Please refer to lessons 1 through 5 to get oriented for this final lesson… thanks again to the great E.W. Bullinger and his Masterpiece of work The Companion Bible & and the accompanying appendixes…
THUS… the sun, moon, and stars are for ‘signs’ (things to come) and for ‘seasons’ ” appointed times.”…& also cycles of time…
There are no less than 10 of these cycles, all of them different; not concentric, but yet all of them coinciding at creation, but never since; like a number of hoops of different sizes hanging from a nail. This shows that they must have had a given simultaneous start.
1. The cycle of 24 hours for the day, an evening and morning….2. The revolution of the moon round the earth. 3. The lunar cycle which began at the same moment as the solar cycle. 4. The daily revolution of the Sun, which places him on the meridian at noon each day. 5. The solar cycle coinciding with the first of the seven years of lunar motion and repeating itself every 365 days. 6. The beginning of a Week of 7 Days on the first day of the week, of the first month of the first year of the first solar cycle. 7. The first Eclipse of the cycle of 18 years and 11 days, to which the ancient astronomers gave the name of SAROS; each SAROS containing an average of 70 eclipses, divided into two portions of 594 years and 666 years, making together 1260 years.
8. Besides these, there is the period of the Heliacal risings of Sirius in a cycle of 162 years. 9. The Transits of Venus. 10. And the grand cycle known as the Precession of the Equinoxes.
All of these combine and unite in showing that the chronology of Archbishop Usher was substantially correct. And this proves that the inflated chronology of modern historians and theologians is entirely unscientific, being the hypothesis of men who dabbled in things outside their own sphere, and of which they were incompetent to form a correct judgment.
Well friends I hope you have enjoyed this wonderful study of the stars… see it is true that God has not left Himself without a witness about His creation…the span of time & space, created for mankind… and also including what the future holds… visit me at my blog…littleraventhepoet.blog… Sincerely Frank Payton.
