The 7000 Year Plan of Elohim
The prophet Moses said in Psalms 90:4 that 1000 years was as one day in the sight of Elohim. As time passed, the Spirit of Truth revealed that there was a corresponding theme between each of the seven millennial days of mankind’s history and the seven Hebrew Days in the creation sequence. On Day One of creation, on the first day of the week on Yom Ri-shon, light was separated from darkness, and in the first millennium Adam’s sin separated him from Elohim’s light. On the second day, on Yom She-ni, there was a separation of the waters above and below, and in the second millennium, the waters above and below were used in judgment. On the third day, on Yom Shli-shi, plants yielding seed were created, and in the third millennium a promise was made to Abraham, that through his seed – יהושע the Messiah – all the nations of the earth would be blessed.
On the fourth day on Yom Re-vi-i the lights in heaven were created, and in the fourth millennium kings and prophets were given as lights to Israel and יהושע the Messiah was born. On the fifth day on Yom Ham-i-shi living creatures were created, and in the fifth millennium יהושע the Messiah died that we might become new creatures inheriting eternal life. On the sixth day on Yom Shi-shi man was told to fill the earth and subdue it, and in the sixth millennium man has filled the earth and subdued it. On the seventh day on Sha-bat Elohim rested, and in the seventh millennium the earth will be restored and man will rest in the Millennial Sabbath which is the Age of Life or the Millennial Kingdom. Peter said in 2 Peter 3:8 not to be ignorant of this one thing – with יהוה one day is as 1000 years and 1000 years is as one day.
Image Above NOTE: The heavens and the earth were created to be perfect by Elohim (Genesis 1:1). The time when the universe was perfect is known as The World that Was in Hebraic thought. A spiritual rebellion led by Satan caused the earth to become desolate and ruined (Genesis 1:2). Elohim judged this rebellion by separating light / righteousness from darkness / wickedness (Genesis 1:3). This judgment initiated the creation of the physical universe and the Present Age in which mankind is striving with Elohim. The Present Age contains three smaller ages: the Age of Desolation, the Age of Instruction and the Age of the Messiah. יהוה told Noah that after 120 Jubilee Years He would not strive with man (Genesis 6:3) and therefore, redeemed mankind will be granted immortality at this time. The Millennial Kingdom begins in Civil Year 6001. The universe will be perfect again after the Age of Life when Satan and his followers will be cast into the Lake of Fire in the World to Come.
In the Creation Calendar, there are 12 Hebrew Hours of equal duration between sunset and sunrise, and 12 Hebrew Hours of equal duration between sunrise and sunset. Hebrew Days begin and end at the moment of sunset. Hebrew Months begin when the moon’s crescent first becomes potentially visible to the naked eye in Jerusalem, and are numbered from 1 to 12 in a regular year, or from 1 to 13 in a leap year. Hebrew Years are based on the seasons which are determined by the position of the earth in relation to the sun at the equinoxes and solstices. Hebrew Years are determined by the rule of the equinox which always places Day 15 of Month 1 on or after the Hebrew Day of the spring equinox.
The Scriptures teach in Exodus 12:1-2 that a Spiritual Year begins in Month 1 in late winter or early spring. The Scriptures teach in Leviticus 25:8-10 that a Civil Year begins in Month 7 in late summer or early fall. There are three types of Civil Years color coded in the Creation Calendar. In the 50 Year Jubilee Cycle, a Sabbatical Year occurs every seventh year and is colored blue, and the fiftieth Jubilee Year in the Jubilee Cycle is colored purple. A regular Civil Year is neither a Sabbatical nor a Jubilee Year and is tan colored. The special Jubilee Year begins on Day 10 of Month 7 on Yom Kippur according to Leviticus 25:9 and Ezekiel 40:1. All other Civil Years begin on Day 1 of Month 7 on Yom Teruah. As the Jubilee Year governs all Civil Years in the Jubilee Cycle, all Civil Years must begin in Month 7 in late summer or early fall.

In the Beginning
The spiritual universe was created and existed before the physical universe was created. According toGenesis 1:2, the earth became desolate and ruined. The order in the spiritual universe was threatened when Satan rebelled causing a disruption of the world, and this disruption initiated the creation of the physical universe. Elohim created the dimension of time in the physical universe to indicate when the order in His universe would be restored, and when the universe would be perfected.
The universe was perfect before the disruption of the world in the Prototypical Jubilee Year 0. This time is known as Olam She’avar or The World that Was. It is for this reason that the Jubilee Year is a concept connected with the original, perfected state in which Elohim created the world and intended it to exist. AsLeviticus 25:8-11 indicates the Jubilee Year is on a 50 year cycle, it follows logically that the restoration of the universe will occur after 6000 Civil Years in the Age of Life at the end of Jubilee Year 120. For יהוה truly said in Genesis 6:3 that He would not strive with man after 120 Jubilee Years. Consequently, the perfection of the universe that occurs after 7000 Civil Years in Olam Haba or The World to Come is linked with the end of Jubilee Year 140 in Hebraic thought.
The Year of Jubilee – The Restoration of All Things
The Jubilee Year became important to the children of Israel during the Age of Instruction. The first time Moses descended with the 10 Commandments, the children of Israel were found worshipping a golden calf. Israel was given a second chance with Elohim when Moses descended with the 10 Commandments a second time on Yom Kippur beginning Jubilee Year 51. The instruction to count the Jubilee Year was ultimately given for the purpose of instructing mankind on when the restoration of the universe at the end of Jubilee Year 120 would occur and subsequently the perfection of the universe at the end of Jubilee Year 140.
The Jubilee Year represents the restoration of law, order, justice, peace, freedom, prosperity and harmony in the universe – or the restoration of all things in Hebraic thought. The Messiah said in Matthew 17:10-13 that the restoration of all things was linked with the coming of Elijah. Peter prophesied in Acts 3:19-23 that the heavens would receive the Messiah of Israel until the time of the restoration of all things or Jubilee Year 120. At this time יהושע the Messiah of Israel will return and save all of those who hear Him. Those who do not hear Him will be destroyed. This will occur during the Day of יהוה at the end of the Age of the Messiah to fulfill the word of יהוה in Deuteronomy 18:15-19. The perfection of the universe occurs when Satan and his followers are cast into the Lake of Fire at the end of Jubilee Year 140 according to Revelation 20:7-9.
The World that Was – The Time Before Time
The time before Day One of the physical universe is referred to as Olam She’avar or The World that Was in Hebraic thought. In terms of the 7000 Year Plan of Elohim, the spiritual universe existed in Prototypical Jubilee Year 0 which is when the heavens and the earth were created according to Genesis 1:1.
The angels and the spirits of men were created in The World That Was before the time of the ages according to 2 Timothy 1:8-11, Titus 1:1-3 and Jude 1:6. That was when the foundation of the earth was laid according to Job 38:4, Psalms 102:25, Isaiah 48:13, Zechariah 12:1 and Hebrews 1:10. Olam She’avar is referred to as the time before the disruption of the world in John 17:24 and 1 Peter 1:17-21.
The children of Elohim were chosen during Olam She’avar before the disruption of the world according to Ephesians 1:3-6. יהושע the Messiah said in John 15:26-27 that the Spirit of Truth would testify of Him, and that His disciples would bear witness of this because they have been with Him from the beginning of creation. This contrasts greatly with those whose father is the devil who are against יהושע the Messiah. The devil was a murderer from the beginning of creation as יהושע said in John 8:42-44.
In Genesis 6:3 Elohim told Noah He would not strive with man throughout all the ages, and in Isaiah 57:15-16 He gives the reason why. יהוה said that He will not strive through all the ages but will revive the spirits of the humble and the contrite (a reference to the resurrection of the righteous at the end of the Age of the Messiah) because “the spirit would fail before Me, and the breath of those whom I have made.” From these words it is understood that the spirits of all people existed before the physical universe was created.
In Paul’s mind, Elohim created the spirits of all mankind in Olam She’avar before the disruption of the worldand the creation of the physical universe. This is how Paul in Ephesians 1:3-6 understood that the children of Elohim could be chosen before the disruption of the world. Paul understood that there is a place in heaven where the spirits of the unborn are kept until it is time for them to be conceived. For this reason it has been taught that the Son of David will not come, and the Age of Life will not begin, until every spirit that Elohim has created has been implanted in an embryo.
One of the reasons procreation is so important in Hebraic thought is because of the belief that procreation will result in the ultimate deliverance of mankind. The first commandment of the Scriptures is to be fruitful and multiply according to Genesis 1:28. All of the spirits which Elohim has created must be joined to a physical body (an embryo) before the Messiah returns and the Age of Life begins. The Messiah said in Luke 20:34-38 that the redeemed will be given immortal bodies in the Age of Life. Paul also said in 1 Corinthians 15:54. that every redeemed soul which Elohim has made will be granted an immortal body in the Age of Life. Those who are resurrected who are considered worthy to attain the Age of Life will not marry or be given in marriage for they will be “equal to the angels.”
During Olam She’avar or The World that Was everything in the universe was perfect as every spiritual being lovingly served Elohim. At the end of Olam She’avar the earth became desolate and ruined and darkness was on the face of the deep according to Genesis 1:2. This chaotic darkness refers to the rebellion of Satan. The Hebrew word used for desolate in Genesis 1:2 is tohū תהו which is the name given to the age that is defined by its epoch – the Age of Tohu or the Age of Desolation.
The Disruption of the World – The Satanic Rebellion
At the moment Satan rebelled he was cast out of the third heaven and there was a separation between light and darkness in the spiritual universe. This rebellion caused a disruption of the world. The separation of light from darkness was a separation between righteousness and wickedness in the spiritual universe, as the lights in the physical universe had not yet been created. The apostle Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-5 there were children of light and children of darkness. In John 12:36, יהושע the Messiah advised everyone to believe in Him and to become children of light.
The separation of light from darkness, or the fall of Satan, is described by Elohim in Genesis 1:3-5. Isaiah compared the fall of Satan with the fall of the king of Babylon in Isaiah 14:12-15. Ezekiel used the king of Tyre as a metaphor for Satan in Ezekiel 28:11-19. The expulsion of Satan from heaven is told again from the perspective of יהושע the Messiah in Luke 10:18. יהושע said in John 8:44 that the devil was a murderer from the beginning and this is when he was expelled from the third heaven. The separation of light from darkness, or the fall of Satan, initiated the creation of the physical universe at sunset beginning Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1.
Image Above NOTE: Before the physical universe was created there was Elohim (John 17:5). In the beginning Elohim created the spiritual universe which was perfect (Genesis 1:1). The World that Was remained perfect until a satanic rebellion caused the world to become desolate and ruined (Genesis 1:2). At that moment, light was separated from darkness on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1 (Genesis 1:3).Elohim created the physical universe during the seven day creation sequence initiating the first Jubilee Cycle, the Present Ageand the Age of Desolation. The countdown to the end of the ages commenced at Day 1 of the creation of the physical universe.
The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the creation of the physical universe is sunset in Jerusalem beginning Yom Ri-shon (the first day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1.
This moment is equivalent to 16:05 [± 30 minutes] Universal Time on Saturday, October 7, 3986 B.C.E. on the proleptic (retro-calculated) Julian Calendar. The first Jubilee Cycle commenced at this moment when Elohim separated light from darkness according to Genesis 1:3-5.
This moment represents the birth of the world. One of the many names given to Day 1 of Month 7 in Hebraic thought is Hayom Harat Olam היום הרת עולם or The Birthday of the World. The physical universe began when Elohim judged a rebellion of Satan, the prince of this world, who was a murderer from the beginning according to John 8:44, John 12:31, 14:30, 16:7-11 and 1 John 3:8.
Satan’s rebellion resulted in a disruption of the world that is mentioned in Matthew 13:33-35, 25:34, Luke 11:49-51, Hebrews 4:3, 9:26, Revelation 13:8 and Revelation 17:8. The word for disruption (katabolē καταβολη) is often mistranslated as foundation. The verb kataballō καταβαλλω means casting down or overthrow as can be seen in 2 Corinthians 4:8-10. Accordingly, the noun katabolē καταβολη, derived from and cognate with the verb kataballō καταβαλλω, ought to be translated disruption or ruin.
The disruption or ruin of the world occurred at the time it was tohū va-bohū תהו ובהו which has been translated in Genesis 1:2 as formless and void. These words tohū va-bohū תהו ובהו are more accurately translated as desolate and ruined. The disruption of the world occurred when the earth became desolate and ruined from Satan’s rebellion. The Midrash Rabbah 2.4 interprets the Spirit of Elohim hovering over the face of the waters as being the Spirit of Messiah, and further links the Spirit of יהוה in Isaiah 11:1-2 as resting on the Messiah. At the moment of the disruption, Elohim initiated the seven day creation sequence and the Present Age and the Age of Desolation.
Image Above NOTE: The account of the creation of the world is told in Genesis 1:1. The account of the disruption of the world is told in Genesis 1:2.At the moment the disruption occurred, Elohim judged this satanic rebellion when He initiated the seven day creation sequence. The story of the creation sequence is told in the order it happened in Genesis 1:3-2:3. Certain details from the first five days are told in Genesis 2:4-6. Certain details of the sixth day in the Garden of Eden are told in Genesis 2:7-25. The bodies of Adam and Hawah were created on Day 6 of Month 7.
There are several accounts of the seven day creation sequence of the physical universe. Genesis 1:3-2:3tells the entire story in the order it happened. Genesis 2:4-6 recounts events from the first five days of creation and gives details of the mist that arose from the ground to water the earth before Elohim caused it to rain. Genesis 2:7-25 gives details of events that happened in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day of creation.
The tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and other trees that were pleasant to the eye and good for food were created in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day (Genesis 2:9). The rest of the world was full of trees before this on the third day (Genesis 1:11-13). Birds were created from the ground in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day for man to name (Genesis 2:19). Birds were created from water before this on the fifth day (Genesis 1:20-23) Some animals were created in the Garden of Eden on the sixth day to be named by man after man was created (Genesis 2:19-20). Some animals were created on the sixth day before man was created (Genesis 1:24-25). As some animals, birds and trees were created in the Garden of Eden after man was created, man became a witness to Elohim’s creative acts.
Six days after the disruption of the world on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 1, the physical body of Adam was formed from the earth on Day 6 / Month 7 / Year 1. The physical body of Hawah was formed from Adam’s rib on this day. When Elohim breathed into Adam’s nostrils, Adam’s sprit was joined to his body and he became a living soul (Genesis 2:7). Adam and Hawah are the father and mother of mankind, and all people living on earth today can trace their genetic heritage back to them. Every person’s physical body descends from Adam and Hawah’s physical bodies.
Image Above NOTE: The end of the Age of Desolation initiated the Age of Instruction on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 2001. The Age of Desolation began when the earth became desolate and ruined (Genesis 1:2). During this age Adam and Hawah were driven out of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1-24), a global flood further destroyed the earth during Noah’s time (Genesis 7:1-8:22), and a global dispersion of people occurred after the languages of mankind were confused at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9). However, there was hope for mankind when Elohim made a covenant with Noah (Genesis 9:8-17), and when Abram was born at the end of the Age of Desolation (Genesis 11:26). The transition between the Age of Desolation and the Age of Instruction occurred at the end of of Jubilee Year 40.
The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the transition from the Age of Desolation to the Age of Instruction is sunset beginning Sha-bat (the seventh day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 2001. This moment is equivalent to 15:45 [± 20 minutes] Universal Time on Friday, October 5, 1986 B.C.E. on the proleptic (retro-calculated) Julian Calendar. As Moses received the tôrâh תורה or instructions from Mount Sinai during this age it is named the Age of Torah or the Age of Instruction. All the prophets from Elijah to Malachi lived in this age and יהושע the Messiah was born at the end of this age (Hebrews 9:26).
David knew during the Age of Instruction that his soul would not be abandoned in Sheol at the first death(Psalms 16:10). Sheol, which is often translated as the grave, is a place where thinking and awareness ceases (Psalms 6:5, Ecclesiastes 9:5), where there is no working, or planning, or knowledge, or wisdom(Ecclesiastes 9:10) or hope (Isaiah 38:18). In almost all cases, the future outcome of an individual soul has been decided at the first death. In some special cases, people such as Lazarus have been raised to life after the first death (John 11:43-44), thereby having their mortal lives temporarily extended in the Present Age.
Image Above NOTE: The end of the Age of Instruction initiated the Age of the Messiah on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 4001. It was during the Age of Instruction that the Creator established His covenant with mankind through Abraham (Genesis 12:1-9, 13:14-17, 15:1-21, 17:1-27,22:1-18), Isaac (Genesis 26:1-5, 26:23-25), Jacob (Genesis 28:10-22, 35:9-15), Moses (Exodus 19:16-24:3), and David (Psalms 89:3-4, 89:19-37). Many prophets were sent to Israel during this age, and the Messiah was ultimately born at the end of the Age of Instruction (Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2:6-7, Hebrews 9:26). Isaiah prophesied that the children of Israel would be taught by יהוה(Isaiah 54:13), and that is exactly what happened during the Age of the Messiah. The Messiah taught in parables, and then renewed the covenant with mankind by giving His life for all who will believe and obey Him (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 8:8-12).The transition between the Age of Instruction and the Age of the Messiah occurred at the end of Jubilee Year 80.
The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the transition from the Age of Instruction to the Age of the Messiah is sunset beginning Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 4001. This moment is equivalent to 16:04 [± 10 minutes] Universal Time on Tuesday, September 3, 15 C.E. on the proleptic (retro-calculated) Julian Calendar. יהושע the Messiah came as the Redeemer at the beginning of the Age of the Messiah (Luke 24:21, Galatians 4:4-5, Titus 2:11-14). He returns as Saviour of the world at the end of this age (John 4:42, 1 John 4:14). His work at both the beginning and end of this age gives this age its name.
The Age of the Messiah began on Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on the Messiah’s 17th birthday on New Moon 7 in 15 C.E. The Messiah read from Isaiah 61:1-2 in the synagogue in Nazareth on Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on His 31st birthday on New Moon 7 in 29 C.E. The Age of Life is destined to begin on Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on New Moon 7 in 2015 C.E.
The Last Days and the Age of the Messiah
The last four millennial days in the 7000 Year Plan of Elohim are called the last days. This critical point has gone unrecognized by many who have not understood the span of history covered by this phrase. There are many fascinating prophecies about the last days.
Jacob prophesied about the last days in Genesis 49:1. Balaam prophesied about them in Numbers 24:14.Moses prophesied about them in Deuteronomy 4:30-31 and 31:29. Ezekiel used this phrase in Ezekiel 38:16 to refer to the time when Gog, who was Prince Nebuzaradan, and the Babylonian army were destroyed by fire on Yom Teruah in 594 B.C.E. in the fourth millennial day. Isaiah spoke of the last days in Isaiah 2:2.Jeremiah spoke of them in Jeremiah 23:20, 30:24, 48:47 and 49:39. Daniel spoke of them in Daniel 2:28 and 10:14. Hosea spoke of them in Hosea 3:5. Joel spoke of them in Joel 2:28-32. Micah spoke of them in Micah 4:1. Paul spoke of them in 2 Timothy 3:1. The writer of Hebrews spoke of them in Hebrews 1:1-2. James spoke of them in James 5:3. Peter quoted the prophet Joel about the last days in Acts 2:17-21, and he also referred to them in 2 Peter 3:1-4.
The Age of the Messiah takes place in midst of the last days in the fifth and sixth millennial days. The Age of Life is also in the last days as it is the seventh millennial day. The Messiah raised Lazarus from the dead in the Age of the Messiah and the disciples were confused when the Messiah told them Lazarus was sleeping until He explained to them that Lazarus was dead (John 11:11-15). יהושע the Messiah taught a parable in which a beggar went to Abraham’s bosom while a rich man went to a place of torment (Luke 16:19-31). יהושע the Messiah taught in parables in order to reveal truth to the spiritually enlightened while concealing truth from the spiritually blind (Mark 4:11-12, Luke 8:10) thereby fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 6:9-10.
The parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus is an allegory in which the Messiah used symbolic language to condemn false teachers, false shepherds and the merciless rich – represented in the parable by the Pharisees (Luke 16:14). The parable teaches that the decisions a person makes in the Present Age have lasting implications for one’s future. After death there is no opportunity for a person to change the outcome.
The Resurrection of the Righteous and the Damned
The parable teaches that after death there are only two possibilities: the resurrection of the righteous or the resurrection of the damned.
In Pharisaical thought, it was possible for two people who knew each other in life, to hold conversations after death (even though in reality this is impossible). The rich man was an upper class Pharisee, and Lazarus was (from a Pharisaical perspective) in a class with the dogs or the Gentiles.
In Pharisaical thought, Abraham’s bosom was a place where those of the faith of Abraham are gathered after death. The name Lazarus (Eleazar) was used for the beggar because it means El has helped. In the end, Lazarus attains to the resurrection of the righteous and Abraham’s bosom – the Age of Life, while the rich Pharisee attains to the resurrection of the damned and a place of torment – the Lake of Fire. This parable is a stiff indictment against all false teachers, false shepherds and the merciless rich.
Paul said during the Age of the Messiah that a person has a spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Ever since Elohim created Adam and Hawah, a living soul comes into existance when a physical body is formed in the womb and joined to its spirit which existed from the beginning (Jeremiah 1:5). At the first death, the body returns to dust (Genesis 3:19), the spirit returns to Elohim (Luke 23:46, Acts 7:59), and the soul falls asleep (Deuteronomy 31:16, 2 Samuel 7:12, 1 Kings 1:21, 2:10, 11:21, 11:43, 14:20, 14:31, 15:8,15:24, 16:6, 16:28, 22:40, 22:50, 2 Kings 8:24, 10:35, 13:9, 13:13, 14:16, 14:22, 14:29, 15:7, 15:22, 15:38,16:20, 20:21, 21:18, 24:6, 2 Chronicles 9:31, 12:16, 14:1, 16:13, 21:1, 26:2, 26:23, 27:9, 28:27, 32:33,33:20, Job 7:21, Matthew 27:51-53, 1 Corinthians 11:30, 15:6, 15:16-20, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-15 and 2 Peter 3:1-4).
The Scriptures teach that while the body turns to dust at the first death, the spirit returns to Elohim and the soul rests. A person’s soul does not go to heaven or hell at death, but rests, waiting to be re-united with a new body that will either inherit immortality in the Age of Life, or the Second Death in the Lake of Fire in The World to Come. Just before he died, Daniel was told that he would rest, and then arise to receive his inheritance at the end of days (Daniel 12:13) which is a reference to Jubilee Year 120. The Age of Life will begin at the end of Jubilee Year 120 (Daniel 12:2). The souls of all the people who have died in the Present Age will awaken at either the first resurrection of the righteous, or the second resurrection of the damned. These are the only two possibilities according to the Scriptures (Daniel 12:2, John 5:28-29, Acts 24:15).soul sleep?
When יהושע the Messiah was being crucified beside a criminal, He truly said that day, that the criminal would be with Him in Paradise or the Age of Life (Luke 23:43). The Messiah did not tell the man that he would be with Him in Paradise that day, although the man’s spirit would have been with Elohim that day. For the Messiah said that no one other than Himself has ever gone to heaven (John 3:13). When Paul said that to be absent from the body was to be present with יהוה – he was speaking of the spirit (2 Corinthians 5:8). Paul believed that the spirit could be in or out of the body (2 Corinthians 12:1-4). He told the Colossians that while he was absent from them in the body, he was with them in spirit (Colossians 2:5).
Throughout the Age of Desolation and the Age of Instruction, a mystery was hidden that was revealed during the Age of the Messiah. More than 4000 years after the disruption of the world and the seven day creation sequence, Paul understood a mystery hidden since the time of the ages began (Romans 16:25-27). The revealed mystery was that Gentiles, who turned away from their idolatry, could be joined to the commonwealth of Israel through יהושע the Messiah (Ephesians 3:1-7). They would no longer be regarded as strangers and foreigners, but as fellow citizens of the household of Elohim (Ephesians 2:19). The restoration of the commonwealth of Israel will be complete before the Age of Life or the Millennial Kingdom begins.
At the resurrection of the righteous, a justified person’s soul will be permanently joined to a new spiritual body (1 Corinthians 15:42-54). The Messiah Himself taught that those who believe in Him and who are living in their mortal physical bodies at the time when He returns will never die (John 11:23-26). Paul longed to be clothed with his spiritual body and to be absent from his physical body (2 Corinthians 5:1-8).יהושע the Messiah, who is the firstfruits of all who believe and obey Elohim (1 Corinthians 15:20-23), was in His spiritual body after His resurrection (Luke 24:36-43).
Civil Year 6000 is the last year in the Age of the Messiah and this year is also known as the Day of יהוה (Isaiah 34:8, 61:2, 63:4). It is the year of Elohim’s vengeance that will burn as an oven when the wicked will be judged by fire and will be ashes under the feet of the righteous (Malachi 4:1-3). The elements will melt with fervent heat (2 Peter 3:10-13). Paul prophesied that יהושע the Messiah will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of Elohim, and that the righteous dead in Messiah will rise first (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18) as they shall awake at the last trump (1 Corinthians 15:50-55). The Age of the Messiah will end when the Age of Life begins.
Image Above NOTE: The end of the Present Age and the Age of the Messiah initiates the Age of Life or the Millennial Kingdom on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 6001. The righteous dead are to be awakened by the sound of the last trump (1 Corinthians 15:52). The mistakes made by the Israelites in the Exodus from Egypt were written to instruct the faithful who are alive and remaining at the end of the age – the Present Age and the Age of the Messiah (1 Corinthians 10:1-12). When יהושע the Messiah was last on earth at the beginning of the Age of the Messiah, He said that He would always be with those who believe and obey Him – even to the end of the age(Matthew 28:19-20). The Marriage of the Lamb will take place at the beginning of the Age of Life (Matthew 22:1-14, Matthew 25:1-13, Luke 12:35-40, Luke 14:1-24, Revelation 3:20-21, Revelation 20:6). The transition from the Age of the Messiah to the Age of Life occurs at the end of Jubilee Year 120.
The Creation Calendar’s epoch (reference date) for the beginning of the Age of Life or the Future Age or the Millennial Kingdom is sunset in Jerusalem beginning Yom Re-vi-i (the fourth day of the week) on Day 1 /Month 7 / Year 6001. This moment is equivalent to 15:46 Universal Time on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 C.E. on the Gregorian Calendar. At this time the Marriage of the Lamb begins according to Revelation 19:6-9.
In John 2:1-11, יהושע the Messiah alluded to the idea that the Marriage of the Lamb will occur after sixmillennial days are filled to the brim. It was at Cana that the Messiah turned water into wine at a marriage after six waterpots were filled to the brim. This first public miracle of יהושע the Messiah is deeply prophetic, as it convinced the disciples that יהושע was the Messiah who would rule in the Millennial Kingdom at the end of 6000 Civil Years of mankind’s history. The first six millennial days of mankind’s history are further grouped into three ages: the Age of Desolation, the Age of Instruction and the Age of the Messiah.
The End of the Age
These three ages are compared to three measures of meal by יהושע the Messiah. The Messiah taught in Matthew 13:33 and Luke 13:20-21 that during these three ages, which form the whole of the Present Age since the disruption of the world, the kingdom of Elohim on earth has been leavened with spiritual, moral and political corruption. However, the Messiah will cleanse the earth from sin before the Age of Life begins according to Deuteronomy 32:22-29, Malachi 4:1-6 and Matthew 3:8-12.
In Matthew 28:18-20, the Messiah said He would be with those who believe and obey Him even to the end of the Age of the Messiah. Paul said in Ephesians 1:7-10 that in the fullness of time by the end of Civil Year 6000, Elohim will gather all things together under the Messiah in the Age of Life. The Age of Life will begin with the Marriage of the Lamb in the seventh millennial day as alluded to in Isaiah 30:26. The Marriage of the Lamb at the beginning of the Age of Life will fulfill the prophecy in Daniel 9:24. At this time the Messiah will reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet according to 1 Corinthians 15:25. TheAge of Life is often translated in Scripture as eternal life and is commonly known as the Millennial Kingdom.
The Age of Life or Chayei Olam חיי עולם mentioned in Daniel 12:2 is the seventh millennium of history in which the resurrected righteous are destined to live. In Psalms 133, יהוה commanded the Age of Life as a blessing. It is referred to in the Messianic Scriptures as Zōē Aiōnios ζωη αιωνιος and translated eternal life. In John 6:66-68, Peter said that the Messiah had the words of the Age of Life. In Revelation 20:1-8, John said the Messiah will reign for 1000 years which is why it is called the Millennial Kingdom. יהושע the Messiah referred to the kingdom as paradise in Luke 23:42-43. Paul mentions paradise once in 2 Corinthians 12:1-4, and John mentions it once in Revelation 2:7.
Image Above NOTE: The resurrection of the damned occurs at the end of the Millennial Kingdom on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 7001 at the end of Jubilee Year 140. The damned come against Jerusalem and are swiftly judged by the presence of Elohim who sits on a Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11). Satan, Death, Hades and whoever is not found in the Book of Life are cast into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death. The end of the Age of Life initiates The World to Come or the Eternal State of the universe.
The Creation Calendar’s epoch for the beginning of The World to Come is sunset in Jerusalem beginning Yom Shi-shi (the sixth day of the week) on Day 1 / Month 7 / Year 7001. This moment is equivalent to 15:57 [± 5 minutes] Universal Time on Thursday, September 7, 3015 C.E. on the Gregorian Calendar. At this moment the damned are resurrected according to Daniel 12:2, John 5:28-29, Acts 24:15 and Revelation 20:5. At the resurrection of damnation, a damned person’s spirit will be joined with a new body. The Messiah said to fear Him who could throw both soul and body into the Lake of Fire (Matthew 10:28). The damned will be cast into the Lake of Fire at the Second Death (Revelation 21:8).
According to Revelation 20:2, Satan is bound for 1000 years. According to Revelation 20:7-9, Satan and the resurrected damned will come against Jerusalem when fire will devour them at the end of the Millennial Kingdom. According to Revelation 20:10-15, a Great White Throne will descend from heaven and all those whose names are not found in the Book of Life will be cast into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death. According to 1 Corinthians 15:24-28, the Messiah will then deliver the kingdom to Elohim the Father so that Elohim may be in every way supreme. According to Revelation 21:2, the universe will be perfected at this time when New Jerusalem descends from heaven. The nations that are saved will walk in the light of New Jerusalem. These are those who do the commandments of Elohim as written in Revelation 22:14.
The Immortality of the Righteous
The Scriptures make it clear in Revelation 2:11 that those who overcome in the Present Age and inherit the Age of Life will not be hurt by the Second Death. According to Revelation 20:6, the resurrected righteous who inherit the Age of Life will also not be hurt by the Second Death. For יהושע the Messiah truly said that if anyone kept His sayings they would never experience death in this age – the Age of Life (John 8:51). The immortality of any child of Elohim who attains to the Age of Life is secure and they continue living for eternity in The World to Come.
According to Revelation 21:1-22:21, The World to Come (Olam Haba or the Eternal State) represents the perfection of the universe when all things are made new. The new heavens and new earth in The World to Come are different than the new heavens and new earth in the Age of Life. According to Revelation 21:10-27, New Jerusalem – a city with walls of transparent gold – will be suspended above the new earth in The World to Come. Where the Age of Life has seas according to Ezekiel 47:1-12, the eternal earth in The World to Come will not have a sea as written in Revelation 21:1.
The 7000 Year Plan of Elohim takes 2,556,699 days to complete. The completion of these days will fulfill the saying of יהושע the Messiah in Luke 22:37, “The things concerning Me have an end.”
