SUN AND MOON “NOT” CREATED ON DAY
those who believe the Sun and moon was created on day four, here is something to consider. The word appointed in Psm- 104:19
"He "appointed" (or made) the moon for "seasons"
(Feasts or Sabbaths) is the same Hebrew word found in Gen. 1:14. Where it says "He "made" (appointed) two great lights" The word MADE
means APPOINTED in Hebrew.
The question is, When did He appoint (make) the moon for Seasons? Was it not in Genesis 1: 14 where
it says He made/appointed the great lights for seasons??
The Scripture is teaching that
there were two great lights appointed on day four for a purpose (calendar) not created on day four. They were placed in the firmament of the heaven in such a way not only to give light on the earth but for
a calendar to beacon the appointments of YHWH.
When you make someone captain of a team, or
appoint them to be captain, it doesn't mean they were not already there for you to make or appoint them captain, epically
if you had already called the team together in the beginning before you made or appointed someone captain. (Both Heaven AND Earth were created before He worked on them for 6 days and on day 4, two great lights were appointed
for a special task, other than divide the light from the darkness which it was already doing before
day 4, see Gen-1.)
Remember you had evening and morning, evening and morning, evening and morning, before day four. You also had light, green things, night and day, creation of
the Heavens, Earth, etc before He made/appointed the sun and moon to rule
and for the calendar.
Where do you think they were before He appointed them???
In the Tanach, Stone edition,
commentary by a well known Hebrew Scholar named Rashi, in his comments on Gen-1:14 it says " The luminaries, which had been created on the first day, were set in place on the
forth" (work day), there is no evidence what so ever to support
the theory that the great lights were created on day four, but were appointed on the 4th work day, or advanced upon for His
Even if the sun and moon were created on day 4, it would still be in plenty of time to do what they were
created for and that is for a beacon of the appointments. “Let them be for days and years signs
(beacons) and seasons (appointments)” yes, even if the sun and moon were created on day four they would be in plenty
of time to beacon the appointments including the weekly appointment, after the six workdays and even if they were created
on day four it would not made day four the first day of the year or the first day of the month because
it does not say what phase the moon was in or what position the sun was in on day four. I believe they BOTH would have been
in a 4th work day of the Year and Month, so as to reflect the prievous days, which any calendar will do.
