I have been wondering how possible it was for God to have created the whole universe in less than seven days. Sounds so impossible right? Because up till now, scientists are still uncovering the numerous wonders embedded in nature and they haven’t even scratched the nut yet.
Also, due to the complexity of the human system, medical doctors get so many new discoveries annually. Just a pinch of sand contains thousands of species of bacteria not to talk of other microorganisms. The air we breath also contains numerous organisms, including the ones we can see and cannot.
Take a look at the sky at night, you would see billions of shining stars, each of those stars burn gases like the sun which has planets revolving around it. Because they are far away, we can only see them as little twinkling diamonds in the sky.
Should we believe that all these were created in six days; each bearing 24hours? Well, I disagree.
2 Peter 3:8 says; “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends, with the Lord, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day”.
If this is the case, it is logical to say that God created the world in 6000 earth years and rested for a thousand earth years making it a total of 7000 years.
The book of Genesis was written by Moses, a man who wasn’t present during the time of creation. Safe to say that he wrote it under the divine inspiration of God.
In 2 Timothy 3:16, we read that “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness”...(God’s instruction to Moses inclusive). It could mean that God told Moses the number of days he created the world in the way He (God) sees it and not in the way man sees it.
Furthermore, it is believed that Jesus died and resurrected about 2000yrs ago which means that in the eyes of God, it’s only been two days ago his son died for the world.
Don’t you think it would be too early for God to send his son to the world again to take the righteous ones?
The pain, sorrow and trauma of his son suffering and finally dying is still a fresh wound. If you were God would you allow your son to come back too soon? Perhaps God is waiting for the week to be over so that rapture can take place.
From my ratiocination, we may have about 5000 more years to go before he sends his son to us again.
