I believe in Genesis, the numbers of the first seven verses correspond
to each 1000 year
period since creation. Thus, they are all a form of prophesy.
First millinnium: creation
[Gen 1:1] In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Second millinnium: The flood wiped the earth clean.
[Gen 1:2] The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of
the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.
Third millinnium: The covenant promise to Abraham and the Isrealites
that was a
major revelation in human history.
[Gen 1:3] And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
Forth millinnium: Jesus came, and was brought back to life from
out of the
darkness of the dead
[Gen 1:4] And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from
Fifth millinnium: Period of grace; acceptance of Jesus causes
people to be
lights, rejection causes people to fall into darkness.
[Gen 1:5] God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there
was evening and there was morning, one day.
Sixth millinnium: At the end of which, there will be a rapture,
where people rise
up to heaven, just as the waters are separated from the earth and rise up into the sky
to form the pre-flood canopy of water above the earth. Also, as Revelation says,
the Seas are the Nations, or, people.
[Gen 1:6] And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and
let it separate the waters from the waters."
Finally, there are several other separations going on after the rapture:
get either the seal of God or the mark of the beast during the tribulation, and
are separated into the sheep and goats, and wheat and tares. Also Satan is
finally cast out of Heaven and all his demons no longer are allowed into heaven,
finally banished even beneath the earth. And finally, at the end of the 7th mil,
people are once again tested, and separated once and for all, for all time.
[Gen 1:7] And God made the firmament and separated the waters which
were under the
firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. And it was so.
