The number of complete years that have passed are cardinal numbers (6000 YEARS). The dates of the years of the events, are ordinal numbers. The year 1 (or the first year) of
Adam’s existence began at the time of his creation, in the autumn of 4026 BCE. Adding 6000 from the beginning of the year 4026 (in autumn), we reach in autumn 1974 (CE), which also corresponds to the beginning of the year 6000 (ordinal number) of the
existence of mankind.
Regarding, the end of this system of things,
Jesus Christ said: "But as these things start to occur, stand up straight and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is getting near" (Luke 21:28). By the word "deliverance", Jesus Christ implied that the Day of Jehovah, the Great Tribulation, the Ethanim,
10 (Tishri), will correspond to a release, the Jubilee, proclaimed precisely the tenth day, of the seventh month (of the biblical calendar, Ethanim): "You will then sound the horn loudly in the seventh month, on the tenth of the month; on the Day of Atonement,
you should cause the sound of the horn to be heard in all your land. You must sanctify the 50th year and proclaim liberty in the land to all its inhabitants. It will become a Jubilee for you, and each of you will return to his property and each of you should
return to his family" (Leviticus 25:9,10). The apostle Paul wrote, under inspiration, about the Law given to Moses: it has a prophetic value: "For since the Law has a shadow of the good things to come, but not the very substance of the things" (Hebrews 10:1).
"Those things are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to the Christ" (Colossians 2:17) (REALITY OF
Therefore, the Day of Jehovah, Ethanim, 10 (Tishri) (Revelation 11:19), must correspond to a Jubilee year, the beginning of a fiftieth year. A fiftieth
year of what? The most logical, given that it is the release of humanity, it can only be connected to the date of the creation of man: 4026 BCE: "For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will, but through the one who subjected it, on the
basis of hope that the creation itself will also be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God" (Romans 8:20,21). The Apostle Paul, under inspiration, shows that the end of this system of things will correspond
to a liberation of humanity from the law of sin and corruption. It will be the planetary fulfillment of the Jubilee, of the release proclaimed in Israel, at the end of the seven sabbaths of years ((7x7) 49 full years), and at the beginning of the fiftieth
year (Leviticus 25:9,10).
This is where the usefulness of calculating the date of the creation of the man Adam, 4026 BC, is revealed: The year corresponding to the great tribulation
must be a jubilee, that is to say: it must correspond to the beginning of a fiftieth year, starting in Ethanim, 10 (Tishri). What is this Jubilee Year? The important date: Autumn of the year 4026 (BCE (before common era)) the year 1, of the existence of man,
by adding 6000, the result is the date of autumn 1974, the moment of the beginning of the year 6000 (ordinal number) of the existence of humankind (Autumn 1975, being the end of the 6000 full years (cardinal number)). By adding 49 (7x7) full years, to the
autumn of 1974, we arrive in the fall of 2023 (The end of the year 6049). The Ethanim, 10 (Tishri) 2023, corresponds to the beginning of the year 6050, of the existence of the mankind on earth, according to the Bible.
Regarding the beginning of the year 6050, why do we add the 49 years, in autumn of 1974 CE, rather than in the year 1975 CE, mentioned in the table above?
To understand the "mathematics" of biblical chronology, it is necessary to distinguish between "ordinal" numbers and "cardinal" numbers. The calendar years are expressed in ordinal numbers: If a person says, "I am 20 years old." "20"
is a cardinal number, 20 full years. If the same person says: "We are in 2020". This number designating the year "2020" of the calendar, it is ordinal. This means, on January 1, 2020, 2019 full years (cardinal number), have passed since the beginning of our
As for the creation of Adam, in the beginning of mankind, the reasoning is the same. In the autumn of 4026, God created the first man (Genesis 2:7). When did the
year 1, of humanity begin (ordinal number)? The very day of Adam's creation: Autumn 4026 BCE. When Adam was 1 year old (cardinal number), after his first birthday, the second year of mankind (ordinal number) began: Autumn 4025 BCE. When did the year 6000 (ordinal
number) of humanity begin? At the beginning of the 6000th year, in the autumn of 1974 CE (4026 + 1974) (ordinal number). The autumn of 1975 corresponds to the full 6000 years of humanity (cardinal number).
The jubilee year began, at the beginning of the 50th year (ordinal number), after 49 full years (7x7 sabbaths of years) (cardinal number). Therefore, to obtain the beginning of the year 6050 (ordinal number), we must add 49 complete
years (cardinal number), to the date of autumn 1974 CE (ordinal), and we arrive at the autumn (the 10 Ethanim (Tishri)), 2023 CE (ordinal). Autumn 2023 CE, will be the beginning of the jubilee, the fiftieth year, and autumn 2024, the end of this year.
