FROM ADAM TO THE LAND OF PROMISE
One of the most interesting things about the Bible is how inclusive God was in telling us about how old someone was when becoming the father of a first son, or when a major event happened.  By God's word we are able to diagram all the way from Adam's birth through the line of Seth to the arrival of the Jews to the Land of Promise.  The tightest string of "begats", Adam’s line
through Seth, almost seems to end with the Flood of Noah (Genesis 6).  But with careful attention to the following chapters of Genesis and Exodus the entirety of this procession of people and events continues over the flood and culminates with the Jews entering the Land of Promise.
     In my earliest work, I could not help but sense that this procession of numbers was provided to us for a reason – other than the challenge of attempting to memorize it all for some well intended Sunday school teacher.
    I have not tried to establish any correlation between the events of the Old Testament and a BC calendar (counting backwards from the Birth of Christ).  it seems to me that to attempt to do so
would result in any number of circular arguments and create a distraction from my overall work.  I have focused on what the Bible does say and leave it to others to theorize about such dates or to suppose what the Bible does not say.  The Bible does provide the precise years going forward from Adam to the Land of Promise, and so it deserved attention as an integral part of this project.
    As a matter of considerable personal interest, this approach shows that Abraham was born 1948 years from Adam's birth and we know from modern history that Israel was officially made a state among the world's nations 1948 years from the birth of Jesus Christ.  Today’s Jews also know this fact about Abraham’s birth date but do not acknowledge Jesus as LORD and so they do not also see this as particularly noteworthy.
     Do you believe this is a coincidence or, in the purest sense, “prophetic”?

The importance of this diagram
On its own a diagram of the people and events from Adam to the Land of Promise would be of modest interest.  It perhaps helps to get a better grasp of who came before whom and how long before this or that happened, but really not much else.  The import of this information, however, is considerable when applied to the overall plan of creation.  The complete diagram (Adam to the Land of Promise) has a set position on the whole Creation Plan diagram which illuminates critical information and provides confirmations that cannot be seen any other way - much like the legend to a treasure map.  This diagram is only one component of the overall plan, but essential to grasping the whole.

   Bottom illustration shows the same diagram (Adam to the Land of Promise) as completely synchronized with the 40 year wilderness of the Jews leaving Egypt and the point of the Land of Promise sits precisely on the heart of the Cross of Christ. The gold square around this area must represent Restoration because it marks the end of Exile in Babylon in historical time, 537 BC, as well as the beginning and end of the Exodus of the Jews in Egypt.
