400 years of loudness

I continue to be amazed by the beauty, color and symmetry or our God.

Or course I don't begin to get this picture and will be completely blown away when I see Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9, Ephesians 3:14-ff.

Some symmetry examples:

Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac on Mount Moriah and the crucifixion of Jesus on the same spot.

Jonah 3 days in a whale. Jesus 3 days in the grave.

For those of us that are young earth creationists / literal interpreters of Genesis 1 and 2 - The 6 days of creation and the one day of rest line up well with a 6,000 year old and a 1,000 year millennial reign were we can all rest under the Lordship of Jesus.

I am sure you have your favorite symmetry stories from God's work in the world.

This got me to thinking about some of these that have not yet been paralleled. Maybe they will never be repeated. Maybe they have and we missed it. Maybe there coming and maybe there here we just can't see it. Don't know.

My point:

The 400 years of silence before the first advent. Will this be repeated? How about the inverse. 400 years of loudness?

Just like the 3,000 killed at Mount Sinai when the 10 commandments were offered and they were off worshiping a statue. This paralleled but in reverse with the 3,000 saved at Pentecost (the birthday of the church) (Acts 2).

What if in 1611 when the work of preparing the King James commissioned version of the Bible for the everyday man began the 400 years of loudness when God's word was poured out on all people. Now in a vast number of languages and dialects.

1611 + 400 = 2011.

I am certainly not saying the 400 years of silence was exactly 400 years. I don't know. Maybe it was.

Perhaps this is yet another indication that we are close - very very close.

  1. Interesting idea! There's been 400 years of the Bible being mass produced and sent around the world.

  2. thanks! that gets the "ole bean" to thinking... the "Word" said He'd come back--i think He will come shut up all the other voices and the world will not only hear Him but see Him too. btw-#4 is the number of the world-maybe "the world's number is up"? come quickly Lord Jesus. enjoy the posts very much.
