"COUNTDOWN to 6000"  Years of History    

                                               "Prophecy 2020"                    1/20/2020
In 1973 I first read Hal Lindsey's book “The Late Great Planet Earth”. I was very excited after reading it because we
did not study much future prophecy in the denomination I was brought up in. (WELS Lutheran)

“Harold Lee Lindsey (born November 23, 1929) is an American evangelist and Christian writer. He is a Christian Zionist
and dispensationalist author and television host. He is most famous for writing a series of popular apocalyptic books
suggesting that the rapture was likely to occur in the 1980s.” Wikepedia

Reading Lindsey's book caused me to engage in a lifelong study of as yet unfulfilled biblical prophecy. I read all that I
could on the subject and also read through the entire bible underlining in red every verse of unfulfilled end times
prophecy that I could identify. I also put all of those verses into an 80286 computer word processor (Wordstar &
MultiMate) so I could sort them into a chronological order, into an order and a scenario that I thought that
they might possibly be fulfilled, updating my study every year for myself based on the previous years current events.
The original work I titled "Countdown to 6000" meaning that we were counting down to 6000 years of human history
since God created humans, expecting that at the 6000th year Jesus Christ would return followed by the millennium.

Note: This study is about the time when Jesus Christ will physically return to earth and his feet will touch the mount of
Olives and split it in half. It is not about the tribulation, the reign of the antichrist or the timing of the rapture. For
information on those topics see some of the other books available on this site in text or audio format.

Zechariah 14:4 NKJV And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And
the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west,
Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move
toward the north And half of it
toward the south.

Acts 1:9-12 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me
both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto
the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had spoken
these things, while they beheld, he
was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked
stedfastly
toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of
Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is
taken up from you into heaven, shall so come
in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

PREFACE
GOD HAS PROMISED THAT IN THE LAST DAYS BIBLICAL KNOWLEDGE WOULD BE INCREASED. (DANIEL 12:9) MANY DISCOVERIES HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE LAST 100 YEARS THAT HAVE GIVEN US A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF THE BIBLE. ARCHAEOLOGY, THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS, AND NEW TRANSLATIONS OF EXISTING LITERATURE, HAVE ALL SERVED TO MAKE END TIMES BIBLE PROPHECY, AND PARTICULARLY THE BOOK OF REVELATION MORE UNDERSTANDABLE.

MODERN SCIENCE AND COMPUTERS HAVE ALSO PLAYED A LARGE PART IN THE KNOWLEDGE EXPLOSION. COMPUTERIZED CONCORDANCES HAVE REVOLUTIONIZED SYSTEMATIC BIBLICAL STUDIES. BY THE USE OF ONE "KEYWORD," EVERY VERSE WITH THAT PARTICULAR WORD, LETTER OR NUMBER COMBINATION IN IT CAN BE FOUND IN A MATTER OF SECONDS, WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OFOVERLOOKING EVEN ONE OF THEM.

THIS BOOK UTILIZES ALL OF THE LATEST DISCOVERIES AND TECHNIQUES TO RESEARCH THE BOOK OF REVELATION, AND PLACE THE EVENTS DESCRIBED IN IT IN THE ORDER THAT THEY ARE MOST LIKELY TO OCCUR. THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY HAVE BEEN ARRANGED AND ORGANIZED WITHIN THIS BOOK IS BASED LARGELY ON HOW EACH VERSE FITS TOGETHER WITH EVERY OTHER VERSEIN THE BIBLE THAT PERTAINS TO THE SAME SUBJECT.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS BOOK IS TO GIVE THOSE WHO WISH TO STUDY END TIMES BIBLICAL PROPHECY A CLEARER UNDERSTANDING OF THE EVENTS, AND THE ORDER OF THOSE EVENTS, THAT THE LORD HAS PROMISED TO BRING TO PASS ON THE EARTH IN THE NEAR FUTURE. R. J. ADAMS.

I was brought up in the Lutheran Church (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) baptized, catechized, confirmed and believed 
that the bible was true. However, I had no interest in spiritual things, only living life for myself and my own pleasure. 

Concerning prophecy I was taught that everything that had to happen had already happened and that the office of the pope had
fulfilled the role of antichrist down 
through the centuries. I was taught that the only thing that we had to do was to be ready to
die at any time or be ready for the unexpected return of Jesus Christ, 
and that is certainly true. However, until I read Hal Lindsey's
book, “The Late Great Planet Earth” I never realized that there were signs that would indicate the 
nearness of Christ's return.
I thought that it could be at any moment or a million years in the future. That still may be true, we shall see.

Lindsey's book gave me incentive to read through the entire bible for the first time. What I found was amazing to me, not just
about prophecy. The sufferings
of Job, the wisdom in the book of Proverbs, the Story of David's life of sin and repentance,
the love in the gospel of John and the teachings of the apostles
in the epistles. All of these things were new to me.

I realized that in my life I had done absolutely nothing to show my gratefulness to God for salvation. Not that we can earn it,
but it is only right to say 
“Thank You” when anyone gives you a present, how much more should we say thank you to the
Lord Jesus Christ who died to pay for our sins enabling
us to have the free gift of eternal life and to spend eternity with
our Lord.


Romans 12:1 NKJV I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, 
which is your reasonable service.

After reading through the bible I became convinced that one should be baptized by immersion after committing ones
life to Christ snd I did so in a public baptismal service sponsored by a local Baptist church.

Acts 8:36-39 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is
water; what doth hinder me
to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.
And he answered and said, I believe that
 Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand
still: and they went down both into the water, both
 Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

After a number of years in the Baptist Church I began seeking a closer walk with the Lord and began attending
churches that put more focus on holiness and sanctification. I now serve as an elder in such a church.

Lindsey was wrong about the resurection occurring in the 1980's but he piqued my interest in bible study and he deserves
credit from me for that and from all those who have read his books and by doing so engaged in biblical studies.
Reading
through the bible encourged me to serve in the church and to give to the work of the Lord, and I am eternally grateful for that.
