Note: Jesus will NOT return until the mystery of God is finished, (Rev.10:7, Acts.3:21) which coincides with the end of the sixth day. Then there is a 1000 year rest, the ultimate Sabbath. The seventh day! (Rev.20:5) Time is running out! The Bride is about to be completed! Note:
This study IS NOT sayingthat Jesus is returning at the year 2,000 AD. because obviously He did not. However, it does give a picture of the urgency of the hour. One thing is for sure, our generation, is the closest yet to the Marriage of Christ and His Church.
This Phase teaches the time frame that God is working within, to make Eve (the Bride Church). God always works in patterns of "weeks" or "sevens" (Gen.1-2, Exod.16:26, Lev.23; 25:1-7)Therefore it is not a strange thing that He would work six days and rest the seventh in His Redemptive plan for man (mankind, humanity). These Redemptive days are interpreted by the apostle Peter to be 1000 year days. (2 Peter.3:1-9, Psalm.90:4) Bible History confirms this. (Note: Gen.5:1-32) It reveals that there are approximately 2,000 years (2 Redemptive days) from Adam to Abraham. Abraham to Christ can be chronicled to be another 2,000 years (2 Redemptive days), which gives 4,000 years from Adam to Christ (4 days). Now it is understood why Israel was to keep the Passover Lamb (which foreshadows Christ - 1Cor.5:7-8) for 4 days before killing it in the evening. (Exod.12:1-6) When Adam sinned, Christ our Passover was taken and kept 4,000 years (4 days) and crucified at the end (i.e. the evening) of the fourth day. Our calendar (which is not accurate) places us 2,000 years AD. (another 2 days) completing almost 6,000 years since Adam, or 6 days before the Lord. Now apply the pattern that God stops working after six days, and rests the seventh. (Gen.2:1-2)
