Genesis 1:6-8 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
I had to look up what the elements of the sky and air around us is made up of and it turns out, atoms of oxygen and nitrogen plus lesser quantities of other atoms. Again, air, or that expanse between the waters (H2O) and the waters, is again made up of invisible quantities of more atoms in a different combination. So here we have a day two which we cannot know the length of regarding a time factor.
What I am proposing here is that all which was created was, “eternal” in nature and made up of invisible substance which God had created. It is my understanding that the word “created” means something from nothing. And here from verse one onward, we have what appears to be nothing made from what appears to be nothing. It seems the entire world is based upon visible combinations of invisible matter. We really have something from what appears to be nothing. Thus far, we have a visible earth and visible water and I believe we probably had those misty things called clouds. (To be continued)
