Research Report on Ezekiel’s Dates

There are different ways to track the specific dates given by the prophet Ezekiel. One way is to assume they all offset from their historical period to the modern era. If so the stories indicate dates beginning in April, 2002. This report explains and reveals the modern dates indicated.

Background

The prophet Ezekiel is unusual in that he provides quite a few dates for the times when God spoke to him.

This prophet also provides clues as to when these dates may be prophetic.

The way we tackle this is to take his story and work through the suggest math from his part of the age to the present. This is how it is done.

God first speaks to Ezekiel in the 5th year of the exile of King Jehoiachin, [1] in what is the 30th year of something probably himself.[2] On the 5th day of the 4th month the heavens were opened and he saw visions of God.[3]

This 5th year was also year 10403 AA and the day in question is 3794735.

After seeing visions recorded across the better part of the first three chapters of his book, he proceeds to be taken to "Tel Abib" a prophetic name for the modern city of "Tel Aviv." B and V are pronounced the same in certain cases in Hebrew. There he sits among the exiles, overwhelmed.[4] At the end of 7 days, God comes to Ezekiel and he proceeds to prophecy about what he is being shown.[5]

This 7 day story reflects the 7 times punishment that the nation would soon undergo.[6] In this case we are apparently being told to compute the total number of days in those 7 times forward from the given start day of 3794735, were we are to begin a start day in the modern age. The total days in 2550 years is 930240, which, using our earlier date as a start date, is 4724975, or 3453/4/5, Saturday, 2 June, 1962.

It was on May 30, 1962, that Fidel Castro accepted the Soviet offer to place nuclear missiles on Cuban soil. This decision began the process of deployment, with technical advisors arriving in July, and equipment being shipped from the Black Sea beginning around July 15, 1962. These events would reach world headlines later in the fall.

Ezekiel’s story continues, with him being told to portray the sins of Israel and Judah at the rate of 1 of his days for each of their years.[7] This is early in the development of the modern nation of Israel and there is reason to believe that we should run 40 years of years of days, forward from this date. We reject the idea of running 390 years forward since this puts us well past what other evidence suggests is the end of the age of nations. There are 14550 days in 40 years, so we take our start date, 4724975 and add 14550, with the resulting day being 4739525 or 3493/3/5 FE, or April 3, 2002.

On the day for a year system, this is the year in which King Ahaziah dies at Megiddo.[8] Megiddo is the Hebrew place name for the more popular Greek name Armageddon. The Cuban Missile Crisis was the last time the world was on the brink of Armageddon. April 2002 the world will be next.

Other dates in Ezekiel

IF this is a correct rendering of the date sequence, the other dates in Ezekiel’s scroll might just be prophetic as well. The process we’ll follow here is to compute the number of days away from his start date for all the other dates and run them the same distance from April 3, 2002.

The following table is the result of this operation.
