V1) In my opinion, this is one of the most comforting verses in the Bible. God, who knows the end from the beginning(see Isaiah !"1#), who already knew abo$t the e%istence of sin in the $niverse even before it e%isted and provided a way to deal with it(&ee 'omans 1!"), still decided to create the world in which we live. Is not this $nmistakable evidence that God loves h$manity* +ven the death of is own &on -es$s co$ld not hold im back from creating the world in which h$mans live.V) rom what it looks like, the earth was some type of mass in which there was no light, b$t in which there was water. /he &pirit of God was said to move $pon the face of the waters. &o at this point, it is seen that there are at least two members of the Godhead. 0ne erson is God, and the other erson is the &pirit of God. rom -ohn 1"123, we know that there are three, the third being the 4reator -es$s, even tho$gh it may not be e%plicitly mentioned in this chapter.V32) /he first day, God called light into e%istence and light e%isted. /hen, God separated the light from the darkness and declared the light to be day and the darkness to be night. /his is what God created on the first day.V!25) 0n the second day, God created the firmament, which he also called heaven, or in other words, God created the sky and separated it from the water. 6eep in mind that God never creates anything witho$t a definite p$rpose.V721#) 0n the third day, God created the dry land. e separated the waters from the dry land which e named earth. e also gave the name 8&eas9 to the waters. or these three creation days, God spoke something into e%istence, separated it from something that was already there, and gave the creation a specific name. /o me, this is an indication that God is a God of order, classification, and organi:ation, and not conf$sion(1 4orinthians 1"33). /h$s, God cannot be responsible for the complicated, terribly inacc$rate and conf$sing theory of evol$tion.V11213) God set the earth apart from the water, knowing that certain kinds of vegetation wo$ld not do well in s$ch an environment where there is water all the time. By far, it seems that God creates and organi:es the inanimate environment first before creating the creat$re that can thrive in that environment. /his is simply a testimony to the love of God. /his shows that God wo$ld not even create the plants witho$t providing them with an appropriate environment in which they can live and thrive.V1217) 0n the fo$rth day of creation, God created the lights in the firmament so that is creation may disting$ish between night and day, and so that the earth wo$ld have definite periods of light and darkness. /hey were also to be indicators for the days of the week and the seasons of the year. God desired the s$n, or the greater light, to r$le d$ring what we know as the day time, while the lesser light, or what we know as the moon, was to r$le d$ring what we know as the night time. God also created stars to help with providing light d$ring the night.If I $nderstand correctly, when God created these lights for the firmament, they were not a$tomatically in the firmament where e wanted them. I say this beca$se verse 1; says that God set the lights in the firmament.4ontin$ing on with the idea that God creates an ideal environment before creating creat$res to live in the environment, one can anticipate what type of creat$res wo$ld come ne%t within the creation process. /he creat$res wo$ld have to be the kind that f$nction best with a day2night cycle in which there is a distinct contrast between the intensity of light d$ring a twenty2fo$r ho$r period. /he creat$res wo$ld also be able to benefit from the e%istence of the vegetation that was created on the third day.
