Age 10 — Canada Answer: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). Time began when God started to create everything in the whole universe. He did this “in the beginning” of the Creation Week. According to the Bible, that was about 6,000 years ago. Before then, there were no days or weeks or years. It is hard for us to understand, but time, just like everything else God created, including you and me, had a beginning, and it wasn’t very long ago! God, on the other hand, is infinite.
Brendon, what a question! Yes, we know from the dates God gives us in the Bible that He did create the whole universe about 6,000 years ago. When we hear the term light-year, we need to realize it is not a measure of time but a measure of distance, telling us how far away something is. Distant stars and galaxies might be millions of light-years away, but that doesn’t mean that it took millions of years for the light to get here, it just means it is really far away! When God created the universe, everything was already working perfectly, exactly how He wanted it to work.
If we just kept on working every single day, we would get very tired and probably get sick. God was showing us that we can work six days, but then we need to rest for one day. Remember that He didn’t need to take that long to create everything (and He didn’t need to rest). Six days is actually a very long time for God. The seven-day week is for us! 25 Then Moses said, “Eat that today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. ” 27 Now it happened that some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather, but they found none.
