Millions of years ago God created planet earth along with the universe in eternity. Millions of years later there was a “new beginning” for earth. God created and made a habitat for millions of creatures and all humankind all within a week of creation. God and Paradise (Heaven) merged with earth while He created and later walked and talked with Adam and Eve. But when mankind sinned, God left. That is when a redemptive God-week of time (7,000 years) began. You can learn more about the creation-week of earth with Paradise and the return of Paradise on earth after the redemptive God-week by reading Paradise on Earth by Judith Lyon-Kesselman.
What happened during these seven plentiful days?
The first day
The earth as we know it was once a void without shape or form. On the first day, God said, “Let there be light.” He called this light Day and darkness Night. This light was not physical but spiritual. It was God’s highest desire, an enlightenment for all mankind to know Him.
The second day
The earth was once covered in water. God then said, “Let there be a firmament amid the waters,” dividing the waters from under the firmament and the waters from above. This firmament is what we now call the first heaven, our atmosphere.
The third day
Still, despite the separation of water, the earth had nothing but it. Then, God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together in one place, and let the dry land appear.” There was only one land mass covered in vegetation as there will be when Paradise returns to earth. Find out how the one land mass was divided into seven continents.
The fourth day
Three natural sources of natural light were created: the sun, the moon, and the stars. Not just for natural light for days and nights, but for schedules of time, special days of assembling before God, and signs of times we must recognize and be ready.
The fifth day
“Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind…” On the fifth day, God created many creatures, from birds that fly above the earth to cattle that roamed the land.
The sixth day
On the sixth day, God created humanity in His triune image as a spirit, with a soul, living temporarily within a physical body. As a spirit, mankind was made in the image of God. This “image” means representation and manifestation. Mankind was meant to manifestly represent God while on earth. God also gave mankind dominion over all the earth, blessed them, and commanded them to multiply. God wanted a huge family.
The seventh day
God rested, decreeing that all His creations are good.
