Thank you for this post! You raise a very interesting point of view that is worthy of prayer and study. I will study this some more. If there is any confusion I am convinced that it is in our understanding, not something wrong with the bible. God bless brother and I will look into this in the coming days. Thank you again and I will speak with you again soon. GB

Yeah, the only Aliens are the people that are really out there waiting for the Mothership.

YOU: Some believe this too to be literal. I do not.

Not trying to confuse the literal and spiritual creation to my earlier post, but, I was building a foundation, leading too, how the 7 days are spiritual by explaining how God first created the natural. In the same manner, word and spirit.

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead;

Seven Spiritual Days

1st day - Created Light (Life, Jesus, Word, Truth) and separated Him, not it, but him, from Darkness (Night, Ignorance, Sin, Death, Grave, Father of Lies Satan Etc.)
2nd day - The New Heaven, which, we now see within us
3rd day - The New Earth, which, is the Glorified body of Christ our new body.
The only way we can come into this new body, is our body must be crucified with him, to be in the likeness or image of his Resurrection.

The first three days have to do with His body and what is within. On the first day by the word and Spirit God created his son in his image. 2nd day is the home of both the Father and Son, and the 3rd day is the glorified body which houses the first two days.

Jesus was and is the New Heaven and New Earth (the glorified body of Jesus), and the Light he called Day, (Spirit and Word) is the Life that was in him. We must first die, and be crucified, to be born again or to be in the likeness of his image.

Therefore, 6th day, God created us in his image or it is fair to say as he said on the 6th day in their image and likeness. "Let us make man in OUR image and in OUR likeness, by being born again after the Water (Word) and Spirit.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.

He is talking about being born again and us coming into his image after the image of our Father and Son, in their likeness, as one Spirit. The 6th day. Now we can enter into his rest which is the seventh day.

Oh and by the way, just a little something else to chew on. You can find all the names of the seven days in Isaiah.

Count how many Names of one Spirit must be in us to be complete

Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him (1), the spirit of wisdom (2) and understanding (3), the spirit of counsel (4) and might (5), the spirit of knowledge (6) and of the fear (7) of the LORD;

The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, that is the 7th day of course.

Get ready for this one. Remember I told you there was an 8th Day?

Isaiah 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding (#8) in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

The Word (Jesus) is quick and powerful than any two edged sword. Circumcision of the heart and mind. Every child born of the Hebrew were to be circumcised on the 8th day. This is a very deep teaching given to me by God. The deep calls for the deep. It will take some studying for some to see this but, you can get revelations on top of revelations of the word, there is no end, to how deep and how high we can go, it is without measure.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Ah...you raise some very good points brother! I agree with everything you are saying. I guess also it comes down to the interpretation of the 7 days of creation. Some believe this too to be literal. I do not. That being said, I have no problem with literal Adam being created 6,000 years ago. I believe that Adam was the first made in the image of God and able to contain the Spirit of God. As for making the heavens and earth that is certainly something more symbolic there as I believe the earth to be 4.5 billion years old as science states.

I find that science either decreases your belief in God or increases it. To me knowing how vast the universe is just makes God that much more magnificent. For the record I also believe that He is the God of the universe and others as well. I am not big on aliens so much but I certainly believe in other life somewhere out there but I am getting off topic. GB

God Bless Brother,
I hope all is well with your soul even in the mist of trials and attacks of the enemy.

You: God seems to be creating literal, physical things which would be difficult to spiritualize.

Me: Yes, they were literal and physical things brought forth by the Word and Spirit of God as he spoke it to happen.

Spirit

Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This [is] the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit

Remember, when God started creating? It started out like this, "God (spirit) Said, "Let there be." The Word came forth after "God Said."

Word

Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

The Spiritual worlds (plural) and natural world (singular) were created and formed by the Spirit (God) and Word (Jesus). John 1:14 The Word made flesh

So, in the beginning you see both the Father and Son working together to bring forth life and the only time they were separated was when Jesus was on the cross. Jesus said that the words he speaks they are spirit and they are life, for he is the light and the light is the life of men. Men loved darkness rather than the light.

By the same word and Spirit he is creating within us a new creature and a new world, because old things have passed away and within me I see a New Heaven and a New Earth.

Which, brings me to being born again into the kingdom of God of the water (word) and Spirit. Ephesians 5:26 Sanctified and cleansed by the washing of water, by the word. People are still walking after Johns Baptism, instead of Jesus baptism.

Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one BAPTISM
Ephesians 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.


God Bless Brother

Thank you for this post brother. Some good points here. I can see that the passage has a deeper spiritual meaning with the Night and Day. I do not believe that these are literal days. The confusing part is the days after the first day. God seems to be creating literal, physical things which would be difficult to spiritualize. Anyhow I find Genesis harder to understand than Revelation some of the time. Please let me know about your videos as we may post some of them here if that is ok with you. God bless!

Yes, without a doubt. The First 7 days are spiritual days.

Genesis 1:14 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:

The calander days did not begin until the forth day. Should that not be the 1st day instead of the 4th day? Second thought. He seperated day (light) from Night (Darkness) on the 1st day. Again, two different types of light and darkness as God creating male and female on the 6th day compared to forming man and then woman from Adams ribs on the 8th day.

I hope to make a video on these subjects and more on youtube as soon as I am out of the Army Reserves. I will be happy to share any revelations God has you working on. I have much to say on your subjects posted here.

God Bless you my brother
