THE SEVENTH DAY?


“THE SEVENTH DAY?”

Note: This is more of a nuts and bolts paper, I basically break down the amount of years from Adam to Today, I take a little license here and there toward the end, because I don’t have all month to research this, just a passing saturday morning thought compelled me to write this. But it is cool none the less. I hope you enjoy it. Peace Jacob

Hebrews 4:4
For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

The number seven has long been known to be a number of completion. Why the number seven you say? Well seven is important in many societies, our daily life, physiology, chemistry, the list goes on and on. Let me just show you, how pervasive the number seven is with this list below.

1) Seven Days to every week
2) Seven Continents
3) Seven Chakras
4) Seven phases of the moon
5) Seven colors in a rainbow
6) Seven divisions of the brain
7) Seven functions of the nervous system
8) Seven major metals
9) Seven major organs
10) Seven notes in a music scale
11) Seven places you physically exist in the world, north, south, east, west, up, down, where you are now.
12) Seven steps “scientific method”:1) problem, 2) research, 3) hypothesis, 4) experiment, 5) data, 6) results, 7) conclusion

I’d like to end with the “scientific method” because it is also our spiritual quest method. 1) the problem arises “who am I?” 2) We begin to seek out answers 3) We begin to theorise ideas of what God is and is not 4) We put these beliefs to practice, we try to live by them 5) Our experiences and the experiences and beliefs of others are calculated into equation 6) We look over all we have learned and experienced 7) We conclude that our beliefs are true.

But what many forget about the scientific method, is that often, conclusions have to change when new data is added into the equation. Then we must begin the spiritual quest method all over again. This is why we must never believe we know it all! We should always be testing, seeking, knocking, and finding more. For we know in part, until that which is perfect is come (we know in part, into the full truth is revealed to us).

My point is, it should be easy to see, why seven is such a significant number. And in almost every case, the number SEVEN marks the conclusion of a matter. I’m not just talking about God finishing creation on the sixth day and resting on the seventh… I’m talk about that seventh inning stretch, because that is what we are entering into baby! The SEVENTH DAY – The day of God’s rest. Right now we are being completed. This is why so many are having such trouble, this is why the world seems to be going all cooky! As a woman who travails in birth, so are we, and that new creation is going to be born.

Now this simple essay, is not going to blow anyone away who is looking for allegory and symbolism. But this is something the “literalists” of the world will LOVE! However, my closing thought I don’t believe they will find so comforting.

Years ago, I did an experiment. A thought came to mind.

2 Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

A DAY is a Thousand years? – What did this mean? So the idea hits me “Years and years ago” – WHAT IF I CAN CALCULATE USING THE BIBLE that from ADAM to JESUS is five thousand years, and another two thousand years to today… Meaning, that from ADAM to TODAY, would bring us to that SEVENTH DAY!

So that is what I am going to do for you all. The way I figured out how to do this, was to use the age of each individual when they gave birth to another, for example ADAM was 130 when he gave birth to SETH. Meaning “Adam’s Generation” was only around 130 years when Seth was born, and so on and so on… So below is the fascinating calculations. It will make you scratch your head and go HHHHHHMMMNNN! ๐Ÿ™‚

1) ADAM to SETH -Genesis 5:3 = 130 Years
2) SETH to ENOS – Genesis 5:6 = 105 years
3) ENOS to CAINAN – Gen 5:9 = 90 years
4) CAINAN to MAHALALEEL – Gen 5:12 = 70 years
5) MAHALALEEL to JARED – Gen 5:15 = 65 years
6) JARED to ENOCH – Gen 5:18 = 162 years
7) ENOCH to METHUSELAH – Gen 5:21 = 65 years
8) METHUSELAH to LAMECH – Gen 5:25 = 187 years
9) LAMECH to NOAH – Gen 5:28 = 82 years

Now this is where it gets tricky. Because it says that Noah had his sons are five hundred years old, but the trick is finding SHEM, and when he had his son, how old he was, and an important detail included in Gen. about this.

10These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:

We see here that SHEM was 100 years old when he had Arphaxad, TWO YEARS after the flood. The good news is, we are given the exact amount of years from noah to the Flood. Let’s continue. It should be noted by the way that 4And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. – that’s right 7th month, 7th day the ARC (that which contains LIFE/SPIRIT OF GOD) RESTS! On mount ARarat of all places, ARARAT means appropriately “the cursed reversed” – look it up ๐Ÿ™‚ – But back to our study.

10) NOAH to END OF FLOOD – Gen 8: 13 = 601 years
11) SHEM was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad TWO YEARS after FLOOD: = 2 years
12) ARPHAXAD to SALAH – gen 11:12 = 35 years
13) SALAH to EBER – Gen 11:14 = 30 years
14) EBER to PELEG – Gen 11:16 = 34 years
15) PELEG to REU – Gen 11:18 = 30 years
16) REU to SERUG – Gen 11:20 = 32 years
17) SERUG to NAHOR – Gen 11:22 = 30 years
18) NAHOR to TERAH – Gen 11:24 = 29 years
19) TERAH to ABRAM – Gen 11:26 = 70 years (This may be off by a couple of years)
20) ABRAHAM to ISAAC – Gen 21:5 =100 years
21) ISAAC to JACOB – Gen 25:26 = 60 years
22) JACOB to JOSEPH – = 91 years

How I got this was is a litte tricky, so I called upon the help of “specialityinterests.net” for this next explanation: We know that Jacob died at age 147 (Gen. 47:28)[5], further do we know that Joseph was 30 years old when Pharaoh elevated him to second in power in Egypt (Gen. 41:46). Right at that time when Joseph was 30 years of age the 7 years of plenty began (Gen. 41:47) and Joseph harvested and stored the grain. This was followed by the 7 years of drought during which Jacob and his family moved to Egypt when he was 130 years old (Gen. 47:9). Calculation: (147 (Gen. 47:9) – 17 (Gen. 47:28)= 130). The year Jacob moved to Egypt was after the 2nd year in the drought (Gen. 45:6) before Jacob moved his whole family to Goshen. That would make the age of Joseph 39 when he met his father again and 56 years of age (39 + 17 = 56) when his father Jacob died. Joseph died when he was 110 years old (Gen. 50:22). Therefore Jacob was, 147 – 17 – 39 = 91 years of age when Joseph was born

FROM ADAM to the BIRTH of JOSEPH = 2,100 years

Now what is interesting about this, is one day many years ago I was thinking on something Joseph said right after the famine started.

Genesis 45:6
For these TWO YEARS hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest

I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be cool, if that TWO YEARS, was symbolic of two thousand years since ADAM (the beginning of ADAM’S GENERATION) and that for another FIVE YEARS – meant another Five Thousand which would bring us up to TODAY. Meaning the FAMINE for SEVEN YEARS, has been going on since the very beginning of this GENERATION OF ADAM (Humanity) – If you have “ears to hear” it, Jesus said this GENERATION will not pass away until all is accomplished.

Matthew 24:34
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Wouldn’t it be something if there really was NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.

So it’s been two thousand years from ADAM to JOSEPH… well what about up to Jesus? And then us?

23) JOSEPH to his death – Gen 50:26 = 110 years

(I have not narrowed down the exact time between Joseph’s death, and Israel’s captivity, but we can assume that it didn’t happen overnight. Time had to have passed)

24) Israel captive until Moses sets them free: Exudos 12:41 = 430 years
25) Israel in wilderness – Exudos 16:35 = 40 years

An important thing to note, was they WANDERED until all the “men of war” were killed off. This is symbolic of how our wilderness journey, we will continue to wander in the wilderness of our lives until ever last thing we learned in egypt is gone, and peace resides in our heart.

Joshua 5:6
For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

And remember, just because we enter the promise land, doesn’t mean we posses it. We can enter into a great understanding, but until it because experience and we “OWN IT” and nothing can separate us from it, then we don’t posses it. So once again, time will pass between when Israel enters the promise land, and they actually possess it and defeat all their enemies.

I am going to end this essay with the idea that, if ISRAEL possessed the Promise land, 3000 YEARS after ADAM comes on the scene… That would be the 3rd day, wouldn’t it?

But it would be another 2000 years until Jesus is BORN, which man believe is around 9/11 3 BC – there is debate over the actual birth of Jesus, but many state it may very well be 3 BC on September 11. So for conspiracy theorists sake, let’s go with the commonly held 3BC 9/11 belief.

Here is the reason. If it is FIVE THOUSAND YEARS to the birth of Jesus at 3BC. That would be the 5th day. COOL RIGHT?

The number 5 has long been represented as the NUMBER of GRACE.

And what does Jesus bring again?

John 1:17
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

But on the fifth day is when God made ANIMALS. Scripture tells us that Men are brute beasts… The number 5 in Hebrew means “strength, to take hold, contraction of five fingers” – Five senses, Five fingers and toes on each hand and foot. FIVE is a significant number.

So we can easily see that from ADAM to JESUS is about 5000 YEARS. But it does get cooler, if the 6BC 9/11 date is right on target.

Because that would mean, 2000 years later on 9/11/03 we would enter the SEVENTH DAY!

Two years after 9/11 when TWINS were thrown to the ground and three thousand people were swallowed by the earth, right near the Golden Bull of Wall street… – Sound familiar?

Now the question is how do we know, that from Joseph to Jesus to Us, is the right amount of time. Now, early this morning, I wasn’t planning on doing an exhaustive study on this. And so I brought you up to where I brought you… But I knew there was a missing piece to this puzzle. I wanted to give all of you hard data to work with, so it wasn’t guestimation, but from the scriptures themselves. But I couldn’t remember, the key to doing that. So I basically, let God with that thought.

Then around noon, after I already finished this article I remember a request that Marshall Kinney sent me, saying “Call me.” He had some revelation to share I was sure. So I called him, and low and behold, just what was he and a friend studying GENERATIONS… And he mentions the very scripture that I needed…. WITHOUT ME EVER TELLING HIM I NEEDED IT! Then I explained how cool that was, about the paper I had written and how he just mentioned the key to solving the problem essay (In my opinion) of course… So HERE IT IS!

Matthew 1:17
Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah.

You see with this verse, I can take us from Abraham to Christ accurately.

From ADAM to ABRAHAM = 1,849 YEARS

This verse from Matthew, tells us then all we need to do is figure out what 42 generations are…

Now to find the GENERATION, how many years. We do a simple search and find…

Psalm 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

That means between 70 and 80 (depending) is how long a generation is. As a score is 20 people. So let’s split it right down the middle and call it 75.

So a generation is 75 years, 42 generations from Abraham to Christ. From Adam to Abraham is 1849… Wouldn’t it be cool, if 75 times 42 gave us a number that brought us up to 5000 years?

Well 75 years times 42 generations = 3150 years.

You add 1849 plus 3150 and you get… wait for it ๐Ÿ™‚


4999 YEARS
before CHRIST IS BORN.

There it is in black and white! The Bible accurately describes the years from ADAM to CHRIST as 5000 years, and you can’t argue differently…

Now here we are TWO THOUSAND YEARS later… And that must then mean, it has been 7000 years since ADAM, and WE (THIS GENERATION) have entered into that 7TH DAY. If a day is a thousand years literally, which you all know I’m not a huge fan of LOL… Just kidding.

Now isn’t that amazing, that I knew there had to be an answer. I didn’t have the answer when I first wrote the paper, BUT KNEW THERE WAS AN EASY WAY SOMEWHERE… Then a simply phone call later, and WHAMO PAPER IS NOW COMPLETE!

POINT MADE ETC!!!!!!

But I digress…

What does any of this have to do with anything, really? Well it could very well be the reason so many people are starting to wake up to the Truth. It could be the reason people like Rob Bell are writing books about how a God of love couldn’t subject us to infinite torture… “It’s about time Rob, welcome to the party, but there is still so much more to go.”

Could it be, that Satan/That Serpent/CARNAL MIND of ours may (as scripture states) be bound right now, so we can WAKE UP and ENTER INTO THIS REST.

Revelation 20
1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Eh who knows, who cares really, all that really matter is what God is doing in our life, and in our thinking/hearts. Maybe if we are in that SEVENTH day, we should do as God did, and look at all that has been created in our lives, and say, HEY IT’S PRETTY GOOD! Understand God is in control and buckle up and enjoy the ride.

In any event, there you have a little history lesson, mixed in with a little conspiracy and hopefully a revelation or two. So are we in the SEVENTH DAY? If a day is like a Thousand years, from Adam to Today is around that time don’t you think?

So there you have it, fun with dates, times, and numbers. Jacob

    If we will see it ( even if we don’t ), Jesus is the ‘seventh day’s!:)

  2. dawn March 26, 2011 / 12:56 PM

    it makes since to me Jacob. Maybe this explains Revelation were the people have been crying out How long oh Lord. How Long? It is till we all come into the rest? I believe we are in the rest.
    Last night I was talking to my Daddy, I had not been in as much fellowship with Him as I would like to be.
    as I was be bomb-barded with guilt, number one for not feeling like I was entering in and #2 for not communicating with him enough.
    I sat down in my rocker late last night to talk with Him, and again I was telling Him I was sorry for not keeping Him on my mind as I thought I ought.
    This is was He spoke to my spirit. #1 you have been speaking to me at various times thought out the whole day everyday. just because you have not set aside delegated time to spend with me does not mean you have not spent time with me. #2. He showed me that I am in a rest, and that He is not the one making me feel quilty, because I have not set aside time to get alone with him. He reminded me of families who interact with their dad. how do they talk to their dad? Do they constantly praise him and glorify him or do they simply just talk to him?
    Ahh, I said, I have been simply just talking to you though out the whole day about this and that, but I have not just simply sat down quieted my spirit with alone time with you and just worshiped you.
    Do I require that, He said? or is that what you have been taught?
    You must realize that I am, and that because I am, you are!!!
    therefore you are in me and you are in rest. quilt does not come from me, service of this or that or any thing that causes you to step out of rest is not of me. It is not time to mourn, it is time to heal, time to rest. then I understand that He meant, healing of the land physically and spiritually. we in this day, I believe will be speaking to the land for healing, not falling on our faces in mourning over the calamities. could it be that the shaking that is going on is the shaking out of those who are not in the ark that has come to rest on Ararat, just a thought.It seems that I can’t even pray about the things that are going on. all I can do is rest in Him talking to Him and be available how ever He chooses when He chooses to use my voice or this body in the land. Things will grow, the sun will shine, and all the people that go will not be gone. I believe all will be saved, and I rest in that!!!!Amen

  3. dawn March 26, 2011 / 1:26 PM

    as I got up to get ready to go to work, another thought came to me, that I believe the Lord wants to add to what I said up top, the Lord is shaking the world and peoples of this world and He will shake and continue to shake till he has shook all those in the world out of the world for they won’t come out any other way, I felt He was saying this is His Great Love, and those who are yet not compeletly in His rest will rock along in the arc along with the shaking of this world and their world until they too realize there is nothing they can do of their own self, and finally come to that rest on their Mt. Ararat and the curse be reversed.
    I love you my Daddy. May we all be at peace, may we all rest, may we all walk in Love even great love towards all people bringing peace and light where ever we go.

      That’s a powerful experience Dawn! Love the way you put that! Until we all rest on Mt Ararat! ๐Ÿ™‚ Peace

  4. Sherry Hughes March 26, 2011 / 2:38 PM

    Wow Jacob! A lot of thought, math, study, & work went into all this. I appreciate you doing this for us. 7th day or not, I just REST in Him! I trust what He’s spoken to my heart is true, but that was your whole pont, right? ; ) Love u & keep ’em coming!

    • jacobisrael71 March 27, 2011 / 8:16 AM

      Sherry,

      To be honest I don’t know why I wrote it, most times I just get this urge to write about something, I sit down and then hours later an essay forms. Of course the whole point is to REST indeed! I guess I just wanted to show how awesome it was that if you add everything up it brings us to 7000 years after Adam. (Which I believe is MANKIND as a whole, not a single man) but really that is immaterial, as the story is what is important, and understanding the spirit of it. Peace

  5. T.J. March 28, 2011 / 10:44 AM

    Interesting article, but if what you have written here is true, then that means we are already past the 7th day and have entered into the 8th day. You said there was approximately 5000 years from Adam to Christ so that would have put Jesus being born on the beginning of the sixth day.

    years 0-1000 = 1st day
    years 1000-2000 = 2nd day
    years 2000-3000 = 3rd day
    years 3000-4000 = 4th day
    years 4000-5000= 5th day
    years 5000-6000 = 6th day
    years 6000-7000 = 7th day

    It is a good theory but it doesn’t hold water (truth). For one, it would mean that the bible must be LITERALLY true from front to back and how does that explain the earth being millions of years old? How does it explain the archeological evidence of cultures much older than the bible when taken literally? Why wasn’t the 7th day a 1000 years of peace with a literal Jesus coming back from Heaven to reign with his saints on this earth? Why hasn’t every knee bowed and every tongue confessed that Jesus is lord to the glory of God? I am not attacking you or trying to be sarcastic, I just think we should be very careful when taking the bible literally. The letter kills, but the spirit gives life. We need to seek the spirit of the letter, not the letter itself. The bible is not about the history of mankind as a whole. There is absolutely zero archeological evidence to support any of the stories in the bible as being literally true. It is a spiritual book that pertains to each and every one of us individually. It is OUR STORY. It tells of where we came from, how we got here, and where we are going. It is all about us, not our so called history on this planet earth, but us, in the here and now. If one day in scripture is a literal 1000 days of earth time, then that means that God created the earth and all that is in it and on it in 6000 literal years. There are trees on this planet much older than that alone. Come on dude, we are the earth, we are the heavens, we are the beasts of the field, we are everything that God created. It is all about us. I mean if the bible is literally true, then I guess that means we all need to be looking towards literal Israel for our salvation, right? No, taking the bible literally makes people look outside of themselves for God and salvation all the while, God and our salvation is within us. Everything mentioned in the bible is to be found WITHIN US, NOT OUTSIDE OF US. If you want to know where we are in history in a physical sense, then you need to look towards the cultures that knew of the wisdom the stars in the sky contain to find that out, not the bible. Again, the bible is about us, not our history, but where we are spiritually. We are rapidly approaching the end of an individual age, Pisces. At the same time, we are rapidly approaching the end of a 26,000 year time cycle known as the great year. The age we are entering into is Aquarius. Jesus alluded to this age when his deciples asked him where to prepare for the PASSOVER supper. God also alluded to this age when He said He would POUR out His spirit upon all flesh. This is the real reason people are beginning to wake up. God is now beginning to pour out His spirit (truth) upon all flesh. Many preachers say that Adam was made in God’s image and likeness, but this is not true, Adam was formed from the DUST OF THE GROUND. I thought about this and it hit me why Adam, who is current mankind, was formed from the dust of the ground. What is dust devoid of? Water! And what does water symbolize in scripture, God’s spirit/truth! The current state of mankind is one devoid of God’s truth! But that is all about to CHANGE. We are entering an age where God’s spirit/truth will be poured out on all of mankind and the effects of this can already be felt now because we have been in a transition period between the age of pisces and aquarius for some time now. The symbol for Aquarius is a man carrying a pitcher of water, or better yet, pouring the water out of that pitcher. When Jesus told his desciples to follow the man carrying a picher of water into his house and to the upper room, he was alluding to a great truth. When we see the man carrying the pitcher of water, Aquarius, we will follow him into his house(mind) and go to the upper room(place of higher consciousness) for the PASSOVER. And what are we passing over from? From DEATH TO LIFE! But along with this passover comes the death of everything we have always believed and thought ourselves to be in this world and everything that goes along with it. There is no other way. It is like the saying “The night is always darkest before the dawn”. We are in the darkest part of night right now with a new day getting ready to dawn. What we need to stop doing is holding onto our bibles as literal truths and quit making idols out of them and go within our arks already because the clouds are gathering and the storm is fast approaching all of us. Go within and seek God and His truth.
