The gap that people are talking about in creation is not a theory but a fact. What really am I saying!! I am trying to point out to us all that yes the gap is in scripture because Torah did tell us about the big explosion before creation – I already cover this in my last study the earth is spherical.
The Torah opens with these words בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ: (In the beginning Elohim created the shamayim and the earth.). Hear me, many wonder about this – how can this say in the beginning when in fact the earth was created in day 3 – so this confused the mind but if you study it in the Hebrew you will find your answer.
The scripture also tells us that in day 2 the shamayim/heavens was created. but what really is causing this confusion is the first Hebrew letter that begins the word Bereshit that letter is this
בְּ – in a – בַּ in the
With those letters it shows two possibilities in which the scripture in Bereishit can be read – bā means in the beginning or bə in a beginning. If we say it is in the beginning then the question will rise what is in the beginning. Here is where I begin this journey finding what is right. The Torah says in a beginning, this statement used here give us the understanding that the six days of creation is true. Now we are getting more deep with this information because this six days of creation is now falling in line – the first day of creation starts with YHWH’s judgment – watch this: the Torah says, in the beginning, Elohim created the shamayim and the earth which goes to say both these two elements were in existence before man was created therefore seeing that the shamayim and the earth were in exsistence before man was created who then occupied shamayim and the earth? Looking at these words, in the beginning, tells me what I share above. Now the scripture doesn’t leave us in the dark it indeed tells us thru the nebi’im/prophets that it was the malak’im/angles who were on earth. The book of Yesha’yahu/Isaiah tells us that due to ha’shatan high and mighty deeds he lift himself up against YHWH and opposes his rules so he was then judged for his action and this judgment is what begins literally in our creation as in a beginning.
Because looking at it very carefully from scripture man was not the beginning of creation our existence was never the beginning of creation. What’s my point here? I m saying the Torah tells us in the book of Bereishit that the shamayim and the earth was in existence therefore when the earth become תֹ֙הוּ֙/ṯō-hū (formless) and וָבֹ֔הוּ wā-ḇō-hū, (void) the scripture tells us this is Elohim putting judgment on the malak’im who rebel against him and in doing so Elohim then begin our world which entered into day 1 which in this time period Elohim begin his judgment against the enemy.
As we approach day 2 this is the beginning of the raqia which Elohim place in the midst of the waters. so we see that when Elohim created our world he destroy the earth as we find in day 1 – within this day his judgment was executed while preparing to create our world – which was now starting to process our day 1. After learning the truth people do ask then how can you translate the passage of the scripture but to be frank with you, the scripture was never put for man to decode, encode and even to question the way of rules – we just have to take what is said.
So now I can see the multiple levels as I dig within the Hebrew because from a human perspective you can only see as far as your understanding takes you but with the Hebrew insight we can translate Bereshit in two ways either it can be read in the beginning Elohim created the heaven and the earth or in a beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth. Now when we are reading it in a beginning it changes the whole perspective of thinking, because now it is coming into our physical world that he creates the heaven that surrounds the earth – the heaven that surrounds the atmosphere of the earth – the heaven which Elohim refers to as being the upper room
YHWH doesn’t reside in the heaven as some men believe he does but the Torah tells us that he וָבֹ֔הוּ wā-ḇō-hū, (hovers) ־ ‘al- (over) פְּנֵ֥י pə-nê (the face) הַמָּֽיִם׃ ham-mā-yim. (of the waters)
we are the created aftermath – you see after the repercussion that ha’shatan had caused by his rebellion this is what brings us into being. Another vital point that we need to understand that the Torah is telling us there are two beginnings and not one or else how does the nahash/ serpent gets into the garden if we are only looking at it from a literal standpoint. Now this is what the scientists call the gap – they say in creation a huge space is beeing seen out there– but they had no knowledge what it is so they call it a theory – like I mention earlier people are only moving into a literal way zoom therefore if they can’t see it to them it is a myth but its not it is a reality.
Heaven – Earth and the Malak’im Elohim refers to as mayim. when we read yom echad in Bereshit it means that this event had far taken place before day 1 of creation – if it was not so it would have been read yom reshon – this yom echad was what finished that time period and now begins our time period,
you see understanding is a very powerful tool because if I don’t have the knowledge to know that we were created the aftermath and not the first then I would have been wondering how did the serpent get in the garden. but because I know that we are created the aftermath there is no confusion in my mind as to how the serpent enters the garden. Hear me on this ha’shatan is not man’s friend the quicker we get that will be beneficial for us because in the Torah we see where he trifle’s with man’s nephesh/soul by allowing them to walk in that sin but his plot was to see man lost for eternity not just for a short while and then after Teshuvah. His intention was to destroy us, how many of us believe this???
The universe was never meant to be forever the Torah tells us that it shall be destroyed – the scientists have only partial information by knowing in parts that the world shall be destroyed but by what means they don’t know. see ha’shatan and his army co-lead in the rebellion, they are the ones who break the wall down in the garden and in my opinion he thought the world would have come to an end but like the scientist who only have it in part cannot accomplish the task until YHWH said so it must be in the father’s time then the end will come.
