Genesis 1:1-5 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God 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, one day.
There are two key words here for me that I would like share and for you to consider. The first being; “Let there be Light” I have always thought of light being that of the visible spectrum. It is but, it is far more than that. Visible light is a very small part of the electromagnetic spectrum. This takes in such things as radio waves, micro waves, x rays and cosmic rays. In that one statement, this Creator caused the rest of the creation to take place. It was the necessary first step. Now that He has done that simple task, He is satisfied with the result of the first day.
The ramifications of the electromagnetic spectrum are enormous. Inside this spectrum are the things that I have been somewhat fascinated with for a long time, “String Theory” and the fact that everything in this universe is vibrating at one wavelength or another. Audio waves are just vibrations and the fact that we can see is a result of vibrational waves. Every bone in our bodies is vibrating, the table is vibrating, the rocks are vibrating, everything is vibrating and most in harmony with all else.
When we think of a day, we start using human sidereal time but I do not believe we can do that when it comes to the Creator. Day one may have taken a billion of our years or longer. When God was finished with that first project, He called it a day, in fact, He called it Day One. This may account for the scientists saying that the earth is more than six thousand years old. Whose measuring stick are we using?
