A Significant Series of Five Archetypes

An archetype is a recurrent symbol or motif in literature, commonly referred to as a type.

Our Creator loves types, and He uses them all the time in His Word. The types mentioned below are ones I’ve identified during my own study. Be cautious, be a Berean, and search the Scriptures daily.

Many Christians sense that the time of the Day of the Lord and the “catching away” is very close. I believe the Bible teaches that we cannot know the day or hour. However, we can know the approximate “season” or time-frame of this major event. Hebrews 10:25 tells us to gather together more frequently when we see the day approaching. What day? This Day! Yes, we can know when that day is near. It is almost here now!

Graphics of the 7,000 years of man representing the creation week are familiar to me and caused me to consider the topic more carefully. A few years ago I identified five types in Genesis chapter one that I want to share with you.

Type One

Days five and six of creation. Genesis 1:20-31

  • These two days are a type of the fifth and sixth millenniums.

Type Two

On day five God began creating life. (v. 20)  .

  • This is a type of Christ beginning his ministry and creating His church at the beginning of the fifth millennium. See John chapters 6 and 14, and other verses throughout John, II Corinthians 4:11 and I John 1:1, 2.

Type Three

The creation of life was completed on day six (v. 24 and 31)

  • The completion on day six is a type of the close of the Age of Grace and the close of the church’s ministry.

Type Four

The command given to life on days five and six was be fruitful and multiply. Genesis 1:22, 28

  • This command is a type of the command given to the church and believers. Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15. This was a command to tell others about Christ and bring about new Christians. In other words, be fruitful and multiply, or go out and reproduce yourself. John 15:16

Type Five

God rested on the seventh day. Genesis 2:1-3

  • This is a type of the millennial reign of Christ. Following the Tribulation period, God’s creation is renewed, and Satan is imprisoned. As a result, all of creation will be at rest for 1000 years. Revelation 20:3, 4

Christ was probably born between 6 and 4 B.C. According to that article, Jesus was about 32 when He started His ministry, so that would have been at some point between 26 and 28 AD. Assuming these types to be true, add 2,000 years, and it will make the end of the sixth millennium between 2026 and 2028. Subtract seven years for the Great Tribulation and you have the rapture occurring between 2019 and 2021. This would put the event near the end of or soon after President Trump’s term.

Considering this, what are your priorities in life? I’ve rearranged mine, come join me.

Let’s arbitrarily pick June 30, 2020 for the rapture, which is near the middle of that span of time. There isn’t much time left to do the important things that will outlast this temporary existence.

A countdown timer to June 30, 2020 is supposed to appear here. If it doesn’t, blame it on something in Chrome. IE and Firefox show it. It doesn’t appear in some of my Chrome installations. Here’s a count down page.
