    One pattern I've noticed in the scripture is that as soon as humans were kicked out of the garden, the seven day work week started for God again.

    This may explain why Jesus said in response to sabbath proponents in His day "my father works, so I work also"

    The mirror of the first day of creation is the first age of humanity before the flood where they were still like God, but so evil that God repented of creating at all. So there's darkness and light, and that's all there really is there. Noah being the last light of hope for that generation.

    The mirror of the second day is the separation of the waters, (people are spoken of as waters in the prophets) or the forming of the nations. Israel was the last of the nations formed during that era being the "waters" representing the higher order. Much like when God separated the identical waters with the atmosphere or firmament, so did God separate Israel and the other nations with His breath.

    The mirror of the third day is the separation of the waters to bring about dry land, this happens in the story of Moses, Elijah, and at Jesus's baptism.

    The mirror of the fourth day is described in daniel as those who make others "wise" and become as the stars forever and ever - according to proverbs, one who wins souls is wise.

    The fifth day isn't really described in scripture but may be related to the sea turning to blood in revelation.

    The sixth day is related to the beast as it was in genesis, and then the appearance of the man, as it was in genesis. The beasts of sin are the nations, and the man of sin is the antichrist - a topic of intense discussion around here for sure.

    The seventh day is the millennium, the thousand year day described in Revelation.

    The rebellion after the seventh day also happened in Genesis.

    The judgment after the rebellion also happened in Genesis.

    The entering into the new world after the judgment also happened in Genesis.

    That's basically it. The elements line up, but between the third and sixth day - not much data in the scriptures - probably intentional so observers of said pattern do not lean on their own understanding.

    The gospel application of this observation is that as soon as this world was messed up, God began to create a new one for His children, because He loves us.

    not so .... Before the fall ... they worked in the garden.

    Genesis 2:15

    English Standard Version
    The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

    I was talking about God's work week, not the humans.

    It took God a week to create the heavens and the earth. Since the first one that we're living in was ruined by sin - He began creating a new one, so even now, He is working to create that new heaven and new earth.

    Your premise, MC; is quite correct. God does have a 7000 year Plan.
    But what should be of most concern to us today, is that we are on the edge of dramatic world change, as Jesus will Return soon and there is much to happen before that glorious Day.

    Hosea 6:1-3 Come: Let us return to the Lord, He has punished us 1, but He will restore us. After two days He will revive us 2, on the third day He will raise us up and we will live in His presence 3. Let us strive to know the Lord, whose coming is as sure as the sunrise. His coming will refresh us like the spring rains.

    Hosea 6:4-11 How shall the Lord deal with His people? Their loyalty is like the morning mist, that is why His prophets castigate them and His Word indicts them. Their God requires loyalty, not sacrifices, belief and trust in Him rather than offerings. But they have transgressed the Covenant and brought defilement upon themselves. The House of Israel has prostituted itself and for Judah too, a harvest of reckoning will come 4.

    Hosea 7:1-2 & 13-16 When the Lord decides to restore the fortunes of His people6, their guilt will stand revealed. He constantly watches 5, they are unaware that He has kept account of their misdeeds and faithlessness. Disaster will strike 4 them for their rebellion, even though He desires to deliver them, but their false beliefs and insincere worship indicts them. Their leaders will be killed for speaking falsely, foreigners will deride them for their foolishness. Ref:REB Abridged


    1/ Punishment by exile from the holy Land for 2730 years. Ezekiel 4:4-6, Lev. 26:18-28

    2/ 2 days = 2000 years. Psalms 90:4, 2 Peter 3:8

    3/ The 1000 year Millennial reign of Jesus. Revelation 20:6, Luke 13:32

    4/ The terrible Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath. Ezekiel 7:1-9, Hosea 8:14, Zephaniah 2:1-2, 2 Peter 3:10-11, Revelation 6:12-17

    5/ God is watching us. Job 34:21-23, Psalm 11:4, Psalm 33:13-15, Jeremiah 16:17

    6/ The time of Restoration: The period between the 2nd Exodus and the Return of Jesus. Described in Ezekiel 36, Jeremiah 31, Isaiah 61 and Joel 2:22-32

    The great gathering and judging of the Israelites:
    Ezekiel 20:34-38 By My strong hand and outstretched arm and outpoured wrath, I shall bring you out from the nations and gather you from the lands where you have been dispersed. I shall bring you into the place of judgement and there I shall confront all of you, even as I did to your forefathers in the wilderness. I shall make you pass under the rod of judgement, counting you as you pass. I shall purge out all those who revolt and rebel against Me, they will come out of the nations where they now live, but they will not set foot on the holy Land of Israel. This is the Word of the Lord God.
    Isaiah 35, Deuteronomy 30:1-10, Acts 3:19
