1. Introduction to the Creation

According to scriptures, God began creating the heavens and the earth at a known point in time called Day 1 of the Creation. Each day was marked by a new and exciting event, with the creation of a man named Adam on Day 6.

In the beginning of the Creation, the earth’s structure was already in existence and under water.  God had already created the earth unaware to us:

“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth

And the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep (water)

And the Spirit of God moved or hovered over the waters

And God said, let there be light and there was light

And God saw that the light was good

And God divided the light from the darkness

And God called the light “Day” and called the darkness “Night”

And the evening and the morning were the first day (Genesis 1: 1 – 5).

2. Events that took place in the creation of the heaven and earth

The sequence of the Creation events can be derived from the Genesis 1 account which indicated that:

  • On Day 1, God created the earth
  • the earth was without form (tohuw) and void or empty.
  • it was covered in darkness or night.
  • It was also  covered in water, referred to as “the deep”
  • On day 1, God  hovered over the water and created light, then the 24 hour day/night cycle with 12 hours allotted to day and night respectively.
  • On Day 2, He created the heaven or firmament
  • On Day 3, God commanded the waters covering the earth to gather in one place or Seas.
  • Dry land appeared and God created trees and plants
  • On day 4, He created the sun, moon and stars.
  • On Day 5, water creatures were created
  • Adam was created on Day 6
  • God rested on Day 7

More coming in this brief return to the Creation. This revelation will help the earth to understand its place in history and  God’s timeline and plan.
