Third Day – so, when is it?



God’s timing is a mystery. But sometimes he gives us clues, to make us ponder his movements.

God gives a warning to Hosea about the sins of Israel. This is something that applies to all of us.

Hsa 4:4   Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people [are] as they that strive with the priest.

Hsa 4:5   Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.

Hsa 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

So, since we all have sinned, how long does he allow for us to return to Him?

Hsa 6:1 ¶ Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

Hsa 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

Hsa 6:3   Then shall we know, [if] we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter [and] former rain unto the earth.

Hosea’s prophecy is promising a revival in the “third day.” This follows a period of time in which we are given time to return to the Lord, and mend our ways.


When is the third day? How does God count time?


1. Peter reminds us of one way God counts time.

II Peter 3:8, “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. Other places in the bible, a day is a year.

3. And in some places, a day is a literal day.

So, does any of this help us understand when this “end time” ends?

Modern insight

Dumitru Duduman is thought by some to be a modern visionary and prophet. He was given insight into the future of America and Europe.

I do not endorse anyone 100% because I do not know them. The reason I present what he says is because he happens to comment on things that seem relevant now, and some of what he says seems to match.

This is an excerpt from a summary of his predictions:

WHEN WILL IT HAPPEN? – 1991 So many people were asking, “When will it happen? When Will America burn?” I prayed and asked God, “What will I tell people when they ask me when it will happen?”

That night an angel came and touched me on the hand and said, “Dumitru, wake up! Sit up! Get your Bible and read Hosea 4:6-9 and Hosea 6:1-3.”

“Tell the people of America that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. If they will repent and turn back to God, they will make it through the second day to the third day. If they don’t, they will not make it.”

So, possibly, the “second day” is something to endure.

By the third day, it seems to be over. Or, maybe the second day is a trial, but the third day, it is even worse, when no one makes it.

But, according to Hosea 6:2 above, the third day is the day we are raised up.


Gregorian calendar and the Hebrew Calendar


So if the end of the first and second day are 1000 and 2000 AD, then we are now in the third day. The end of the third day would be 900 years from now.

The timing seems to be a bit of a mystery.  But God does that, so we will meditate on his word.

The question is, when is time zero (0)?
When do we start time?
We may be still in the second day.

If we start time at 0-1 AD, then we are in the third day in 2010.

But if we start time at the time Christ left earth, (about 30 AD) then we are still in the second day. The third day would not be until 2030 AD, if God used the Gregorian calendar.


But God does not use the Gregorian calendar. He uses the Hebrew calendar.

Converting to the Hebrew calendar

If so, then we have 30 years left at the most, if we use the Gregorian calendar (365 days/ year). 

Compare this to the Hebrew calendar = 360 days/ year.

It is now the year 2010.

2010 years x 5 days extra each year = 10050 days extra / 360 days per year for Hebrew = 27.9 years = about 28 years

So, we do not actually have 30 years left on the Hebrew calendar, but 30- 28 = about 2 years left.

This is based on if time = 0 was 0-1 AD.

If time 0 = time Christ left the earth

2010 – 30 AD = 1980 solar years

1980 x 5 extra days each year =

9900 extra days / 360 days per Hebrew year =

27.5 years =

About 28 years

1980 solar + 28 years correction = 2008 Hebrew years since Christ left.

So, in this case, if relevant, we are already in the third day.


Final Thoughts

Jesus was right when He said, we would not know the day nor the hour.

But in any case, from other signs, it seems that we are in transition, between the second day and the third day.

Remember that modern prophecy is just a supplement to biblical prophecy. 

We look mainly to the bible for guidelines. 

If we follow the signs and indicators in the bible, we will not miss anything.

  1. Marianne…the ‘three-day’ event is, indeed, interesting. Doesn’t seem to be that much about it. But I found something in Esther which ‘seems’ related. We know, of course the plot layed to destroy the Jews (Esther was raised up as an instrument of deliverance for the nation of Israel).

    During the TWO DAYS (THIRTEENTH AND FOURTEENTH DAYS IN THE MONTH OF ATAR..the twelfth month)… the enemy would have been destroying the Jews…God was giving victory to the Jews over many thousands of the enemy. The battle raged for the thirteenth and fourteenth of Atar. On the third day which was the fifteen day of the month Atar…the Jews rested from the battle and enjoyed the deliverance at the hand of God through Esther and Mordicai. The verses following tells about Two Days of feasting ordained by Mordicai and Esther as annual feast days to celebrate victory over their enemies.

    Esther 9:1 Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king’s commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)

    2The Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as sought their hurt: and no man could withstand them; for the fear of them fell upon all people.

    5 Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would unto those that hated them.

    17 On the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of the same rested they, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.

    18But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof, and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.

    In the time of Esther, the Jews knew Two Days of terrible warfare. But on the Third day …they had Peace and Rest…’raised up’…so to speak.

    This particular prophecy of Hosea is not one I’m familiar with. My interest is sparked. Want to search further on the subject.

    Good post. Thanks.

  2. Matthew 24-36..But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
    John 5:28,29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
    Jesus said, “I am the resurrection” Christ within is the resurrection of the just..
    This hour of resurrection is when men are transformed spiritually into the resurrection or rebirth of Christ within……and the resurrection of the DAMNED.. These are those who do not believe the gospel but do believe the lie that damns them.. 2 thess 2…

    This resurrection of the just and resurrection of the damned is NOT THE REDEMPION OF THE BODY..
    THE redemption of the body of Rom 8-23 happens when Jesus returns.. As John said ”
    1 John 3:2..Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye we shall be changed..

    Matthew 13 -35 through 40 …shows how the aforementioned two groups are made… Jesus sows his seed which is the word of God and produces children of god.. Satan sowes his seed and produces tares…His seed is the koran…and more…Satan has been sowing seed (false doctrine) since the garden of Eden.. The koran is his final assult…Those gathered into Islam and remain will join Mohammed in hell..Islam is the braod gate that leads to hell…
    2 thess 2 tells of the mystery of iniquity …This mystery of iniquity is believing and teaching that satan is the god of Abraham..This mystery of iniquity is the LIE THAT DAMNS those that believe it..and it transforms men into children of satan…
    the tares..

    John 8 pretty much sums it up.. Men claimed they were sons of Abraham and worshipped Abrhams god.. Jesus said these were not SONS of Abraham, but seed of Abraham and they worshipped satan and were children of satan..

  3. Jesus said…And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

    These two groups are gods children (wheat) and satan’s children (tares)…
    Genesis 1-26 is prophecy of these two groups that are MADE in the image of god or the image of satan…Note” IT says MADE.. It does not say Create… The creation of man is in the next verse.. Gen. 1-27..
    I repeat Gen 1-26 is a prophecy and was sealed ..Jesus explained it in MAtt 13- 35-40..He expounded what he called a mystery sealed from the foundation of the world..The foundation of the world would be the advent of original sin..That mystery is about the MAKING OF THE children of God and the children of satan..The seed used to produce these is THE WORD OF GOD.. In satan’s case the seed is HIS VERSION OF THE WORD OF GOD..The Koran..

    We are being prepared for the appearing of the Lord.. We are in the last hour..But I confess I do not know amount of time this hour will be..

  4. If we equal a day to a millenium, then we are already in third millenium, after departure of The LORD, which took place approximately in 3793 (33 AD) acc. to hebrew callendar, in the manner of counting Jewish days;
    Second millenium would begin in 4000 (240 AD), because little part of a day is taken into account as a full day;
    Timespan of third millenium would be from year 5000 (1,240 AD) to 6,000 (2,240 AD);

    Here’s the clue: redemption occurs little before Eve of Sabbath day, namely Friday night;

  5. Regardless when he comes we must be ready for him. Like a virgen bride with oil in our lamp, overcomers that have stayed the course till he comes are he calls us home. The main thing that when he does come are calls us home we have stayed the course and are ready and we keep ever looking for him to come till that great day when he finally does come or we go home to forever be with him..

  6. Why worry about time?

    Rev 10:6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

    Time is not relevant to His coming.
    Even the devil knows that his time is short.
    Time will stand still when the sun turns into darkness.
