Let’s continue counting the Days of God’s great Week of prophetic time. The timeline distinguishes the “last days” of the great Week as the last three days of the week.
Day Five begins with Jesus’ ministry and features the establishment of the Church; Day Six continues with the Church being built upon the foundation of Christ and His disciples (the time we are in now); and Day Seven features the millennial reign of Christ (1,000-years).
The first 6 Days cover the “work of mankind,” followed by a Sabbath rest on the 7th Day as Christ rules over the earth. The 6 Days are known as “this age.”
Our calendar is based on the birth of Christ, the exact year of which is open to debate. Most scholars put it sometime between 4 BC and 1 BC. Luke 3:23 states that Jesus began His ministry at the age of 30 (26 AD – 30 AD). The rule of the great Days means we add 2,000 years from the start of His ministry, which brings us to this decade (2020-2029).
We don’t need the exact date. Just like the expectant mother doesn’t need the exact birth date or of her child. For now it’s sufficient to mark the decade, and hence, the generation that will see Christ’s return.
