Which Day Dawns?

“So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.”  2 Peter 1:19

Peter wrote this in the first century AD.  Some have said that dawning days only apply to 7,000 year days.  But the day dawned in 627BC in the 7,000 year day begun at the fall 4127BC, and Peter implies that the day hadn’t yet dawned.   Therefore Peter must be talking about another day, the Day of the Lord.  He quotes Moses that a day is as a thousand years.  Moses no doubt learned from the first ten patriarchs who all fell short of their 1,000 year birthday.  The day dawns at 500 years out of 1,000.  The day will dawn near the start of the Grand Jubilee, the 50th 1,000 year period since creation started on earth.
