Based on factors like gravity and speed, how you see time depends on where in the universe you're looking at it. A minute on the moon goes faster than a minute on the Earth. A minute on the sun goes slower. Time on the sun is actually stretched out so that if you could put a clock on the sun, it would tick more slowly.

Why does the apple fall to the ground?
Because it's attracted by gravity.
Why is it attracted by gravity?
It's because space-time folds around masses.
God creates the heavens (the highest heights out there) and earth (the place down here) formless, under waters — stickiness — pregnant with hope
God forms the light at perhaps 100 million trillion trillion degrees Kelvin, and separates the light (day) that is now permeating this sticky mass from the darkness (night)
|Second.||7,750 million BC -|
3,750 million BC
|God declares an expanse (a hammering out) to bisect this stickiness, separating waters above the hammering from waters below the hammering i.e. outer space, to a diameter of about 93,000 million light years (the observable universe). Temperature drops to, perhaps, about 5.46 degrees Kelvin (about double the 2.73 degrees the universe is today)|
|Third.||3,750 million BC -|
1,750 million BC
|Binds stickiness together forming seas, land appears and plant life. The earth is much hotter in this "pre-Cambrian" age, there is less oxygen, and there are perhaps a number of "ice ages" on the surface, with frozen oceans, and with glaciers "grinding" mountains to powder.|
Earth's rotation is also faster, resulting in perhaps 450 days in a solar cycle (year)
|Fourth.||1,750 million BC -|
750 million BC
|Positions sun, moon, stars to govern time upon the earth|
|Fifth.||750 million BC -|
250 million BC
|Cambrian explosion when complex living creatures form, sea animals and flying creatures i.e. insects, dragonflies|
|Sixth.||250 million BC -|
|Land animals formed.|
At the close of the sixth day, about 4,000 BC, creates Adam to rule the earth. Sin (rebellion), violence, death, visits all creatures, ancient and young.
About 2 BC, sends His son to be man's Lord (and Saviour)
|Seventh.||Reign of Christ for one thousand years.||Rest|
Starting in Genesis 2 we see the second picture of the seven day week — the scripture summary re “children of Adam”, all made in the image of this, our God, seen as three periods of 2,000 year groups (approximately), this is an old picture, many have prophesied on this one,
a. God-Adam (father-father) revealing his favour and wrath focused on children of Adam at the start in Genesis chapter 2 until the flood and dispersion of these peoples worldwide, all knowing “about” God, if not knowing him directly, much deception abounding, e.g. as recorded in Job.
b. then Abraham-Isaac (father-son) one-third of the way, revealing his favour and wrath recorded and focused on one place, one people, i.e. the Jews, with God “tolerating” other people’s lack of knowledge, delusions “of grandeur”
c. then Jesus-Christ (son-Holy Spirit) two-thirds of the way, revealing his favour and wrath recorded and spoken about everywhere,
reaching up to today three-thirds of the way, with the Gospel message now preached via pre-called and pre-chosen saints, through radio, TV, Internet-smartphones, in every language, literally billions, reading and hearing about the Lord and what he did, taking on our fallenness, on the cross.
coming up to a seventh day (Christ’s return and millennial reign through the Holy Spirit, when Satan, the deceiver, is “locked up”).

From some early morning thoughts just after 01:02:03 on 04/05/06 — Australian time
|The Father: Creation of Adam to Birth of Abram ("Ab" — "Father"):||4018 BC - 2011 BC||2008 years|
|The Son (Building the Name): Abraham/Isaac to ||2010 BC - 3 BC||2008 years|
|Holy Spirit (The Kingdom): Peace in Christ to pseudopeace with pseudoChrist:||2 BC - 2006 AD||2008 years|
|We'll Recognize Israel: vowed Mr Abbas before all the United Nations, on Rosh Hashanah in 2006:||Sep2006 —Mar2010||3½ years|
|Israel wrecks the process: Peace sacrifices, offerings made to stop:||Mar2010 AD||Sabbath|
|Israel: Very imminently, the space-time continuum "splits", a major Repentance (and call upon Jesus, the Messiah):||3½ years|
So, we'll then have been 6000 years on our own, and had 31 years with the Son of God (the bridegroom)
So those years add up to 6031 both ways yes, it's a bit like double entry book keeping.

With Jewish land possession, the 50th year, the first year following the seventh "group of seven", was always to be a Jubilee year when the trumpet would be especially blown (see
Interestingly according to Acts 13:20-21, David's ascent to the throne came in the 10th Jubilee year that followed 490 years (70 times seven) years of forgiveness from the Lord.
And very interestingly in the timeline above, the six day war in June 1967, when Israel reclaimed all of Jerusalem, it came in the 70th Jubilee year that followed 3430 years (70 times seven times seven years) of forgiveness from the Lord.
1465BC to 1AD = 1465 years. 1AD to 1966AD = 1965 years. 1465+1965 = 3430 years (or 490 sabbaths).
In the first instance, we see in 975-974 BC God's chosen king, David revealed.
In the second instance, we see in 1966-1967 AD God's chosen city, Jerusalem revealed. Click here for a live webcam on the Western Wall.
As a side note, it came 49 years after the freeing of Beersheba (and Jerusalem) from the Ottoman Empire, the 69th Jubilee year of 1917-1918,
In the first instance, we see after 40 years in 935-934 BC, his precious son Solomon acknowledged in the nation.
In the second instance, we see after 40 years in 2006-2007 AD, his precious people Israel acknowledged in the United Nations click here.
In the first instance according to 2 Chronicles 3:2, we see in the 4th year of his reign in 932-931 BC, the commencement of the building of God's temple on earth, a holy place, a separated place, where at one point in its dedication by Solomon not even the priests could stand to minister
Eden in 2010: In the second instance, did we see in March 2010 AD, the commencement of a huge split by the US Govt from Jerusalem on earth. From the viewpoint of a rebellious world, the start of a great divorce. Babylon crashing.
Certainly the meeting in Copenhagen in Dec 2009 spoke of the fear, worldwide, of what people see coming upon the earth.
Numbers do not rule us. Superstitious i.e. Excessively fearful of the ones (or one) who distributes to each one his destiny, can be a starting place to finding the Father, as Paul preached on Mars Hill. And time indeed reveals a most detailed harmony, like music. "The secret, covered things belong to our Lord God: those uncovered belong to us and to our children forever, that we may accomplish every arrangement laid out there".
"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, unless He reveals His intimate secret counsels to His servants the prophets."
In place of the inward peace of Christ, the outward confirmation — September 2006 — click here is in the news
Then an intensely spiritual picture is seen, the Great Divorce between Heaven and Earth. Midway through seven years, the scriptures speak of seeing Eve in heaven, (now shining with the life-giving Spirit, Wisdom, Jerusalem our mother) bringing to birth a Man-child a corporate body of resurrected saints back to Abel, currently with Christ in the third heaven in Paradise. And as prophesied in Eden, the woman encounters Satan seeking to devour her seed. But her child is caught up to God and his throne, the Devil, forever "casting aspersions", is now "cast out" of Heaven, as Eve, on earth as well, flees into a wilderness place where she is nourished for 1,260 days
It is a time of trial on earth. But the "nourish" word reminds us of the promise

The time starts with a great earthquake, followed by the sun becoming black (sounding a little like a solar eclipse), the moon looking like blood, but then the stars drop, the sky, yes, the universe separates as when a writing scroll is wrapped together, and as everybody tries to hide, the Lord's face is revealed
"Where the body → the carcase is, there the eagles will be gathered together."
But as the Lord (1) pours out the spirit of grace-unmerited favour and supplications-earnest prayers on the House of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem
So yes, if these dates reflect this coming situation, it is now very short. Come Lord Jesus.
