The Answers For You
Question: When did time begin?
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 6000 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, had a beginning, and it wasn’t very long ago.
Actually, time did not begin on Day Four. Let's take a look at what Genesis says about that day.
Although the argument is increasingly common, nowhere in the text does it say that time began on the fourth day. Instead, God made the sun, moon, and stars, which can be used to measure time. Time actually began "in the beginning" (Genesis 1:1), or else it would not have been "the beginning," which is a time reference. In fact, "day" is a time reference, and there are three of those prior to day four.
Some respond by pointing out that if the sun, moon, and stars weren't around for the first three days, then there was no way to determine time, so the first three "days" may have been periods of indeterminate length. The problem with this is that God was the one who measured the length of the first three days and He revealed that the first three days were a period of "evening" and "morning," just like the last three days.
God, on the other hand, is infinite. He has always existed, and He is not bound to time, like we are.
In fact, the Bible says that to God a day can be like 1,000 years and 1,000 years can be just like a day. Time just doesn’t mean the same thing to God as it does to us. He’s “outside” of it. We do know, however that He created time on the first day of creation.
