We then repent and realize that all good and truth comes from God, having also the desire to be led by Him, therefore we give the ownership of all things, over to God, the rightful owner, and who is the processor of all things, even life itself. This is being the fifth day.
Then the spiritual man, which is as a heaven, looks down upon the earth, which earth is comparable to the natural man. This spiritual man makes his appearance, which represents the sixth day. Within the spiritual man are the lights of love, faith, and spiritual knowledges, of both good and truth, which lead and instruct this natural man. These spiritual lights represent, the lights of the sun, moon, and stars in the heavens, shinning down, and giving of their lights, upon the earth, even the earth upon which we stand. A state of combat commences between the spiritual man, and the natural man for dominance, so that the spiritual man may fight, to subdue the natural man, that they may be in rest, peace and harmony.
Finally we arrive at the seventh day, a celestial state, the holy sabbath, where there is no more warring between the inner, and outer man, where there is found instead peace and rest. We start to develop a Zion heart with the pure love of Christ, a heart that beats unto The Lord. Yet, peace and rest from what? It is the peace and rest from temptation, and the warring of the flesh and spirit, between the spiritual and the natural. And as we endure this climb, even though it be grievous hard to bear, we eventually arrive at the top of the high, and holy mountain, in which, love and the Lord are found. Sanctification is in process, and we yield our beating hearts unto the Lord. Some make it only to become natural, others rational, or spiritual, but some make it all the way to the mountain top to become Celestial. Alleluia! Alleluia! Life with Man anew! We finish the race and now stand as the Celestial Man on the holy of holies, seventh day.
The seven days of creation can and does represent the generation of man from a natural man, to rational, to spiritual, to celestial man, the 7th day. Think of your spiritual man as the heavens above which is within or higher than the earth below.
“In the day that God created the heavens( spiritual man) and the earth (natural man).”
Moses 1::39 For behold, this is my work and my glory to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.
