Genesis 1:1-31

Creation.

4046

1

Genesis 1:26

In this verse God the Father tells us why He created man.  There are two words which explain the result He wants mankind to achieve; “likeness” and “image.”  The word likeness is Strong’s #1823 and refers to man’s outline or shape, which is a copy of God’s shape.  The word image is Strong’s #6754, and the following explanation is from The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament, “God’s image obviously does not consist in man’s body which was formed from earthly matter, but in his spiritual, intellectual and moral likeness to God from whom his animating breath came.”  Matt 5:48 Therefore you shall be (become) perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”  John 15:1-2 I am the true vine and My Father is the vine dresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

 

 

Genesis 1:17-18

God sets the sun, the moon, and the stars in their orbits at creation and they continue in those orbits to the present time.  He set them in their correct orbits to reflect the fourth day of creation: March 23, 4046 BC. This was the beginning of a known cycle of these three orbs of thirteen, nineteen year cycles that total 247 years.  Only one of the thirteen cycles begins on the first day of the week which reflects the creation week in Genesis 1.  Of course this is the cycle that must start the calendar that God uses throughout the bible.  As this timeline shows, it documents the biblical events by using this calendar.  An example is the narrative of the Noachian flood where Noah gives an accounting of the flood year as having 385 days.  This is the maximum length of a Hebrew calendar year and is the key to establishing the method of keeping track of time.  Reference the article “Noah’s Flood and God’s Calendar.”  This timeline is the factual representation of the Bible from creation to the present and is what establishes 4046 BC as the starting year of creation.  For a more complete understanding, view the video on “The Calendar Generator”.

 

 

Genesis 5:3-32

1 Peter 3:20

This is the minimum passage of time from Adam to Noah.  In order to meet the calendar year having 385 days, as recorded in the flood record, 5 years have to be added to the total of years before the flood :1656 + 5 =1661, the year of the Flood, or  2386 BC

Total Years before the Flood

1656

 

 

 

This table shows only the impossibility of using 1656 as the flood year. It does not show the actual births and death of the patriarchs. The bible does not reveal these dates with the exception of Noah and his son Shem. Those dates are revealed through the flood account. 

The chart below is based on the raw data taken from Genesis 5:1-32.  The times of the births are given in year numbers for each man. We only have the time that the father lived until the birth of his son. This anomaly can be seen in the birth year of Seth. Adam was created in the 6th day of 4046 BC, or 1 AM. 

For him to have lived 130 years before the birth of Seth, Seth would have had to have been born in 3916 BC, or 131 AM, this places Seth’s death year at 3004 BC or 1043 AM.  When using the raw data of Gen. 5, but including their death dates, it is found that Methuselah would have lived 1 year after the assumed date of the flood 1656 AM or 2391 BC taken from the previous chart. This proves mathematically that the compiling of the years as shown in Gen. 5 to the flood cannot be used to determine the year of the flood as shown in the first chart, which is universally used by present day chronologists.

**The son of Nahor was Terah, Abraham’s father, who died at age 205.  At Terah’s death, Abraham was 75 meaning that Terah was 130 years old at Abraham's birth.  Adding that to 222 gives a total of 352 years from the flood to Abraham's birth. 352 + 75 (his age) = 427 years, from the flood until he left for the promised land.  This chart is from page 26 of the article “A Proof Study Dating Biblical Sabbaths and Holy Days”
