All of the first six days of the Bible end with "and the evening and the morning were the X day" but there is no passage that says "And the evening
and the morning were the seventh day".
Could it be that when Jesus references the Morning Star at the end of the Bible he is talking about the New Dawn in the 8th day of the Lord.
If God is all knowing and omnipotent I don't think his day and night would be determined by the Sun and the turning of the Earth. I think a day for
God is an aeon in human terms.
If I am correct then all of recorded history is within the 7th day when god is resting. This means that when Jesus comes back, God will come back
Are we in in the seventh day?
According to why or what?
The eighth day is the Day of Resurrection....8 being the number that has no beginning and has no end.
According to Church.. Pascha(easter) is celebrated as the Resurrection Day...always celebrated one week after the Jewish Passover
Pascha~talk on the Eighth day and more
Thus the Christian Pascha, which follows the Old Testament Pesach’s full moon, can never coincide with it or precede it.
Today, in the era of the New Testament, whether the full moon corresponds with the present Hebrew Pesach or not, can have no bearing on the Christian
As an example, let us note that if the first (Paschal) full moon following the vernal equinox does not correspond with the moon of the Hebrew Pesach,
it means that the latter is based upon another full moon, either one which precedes or one that follows the first full moon.
Neither of these would be of significance for the Christian Pascha since one of them is the second moon that follows the vernal equinox and the other
one precedes it.

''Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive...
"O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?"
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! (1 Corinthians 15:20-22 and 55-57)
A friend that I haven't seen in awhile has a big map of the world....on it shows that one day there will be an eighth day everyday...This is the
Resurrection Day in which time never ends...of-course this happens after this world ends...the Present world as we know it.
If I meet up with this friend, I will try and get a picture of the map.
Christianity celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ every Sunday and it is for this reason that it is Sunday,and not Saturday, our Sabbath.
more quotes///The number eight is the symbol of the Resurrection, for it
was on the day after the Sabbath, and so the eighth day, that
Christ rose from the tomb. Furthermore, the seven days of
the week are the image of the time of this world, and the
eighth day of the everlasting day. Sunday is the liturgical
commemoration of the eighth day, at the same time a
memorial of the Resurrection and a prophecy of the world to
St Augustine in his Book 22 of “The City of God” writes:
“an eighth day and eternal day, consecrated by the
Resurrection of Christ… There we shall rest and see, see and
love, love and praise.”
Hope that helps you out a little.
