Testimony of the early Saints

Epistle of Barnabas 15:3-5 He speaks of the Sabbath at the beginning of
the Creation, "And God made in six days the works of His hands and on the
seventh day He made an end, and He rested on the seventh day, and He
sanctified it. Consider, my children what this signifies: That He made an
end in six days. The meaning of it is this: that in six thousand years the
Creator will bring all things to an end, for with Him one day is a thousand
years. He Himself testifies, saying, Behold the day of the Lord shall be as
a thousand years. Therefore children, in six days, that is in six thousand
years, all things shall be accomplished. And He rested on the seventh day:
He means this, that when His Son shall come He will destroy the season of
the wicked one, and will judge the godless, and will change the sun and the
moon and the stars, and then He will truly rest on the seventh day.

Secrets of Enoch 33:1 And I appointed the eighth day also, that the eighth
day should be the first created after My work, and that the first seven
revolve in the form of the seven thousand, and that at the beginning of the
eighth thousand there should be a time of not counting, endless, with
neither years nor months nor weeks nor days nor hours.

Elias (Eliyahu) 200 B.C. The world endures six thousand years; two
thousand before the Torah, two thousand under the Torah, and two thousand
under the Messiah.

Irenaeus 150 A.D. (was trained by Polycarp who was trained by John who
wrote the Book of Revelation. Quote is from "Against Heresies" Book 5, 28,
3: For in as many days as this world was made, in so many thousand years
shall it be concluded...This is an account of the things formerly created, as
also it is a prophecy of what is to come. For the day of the Lord is as a
thousand years; and in six days created things were completed; it is
evident therefore, that they will come to an end at the six thousandth
year.

Cyprian 250 A.D. (archchampion of orthodox Christianity against heresies)
"The Treatises Of Cyprian" Chapter 11: The first seven days in the Divine
arrangement contain seven thousand years.

Lactantius 300 A.D. (Tutor to the son of the Roman Emperor Constantine, was
a highly respected scholar. He wrote sometime before his death in 330 A.D.
the following in "The Divine Institutes" Book 7, Chapter 25: I have
already shown above that when 6000 years shall be completed this change
must take place. Chapter 26: But he (Satan) also, when the thousand years
of the Kingdom, that is, 7000 of the world, shall begin to be ended, will
be loosed afresh, and being sent forth from prison, will go forth and
assemble all the nations, which shall then be under the dominion of the
Righteous, that they may make war against the Holy City.

Methodius 300 A.D. (Banquet Of The Ten Virgins, Discourse 9, Chapter 1):
For in six days God made the heaven and earth, and finished the whole world
. . and blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, so by a figure in the
seventh month (Tishri ) when the fruits of the earth have been gathered in,
we are commanded to keep the Feast to the Lord, which signifies that, when
this world shall be terminated at the seven thousand years, when God shall
have completed the world, He shall rejoice in us. . . . Then, when the
appointed times shall have been accomplished, and God shall have ceased to
form this creation, in the seventh month, the Great Resurrection Day, it is
commanded that the Feast of our Tabernacles shall be celebrated to the
Lord.

Latimer 1552 A.D. The world was ordained to endure, as all learned men
affirm, 6000 years. Now of that number there be passed 5,552 years, so that
there is no more left but 448 years.

Rabbi Ketina: The world endures six thousand years and one thousand it
shall be laid waste, whereof it is said 'The Lord alone shall be exalted in
that day'. As out of seven years every seventh is a year of remission, that
God alone may be exalted in that day.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
