2 And on the seventh day God ended the work that he had done; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had made.
5 God called the light "Day," and the darkness he called "Night." And the evening and the morning were the first day. [This day and night is not an earth day or earth night; it is simply the name of the spiritual light and darkness that he created. Paul confirms this writing: You are all the children of light, and the children of the day; we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 1 Thes 5:5. The first day that is written here is not the day of the earth; the moon and sun and stars had not yet been created. The time of this day of God's could be thousands or millions of years: Beloved, do not be ignorant of this one thing, that one day with the Lord is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 2 Pet 3:8.]
|Hebrews 4:10 |
10 For he who has entered into his rest, has also ceased from his own works,3 as God did from His. [To cease from your own works, done by your own will, cease your own plans, cease your own decisions, and instead to be directed by God to do His will on earth as in heaven, which works are then to His glory, which works are prompted by and energized by Him.]
