I believe the Earth is approaching or just beyond its 6,000th birthday with Christ’s millennium the Sabbath of a Biblical week with each day representing a thousand years.  I do not believe it has to be precisely six thousand years, because Satan has been around that entire time and may know the six thousandth year to the year, but I do believe it must be fairly close.  The six thousand years span is divided into three portions of about two thousand years each:  Creation to the birth of Abram circa 2008 AC (After Creation) with the Flood in about the year 1656 AC, the second period of about two thousand years with the focus on Israel, ending with the birth of Christ, and the final third period, the era of the church, the Christian Age, i.e. the present age.  Each period approximated 40 Jubilees with the Jubilee being the fiftieth year.

I read that Abe Lincoln as a young man gave up Christianity for many years because he read Volney’s Ruins, a book by a French philosopher,...

In Revelation 20, Christ’s millennium is noted six times.  Why will Christ reign for a millennium? Because His millennium is the Shabbat or Sabbath of a Biblical week with each day a thousand years. 

Bishop James Ussher, a 17th century Anglican cleric and Bible scholar, wrote in The Annals of the World, published in 1650, that the earth was created on October 23, 4004 BC. This was Christendom’s standard for over two centuries thereafter.  Scientists estimate the age of the earth at somewhere between 4 and 6 billion years old.  The Biblical record would indicate a much shorter period of time for the age of the Earth.  Indeed, assuming a 6 day creation followed by a day of rest produces the following calculations from the Bible per Genesis 5:

King David, who reigned in Judah from about 1010 to 1003 BC and then combined his kingdom with Israel till his death in 970 BC, about a millennium before Christ’s death, wrote of His crucifixion in the 22nd Psalm.  It is curious to note that capital punishment in Israel was administered by stoning.  Crucifixion was invented by the Persians 400 to 500 years after David’s reign.  Ahasuerus, Xerxes to the Greeks, reigned in Persia from 485 to 464 BC.  During this span, the Jews’ enemy, Haman, was hanged per Esther 7:10 on a gallows 50 cubits (about 75 feet) high, but actually he was impaled. 

Psalm 22:1 “My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?  Matthew 27:46                                                                                              Why are You so far from helping Me,                                                                                                                                                             And from the words of My groan...

In my 18th blog, I thought I could see the final week in the Psalms, but I was wrong.  I read the Bible and extrapolate, and, sometimes, I am wrong.  Nonetheless, some of the Psalms of the earlier 20th  century years are quite striking, so now I try again.  I begin with Psalm 120 corresponding to the year 2020.  I began with Psalm 1 being 1901 based on the Psalms being the 19th book of the Bible, and the striking events that occurred in years thereafter, such as the Jews in Nazi Germany’s death camps in 1942- 1944 corresponding to Psalms 42 to 44.  An earlier blog covered other years such as the First Iraqi War in 1991 corresponding to Psalm 91. According to the New York Times, Psalm 91 was the favorite psalm of the Desert Stormers.  Psalm 80 (1980) is specifically to Ephraim (Britain to me), Manasseh (America to me), and Benjamin (?).  It states these tribes are in peril, and ask God to return to them by sending them a man.  There was an election in the US in 1980 which fulfilled this...

Matthew 24:29 (Christ speaking on the events of the end times) “Immediately after the (great) tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven (I suspect this will be a giant cross, perhaps like Constantine, the soon-to-be Emperor of Rome, saw just before his victory at the Milvian Bridge circa 313 AD.  Words underneath the cross were ‘In thi...

Most prophecy writing that I have read divide the final week of Daniel- 7 Biblical years of 360 days/year into two equal portions of 1260 days each.  I suspect they are wrong.  Instead, the final week of Daniel works like this. Daniel’s 70th week ends on Hanukkah, an 8- day Hebrew feast.  Daniel 12:11 notes there will be 1290 days from the time the daily sacrifice is taken away and the abomination of desolation is set up.  Now this is a problem as Daniel 7:25 & 12:7 as well as Revelation 12:6, 14 & 13:5 indicate the anti-Christ has 1260 days, the Great Tribulation, and he is toast. But it takes 30 days to rededicate a desecrated Temple according to my readings, hence the extra days.  Daniel 9:24 indicates the final event of the seventy weeks is to anoint the Most Holy, which my readings indicate is a place.  I believe that 30 days after the Great Tribulation ends would be the earliest end to the final week of Daniel.  Therefore,  Daniel’s 70th week could not be divided into two equal 1...

About 30 years ago, I came to the LORD.  I began to read the Bible regularly.  One of the things that always puzzled me was where the Muslim Arabs were in the Bible.  The Muslim Arabs say their ancestor was Ishmael, who was placed on a makeshift altar by his father Abraham as an offering to God.  Some sources say on what became the (supposed) Temple Mount in Jerusalem though most Muslims believe it was in Mecca.  The Christian Bible relates it was Isaac in the land of Moriah per Genesis 22:2.  By tradition this is where Solomon’s temple was built centuries later.

God promised Abraham the land of Canaan and also seed.  However, God took His own time as He often does, and Abram and Sarah decided to help Him.  As Sarah apparently could not have children, she gave her Egyptian maidservant to Abraham to produce the required seed per Genesis 16, a common custom for the time.  Abraham was 86 at this time.  At the age of 13 for Ishmael and 99 for Abraham, God instituted...

I believe the Bible clearly teaches that Christ’s millennium of Revelation 20 is the Sabbath millennium of a Biblical week with each millennium representing a day in the week.  I covered this in my very first writing using verses Psalm 90:4, 2 Peter 3:8, Hebrews 4:1-11, especially verse 4, and others.  There were three periods within the initial 6,000 years, each approximately 2,000 years as follows: 1. Creation with the Flood at year 1656 after creation and Abram born 2008 years after creation, 2. Then about 2,000 years of Israel till the birth of Christ,  3. Then about 2,000 years of the church.  We are at the end of this third period.  If this interpretation is correct, then Christ should soon return.  However, I first started looking for Him about 22 years ago, based on Archbishop Ussher’s several centuries ago calculation of creation beginning on 23 October, 4004 BC.  This was inscribed in many Bibles in the 1800s.  If Ussher were correct, the final or 70th week of Daniel should h...

Psalm 118 is the last of the Egyptian Hallel Psalms (113 to 118) that are sung at Passover.  Hallel means to praise.  This is likely the last psalm that Christ and His disciples sang after the Passover Seder before heading for the Mount of Olives per Matthew 26:30 and Mark 14:26.  Both report:  And when they had sung a hymn (psalm), they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Psalm 118 is the middle chapter of the Bible, and it also contains the middle verse – 118:8:  It is better to trust in the LORD, than to put confidence in man.  Chapters were first put in the Bible circa 1300 or so, and verses in English with the Geneva Bible circa 1560.  It is between the shortest chapter in the Bible, Psalm 117, and the longest chapter, Psalm 119.  

JR Church wrote a book, Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms in 1986, revised in 1990.  He believed the 150 psalms were a code in years, beginning with 1901 for the Psalm 1, 1902 for Psalm 2, 2000 for Psalm 100, 2018 for Psalm 118, a...

Prophecy to the Greek or Western man is prediction and fulfilment.  To the Jew, it is pattern.

The Jewish sages compiled the 150 psalms long ago.  We have forgotten how. They divided the Psalms into 5 books just like the Torah, or first 5 books of the Bible.  5 was the number for grace, the unmerited favor of God, and the Torah had 5 books.  They believed these 5 books could be correlated with human life.   

  

    Genesis is the book of life and election.

    Exodus is the book of redemption.

    Leviticus is the book of sanctification.

    Numbers is the book of testing and experience.

    Deuteronomy is the book of divine government. 

Or:

          Genesis                   - God forms the soul.

          Exodus                    - Birth...
