Biblical Time Line


Year 1 (approximately 4000 BC) :

After thousands of years (quite possibly millions), God decided to reclaim his property. He came over and turned on the lights.

Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. Genesis 1:3

But the earth was still covered with water.

	   Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst
	   of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."
	   Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which
	   were under the firmament from the waters which were above
	   the firmament; and it was so.  And God called the firmament
	   Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
	   Then God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered
	   together into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and
	   it was so.  And God called the dry land Earth, and the
	   gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw
	   that it was good.  (Genesis 1:6-10)

Year 2000 (2000 BC):

God destroyed earth, again, with water - flood, except for one family - Noah's. God promised never to destroy the earth ever again with water. (Gen 9:13-15)

Year 4000 (1 AD Approximately):

God sent His Son into the world to free man from domination of Lucifer, alias Satan, alias the devil.

Death is a direct result of sin. Lucifer is the father of sin and is very comfortable wielding the power of death. God does not take pleasure in such.

   "God  is  Light and  in  Him  is  no  darkness  at all."
   (1 John 1:5)

To defeat Lucifer and save man from death (eternal separation from God) God planted a child in a virgin's womb. This child grew up to be Jesus Christ.

To many people, this is the most ludicrous thing they've ever heard. The Muslims, in their holy book, the Koran, devoted a whole book to the issue. In the book of Mary (in the Koran), they portray Jesus as a prophet and quoted Him as saying:

   "I  am the servant of Allah.  He has given me  the gospel and
   ordained me a  prophet.  His  blessing  is  upon  me wherever
   I go, and He has commanded me to  be steadfast in prayer  and
   to give alms  to  the  poor as long  as  I shall live.  He
   has  exhorted me to honor my mother and has purged me  of
   vanity  and wickedness.  I was blessed  on the  day I  was
   born,  and  blessed I shall  be on the day when I shall be
   raised to life."  (Mary 19:30-33, The Koran)

Then they comment:

   Such  was  Jesus,  the  son  of  Mary.  That  is  the  whole
   truth, which  they  are  unwilling  to  accept.  Allah forbid
   that  He Himself  should  beget  a  son!   When  He decrees a
   thing  He need only  say:  "Be,"  and  it  is.
   (Mary 19:34-35, The  Koran)

They are right about one thing, when God wants anything to come into existence, all He has to do decree it and there it is.

In Genesis 1:3, God said: "Let there be light." And, we read, "there was light." The same thing happened when Christ was born. God decreed that a virgin would bear a son. It happened. Why is that so difficult to believe?

In the mid-1700s an Italian biologist performed the world's first documented artificial insemination, using two dogs in his house. A few years later, a Scottish doctor apparently facilitated -- in secret -- the first human artificial insemination. (The Center for the Study of Technology and Society)

Until quite recently, (except for those who have come to accept God's word at face value) most people found it unbelievable for a woman to have a child without a sexual intercourse. Today, we hear about artificial inseminations. We hear about sperm banks. We watch our television and witness how doctors remove eggs from a woman, fertilize in test tubes and then replant into a woman - may not be the original egg donor. We watch as such eggs develop into healthy little boys and girls. As we watch, we should realize that God did the same thing two-thousand years ago. Because He is God, He only said the word, and Mary become pregnant with child - Jesus Christ, who, without any doubt, is the son of God, and, therefore, God in the flesh.

   Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid,
   Mary, for you have found favor with God.
   And behold, you will conceive in your womb and
   bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.
   He will be great, and will be called the Son of
   the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the
   throne of His father David.  And He will reign over
   the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom
   there will be no end."  Then Mary said to the angel,
   "How can this be, since I do not know a man?"
   And the angel answered and said to her,
   "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the
   power of the Highest will overshadow you;
   therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born
   will be called the Son of God.
   Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also
   conceived a son in her old age; and this is
   now the sixth month for her who was called barren.
   For with God nothing will be impossible."
   (Luke 1:30-37)

It was because of this very event that God created man. Some people have said that God created man for fellowship with Himself. This is true, but it is not the major reason. God was not lonely. He had, and still has, millions of angels at His disposal - for fellowship if necessary. God, as I said earlier, could not associate with death.

Because death is evil, God created man, a being a little lower than the angels (Ps 8:5; Heb 2:7&9), yet, designed to live forever.

God accomplished that by "breathing into man" (Gen 2:7).

Anything that is of God lasts forever.

This "being" - man, was also weak-minded by design. The fall of Adam and Eve (Gen 3) was foreseen by God. Lucifer thought he won a battle since man now had sinned and, therefore, vulnerable to death - enslavement in the Satan's kingdom.

God, somehow, had to get into Satan's kingdom and the only way to do it is as a man because God cannot die. Death is Lucifer's enslavement tool.

God's son, Jesus Christ, came for two reason:

1. He had to experience death in order to subdue Satan in his kingdom of darkness.

Since, therefore, [these His] children share in flesh and blood [in the physical nature of human beings], He [Himself] in a similar manner partook of the same [nature], that by [going through] death He might bring to nought and of no effect him who had the power of death - that is, the devil ... (Hebrews 2:14, The Amplified Bible)

2. To save mankind from sin and the devil.

   You  were  dead  in  sins,  and  your  sinful  desires  were
   not yet cut  away.   Then  He  (God)  gave  you  a  share  in
   the very life of  Christ,  for  He  forgave  all  your  sins
   and blotted  out the charges  proved  against you,  the  list
   of  His  commandments  which you  had  not  obeyed.  He  took
   this  list  of  sins  and  destroyed it  by  nailing  it  to
   Christ's  cross.   In  this  way  God  took away  Satan's
   power  to accuse  you  of  sin,  and  God openly displayed
   to  the  whole   world  Christ's  triumph  at  the cross
   where  your  sins  were  all  taken  away."
   (Colossians  2:13- 15, The  Living  Bible)

Referring to the above passage, I would like to say that translation into 'modern language' has resulted in loss of meaning. The more modern we make the Bible, the more we loss the sacred meaning of what God is trying to convey to us. Below is the same passage in New King James version - a translation closer to the original Authorized king James version.

   And  you,  being  dead  in  your  trespasses  and  the
   uncircumcision of  your  flesh,  He  has  made  alive
   together  with Him,  having forgiven  you  all  trespasses,
   having  wiped  out  the handwriting of  requirements  that
   was  a gainst  us,  which  was  contrary  to us.   And  He
   has  taken  it out  of  the  way,  having  nailed  it to  the
   cross.   Having disarmed  principalities  and  powers,  He
   made  a  public  spectacle of  them,  triumphing  over  them
   in  it.  (Colossians  2:13 -15 ,KJV)

The one thing that stands out in this translation that is not easily distinguishable in the "modern" version is that Christ 'disarmed principalities and powers'. This complements what Hebrews 2:14 says:

   'for  only  as a  human  being  could  He die  and  in  dying
   break the  power of  the  devil  who  had  the power  of
   death.' (Living Bible)

Why is this important?

Christ did not just take away Satan's power to accuse mankind, He also took away his authority to make man remain in sin. Christ wrested (took by force) the power of death from Satan. He alone could have done it. Once He hinted:

   "No  one  can  enter  a  strong  man's  house  and  plunder
   his goods, unless  he  first  binds  the   strong  man,  and
   he will plunder  his house."  (Mark  3:27)

Satan's kingdom is still fighting to divert people's attention from Him who alone can give life to God's wonderful creations - man. This is an on - going fight, a real dark side trying to draw man into a camp full of things that satisfy the flesh and desensitize the conscience. And so God's word tells us:

   For  we  do  not  wrestle  against  flesh  and  blood, but
   against principalities,  against  powers,  against  the
   rulers  of darkness of  this  age,  against  spiritual  hosts
   of  wickedness in  the heavenly  places.  (Ephesians 6:12)

Yes, Jesus Christ came to free us this terrible enemy. His death on the cross is the only payment acceptable to God for the sin of man. If we understood what took place during the three days He was dead, we would never give in to the devil's tricks. It was then that He descended into hell, Satan's domain, and subdued him. It was only after His resurrection that He could make this claim:

   I  Am  the  First  and  the  Last,  the  Living  One  who
   died,  who is  now  alive  forevermore,  who  has  the  keys
   of  hell  and death.  (Revelation  1:17-18, The Living  Bible)

In a nutshell, Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Judge of man. Right now He is playing the role of YOUR SAVIOR. As long as you breath, you have a chance of eternal life with God. The moment you die, you are lost forever if you never accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior.

Year 6000 (2000 AD):

This period will fall on the year 2000. If you have observed what I have observed from Year 1, you will notice that God seems to embark on major projects every 2000 years. This is of course "my thinking". I feel that our Lord and savior Jesus Christ is due back on earth very soon. It might even be before the year 2000. No one knows exactly when that will be. Jesus said that even the angels do not know when that will be. Only God knows.

         "But  of  that  day  and  hour  no  one  knows,  no,  not
         even the angels  of  heaven,  but  my   Father  only."
         (Matthew  24:36)

What Jesus did, He did for the entire human race. The price has been paid for my sins and yours. Jesus Christ is the One and ONLY Filter through which God can see you in order to honor you, protect you, and reserve your peaceful place in eternity. There is only one requirement:


You must ask Jesus to come into your life and take over its management.

Like the TV commercial says: "Get met, it pays".

I implore you right now:

Ask Jesus into your life, it's your only chance to escape Lucifer who has vowed to destroy God's beautiful creation - YOU.
