Did God Create The World In 7 Days?

As we live our lives in such a fast-paced world, there is never enough time to do all the things that need to be done. I mean with work and family, chores, drive time, play-time, time to cook and eat, who has time to sleep? We can never get everything done that we seem to feel needs to be done but.

What Have you Really Done In The Past 7 Days?

Of all the things you have done this week, have you really thought about how God spoke this world into existence in only 7 days? I mean space, day and night, earth, water, trees, bugs, animals, and fish. He made everything in just a week.

If that’s not power, then I don’t know what is. The Word of God says in

Genesis 1: 1-5 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Then God said, ” Let there be light ” and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So evening and the morning was the first day.

Genesis 1: 6-8 Then God said ” Let there be a firmament in the mist of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus, God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

So in just 2 days Our lord made day and night and the Heavens above the waters. I don’t know about you but that seems like a lot to do in 48 hours. Let’s see what the next 2 days bring.

More Of Gods Creations

Genesis 1: 9-13

Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear” ;and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called the seas, and God saw that it was good.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in its self, on the earth” and it was so.

And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in its self according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the third day.

Genesis 1: 14-19

Then God said “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth” and it was so.

Then God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made stars as well. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. So evening and the morning were the forth day.

Four days in and we have day, night, land, grass, trees with fruit, stars, sun, moon, days and years. Seems like a lot of work for just 4 days, but its still early in the week.

So Many Things So little Time
Genesis 1: 20-23

Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let the birds fly above the earth across the firmament of the heavens.” So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to their kind. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” So evening and morning were the fifth day.

Genesis 1: 24-31

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creatures according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind” ; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. Male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.

And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yield seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yield seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food” ; and it was so. Then God saw everything that He made was good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

The 7th Day

Genesis 2: 1-7

Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

Conclusion

So to answer the question, did God create the world in seven days? The answer is No! He did it in six days. On day seven He rested. Sat back and enjoyed all He had done. Nothing we do in a week could ever compare to what the Lord our God has done. That is only the beginning, the start of what he has done.

I would love if I could get some feedback on this. What do you think about God making the world in six days?

Do you believe that we came from monkeys and why do you think that?

How do you think we came to be and why?

I look forward to reading your response’s and God bless everyone

  1. Hello Tommy and thank you for this post. All too often we forget the incredible power of God. Yes, he did create all things in six days. The world is too precisely planned and thought out to have merely been an accident. When we stop trying to fight our belief in God’s existence, and let his love, grace and spirit guide us, we find true joy and meaning in our lives. We must realize that, though we are given free will to make choices, it is God that plans the outcome of them. Trust in the lord and you will find He will bless you beyond what you can imagine. Thank you again, Michael

    1. You are very welcome Michael, I hope that people will soon come to realize this fact. As Jesus loves everyone I try to do the same.

  2. I remember growing up that there were 2 different versions of the story about how long it took God to create the world. One version said it all happened in a single day, and the other version had a story about it taking 7 days (actually 6, with the last day for rest). It is interesting that so many people have heard the version about the world being created in 7 days though… 

  3. Thank you for the post. I agree with you that God create the universe in six days. It seems that you want us to decide which one is right: Science has confirmed that the universe developed over billion of years or The bible say God created everything in six days.

    The answer may be no. The Bible’s text doesn’t require us to believe that creation was completed in six days. In fact, the words used in Genesis give room for God taking billions of years to create our universe.

    The Bible begins with this statement from God: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The definition of days from God may be different from those we use now.

    It is kind of you raising the fundamental question in religion and daily life, which let us to ponder …

    1. Seeing how a thousand years to us is a day to God, you could be correct in believing it was more than a week in our time.
