To accomplish what the title of this blog says I will show by way of many proofs why the true year of creation is -5470 BC, and that we are in the year 5949 AM/479 AD. This is done solely using Scripture.
This blog will also address the discrepancies found in the geneaological records of the Septuagint (LXX), Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS), Flavius Josephus, Masoretic Text (MT), and the Samaritan Pentatuech (SP). And not to worry folks I've made sure to write everything in a clear and easy to follow manner so you won't get bogged down by any unnecessary hooplah and give everyone the bird's-eye view that provides just the right amount of detail you need to know at a glance.
I will give the relevant BC/AD Years at the end of this blog series. And in addition I will include a large Jubilee chart which covers the 140 Jubilees from Adam to the End of the World; and, I will also include the Shemitah Years that correspond with said chart along with Legend Keys.
And I should add that it is not my purpose to set an exact date as Jesus Christ already told us that He nor anyone but God knows the day or hour of His Second Coming. Despite this there are many things we can know:
As you all can see there is a lot we can know and find out in comparison to what we are prevented by God from knowing. And this isn't in conflict with what we read from the story of Noah:
"Then the Lord said, “My spirit shall not abide in mortals forever, for they are flesh; their days shall be one hundred twenty years[...]
Then the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me in this generation. Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and its mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and its mate; and seven pairs of the birds of the air also, male and female, to keep their kind alive on the face of all the earth. For in seven days I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights; and every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground.” And Noah did all that the Lord had commanded him. Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the earth."
Genesis 6:3; 7:1-6 NRSV-CI
As you can clearly see God gave mankind a set period of repentance. Yet, we also see that in God's mercy He did not judge man after exactly 120 Years of Repentance had passed but, gave mankind an extra week to repent; and this God did without revealing it to Noah or anyone else.
Therefore Christ was wise in comparing His Second coming and the Final Judgment to the story of Noah: for Noah was a type of Christ and his wife the type for the Church who is the Bride of Christ Jesus; and their sons and daughters-in law are the Jews while the animals are the gentiles; the ark is the Covenant God has made with all who believe and are faithful to Him that they will not perish in the Flood which is the Final Judgment; the people outside of the ark are the unbelievers living in the old heavens and the old earth: therefore when Noah and his family offboarded the ark on the mountains of Ararat signifies the saints living in the Kingdom of God in the new heavens and the new earth.
