Add together the ages when each child was born:
Genesis 7: 11, 13 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep brokenup, and the windows of heaven were opened . . . . In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark.
Add 1056 600 = 1656 Years
Creation week (Adam created) to when Noah and his family entered the ark = 1656 years.
(Note: Noah. . At Age 500 years, Shem, Ham and Japheth are born. .Noah lived 950 Years)
Man's Wickedness of Heart So Great in Just 1656 Years
Genesis 6: 5-7 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
God's Everlasting Covenant with Noah Applies to All Mankind and All Living Creatures
Genesis 9: 8-17 And God spoke unto Noah, and to his sons with him saying, And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; and with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, this is the token of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations. I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud.
And I will remember my covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, this is the token of the covenant, which I have established between Me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
A Time For Thanksgiving
Thank you dear Father for the covenant made with Noah on behalf of all mankind and all living creatures. Thank you dear Father for allowing each of us to be born. Thank you for sacrificing your Son to reconcile mankind unto you. Thank you Jesus for willingly taking on suffering and for dying on a cross for the sins of mankind against God. Thank you for the resurrection of Jesus Christ so that all who repent and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior will spend eternity in your presence. Thank you for the right to pray in the Name of Jesus. Amen
The timeline is very interesting and your blog shows alot of work you have devoted in putting this together.
Before this, I have only thought about the timeline of earth as far as thinking there was about 2000 years from creation to the flood, 2000 years from the flood to the time of Christ, and since then about 2010 years.
So, something BIG is about to happen and will happen literally just like everything else has happened when the fullness of the time comes.
