Joshua's Missing Day: The Results Compared with the Standards

The key is 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 no 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.'"

Let’s look at the words “In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang.” Fang is Libra beside Scorpio. The moon and planets are above in Scorpio = the setting sun in Virgo in spring!

The only note that has been said about this, is that the Chinese counted Spring from the Fall. But the record above states: "In the first month of spring".

Chinese Spring was counted after the winter solstice, January, February, usually. The rule was Spring began 45 days before the Spring Equinox. In 1240 BC the Spring Equinox was April 1.

45 days before this is February 15, 1240 BC.

The sun was on the opposite side of the earth that day.

It could only be on the opposite side of the earth if the sun had moved 180 degrees around the earth and earth had flowed in its forward momentum into a reverse orbit of the sun.

The planets have to move out of the way of the sun. Thus they appear in conjunction.

The beginning of the sunset, the sun is in Virgo, the planets moving in conjunction in the western sky, Fang = Scorpio directly above as the sun stood still in Virgo in the sunset position in the west. The sun stood still at the sunset position as the sun moved 180° back to Pisces by standing still at sunset for 12 hours. The sun was sitting just below the western horizon the whole time. Thus king Wan turned in for the night at sunset, then 12 hours later he got up in his hight clothes and the sun was still at sunset and the half moon still directly above. In that period the sun had set enough for the stars to come out. This first quarter moon stayed directly above for 12 hours. Then the planets set in the west and the moon set in the west.

The Phoenix is the Angel that flies to the sun to carry it to the other side of the earth. The male phoenix flies to the sun to move the sun, the female phoenix fliest to the moon to move the moon.

The Exodus was March 30, 1281 BC at the end of the sothis cycle. You can see my figures moving the end of the sothis cycle forward 40 years from 1320 BC to 1281 BC.

These calculations for the end of the sothis cycle in 1281 BC are real numbers. Merneptah is the pharaoh just before he died at the Exodus in 1281 BC.

40 years later Joshua led the Israelites into the Promised Land of Canaan in 1241 BC.

King Wan made the statement:

"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.'"

This is September 23, 1205 BC day 13 of the 60 day cycle on the full moon of the lunar eclipse.

35 years back from 1205 BC is 1240 BC = king Wan's first year.

Joshua’s long day then should have been August 24, 1241 BC.

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

Wending’s 12th year was 1240 BC, with the corrected Chinese chronology with all my work shown.

The sun miracle, phoenixes, of king Wan’s dream in his first year was in the same year as Joshua’s long day, February 15, 1240 BC.

The sun may have rose suddely in the east the day Joshua conquered Jericho, Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC. Then earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. Half an orbit later the sun may move to the other side of earth again and back for Joshua's long day. Then one year after February 17, 1241 BC the sun may move back February 15, 1240 BC and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun without a trace.

The pattern of sun miracles that year can be worked out by simple 180 degree sun movements.

Then earth must be in a reverse orbit for a year.

For there to be 365 days in a reverse orbit of the sun, earth must speed up its orbit two days, 48 hours.

For time to be the same after the reverse orbit, long days must add up to 48 hours to make up for the 48 hours of missing time.

The sun can move back at the half orbit point. Then move to the other side of earth and earth flow back into the reverse orbit the next day. Then one complete year after the first sun movement the sun may move 180° back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit without a trace. Thus earth can flow out of and into a reverse orbit of the sun.

When the sun moved with earth's rotation to stand still in the sky, it could move 12 hours, 180°, or 24 hours, 360°.

The 48 hours applied to the first half orbit is about 24 hours. Earth's orbit is slightly elliptical. Thus the missing time to be applied in the first half orbit is about 24 hours. Thus we have the basics in determining Joshua's missing day of about 24 hours.

The "Missing Day" Story

The following article was copied from the "Evening Star", a newspaper located in Spencer, Indiana.

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 1,000 years from now. We have to know this so we don't send a satellite up and have it bump into something later on in its orbit. 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, "It's perfect." The head of operations said, "What's wrong?" "Well, we have found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time." They scratched their heads and tore their hair. There was no answer. One religious fellow on the team said, "You know, one time when I was in Sunday School they talked about the sun standing still."

They didn't believe him, but they didn't have any other answer, 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 anybody who has "common sense." (Joshua 10: 8-14).

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

The space men 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 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits.

This religious fellow also remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said the sun went BACKWARDS. The space men told him he was out of his mind. But, they got out the Book and read these words in II Kings. Hezekiah, on his death-bed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for the sign of proof. Isaiah said, "Do you want the sun to go ahead ten degrees? Hezekiah said, "It's nothing for the sun to go ahead ten degrees, but let the shadow return backward ten 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 II Kings (II Kings 20:1-11) make the missing 24 hours the space travelers had to log in the logbook as being the missing day in the universe.

Isn't that amazing!!
