and God says, “Let light be”; and light is.(Genesis 1:3) LSV
When God said, let light be, the lamb of God was slain from the foundation of the world. That’s why it went dark at the end of the first day, the second occurrence of darkness that we have to account for, called night.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.(John 1:5) KJV
God went against his own nature to create a universe which was inherently corrupt for the purpose of manifesting free will. God is light. Protons are light, neutrons are dark. Darkness is evil. This is why it’s significant.
In the beginning the deep was pure (void) it had to become impure in order to form the periodic table of elements of which the universe is made. The sacrificial lamb was slain by the command “let light be.” Protons gave up their light and became neutrons, the corruption at the very heart of matter.
This is where we make a significant departure from the prevailing narrative of mainstream Christianity. The deep, the Son of God, had to become corrupted in order to create the universe. This is where the rubber meets the road in grasping the meaning of the phrase he became sin for us.
Christ suffering and dying on the cross is the symbolism that we need to understand what God has done for us, but it’s a picture of the sacrifice that was made to make the atoms and molecules of the universe.
January 5th – Darkness
If God is light, in whom is no darkness at all, then how could there be darkness upon the face of the deep?
