I checked this book out and then tried to find out more about the author and IT'S YOU!!!! How exciting!!
Did you know your book is available at TARGET? (See, I did check you out)!. I also read page 186. It is easy to see you were an ex-JW.
Obviously, I have my own timeline so 6000 years do not run out per my timeline until 2131 AD, give or take a year. But one thing I liked was that you didn't really end the 6ch Creative Day until Adam was 30. I too agree that 30 is likely the age Eve was created. I factor that into my chronology as well.
Your book is well written and easy to follow. I can tell the witness influence though. One stunning example is thinking the woman in Revelation is God's woman. You don't deal with Satan attacking this woman and her having to flee to the "wilderness" to any great extent. To me, this proves this cannot be a heavenly woman but an earthly woman: "Rejoice you heavens, but woe to the earth." That woman represents the earth and is connected to it. If this woman was truly God's woman, the faithful angels, not only would they not be afraid of Satan, having just conquered him, but also Satan would have no access to them since they are in heaven and Satan has been kicked out of heaven. You also follow the WTS in presuming this child born is not the messiah himself but represents God's kingdom and his authority to bring forth the one who would bruise Satan in the head. See? I did read some of your book. But at least you represent the child as the messiah and not just the kingdom as the WTS does. That is, Christ comes out of God's heavenly woman. But this is a super generalization that ignores the timing here of when Satan is kicked out of heaven, etc. So it was interesting to see how you handled this.
As far as the chronology goes, since you are an author, you clearly know how to research. What I found was that Xerxes faked his death and claimed to be Artaxerxes with the help of Themistocles. If you look up Plutarch, you can see there was a huge controversy even in his time over just whom Themistocles fled to. But since Themistocles is part of the conspiracy, obviously the sources where he claims he went to Artaxerxes only would be based on his statement. But the actual interview with XERXES is historically preserved by Plutarch, a complete contradiction to the current history. But the discrepancy is explained when you realize they were the same king but claiming otherwise. Once you start here, then the Persian and Greek Chronology implodes on itself. What my research has basically done is confirmed what Martin Anstey in his "Romance of Bible Chronology" always surmised, which is that there is 82 years too many during the Persian Period. I confirmed where those 82 years are and why they were added.
If that is the case, then he concept of the millennium having begun already can be adjusted.
THE MOST INTERESTING REFLECTION, though, is that I just realized that 1975 was the date JWs identified as 6000 years of man's history. The scandal over 1975 not bringing Armageddon has distracted from the fact that the WTS still has that timeline and so must be wondering while the millennium hasn't begun! But they don't even TOUCH that now! They have no mention of any 6000 years of man's existence. Thus their theory about the millennium being the 7th 1000 years of the 7th Crative Day is in LIMBO!!! I just realized they have no answer for how that is suposed to work out now!!
I see you have adjusted the concept a bit to extend to 2002 in relation to Satan's rule. But even so, it must not make any sense in 2008, now some 33 years after the fact, that the millennium theory in connection with the 6000-year theory now doesn't work. Especially since they maintain the same timeline! I hadn't given it much concern since I had my own corrected timeline. I didn't think about what they must be thinking about the 6000-year concept.
Just for the record, you do sort of focus that when the 7th Creative Day is cover, God makes all things new after the 49,000 years. I agree with that. But after the 1000 years, you know Satan is let out for a while and then there is Judgment Day, when all the dead come back. I believe these two events do happen within the 7th Crative Day so that by the time it ends, all things are as they should be before and thus God saying he is "making all things new" is a reference to the beginning of the 8th Creative Day. Thus, as I have published before, based on my chronology research, though 6000 years after Eve's Creation, when Adam was 30, might end in 2131 AD, I allow 40 years for Satan's last test and 80 years for Judgment Day, on this side of the 8th Creative Day. Thus the millennium is not the very last 1000 years, but makes room for 120 years after the millennium for Satan's last test and Judmgent Day. That moves the 2131 AD date that marks the last 1000 years up to 2011 AD. Still a future date, but a reasonable date to see the millennium based upon all the presumptions. I allow about 2 years for the fall of Babylon and Armageddon leading up to the millennium, so we're down to the wire as far as my presumptive chronology goes. So I have no disappointed 6000-year issues as far as the millennium already beginning, or reinterpreting the milllennium other than as presented directly in scripture. We'll see what happens when 2011 rolls around, but for now, everything works out, and I have absolute confidence in the timeline adjustments, directly confirmed, by the VAT4956.
Thanks for drawing attention to your book. Obviously, you have a passion for chronology and seeing the Bible fulfilled.
