The 40 days after Jonah's fish = 3 days of testimony then ended with 37 days of waiting.
The 40 days after Jesus' Cross = 3 days of testimony then ended with 37 days of waiting.
The Temple ended in destruction in 70 A.D. 37 years after Pentecost.
The Church will end in destruction in 2025... 37 years after Pentecost.
Our Final Great Tribulation will end (23 + 14) with 37 years.
The age of Creation ending in the year 2025 = 13,037 years.
NOAH'S FLOOD DURATION
There are two ancient calendars concerning God's people within the Bible.
1. The Biblical calendar
2. The Hebrew calendar
The Hebrew Calendar
The Hebrew calendar was a lunar calendar system utilized by the Israelites after they came out of Egypt. It consisted of 12 months of 30 days each = 360 days per year.
The Biblical Calendar
The ancient Biblical calendar was a calendar system utilized before and after the Flood. It was the calendar system that the Lord utilized as He detailed all the days of Noah. We do not have any additional information concerning this ancient calendar. We can only assume that it too was a lunar system consisting of 12 months of 30 days each which would also equal 360 days per year.
If our assumption is correct then 12 months of 30 days would equal 360 days.
The Flood began on the 17th day of the second month. One year later the Flood ended on the 27th day of the 2nd month. This is 10 additional days.
360 days + 10 additional days = 370 days.
(Gen 7:11 [KJV])
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
(Gen 8:14 [KJV])
And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
The whole duration of Noah's Flood came to completion at the end of 370 biblical calendar days.
THE FULL DURATION OF JESUS' JOURNEY
From the time Jesus was proclaimed the Lamb of God until His ascension into Heaven on the 40th day after the Cross equalled four distinct periods of time.
John 21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
Acts 1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.
These periods of time exhibited a time of testimony (before the Cross), no testimony (the Cross), testimony (after the Cross) and no testimony (waiting to be ascended to Heaven). These last two periods of after the Cross and waiting for His ascension equalled 40 days combined. We read from scripture that Jesus taught His disciples for 3 days after the Cross. That would leave a remaining total of 37 days for the final period of no testimony waiting for His ascension (see the Jesus Study).
The full duration of Jesus' journey came to completion with the final period of 37 days.
THE FULL DURATION OF JONAH'S JOURNEY
From the time Jonah became a prophet until he waited outside the walls of Nineveh to see what would occur of his warning equalled 4 distinct periods of time mirroring Jesus' journey (see the Jonah study). These periods of time exhibited a time of testimony (man of God), no testimony (inside the fish), testimony (warning the Ninevites) and no testimony (waiting outside the walls). These last two periods of warning the Ninevites and waiting outside the walls equalled 40 days combined. We read from scripture that the period of testimony of warning the Ninevites equalled 3 days. That would leave a remaining total of 37 days for the final period of no testimony waiting outside the walls.
(Jonah 3:3 [KJV])
So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey.
The full duration of Jonah's journey came to completion with the final period of 37 days.
PHYSICAL DESTRUCTION AFTER 37 YEARS
The Old Testament & the New Testament in equal balance.
Aaron's generation lasted for 1530 years (see Adam When? page 232).
The Temple Age then came to completion in the year 33 on the day of Pentecost.
37 years later in 70 A.D. it was physically destroyed.
The Church Age was represented as a net containing 153 great fish.
It then came to completion in the year 1988 the day before Pentecost.
37 yearslater in 2025 it will be physically destroyed.
The full duration of both salvation plans will have come to physical destruction 37 years after no longer being used of God.
OUR FINAL GREAT TRIBULATION DURATION
Our Final Great Tribulation follows God's pattern of the #3. This is the 3rd great tribulation which consists of 3 parts.
1. The 2300 Days
2. The 6100 Days
3. These 5100 Days (see the 5100 study)
The first two parts equalled exactly 23 years (2300+6100=8400 days = 23 years). These final 5100 Days equal a total of 14 years. When we add all three parts together we find that it equals 37 years.
23 years + 14 years = 37 years
The full duration of our Final Great Tribulation will come to completion at the end of our 37 years.
THE FULL DURATION OF CREATION
The Lord has allowed His people to understand the genealogies of the Old Testament while at the same time confounding the unsaved. This biblical Timeline shows that the world began in the year 11,013 B.C.. Through all the corresponding evidence within this website there appears to be a very high probability that the end of this 3rd part of our Final Great Tribulation will come to an end within the year 2025. When we add 11,013 to 2025 then minus 1 year because there is no year zero, we get a total of 13,037 years.
11,013 B.C. + 2025 A.D. = 13,038 years - 1 year = 13,037 years
The full duration of the Lord's creation will come to completion within the 13,037th year.
