Notes on Revelation

...a day as a thousand years


Heshvan 16, 5760
October 26, 1999

For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.--Psalm 90:4

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.--2 Peter 3:8

Every 88 of our days, Mercury orbits the Sun once. Therefore, Mercury's year equals 88 Earth days.

Mercury spins 1 1/2 turns per orbit of the Sun. If you were to stand at point X on Mercury with the Sun overhead at noon, wait for it to set and night to pass and then have it appear again overhead at noon, this would constitute one day and would take two orbits around the sun--two years. Therefore, one Mercury day lasts two Mercury years. One of Mercury's days lasts 176 (88 x 2) of our days.

Is there some point out there in the Universe where one day equals 1,000 years? I guess it's pretty close to heaven.
