Elohim's Creation

Updated on December 19, 2017

Greetings!

Yom Shlishi sameach!! Happy Third Day (Tuesday)!! It is a little drizzly and a bit foggy this morning; but, Halelyah, it is a new day!! Elohim has gifted us all with another 86,400 seconds; how will you use them while at work and/or at school and/or at play? Who will you share your plethora of seconds with? Are you going to let anyone steal any of your seconds, and then say, “Ugh! My whole day is ruined now!?” How many of these seconds will you give back to Elohim in adoration and praise and worship?

The Seventh Day

Bereishit (Genesis) 2:1-3--”The heavens, the earth, and all their vast array were finished. On the seventh day Elohim finished His work which He had done; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work He had done. Elohim blessed the seventh day, and made it holy, because He rested in it from all His work of creation which He had done.”In Hebrew …

“Vay’khul’lu ha’shamayim v’ha’aretz v’khal-tzva’am

Vay’khal Elohim ba-yom ha-shevayim m’lakh’to asher asah vayish’bot ba-yom ha-shevayim m’lakh’to asher asah

Vay’varekh Elohim ba-yom ha-shevayim vay’qodesh oto kiy vo shavat mikal-m’lakh’to asher-bara Elohim la’asot”

I want to call your attention to “the seventh day” and “ba-yom ha-shevayim”. This is Shabbat (Sabbath), the seventh day of creation. Elohim, the Creator, Himself set this day as a pattern by which all men should rest. The universe calls into affect the validity of the Sabbath, the seventh, ha-shevayim. Avraham did not conjure up such as day as holy (qodesh). Moshe did not declare this day the most sacred day of all days. Not one single patriarch, nor any matriarch, exclaimed or proclaimed this day as holy. This day is clearly the inspired day of rest by Elohim. Not a mere seventh day, not any seventh day any individual wants to click off throughout the weeks of the year; but, the seventh day, ba-yom ha-shevayim

Elohim created for six days. Bereishit 1:31 says, “Elohim saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.” Elohim had created everything, and He saw that it was very good … He had provided everything, that man(kind) would need, and, He could have stopped at this point; but, He did not. Because, though He had provided all that man(kind) would need, He had not created all that man(kind) had need of. And, then, Elohim created the seventh day, ba-yom ha-shevayim, which is vitally important to the life of man(kind). A day of rest, a day of which is set apart as holy (qodesh), a very specific day, not just any day.

The word the has a very definite purpose; it is used most specifically before a noun and has a specific effect to particularize the noun it comes before. In the Hebrew language, where you read “ha-”, it is the same as saying “the” … ba-yom ha-shevayim … the seventh day. The seventh day, ba-yom ha-shevayim is a very specific day that Elohim created for man(kind), not some willy-nilly day that man(kind) has decided to be the seventh day. And the seventh day, ba-yom ha-shevayim that Elohim created was created for a specific purpose … a day of holy rest (savat qodesh; holy Shabbat (Sabbath)).

Elohim had completed the creation of the physical part of His work on the sixth day, and the spiritual aspect of creation began on the seventh day and is still continuing to this day, today. The seventh day, ba-yom ha-shevayim is the day on which we rest, to take a deliberate look at what Elohim has created … for us … and we hear Elohim speaking to us, “See all that I have made aside, and know that I am not yet done. Come, be a part of My creation.”

Supporting Scripture

Yesha’yah (Isaiah) 65:17--”For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be remembered, nor come into mind.”

Hagilu Natan Elohim (Revelation) 21:1--”I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more.”

      Wonderful article. God did give us a day of rest as a part of Creation. You are right, the 7th day is important to all mankind because of this fact. Great article. Keep up the great Hubs.
