An eighth and final day
One could argue that there is nothing about an eighth day in the Genesis description of Creation and that is true.  But since we know God rests and, as yet, He is not dwelling with man (Revelation 21:3) which is also part of His plan, we can safely assume He will move again.  Given the importance throughout the Old Testament of an 8th day and Revelation’s foretelling of a New
Heaven and New Earth, it becomes essential to allow for an Eighth Day on our diagram of the overall Creation Plan – for Jubilee, Pentecost and Circumcision. Click to view larger image.
     See the plan in this diagrammatic way is helpful, but doesn’t explain so many other things that we must comprehend about God’s Plan.  Viewing the Days in this fashion does allow us to think about the Plan without obsessing over lengths of time because each Day is equal in width.  It’s not enough, however, to see the Days as untimed, per se, because they also overlap in some ways.
   
 Positioning the cross of Christ
Now this is where it gets spiritual and I do expect there will be plenty of believers and skeptics alike who cannot accept the idea that God speaks to us today in a way that we can clearly understand what He has said.  But I have no choice but to tell of this event because it is the most precious bit of information about how this all began to come together and it didn’t come from me.  As I was concentrating on the text diagram (see illustration B) I felt compelled to try to attach time to it as if counting forwards from the Creation of Adam, which my childhood King James Bible said was 4004 years before the birth of Christ.  I had no reason not to explore this at least as a possibility and so I chose the advent of One Day, when God separated the light from the darkness, to be the beginning of that 4000 year period.  Plus 2 Peter 3:8 says  “But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day”.  This would place the time of Christ between a forth and a fifth day precisely in the center of the 8 day diagram.  WIth the Cross in the center we now have the overall framework for the Creation Plan, the relevance of which is astounding.
    If time is best envisioned as a horizontal line and Jesus lived on earth with us for a time, I knew I had to show the life and sacrifice of Jesus on a time line within the 8 days diagram.  That’s fine but
when it came to plotting the time of Jesus on earth I was stumped.  Should I try to add an approximate 33 year blip on a horizontal time-line for the life of Christ when God is clearly not bound by time?  I decided no.  But how was I to fully illustrate the time of Jesus without showing it on the diagram?  The answer came to me not from my own understanding but from God’s perspective.  He said “skip it”.  I was baffled.  How could I skip the most important of all Christian events in the Bible?  His answer was more clear when He said “show it as a space not proportional to the rest”.  Then I understood it was an event that could not adequately be measured by any length of time, that it was like an “out of time” event, and so I chose make a space on the horizontal time-line 1/8th of the width of the individual days and left it at that.  I had already determined that Jesus would be directly below the Throne of God so that much was obvious and I determined that the “separation” of the earth had to be in two directions to accomodate the Cross symbol.  It happened that that was how I originally positioned the cross. But it wasn’t until later in my work that I became convinced of the correctness of this position.  
      It appears to be of no consequence if the Days of Genesis 1 are about 24 hour periods, 1000 year periods or ages.  I do believe, however, the Days are as 1000 years on the centermost areas of the diagram.  In other words, God is clueing us in on how His plan can actually be visualized.  It’s like a snapshot in time of the central component of His perfect Plan for Creation resting upon the Cross of Christ.
    This idea is confirmed with the addition of other diagrams and drawings to this framework – 
additions that are also from the Bible as seen in several chapters of my book.
