It has been said that one can study the book of Genesis alone for a lifetime and still not learn everything the Lord reveals in the deeply prophetic book. The Lord opens His Word with Genesis and ends with Revelations; a timeline if you will of:
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Isa 46:10. The Lord is the creator of time and He created man in His image setting a course for him to be used and demonstrate the testimony and account of His glory, honor, and divine nature against that great accuser, Satan, for a determined time when he shall be defeated and shall no more have the power to accuse.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Rev 12:10
Ten is the number of testimony, account, and Law as in the 10 commandments. In Genesis 5, God gives us the 10 generations of Adam beginning with Adam and ending with Noah.
Looking at the chart, the numbers reveal many things. If we add the number of years in column C we get 7019 years. Seven is Gods number for spiritual things and for setting time. Jesus came 77 generations after Adam and 70 after Enoch. Daniel’s prophecy of 70 x 7 or 490 years to finish the transgression and make an end of sin, and God rested on the 7th day of creation, a set time. We are not given the number of days after the year the men lived. For example, Adam could have lived 930 years and 10 days, Enos 905 years and 40 days and so on and so on. It seems likely those days would add up to an additional 2 years for a total of 7021 years, a multiple of 7. Is it possible that God in His Fatherhood, has laid out an exact timeline for the number of years His sons shall live on earth within the generations of Adam? We will come back to examine 7019 and 7021 a little later.
Notice that Enoch is a figure of the church and lived 300 years after the birth of his son Methuselah. His name means “dedicated – teaching” and Enoch was given the earliest recorded prophecy which referred to the 2nd coming of Christ in Jde 1:14. The number 300 means “God appears” for Enoch was raptured before the great flood:
By faith Enoch as translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God Heb 11:5.
The Ark of Noah was also 300 cubits long. Noah and his family rode with God upon the Ark during the flood. The Ark of Covenant was placed in the tabernacle so that God could dwell among men during the Old Testament times. And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them Exo 25:8.
Enoch’s son named Methuselah whose name means “death – to bring or to send”, “his death shall bring”, was the longest living man in history at 969 years. Enoch began to walk with God after Methuselah was born Gen 5:22 and seems to have been told by God that the flood would not come until Methuselah’s death and signifies God’s mercy and long suffering in the oldest living man. Methuselah had Lamech at 187. Lamech had Noah at 182 and the flood came in Noah’s 600th year. 187 + 182 + 600 = 969 years.
Noah was a figure of the Tribulation saints; those who will survive to the end of the 7 year Tribulation. Noah lived 450 years after giving birth to his three sons of Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The number 450 means “hope of life after death” for just as Noah and his family had the hope of eternal life after the death of the entire world, the Tribulation Saints will have hope of eternal life after the death and destruction of the world. Noah’s name means “rest or comfort” Gen 5:29 while his father’s name Lamech means “the despairing”. Lamech lived a total of 777 years.
The most accepted date for the creation of the world is 4004 BC. The number 4 detonates “material things, wandering the world”. On the 4th day God made the sun, the moon, and the stars, the material universe. The Garden of Eden had a river which parted into the headwaters of four other rivers. These rivers were the Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and the Euphrates and their respective names mean to “increase, bursting forth, rapid, and fruitfulness” in that order. To see how the date 4004 BC was derived, you can read the article here: https://answersingenesis.org/bible-timeline/the-world-born-in-4004-bc/.
If we divide the 300 years of Enoch’s fatherhood with Noah’s 450 we get the number of the man of sin. 300/450 = .66666.
Looking closer at the 7019 and 7021 years from the generations of Adam, we notice that 19, 10 + 9 is the number for “Trusting faith and God’s perfect order in regard to His finality of judgment”. Israel was ruled by a total of nineteen kings before God allowed them to be conquered by the Assyrians. The 19th book of the Bible is Psalms, the song book of the people of FAITH and Psa 19:5 says “Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.” A bridegroom comes out of his chamber to take his bride!
Now we turn to 21, – “lawlessness, folly” and symbolizes the great wickedness of rebellion and sin. After the children of Israel left Egyptian bondage they had 21 major rebellious events as they traveled and wandered the wilderness. 3 x 7, 3 = God’s image and 7 = a set time to become the “end of God’s image”. In 2 Timothy 3, the apostle Paul writes of 21 sins which show the exceeding wickedness of self and sin.
Removing the 1000 year millennial reign from 7019 gives us 6019 and 6021 years. Using the date of creation at 4004 BC:
6019 – 4004 = 2016
6021 – 4004 = 2018
The events of 2015/5775
Coming in September, they include the Shemitah and exactly 14 days later, the final Blood Moon. The number 14 refers to “Deliverance, Righteousness, and Salvation”. Psalm (14) is a prayer for SALVATION – “Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.” Psa 14:7. There were 14 generations from Babylon to Christ.
“So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.” Mat 1:17. Genesis Chapter 14 – Abram defeats Kerdorlaomer. Melchizedeck says “blessed be God who DELIVERED 14 your enemies into your hand”. This battle began in the 14 year of Kerdorlomar’s subjection. “And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all” Gen 14:20.
This will be the 14th anniversary of 9/11. On the Jewish calendar, the year is 5775. The number 75 refers to missionary as Abraham was 75 years old when he left Haran, sojourned in a foreign nation, and set up an alter to the Lord. “So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.”Gen 12:4. So the 7 in 5775 before 75 designates a set time for the end of missionaries! God will never leave man fully abandoned. The Shemitah also falls on a partial solar eclipse. Is this a warning that God is about to remove part of the light of this world (church)?!
The events of 2017/5777
One of the main events of 2017 is the depiction of Revelation 12 within the stars. Revelation 12 is an amazing passage of past, present, and future events concerning Israel and Jesus. The great sign in the heavens is set for September 23, 2017 two days after Rosh Hashanah. Is it a warning that the Tribulation is about to begin?
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: Rev 12:1
Forty days later on October the 31st, 2017 (Halloween is the highest satanic holy day of the year) or the 11th of Cheshvan 5777, the 8th month on the Jewish calendar and according to Jewish tradition Methuselah died on this day! Eight is the number for new beginnings and 11 for fear. Will it be a new beginning for the most fear the world has ever known??
Remember Noah’s father Lamech lived 777 years and his name means “the despairing”. The number 77 is equal to “false prophet”! 7 (set time) x 11 (fear) = 77. The Jews will once more remember the God of their fathers after they realize the antichrist is not the Messiah.
Psalm 77 plays this out:
I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me. 2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted. 3 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah. 4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. 6 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search. 7 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more? 8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore? 9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah. 10 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High. 11 I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. 12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. 13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God? 14 Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people. 15 Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. Zec 12:10
The first Zionist Congress was convened by Theodor Herzl as a symbolic parliament for the small minority of Jewry in agreement with the implementation of Zionist goals. This took place in August 29th, 1897. Fast forward 120 years and arrive at 2017 or 5777 on the Jewish calendar. 120 is made up of three forties (3×40=120). Applied to time therefore it signifies a divinely appointed period of probation.
And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Gen 6:3.
6:3? That is man with God!
One hundred twenty years after God spoke those words…..His judgment was brought against the world with the Great Flood of Noah.
Adding the remaining 1007 years to the 6021 years brings us to 7028 years total; a multiple of 7! The number 28 is 4 x 7. Remember the number 4 designates material things and wandering the world. The fourth book of the BIBLE, Numbers, is the story of God’s people WANDERING in the desert. 7028 years gives us the end of the millennial reign, a set time for man to stop wandering the world for since Adam was cast out of the Garden, Man has sought for a way back to God!!
There is less than 5 months left in 2015. Will we see the Rapture; the Blessed Hope!
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Heb 10:25
