REV. HAMILTON PAGAN, M.A.'s comment on 2014-12-08 10:15:10:

Spiritually, there is a messge for us in the creation of day and night.the day shows man there is a new beginning, an new day, a new start, a new arising. the beginning of a new day points toward the beginning of a new life. we are start life all over again we can be born again and be spiritually renewed. we can become a new creature, an new man in Christ. God named the light day, and the darkness He named night. note two facts,1. god , not man named the light and darkness. this very significant. it shows the God is the Lord of both day and night, not man. Light and darkness are both part of God 's creation. both are good both have their purpose and function in God 's creation.

God could not have been talking in terms of the sunlight because it came later into the creation time frame. So what is the Light and secondly what is the darkness and why does God call them day and night?

I THINK IT WAS CREATION

 

Abdul Aziz's comment on 2014-01-23 09:03:20:

It is not the creation of earth or the universe in that sense. The universe is the uni (one) verse (word) that contains everything except the One who created it all. The earth is only the rational content in man's (human intellect)that guides to his spiritual destination(that man is truly indebted to G-d). The evening and the morning is the first day. This is consistent with how the human mind develops individually and collectively. Firstly the mind is in darkness (ignorance-evening) about its environment and then in time it becomes enlightened (morning). A light comes on in the human intellect. The scripture says also: The earth (the rational content-remember Adam was made from it) was without shape and form, it was void. Darkness covered the face of the deep and the spirit of G-d moved upon the face of the waters and G-d said, let there be light.

G-d Bless!

I'm confused, how can there be day and night, morning and evening without the sun?
