2 swords on both ends of the 7 times without a promised land

Dear readers!

My brother Emmanuel found another interesting correspondence. We already understood that 7 times, or 2520 years had passed from the time Adam and Eve were evicted from Eden, until God’s people entered the Promised Land. This is the period between 3993BC and 1473BC. So when Joshua met the angelic prince of the army of Jehovah, Michael, it really happened at the ‘appointed time’. But we can see one detail in the two accounts fencing the time of know God appointed land for his people…

23 With that Jehovah God put him out of the garden of Eden to cultivate the ground from which he had been taken. 24 And so he drove the man out and posted at the east of the garden of Eden the cherubs and the flaming blade of a sword that was turning itself continually to guard the way to the tree of life.
And Adam said: "Because you heard the voice of your wife and put you to eat from the tree on which you di this mandate: 'You must not eat of it', cursed is the ground for your cause. With pain as their product every day of your life. And thorns and thistles will grow for you, and you have to eat the vegetation of the area. With the sweat of your face eat bread until you return to the ground, because you were taken from him. Because you are dust and to dust return."
(Genesis 3:17-19).

One thinks that the protection through the 2 cherubs must have been enough to keep Adam and Eve away and they surely were a powerful demonstration of God’s might. So one wonders why the blade of the sword is needed and mentioned…

Now the meeting of Joshua and Michael is described as follows…

13 And it came about when Joshua happened to be by Jericho that he proceeded to raise his eyes and look, and there ,there was a man standing in front of him with his drawn sword in his hand. So Joshua walked up to him and said to him: “Are you for us or for our adversaries?”” 14 To this he said: “No, but I—as prince of the army of YHWH I have now come.” With that Joshua fell on his face to the earth and prostrated himself and said to him: “What is my lord saying to his servant?” 15 In turn the prince of the army of YHWH said to Joshua: “Draw your sandals from off your feet, because the place on which you are standing is holy.” At once Joshua did so. (Joshua 5:14-15).

So Joshua too saw an angel with a drawn sword at the end of the time of the curse when he was about to lead the Israelites to the conquest of the first city in the ‘holy’ land!

The Prince of Yahweh’s army gave instructions that Joshua how to conquer the city…

2 And Jehovah went on to say to Joshua: “See, I have given Jer´i·cho and its king, the valiant mighty men, into your hand. 3 And all YOU men of war must march round the city, going round the city once. That is the way you should do for six days. 4 And seven priests should carry seven rams’ horns, before the Ark, and on the seventh day YOU should march round the city seven times and the priests should blow the horns. 5 And it must occur that when they sound with the horn of the ram, when YOU hear the sound of the horn, all the people should shout a great war cry; and the wall of the city must fall down flat, and the people must go up, each one straight before him.” (Joshua 6:2-5.)

The seven days could represent seven years starting on 2001Tishri1 and ending on 2008Elul30. Moreover, the seven rounds or circulations on the seventh day, could stand for 7 lunar cycles, months! Since the rounds were done during the 7th day, they could start 2008Nisan1 and climax on 2008Tishri1 when the wall of false religion falls.
