  The Theology of Creation Genesis 1: Fact or Framework?





Genesis 1:1   In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:5   God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
Genesis 1:8   And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
Genesis 1:13   So the evening and the morning were the third day.
Genesis 1:19   So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
Genesis 1:23   So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
Genesis 1:31   Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Genesis 2:1-3   Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. (2) And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. (3) Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
Psalms 136:7-9   To Him who made great lights, For His mercy endures forever; (8) The sun to rule by day, For His mercy endures forever; (9) The moon and stars to rule by night, For His mercy endures forever.
Exo 20:9-11   Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, (10) but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. (11) For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Genesis 1:11   Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth"; and it was so.
Genesis 1:20   Then God said, "Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens."
Genesis 1:24   Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so.
Genesis 1:26   Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
[God created a new, but mature planet. He did not create seeds, but rather trees & mature plants {"the herb that yields seed" and "the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself"}. He created adult humans & animals, not babies or embryos.]
{Two more illustrations of God creating something mature immediately -
(1) When Jesus made aged wine immediately at the wedding at Cana as shown in the gospel of John chapter 2.
(2) When Aaron's rod sprouted, blossomed and produced ripe almonds overnight as shown in Numbers 17.}



John 1:1-3   In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) He was in the beginning with God. (3) All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.


Colossians 1:16-17   For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. (17) And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.


Hebrews 11:1-3   Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (2) For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. (3) By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.


Acts 17:25   "Nor is He worshiped with men's hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.
Acts 17:28   "for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, 'For we are also His offspring.'
Isaiah 42:5   Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, Who gives breath to the people on it, And spirit to those who walk on it:
[God creates & sustains all life]


Psalms 104:1-35   Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty, (2) Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment, Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain. (3) He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters, Who makes the clouds His chariot, Who walks on the wings of the wind, (4) Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.
(5) You who laid the foundations of the earth, So that it should not be moved forever, (6) You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters stood above the mountains. (7) At Your rebuke they fled; At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away. (8) They went up over the mountains; They went down into the valleys, To the place which You founded for them. (9) You have set a boundary that they may not pass over, That they may not return to cover the earth.
(10) He sends the springs into the valleys, They flow among the hills. (11) They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild donkeys quench their thirst. (12) By them the birds of the heavens have their home; They sing among the branches. (13) He waters the hills from His upper chambers; The earth is satisfied with the fruit of Your works.
(14) He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, And vegetation for the service of man, That he may bring forth food from the earth, (15) And wine that makes glad the heart of man, Oil to make his face shine, And bread which strengthens man's heart.
(16) The trees of the LORD are full of sap, The cedars of Lebanon which He planted, (17) Where the birds make their nests; The stork has her home in the fir trees. (18) The high hills are for the wild goats; The cliffs are a refuge for the rock badgers.
(19) He appointed the moon for seasons; The sun knows its going down. (20) You make darkness, and it is night, In which all the beasts of the forest creep about. (21) The young lions roar after their prey, And seek their food from God. (22) When the sun rises, they gather together And lie down in their dens. (23) Man goes out to his work And to his labor until the evening.
(24) O LORD, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of Your possessions; (25) This great and wide sea, In which are innumerable teeming things, Living things both small and great. (26) There the ships sail about; There is that Leviathan Which You have made to play there.
(27) These all wait for You, That You may give them their food in due season. (28) What You give them they gather in; You open Your hand, they are filled with good. (29) You hide Your face, they are troubled; You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. (30) You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the earth.
(31) May the glory of the LORD endure forever; May the LORD rejoice in His works. (32) He looks on the earth, and it trembles; He touches the hills, and they smoke. (33) I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. (34) May my meditation be sweet to Him; I will be glad in the LORD. (35) May sinners be consumed from the earth, And the wicked be no more. Bless the LORD, O my soul! Praise the LORD!


Job 38:1-40:2   Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said: (2) "Who is this who darkens counsel By words without knowledge? (3) Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
(4) "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. (5) Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? (6) To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, (7) When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?
(8) "Or who shut in the sea with doors, When it burst forth and issued from the womb; (9) When I made the clouds its garment, And thick darkness its swaddling band; (10) When I fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors; (11) When I said, 'This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!'
(12) "Have you commanded the morning since your days began, And caused the dawn to know its place, (13) That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And the wicked be shaken out of it? (14) It takes on form like clay under a seal, And stands out like a garment.
(15) From the wicked their light is withheld, And the upraised arm is broken. (16) "Have you entered the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in search of the depths? (17) Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death? (18) Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this.
(19) "Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, (20) That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home? (21) Do you know it, because you were born then, Or because the number of your days is great?
(22) "Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail, (23) Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, For the day of battle and war? (24) By what way is light diffused, Or the east wind scattered over the earth?
(25) "Who has divided a channel for the overflowing water, Or a path for the thunderbolt, (26) To cause it to rain on a land where there is no one, A wilderness in which there is no man; (27) To satisfy the desolate waste, And cause to spring forth the growth of tender grass?
(28) Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew? (29) From whose womb comes the ice? And the frost of heaven, who gives it birth? (30) The waters harden like stone, And the surface of the deep is frozen.
(31) "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion? (32) Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? (33) Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?
(34) "Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, That an abundance of water may cover you? (35) Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, And say to you, 'Here we are!'? (36) Who has put wisdom in the mind? Or who has given understanding to the heart? (37) Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven, (38) When the dust hardens in clumps, And the clods cling together?
(39) "Can you hunt the prey for the lion, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, (40) When they crouch in their dens, Or lurk in their lairs to lie in wait? (41) Who provides food for the raven, When its young ones cry to God, And wander about for lack of food?
(39:1) "Do you know the time when the wild mountain goats bear young? Or can you mark when the deer gives birth? (2) Can you number the months that they fulfill? Or do you know the time when they bear young? (3) They bow down, They bring forth their young, They deliver their offspring. (4) Their young ones are healthy, They grow strong with grain; They depart and do not return to them.
(5) "Who set the wild donkey free? Who loosed the bonds of the onager, (6) Whose home I have made the wilderness, And the barren land his dwelling? (7) He scorns the tumult of the city; He does not heed the shouts of the driver. (8) The range of the mountains is his pasture, And he searches after every green thing.
(9) "Will the wild ox be willing to serve you? Will he bed by your manger? (10) Can you bind the wild ox in the furrow with ropes? Or will he plow the valleys behind you? (11) Will you trust him because his strength is great? Or will you leave your labor to him? (12) Will you trust him to bring home your grain, And gather it to your threshing floor?
(13) "The wings of the ostrich wave proudly, But are her wings and pinions like the kindly stork's? (14) For she leaves her eggs on the ground, And warms them in the dust; (15) She forgets that a foot may crush them, Or that a wild beast may break them. (16) She treats her young harshly, as though they were not hers; Her labor is in vain, without concern, (17) Because God deprived her of wisdom, And did not endow her with understanding. (18) When she lifts herself on high, She scorns the horse and its rider.
(19) "Have you given the horse strength? Have you clothed his neck with thunder? (20) Can you frighten him like a locust? His majestic snorting strikes terror. (21) He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He gallops into the clash of arms. (22) He mocks at fear, and is not frightened; Nor does he turn back from the sword. (23) The quiver rattles against him, The glittering spear and javelin. (24) He devours the distance with fierceness and rage; Nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded. (25) At the blast of the trumpet he says, 'Aha!' He smells the battle from afar, The thunder of captains and shouting.
(26) "Does the hawk fly by your wisdom, And spread its wings toward the south? (27) Does the eagle mount up at your command, And make its nest on high? (28) On the rocks it dwells and resides, On the crag of the rock and the stronghold. (29) From there it spies out the prey; Its eyes observe from afar. (30) Its young ones suck up blood; And where the slain are, there it is."
(40:1) Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said: (2) "Shall the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him? He who rebukes God, let him answer it."
