It's a Young World After All!!

"And that, knowing the TIME, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed" (Romans 13:11).

Chronology is a branch of History. As such it is governed by the Laws which determine the validity of the results reached by the process of scientific investigation and historical inquiry. It is also a branch of Applied Mathematics, and Mathematics (unlike the fantasy of evolution) is an Exact Science. The earth is thousands . . . not billions or even millions of years old.

All of the major events in the Old Testament are dated, as a matter of fact, the first 11 chapters of Genesis are mostly Genealogy and Chronology:

Leading Bible Dates from the Old Testament

Event Bible Date B.C.
Universe created . . . Adam and Eve created --- 4046
Enoch born 622 3424
Noah born 1056 2990
Great Flood 1656 2390
Abraham born 2008 2038
Moses born 2433 1677
Exodus from Egypt 2513 1533
Conquest of Canaan begins 2553 1493
King David begins to reign at Jerusalem 3063 983
4th year of King Jehoiakim. 1st year of King Nebuchadnezzar. This year connects sacred and profane chronology. 70 year Babylonian Captivity begins. 3520 526
1st year of Cyrus king of Persia. End of Babylonian Captivity. Cyrus issues proclamation allowing Jews to return and rebuild the Temple. Countdown of 483 years unto Messiah the Prince begins. 3589 457
15th year of Tiberius Caesar. Jesus is about 30 years old. He is anointed as Messiah at His baptism in the Jordan River. He binds Satan morally by overcoming all his temptations in the wilderness!! 4071 26 A.D.

The above chart is taken for the book Chronology of the Old Testament 1913 by Rev. Martin Antsey M.A. It differs from all other chronologies in that the dates are based on Scripture alone. It might be 1 or 2 years off - not millions like the evolutionists!!

And so we have a complete count of the years from the first Adam to the Last Adam - the Lord Jesus Christ. From the beginning of time to the fullness of time. From Creation to Redemption. To find out the age of the world from this point is very simple:

Determining the age of the world

Event Bible Date
15th year of Tiberius Caesar. End of the Old Testament chronology. Jesus is about 30 years old. 4071
Subtract 30 years from this date - 30
Add the years of the Christian Era 2002
Age of the world!! 6043

According to the Bible chronology, the world was 6000 years old about 1958.

We are living in an extraordinary period of 40 years since then. . . . The most stupendous event to occur about 40 years after the death and Resurrection of Christ was the destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman armies in 70 A.D. This event is spoken of by Jesus as synonymous with the end of the world. The Jewish nation was completely destroyed by General Titus.

The 40 year period prior to this was one of wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes, false teachers etc., etc. Christianity was carried to the ends of the known world by the disciples of Jesus prior to this event. Heeding the words of Christ, all His disciples fled the doomed apostate city before the siege began, and not one perished in its overthrow:

"And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them that are in the midst of it (Jerusalem) depart out. . . " (Luke 21:20-21).

The Western or Wailing Wall is all that is left of the Roman Fortress Antonia.

The last forty years are almost a exact duplicate of the years prior to the destruction of Jerusalem:

Ancient Egypt laughs at the idea of a Stone Age. The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the 7 wonders of the world and the oldest building. Ancient man was a great builder, and was much smarter than people today. The Egyptian hieroglyphic writings could not be deciphered until the discovery of the Rosetta Stone in 1799!!

No date whatsoever is given for the birth of Jesus. Salvation was a man-sized job - not a work for the little baby Jesus that we see in the crib at Christmas time.        

Our present calendar is based on the birth of Christ. Its inventor, or contriver, was a Roman monk named Dionysius Exiguus (532 A.D.) At that time the system of dates in common use began from the era of the Emperor Diocletian (284 A.D.). Instead of making the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar the year 1 of the Christian Era, he decided to begin at the birth of Christ.

Before the end of the world, Satan will once again encompass and attack the true believers - the spiritual temple - the Beloved City, New Jerusalem. It will be the Last Great Inquisition:

"And they went up on the breath of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them" (Rev. 20:9).
