Is The Face of the Deep Spiritual?

Hi M____,

The word ‘day’ is qualified by “the evening and the morning” six times, to tell us it is a 24 hour day under discussion.
As far as “the face of the deep” is concerned, it is both literal and spiritual as is the word ‘day’.  All spiritual words have a physical application.

Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [ even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

It is the inability to see “the things of the spirit” that keep the natural man in spiritual darkness.

1Co 2:12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1Co 2:13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [ them], because they are spiritually discerned.

There was both a literal 24 hour day, and there was a literal “face of the deep”. But there is also a spiritual “seventh day” and a spiritual “face of the deep”.
I hope that answers your question. Let me know if it doesn’t.

Your brother in Christ,
