A little note about the words, Eloheem, ayth, and others as found in the Hebrew Scriptures, when they are too difficult to express in English, I've decided to use their transliteration. By doing this, my hope is that the word will not be restricted to a possible mistranslation or a narrow view of what the word may actually express. Eloheem can mean God Almighty, Gods dual (referring to two Gods), gods as in two or more, and upon clicking on it's Strong's number 430 much more. Ayth can refer to something that is to come, or a sign of something to come, but has no English equivalent, and actually none of the Hebrew words can be perfectly expressed in any other language, but we shall do the best we can with what we have.
Notice that in this first sentence of the Bible what we see is what seems to be an introduction of the creation of the Heavens Dual, (which is the atmosphere and the seas) and then the dry Land. In the next thirty-three verses, through to Genesis 2:3 we see all the creative work done for this introduction, if that is what it is. It may be however, that God is talking about a heavens and land, invisible to mankind (unless he opens their eyes), before he created the visible heavens and earth as we know it. It seems that this is where the garden of Eden is, considering that scriptures tell us that the tree of life still exists to this day and was not destroyed by the flood.
Revelation 2:7 KJVAHe that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
2 Kings 6:15-17 KJVAAnd when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? 16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
There is scientific evidence that a kind of matter exist in space called dark matter, which does have mass, and a gravitational field, but does not interact with light, nor with the visible matter that we can see. It makes up 80% of the matter in the universe, and strangely enough, most of the visible matter seems to congregate within a web like lattice frame-work made up mostly of this dark matter.
Keep in mind that the Bible wasn't originally divided up into chapter and verse. The Torah, (the first five books of the Bible), was contained on one scroll of skins (sheep or goat), and remains that way in Jewish synagogues today.
