🌎A Scientific Harmonization of Creation Week: Day 1

INTRODUCTION

Day 1 of creation week has probably been the most controversial out of the 6 Days of creation. In this presentation I will provide a clean understanding of Genesis 1:1-5. The idea here is not to reduce God to an equation on a chalkboard but to explain the Genesis account in a way the best harmonizes to our scientific knowledge. In no way am I deliberately trying to be different or original from professional creationists in the field. For the most part this scientific explanation should sit very well with professional creationists. What I have done differently I will provide sound reasons for. Keep in mind that a harmonization means that each step of creation is like a Divine Carpenter, or a Chef, making everything in order of importance. For example, you don't build the roof of a house before you pour the foundation. You don't make the foundation before getting supplies and measurements. And you don't turn on the lights until you prepare the power source. Each step of this presentation will not in the slightest contradict science, but provide an explanation which many in the field of science should see themselves at peace with.

🌎Genesis 1:1

👉 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

The first act of Day 1 is the creation of space and the necessary ingredients to start crafting all things. The first thing needed is God. Without God building a space to construct planets cannot be done. The conventional Big Bang theory teaches us how an accidental explosion somehow caused an orderly universe. But there are no scientific observations ever made that support the idea that order comes out of chaos. Only during the process of demolition do we ever see that goal achieved. That achievement would be the destruction of a building. Though a demolition crew is never used in the construction of a building as the Big Bang theory suggest. Explosions always cause disorder...not order.

In the first act of creation God has created the space which God would later decorate with plenty of stars and planets. But the first step is to create the space needed for the project and get supplies out there. No Carpenter or Chef shows up for work thinking his supplies will be there. They get their supplies ready before starting their project. Since man is made in the image and likeness of God, logical thinking is also part of us being created by God.

The universe and the earth are now birthed...conceived. God created matter, gases, gravity, electromagnetic radiation and photons -- the basic ingredients needed for the creation of the universe and planetary systems.

The word "heavens" taken from the Modern English Version of the Bible used for verse 1 is understood precisely from our standpoint of modern English. God created the heavens (i.e., the universe) and the elements needed to create the heavens of all planetary systems. The KJV uses the singular "heaven" which grammatically is understood as the entire universe. The Hebrew word is Shamayin and depending on the context will be used to describe the earthly heaven (the sky) or the universe. Though in verse 1, whether you are reading an old English translation like the KJV or a modern translation like the MEV, Shamayin means the universe. And while the atmospheres of the planets are not yet created, the needed supplies to create planetary systems have been created from scratch at God's command,

",,,and the earth"

The earth is now in the earliest stage of conception. The earth cannot live on its own because it is not yet even alive. The earth is a watery mass in this newly created expanse we also call space. Its also important to this study to understand what the word "expanse" means.

Webster's 1828 Dictionary says:

"EXPANSE, noun expans'. [Latin expansum.] A spreading; extend; a wide extent of space or body; as the expanse of heaven."

God created a space which is the great expanse. No scientist knows the limits of the expanse (i.e., space).

The Webster's 1828 Dictionary defines space as:

"Space
SPACE, noun [Latin spatium, space; spatior, to wander. This word is probably formed on the root of pateo.]

1. Room; extension. space in the abstract, is mere extension. Pure space is capable neither of resistance nor motion.

2. Any quantity of extension. In relation to bodies, space is the interval between any two or more object' as the space between two stars or two hills The quantity of space or extent between bodies, constitutes their distance form each other."

Space is a room that God created. The universe is a finite place that had a beginning. Evolutionists claim an accident cause a huge explosion and the universe was born out of chaos. Though Holy Scripture says our Eternal Father deliberately created the universe with a purpose. That purpose revolves around the earth. Humanity is God's greatest goal of creation week. But creating humans is done in steps, as God is the greatest of all scientists and knows what He is doing,
________________________________________________
🌎Genesis 1:2,

👉 "The earth was formless and void, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the water."

After the creation of space-time, matter and energy, God's Spirit is now moving over the waters of the earth in its conception. This earth is formless and void, empty of anything we would recognize as earth today. It is noteworthy to see how this was translated in the Greek Septuagint:

👉 "ἡ δὲ γῆ ἦν ἀόρατος καὶ ἀκατασκεύαστος, καὶ σκότος ἐπάνω τῆς ἀβύσσου, καὶ πνεῦμα θεοῦ ἐπεφέρετο ἐπάνω τοῦ ὕδατος."

✅Word: ἀόρατος (invisible, without form).

✅Word: ἀκατασκεύαστος (without shape).

So the earth is merely just a very clear watery substance in space. There are no stars at this point and without the light of stars the universe is a very dark place. The watery deep of the earth cannot be seen. This earth had not become a wasteland due to some mysterious gap between Gen.1:1 and 1:2. There is no gap between verses. Verse 1 begins with the universe and the watery heap that will be the earth. Then God's Spirit follows up on that creation of space, and now, having the supplies to start creation, will now begin construction.  Though here in verse 2 of Day 1 the earth is empty and void...shapeless and unseen.
_______________________________________________
💥Genesis 1:3 -- The Light

👉 "God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light."

The Douay Rheims Bible says: 👉 "And God said: Be light made. And light was made."

The general consensus among creationists is how the light is electromagnetic radiation and photons. While this is respectable, I do have a small problem with that explanation. At this point God's Spirit is hovering over the earth (v.2). He is now going to start creating the earth. Electromagnetic radiation and photons would have just as easily been created in verse 1 of Day 1. With the supply of energy now already created by God, He now creates the light on the earth for the earth. The verse seems to clearly indicate that this light is part of the earth.

God's Spirit in the Bible is described as Light and Eternal Life. God is a living Being Who Is the Source of all light and life. So this is important to understand before we go any further. With God's Eternal Presence on earth, the earth itself is already in good hands. For God is the greatest of Carpenters and the greatest of Chefs. God now reaches into Himself for the recipe that would bring the light of life upon the earth. Though God Himself Is Light and Life, the light created here is not God but a created light for the earth with the purpose of giving the earth life.

Thus God created the core of the earth -- that little sun that burns white hot inside the center of our planet. In the darkness of space the light of this core coming into existence would have been the only true light seen in space, seen through the watery heap, as the universe is still in darkness at this stage of creation. On this fetal earth, it can be safely said that the iron age has begun, as the core is made of iron.

The core is now activated and the earth is now been given the light of life by our Eternal Father,

🌎How The Early Church Fathers Understood Day 1

When you read the works of the early church fathers it is important that you understand what you are reading. What you are not reading is Scripture. The early church fathers are not Scripture and should not be read as Scripture. The early church fathers were not scientists and did not understand nor have our modern knowledge of science. So their explanations are not infallible.
However, the early church fathers will accurately lay down the basis of how Scripture is to be understood. They understood what Scripture was saying to them but lacked the proper knowledge of science to fully capture the science behind the events. What they do provide is a road map of how we may understand the basic principles of proper exegesis.

✅Clement of Alexandria (150-215 A.D.)

The following is taken from his writing called The Instructor, which I’m citing from the very last page of Book III entitled To The Paedagous:

“And when the seasons, in their circling course,
Winter and summer, spring and autumn, each
Should come, according to well-ordered plan;
Out of a confused heap who didst create
This ordered sphere, and from the shapeless mass
Of matter didst the universe adorn;--
Grant to me life, and be that life well spent,
Thy grace enjoying; let me act and speak
In all things as Thy Holy Scriptures teach”
(Ante-Nicene Christian Library, Vol.1).

Here Clement attributes the seasons to God's creation of the earth's sphere. This is a 2nd century church father so how he's understanding Scripture is important to our own understanding.

✅Origen (185-254 A.D.)

“Certainly what some say of this world, that it is corruptible because it was made, and yet does not go to corruption because the will of God, who made it and preserves it from being mastered by corruption, is stronger and more powerful than corruption, may more rightly be believed of that world which we have above called a “fixed” sphere, because by the will of God it is in no way “subject to corruption” (cf.Rom 8:20, 21), for the reason that it has not admitted the causes of corruption" (On First Principles, Book II, Chapter III, p.113).

Here Origen is describing how the sphere of the earth abides by the fixed laws God ordained for it. God set these laws in motion so that the earth will not fall into corruption -- meaning: the earth will not go into corruption by floating away from its orbit or falling from its position in the solar system. These fixed laws will not be moved and therefore the earth will not deviate from the laws of physics God ordained for the earth.

✅St.Ambrose (337-397 A.D.)

"Consequently, the year, too, has the stamp of a world coming to birth, as the splendor of the springtime shines forth all the more clearly because of the winter’s ice and darkness now past. The shape of the circles of years to come has been given form by the first dawn of the world” (St.Ambrose, "Hexameron" The Fathers Of The Church series translated by John J. Savage., p.12).

Ambrose understands that both the shape of the earth and its rotation began on Day 1. This is also the general consensus of professional creationists.

✅St.Augustine (354-430 A.D.)

“But if the light first created enveloped the earth on all sides, whether it was motionless or travelling round, it could not be followed anywhere by night, because it did not vacate any place to make room for night. But was it made on one side, so that as it travelled it would permit the night to follow after from the other? Although water still covered all the earth, there was nothing to prevent the massive watery sphere from having day on one side by the presence of light, and on the other side, night by the absence of light. Thus, in the evening, darkness would pass to that side from which light would be turning to the other” (St.Augustine, "Augustine’s book The Literal Meaning of Genesis, Vol.1." Ancient Christian Writers, Vol.41., p.33).

St.Augustine may not be able to identify the source of light on Day 1, but he, like other church fathers mentioned here and not mentioned here, are reading that the earth was round and began to rotate on Day 1.

What Augustine has right, besides how the earth is a sphere, is how the light enveloped the earth on all sides. The earth's core is lighting up everything around it as it is not yet buried by layers of soil as soil and rock are also being developed.

From what we read from the early church fathers, its clear to my mind that they were reading a round and rotating earth in Day 1. They were not fools but brilliant ancient scholars who understood Scripture well.
_______________________________________________
🌎Genesis 1:4-5 -- Rotation of Earth

👉 "4 God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day."

In verse 3 God created the light and this light gave life to the earth -- a light that will sustain life on earth without the direct Presence of God when God has finished creating.

Now God is separating the light from darkness. All too often our human minds want too keep it all so simple and just say one thing happen here and one thing happened there. But God is accomplishing a great deal on Day 1 and continues to create Earth Standard Time. This separation of light and darkness is done two ways.
First there is the rotation of the core which spins in the same direction as the earth as we know it today. But the core spins about two thirds a second faster. While geologist are divided about the origin of the earth, there are things in general agreement. Geologists believe that as the fetal earth is cooling, heavy elements sank to the middle and lighter elements floated to the top which, under the guidance of God, results in a multi layer planet. These layers developing would separate the light of the core from the rest of the earth.

The big question asked is what makes the earth spin? While investigating this I originally thought that the spinning of the core would cause the shapeless mass to also move. Sounds logical enough. But to explain this in science is not easy as scientific consensus seems to be dead set against this idea. So it is necessary to present both views as trying to prove the core aids in the earth's rotation could take me a life time to prove with no guaranteed results.

The concept of the inner core moving the unformed, unfilled earth, would seem to work mechanically, almost as gears and pulleys work. I'm no scientist but this does seem to make some sense. However, it isn't the only thing that makes sense.

The law of inertia cannot be overlooked here. In the video linked below, there are clues provided as to how the earth began rotating. You will see right from the start of this video a very large two and a half ton granite sphere floating on a thin layer of water which is turning the whole earth.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQxeutcYP6I&list=PLfgT2HoxYJp2L-zUsPoMp7nsUOjkHL...

2 Peter 3:5 says,

👉 "For they willingly ignore that, by the word of God the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed standing out of the water and in the water."

These waters (v.2) are what the earth was made out of. This The separation of these waters have not taken place yet. While these waters may be suspended in space, this newly formed sphere is not. The earth is still resting on the watery abyss in space, but not suspended on its own until Day 2. As the core spins the compression of heat gives the balloon effect and the earth receives its shape. God drew the compass on the face of the deep, separating the boundaries of the earth from the watery abyss. Though the fetal earth is still standing out of water and in water.

👉"I form the light and create darkness;
    I make peace and create calamity;
    I, the Lord, do all these things."
  ~ Isaiah 45:7

👉"When He prepared the heavens, I was there,
    when He drew a circle on the face of the deep."
  ~ Proverbs 8:27

On Day 1 God drew the circle on the deep as a building engineer makes designs on constructing a new building. The Scaffolding is up and the shape of the circles of years is now complete. But the earth, though rotating on the waters, cannot yet stand on its own.

God created the earth to be inhabitable. Without the earth's core life cannot be sustained on the earth. From Day 1 the core was created and the Magnetic Field was charged up. The Divine Chef used the core to create matter such as molten rock and soil -- which are forming as the earth takes shape as clay to the seal (Job 38:14). As the earth inflates, per se, and takes its shape, matter on earth begins to separate the core from the earth. The earth, which still stands on a watery abyss in space, begins to rotate. This rotation of earth marks the creation of earth standard time.
_______________________________________________
🌎The Duration of Day 1

The duration of Day 1 is uncertain but its not billions of years. We are talking about God creating and not random chance. When the earth began to rotate is when the day-night cycle begins. This day-night cycle, though still incomplete without the sun, is measured by the earth's rotation. This rotation, however, is twice as fast as it is today. This is because there is no lunar gravity on the earth. So the earth may have completed one full rotation in 10 to 12 hours. Though if we estimate the time it took for God to create the universe we may be talking about 24 hours or maybe 36 hours. Though as for the earth, its first Day would have been shorter than it is now. The moon slows down the rotation of the earth so its only common sense science that the fetal earth rotated faster. Some contend that it was motionless while others say the rotation was slower. Though considering how the moon controls the spin of the earth, slowing it down, scientific consensus strongly favors a faster rotation without the moon which makes perfect sense.

So the exact duration of Day 1 is not known. But God is not slow and clumsy. So the duration of Day 1 is probably about a 24 hour span of time or longer (but not billions of years). Earth time after Day 1 is 10 to 12 hours. Thus the first 3 Days of earth are shorter than a 24 hour day. God is in the process of creating earth-time...and this time where light and darkness separate are gauged by the earth's rotation.

The next article will cover Day 2 of creation which will be 10 to 12 hours of God's Power. God will separate the waters from the water in the earth as well as outside the earth's newly formed sphere. God creates the earth's atmosphere during this separation of waters. The magnetic field now operational but not to full power as the core is still newly created and soil hasn't appeared on earth yet.
______________________________________________
☀️Why Wasn't The Sun Created On Day 1?

In Genesis 1:2 the earth is just a watery blob of some sort in a newly created universe. Had God brought in the big guns right away, creating a huge sun, then naturally the radiation of the sun, with its scorching heat, will scorch the waters with nothing to protect the earth with. God too smart to waste time on imperfection. He created everything in stages as to create the natural order of what will become our earth as well as our entire galaxy and solar system. Evolutionists claim the sun should come first. Congratulations evolutionists! Your theory just killed the earth in its most fetal stages of development! The earth is now dead and you are back to the drawing board! With the sun first the earth has no time to develop and strengthen its atmosphere. The Genesis account, on the other hand, makes perfect sense! God creates in stages and doesn't want to bother with the big boy sun yet. God knows the sun before the earth is self-defeating.

🌎A Scientific Harmonization of Creation Week: Day 2

INTRODUCTION

Day 2 of creation is always very badly represented by the flat earth movement. In this article I will present a theory on Day 2 of creation based both on Scripture and 1st century Jewish and Christian witnesses. But before we dive into that lets review a little the events that took place on Day 1.

▪️Gen.1:1 -- God created the universe and the earth was conceived. The universe in verse 1 contains all the ingredients God will use to craft His masterpiece.  I believe that God created the waters of the universe, electromagnetic radiation and photons as well as gravity on Day 1. The universe at this point is a very dark place devoid of all stars.

▪️Gen.1:2 -- After creating the universe and what would become the earth, God's Spirit is now moving over the watery abyss which is an earth that hasn't even reached the fetal stage of creation. The earth is unformed, void, and invisible due to the darkness of space combined with this clear watery deep that is about to become our planet.

▪️Gen.1:3 -- The general consensus among creationists is that the light created in verse 3 is electromagnetic radiation and photons. And while this explanation is not something anyone should find offensive or absurd (as it is a reasonable explanation), I believe the explanation assumes that the light created on Day 1 was for the universe and not on the earth. So I see a small problem with that explanation because if you remove all the stars from the universe you have a very dark place. And while I am no physicist and will freely admit I lack an advanced knowledge of physics, I do believe that common sense physics would place electromagnetic radiation and photons in verse 1 where God creates all matter and energy in this newly created space we call the universe.
Verse 2 also indicates that the light created was for the earth and not another extension of what was created in verse 1. Therefore I have presented what I believe is a better solution which better harmonizes with basic science logic. For God in verse 3 is about to give life to the earth and this life will be a light that will soon become the earth's pilot light which is the earth's core. This newly created core would give off an abundance of light in the deep that is now our fetal earth. The pilot is lit, and the heart of the earth is now beating -- spinning.

▪️Gen.1:4-5 -- God sees that the light is good and now begins to create earth standard time by giving the earth its shape and rotation.

Proverbs 8:27,

"When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth" (KJV).

"When He prepared the heavens, I was there,
    when He drew a circle on the face of the deep" (MEV).

God molds the earth as clay to the seal, and from here the earth is resting on the watery deep and rotation begins. The scientific consensus here of exactly what caused the earth to rotate is still very primitive, barbaric, and solely based on theoretical physics which generally assumes other planets smashed into each other that caused the earth to spin 🤣
Then the question is whether or not the spinning core caused the shapeless mass to take its shape after God drew out the great circle upon the face of the depth? However, this question, as I believe, is satisfactorily solved since the earth is not yet suspended by itself and God still has His scaffolding (the waters) around the fetal earth. The earth, now resting on the waters begins to spin and the law of inertia is now born.

So now we move on...
_________________________________________
🌎Day 2 -- Genesis 1:6-8,

"Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 So God made the expanse and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day."

_______________________________________________

🌎Ancient Witnesses Allure to Job 26:7 on Day 2

The reason why early witnesses are consulted is for the purpose of increasing our understanding of how these passages were understood by the ancients. While these early witnesses should never be used as another form of Scripture, they are very useful to our understanding when you see Jewish and Christian leaders reach a common understanding. And in the case of Day 2 of creation nothing quite compares to how well Josephus and Clement basically say the same thing. To me this is consistency coming from reliable sources.

✅Clement of Rome (35 - 99 A.D.)

“Thus, by His transcendent might He established the heavens, and by His incomprehensible understanding He ordered them: the earth He separated from the water now encircling it, and firmly grounded it on the unshakable foundation of His own will” (St.Clement of Rome, Ancient Christian Writers Vol.1, 33:3).

✅Flavius Josephus (37-100 A.D.)

“After this, on the second day, he placed the heaven over the whole world, and separated it from the other parts; and he determined it should stand by itself. He also placed a crystalline [firmament] round it, and put it together in a manner agreeable to the earth, and fitted it for giving moisture and rain, and for affording the advantage of dews” (Antiquity 1:30).

Lets see what these two quotes have in common:

▪️Clement: "the earth He separated from the water now encircling it."
▪️Josephus: "and separated it from the other parts"

The waters of the sphere would have been encircling the earth from the movement the earth began to spin.
The waters are separated from "the other parts" of the waters "now encircling it." This includes the waters not circling the newly created sphere as well as the waters within the earth's sphere.

▪️Clement: "and firmly grounded it on the unshakable foundation of His own"
▪️Josephus: "he placed the heaven over the whole world"
▪️Josephus: "and he determined it should stand by itself"

Here both Clement and Josephus are very clearing alluring to Job 26:7,

"He stretches out the North over empty space,
and suspends the earth over nothing at all."
https://www.facebook.com/AnsweringFlatEarthLies/posts/717149912073573?__tn__=K-R

Simply stated, when the ancients read Day 2 they understood it as separating the waters outside of the earth's sphere as well as inside the earth. Thus the earth on Day 2 is now suspended in space over nothing at all. The waters of the earth and in the earth also separated.

"To Him who laid out the earth above the waters,
For His mercy endures forever" (Psalm 136:6, NKJV).

Though some early church fathers such as St.Augustine, find the concept of an earth resting on the waters before Day 2 absurd. These contentions are all based on the knowledge of elements and weights they had back in the 4th century. While they all understood and trusted Job 26:7, they still had very little knowledge about the force of gravity itself. That knowledge wouldn't come to us until Newton. However, it is very clear to my mind that Job 26:7 goes with Day 2.

The waters separated most definitely include the waters within the earth itself. The expanse is meant to be understood as a space between. There is more than one expanse and all the church fathers agree with that. Outer space is the greater expanse. The Webster's 1828 Dictionary defines "expanse" as

"EXPANSE, noun expans'. [Latin expansum.] A spreading; extend; a wide extent of space or body; as the expanse of heaven."

The expanse covers two things:

1. A large space in between land and sky -- the open expanse.
2. A large extended area of the sea, sky or outer space.

✅The New Strong's Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible

"H7549. רָקִיעַ râqîyaʻ, raw-kee'-ah; from H7554; properly, an expanse, i.e. the firmament or (apparently) visible arch of the sky:—firmament.

(1) Raqiya means that which is fixed and steadfast, rather than that which is solid. (1a) The application to the heavenly bodies is simple and beautful: (b) they are not fickle and uncertain in their movements, but are regulated by a law that they cannot pass over. (2) It comes from raqa (7554) which means spread out. The firmament, then is that which is spread or stretched out--hence an expanse. Thus it is extended and fixed, or fixed space. (3) The interplanetary spaces are measured out by God, and though the stars are ever moving, they generally preserve fixed relative positions; their movements are not erratic, not in straight lines, but in orbits, and thus, though ever changing, they are always the same."
_______________________________________________
🌎Genesis 1:8

"God called the expanse Heaven..."

During the separation of waters from waters, God separated the waters and out of these waters created two things:

1. Breathable air; a space where airflow travels. This is the area between land and the earthly sky.

2. The earthly sky., aka, the first heaven.

God created the atmosphere from the separation of waters. Thus God now called the expanse Shamayin (heaven). The Shamayin of verse 1 is already created. Now God creates a planet that will be inhabitable.

"Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein" (Isaiah 42:5).

"For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else" (45:18).

With the atmosphere now created, the fetal earth is now building up the magnetosphere caused by the core and the earth's rotation. The atmospheric layers of the earth are still fragile moments after creation. The core of the earth acts like a generator which needs a little time, per se, to charge up the earth. The "North" (Job 26:7) is now being magnetized by the core which causes our magnetic field. Though while the expanse of the sky now exist, below the sky is nothing but water. Land has not yet appeared on the earth.

Evolutionists have this real big problem explaining the origin of water and assume comets from space bombarded our planet and caused water to appear on earth. 🤣 You have to wonder how this water could stay on this earth with the sun pounding on the earth from the start?? I do not care how difficult it is to swallow the explanation I provide here - It cannot be nowhere near as disastrous as the evolutionary model of the early earth. Seriously folks, its a very clumsy and barbaric explanation! Any water these comets would bring to the earth would be all scorched by an earth that is unable to develop an atmosphere with the sun constantly raping the earth of all things which evolutionists try to explain the origin of life with. There would be no pond for life to evolve from. The sun would molest the pond and the waters would dissipate, evaporate, and be no more. Pardon me if my science terminology mirrors Emory Tate's (R.I.P.) chess terminology. Vulgar as it may be but its still a Triple Exclam!!!

From the Biblical perspective, no explanation for water is necessary.

"For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water" (2 Peter 3:5).

So who you gonna believe: the Biblical worldview where water makes up the universe. or the evolutionist worldview where trying to explain the origin of water has led to laughter even among their own ranks. You decide..

🌎A Scientific Harmonization of Creation Week: Day 3

INTRODUCTION

In this presentation of Day 3 we will see how God's work during the first two days has been perfectly planned out. God knows what He's doing. God began with nothing and created all the ingredients to create planets in verse 1. His work is not counter-productive. God is accomplishing the goal He set out to do from verse 1 of Day 1.

Here on Day 3, the earth as seen from space is the only object in the universe. Its very blue at this stage if you saw it from orbit with a sun to shine on it. There is only clouds and water on the earth. There no land you would see from orbit. However, since there is no sun or stars or other planets, this blue earth is still in the darkness of space. The only natural light on earth is coming from the core which is producing the magnetic field which is strengthening the atmosphere. This natural light will be dim on the earth...too dim to matter. But as God's Presence is on the earth, light is not an issue any believer should be concerned about. Though as there is no land visible to the earth's surface. The core has had time to pressurize and lighter elements have floated to the top. Now the earth is ready for Day 3.

*Note: The object of this creation series is to understand the order in which God created the elements which made everything we see in the natural order of things. God did not make the roof of a house first. He began with the most fundamental steps necessary to produce a planet that would sustain life. My personal goal is to understand the order of things created and provide a basic understanding of creation week.

🌎Genesis 1:9-13,

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

🌎Commentary on Genesis 1:9-10,

If we go by the evolutionist worldview we would have to account for billions of years for any of this to happen. But God is right there, creating. He is watching His work carefully and is wasting no time. From verse 3 of Day 1, God created the light that would give life to the earth itself. The earth is a living planet thanks to God's work during creation week.
The core God created was no small thing. Its essential to the earth and without it our planet may not have land and/or be a gas giant. While Jupiter and Saturn are believed to have cores, those cores may not be large enough in proportion to the size of the two gas giants which could explain why they are gas giants. But God wasn't has concerned about creating those planets for habitation like He was the earth. At this point, on Day 3, it is reasonable to believe none of the other planets exist. The only object in space is the earth. While some may reasonably ask about the formation of the galaxy, it seems clear that Scripture has the creation of our galaxy on Day 4.

God is creating in the formation of land. He created the core to aid in that formation of land. From his creation of the core things like molten rock and lava would form what will become on Day 3 as nutrient enriched soil. The planet Mars can't grow life because the core of the planet is dead. This means the soil on Mars is devoid of nutrients which makes planting life, even in warmer temperatures, impossible.

🌎Commentary on Genesis 1:11-12.

The soil of the earth is now formed and enriched. God now creates the DNA of all plant life and the seeds of life which provide a lush green covering over the earth. The plant life includes trees, of course. The earth is now being oxygen enriched on Day 3. However, plants need time to germinate so God's Spirit is aiding the process. God knows these seeds of life are fragile and allowing the earth a few moments to marinate, per se, before bring out the big boy (sun), is essential to the success of all plant life. God's Spirit Is the Gardener that is all that is needed.

🌎Commentary on Genesis 1:13,

"And the evening and the morning were the third day."

God began creating earth time in verse 4-5 of Day 1. Without the moon's gravitation pull on the earth, the length of a day would be approximately 10 to 12 hours. This is at least how we would understand this from a modern scientific perspective. I think it may be unwise to be too overly dogmatic about the 24 hour days of Days 1--3. Verse 1 of Day 1 is of an unknown length. Though since God doesn't seem to be wasting any time getting to work on creation, we can still safely say that the universe is much younger than what evolutionists say. Now evolutionists need the billions of years for the purpose of explaining the origin of everything in terms of strict naturalistic process. And indeed, if everything we see in the natural order of things were the accidental product of evolution, then everything from the universe to the earth itself is billions of years old. But with the power of God in control of creation time is not an issue with God. For it was God Who established time throughout the universe as well as the earth.

The Young Earth Creationists are the most trusted sources when it comes to origin-science. But they might want to reconsider the time and duration of Gen.1:4-13. For this duration may be shorter than what YEC believes.

Another thing that must be noted here is that the earth during its fetal stages of development is a violent place, where water is a force without a leash. Since there is no moon to control tidal forces, water on Day 3 is a violent force. However, the land that has appeared is dominate as the waters were gathered together to one place. This means that during the early earth more land would have been visible from earth's orbit than water. This is something both evolutionists and creationists generally agree with (although for different reasons). The waters that once completely covered the earth, are now underground for the exception of seas. The waters underground will become the fountains of the deep that burst open during the Flood.
