Genesis Creation Day Seven

Creation Day Seven


Genesis 2:1-4
1. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

3. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

4. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day (time) that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days (times, phases) the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day (time): wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day (time), and hallowed it.

On the seventh day God rested from his work.  No, he wasn't tired. The word rested means that he ceased or finished.   His creation was complete at that time.  Because God rested on the seventh day, we set aside one day each week to cease from our work and remember our Creator.

To the only eternal creator God time is completely different than it is to physical man. We are a prisoner to our physical time, but the eternal God is not since He created our physical universe including our time dimension.

Psalms 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.

Psalms 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.

Therefore, each of the creation "days" were time as in the sight of God and not 24 hour man days.
