H. Can we trust Numeral-ology, or what about Biblical  Numeral-ology?
1.6 days the world was created; God rested the seventh day.
2.We follow a seven day week, the Sabbath being the seventh day/Christians worship the first                          day of the week (Resurrection Sunday).
3.Revelations uses the number 7.
                    Seven bowls of wrath, seven seals, seven churches, seven trumpets, and seven spirits.
4.Seven is the number of perfection; it is believed that after the thousand year reign of Christ will                       be the completion of this world. Then there will be a new heaven and earth.  Rev 21:1 “And I                          saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away                        and there was no more sea.”
5.The Tribulation period immediately preceding the thousand year reign of Christ, is called the                          70th Week of Daniel, due to Daniels prophecy of that period.
6.The Last week equals – 7 yrs. of Tribulation, which is what is described in Revelations 4-20. 
7.Where are we at; how close are we to the Tribulation.
4004yrs before Christ
2014yrs After Christ is where we are presently
That totals to 6,018 yrs.
In other words the Rapture could happen at any moment.
We can’t predict date of the Rapture!
Mark 13:32 “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which                                       are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”
8.We are to live as if he is coming today! Sharing with others the gospel and expecting his                                 imminent return! We are not to set dates, like Harold Camping had done twice in 2011,  his                             dates were wrong, Jesus didn’t come in 2011, but Harold Camping did have a heart attack or                         stroke which he didn’t anticipate that same year.  He died Dec. 15, 2013 at the age of 92.                                There have been a number of other TV evangelist that took the road of setting a date for the                            Rapture, when Christ returns to receive the dead in Christ, and those that remain living,
  into the air. I Thessalonians 4:16, 17 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with
  a shout,  with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Chrit
  shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them
  in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
9.Amen, I am looking forward to that day if the Lord permits for me experience that special
  event, but until then I am to be faithful until that day comes.
10.    Simply 4004 yrs. from the 1st Adam to the Second Adam “Jesus”, and 2,000 + years during                            the church age until the rapture, 7yrs of Tribulation - Rev. 4:1 to Rev. 19:21, then 1,000yrs                              where the saints (believers) rule with Christ, which completes 7,000yrs, then  a new heaven                           and earth which is described in Rev. 21.
11.    God is sovereign from beginning to end, no hap hazard millions of years of evolution. Man did                        not evolve from the animal kingdom, but was created in God’s image. Christ is called the                                 Alpha  and Omega, Rev. 1:8, Rev 1:11, Rev 21:6, and Revelation 22:13.

.The Infallible Word of God from Genesis to Revelation
Verifying/validating the Words of Jesus,
“Jesus the Eternal Son of God” the “Alpha and Omega”
By Wayne C. Bird
A.Is Jesus just a good person, lunatic, a liar and false prophet, or is he truly          “The Son of God”? He claimed to be God!
1.John 14:6 Jesus Said “v.6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the                       life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
2.      John 15:1-3 Jesus Said “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  v.2 Every                                branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he                               purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  v.3 Now ye are clean through the word which I                              have spoken unto you.”
           3.John 10:29_31 Jesus Said “My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;  and no man                           is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.  v.30 I and my Father are one. v.31 Then the                             Jews took up stones again to stone him.”

B.Was Jesus truly born from a virgin, the virgin Mary, can we believe that to            be true? Prophecy, Validates the Authority of the Word of God, thus the              following prophecy confirms the virgin Birth of Christ
          1.Isiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive,                           and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
          2.There are many prophecies throughout the scriptures, referencing his birth, crucifixion,                                   resurrection, and second coming.
C.Can Jesus’ genealogy be traced all the way back to Adam? Genealogy                records are recorded throughout the bible: Genesis, Exodus, Numbers,
1 & 2 Chronicles, 1&2 Kings, and  the Gospels.
1.Gen 5:5“And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.”
2.I Chron 1:1-3 “Adam, Sheth, Enosh,2 Kenan, Mahalaleel, Jered,3 Henoch, Methuselah,                                   Lamech,”
3.Luke 3:38 “Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of                               Adam, which was the son of God.”
4.I Corinthians 15:45 “And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last                             Adam (Jesus) was made a quickening spirit.”
D.Is Genesis a book that we can trust the stories to be true?
1.Matt 24:37-39 Jesus Said “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son                         of man be.38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking,                               marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not                          until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
2.Jesus always quoted the scriptures, he never criticized their validity.
3.During the temptation of Christ with the Devil, Jesus for each response quoted the                                          authoritative Scriptures. Matthew 4:3,4; 5,6,7; 8,9,10
i.And when the tempter came to him, he said, “If thou be the Son of God, command that
these stones be made bread” Christ "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but                               but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”
ii.    Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the                               temple, “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give
his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at                               any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.” Jesus said unto him,” It is written
again,  Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”
iii.     Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all
the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; “All these things will I give thee, if
  thou wilt fall down and worship me.” Then saith Jesus unto him,  "Get thee hence,             Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou                               serve.”
4.The book of Job is believed to be older than Genesis, not by content as compared to                                      content by Genesis prior to the flood, but content related to events in Job prior to or                                        during the time of  Abraham, Joseph, and Moses.

E.The world millions of years old, or was it created in 6 days; and is the earth         only 6 thousand years old?  The often quoted verse by many say that  a        day equals a thousand years:
1.II Peter 3:7-9 “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in                             store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. v8 But,                             beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years,                          and a thousand years as one day. v9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as
                    some  men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should
                    perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
2.This verse speaks of a God who is eternal and not bound by time; it also speaks of God’s                               compassion towards us not willing that any should perish. He is longsuffering, in other words                          patient.
3.The Hebrew word for day (yowm) always means a day. The critics for a six day creation only                          attack the word day in Genesis 1&2. Every other reference of a day is taken for a day, (Ken                            Ham, Answers In Genesis Quote);(Strong’s,3117; Hebrew and Greek words).

F.If the Bible is not the Authoritative Word of God, then Jesus would be a liar,        a lunatic and false prophet, he would not be even a good person, a good            person is not a liar. We would not be able to believe that he was born of a           virgin, and His genealogy would be a fake if the world was millions of years         old. Jesus is a liar if Noah’s flood never happened.
      I’ve got good news for you!  Jesus is not a liar, He is not lunatic, neither a           false prophet.
1.Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should                           repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it                                 good?”
2.God’s Word was written for a purpose, it was given to man to direct man toward God through                         His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. It took the Sacrifice of God’s only begotten Son to die on the                           cross of Calvary. The bible says “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and                         without shedding of blood is no remission.” Hebrews 9:22
3.After Adam and Eve sinned, Adam and Eve covered there nakedness with fig leaves. But God                        covered them with coats of skins (Gen 3:21).  God shed the blood of an animal, (the first
  death on the face of the earth).
4.Cain brought the fruit of the ground (Gen 4:3) Good Works
5.Abel brought the firstlings of the flock and the fat thereof (Gen 4:4) God accepted Abel’s                                 offering of faith; but God did not accept Cain’s offering of works.
6.Cain slew Able, Able was the first human to die. If the world was millions of years old, and the                         evolutionary process of survival of the fittest was true. The account of Cain and Abel would
  not be true, neither is Rom 5:12; Rom 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the
  world,  and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
7.      Chronology of the Old Testament has been accomplished by a number of Theologians. One of                       the most famous Chronologist is Ussher-1654 AD, the Chronologist I am referencing is Dr.                              Floyd Nolen Jones, his book “The Chronology of the Old Testament” ISBN13:978-0-89051-                           416-0.

8.Evolution has unconfirmed, made up millions of years; the bible has a chronological order of                           creation, births and deaths related to the lineage of Jesus Christ. Amen!

G.When Will the Lord Return? What Does the Scriptures have to Say about            the Lord’s return.
1.Only the Father knows when Christ will return. 
                   Mathew 24:36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my                      Father only.”
2.     The Disciples were told to Watch.
                   Mathew 25:13 “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of                         man cometh.”
3.But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.2 For                                   yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.3 For
  when  they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as
  travail upon a  woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4.     Are we in the last days? Yes!
