Day

“And there was evening, and there was morning...” each day was complete (Gen 1:3ff).  The Jews measured each day from 6 p.m. one day until 6 p.m. the next, whereas other nations consider a day is from midnight to midnight.

  Live as if each day is your last –                                 one day it will be!

The Bible states, “In six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested on the seventh day” and we are commanded to keep this same pattern (Ex 20:11). This clears up any confusion that the creation days were not normal 24-hour days.

“Put on the full armour of God so when the day of evil [any moment of intense assault of Satan through temptation] comes, you may be able to stand” (Eph 5:16, 6:13).
