Genesis 1:14-19  Day Four of Creation

14 Then Elohiym said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so. 16 Then 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. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 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. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.    NKJV

 

The solar system was created the fourth day with many purposes:

  1. To divide the day from the night giving us time for work and rest.
  2. For signs as used in every new work that God does through out the history of mankind. Signs are found many times in prophecy; signs of coming events such as in the End Time, described in prophecy both Old & New Testaments “when the sun, moon, and the stars will be darkened” described in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Joel, Matthew, Luke, and Revelation.
  3. For counting time in days and years.
  4. To give light on the earth.
  5. To rule over the day and the night.
  6. To divide the light from the darkness.
  7. And again, God wanted us to distinguish between the long time expanse often applied to the word day and a single turn of the earth by using the term “evening and morning” for clarifying and defining the time expanse actually used.

Y      Again God declared His work of creation as “Good.”
