That will not do Dave, either the 1k years is real as the chain binding the devil or they are both figurative.
   hi John
Thank you for your reply St Peter tells us  categorically  that with God a day is a thousand years   the scripture also tell us that Christ will reign here on earth for a thousand years  we are also told the devil will be locked away until the end of the milleinm all these scriptures are statement of fact in my opinion

It is not good enough to play fast and loose with scripture..

  I don't think I am playing fast and loose I am only giving my opinion on how the scripture speek to me  I nearly always give scripture to support what I say if you have a better explanation please give it         

As for God being out side of time.
If he is not how an a day equal a thousand years or a thousand years equal a day if he is subject to time?

Explain please.


God is eternal no beginning and no end of days why would he be interested in time but he knows we humans have an interest  in time our time is limited the reason he tells us about the thousand year day is so we can understand his creation of man in his image which began with Noah it would take 7000 years including the millenium the first Adam is Israel the last Adam is Jesus Christ the whole of scripture  is about creation.
I have wondered  about all the stories in the OT are they forms of parables  written in the lives of the people   

Love andPeace
Dave


What you have said Dave is that God is outside of time. Something I said earlier and you denied.
God is outside of time because it is his creation.

Creation is recorded in genesis, all we know about it is recorded in genesis.
The bible does not record that there as a new creation in Noah's time.

Noah's children and there wives repopulated the world which the great flood had totally reshaped.
There was nothing miraculous about what the floor did.

Hi John
thank you for your reply as for God being outside of time have done a few googles and it seams there is very little in scripture to support it this verse from Isiah is as near as I can find

Isa 57:15  For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: ?I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.         not very convincing dose it matter it has nothing to do with our salvation as I can see       




Creation is recorded in genesis, all we know about it is recorded in genesis.
The bible does not record that there as a new creation in Noah's time.

Very true John but over what period of time dose it indicate if God can create all Life in 6 24 hour days why did it take 4000 years to create Israel and why has it taken 2000 years from the coming of our Lord to now and we still are waiting for the millennium to begin       

Noah's children and there wives repopulated the world which the great flood had totally reshaped.
There was nothing miraculous about what the floor did.

what was miraculous about the flood is God caused it to destroy what the fallen angels had done with Noah and everything that was on the Ark God began a new creation the only thing he needed to create was Man in his image everything else was on the ark a new creation

2Co_5:17  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Gal_6:15  For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation         
 

Love and Peace
Dave
