Absolute dates can be elusive, but the hunt for them is wonderfully fascinating!


It is the glory of יהוה to conceal a thing; but the glory of kings is to search out a matter. (Pro 25:2)


Dates allow us to place historical events in relative position to other events, which in turn paints pictures of the world before our time. The goal of the Tetra Scroll is to present the most accurate dates possible while providing a visual timeline that merges secular history with Bible history, helping us grasp it as never before!


Dates as they relate to Bible Prophecy have always been of particular interest. In the sections to follow, you will discover some interesting facts about where we are "In the time of the end." Grab your Bibles and prepare for an amazing journey!

Calculating Adam's Creation

Calculating Adam's Creation

Adam and Eve and Gregorian and Hebrew Date Columns

Can we really know Adam's creation date?

Yes! Our Heavenly Father is the revealer of secrets. (Dan 2:28)

When He is ready for a thing to be known He reveals it into the Earth. Below is the scriptural road map that reveals Adam's creation date. It has been hidden in scripture all along, yet few have ever seen it. How can that be?

One reason is that it took seeing the Gregorian dates beside the Hebrew dates in order to reveal the timing of certain events--namely, how old Abraham was when he received the 400 year prophecy. This is one of the keys to unlocking the date of Adam's creation. 

The End of 6000 Years

the end of 6000 years



The following information is for your consideration and is not included on the scroll. Daniel 12:4, 10 says...  "But you, Daniel, hide the words, and seal up the book until the time of the end. Many shall diligently search and knowledge shall increase. Many shall be cleansed and made white, and refined. But the wrong shall do wrong--and none of the wrong shall understand, but those who have insight shall understand."

It is true; no one knows the day or the hour the Messiah will return, but He never said we wouldn't know the year. In fact, scripture shows that we will know the year in advance: Think about this... When the antichrist enters the Temple at the mid-point of the seven-year tribulation, those who are living at that time will KNOW that the end, the time the Messiah will return at Armageddon to bind Satan for 1000 years, is exactly 3 1/2 years away. They will KNOW the year of Messiah's return and the beginning of the 7th Millennium, but not the day or the hour.


Is it possible to know the year before we are halfway into the great tribulation? Yes! The Almighty has His reasons for revealing what He reveals into the Earth and a purpose for His timing. The chart below will show, in scripture, how to calculate when 6000 years of human history will have passed since Adam's creation. The scriptural path begins with King Solomon's Reign and takes us straight back to Adam's creation without ever leaving scripture. Will the Messiah come at that point, at the end of the 6000 years, or will He come back before the 6000-year mark? Only the Father knows.


Please Note: The purpose here is not to declare the return of Messiah. It is to reveal, in scripture, when the 6000-year period from Adam's creation will have passed. 


It is, however, no secret that America is in moral decline. The churches have little power. Divorce and promiscuity run rampant. We hear talk of concentration camps, closed borders, and one world government. Fear is prevalent. Some look for the Messiah at any moment; others have lost faith. Why would יהוה reveal when Satan's rule -- 6000 years of human history -- is over? Why give us this information now?  Amos 3:7 answers... For the Master יהוה does no matter unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.

White Horse of Revelation
The End of 6000 Years of Human History...

As we saw in the section "Calculating Adam's creation" that Adam was created in 3894 BCE. When we subtract 6000 years from 3894 BCE, we arrive at 2106 CE (common era).  Another way to calculate the date is to add 3894 + 2106 = 6000.


This accounts for 1 BCE and 1 CE. There is no zero year. 2106 CE is the last year in the 6000-year period, which means 2100 - 2106 CE are the last seven years of the 6000-year period from Adam's creation and may possibly represent the seven-year period of tribulation. Only time will tell.

Red Horse of Revelation


יהוה is calling His people to separate themselves from what is unclean and return to Him with a complete heart. The prophet Daniel foretold that in the last days knowledge would fill the earth. (Dan 12:4) We are seeing the fulfillment of that prophecy. The Internet has made it possible to know things our ancestors had no way of knowing. This knowledge, while empowering, also puts us in a position of accountability before our Heavenly Father. For example: We can now trace the origins of the traditions that have been handed down to us through generations--many of which are linked to pagan worship. When we learn these things, do we separate ourselves and stop touching the unclean thing, or do we continue on as if it doesn't matter? Something to prayerfully consider.

Revealing where we are in time also reveals our hearts. For true believers, it tells us where we are in relation to kingdom work and enables us to plan for the next generation, to prepare them for what lies ahead. It frees us from false teachings, helps us to make better use of our assets, and to plan for our futures. The truth sets us free! Those who serve only for a date, or out of fear, may see "that the Master delays," and return to their worldly ways, forgetting that there is an accounting required by all, one way or the other.


Let us each be grateful for revelation, and do everything possible to hear the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

Could the Messiah come sooner? Certainly. Many believe he will come in the next few years. Will He?  It's not likely. Satan has been given 6000 years to prove his claim that mankind can rule themselves successfully without יהוה, and that he can turn יהוה's people away from serving Him. If he doesn't have the entire 6000-year period to prove his point, he will claim he has been cheated.


Messiah will have a full 1000 years to demonstrate the blessings of the Heavenly Kingdom. He doesn't need any of the 6000 years allotted for human government, which fails miserably to provide what only יהוה's loving rulership can provide.


Each person must decide for themselves what they will believe. Nevertheless, the scriptures aren't silent on this topic... if we know where to look!

Beyond 6000 Years of Human History...

The following information is not presented as fact, and is not included on the scroll, but is presented here as a logical possibility based on knowing the date of Adam's creation. It correlates with the prophetic fulfillment of the Fall Feasts, as spelled out in Leviticus chapter 23, and the historical proof that Yeshua has already fulfilled each and every one of the Spring Feasts in minute detail. It does not predict the Day or the Hour of Messiah's return... a time that only the Father in Heaven knows.


Because He has revealed IN SCRIPTURE when Adam was created, He has also made it possible to calculate when the 7th millennium will begin. You do this by subtracting 6000 years from Adam's creation, and add one year, the same way you would calculate when the second, third, fourth, or fifth millenniums would begin.


We realize that it is the mainstream belief that the Messiah's return is imminent. Most of us WANT that to be true, but if we take an honest look at yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecies, there are wars still to come, worldwide famines, great earthquakes, shifting of nations, worldwide progress in the preaching work, the rise to one world government and one world currency. Conditions have to be so dire that people will agree to accept the mark of the beast! Yes, it is all moving in that direction; we can see it in the daily news, but it may take several more years for all of this to unfold. We are still within the 6000-year period, not yet the seventh. 


As Yeshua said, what we are seeing is only the beginning of the signs of distress. The end is not yet!  So according to Bible calculations, when does the 7th millennium begin? 


No one can say when the Messiah will return, but scripture shows that the seventh millennium---6001 years from Adam's creation--- begins in 2107.  (Note the chart below.)  Is the "date" of Adam's creation and the end of the 6000-year period based on numerology?  Absolutely not!  It is based entirely on scripture, but numbers do mean something in scripture. When numbers add up to something as important as this, it is wise to take note. Even if we can determine the year, we will not know the day or the hour, which only our Father in Heaven knows.

"Last Great Day" of the Feast of Tabernacles Prophetic Fulfillment

Leviticus Chapter 23 outlines the seven festivals of יהוה; His appointed times, which He has commands His people to celebrate. These are the set-apart gatherings of His people.

Verses 33-43 describes the Feast of  Sukkot (Tabernacles), a feast unto יהוה; for seven days. After dwelling in tents for seven days, the eighth day is called, "The Last Great Day." It is the closing day of the festival. It is a day of rest and celebration. Once Satan, his demons, and his wicked system are destroyed forever, Yeshua hands the Kingdom back to His Father and submits Himself to the one who submitted all things unto Him, then יהוה Himself will rule. New Jerusalem will come down out of Heaven, and we will be His people, and He will be our Elohim!" (2Cor 15:24-28; Rev 21 and 22)

"Eye has not seen, and ear has not heard, nor has it entered into the

heart of man what Elohim has prepared for those who love Him."

(2Cor 2:9) 

You are worthy, O יהוה, to receive glory and respect and power, for You have created all, and because of Your desire they are, and

were created." (Rev 4:11)


As יהוה reveals each piece of the puzzle, a picture begins to take shape--and with the picture, understanding.  The more we learn about the Feasts of יהוה, as listed in Leviticus Chapter 23, the more we understand His purpose in having us observe them. They are prophetic shadow pictures of good things to come. Just as Yeshua fulfilled the Feast of Pesach (Passover), the Feast of Unleavened Bread, The Feast of First Fruits, and the Festival of Pentecost, so will He fulfill the Fall Feasts of יהוה, too.


In regard to the scroll, and the dates regarding Adam's creation and the end of the 6000 years, the date is based entirely on the path laid out in scripture. (See Calculating Adam's creation) The path has existed in Scripture since the 4th year of King Solomon's reign, but it wasn't clear until all the dates from Genesis to Revelation were laid side by side -- Gregorian dates next to the Hebrew Reckoning of time. I believe that our Heavenly Father chooses the timing of all things. He wants us to know where we are in the stream of time so we may prepare and make good decisions for His Kingdom.


Once before, יהוה's people anticipated entry into the Promised Land, but because they lacked faith, they did not enter. יהוה could have let them live in daily expectation, thinking that any day they were going to enter into a land flowing with milk and honey, but יהוה didn't do that. He told them that the entire generation from twenty years old and older would die in the wilderness. None of them would enter. He didn't want them to live in daily expectation and daily disappointment. He wanted them to know where they stood in the work so they could prepare those who were coming after them.


I believe that is why יהוה is now revealing where we are in the stream of time. We may not know the day or the hour of Messiah's return, but we know when the end of the 6000-year period of man's rulership will end. There is much work to do. Let each of us be found faithful in the work we have been given, and in preparing those who come after us for what lies ahead. 


In Yeshua's mighty Name...  Amen!


Note: We recognize and respect that believers have many differing beliefs and opinions about end-time events and countless other matters. As we diligently search for Truth, may iron sharpen iron.


We live in exciting times, and יהוה Himself will reveal all things at the proper time, but until then, let us prove ourselves Yeshua's disciples by the love we have amongst ourselves--even in our differences.   


See Calculating Adam's Creation to learn how יהוה has hidden and revealed the year of Adam's creation date in Scripture. Start with the beginning of Solomon's Rule and follow the scriptural path all the way back to Adam. Line-by-line instructions are detailed above and in the key at the bottom of each Tetra Scroll. 

Praise be to יהוה, Creator of Heaven and Earth, who knows the end from the beginning!​


400 Year Prophecy

400 Year Prophecy

Many have guessed, many have wondered... what is the difference between the 400 Year Prophecy mentioned in Genesis Chapter 15:13-16, and the 430 years spoken of in Exodus Chapter 12:40-42. There are positively connected!

Exactly 430 years before the Exodus, before the children of Israel were even born, יהוה spoke to Abram--not Abraham, because he didn't yet have a son. 


And He said to Aḇram, "Know for certain that your seed are to be sojourners in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them, and they shall afflict them four hundred years. But the nation whom they serve I am going to judge, and afterward let them come out with great possessions. Now, as for you, you are to go to your fathers in peace, you are to be buried at a good old age. Then, in the fourth generation, they shall return here, for the crookedness of the Amorites is not yet complete.  (Gen: 15:13-16)


At the time this prophecy was given, Abraham was 70 years old, and he had no seed, but exactly 30 years later...  Abraham's seed, Isaac, was born, and the 400-year prophecy began! We can be certain of this because as we trace the genealogy of the Patriarchs through Genesis chapters 5 and 11, we can calculate how many years Isaac was born from Adam. If we add exactly 400 years to that, we come to the year of the Exodus!


True to יהוה's Word, at the end of 430 years from the time יהוה gave Abraham the 400 Year Prophecy... יהוה had prepared Moses to bring His people out of Egypt.


And the sojourn of the children of Israel who lived in Egypt was 430 years. And it came to be at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, on that same day it came to be that all the divisions of יהוה went from the land of Egypt. It is a night to be observed by all the children of Israel throughout their generations (Ex 12:40-42)

Note that the land of Canaan did not belong to Abraham, nor to his seed until 40 years after the Exodus, through the conquest of Canaan under Joshua. From the moment Isaac was born, Abraham's seed was sojourning in a land that was not theirs.


 This vital piece of information helps to confirm that the dating of Adam's creation is correct! 

 Date Of Solomon's Reign

 Date Of Solomon's Reign

Proving The Date of King Solomon's Reign

Determining the date of Adam's creation depends upon knowing the accurate date King Solomon began to rule, and thus the 4th year of his reign when he began to build the temple.


The date King David died is 970 BCE. The websites listed below are a sample of the 1,800,000+ search results, which prove beyond any reasonable doubt that King David died and King Solomon began his rule in 970 BCE.

Note: Having firm dates, such as the dates when Assyria conquered Ten-Tribe Israel and Babylon conquered the kingdom of Judah help make it possible to determine dates prior to those events. There are many ways of determining the dates of King David's and King Solomon's reigns as well, including the rulership charts of surrounding nations.
