3 Then 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 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
It is clear and it logically follows that when God said, "Let there be light" in verse 3 above, it must have been the light of the sun, which God had previously withheld.
We know for certain that the sun had already been created in the beginning, as the very first verse of the Bible says. This beginning when the sun was created was many millions of years ago, as star distances prove.
After the cataclysmic destruction of the earth's surface in the Pre-Adamic Age, which we read about in Genesis 1:2, God began the next Age in His plan of the Ages. As we have seen in the previous chapter, God's Plan of the Ages consists of seven Ages for the reconciliation of all things in heaven and on earth through Jesus Christ. When God began the second Age, the Adamic Age, He renewed the earth's surface and its atmosphere, then He created plant and animal life, and finally God created mankind for the first time, as described in the six-day creation account of Genesis 1:3-31. This happened approximately six thousand years ago.
