God's Day of Rest and the Lord's Day

Let us begin, shall we? We know that God created the earth and everything within it in six days and rested on the seventh day. This seventh day event became a sacred day known as the Sabbath Day in which man rested from his previous six days of labor.

The Bible also shares with us in Genesis, Chapter 1 that God worked 6 days and rested on the 7th day.

Genesis 2:2

And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.

God also made this law apply to His people. They were to work six days and rest on the seventh. This day is called Sabbath to the Jewish people. However, for the Christian timeline the seventh day (God's day of rest) is Sunday ... Sabbath versus the Lord's Day.

Exodus 20:9-10

9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shall gather in the fruits thereof.

Exodus 23:10

And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:

If the Jewish people had a servant, they were to work six years and be set free the seventh year. The Jewish people were also to work the land and gather fruits from that parcel of land for six years but not in the seventh, so the land could rest as to produce more after the year of rest.

Are you sensing a pattern developing?

Prophetic Bible Timeline Chart

Every aspect of life is a six days on and the seventh day is for rest. It is part of the Bible Timeline Chart that God created. It also affects the Christian timeline as you will soon see.

Now, it gets a little deeper as we head on so kick back and focus. Even Jesus, when He was put on the Cross, hung there an entire six hours, and died at the "beginning" of the 7th hour.

Mark 15:25, 34-37

25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified Him.
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, He calleth Elias.
36 And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take Him down.
37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.

Now, many people get very confused by what Jesus said on the Cross when he said "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" ... Did He really believe that God had forsaken Him? Not a chance !!! He was not forsaken, but rather Jesus was simply using a quote from a prophecy from their own Scripture to prove that HE was the awaited Messiah, who they were crucifying.

Feel free to check out this study if you would like to confirm:

Now, back to our Christian Timeline Bible study ... So, they crucified Jesus at the third hour of the Jewish day (9:00 AM) and He died at the ninth Hour of the Jewish day (3:00 PM) which is six hours and just when the seventh hour began ... It was over. Jesus was truly experiencing His Spiritual rest.

Christian Timeline Bible Study Truth
Bible Timeline Chart Quest

Well, we can clearly see a pattern created by God now which affects all of us. In particular Christians as we proceed into the future to see what God has on the Christian Timeline plan.

We have learned from this pattern, that there are six time periods of work or endurance and then one time period time of rest and/or peace. Whether it be hours, days, years decades, centuries and as you will discover from the Bible Timeline chart ... The Bible reveals that God created a timeline cycle of six thousand years and then a one thousand year period of rest which is known as the Millennium.

The Bible says that after the End Times, there is a one thousand year period of time, in which Satan is imprisoned and there is a time of peace and rest for mankind. Yes ... Yet another six time periods and a seventh called the Millennium which is definitely deemed as a time of rest and peace for one thousand years. This is part of God's Bible timeline chart which definitely affects the Christian Timeline and in truth, was created for God's people (Christians) to rest.

Revelation 20:3-4

3 And cast him [Satan] 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.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The Formula

1000 Years = One Day to God

The Bible reveals that Heaven and Earth are reserved for fire and judgment, but that one day to God is 1000 years to mankind:

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.

It also says that a thousand years in God's sight are as but a day, as a "watch" in the night.

Psalms 90:4

For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

Bible Timeline Chart Details

Now, let us do a little simple math ... Since it is written that God says that mankind shall work (serve) six days and rest on the seventh and 1000 years to man is, but one day to God and there is a one thousand year time period known as the Millennium ...

This brings forth one interesting question ... Does that mean that there are six thousand years and then the End Times, which coincidentally (yeah right) lasts for seven years and then then the Son-derful one thousand year Millennium begins? Note: You will learn the details of the End Times if you choose to continue on our End Times path, which you can access at the end of this study.

Wow ... Now, that certainly brings up an even more interesting question

How many years have passed from Adam until today?

We have been given specific dates throughout the Bible from Adam to Jesus, so we can see how much time has passed from Adam and to Jesus. We will then see if we can figure out how many years have elapsed from Jesus to present day. The following is a Bible timeline chart and Christian timeline calendar as well based strictly on the Bible. It took years to perform this extensive study, so although the legwork has been done for you, the Scripture locations of each and every detail have been provided for you, so that you can easily confirm the findings on the Bible Timeline chart.

Let us proceed ... The Bible tells us at what age a person was when each son was born to the individual before him and gives other dates and years of specific events, throughout the entire Bible. We will start to add up all these years and use Adam as our starting point, being the first man in the Bible, and use the term AA (After Adam) to show how many total years had passed from the previous date to the next.

The Bible will indicate how many years had passed, so you only need a calculator (And maybe a little snack and a beverage) to add up the amount of years that have passed from Adam to Jesus.

Christian Timeline Bible Study Events
Bible Timeline Chart Proof

The starred items below correspond with the items in the chart above with the same amount of stars.


Genesis 5:32

And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

This means Noah began having his three sons at age 500. They were not triplets.

Ham was youngest so they were not all born at age 500.

Genesis 9:24

And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

This is further proven because Arphaxad was born when Shem was age 100 (which was 2 years after the Flood).

Genesis 11:10

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


Genesis 11:26

And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

Terah lived 70 years and begat his three sons.

Like Noah though, they were not all born at same time, this is just when he began having children. They were not triplets.

So, we must search the scriptures a little as to discern Terah's age, when he had Abram (not when he started having his children).

We know that Terah died when he was 205:

Genesis 11:32

And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.

The very next verse in the Bible reveals that once Abram's Dad died, God called Abram to leave Haran.

Genesis 12:1

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

This is confirmed again:

Acts 7:4

Then came he [Abram] out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran [Haran]: and from thence, when his father [Terah] was dead, He [God] removed him [Abram] into this land, wherein ye now dwell.

Abram was 75 years old when he left Haran just after Terah died.

Genesis 12:4

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.

Doing the math ... Terah was 205 when he died.
Abram was 75 when he left Haran after Dad died.

205 - 75 = 130

Terah was 130 years old when Abram was born.

So, the timeline would be ... 2121 B.C. - 130 = 1991 B.C. = Abram's birth.


Genesis 12:4

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.

Exodus 12:40-41

40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.

Acts 7:6

And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.

Galatians 3:16-17

16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

The time between the promise made to Abraham when he left Haran headed for the Promised land and the Law (Old Covenant) given to Moses in the wilderness after the Exodus was 430 years.


Time of Judges

Acts 13:16-22

16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience.
17 The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought he them out of it.
18 And about the time of forty years suffered he their manners in the wilderness.
19 And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Chanaan, he divided their land to them by lot.
20 And after that he gave unto them judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.
21 And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years.
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.

Paul shares that after the exodus that there were judges for about 450 years.


Elijah was a prophet in and around 875 B.C.

Christian Timeline Bible Study Discussion
Bible Timeline Chart Dates

So, we see that there has been 4000 years from Adam until Jesus was born and 4033 years from Adam to Jesus' resurrection.

Now, comes the tricky part ... We must determine how many years have passed from Jesus' resurrection until present day as to continue the Bible Calendar.

This period of time is known as the "Time of the Gentiles:"

Luke 21:24

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Romans 11:25

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.

Time of the Gentiles Sign Bible Timeline Chart

It is the period of time which begins after Jesus' Resurrection but before the promised 1000 years of peace on Earth known as the Millennium. Just before the Millennium, there will be a Biblical 7 year time period known as the End Times.

So, from the Time of Jesus' Resurrection to these End Times is the period of time known as the Time of the Gentiles, which is a time where Gentiles (individuals from any nation other than Israel) have been given the opportunity to accept Jesus as their Saviour.

How do we know that the Time of the Gentiles didn't begin until the death of Jesus?

Matthew 10:5-7

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

As you can see, the Lord has allotted a specified period of time for the Gentiles to accept Jesus as their Savior based on the number 7 Bible patterns which began at His Resurrection and the start of the New Covenant and continues until the End Times.

Galatians 4:4-5

4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

This fulness of time refers to the Time of the Jewish people who were under law given by Moses.

John 1:17

For the law was given by Moses, but Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ.

Of course, if you read Romans, Chapter 11 ... You'll find that one of God's chosen people of Israel can be saved during the Time of the Gentiles as well.

The New Covenant (which would include the Gentiles) could not begin until the Testator of it ... Died:

Hebrews 9:15-17

15 And for this cause He [Jesus] is the mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

Christian Timeline Bible Study Research
Bible Timeline Chart and You

So, it appears that the New Testament (New Covenant) and the Time of the Gentiles began after the Death and Resurrection of our precious Lord and Savior ... Jesus.

If we look up at our Bible Timeline chart, we see that Abraham who was called by God to become the Father of God's chosen people, was born around 2000 AA. If God's chosen people began with Abraham and the promise continued from about 2000 AA until 4000 AA which is 2000 years then that would suggest that 2000 years would be given as the Time of the Gentiles as well and the start of that 2000 years is when the the Christian timeline begins.

America has a calendar based on 365 days. They call it A.D. (in the year of our Lord) which contrary to popular belief ... A.D. does not stand for "After Death" but instead stands for "anno Domini" which means "Year Dominion."

According to the American calendar, Jesus was born at year "0" and was crucified and resurrected in 33 A.D.

Since it has been 4033 years from Adam to Jesus' Resurrection, we need only determine how much time has passed from 33 A.D. to present day as to find out how many years it has been from Adam to present day.

Let us take the year 2020.

From 33 A.D. to the year 2020 A.D. is 1987 years.

So, lets add the 4033 years to the 1987 years and we get ... 6020 years.

Wow ... Talk about exciting !!!

Hmmmmmmm, that is a mere 20 years too many though.

7000 Year Prophecy Problem
The Number Seven Bible Pattern Concerns

The Jewish calendar which is what God based His prophecies on, is different than other Calendars. It has been changed many times as well as you can see at this online encyclopedia.

Calendar of Christian Timeline Bible Study
Bible Timeline Chart Path

There is another minor problem ... The calendar itself has been changed many times, over the last two thousand years, by different entities and nations that came into power, which makes it difficult to determine exactly how many days have truly passed as to find out the exact day, which was probably God's plan since He said nobody knows the day or hour the End Times come upon us.

If you would like to see these changes in the calendars of the past as to see what I am talking about, you can always check out Wikipedia concerning Gregorian calendar. There have been so many changes that it would be impossible to track down the exact date.

It is very strange though that it is approximately 6000 years from Adam to present day. Could it be that the changes in the calendars over the centuries are one reason that we came up with 6021 years? I mean even the Pope disagrees with the date of the birth of Jesus.

Perhaps we do not know the exact date because of what we were told clearly by Jesus:

Matthew 24:36

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the Angels of Heaven, but my Father only.
