400 years and parallels

Intertestamental Period


400 ~ years between the close of the book of Malachi and the angel appearing to Zechariah and then to Mary.

House of Burgesses
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The House of Burgesses was the first assembly of elected representatives of English colonists in North America. The House was established by the Virginia Company, who created the body as part of an effort to encourage English craftsmen to settle in North America and to make conditions in the colony more agreeable for its current inhabitants. Its first meeting was held in Jamestown, Virginia, on July 30, 1619.

But forasmuch as men's affaires doe litle prosper where God's service is neglected, all the Burgesses tooke their places in the Quire till a prayer was said by Mr. Bucke, the Minister, that it would please God to guide and sanctifie all our proceedings to his own glory and the good of this Plantation ... The Speaker ... delivered in briefe to the whole assembly the occasions of their meeting. Which done he read unto them the commission for establishing the Counsell of Estate and the general Assembly, wherein their duties were described to the life ... And forasmuch as our intente is to establish one equall and uniforme kinde of government over all Virginia &c.

– John Pory, "A Reporte of the Manner of Proceeding in the General Assembly Convented at James City" (July 30, 1619)
King James Bible

The KJV came out in 1611.


Some thoughts.

There were 400 years of silence. We’ve had 400 years of loudness as the Bible was mass produced, disseminated, studied, debate and written about.

Is that a parallel? Are we at the end of that period?

This country was founded on prayer, belief and trust. 7 years from now this will have been 400 years ago, since the first representatives gathered to pray.

Other thought:

He spent 3 1/2 years in Egypt.

Revelation 12:1-6 (NIV)

The Woman and the Dragon

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.


His ministry 3 1/2 years.

There is often meaning in the parallels and the symbolism.

400 is on my mind.
