Gen 1:31

Gen 1:31 ESV – And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

What God made was very good. It isn’t a passive assessment from the Creator, it is an engaged, intimate assessment. Each step has been received by God and affirmed as good, not just passing. Each piece has been received and in some cases, blessed and directed.

All of this work, all of this creation occurred in 6 cycles called “days”. There is much debate about how long a day is, how a day could literally be without a sun for the first couple of cycles etc… but all that we are sure of is the Creator has initiated this creation, supervised it, and is pleased with it. And this occurred in 6 cycles of time, setting a pattern and a rhythm to creation itself.

Ive used the name Yahweh or Yah in these accounts and I truly shouldn’t have. Because at this point of revelation, God is a being, yet not named. God is a title, and God is the creator, yet nothing more is known about God. We infer a few things, such as mankind is in God’s image, and mankind is male and female. God created everything that is created, including all the rules and laws governing that creation. And Gods blessing is given to at least 3 distinct parts of creation, birds, fish, and mankind.
