Walking Through Eden And Beyond (Part 6)
I am setting off on the third day of the journey. One thing that I flip-flopped about was the word “waters”. Those who saw that may have wondered why I said water when the scriptures said waters. That was so because I was imagining the waters to be floating as one body of water without any particular form. I now know, after studying the truth about the third day, that I have to look at the waters differently.
Genesis 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
The way I see it now is that there were several parts of water in several places close to each other. In the verse above I see that the Master, Jesus, moved all those parts into one place. Only after that act did He create the solid dry land. I think that it is important to note that He referrers to the solid as dry and not wet. It does not mean that parts of the earth were not submerged under the waters (or water, since they were in one place).
Genesis 1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
Jesus named the dry land that He created Earth. He also named the waters on the solid Earth, Seas. So now I don’t have to say waters or water if I can avoid that. I can just say Sea or Seas.
Here is what the Apostle Peter said. 2 Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Peter understood that part of the Earth was in the water (submerged). He also used the word water twice instead of waters. I can see that he did not fail to show the importance of the word of God. Christians who are skeptical about God’s power through His spoken words, and are holding on to various theories about the creation of the Earth and the heavens, are taking the side of the “willingly ignorant” people.
Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Genesis 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
I can tell from the two verses above that God’s next act of creation also needed His spoken words before anything could appear that was not there. Those things were not brought from somewhere else. They came into existence by the spoken words of Jesus.
The grass, herb and fruit trees or plants were very specific kinds. I know that from the context. Except for the grass, the seeds played an important role in depicting the specific kinds of herb and fruit. On that day there were no other kinds of herbs and fruits. I cannot tell if the grass consisted of several varieties on that day.
Genesis 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
I hope that you enjoy the feast now that you have herbs and fruits.
