Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” This implies at least two heavens – the vast empty heaven surrounding planet earth, and God’s heavenly realm. Planet earth was without form or void. Were these created only 6000 years ago? Most likely they were created at a time when there was no time. But 6000 years ago, God separated the sea from the dry land and formed the mountains, hills, deserts, lakes, rivers, etc. on earth. Is earth only 6000 years old?
In one of our Bible classes at church someone said that in the Old Testament God sometimes appeared in a physical body. We also talked about the angel of the Lord who came to Abraham as being Christ.
