Earth Ages

There are three basic earth ages, while the third is basically divided into two parts. The start of these earth ages was at a time far in the eons of the past, millions of years ago.

First Earth Age:

The first earth age was the time spoken of in Genesis 1:1, II Peter 3, and Jeremiah 4:18 to the end of the chapter.

Mankind did not exist in the flesh, however the animal world did. It was far more expanded then what is common in this earth age. An example of this is in the elephant world, where there are three known species existing today, living in the world. In the first earth age, there were over thirty types that have been dug up.

All souls were created in the first earth age, and lived in what we call their soul bodies. The reason that we find no fossils today dating back beyond 6,000 to 10,000 years is because man did not exist in the flesh body. All souls were in existence then.

It was also in the first earth age that Satan, the most beautiful of all angels allowed his pride to overcome him, and the fall, of not only Satan came, but one third of all souls that existed then also fell.

This brought about the Fall of Satan, and the end of the first age. It is because of that fall, or "toho va boho" the destruction, where by all animals and living forms on earth came to an end.

8414 tohuw (to'-hoo); from an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), i.e. desert; figuratively, a worthless thing; adverbially, in vain: KJV-- confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) naught, vain, vanity, waste, wilderness.

922 bohuw (bo'-hoo); from an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, i.e. (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin: KJV-- emptiness, void.

Second Earth Age:

The second earth age started with Genesis 1:2, and God's plan of reconstruction of this earth, and all that was to live on it, began. This is the age of the flesh, whereby all souls were required to be born of woman, from the womb, [of water, within the womb] And be tried and tested, and for this God gave each soul what is called "free-will". They had the right to chose God, or Satan.

However there are some that were special in this earth age, for they are the ones that took a stand against Satan's rebellion against God, and thus they were judged and set aside in that first earth age, and those people are what we call the "elect".

The purpose of God sending a Son to be born of woman, was established before the start of this flesh age, for God laid his plan out in the constellations in the heavens, and that is what the signs of the ages are.

Now it is important to know that the races were created separate and prior to Adamic, or "ruddy complected man", and it was through the Adamic race that God selected to send His Son, through the womb of woman, Mary. This is why it was forbidden of mixed marriages in the beginning, for Satan had polluted mankind with his sexual union with Eve, and from that union came Cain, and his offspring, the Kenites.

So now lets look at the time frames of this second earth age:

First period, from Adam to the flood, which was about 1,800 years, and ended with the flood of Noah's day. It covers the time span of ten generations.

Second period, from Noah's flood, to the Abraham covenant. This was approximately 400 years,

Third period, from the Abrahamic covenant to the time Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt. This period included the birth of Isaac, and his son Jacob, who's name was changed to Israel by God. Israel had twelve sons, and those twelve sons bred from twelve families into a nation of twelve tribes.

Forth period, from Moses leading the children out of Israel to entering into promised land. Time; forty years. This was the time in the wilderness, when God gave the laws, statutes and ordinances.

Fifth period, The time of the judges to the monarchy, which was about 450 years. During this time Israel was ruled by Judges, that God appointed.

Sixth period, The time of the Monarchy to the split of the kingdom. This time was about 120 years. During this time, Israel was ruled by King Saul [the Benjaminite] for 40 years. Then King David for another 40 years, and King Solomon for another 40 years. When King Solomon died, the kingdom was split into two houses, also called nations. The names of these two nations were; "the House of Israel" and "the House of Judah".

Seventh period is "split"

The rule of the House of Israel was about 200 years, to the time of captivity by Assyria.

The rule of the House of Judah was about 320 years, when Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon brought Judah into captivity.

The House of Israel comprised the ten tribes to the north, all except Judah and Benjamin, with the tribe of Levi the priests for all the tribes. This House of Israel was captured and scattered in 722 B.C., and are known today as the Christian nations. The Tribes became so scattered that they lost the identity to themselves, and became known only as Caucasians.

The House of Judah comprised the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, with part of the tribe of Levi. These people later became know as the Jews, because they mixed with the Kenites, and allowed themselves to be taken over by these Kenites, while in captivity in Babylon. God deals with Judah and Israel separately in scriptures.

Eighth period, Israel never comes back as a nation until the Millennium age.

Judah spends 70 years in captivity, in which time the Levitical priesthood is completely taken over by Kenites, and mixes into the house of Judah so that they are accepted as children of God and Israel, when in fact they are of the Satan, and will ultimately kill Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God.

Ninth period, This period was about 605 years. Close of the Old Testament, to the Birth of Christ. This period starts with the Jews coming out of Babylon, released by Cyrus the Great, and led by Ezra and Nehemiah back to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple, and city of Jerusalem. It was at this time that these prophets saw the pollution taking place with the scripture, because the scribes were nothing but Kenites [II Chronicles 2:55]. Thus they created a fence around the scriptures, called the Massorah, where by the writings could not be changed.

It was during the Ninth period that the Grecian [Hellenists] came to power, and the world was split into four parts, called the king of the north, south, east and west. The King of the north was Salucid Leggit, who ruled from Syria to India. The king of the South was Ptolomy Soto, who ruled Egypt, all Africa and the Arabian area of today. The king of the east was Lysandrius, who later died and the kingdom shattered into small nations in what we call Eastern Europe today, and the king of the west was Casandrus, who also died without a legacy, and this kingdom was later built into the Roman empire.

Tenth period, will be about 2000 years, up to the time of the coming of the Antichrist. This is the Christian period where Salvation is open to all mankind of every race, who will believe on Jesus Christ and repent of their sins in Jesus name.

Eleventh period, This is the time of the Antichrist, and has been shortened to five months, per Revelation 9:5, 10 All the world will give themselves over to Antichrist, except God's elect. It is a closed period, where you will either be sealed with the Word of God, or you will not. It is absolute. The elect will be sealed, all others will not.

Third Earth Age:

The start of mankind out of the flesh body, as Paul explains in I Corinthians 15:50-54.

Twelfth period, The Millennium age, 1,000 years, ending with Satan released and many falling back into worshipping him. This age is man in their soul bodies, for all flesh will be disposed of in this Millennium age. It is a time of discipline, and learning, and all men will be judged at the end of this period, By their works only.

The elect will be the joint teachers, priests and judges with Jesus Christ during this period, and they only will have received the rewards of their incorruptible [liable to die, flesh bodies], in immortal [eternal] bodies.

Thirteenth period, Judgment, the Great white throne of judgment, where all men are judged by their works, the saved Elect will not be judged here but receive rewards, the evil, and sinful souls with go with Satan into the lake of fire and become ashes, non existent. Even the memory of those will be taken from the minds of the souls with eternal life.

Fourteenth period, Eternal kingdom. New heaven and a new earth, the new Jerusalem comes down from heaven, with its streets paved with gold, and all rewards will be eternal.

this period never ends.
