Genesis 1:1 - 1:5

 

Related imageWhat better place to start in God's Word than in Genesis, especially for the new student. The word Genesis means in the Greek, 'generation', 'creation'. The word Genesis is not originally the Hebrew title, but Bereshith instead, which is "in the beginning", the first words of The Book. All Scripture is taken from the King James Authorized Version of 1611. We are going to move slow, digging deep and hard in these first few Chapters, so stay with me, and check me out with your Strong's Concordance.

 

Genesis 1:1 (KJV) In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 

The Hebrew has 'eth' before heaven and earth, emphasising each "the" article before both. This treatment makes a distinction between the states of the earth in Genesis 1:2. In other words, as we will find out in the next verse, the creation of the heaven (heavens, plural in the Hebrew), and the earth, is the very first forming of the universe by God (Elōhīm here in Hebrew). When God accomplished this, no one truly knows how long ago, but scientists can document that this old earth is literally thousands and thousands of years old. There is no disagreement here with God's Word.

 

Genesis 1:2 (KJV) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

 

 This verse speaks of a different condition of the earth than in Genesis 1:1. Stay with me, I'm going to document it. The word 'was' in Hebrew is 'hayah', meaning "to become, to exist, or come to pass". This word 'was' is in italics in much of The Old Testament, as it was added by the King James translators, because there is no verb 'to be' in the Hebrew. (This is another subject for another time.) 2  So this word 'hayah' in the Hebrew should be interpreted as 'became', i.e., past tense. The phrase 'without form' in the Hebrew is 'tohuw', meaning to 'lie waste, a desolation, vain' (Strong's no.8414).  And the word 'void' is 'bohuw' in the Hebrew, meaning 'an undistinguishable ruin'.(Strong's no. 922).
    In other words, the earth became a 'desolation', a 'ruin'. You'll find in Isaiah 45:18 that God said He did not create the earth "tohuw" (the Hebrew word tohuw appears there again as 'in vain', meaning a waste, a desolation). Well what does this mean? It means that something caused that 'desolate' condition upon the ancient earth.  God did not make it that way.  What could have caused the beautiful earth that God originally set up in the beginning to become a 'waste', a 'desolation'?  The Books of 2 Peter and Jeremiah give us more clues as to this state of ruin.  In 2 Peter 3, Peter makes a distinction between 'the world that then was' verses 'the heavens and earth which are now.' Let's turn to 2 Peter 3:5.

 

2 Peter 3:5 (KJV) For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

 

    Peter is explaining that in the latter days scoffers at The Word would be saying: "It's not going to happen, Jesus isn't going to come, everything continues just as before," kind of like, "Ah yeah, every new millennium we get the same old bunch saying the end is near...”  But Peter wished for God's people not to be ignorant of The Word, and he is explaining that the first creation of the heavens and the earth (of old), were by The Word (Logos), that is to say through Christ (Hebrew Elohim (see John 1), and that the earth was 'standing' (sat in place) out of water and in water. This means that the earth then existed, it had already been created, as in Gen.1:1. I know that these verses are taught by many to mean the time of Noah's flood, but stay with me, for Peter is going to show us the difference, in the Greek.

 

2 Peter 3:6 “Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished

 

    This word 'world' is kosmos in the Greek, which does not mean soil like the earth, but an 'orderly arrangement' or order of things, i.e., the first creation, a time, an age that God referred to in Isaiah 45:18 (see Strong's no.2889).

http://www.godsplan.org.uk/2%20Peter%203.htm

Isaiah 45:18 (KJV) “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.”

 

Well what is this word 'perished'?  It is apollumi in the Greek, and means 'to destroy fully, make a ruin', roughly equal to the word tohuw in Hebrew (Strong's no.622). This is not speaking of Noah's flood, for apollumi means everything was destroyed, the earth literally wiped clean of all its inhabitants, no man, no birds, no Ark, nothing, a desolation. This Greek word apollumi was used all throughout the New Testament to also mean those who will be 'blotted' out in the eternity, in the lake of fire. http://www.rethinkinghell.com/2012/10/the-meaning-of-apollumi-in-the-synoptic-gospels/. The word Apollyon, which is another name for Satan written in Rev.9:11, is derived from the root of apollumi, 'to perish', and furthermore, that's how we know that 'the son of perdition' as written in 2 Thess.2 is Satan himself, not Judas. (Strong's nos.623 & 622. Are you checking me out in a Strong's Concordance yet?). It was the rebellion of Satan during that first earth age that caused God to destroy that time. That's why one of Satan's nicknames (Apollyon) is tied to 2 Peter 3:6, and 'the world that then was'. “An enemy has caused this.”

THE INTERPRETATION IS THIS:

 

Genesis 1:1 (KJV) In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 

It is the first setting up of the universe in the beginning, the first earth age, the time of dinosaurs and fossil remains http://www.godsplan.org.uk/2%20Peter%203.htm. This is when The Elohim created everything, all souls included. Jehovah the Father spoke; and the Elohim, also the other angels helped to create.

 

 

Job 40:15—24 (KJV)

Related image                 15 “Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox

16 “Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.”

17 “He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.”

18 “His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.”

19 “He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.”

20 “Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.”

21 “He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.”

22 “The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.”

23 “Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.”

24 “He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.”

 

 

 

Genesis 1:2 (KJV) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

 

This is the desolate condition caused by 'the overthrow', or rebellion of Satan against God. It is written in Ezekiel 28 that Satan (his symbolic name there is the King of Tyrus, and prince of Tyrus), was originally 'perfect in his ways' before 'iniquity' was found in him. It also states that Satan was a covering cherub, and corrupted because of his beauty, and that he coveted the position of God's Throne. You'll find in

Revelation 12:3-4, that a third of the stars (angels) followed him during that period of overthrow. This condition of ruin over the earth is what caused God to 'scrub' or destroy that first earth age, and end the original first state of all creation, on the earth.
    The Truth is that God's Word must account for discoveries and anomalies dealing with prehistoric remains, fossils and dinosaur bones, ancient buried civilizations, mammoths found in Alaska with buttercups in their mouths &c, frozen instantly in time, etc., and God's Word does account for themThe discrepancy is in traditions and old folk tales handed down from generation to generation by the uneducated in God's Word, as well as Satan’s interference.. Am I being too harsh on those who keep handing down the same old false traditions? Not really, because our Father has revealed His Truth to us in His Letter. He accounts for all time. So try to understand that there was a previous earth age, even before the flood of Noah, when this whole earth was a paradise, the original state that God intended his creation to remainhttp://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm (Paradise Lost by John Milton).

In that verse of Isaiah 45:18 (KJV), God said that He created the earth 'to be inhabited'. The myth that eternity is going to be a brand new universe, living up in the clouds instead of on the earth, is not in The Word (God's dwelling place will still be on this earth in the eternity, although the 'height' of The New Jerusalem situated on earth will ascend up to heaven from earth in the form of a cube. See Ezekiel and Rev.21:16 for the dimensions). God is merely going to 'cleanse', or 'renew' this earth again, as He did after the time of Satan's rebellion. Let's turn to Jeremiah 4 to find out more about the destruction of that first earth age.

 

Revelation 21:16 (KJV) And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

3 feet = 1 yard.

1760 yards = 1 mile

10 chains = 1 furlong

8 furlongs = 1 mile 

twelve thousand furlongs = 1500 miles

Which makes the city 15002 miles?

Jeremiah 4:22 (KJV) “For My people is foolish, they have not known Me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge

 

This fourth Chapter of Jeremiah is about God being angry with His children, because they were following all sorts of idols and abominations, instead of Him. He is saying that since His people do not search for Him in truth, etc., they thus have no knowledge of the Truth, for to know God's Truth, including that first earth age, is to want to do well. They don't even remember that first 'desolate' state of the earth of old times, and He's getting ready to give them a little reminding of that wasted condition that was a result of Satan's rebellion, to let them know that He's going to put this old earth through another 'trembling' again. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm
If you began reading this fourth Chapter of Jeremiah, and then got to these next few verses and feel a big subject change or shift just happened, that means it's time to really think about what our Father is trying to tell us.

 

Jeremiah 4:23 (KJV)   I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.

 

It is even mentioned in the New Testament in Peter, but no one researches it.

 

2 Peter 3:5-6 (KJV)

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

 

Here's are the words 'without form' and 'void' again, the 'tohu Va bohu' covered in Genesis 1:2.  So God is bringing into remembrance that time of Genesis 1:2, to them, and to you, if you only have 'eyes to see'. That there was 'no light' means that Satan's rebellion had caused a state of utter darkness, spiritually. Consider this verse in…

Jeremiah 13:16 (KJV) "Give glory to the LORD your God, before He cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, He turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness."

 

You will find in Rev.6:8 and Hebrews 2:14, that another name for Satan, the devil, is 'Death', so this phrase 'the shadow of death' is referring to Satan, so again, remember that the earth's state of 'desolation' in that first earth age was due to Satan's mutiny against God. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/deathswallowedup.htm

 

Jeremiah 4:24 (KJV) “I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly

 

The Lord really shook the earth to end that first earth age.  Might this 'trembling' have caused the 16-21 degree tilt of the earth's axis that caused the instant arctic freeze, and the 90 mile error between the geographic and magnetic pole?  'All the hills moved lightly' means the whole earth was affected, not just partly. Since God's Word is 'Perfect', it accounts for all natural phenomena that happened in the past history of this old earth, and for what is to come.
Some might be thinking these Scriptures are talking about the flood of Noah's time. Indeed God cleansed the earth from the filth on it with a flood during Noah's day, but not with a trembling that made all the hills move lightly. The latter part of Hebrews 12 gives a hint to a future time when God will bring another destruction upon this earth similar to the one of Genesis 1:2 Let's go to Hebrews 12 for a moment:

 

Hebrews 12:25—26 (KJV) 

25 “See that ye refuse not Him That speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused Him That spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from Him That speaketh from heaven:”
26 “Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, "Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven." http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm

Paul is quoting this from Haggai 2:6, which also has parallel passages in Joel 3:16, Isaiah 13:13. It's about a yet future shaking of this earth at Christ's second coming (see Zech.14; Rev.16:18).

 

Haggai 2:6 (KJV) For thus saith the Lord of hosts; “Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land

 

Joel 3:16 (KJV) “The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of Israel

 

Isaiah 13:13 (KJV) “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger

 

Zechariah 14: 1--21 (KJV)

01 “Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm

02 “For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.” (Residue: something that remains after a part is removed, disposed of). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/nationshalrise.htm

03 “Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battlehttp://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm

04 “And His feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/defence.htm

05 “And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.” http://cof.quantumfuturegroup.org/events/2413

06 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark

07 “But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.”

08 “And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be

09 “And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and His name one http://www.godsplan.org.uk/spiritualmaterial.htm

10 “All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresseshttp://www.godsplan.org.uk/wheredowego%20.htm

11 “And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited

12 “And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.”

13 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.”

14 “And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.”

15 “And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.”

16 “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.”

17 “And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain

18 “And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles

19 “This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.”

20 “In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, Holiness Unto The Lord; and the pots in the Lord's house shall be like the bowls before the altar.”

21 “Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the Lord of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hostshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canaan

 

A 1692 depiction of Canaan, by Philip LeaRevelation16:18 (KJV) “And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.”  http://www.godsplan.org.uk/revelation_%20revealed.htm

 

Hebrews 12:27—28  (KJV)  

27 “And this word, "Yet once more", signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.”
28 “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear [Reverence]:”

The event Paul is talking about in that Hebrews Scripture is about the future coming of the Day of The LORD, when Christ comes to rule on earth with a rod of iron. The "Yet once more" phrase reveals there was another previous shaking of this earth, and it was on the same level of destruction that is to occur at Christ's future second coming. That did not happen in Noah's time. It happened before, when Satan fell from Heaven in rebellion against God and drew one-third of the angels into rebellion with him.  http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm (It is important to read the entire link).That is the connection our Heavenly Father is also making with these Jeremiah 4:23-28 verses.

 

Jeremiah 4:25 (KJV)  “I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.”

 

 This verse is revealing to us that man, and all creation that existed during that first earth age, was gone from the earth, even all the birds. No Noah's ark, no animals, absolutely nothing, thus this was an event that took place long before the days of Noah. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/2%20Peter%203.htm

 

Jeremiah 4:26 (KJV) I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by His fierce anger.

 

All the cities of that first earth age were destroyed, and the 'fruitful place' was a 'wilderness' (desert). Again, this is not the flood of Noah's time, especially since the previous verse tells us that 'there was no man', i.e., not even Noah's ark. Possibly the reason why it is difficult for most people to understand the existence of cities and people living on the earth, in spiritual bodies and not flesh, during the first earth age, is due to tradition, and the fact that many people cannot think in the spiritual.  Many traditions teach in a way that heaven in God's eternity is not upon this earth, when The Word says that it is. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/wheredowego%20.htm
Many would also teach that God's people are just going to 'fly away' into the sky, when that word 'air' in I Thess.4:17 should be properly translated 'spirit', the 'breath', i.e., the spiritual body, which represents the casting off of this flesh age, and the destruction of all works by man on this earth when Christ returns for the second coming.  http://www.godsplan.org.uk/earthlytabernacle.htm  (Take a Strong's Concordance and translate the word 'air' in;

 

I Thessalonians 4:17 (KJV) “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air [spirit]: and so shall we ever be with the Lord

 

for yourself, then read again.)

 

Genesis 2:7 (KJV) “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul http://www.godsplan.org.uk/internalspirit.htm

 

I Corinthians 15 (KJV) Read the whole chapter.

 

The translation of 'air' to 'spirit', or 'breath of life', is supported by Paul  where he taught that on the "last trump" we shall all be changed into a spiritual body, casting off this flesh, as also written in 2 Peter 3:10, Psalms 97, and Nahum 1.
You will find a more graphic version of the casting off of the flesh body of the deceived in Zechariah 14. There are many more Old Testament references to The Lord's Day when this 'change' takes place. They all point to the destruction of this world (second earth age) by 'fire'
http://godsplan.org.uk/fleshage.htm,  for you'll find in Hebrews 12 that God is a 'consuming fire'. Satan's little propaganda department works overtime in trying to teach that this day of destruction by fire is caused by all other means except what is written. God is The One Who will do it, and not man. If you remember in the Book of Daniel how Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were protected by The Lord in that furnace, heated seven times hotter (spiritual completion) than necessary, then don't worry if you're in Christ, for we shall not be harmedTheir garments didn't even smell of smoke when they came out of that hot furnace.
Don't confuse God's 'consuming fire' with the 'lake of fire'. The 'lake of fire' happens at the end of God's Millennium, the thousand-year reign of Christ and His elect on earth that begins when Christ returns for the second Advent. Those who hear The Word then, without any distraction or obstruction, and still choose to follow Satan instead of our Father, will be cast into that 'lake of fire' along with the 'dragon', or Satan. (See Rev.20 - 22). Let's continue back in Genesis 1.

   Back to Gen.1:2, and let's cover the last part of that verse:

 

Genesis 1:2 (KJV) “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

 

This word 'Spirit' is 'ruwach' in Hebrew, and It means 'wind, by resemblance breath' (Strong's no. 7307). This is when God's Spirit 'spoke', starting the cleansing of that state of 'ruin' and began this fallen earth age we are now in. This act is also referred to in John 3:3-8, (Romans 8 It is very important to the understanding of this chapter to read the whole of it.) You'll also see this 'ruwach' translated as the 'four winds' in several places in the King James Version.

John 3:3-8 (KJV)

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”.

4 Nicodemus saith unto Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?”

5 Jesus answered, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”

6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

7 “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

8 “The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”

 

Romans 8:11 (KJV) “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.”

 

I call your attention to this phrase "the face of the waters". The word 'face' is simply the Hebrew word 'paniym' meaning 'in the presence of' (Strong's 6440). This means God's Spirit was before the presence of the waters. This is important, because you will find there is no mention of God creating earth matter past Genesis 1:1. These "waters" were outstretched over the whole earth, covering all of it, and that's how God destroyed that time of old to end Satan's rebellion. Even at this verse, the earth is under all those "waters".

 

Genesis 1:3 (KJV)  And God said, "Let there be light:" and there was light.

 

Genesis 1:4 (KJV)  And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

 

Genesis 1:5 (KJV)  And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

 

Many of you may not understand this, but, this 'light' and 'darkness' here, is not the dividing of a 24-hour period that we all know in this life. You'll notice that God did not create the separation between earth 'day' and 'night' yet, that is to say, the star called our 'sun' and the planet that orbits the earth called the 'moon', until Gen.1: 14 (KJV) We are still here in Gen.1: 5 on the first 'day' or God's period of time (to God, a 'day' is equal to...see;

 

2 Peter 3:8 (KJV) “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

 

 Notice that 'Day' and 'Night' are in capitals. Here in verse 5, 'Day' and 'Night' should be understood as separations between 'good' and 'evil', i.e., Christ and Satan, for Christ is that Light, and Satan is that 'darkness'. Well how can this be, you may ask?  Turn with me to:

 

Isaiah 60:19—20  (KJV)  

19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself:  for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

 

Hey, this hasn't happened yet friend!  It is too bad that many refuse to believe that there will be no 'sun' or 'moon' in the LORD's eternity. I guess God's Word is just too 'far out' for them. This is mentioned again in Rev.21 and 22. The eternity, or last earth age will be the 'putting back' of the original state which God made His creation, “Paradise regained” therefore, in that first earth age, there was no 'sun' or 'moon', because God was that 'Light'. There was no 'darkness', literally! Try to imagine dividing 'time' when you don't have a sun or moon, no sunlight, no moonlight, only 'Light'. YOU HAVE TO THINK WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL MIND TO UNDERSTAND THIS. You can go on a long philosophical trip to nowhere thinking about this with the 'flesh' mind. The flesh cannot comprehend it

That's why our Father hid this message about the three earth ages from those who don't care to work in our Father's WordChances are, unless you dig for yourselves in The Word, checking me out, you won't get It either. Nor will you get it just by asking someone else.
I am going to stop here for now. Here's an assignment if you are interested:  Read the following sections and verses to understand more about this 'Light' talked about here in Genesis 1:3 through 1:5.

 

1 John 1:5 (KJV) “This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”

 

Job 38 (KJV) For those who do not believe, or are out and out atheists, then I suggest you read this chapter and try your hardest to disprove it. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/atheistsonreligeon.htm

 

Isaiah 45:1-12 (KJV)

01 Thus saith the Lord to His anointed, “to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;”

02 “I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron

03 “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness [Satan], and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israelhttp://www.godsplan.org.uk/Bereshith.htm

04 “For Jacob My servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known Me https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob

05 “I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside Me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known Me

 

John 8:12 (KJV) Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life

 

06 “That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else  http://www.godsplan.org.uk/christianrace.htm

07 “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these thingshttp://www.godsplan.org.uk/system.htm

08 “Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.”

09 “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd [potter] strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?”

10 “Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth

11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and His Maker, “Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons, and concerning the work of My hands command ye Me.”

12 “I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even My hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded

 

John 1 (KJV) I suggest you read this chapter also and inwardly digest. 

 

John 3:17-21 (KJV)  

17 “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.”

18 “He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but He that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

19 And this is the condemnation, “That light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

20 “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”

21 “But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God

 

2 Corinthians 4:6 (KJV) “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

 

Ephesians 5:8 (KJV) “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light
