As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Was the Babylonian captivity for 70 solar years, or was it for 69 solar years?

    Originally posted by Rod.ney View Post

    What I posted is 100% accurate when those 69 weeks ( 483 Prophetic or Biblical years of 360 days ) are converted into our SOLAR years of 365.25 days to come up with 476 solar years to move forward from 444/445 BC when the decree was issued to restore & rebuild Jerusalem during troublesome times in Nehemiah chapter

    Christians have always believed that the Bible uses a lunisolar calendar of 12 or 13 months of 29 or 30 days each. Each month begins with a new moon, and about every third year a leap month is added to keep the festivals in the same time of the solar year.

    But 125 years ago, the famed Dispensationalist Sir Robert Anderson came up with what he calls "Biblical years" which always have 360 days.


    Q. Was the Babylonian captivity for 70 solar years, or was it for 69 solar years?

    Note: 70 years of 360 days each would be 25,200 days (70 x 360), which would be 69 solar years (25,200 / 365.25).

    A. I believe the Babylonian captivity was for 70 solar years.


    If you also answer 70...

    Please post a verse from the Bible where the word "year" refers to 360 days instead of a solar year, if you can.

    I cannot.
    God our father is the holy spirit called the LORD, and Jesus is the LORD in the flesh.

    The LORD is God Dt 6:4 The LORD is our father Is 64:8 The LORD is holy Is 6:3 God is spirit Jn 4:24 God manifest in the flesh 1 Ti 3:16 Jesus is Lord 1 Co 12:3

      Honestly, Who Cares

      Its not in Mans wisdom, in numerical formulas, God's word is simple.

      2 Corinthians 1:12KJV
      For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

      2 Corinthians 11:3KJV
      But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

        Neither! it was for 70 Prophetic years of 360 days each ( which is about equal to 69 solar years )! Rev. chapter 11 Proves the Prophetic year is 360 days as I correctly told you before on CARM! The 42 Months ( 3.5 Years ) is listed as 1,260 days! So 1,260 divided by 3.5 = 360 days in a Prophetic year!
