Pamphlet #6214 Genesis KC 5-1

 We now approach the eve of the seventh day,
the Lord's Day of rest

And so it was that the sixth day,
when flesh man was brought into being, finally came to an end.

We now approach the eve of the seventh day,
the Lord's Day of rest.

Genesis 2:1
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
The heavens and the earth "which are now" (2 Pet. 3:7) were finished,
and all the "host" of them.

Look up the word "host" in your Strong's concordance if you have one (and you should).

The Hebrew word is tsaba and it means a "mass of people, in waiting", i.e. the newly re-created heavens and earth are finished and the sons of God await their turn to "pass through this earth age" (no longer in angelic, celestial bodies) but, in a flesh and blood body, born of woman.

What a joyous occasion that must have been.

We read in the Book of Job how the sons of God, we/us God's originally created souls (angelic beings, God's children), shouted for joy at our Father's handiwork.

Job 38:1
Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, [2] Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
This statement by our Father to Job follows 34 chapters of "bologna", man's preaching,
by Job's three friends Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite
(he has to be the shortest man in the Bible if he's only a shuhite),
and Zophar the Naamathite.
[3] Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
Stand up and act like a man, Job!
[4] Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? [6] Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
[7] When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
It was a joyous occasion!
Genesis 2:2 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.

[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.

Mankind would be going forth and replenishing the earth during this seventh day, this millennium of rest.
[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,

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
