Hazakim

"Millennium"

[Verse 1: Tony]
Look
He stretched out the heavens and measured the earth with a span
And in six days it was finished through His perfect command
On day seven, according to His purpose and plan
The Lord blessed it and rested from the work of His hands
And the crowned jewel of the earth was man
Authority was conferred to his hands
Given dominion over all the beasts, birds, and the plants
Then the planet fell when man rebelled, weeping heard through the land
Sin doused the candle, it’s lights out
Now families wiped out by famine and by drought
Humanity fights, feelings of animus might sprout
As calamity strikes, things we examine incite doubt
We see a planet of sobbin’ and grievin’, starving and bleedin’
And say that God is hard to believe in
But we abandoned the Garden of Eden, started wanderin’, seekin’
Callin’ this treason “logic and reason”
Yet every day, and in every way
We long for much more than the present day
Free from the smoke, smell of decay and the pepper spray
To breathe the cool, cool breeze of the seventh day (yeah!)
Creation and creator were in harmony
Peace manifested, everything rested in God’s sovereignty
But here’s the mystery, possibly
The sixth day and the Sabbath day is history plus prophecy

[Hook]
A day to the Lord’s a millennium
A key to discernin’ the times – more than an idiom
In these last days that we’re livin’ in
We look toward the millennium

[Verse 2]
Let me take you to the deep, let’s swim away from the shallow
Ponder the sixth days, and the seventh day that was hallowed
The ancient rabbis and church fathers say was a shadow
A blueprint of history, and the way it unraveled
It says a day unto the Lord is a thousand years
The key of time now appeared loud and clear
For every day of creation it would mean
A corresponding thousand years of history
For six days God made the heaven and earth
Six thousand years man is treading the dirt
To gain, spread, and disperse and attain bread and to work
Man’s reign brought pain and hurt – death and a curse
Seventh day – God finished His work and rested
Seven thousandth year – peace on earth perfected
When the righteous King will return to bless
And to rule the Sabbath when the saints of the earth possess it
(Whoo!) Yeah, that’s the millennial reign
He’s console and control – no video game
I know what many will claim
But this theory goes back to the disciples of John, it’s not a trivial thing
Look, and this tradition was stated prior
By the rabbis who traced it to Elijah
And Hosea 6:2 they applied to predict
The final two thousand years would be the days of Messiah

[Hook]
A day to the Lord’s a millennium
A key to discernin’ the times – more than an idiom
In these last days that we’re livin’ in
We look toward the millennium

[Verse 3]
So now I’ve told you a theory that I hold to
So much more to say and so little time to go through ot
It’s why Paul could say that he was living in the “last days”
Now it’s final seconds, but to mention it is passé
Given the ancient belief that the Sabbath is a type
Is why John mentioned a millennium in that way
Pointing to Messiah, many shadows and signs (true!)
Creation laid a pattern – John had it in mind
It was two days from the fall to Abraham
To be called and make a clan from among the race of man (plus)
And two days later the promised Savior stands
On the earth to reverse the fallen state of man
As the slain Lamb – accomplished under a week
At the right hand, enthroned on His wondrous seat
Where He remains for two days until the sum is complete
Then His enemies will find themselves under His feet
I said He’s coming back – shofars with the thunder clap
First visit, man missed it, gotta run it back (run it back)
And you should ask (yeah!)
If the ancients were right, what time is it now? You should do the math
Everything is adding up and this may
Mean that we’re in the final seconds of the sixth day (soon!)
If that was your answer you passed the test
Time is short, better work while it’s day until the Sabbath rest

[Hook]
A day to the Lord’s a millennium
A key to discernin’ the times – more than an idiom
In these last days that we’re livin’ in
We look toward the millennium
