    Default Times.

    In the book of Genesis 41:29,30 , We learn a design of nature
    7 years of abundance that is followed by 7 years of famine.

    Pharaoh’s Dreams

    41 When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile, 2 when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds. 3 After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank. 4 And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up.
    5 He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain,healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk. 6 After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted—thin and scorched by the east wind. 7 The thin heads of grain swallowed up the seven healthy, full heads. Then Pharaoh woke up; it had been a dream.
    8 In the morning his mind was troubled, so he sent for all the magiciansand wise men of Egypt. Pharaoh told them his dreams, but no one could interpret them for him.
    9 Then the chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh, “Today I am reminded of my shortcomings. 10 Pharaoh was once angry with his servants, and he imprisoned me and the chief baker in the house of the captain of the guard. 11 Each of us had a dream the same night, and each dream had a meaning of its own. 12 Now a young Hebrew was there with us, a servant of the captain of the guard. We told him our dreams, and he interpreted them for us, giving each man the interpretation of his dream. 13 And things turned out exactly as he interpreted them to us: I was restored to my position, and the other man was impaled.”
    14 So Pharaoh sent for Joseph, and he was quickly brought from the dungeon. When he had shaved and changed his clothes, he came before Pharaoh.
    15 Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream, and no one can interpret it.But I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.”
    16 “I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.”
    17 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “In my dream I was standing on the bank of the Nile, 18 when out of the river there came up seven cows, fat and sleek, and they grazed among the reeds. 19 After them, seven other cows came up—scrawny and very ugly and lean. I had never seen such ugly cows in all the land of Egypt. 20 The lean, ugly cows ate up the seven fat cows that came up first. 21 But even after they ate them, no one could tell that they had done so; they looked just as ugly as before. Then I woke up.
    22 “In my dream I saw seven heads of grain, full and good, growing on a single stalk. 23 After them, seven other heads sprouted—withered and thin and scorched by the east wind. 24 The thin heads of grain swallowed up the seven good heads. I told this to the magicians, but none of them could explain it to me.”
    25 Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do. 26 The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads of grain are seven years; it is one and the same dream. 27 The seven lean, ugly cows that came up afterward are seven years, and so are the seven worthless heads of grain scorched by the east wind: They are seven years of famine.
    28 “It is just as I said to Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do. 29 Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, 30 but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land. 31 The abundance in the land will not be remembered, because the famine that follows it will be so severe. 32 The reason the dream was given to Pharaoh in two forms is that the matter has been firmly decidedby God, and God will do it soon.
    Ecclesiastes 3New International Version (NIV)

    A Time for Everything

    3 There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:


    2 a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
    6 a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    8 a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.



    There is a time for something example a time to be born and a time when you have no life that you received from birth.

    THERE IS A TIME FOR SOMETHING AND THEN THERE IS NO OF THAT.

    A TIME TO SPEAK AND THEN A TIME OF NO SPEECH.

    LIKE DAY WHEN THERE IS ABUNDANCE OF LIGHT AND THEN THERE IS NO ABUNDANCE OF LIGHT.

    THERE IS SIMILARLY TIME OF ABUNDANCE OF GODS PRESENCE AND THEN THERE IS NO ABUNDANCE OF HIS PRESENCE.

    LIKE PROPHET ELIJAH WAS FED BY RAVENS, WHEN THERE WAS A TIME OF FAMINE.

    A TIME WHEN CREATOR SHOWS HIS HELPING POWER AND THEN THERE COMES AN ABSENCE OF HIS PRESENCE AND THEN THERE IS TIME OF CREATION TO HELP YOU, LIKE PROPHET ELIJAH GOT HELP FROM WIDOW, RAVENS .

    A TIME OF CREATOR TO HELP YOU, ( 7 YEARS OF TIME OF ABUNDANCE).
    A TIME OF CREATION TO HELP YOU,(7 YEARS OF TIME OF NO ABUNDANCE)

    THERE WILL BE PERIOD OF GOD AND THERE WILL BE PERIOD OF NO GOD.

    JUST BELIEVE AFTER 12 HOURS OF NIGHT THERE WILL BE 12 HOURS OF DAY.


    God no God.

    Wow, the large sized, bold and underlining made it really obnoxious. I didn't even bother trying to read when i saw that mess. It doesn't make things emphasized, it just makes it more difficult to read.
    From the little i did see it seems you're taking a specific instance and trying to create a doctrine around it. Not a biblical approach and i have never seen evidence of this in my, or anyone elses lives. I've seen some people struggle all their lives, while others even admit to having an easy life and no real problems. People in their 40s and 50s, Christians on complete opposite sides of the spectrum whose entire lives were consistently good or bad. No 7 year switches. I've witnessed others try to take things, particularly OT stories about specific people and places, and create doctrines out of them. Just because God deals with a person one way at one time does not mean that is a representation of how God operates in all situations. A common problem with Christians, taking personal things and telling everyone it's the only way.
    Give me a new voice
    Give me a heart for repentance and make it stay
    Cause I've idolized my words
    It's all my fault
    But it's comfortable
