Let Light Be

and God says, “Let light be”; and light is.

(Genesis 1:3) LSV

When God said, let light be, the lamb of God was slain from the foundation of the world. That’s why it went dark at the end of the first day, the second occurrence of darkness that we have to account for, called night.

Refuse Evil and Choose Good

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. For before the Child shall know to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land that you dread will be forsaken by both her kings.

(Isaiah 7:14-16) NKJV

People use this passage to support the idea that children begin life in a state of innocence, however, it’s not clear why. Before a child knows how to refuse evil and choose good they would do either with no regard for the consequence. This doesn’t make them innocent, it makes them vulnerable. That’s why a child has to be protected and shown what’s right and wrong.

Angels That Sinned

By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

(1 Peter 3:19-20) KJV

The dispensation of conscience, the time immediately after the fall of man when Adam and Eve were banished from the garden of Eden, we’ve also deduced was the first purification of heaven.

Earth’s Form Fits its Function

Planet earth on the second day as concentric layers of sediment around a gravitational singularity

For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

(Isaiah 45:18) KJV

The creation of gravity caused the majority of the darkness and corruption in the universe to accumulate at the center of creation. This became the body of the Earth. The majority of light and purity accumulated in heaven.

Sin and Corruption

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.

(Genesis 2:17) KJV

Why was there a tree of knowledge of good and evil if God had created a perfect world? God didn’t create a perfect world, he created a corrupted one. Now we can understand the difference between corruption and sin.

Our Corrupted World

So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

(Genesis 6:12) NKJV

We live in a world which is inherently corrupt, and we’re not talking about money and finance, we’re talking entropy and nuclear decay. It’s as fundamental to our makeup as proton and neutrons. Protons are light, neutrons are darkness. That’s how deep the corruption is.

Out of the Heart

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.

(Matthew 15:19) NKJV

Jesus was asked why he didn’t stop his disciples from eating before they had washed their hands. He was very direct in pointing out that we’re not defiled by what we put into our mouths, even if our hands are dirty. We’re defiled by what comes out of our mouths, and that starts in the corruption of our heart.
