6000 Years from the Fall
6000 Years From Creation Ended in 1996
But has the 6000 Years Ended?
Consider a couple of quotes from Great Controversy, "For six thousand years, Satan's work of rebellion has 'made the earth to tremble'. He has 'made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof.' For six thousand years his prison-house has received (Elohim's) people." GC 659
"Satan's work of ruin is forever ended. For six thousand years he has wrought his will, filling the earth with woe, and causing grief throughout the universe." GC p. 673
Satan has not wrought his will before the fall of Adam and Eve. When man fell to Satan's temptation to eat the forbidden fruit, Satan became the ruler of this world. Before this Adam was the ruler of this world, which was given to him by YAHUWAH.
Micah prophesied of the future, "And Thou, O Tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto Thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the Kingdom shall come to the daughter of Zion." Micah 4:8
There are 120 Jubilees in 6000 years. But the 6000 years did not begin at Creation; but rather at the fall of man, when Satan's work of ruin started.
The Jubilee statute did not start until after the fall, for this reason. Adam did not till the ground in the Garden of Eden, as the Scripture reads, "Therefore YAHU-WAH Elohim sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken." Genesis 3:23. In another place He said, "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground." Genesis 1:19. Obviously Adam had not done this prior to his departure from the garden.
If the ground was not tilled in the garden of Eden, then there would be no reason for the statute of Leviticus 25:3,4 which commands, "Six years thou shalt sow thy field, ... But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for YAHUWAH."
If the ground was not tilled until after the fall, then there was no reason to let it rest, is the obvious conclusion.
Therefore reasoning that the Jubilee statute and the 6000 years could not have started until after the fall, instead of at Creation, yet the genealogy records in Genesis starts from Creation. This might explain partly why we are still here.
Concerning the Passover and Wave-sheaf, "These types were fulfilled, not only as to the event, but as to the time. ... In like manner, the types which relate to the second advent must be fulfilled at the time pointed out in the symbolic service." GC p. 400. Even the Jubilee?
Just a piece from Early Writings for you, "Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest. I saw the pious slave rise in triumph and victory and shake off the chains that bound him, while his wicked master was in confusion and knew not what to do; for the wicked could not understand the words of the voice of (YAHUWAH). Soon appeared the great white cloud. it looked more lovely than ever before. On it sat the Son of man." EW p.35
