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 about 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."
There was a story put out by Harold Hill that NASA had discovered this missing day. NASA answers the question on their website
"Can the event that took place in Joshua 10:13 be confirmed, for example by counting the positions of heavenly bodies backward in time?"
"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 possibility God moved the sun around the earth has been a very rewarding research project. More realistic than stopping earth's rotation and starting it again. If God moved the sun halfway around the earth the sun could stand still in the middle of the sky for 12 hours for Joshua and this would be a day as in the Hebrew word Yom. However, here you will see God must have moved the sun around the earth 360° for the sun to stand still in the sky for 24 hours. The Hebrew for "the sun stood still in the midst of heaven" really states "the sun stood still from the half of heaven". That is, the sun stood still in the sky from one half of heaven while earth continued to rotate 360° back to the same half of the night sky. The sun had also risen in the west that night.
So, comparing the night before, they would notice the night sky was 180° different the night after Joshua's long day. Now the sun is now on the other side of the earth. Earth must continue in its forward momentum now in reverse around the sun. Earth must keep the same distance from the sun as it normally would. Earth must also keep the same number of days, 365 days, in a year. Earth really rotates 366 times a year. We lose a day because our orbit is with rotation. Now if we go in reverse around the sun orbit is against rotation and at the same velocity of 67,000 miles per hour we would have one more day than the 366 rotations a year, 367 days. In order to have 365 days a year earth's orbit must be sped up by two days or 48 hours.
Earth already speeds up and slows down in our elliptical orbit of the sun. So speeding up earth's orbit would cause no noticeable effect. Next the sun must move 180 degrees again and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. For earth to keep in the same season both times the sun must move up or down to keep the same inclination to earth's surface as it would have had. Earth is tilted 23.5 degrees from the vertical. This is what makes our seasons as earth travels around the sun each year. The next time the sun can move back up or back down and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun without a trace is half an orbit later. Now if God wanted to leave no missing time we now have the mechanics to do this. If the sun moved 360° east to stand still for Joshua this is 24 hours of elapsed time.
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:
Joshua 10:8 and 12,13
2 Kings 20:9-11
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 15, 1241 BC. 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. 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. Afterwards, the sun 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.
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: At first my thought was if God moved the sun moved 180° east to stand still in the sky for Joshua, the sun moved to the other side of the earth, which takes 12 hours standing still in the sky, and earth flowed into a reverse orbit. However, the first sun miracle by Joshua may be the fallen walls of Jericho, perhaps Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC. Then the sun may have ascendend suddenly in the east at 10:30 PM Friday night for an early attack on Jericho. This might be February 17, 1241 BC and half an orbit from then, 188 days is 10:30 PM 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 17, 1241 BC is a quarter orbit, 91 days, after earth's nearest approach to the sun November 15, 1242 BC. Over the past 7000 years earth's nearest approach of the sun has shifted from September to January.
Thus the half orbit from 12 PM February 17, 1241 BC, to 10:30 PM Friday, August 23, 1241 BC (actually the sun rising in the west would begin Saturday, August 24, 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. 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. It is 188 days not 187.5 days because the sun is on the other side of earth, so from 10 AM February 17, 1241 BC to 10:30 PM August 24, 1241 BC is 188 days. - of 365 days, 188/365.2422 X 48, correlating to 24 hours and 42 minutes missing time. We may have found the missing 40 minutes in the missing day story.
Realistically the shortest half orbit would also be the more sped up half. 12 PM August 24, 1241 BC to 12 PM 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 = 23 hours 20 minutes missing time applied to the 177.5 days shorter half orbit.
Here you see the sun moved 180° west February 17, 1241 BC for a sudden sunrise on Jericho on the seventh day and victory for Joshua. Then six months later, the sun rose at 10:30 PM in the west for Gideon at the second watch and while Joshua and Israel climbed from Gilgal to Gibeon. Then the sun travelling west east at the normal rate it travels east west, the sun was in the noon position and Joshua asked God to make the sun stand still in the sky. So the sun stood still in the noon position, not for 24 hours, but for 23:20 hours, or 350°. Thus the sun stood still in the middle of the sky for about a whole day of 24 hours, 23:20 hours. Then the six day moon of Joshua set in the east, then the sun set in the east, to the 3 AM position. So the sun had moved 45° to rise in the west, then 180° to noon, then 350° to stand still, then 180° to set, then 45° to the 3 AM position. Then the sun suddenly and brilliantly rose in the east 180° to the 3 PM position.
Next the sun had to return after six months in this second reverse orbit. So the sun returned at noon February 15, 1240 BC Israel time. Thus Joshua had the victory in Joshua 11 at Hazor and 12 more hours daylight to chase the Midianites into Sidon, Lebanon. The sun must stand still in the Israel noon sky for 12 hours. However, the second half orbit was 24:40 hours of missing time of the sped up earth. Thus 40 minutes had to be accounted for. So the sun must move 190° rather than just 180°. That is the sun must rise on the western horizon on China for king Wan from 6 PM China time to 5:20 China time February 15, 1240 BC. The sun sets about 5 PM February 15, 1240 BC. Thus king Wan would see the stars of Fang/Scorpius and the planets Jupiter and Saturn in them and the inner three planets close to the sun. The starry sky would brighten and the sun glow in the west and the six day moon above. Thus king Wan dreamt he was clothed in the sun and the moon.
Thus also the sun retreated a further 10° just as in the missing day story. Thus the 40 missing minutes are accounted for.
II Kings 20:5 "Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus, saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.
20:6 And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
20:8 And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?
20:9 And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?
20:10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.
20:11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz."
2 Kings 20:8-10 in Hebrew MP3
The passover the full moon Sunday, March 31, 703 BC. The third day was Tuesday, the third day of the week.
Then the sun pass forward ten steps = ten hours, passing east to west and rising brilliantly in the east a few hours after setting in the east and Hezekiah be healed.
Joshua's long day should see the sun rise in the west and set in the east just as it did for Hezekiah. That is, the sun was moving west to east, and at noon Joshua asked God to stop the sun because it was moving! Then the sun proceeded to set in the east. Thus, the connection to Hezekiah both in the reverse sun ten steps = ten hours = the whole sky, and in the 10 degrees that it all added up.
Judges 5:20 "They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera."
The "stars in their courses fought against Sisera" may have refered to the sun now back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. "in their courses" is a turn pike. Thus the stars in their courses were like a turnpike that did not let Sisera through.
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."
Then on Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC the sun suddenly ascended in the east to start a second half reverse orbit.
Judges 8:13 "And Gideon the son of Joash, returned from battle before the sun ascended."
That is Gideon returned after chasing the Midianites 60 miles on foot from 10:30 PM till sunrise. The word for before, Mahaleh - same as the feminine for steps on a sundial as in Hezekiah's Sign when the sun retreated 10 steps (not degrees) in 2 Kings 20:9, means ascending an elevation. Thus perhaps the confusion with Hezekiah's Sign when Hezekiah was asked if the shadow should go forward 10 steps or backwards 10 steps to the beginning, the horizon. Then if the shadow were to go ahead the sun would suddenly move west. Just as it may have Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC, suddenly ascending in the east. Probably the sun rose in the west at 10:30 PM August 24, 1241 BC, at the beginning of the second watch for Gideon, then to stand still in the sky for 24 hours at noon. Then to descend to below the eastern horizon. The first watch at 8 PM, the second at 10:30 PM and the third at 2 AM. 3 hours a watch. This would mean the sun should stand still again 12 PM February 15, 1240 BC in the month of Adar. Then the Assyrians would record this omen "If in Adar the sun stands still at noon time the land will experience siege and misery". Because this second sun miracle of the sun standing still in Adar, February, was in Syria at the battle of Merom, Joshua 11.
These movements would mean there would be no net missing time after February 15, 1240 BC. The long days must add up to the 48 hours of missing time in that year. Then - 12 hours February 17, 1241 BC, + 60 hours August 24, 1241 BC - just the sun moved 2 X 360° and 180° east - Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC lasted 36 hours from sunrise in the west to sunset in the east, - 12 hours August 25, 1241 BC and + 12 hours February 15, 1240 BC = 48 hours.
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. 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. 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.
"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. This discrepancy does not seem however to trouble their minds at all, and we may safely leave it unexplained."
The Chinese Classics III p.95
Here you can see spring is in the east! For the sun to be in Scorpius in spring, right away we have a reverse orbit!
Today Scorpius is in November/December intead of September because of the precession of the equinoxes = 360° in 26,000 years. Thus, in the 4,300 years since emperor Yao in 2300 BC is equal to the slight change of the zodiac of two months.
The sun in Scorpius in spring, the sun in spring would normally in 2300 BC would be in Taurus, = 180° difference; this means the sun had to have moved to the other side of earth, and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun on this full moon, April 1, 2315 BC, or on this new moon, April 1, 2316 BC, when the sun stood still ten days and Yao became emperor of China and Joseph governor of Egypt.
From the jubile year 2322 BC are 50 year jubiles to Jesus' fulfillment when he read Isaiah 61 in Luke 4 on Yom Kippur, September 9, 29 AD. Then seven years to 2315 BC the first year of plenty and seven more years of famine from 2308 BC.
Both precession of the equinoxes, one month in 1000 years from 2315 BC to 1240 BC, and the sun miracle two months before the spring equinox; means Scorpius was in the east in Yao's lunar zodiac, and that the sun was in Virgo on king Wan's dream = Scorpius straight up at sunset. Three months of the 12 months in a year equals a 90° difference in Scorpius in the east 2315 BC and Scorpius directly above February 15, 1240 BC.
February 16, 1240 BC the winter sun in Hunan China, at the 30th parallel, rose to 43° above the horizon. The moon orbits higher in winter, and the moon and Saturn together rose to 54° above the horizon. Thus, the moon and Saturn high above at sunset in China at the time of king Wan's dream. Also, there was five hours between sunset at 5 PM to when Saturn/Moon would set at 10 PM = enough distance for the sun to set and the stars come out and the moon and Saturn appear above in China in fang/scorpius.
The exact measurement is February 16 = 365 days from February 17, 1241 BC because of February 29, 1241 BC was leap year; to the equinox April 1 = one and a half months. 2315 BC to 1240 BC = 1000 years, 10 days. All told = two months. The lunar zodiac was approximate - some lunar signs that should be 1 / 28 are as large as some zodiac signs that are 1 / 12. Thus, Scorpius/Fang complete 90° in comparison of the zodiac of Yao in 2315 BC and king Wan in 1240 BC.
The sun moved 180° back Saturday, February 15, or Sunday, February 16, 1240 BC, and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit as described in detail in king Wan's dream: The sun must have been moved one year before, and earth flow into the reverse orbit, February 17, 1241 BC on the seventh day, and sudden sunrise, at the fall of the wall of Jericho, and the sun move back one year later and earth flow out of the reverse orbit on king Wan's dream, February 15, 1240 BC. Again, spring is in the east, the sun is in Virgo in 1241 BC and not in Pisces, again 180° apart. Thus the reverse orbit of the earth is described again!
"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. In the first month of spring (January 20 - February 20), 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, The Chinese Classics.
The setting sun in China would be the noon sun in Israel. The phoenixes were the Feng bird which carried the sun when there was a sun miracle. The first month of spring was in February. Then how could the Chinese even see the five planets at 5 AM when Fang/Libra/Scorpius rose? Was this not rather a 12 hour long sunset beginng with the moon in Scorpius overhead, and with the five planets in Scorpius 6 hours later when it set in the west, all in the western quadrant of the sky. The noon sun in Israel is the setting sun in China. And when the stars appeared the five planets were centered around Scorpius/Fang as God moved them out of the way of the sun. Then the sun must move 180° with earth's rotation and be on the other side of earth and earth flow out of a reverse orbit.
This may have been what made the computer put up a red light.
Red light in NASA computer room from 50 years NASA, taken about 1969 at the time of the missing day story. After all the sun cannot be in Leo/Virgo in Spring! King Wan started conquering China on that day of battle which began his small kingdom, the 12th year of the emperor Wending, February 15, 1240 BC.
"In Wending's 12th year, phoenixes collected on mount K'e." Note: This was the first year of king Wan.
If Emperor Wu his son, reigned from 1174 BC to start the Zhou dynasty according to the reigns given in the Bamboo Books of the Chinese Classics. There it is written that there are two cycles of 60 years missing since emperor Wu. This 120 years added to 1054 BC is Wu at 1174 BC. Further, the lunar eclipse in king Wan's 35th or 36th year on day 13 of 60 is September 23, 1205 BC.
A lunar eclipse happens on day 15 of the Chinese lunar month. This lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC was on day 15 of the lunar month, but also, September 23, 1205 BC was day 13 of cycle 60. Meaning king Wan's first year as king began with the sun miracle in king Wan's dream 35 years previous on February 15, 1240 BC on the six day moon, first month of spring. Chinese emperors needed a sun miracle to claim their divine right to be king, to a new dynasty:
"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 be the lunar eclipse visible just after sunset in China September 23, 1205 BC on day 13 of cycle 60. Thus king Wan's first year 35 years earlier at the sun miracle, phoenixes, of king Wan's dream.
"In his (Emperor 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."
However, 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, day 1 of cycle 60. 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.
Genesis 8:4 "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat."
Thus perhaps this verse in Genesis points to Jesus' birth on the 17th lunar day of the seventh month, September 13, 7 BC.
The lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC is from NASA's Five Millennium Canon of Lunar Eclipses.
The usual counting of days of 60 is from January 7, 1500 BC:
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.
However, the actual counting = the same days of 60, is from the new moon January 26, 2636 BC:
From Huangdi's 20th year on the first day of the first month, January 26, 2636 BC, began the day of 60 and the year of 60.
From Huangdi's 50th year in 2607 BC the phoenix appeared = sun miracle = Abraham's birth, the 17th day of the 17th month, October 19, 2607 BC = the fall equinox = 2600 years to Jesus' birth perhaps September 12, 7 BC, also the 17th day of the 7th month.
Subtract the year from 2636 BC, multiply by 365.25, omit the remainder, divide by 60, multiply by 60, from January 26 add 5 years to January 31, and keep adding to the date, and you have your day of cycle 60.
From January 26 day 1 2636 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.
The following day was day 13! The day was counted from sunset, so this lunar eclipse occurred on day 13.
"In his, emperor Te-sin's, 23rd year, he imprisoned the chief of the west in Yew-le."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.110
Te-sin's first year was 1227 BC. His 23rd year = 1205 BC. "In his 3d year a sparrow produced a hawk." - at the end of the fourteenth 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 according to Deuteronomy 31:10 in the seventh month of the fourteenth year. This may have been very similar to Jesus speaking from Isaiah 61 in Luke 4, August, 18, 30 AD.
In the time of Hwang-te (2656 BC), 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 Huangdi's 20th year 2636 BC: "When he was sitting in a boat in the Yuen-hoo, above its junction with the Lo, there came together phoenixes, male and female."
This union of the sun and moon was the first kea-tze year and the first kea-tze day, kea-tze means number one, on the new moon when the sun and moon moved 180° back to Pisces and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit, January 27, 2636 BC. This prophesy was for the new moon to occur on day one of sixty when the sun and moon should move back 180° carried by the red phoenix. Thus all Chinese dates of year 60 and day 60 date from January 27, 2636 BC.
"In his, emperor Te-sin's, 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."
"On the kea-tsze day (day 1 of cycle 60), in the last month of autumn, a red bird came to Fung with a writing in its beak, which it put down at the door of Ch'ang."
The sun miracle must have occurred in Emperor Te-sin's 22nd year, September 21, 1207 BC, two years before king Wan made this statement "eclipse is untimely" perhaps because of the sun miracle at the time the lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC when the sun returned two years after the sun moved on day one of sixty, September 21, 1207 BC. This kea-tsze day is day one. Then his 23rd year was in this 1205 BC when king Wan was imprisoned, perhaps just after his declaration, "eclipse is untimely" because there was a sign from Heaven, sun miracle, that day when the sun returned at the time of the lunar eclipse.
Te-sin's first year was 1227 BC. Then his 23rd year was in this 1205 BC when king Wan was imprisoned, perhaps just after his declaration, "eclipse is untimely". Imprisonment would be likely upon king Wan's statement.
"The State Archives of Assyria Volume VIII report 310 says, "If in Adar (February 20 - March 20) the sun stands still in the middle of noontime: the land will experience siege (and) misery."
The only time the land really experienced siege and misery was when Joshua conquered it. The other time was when Sennacherib invaded the area in 700 BC. This omen was recorded in 700 BC. Nevertheless, 540 years earlier there was seige and missery as well. A parallel may then have been drawn from Joshua's conquest into Syria and the sun standing still at noon, and the sun standing still at noon in the time of Hezekiah. Thus the sun would retreat from the west to the eastern dawn position for Hezekiah. Then perhaps 6 months earlier, or 6 month after, the sun stand still at noon for 12 hours and move 180° to the other side of earth and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun or out of a reverse orbit of the sun.
Other than the wrong verse quoting Hezekiah's Sign and containing the same word Mahaleh the Missing Day Story and the 10° of 40 minutes applied to king Wan's dream, this adds up quite well.
There is a book by Prof. C A Totten of Yale, written in 1890....
Professor Totten wrote of a fellow professor, an accomplished astronomer, who made the strange discovery that the earth was twenty-four hours out of schedule! ... Prof. Totten challenged this man to investigate the question of the inspiration of the Bible. ... Some time later ... his colleague replied: "In the tenth chapter of Joshua, I found the missing twenty-four hours accounted for. Then I went back and checked up on my figures, and found that at the time of Joshua there were only 23 hours and 20 minutes lost." ... the astronomer ... read on until he came to the 38th chapter of the prophet Isaiah (NOTE by JEK: this recounts the same episode as 2 Kings 20).... So the accuracy of the book was established to the satisfaction of this exacting critic.
This story Totten probably made up must have been what Harold Hill thought closely paralleled what he had heard NASA discover. A book containing Totten's story was published in 1968. Thus, many have totally disbelieved the NASA Missing Day Story as made up by Mr. Hill. However, there is no way around these calculations of mine that show 23:20 hours of elapsed time and a net of 40 missing minutes from the 24 hours. So the NASA scientists may very well have discovered the same mechanics and Harold Hill heard the part that sounded like Totten's account. 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.
My research does not depend on the NASA proof. All my evidence and calculations can be found at sunnyokanagan.com/joshua/index.html Andrew Bennett
Because earth's orbit was sped up 48 hours that year, the sun must also move east a net of 48 hours of long days = the sun standing still in the sky a total of 48 hours, 2 X 360° for there to be no net missing time.
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.
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.
"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, The Chinese Classics.
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 Febuary 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!
Here you can see the planets, moon and sun the night of king Wan's dream. Note the moon in faint letters is just below Saturn both in Taurus = opposite, that is 180° away from, Scorpius/Fang, thus the conjunction in Scorpius at dark after sunset in China before God moved the sun and moon and planets = the moon in both the sixth lunar sign from the 1st, of 28 signs = of 28 zodiac constellations, and sixth lunar day the moon beside Saturn = where they were after the sun moved back = were 180° away in Scorpius and now in Taurus.
Saturn must move 180° with the sun and Saturn was just where king Wan said the planets were in Scorpius at the start of the sun miracle. Outer planets Jupiter and Mars are in Pisces with the sun. In the start of the sun miracle Saturn should be 180° from where it normally would be in Taurus and that equals this Scorpius/Fang in king Wan's dream. Likewise the moon beside Saturn straight up at sunset. The sun must have moved last, and the planets moved first. Then Jupiter and Mars, and Venus and Mercury would appear in Scorpius with Saturn and the moon when the sun set and the stars came out in China.
Here again you can see Saturn and the Moon above. Jupiter is near Saturn, but blinded by the sun from earth.
In the timing of the sun's movement, the sun's light takes 8 minutes to reach earth, and 80 minutes from Saturn to earth, and 40 minutes from Jupiter to earth. Thus, in the first 80 minutes Saturn appear in Scorpius before moving to Taurus. Jupiter may have been moved more than 40 minutes ahead of the sun, and the same time as Saturn. Then the light from Jupiter soon would appear by Saturn in Scorpius above after sunset in China when the stars came out.
The stars come out after sunset. Sunset in China on February 16, 1240 BC = 34 days to March 20 and 10 more days to the equinox that year March 31, 1240 BC, 44 days to spring = the sun set at the spring equinox at 6 PM. Thus, sunset about 5:30 PM at the 30th latitude and dark and the stars come out by 6:00 PM = the timing is just right to fit king Wan's dream.
Jupiter being moved ahead of the sun would appear also in Scorpius because of this 80 minutes for light to get from Saturn to earth. The other three planets, Mars, Venus and Mercury must all move 180° also out of the way and ahead of the sun and also appear in Scorpius with Saturn.
The timing of the conjunction of the planets in king Wan's dream is perfect. This must mean the conjunction of Saturn and the first quarter moon and both mean Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter were moved before the sun = All five planets appear in Scorpius/Fang after sunset in China.
Like the sun and the moon, the five planets must each have an angel that moved them 180°.
Isaiah 48:13 "Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together."
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 daylight 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 daylight, or 36 hours, or 60 hours, or even 84 hours, more daylight.
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.
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.
The key is God moved the sun to the other side of the earth, and earth flowed into a reverse orbit. Then half a year later, and a full year later, God moved the sun back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit without a trace. There was no trace, the polar regions of the moon were not exposed to sun. The daily coral layer of long days and shrort days appeared normal. The solar and lunar tides matched the day they occurred as they would have normally. There was not even any net missing time from the long and short days.
