Questions & Answers

QUESTION: “In the article on ‘The God Family’ (June 1974 GN), the author mentions God’s ‘7,000-year plan for earth.’ Would you please explain what he means by this?” ANSWER: Up until now God has allowed approximately 6,000 years for humanity to write the painful lesson of “doing its own thing” – going its own way without the revealed knowledge of His Creator. A study of biblical chronology indicates that Adam and Eve (our first parents) were created about 4,000 years before Christ (Gen. 5, 10; I Chron. 1-9; Matt. 1; Luke 3). And almost another 2,000 years have elapsed since the time of Christ’s birth – totaling nearly 6,000 years of human civilization to date. And the Bible tells us that shortly after the appearance of Christ on this earth again, a peaceful, utopian, 1,000-year reign begins on this planet (Rev. 20:1-10; Isa. 11).
