Question: Does the Biblical account recorded in the first chapter of 
Genesis 1:1; 2; 5; 8; 13; 19; 23; 31; 2:3; prove that the physical universe and the earth were created in 6 Days and only 6000 years ago? A superficial reading of Scripture may lead to presumptuous conclusions from verses like;
Exodus 20:11; for in six days Yehawah ( עָשָׂה = made = [asah] means; to mold, fashion, to organize) the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day, therefore Yehawah blessed the Sabbath day and made it Holy 
The Exodus 20:11; account does not contain the word (בָּרָא  = created = [bara]) that exists in Genesis 1:1
So the Exodus 20:11; account is only referring to the reorganizing and renewing of the heavens and the earth. This obvious difference shows that there could be a vast amount of time that exist between... 
Genesis 1:1; and the second verse in Genesis 1:2; Psa 104:30; where Yehawah Eloheyem begins Renewing the face of the earth. 

Any attempt to ignore archaeological evidence of multiple prehistoric eras only produce senseless disregard of reasonable scientific investigation.


Genesis 1:1; Yehawah Eloheyem  (בָּרָא  = created = [bara])  the Heavens and the earth.   
Isaiah 45:18; states Yehawah Eloheyem did not (בָּרָא  = created = [bara]) the earth in the state of (תֹהוּ = formless or emptiness or chaos  = [tohu]). 

ESL 1245 בָּרָא [baraʾ /baw·raw/]  Bara  = to create, to fill up, to make full. 

 ESL 7225 רֵאשִׁית [reʾshiyth /ray·sheeth/] ב B-Rashiyth = ב At FirstFruits ... announces the Eternal's governing authority in Elohim who creates. It does not specifically denote the time of "Beginning". 
Genesis 1:1; בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים In the Beginning; should be... At firstfruits {created or filled} Eloheyem the heavens and the earth.

The Job Connection
Ge 46:13 NASB ; Ge 46:26; 27; 28; 29; Jacob's son Joseph rescued his brothers and their families from famine and brought them to live in the prosperity of Egypt in the land of Goshen. Jacob's son Issachar had a son named Job. The remarkable story of Job was written hundreds of years before Moses records the events of Genesis.

In Job 1:7; 8; 9; 10; 11; The adversary Satan roams the earth and opposes anyone that honors Yehawah Eloheyem by living a righteous obedient life. 
Job 4:12-13; 14-15; 16; 17-18; 19; 20; Satan walks in the shadows of Tartarous and his evil spirit whispers from the darkness. Satan falsely accuses the righteous and has contempt for Yehawah's justice.
(Ge 4:7; Job 2:2-3; 4; 5; Eze 14:14; 20; 
Jas 5:11; 1 Pe 5:8; Rev 12:7-8; 9; 10; )

In Job 38:4; 5; 6; 7; Yehawah Eloheyem informs Job that the Angels shouted for joy when He (יָסַד  = began forming = [yaw·sad/]) the earth. It should be obvious that the Angels already existed in a Heavenly realm before the creation of the physical universe from which the elements for the earth were formed.

ESL 3245 יָסַד, יָסַד [yacad /yaw·sad/] translates as “foundation”, “lay”, “founded”, “ordain”, “counsel”, “established”, “appointed” “instructed”, “set”. 1 to found, fix, establish, lay foundation. 1a (Qal) to found, establish, begin. 1b (Niphal). 1b1 to fix or seat themselves close together, sit in conclave. 1b2 to be founded. 1c (Piel). 1c1 to found. 1c2 to establish, appoint, ordain. 1d (Pual) to be founded, be laid. 1e (Hophal) to be founded.

In Job 38:8-10; 11-12; 13-15; Yehawah Eloheyem is describing Lucifer's transition to Satan the adversary. Lucifer's name meant bringer of light and was also called the Morning Star and son of the Dawn. Lucifer and one third of the Angels were in charge of governing the physical life on the created earth.  Lucifer's spiritual influence eventually led to violence within the created nature. Lucifer desired to replace Yehawah Eloheyem the Son on His Heavenly throne. Lucifer led the third of his rebellious angels to war against Yehawah Eloheyem's Heavenly Government.  This warfare brought destruction upon the earth and chaos to Yehawah's orderly universe. Now, Lucifer is named Satan the Serpent, Adversary, Dragon, the devil, and deceiver of the whole world.

(Job 9:5; 6; 7; 8; Psa 104:1; 2-3; 4-5; 6-7; 8-9; 29; 30; Isa 48:13; 16; 17; 18; 51:15; Jn 8:43; 44; 1 Jn 3:4-5; 6-7; 8; )

Eternity, Creation, or Day One?
 Ecclesiastes 3:11; Eloheyem (made = fashioned) everything at its appointed time. Eloheyem places eternity in the heart of man, even though they do not know Eloheyem's  (work = orderly activity) that Eloheyem's ( authority began) or the (end, final outcome).

 2 Peter 2:4; Because of the Heavenly warfare that occurred between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2; Eloheyem cast Satan and the demons into a place of darkness, bondage, and chains called; "Tartarous ; not Hell". Satan and the demons are now restrained by Yehawah Eloheyem's governing authority. Satan's spirit still tempts mankind to sin against Yehawah's commandments through the, "Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil". 

Revealing the Origin of Evil
 2 Peter 3:4; 5; The apostle Peter is correcting mockers that forget Eloheyem has been confronting Evil as far back as the beginning of creation. Peter states that the heavens existed long before...

(Genesis 1:9-10; the earth already existed under the water). 
 2 Peter 3:6; the waters of the flood had covered the former earth. 
2 Peter 3:7; the present heavens and earth are preserved for the Day of Judgment and the Destruction of the ungodly. 
(Mt 8:28; 29; Mk 1:23-24; Lk 4:33-34;

7,000 Years to Prepare  Salvation
2 Peter 3:8; 9;  Peter portrays the seven days... 
In Genesis 1:3; 5; 8; 9;  13; 14; 19; 20; 23; 27; 31; 2:3; as seven 1000 year periods. Approximately 6000 years have passed since the forming of Adam and Eve on the 6th Day.

In Genesis 1:26; 27;
(Ge 2:7; 22; 23; 24; 5:2; Mt 19:4; 5-6; 
Mk 10:6; Mt 5:27-28; 31-32; 19:7; 8-9;) Messiah Yeshua states that Yehawah's laws govern creation and the forming of male and female is designed for a marriage union. Yeshua is only referring to the beginning of mankind; but, not identifying the moment of the universe creation.

Life or Death?
Genesis 2:8; 9; Yehawah Eloheyem planted a garden in Eden where He also placed the "Tree of Life”. The "Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil" already existed before Adam and Eve were formed in the image and likeness of Eloheyem. 
Romans 1:18; 19; 20; 21; 22-23; 24; 
Eze 22:26; 44:23; 24; Isa 1:16; 17; 18; 19; Yehawah Eloheyem's governing authority established Good laws within the pattern and design of creation that reflect His moral character and life-giving nature. Yehawah Eloheyem's Words of Truth and Love; will oppose every lie and deception that comes from the unclean spirit of Satan the destroyer.
Ge 2:16-17;  Adam and Eve were warned by Yehawah, "do not eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil or you will surely die.
Ge 3:1; 2-3; 4-5; Satan's spirit of evil was already lurking in the shadows of Eden; like the voice of a serpent that deceives. Eve listened to Satan's lies and believed that the knowledge of good and evil would make her wise.
Ge 3:22; 24; Isa 43:25; 26-27; Yehawah Eloheyem saw that both Adam and Eve chose to eat of the knowledge of good and evil. So now, the consequences of sin and death would come to all mankind. Yehawah Eloheyem restricted mankind's access to the Tree of Life. So that, only through the promised Savior Messiah Yeshua could mankind be freed from Satan's Evil spirit of temptation. The Hope for all mankind, is to be restored to the Goodness of Yehawah's Merciful Lovingkindness and be allowed to eat of the Tree of Life and live forever.
 (Isa 2:2; 3; 4; 5; 9:6; 7; 11:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 40:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13; 14; 21-22; 26; 28; 42:1-7; 21; 43:11; 12; 25; 26; 27; 48:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13; 52:7; 8; 9; 10; 61:1; Zec 14:4; 16; Nah 1:15; Ro 10:15; Eph 6:10-11; 12; 13; 14-15; 16-17; )

Bible and Science? The Missing Link:
                    A Short Story                   
Romans 8:19-20; 21-22; 23; 24-25; 1 Cor 7:31; 15:45-46; 47-48; 49-50; 51-52; 53; 54; 55-56; From the beginning, the physical creation has been subjected to the entropy laws governing the rate of decaying matter. Yehawah Eloheyem established the laws of mathematics, physics, chemistry, thermodynamics, atomic structures, and  light wave speed particle energy constants. 
Genesis 1:1; Yehawah's Big Bang creation generated elemental hydrogen helium that coalesced into gigantic suns. Yahweh's wisdom intervened in the perfect synchronicity of uniformity to form these unique creation events. The mysterious invisible hand of Yehawah  orchestrated the fine-tuning of His heavenly array. 14 billion years ago the first suns fused together complex  atomic elements that were released when the dying red giant suns exploded. Nebulous dust nurseries gave birth to new stars and galaxies to forge new elements through the stellar birth and death cycle. The rapidly expanding universe manufactured the fundamental building blocks for planets. Gravitational forces stretch the galaxies like a starry Milky Way across the heavens. The swirling starry arms extended light-years beyond their intensely radiant and massive core.  4.5 billion years ago, Yehawah's Spirit stirred waves of stardust in a safe haven on the edge of outstretched galactic arms. One new star birth opened it's eyes to a perfect view of all the glorious universal hosts. This yellow dwarf sun was patiently timed and prepared for the exact moment to gather the elements for a solar system's planetary family. Yahweh's hand precisely positioned a blue-white pearl of water and rock where the warm sunshine would nurture and not harm His plan for life. Yehawah Eloheyem spoke the words that became the language of DNA. Lifeless elements assembled into thermodynamic cells with chromosome strands and protein forming atomic machines. The impossible became a creative reality as simple bacteria filled the ocean depth and began processing complex chemistry from colloidal minerals. Yehawah advanced His design to include chloro photon solar energy processing plants within the green algae. The life-and-death cycle that continued over millions of years enriched the ocean bed with nutritious sediment for Yehawah to seed His plants to expand life on earth. At the appointed time the earth shook with birth pains as the rocky surface sank and the fertile depths arose from watery graves. Yehawah masterfully orchestrated new designs for terrestrial flora and fauna. The soil became an earthly clay enriched with protein decay for Yehawah to mold creatures of every form and divine imagined array. The sky, earth, and waters filled with prehistoric life. The invisible hand of Yehawah fashioned creatures great and small. The cycle of temporal propagation continued as each animal gave birth to their young. The Angels rejoiced as they witnessed the wonders of the Dino-Mightic Nature of Yehawah's creation.  Lucifer was placed in charge of 1/3 of the Angels that would spiritually manage Yehawah's government over the earthly creatures. Eventually Lucifer learned to mask his misuse of spiritual power stealthily mirroring the Tyrannosaurus rex that devoured the peaceful giants and miniature vegetarian creatures without a care. Yehawah's face reflected upon the heart of His creation that suddenly turned away as a meteoric destruction came crashing down. Volcanoes erupted and mountains quaked with terrestrial tremors beneath the ashen shroud of death. Lifeless, silence, remorseless, the elements trembled as the earth whispers heavenward, "I was deceived, by the darkness in me." Lucifer and his Angels hid among the shadows as Yehawah revived the formless earth. A new beginning, an altered plan, a learning curve, and time to understand the twisted spirits. The light of Yehawah's healing could not remove the growing contradictions within Lucifer's deepening self diluvian spirit. Lucifer deceptively spread violence throughout the revived creation until it crumbled; time and time again. Finally, Lucifer believed that he could lead his angels in rebellion to remove Yehawah from His heavenly throne. The faithful Angels of Yehawah aligned the Hosts of Heaven in a battle of Good against Evil. The angelic rebels' hearts were frozen stars that were hurled from heaven like hail stones upon the brooding earth. The waters breached their boundaries as they assaulted the prideful mountains. The atmosphere stretched out like a blackening funeral pall to cover the demonic angels as they fell from the heavens. The chains of gloom captured the fleeing Dragon and his army in the Tartarous prepared for Ha-Satan the Adversary. The waves roared in mocking derision to drown out the angry spirits as they sank to the silent icy depths. The mournful oceans churned in a timeless daze as the empty lifeless rock wandered among the heavenly starry hosts. "How long oh Yehawah", growned the creation; "till Freedom comes?"
Genesis 1:2; Yehawah Eloheyem's Spirit trembled with sorrowful pain as he looked upon the stormy chaos. The Heavenly Father and Son renewed the face of the earth with the desired purpose of creating mankind in their image and likeness to completely put an end to the evil works of Satan the devil. The Father and Son knew there was a possibility that mankind would choose to eat of the "Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil." In wisdom, They prepared a way to Save mankind from Satan's deceptive spirit of lies that bring sin and death. The promised "Tree of Life" is still available for everyone that seeks Yehawah Eloheyem's Merciful Forgiveness. The Father and Son offer salvation to everyone who repents by turning away from sin, to be renewed in their minds, by keeping the Eternal commandments and walking in the Spirit of Holiness, Truth and Love.
