Prophecy: Global Catastrophe
A Global Catastrophe Will Leave Earth Devastated and closer to the sun! Learn How This Can Happen, And How You Can Escape All These Calamities before
The Beginning of
The 360 Day Year
(1260 Days = 42 months)
The Bible is not wrong. People misinterpret what it means and then assume it is wrong. Therefore, readers often see mention of a 1260 time span which is 42 months, and count it as 3.5 years, and then build their predictive calendars upon that timing. But, could they be wrong. Could our presently accepted physics assumptions be altered? Yes, that can happen and apparently did happen long ago.
There is a calendar secret of ancient history from Genesis, and it is mentioned again in the Bible’s end book, “Revelation”. In this prophecy earth moves to a 360 day year because of a global catastrophe. Will we be here for this event? Perhaps yes! .
One Tribulation, Three Lengths?
The Book of Revelation contains many insights and predictions
There is mention of an evil beast-like ruler who will dominate the entire earth (Rev 13:7) for the last 42 months of this age (Rev 13:5) . However, that a major change to earth’s orbit is predicted by this and related numbers is not obvious.
There are three different time lengths implied for the great tribulation found among six accounts of activities taking place then:
3½ Years / Half of 7 Years
Daniel 9:27 tells us that the Abomination of Desolation and ceasing of the daily oblation will happen in the “middle” of the 70th week (or final 7 year period) not in the beginning of it. Jesus also says at the time of the Abomination of Desolation those who love God will be “taken to a place of safety (Mt 24:15) before a “great tribulation” follows it (Mt 24:21). Half of 7 years = 3½ years.
Daniel 7:25 says that the Little Horn (Antichrist) will speak against God and oppress the holy ones for a time, (pair of) times, and half of time or 1 + 2 + ½ = 3½ years
Revelation 12:14 says that the Woman is protected from Satan for the same amount of “times” (3½) as the Little Horn oppresses = 3½ years.
- 42 Months
Revelation 11:2says that Gentile armies will trample Jerusalem for 42 months.
Revelation 13:5-7 says the Beast (Antichrist) will blaspheme God and conquer the saints for 42 months.
- 1260 Days
Revelation 11:3 says that the Two Witnesses prophesy during this same period for 1260 days.
In other words, the 1260 days of the Two Witnesses is the same 42 months that the Temple Mount is trampled while the Little Horn/Beast speaks against God and oppresses the saints (Rev 11:1-3=Dan 7:25=Rev 13:5). It is also the same 3½ years that the righteous “Woman” is protected in the wilderness (Rev 12:14). All these events relate to the tribulation when the Antichrist continues for “a time, (pair of) times, and half a time” as Daniel 7:25 says.
The only time “seven years” is mentioned in connection with the great tribulation is for entire seven year 70th week. The great tribulation is only the second half of that. The first half is not called “the tribulation” also but has another name given by Jesus: the “beginning of birth pains/sorrows” (Mt 24:8; Mk 13:8).
The Hidden Prediction in Great Tribulation Lengths
How can it be that Daniel and Revelation give us three different measurements of length for the same time period when all that was necessary to establish the length is to use one measurement such as “three and one half years?”
The answer comes clearly once we do a little math on the numbers above:
- 1260 days ÷ 3.5 years = 360 days per year
- 1260 days ÷ 42 months = 30 days per month
Obviously, this does not match our current cosmology of:
- 2422 days per year.
- 531 days per lunation.
The Hebrews used lunar months, or the cycle from new moon to new moon. This is reflected in the Hebrew word for month (chodesh) meaning also moon, similar to how the etymology of “month” is related to the moon.
It is also a mismatch of both the (fixed, precalculated) Rabbinic Jewish and (observed, lunar-agricultural) Karaite calendars of today. Both of these calendars have 29 day months mixed in with 30 day months instead of consistent 30 day months. Since this amounts to around only 354 (not 360) days per year, every two or three years a 13th or leap month (Adar Bet) must be added to intercalate the calendar (keep it in sync with the seasons).
Given that a 360/30 calendar does not match our 365¼/29½ reality, it is very tempting to dismiss the great tribulation numbers above as not intended literally, but as convenient approximations.
But again, why even bother to give these redundant “approximations” if all we needed was to have any one of these lengths to give us an idea of the breadth of the reign of the Antichrist?
If it means what it literally says, then what we have hidden in those numbers is an implied prediction of a coming change of the calendar through a shortening of the year by five days before the Great Tribulation begins. For this to occur the earth’s orbiting time must decrease around 1% by the time the Antichrist takes power to shave five days off the year. Did this happen before and could it again?
The 360/30 Calendar in
The Old Testament
Is that even possible? Yes, it is not only possible, but it appears to have happened in earlier history.
Most educated people assume that the earth has been going around the sun the same way for thousands or even billions of years. They are not aware of catastrophism or the theory that the earth has been affected by sudden violent planetary-wide events in the past. Immanuel Velikovsky was one of the more noteworthy proponents of this view with his book “World’s in Collision.”
Catastrophism should not be a strange concept to those who have read the Bible. The deluge in Noah’s day was related to Catastrophism and some say related to the return of our “Destroyer Star” and her surrounding planets approximately every 3,600 years.
If you haven’t yet learned, most stars are binary and our sun also has a twin. They orbit around one another. Our sun’s twin makes a very long elliptical orbit that requires a 3,600 year path. It’s due to arrive here again soon. I think around the year 2022 those alive here will see it and feel the effects of falling asteroids from that “solar system.”
Even atheists commonly accept that the dinosaurs were wiped out when an asteroid or comet struck the earth. That, too, is catastrophism—and of a kind that could explain how the calendar of the earth could change and probably changed before.
You see, the Old Testament implies that the Hebrews and other ancient peoples knew nothing about the 365¼ or 29½ cosmology of today. The implication is always a 360 day year and 30 day month. Some examples:
Noah’s Flood: During the time of the flood we read in Genesis tells that 150 days started on the 17th day of the second month, and ended on the 17th day of the seventh month or exactly five months later (Genesis 7:11, 24 and 8:3-4). 150 days ÷ 5 months = 30 days per month. 30 days × 12 months = 360 days per year.
Month Of Mourning Statute: Mourning for the dead is ordered for a “full month” and is recorded as carried on for thirty days (Dt 34:8; 21:13; Nu 20:29). If it were as today that some lunar months were 29 days and others 30 days, why is there never a record of a 29 day month anywhere in Scripture but many accounts of 30 days? (In fact, the number 29 never appears in the Bible.)
King Ahaseurus’ 180 Day Feast: Esther 1:4 implies a 360 day year or consistently 30 day month by recording that the feast continued exactly 180 days. Whether the feast is meant to fulfill half a year or six months, neither approach would arrive at 180 days under a 365¼/29½ cosmology but both approaches would work under a 360/30 calendar.
How the Original 360 Day Year Lengthened to 365¼ Days
The Bible is not the only ancient testimony we have of the ancients living in a world of 360 day years and 30 day months. There is much historical evidence from ancient history that we were on a 360/30 calendar once before; (from which we get our 360 degrees of a circle). In fact, there are over a dozen ancient calendars with 360 day years or 30 day months before the 8th century BC.
After that, the calendars changed. Did something happen in the 8th century BC to require calendars to be updated?
Chuck Missler also mentions the evidence that Mars was on a different orbit that brought it dangerously close to earth. Chuck Missler says it came so close it brought catastrophes with semi-regularity. From this past we may have much of the dread and ferocity associated with the name Mars (the god of war). In the last interaction with earth, it both modified earth’s orbit and its own so that it has the present “safe” orbit seen today. There is also mention here and there of a collision with another planet which was in our solar system. Now it’s the asteroid belt.
The asteroid belt is the circumstellar disc in the Solar System located roughly between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter. It is occupied by numerous irregularly shaped bodies called asteroids or minor planets.
Could that happen near earth? Revelation 8:8 New International Version
The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood,
But what about the 30 day lunation becoming 29½ days?
If Mars perturbed the orbit of the earth to move further away from the Sun and take five days longer, then automatically the lunar cycle would shorten from 30 days to the current 29½.
If you are as fascinated by these ideas as I am, then I suggest reading the book The Mars-Earth Wars for more details.
The Solution: Wormwood Catastrophe Before the Great Tribulation
If Mars is now in a different orbit which never brings it close to earth anymore, then it is not likely to reverse what it did before to our calendar. However, there is another object mentioned by Revelation that can make this calendar reversal right on time for the great tribulation.
The great tribulation of Daniel is also described in Revelation; from the 5th trumpet through 7th trumpet. Not surprisingly, the 3rd and 4th trumpet describe global catastrophic effects—polluted fresh waters and a “nuclear winter”-like darkening of the sky, respectively—blamed on a wayward “star” called Wormwood.
What is this Wormwood and how could it work?
It’s important to note that the Greek word aster translated “star” in English Bibles is not specifically a star but refers to any unknown object in the sky whether it be a meteor, asteroid, moon, star or planet. While a star could not come anywhere near earth let alone “fall upon” it and an asteroid is too small to affect earth’s orbit, a dwarf planet would explain all the catastrophic events described by Revelation as leading up to the Great Tribulation.
For example, before Wormwood is mentioned at the 3rd trumpet, the 1st and 2nd trumpets describe a storm of meteorite and asteroid impacts on the earth. This would readily contaminate fresh water with everything imaginable. The resultant impacts would also send particulate matter into the atmosphere. Both of these impact results readily explain the 3rd trumpet poisoned waters and 4th trumpet blocked sunlight, respectively.
Before all that, the 6th seal describes a great global earthquake and multiple eclipses with a meteor shower. How do we explain that?
Again, a dwarf planet or a smaller darker star passing close enough by the earth would send strong gravitation waves causing earthquakes. If it was smaller than earth and passing at earth’s Roche Limit), it could be overcome by earth’s gravity and disintegrate. Or it could have asteroids with it which might fall through our atmosphere and land on earth. Each weighing about a talent which (according to whether it was a Babylonian/Sumerian, Greek or Roman talent) might weigh between 45 and 75 pounds, but that’s a very rough estimate.
Revelation 16:17-21 tells us that an unprecedented hailstorm will occur after the pouring of the seventh vial judgment. The hailstones that will fall to the earth during the storm will weigh about a talent. The plague of hail will be so severe that men will blasphemy God.
(17) And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. (18) And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. (19) And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. (20) And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. (21) And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.” (Rev 16:17-21) ( see more of this article here: https://www.prophecyproof.org/2012/03/largest-hailstones-ever/
This would explain the overwhelming amount of meteorites and asteroids described in the 6th seal, 1st trumpet and 2nd trumpet. Essentially, everything beneath such hail storms of ice or meteorites is crushed to death as these bodies arrive at speeds over 300 miles per hour. This is not a speed high enough to break the sound barrier with a sonic boom, but it will be a sound similar to the falling of bombs during the World War II bombing raids.
Finally, Wormwood would have itself tugged back at the earth to not only cause the global earthquakes, but it would also “perturb” earth’s orbit enough to shorten our year to the 360/30 calendar that begins at the 5th trumpet or Great Tribulation. This will require moving the earth into a closer or smaller orbit with the sun.
Earth is mostly a big iron ball and breaking it would be nearly impossible. But its orbit can be perturbed and brought closer to the sun causing a reduction of 5¼ days to the year.
Many pieces of Wormwood “fall upon” the earth (Rev 8:10) but their effect is not one of complete destruction but much less, affecting one third of the fresh water (Rev 8:11).
Where would something like a burning mountain fall and could it relate to the destruction of North America? I think there is ample evidence that at the end of all of this horror North America will sink below the surface of the sea. But even before that happens, it is possible an asteroid could fall (to become a meteorite) into the Atlantic ocean causing a tsunami that would wipe the Eastern US Seaboard off the map. The Mega city or “Megalopolis” which is known for its extreme wealth and luxurious living, along with outrageously bad manners and morals is expected to receive “The Wrath of God.” This is implied by a careful reading and research of prophecies. (The Northeast megalopolis (also Boston–Washington Corridor or Bos-Wash Corridor) is the most heavily urbanized region of the United States, running primarily northeast to southwest from the northern suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, to the southern suburbs of Washington, D.C., in Northern Virginia.)

Will what’s left of the world’s population accept a strong leader who promises to rebuild their lives IF they will worship him? What do you think? I’ll cover that discussion in a following article we’ll call “Global Catastrophe II.”
My elder sister asked me, “What can we do about it?” Jesus answered her:
Luke 21:30-36New International Version (NIV)
30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
32 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
