GENESIS 1/7 The FIRMament!

What is this?
—And God made the firmament [the expanse] …..

What is a Firmament? It looks like it’s something in between the waters that God sliced in 2 !

—….And separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. …

Where are the waters above the firmament now?… Is it outer space, is it outer outer space.
The bible talks often about 1,2,and third heaven..any connection?

Is it a rigid ” thing” that separates 2 worlds, ours and something else ….?
After all it is called a FIRMament!...
So it must be a solid “thing” like a demarcation “line” that God has set there!

Some scholars talk about an invisible dome?

Those waters have been completely separated , one for Earth use -surrounding us-and the other one …..?!?!?

In context and from the beginning of my reading – the bible is clear that there is sth wrong in those waters….so maybe it has to do with separating good and evil..something!

Our God loves to separate……

Anyway ,this is a part of the second day of creation, and the interesting thing about it ,is that God doesn’t mention the usual ” it was good” on that day….so ,there we go, food for thought……
