The number 84 represents the completion of affliction/tribulation throughout the Timeline. In every instance, the affliction/tribulation was finalized when the number 84 came into view.
Such as the 84th year, day or even hour.
The second example we find is within the 1st great tribulation of Jacob
Jacob's great tribulation lasted for 7 years. It began with 23 months within the Promised Land. The 2nd part then consisted of 61 months within Egypt.
Combined, these two parts equal 84 months. Their affliction of servitude for food to Egypt continued until their 84th month.
Genesis 45:6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.
The third example we find is the 3rd part of Jacob's great tribulation
The Israelites exited Egypt during the 3rd part of their great tribulation. Moses' brother, Aaron was 83 years old.
Their full 3-part great tribulation came to completion 13 months later as they celebrated their first mandatory
Passover Feast outside of Egypt. This was at the end of Aaron's 84th year.
Exodus 7:7 And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.
Numbers 9:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
Numbers 9:2 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.
Numbers 9:3 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.
Numbers 9:4 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.
Numbers 9:5And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.
The first example we find is with Anna the prophetess
Anna was a faithful woman to the Lord. Her husband died after 7 years of marriage.
She then lived in affliction as a widow for an additional 84 years.
Luke 2:36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
Luke 2:37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
Anna's life also seems to represent God's salvation plan.
Her 7 years of life with her earthly husband seem to correspond with the 7,000 years of life with God (salvation) from Noah's Flood until Judgment Day.
And her 84 years of affliction without life with her husband seem to correspond with the 2 Witnesses' period of "3 1/2 Days of being killed", after Judgment Day which equal 84 hours! These "3 1/2 Days" are life without God (salvation).
The seventh example we find is within the generations listed in Matthew
Always follow the biblical pattern
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations;
and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations;
and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
Abraham and David are a picture of Christ.
THE OLD TESTAMENT
2167B.C. - Abraham was the founding of God's kingdom.
1037B.C. - David was the first righteous king of the kingdom.
539B.C. - God's people left the Holyland in Judah's 2nd part of their GT.
7B.C. - Christ came to Earth to complete the Law.
14 generations x 3 = 42 generations
These 42 generations are not only giving us an exact historical timeline but also are showing us the Lord's full Old Testament salvation plan from the start of His Kingdom until the end of it.
As we know, everything in the Old Testament was literal history whereas almost everything in the New Testament is spiritual or symbolic pointing to the Old Testament counterpart. Look at the exact comparisons of each timeline. The New Testament is a mirror of the Old Testament!
THE NEW TESTAMENT
7B.C. - Christ was the founding of His new kingdom.
33A.D. - Christ is the righteous King of His kingdom.
1994 - Christ's people left the Church in it's 2nd part of their FGT.
2025 - Christ will return to Earth to complete His full salvation plan.
These identical occurrences mirroring the Old Testament represent 42 symbolic generations.
14 symbolic generations x 3 = 42 symbolic generations
These 42 symbolic generations are mirroring the Old Testament's salvation plan. The Lord's full New Testament salvation plan from the start of His Kingdom until the end of it.
42 generations + 42 generations = 84 generations.
The Old Testament salvation plan + New Testament salvation plan = completion and destruction.
God's full salvation plan will end with "84 generations" at the End of Creation.
Everything in God's plan is perfectly balanced.
But how does the number 84's meaning of affliction fit into this perfectly balanced salvation plan? It actually appears to explain two scenarios.
1. Every person that the Lord planned to save was cursed under the Law until He saved them. This affliction of cursed souls continued until Judgment Day (M21) at which point this affliction ended because every soul that was ever to be saved had become saved.
2. Every person that the Lord had saved throughout history is under affliction living within this cursed world until they "fly away" and go home. His Elect are always fighting to keep control of their sinful bodies as 1 Corinthians proclaims. It's also a perfect example concerning the 1600 furlongs that we are currently in...
1 Corinthians 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
1 Corinthians 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
1 Corinthians 9:26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1 Corinthians 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
Although this fantastic comparison does'nt give us a year of His return it is quite compelling to see the exact historical alignments of each salvation plan!
The fifth example we find is within our Final Great Tribulation
The first two parts of our Final Great Tribulation consisted of the 1st 2300 Days and the 2nd part 6100 Days.
Together they equalled 8400 Days which was an exact 23 years. These 8400 Days ended on Judgment Day.
Daniel 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
Daniel 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed (40 years after Israel becoming a nation -> 1988).
Matthew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh (the 50 year Jubilee of 1994).
The sixth example concerns the 3rd part of our Final Great Tribulation
As we have seen the first two parts of our Final Great Tribulation consisted of 8400 Days. But our 3rd part is also identified with the number 84.
Jesus declared that our 3rd part would be the worst great tribulation period that the Earth has ever seen since Creation.
The 2 Witnesses (the Elect) were silenced after Judgment Day and will continue to be silenced until the Rapture occurs.
This final 3rd part is described as "3 1/2 days". These symbolic "3 1/2 Days" equal exactly 84 hours. When these 84 hours
end it not only ends this 3rd part but also the whole Final Great Tribulation as the Rapture takes the Elect from destruction.
Revelation 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Revelation 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Revelation 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
The fourth example we find is within the great tribulation of Judah
Judah's great tribulation lasted for 70 years. It began with 23 years within the Promised Land. The 2nd part then consisted of 47 years within Egypt.
Combined, these two parts equalled 840 months. Their affliction of servitude to Babylon continued until their 840th month.
Jeremiah 25:11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.
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.
