Hi
Just thinking it might be interesting to look again at the beginning

   Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth           

The first thing to consider is what dose God look like of course nobody has see God what we do know is That God the Father  is the supreme being in the universe and he has a heavenly host under him who is his helper the angels so is man in his image built in the same way.
We know that at Christs return he will be married to his bride the church and they will become one so Christ and his wife is Eve so they are created as is our Heavenly Father.
So Christ is the end of creation no one in the history of mankind has achieved what Christ has he is man in the image of God.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Thought to take a look at Genesis  2

  1  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

 2  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

 3  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made           


At what point in the history of mankind could God have pronounced everything to be very good all we know about the history of mankind there is no period of time that could possibly be very good.
Then we have these words from our Lord.

       Joh 5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work   

So if God was still working up to the time Christ said these words can only mean that God's sabbath rest is a future event and my contention is that Gods sabbath rest is Christs millennial reign the last day of this creation.

Love and peace

Hi
So what I am saying is should we look at Genesis as something that was finished thousands of years ago that God said was very good and put his feet up and has rested ever since because I can't find anything in scripture to say he began work again until he creates a new heaven and earth at the end of revelations.
So are we looking at the creation account in entirely wrong time frame how could God pronounce everything very good when he knew everything that was to happen plus Christ confirmed that him and the Father were still working 2000 years ago.
Jest some food for thought

Love and Peace

Hi
Just thought we can take another look at the creation account

   1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

 2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters       


Have wondered how much are included in verse 1 were the creation of the heavens and earth finished there is no time limit put on this creation event.
Then when we look at verse 2 it can well apply to the state of the earth at the time of Noahs flood and the beginning of a new creation.

So if verse 1 covers the time from the beginning up to Noahs flood it could be a long period of time even long enough to cover the age of the earth according to science.
I am not advocating evolution just looking into the possibility that God created everything  over a longer period of time longer than a week.

Then when the angels came down and contaminated the first  Adam by cohabiting with human women God decided to end that creation and start a new creation with Noah and everything on the ark.

Hi
Next verse.

     3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light         

So what was this light not the sun that dose not make an appearance until day four which is very strange because all life forms need the sun to live so what is the this light.
The only thing it can be is the light of the world which is Jesus Christ the first of all creation through whom and for whom everything is created.
Plus we know the sun was before the flood so what I am saying is we should look at the creation account in a spiritual light after the flood everything God had created that he wanted was on the ark the only thing missing was Adam the man in Gods image so God set about putting this right and it would be realised in Christ it would take 7 days 1000 years long.

  And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
Genesis 1:4-‬5 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.1.4-5.ESV         


Of course the light was good the light was Christ the darkness are those living on the earth the light had not been revealed to them at that time so there was light and darkness evening and morning this was the first day of this creation which would last a 1000 years enough time to increase the human population for Gods purpose.

Love and Peace

Hi
Next

  And God said, ?Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.? And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.
Genesis 1:6-‬8 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.1.6-8.ESV       


So what are these waters that are separated we know from revelations that the sea mentioned is the sea of humanity so do these waters represent on earth humanity and the waters above the heavenly host so God sets a barrier between the two so the angels could not contaminate this creation the only angels to come down to earth would be those sent by God to deliver messages then to return to heaven.
And there was evening and there was morning, the second day can be seen as darkness and light the light of course our Lord the darkness the human population who had not yet seen the light.
It's interesting to note that God dose not say the second day was good or very good

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on to day 3

9And God said, ?Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.? And it was so. 10God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
11And God said, ?Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.? And it was so. 12The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.     


God calls the waters seas which we can see as the seas of humanities and the earth is where they live the next thing God dose is create all types of vegetation but in this creation after flood this vegetation represents all the different human beings that populate the earth why do I say such a strange thing because Israel is depicted as a Fig tree Adam And Eve used Fig leaves to cover them selves when Jesus cured the man of blindness the first thing he saw was trees walking like men did Christ make a mistake not possible so was Christ curing his spiritual blindness as well as his physical blindness.
so the creation account in Genesis  is telling us about God Creating Man in his Image the first man in his Image is the nation of Israel in what respect dose Israel look like God you may ask Moses represents God Arron represents Christ the high priest the tribe of Levi represents the church the woman Christs  helper all  those who are chosen the other 11 tribes are those brought up and instructed by the priests this is Man in the image of God.
If you compare the life of Christ and the creation of Israel they follow  the same path it cant be a   coincidence Israel is the Man of flesh who must come first Christ is the Man of spirit who comes last the last Adam.

Love and Peace
Dave
