Ancient Paths - God's 7000 Yr Plan for Mankind

Understanding the 7000 year Plan of GOD

Understanding the 7000 year Plan of GOD

Dispensationally….based on II Peter 3:8 (1 day = 1000yrs), ….there were 4000 yrs before Jesus and 2000 yrs after approx….6 days for man to rule and the 7th day (rest) God will rule and reign. We know this as the "Millennium" is the time when Yeshua (Jesus) will set up His throne in Jerusalem...Rev 20:1-7, Isaiah 65:25 and Isaiah 9:6-7, Zechariah 14:16

READ EZEKIEL 46:1 - Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.

In other words, mankind has 6 days or 6000 yrs on this earth to work.  The 6000 yrs began the day Adam was formed. Tracing the genealogies & timeframes in Genesis, there were 4000 yrs before Yeshua came the first time...and now in 2013, there have been approx. 2000 yrs or 2 days since he came the first time. We are right at the end of the 6000 yr period...and we are about to enter the 7th day (Millinneum and what Sabbath day points to) which begins with the door of heaven being opened and the Lord's coming the second time!

According to Exodus 12, God instructed His people to set aside a lamb 4 days before it was sacrificed as the Passover lamb...from the 10th to the 14th of the first month. This of course is a type and shadow that pointed to Yeshua the Lamb of God who was to come and die for the salvation of mankind. Again, note that dispensationally the 4 days = 4000 yrs in God's we see that from creation to when Yeshua died on the cross there were 4000 yrs...and the Bible declares in Revelation 13:8 that He was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world!  What a picture the scripture paints for us!

Look at Hosea scripture….after 2 days (Jews return)

HOSEA 6:1-2 - 1  Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

 2  After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

 3   Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Again, this scripture speaks of the approx. 2000 yrs after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD with the Jews being torn from their homeland...that Israel would be brought back into their is being fulfilled before our eyes!  It also speaks of the Lord's coming in His seasons like the rain to the earth.

Below is an amazing passage of scripture in Isaiah that is probably one of the if not the greatest proof for pre-tribulation rapture in the Bible.  What's also amazing is that this same pattern can be seen in the book of Revelation...I've tried to show how they parallel each other below.

ISAIAH 26:19-21 - 19 Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body[b] they shall arise…….Resurrection of righteous dead…parallels
Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust;                   I Thess. 4:16
For your dew is like the dew of herbs,
And the earth shall cast out the dead.

Take Refuge from the Coming Judgment

20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,…..........Parallels Psalm 26:5; Revelations 4
And shut your doors behind you;
Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment.........Parallels Revelations 6-18 (the indignation
Until the indignation is past.                       or Tribulation period, time of Jacob's Trouble)!
21 For behold, the Lord comes out of His place…………. Parallels Rev 19                   
To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;....
The earth will also disclose her blood,                               
And will no more cover her slain.

Q – SO WHAT THEN IS THE 8TH DAY? – The 8th day represents eternity…that’s why the Hebrews circumcised all their male children on the 8th day…8 represents wholeness, completeness!  Circumcision means to cut around or in a circle. It was the sign of the blood covenant between YHWH and His people Israel.  Also, a circle has no beginning or end…the symbol of eternity…he’s made eternal covenant with His people!


See Teaching on YHWH's Seasons/Festivals for additional information regarding the 7000 year plan...the Festivals are the key to understanding the Last Days!

Elul is the 6th month on the Jewish calendar and Tishri or Tishrei is the 7th month...there is a lot of symbolism in these timeframes that is discussed in detail in the teaching on YHWH's festivals as well.

The clock starts on 3970 the year Adam sinned in the garden. That give us 6 thousand years to the year 2030. Some say 2028. Really close.

Bruce Laplante 05.05.2021 08:52

Thank u Lewis for your comment! Can u please explain how or where u got the date 3970? Thanks again !

James Ussher was wrong. Not 4,004 to birth of Messiah BUT 4,000/1 to Jesus` all import death & resurrection for us who trust in Him C.f. 80 Jubilees + 40 = 120.

There are indeed 2,000 Y`s from the crucifixion to 2nd advent. How is it you are Pre-trib 7 years before-1,993 between. Is this date setting & imminence in 1 ?

Bruce Laplante 26.09.2020 18:41

Great comments Glen!...thanks for the additional insight!

Glen 26.09.2020 18:17

I personally will be looking for the 7 Y Trib to start Tishri 10 in 2,026 plus or minus 1-2 years at most. Tishri 10 + 3.5 Y`s = Nisan 10 = Antichrists entry.

Glen 26.09.2020 18:11

If however it turns out the crucifixion was earlier or latter than AD. 33 it is still + 1,993 to start of Trib + 7 to = 2,000 Y`s to 2nd advent + 1,000 Y reign.

Glen 26.09.2020 18:06

And IF, I say again IF Jesus is coming back AD. 2033 ? THEN the 7 Year Tribulation will BEGIN AD. 2,026. 33 + 2,000 Y`s ( 2 "DAYS") = 2,033 Minus 7 = AD 2,026.

Glen 26.09.2020 17:54

This means IF, & I say again IF Jesus/Yeshua died in AD. 33? His return back to the Mt of Olives is expected in 2,033? THEN Satan bound for Literal 1,000 years.

Glen 26.09.2020 17:49

It is 1993 Y`s from Year of Crucifixion until 7 Y Trib starts. The 7 Y Trib has not yet started but when it does it will end 2,000 Y`s from the crucifixion year

What is the article? But again, to have three separate Personalities in one being is not reflected in God's creation. Romans 1 says the Godhead can be seen

21.05 | 06:57

The Father is the invisible God who robed Himself in flesh (son). 1 Tim. 3:16 The Holy Spirit is Christ within us not a separate person. Colossians 1:27

21.05 | 06:51

Yes in John 14:26 he says that but then in John15:26 turns rt around and says: "whom I will send from the Father". Man is spirit, body and soul but one person

Thanks for your comment Glenda. This phrase was spoken by Jewish bridegroom's. Yeshua identified himself as the bridegroom of Israel. See wedding customs articl
