The glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Interestingly, the duration of wandering in the desert for the children of Israel was exactly 14,000 days. I find it entirely unlikely that this or many other such precise patterns came about by accident, but rather demonstrate that intelligence was behind every step of the biblical record, such as in this case. I discovered this in 2004, approximately 3500 years after the account was initially recorded. Here’s the info:
Go to Numbers 10:11 - On the twentieth day of the second month of the second year, the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle of the Testimony.
Using the biblical 360 day year, you can now do your calculation:
20 + 30 + 360 = 410
Now go to Joshua 4:19 - On the tenth day of the first month the people went up from the Jordan and camped at Gilgal on the eastern border of Jericho. (This was the beginning of the 41st year) 40 X 360 = 14400 + 10 = 14410
Subtract: 14410 - 410 = 14000 days exactly
Actually, I was looking for this pattern in advance of finding it and it was right there exactly as I suspected. However, the reason that I was looking for it was incorrect, which just demonstrates that not everything is as we would wish! Anyway, the “wilderness generation” who disobeyed God wandered exactly 14000 days from the time they left Mt. Sinai, where they had personally beheld God’s glory.
This pattern repeats itself in history – in a most unusual way. It appears that the calculation of Sir Robert Anderson, who pinpointed the Palm Sunday that Christ Jesus was hailed as Messiah - http://philologos.org/__eb-tcp/chap10.htm, and the destruction of the Temple in AD70, which was pinpointed by John Zachary at http://www.harvardhouse.com/prophetictech/new/ad70.htm, were exactly 14000 days apart. The dates these men came up with are 6 April 0032 – 5 August 0070
In other words, just as God punished the Israelites for disbelieving him in the wilderness after seeing His glory, He also brought judgment on them for rejecting their Messiah, the glory of God in human flesh. The dates are conclusive evidence that Jesus was exactly who He claimed to be, the Incarnate Word of God.
One other point is that this really does confirm an AD32 crucifixion. There have been many, many scholars over the years who have tried to pinpoint the year of this, but it is the work of Sir Robert Anderson that not only fits the Biblical account, but also confirms the 14000 day generation of Israelite disobedience and subsequent punishment.
