Today I’d like to begin going through the Genesis account of what we
normally call “the creation”. But I’d like to share it with you in a slightly
We left off with Gen. 1:2…God’s Spirit hovering over the void waste-
land of the earth. What happens next is this:
“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the
light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called
the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening,
and there was morning—the first day.” (Gen. 1:3-5)
Take a look at that again. The Bible doesn’t say God created light on that
first day. He simply said, “Let there be light…”
Or, perhaps, in other words, “Let’s get rid of all the dust, debris and darkness
that blocks the light from the earth…all the stuff that got kicked up in the war
with Lucifer that so distorted the heavens and earth, that even the light can’t
“And God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water
from water.” So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse
from the water above it. And it was so. God called the expanse “sky.” And there
was evening, and there was morning—the second day.” (Gen. 1:6-8)
Again, it doesn’t say God created anything…only that he separated the water
from the water. Science believes that at one time the earth’s axis was perpendicular
to the sun…back in pre-historic times, to be more precise. What if, during this
tremendous battle, the earth was shaken to the point that the whole planet was
tilted on it’s axis, coming to rest just as it sits today? Tilted in relation, rather than
perpendicular to the sun?
The shift would have caused catastrophic shifts in the entire global environmental
systems that would have instantly wiped out all life. It could have very easily caused
an ice age or world-wide flooding, turning deserts to glaciers, etc…much like our
scientists theorize happened at some point in the pre-historic world. Instant and
total devestation and annihilation.
We know from the second verse of Genesis that the world was formless, empty
and dark. Water was everywhere…in fact, it implies there was nothing here BUT
water…until God separated it.
“And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry
ground appear.” And it was so.” (Gen. 1:9)
Dry ground is “earth” (Gen. 1:10 KJV). If God created the earth (dry ground)
“in the beginning” (vs 1), then how is it his Spirit was hovering over “the waters”
(vs 2)? Because the entire earth was under water, of course! But how did it GET
that way, when it was created as dry ground? Again, Psalm 104 sounds like it’s
speaking more of this incident than the flood of Noah’s day, when the waters took
many, many days to recede, because the waters FLED as in Gen. 1:9,10….
“You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment; the waters stood
above the mountains. But at your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of your
thunder they took to flight; they flowed over the mountains, they went down
into the valleys, to the place you assigned for them.” (Psalm 104:6-8).
“Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on
the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.”
Again, no mention of God creating anything…he’s simply commanding the land to,
once again, produce vegetation. Everything was destroyed in the upheaval of the
earth, but somewhere below the surface of the earth, the seeds of plant life lay waiting
for God’s command to spring forth! The plants were destroyed on the pre-historic earth,
but the seeds were still there….
