1. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the
host of them.
2. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
The seventh day of creation is often referred to as the seven thousand year of recorded time. 2 Peter 3:8 says.
8. 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.
Whether you believe that the end of time as you know it and the beginning of the new heaven and the new earth take place on the seventh day, (seven-thousandth year of recorded time) makes no difference in recognition of where you are in time.
It only makes a difference in those who have questions about where they are in time in relation to prophetic world events in your lifetime.
But before you disregard the importance of recognizing the times, hear what Jesus says to those who didn’t think it mattered when He was here either.
1. The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
2. He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
3. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?"
