And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
(Genesis 1:5 AMP)
Is this a pattern of what LIfe on Earth is going to be like ?:
…and God named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night”.
WAR between Light and Darkness-
DAy and Night-
Truth and lie-
Good and Evil-
Life and Death..
God and the devil-
…Us and evil….
Probably evil/darkness had been reigning in that “region” of Gods creation – maybe God let it be for a while….then when the Timing was right- the Holy Spirit began to brood over it ready to create …..to infiltrate ….to influence ….to invade…to take dominion…
Or maybe the Holy SPirit was always there -restraining darkness and awaiting for GOds timing??
First thing God does, is to SPEAK LIGHT….then once done, He SEPARATES it!
Then, by naming it – He calls it ” Day” ,giving it its purpose!
What is the purpose of Light?
Jesus said “I am the light of the world “!
Then Jesus spoke out again, “I am the light of the world. The one who follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”john8/112
So are we , What is our purpose?
-Evening passed and morning came — that was the first day.
Balance is set-
Chaos no more !?
Evil pushed back …territory gained for Good…Evil reigning no more….?
Gods presence is piercing -invading this dark atmosphere!
I am only in verse 5, and it obvious that there is “something” not of a God in the picture!
And because I already know the end of the story-I know that “this thing” will only be defeated once for All in “Revelation chapter show-down”!
I have the impression that the first steps into creating Earth are spiritual – even tho it looks physical -the underneath is very important …
For example This LIGHT ,that GOd spoke out is not natural – it is NOt the Sun! Not the light that is part of earth living system!
It is a spiritual light ( as discussed in G1/3-4)
This light was spoken against the darkness that was reigning …proving that the Darkness in G1/2 is not a physical one …
Hence why God used a Spiritual “weapon” …
Quite interestingly it is only in verse 16 that the Sun is introduced….
The Light used all throughout creation it’s Gods light…just to show that even tho, this world is going to be very physical-tangible -it is the “invisible “God and only God that sustains it!
The lesson is, even after the Sun is created .Gods light is what really sustains it All…
Maybe there’s a shift that took place once the sun is created ,as God prepares to bring MAn into the picture…..maybe the spiritual world- visible evidence of God – has gone into hiding now…and will be available only by faith…..?!!.
God is the battery…everything else are inanimate tools!
God is called the LIGHT of lights!#selah
Gods light is mainly what keeps the world out of darkness!
There He calls the Light : Day, and darkness :Night….
Would that mean that before the sun and moon were …the main invisible attribute of the make up of a day on earth is Gods light and not the Sunlight?
Behind the sunlight there is Gods light sustaining the sunlight ?
But then what about the -night ?
If darkness has been turned into “night-ness” what then??
Hmmmm I think that I have just confused myself ….lol?..
Once thing for sure though , I understand why there’s an element of great fear attached to the “Night”!
Sooooo , Woahhhhhh—there it is -Day One -of Earth!
God is setting everything up and about to create Humanity!
The question is “what is the Purpose of it?”
We have God on one hand and ” something not of God, something else not yet defined” on the other hand”……and all of that before humans are even part of the picture!!!
We don’t understand it all but we gotta believe that God has a plan, and it’s a good one!
And Goodness will have the Last word!
