How old is the earth?

We have seen that God created the earth in 7 days and that He began to count earth time from Day 1 of creation. Age of the earth can therefore be deduced from the scriptures.  Some time ago, I did some calculations and came up with the following  data.

Methodology for calculating the age of the earth

a. I calculated the age of  humans whose life spans were recorded in scripture

b. This is because the age of earth parallels that of  the first humans created on the earth

c.  Adam to Jacob’s entry to Egypt = 2238 years.

d. Jacob’s year of entry to the year of the  Exodus =2238 + 430 = 2668

e. Wandered in the wilderness = 40 + 2668 = 2708

f. Joshua = 30 years + 2708 = 2738

g. Period of the judges = 450 years + 2738 = 3188  (Acts 13: 18 – 22)

i. King  Saul to the  destruction of Jerusalem/exile into Babylon= 3188 + 514 years = 3702

h. Babylon to birth of Christ = 586 years + 3702 = 4288

i. Birth of  Christ to us = 4288 + 2010=

The approximate age of earth is 6298. Hip Hip hoorah!!

On 28th March 2015 at 1.12 am, Archangel Michael asked me, “when did the earth enter its sixth millennium?”

The answer is:   “Earth entered its 6th millennium in 1712″

  • if 6298 – 6000 = 298
  • then 2010 – .298 = 1712 and
  • 4288 (birth of Christ) + 1712 = 6000
  • OR 6000 – 4288 birth of   Christ = 1712
  • the millennium ends in 2712
  • 2015 is the 303rd year of this millennium = third day of creation – doubled = planting seeds, productivity, growth, abundance, provision of food for the next generation, good nutrition. The YEAR OF THE HARVEST AND ABUNDANCE.

Events in history – Adam may have rebelled in the 60th years of life as suggested by outbreaks in human history in the 60s:

  • Historical Events  in 1712
    • Swedish calendar moved from 29 to 20 days of February
    • Apr 06   On this day in history slave revolt in New York – April is new season and 6=man
    • Apr 06   In the year 1712 slave revolt in NY 
    • Apr 07   Slave revolt (NYC) on this day in history. 
    • July 20th – the Riot Act is passed in Great Britain

The Geology of Israel Within the Biblical Creation-Flood Framework of History: 1. The Pre-Flood Rocks – explains that  “…the intrusive igneous rocks produced within those few months  (of the flood) would have “aged” radioisotopically by tens of millions of years due to the accelerating nuclear decay, ..”
