Responding to everybody.......................first of all, DON'T TRY TO FIGURE OUT A DATE FOR SOMETHING WITH THIS INFO OR SCRIPTURES I LISTED. I believe the scriptures used and such are wrong. This info is helpful when using the correct scriptures and looking for the right thing. What I posted was NOT to identify the date of Christ's return, it was for proving something else......
Now for JW's, no amount of reasoning on scriptures will work, nor on the date of 1914. They are firm on the scriptures shown to calculate 1914 and on using 607 for the destruction of Jerusalem.
BUT BUT BUT...........................
If showing how they compute the year 1914, it's shown that FROM THEIR OWN SCRIPTURES THEY use to prove 1914 and using THEIR date of 607bc, that they FORGOT or DIDN'T know they were short on 30 days from those 2520 days, that throws it off by 30 years.
Also............those trying to determine how many leap years and days from 607bc, that does not matter, the PROPHESY they use, is based on SEVEN years time. Then they take 1 day as 1 year, so converting the days of 7 years into year. They took 7 years at 360 days a year to equal 2520 days. Then added 2520 days to 607(I think) bc, and get to 1914.
What my post proves and shows, is that using THEIR OWN LOGIC and scriptures, that 7 years time according to the bible contains an extra 30 days to be added on the 6th or 7th year, which means the total number of days instead of being 2520 would be 2550.
Also, the REASON why so many changes, yet 1914 is unchanged, is if you read the book of revelation it's grand climax at hand, as well as many other literature, the ENTIRE CORE of all prophesy is based on 1914. They use talks and district conventions as fullfillments of the trumpets of revelation even though out of order, etc. If 1914 is shown wrong, EVEN with their logic and scriptures and date for destruction of Jerusalem, THEN it's exposed the governing body never had it right. They may even know this already, yet know that it may destroy or cause millions to leave.
Now, as for understanding the true counting of time in bible standards to figure out timelines that may be meant for us to know......before even jumping into that, one must understand the prophecies and scriptures first. Because, many many events are all tied to a one week prophetic timeline. If trying to figure out a date based on 1260 days, 3 and 1/2 years, 42 months, 1290 days, 3 and 1/2 days, and individually when you don't understand that all of those are referring to the exact same thing and time period, being they are all the first or 2nd half of this one week, then your wasting so much time.
