Chapter SevenNew And ImprovedGod saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Genesis 2: 1-3Though you cannot know the totality of it, there are several conclusions you can draw from Scripture that give clues to understanding the Will of God:•God's Will is irrefutable. •God's Will is good. •God's Will is acceptable. •God's Will is perfect. •God's Will is already done. In order to gain insight into this you must follow the instructions of Jesus and look beyond the appearances to what is real.Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:2To begin to discover what God's will for you is, let us go all the way back to the beginning. In Genesis the first chapter you find God busy preparing a place for you. On the First Day God created heaven & earth, and day & night (a unity of opposites which exists throughout all creation).In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 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. - Genesis 1: 1-5Light is wisdom; and the first day's work is the calling of light or wisdom into expression. Light represents intelligence, and darkness represents undeveloped capacity. Symbolically these are "day" and "night." - Charles Fillmore, Mysteries of Genesis P.14On the Second Day God created the firmament, the expanse of sky, to separate the waters above (aspiration) from the waters below (desire).And God said, "Let there be an expanse [firmament] 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. - Genesis 1: 6-8The second step in creation is the development of faith or the "firmament." The "waters" represent the un-established elements of the mind. ...unexpressed possibilities in mind. There must be a "firm" starting point or foundation established. This foundation or "firmament" is faith "moving upon" the unformed capacities of Spirit consciousness. The divine Logos--God as creative power--gives forth the edict "Let there be a firmament." The first step or "day" in creation involves "light" or understanding, and the second step, faith in the knowing quality of mind. Mysteries of Genesis P.16 -17On the Third Day God divided the waters below into dry land and seas (the mineral kingdom) as a provision for the growth of the vegetable kingdom. And the land produced vegetation in bountiful supply, all with the means of reproducing and continuing the creation process.And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good. 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. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.- Genesis 1: 9-13The third st
