Elder Adds Comments to 6,000 Year Plan

Yesterday, I received the following (which I did not edit) from a COG elder (no specific affiliation was mentioned, but I believe he is or was part of Church of God Fellowship-a group that had origins in GCG) named Dean Greer:

In addition to Usher’s and other chronology there is an additional conformation that we are in the end of the 6000 year time period.

Luk 13:32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third [day] I shall be perfected.

Using a day for a thousand years Psa 90:4 & II Pet 3:8 we see Christ spiritually curing mankind two days or 2000 years and then a perfect government will rule. Obviously this time period starts at Christ’s ministry or at the giving of the Holy Spirit, but since the days will be shortened it is of little significance which is chosen. This reference is also found in Luke 10 in the parable of the good Samaritan as well: The innkeeper (the church) is given two pence in verse 35, which is equilivant to two days wages. Matt 20 we find a pence is a day’s wages. Again we have been given two days to heal and then the millennium.

In Hsa 6:1¶Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. Hsa 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Again, referring to the two days and finally the millennium.

Also, note that in the first miracle of Christ John 2 there are 6 “stone” or “earthen” pots. Each pot representing a 1000 years of mankind. This miracle is done on the third day and out of those pots is drawn a small amount of wine. Just as in the first resurrection it will be but a small representation of humanity that is drawn from mankind. The number of pots and the timing of the miracle, being on the third day, obviously have to be taken separately.

These references only add witness to what we already understand.

Comments by COGwriter:

While I am not certain that all the above scriptures are clear proof, the email does add a few more verses that may be supportive of the concept of a 6,000 year plan.

More on that plan, including historical citations related to it, are in the article Did The Early Church Millenarianism?
