The earth was made and formed
Isaiah 45:18 instructs:
For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
Hebrews 11:3 instructs that the Jewish fathers had a certain and clear understanding that the "worlds"--including this world--the earth together with it's seas--were made, not just uncovered:
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
All the worlds--including this earth--was made by gathering together of previously ungathered particles of waters--gaseous waters--those things unseen--** unto one place--not several--places:
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
This means that the gathering-together was the method used to both "make" the seas and to "form" the dry land. Otherwise, there would only been ONE SEA as a result this description because the waters were gathered together unto only ONE PLACE. But verse Genesis 1:10 insists that there was more than one Sea:
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas (plural): and God saw that it was good. (My insertion)
Moreover, verse 9 also told us that dry land appeared as a result of that "gathering together" miqveh of the waters. מִקְוֶה miqveh first of all means "hope" (expressly the things hoped for in Heb 11:3, supra) and also collection, collected mass (that gathering together of invisible matter in Heb. 11:3, supra).
Then, that מִקְוֶה (gathering together of the waters) was named "Seas" and the dry land was named "Earth". These both constitute ONE WORLD of the many worlds that were made from those invisible waters. In fact, the Earth was founded upon that very same process of "the gathering together of the waters" as we see in Psalm 24:1-2:
[[A Psalm of David.]] The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas (that gathering together of the waters), and established it upon the floods.** (My insertion of the definition of Seas)
Therefore, both the Seas and the Earth were the result of the gathering together of invisible matter--the gaseous-like waters that God "created" on Day-One.
Those invisible waters throughout Scripture are used as a "type" of the eternal spiritual Word of God. The gathered-together liquid waters are used as a "type" of the visible flesh-and-blood Word of God, on earth, under the firmament.
Both the Seas and the Earth were things that were made by the Word of God as we saw in Hebrews 11:3, and also as we see in John 1:3:
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (My emphasis)
So if the type of the Day-One waters being the invisible Spirit Word holds, then all things must have been made of the waters. That would mean that the Word of God was the "beginning of the creation of God", as Revelation 3:14 affirms about the speaker of that statement:
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
No wonder that when Jesus, that Word of God made flesh, after His resurrection, while speaking to the two on the way to Emmaus, said in Luke 24:25:
Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
I am certain that these two men learned about the Living Waters that day.
The waters, are shown to be merely a type of the real thing--the Word of God--as we find out in Mathew 24:35, and other Scripture:
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
"Heaven and earth" is used here exactly as the same "the heaven and the earth" are used in Genesis 1:1--as a single body of invisible gaseous waters, without form, and void.
