Already Past 6000 Years Since Adam?

I enjoyed reading your article 6000 Year Timeline.
I did a similar study but came to a different conclusion. I am using this email to share my findings with you because I believe they can help us both.

I counted the geologies from when Adam & Eve were expelled to the end of the Old Testament to come to 4,167 years or the 4th day since Adam & Eve’s expulsion. Jesus Christ appeared on this earth 2006 years ago which when added to the 4,167 comes to 6,173 years since Adam & Eve’s expulsion. Since 1 day is 1,000 years to God this would be day 6.

It’s important to understand that this day 6 is not over! I don’t know when it will be over but I can tell you it wouldn’t be any longer than 827 years. Jesus said the generation that sees what he describes in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 would not pass away. I think you’d agree these things are happening now so we are the generation that is going to see those things. This means that since a generation lasts around 100 years maybe, this is just a guess the end is 82 years away?

What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks for comment and question.

Well, you may want to check your assumption that Jesus came 2006 years ago in 1 BCE. Most place it much earlier and my own conclusion based on the Star of Bethlehem (as you read if you signed up for my newsletter) is 3 BCE.

More importantly, the 7th millenial day starts at 6,001 years from adam’s rule, not 7,001 (since the 1st day is 0001 to 1000, 2nd 1001 to 2000, etc.). If we are already 6173 years from adam’s rule as you contend, then there obviously is a problem since Jesus’ rule should have begun 172 years ago. Most place Jesus coming much earlier than you do, perhaps around 3999 or 4000 years from creation, placing it at the end of the 4th millennial day from creation, just as the sun came forth on the 4th day of creation week (see Eugene Faulstich’s chonology).

Also, I’ve never heard anyone give a definition of a biblical generation that could possibly fit 100 years. The biblical generation seems to be just like we define it today, a few decades it takes for one to grow and raise children of their own. It’s not a lifespan, which is still much less than 100 years.

Hope this helps you.

What the 46% Who Believe Jesus Will Return in 2014 Don't Know But Should...

An Ipsos poll in 2006 found that 25% of adults believed it was at least "somewhat likely" that "Jesus Christ will return to Earth" in the coming year. Among white evangelical Christian adults, a whopping 46% believed this. Yet eight years later Jesus still has not returned.

    Tim:

    I agree with you that the 7th mill. day starts 6001 years from Adam’s rule and a generation is certainly not 100 years. I have never heard of a generation being given as 100 years anywhere before.
    Thanks

    After the ark of Noah, the generatin periode is 120 years, so if you make an enumeration from 1948 when the state Israel is gegun til now you have the year 2068.
    And if you have the dubble star in virgo with an rotation of 169 years than you have the year 169*12=2028

    say this numbers something in the timeline?

  3. Tim McHyde Says:

    The 120 years listed there is not a lifespan limit or generation length because people even today still live past 120 years old, as they clearly did immediately after the flood. The only fit is that it gives how many years from that point God would wait until the flood.

    When it comes to calculation of a generation, it has already been given to us in Psalm 90:10. This verse tells us that a generation is 70 years or, if by strength/good health, 80 years. This average has held since well before the birth of Christ. As for the 6,000 years, we could be in the final year right now. Please note that I said could be. To keep this brief I will just say that the Star of Bethlehem is documented as having been 3 years earlier than what has been thought (between 1 B.C. and the zero year). Going through geneologies (etc) and taking this 3 years into consideration would put the birth of Jesus at about 3997. If we add 3997 to 2008 we have 6,005 years. If we are couning the time of man or from creation (as most do) then the count should have begun from the 6th day of creation. After all, how can we justify starting the count until man is created or creation is complete – both occurring on the 6th day. If we then convert the 6 days to days of years (just as Daniel’s 70 weeks) and subtract that from the 6,005 we have the year 5,999! I’ve done a considerable amount of study on this and other markers of the timing of the end and while it would appear that we could very well be in the final year, part of these counts are according to the counting or reording of years by man. As a result it could easily be off a year or more; but we are certainly living in the very last of the end of days. Keep looking up!!

    Psalm 90:10 does not tell us how long a generation lasts. It tells us the typical life span, something different that has changed throughout time. A wicked generation is witnessed a few times in Scripture as 40 years.

    The Bible does not teach that at the end of 6000 years from Creation that the Millennium will begin. It implies that after six millennial days of man’s self-rule, God will rule through his glorified sons for a Sabbath Millenium. Since we do not know when Adam left the garden to begin his self-rule, we do not have a date we can add 6000 years to to know when Jesus will return.

  6. Reverend A.L. Parks, III Says:

    Psalm 90 gives us the answer for a human generation. There are basically 2 generations to be aware of. There is the Hebrew Royal Generation of 40 years and a human generation is 70 years, unless the person is very strong. For the purpose of a prophetic generation, we have to look at the Royal 40 Year Generation and the Human Generation of 70 years.

    End Times’ Prophecy didn’t make sense until Israel became a nation in 1947, and was recognized as a sovereign nation in 1948. This began the human generation of the timing of Messiah’s return to rapture His Church. He said that the generation that witnesses Israel’s restoration will not “pass until my return.”

    The Royal Generation didn’t come in to play prophetically until the 6 day war of Yom Kippur of 1967, which began the Time of Messiah, and ended in 2007 with the end of human rule and began the Rule of Messiah. Human rule began in the year 7, according to the Hebraic Calendar, when Adam and Eve were expelled from Eden.

    When Israel was 20 years old, the same age required of all young adults of Israel, according to the Laws of the Torah to serve in the Israeli military, she became of age “Militarily” to defeat her Arab enemies and restore Jerusalem as her capitol city. End times’ rabbis and theologians declared this to be “the time or generation of Messiah.”

    This Time of Messiah ran in tandem with the 6000 years of man’s rule in these last days. Human Rule on this planet ended in 2007 and the Rule of Messiah began in 2008 during this year of renewal. Every 8th year of the Hebrew Calendar announces a new beginning after the 7th year of Jubilee ends.

    Looking at the Feasts of Israel as guides for Prophetic Fulfillment, with the last 3 about to be fulfilled on the Hebraic Prophetic Calendar, we should experience the Rapture of the Church during Tishri 10, when the 2nd and Final Trumpet of the Almighty is sounded that calls us into Assembly with the Lord Jesus in the Clouds. This is supported by 1st Corinthians 15, 2nd Thessalonians 4 and Revelation 4:1.

  7. Tim McHyde Says:

    Reverend all such calculations and schemes have failed in history and will continue to fail because Jesus said no man knows the time of his coming, including himself. Since he was the Word of God, we can’t use a subset of that (the Bible) to do better than him. Besides, Jesus said “this generation” he was speaking to, not “that generation”. Finally, the parable of the fig tree is not a prophecy. It’s telling you that watch for all he said to know when he’s coming just as leaves tell you summer is coming. He did not say to watch or count “a generation”. Hope this helps you see the error and futility of doing such calculations off years and generations. Instead watch for the signs he told us to just as the parable of the fig tree instructs: http://www.escapeallthesethings.com/sign-of-the-end.htm

  8. Reverend A.L. Parks, III Says:

    Tim, throughout prophetic scripture the Fig Leaf has always been a reference to Israel. In the Greek, the emphatic statement that “this generation will not pass away until all things take place” was referring not only to the rebirth of Israel, the Fig Leaf, but all of the things in that context, such: wars, and rumors of war; oceanic flooding; cataclysmic changes in the atmosphere; and, famines and earthquakes will be the beginning of birth pangs for His return to this dimension of space and time.

    As for the “day and the hour” no one knows refers to the beginning of the Jewish Civil New Year on the first day of Tishri, when the civil new year can’t be called into reality until the first sliver of the new moon has been sighted. That was Jesus’ hint to His return. Western thinking theology believes we can’t make predictions on His Second Coming, but all prophecy centers around the sovereign state of Israel which has never completely existed as it does today, even under Kings David and Solomon which as kings of Israel were establishing her until Rehaboam became king and fractured her as a fledgeling nation with over taxation.

    We have seen 50 prophetic jubiliees since Israel’s fall in 70 A.D. which was destroyed 40 years, a royal generation, after she rejected her Messiah, King Jesus. When Israel became a nation in 1947, and was recognized as a Sovereign State in 1948, she started fulfilling Ezekiel 37 and at the same time started the End Times’ Time Clock.

    It is not my “error” in reconing, but the Western mindset of prophecy. When we look at the Prophetic Calendar of Israel and take a closer look at the Hebraic mindset that Prophecy actually manifests, then we can see prophecy more clearly. Most Christians misuse the statement “no man knows the time or the hour” as an excuse to not be rapture ready, because they love their lives here more than wanting to be with Jesus. That’s why Paul said that the “Crown of Righteousness” is reserved only for those who in love with Jesus’ Return. That’s also why the Western thought of the doctrine of the Rapture is incorrect, that all Christians will be raptured. Only those who remain “Rapture Ready” will be removed from this dimension of darkness and into the Heavenly one when Jesus comes back in the clouds to snatch His Bride out of this world.

    We as Western thinking believers miss out on rich understanding of Prophecy because most of us don’t understand the Hebraic viewpoint behind prophecy. Daniel said that those who are wise will understand the times of the end. Taking on the Hebraic viewpoint to prophecy adds to our knowledge and gives us revelation of Wisdom concerning the times we are facing.

  9. Tim McHyde Says:

    Reverend, none of those theories matter here. You simply seemed to have missed that the parallel in Luke 21:29-31 says “the fig tree and ALL THE TREES”. This means it cannot be about watching Israel alone as some prophetic marker as you imagine with your “Hebrew mindset”. It means that “Just as ALL THE TREES that sprout leaves do so before summer to let you know it is near, likewise, when you see all these signs and events I described, know I am near”. Any person of any mindset can see that. End of discussion. (please).

    The 6000 years will end year 2028.

    http://bki.net/6000/6000aar.html

    The 6000 years are divided into exactly 2000-2000-2000
    or 40 jubilees- 40-40

  11. Katega Says:

    Now that Adam is only about 6000 years, it is nonsense to to call him the first human being. We have a lot of evidence to support the fact that there were people in Afrika so many thousands of years before the supposed Adam. Adam must be an imaginery person. Pyramids in Egypt are a lot older than Adam. The bible must be telling lies about this story.

  12. Arlene Says:

    I think a lot of people worry about events in the bible
    when all each person need do is love God and treat each
    other with kindness. Course in Miracles says this world
    is already over, helping each other get through it is
    what it’s all about. Edgar Cayce says Jesus was here before the Bethlaham trip, the first time he was Adam.
    And I love reading Emanuel Swedenborg, just reading,
    not debating. Thank You God, I know I have a long way
    to go, I send you all a smile of encouragement~

  13. John Kurian Says:

    This generation shall not pass away until all be fulfilled.Vast majority of Jesus prophecies fulfilled during His generation. His generation saw the persecution,imprisonment n martyrdom of His followers, As prophet Agabus prophesied they all went through famine, saw the Roman army surrounded Jerusalem,went through starvation being surrounded by the Roman army, they saw the war, destruction of the temple. What Jesus has been talking about was that His own generation shall not pass away till all these(many of them) fulfilled though rest of the prophecies will fulfill in the future.His generation has seen much of the prophecies fulfilled. That why Jesus waited 37 years for d destruction of the temple.

  14. Tim McHyde Says:

    Agreed, John. See http://www.escapeallthesethings.com/parable-of-the-fig-tree.htm where I talk about “this” generation.

  15. Tim Kennedy Says:

    Has anyone considered that man’s true generation with Adam’s generation could have been possibly 1000 yrs. 1000 years fits the different themes of time in the Bible also. A day to God is like 1000 years, well that is how the Bible generations have divided it to also (Adam-Noah/Noah-Abraham/Abraham-David/David-Jesus/ Jesus-The Church and Holy Spirit/The Church and Holy Spirit-Israel and Jesus return/ Jesus return- Millennium. Seven true generations, the last is the best in the Millennium. Think about it, the Trees that we are suppose to live as long as ,live in this time frame. 1000 years supports God’s time line, and helps support what Jesus was saying to us about end times. 7 would equal rest, which we can all say Amen to.. 1000 years of rest for the earth with Jesus’s reign. So let us keep seeking God’s wisdom through his Holy Spirit, and continue to seek His Face. I am sure that we are not that far away, and I am sure it will be in each one of ours generation, because they all belong to the one we serve. Thanks be to God that we live in the time that Jesus covered the believers with his life, and now we can rejoice in his resurrection. We are just a breath away my friend’s, continue the good living sacrifice through the abundance of Love he shares.. Timothy K.

  16. Tim McHyde Says:

    If 100 years does not make sense, why would 1000? Jesus said this generation will not pass until all these things take place. Since the things took place exactly 40 years later in AD 70, which is the most likely definition of a generation (40 years wandering the desert till that wicked generation died off), it’s really not a mystery.
