Peter Meters Time to Paul's Eph 1:3-14

Long before we invented 'Anno Domini', Bible used it. This series examines NT Anno Domini Dateline Meter formulas, and how they are all precedented on the OT dating system from both Adam's Fall (not initial creation) and, as a countdown TO a planned Millennial start of 4200 after Adam's Fall. See Preface for orientation, brainout.net/LukeDatelineMeters.htm#Preface .

This video continues the survey with 1Peter through Jude, still showing how all the NT dateline meters, have the following in common:

* The Lord's Age is stated BLUNTLY, or as a formula based on His originally planned Death or Birth pre- or post-David. Often, the meters will interrelate all these dates: three death dates and two birthdates, so to track and reconcile them. Bible's Anno Domini reconciliation with the OT, its BC/AD converter, is the ORIGINAL planned Birthdate of 4106. Due to the delay in David's crowning -- he was crowned on time, 1050 years after Abraham supermatured at age 100, but wasn't crowned over ALL Israel until 7 years later -- Christ had to be born a net 3.5 years earlier (reflecting Temple's late start as well). So He dies in 4136, not 4143 (the Davidic deadline) or 4146 (the original 2100+2046 deadline from Abe's supermaturation). That TIMELINE SHIFT is not known in Christendom, but is tracked in Bible, as you'll see here.

* The ADAMIC YEAR of writing is somewhere stated as two ending numbers, much as we use '15' to mean '2015'.

* At least one of the meters 'tags' a past event in secular history, to parallel current time to the 'story' of that past event.

* At least one of the meters is dated in terms of years-to the Trib, Millennium, or a closely-related, forward countdown tracked since the OT.

In short, the meter formulas are predictable. So they are testable. Since often a chapter will have its own dateline meter (esp. in the OT or any other serial book, like Acts, Isaiah and Daniel), then you can more quickly figure out what formula to 'test'. The dateline meter will often finish within the first 1-3 verses of a chapter. If the last sevening is later, it's a plan-of-time passage, not merely a dateline (like Psalm 90, Daniel 9, Eph 1:3-14, 1Peter1:1-12, etc).

Video's Doc used (first two pages): brainout.net/LukeDatelineMeters.pdf or doc or htm. As usual, for doc or htm you need Bibleworks fonts, freely downloadable at bibleworks.com/fonts.html . The columns in the htm won't align, so the numbers for the meters look 'wavy'. I'll fix that in the future. The smaller the font size used in your browser, the more the numbers 'straighten'.

It will also be helpful to download the worksheet which plots all the numbers, so when you see me refer to Adamic years, you can tell that the BIBLE's use of those specific years, are actually from BIBLE's own dates; for the worksheet was created solely from, the Bible's dates: brainout.net/GeneYrs.xls .

Verses used to create that worksheet are in brainout.net/brainoutFAQ.htm#6a .

It's a lot of material, but given the importance of the accounting, it should be worth anyone's time to actually vet the material. Whether God wants you to do that, is a matter between you and Him. For once you see how bald these meters are, you know several important things:

1. YES we really do have the inerrant and infallible Word of God, because clearly these meters are deliberate so we know we have the real Words God Preserved (take THAT, you scurrilous KJVO people),

2. YES we can know EXACTLY when Bible books were written (take THAT, you scurrilious Bible debunkers),

3. YES we know EXACTLY WHAT BOOKS ARE SCRIPTURE (take THAT, you who claim we needed some dippy Council of Nicaea or other popish nonsense),

4. YES we know EXACTLY how long it was since Adam FELL, and YES the Bible does NOT say how old the earth is, as the issue isn't even relevant (take THAT, you young earthers and others who would divert the topic of Bible study to banalities),

5. YES we know BETTER how to actually INTERPRET the Bible books, since the DATE OF WRITING is turned into a complex relation-back and relation-forward CONCORDANCE with history and other Bible events, so we know the CONTEXT the WRITER INTENDS.

In short, a whole lot of wasted money on debates over the above five topics, can stop being wasted. Of course, since a lowly brainout simply counted syllables to find this, the finding will be disregarded, disputed, as if the credentials of the person FINDING something was relevant to what was FOUND. But what was FOUND, is in Scripture, so ANYONE, degreed or not, can FIND it.

New uploads are ad hoc here in 2015, focusing on the meter proving Peter wrote in 2 Peter in late August or early September, 68 AD. The 2014 videos cover 1 Peter's meter style playing a 'song' on Ephesians 1:3-14, and how Jude knew that and made his text 'fit' that 'song'. To play these videos in order: channel . Sorting: click on 'Browse This Channel', then 'Videos'. Vids are many, so icons are color-coded by subtopic. So just bypass the 'color' if a subtopic doesn't interest you.

GIST: 1Peter1:1-12's metered Greek also creates a 'calendar' that interleaves with Paul's Eph1:3-14. So this 'petermeter' vimeo channel/playlist series is both a subset of, and continues solely in vimeo, Episode 5e17 RFG and following, from the 'Peter's Metered!' Youtube series ( youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1bv_xPIih3dGqw7tJEfz7LUh_mnSDc6q ). So the vimeo 'channel' (playlist) includes selected Peter's Metered! Youtube videos up to Episode 5e16 RFG. All later episodes, will be housed only within vimeo. The Youtube playlist covers related matters (like the 'song' Peter makes from interleaving his text with Paul).

Peter's Meter focus: future Roman history. Peter, like Paul, traces that future to Odovacer. The meter sets the doctrinal tone, of each letter.

When Paul died, Peter knew he'd soon be next; so he writes to folks whom Paul served. He begins 1Peter1:1-12 in meter, to validate his own letter as Divine, and to update Paul's metered timeline in Eph1:3-14. Since Paul's letter was cyclical with a 'blank' in the space where the recipient city would be placed (as most scholars know), Paul's meter didn't begin until verse 3. But Peter states the recipients; so like Moses in Psalm 90, Peter includes his byline as part of the dateline meter. Thus we know when Peter wrote; from the end of the letter, we know he wrote from Babylon, not Rome. Peter will soon die in Babylon.

The ancients all used METER as

* a dateline (telling you when the text is originally written),
* a concordance (to cross-reference related passages),
* a hermeneutic (to interpret text written, in light of prior text), and
* a calendar (both past and future, to teach timed doctrine you'd apply).

For in the ancient world, though literacy was common, it was a pain to carry scrolls and parchments; so folks instead just memorized, using syllable counts to verify the material. Then, in their low-tech age, it was fun to play with the meter and the words, while walking to Ephesus or spinning flax, etc. This was their entertainment, as well as their learning method.

Sadly, modern 'scholarship' has been arguing whether Bible Hebrew/Greek even has meter, for over 300 years! So all this meaning is missed, and Bible interpretations -- especially re prophecy -- are fuzzy, contradictory, even puerile. For centuries. It's dishonest to be charitable, sorry.

How then to fix the problem? Well, it's best to just show the meter technique, so you can proof the above uses. For above all, the meter is a Time Accounting of Past or Future, so you know How To Live Today.

So this Petrine subset of the RFG series, focuses on Bible Writing Dates re the four books rolled out in the Year of the Four Emperors (Peter, Jude, Mark, Hebrews). Further, it shows how Peter's Meter plays on Paul's in Ephesians, re the new Church 490; for his letter is about 'living stones' and 'new priesthood'. 'To replace the 2nd Temple; which, in 68 AD, was under seige. Its 40-year 'credit' (for starting 40 years late in the Land), was almost spent.

Hence Peter's metrical theme is TEMPLE REBUILDING; here, playing off Ephesians 2 as well as Paul's meter in Eph1:3-14. So Peter prophetically syncopates his meter in antiphonal fashion, much like Psalm 90's structure -- doing that especially at syllable=year 350, when Moses cut off Psalm90 to signify Temple Rebuilding (prophesied 1st) In Danger! Very clever. No way a Greek reader could miss that, since people memorized Scripture using syllable counts.

Peter also uses a bifurcated timeline like Daniel did, in Daniel 9 (both Psalm 90 and Dan 9, are shown live in the Psalm 90 playlist, with Word docs you can dowload and test). Like Daniel, Peter does a year-by-year dual timeline that circles on key syllable=year segments in Paul (prophetically), and on the timeline forward from Peter's own writing (10 years after Paul wrote Ephesians 1:3-14).

So Peter's DATELINE use of the meter is patterned on Psalm 90's '84', which Isaiah 53 had cut into bookends of 42 each (played on in Matthew's genealogy 42s, and Luke's 77 to cover the Gentiles).

The Petrine 84, however, is also 84 'sevens' from the date God declared Christ's birthdate and the order to Rebuild The Temple to Zerubbabel, in Haggai 2; but simultaneously, Peter dates his writing to 84 years after Herod began Rebuilding the 2nd Temple (called by Jews today, '3rd Temple'), which entailed replacing the 2nd Temple with Herod's stonework (18 BC). So we definitively know when Peter wrote: late in 66 AD, aka 'our' 68 AD, which would become the 'Year of the Four Emperors'.

When Peter soon after dies, Jude will extensively play on 2 Peter 2, a few months later. His meter is trebled, as explained in the RFG series Episode 5d.

Enfin, the meter tells you how to interpret the words, so is vital to hermeneutics. It's all original research, sorry; but if you can count syllables and read Bible Greek in BibleWorks, also history books/articles by established Roman historians, you can understand what Peter means.
