Ancient Paths - God's 7000 Yr Plan for Mankind

Understanding the 7000 year Plan of GOD

Understanding the 7000 year Plan of GOD

Dispensationally….based on II Peter 3:8 (1 day = 1000yrs), ….there were 4000 yrs before Jesus and 2000 yrs after approx….6 days for man to rule and the 7th day (rest) God will rule and reign. We know this as the "Millennium" is the time when Yeshua (Jesus) will set up His throne in Jerusalem...Rev 20:1-7, Isaiah 65:25 and Isaiah 9:6-7, Zechariah 14:16

READ EZEKIEL 46:1 - Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.

In other words, mankind has 6 days or 6000 yrs on this earth to work.  The 6000 yrs began the day Adam was formed. Tracing the genealogies & timeframes in Genesis, there were 4000 yrs before Yeshua came the first time...and now in 2013, there have been approx. 2000 yrs or 2 days since he came the first time. We are right at the end of the 6000 yr period...and we are about to enter the 7th day (Millinneum and what Sabbath day points to) which begins with the door of heaven being opened and the Lord's coming the second time!

According to Exodus 12, God instructed His people to set aside a lamb 4 days before it was sacrificed as the Passover lamb...from the 10th to the 14th of the first month. This of course is a type and shadow that pointed to Yeshua the Lamb of God who was to come and die for the salvation of mankind. Again, note that dispensationally the 4 days = 4000 yrs in God's we see that from creation to when Yeshua died on the cross there were 4000 yrs...and the Bible declares in Revelation 13:8 that He was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world!  What a picture the scripture paints for us!

Look at Hosea scripture….after 2 days (Jews return)

HOSEA 6:1-2 - 1  Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

 2  After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

 3   Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Again, this scripture speaks of the approx. 2000 yrs after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD with the Jews being torn from their homeland...that Israel would be brought back into their is being fulfilled before our eyes!  It also speaks of the Lord's coming in His seasons like the rain to the earth.

Below is an amazing passage of scripture in Isaiah that is probably one of the if not the greatest proof for pre-tribulation rapture in the Bible.  What's also amazing is that this same pattern can be seen in the book of Revelation...I've tried to show how they parallel each other below.

ISAIAH 26:19-21 - 19 Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body[b] they shall arise…….Resurrection of righteous dead…parallels
Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust;                   I Thess. 4:16
For your dew is like the dew of herbs,
And the earth shall cast out the dead.

Take Refuge from the Coming Judgment

20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,…..........Parallels Psalm 26:5; Revelations 4
And shut your doors behind you;
Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment.........Parallels Revelations 6-18 (the indignation
Until the indignation is past.                       or Tribulation period, time of Jacob's Trouble)!
21 For behold, the Lord comes out of His place…………. Parallels Rev 19                   
To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;....
The earth will also disclose her blood,                               
And will no more cover her slain.

Q – SO WHAT THEN IS THE 8TH DAY? – The 8th day represents eternity…that’s why the Hebrews circumcised all their male children on the 8th day…8 represents wholeness, completeness!  Circumcision means to cut around or in a circle. It was the sign of the blood covenant between YHWH and His people Israel.  Also, a circle has no beginning or end…the symbol of eternity…he’s made eternal covenant with His people!


See Teaching on YHWH's Seasons/Festivals for additional information regarding the 7000 year plan...the Festivals are the key to understanding the Last Days!

Elul is the 6th month on the Jewish calendar and Tishri or Tishrei is the 7th month...there is a lot of symbolism in these timeframes that is discussed in detail in the teaching on YHWH's festivals as well.

The clock starts on 3970 the year Adam sinned in the garden. That give us 6 thousand years to the year 2030. Some say 2028. Really close.

Bruce Laplante 05.05.2021 12:52

Thank u Lewis for your comment! Can u please explain how or where u got the date 3970? Thanks again !

Glen 26.09.2020 04:28

James Ussher was wrong. Not 4,004 to birth of Messiah BUT 4,000/1 to Jesus` all import death & resurrection for us who trust in Him C.f. 80 Jubilees + 40 = 120.

Glen 26.09.2020 03:55

There are indeed 2,000 Y`s from the crucifixion to 2nd advent. How is it you are Pre-trib 7 years before-1,993 between. Is this date setting & imminence in 1 ?

Bruce Laplante 26.09.2020 22:41

Great comments Glen!...thanks for the additional insight!

Glen 26.09.2020 22:17

I personally will be looking for the 7 Y Trib to start Tishri 10 in 2,026 plus or minus 1-2 years at most. Tishri 10 + 3.5 Y`s = Nisan 10 = Antichrists entry.

Glen 26.09.2020 22:11

If however it turns out the crucifixion was earlier or latter than AD. 33 it is still + 1,993 to start of Trib + 7 to = 2,000 Y`s to 2nd advent + 1,000 Y reign.

Glen 26.09.2020 22:06

And IF, I say again IF Jesus is coming back AD. 2033 ? THEN the 7 Year Tribulation will BEGIN AD. 2,026. 33 + 2,000 Y`s ( 2 "DAYS") = 2,033 Minus 7 = AD 2,026.

Glen 26.09.2020 21:54

This means IF, & I say again IF Jesus/Yeshua died in AD. 33? His return back to the Mt of Olives is expected in 2,033? THEN Satan bound for Literal 1,000 years.

Glen 26.09.2020 21:49

It is 1993 Y`s from Year of Crucifixion until 7 Y Trib starts. The 7 Y Trib has not yet started but when it does it will end 2,000 Y`s from the crucifixion year

Glen 26.09.2020 21:46

Of course Satan is not yet bound in abyss, with great chains & sealed lid = never get out for 1,000 Y`s = at beginning of the soon Day of the Lord = 2nd Advent.

Bruce Laplante 26.09.2020 17:01

Also scripture says satan will be bound 1000 yrs not 1993 yrs...which seems to infer that the trib occurrs b4 he was bound.

Bruce Laplante 26.09.2020 14:56

Main reason I believe the trib. Is before millennium is because of the fact that the Millen. represents a fulfillment of the 7th day rest. Open to discuss tho.

Glen 26.09.2020 14:21

Actually ch 4 is about the rapture = open door in heaven. BUT ON THE LORDS DAY = beginning of the Millennium T 1, day 1, to begin 1000 y long "Day of the Lord".

Glen 26.09.2020 14:14

That`s a nice outline of REV but why is the 2nd coming located in 5 separate places and the 7th bowl in 4 and mid-trib events in many locals = not chronological

Bruce Laplante 26.09.2020 11:41

The Book of Rev. Is all about the catching away in ch 4, tribulation in Chapters 6 through 18 (7yrs) and then the second coming or 2nd advent in chapter 19.

Bruce Laplante 26.09.2020 11:35

Not date setting but rather just recognizing what the Fall Festivals symbolize and recognizing God's prophetic pattern. See the same pattern in the Book of Rev.

Glen 25.09.2020 21:33

Isa 26:19-21
Mistaken. 1st 3 feasts fulfilled in 1 month so also the last 3. Raptured T 1, return T 10. Hidden during days of awe = 1 month only. Not 7 Y`s??

Glen 26.09.2020 14:09

WE are not appointed to wrath 1 Thes 5:9 (on the Day of the Lord v2) but to receive salvation (= resurrection/rapture T 1 in the receiving of glorified bodies).

Glen 26.09.2020 14:03

That is that the 7 y`s of God`s wrath we are not exempt from but only the 7 Bowls of God`s wrath that occur on the 1,000 Y Day of The Lord. I.e. the 1st 10 days

Glen 26.09.2020 13:10

The BIG mistake is to not know that the promised exemption from wrath is that of The Day of The Lord = 1,000 Y`s not 1,007. 7 Y`s is God`s wrath BUT not TDoTL.

Bruce Laplante 26.09.2020 11:30

Thanks again for your replies Glen! I see what ur saying but Daniels 70th wk has to appear somewhere in the end time fulfillment scenario....see Dan.9:27

Glen 15.09.2020 11:56

Bible does teach a 7000 y plan for man + forever. The above outline is too vague = 4,000 from creation to the Crucifixion not "coming" then 2000 to 2nd advent.

Glen 26.09.2020 04:21

Spring feasts align with His death/resurrection & last Passover week. Fall feasts = to set up of His 1,000 Y Kingdom. T1, T10 & T15-22. Both sets 3 in 1 Month.

Bruce Laplante 16.09.2020 13:39

Thanks Glen for ur comment. The reason I chose to use the wording I did was to show that the spring festivals align w His 1st coming and the fall w His 2nd.

Entrenched trinitarians are the power hungry egoist’s that play God and 90% of the rest of you just follow without knowing anything.

07.10 | 18:36

Most of you who are trinitarians only support this doctrine through pressure from your family, your church and your friends.

07.10 | 18:16

Yeshua and Yahweh are not one and the same, have never been one and the same, and are currently not one and the same as the Son sits at the right hand of power.
