Mathematically ordered heavenly bodies

The mathematically precise Cosmos. How old is the Earth? Before proceeding further I would suggest that you read the home page first.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. But how old is the Earth? When was the beginning?

Did you know that there is absolutely no scientific way to show whether the Earth is 6000 years old or even 17,000 years old for that matter? All that creationist scientists have shown is that the Earth is very much younger than evolutionary science would have us believe! From a prophetic point of view we can readily estimate the age of the Earth (See The Tenth Day).

Is there good evidence for a young Earth? Some scientists with high academic qualifications have published overwhelming evidence that the Earth is indeed very young (Creation Ministries International). The ten best examples of young Earth evidence have been listed.

Most Christians accept the standard/conventional biblical Young Earth position. Accordingly, since God created the heavens and the Earth in six 24-hour days, the Earth would currently be only about 6000 years old. But is that necessarily so?

As I demonstrate on my primary website the prophetic content of the Bible also tells us when the Earth was created and how old the Earth is right now. Can you believe that? God wants you to know that, but you will have to read to gain that understanding. God has hidden the approximate time of the end in His word. I believe that and so does Jonathan Cahn, the celebrated Messianic Rabbi from Beth Israel made famous because of his books, The Harbinger and The Paradigm, both having been New York Times best-sellers. Based on the Feasts of Israel Cahn has stated that we can perform a mathematical countdown to the Second Coming of Jesus.

Prophecies are important as Jesus demonstrated on the road to Emmaus to the two disciples

Rose Publishers vividly demonstrate how prophecies need to be fitted together. Jesus used Old Testament prophecies to reveal Himself to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus.

Christian unity amongst creationists has been hindered by this one single controversy. Wouldn’t it be appropriate for us to take the time, delve into the whole of the Bible, and see what the true age of the Earth really is?

I know that people will resist examining the whole of scripture, but for the sake of unity, wouldn’t we want to please Jesus? Unity is what Jesus prayed for in John Chapter 17. As with other things in this world anything worth having will not come easy. It will take a bit of digging to see what the whole word of God has to say. The answer is to be found in my progressive 15 articles on the Age of the Earth on my primary website www.creation6000.com, particularly in the first of the articles.

The question ‘How old is the Earth’? can be resolved by patiently and progressively fitting together the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle. God has hidden the answers in the Bible. It’s up to us to dig up the treasures.

The glory of God is to hide a thing; but the honour of kings is to search out a matter‘ (Proverbs 25:2).

Rose Publishers view all the prophecies concerning Jesus in the same vein as can be judged from its cover. My ‘whole of word’ approach is to take the entirety of scripture and examine God’s patterns and why He has been so fussy about it. Not only was there a curse upon anyone who disobeyed the cycles of sevens in the Old Testament, but the apostle John also threatened all the plagues in the book of Revelations upon him/her who dares to take away or add anything to the book. If you are a believer this becomes serious business. Indeed, if any person disregarded the Sabbath in the slightest way he was stoned to death and if any man did not attend the three major pilgrimage feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles – 7 feasts in three) he was to be cut off from Israel.

Why were the timings of the feasts divided and ordered according to complex patterns of repeating 7’s? A Jubilee Year (year of liberty) occurred in the 7th month of the 7th Sabbatical Year, which itself occurred only once every 7 years? What is God telling us? Why do all the plagues in the book of Revelation occur in 7’s? There are 49 or 7×7 unique occurrences of the word ‘seven’ in the book of Revelation. Would this not indicate that God has hidden mysteries into His word so that a faithful seeker can come to the full truth? God tells us that He has hidden treasures in His word and it is the honour of kings to find them out (Proverbs 25:2). The New Testament declares that we are kings and priests of God (Revelation 1:6). So isn’t it time to act like kings and have the patience to read my 15 articles?

In building the Tabernacle Moses was strictly warned not to deviate from the pattern shown to him on the mount. King David was likewise given the specifics of the pattern for the Temple of Solomon. Why was God so strict? Is it because in them were hidden the true time-frames and plans of God. I believe this to be true. God did not want any of it ‘diluted’ or altered for our sakes who live in the time of the end.

Excellent relevant books from Rose Publishing

Good books on required prophetic elements

I ask again. Isn’t it time that the matter was settled so that we can get on with even more important issues regarding the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ?

To arrive at the true age of the Earth one needs to consider the prophetic framework in scripture that places some of the statements in Genesis Chapters 1 and 2 in context. As I explain on my primary website taking Genesis 1 and 2 on face value is like trying to build a jigsaw puzzle and ignoring the edges. The photo of a team constructing a jigsaw puzzle shows everyone building their contribution on a positive foundation except for the person on bottom left who is ignoring the proper placement of the edge pieces. He will have to tear down his contribution and start all over again giving proper heed to the edge and corner pieces of the puzzle.

Ignoring edge pieces in solving jigsaw puzzles can be disastrous

High angle view of office staff solving jigsaw puzzle with mixed success.  Failure is the result of ignoring the framework, the vital edge pieces provided throughout the entire word of God!

Those willing to read my 15 articles on the age of the Earth on my primary website,  www.creation6000.com, will be rewarded with the truth.
