The year 2032 marks an interesting date.
That year, you may want to look up.
A growing Internet phenomenon has gained ground and caught the attention of many. Yes, it’s another Apocalypse prediction. Thankfully, this one doesn’t take a Ph.D to figure out.
Well, it has to do with Pentecost AD32, the Holy Spirit raining down like fireballs, and 2 Peter. But first, let’s back up and start from the beginning.
The very beginning: Creation Week.
A Divine Pattern
Picture this: God creates everything in six days. All plants, animals, fish, man, woman, everything. Then on the seventh day, he rests. He calls it the Sabbath.
Fast forward a few millennia to right after Moses led the Jews through a dried-up Red Sea. He’s received the Ten Commandments, then God gives him a few more ancillary rules.
One of them involves farming. God tells Moses: farm the land six years. Then let it rest the seventh (Leviticus 25).
In other words, give the land a Sabbath.
Notice a pattern? A work-six-days-then-rest-the-seventh pattern?
So What Does This Have to Do with Mankind?
Fast forward another few millennia to after Christ’s resurrection and ascension. Peter, one of His favorite disciples, is telling others about End Times. This is what he says:
Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
– 2 Peter 3:3-7
Now this is the part to pay attention to:
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
2 Peter 3:8-9
It seems God is telling us something.
It appears there is a plan for mankind that related to God’s original 7-Day pattern; only the “days” represent 1,000 years.
This makes sense. After all, there were 1,000 years between Adam to Noah – “Day” 1 – then 1,000 years between Noah to Abraham – “Day” 2, and so forth.
Where Are We on This Plan?
No one really knows the date of Creation. Some say 4004 BC; others say as late as 3900 BC. So we don’t know the start to “Day” 1.
If you struggle with the idea of six-day Creation, check this out.
However, we do know the date of “Day” 5, the beginning of the Church Age, and that was Pentecost AD 32.
If you remember, the Church was huddled in the Upper Room after Jesus ascended, and they were sitting around praying. Then suddenly, the Holy Spirit came down like fire and indwelled them all – and has ever since.
This marked the beginning of the Church Age; a.k.a. “Day” 5.
Many years have passed since then, and we’re rapidly approaching the two-thousand year anniversary, which means two “days” have passed.
Hosea’s Little Secret
Let’s back up a few millennia to Hosea. Written prior to Christ’s first arrival, Hosea said something interesting in chapter six. Keep in mind, he was speaking to Jews:
Come, let us return to the Lord.
He has torn us to pieces
but he will heal us;
he has injured us
but he will bind up our wounds.
After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will restore us,
that we may live in his presence.
– Hosea 6:1-2
Did you see that? Hosea spoke of two days during which God would tear the Jewish people, but on the third day He would restore them.
Combined with 2 Peter’s 1,000-years-as-a-day, and the “two days” appears to reference the Church Age – the 2,000 years between Christ’s first and second appearing.
What Is the Seventh Day?
The seventh day in the 7,000 year plan – and the third day Hosea referred to – appears to be a picture of the Millennial Reign of Christ. This is the thousand-year period after the Second Coming during which Christ physically rules on Earth.
When Do Days 5 & 6 Conclude?
Generally speaking, if you add 2,000 years to AD32, you get 2032 – a mere fifteen years away.
This would put us at 2,000 years – or two “days” – from the beginning of the Church Age. Which, if I’m correct, would mean the beginning of the Millennial Reign would start around 2032. This would also mean the Seven-Year Tribulation and Second Coming would take place within the next fifteen years.
Keep in mind this is approximate. Our Gregorian calendar differs from the Jewish prophetic calendar (Jewish years are 360 days, except for the leap year, which is 390 days.) However, it pretty much matches up.
So What Are You Saying?
This is incredibly sobering and exciting. This is merely another confirmation that we are on the cusp of huge change. This thought permeates my every action and decision.
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting ready to meet the Lord. I hope you join me.
