Proclaiming the gospel and touching lives in practical ways
The earth was not created in six days. Saying that God created heaven and the earth in six days is misleading.
What happened is that after God created the heaven and the earth, it came into existence right there and then. Yes, the earth came into existence long before light appeared. Its just that the earth then, was without form or shape.
This means the earth came into existence long before the six days that came into being after light first appeared. After the creation of heaven and earth, the earth was without form, but it was really already in existence.
Read Genesis 1 again and see how it happened. The six day thought throws off a lot of people on the topic of creation. The Spirit of God did not start moving on the face of the waters after the first day. He moved upon the face of the waters long before light came into existence.
“Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”
