Theistic evolutionist asked: “How many millions of years were between the Creation of the Heavens and the Earth and the first man and woman?”
Jesus/Elohim created the Heavens, the Earth, life, in six-literal days as the Hebrew “yom,” when used in conjunction with a time frame such as an “evening and morning,” will always denote a literal 24-hour day. The Earth was created approximately 6021-years ago and this can be calculated through Messiah’s genealogy in Luke 3 by counting back to Adam through the generations. Jesus established the “when” of creation via the male and female as He told us the male and female were “from the beginning of creation”. It’s important to remember that Jesus created a mature Earth just as He, the Father, the Spirit, (Us, Our, Genesis 1:26-28) created a mature Adam and Eve; therefore, mankind will NEVER date the Earth (Ecclesiastes 3:11) and C-14 dating is useless.
Also, the Heavens and the Earth were NOT created ex nihilo but Jesus was commissioned by the Father (John 3:35, John 1, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1) to take elements from the unseen Spiritual World and fashion those elements into matter that is constrained by Time and physics (Hebrews 11:3)…this was done to create an acceptable battle ground for the war between Jesus and the Devil (1 John 3:8b; Genesis 3:15), a war that was initiated in the Kingdom before the beginning of Time…the destructive potential of that war was removed from the Kingdom and placed here upon this Earth to be dealt with apart from the Kingdom where nothing impure is permitted to exist (Revelation 21:27; Luke 10:18; Isaiah 14; Ezekiel 29:11+). In all of this, Elohim created with rapidity for cause.
My omnipotent God does not require millions or billions of years to create. Millions and billions of years are the necessary hogwash of Darwinists-Atheists who require long periods of time for the nonsense of evolution – descent with modification – abiogenesis…this is the work and deceit of the Devil.
