Was the Earth Created in Six Days?


No! The Earth was not created in Six Days. The scriptures plainly point out that the earth existed prior to the Six Creative Days on the earth. WE read, "Now the earth was formless and desolate, and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep, and God’s active force was moving about over the surface of the waters." (Genesis 1:2)


The Earth wasn't the first thing created in our Solar System, but rather, the Last thing created in our Solar System. Scientific carbon dating, dates our Earth to be about 4.5 Billion Years Old, which is relatively young to the rocks found on the earth from terrestrial sources that have been dated to be about 15 Billion Years Old.


However, the Bible speaks about a Creation prior to the Genesis 1:1 account. "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;  because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. " (Colossians 1:15-17)


"These are the things that the Amen says, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation by God" (Rev 3:14) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god. This one was in the beginning with God." The Word is the Beginning of Creation. See how nicely John 1:1 fits?


"Jehovah produced me as the beginning of his way, The earliest of his achievements of long ago. From ancient times I was installed, From the start, from times earlier than the earth.  When there were no deep waters, I was brought forth, When there were no springs overflowing with water." (Proverbs 8:22-24)


"When he prepared the heavens, I was there; When he marked out the horizon on the surface of the waters," (Proverbs 8:27)


"Then I was beside him as a master worker. I was the one he was especially fond of day by day; I rejoiced before him all the time;  I rejoiced over his habitable earth, And I was especially fond of the sons of men." (Proverbs 8:30-31)


"For the one finding me will find life, And he receives approval from Jehovah.  But the one who ignores me harms himself, And those who hate me love death.” (Proverbs 8:35-36)


"However, to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God." (1 Corinthians 1:24)


Jesus is 'the Christ, the son of the living God.' (Matthew 16:16) Would you welcome a
