20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
It is not clear which day this occurs, but I favour the view this is significantly after the 7 day creation.
I do not think this applies to names like giraffe, elephant etc but more names for animals present in the garden, more like pet names (and only animals that could talk) like Simba and Nala ! It does not say he named ‘baramin’ kinds. I do not think it is just naming but a proclamation of animals and their roles. (More later) lKerr confirms this is referring to specific and not generic names. I think Adam’s spirit gives something in this process. Much more in the Kosmos-
21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Made (bana) meaning to build, a new word for this Genesis account. There is no mention of Eve’s spirit being breathed in and I favour the view that Eve’s spirit was cleaved from Adam’s. Perhaps there is more emphasis on copying man’s design. I think had Eve had a new ‘ruah’ breathed into her it would be a ‘creation’, but the ‘ruah’ was Adam’s design and from Adam.
Adam suffered a wound in his side to have a bride as did Jesus on the cross (A similitude as pointed out by Chuck Missler’s in: ‘A Genesis Commentary’) here and both giving a part of their spirit for a bride.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Made (asah) meaning to make, finalise and bring together, this applying to all of heaven and earth and everything in them.
No contradictions to Gap Theory here and this is consistent with the use of ‘asah’ as described in this site.
Everything in the sentence was acted upon in that week. Of course, some of the organisms were created new, some were modifications of something old, some were rearrangements of something old, some were exact copies of something old and some were a combination of all of these processes.
Jeremiah 32:17 (KJV)
Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee.
The order of heaven first then earth leads me to believe he is talking about the first or both creations. Stretched out arm may even be literal and may only apply to the first creation. No contradictions to the Long Life-
Gen 2:4. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth… …when they were created, ……..
………………….in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens
Gen 5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam…In the day that God created man,…
………………….in the likeness of God made he him
Parallel lines? Syntax Synchronisation?
The similarity in sentence structure is apparent.
If you study the above verses and read them over and over, as I have done, you cannot help but come to the conclusion that God is describing different generations (In the case of Heaven and earth-
Too many Biblical hints at a Gap to be a coincidence?
Did Jesus himself confirm Gap Theory?
**Similitude** Mist and God here
**Similitude** The Holy Spirit/Jesus
More than just Adam #1
**Scripture** More than just Adam #2
Genesis 2 -
(Similitudes abound giving revelation aplenty)
The Genesis Similitudes-
1.Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
God reverts back to the order of the original statement of Genesis 1:1-
However, as I will suggest later there is still more creative work to do on man though. How can this be in light of the completion statement above which seems to suggest it is all complete? I think God views humans at this point as heavenly citizens and not a part of this ‘host’. Note, the host may refer to angels being created at this time, see The Kosmos Ruah Metaphor link at the bottom of this page
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
God rested from the work he had made not from the creations he had created, the Long Life-
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Note, God is again confirming there are two different acts, one of creation and one of making as He changes the rest statement and now he can rest from works not just made but also created. But the earlier part of the sentence describes God sanctifying the seventh day. So does the newly ‘created’ have to be sanctified before God can ‘rest’ from the process? Is it that the creation process is not completed until sanctification? This is consistent with the created ‘bara’ being different to ‘made’ and that made works had presumably, previously been sanctified too. When? The whole is evidence for Gap Theory.
In Genesis 1-
So, God chose this exact moment when the Earth remake is completed (born again) to describe a different and more intimate relationship with a name change. In similitude, man also has a more intimate relationship with God when born again. I believe, the parallel here is striking, obvious and very strong evidence for Gap theory. Not only that, but to absolutely confirm matters the next verses describe what these born again changes (in Eden and then similitude man’spirit) are with a powerful metaphor with Eden and The Holy Spirit/Jesus.
***I believe Jesus even confirms this in scripture too***.
See the links on the margin opposite. Would God let this happen as a coincidence?
The Definitive Gap Confirmation Statement
4. These are the generations (towledah) of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.
One of my favourite sentences in the entire Bible, crammed full of information. This is, in my opinion, the definitive Gap Theory confirmation statement and it is also points to God creating more humans than Adam and Eve, more on that later. I know most of you will find this shocking but there is much biblical evidence for this, bear with me.
Generations after 7 Days?
The first plain meaning of the text is generations in the plural which would seem to indicate there have been different generations or manifestations of the ‘earth and the heavens’-
It would make little sense to talk about generations after just seven days of creation..
At the end of six days, would God say this is the generations (plural) of Heaven and earth? He might say this is how I generated heaven but the use of the words ‘asah’ or ‘bara’ would seem more appropriate.
Note the chronology of this first sentence is heaven followed by earth and they were created and in this order corresponds with Genesis 1:1. The second part of the sentence the order is reversed to correspond to the Genesis 1:3-
I suggest there are no multiple coincidences like this In the Bible, God would not let that happen. The consistency of the use of the terms made and created make for strong evidence for a gap.
There are 13 ‘towledah’ statements in Genesis, Genesis 2:4 is the first, the next 12 uses of ‘towledah’ all, initially, attach the term towledah to somebody/something (eg this is the book of the generations of Adam, these are the generations of Noah) and then the subsequent text describes the offspring or subsequent/previous generations/descendants,
In consistency with this, Genesis 2:4 attaches generations to ‘heaven and earth’ and then describes the Genesis 6 days as a subsequent future generation or ‘proceedings’ of that Earth and Heaven.
I repeat even on its own this is very strong evidence of a previous creation and Gap Theory.
(Genesis 5:1 KJV)) (Genesis 6:9 KJV) (Genesis 10:1(KJV) (Genesis 10:32 KJV) (Genesis.11:10.(KJV)) (Genesis 11:27 (KJV)) (Genesis 25:12-
When Adam is mentioned with ‘towledah’ in Genesis 5:1 it is followed by ‘in the day that God created man’. It does not do this for most of the other subsequent uses of towledah’. It is almost as if the text is saying this is the origin (and it is important) of it all and it is acknowledging this by the reference to it and also pointing out it is a creative (wholly new from God) event by God himself. The subsequent named generations are not given this addition to their description and the text describes how they came about and this is by usually by normal human reproduction. No creation is needed the main ‘making’ is human.
But then Genesis 2:4 does a similar thing with the heavens and the earth and follows it by ‘…of the heavens and of the earth when they were created’. It is almost as if the text is saying this is the origin of it all and it is acknowledging this by the reference to it and pointing out it is a creative (wholly new ) event. By God himself. The subsequent earth and heaven are ‘just’ made, no creation emphasis is needed.
I suggest that, in consistency with the use of the word towledah this strongly supports Gap Theory as the text in effect describes the original created earth and the‘next’ generation of the ‘made’ (‘refurbished’) earth and heavens.
In my opinion, this sentence alone is enough to confirm Gap Theory.
Repeating Sentience Structure Giving Meaning and an Astonishing Revelation?
Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created
If God is using repeating sentence structures to give us more information then there is an astonishing revelation to be seen. Please note: I suggest, ‘In the day’ seems to mean both ‘when’ the statement is issued and be a mark of importance.
So God called their (plural) name Adam. Adam and Eve can not both be called Adam. (This is translated as mankind in the NKJV). By using the term ‘in the day’ twice and attaching it to two different groups, one, Adam and two, Mankind? Is God showing the importance of two events? A second creative event(s) involving creating more humans than just Adam and Eve? Much more on this later. See this site here ‘Jesus says there’s a Gap’
For a summary of this possibly astonishing revelation click in the link in the margin #1 and #2 or more detail here
All about Jesus in Similitudes From Here On
As well as the plain text meaning the next verses act as powerful similitudes likening Eden to the born again spiritual gifts imparted to us by Jesus and The Holy Spirit. See the similitudes/scripture link above/opposite verse 4.
5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
Here God is giving us more detail on day 3, (Genesis 1:11-
God reveals that some vegetation was already fully grown and some was seeded but before both of these came to fruition God watered the ground not by rain but by a mist rising from the ground. This is similar but not identical water cycle to creation 1 and in my opinion there was no rain until after Noah’s flood.
lKerr has revealed that the first creation of Genesis 1:1 is watered just from the water vapour shield above, differing significantly from the second creation of Genesis 1:3-
7 And the LORD God formed (yatsar) man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
God is giving us more detail about day 6 but also possibly day 3. See below
Formed (yatsar) like a potter uses clay, this word emphasises and is often accompanied by the constituents used in the shaping process. lKerr describes the relevance and importance of this: If man is to have domain over animals and the whole Earth then he must be made of the same materials to satisfy some unknown deep requirement. (Analogous to the same operating systems in computing?). This may be particularly relevant with regard to the miraculous. This gives us another reason for biological similarity in the design of man and animals. Angelic beings and the demonic, thus, do not have and can never have the same authority as humans.
lKerr also described the creation process as being different when creating in the spiritual realm and the physical realm for the same reason.
God is revealing the importance of it here.
It should be noted that verse 5 describes a time ‘before’ plants were in the ground and ‘before’ herbs grew. The subsequent text describing mist rising form the earth and God forming man from the dust may therefor, all be before this on the third day. But we know man was made on day 6. It could mean that man was finished day 6 but started on day 3. Prophetic revelations have been mainly form Kat Kerr on this site but Kerr herself describes a revelation by Robin Bullock here as powerful. It does describe a three day process of making man and leaving him in the earth for those three days and then bringing him to life on day 6, providing a very powerful metaphor for Christ and these verses 5-
8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
It is not clear when God planted this garden but Exodus 20:11 tell us it is likely within the 6 day creation and this may be day 3 with other plants or day 6 with Adam and the animals
God does not say created, made or formed but made to grow.
Plants for the Garden of Eden are not normal earthly plants, but plants from heaven, seeds from heaven made to grow here. l(Kat Kerr)
As the plants were made in heaven originally, then I can speculate that there may be a Garden of Eden in Heaven or on the previous first creation too which may explain Satan’s presence in there as mentioned in (Ezekiel 28:13-
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
God is giving some background information and again I think this is another hint that the hydrological cycle is different.
This verse also provides a very powerful metaphor and type of Eden with The Holy Spirit/Jesus. Out of the belly of the earth through Eden rivers flow and out of our bellies through The Holy Spirit and Jesus rivers of living water flow. See the link in the margin opposite verse 4 above for more detail on this vastly important repeating theme or type that only really works with Gap Theory (born again earth, born again man, redeemed mankind). More detail on this is in ‘Biblical Evidence of a Gap’ on this site here.
Noah’s flood judgment provides another similitude when compared with the first world judgement, see the link in the margin .
15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed (yatsar) every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
Formed again meaning ‘consisting of’, or ‘made from’ the material source described.
The Hebrew tense can mean ‘had formed’ but both are compatible with this being day 6
This is describing animals and birds made in day 5 and day 6 and God is stressing the importance of the components used. This means that animals and birds brought forth from the sea are made from the elements found in the earth/soil. The consistent idea is that we have to be made of the same materials and again this further shows that design and constituents are important in order to have dominion. Biological similarity is again being emphasised. This also provides a powerful similitude revealing the make up and origin of nephesh chayyah spirits in the Kosmos-
