The number 84

The number 84 represents the completion of affliction/tribulation throughout the Timeline. The affliction/tribulation was finalized when the number 84 came into view.
Such as the 84th year, day or even hour.

                                  The second example we find is within the 1st great tribulation of Jacob

Jacob's great tribulation lasted for 7 years. It began with 23 months within the Promised Land. The 2nd part then consisted of 61 months within Egypt.
Combined, these two parts equal 84 months. Their affliction of servitude for food to Egypt continued until their 84th month.

Genesis 45:6   For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

The third example we find is the 3rd part of Jacob's great tribulation
The Israelites exited Egypt during the 3rd part of their great tribulation. Moses' brother, Aaron was 83 years old.
Their full 3-part great tribulation came to completion 13 months later as they celebrated their first mandatory
Passover Feast outside of Egypt. This was within Aaron's 84th year. Their Tribulation came to an end.

Exodus 7:7   And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.

Numbers 9:1   And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
Numbers 9:2   Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.
Numbers 9:3   In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.
Numbers 9:4   And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.
Numbers 9:5   And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

                            The first example we find is with Anna the prophetess
                                   Anna was a faithful woman to the Lord. Her husband died after 7 years of marriage.
                                   She then lived in affliction as a widow for an additional 84 years.

Luke 2:36   And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
Luke 2:37   And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.

Anna's life also is a picture of great tribulation
Her 7 years of life with her earthly husband was a perfect harmony of two individuals in marriage. Just as Israel was the wife of God and the church the Bride.
And her 84 years of affliction without life with her husband compare to both Judah's and the Church's great tribulations (840 months/8400 days) without God.

                          The fifth example we find is within our Final Great Tribulation

The first two parts of our Final Great Tribulation consisted of the 1st 2300 Days and the 2nd part 6100 Days.
Together they equalled 8400 Days which was an exact 23 years. These 8400 Days ended on Judgment Day.

Daniel 8:13   Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
Daniel 8:14   And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed (40 years after Israel once again became a nation  -> 1988).

Matthew 24:32   Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh (the 50 year Jubilee of 1994).

2 Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Luke 17:26-27
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. (7,000 years after Noah's Flood = 2011)

The sixth example concerns the 2 Witnesses
As we have seen the first two parts of our Final Great Tribulation consisted of 8400 Days.
The 2 Witnesses were silenced for a symbolic 3 1/2 Days ( the 1st part - 2300 Days).
These symbolic "3 1/2 Days" equalled exactly 84 hours.

Revelation 11:9   And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

Revelation 11:10   And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

Revelation 11:11   And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

                                   The fourth example we find is within the great tribulation of Judah

Judah's great tribulation lasted for 70 years. It began with 23 years within the Promised Land. The 2nd part then consisted of 47 years within Egypt.
Combined, these two parts equalled 840 months. Their affliction of servitude to Babylon continued until their 840th month.

Jeremiah 25:11   And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

Daniel 9:2   In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
