390 + 40 = 430 years (i.e., Ezekiel’s "siege"):

Israel spent exactly 430 years in Egypt (Exodus12:41), and in Exodus 2:11-15, (with Acts 7:23-25), we are told that Moses thought to deliver the nation 40 years earlier, but was forced to flee instead for his life. Therefore, we have the same breakdown of the 430 here as in Ezekiel 4:4-6 (i.e., 390 + 40 = 430 years). (See especially Ezekiel 20:1-44 for the thematic link of Ezekiel to the exodus.) (For more about the '390,' see "time, times, and half-a-time.")


Table 3


1876 BC (Israel enters Egypt after 2 years of the famine) + 390 years = 1486 BC (failed exodus, and exile of Moses), + 40 = 430 years total till the actual exodus of 1446 BC.


In 593 BC, Ezekiel was told to symbolically siege Jerusalem 430 days––"a day for each year"––in anticipation of her doom that occurred exactly seven years later (593 to 586 BC). Therefore, it is significant that there are three cycles of 430 years from entering Egypt (1876 BC), unto exiting Egypt (1446 BC), then unto the exile back again into Egypt (and Babylon) in 586 BC. (Indeed, the "430 x 3" is divided up, not merely into one-plus-two segments as shown in the chart below, but into three even segments of 430––as shown in subsequent chapters---and more!)

Furthermore, "430 x 3" amounts to the 1290 years of Daniel 12:11.


Table 4

Entry|___430___|Exodus___+ 430 x 2___| Judah exiled

Entry|_________= 1290 yrs_________| Judah exiled

1876 BC (enter Egypt) + 430 x 3 = 586 BC (back to Egypt and Babylon again! Jer. 39-44.)

(Also, 430 x 3 = 1290 years of Daniel 12:11––to be tabled in detail shortly.)


1150 years (i.e., "2300 evenings and mornings" of sacrifices, Daniel 8:13; = 1150 days):

(The remaining tables start from the seven-year famine of Joseph and overlap the falls of Israel, Assyria, Judah, and Babylonia. The amazing rhyme and reason for why each overlaps in the specific place it does will be examined over the next few chapters; but for now, please observe how that the span of each siege occurs entirely within the seven-year boundary of Joseph’s famine when forwarded in time by the bible prophecy numbers.)

From the seven-year famine of Joseph, (Israel entered Egypt two years into this famine), till the siege and fall of Samaria, (capital of Israel), there are 1150 years.



Table 5

Famine|_______+_1150_yrs_________|Israel exiled

1878–1871 BC (7-year famine) + 1150 years = 728–721 BC

The "3-year" famine-siege of Samaria lasted from 725–721 BC, (2Kgs. 18:9-10).

At the very hour of the literal New Year of the Exodus from Egypt, (1446 BC, 7 pm, March 10, i.e., "Abib 1/Nisan 1 just commencing, Ex. 12:1, (and thus was the start of the new datum), there was a total eclipse of the sun! The command to keep this special “New Year” was given on the eve of the 10th plague on Egypt just before “Passover”.
