The Apocalypse Revealed 7

During the lifetime of Adam all the patriarchs up to the time of Noah were born. Noah was 14 years old when Adam died. Once Adam had died and God’s period of “rest” was over, the Almighty began His salvage operation. It began with the olive-branch brought back by the dove after the Flood (Genesis 8:11), and will end with the Great White Throne Judgement (Revelation 20:11-18). The earth is and will be renewed over seven periods of time, each characterised as seven months – the final period being a grand jubilee (Deuteronomy 15:1). During six periods of seven months (mentioned in Revelation as 42 months or 1260 days) , God’s judgement on the earth takes the form of the disastrous consequences of the Fall on the natural order.
