AFTER 40 YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS - WITH ABOUT 2,000,000 PEOPLE -

JOSHUA LED ISRAEL ACROSS THE JORDAN INTO CANAAN............1451 B.C.

The first generation of 600,000 men plus children had left Egypt with an assortment of additional Semitic tribes, descendants of Shem (son of Noah), but not necessarily descendanats of Abraham. Many Egyptians who feared God joined them as well as did a motley group of misfits who proved to be a lot of trouble later. It is estimated that approximately one million people left Goshen. God had opened the wombs mightily.

The first generation of pilgrims died in the wilderness but during that 40-year-journey a second and third generation were raised up. By the time they reached the Jordan, it is estimated that there were 2,000,000 people on the move - a mighty nation indeed as God had promised. And this did not include their cattle, sheep, goats, donkeys and oxen.

Salmon, son of Nahshon (who died in the wilderness) was one of the second generation to enter Canaan a grown man with Joshua and Caleb. He received his inheritance of the area of Bethlehem with his Uncle Caleb. He later married Rahab, the Canaanite harlot who had hidden the spies and repented, turning in faith to the God of Israel.

They had a son they named Boaz born circa 1410 B.C., who inherited the land in Bethlehem and married Ruth, the Moabite daughter-in-law of Naomi. They too had a son named Obed, born circa 1300 B.C. who had a son named Jesse born circa 1190 B.C.

Jesse had seven sons, David being the youngest and born during his old age (possibly at age 105). Jesse was 129 years old when David, at age 24, hid his parents with the king of Moab.

Gideon was born about 1250 B.C., approximately 60 years before Jesse was born. In fact, the Book of Judges covers all of the above period.

David was born 1085 B.C. and reigned 1055 B.C. to 1015 B.C. (40 years) He was 30 years old when he became King and reigned the first seven years in Hebron, the remaining 33 years in Jerusalem. He died in 1015 B.C. at the age of 70.

Solomon, reigned 1015 B.C. to 975 B.C. (40 years). He had laid the firm foundations of the Temple in the second month of the fourth year of his reign, in the 480th year after the Exodus (1 Kings 6:1). He was seven years in building the Temple and thirteen additional years in building the Kingís house.

Solomonís age on ascending the throne is unknown, but we do know he was about ten years old when Absolom was killed. Absolom was born 1050 B.C. If Solomon was born in Davidís old age it had to be around 1035 B.C. making him 20 years of age when he ascended the throne and only 60 years of age when he died.

It adds up this way: Moses was born 1571 B.C. and was 80 years of age at the time of the Exodus (1491 B.C.). The fourth year of Solomonís reign was 1011 B.C., 480 years after the Exodus and, with 40 years in the wilderness behind them, were now 440 years established in the Promised Land.

During this time the land was secured, the Judges ruled, Saul and David ruled, and Samuel, Nathan and Gad were the voices of God in the land. During this time Samuel

established the schools of the Prophets and Jerusalem became the Gem of Israel.

The Temple was completed in the 8th month of 1005 B.C. God accepted the Temple and her priests, called the people to holiness and established Jerusalem as a Holy City. In 1995 A.D. Jerusalem celebrated itís 3,000 years birthday. Pilgrims from all over the world, Jews, Christians and Muslims, traveled to Jerusalem to lend their support and join in the spiritual celebration of the most timely occasion yet fulfilled in their earthly lifetimes. This alone confirms this time chart.

OTHER PERTINENT DATA:

The battle of the kings after which Abraham met Melchizedek was in 1898 B.C. when Abraham was 94 years old.

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed in 1893 B.C. when Abraham was 99 years old. Isaac was born nine months later. Abraham also received the Covenant of Circumcision in 1893 B.C..

Sarah was 127 years old when she died in 1855 B.C., leaving a grieving 37-year-old Isaac. Following a proper mourning period, Abraham sent his servant Eliezer to Haran to choose a bride for Isaac from among his people. Eliezer returned with Rebekah when Issac was 40 years old This left Abraham alone at the age of 140 so he took himself a new wife, Keturah, and lived another 35 years with her, fathering another six sons.

Abraham lived 175 years and died in 1817 B.C.. He lived to see the twins, Jacob and Esau, reach their 15th birthday.

Jacob, born in 1832 B.C., was 78 years old when Isaac sent him to Haran to escape the wrath of his brother, Esau and to find a wife from among thier people. Jacob spent almost 21 years in bondage to Laban in Haran and in that time all of his sons and daughter were born except Benjamin.

Joseph was born in the 14th year of Jacobís bondage, when Jacob was 92 years old. He was six years old when Jacob left Haran to return to Isaac. Jacob was now 99 years old and anxious to see his own father. On the way home, Benjamin was born near Bethlehem and Rachel died. So Jacob returned to Isaac with the twelve sons of Israel, one an infant, and a daughter named Dinah. Isaac would watch them grow up and he would witness the disappearance of Joseph just eleven years later.

Joseph was sold into Egypt in 1723 B.C. at the age of 17, just eleven years prior to the death of Isaac who died at the age of 180 in 1712 B.C. Joseph lived his remaining 93 years in Egypt, dyng in 1630 B.C. at the age of 110.

Jacob went down to Egypt in 1702 B.C.at the age of 130 and a 38 year old administrative Joseph greeted him. Jacob lived another 17 years in Egypt, dying at the age of 147 in 1685 B.C. and Joseph lived 55 additional years after Jacobís death.

In the period of the Judges Samson is thought to have been born circa 1161 B.C. Samuel lived 1064 B.C. to 971 B.C., the book of 1 Samuel covering a period of 93 years, his lifetime.

King Saul reigned 1096-1056 B.C., a period of 40 years. Saul and Jonathan died in the same battle in 1056 B.C. and David ascended the throne first as King of Judah, then of all Israel.

AMAZING...

More than half of the 4,000 years between the creation of Adam and the birth of Jesus Christ are spent in the first eleven chapters of Genesis. From Adam to the birth of Abraham 2,008 years have passed. By the end of Genesis, at the death of Joseph, 2,370 years have passed. By the time we pass through the Exodus, the wilderness, the Judges, the reigns of Saul, David and Solomon, it is 975 B.C. and this has to take us to the stable in Bethlehem.

During this period we have a 70-year Babylonian captivity and 483 years (the 69 weeks of Daniel), bringing the calendar to a mere 422 years to be absorbed in the reigns of the kings and the prophets throughout the rest of the entire Old Testament. The 69 weeks of Daniel began with the command to Nehemiah to begin rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem a few years after the Jews were released from their 70-year exile. From that command to the end of Malachi stretches a period of 49 years.

This is followed by a 400-year prophetic silence in Israel between the Old and New Testaments. Thatís 449 years to the birth of John the Baptist who was born six months prior to Jesus. Jesus died at the exact age of 33 1/2. Adding this to the six months headstart of John, we number a total of 34 years exactly on the day he made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on the foal of a donkey. Add that 34 years to 449 and you have exactly 483 years, the completion of the 69 weeks of Daniel.

As Jesus rode into Jerusalem, Godís prophetic clock stopped ticking. This began the age of Grace and itís duration is known only to God. The church will be raptured from the earth before the clock resumes itís countdown. The clock will start ticking again for the final 70th week when the antichrist signs a seven-year peace treaty with Israel. As he lays down his pen, the clock will begin to tick. The seven years that follow will be the years of the great tribulation.

Boaz, Naomi, Ruth, Obed, Gideon Jesse, Saul, Jonathan and David were all born during the times of the Judges. Samuel was the last Judge of Israel, dying during the wanderings of David. He is credited with establishing the first communities for education in both religious and secular learning.

John the Baptist was born in March, 5 B.C. and Jesus Christ was born September, 5 B.C. Why March and September? Well, it was not winter when our Lord was born for in winter there are no shepherds in the fields. And these shepherds were "abiding" which means they were staying in the fields day and night. So even the nights were still warm. Soon they would pen the sheep up for the winter but for now there was still good pasture. John was born the previous March, six months earlier.

I believe it was the September harvest time because there was new hay in the stable and the city of Bethlehem was well able to feed all those who came for the tax census. The latter rains come in October and the former (spring rains) come in March-April, but from May to October there is no rain. The census was taken outdoors where it was still warm enough to wait in line. Mary, being with child, could not have made the trip and given safe birth in the winter cold, neither would Rome have imposed a census taking in the winter forcing many to travel in the cold and the cold rains. I believe He was a September birth, a product of harvesttime.

John was beheaded just before the third passover in Jesusís ministry in March, 29 A.D. Jesus was crucified the following Passover in 30 A.D. at age 33 1/2. His birth in 5 B.C was four years behind the Roman calender we use today. However the Roman calendar was not used until several hundred years after Christ and when calculations were finally made in the 6th century by a monk named Dionysius Exiguus, he made an error of four years. This means that completion of the 69 weeks of Daniel and the Crucifixion took place in 34 A.D., making this 2004 A.D. and not 2000 A.D.

My only problem :

I could not find 430 years bondage in Egypt alone. I found 232 years in Egypt by combining Josephís 93 years in Egypt and the 139 years difference between Josephís death and the date of the Exodus. Then I included the sojourns of the Patriarchs by adding 92 (Jacobís age at the birth of Joseph), adding 60 (Isaacís age at the birth of Jacob) and the 46 years of Abrahamís wanderings (21 in Haran before going to Canaan and 25 in Canaan prior to the birth of Isaac). This covers 430 years. However the above 232 years was sufficient for the four generations to be raised up. (Israel would come out of Egypt in the 4th generation) It was also sufficient for a promised population explosion of divine measures. In Galations 3:17 and Acts 13:20 there is reference to the sojourns of the children of Israel being 430 years but these sojourns could have begun with Abraham's journey from Ur to Haran. Each generation, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob went down to Egypt at least once in each lifetime because of famine in the land.

When Abraham went to Egypt with Sarah, he came back with abundance, and we know how God blessed Joseph in Egypt. Could these have been forerunners of the big one???

I cannot prove the 21 years in Haran, only that Abram left his native Ur with his father and his nephew Lot. This had been Terahís idea, to move to Canaan, and he took his family with him. On the way they stopped over to visit relatives in Haran (Syria) and Terah settled down there. Terah was an idolatrous man and Haran was a pagan city that appealed to him. But Abram was an honorable son who stayed with his aged father to care for him until he died. After that, God called Abram away from his kinsmen to go into the land of Canaan.

Abraham came out of Haran a wealthy man, with a great company and much substance, gold and silver. God had prospered him even in Haran. It simply seems conceivable that 21 years would not be too out of line since Terah was 205 when he died and was already old when they departed from the land of the Chaldees, possibly 180 plus, with Abraham being about 54 when they left.

I say this because Terah was 130 years old when Abram was born, leaving 75 years left of his life, and we know Abram was not 75 until he left Haran and went into Canaan.

The Word in Genesis says Terah "settled" in Haran so we know they lived there for some period of time before Terah died. Twenty-one years fits into the time chart.

There is one other possibility - The Apostle Paul says in Galatians 3:17 that the call of Abraham (with the first Covenant) to the giving of the law less than a year after the Exodus is 430 years.

God, speaking in Genesis 15:13-14, told Abraham that his descendants would be strangers in a land that was not their own and be afflicted for 400 years. Then later in Genesis it is recorded as 430 years and Exodus numbers the years as 430, so it is difficult to know how to interpret it. It is in fact impossible to find these years in Egypt alone.

Therefore we have to consider that they were strangers in strange lands all these years for it is certain they were not living in lands they ruled or owned. It was a continuous circuit of travel - going to Egypt, going to Haran, back to Canaan, etc. Also, since all other facts and dates line up so perfectly otherwise, one can only believe one of the two above calculations is correct. Aside from that all we can do is wait and ask Abraham and Moses when we see them...

If you want to research those years of the kings and the prophets and fill them in as I have filled in the beginning of the road in this chart, please send me a copy when you have finished it. Shalom and God Bless...
