God (Cont.)

By definition, God is more than one deity. In the beginning there was nothing except the “Elements.”

Therefore, the God that the bible speaks of, at least in the book of Genesis chapter one, are the “Elements!”

God is, the “Light and the Darkness;” the “Earth and the Water:” “God is the face of the “Deep and the Spirit.”

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. (Genesis:1:6)

Firmament – properly an {expanse} that {is} the firmament or (apparently) visible arch of the sky.

Divide – A primitive root; to divide (in various senses literally or {figuratively} separate.

Waters – figuratively juice; by euphemism {urine} semen: – + {piss} {wasting} water ({-ing} {[-course} {-flood} -spring]).

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. (Genesis:1:7)

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. (Genesis:1:8)

Firmament – properly an {expanse} that {is} the firmament or (apparently) visible arch of the sky.

An expanse; a space between the waters.

A space between the waters?! What waters?!

The only way God (The Elements) could have, “Divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament” is if everything that existed in the universe, was under water…

Now hold on there, hear me out.

If all the “Elements” in the universe were under water, what would that look like?

It would look like a gigantic bubble!

Imagine a giant bubble under extreme pressure from all sides by crazy amounts of water.

That bubble would be flattened and spread out in all directions but, with space between its top and bottom created by its own pressure from the heat of the stars trapped inside, thereby creating a “Firmament.”

A firmament is called, “Heaven.” Heaven at this point, is made of the only elements in existence, at least the only elements with any tangible evidence of its existence, “Stars.”

Let’s say, one of those stars, a very tiny star pierced that bubble at a point somewhere at its outer extremity.

Outside the bubble, the star’s fiery surface is extinguished by the crazy amounts of water outside.

The elements fueling the fire of the tiny star solidifies, creating an outer layer which thickens until the tiny star is buried deep inside.

The surface of this, now mass of minerals from the water mixed with minerals from whatever fueled the flames of what was once a tiny star, travels back inside the bubble.

The mass of matter with a tiny star inside is frozen from the extreme cold of outer space, but its interior still an inferno.

The tiny frozen star journeys inward until it reaches the first and tiniest star nearest the firmament’s outer extremity.

The frozen star begins to melt on the side facing the “Sun.” The liquid turns to mist which is forced into a sphere by the “Vaccum” of outer space, creating an atmosphere or “Heaven” of its own, like a tiny, tiny, tiny bubble inside a gigantic, galaxy size bubble!

According to a Google search, the Earth’s atmosphere is made up of the troposphere, the stratosphere, the mesosphere and the thermosphere. A further region, beginning about 500 km above the Earth’s surface, is called the exosphere.

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. (Genesis:1:9)

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis:1:10)

Be gathered together – to bind together (perhaps by {twisting }) that {is} collect; (figuratively) to expect: – gather ({together}) {look} {patiently} {tarry} wait ({for} {on} upon).

Place – properly a {standing} that {is} a spot; but used widely of a locality (generally or specifically); also (figuratively) of a condition (of body or mind): – {country} X {home} X {open} {place} {room} {space} X whither [-soever].

In the beginning, it seems that the Earth was one solid piece of land surrounded by waters.

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. (Genesis:1:11)

And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis:1:12)

Brought forth – to go (causatively bring) {out} in a great variety of {applications} literally and {figuratively} direct and proximate: – X {after} {appear} X {assuredly} bear {out} X {begotten} break {out} bring forth ({out} {up}) carry {out}.

After his kind – to portion out; a {sort} that {is} species.

And the evening and the morning were the third day. (Genesis:1:13)

When a verse starts with, “And God said,” the next verse repeats exactly what “God said,” but without saying God said it.

It’s some sort of “Literary Device,” designed to turn the word “God” into a “Character.”

The word “God,” given the only scientific evidence available, could easily be understood as “Elements.”

Anyway, one has to be very careful when reading the next three verses. It is no wonder to me that preachers, who claim they have been “Chosen” and teachers, who have studied the bible in college courses and for most of their adult lives, have misinterpreted the bible.

There is no shame in that; the shame is in continuing to misinterpret God’s word!

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: (Genesis:1:14)

Lights – properly a luminous body or {luminary} that {is} (abstractly) light (as an element); figuratively {brightness} that {is} cheerfulness; specifically, a chandelier: – {bright} light.

Signs – (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or {figuratively}) as a {flag} beacon; {monument} omen; {prodigy} {evidence } etc.: – {mark} {miracle} (en-) {sign} token.

Seasons – properly an {appointment} that {is} a fixed time or season.

Here in Genesis chapter one verse fourteen, the author spells out what the “Lights” in this verse are used for:

To divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years. These lights are sun and moon…

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. (Genesis:1:15)

Lights – properly a luminous body or {luminary} that {is} (abstractly) light (as an element); figuratively {brightness} that {is} cheerfulness; specifically, a chandelier: – {bright} light.

Abstractly – pulled away; detached; the basic idea is of something detached from physical, or concrete, reality.

Light – to be (causatively make) luminous (literally and metaphorically): – X break of {day} {glorious} {kindle} ({be} {en-} {give} show) light ({-en} {-ened}) set on {fire} shine.

Here in Genesis chapter one verse fifteen, the author spells out what the “Lights” in this verse should do:

Be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth. These lights are “Entities…”

In my mind, a sun and moon “Shines” light and an entity “Gives” light.

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. (Genesis:1:16)

Great – great (in any sense); hence older; also insolent.

Insolent – showing a rude and arrogant lack of respect.

Lights – properly a luminous body or {luminary} that {is} (abstractly) light (as an element); figuratively {brightness} that {is} cheerfulness; specifically, a chandelier: – {bright} light.

Rule – rule; also (concretely in plural) a realm or a ruler: – {dominion} {government} {power} to rule.

Lesser – {abbreviated} that {is} {diminutive } literally (in {quantity} size or number) or figuratively (in age or importance): – {least} less ({-ser}) little ({one}) small ({-est} {one} {quantity} {thing}) young ({-er} -est).

Stars – a star (as round or as shining); figuratively a prince: – star ([-gazer]).

In Genesis chapter one verse sixteen, the word “Lights” mean; properly a luminous body or {luminary} that {is} (abstractly) light (as an element); figuratively {brightness} that {is} cheerfulness; specifically, a chandelier: – {bright} light.

And,

The word “Light” means; properly a luminous body or {luminary} that {is} (abstractly) light (as an element); figuratively {brightness} that {is} cheerfulness; specifically, a chandelier: – {bright} light.

Only here in Genesis chapter one verse sixteen, does the word “Lights” and the word “Light” mean exactly the same thing!

The words “Lights” and “Light” are found under the reference number H3974, which means information for both words can be located in the Hebrew section of the Strong’s Concordance under number three thousand nine hundred and seventy-four.

Everywhere else in the book of Genesis the word light is found under the reference numbers H215 or H216.

The strongest evidence given for Genesis chapter one verse sixteen to be talking about the lights and the light as being, “Entities” is at the end of the verse:

“He made the stars also.”

He Made the Stars Also?!

If “He” made the stars also, then he can’t be calling the lights or the light the sun and moon, which they are by the way, because the sun is a star…

And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, (Genesis:1:17)

And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis:1:18)

So, lights that rule kingdoms?  I don’t think so…

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. (Genesis:1:19)

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. (Genesis:1:20)

Creature – From H8317; a {swarm} that {is} active mass of minute animals: – creep (-ing {thing}) move (-ing creature).

H8317 – to {wriggle} that {is} (by implication) swarm or abound: – breed (bring {forth} increase) abundantly (in {abundance}) {creep} move.

Life – From H2421; alive; hence raw (flesh); fresh ({plant} {water} {year}) strong.

H2421 – to {live} whether literally or figuratively; causatively to revive: – keep ({leave} make) {alive}

Fowl – From H5774; a bird (as covered with {feathers} or rather as covering with {wings}) often collective: – {bird} that {flieth} {flying} fowl.

H5774 – to cover (with wings or obscurity).

The firmament of heaven in verse twenty is the troposphere of earth.

Troposphere – the lowest region of the atmosphere, extending from the earth’s surface to a height of about 3.7–6.2 miles (6–10 km), which is the lower boundary of the stratosphere.

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis:1:21)

Whales – a marine or land {monster} that {is} sea serpent or jackal: – {dragon} {sea-monster} {serpent} whale.

So, the first creatures as well as the first fowl, came from the waters.

The jackal (or other hideous land animal): – {dragon}, which is included in the definition of the word “Whale,” also came from the water.

What’s interesting is, I always thought of a whale as well, a whale! You know, a giant fish-like mammal, not a dragon…

Also, in my mind, when God says that every living creature and every winged fowl was created after its kind, that means, that they didn’t evolve over time. They were created that way. There is no such thing as “Evolution!” Evolution is just a theory.

Question:

What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Answer:

The chicken, because “God,” (The Elements) created every winged fowl after his kind.

And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. (Genesis:1:22)

Blessed – to kneel; by implication to bless God (as an act of {adoration}) and (vice-versa) man (as a benefit).

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. (Genesis:1:23)

And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. (Genesis:1:24)

Living – alive.

Creature – properly a breathing {creature} that {is} animal or (abstractly) vitality.

Cattle – properly a dumb beast; especially any large quadruped or animal (often collectively): – {beast}.

Creeping thing – a reptile or any other rapidly moving animal: – that {creepeth} creeping (moving) thing.

Beast – same as living; alive; hence raw (flesh).

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis:1:25)

Made – primitive root; to do or {make} in the broadest sense and widest application.

There are only two types of living creatures. Those that come from the waters and those that come from the earth.

They didn’t evolve over time; they came forth or was brought forth after their kinds. They were either “Created” or they were “Made.”

Notice, on the “Fifth Day,” the waters brought forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

The phrase, “And the evening and the morning were the fifth day,” although describing a common event in the minds of its readers or listeners, also, but more importantly, separates “Ages!”

What am I saying? I’m saying that the creatures that “God” (The Elements) said, “Let the waters bring forth” and the waters brought forth were on the planet or at least in the waters and in the air, long before the earth brought forth the living creature after his kind.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (Genesis:1:26)

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis:1:27)

Man was different. The waters didn’t bring forth abundantly man. The earth didn’t bring forth man.

God (The Elements) made man in “Their” image after “Their” likeness.

God (The Elements) created man in “Their” own image, in the image of God (The Elements) created he “Them”; male and female created he “Them.”

What exactly does it mean to be “Made” in the image and likeness of “God?” (The Elements)

One thing’s for sure, that image and likeness was “Male” and “Female.”

How can a (one) image be male and female? (Two)

What exactly did God (The Elements) look like back then?

I imagine, only because nothing existed except stars and space, that “God” resembled stars and space: Under crazy amounts of water! (The Elements)

That is until a tiny, tiny, tiny little star, frozen underneath a solid mixed mass of minerals floated into the picture.

That mixed mass of minerals added more elements to all that existed. It created a perfect place, an environment, where “God” (The Elements) and man (Made in the image and likeness of “God” (The Elements)) could and did “Thrive.”

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Genesis:1:28)

Replenish – to fill or (intransitively) be full {of} in a wide application (literally and figuratively): – {accomplish} {confirm} + {consecrate} be at an {end} be {expired} be {fenced} {fill} {fulfil} ({be} {become} X {draw} give {in} go) fully ({-ly} -ly {set} {tale}) [over-] {flow} {fulness} {furnish} gather ({selves} {together}) {presume} {replenish} {satisfy} {set} {space} take a [hand-] {full} + have wholly.

This is the kind of thing that angers me. The authors of the Strong’s Concordance defined the word “Replenish” with the above definition; to fill.

Yet, at the same time, when one looks up the word, “Replenish” under its reference number H4390, one finds that the word, “Replenish” is used only two times in the entire bible.

It’s used once in Genesis:1:28 and again in Genesis:9:1.

I can understand someone making the mistake of thinking that the word “Replenish” means to fill or be full of, if there was only the one verse; Genesis:1:28.

And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. (Genesis:9:1)

But, to have the only other time the word “Replenish” is used, in the entire bible, read the above, in Genesis:9:1?!

Remember, the story of Noah was when God (The Elements), in this case the “Water,” destroyed every living thing on earth except Noah, his family and the animals that Noah took with him on the ark.

After the flood, God said to Noah, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.”

It’s obvious that the word “Replenish” means; fill (something) up again!

Or

Restore (a stock or supply) to a former level or condition, right?!

I said all that to say this, if God (The Elements) blessed them, and God (The Elements) said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, then that means that there was something on earth that’s wasn’t there any more…

Also, if on that “Day,” God (The Elements) said, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,” then that tells me that the word “Day” is being used figuratively.

A “Day” refers to a space of time; an “Age;” not literally, from sunrise to sunset or from one sunset to the next.

Day – to be hot; a day (as the warm {hours}) whether literally (from sunrise to {sunset} or from one sunset to the {next}) or figuratively (a space of time defined by an associated {term}) (often used adverbially): – {age} + {always} + {chronicles}.

Age – a distinct period of history.

Anyway,

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. (Genesis:1:29)

And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. (Genesis:1:30)

Verses twenty-nine and thirty of Genesis chapter one, were written, just like before, to not only make the word, “God” a character, but to also make that which was made in the image and likeness of “God” into a character.

The phrase, “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat, coupled with the phrase, “And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat, is an attempt by the author to draw parallels between the man, who resembled “God” and the creatures.

It’s like the author is saying that man, who was like “God;” a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny little star inside a bubble, (A spark) inside a tiny, tiny, tiny little bubble, (The Earth) inside a gigantic, galaxy size bubble, (The Universe) actually ate like creatures from the water and creatures from the earth!

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Genesis:1:31)
