In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
(Genesis 1: 1 – 5)
Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so.
God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
(Genesis 1: 6 – 8)
Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.
God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.
(Genesis 1: 9 – 10)
This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made earth and heaven.
Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the LORD God had not sent rain upon the earth, and there was no man to cultivate the ground.
But a mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface of the ground.
Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed.
(Genesis 2: 4 – 8)
Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them”; and it was so.
The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good.
There was evening and there was morning, a third day.
(Genesis 1: 11 – 13)
If God of the Bible exists; if the Holy One, the Almighty One is real then His goodness and power continues to define cosmic history and to refine the cosmic past. The kingdom of God is already at hand and has been for two thousand years but we do not recognize it. If we seek it wisely in faith we will find it, but not where we expect to. It’s not in the future or in the past, but everywhere and now. Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:21)
The creation spoken of in the first chapter of Genesis is a constantly recurring cosmic sequence, it repeats every time a human being is conceived; however, this has not always been the case. Only after the appearance of the Son of Man, two thousand years ago, has it been possible to experience never-ending life. This is why the Kingdom of God is already at hand. To appreciate the Creation Allegory as a meaningful symbolic representation of God’s creative power, it must be understood allegorically that the entire evolutionary history of ADAM (that is humanity), the entire biblical history from Genesis 2:4 to Revelation 22:21 occurs within the third day of the Six Days of creation. This is why the Son of Man “must be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Mt 12:40).
To completely comprehend this allegory, consider the fact that each of us has come from a state of “nothing” to a state of “something”? We have made an existential journey into existence. Human embryology informs us that on an average, a period of six days follows conception before implantation. In those six days following our conception, we were alone with God. During those “six days” of our creation, we experienced a plethora of existence—we became one with eternity when our cells experienced their first differentiation. When God’s instructions separated the waters, our cellular walls became a firmament. When one became two and two became one—God came to know us and to walk with us in the Garden. In those first days, while we were alone with God, He prepared the world, and all that was in it for each of us. This is the Creation Allegory; this is the meaning of those “Six Days of Creation”. After sharing those days with Him, we became exhausted and drained. Our internal supply of energy depleted we started to die. In complete subjectivity, as we grew old for the first time we called upon his holy name. I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 18:19) Thus, it was, with our mothers’ agreement, that on the sixth day He saved us. Lifting us up, He planted us in our mother’s garden. There, hidden in her womb forever, we found Eden—we found refreshment and life. There we found this world subjectively and became objectively known to it.
