Shalom Aleichem and welcome to my bi-monthly blog!
As we conclude our opening session on understanding the times and before moving on to consider each Day of Creation in detail, let us first have an overview or snapshot of how each of the 7 Days of Creation foreshadowed each of the 7 millennia of world history from Creation until now as God unfolds His eternal will both in the world and in His Word:
DAY 1 on the separation of light and darkness foreshadowed the Fall and is the key event that characterises the First Millennium of world history.
DAY 2 on what the Bible described as a vault or space separating water from water foreshadowed the Flood and Noah’s Ark that became that vault separating the rain from the floodwaters. This event characterises the Second Millennium.
DAY 3 on the gathering of waters and appearing of dry ground foreshadowed the emerging of the dry ground of salvation with the call of the Patriarchs and the Exodus. These events characterise the Third Millennium.
DAY 4 on the greater and lesser lights foreshadowed how God appointed Israel to act as His lesser light directing mankind to Jesus Christ, the Greater/True Light of salvation. The time from Israel up till Jesus characterises the Fourth Millennium.
DAY 5 on the water and air teeming with life foreshadowed the new life available to all mankind through the giving of the Holy Spirit and birth of the Church. This move characterises the Fifth Millennium.
DAY 6 on the creation of Adam and the subsequent rule of Man foreshadows the coming rule of the Antichrist, the counterfeit “Son of Man.” The rule of the Antichrist is characteristic of the Sixth Millennium that we are currently living in and defines the spirit of our age.
DAY 7 on the Sabbath Rest foreshadows the second coming of Christ and the establishment of His Millennial Kingdom and rule on earth. Christ’s coming will mark the start of the Seventh (and last) Millennium of world history as we know it.
May God grant us wisdom and open our eyes to see and understand each day that has passed and especially the day that we are currently living in.
