God is an Eternal Immortal Being who is not subject to limitation of time and space as well as night and day. God by His power and pleasure chose to create the world and reveal Himself to His creatures.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the Lord.
Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O Lord, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
God’s revelation is made known with His light in this world. God is not just the source of light but God is the very essence and the Light Himself as revealed from the beginning.
1 John 1:5
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Creation and revelation of the world come from the Light. In fact, the very first day of creation is the light. This light is referred to as Day, the very first mentioned of day. In addition, this light occupied the entire first day of creation. Light is said to be good and nothing good is said about the darkness of night on this first day of creation. A day consists of evening and morning and night is not included and reckoned as part of a day.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
This first day however manifests the conditions of the first created heaven and earth where the earth was left in a state of devastation ravaged with darkness from the beginning. Presence of water was mentioned in that sad and forlorn state of the earth.
2 Peter 3:4-6
And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
When God spoke light into existence, darkness as revealed prior to this event was separated. Light came to divide and not to unite. Light and darkness can never ever mix and be in union. This dichotomy is one of the central themes of the entire Holy Bible.
2 Corinthians 6:14
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Light and darkness can never have fellowship and there are children of light that distinguish from other children in this world. (Luke 16:8, John 12:36, Ephesians 5:8 & 1 Thessalonians 5:5)
This first day of creation where light is first created doesn’t depend on any other artificial planetary lights for the sun, moon and stars were only created on the fourth day. In fact, heaven wasn’t even created yet until the second day with the separation of the water by a firmament dividing the water body into two parts, one above and the other under this firmament.
