Biblical Philosophical Six Day Creation


The ten commandments including keeping the Sabbath are perhaps some of the best known scriptures. However, many fail to grasp that within the ten commandments God refers to His Sabbath as the six days and subsequent day of rest that occurred after creating the earth, the universe, and everything in it. This reinforces the biblical concept that creation occurred over six ordinary days because the commandment tells us to “work six days and rest a day” as “remembrance” to His amazing creation week.

Exodus 20: 8-10 NKJV “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work…

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

Exodus 20: 11 NKJV

Notice the God did not tell us to work 6 thousand years and rest for a thousand years!  The reference is to a calendar work week of seven literal days which match those time frames at creation.
