syria that day.

The new year began in September in Egypt as a countdown to redemption with the Passover March 30 - the end of the 430th year. The year end in sothis year 430 from the new sothis cycle in 2737 BC was Hebrew lunar day 14, April 1, 2307 BC. So the Exodus was the same day at the end of the 1460 year from 2741 BC, or 1456 years from 2737 BC - Sirius appeared to start the sothis cycle one day earlier from July 17 instead of July 16 = 4 years earlier, sothis cycle 1281 BC. Also, Sirius is a binary star. This means in its 50 year orbit it may appear on July 16 or July 17 depending on the phase of its orbit. Thus on July 17 1282 BC Sirius must have been visible at 4:15 AM to end the old sothis cycle. 2741 BC - 1460 = 1281 BC. Or 2737 BC - 1456 years = 1281 BC.

Likewise Jesus began his ministry in Luke 4 on Rosh Hashanah August 28, 29 AD or Yom Kippur September 9, 29 AD, as a countdown to his crucifixion, resurrection and redemption for three and a half years later.

Genesis 40:20 "And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants."

Genesis 41:1 "And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river."

The third day was Pharaoh's birthday, Friday, April 1, 2318 BC. Thus the baker was hung on a cross on the same day Friday as Jesus was crucified. The Egyptian lunar month began with the last visibility of the moon. This was March 19, 2318 BC. Then the 14th day of the month, when the Passover would be held, was Friday, April 1, 2318 BC. The Egyptians had a fixed 10 day week. So IV Shemu 30 would be July 16. Then I Shemu 1 would be March 20, 2318 BC. Then I Shemu 10 would be March 29, 2318 BC. Then the third day of that 10 day week would be April 1, 2318 BC. This calculation was not dependent on the year, but works for every year because this was the Egyptian's fixed calendar. The end of the year in 2315 BC was year 422 and was April 2, 105 days back from July 16.

April 1 was Pharaoh's birth day. Thus Joseph was made governor over Egypt after two full years in prison at the end of the two full years, on new years April 2, 2315 BC.

Pharaoh's birthday was always April 1. Thus the day Joseph became governor over Egypt, April 1, 2315 BC was on Pharaoh's birthday. Also this was the day the sun stood still in China whereupon Yao was made emperor. This was 11 days before the vernal equinox April 12, 2315 BC and thus the four stars that marked the four seasons were several hundred years more recent in precession. This is because it takes several hundred years for the equinox to back up from April 12 to April 1 in the Julian calendar. Thus the sun moved to the other side of the earth and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun and the path of the earth through the zodiac changed the stars marking the seasons to several hundred years in the future.

Then the fortieth year was from March 30, 1281 BC to the twelfth lunar month of the 40th year, December 1242 BC.

Pharaoh Merneptah died May 2, 1203 BC according to contemporary sources. However, as seen here, Merneptah died in 1281 BC. Yet the Exodus March 30, 1281 BC to May 2, 1281 BC is 32 days. 14 days is too short a time to travel to Aqaba. 32 days is just long enough for the children of Israel to travel the rough terrain more than 350 miles from Ramesses to Aqaba where they may have crossed the Red Sea. May 2, 1281 would be III Shemu 15. April 2, 1281 BC would be II Shemu 15. Thus April 2, 1281 BC the children of Israel may have crossed the Reed Sea, I1 Shemu 15.

Below you will see three anchor dates, II Shemu 25, May 14, 1338 BC and IV Peret 12, December 30, 1332 BC. Every 19 years the lunar date will match the fixed Egyptian date. So add 76 years to May 14, 1338 BC and we have the solar eclipse June 14, 1414 BC = II Shemu 25. Likewise add 76 years to December 30, 1332 BC and we have the solar eclipse January 29, 1407 BC = IV Peret 12. Merneptah died a few months short of a full ten year reign beginning in July or June. His death should be in April 1281 BC.

See: Towards an Absolute Chronology for Ancient Egypt. William McMurray (billmcmurray@aol.com)





Here you see the two eclipse paths. Remember there is no year 0, and NASA Fortran counts a year 0. Then all dates are one year further back. You can see the solar eclipse of June 14, 1414 BC is visible at sunset in Egypt. Sunset is when most people would look at the sun. The solar eclipse of January 29, 1407 BC is visible at sunrise in Egypt. This is also when many people would be looking at the sun. Thus the Egyptian chronology must be moved 76 years further back, 4 X 19 years. Then we have some of the most ancient solar eclipse records. These also predate Joshua's long day. Thus eclipse dates before Joshua's long day are where we would expect them to be.

This eclipse record for June 14, 1414 BC, II Shemu 25, as calculated here may be the earliest actual eclipse on record. The Five Millenium Canon of Solar Eclipses and Lunar Eclipses projecting to where they should be backward in time are completely correct.





Here you see the eclipse path for the solar eclipse April 11, 1411 BC, instead of March 13, 1335 BC. This is the 24 Peret IV year 5. Notice how the solar eclipse is visible from northern Egypt:





Here you see the eclipse path for the solar eclipse January 29, 1407 BC, instead of December 30, 1332 BC.





Notice how the 76 years work. There was 66 years for Ramses II and 10 years for Merneptah = the same 76 years. Thus from Merneptah's death estimated in 1205 BC, this works perfectly with 1281 BC 76 years earlier. This is why you will see the date of 1281 BC for Pharaoh Seti I's death in 1281 BC. Therefore the date of 1281 BC is correct for the date of the Exodus. Only the Pharaoh is Merneptah, not Seti I.

Moses must have been born in 1361 BC. Then the practice of killing Hebrew boys would end with the death of Seti I in 1357 BC when Moses was four years old.

This chronology means the new sothis cycle began the year of the Exodus 1281 BC. This because II Shemu 25 was June 14, 1414 BC. IV Shemu must end July 16. Thus IV Shemu ended June 14 + 5 + 30 + 30 = August 17, 1414 BC. Then back from August 17 to July 16 is 33 days. 33 X 4 = 132 years. 1414 - 132 years = 1282 BC the year of the new sothis cycle. Thus the Exodus was the beginning of the new sothis cycle of 1460 years in Egypt.

Exodus 12:40 "Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was from the four hundred and thirty years.
12:41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt."

From the 430th sothis year with the first year 2737 BC and the 430th year 2307 BC. The end of the 430th year is the end of the Sothis cycle of 1460 years. Thus the Exodus was at the end of the sothis cycle, 2741 BC - 1460 years is 1281 BC. Or rather, 2737 BC - 1456 years = 1281 BC. The end of the year in the 430th of sothis was Friday April 1, 2307 BC. Thus the Exodus the night of Friday, March 30, 1281 BC the selfsame day.

The Exodus must have been Friday March 30, 1281 BC and the crossing of the Reed Sea three days later. However, the children of Israel may have crossed the Red Sea instead several days later.

The following are Egyptian records. They are based on the end of the sothis cycle to be 1320 BC which is 40 years earlier than the actual end of the sothis cycle 1281 BC. Also, the actual chronology is 76 years earlier than these dates. 76 + 40 / 4 = 29. Thus both the day of the same Egyptian 30 day month is the same and the lunar phase, 29.5 days, of that date is the same. Thus these prove Merneptah was the pharaoh of the Exodus:

Some consider Seti I to be the Pharaoh that drowned in the Red Sea 1279 BC of Exodus because some date Ramses II to have died in 1213 BC too late a date for the Exodus because the forty years in the wilderness would bring the invasion of Canaan to 1173 BC, way too recent a date. Even so, there appears to have been a sun miracle, king Wan's dream, on that date. If so, Seti I's body must have been recovered from the sea shore. However, there is some indication Pharaoh Merneptah did die from drowning: "Dr Bucaille discovered that Merneptah had received very violent blows to several parts of his body and had suffered a massive heart attack.

Amazingly, these are the results which occur when someone dies from drowning!" "In 1898, the mummified body of Merneptah was found in the valley of Kings in Egypt. In 1975, Dr. Maurice Bucaille with other doctors received permission to examine the Mummy of Merneptah, the findings of which proved that Merneptah probably died from drowning or a violent shock which immediately preceded the moment of drowning." "In 1975, Dr. Maurice Bucaille with other doctors received permission to examine the Mummy of Merneptah, the findings of which proved that Merneptah probably died from drowning"

Then there is a possibility that Merneptah was the pharaoh of the Exodus. They may be right in that Merneptah may be the pharaoh that died when the book of Exodus begins. Probably Merneptah did not drown in the Reed Sea with his army in Exodus. Instead, the pharaoh must have been Merneptah's immediate successor. That this pharaoh is not recorded may be due to the short time he was pharaoh and the hate the Egyptians would have for him after going through the 10 plagues of Exodus and the anarchy that would develop after his death.

There were Israelite settlers already in the land, re the Merneptah Stela, and the lunar date for Ramses II 52nd year must work. This would mean Ramses II must have begun his reign 76 years earlier in 1355 BC.

Ramses II 52nd year was dated by the 28th day of the moon December 20 1228 BC = 20-XII-1228 B.C. (year 52 II prt 28). The fixed 30 day months began July 22 and December 20 began a new month on the 28th day of the moon.

"Re raises the vault the first day in the second period of peret (prt). That must be 21st December"

However, December 20, 1304 BC is also the 28th day of the moon. (More accurately December 18 is the 28th day of the Egyptian moon and the beginning of the II peret) 1279 BC (Exodus) - 1203 BC (Merneptah drowned) = 76 year gap. Then 76 + 1279 BC = 1355 BC and Ramses II's 52nd year may be 1304 BC.

Thus you see there is ample proof the Exodus was at then end of the 1460 year, one day early from 2737 BC = 1456 year, sothis cycle in 1281 BC at the time of the new year in the sojourn into Egypt in year 430, 2307 BC April 1, and thus the Exodus on the same day March 30, 1281 BC. Then also, there is much evidence that the pharaoh of the Exodus was Merneptah. After Merneptah Egypt suffered steep decline as to be expected with the destruction of the plagues of the Exodus.

Joshua's long day must have been on the Sabbath to fulfill scripture:

Hebrews 4:4 "For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time: as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not have spoken of another day.
9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God."

Joshua's long day may have been on the Sabbath, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC. Joshua could not give Israel rest that day because they were fighting to conquer the promised land. Likewise when the sun returned Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC at the battle of Merom. Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC have been counted as day six by the Chinese for king Wan's dream. Thus even the battle of Merom may have been fought on the Sabbath. Thus all three dates, the battle of Jericho, Joshua's long day, and the battle of Merom were fought on the Sabbath. Jesus could not give his disciples rest when he was in the grave on the Sabbath, Saturday, after he was crucified because his disciples were mourning his death until his resurrection early Sunday morning.

Four Sun Miracles, Net 48 Hours Long

Earth Sped Up 48 Hours







You can see in the above orbits that earth in a reverse orbit has 2 more days a year. This means earth must speed up in its reverse orbit 48 hours, 2 X 24 hour days, to keep 365.2422 days a year. Or else there would be 367.2422 days a year. That is, earth must speed up from 105,000 kilometers an hour to 105,570 kilometers an hour.

Likewise, the moon in earth's reverse orbit has two more lunar months a year. Thus the moon must slow down two orbits a reverse orbit year. There are 27.322 days a lunar orbit. Then in a reverse orbit the moon must slow down 54.644 days a year to keep the normal 12 lunar months a year. Because earth is sped up 48 hours a year, the moon must speed up 48 hours a year as well. So the moon must slow down 52.644 days in its orbit of the earth in a reverse orbit year to keep the same 12.36 lunar months a year. That is, the moon must slow down from 3,600 kilometers an hour to 3,100 kilometers an hour.

All these orbits are relative to earth. Tides etc. would be exactly the same relative to the day. Scientists measure how many tides = lunar orbits a year in sediment. They can then calculate the length of the day. However, in this controlled reverse orbit the number of lunar orbits a year is exactly the same as normal. The length of the year with long days is exactly the same as well. No evidence was left.

NASA Red Light Trigger

The space program began in earnest in 1958 so by 1969 when Harold Hill heard of the Missing Day NASA was capable of discovering it. According to Harold Hill NASA discovered it in the 1960's space mission to the moon. Simply finding a result that was an error could cause the red light to come up. Such a result could be that the sun was 180° away from where should be, like in king Wan's dream, would cause the program to halt.

Project Blue Book began in 1952 when NASA investigated UFO reports. It was terminated in 1970. Thus if NASA was doing all this research at the time the missing day story came out in 1969, all the more reason NASA would also look into the Chinese Classics. It only took me a matter of months of reading the Chinese Classics in 1999 to uncover earth's reverse orbit.

The sun returned one year after the fall of Jericho, six months after Joshua's Long Day.

"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. A phoenix duck sang on mount K'e. In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang. Afterwards a male and female phoenix went about Wan's capital with a writing in their beaks, which said: 'The emperor of Yin has no principle, but oppresses and disorders the empire. The great decree is removed: Yin cannot enjoy it longer. The powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away. The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas.'"

Joshua's six day moon in Israel was above in China, Joshua's noon sun was setting in China. Half an orbit later, 176 days later - February 15, 1240 BC - there was a six day moon also. The Chinese spring was 45 days before the spring equinox. The spring equinox in 1240 BC was April 2, 1240 BC. Thus spring was February 15, 1240 BC. Thus the lunar month beginning February 10, 1240 BC, was the first month of spring- the sun miracle February 15, 1240 BC be the first day of the 45 days to the spring equinox - the first of spring. The Chinese new year celebration of 15 days ended on the full moon, March 13, 1240 BC. King Wan's dream occurred just after sunset in China. Thus the sixth day of the month began with sunset that Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC = noon Saturday Israel time.

The planets were in Fang/Libra, the sun in Virgo - a Fall constellation. The sun is in Virgo in September. So September in no way could be called Spring! This was the position the sun, moon and planets were in prior to king Wan's long sunset. The date was the first week of the first month of Spring when the sun must be in Pisces but was in Virgo!

In the Missing Day Story, there may have been a computer check that gave an error when the wrong season of the year was entered in regards to the position of the sun. Fall was the answer the computer was looking for. Spring was entered. Then the red light. Once they obtained the date the earth was nearest the sun in 1240 BC and the Assyrian Omen date of Adar, January/February - the same date as the Chinese Spring, for the sun standing still at noon, they could calculate the missing 40 minutes on a slide rule. The Assyrian Omen was for the battle of Merom when Joshua chased the Assyrians into Sidon a year after the fall of Jericho when the sun must return. From Megiddo/Merom to Sidon is about 70 miles. Hardly is it possible to chase the Assyrians 70 miles in a normal 12 hour day.

However, with 12 more hours, this was a 24 hour day and it was very possible for Joshua to chase the Assyrians to Sidon. Both the Assyrian Omen and king Wan's dream and Joshua's long day were for 1241 BC/1240 BC. Some of the talented people employed in the mission to the moon may have been the ones to discover the missing day.

Or else I am the first to discover the model of Joshua's long day.

Orbit Shift

The position of the planets in the TheSky February 15, 1240 BC:





Top View. You can see the planets are left behind to form a conjunction in the west as the sun revolves 180 degrees counter clock wise around the earth in the evening sky above the setting sun in China:





The position sideways of earth, sun and planets before the sun moved back, February 15, 1240 BC:





The position of the earth, the sun and planets after the sun moved back, February 15, 1240 BC:





The sun at 6 PM China time was in Corvus, the planets appeared above in Scorpius February 15, 1240 BC. Thus at the start of the sun miracle the planets were in Scorpius. Then the sun in Corvus moved 180° with earth's rotation to Aquarius. Thus at the start of the long sunset at 6 PM China time the planets were above in Scorpius as they were recorded. This record in Spring is impossible without earth being in a reverse orbit of the sun having moved to the other side of the earth one year earlier. Jupiter and Saturn would stand still above the western sky and set in Aries and Taurus where they should be February 15, 1240 BC. Then earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun without a trace.

Each day in a reverse orbit must be 8 minutes shorter than it would have in a reverse orbit because earth must be sped up 2 days, 48 hours, a year to keep 365.24 days a year because rotation is against orbit. The daily amount of heat radiation from the sun must have been adjusted to leave no biological trace in this 8 minutes less a day, 4 minutes less day light a day. Other than moving the sun at near light speed, there is nothing about this present physics cannot accommodate or expect there to be physical evidence left. If the physics works and leaves no evidence and fits ancient observation, then beware if you be so inclined to mock what may very well be God's work. If NASA is saying there is no trace, no physical evidence the sun moved, they are probably right.

However, NASA may be saying there is no evidence whatsoever of the sun being moved around the earth. Then the abundance of evidence documented on this web page directly contradicts that statement. If the sun moved to the other side of the earth, earth's forward momentum would carry earth into a reverse orbit of the sun. Earth must match its elliptical orbit in reverse perfectly. Earth almost certainly could not be left to itself. The reverse orbit must have been very skillfully managed to keep the sun's same seasonal intensity, as it would have had, throughout the year at the same time speeding up the yearly orbit 48 hours to keep the 365 days in a year because rotations are against orbit. If the sun moved earth must flow into a reverse orbit.

This answers both concerns: Earth is rotating at 1,000 mph at the equator and rushing at 70,000 mph around the sun.

You will read here of many reverse zodiacs/orbits. Some people have a hard time believing God could move the solar system around the earth. Well, let them. This is the truth, and if they won't believe it, they are responsible. The evidence on this page is reliable.

God has completely hidden these sun miracles. Earth's seasons continued the same in the reverse orbits as in the natural orbit.

Genesis 8:22 "While earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

Tilt of earth's orbit to keep earth in the same season.

Here you see the solar system's flat plane of orbit:





Here you see how when the sun drops down 18° the inclination of orbit must drop as well:





We can see God kept all these promises at the same time moving the sun 180° around the earth and a little up or down to keep earth in the same season. Moving the sun around the earth at the same distance means there would be no change to earth's temperature. Day and night depended on where the sun was and seeing earth continued to rotate day and night continued. Day was when the sun appeared. Thus if the sun moved 180° east generally day/night was 12 hours longer or if the sun moved 180° west day/night was 12 hours shorter. Earth continued to rotate exactly as it would have untouched. Moreover, 12 hours day light of a normal day was a sign of the shortness of life. Nevertheless, there were many days of sun miracles in history with 12 hours more day light, or 36 hours, or 60 hours, or even 84 hours, more day light.

Some will say this is not in the Bible. My response is, Oh yes, it is. Many of these days are in the Bible. And the Chinese record sun miracles on the same day and date as those in the Bible. The model of reverse orbit is in the Bible:

Joshua 10:13b "the sun stood still in the midst of heaven for about a whole day"

This verse literally reads the sun stood still from the half of heaven for about a whole day. This means the sun revolved around the earth as earth rotated from half way back to half way to stand still in the sky for 24 hours and earth's forward momentum carried earth into, and finally out of a reverse orbit of the sun.

Reverse Orbit







The zodiac progresses normally on the left: Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpius, Sagittarius, Capricorn..
The zodiac progresses in reverse on the right: Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpius, Libra, Virgo..
You can see not only does the zodiac progress in reverse in a reverse orbit, but also jumps six zodiac constellations. The inner planets Mercury and Venus and also Mars must also jump six constellations. The Chinese zodiac progresses in reverse perhaps because there were so many reverse orbits the Chinese thought they were normal.

This research would not have been necessary if only people read their Bibles. You cannot pick up the Bible without reading at least some hint of sun miracles. Most people will immediately respond that God stopped the earth from rotating. However, God stopped the sun not the earth. The sun may have risen in the west descending in the east. Thus when Joshua asked God to stop the sun He must have slowed his movement of the sun so it appeared to stand still in the noon day sky.

NASA's Red Light

A form letter from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt MD 20771:

We know nothing of Mr. Harold Hill and in no way can corroborate the "lost day" reference in the article.

The effects of epoch events such as leap year, Babylonian calendar sequential perturbations, etc., are considered in the development of long-term-running computer programs. We are limited somewhat in that many of our calculations terminate with Babylonian calendar events (4,000 years ago), but this has never given programmers any unexpected difficulties.

Although we make use of planetary positions as necessary in the determination of spacecraft orbits on our computers, I have not found that any "astronauts and space scientists at Greenbelt" were involved in the "lost day" story attributed to Mr. Hill.

Thank you for your interest.

Sincerely,

Edward Mason, Chief
Office of Public Affairs

This may be the red light in the Missing Day Story. NASA computers often put up a red light and had to be seen to:

Red light in NASA computer room from 50 years NASA.

Yes, NASA made use of planetary positions. Yes, they were going back 4,000 years. All they would have to do was open the Chinese Classics and come to this record of king Wan's dream in Spring. Right away the computer would put up a red light that the sun cannot be in Leo in Spring! The six day moon directly above and the conjunction of the five planets in the west in Fang/Libra at sunset could not have been seen with the sun in Pisces. This five planet conjunction in Fang/Libra meant the sun was in Leo which is 180° from the sun in Pisces in January/February of the Chinese spring. Some have noted the discrepancy and tried to explain it away. Perhaps they misnamed Fall, Spring! This cannot be explained away.

Put this on record and take note: king Wan's dream gives the calculations of the Missing Day of Joshua as described in the Missing Day Story. The Chinese Spring was always counted with the lunar month in January/February/March.

Earth's normal orbit makes the sun appear in Pisces in spring. A few thousand years ago the sun was in Airies in Spring. Now it is moving from Pisces to Aquarius. Thus the song the age of Aquarius.

This record of king Wan's dream was all that was needed to uncover Joshua's long day of 24 hours and 40 minutes.

Chinese Spring was calculated 45 days before the Spring equinox, April 2, 1240 BC, 90 days marking the total season. A computer would state the obvious: the sun had been in Virgo at sunset and moved 180° to Pisces, standing still below the horizon, then rising a little in the west over a 12 hour period. Thus king Wan was clothed with the sun and the moon. Jupiter and Saturn were supposed to have been in Aries and Taurus 1240 BC. Taurus is 180° away from Fang/Libra! Mercury is one of these five planets depicted in Fang/Libra. Mercury orbits very close to the sun. How could Mercury be in Fang/Libra 180° away from the sun in Pisces and still be next to the sun? No way! No way could Mercury be in conjunction with the other planets in Scorpio.

Together with a six day moon this record seems to depict the planets in the west just below the moon and just above the sun at sunset.

A computer service technician from NASA who started work just after the Missing Day Story came out emailed me from a newsgroup in about 2000 that these computers often put up a red light and had to be seen to. He often wondered what could have triggered the red light perhaps in the same room he worked only a few years previous. Yigael Yadin estimated Hazor was burned 1266 - 1233 BC while doing excavations there in 1958 and 1968. All the spacemen would have to do is look for a five planet conjunction at sunset for this period. The second long day of Joshua at Merom February 15, 1240 BC when Joshua chased the Midianites into Syria as far as Sidon which was more distance travelling than 12 hours or 6 hours of day light would allow.

This sun miracle in February was king Wan's dream occurring at the same time as the battle of Merom. They may have connected king Wan's dream to the year of Joshua's long day 1241 BC/1240 BC. Then the computer would tell them this conjunction in the first month of the Chinese spring and on the 6th day of the moon and be in Aries and Taurus could only be February 15, 1240 BC. Most likely the planets were moved out of the way of the sun as it moved 180°. Thus the five planets appeared in conjunction in Fang/Scorpio when the stars appeared. The sun sets at 5 PM in February 7. So, the sun standing still 90° away at noon in Israel would mean a starry night in China, till the sun retreated 10°.

Next they would see the conjunction was recorded in Fang/Scorpio 180° away, and right away realize the five planets had moved 180° with the sun from Fang/Scorpio. With the sun 180° away they would discover the reverse orbit. Once they discovered the reverse orbit, they would discover earth must speed up 48 hours a year, 24 hours in a half orbit.

While they were looking at Assyrian Omens they would find the omen:

An Assyrian Omen: "If in Adar the sun stands still in the middle of noontime: the land will experience siege (and) misery."

Adar is January/February. February 15, 1240 BC is probably when the sun stood still at noon time for Joshua at Merom in Joshua 11, and perhaps Judges 4 and 5; and this be king Wan's dream. Then the sun may have stood still at Gibeon for Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC. Then the sun must return on the same date one year later after the fall of Jericho February 17, 1241 BC at the battle of Merom February 15, 1240 BC where there was siege and misery. The day February 15, 1240 BC could have lasted 12 hours longer and Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC, 23:20 hours longer. Thus the sun may have stood still when it returned as well when Joshua chased the Midianites into Syria. And thus it became an Assyrian omen.

And thus NASA had all the records it needed to find the missing day and the remaining missing 40 minutes with the help of the Bible. These were scientists on a mission. All they were looking for is anything astronomical. The next book after Joshua is Judges. Boling wrote that Joshua and Judges began at the same time. Their day was not done till the 40 minutes were found. Once it was found they did not need to record their findings. Their mission was to find problems to the space program. And since this problem had been solved and posed no risk to the space program it did not need to be reported.

A large heavy pendulum when swinging, will move back and forth in a line that rotates 360° in 24 hours. Thus earth did not stop rotating when God made the sun to stand still for Joshua. A pendulum that day would also rotate 360° actually standing still in the same line, earth moving underneath.

Research on exo solar systems far from ours, show Ch'aoutic behaviour from the gravity tugs of the planets on each other. Our solar system is much more stable and thus is unusual. Nevertheless, God must have moved the sun around the earth many times.

Buzz Aldrin “We went all the way from Earth to the Moon and back to Earth within a half a second of the time allotted by our flight plan.”

Movements in space can be precisely calculated. The other part to consider is the tens of millions of tons of energy to instantly move the sun upwards of 40 million miles per hour. Only God has that power and skill.

How do you rate this article?



In consideration of all these things, it reminds us of the spiritual truth that God will move heaven and earth to save one soul. How about you?
