Who is the Ancient of Days?

Yehovah (YHWH) is the Creator of all things, the great First Cause; hence he is uncreated, without beginning per Revelation 4:11, "Worthy, art thou, O Lord, and our God, to receive the glory, and the honour, and the power: because thou didst create all things, and, by reason of thy will, they were, and were created." (Rotherham Bible of 1902; RB); and in Job 36:26 this point is made even more clear as follows, "Lo, GOD, is greater than we can know, The number of his years, even past finding out!" (RB). It is impossible to place an age upon him, for there is no starting point from which to measure. Though ageless, he is properly called "the Ancient of Days" since his existence stretches endlessly into the past per Daniel 7:9-13, "I continued looking, until that, thrones, were placed, and, the Ancient of days, took his seat,--whose, garment, like snow, was white, and, the hair of his head, like pure wool, his throne, was flames of fire, his wheels, a burning fire. 10 A stream of fire, was flowing on and issuing forth from before him, a thousand thousand, waited upon him and, ten thousand times ten thousand, before him, stood up,--Judgment, took its seat, and, books, were opened. 11 I continued looking, then because of the sound of the great words which the horn was speaking, I continued looking, until that the wild beast, was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning of the fire. 12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, their dominion, was taken away,--but, a lengthening of life, was given to them, until time and season. 13 I continued looking in the visions of the night, when lo! with the clouds of the heavens, one like a son of man, was coming,--and, unto the Ancient of days, he approached, and, before him, they brought him near;. (RB).

He is also without future end as shown at Revelation 10:6, "and sware, by him that liveth unto the ages of ages, who created heaven, and the things that are therein, and the earth, and the things that are therein, [[and the sea, and the things that are therein,]] Delay, no longer, shall there be;" (RB). To him, the true God (YHWH) of Abraham, Issac, Ishmael, Noah, Moses, etc., the creator of all there is, whom a thousand years are but as a night watch of a few hours.- per Psalms 90:2, "Before, the mountains, were born, Or thou hadst brought forth the earth and the world, Even, from age to age, thou, wast GOD." (RB), and Jeremiah 10:10, "But, Yahweh, is God, in truth, He, is a God that, liveth, And a King of times age-abiding,--At his anger, quaketh the earth, And nations cannot endure, his wrath." (RB); and Habakkuk 1:12, "Art not, thou, from of old, O Yahweh, my God, my Holy One? Thou diest not! O Yahweh, to judgment, hast thou appointed him, and, O Rock, to correction, hast thou devoted him:" (RB); And Revelation 15:3, "and they sing the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb, saying--Great and marvelous, are thy works, Lord, God, the Almighty! Righteous and true, are thy ways, O King of the ages!" (RB).

Inspite of his timelessness, Yahweh is preeminently a historical God, identifying himself with specific times, places, persons, and events. In his dealings with mankind he has acted according to an exact timetable as shown in Galatians 4:4, "But, when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, who came to be of a woman, who came to be under law,--" (RB); and Genesis 15:13-16, "And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age." (Authorized King James Bible; AV).

Since his eternal existence is undeniable and the most fundamental fact in the universe, he has sworn by it in oaths, saying, per Jeremiah 22:24, "As I live, Declareth Yahweh,--Even though Coniah son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet-ring upon my right hand, yet, from thence, would I pull thee off;" (RB); and Numbers 14:21, "Nevertheless, as I, live,--and that all the earth may be filled with the glory of Yahweh," (RB); and Numbers 14:28, "Say unto them: As I live, is the oracle of Yahweh: Surely, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so, will I do unto you:-- " (RB): and Isaiah 49:18, "Lift up, round about, thine eyes, and see, All those, have gathered themselves together--have come to thee! As I live, Declareth Yahweh,--Surely, all those--as an ornament, shalt thou put on, And bind them about thee for a girdle, as a bride." (RB). Only senseless ones say, per Psalms 14:1, "To the Chief Musician. David's. The impious hath said in his heart--There is no God! They have acted corruptly, they have done an abominable deed, there is none that doeth good." (RB
