The Bible presents a succession of types and parables which dramatic the power of the Truth. Unless we seek for those types and parables, we will not discover them, for they will pass by before our eyes unnoticed. However, once we begin to understand the Bible’s parabolic language, we will see a fuller and deeper meaning.
When God created the earth and placed man on it, He did it with a very definite plan. It was His intention to have the entire earth inhabited by people that would glorify Him. “But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.” (Numbers 14:21)
God set a timetable for the completion of His plan to fill the earth with glory. God has already been given a revelation of times and seasons. Throughout the Bible, we are provided with a number of clues about the times and seasons for this plan.
Have you ever wondered why the Bible records the ages of people all the way back to Adam? Or why it records the numbers of years the Kings of Israel ruled? It seems God wanted us to be able to count the years from creation.
Historical records indicate that almost 6000 years have elapsed since the recreation of the earth and almost 2000 years since the death of Jesus Christ.
The Bible shows a summary of the overall outline of God’s 7000 year plan, presented without reference to any actual dates.
It’s starts with the 7 day creation story and reveals God’s 7,000 year master time plan for earth. God has allotted approximately 6000 years for humanity to go its own way. These millenniums of human civilization are nearly over. God is about to intervene in world affairs by sending Jesus Christ.
This time of rest is also described as the Kingdom of God on the earth. What universal changes Jesus will bring ? The whole world will return to God and His teachings; the entire Jewish People will be gathered back to the Land of Israel; the royal dynasty of King David will be restored; Jerusalem and the Third Temple will be rebuilt; the Temple service will be restored, along with the keeping of the Sabbatical Year and the Jubilee Year! The millennial kingdom will be filled with glory, peace, prosperity, righteousness, and justice. Jesus Christ will literally rule this entire earth from the city of Jerusalem in Israel. The Saints who are found worthy and granted eternal life when Christ returns, “shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” (Revelation 20: 4-6)
A fascinating area of study for many of us is trying to piece together the events which follow the return of Christ through to the establishment of the Kingdom. Christ instructed those who would observe the signs of the times. “What I say unto you I say unto all, Watch” (Mark 13:37). Would Christ ever ask his believers to engage in an unfruitful task ? Certainly not. Nor would he ask them to engage in an impossible task. How could they watch the signs of the times if unable to discern their application and significance? Jesus labelled those in Israel who could not apprehend the signs of the times in their own day, as “hypocrites” (Matthew 16:3). Obviously, Jesus expects his believers to discern those signs of the times that are revealed in scripture.
All of these established types, shadows, figures, allegories, signs, and parables tell us that we can insert the key and unlock other such like treasures of the mysteries of the Kingdom contained in the Bible. Many “parables” are not directly, but are “hid” that the sincere seeker search out to find them in the Bible (Proverbs 25:2).
There are many ‘pictures’, ‘shadows’, and ‘types’ in the Bible that would seem to confirm the 7000-year theory.
- King Solomon had 6 steps to his throne chair and the 7th step was a type of Jesus to sit upon the throne to rule.
- After 6 days, Jesus took his closest disciples up into a mountain and was transfigured (a picture of the second advent) before them.
- After 6 days, Jesus went to the wedding feast in Cana on the 7th day.
- King Joash was the rightful king of Israel but who was hidden in the temple of God for 6 years while an imposter reigned Queen Athaliah. At the beginning of the 7th year, the King was brought forth to set on his rightful throne, and the usurper was put to death.
- Slaves worked for 6 years and 7th year was freedom.
- The list goes on.
Many other instances in the Bible that reflect a similar kind of timeline such as the six and a distinct seventh pattern.
The bible chronology shows there were approximately 2000 years from Adam’s creation until Abraham and 2000 years from Abraham until the death of Jesus Christ, or 4000 years from Adam to Christ’s death. There will be 2 days, or 2000 years from Christ’s death till the Second Coming seem to be confirmed by Biblical analogies.
Let us examine and explore the chronology of the scriptures and all of these connections, so in this way, we are able to pinpoint when will Jesus return! Let’s find out what God is trying to show us something in the bible!
Jesus answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.” (Matthew 12:39, Matthew 16:4, and, Luke 11:29) – The Lord Jesus treated the book of Jonah as both parable and historical. Ask yourself the question! Why Jesus mention “the sign of Prophet Jonah”?
Jonah was preaching to the Ninevites as a foreshadowing of Jesus was preaching to Jerusalem. Jonah warned Nineveh of certain destruction in 40 days if they didn’t turn from the imaginations of their evil hearts an to the true, living God. They repented and the city was spared. In contrast, Jesus came preaching the gospel of the kingdom to the Jewish nation, but unlike the Ninevites, the Jews, as a whole, rejected the good news of Jesus Christ. This led to His crucifixion in 30 AD. 40 years later in 70 AD, the city of Jerusalem fell and the temple was destroyed thus fulfilling the prophecy found in the Book of Jonah.
Clearly, it gave us the hint as we are able to look back in the history. In our history proved that Jerusalem was destroyed on AD 70, therefore Christ’s death was on A.D. 30 (40 years as the sign of Prophet Jonah).
If you count 2000 year of gentile time from AD 30 is Year 2030. Therefore, it is a few years away from 2030 AD. 30 AD is the beginning of the 5000 AM, 2030 is 7000 AM.
How we know that Christ will return in 2000 years from his death and resurrection ? The bible clearly said it will be 2000 years. Here are very important verses that God already revealed to us…
“After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life); on the third day He will raise us up that we may live before Him.”
AFTER Two Days is allegory of two thousand years of the Gentile time! AFTER means after 2000 Years is done which means from AD 30 to AD 2030 of the Gentile time.
ON the THIRD DAY – “ON” means the beginning of the 7,000th year which means 2030 AD which Christ and the Saints returns to revive the land of Israel and saved survival Jewish people!
“3 and they commanded the people, saying, “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. 4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.”
“space between you and it (Ark), about 2000 cubits” – 2000 cubits represent 2000 years! God foretold them that they will enter the land 2000 years later after the first coming of Christ (Ark represent Christ at his first coming) then 2000 years later, the second coming of Christ will bring the saints, and Jewish people will enter the land of Israel as a permanent resident!
And also this pattern is this historical parable-prophecy is comforting to our present generation as that congregation was told to wait about 2000 cubits away as the ark of the covenant’s presence in the water reversed the flow of the water backwards from the mouth of the Dead Sea all the way to the city of Adam. This parallels how the faithful (all the way back to Adam) would wait about 2,000 years from Christ’s death to when we would join him in the promised land!
39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.
“He stayed there two days” – 2 days represent the 2000 years of Christ preaching among the Gentiles. (2000 years of the Gentile time).
On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’
“two denarii” and “I will come again” – two denarii represent 2000 years. A parable tells us that when Jesus depart and clearly said, he will return in 2000 years later!
Genesis 41 –
Gen. 41:1 – “Then it came to pass, at the end of two full years…”
Gen 41:39-42 – “Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.” And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”
Amazing! The story of Joseph is a prophetic antitype that in 2000 years (end of two full years), Jesus Christ will return to establish the Kingdom to rule over his brethren and the world.
Interesting ? There is more…
The book of Genesis scripture showed that God created fishes and then birds on the 5th day.
The language in the account is astounding. The story of Jonah where Jonah was buried at the fish’s belly in the deep sea which the fish is a type of sinful flesh human being. Typically all mankind is represented by fishes. All humans are struggling and drowning in the grave (sea) of humanity. Sea-Life or Fish was the first of the God’s animal creation. In a prophetical sense, the fish represent the Lord Jesus Christ, who was the first creation from the dead (Col. 1:15-18). Waters can represent the grave (Revelation 20:13, Psalms 69). Yahweh delivered Jesus by spoke and raised him up out of the typical waters, the grave. The bird is a symbol of bringing life out of waters to typify resurrection and free from death forever.
Exactly like Jonah, who was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights, was a major antitype of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So Christ’s death and resurrection occurred at the beginning of the exact year 5,000TH (on the beginning of the exact 5th day) which is AD 30.
The amazing secret is Jesus’ death, burial & resurrection absolutely occurred on 4,000th year of history on Earth! Knowing Jesus’ death occurred on AD 30 (exact beginning of the 5th day on Creation) allows me to say with certainty Jesus will come back EXACTLY 2,000 years (on the beginning of the exact 7th day on Creation which is AD 2030).
Again, 30 AD is the beginning of the 5000 AM, 2030 is 7000 AM. 2000 years from AD 30 is 2030. 2030 AD is the beginning of the 7,000th year.
The time cannot be hastened nor delayed. It is a SET PROPHETIC TIME! Yahweh was punctuating the reality of His 7000 years master time plan which He had secretly foretold from the beginning in the 7 days Creation narrative!
Now based upon this calculation, we expect the 6000 years creation plan to end in few years away, and Jesus Christ to return in 2030 A.D.
HOWEVER, based on the pattern as seen in the Creation week, Adam and Eve were married on the sixth day of the creation. The marriage in Eden foreshadows the marriage of Jesus Christ and his Saints that will take place at nearly the end of 6,000th year which is BEFORE the 7th day (Year 2030)!
Therefore, based on the scripture and the parable of the 7 days Creation that Christ will be return BEFORE the 7th day (Year 2030) to judge on his own household first (1 Peter 4:17) then Jesus (bridegroom) will take unto himself the multitudinous saints as his bride and institute a period of joyous fraternization among the whole company of the Redeemed. (Deuteronomy 24:5).
Revelation 14:14-20 makes it clear that there will be a Jubilee period of fifty years between the return of Christ and the inauguration of the Millennium.
According to the Revelation 14:15,16, Harvest of the Earth represents the first 10 year period of the 50 years Jubilee year is from the return of Christ to his triumphant conquering of the Russia and their confederated armies and redemption of the Land of Israel.
John Thomas in Eureka speak on the Harvest of the Earth – “The scene beheld represents events subsequent to the descent of Christ Jesus, and the resurrection and immortalization; and before they obtain possession of the Holy City. This is the epoch of the vision; and synchronizes with the concluding period of the Sixth Vial, and coeval with the gathering of the kings of the earth and their armies “into the place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon”.”
2030 minus 10 years equal 2020! This is a proof that the year of 2020 was the Jubilee year! Meaning Christ had already returned in the year of 2020!
Hard to believe that Jesus returned in 2020? Please take a closer look at the article “1 Thessalonians 4:16,17” that will give you an insight of the “Harvest of the Earth” chronological sequence of events that will take place from the second advent of Jesus Christ to the Armageddon that are already foretold by God and described in the Bible.
Now, according to the prophetic teachings of the Apocalyptic epistles reveal that the 50 year period of the Judgement begins in the sixth millennial day-period (2020). This threshing process will continue well into the seventh period (2030 and after that). Within 50 years Judgement period, there are two smaller sub-periods. The first is an epoch of 10 years (Harvest of the Earth) which is contained in the sixth millennial day (end of 6000th year – start at 2020), then 10 years interval to give the world last chance to repeat (at the beginning of 7000th year – 2030) right after Armageddon then the final 30 years of Judgement (Vintage of the Earth) which is contained in the seventh millennial day (begins at 2040 – end at 2070). 2070 will be the Jubilee year to open the Temple and all nations will come to worship.
The Temple will be opened for use by all nations and the Millennial reign of Christ will begin in the fiftieth year after his stealthy and thief-like return to resurrect and judge the household. This Jubilee period will be filled with numerous dramatic and world-shaking events which will completely change the world and its civilization in preparation for a Millennium of righteousness and peace (2 Pet. 3:13).
And also according to Ezekiel 40 VERSE 1 – “In the five and twentieth year of our captivity” – i.e. the 25th year of Jehoiachin’s captivity (Ezekiel 1:2).
Ezekiel is very precise as to the particular day upon which the hand of the Lord was upon him. He mentions the day, the month, and the year : in the five and twentieth year, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the self-same day, or, as it may be well expressed, IN THAT VERY DAY, the hand of the Lord was upon me.
The year was the 14th after the destruction of Jerusalem which occurred in the 11th year of Zedekiah the successor of Jehoiachin upon the throne of Judah. The significance of the 25th year of Jehoiachin’s captivity is that it was apparently a Jubilee year. Ezekiel commenced his prophecy by dating it from the 18th year of Josiah’s reign (Ezekiel 1:1; 2 Chronicles. 35). This was the year of Josiah’s great Passover and according to tradition was a Jubilee year. This would account in part for Josiah’s zeal towards the Temple and people despite the absence of a copy of the Law, during this year of his reign. The 25th year of Jehoiachin’s captivity was exactly 50 years after the 18th year of Josiah and therefore a Jubilee year. In that year Ezekiel saw the Temple completed and in use.
It is noteworthy that at the commencement of this section of his prophecy and immediately following the section dealing with the destruction of Gog and the cleansing of the Land Ezekiel provides a precise date upon which he saw the vision of the Temple – Ezekiel 40:1. Therefore the building will be completed in a year of jubilee. By that Year 2070, the Temple will be finished and opened for public worship.
Amazing math is that 2070 is exact 2000 years from AD 70 where the Temple was destroyed by the Romain Armies!
Now the Jubilee year 2070 minus 50 is 2020! 2020 is the year for Christ returns!!! How exciting!
It is an inescapable, unavoidable fact that Jesus Christ has already returned in 2020! Based on the scripture, Jesus has already returned secretly, silently, and unheralded as in a manner of thief. Jesus steals into the world to resume his works. His first work is a work of Judgement on his own house of God first (1 Peter 4:17).
Then in the Year 2030, Christ and his Saints will march from the region of Sinai to Jerusalem to face the Russian and their confederated armies at the apex of the Armageddon. (Deuteronomy 33:2-3; Psalm 68; Habakkuk 3:3-4). After victory in the battle of Armageddon, Jesus and the saints will inherit the land of Israel and by extension the whole earth. And also Jesus and the Saints are going to be setting up a 1000 year Millennium Kingdom in which Jesus and the Saints will literally rule over the entire earth from the city of Jerusalem, the throne of the Lord.
Here is the story of Nobleman’s son in John 4:46-53 is a prophetic parable that would confirm the event of Christ and the saints will arrive at Jerusalem to rescue the Jewish leaders and the Jewish people at 2030 AD. Nobleman represents the Jewish Leaders. Son represents the nation of Israel. They were in desperate, helpless, and hopeless. Israel is at the point of extinction, humbled by the invasion of Russia and their confederated armies. Jewish leaders heard the Messiah arrive. They came to him and ask for help. At the seventh hour, Jesus rescue and healed them! The seventh Hour represent the exact 7000th year which is 2030 AD!
A time of trouble in the last days in Year 2020 was the beginning! This “time of trouble” is contemporary with the resurrection of a portion of the dead.
Before 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic was almost unknown and unheard of. The Covid-19 pandemic began in the Year of 2020 and then everything changed!! The way in which the pandemic has swept through every continent and most countries has been overwhelming and without precedent. The Coronavirus pandemic is now affecting every part of the world, disrupting people’s lives and creating fear, anxiety, sorrow and hardship. And also the spirits of madness destabilize the world. It already is the worst time of suffering and distress ever to occur since the beginning of the creation. World conditions are alarming. Human society is still deteriorating and on track for a collapse! The continual coronavirus pandemic with new strains of the virus appearing shows no sign of abating.
The world is still being rocked by the effects of Russia invading and attacking Ukraine. Russia is seeking to recreate a Soviet-style empire with its security buffers with the West. Global politicians chaos is in intensify. Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, inflation is on the rapid increase in food and energy prices hitting record highs. And also it has caused a shortages of food supplies around the world. An uncertain future looms on the horizon. It already begin to developing the early stage of the Armageddon until the Russians launch their attack at about the same time as the living saints will be gathering away to the place of judgement at Mt. Sinai (Revelation 16:15,16).
It is certainly a fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy when “there will be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, up to that time…” (Daniel 12:1). Jesus Christ return at a time of unparalleled chaos involving both Israel and the Gentiles (Luke 21:25,26; Revelation 11:18).
John Thomas in Eureka – “This will be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation to that same time” (Daniel 12:1) – the antitype of the great Pentecostian Day of Atonement, in which the Trumpet of the Jubilee shall sound (Lev. 25:9). The second and third angels of this fourteenth chapter (Revelation 14) are the executors of the judgement written in this “great day of God Almighty (Rev. 16:14)……”
I provided extensive Biblical evidence to supporting the fact that the year of 2020 was the Jubilee year. So it is that Christ comes in a Jubilee year, and the temple is finished in a Jubilee year! This means that within that 50 years period, we have to fit in 10 years leading up to Armageddon war, and then 10 years preaching to the nations after Armageddon war, and then 30 years of the Judgement and warfare!
Now why we are still here?
Please go deeper into the article “1 Thessalonians 4:16,17” that will give you an insight of the chronological sequence of events that will take place at the second advent of Jesus Christ that are already foretold by God and described in the Bible.
The truth is the sixth thousandth year is not yet complete, but very soon! When this number is complete, the consummation must take place! It is an inescapable fact that we are on the verge of closing out the 6th millennial day on Earth! The Bible is sprinkled from front to back cover with prophetic clues about how this 6th millennial day will come to an end!
