The great work week of human history from Adam’s fall is typical of the pattern of the vastly longer creative periods of time presented in the first and second chapters of the book of Genesis. ‘With the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.’ (Ps. 90:4, 2 Pet. 3:8.) A careful study of the genealogical tables and history of the Old Testament shows that from Adam’s fail to Christ was about 4,000 years, or four days of 1,000 years each, corresponding in type to the first four exceedingly longer periods of what has been termed the “Creative Week” described in Genesis. From the advent of Christ down to the present time there has been close to 2,000 years, or nearly two days of 1,000 years each, thus making the close of the sixth day of mans work week and the inception of the seventh day imminent. Again, these two periods of 1,000 years each correspond in type to the exceedingly longer fifth and sixth periods of the “Creative Week. ” According to this pattern there remains for mankind a seventh 1,000 year day to complete this particular week. The seventh day in the scriptural pattern of the septenary cycle was the sabbath which means essentially, completion, implying a period of rest. It is referred to as such in Hebrews 4:4-11, where it is associated with the seventh period of the “Creative Week.” The inception of this seventh 1,000 year day from Adam’s fall will bring the inauguration of the heavenly and earthly kingdoms (when Satan is cast out) under the supervision of Jesus Christ (Rev. 20:4-6, 11:15; 12:1-10).
