Ge 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Ge 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
Ge 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
Ge 1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
Ge 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
Ge 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Have you noticed that in the Genesis creation account God defines a day as an evening and a morning?
All logic should arouse us to do the opposite. That is, to define a day as comprising a morning first, and then the evening.
The Hebrew word for morning, “boqer”, defines a time span before or after the crack of dawn, when the sun’s leading edge brightly pierces the obscurity of the night sky.
Accordingly, evening, “ereb”, is the cycle originating when the sun’s inferior edge is swallowed at twilight into the blackness of nightfall.
For humanity, a thing is initiated with dawn and the crack of light, and ended at dusk, when the surrounding world can no longer be seen.
I do believe that God thinks in this way .
He created man to wake up with the first light and work while he has that light.
Jesus declares that there will come a night-time when no man can work.
So what was Moses’ divine inspiration which caused him to pen a day as commencing with the evening and ending with a morning?
I must confess I do not have an answer.
I did pray and get a revelation.
God works from His invisible Spirit, into visible manifestation.
He works from what is unseen to the seen.
He fashioned the world from things invisible, things which are not readily manifested to the naked eye.
Today, what we see of God’s creation, was made from things which do not traverse the wave spectrum of physical light.
Faith is substance of things not seen.
Before God discharges something into this natural visible word, He frames it in the invisible heavenly places of His Spirit.
With God, it’s spirit first, then the perceptible.
My premise is that God formed all in the darkness of the Holy Spirit’s evening to then manifest it in the light of the morning’s corporeality.
These few verses on evening and morning should serve as an irreplaceable lesson to civilization.
If the affairs of the USA would be handled first in the evening of Holy Spirit enigmatic workings, it would then be displayed in the morning of God’s bright wisdom .
There would be orderly success in the affairs of our country.
But no, mankind arises to busy itself in morning of his own logic and the utter forgetfulness of His Creator who works mysteriously in the evening.
The end product is that human civilization is a virtual sinking ship in spite of all technological advances.
America is biting itself in the butt as it works in the morning of its own conceits with no consideration to the evening’s workings of God’s Spirit.
Should we inaugurate our day in the evening of God’s untraceable counsels to then display them in the morn of His wisdom?
Do I believe that this will happen? All things are possible to him who believes.
It is it probable? Probably not.
But I am one who will direct my day to begin in the evening and end in the morning.
