Genesis Creation Day Five

Creation Day Five


Genesis 1:20
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl [that] may fly above the earth in the open firmament (expanse) of heaven.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his 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 fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And (there was) the evening (darkness) and (there was) the morning (dawning light) were the fifth day (time, phase).


In these verses we find the continuing creation of life upon the earth with the sea creatures, which probably included fish, whales, and other air breathing mammals and reptiles, and marine crustaceans that live in the seas. Man knows so little about the deep seas that is impossible to realistically estimate the number of species that live in the seas.


In the same period God creates the animals that can fly through the air. The species that can fly are numerous and varied, including birds, flying mammals and reptiles, and winged insects.


Verse 21 tells us that He created these animals able to reproduce after their own kind. Thus we understand that these animals would ONLY reproduce after their OWN KIND and this would not allow for evolution from one kind of animal to another.
The listed ordering of creation among the animals is the same as that in which each of the environments were earlier provided, first the water creatures, next the flying creatures of the expanse of the atmosphere and lastly the dry land creatures. Displaying the order and purpose in all that God does.
