2 Days in Scripture

An amazing chart that unlocks a hidden Biblical truth

When God created the world in six literal 24-hour days and rested on the seventh, He gave us a template of time designated for the earth. This seven-day creation template is hugely valuable in seeing where we’ve been and where we’re headed.

It’s really very simple—on the first four days, no life was created. Life was created on Days 5 and 6. And God rested on the seventh 24-hour day. So the template is four days without life, two days with life and a day of rest.

Now to God, a day is “like” a thousand years. Not “is,” but “like.”

“But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.” 2Peter 3:8

So if we take our creation template and apply the “1000 years is like one day,” we get a fascinating 7000-year map or timeline for mankind’s days on Earth (See chart below). And the timeline fits like a glove.

For example, according to Ussher's Chronology, it was almost exactly 4000 years of elapsed time from Adam to when Jesus arrived, bringing “life” and the Church Age. And we know that Jesus will reign 1000 years as King of Earth after the Church Age, which is the last day of God's timeline.

Consider this verse that only makes sense using this timeline.

“Come, let us return to the Lord. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, that we may live before Him. Hos. 6:1-2

That’s an unfulfilled prophecy about Israel being scattered, torn and wounded for two days and then "returning"/"raised" back up on the third day. But, if we apply our creation model template, it translates to: God will scatter the Jews for about 2000 years before He brings them back to their homeland where they will live with their Messiah for 1000 years.

You can see this template hidden in other verses too.
John 4:40 So when the Samaritans [non-Jews] came to Jesus, they were asking Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.John 4:43 After the two days He went forth from there into Galilee.
This is the only place the Bible records Jesus staying with non- Jews—and wouldn't you know it, He stayed with the non-Jews for TWO DAYS!
John 11:39 Jesus said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there will be a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
Lazarus was dead for four days--four days of no life--then revived on the fifth day.
You can also see this pattern in John 2:1, “On the third day there was a wedding…” After the 2-day Church Age, on the third day, the Millennium, Believers have a wedding—the Church is the Bride of Christ! This happens at the beginning of the Millennium, the third day on God's timeline.
Rev. 19:7 “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.”
And one more that’ll blow your mind:
“The Lord also said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments; and let them be ready for the third day, for on the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.” Ex. 19:10-11
The two-day Church Age is the period of time where our sins are washed away (Acts 22:16). And the Jews are to be ready for the Lord to “come down” and reign as King of Earth “in the sight of all.” Amazing!
Applying this to today, Jesus died around 30 AD. So if you add 2 days/2,000 years, it points to this generation being quite blessed with a non-physical-death exit! We won’t know the day or the hour, but we should be able to see the equivalent of Noah loading the animals on the ark!Shalom!
