Did the light come from the sun on the first day?

Postby Watchman555 » 14 Mar 2014, 17:15

In the beginning when Yahuah said, “Let there be light” some have claimed that this light was a radiance coming from Elohim and that the sun and moon were not “created” until the fourth day. Here is a quick breakdown of why this is not the case.

Where does the light shine from that causes the light (day) and the absence of the light where is darkness (night). Is it not the sun? Logical conclusion - the light comes from the sun; before the light of the sun there was no measuring of the days going past. The first three days are marked by the day/light, then came evening, then came morning. What we do see is that there is no difference from the days passing in the first three days and the fourth, fifth, sixth, etc... they all pass in the same manner because the light is coming from the sun.

Are the sun and the moon in the heavens? If the answer to that is "yes" would we not assume that the sun and the moon were created as well as the earth "in the beginning"? If this is not the case, then for the first three days one would have to claim that the light that shone was somehow radiance from Yahuah or Yahusha; that is the stance that some people take. But even in the first three days we know that there is light/day, darkness/night, and the evening and morning mixing periods, so one would have to conclude that the light radiating from Elohim was only directional (obviously if there was darkness on the earth) and that light that came from Elohim would not have been all-encompassing. It would seem that if this light was emanating from Elohim then the whole of the earth would be engulfed in this light, but we know the Scripture tells us in the first three days there was darkness and light and this is no different from the darkness and light that we see every day.

Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine in it, for the esteem of Elohim lightened it, and the Lamb is its lamp.
Rev 21:24 And the gentiles, of those who are saved, shall walk in its light, and the sovereigns of the earth bring their esteem into it.
Rev 21:25 And its gates shall not be shut at all by day, for night shall not be there.

According to Revelation we can gain an understanding of Elohim lighting the city - no need of the sun or the moon, but notice v 25? For night shall not be there. IF it was Elohim Who shown His light in the beginning then we can understand that night should not have been there. So, in the beginning if the light was emanating from Yahuah the night/darkness should have been nowhere to be found for the first three days.

One more Scripture to add to Revelation to confirm that in the beginning the light that came to be was not the light from Elohim as in His radiance:

1Jn 1:5 And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that Elohim is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

If there is no darkness in Elohim at all it would not be a logical conclusion that the first three days was a light of radiance from Yahuah Himself.
