Roy’s Blog: “Maranatha”

(Maranatha: Expression meaning “our Lord comes” was used as a greeting in the early church.)

2 Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day.”

This verse from the Apostle Peter is a fascinating verse. It is my belief that the verse is tied prophetically to the week of creation found in Genesis. The seven days of creation are a type of the seven thousand years assigned by God for mankind: six thousand years of human history climaxed by the one thousand year reign of Christ.

I believe we are in the transition from day six to day seven. The “seventh day”, or that last thousand years of history, corresponds to God’s resting on the seventh day and is a picture of the Lord’s one thousand year Kingdom.

That makes our day a thrilling time. Out of all generations of man, He chose our generation (you and I) for this day, this hour.
