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"...it 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 plan...so 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 land...it 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
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;
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.
