Hi rstrats
Thanks for the wake up call of course our Lord answers this question when he says

     40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth       

There is a spiritual side to this e know that with the Lord a day is a thousand years fom Noah to the time of Christ was 4000 years 4 days on day 4 Christ ascended into heaven and has been there for days 5 and 6 so thats 3 days and he will rise on the 7th day to take up his rightful place as king of kings and will reign for a thousand years.
The physical is a mirror image of spiritual.

Love and Peace
Dave

OK, just so it's understood that that's an issue for a different topic.

Hi rstrats
Ok figures of speech tricky subject I get the feeling sometimes that some people say things are a figure of speach when a scripture dose not agree with their theology so they try to change the scripture.
Its the same with the saying out of context can mean they don't accept what the scriptures say and try to change it.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi rstrats
Thank you for your post I have been told on here that the following is a figure of speach

     2Pe 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 one day       

I believe it means exactly what it says how dose one decide what is a figure of speach would God waste our time on figures of speach

Love and Peace
Dave

How days, months and years were measured in Biblical times differ to how they are now.  So with this in mind a thousand years as you understand that now to be, is different.

Are you a believer in a 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection?

What relevance is this to the statement I made?

Dave repeatedly across many threads, speaks of that Scripture very literally.  I am stating that time and days in a year in Biblical times was counted differently.

No relevance at all.  Just as your comment has no relevance to this topic.  However, you entered this topic I assume because the title somehow piqued your interest and since you're here I thought I'd ask the question which is directly relevant to this topic.
