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.
