When God Rested

By the end of the sixth day of Creation, the first man and woman had been not only given each other, but had been blessed by God to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth — the earth that they were given the responsibility and authority to rule over. On the seventh day, the Rest of God began. Let us look at that Rest and what it meant for God and for humankind.  As you look at the full text of Genesis 1-2, you will see something very interesting. At the end of the first day of creation, we are told “God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.” (Genesis 1:5 NASB) This is repeated for each of the six days. The word for “day” in Hebrew is “yowm”, which can be translated as a 24 hour day, daytime, or a period…

I asked Holy Spirit about this. There may be some other aspects to His purpose and timing, but there was one answer to my…

A Special Creation

One day the Eternal God scooped dirt out of the ground, sculpted it into the shape we call human, breathed the breath that gives life into the nostrils of the human, and the human became a living soul.”          (Genesis 2:7, the Voice) Close your eyes and imagine with me.  On the sixth day of creation, the Son of God knelt down, plunging His hands deep into the rich, living soil of the earth that He had just created. In wisdom, He drew out of that soil the elements and minerals of which we are all made and lovingly formed the first human being.  As He worked, He thought about you…. and me…. every person who would ever exist because of this one creative act.  And He smiled.  This Potter molded not only the exterior of ‘adam, as a human artist would, but He, with the finest detail, designed blood cells,…
