God is light. If you ever studied quantum physics, you have discover that light is the essential component of all of creation, including the entire universe. Yet, secular quantum physicists don’t understand the infinite source of the light of the universe. But I do. That source of light is God, who is by his very nature light. But before we go any further, ask yourself this question, “If God is light, where did all the darkness of outer space and the nights on earth come from? Why is darkness present? What does darkness represent? And, will there ever be a time when darkness and the things it represents, cease to be? Think about that. Let it simmer in your mind as we proceed.
I believe, from the teachings of the context of the entire Bible, it teaches that the earth was originally a part of the Kingdom of God and heaven. But, sometime after its original creation, the universe, and more specifically, the earth, suffered from a devastating cataclysmic event which caused the earth to become cold and utterly ruined. So, it was at this moment in which this disaster took place that God withdrew His own direct light from shining upon the earth and throughout the entire universe, excluding the universe and the earth from the heaven of God’s dwelling.
Yes, God is a God of justice and judgment, even before mankind was created. God is a God of perfection, holiness, and law and order. Somebody caused disorder in Paradise. As a result of this judgment of God, the sun and moon had been moved by God, away from the earth. So, where did God move the sun, moon and other planets? And you know what, that’s a good question. And my answer is I don’t know where he moved them. But I do believe God placed some barrier, like a curtain on a stage, around the sun, the moon and stars, causing all light to cease to shine upon the original earth, causing the utter destruction of God’s judgment to be sealed in ice, creating the ice age, often spoken of by scientist.
How do I know this? How could I believe such a thing, you might ask? Well, after the Spirit of God, who was hovering over the cold waters of the desolate earth, thawing the icy waters of Genesis 1, verse 2, we then hear God say in verse 3, “Let there be light”; and there was light.” This light did not come from the sun, which had not been revealed yet. This was the light of God the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit of God who was preparing the earth for restoration and who would restore life upon the earth.
The Holy Spirit was performing the duties of the sun temporarily until God removed the veil blocking the sun’s light, allowing the previously created sun, moon and stars to appear again, shining their light upon the earth.
It’s okay. Sit down and think about that for a moment. I’m throwing a lot of stuff at you that actually should have always been taught as the tradition normal of the creation.
So, now that your head is clearing, let’s go to the day when God unveils the sun which had been created long ago in the dateless past of the original creation. In Gen 1:14-19, “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.”
Look at, or listen to this passage again, line by line. Chew each word of this spiritual food, then swallow, allowing it to digest slowly.
Ready? Let’s look at it closely now. The root word for “made”, in verse 16, which says, “Then God made two great lights,” is waya‘as which mean appoint, bestow or bring forth, according to Strongs Concordance and the Expanded Greek Hebrew Dictionary. Thus, “appoint, bestow or bring forth,” would be the proper interpretation in the context of the text, instead of made, because these light sources had been previously created. The Hebrew word, waya‘as, does not speak of an original creation in Genesis 1 verse 16, but rather it speaks of appointments to purpose and action, which was shining light upon the earth and in the universe.
Again, I believe that it was the Light of God, not the sun alone, which shined upon and preserved life on this Pre-Adamic world that existed in eternity past, prior to Satan’s rebellion and fall. Likewise, it shall be the Light of God that shall shine upon the city of New Jerusalem and all of the earth again, as a life preserving light, after the restoration of the new heavens and earth, as it is declared in the Book of Revelation, “The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). (Rev 21:23-25 NKJV).
Things are getting interesting, aren’t they? You’ll want to stick around, or at least visit often. I have a lot of juicy stuff for you to become familiar with as you eat more delicious spiritual food so you can learn more about God. Things that will transform your heart, life and way of seeing and approaching the throne of the most High God. Awesome things!
