6 Days Or 6000 Years of Creation

On January 3, 2014, in Bible Lessons, by Milton Carnes

2 Peter 3:8 King James Version (KJV)
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with YHUH as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Psalm 90:4 King James Version (KJV)
For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

A few questions that need to be asked. When do we know to make the substitution; a day means 1000 years or vice versa. Secondly, if the DAY is called LIGHT in Genesis 1:5, wouldn't that mean that the day is the same as 1000 years? What about the night? Remember, Elohim (Alahiym) did not call the night/darkness DAY.

According to Genesis 1:14-16, the years are determined by the sun, moon, and stars. How were the years determined previously in Genesis 1:1-13 being that the sun, moon, and stars were not created until the 4000th year if a day is the same as 1000 years?

Let us do some transposition on Genesis 1 & 2 since a day is supposed to be the same as 1000 years:

Genesis 1

1 In the beginning Elohim (Alahiym) created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim (Alahiym) moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And Elohim (Alahiym) said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And Elohim (Alahiym) saw the light, that it was good: and Elohim (Alahiym) divided the light from the darkness.

5 And Elohim (Alahiym) called the light Day (1000 years?), and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day (1000 years).

8 And Elohim (Alahiym) called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day (2000th years).

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day (3000th years).

14 And Elohim (Alahiym) said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day (1000 years?) From the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

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

16 And Elohim (Alahiym) made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day (1000 years?), and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And Elohim (Alahiym) set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day (1000 years?) and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and Elohim (Alahiym) saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day (4000th years).

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day (5000th years).

27 So Elohim (Alahiym) created man in his own image, in the image of Elohim (Alahiym) created he him; male and female created he them.

31 And Elohim (Alahiym) saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (6000th years)

Genesis 2

1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2 And on the seventh day (7000th year) Elohim (Alahiym) ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day (7000th year) from all his work which he had made

3 And Elohim (Alahiym) blessed the seventh day (7000th year), and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which Elohim (Alahiym) created and made.

Let the Scriptures Speak:

Exodus 20:8-11 King James Version (KJV)

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of YHUH thy Elohim (Alahiym): in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days YHUH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YHUH blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

What should we get from this? Six days of work and rest on the seventh or Sabbath day. Why? Because YHUH made the heaven and earth in six days and rested the Sabbath or seventh day. See the correlation?

What about 2 Peter 3:8 and Psalm 90:4? In context, these passages simply mean that YHUH is not affected by time. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

If the sun, moon, and stars determine the year, that would mean that they would have been created before the first day or first 1000th year. There is no scriptural evidence to prove this. We have no authority to add to the word of YHUH.
