Genesis 1:3-5 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
Since there was no sun at that time, I guess it must be the fact that there was nothing, no light, that it must have been evening or night, then when there was something to separate that original darkness, evening, from light, which was then called day. But, of course, the light did not come from a visible orb in the sky as even that had not been created yet so, I guess it was something after there was nothing. As you can see, I am trying to get my head around “Evening and Morning” since today we equate that as sunrise and sunset of that giant flaming ball of fire in the sky. What exactly is or does it refer to when it says, evening and morning?
As I have said in the past, nothing can exist without that electromagnetic energy, we do not exist, plants do not exist, and there must be some vibrational activity for the next step in the Creational activity. Maybe it has something to do with opposites like day, night, East West, North, South, in, out, up, down and the like. If there are any other ideas out there, I would like to hear them on this Evening, Morning thing in day one and two and three.
