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. It just never occurred to us that we could. The truth is, scripture has always said we would 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 destroy Satan, and all his army, is 3 1/2 years away. They will KNOW the year of Messiah's return and the beginning of the 7th Millennium!
Can we 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.
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.
יהוה is calling His people to separate themselves from what is unclean, and return to Him with a complete heart. The prophet DanielI 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 ignore it, and continue on as if it doesn't matter? Something to prayfully consider.
2cor 6:14-18 says "What partnership is there for righteous and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness? And what agreement has Messiah with Beliyal'al? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever? And what union has the Dwelling Place of Elohim have with idols? For you are a Dwelling Place of the living Elohim, as Elohim said, "I shall dwell in them, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be my people." Therefore, "Come out from among them and be separate," says יהוה, "and do not touch what is unclean, and I shall receive you. And I shall be a Father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me," says יהוה the Almighty.
Revealing where we are in time also reveals our hearts. For true believers, it tells us where we are in the work, and enables us to plan for the next generation, to prepare them for what lies ahead. It frees us from false teachings, and 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 be grateful for revelation, and do everything possible to hear the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
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 BC 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.
Could the Messiah come sooner? Certainly. Many believe he will come in the next few years. Will He? It is not likely. Why? 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 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 to take any of the 6000 years allotted for human government, which fails miserably to provide what only יהוה's loving rulership can provide. Only time will prove the truth. Each person must decide for themselves what they will believe. Nevertheless, the scriptures are not silent on this topic... if we know where to look!
Take note of the amazing numerology associated with the years יהוה has revealed as the "date" of Adam's creation, (see above).
Is 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. One can not read the book Daniel and fail to see that our Heavenly Father is very aware of numbers with regard to the timing of events. It is wise to take note of them.
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.
As written in scripture, the day will come when those living on the Earth will SEE the Antichrist enter the Temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to be God. This is exactly three and a half years into the seven-year tribulation. The people living at that time will then KNOW there are three and a half years of tribulation left. That means they will also KNOW the year when Yeshua is coming. This means... the Father has not forbidden humans to know the Year of His sons return... only the day and hour.
Because He has revealed IN SCRIPTURE when Adam was created, He has also made it possible to calculate when the 7th millennium will begin. We don't have to wait until the mid-point of the tribulation to find out. 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 will return in 2015, 2017, 2018, 2023, or sometime in the very near future. 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, developments that will give 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 mellennium begin?
No one knows the day or hour our Messiah will return, but scripture does show that the seventh millennium (6000 years from Adam's creation) begins in 2107. (Note the chart below.) Is the "date " of Adam's creation, the end of the 6000-year period, the beginning of the seventh millennium, based on numerology? Absolutely not! It is based entirely on scripture, but numbers do mean something in scripture. You can't read the book of Daniel and not see that. When numbers clearly add up to something as obvious as this, it is wise to take note.
"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 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 is destroyed forever, and Yeshua has defeated the last enemy, death, and has handed 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."
You are worthy, O יהוה, to receive esteem 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 by the path laid out in scripture. (See Calculating Adam's creation) The path has always existed, but it was never 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 that we may prepare and make good decisions for His Kingdom.
Once before, יהוה's people anticipated their 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 that 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...
See Calculating Adam's Creation to learn how יהוה has hidden, and revealed, the year of Adam's creation in scripture. Start with the beginning of Solomon's Rule, and follow the scriptural path all the way back to Adam. Line-by-line details are available on the latest version of the Tetra Scroll, both in Gregorian and Hebrew Reckoning of Time.
The treasures revealed in the scroll are numerous, and יהוה continues to reveal them. Praise be to יהוה, Creator of Heaven and Earth, who knows the end from the beginning!
