The Light of Day

This is from an article posted by CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL ADAY on Facebook.

These are the verses that I have so far put together that seem to point when a Day begins. If you find anymore please post them in the comments if you find any that seem to point to a “day” beginning at night feel free to post those as well. Thanks

P.s. All of this note just about was copied from a post I had made and the people that commented. I will add to this as I come across more.

Genesis 7:4
“For after SEVEN MORE DAYS I am sending rain on the earth, FORTY DAYS and forty nights, and shall wipe from the face of the earth all that stand that I created.”
Note: It does NOT say “after seven more nights” or for “forty nights and days”. Instead it is after seven more DAYS  or  forty DAYS and forty nights. “DAYS” are ALWAYS counted by the “DAYS and nights” and in that precise order.
Genesis 8:22
“As long as the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and winter and summer, and DAY and night shall not cease.”
Genesis 19:34
And it came to be on the NEXT DAY that the first-born said to the younger, “See, I lay with my father LAST NIGHT.”
Genesis 19:35
So they made their father drink wine THAT NIGHT as well.
The “last night”, in verse 34, was spoken of as part of the previous Day/night and “that night as well” followed that next Day.
Gen 31:39
“… You required it from my hand, whether stolen by DAY or stolen by night.”
Gen 31:40
“Thus I was! By DAY the heat consumed me, and the frost by night, and my sleep fled from my eyes.”
First, ‘By DAY …’ followed with ‘… by night’.
Genesis 49:27
“Binyamin is a wolf that tears, in the MORNING he eats prey, and at night he divides the spoil.”
Exodus 10:13
And Moses stretched out his rod over the land of Mtsraym (Eygypt), and יהוה brought an east wind on the land ALL THAT DAY AND ALL THAT NIGHT. MORNING CAME and the east wind brought the locusts.
That Day followed by that Night the order as we will see.
Exodus 13:21 
And יהוה went before them by DAY in a column of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a column of fire to give them light, so as to go by DAY and night.
Exodus 16:23
The He says to them, “This what יהוה says, ‘TOMORROW rest, qadash Shabath to יהוה. Bake what bakes, boil that boils all remains staying safe until MORNING.’ ”
24 Saying until MORNING which Mashah enjoined not smelling, not exist maggots.
25 Moses says, “Eat TO DAY, for TO DAY a SHABATH to יהוה, TO DAY not find it in the field.”
Exodus 18:13 And it came to be, on the next DAY, that Mashah sat to rightly rule the people. And the people stood before Masheh from MORNING UNTIL EVENING.
The next day… Was when? Morning to evening….. WHY??? Because a day is only when there is light out. Only English has tricked you by its SPELLINGS that a day is 24 hours our Creator says He separated the two times but you insist on joining them. And rather we like it or not the truth is the truth!
Exodus 32:5
And Aharon saw and built an altar before it. And Aharon called out and said, “Tomorrow is a festival to יהוה.”
Not tonight but tomorrow???
Exodus 32:6
And they rose up early the next day and offered burnt offerings and brought peace offerings. And the people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.
Note the “next day” followed the night before, if the “day” started at night it would be the same day not the next day! And that day was followed by that night. It doesn’t say today I slept with him and now you will the next day…. no it goes on to that night. Because the night follows the Day it doesn’t lead it.
Leviticus 6:20
“This is the offering of Aharon and his sons, which they bring near to יהוה, beginning on the day when he is anointed: one-tenth of
an ĕphah of fine flour as a daily grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it at night.”
Leviticus 7:15
‘As for the flesh of the slaughtering of his peace offering for thanksgiving, it is eaten the same day it is offered, he does not leave any of it until morning.
This goes for any peace offering .e.g. Exodus 34:25, Leviticus 3:15
How can you eat the offering the same day and not leave any of it until morning if your day starts at night? There hasn’t been any day yet. Does it say on the day when he is anointed? Or does it say on that day and the beginning of the next?
Leviticus 22:30
“It is eaten THAT SAME DAY, LEAVE NONE of it TILL MORNING. I am יהוה.
Numbers 11:32
And the people rose all that day and all night and all the next day, and gathered the quail. Those who gathered least gathered ten homers. And they spread them out for themselves all around the camp.
Deuteronomy 16:4
“And no leaven should be seen with you in all your border for seven DAYS, neither should any of the meat which you slaughter in the evening on the first DAY stay all night until MORNING.
Again we see the Days are counted by DAYS (and not counted by nights) and also meat slaughtered in this evening on the first Day should not stay all night until morning. The first evening followed the first DAY until the next MORNING.
Deu 21:22,23 does NOT state “shall not remain until evening” but “NOT REMAIN ALL N-I-G-H-T … because after night is the next DAY
Numbers 11:32
And the people rose all that day and all night and all the next day, and gathered the quail. Those who gathered least gathered ten homers. And they spread them out for themselves all around the camp.
Joshua 7:13-14 
13 “Rise up, set the people apart, and you shall say, ‘Set yourselves apart for TOMORROW, because thus said יהוה Alhym of Ysra’al, “ …
14 And you shall be brought near in the MORNING, according to your tribes.
Judges 6:27
… And it came to be, because he feared his father’s household and the men of the city too much to do it by DAY, that he did it by night.
Judges 19:9
And the man arose to go, he and his concubine and his servant. But his father-in-law, the young woman’s father, said to him, “See, the day is now drawing toward evening. Please spend the night. See, the day is coming to an end. Stay here, and let your heart be glad. And you shall rise early tomorrow for your journey, and you shall go to your tent.”
Again night follows the day then tomorrow.
Judges 21:4
And the next day the people rose early and built there an altar and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings.
1 Samuel 5:3
And when the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, behold, Dagon had fallen face downward on the ground before the ark of the Lord. So they took Dagon and put him back in his place.
1 Samuel 11:11
And the next day Saul put the people in three companies. And they came into the midst of the camp in the morning watch and struck down the Ammonites until the heat of the day. And those who survived were scattered, so that no two of them were left together.
1 Samuel 17:16
And for forty DAYS the Philistine drew near, MORNING and EVENING, and took his stand.
1 Samuel 19:11
And Sha’ul sent messengers to Dauyḏ’s house to watch him and to put him to death in the MORNING. And Myḵal, Dauyḏ’s wife, informed him, saying, “If you do not save your life tonight, TOMORROW you are put to death.”
1 Kings 8:59
“And let these words of mine, with which I have made supplication before יהוה, be near יהוה our Alhym DAYand NIGHT, to maintain the cause of His servant and the cause of His people Yisra’ĕl, the matter of EACH DAY IN ITS DAY,”
1 Kings 8:59 speaks of “DAY and night” and then refers to “each DAY in its DAY”.
1 Chronicles 9:33
And these were the singers, heads of the fathers’ houses of the Lauyts, in the rooms, and were exempted from other duties, for they were employed in that work DAY and NGHT.
2 Chronicles 6:20
“For Your eyes to be open toward this House DAY and NIGHT, toward the place You have said to put Your Name there, to listen to the prayer which Your servant prays toward this place.
Ecclesiastes 1:5
Sun rises, sun goes, and hastens to the place where it rose.
Isaiah 28:19
From the TIME that it goes forth it shall take you: for MORNING by MORNING shall it pass over, BY DAY and BY NIGHT: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
Jeremiah 33:20
“Thus said יהוה, ‘If you could break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night, so that there be not day and night in their TIME,

Jeremiah 33:25
“Thus says יהוה, ‘If My covenant is not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the laws of the heavens and earth,

DAY followed by night is His ORDER.
Ezekiel 7:10
Behold the DAY, behold, it is come: the MORNING is gone forth; the rod has blossomed, pride has budded.
Jonah 4:7
But Elohim prepared a worm when the MORNING rose the NEXT DAY,
Why then ONLY specify Passover/FoUB & Day of Atonements as evening starts? IF all begins in evening why mention these only as an Appointed TIME commencement at all? Redundant. Or then why not mention it in all times of Lev 23?
In fact, Matthew 4:2 states 40 Days and 40 nights whereas Luke 4:2 recounts the same story as just 40 Days with not even mentioning the nights saying also “in those DAYS He did eat nothing”! Was Luke suggesting the Messiah ate at night? NO! Day begins each Day always followed by night until the next Day (Day begins Day, what a logical concept, hey?)

John 11:9 -10
9 יהושע answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
10 “But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
John 9:4
“It is necessary for Me to work the works of Him who sent Me while it is DAY – night is coming, when no one is able to work.”
NOTE the ORDER … DAY then night.
Acts 4:3
And they arrested them and put them in custody until the next day, for it was already evening.
Acts 10:23
So he invited them in to be his guests. The next day he rose and went away with them, and some of the brothers from Joppa accompanied him.
Acts 20:7
[ Eutychus Raised from the Dead ] On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he prolonged his speech until midnight.
SIXTEEN times in the Scriptures Days are counted off … like as, “3 Days and 3 nights” or “7 Days and 7 nights” or “40 Days and 40 nights” and NEVER does Yahuwah count it as ‘nights and Days
In Genesis 1
The point of “evening” marks Sunset…
And “morning” marks the coming of light…not actually day…
So the two points “evening” and ” morning” do not represent…
Evening – night
Morning – day
As most understand…
Evening and Morning actually mark the two points of the “beginning” and “end” of the 12hrs of darkness called “night”… I see evening and morning as actually 2 points in the dark hours… But both points are only relevant to the 12hrs of darkness…
Sunset to breaking of day/night…
Erev = sunset/night
Boker = break of day/coming of sunlight/coming of sunrise…
If these evening and morning are marking the beginning and end of the 12hrs of darkness…
What’s happened to the daylight hours…?
Zakar Shem Day followed by night …
Jeremiah 33:20
“Thus said יהוה, ‘If you could break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night, so that there be not day and night in their time.”,
Zakar Shem Day 1st, followed by night …
Jeremiah 33:25
“Thus said יהוה, ‘If My covenant is not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the laws of the heavens and earth,”

Maybe you have not?
So we have here a sunset and then morning. So the sun goes down and then comes back up……. how many hours is that? Sun down to sun up??? You have a 24 night??? Well maybe if your on the pole but with this text there is no way in hell to get a 24 hour time period consisting of 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark. It is just not possible with the text given.


  1. The very first place where we see the day begins in the morning is day 1 [Gen 1:3-5 LHV] Then the Almighty Creator said, “There will be light. Then there was light. Then the Almighty Creator separated the light from the darkness; then He called the light day and He called the darkness night. Then the Almighty Creator saw the light that it was right. Then evening passed; then morning came. One Day.


  2. I have been having this arguemenmt daily about when the sabbath starts and does not start , I keep tell people that it is Morning to Evening ,But no they will not have it ,They will still follow what man says and the traditions of the Jews ,This next piece I had saved in order to give out everytime I was asked the question ,Because I got so fed up with writing it every time,
    ( There are three kinds of days each month –
    Thus declares YHVH, “THE GATE of the inner courtyard facing the east, is to be shut six days for work, but on the Sabbath day it is open, and on the New Moon day it is open. Ezekiel 46:1
    Here in the book of Ezekiel we find a “thus says YHVH” that He ordained
    three kinds of days each month, which are named and have a specific
    function. Notice below that the East Gate of the temple being opened or
    closed for worship actually defines that these days can never overlap. New Moon days and Sabbaths are both identified as worship days in contrast to work days. Each day is either a work day or a worship day and can never be both.
    1) East Gate is SHUT six working days.
    2) East Gate is OPEN on Sabbath days.
    3) East Gate is OPEN on New Moon days.
    The 8th day Sabbath?
    Well lets work this out shall WE?
    1st day = sabbath , New Moon day .
    2nd day = 1 = working day ,
    3rd day = 2 = working day
    4th day = 3 = working day ,
    5th day = 4 =working day ,
    6th day = 5 =working day ,
    7th day = 6 = working day
    8TH DAY =SABBATH ? = The 7th day of rest has foretold in Scriptures.
    So the 8th day is a Sabbath day And the 7th is not ?
    Then that makes The Biblical Creators Calendar CORRECT ,
    Light = “Or” A noun literally meaning light. The opposite of darkness.
    Day = “Yom” What Yahuwah named the period of time that contains light.
    Darkness = “Choshek” The state before light was created. The absence of light.
    Night = “Laila” What Yahuwah named the period of time that contains darkness (no light).
    Evening = “Erev” The latter part of a day. (Afternoon)
    Morning = “Boker” The first part of a day.
    I have been fighting this 24hr sabbath for some time ,and trying to prove that what YAHUAH said in Genesis 1 ;5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
    Was because he was looking back on time .
    Well now I do believe I have found my answer ,And if anyone can say that it does not mean what it says ,Then will lower myself and apologise to all those that say sabbath is a 24hr day , Here is my WITNESS ,which includes the WORD of YAHUAH .
    MORNING and EVENING only sabbath ?.
    2 Chronicles 2:4 Behold, I build an house to the name of the LORD my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of the LORD our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.
    ( Morning and Evening ) singular , only a 12hr sabbath .
    So each Sabbath it is MORNING and EVENING ,
    So each New Moon Day its is Morning and Evening ,
    So each Solemn feast day it is Morning and Evening ,
    Can I rest my case people .)
    I am Totally in agreement with you on this matter , 2 Chronicles 2;4- Above Answers the question just right ,


  3. ps, And the first Stumbling block is right there and has caught many people out ,
    Genesis 1 ;5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
    MORNING and EVENING is the first Stumbling block , YAHUWAH was looking back on time , You cannot look forward onto creation when it has not been created yet ,
