Genesis 1:9, Waters Gathered Genesis 1:9 Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so. 10 God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. Not the water above the sky
God Separated 3 Times Gen 1:4-5 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. Gen 1:7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it Gen 1:9 And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.
Genesis 1:9, Let Dry Ground Appear This is after the seas are gathered Completely opposite of atheistic, secular, evolutionary cosmology. Irreconcilable differences Either hot rock cooled and condensed vapor into water or God gathered the water to one place and then said “let dry ground appear” and it was so.
Genesis 1:9,…Let Dry GroundAppear… 2 Peter 3:3-7 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4 They will say, "Where is this coming he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." 5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by Gods word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.
Genesis 1:9,…Let Dry GroundAppear… Ps 24:1-2 The earth is the Lords, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; 2 for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters. No Big Bang cosmology here. "Psalm 95:5 The sea is His, for it was He who made it, And His hands formed the dry land." "Psalm 95:6 Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker."
Let Dry Ground Appear, But How? "Psalm 104:5 He established the earth upon its foundations, So that it will not totter forever and ever. 6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters were standing above the mountains. 7 At Your rebuke they fled, At the sound of Your thunder they hurried away. 8 The mountains rose; the valleys sank down To the place which You established for them. 9 You set a boundary that they may not pass over, So that they will not return to cover the earth."

Genesis 1:9-10, Double Blessing Gen 1:10…God saw that it was good. Gen 1:12-13 ….And God saw that it was good. 13 the third day. Which day is the first day? Double blessing on the third day, Tuesday. No blessing on the second day, Monday. Amen! So all good Jewish girls try to hold their weddings on Tuesday, the third day, the “Day of Double Blessing” and it was no different in Jesus time. Why do you suppose the Holy Spirit arranged the text to have a Day Of Double Blessing?
Double Blessing On The Third Day? 1 Cor 15:4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures," "Matthew 12:40 for just as JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY…" Bible IN Five= Road to Emmaus Bible Study "Luke 24:13 And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus…. "21…it is the third day since these things happened." "Luke 24:27 Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures." Gen 1:10+12 the third day gets a double blessing
Double Blessing On The Third Day? "Genesis 22:4 On the third day Abraham raised his eyes and saw the place from a distance.“ "Hebrews 11:17 "By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son; 18 it was he to whom it was said, "IN ISAAC YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL BE CALLED.“ 19 He considered that God is able to raise people even from the dead, from which he also received him back as a type." “a type”= a Father who sacrificed His only begotten Son, who was received back from the dead on the third day
The Third Day, The Day Of Double Blessing John 2:1 “On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee…” Jesus 1st miracle Luke 24:46 and He said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, Acts 10:40 "God raised Him up on the third day… Genesis 12:3 …in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.“ "Acts 27:19 and on the third day they threw the ships tackle overboard with their own hands." No hope, good as dead, then... "Acts 27:24 saying, Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you all those who are sailing with you."
The Third Day, The Day Of Double Blessing "Leviticus 7:15 Now as for the flesh of the sacrifice of his thanksgiving peace offerings, it shall be eaten on the day of his offering..." " Leviticus 7:16 But if the sacrifice of his offering is a votive or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten on the day that he offers his sacrifice, and on the next day what is left of it may be eaten;" "Leviticus 7:18 So if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings should ever be eaten on the third day, he who offers it will not be accepted, and it will not be reckoned to his benefit. It shall be an offensive thing, and the person who eats of it will bear his own iniquity." After the third day Jesus is the only “peace offering”
Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown On“Bring Forth Grass” Let the earth bring forth grass. "The earth," or "the dry land," which had been separated from the waters, was as yet only bare soil, but it was about to be stocked with vegetable life; and it is noticeable that the trees, plants, and grasses-the three great divisions of the vegetable kingdom here mentioned- were not called into existence in the same way as the light and the air: they were made to grow, and they grew, as they do still, out of the ground; not, however, by the self-developing powers of the earth, but through the energy of creative power, without rain, dew, or any process of labour or cultivation. But nothing further is said and whether they were created in full maturity or the seeds were deposited in the soil, the quickening virtue was imparted to them by the command, Let the earth bring forth, young tenderness, grass, Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary
Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown said; …But nothing further is said and whether they were created in full maturity or the seeds were deposited in the soil, the quickening virtue was imparted to them by the command… But what does Scripture say? God didn‟t say “Let there be seeds” or “Let the land bring forth seeds”, He said… Gen 1:11 "Let the land produce vegetation:….” If God wants vegetation does He have to make a seed? If we can clone from a few cells (DNA)…
Full Maturity Or The Seeds? God creates with “apparent age”, “functional maturity” Henry Morris, Defenders Study Bible, pg 5 Hugh Ross says it would be deceitful for God to create like that., and that creation is the 67 book. "Genesis 1:11 Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them"; and it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good." "Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…” with “functional maturity”
Genesis 1:11, Seeds, Seeds, See "Genesis 1:11 Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them"; and it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good." When pollination occurs, the seeds start to grow, kicking in hormones that stimulate growth of the fruit.
Other Profound Questions Did Adam have a bellybutton? Did Eve have a bellybutton? If God likes bellybuttons, could they have them? Jesus had one, He is God, Gen 1:26 Thenhave one less rib than Eve make man in Adam God said, "Let us our image, in our likeness,… Did Adam have one less rib than Eve? Which came first the chicken or the egg? Gen 1:21 So God created ….every winged bird according to its kind.
Other Profound Questions This account isn‟t recorded in Scripture, the Talmud, or the Mishnah, but I heard that Adam woke up one night and Eve was tickling him. He asked her what she was doing, she said she was counting his ribs. She wanted to know if there was any other women.

Sun, Moon, and Stars 5 Reasons for them; to separate the day from the night signs to mark seasons and days and years to give light on the earth to govern the day and the night and to separate light from darkness.
Sun, Moon, and Stars So, did God instantly provide Sun, Moon, and Stars and the light from them, or did it take billions of “light years” for the light to get to earth? Light years is a speed, 186,000 miles per second. Speed is a ratio of time to distance. Time is a variable, affected by mass, acceleration and gravity. God says He stretched out the heavens in…
Isa 42:5 This is what God the Lord says — he who created the heavens and stretched them out, Isa 44:24 I am the Lord, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, Isa 45:12 It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts. Isa 51:13 that you forget the Lord your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, Jer 10:12 But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding.

New creation cosmology New creation cosmology Refined time dilation model appears in Journal of Creation without fanfare by Journal of Creation editorial staff Figure 1. By now, the waters above the heavens (Psalm 148:4) are probably a thin veil of ice particles, or scattered planet-sized spheres of water covered with thick crusts of ice. Published: 25 June 2009(GMT+10) Unless you have attended one of Russ Humphreys‟ seminars in the last few months, or else read the Journal of Creation cover to cover, you probably missed the birth of a new creation cosmology in the December 2008 issue. Quietly tucked into the back pages of an article by Dr. Humphreys on general relativity is a new answer to the light-transit-time problem—to explain how light traveled from the distant cosmos and reached Earth, all during one ordinary-length day on Earth, the fourth day of creation. Humphreys used an equation he derived in the August 2007 issue, a new solution to Einstein‟s gravity equations. The new solution accounts for the effect of the “waters that are above the heavens” mentioned in Psalm 148:4 (Figure 1), and the effect of God‟s creating the material of the stars during the fourth day (Isaiah 40:26). When the sphere reaches zero radius and disappears, Earth emerges, and immediately the light that has been following the sphere will reach Earth, even light that started billions of light- years away. Accordingly, the model says that early on the fourth day, God‟s creation of Sun and planets nearby plunges Earth into a zone of timelessness. In the zone all physical processes, including clocks, come to a complete stop. The spherical zone of timelessness expands out from the earth at the speed of light, engulfing the newly-created stars and galaxies. After reaching the most distant galaxies, the timeless zone reverses itself and begins shrinking back toward the earth at the speed of light. As it does so, it uncovers the new galaxies, which immediately begin emitting light again. Some of that light goes toward the center where the earth is, right behind the shrinking sphere of timelessness. Dr Humphreys: “When the sphere reaches zero radius and disappears, Earth emerges, and immediately the light that has been following the sphere will reach Earth, even light that started billions of light-years away. On the fourth day, “An observer on the night side of the earth would see a black sky one instant, and a sky filled with stars the next instant.” An observer on the night side of the earth would see a black sky one instant, and a sky filled with stars the next instant. This new cosmology springs from the same root as his 1994 cosmology in Starlight and Time, namely a cosmos with a center of mass, the earth near it (on a cosmological scale of distances), and expansion of space. (Dr John Hartnett has two creation cosmologies that have these features as well.) However, Dr Humphreys likes his new model better than his old one, saying it is clearer and simpler. Dr Hartnett agrees with that, saying that it solves the problem of time dilation for stars that are relatively near. We‟ve decided to make Humphreys‟ 2008 Journal of Creation article available earlier than normal, here on the CMI website. He hopes to submit an article to the website soon explaining the new cosmology in simple terms— no equations or graphs, but possibly some animated graphics. Warning: it will be understandable, but mind-stretching!
