11 For in six days the I AM made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day, and so the I AM blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.

God could have created the universe in one second if He wanted to. Or He could have taken billions of years. But the book of Genesis clearly says He took six days and rested the seventh.

Does God need physical rest? No, of course not. He did this as an example of what He wanted us to do. He designed us to need this day per week of rest.

The New Testament tells us that Jesus is our Sabbath. We are to rest in Him, cease from our work of trying to earn salvation, saving ourselves through Christ instead. The entire Sabbath day rest was an object lesson for the salvation offered by Christ.

What about all the Old Earth theories? The ones that say Genesis wasn’t telling the truth?

These theories (evolution, Day Age, Gap Theory) that make the universe billions of years old totally destroy this entire object lesson of the Sabbath. They make it meaningless.

When God says here “in six days the I AM made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day:” He meant six days as we know them. No more. No less.


Today's Bible Study-

Exodus 20- Commandment #4: The Sabbathand
Romans 5- Faith Brings Peace and Joy
Today's work in Romans 6
Copy, paste, and format
Today's Hymn  He Leadeth Me. This author wrote this hymn and handed it to his wife, never giving it another thought. Imagine his surprise when he went into a church to apply to be their pastor to find them singing his hymn! His wife had submitted it to a hymnal publisher who had someone write the music for it.

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
