There was Evening and Morning the First Day

A Revelation of God
Note: I had a great idea for this week’s blog, but God spoke a revelation into my spirit. What He said, gave me new meaning to the Old Testament being the foreshadow of the New Testament, and that the New Testament, in essence, is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. Although this is true, the Revelation was life-changing to me in that I get to pass the Word of God to my brothers and sisters.

Have you ever wondered why, in Genesis one, each consecutive day started in the evening [1]? Myself, I’ve wondered that for a very long time. Until this morning at 05:18, when the Lord woke me up. The Lord said that evening is representative of darkness and is the total state of mankind [2]. Then the morning came. The morning is representative of light, which represents Christ [3].

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. [Genesis 1:5 KJV]

The reason behind this oddity is that the creation of days foreshadowed Christ’s birth, ministry, and death. Or as God put it into my spirit, the creation of days foreshadowed Christ. Prophetically and in terms of time, night had to come first, which represents all the evil in the world. Darkness has always signified Satan and evil [4], whereas, light has always signified Christ [5]. There are many Scriptures referencing both.

In Genesis 1, there was evening. But then, hallelujah, there was morning [6]. 2 Corinthians 6:14 is why God had to separate the light from the darkness. Granted, the 2 Corinthians Scripture speaks to the yoking of a believer with an unbeliever in the natural, but lest we forget, we are the Bride of Christ. If we fellowship with our sin (Satan and darkness), there is no light in us [7].

The phrase “there was evening,” was the Hebrews way of saying, “Something new was started.” When the Bible couples that with “and there was morning,” was the Hebrews way of saying, “Something new was started and it was finished [8].”

The Bible started before the foundation of the world and time, and comes full circle on the Cross, hallelujah! The Greek words, “It is finished,” is tetelestai, and is an accounting term meaning “paid in full.” Christ was born to die and to save mankind from the darkness. Because of Jesus and the Cross, we are bought with a price [9].

Thank you, Lord for your Revelation and illumination in terms of the Genesis creation account and its significance to you and the Cross. I am in awe of you Lord and I come to you with a thankful heart. Thank you for the Cross and what it means to us. Thank you for dying for me. Thank you, Lord for your Word and for sharing your history with us. Thank you for my redemption and calling me to you. Thank you for my salvation and for accepting me into your Kingdom. It is in your precious name that I pray, and give you honor and glory, AMEN.

Something new was started and was finished on the Cross.

[1] From the Julian calendar (45BC) to the Gregorian calendar (1582)
[2] Jeremiah 17:9
[3] John 8:12
[4] Acts 26:18
[5] John 9:5
[6] Genesis 1:4, 5
[7] 1 John 1:5-10
[8] Does that sound familiar? “It is finished” is the last thing Christ said on the Cross before giving up the ghost. John 19:30
[9] 1 Corinthians 6:20
