Gen 1:1-4
Genesis 1:1–3 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 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. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Genesis 1:1–5 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 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. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Genesis 1:14–19 KJV 1900
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
Gen 1:14

Intro

How is possible that God created light on the first day, but he didn’t create a light source until the 4th day?
Light vs light source (v3 vs. v14)
Light in v14 is a Hebrew word that means “Any object that can be used as a source of light”
Light in v3 simply means the visual sensation of light in contrast to darkness
We’re not talking about a light source in verse 3. We are talking about the actual light. Verse 14, God said I’m going to create a light source for the Earth, but in Verse 3, he simply creates light with his Word.

Glory is number 1

Pharaohs thought they were God (Goshen ->Golden Calf)
The Glory of God is the most important thing
Show me your Glory! Moses couldn’t see it

The Word - Light - Glory

John 1:1–14 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus Is the Glory of God

Jesus (The Lamb) is the Light!

Revelation 21:22–23 KJV 1900
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
The Light comes from his Glory!
Jesus is His Glory!
Pharaohs thought they were God (Goshen ->Golden Calf)
The Glory of God is the most important thing
Show me your Glory! Moses couldn’t see it
If I be lifted up!
Revelation 21:23 KJV 1900
23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
