The day, the month and the year are all references to the movement of different luminary bodies (also known as astronomical cycles), but the week appears to be strictly an evidence of the handiwork of our Creator. Each day the Earth revolves 360 degrees and the ultimate number of God's perfection (2520) found elsewhere in His Creation is also found in the measurement of time in a 7-day week. The total number of degrees of revolution in 7 days is 2520.
Albert Einstein's theory of relativity demonstrated there is a relation between space and time.
The relationship of the distance between and the diameters of the Earth and the Moon (which are also based upon the number 2520) demonstrate that the Week (7 x 360 = 2520) is as intrinsically related to the rest of Creation as space is with time.
GENESIS CHAPTER 1 & 2
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
2:1 - Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
