Watch ... think ... search ... and rethink? A good point is being made...

Rodin,

Went to watch these videos and they all have been removed!!?

What were they about? Wonder why they are no longer available?

Thanks, Rhoda

Hi Rhoda,

It seems the videos were consolidated into a separate video. I have edited the post.

There is good reason to believe the day starts at Sunrise and not at Sunset. See the video(s) and let me know what you think.

Rodin,

I watched the first video and at this point he hasn't changed my mind.
It says over and over "the evening and the morning" in that order.

Plus, the idea of the darkness being overcome by the light even rings True before the "first day".

I don't like the idea of light (if first) being "overcome" or ending with darkness
but the darkness (being first) being overcome with the Light.

I am sure elsewhere in the OT it proves evening than morning is the correct order of a day
but right now I can't say where but I will try to find and post it.

One thing I noticed as I looked at Gen chapter 1 was in verse 4 God divided the light from the darkness
and then in verse 14 it says " Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night"
Why and how were there two "divisions"?

... and I thought the sun reflected off the moon which had no light of it's own ... ?
Funny what you "see" in His Word when you really look at something you thought you knew ...

Plus, IF there was "light" in verse 3 what type of "light" was it
if the "greater light" of the sun wasn't created till verse 14 ... ?

Hopefully I can answer two of your questions.

What was the light created on the 1st day? Of course creating that light made the first day since by His definition the light is the day and not darkness. In pointing this out it is only possible then to start the day with the light He created. It can not start with darkness. Do you get that?

Father created one huge orb of light on the 1st day. On the 4th day He divides that orb up into the Sun and the many stars. That is the second dividing you questioned.

Blessings.

On The Dawn of a New Day

Or

On The Evening of a New Day

that is what the above is asking.

Evoc your post is a LIGHT in the darkness.

John 11:9 "Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day?"

That's quite clear.

Note: the above verse apparently has been seriously mistranslated in many Bible translations - perhaps to make it "fit" according to the understanding of the translator.

Mat 12:40
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

So now pick one :

Three days = 24 hours x 3
+ Three nights = 12 hours x 3

Three days = 12 hours x 3
+ Three nights = 12 hours x 3

Three days = 24 hours x 3
+ Three nights = 6 hours x 3

Three days = 24 hours x 3
+ Three nights = 24 hours x 3

Thee days = 12 hours x 3
+ Three nights = 24 hours x 3

Three days = 12 hours x 3
+ Three nights = 6 hours x 3
