Summary:

The number one is a fitting first number for the only true God Isa 44:6,8 whose eternal plan Eph 3:10,11; Rev 13:8 was to save the world by sending His Son to die for man’s sins Jn 3:16On “Day One,” God sent Light, which symbolized Jesus Christ, who would bring the hope of salvation through revelation to the lost Isa 60:1,2. Jesus would deliver man from the power of Satan Heb 2:14 and sin Ro 6:23.

God also established the Kingdom of Light Col 1:12,13,14  (an eternal kingdom for his adopted children Jn 1:12; 1 Th 5:5 who would receive and believe in Jesus’ finished work Jn 3:16) to counter the Kingdom of Darkness controlled by Satan Ac 26:18. 

Light represented good and darkness evil. Adam’s sin brought mankind an awareness of good and evil Gen 3:7, and sin became the spiritual pattern, illustrated by the evening and morning. Evening portraying the darkness of the fallen world, which all men would now be born into, as sinners Ps 51:5—losing the Holy Spirit that God had breathed into Adam at creation Gen 2:7, and which he and Eve lost after they sinned Gen 2:17; Gen 3:6. God had created Adam and Eve in His likeness, spiritually alive but now marred by sin, Adam’s offspring would be born in man’s likeness Gen 5:1,3—spiritually dead, separated from the life of God Eph 2:1,2,3. Morning light—the dawn and noonday sun symbolized Jesus’ salvation and sanctification Ps 37:6; Isa 58:10. He restored the Holy Spirit to man after His death, beginning with His disciples by breathing on them Jn. 20:22; 1 Co 15:45;.
